The veggie haggis was not bad, not as good as the reviews. A wee bit spicier would have been good. Service was excellent.

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!

Food was average. Expectation was that there would be exceptional knowledge around food and whiskey pairings- very little knowledge by the staff member for recommended whiskey pairs to compliment out food choice. Food itself was very basic and very average standard. The whole evening was overpriced for the experience we got. Would not select this restaurant again as there are so many other fantastic options in Edinburgh.

Service was great, ambience great just let down by my ribeye. Asked for medium rare but came medium to well done and was on the small thin side. Not the high quality you expect for just under £30.

Service was ridiculously fast, we had starter within 5 minutes - before we finished our aperitif - and main within 20 minutes. It was and felt rushed and so a "special" dinner for two completely lost its appeal...…..

Lovely restaurant, cosy with soft lighting. My partner had the Cullen skink to start and said it was delicious. She then had the lamb which fell off the bone. I had the chicken which was also delicious and had a very subtle sauce. The service was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. Would definitely visit again if in Edinburgh

Really outstanding and authentic Scottish experience. I had the venison which was plentiful and tender. Each dish has a pairing with a single malt scotch and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the various kinds of Scottish whisky. Brilliant!
