One member of staff was unfriendly. Very professional but unfriendly. The rest of the staff were great. Wine very expensive but food superb.

We had a joint 21st and 50th Birthday Celebration meal, and although the young ones we’re slightly apprehensive about dining in the best restaurant in Scotland. The experience was the fantastic, all the staff were brilliant and put everybody at ease. It was such a good night I can’t praise the Dining Room. See you on our next visit to the capital in December.

It was a great experience and well justifies the 1917 award. Sorry to hear Chef had sustained an injury but the sous chef did a great job - good training.

I am a relatively new member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and this was my first experience of lunch in the Dining Room. We had a superb meal. The service by a Hungarian lady was second to none, and the presentation of the food, the quality of the food and the general tone of the place was excellent. We had a three course menu de jour which, as you would expect, had a limited choice and yet I could have chosen every choice and been happy with them. The food was such good value, enhanced by extras such as delightful cheese snacks and different breads. The Dining Room is a class act. Well done!

Myself and my wife booked our meal at the Dining Room as part of our Anniversary celebrations. From the minute we arrived the service and hospitality were top notch. The food and wine also compared to the service one of the best meals I have eaten in a very long time. Keep up the good work, I'm sure it won't be long until we return.
