Delicious food. Menu du jour is great quality and very good value. Wines chosen were also very good.

I suspect bread was not freshly baked that day but otherwise excellent and unbelievable value.

Very enjoyable lunch allowed us to chat to our friends without any noise round about. Really enjoyed the whisky recommended by the barman.

Had a great evening at the The Dining Room and received great personal service throughout the night. A truly enjoyable experience and would like to thank all that looked after us, in particular the Canadian gentleman who took time out to share his knowledge of some wonderful Scottish single malt.

I have only three favourite restaurants in Edinburgh, the dining rooms, number one at the balmoral and the ivy at st Andrews square. The rest are for the tourist.

Our server was wonderful, the room well appointed (the tables by the window are lovely, with very comfortable chairs), and the meal delicious and beautifully presented. We will certainly return and have recommended The Dining Room to friends.

Great venue, just lacked atmosphere because not enough people dining. Need to market more to create more of a buzz.

Very good food, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. We particularly liked the relaxed atmosphere like if we were in someone's living room. We enjoyed the whole experience there. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Edinburgh!
