The staff here are so lovely. The human touch makes all the difference in restaurants. The food matched the warm welcome of the serving team, we had the steak and the venison which were both delicious and cooked to perfection. The only thing I would ask the team is please can you increase the pudding selection on the menu by one or two, as a huge pudding fan I would have liked a little more choice.
Value wise I expect alcohol in restaurants to have a decent mark up and be twice as much as you’d pay in the shops but the wine was about four times the normal shop retail price which we thought was excessive. The member of the team in charge of wines does know his stuff and makes some good recommendations though which is always nice to have. Overall a good experience and we would definitely eat here again.
Superb quality food. Had potato salad (don't be fooled by the simple terminology, it was a gourmet delight) then delicious ravioli and gorgeous chocolate crousillant. Great service, friendly, bit of banter and totally professional. Hungarian white wine, clean and classy. A definite gem of an experience.
If visiting three times in ten days makes me a regular then I must be. A great place to go for drinks and snacks, brunch or full Sunday lunch. Service is great, food (and wine) excellent and the ambiance pleasant and relaxed. I live part of may time in Stockbridge and will certainly visit Whiskers when I'm back in town.
Food was delicious and presented beautifully.
Our waiter was brilliant. He made us feel so welcome and we had a giggle at his jokes. Such a lovely evening! Thank you Whiskers 😊 💓
Food was very good with some interesting choices. We thought it was a little bit pricey.
Service was a little slow but this did not unduly concern us as the environment was comfortable
We were only slightly surprised at the end of the meal when we asked for the bill to be told they needed the table straight away. Obviously we were about to leave anyway and we hadn’t been told they wanted the table.
As I always say, if you need the table back, let me know and ensure you serve me in good time
Great Sunday lunch and drinks! Great service on top too.
First time here and we met for brunch. Great range on the menu, could have eaten all of it but I chose the french toast with crispy bacon. It was delicious, light and fluffy toast, tasty bacon with drizzled syrup. Just what the doctor ordered. Coffee was good and strong. Will be going for lunch soon !
Brilliant as always. Tasty, well-cooked food, friendly efficient service even when very busy. Good range of beverages. But shush, don't tell everyone or we'll never get a table!
A fun, relaxed evening. The servers were very helpful at advising on wine choice.
Really good food, nice chilled out place and very good service
Excellent, friendly service. Fabulous sparkling wine recommendation. Exceptional knowledge about the menu (e.g. vegetarian cheeses). Would definitely return.
Superb cooking with great attention to flavour and texture. Super atmosphere.
Service was on 100%, great wine selection and tasty board of cheese. I will be back definitely.
Wednesday steak night was such a good offer
The steak was delish and the wine was very very good standard given it’s included
Well distanced tables and face-masked staff gives a reassuring start. Good menu range for all courses, wide drinks choice, tasty, well-cooked food served efficiently, but without hurry. What's not to like?
We had an exceptional meal here; really high quality of cooking, beautiful Trout starter and Beef Tartare, and lovely Tomato Salad followed by a simply outstanding Cod with Pearl Barley Risotto, Fillet of Beef and Venison Loin.
Wine list had an interesting selection; good value from £25 upwards for a pretty decent bottle.
This is really good cooking, one of our best recent experiences in Edinburgh.
The room itself could do with a bit of modernisation but the service was very good indeed.
Pleasant welcome, perfect table, excellent service, food and wine. The perfect ambience for supper with friends!
Great food, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend the Sunday lunch.
Food was lovely. Service was not so great, we had empty drinks for ten minutes or so, which happened twice throughout the meal.
It was the first time there, the manager and waitress were really friendly, very good service. Wine a little pricey but the food was superb. The whole evening was fab, highly recommended it.
Fantastic service and great food. The cod was delicious. Will definitely be back
Just ok, service wasnt great had to try & catch their attention to get additional drinks etc, food was good but not exceptional, so overall just ok.
Food was delicious and staff are thoughtful and kind. Staff throughout were welcoming and considerate, they do a good job of feeling Covid safe. Any question answered and help with menu items.
As you might expect, we were particularly impressed with the wine, but the food is also very well cooked, balanced and seasonal! Delicious cured trout and venison if it is still around when you visit.
Party of 6 and we had 2 x steaks, 2 x venison, 1 x sole and 1 x cod. Everyone was delighted with their choices. The Rioja that came with the steaks was lovely and others enjoyed the Merlin beers including the non alcoholic option.
Desserts were also much enjoyed as was the cheese board.
Some people might find that they need to add a side order of potatoes, chips or salad but that depends on appetite.
We loved our cosy alcove and the waiter was excellent.
Overall, it was everything we could have wanted and represented excellent value.
What a great restaurant ! The staff were excellent, friendly and very attentive. Food was best we’ve had for a long time and very good value for money. Would highly recommend and we’ll definitely be back.
Very good wine and food. And a lovely, relaxed vibe. The quality was surprisingly excellent for the price. Highly recommend this lovely spot.
Very welcoming service from all staff. Pleasant dining experience with really good food and presentation. Would highly recommend.
This is our second visit to Whiskers.
We enjoyed the first visit that we couldn't wait to bring our friends for a meal when they were over visiting from Ireland.
The food was epic! So fresh and everything so delicious. The staff are very polite and accommodating and made sure we were happy at all times.
We will definitely be back as resident's of Stockbridge this will definitely be a regular visit for us. :)
Good location and friendly staff. Portion sizes were disappointing based on cost.
As always, Whiskers didn’t disappoint. Food was delicious at a very reasonable price. The service was excellent and we were very well looked after. Dog friendly also which is a great bonus.
Food was expensive and not amazing but not bad.
Service wasn't very warm. Felt uncomfortable.
Wouldn't go back
Fantastic food and drink selection and the staff are Uber friendly. Would 100% recommend.
Lovely food and ambiance. Great for a family meal or special occasion
The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The choice of food was great as was the wine.
Fantastic dining experience- girolles on toast was superb as was the venison.
Wednesday night, steak night was great value for money and excellent choice of wines. Would recommend highly 😌
We had a great night here. Attentive and fun staff, divine food and an excellent wine choice. Will definitely be returning.
This place is overpriced and the food is not that great.Not even a bread roll to accompany a tomato salad.
Not for me.
A very comfortable dining area, well spaced out with an easy level of back ground noise. Friendly, attentive staff serving well presented and very tasty food. We will definitely be returning.
Absolutely wonderful food and quite the best meal I have had for a very long time. Scallop ceviche was outstanding as was the rabbit loin and to finish the peach tarte tatin with banana ice cream was divine. Staff were a delight and overall a first class evening with seriously impressive food.
