I struggle to find any reason to criticise the food we eat or the service we received, both were impeccable.

The food and drinks were absolutely fantastic. My group raved about the how good the food was and what a good restaurant choice it was. The service was a bit slow we waited 1hr in between starter and main courses but it did not dampen our experience we would all still return to the restaurant.

Great starters and the main course was good, if not quite up to the standard of the dumplings starter. Lacked a little atmosphere when we were there, but we had chosen to dine early.

My first visit will not be my last! The food was great - the steak starter a particular triumph.

We loved our evening at Lovage -from start to finish! The service was pleasant and prompt. The dishes were works of art that offered complex flavors and a creative presentation. We liked the small cozy atmosphere and soft background music. It was a welcomed change from typical pub food. We will definitely eat there when we come back to Edinburgh.

We had such a lovely evening at Lovage on Saturday. The staff treat you exceptionally well, the evening started great with an aperitif accompanied with an amuse bouche and some flat breads. I had the duck dumplings to start which were absolutely amazing, my partner had the cheese souffle which he loved. I had the Hake to follow which was delicious, I normally don't like dried fruit in main courses but I absolutely loved this dish. My partner had the seabass as his main and that too was delicious - quite earthy compared to the asian-style hake. I had the cheese to end the evening and what a great selection of cheese!! My partner had the cheesecake and wasn't overly impressed - he said there could be more flavour - so I'm glad I chose the cheese! Overall the staff were so lovely, food was great, wine was great, the only thing that could have made it better would be the atmosphere, the place seemed so quiet by about 20:30! Hopefully more people will start going there.

Fabulous meal in lovely surroundings. The food looked and tasted excellent. Service was absolutely great with everyone helpful and informative without being intrusive. The music choice (and volume) was perfect too - our waiter even wrote down the details for us so we could look up the download :-)
