A truly excellent experience. I have already recommended to friends who are in Edinburgh on Thursday! Good luck.

It's hard to evaluate as 3 times I've been there, the mains were served at vastly different times. Mine came first, was warm (not hot), my husband's came 10 min later and our friend's 10 min. after that. Not good. I might go back for a quick starters before a concert but not for a full meal.

We had a great evening at Sonder. The food was delicious and the service attentive and knowledgeable. I would definitely book again if in Edinburgh - I love the fact they are trying to do something a bit different.

So so good from start to finish. Fine dining but not pretentious and in a relaxed atmosphere ! The portions seem small, but the idea is to share and we left feeling well fed. The flavours were amazing! The music playlist is great also and really helps with the relaxed atmosphere!

An amazing evening with amazing service and food. Cannot fault anything. Went for a mix of dishes and was very impressed, especially with the asparagus! We also had to order a third dessert between us just because we were so intrigued!

The chefs are brilliant. Very innovative and creative dishes served in a small plated 'tapas' style. The highlight of the night was a salt cod mousse in which we dipped dehydrated cod skin - we ended up getting two servings! One cannot forget the venison and the steak plates - both complex in taste and texture as grilled, pureed, pickled and raw ingredients combine in a cacophony of flavours. I know I am being poetic, but that's what eating at Sonder does to you! :)

We enjoyed our visit very much. The sharing beef board and focaccia were very good. But the highlights of the visit were the halibut and impeccable service. Keep the halibut on the menu and your young and capable staff as engaged and helpful as they were during our visit.

Wonderful as always! The food and staff really are second to none and the choc caramel mint dessert was an absolute stand out! The addition of Camera downstairs is another great addition and a nice way to start the night. We will be back!

Outstanding food. Top quality produce cooked perfectly in unusual flavour combinations with flair and imagination. Best gnocchi ever eaten and lamb not far behind!

We had a wonderful meal here. Interesting and delicious dishes, our favourites were the halibut and the foccacia. Loved the downstairs bar too and both here and in the restaurant staff really knew their stuff and were passionate about sharing this with us.

The food was prepared perfectly and the staff were attentive and friendly. The only major complaint was the espresso. It was abominable and undrinkable.

Food and service was amazing! Some of the music choices seemed to conflict with the overall feel of the restaurant, but that would not dissuade me from re-visiting the restaurant. Great Value, Great service and even better food!

Lovely food, although difficult to know how much to order as portions were quite small. Drinks very reasonably priced. Would go again.
