It was delightful!!! We went for dinner for our 1st year anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. When the coffees came out slow because the machine wasn’t working well, they gave them to us free. Great service. Amazing food.

Food was generally very salty and over cooked. Of particular poor quality was the Haggis, macaroni cheese bake, and chicken salad. Mushroom soup was good

We had a reservation for two and ran into a friend on our way there. They were able to add him to our table which was wonderful. At one point I did hear a little crash behind me with a little mishap. The next thing I realized the waiter was cleaning my jacket. I was very impressed that he jumped right on it and it came through with minimal damage. Naturally they took care of everything and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Please try the lamb cigars!

Excellent food. Would go back for sure. We had the slow cooked lamb with roasted vegetables and it was superb. For starters we had the salmon three ways which was delicious. Dessert was yummy too. Recommend.

It was the perfect place to meet up with friends for a spot of lunch. We had a lovely window seat, looking out over Princes Street. The food was very tasty (I had the fish and chips) ! We were looked after by a very efficient young man, who even took time to chat to us. It was very handy for the station, which one of my friends was using.

This was the second time I visited Whiski Rooms. The first time was amazing. The second time it was just the short blonde haired waitress which spoiled the entire birthday evening. She was short tempered and clearly not interested in good service. Two things stood out when our food arrived. My fiance asked why her bearnaise sauce was brown, and she said that it was indeed bearnaise sauce and that's the colour of the sauce. It turned out to be Pepper Sauce. A scary proposition if you consider allergy reactions. The second was when I asked why if medium rare at this restaurant is equal to medium well done at other restaurants. She said it is indeed cooked medium rare, which is wasn't when I consulted another waitress. It was not a good experience, and we're not ever heading back, and will not recommend it to friends.

Wonderful place for dinner if you're visiting Edinburgh. I asked our waitress to decide if I should get the lamb or the venison. She recommended the lamb. The venison dish is what came to our table and it was so good I just ate it and never mentioned the mixup!
