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....

Had a dinner with my mum when she was in town for a couple of days. Lovely place! Delicious food for a very reasonable price, and nice atmosphere with good service.

The food was excellent and service very complimentary to the food. Starter and main definitely were the highlights of the meal. Sadly the desserts were less 'wow'. The combinations work but I think the chocolate needed a little more hazelnut to compliment the chocolate (personal view). Althought, this was an excellent meal and would recommend it to anyone who is in the area.

The smoked salmon and crab starter was too small, otherwise I think everyone enjoyed their meals.

We have dined at your restaurant many times and never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff really helpful. We have also recommended New Chapter to many of our friends. Always a treat to eat here.

We had a fantastic dinner date! Service was warm, friendly, efficient and professional. Food was delicious! My steak was cooked to perfection and full of flavour. Such a simple dish but so well executed. The shellfish risotto was creamy, well seasoned and very tasty! The wine selection was excellent! I would highly recommend a visit here and we will definitely be back!

We had a 3 course a-la-carte meal for £70, excluding wine. It is possible to pay far more, for inferior food, in Edinburgh. Staff were enthusiastic and attentive, but not intrusive. Each course was outstanding. The way fresh ingredients were used was imaginative and the presentation of them most attractive, This is a lovely, mis-sized restaurant, with attractive decor - and you can find parking outside! We have had lunch here, and this is equally good.

This was my second visit -- always for lunch. I really enjoy the food: beautifully presented and a wonderful mix of often surprising flavours. The service is efficient yet unobtrusive.

We couldn't fault our meal or our experience at New Chapter. On arrival my boyfriend and me were one of only two tables so we were conceded the atmosphere would be lacking (it was a Monday evening) but within 15 minutes the restaurant was nearly full. The selection of wine was really good, we stuck to house red and white and it was delicious. The food was truly delicious as well and very memorable! I'd highly recommend the scallops to start and the deer for main. The service was perfect, attentive and friendly but also we were left to enjoy our food without interruption. We will recomnd this restaurant to everyone who is planning a trip to the beautiful Edinburgh. Thank you.

This is my third visit to the New Chapter...it will not be the last! Excellent service and a welcoming cosy atmosphere, and plaudits for the superb meal. NB the white onion soup is fantastic!! My friends would like to add their congratulations for a lovely meal, and thanks for a great experience.

Fantastic experience from reservation, through the friendly greeting we received on entry to our lovely, fun waitress’s knowledge of the menu and wine list. The food was fabulous and we’d highly recommend New Chapter

A little expensive for a fixed price lunch, and several of the options incurring supplements reduces the basic choice at the set price too far. In particular, an extra £7 for cheese, making the cost of this option c.£12 is absurd. Otherwise, excellent food and very good service.

This is the second time we’ve been here and it never fails to disappoint. It’s a different menu since we last came and equally as amazing. My scallops were cooked to perfection and the citrus of the apple with them was lovely. My main course of Roe Deer was also delicious. My partner loved his food equally, we were very impressed. The service was great, attentive but not intrusive and I really appreciated being presented with a gluten free menu upon arrival without asking. I always make a note that I’m coeliac in reservations but more often than not I still need to remind staff and request the GF menu, and then wait for the staff to go and get it or check with the kitchen etc. It’s so nice for it not to be a “big deal”, have the options quickly explained and leave you to it. You think it’s a small thing to do but it makes a big difference to me for a meal out not to be made a fuss of. All in all a lovely evening and we will definitely be returning. Thank you for having us.
