Had been recommended this restaurant by a couple of friends and it didn't disappoint I visited with my partner and 13 year old and we all loved it I had the chicken and it was delicious , the cocktails were fantastic the child's menu was varied and the portions generous. We will definitely be back
First visit, very impressed with welcome, and waiting staff (Angela) was very attentive and knowledgeable, and friendly. Food was well presented and tasty. Will definitely return, although imposition of lockdown in Aberdeen will delay next visit.
Food was very good and staff very pleasant and helpful
Excellent trip - really helpful staff, great cocktails and plenty of safety measures in place for Covid. Shame it’s got to close down again but will be back for Sunday roast as soon as you reopen again.
The surroundings are lovely, Loved the memories of E&M’s. The food was delicious and I have to say my favourite thing was your lovely, friendly staff. Was looking for somewhere special for a family reunion...and I found it!
Excellent service and felt very safe with all the restriction in place due to Covid. Food was of good quality and will visit again.
Felt very organised and safe amidst a covid outbreak at other establishments in Aberdeen. Very clean, good policy re track and trace and used online menus!
Starters, main courses and desserts all delicious. Service was great, especially Shannon who looked after us most of the evening. Would definitely recommend!
Great service and food was delicious too. Recommend the Haggis and duck fritter starter
Excellent service, amazing food! Made us feel very welcome and kept us informed throughout about the new procedures. Food was very tasty and very quick service. Would definitely recommend and will be coming again very soon!
Very good under the circumstances....
We always love it here, the best food and beautiful setting. However given the current circumstances of COVID-19, I was slightly disappointed by the lack of PPE precautions taken by staff, ie. no face masks or coverings.
It appears when we got to the establishment that we had only booked a seat in the bar. Hence the low rating the food was nice and that's about all there is to say.
Our first time out since lockdown and The Esslemont couldn’t have been a better choice. Our server Simon was fantastic, put us totally at ease with being out. He explained the rules clearly, and it was an enjoyable evening. The food as always was fantastic. I am not a huge meat eater but the slow cooked beef was amazing. All round enjoyable night I’m a fantastic setting.
The food and service was excellent and the social distance aspect was spot on, a very enjoyable meal, we will definitely book again
Service was first class!
Beautiful food, brilliant service and all felt very safe. We look forward to returning!
Excellent service first time out after lockdown will definitely be back xx
First day out after lockdown and booked for drinks. Service was excellent, delicious cocktails (the bar staff were happy to make us off the menu ones) and so accommodating when we needed and extra seat, we were moved to a different table. Will definitely be back, thanks for a lovely afternoon.
Received a lovely gesture of a desert for our anniversary meal x
Hello; very good food and very reasonable prices. Will definitely go back.

Excellent service and procedures in place explained very well. Was good to get out for a meal at long last which was very tasty and a very enjoyable night out for the new norm!
