Went there using a Groupon and was given wonderful service. Even given the opportunity to up-sale me, she didn’t - I was questioning if I should get venison (normal Groupon menu item) or fillet (£10 surcharge), she recommended venison. The mussels, and venison were all wonderful. We got the creme brulee for dessert and were underwhelmed. Also, the chairs were very low - I felt like a child at the table. It was a very nice ambience. Very small place (maybe 10 tables) and the service was absolutely wonderful. I would recommend.
It started already at the entrance. The lady welcomed us in a very regal way, personally taking off our coats and tucking them away. She escorted us into the small, cosy dining area, lit with a lot of candles. Our reserved table was the only one in front of the fireplace. Piped-in music made one think of being on a romantic first date. We had a three-course Scottish menu. Each dish was delivered in style and personally by our hostess. The food was superbly awesome. Although in this case, the service was over and above the quality of the food. The personal service was the best ever in all our trips . We felt that it was genuine and that she herself enjoyed doing so. We will come back next time we visit Edinburgh!
The five course tasting menu was delicious.
The restaurant is small and beautiful.
The wines we had were lovely
We came to your lovely establishment last night for our 5 course tasting menu.
The food was beautiful. The Partridge dish and cullen skink in particular were to die for too.
We asked to have breaks inbetween each course, our experience lasted 2.5hrs. Beautifully paced for us to take our time, savour and enjoy each course. The lady on service paired us two lovely wines to enjoy with the dishes.
Between the female and young male waiter the service was discreet but attentive, professional, welcoming and friendly throughout.
Our compliments to your talents chefs too. All food was well presented, very tasty a good balancing of flavours and served hot too.
The dinning room is lovely with lofty high ceilings. A nice ambiance with twinkly light and table candles.
Well done, as a team you're certainly getting it right.
tucked away on a side road just off the bottom of princess street/beginning of leith walk.
I booked a table for 2 for Christmas Eve 3 months in advance, specifying gluten free options were required for 1. Great expectations, considering the good reviews! Upon arrival, there was nobody to meet/greet/seat us. Eventually seated against the bar counter just inside the entrance (?!) we ordered Prosecco. About ten minutes after ordering, we were told it was out of stock. The waitress tried very hard, but lacked menu knowledge and hospitality training. The initial promise of virtually any menu item being able to be prepared as a non-gluten version proved to be a real problem a options were limited to say the least. Presentation was generally ok but the dishes were really bland and uninteresting. We eventually decided on sharing a cheese platter for dessert. When we said there was no rush, we were told (by what may have been the proprietor) that the kitchen was quite busy with 'other things' anyway - How to make your guests feel special! When the cheese board was served, we had to hear that they 'tried 3 different shops and were unable to find any gluten free crackers' There was also no possibility of gluten free bread as an alternative either. We were eventually able to place an order for coffee (by this time it seems that they had lost interest in us) and, unfortunately, this was also not very good. Considering it was Christmas Eve, also no attempt at a festive addition - maybe friandise or a homemade truffle with the coffee? For the price, I've had so much better...
Christmas Eve dinner proved underwhelming despite what appeared to be promising. We had booked a table but were seated in the entrance, resulting in being brushed past all evening. The Prosecco was out of stock so we ended up with a rather uninteresting Sauvignon Blanc. The advertised GF Tarte Tatin turned out to not be gluten free - apparently a typing error and the rice balls were literally that - balls of cooked rice. The fish cakes were full of fish but not much flavour while the veg curry was quite tasty, although Las Iguanas does a better one by far. No GF crackers for the cheese board, and no GF bread either. As a GF diner, I try to manage my expectations, but my sense here was a poorly managed show with supply challenges. I also think that the chef was either very cautious with flavours or simply wasn't very skilled. The whole experience was disappointing and more expensive than it should have been for what we received. Skosh in York offers a vastly superior offering at the same rate and I did make the comparison. Skosh has nothing to fear, even from 220 miles away. Final point - our server was friendly if under-skilled. We were determined for it not to ruin our Christmas in Edinburgh and the high tea at the Waldorf-Astoria on Boxing Day went some way to make up for it but gauging from the range of reviews, No 11 is literally a case of potluck.
