Went last night as guests of the hotel for my boyfriends birthday and overall was disappointed with the service. Staff either looked rushed or doing nothing, no one had any idea about the hotel’s Sunday deal which is joint with the restaurant causing a lot of stress, mains were brought out before we finished our starters and just left on the side of the table, and menus were taken away before we even had the chance to order. Overall it was a disappointing experience for the service expected for the restaurant. You could see our server was trying her hardest to manage the section however it was obvious to us and due to her comments that other members of staff were not pulling their weight to provide a good service.
We decided to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant after a long travel time coming from the US to Edinburgh. That was a wise decision. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The service was also very good, especially considering the restaurant was short staffed that night so they had to work extra hard to take care of everything.
We enjoyed our meal for £22.50 each on set menu for 3 courses additional supplement for steak.We enjoyed all 3 courses which I thought good value for money.Service was good and efficient,the ambiance was nice and quiet.
The food was delicious but the restaurant was a little soulless. Our mains were served very swiftly after our starters were cleared making it feel rather rushed.
Food was nice, prompt pleasant service. Fairly typical hotel restaurant, nice enough but not much atmosphere.
The food was amazing and the staff are nice and would recommend this restaurant to anyone..
Food excellent, staff very friendly. Excellent value for money
Food and service was great. The speakers weren’t working so it felt like I was eating in an exam hall. It was extremely quiet. The food made up for it though.
Service was good the main thing missing in the restaurant was it was far to quiet it would of been nice just to have a little music in the background, as you could practically hear people eating with it being to quiet, lacking in atmosphere 😕
Staff were very friendly. However, portion size was in the small size and was definitely not value for money.
The atmosphere is bit unusual at first because it’s in a big room which feels like a big church hall, however once we settled in and were met with great service, food and drinks we really relaxed. Great attentive staff, lovely choice of food, great choice of more exclusive spirits etc.
Elliots Restaurant in Edinburgh is always a must when in the area doing some shopping, quick & easy to book a table online and the staff are always fantastic!
I was down visiting some family in the area and fancied a spot of dinner, so booked for 7:15pm, upon arriving we were greeted with a very helpful & polite waitress who showed us to our table. They no longer have menus to view it can all be done via your mobile, which is easy and very covid friendly. Our drinks order was taken first by the manager, she was so friendly & bubbly, and had a very good sense of humour which is what you want when dining out. Myself, Dad & Brother all had the Burger and asked for Cheese & Bacon as an extra to which the waitress had to issue with doing, my Mum then had the Steak Sandwich. Around half an hour later our food was served, roasting hot & well presented.
I would definietly give the food 10/10, the burger was just right & the steak sandwich was delicious. The restaurant is modern, classy & bright, with tables spread out & served with a jug of water as you are seated. Elliots Restaurant has not once let us down, the food is always to a high standard, staff are great and its centrally located to Edinburgh Waverley making it the right choice for an evening meal. Highly Recommend!
Only observation would be that the bruchetta could have been warm bread and topping as it was to oily and cold. Main courses were delicious.
Main courses only basic pub grub standard but puddings very good
We were the only couple there which, to begin with, was lovely. however, there was no music or background noise so we felt as though we couldn’t have a nice conversation without it being listened to.
Great food and nice staff. Restaurant pretty empty but with some healthier choices than the local pubs.
Food itself was good but service almost non-existent. 10 minutes to get seated. Long waits between orders. Mistakes with food and bill. No attempts to make things right.
Advised Chicken and Chorizo was good choice and not disappointed. Second time visiting in two days and food was excellent
Great food, very tasty, staff really attentive. Lovely atmosphere
Good service. Didnt stay at the hotel. And was given the choice of bar or restaurant as not so busy.
Given the choice between seating.
Waiters were fab, polite and quick.
Food was good for value, very tasty maybe needed some vegetables.
Overall would definitely recommend.
It was fairly above average hotel fare. That said, it was enjoyable.
We were not told it was card payment only and we only had cash and we felt really embarrassed as we felt we were in wrong for wanting to pay in cash and the steak was cooked medium/rare instead of well done
A good restaurant hampered only be the reduced menu and no alcoholic drinks, due to Covid. Good social distancing with the tables and staff in masks so I felt very safe.
I ordered the Whiskey Chicken and it was delicious. The mushrooms were amazing. I had a side of potatoes as well. Turkish delight for dessert was unusual but tasty. Good service.
The service was fine no waiting, staff friendly, food lovely and good value with unexpected extras of tea/coffee and mince pies only downside was restaurant area was not busy
Handy if staying in the hotel, although service not the quickest
Without a doubt the worst service ever experienced at a restaurant. From forgetting to take initial drink orders, the afternoon steadily went from bad to worse to the point we could only laugh. Waiting staff seemed to lack the most basic training; taking orders wrong, being rude to one of the group and handing over unopened drinks bottles when they finally arrived. Starters served over a 30 minute period between the group then mains served before plates were cleared. Mains served scattered over an hour period with 3 dishes having to be returned to the kitchen to be redone. One to be avoided.
Booked on line for 4 open table. When son and his fiancé arrived before us they were rudely turned away. Never had a chance to eat there. Went to a restaurant a few doors down they were polite and their food was delicious,
Some of the food was good, but some was disappointing, some served too cold and a confusing menu covering options for meals and snacks all day, rather than evening meal. Did not meet the expectations expected in a four star rated hotel. The waiting staff were very good.
Food and service was lovely. Wedding party going back and forward through restaurant area was a bit annoying. A separate route to the loos or loos nearer function area would resolve this as well as separate smoking access.
Family get together.
There were very few customers in the restaurant however the time for our food to be delivered to the table was astounding. Luckily we were the only table on arrival as the time to wait would have left us giving the lunch a miss.
Would not return to this restaurant due to poor service. Waited almost an hour for our food to be served even though the restaurant was not busy. Wait for our desert course was also far too long.
Table booking was for 5 but no such table ready on arrival - staff required to push two tables together to accommodate. Poor poor poor.
Good freshly cooked food. Portion sizes about right. Quite a few healthy options. Service excellent.
Food was cold not great taste and quality of food poor
Restaurant was very busy when I arrived and had to wait ten minutes before being served. We had three courses and a bottle of house wine for £40. They had a good choice of all three courses. I had salmon croquettes which were lovely followed by crayfish linguine and the portion was huge. I couldn’t finish it so declined dessert.
Pink Door is my favourite Italian restaurant in Seattle , my favorite meal is the fresh Pasta Bolognese
Good service, good ambiance.Dishes are just so-so.
We had the Dine with wine. Very good value for money The food was really excellent and the house was was lovely. Tasty and very well presented. Decent choice of dishes as well. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Polite but not overbearing.
Had a lovely dinner for our Anniversary here. Decided to try the restaurant when the price fixe wine and dinner for 2 menu popped up in my search for a restaurant in Edinburgh. The house red did not disappoint and our dinner was quite nice. I had a salmon and polenta dish that was listed as “Cajun”. It was very nice — but not sure where the “Cajun” was (we are from Florida). While this might not seem important: we had been cold all day and the restaurant was warm and cozy. That made my husband happy. Overall, a lovely evening!
