Lovely food and service - top of fine dining! However, we were adviced a bit wrong on which portions to take and ended up sharing the tiniest portions! We ended up full in the end - however would not recommend sharing portions, but take your own. Lamb sharing platter was amazing

Excellent food prepared in full view. Flavours well balanced, beautifully cooked. Friendly attentive service. What more could you want?

We booked here before a show at the Queens Hall. Wow !! Food was on a different level to anything we have tried in the last few years and we thought we had been eating well. There was not a single dish that I didn't want to lick the plate clean after. Taste is everything here. Special mention for the waiting staff who were so attentive and informative. Brilliant experience. To quote Arnie S. "We will be back"

The food was absolutely stunning - there wasn’t a single dish that we tried that we didn’t absolutely fall in love with. The service as well was unparalleled. Both our servers had an extensive knowledge of every dish that was served to us and could answer any and every question we asked. We had an absolutely wonderful time, and will definitely be making a return very soon!

Servings were too small and expensive for what they were. Although we understood the concept of cooking the dishes in the moment and in full view, the restaurant didnt have good ventilation and we left smelling like greasy food.. not the greatest.

The food was fabulous, especially the sauces. We had two snacks and one each from veg, fish and meat, then ordered another meat as we were still hungry. My issue is that portion size spoiled the sharing experience. The classic was the scallop dish, fabulous sauce but half a scallop each was unsatisfactory. Add another scallop and increase dish size slightly if you want people to share, even if the dish prices need to increase. We went for a couple of drinks afterwards, then shared a pizza on our way home, first time I’ve ever done that after a restaurant meal.

Meal food and service excellent but seemed quite expensive for lunch. Perhaps a restricted lunch menu for a fixed price would be attractive

We went there Saturday night and we had the best experience ever. The seats we were given were comfy and a lot af room between the tables. Lovely and modern interior design. The waiter James, was so nice and really patience with us - he explained almost every dish for us. The food was delicious and very elegant, fine and mild tastes. We can really recommend this restaurant and would love to go back when we visit Edinburgh again. Thank you so much for an amazing dinner and night.

Second visit and loved the food as much as the first time. The waiter recognised me from before which was nice. Scored down on atmosphere as it was very quiet. Hope it picks up during the week as it deserves to

Concept of Sharing plates is good, but plates are too small to share. E.g scallop dish at 14 pounds contains a single scallop. Not exactly good for sharing. Perhaps this could be explained to customers when orders are placed.

Stylish yet cosy restaurant with first class service and delicious food. Each dish was beautifully presented and almost too pretty to eat. Very special evening, not your average meal. Would always come back to celebrate special occasions!
