“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for gourmet food or a place to impress your date then look no further than he Wedgwood. Right on the royal mile, the staff and food were excellent. We had the venison and rabbit which were amazing although my wife thought the rabbit was a bit to salty hence the 4 star rating. The staff were incredibly attentive and obviously knew their craft. A word of warning for people used to big portions, this is a gourmet restaurant, the portions are on the small side but tastefully presented. We had the full three courses and felt full at the end. If you go for just one course you may be left feeling peckish. This place is usually fully on weekends so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Desert wise the choice is excellent and again the staff excelled in offering their suggestions which were right one the ball. Well worth a visit

“good food”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We went to Wedgewood for lunch. There was only 2 groups in and the atmosphere was abit muted. Service was good and attentive. The lunch menu was OK but the choices were limited- salmon, meatballs, risotto and pigeon with a big supplement (abit too much i thought). The food served was good and parts of it were delicious.Food was good but not amazing. Presentation of food was nice. I was abit disappointed after reading previous reviews and would not be rushing back.

“Sublime food”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

11 of us ate there last week at the end of a cold miserable winter day and boy did it cheer us up. It was fantastic. The food was sublime and the belly of pork starter and lamb main course that I had were the best ever. Attention to detail was there but without any fuss. The service was faultless and easy and we had a happy relaxed evening. I can't rate it highly enough. Lang may its lum reek!

“The Best of The Best”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Recently visited on a cold wet Sunday evening on the last evening of a visit to Scotland. The restaurant was busy even at an early hour and was soon full with the downstairs also being full. The food was better than anything any of our group had experienced, with a great selection at sensible prices. The wines were also priced sensibly and served correctly.

The service was most attentive and any questions about the dishes were answered immediately.

All our group had the best dining experience anywhere at this superb restaurant and it must be experenced to be believed.

“Such a great mix of tastes”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was beautifully presented and offered a tremendous range of tastes. The service was friendly and very efficient and was not intrusive. We had a table upstairs which I was glad about - downstairs seemed a bit cramped and less lively. From our table we could watch food being plated in the kitchen, very entertaining. We would all be keen to go there again.
