“Another great evening”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is my second visit to the Brasserie & once again for a wonderful evening. excellent & friendly service.... not the top end of dining in edinburgh, but on both visits I have enjoyed the little twists on each dish. My partner is a vegetarian & is normally disappointed with restaurant offerings, not here.. nicely executed dishes packed with flavour & flare.... would recommend a glass of brachetto if your doing chocolate as a dessert...

“not sure about going again.....”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We have been here before & enjoyed it, but this time were disappointed - prices seemed more expensive, and for smaller servings.... The food was good & service nice but slow (though they weren't busy), and we may try it again, but think there are better value places to eat now.

“A must for cocktail lovers!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We went into the brassiere just to have a drink and it was just lovely. The bar/restaurant is modern yet traditional and it had plenty of people in it-which is always a good sign. Myself and my sister in law ordered a couple of cocktails from the vast menu-there really are some lovely ones (the mango and basil one was devine!!!) Not the cheapest (ranging from £7-£12 each for the basic ones) but well worth it when you watch the bar man make the whole thing from scratch-i think it took 10minutes for it to arrive but you dont mind as they were exquisite!! I didnt have anything to eat but the menu looked amazing from what i saw so i will eat next time i go.
We will be back!!!

“Lovely food and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

I booked this meal well in advanced of our stay in Edinburgh. When we walked in the steward was very friendly and showed us to our table. It was busy and he started to take us upstairs which I was worried that it would be the overflow seating which isn't always the best. This wasn't the case at all. The tables upstairs are lovely and because there is not many of them and they are spread far apart from the other tables it felt almost semi private.
The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. We asked questions about the dishes and the waitress was very knowledgeable and recommend dishes as well. The food was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for anything more from the evening. I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to anyone who goes to Edinburgh.
