Great food and great service. We opted for the chateaubriand to share which at £60 is good value as this would be the price for 2 good steaks. Drinks choice was varied and they (as you would expect) have an amazing range of whisky includes the option for whisky flights.

Lovely restaurant, great staff. Fantastic setting, subdued lighting in a bistro setting. We had the Chateaubriand and it was cooked to perfection. The tiger prawns starter was really nice. Nice selection of whiskey cocktails as well as straight whiskey, but you'd expect that really.
Definitely recommend and recommend booking ahead

This was my third visit to whiski rooms, I’m never disappointed. We are from the set menu which offered outstanding value for money. The wine was also lovely! Thank you, fine Scottish food, fantastic value and a great central setting.

Well organized Restaurants. For early evening bookings you have to be aware that there is a „second round“ and tables have to be left.
Nice Whisky flights

Wie auch die letzten Male alles einwandfrei. Qualität des Essens und Freundlichkeit der Bedienung wie immer einwandfrei. Einzig der hohe Geräuschpegel wirkt sich ein wenig störend auf das Gesamtergebnis aus.
Nichtsdestotrotz-auch nächstes Mal wieder Whiski Rooms.

Weinig persoonlijk en het eten werd erg snel op tafel gezet. Het leek er op dat we zo snel mogelijk weg moesten. Heten eten was niet slecht, maar zeker niet uitmuntend.

Lovely setting and food was great apart from the fact our whisky sauce tasted like soap, ordered a chataeubriand steak which was the best part of £60 and they only wanted to give us £4 discount for a sauce that ruined the whole taste. They then wanted to charge a £35 service charge as we were in a large group! Not acceptable and wouldn’t go back based on the fact the food is not value for money and the service left a lot to be desired. Also the wine we ordered was poor and at £30 a bottle I didn’t expect it to have a screw top! very disappointing.

We made a reservation here, having walked past it on the previous day. The service, food, atmosphere were all first class and the Steak was cooked exactly how we wanted it. Prices were reasonable and the choice of Whisky and knowledge of the staff was invaluable. We would definitely recommend.

We had a good time at the Whiski Room even though after a tour of the Western Isles we were a little whiskied out to start with. So I was super happy to find a good gin selection too; but I really hope they step up the on-tap beer selection to round off an otherwise great night out. I had really looked forward to the Steak the service was superbly friendly and helpful. Heartily recommend a night out at the Whiski Room.

This was a great spot. Very innovative to include whisky pairings with the entrees. If you enjoy single malts, this is the place for you. The selection and presentations are awesome. Choose from multiple flights, all depending on taste and cost. Lots to choose from. I went high end because I did not know when I might be back. It was worth every pound. My son enjoyed his flight immensely too. Service and ambiance were great. We had the window table which was wonderful. It was, however, a mild September might and it became a bit warm inside for me. This was my only complaint ( and not a serious one). Cheers.

The food at the Whiski Rooms was excellent and the service was exceptional. All staff were welcoming and helpful. They worked together as a team to ensure we had everything we needed. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing - perfect for an autumn night out - and the views over Edinburgh are spectacular,

We had a really pleasant dinner at Whiski rooms. The interior wasn't necessarily my favourite, but it suits the name - it is publike, but made a little more special with a beautiful rock wall. I had the lamb which was really succulent and tasty with roast vegetables. The puddings were super tasty - we had the sticky toffee pudding and the whisky carachan, which rounded the meal nicely. I must say the Old fashioned was the best Old fashioned I've ever had (which is what you'd expect from the name!). Additional lovely little detail was the hand cream used in the bathroom - it was Whisky and honey cream, and it was super soft!
