Although it was made clear to the serving staff that one of our party had a lactose intolerance, the first few dishes still contained lactose. After this was pointed out again, the further dishes were served with alternative ingredients and were delicious. Other than that, the server was great and the food fabulous

Loved our trip to sonder. Food was excellent, lovely wine, loved every dish. Waitress couldn’t have been nicer. We went on a Friday lunchtime which was very quite so not much atmosphere. Still thoroughly enjoyed it, couldn’t recommend enough

Very pleasantly surprised. We thought it might be good - but it surpassed that easily. From starters to mains to dessert the quality was great. Good range of Scottish ingredients from land and sea. The flavours are simple but rich. It's a multi plate experience so I'd recommend sharing to enjoy it to its fullest. Good foodie experience - which we will repeat again someday.

A very enjoyable and impressive first visit. Food was tasty and imaginative blends of flavours with careful attention to texture. The salted cod mousse appetiser and lamb ‘sharing’ platter were a great success. We will return! A couple of ‘fine wines’ might enhance the wine offer - or a BYO and corkage option - for when people want to ‘push out the boat’.

Food was delicious. I didn't have any alcohol due to dry January but my husband had a nice wine. The only part that let it down was the atmosphere, it was a little frosty and the restaurant was freezing. In addition whilst you are told the plates come out when they are ready, which is great as the food is fresh, at one point we waited around 30 minutes between dishes which really was not great. I would go back but not in a hurry.
