As always, super quality food from the Sushi box. Introduced friends to this place and they were amazed too. Great costumer service. Definitely recommend

Walking in everything looked really good. People following the COVID rules well enough. We made a reservation for lunch at 1:30, sat down and were given menus. Then 15 minutes later we were asked for drinks and food, I ordered a beer and my partner a bubble tea. We also gave them our order at this time. I received my beer immediately, my partner not so much. It was shocking, really, there was one waitress running around like they were swamped, but I wouldn’t say there was more than 15 people there. While we were waiting for my partner’s drink and our food, people were walking up to the kitchen to ask to pay, and there was a man sort of chatting with all of the staff for 10-15 minutes (sounded like he was saying goodbye?). 35 minutes after sitting down, my partner received her bubble tea. 1 hour after sitting down we received our food. By this point both of us were finished with our drinks and we were not asked if we wanted another, which we found odd. We ordered two items, one was the sushi platter (which was delicious), the salmon and tuna nigiri were fresh and creamy, the cucumber roll was refreshing, and the salmon sushi was very well prepared. The other item was a sushi bowl, however upon receiving it, we realized that it was the incorrect item. We asked the waitress if this was correct, and she assured us it was before we inquired about the miso soup we received. She stated it was complementary, then when we asked about the cooked pork (instead of it being raw fish) she back-tracked. She spoke to the kitchen and informed us that it was in fact the wrong item. When we received the sushi bowl it was very well-prepared. Bits of salmon, tuna, avocado, Japanese omelette, and prawn, on top of some diced veggies and sushi rice. All in all, it was delicious. It had a healthy serving of wasabi to go with it as well. The food and drinks were really good, the bubble tea was flavorful and sweet, and the food was well-made, but I feel it was a touch over-priced. If the environment and service were better, this would have been one of the best sushi joints in the area. I feel because the opposite is true, the whole experience was a bit of a let down.

An absolutely lovely night from start to finish. We were explained the social distancing in place as soon as we arrived which made us feel at ease. The food was exquisite, one of the best we’ve had in the city in a very long time! Cocktails were also on point, and a different variety than you see on ever menu. Would 100% be back and will be recommending to friends and family.

Cocktails were expensive and disappointing, I appreciate the atmosphere could not be helped due to outside drinking laws. A service charge added For 2 paper cup cocktails for over £20, the big poppa being just bubbles? Sorry won't be back.

We were in for the Champagne Brunch on Saturday, I have to say it was not as good as my first experience back in October. The service wasn't great, we were left waiting several times for top-ups and often had to ask for it. We were then given a service charge added on to the bill, which I think for two people is quite cheeky, I would always have left a tip. If you are going to add on service charges then you best be sure you are providing 100% customer service, which I didn't see on Saturday unfortunately.

I could not recommend The Tippling House highly enough. The friendliness of the staff coupled with the quality of the drinks makes it the perfect venue.

Managed to get in the last day of the extended Restaurant week - the tasting menu and the matching cocktails were inventive, also visually exciting and gave a good impression on the skills of the chef and bartender

Excellent service. COVID rules clearly explained. Food was tremendous. So much so booked to go back within the week. The venison was amazing and I could have eaten two treacle tarts. I’m excited to see what the change in menu will bring. Understandably there no music due to COVID restrictions but just makes the place a bit quiet but only thing I could be picky on. But book - you won’t be disappointed!!

Very reasonably priced tasting menu, excited to try again in the future with the cocktail menu. Timings for a 6pm reservation could be slightly prompter, but overall very tasty food and worth the wait

Delicious and unusual 5 course tasting menu for Aberdeen restaurant week for an amazing £20 pp. Lovely and wide ranging cocktails available - Amaretto sour is a must! Nice chilled atmosphere with good service - took slightly longer than usual but putting that down to a booked out sitting for ARW.

We had the 5 course tasting menu with paired drink menu. The food was well out together, tasted great and was beautifully presented. The drinks to go with each course were really impressive (smoke in bubbles on top of the drink for example). Overall this was such a nice treat, with friendly and efficient service

We had a table booked for the five course tasting menu and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the staff were so friendly and helpful and even though it's difficult to have a good atmosphere these days, Tipping House still managed to have a cosy, relaxed vibe. Our server Nikki was especially great. Would definitely recommend.

What a fantastic meal! The menu for Aberdeen restaurant week was amazing, each dish was beautifully cooked and for the price it was just outstanding. We are long time visitors of the Tippling house and had one of our best dining experiences this New Year so I knew the restaurant week would be great, but that venison dish on the menu must be one of the best mains I have ever had! Can’t wait to visit again!
