A dining experience offering locally sourced Scottish cuisine, hidden in Edinburgh's West End. A fantastic menu, using foraged items from Edinburgh and local meats & fish to produce the very best dishes.

We had the set lunch menu. The duck starter was on the small side but very tasty. The main courses of hake and pork belly were generous portions and the highlight was the chocolate pudding.
Would definitely recommend.
First meal at Forage & Chatter last Friday and it did not disappoint! Warm welcome and lovely atmosphere inside the restaurant - even with the current covid restrictions. The food was gorgeous - especially the duck starter, cod main and the newly-added roasted cauliflower main...- and the wine lovely too. The service was also exceptional, making for an all-round wonderful evening! Can’t believe this was our first visit, will definitely be back soon.More
Visited this hidden gem for our anniversary, and it was wonderful. The restaurant is largely below ground level, however we were taken through to the back where it felt very much like a garden house with a glass ceiling and terracotta pot light hangings. The...food was exquisite, really fresh locally sourced ingredients and interesting flavour combinations. They also made an effort to make our anniversary special by bringing an extra dessert. The service was great, very attentive and friendly. We would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for some fine dining.More
Food and service was good, but restaurant lacked ambiance. There was no customers in the section we were sitting when we arrived, or any low music, so it felt very silent and we felt we had to talk very softly.
We also mentioned it was...our anniversary before we arrived, so it would have been nice if there had been a small gesture to acknowledge this during our meal.More
This is a must visit in Edinburgh! Incredible use of Scottish produce beautifully presented with flavours packing a punch. Great friendly service and fantastic wines to match. Cosy atmosphere. Couldn’t recommend enough
Just had a great meal here. My wife had the rattatouille with an aniseed twist which was a work of art. I had the sirloin which came as asked (blue) with girolle mushrooms and a wonderfully rich jus.
The front-of-house young man/waiter was personable, attentive...(without being in-your-face) and knowledgeable.
It was lunch, so not as busy as I would imagine dinner would be, but the atmosphere was just right.
It's not cheap, but not "expensive" either. We've eaten in way more expensive places where the food hasn't been nearly as good. Best meal we've had in Edinburgh in a long time.More
Very glad Forage & Chatter is now open again and the standard is just as good as I remember.
Very friendly service. All the waiters seemed to be keen to please.
Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection.
Go (if you can get a table).
This is a strange review as we didn't end up eating here. I'd booked a table via Open Table for 9.15p.m. for the one night we were staying in Edinburgh. Somehow it had booked for the week earlier and we were 'no shows'. Blissfully unaware,...we rocked up ready for dinner. We were greeted warmly, but unfortunately the kitchen had cleared down already. I made a joke about it'd be the kebab house for us, but was told not; that he'd book us somewhere else nice nearby. At one point he was on a landline and about the dial on a mobile too! Anyway, we didn't go hungry! And I think that this shows exceptional customer service in action. Thank you. We will book again for the next time we visit Edinburgh.More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
