This restaurant has been set up in one of the old railway arches in East Market Street and has been superbly designed to make maximum use of the tunnel shape. Staff were warm and welcoming on arrival, seating was comfortable and the menu covers a wide range of tastes. The quality of the food was top class and four very happy people enjoyed the culinary experience.

First time to Chop House in Edinburgh for a wee lunch break and enjoying it! The steak sordough cooked into perfection and the taste of bone marrow gravy was such complimentary. The portion was just enough, although I hope it’s a little bit bigger. Pairing it with a bottle of red wine for three. Good value for money!

You must must must order the bread with bone marrow butter. 🤤 life hack: spread the bone marrow butter on your steak. Steak was cooked to perfection, service was great, signature cocktails were delicious.

Tales of the Cocktails are on tour in Edinburgh this week from New Orleans. It's a great excuse (not that we need one) to go out and try some fabulous cocktails made by some pretty hot bartenders in some of our best bars in the city.
Last night I headed over to Chop House in Market Street to try some. They had teamed up with Darnley's Gin and Porter & Rye to bring some very inventive cocktails to the table like Darnleys Gin with Elderflower and pine needles; Darnleys Spiced Gin with burnt pepper, orange and bitters; and Darnleys Gunpowder Gin with vermouth and love!
Alongside this we were treated to some great canapés from the Chop House including charcoal flamed steak, scallops in chimmichurri sauce with chilli flakes and beef with charcoal mayo. Gorgeous! We were well and truly looked after. The staff are fabulous - friendly, chatty, knowledgeable. Their bartender Matteo really knows his cocktails and made us up some amazing drinks using some unique ingredients and all made with love! I can't wait to go back and enjoy EVERYTHING on their menu.

These guys do steaks like a pro.
Incredible dining for a special occasion. Decadence is the order of the day but in staple, urban surroundings. It's the food and wine that are the stars of this show.
Staff are friendly, fabulous, passionate and knowledgable foodies.
Oysters on ice with Tabasco - wow. Love these little guys.
Salt & pepper squid - tasty. Very tasty. Cooked to perfection and not a blemish beyond.
Chateaubriand - Yummmmmm! Beautifully pink in the middle. Charred around the outsides. Coupled with a fresh tomato salad and beautifully chubby chips.
Brownie with salted caramel icecream - fabulous! I could barely manage the mellow blue cheese that followed.
This dinner rocked.
Nice work Chophouse.

A great find near the Edinburgh Old Town. Steak is fantastic, side are delicious and the cocktail are so tasty. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Modern decor set within an old arch. As well as lunch and dinner they do weekend brunch and a Sunday roast!

OK so give me a break on the atmosphere. We were the first table in on a Sunday afternoon. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and I am betting it is a fun bustling place on a Friday evening.
The food is stunning, the chicken was succulent with a crispy skin! The margarita was spicy and the fries are a revelation. The starters were top notch too. Go search this place out and don't miss out!
My family and I ate here after arriving in Edinburgh.
It was quite nice, I had the sunday roast. It was a 35-day dry aged steak and other stuff on the side for 21£. The steak was pretty good for only 21 pounds, although I would have loved to have more potatoes and less of the green stuff.
My family also thought the food was good.
The homemade Lemonade was great as well.
Tried rump steak instead of my usual fillet or ribeye; unfortunately, it was too chewy. The mushroom side was so delicious, but the slaw was bland and dry, needing more sauce or mayo. On a positive note, Chop House craft lager impressed me, despite not being a beer person. Friendly and helpful staff. I'd return to explore their other dishes.
On 3rd August 2023, I visited there to have lunch. I ordered Fillet Steak and Mussels. All were very good! Staffs were very nice. Very comfortable shop! Looking forward to visiting again soon. Thank you!

The arch literally melts away with a unique hanging couch design i haven't seen anywhere in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Scotland, the tables are notably well placed although it may seem a little far to reach for some it lends to good posture and comfort.
And before I talk about the food, let's address the amazing service, i often struggle with the Scottish service sector, few can deny that some scots just shouldn't. But this is something else, not overly attentive, but accommodating and delightful, will chat and follow up but don't push it or disturb. Knowledgeable and down to earth, extremely polite and just good staff.
And one more thing...
There's a icebox filled with crustations at the bar. Well played.
I ordered a rib eye (medium well, i don't like blood) and the famous Mac and cheese, and everyone else got the sirloin. (Imaginative aren't they)
To start i got tempura prawns and mosteralla.
The cheese was well olive oiled, peppered and presented. It was also really good fresh mozzarella which is the main thing here, the peppers were also really good and crunchy.
The prawns came with puree tomatoes that weren't great, over seasoned and a bit dried. However the prawns themselves were a multifaceted experience of batter and "squish" that you only get in premium seafood, 5 stars for a starter, no head but that's a UK thing.
The ribeye was amazing, without sauce perfect, and with peppercorn, the best steak in the east coast besides Hawksmoor, for half the price.
The Mac and cheese was HOT but creamy
And all those little burnt bits were delicious.
The sirloin was delicious and well charred and salted.
Overall amazing atmosphere, menu and staff.
Also the business cards are chamfered, 5 stars for design. (If you can't tell i came with Napier students)
My family’s 1st time in Edinburgh and I decided to try the Scottish beef. We had a 1kg tomahawk, 2 fillet, oysters, some sides like in the picture for 3 aldults and 2 ten-year-old kids.
- Staff was really nice and she explained well about the Scottish dried beef used as we were there for the 1st time.
- About the steak: i chose medium well as we had kids and we waited for 45’ which the staff already told us about that. She also suggested us the 1kg tomahawk was enough for just 2-3 people but I didn’t believe at first as we had kids and asian stomach 🤣 I soon regretted that I should double the meat bcoz it was too good, soft and juicy, we could eat much more but couldn’t wait for more 45’.
- Sides: Portion is big compared to the price. I love rocket salad and potato was yummy.
Overall, it was a great food experience. The stuff was very friendly. And the food very good, the steak we had was medium rare and was perfectly cooked. I give 4 star as an overall because i find it a bit expensive. 150 pounds for 2 people.
We had a T bone stake with half lobster, 2 sides, and a bottle of wine.
Superb food and served by friendly and helpful staff. The best steak I've had in any restaurant.
Booked online, arrived on time and seated immediately. Ordered starter, steak and 2 sides each and left feeling we'd had a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
We came to celebrate our anniversary with my partner and we were not disappointed. The staff gave us a free glass of prosecco while we waited for our table to be ready.
The food was really good and the staff were very polite. Recommend the sirloin with macncheese as well as the potatoes. Desert was decent. Service charge is not included
I enjoyed my meal at Chop House Market Street. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and attentive. I quite enjoyed the food - I had small serve of mussels for the entree and steak with lobster for the main. As a whole the food was tasty and flavoursome, steak was cooked well however it was quite a thick steak which isn't my first preference but was still nice. I also enjoyed the blackberry cocktail that I had and Malbec wine. The pricing is more on the expensive side however I did choose pricier items on the menu to try.
