Very good fine dining in Edinburgh's Old Town

Visited for dinner as a party of four. Service was welcoming and friendly. We ordered the "Deciding Time", glass of sparkling wine and the selection of 3 amuse bouche. A very nice way to start the meal. One of our party was vegetarian and as 2 of the amuse bouche were not suitable, vegetarian... read more

Very small fussy portions with nothing special about the food to justify the pretentious menu and presentation. It felt like someone with poor culinary skills was trying to be a creative chef. A silly tiny bit of tasteless sorbet the size of a pound coin for example followed by disproportionately large lumps of dessert, mine a vile cheesecake which neither... More

Happened to be passing when our stomachs started rumbling and the set lunch menu in the window looked enticing and extremely reasonable, particularly given the location. Considered ourselves lucky to get seated without a reservation as it was quite busy (Saturday 2pmish). Portions are not overly generous but certainly enough to satisfy. Both my savory courses were beautifully presented and... More

This restaurant tries hard. It should work but does not quite hit the mark. Having few staff it soon becomes apparent those who are interested in their customers and those who are not. The tasting menu , a tour of Scotland , looks interesting on paper but sadly the execution of the cooking does not match the aspirations of the... More

This restaurant was recommended in a guide book and I can see why. The service was very attentive from the minute you walk through the door. The staff were all very friendly and the food was fantastic. Definitely didn't leave still feeling hungry as some reviews said. No hesitation in returning should we visit Edinburgh again.

A really attractive, relaxed place for a good value set lunch, 4 choices and imaginative menu. Portions are small but that made a 3 course lunch enjoyable. Superb service, I liked that the tables are not crammed together and you don't overhear other people's converstions

The food was nice enough. Nothing exceptional, but some nice touches. The ambience was not great, dominated as it was by dance beat music that detracted from the occasion. The real downside was the tick box service. There was no warmth, no real interest in the customer experience. We had some issues, and they were dealt with in accordance with... More

I'd certainly never considered having a Parsnip Creme Brulee before visiting Wedgewood.. But i'd definatley try one again! Plus the Rabbit Ballotine main was divine! Went early in the week, so the restaurant was a little quiet, but got superb attentive waitressing, that unlike some places wasn't in your face.
