    Don’t confuse it with Whiski Bar. We did! Lovely meal in a nice cosy restaurant. Really nice service with helpful staff. Little bit expensive but worth the extra.

    Couldn’t fault the food it was excellent. My only criticism was that the fire exit door was open which caused a cold draught. To be fair, when asked to close it slightly, the waitress was more than happy to do so. Very attentive and courteous, a credit to the restaurant.

    Very good in all aspects. Service somewhat slow but given the number of customers at the time of our arrival and size of our party (9) we cannot grumble. It was Festival time after all. Not our first visit and not our last when next in Edinburgh.

    Our order didn’t went to either the kitchen and the bar. No waiter has noticed, until I asked for about 30mins later. The drinks finally came around about 45mins, and no sigh of food, even the waiter promised the kitchen received our order no problem. 3 more table came after us get their food, ours still missing… When I trying to get the waiter’s attention and ask where is our food, we get ignored twice, confrontation leading to a serious attitude leading us want leave asap. This is the worst experience I have encountered in years.

    Food was superb, staff helpful - they accommodated us despite arriving long before our booking due to nearby pubs not allowing children unless eating, ambience good, a thoroughly enjoyable occasion after having seen this place years ago on a previous visit to Edinburgh. Definitely recommended based on our experience. Excellent whisky selection as well. Not a cheap night out, but worth it for a treat!

    We loved our dinner at Whiski Room. As we were a larger party (5) they gave us a more private location towards the back. Very nice space and perfect for 5-10 people. We had various food allergies in our party and the menu and chef were accommodating. All selections were delicious, all food was made fresh, and the spirits were made to perfection. Definitely make a reservation as getting a table is hard in the city during the summer.

    We felt the items we had were a little over-priced. The cheese on Whiski Burger was so overpowering it obscured the taste of everything else. Would not have known there was actually any bacon at all if I hadn't actually seen it under the cheese. Had to pay extra for potato on the chicken entree. Probably won't be back.

    The food was good, however the service was extremely bad. Our waitress (Rachel) came to the table only when called and had a terrible attitude towards us. We asked for a Bailey’s on the rocks and she never delivered it. Won’t be coming back, such a bad experience.
