Food, Drink and Staff were too notch
Lovely meal, relaxing atmosphere and attentive and knowledgeable staff. Top notch.
Really enjoyed our meal.Very special.
I visited the dining room for my birthday. The kaleidoscope bar, the members room and the restaurant were all fantastic. The staff were helpful and exceptionally knowledgeable and really enhanced the experience. I've already recommended it to friends and will be back the next time I am in Edinburgh.
A really lovely evening with fantastic food, very generous paired drinks, and knowledgeable, friendly staff. We both felt like we were really treated, and would love to return again.
Wonderful food and excellent service in beautiful surroundings!
Excellent food and very attentive service.
First time at The Dining Room and it was brilliant. Food was exquisite and service impeccable. Atmosphere was exactly right - not stuffy at all! Will heartily recommend.

The food is knocking on the door of Michelin Star, but without the price tag. Not a cheap night out, but great value in a stylish and relaxed environment.
Thank you very much for your feedback, you have made us a very much compliment. We hope to see you very soon. Best regards
Excellent, as I would have expected. And the guy helping me with my whisky purchases was excellent too. I'll be back.

La salle est magnifique, haut de plafond avec de grandes fenêtres qui donnent sur les queen gardens. Le menu a la carte était excellent. Nous l’avons accompagné d’un whisky pairing qui accompagne chaque plat. Les whisky sont forts mais les explications sont intéressantes et pertinentes.

Lovely lunch. Very quiet restaurant. Not much atmosphere. Quite expensive.
Thank you for your feedback, do not hesitate to come see us from Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00 to 14:30 with a menu du jour, three courses for £ 21.95. See you soon Best regards
Had not visited before, but brought visitors from the US who wanted a "whisky tasting". Food was great, whisky was great, setting was perfect. Will definitely come back again, on our own and with friends!
Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to hear that you have had a good time in our restaurant. See you soon. Best Regards.
Service is too slow. Our server was very willing and well informed. Is the problem the result of too many tables to look after given the geography of the the dining areas? The food is really quite exceptional; where else in Edinburgh is serving razor clamps at these prices. John.
Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to learn that the service was too slow for you, it is true that you arrived at 12:30 to be left at 14:30, usually we have two hours for an appetizer, an starter, a dish, a pre-dessert, a dessert and coffee. We always listen to our customers, so next time do not hesitate to tell us that you have a imperative horraire and we will be happy to do everything to satisfy you. I hope to see you again. Best regards
The ambassadors were very helpful
Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted that the Ambassador was able to serve you. See you soon Best regards
Excellent service. Excellent cuisine. Wonderful Whisky & Dine experience with very well matched combinations of Whiskies with specific courses. Highly recommended!

Very good food and service!
Thank you so much. I hope to see you again soon. Best regards
Toller Abend mit gutem Essen und einer schönen Atmosphäre. Freue mich schon auf das nächste mal.
Vielen Dank für Ihr sehr nettes Feedback. Ich freue mich zu hören, dass Sie keine gute Zeit mit uns haben. Ich hoffe, wir sehen uns bei Ihrer nächsten Reise nach Schottland wieder. Beste Grüße
Wonderful opportunity to taste “The Water of Life” in an elegantly relaxed atmosphere. Service was impeccable and the tasting divine.
Thank you very much for this very nice review, we are happy to have been able to meet your expectations. Best regards
We had lunch with old friends who (like us) are knowledgeable about food. We had different dishes but everyone was delighted with their choice. The lamb probably was the star. Staff went out of their way to provide exemplary service
Thank you for your feedback. The chef makes it his priority to choose local and fresh products, we are happy to hear that you have found it on the plate. Best regards
