Singularly the best meal my boyfriend and I have had in months!
Outstanding! I hope the chefs enjoyed our complimentary pints as much as we enjoyed their creations!

Stunning meal, service and surroundings as always but your Cranachan was not as good as usual, was just raspberries and cream.

My partner and I have visited the Whiski Rooms a number of times for tastings and dinner and have always had a great experience which is why we decided to go there to celebrate my dads birthday recently. The Whiski Rooms did not disappoint with the staff, food and atmosphere being great as always!

Lovely ambient setting with a selection of the finest whiskeys and wine in town. We went for steak and upgraded our chips to the truffle oil and parmesan which were naughty and very nice. The service was fantastic our waiter was very relaxed and informative and constantly in hand if we need to ask any questions. You could see he had a passion for whisky which my partner enjoyed. Food drinks and service was 10/10. I'd come back again if I'm ever in town.

Lovely food for mains and great ambience. Ordered the cheese board for pudding, had to ask, after being served it, which cheese was which and the grapes were frozen. Got told they serve them no other way. Very odd.

Ambience and service were excellent, cannot fault them at all. Food on the other hand was "ok" we ordered the Charcuterie board and that was fine but we then ordered steaks and they were a real disappointment, no seasoning on either one, an undressed salad and frozen chips. If you are going to charge this much for a steak especially one of this quality (meat quality far outweighed the chefs ability to cook it) then it needs to be good not "ok" Wetherspoons can cook a steak like this for half as much.
Overall it was a let down, as City visitors we read some excellent reviews and some of the other dishes coming out looked great but we wouldn't return based on our experience.

Fantastic restaurant, really beautiful and cosy. Brilliant food - we had the Valentine’s Day specials of sea bass and lamb cutlets and they were cooked to perfect! Would highly recommend a side of dauphinois potatoes! Service was great and friendly.

I was u sure about booking not particularly wanting a tourist venue but read lots of good reviews and we had a really lovely experience.
The service was excellent, such a nice guy, funny and helpful!
The Food quality was perfect, the salmon beautiful, the lamb so tender. The cocktails, old fashion, delicious! The price was on the high side, but I guess this reflected the location but we couldn’t fault the food. Thanks for a lovely night.

Very quiet when we visited, but it was 3.39 on a very windy January afternoon. Had the two course lunchtime menu. Very tasty and good value for money. Would certainly go again .

EXCELLENT. The service was amazing, with our waiter being very attentive, topping up glasses, including water, replacing the ice and constantly keeping an eye on us, without being in our way.

Dinner here for Burns night on our weekend away in Edinburgh, food was good but felt quite rushed as hardly any gap between starter and main courses.
