About Wedgwood The Restaurant
Wedgwood the Restaurant is the eponymous restaurant from one of Scotland’s best loved and well respected chefs, Paul Wedgwood. Together with his wife Lisa they have created an award winning restaurant which is popular with locals and visitors to the city. Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s historical old town on the famous Royal Mile the restaurant rightly deserves its reputation as one of the best in the city & has a whole host of accolades to show for it.
In 2016 it was named “Best restaurant outside London” in the Food & Travel Reader awards beating a host of Michelin starred establishments to take the title. Add to that a listing in The Sunday Times’ Top 100 UK Restaurants, SLTN’s “Wine List of the Year” and more than a handful of accolades & commendations from the UK’s top restaurant critics and guides and you can be guaranteed that a meal here is a very special culinary experience indeed.
Diners who indulge in the unique “deciding time” option upon arrival will be treated to a glass of Champagne and canapes while they take their time to peruse the menu. Paul’s seasonally changing menus never cease to amaze and delight; whether it is the two or three course lunch menu or the full a la carte, the innovation, skill and high quality ingredients shine right through all the dishes from Lobster thermidor crème brulee, bloody mary sorbet, parmesan shortbread to Venison, red cabbage, apple and black pudding bon bon, smoked beetroot, rowan to the final flourish of dessert which just might include the Very sticky toffee pudding, Caol ila butterscotch and vanilla ice cream.
Refurbished at the start of 2016 the restaurant is Paul and Lisa’s vision of their “perfect night out”: The chic dining room is light, bright, stylish and inviting featuring comfortable banquette seating and low lighting making the atmosphere both relaxing and intimate – the perfect setting in which to enjoy Paul’s outstanding menu and Lisa’s immaculately paired wines.
Brilliant as usual.! We had the tasting menu with matching wines
The food was absolutely wonderful. My second time here and not disappointed. Great
We had an excellent experience and thought food, service, and ambience were all exceptional. We had a table in the basement and felt it was more cozy there than upstairs.
An absolutely outstanding lunch for 14 people (with an age range of 16 to 80!) for my mother's 80th birthday. The service was impeccable and exceptional in equal measures and the food was simply out of this world. Words haven't yet been invented to do justice to Wedgwood!
The lunch menu was fantastic and the service was brilliant - thanks again.
Came in for an evening meal for our anniversary and from start to finish, the food, atmosphere and service was perfect.
Excellent food. Service brisk but we never felt rushed. We'll certainly revisit on our next trip to Edinburgh.
Amazing food and fantastic service! lovely relaxed atmosphere, we will definitely be back!
Good interesting mix of ingredients.
We very much enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent. A good recommendation from Rick Steve's guide book,
The food was very tasty and of great variety and the waiters very friendly. However, we were waiting for the main course for 40 minutes, having to ask for some bread instead because we started to get hungry. Because we had to wait for so long and we had gotten hungry, the portions of the main course seemed a bit small with respect to the price. I would much more have preferred to be sat upstairs, so perhaps this could have been specified during booking, as being in a windowless basement was not pleasant for me, even though the space was bright and had mirrors helping make the room seem larger. A basement, is however a basement and it was a shame because the room upstairs seemed lovely.
Fabulous. Loved the food Fantastic sauces. I’ll be going back very very soon!
I enjoyed the Wee Tour of Scotland tasting menu. I thought the dishes were unique and the value for the cost was better than most other fine dining. I didn't think the ambiance in the basement was great and having the table near the heater didn't suit me well either. I felt like I was going to get a heat stroke!
Been back several times and always enjoy the food.
Absolutely outstanding! Couldn’t fault a thing (the scallops were a particular highlight!) thank you so much for an amazing evening :-)
An all round experience. Staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food was beautifully cooked and presented. We had 'The Wee Tour of Scotland with wine choices. Couldn't fault anything. Perfect evening.
Excelente y amable atención. Comida sorprendente en su combinación de sabores y en la presentación de sus platos. Una agradable experiencia en Edimburgo.
Very attentive and welcoming
Delicious food, amazing quality and great service.
Wonderful place! Food was wonderful and the staff was very helpful. We asked for suggested wines with each course and they selected just the perfect thing for each one. I would highly recommend and plan to return the next time I am in Edinburgh. This was the perfect thing for my sister and I after a disappointing evening the night before at The Tower.
Six of us had an excellent meal which we all enjoyed
Service was very good. We could also see the window where the food is ready to service. Lighting to highlight so it was different from other restaurant.
Only problem we were sat in the basement which really negatively affected the atmosphere Food great
Fabulous food and service plus a great wine list.
