Took a party of 7 - The dining room is lovely, service efficient and the food was the best I have had in a long time. Members of the party had a variety of main meals and all were spectacularly good from Steak to Lamb to fish. The Baked Alaska was an event not a desert! Universally recommended!

Great food, service and excellent view of Edinburgh from the requested window seat.

The Hotel does need to focus on the toilets, comments from a number of the femail guests was not complimentary.

Lovely dinner for 4 on Sunday evening.
Main dishes excellent, especially the lamb and rib eye - and the flaming Alaska!
Special mention for our Portugese waiter, who was attentive and helpful, without being intrusive.

Poor service. Made a reservation and asked to be seated at the window. Upon arrival. When ordering drinks and desserts, we were told to move as the window seat is only available for guests eating a main despite it not being busy. Left promptly after.

Great food........but while it was an attractive enough venue, it was far too noisy and not very intimate. And for that reason alone, we probably won't be back.

We visited Twenty Princes Street on Friday to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday. The table was in a perfect place as we got the lovely view of Princes Street with all the festive lights. The menu choice suited all of us and the food was outstanding. Nothing was a problem to the staff they were very attentive. Would certainly recommend Twenty to family and friends. Thank you x

Food was amazing, but disappointed by service. Have not had this issue before in previous visits but it was like the staff couldn't be bothered. Had to wave to get any attention, including sitting for ages for a drinks order to be taken. Shame, as steaks, drinks, atmosphere etc great.

This was our third visit to Twenty. The service on this occasion was not to the standard we would expect from this restaurant. It is a lovely restaurant with good decoration and ambience. The food was good. The restaurant was not full, but service was very slow. Waiter seemed very disinterested in his job, and was not very friendly. Doing bare minimum without even a smile. It is quite an expensive restaurant and the staff should reflect this, but on this occasion they did not

The location of the venue was the initial draw due to many of the party travelling via Train. Everyone in party was impressed by the restaurant in terms of décor and ambiance. All commented that the food was excellent.
There were service issues: Delay in whole party receiving their initial drinks and no further drinks order was taken. Delay in providing also requested additional such as bread for the table. We attributed to the venue being particularly busy.
Overall the group were very happy and agreed that we would recommend and return. Thanks

Food was very nice but felt it was a bit over priced. Service wasn't great as the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. Not enough staff on. All 6 people in our party had to eat off the same menu. Either the festive 3 course menu or the Al A carte. We then all had to agree on which menu to eat off. Some wanted the festive menu and others didn't want to eat 3 courses so wanted to choice from the al a carte. But this wasn't allowed. The toilets were not very clean and the towels were left all over the basins.
