Food was excellent, service could be a little better as got the impression that students were looking around for things to do but when trying to get their attention they couldn't see us? Plates were left too long on the table after finishing eating. Staff were pleasant and tried to accommodate a late guest but we had to wait some time before his meal came after we had nearly finished. Overall very nice time and will come again

We always have a lovely evening at the Apprentice Restaurant.. Last Thursday was particularly good in every way. Special mention for the excellent service and for the way the kitchen coped when there was a gas problem. The practice last month when the fire alarm went off and Vikki showed everyone ‘exactly How to cope in a crisis” must have been a lesson well learnt. Thank you all for these delightful evenings that we all look forward to so much.

Lovely lunch, only criticisms were arriving at 1230 and waiting till 130 to get our mains even though there were tables that came in after us and weren't waiting as long as we did. I did bring it up and the waitress was really apologetic. Also my potatoes were solid and uncooked for my main. I wouldn't let this stop me from coming again :)

We had such a lovely time here. The service was excellent and the meal was amazing and we were all total stuffed after it. We found it very relaxing and the attention to detail was brilliant. You can see the students are putting a lot of hard work into this and they deserve all the credit for it. I have been to a lot of restaurants which have been more expensive but this experience was a lot better compared to a lot of restaurants up town. It is amazing value for what you pay but I would have paid more also for the experience. I thought it was great when all the students were asking how they had done and they received 110% feedback from us and we will be coming back and ill spread the work. Keep up the great work and if you have not been just go.

The soup and the dessert were very good. The Thai green curry would have been better with less meat, more vegetables and more sauce with more spices and perhaps some coconut milk.

All good - it might be a good idea to have a vegetarian option - I am not vegetarian but a lot of my friends are. It might also be good to bump up the vegetable component of the meat dish e.g. less lasagna and more salad.

Outstanding meal on 12.12.18. Food beautifully prepared and presented. Easily as good as many so called high end places in town. Excellent value for money. Attention to detail made it a really memorable experience. Top marks to front of house staff too.

It would have been nice if the server could have recommended an appropriate wine for the main course.

It was a very nice experience. The only thing you could improve on is that the meat was tough.

The students and staff were all very welcoming and the service provided by the front of house team was was excellent. The food was fabulous, presented beautifully and outstanding value for money. I will be re-visiting the restaurant again in the run up to the Christmas period with my daughter. Well done Edinburgh College on providing an excellent training environment for your students and giving them the chance to prepare for working life following their training period.

It took longer than expected for our order to be taken (drinks and food approx 15 mins from being seated) however we think this was down to a communication error between staff. The food was really good although my partners tuna had 4 bones in it, and the chicken starter was served luke warm so we weren’t sure if it was meant to be hot or cold. The rest was great and we really did enjoy the experience. We will book again Thanks

It was a lovely evening. The food was delicious, all the students worked very hard. The restaurant is a little dark - particularly to read menus, but that is the only tiny drawback. Outstanding value for money, fine dining for a fraction of the usual price, the whole party enjoyed the evening, it was lovely to meet the head chef and to interact with the waiting and bar staff. We will definitely be back.