We arrived at the restaurant to be welcomed by Mike our host who made our afternoon a one to remember,he was an excellent member of staff who did his job very well,all of the food our party of four had was delicious and well presented,we will definatley return when visiting Edinburgh again.
Ate here last night, group of 5 friends, starters, mains and desserts were all fantastic. We had the trio of pork, rump of lamb, venison and rump steak, all cooked lovely. Lovely atmosphere and great service by magic Mike.
Will definitely be visiting again.
I had 2 courses from the Festive Scottish Menu. The turkey main was lovely and the cheese board had a good selection on it and I was full at the end. The only thing I would comment on was that we ordered 2 rounds of Gin and Tonics and whilst the 1st was mixed with one brand of tonic, the 2nd was mixed with another and we could certainly taste the difference. Its a very small niggle but it would have been nice to have had continuity. The dining room is lovely to sit in and the staff were very friendly. We look forward to visiting again.
We came here after receiving a groupon for a gift, was a 3 course meal for 2. I think the price worked out being what you pay for around 1. The dining room was small but busy, it reminded me of a much smaller bonham. It had a very well stocked bar.We ordered the vegan black pudding (delicious- and had I not known it was vegan I would never have guessed) and the pate to start- the pate was ok, unsure if homemade though. Then we both had some kind of fish and risotto, this was tasty and we order a couple of sides to go with it. The service around the desert slowed significantly and I think was to do it the restaurant being full at this point. We had sticky toffee pudding and cheese. We ate all of our food and we enjoyed it but I’m not sure if it was worth what would have been full price. I would return using a groupon.
We booked for the Groupon deal. Lovely intimate restaurant. We were made to feel very welcome. Food was truly amazing.. compliments to the chef! Will definitely eat there again when we next visit Edinburgh.
The food here is incredible. Some of the best I have ever eaten. The portions are perfect and the menu has a wonderful variety. Great selection of wine and not too expensive considering how great the food is.
We had our last dinner here, so decided to spend a little bit more.
We ordered bread for two, but there was so musch bread one serving would have been enough. As I was dining with a chilld, it would have been a nie gesture from the staff to point out, that it would be enough to order just one serving of the bread.
I had the tempura mushrooms, the were really good and not to oily, yet stil crispy. In addition to using regular mushroom, using shitake etc, would have akken it up a notch.
The venison was abselutely perfect, and the gravy was to die for.
The setting is in a room with all black walls and celing, which suited the room f´very well, and the noise level was low, considering the proximity to the other tables
11 Brunswick Street is one of the original Georgian buildings just on the outskirts of Old Edinburgh. We had room 5, which is very large and on the second floor. The breakfasts are excellent.
The front desk staff were very helpful making cab reservations and suggesting restaurants although there was a frequent encouragement to use the restaurant in the hotel.
We really enjoyed our meal tonight. The staff were friendly and the food was first class. The dinning room and lounge were perfectly decorated and the the whole place had a great relaxing atmosphere. We will be staying here next time.
A modern take on traditional foods in a small personal room. Everything we ordered was delightful - tasty and well presented. We stopped in for a quick late meal and enjoyed it so much that we came back again the next night.
Great location, rooms and excellent restaurant onsite. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. We had 3 rooms on the lower level and each one was very different.
Lovely food from admittedly restricted menu, but no complaints as quality was outstanding. Friendly, efficient service and attractive dining room. A firm favourite for me in Edinburgh.
Good selection of courses from the 3 course Scottish menu
Cullen Skink was fantastic as was the summer pudding
Attentive friendly service in a beautiful Georgian terraced property
