This was our second visit to Lovage and thought it was excellent. Stavros, the waiter is first class, attentive without being annoying and very witty!

I was disappointed in the restaurant. It was very quiet and lacked any energy - I felt disrespectful talking above a whisper and couldn’t enjoy my time with my family. The food was good, but in my opinion took too long to come out of the kitchen. I did not think the food was worth the price we paid for it. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to someone traveling to Edinburgh.

We had a lovely night. Six of us dined and we were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. Food was fabulous. Loved the fact I was all seasonal and Scottish produce. We will definitely be back.

The food and drinks were excellent and provided a fantastic celebratory evening meal. There were some nice additional touches too as the restaurant knew that this meal was to celebrate a special occasion. The service was very good with attentive staff. It's a shame I don't live in Edinburgh to return here more often.

Superb imaginative food in a casual setting. We eat out regularly and our rating of the food in Lovage as superb is not given lightly. We are looking forward to going back to Lovage on our next visit to Edinburgh. Highly recommend.

A hidden culinary gem, this second visit was just as good as the first. Last time we weren’t told there was the option of 4 or 7 courses; improved information this time.

Our meal at Lovage was delicious and the service was wonderful from our waitress Niamh. Unfortunately our experience was tainted at the end of our meal when we were expected to have the table free for 8pm (The supervisor explained that this is the norm at weekend but as Valentine's Day fell on a Tuesday this was not highlighted at the time of booking). Thanks to Niamh for looking after us so well though.

Food was excellent beautifully presented and served with panache and real feeling and appreciation for the work of the chefs. All in all an great experience, would recommended it to anyone interested in a evening where food takes the centre stage with a great supporting team of waiters and management.
