The food was amazing and thoroughly enjoyable, however the service really helped push this over the top and onto a brilliant dining service. I mentioned I was booking this for an anniversary and when we arrived we were greeted with a glass of prosecco and a wee card congratulating us.

AMAZING. We had a hard time finding a restaurant for our destination wedding's welcome dinner because of the size of our group, but when my husband stumbled across Lovage, we knew we'd be in good hands. They prepared and served the most incredible meal, the service was amazing, and everyone had the best time. HIGHLY recommend!

I did not enjoy the experience. The tables are crammed in and there is no ambiance to the place. Although I pre-booked I was sat at a table wedged between the bar and a wall. While I cannot fault the service, the food was totally off the mark. I appreciated the concepts and the plates looked lovely when sat in front of you. The execution however was lacking, flavours not prominent, components over-cooked, and some of the combinations just did not gel on the plate. I left the restaurant feeling like I'd been cheated of what had promised to be a good meal.

Excellent food & service on 1st visit to Lovage. Meal for 2 on a busy Saturday evening. Would definitely return but will probably be more difficult to book next time as it's bound to become even more popular!

What an exceptional experience. From confirming my email reservation to saying good buy after my exceptional meal, every interaction with the Lovage team was professional, warm and personal. The food was joyous, light, delicate and delicious. Combinations weren’t just clever they worked. Beautiful combinations of the best ingredients. A lively wine list with plenary of, well priced, delicious wines available by the glass. I will be back when next in Edinburgh, meanwhile I’ve told all my friends in Scotland. Thanks for an exceptional evening.

We were here during the festival and made the mistake of rushing our visit. Allow time to enjoy the lovely food and great service. We'll be back when we have more time to justify this special place.

Lovely menu, good atmosphere and good spacing between the tables. There were three of us in our party and we each chose different options for each course. We all thought the food was top-notch.
