Great service, great food. I did feel the portions could have been a little bigger for the price but overall it was a great experience

Had a lovely meal. Highlights were the scallops and the beef. We couldn’t decide whether we loved the blue cheese or hated it, certainly different :)

What a lovely surprise, I thought Sonder looked nice, but it was so much better than I was expecting. The food was interesting and super delicious, we didn't need dessert, but the quality of the other did was so high that we had to give it a go, and we weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and professional too. We went for lunch, and it felt truly luxurious! Go and eat here, Newington needs more places like this, but folk need to give it a go, once you have you will want to return!

What a lovely, stylish restaurant. The open kitchen was a delight to watch the professional and calm chefs preparing our food. Each plate of food was a delight and it felt so healthy too. The wine list was good and a good choice of wines by the glass. The waiting staff were warm and friendly. It was great being able to chat with the owner/front of house to hear about the inspiration behind their philosophy of food. The chef previously worked at Number One at the Balmoral Hotel in Princes Street. Definitely, this restaurant is a big step-up from what is usually available in the Southside/Newington area. I will definitely be going back to support and enjoy their food.

Booked a table in for my parents and after talking to them, they said it was the best meal they have had through their travels of UK/Europe. Good work team

I took my boyfriend to Sonder for dinner for a special occasion. The evening exceeded our expectations. The food was all superb, our favourite was the chicken wing starter. All of the Sonder staff were incredibly welcoming, professional, knowledgable and friendly. It was a lovely touch that the chef who prepared our crab main course came to our table to serve us this dish. The decor, music and manner of the staff created a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. We will be back!

A fantastic new find in Newington. Lovely interior and the owner couldn't have been more helpful in describing the dishes, the background to the restaurant and in responding to any requests. The menu will change regularly and so the short lists of food will refresh to the seasons. Four of us shared each others plates as we were keen to try it all out ; great taste spread. Wine was also very good. A bit pricey but good value for money. Book a table before it becomes to busy to get one !!

Fabulous food, the flavours and freshness are amazing. Just what Edinburgh needed, somewhere really really good that isn't formal fine dining with a tasting menu. What we sampled from the wine list was pretty good too.

Sonder is our new favourite restaurant. The food was flavoursome, fresh and beautifully presented. The service was pitched perfectly - friendly and attentive - from the lovely young waiter, James. Want to keep it a secret but that would be unfair !!
