OpenTable Diner (London)

We’d booked the bread street brasserie based on a recommendation from a friend who guaranteed the best haggis.

The haggis was nice and appears to be a standard on the starter menu... but in a different form... it was breadcrumbed and fried.
Completely different to what we were expecting but still a tasty starter.

The Shepherds Pie was exactly as designed... a perfect comfort food. Perfect after a days exploring with a pot of red cabbage for accompaniment.

Our issues came when every member of waiting staff (3) on duty asked if we were ok in the space of 2 minutes. We’d barely had a chance to take a bite in between.

It was a pleasant experience and we were afforded the time to relax after our meal and finish our drinks.

I’d recommended it you were staying nearby but nothing so mind blowing as to warrant a journey from afar to the restaurant.

We arrived At 5.00 for a pre theatre, the restaurant was empty so no atmosphere but the staff food and service were excellent, we had a lovely bottle of wine which was reasonably priced, overall a nice experience

Absolutely fantastic vegan food. What a treat. So rare to have three excellent choices on each course.

Excellent three course vegan meal in a pleasant restaurant with good service. The food was delicious and the portions generous. It was busy but didn't feel overcrowded. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back!

We visited for the vegan night. The food was tasty and the restaurant relaxed. The service was friendly but seemed a little disorganised. How ever this did not affect our experience.

Despite being told our booking had been cancelled at 3-00 in the afternoon due to booking through open table and not leaving a deposit we were rebooked and treated to free pressecco

Came here for a family new year celebration meal. I was apprehensive as some reviews left were a little on the negative side. I had no need to worry as the food was excellent and very good portion sizes so much so there was no room for dessert! Good service and a nice place to eat with modern surroundings attatched to the Hilton Double tree hotel

Lovely food and nice service. Off Lothian Road so not so busy that you can’t hold a conversation.

Although the food was excellent and the service was mostly very good, there were a couple of things that lost some stars in the rating. Just little things, really, but you would expect them to be in place given the surroundings and the price we paid for Christmas dinner.

Firstly, no one asked to take our coats and scarves when we were seated, so we had to hang them on our chairs - I know it's not a big thing but you'd expect a good restaurant to offer such a thing, especially as they were bulky coats to combat the Edinburgh winter weather.

Also, the service was variable, ranging from fantastic to just plain surly. One waitress of the latter description grabbed my partner's starter at one point and started taking it away. She told the waitress she hadn't finished, at which point the waitress handed it back and stood on her shoulder watching her eat (seriously, she did) and the split second she finished the last scrap, the waitress whisked it away. It was like something from a sitcom. The same waitress also forgot to bring us some water we'd requested and we had to rely on one of the better waiting staff after waiting twenty minutes. To cap it off, the same waitress brought our desserts without one word and half-dropped/slid them onto the table before marching off again.

As I said, little things, but we just felt the service could have been that little bit better given the price of the meal and the prestigious surroundings.

The 6 course Christmas menu was a great choice as the food was lovely, the service was exceptional too. £70 a head was a bit steep but there was always going to be a premium to pay on Christmas Day.

Went for Christmas dinner there. Got the Christmas menu, bit overpriced for what you get. Starter was very average the main was okay but nothing special. The pudding and service were both great so mixed bag.

Reluctant to recommend as two visits earlier in the week were very poor quality as regards the food. This particular visit although only two days later the food quality was significantly better.

Service good and food excellent - couple of nice vegetarian options on both general menu and festive menu. Relaxed environment away from the hectic Xmas crowds.
