From Taste of Scotland menu
The waitresses where outstanding and the food was top class definitely going back
We have been here before & I booked it for my husband’s birthday. When booking I requested a window seat & as I never had any reply to the contrary I thought this was fine. When we arrived, a man with an Irish accent greeted us & took us to a table. I politely explained that I had requested a window table & he became quite agitated & muttered something about the window tables being for 4 people. It was difficult to make out through his mask. He then gestured towards another table nearer the window & said we could sit there & before we could sit down he then said ‘oh just sit at the window then’. I was quite taken aback at his abrupt manner & I don’t know if he was having a bad day but he certainly lacked in the customer service department & to be honest it made us feel uncomfortable. I had not made any fuss just merely pointed out a request that I had made when booking. Although the waitress was lovely & the food good, our experience on this visit left a bad taste in our mouths. It has put me off coming back.
Great personable and attentive staff with a good knowledge of the menu and whisky collection - we had a very enjoyable evening
The staff was professional and attentive. The food really tasty and good portions
Taste of Scotland menu 3 course for £25 was delicious and very good value. Limited tables due to covid 19 precautions but we had booked in advance. Excellent service, very efficient and our meal was served very quickly. We would certainly go back as it was one of the nicest meals we've had.
Cannot fault anything at this place. the food is amazing and great value for set menu. Quiet because of current climate but not uncomfortably so.......first time we have been here but we will definitely return soon and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone!
I have been here for food and drinks a few years back and was looking forward to coming back again.
Service was abrupt even though not busy, not very welcoming staff, shown to a table and left to it.
The whisky has rocketed in price compared to before, with whisky flights containing nothing incredibly special upwards of £30 for 4 single measures - that means one, for example, offering a Balvenie Caribbean Cask alongside some other supermarket available whiskies was £7 a measure.
The food was the biggest disappointment. My wife ordered fish and chips - the fish appeared to have been frozen and was still cold through the middle. Peas seemed to be the same. I ordered steak and although ok, it was very pricey for what it was.
So after not being asked how the food was at any point by staff, and being mightily underwhelmed, the finale was the 15% service charge the card machine suggested we added for the lacklustre experience.
Shame, as it was a beautiful place in the past, I hope this is feedback that can see the Whiski Rooms return to its former glory for excellent attentive and knowledgeable service, fine quality food and a place that serves the locals, not somewhere that traps the tourists wandering off the Royal Mile in the future.
A very good selection of whiskies including committee bottlings of Ardbeg. Cozy place. Definetly recommend for a good drams
Lovely meal, lovely location, attentive staff. Will return
Food is lovely but atmosphere was ruined slightly by a waiter being abruptly rude a few times to another couple opposite us
Food was very nice would recommend and would definitely return.
Beautiful. Very well organised. Great celebration!!!
Absolutely fantastic food, had the set menu, good value and superb tasting Scottish grub! Highly recommended.
Amazing food staff very friendly felt very vivid safe. If you wanna try whisky they do flights too which were great
Friendly warm service with nice food. Cullen Skink to start and Rib eye steak for main. Both were tasty and well portioned. Followed by Cranachan. From the offer menu, good value
Gorgeous food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Would certainly recommend for any occasion.
It was a delightful experience. Ambience was lovely, food sensational. Highly recommended. Very busy Saturday night so maybe more staff required as we had to wait a while for food and drinks, the bill etc. It didn’t bother us though as it was such a lovely dining experience. Very enjoyable.
Waiter was brilliant (Didn’t catch his name), had a good joke with him and food was exceptional! We chose it as a lunch stop but it would have been ideal for a 3 Course evening meal. Had the Cullen skink which was amazing and Perthshire lamb shoulder - Highly recommend!
Typical Scottish meals worth to try.
The food was out of this world, had starters and mains and both packed a punch, service was prompt. Overall had a very pleasant dining experience
We had a very pleasant birthday meal. The ambiance felt a bit touristy (We're locals), but the food was good and the service impeccable, friendly and spot on.
Lots of lovely vegetables with delicious salmon. Venison also excellent and starters were tasty
Service was terrible when we visited. The waiters are a bit rude.
Lovely food, great setting and delicious cocktails.
Great Scottish fare and plenty of Whiskey flights to choose from. Try the Haggis spring rolls for starters and venison as main dish.
Wonderful food. Staff perfect. Lovely atmosphere.
Amazing food and drinks, will definitely be going back
Fantastic meal would definitely go back next time I am in Edinburgh
Food was excellent but felt overpriced. Service was good overall. Good atmosphere.
Brilliant meal salmon starter- Lamb Shoulder excellent - white choice creme bruelee
Bloody brilliant. Awesome food. Hats off to the chef!!
Lovely find would definitely recommend, the food was very good quality and very reasonable for Edinburgh prices. Lovely ambience and attentive staff, will def visit again when in Edinburgh.
Had lovely meal Staff efficient except for 1person Asked me to move my coat from seat to let other customers sit down My coat was sitting same place when previous customers where there Slapped the bill on table when he seen my Husband put his jacket on We didn’t even ask for the bill yet Felt as though we were getting pushed out for other customers not very pleased
The fish and chips and pie were really nice but the burger was average and the mash was tasteless. The main problem was that the door was open the whole time we were eating and we were very cold. We asked the waiter to close it and he did but he didn’t seem happy about it. We wondered whether it was for extra ventilation and would appreciate if it was but if that were the case the tables around the door should not be booked, it is Scotland after all!
The service wasn’t great and the food, although nice was quite a small sized portion.
A welcoming restaurant with a lovely welcome, food was excellent
The people the place and the food are amazing We will come back
Lovely food but overpriced for what it is. Atmosphere is upmarket pub.
Booked the Whiski Rooms by chance, food was superb, staff were attentive and made me laugh, really enjoyed the night. Disappointed with my red wine, it was cold! But its better known for its whisky 😁
Have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed the experience.
This time was pretty dreadful. There was no atmosphere and the place felt cold and unwelcoming. The service was very ‘matter of fact’ and the food overpriced and of poor quality. The fish was tasteless and mushy with the chips being made from reconstituted potato. For £14.50 per serving I would expect a lot better.
Will not be back.
