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.
Kim was our fabulous waitress and handled a little mishap with another table really well. Our food was perfect and the kids were treated amazingly.
Overall is good, the foods were great, will refer it to friends
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.
Great place! Great food! Nice and kind servers! Loved it!
Food was excellent...served really quickly..a must is trying the whiskey tasters and the waiter was outstanding..well done. Will definitely go there again.
Came here for my birthday food was stunning. Highly recommended
Excellent food, very prompt service. Very friendly staff. Great value for money. Would definitely return.
Booked a table for 2 . Found the Staff to be very serious and dour.
We had to eat dinner at the tiniest table.
Won't be back.
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!
Very nice food and drinks, requested table by the window and we were seated there. Staff very nice.
Really enjoyed it, given the current restrictions
Fantastic food, very good service and lovely atmosphere
Nice to be back Food was good but service little slow possibly as restaurant had just opened
Amazing steak and whiskey cocktails
Lady who served us was so lovely & helpful. Food was very tasty. Would defo return. Only taking card payments at the moment which was a bit of an inconvenience.
This was not our first visit, visit regularly . I felt very safe, standards in place at these times where excellent.staff service and food excellent.
First day back after lockdown. 4 of us had an enjoyable meal with friendly service
Pretty expensive, and the foods not that great.
Great food, great staff - thank you
Fabulous food and drink.
Friendly service .
The food was absolutely delicious. The service was amazing along with the atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone.
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!
Great atmosphere,food & service. Especially flexible and helpfull with my vegetarian friend. She was really pleased with the food.
Stunning meal, service and surroundings as always but your Cranachan was not as good as usual, was just raspberries and cream.
Nice restaurant with friendly service and great selection of whisky
The restaurant was beautiful and the food was absolutely amazing, I'm vegan and they had a good selection of vegan dishes which were beautiful! My boyfriend eats meat and he loved his food too.
We have been to the Whiski rooms a number of times before, (always for the Chataubriand) the food has been fantastic and the staff are always friendly and attentive. We will be back. Thank you
My partner and I have visited the Whiski Rooms a number of times for tastings and dinner and have always had a great experience which is why we decided to go there to celebrate my dads birthday recently. The Whiski Rooms did not disappoint with the staff, food and atmosphere being great as always!
I could not fault anything in the whiski rooms, we enjoyed every moment. The meal was gorgeous as was the wine. We will definitely be back......x
Excellent food and service.
Went to try the haggis and it was excellent!
Decent food, good whiskey but cold and pricey......
Went for my birthday. Would highly recommend, had the haggis and was amazing. Really good choice of cocktails and drinks to go with the food. Very good service from the staff, friendly. Definitely going again!
