Fabulous meal with really great service, will definitely be going back!
Our server was amazing and the experience as a whole was brilliant. Already booked again for next week.
Excellent food and the waiter was both informative and did a great job all added to the experience
Only provided a 3 star for atmosphere but that was purely because it was a Tuesday and the restaurant was quiet. I was extremely impressed with the social distancing measure that have been put in place and at no point felt exposed. Well done to the team for making customers feel at ease.
Our first time visiting the Esslemont after hearing lots of good things and they were right! Friendly, attentive staff (especially our server Simon) excellent food and cocktails, we will definitely be back!
First meal in the city centre since all the new measures and first time visiting the esslemont. Excellent meal and service, will definitely be back. The roast was delicious and great value for money.
Staff very attentive, food amazing. It’s the best Sunday Roast I have had in a restaurant
Massive thank you to the Manager for the extra mile he went for us on our booking. Everything was great. Will 100% be back as soon as we can. Had a great night. Food & Cocktails were brilliant. Cheers

Couldn’t fault the meal, very good.
Delicious food And excellent service . Adhering to the Covid guidelines which ensured the safety of all customers . Will definitely return on another occasion .
We felt safe under the current restrictions, which did not detract from the restaurant's ambiance. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, served by pleasant, attentive staff.
Lovely food, great service. Felt comfortable throughout the entire visit and staff were very well informed and professional. Forgot our discount off the bill however was quickly rectified
Really enjoyed the service, food and drink provided.
The only reason I gave a 4 for the atmosphere is because of the pandemic these places are very quite.
Lovely lunch as usual; everyone should try the Esslemont. Food is great - the new nibbles on the lunch/brunch menu really worth a try. As are the cocktails 🍸🍹
Service and food were great. My friend had some issues with her cocktail splitting and had to send it back twice. This was reflected in the bill, which was appreciated. We’ll definitely be back.
Very enjoyable evening- good food and prompt service
Very good starter
First class food
Fantastic food, excellent staff and even in the middle of a pandemic there was a nice atmosphere!
Good food and good service.
