Brilliant as always. Been coming for years for lunch and have also reserved the private room for 3 separate special occasions. Never once have had any complaint

We enjoyed a lovely evening for a family & friends 50th birthday celebration. Thanks to Veronica for looking after us on the night and for Rachel and Emily's attentiveness during the planning process!

We hosted a company party at Howie's last week and it was absolutely perfect. We were around 30 so we got a private room which was perfect. Everything leading up to the reservation went smoothly, they answered my emails quickly and were always willing to make changes when I had to add more people to the reservation. The food itself was great and the service excellent. Can highly recommend.

Staff were very helpful with pre ordering and patient on the night, as we were a big group. Food was fantastic, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

The service was good if some what a little too fast between courses. Cutlery down next course appeared. I know on the website it says table required after 2 hours but I think the speed at which the food was served at we felt a little rushed and the restaurant wasn’t busy. This would be my only negative comment. The food was delicious and pleasant staff. We would return & recommend this restaurant

We love Howie’s! My husband and I are there at least once a month - we take visitors from the States, friends who live locally, go for lunch after the gym, early dinners and celebrations. The food is excellent, the staff are delightful and the atmosphere is fabulous. There’s great choice for everyone ... would be great to include a daily vegetarian special on the blackboard too, but that’s just a suggestion. You are our favourite restaurant in Edinburgh and last night was as terrific as always 😊Thank you!

I have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. This time we had the roasted tomato and basil soup o start - just delicious - I would love the the recipe!! There is always a buzz around the dining room and the service is impeccable. Dougal served us and was attentive without being intrusive. We will be back!!

Service was excellent, everyone very friendly and food very good value Atmosphere got 4* as it was quite noisy but I think that’s just to do with the shape of the room
