Excellent experience, every time.

I've been going here for over ten years now. It's consistently good food at good prices, and the staff are always great. I recommend it to anyone and everyone (except perhaps vegetarians and vegans).

We took my 14 year old daughter and 16 year old son for dinner on Sat night. Overall I would say its good - we had a nice night out. Good stuff is - the food which was good but not outstanding, but good decent portions of tasty dishes. The T bone was very good, and large. Its busy and... More

I recently visited the Buffalo Grill, we were walking by and made an impulse decision to go for dinner. I had heard from a few friends that it is a good restaurant and they recommended to me to visit. We were there around 6pm however the restaurant was quiet, so we were able to choose where to sit and the... More

Was here for a meal with 2 others one who is quite fussy about certain foods. I had steak cooked to perfection as was the whole plate both steaks were great really. One had a chicken dish and I thought it would be half eaten but no chance was totally finished as the taste was great. The staff were great... More

Well we did walk in off the street and we did get a table. In the window. No back support. Hard to say why but whilst the t bone was good. Nor great. The Boston cut was well awful. It was pink, looked great but the best word was sponge. I eat half and was surprised that the staff on... More

Booked 4 a family party of 6 as was looking for some place casual and the fact its byob (only £1 corkage for wine n 50p per bottle of beer-so when I booked the person I spoke to recommended 'big beer bottles' to minimise corkage, thanks 4 the tip!) meant could keep costs down. Service was prompt and attentive and... More

Third visit in as many months but now the Edinburgh festival was in full swing and so was this establishment. It is just that: one of the older restaurants in Edinburgh that has little changed for decades and for good reason. It developed a management skill for providing consistent good quality steaks. However on this occasion (Wednesday 13th August 2014)... More
