Didn’t think the food was anything special. My Caesar salad disappointing, risotto poor and fish and chips average. Nice location and friendly staff but wouldn’t rush back

Originally booked as a party of 4 but changed to a party of 5 last minute but this was not a problem. Staff were very accommodating and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent and lived up to the reviews we had read before going. Several of our party were so impressed they have said they will return with friends another time. We will definitely be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to the Whiski Rooms. Our food was rustic, but divine. Their 4 cheese Mac was delicious and the Whiskey Cranachan was heavenly. Worth every penny. The staff made the visit with fabulous service and a very friendly approach. I would highly recommend a visit.

Absolutely superb food here! Every course was a winner for all of us. Excellent locally sourced, quality ingredients, prepared with care and talent combined, make for a really special experience here. Great service too 😊. No complaints from us at all other than we don’t live in Edinburgh!

Food was very good and especially the Cullen Skink which was off the scale. They should do it as main course.
Everything good about this place except 1) for someone like me it was very dark and the menu was printed in small font so had to get the phone torch and glasses in action. As for the Whisky menu, had to find more light.
2) Wine was very nice but vastly overpriced. Even with the Eat Out Help Out scheme the meal for 2 came to £60
At full price it's debatable whether I would recommend or not !

Very nice menu prices are quite high for dinner but in a popular part of the city and quite a few good traditional Scottish dishes on offer.

Food was OK but nothing spectacular.
Very cold as we were sat at the front door with door wedged open (presumably to prevent having to touch the door when coming in) but we were freezing during our meal.
Waiting staff weren’t that friendly

Wouldn’t rush back

Looked forward to our visit. Greeted by 2 very miserable looking staff one was the manager. No smile or any chat it was like we were an inconvenience to him. Placed our order when the food came again staff were acting like they did not want to be there. The manager started complaining to us about the current government eat out scheme & how annoying it is for him.... something we're not interested in hearing about on a night out for a meal. Food was nice but the whole night was waste we both wished we went somewhere else.

Absolutely fantastic food, staff incredibly helpful and friendly. My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed the meal & drinks, both the lamb & fish were to die for! Plus the desserts just topped the entire experience off, amazing! So beautiful! Thank you for a wonderful experience in Edinburgh!

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!
