New Chapter review
9.5/10
After a brisk 15 minute stroll from Waverley Station, I had arrived at the right spot and headed in, all set for my New Chapter review. I was pretty blindsided from the start. It’s an unassuming venue on a quiet street and I wasn’t prepared for the elegance of the space I stepped into. A huge chandelier hung from the centre of the room and dark walls lent an air of drama. The staff were super friendly, finding my booking immediately, and sitting me down at a cosy table with some water and an offer of wine. Although the restaurant wasn’t packed, there were quite a few tables in and it was surprisingly busy for a pre-Christmas Thursday....

I’ve been to this restaurant for lunch a few times and it’s never failed to deliver. The menus are innovative and always delicious. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and it’s great value for money. We’ll definitely be back!

I just love New Chapter. The food is consistently excellent; the wine delicious and the service first class. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and regularly do!

The only slight quibble I would have would be in respect of vegetarian options. My dinning companion was vegetarian and there was only one starter and one main available. I provided feedback to the manager on the evening and he was very receptive. That said it was commented by my friend that the vegetarian options were clearly considered and not just the usual uninspiring fayre they often get offered. Seasonal produce beautifully presented. The piano and live music was lovely, a perfect volume and pace which wasn’t overbearing as live music often can be. The service was second to none and for the non vegetarian it would be 5 stars. I will definitely be back

The food, drinks and service were second to none. Some great drinks recommendations to go with the food. Every dish was sublime, and were happily tailored to my dietary needs. Loved the addition of the live Jazz Music, which made for a lovely atmosphere. Would love to see an extra option for vegetarian dishes.

This was our first visit thanks to a gift voucher from family. We thoroughly enjoyed everything - welcoming friendly service, pleasant decor and above all the superb food at very reasonable prices. We will definitely be back now that we have discovered this little gem of a restaurant!

I was very disappointed to find that the lunch menu choice was limited due to excessive supplementary charges for many of the dishes. I would be less likely to return for lunch or to recommend to friends unless it was a special occasion.

Artichoke soup was really tasty. The plaice on the bone was disappointing as it was two tiny tail pieces with very little flesh. All dishes were well presented. There were too many supplements on the lunch menu. Halibut supplement seemed excessive.

I booked New Chapter for my birthday celebration while visiting Edinburgh. My husband had the octopus starter. It was delicious & dispelled memories of a horrible experience in Greece many years ago. We both had the lamb main - again delicious. I have Coeliac disease which was well understood by our friendly waiter. Sadly, I couldn't have the crispy lamb belly, but enjoyed what I did have and the grilled cabbage was a revelation. My chocolate cremeux & mango sorbet dessert came with a candle & 'Happy birthday' message which was a nice touch. With a pleasant bottle of wine, the cost was over £100, which we felt reflected the quality. I would recommend New Chapter for a special occasion.

Only reason atmosphere is marked down, is that it was very quiet, albeit it was a Sunday lunch. It has been busier on previous Sunday lunch visits, on upside it did mean we had great service! The food was lovely and as usual, nicely presented. The only other comment I would make was that of the 5 main courses, 2 had significant supplements in proportion to the fixed price menu prices. New Chapter & Otro are favourite restaurants of ours and will continue to be so.
