Bringing years of knowledge to a brand new neighbourhood venture in Edinburgh’s thriving food scene, here at New Chapter we’re proud to give you food and service to shout about.
Pleasant experience with not-so-usual menu entries
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!
Great meal and atmosphere
Exceptional food and bespoke service. Menu adapted to suit individual needs. Tasty, delicious, different, beautifully presented. We will be back.
We had a very enjoyable evening with excellent food, I had the octopus starter, halibut for main and both were delicious. The desserts were were luscious and the portions generous. Our waitress was very nice. knowledgeable about the food and the wine. Great relaxed atmosphere.
We had a fantastic evening and the service was excellent. We really felt that every single member of staff made a concerted effort to make our evening special. We will definitely be recommending new chapter.
Perfect evening, fantadtic food for a quiet for two
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.
Overall excellent! Will confidently return.
Great experience, some fine dining at the best! Got to meet Tom Kitchin when i tried paparazzi him through the kitchen window.
Lovely server and fantastic food! We had a wonderful evening.
Excellent food and service, a very enjoyable lunch.
On this occasion, a relaxing, restorative place to eat delicious food after a long day of strenuous work. Great cocktails too! Lovely staff.
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.
My husband and I had a lovely post-Valentine's dinner at New Chapter. Delicious food, great atmosphere and impeccable service - we will most certainly be back again!
Lovely food and very good service.
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.
A really chic and understated restaurant. The food was delicious and good value for the quality.
