It was fantastic! Took my dad on his birthday on the 4th of November, warm welcome and quickly seated to a table I booked, Lucas was our waiter and he was friendly, the food was amazing, so good that it has made me love lamb again and a delicious cream brulee. My dad enjoyed his whiskey flight 1 tasting and of course I helped drink it. can't wait to go back.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on 3 November 2017

A little gem in the centre of Edinburgh. We were looking for good quality Scottish food and were and the only disappointment was no Scallops for a starter. This was probably a blessing in disguise as the cullen skink, served with homemade bread, was absolutely fantastic. I followed this with venison whilst my wife had Haggis, neeps and tatties. Can you get any more local? Both were superb. My wife managed a white chocolate and raspberry creme brulee, whilst I could only manage a single malt. Our waiter, Lukas, was able to match my description of a whisky and recommended a Laphroaig Quarter Cask which was perfect for my taste. If you want a taste of real Scotland with great service that isn't going to break the bank I would make sure you book so you are not disappointed. If I return to Edinburgh I will definitely visit The Whiski Room again.

The Manager and Waiting staff were fantastic, Myself and my wife were in Edinburgh for a one night stay and the Whiski Rooms was recommended by our son, so we decided to have an evening meal on our first night.

Lamb shoulder was good, atmosphere was great, will go back.

Best steak I've had in a long time. Good drinks, too! Just be aware their kitchen closes at a certain time so food is not available late. This place was recommended to us by a local police officer acquaintance... And cops know their food!

Went to whiski rooms with my boyfriend and we both had a great time. Andrea, our server, was really lovely and attentive. Only thing is a lack of veggie options (I'm veggie my bf is not), I know it doesn't claim to be veggie friendly but maybe one more option would have been nice. Overall it was tasty and had a good atmosphere.

Asked for a quiet table and were shown to a lovely table at the back despite the restaurant being full and buzzing. Food was amazing, something for everyone, and we weren't rushed in any way. Was lovely to hear the bar tenders sharing their knowledge of all the whiskeys to the visitors/customers.

 (Toronto)·Dined on 14 July 2017

We ate early on Friday so we could get to a 7pm show in Princes St. Garden and there were plenty of tables available. I'd still recommend reservations. The food was good; everyone enjoyed their meal and the desserts were outstanding. The servers work as a team with several people taking drinks orders, food orders and serving. The star of the place is the whisky list; it is huge, so they don't always have everything on the list.
