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.
Outstanding food and service. Made my Mum feel really special on her birthday.
Lovely restaurant, excellent food and friendly staff!
Good quality food, well presented and prepared. Thank you for good veg options - lovely cauliflower steak dish. Good service by a confident front of house team. A refreshing find in amongst the standard pub grub on the Royal Mile. The Royal Mile should be a showcase street for Scotland’s finest food, drink and shopping - well done Wedgewood Team for setting this standard - hopefully we will see others follow and see a Royal Mile to be proud of!!!
Best overall experience (others tried: Number One and Castle Terrace)
We had a wonderful time. The cost was about right. The service and food was excellent.
A tremendous restaurant - with the most wonderful and friendly service in addition to the best vegetarian food in Edinburgh
Very good quality, as ever.
Well-paced, informative staff and fresh-tasting small dishes on the tasting menu. Wine flights were beautiful.
Food is nice. They are very considerate. We ordered a main course for our kids and they help to separate into 2 portion. Nice service.
I have been to Wedgwood a few times and it has never disappointed - and this time was no different. The food is delicious and the portions are generous for a fine dining establishment. The drinks menu is also impressive. The lunch menu is amazing value for money. The service is above and beyond excellent; the staff have a real enthusiasm for what they do and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. My friend and I had a very long lunch and at no point did we feel rushed, quite the opposite. Definitely recommend if you're in Edinburgh.
We had a fantastic Birthday lunch yesterday. Wedgwood has always given us a very friendly welcome and never fails to deliver on fantastic food and service.
Fabulous sea bass and great value two course lunch
Magnífico restaurante y estupendo menú de mediodía de tres platos a un precio más que razonable. Buen ambiente y buen servicio. Totalmente recomendable.
Sorry to say: This did not at all live up to the expectstions. The food was not that great - we had the lunchon - the fish in batter is better at the local fish and chips shop. The hostess was a sour, not-friendly woman - she brighted up as we left - and felt we had to give her her 10 prosent even she or the restaurant was not worth it. To everyone who ask, I would say: Don’t bother. At all. Horrible.
I had an excellent Birthday dinner - thank you very much. Everything was excellent, from the welcome to dinner order to goodbye at end of evening. And of course the wee tour of Scotland menu, was delicious. Thanks again for a very enjoyable, memorable dinner.
Very nice evening for our 10th wedding anniversary. The FOH staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. A really good evening. Thank you.
The lunch menu was exceptional value for money but most importantly was absolutely delicious. The service was efficient and friendly. Nothing to fault. Would highly recommend.
Amazing dinner. Our family dined at Wedgwood on our last night In Edinburgh and the restaurant was lined up to the hype. The staff was very friendly and the food was incredible. We have peanut and nut allergies and they were easily accommodated. Highlights include the savory bread pudding with basil ice cream, smoked salmon, and all of the deserts. Excellent wine list. Overall, a wonderful take on Scottish cuisine.
Great experience, tasting menu with paired wines was fantastic. Highly recommend
The quality and presentation of the dishes are top notch, wine list although not extensive but has reasonably good selection at very reasonable prices. The decoration is chic and modern with simple furnishings. The restaurant can get very noisy though.
My wife had asked for her steal to be pink but not bleeding. Instead it came through medium. Also it was tough. My lamb was excellent; also very tender.
We had such a special meal here for my graduation dinner. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing; the food was absolutely delicious and the service was faultless - friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
This is an amazing place. From our arrival to departure (soup to nuts) it was splendid. Ambience, food, wine and staff. 10/10 for all. The best experience by far in our long weekend in Edinburgh. Just go.
Thanks for looking after us so well last night and allowing us to celebrate our son’s graduation. It was excellent- food, service and atmosphere just right. Many thanks !
