Description: With the scenery of Edinburgh Castle and the Firth of Forth, the Forth Floor Restaurant at Harvey Nichols certainly has a sense of drama about it. The stylish elements of the decor, such as the circular lights which begin to glow red once the sky becomes darker, and the Scottish flavours found through the restaurant menu all inspire an adventurous dining experience with the finest quality food. Meanwhile, the brasserie makes for an enjoyable alternative, presenting a modern take on conventional European cuisine, and the extensive wine list includes over 350 different varieties of wines and champagnes. During the summer months, it is also possible to enjoy meals outside on the large terrace, overlooking all of Edinburgh.

Visited for evening cocktails. Staff all very friendly and great service, drinks were expertly mixed and served quickly. A big thank you to the security guard who, seeing me trying to take pictures of the view through the windows, very kindly offered t take me onto the balcony for pictures and didnt try rushing me back in. excellent service.

Hi,

It’s great to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Forth Floor so much. We do hope you got some good photos to remember us by! It really is a lovely view, particularly in the warmer summer months when we have seating out on the terrace. Hopefully you’ll be back again then and get to enjoy a sunset outside with some more cocktails. Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to your next visit.

Kind regards

The Forth Floor Team

We enjoyed a 1st class service with our meal from the Forth Floor's simple breakfast menu. Nothing was too much trouble and we were quickly served with excellent tasty food - plus a great view on a cold February Friday morning!

We would be happy to eat there again on our next visit

Wonderful lunch at the 4th floor restaurant. The views of Edinburgh are incredible, even on an overcast January afternoon. The decor is warm and modern, and the service attentive. The food was great quality, fresh and served in generous portions. Loved the sea bass dish, which was carefully adapted to be dairy free. My colleagues chicken polenta dish was equally tasty. Will definitely return.

I have been to the Forth Floor restaurant on four occasions over the last few years. It is a nice treat if you are out for a day of shopping/pampering and would like a special meal - or indeed for a celebration.

My last visit was at the weekend when in Edinburgh on business. We went for the £30 3-course menu.

The food is top quality and the service just right. The staff are attentive, friendly and very efficient. During the meal I enjoyed a delicious, light, smoked salmon starter, followed by a chicken main course and the cheese to finish. Each course was cooked to perfection and wonderfully presented.

The restaurant is designed in an airy, stylish way and has wonderful views looking over towards George St.

I would highly recommend.
