About The Spiritualist Aberdeen
Contemporary, fresh, locally sourced, seasonal and expertly crafted are the hallmarks of a menu designed to showcase the best of Scottish.
We enjoyed our meal and the service was spot on, he was really polite and helpful throughout. We used a Spree voucher but even if we hadn't it still would of been value for money.
Jack was an excellent waiter . Looked after us .
Booth booked for my 22nd birthday. Plenty of room for us all, great service & lovely staff. Disco ball cocktail was amazing, highly recommend!
Amazing service. Extremely busy night but had booked in advance, service was first class by all. Very attentive staff.
Great cocktails and friendly staff :)
Everyone really enjoyed the cocktail class and were singing praises for Adam who seemed to have a vast amount of knowledge and continued to humour us as we plagued him with questions. Thank you for being adaptable with offering mocktails and cocktails. Although this was thoroughly enjoyed by all, I am sad to say that we were really very disappointed with the food in the bar. We were all looking forward to it having never been before and with the menu looking quite different were excited to see if it met our expectations. We waited a good 40 minutes before our food arrived and when it did it was a huge let down and came up with too big a gap between each run of 3 meals. The chips were either luke warm or cold, the burgers were luke warm and the quantities for the burgers were a let-down given the price of them. Some of the orders weren’t right, it seemed everyone got a mix of someone else’s toppings on their burger and there was nothing to dress up the plate like a wee bit of salad. The waiter was ok at dealing with the chip situation as we didn’t think it was worth complaining about anything else given we had already waiting too long, however he did ponder a fair bit before offering fresh chips be made. Due to this experience, my team have said that they won’t be returning for food anytime soon which as I am sure you will feel, is disappointing.
Cocktails were so fine, not watered down unlike some places in town! Service was quick and the staff were friendly and helpful! Great atmosphere as well! 😊
Expensive but pretty
I was really disappointed with the whole experience on Saturday night. When we arrived we were put at a table right next to the door which was freezing. We were thankfully moved to another area, but no one came to offer us food menus or take drink orders - we had to try and catch the attention of 1 of the waiting staff. After placing the food orders we then had another hour wait for it to be ready and when it arrived it was cold and extremely disappointing.
The guy that served us was really polite, the ( I assume) manager apologised for the disturbances of the people taking pictures etc however it wasn't an issue at all. Will deffinately return
Only gripe was that the food we received was luke warm for two of us. We had waited over 30 mins for our food (which is fine as it was busy) so by that point we just wanted to eat as we were pretty hungry. We should have said something at the time but just wanted to leave the feedback so it could be corrected. One of us didn’t get the correct order but the waitress kindly took this off the bill. Drinks were great! Would return just for drinks next time.
Food was nice, drinks lovely especially the ice sphere cocktails. Service was quite slow but was fine for us as we were having a leisurely afternoon!
I usually would only post reviews if the place has done something exceptionally and needs to be recognised for their efforts. However, my experience at The Spiritualist was far from exceptional. We had a reservation booked for 8 people at 12:30PM on a Sunday (the place only opens at 12:00PM so it was practically empty when we arrived). There seemed to only be one server. Drinks (which were one draft coke, two bottled cokes and 3 coffees) took about 45 minutes to arrive at the table, and the server had to reminded regarding the drinks. The coffees were not only extremely bitter but also was not ground currently as coffee ground were still floating around. The food order was also not terribly difficult, however, we had to wait over an hour and a half for our food to arrive at our table. At this point we were already pretty frustrated. The chicken was dry and overcooked. The salmon and cream cheese ciabatta hardly had any cream cheese in it. The muffin for the egg benny was so hard that most of it was left behind on the plate. While the place might be beautiful the service and food is a let down. We were not the only table to experience this as there was a table behind us who also seemed to have the same issues. The only good thing to come from this visit was that the server removed the terrible coffees from the bill as well as the sliders due and offered a 25% discount on the food bill. I would definitely have not paid full price for what and how we were served. It is a shame as the place is beautiful but the food and service were terrible! Sadly I do not plan to be back!
Very polite bar staff really impressed
Great day out already booked to come back 23rd November :)
Really pleased. Will definitely be back for private dining!
The cocktails were amazing and the staff were lovely! Good night for a mini henny!
Fab food and drink. Very attentative service thank you
Good service good food and drinks, however cocktails maybe a little bit pricey for the amount you get. Would still return !!
only comments: music could be a bit less loud and food took a little bit longer than expected to get ready. great place though with smiling stuff and very interesting menu .will definitely visit very often
Went for a day time visit to The Spiritualist for lunch. It has very relaxing atmosphere and lovely aesthetic. Their food offering is quite extensive and has a lot of options for vegetarians. The staff were lovely, I’ll defiantly be back!
I have already filled in a review. Our meal was a bad experience. The waiter tried very hard to put things right but it was a disaster. The service was deadly slow. Two of our party went to bed without dinner. Stick to serving fancy cocktails.
We had booked for drinks only for 6.30pm for 6 people however we ended up with 7 people and there were no spare seats for my extra guest which was a bit annoying. All in all it was a good evening and the drinks were great - we went for a tree and also a glitter ball as this appears to be better value for money;
I had the most amazing time on Friday for me and my sisters 21st birthday. Thank you to Ben and Shaun - especially Shaun for looking after us all! Can’t wait to come back!
