Broad Selection of Whisky & Pretty Good Food

Incredible whisky selection, available for single orders or flights. The food was very good as well. I ordered the scotch egg, which was fantastic - seasoned and cooked perfectly. I also had the beef wellington, which was good, not great. I thought the quality of the beef could have been a... read more

Love this place. Have made two trips to Highlands, having discovered this gem on a visit last summer. We were a party of three, including my teenage daughter. The service is attentive, and the wait staff makes a point to be accomodating and engaging for her as well as my husband and I. The whiskey list is extensive and craft... More

Really loved this restaurant. It was a cold, blustery night and we couldn't have picked a cozier location for a good dinner. The menu is lots of fun - with Scottish dishes as well as other choices for picky eaters. The service was very friendly too - helping to advise without being pushy. Last of all - for a nice... More

Went there for drinks with friends while visiting NYC. Drinks and nibbles were okay, but service was poor and slow! One of the waitress was polite and attentive, but unfortunately she was the only one and after have spent $180,00 we got chased down the street by the waiter because we forgot to leave a tip!!! He questioned if that... More

Hoping to have a good time in New York, I brought my friends from London to this bar. After the terrible service I will never come back again. The place has a totally wrong view of the way you should treat your client. My family is coming to visit me soon and I don't know yet where I will take... More

Lively crowd that night, mixture of young locals and a good smattering of ex-pats. The whisky selection is so large, it has a very well written catalogue to help with choosing. The staff know their scotch and can help you make a choice. It can get very busy but stays lively without being so loud as to be unbearable.

We sat out front under the canopy where the heaters were working and there was a slight rain. We shared the rib eye for two which was served to our liking, The waiter was attentive and courtesy.
