    I got the sour dough bread which was excellent. My friend got a pizza with the spanish sausage. I tried a little of his and it was lovely.

    It was a first time experience for us at Soderberg Pavillon. We loved their bakery and wanted to try Sunday Live Jazz evening, while visiting Edinburgh. It was our last night there and needless to say, best choice we could have made. It’s a cozy, space with warm, welcoming atmosphere, lovely staff and the most amazing pizza! Live music was wonderful and service with food made it an unforgettable evening. Thank you Soderberg!

    Food was okay - although the menu said the open sandwich I ordered was hot, but it came cold. Food is, in my opinion, over-priced. We ordered hot drinks after our meal, which we had to remind staff to bring.

    I’ve booked table for two at lunch time. On arrival a staff member pointed at the table (I’ve booked sofa seat but got a normal table) and started dealing with another customer. We had to wait for the menu. No brunch menu only all day and no drinks order offered. Someone eventually came and took a drink order. We had to wait a while for the food order but it was nothing compare to the time we had to wait for our food! It took exactly 1h from seating down and getting our food. I only had an hour break from work so I was late! Ate quickly and run back to work. Food was really not good. Dead looking meatballs (about 10 very small), one small potato cut in pieces and some rocket leaves. It really was not good. Prices very average for the town. The restaurant is nice inside but very loud. Definitely not a type of place that aim for the customers to return.

    I come very often to this place and I think the food quality is good in general and its a cosy place. But some potential improvements: -Service. The staff is sometimes not very attentive and once you are seated, sometimes they take incredibly long to take your order. There are some exceptions, but in general I feel that they are not as friendly and as thoughtful as you would expect. -The music volume. It is certainly too loud, especially during lunch time. I tend to avoid going there at lunch time- it is not very pleasant to be eating or relaxing with a coffee listening to loud pop music. I find it to be totally off. Please, turn it down. Sunday´s jazz is great though! -I feel like the sourdough is amazing and some tasty pizza options, but...the olives are not very good. Please specify they are black olives in the menu, because mediterranean people would expect green olives. And also, if its a "tapa" of olives, there is no need to serve so many! The bowl is too huge for an apetizer.

    The food was superb - the only slight issue was our table not being cleared for quite a while after we'd finnished eating and it also took a while to get the bill.

    Our lunch was slightly marred by the fact that they only brought one of pizzas we had ordered, and we then had a very lengthy wait for the second to come. That meant my friend and I were eating at different times. But the pizzas were really nice and our seating was comfortable.

    Cute cafe, super bright and cosy, with good coffee, great pizzas and yummy waffles. The staff were friendly, specially a young male servant who was very attentive and polite. Only complaint would be the waffles are super flat, like a crepe almost, therefore a portion should include 2 instead of 1.

    First time I’ve been in a while and was surprised at really poor service. Think most of the male waiting staff were stoned?! No greeting at the door. Told off handedly we could sit anywhere. Drinks didn’t arrive, had to ask repeatedly. No menus, has to ask. Whole place felt tired and a bit grubby. Not the slick, friendly, Buzzy place I remember. Pizzas were fine - not amazing! Wouldn’t take much for the management to fix.

    Possibly the worst service ever. We had to wait ages for anything and had to ask to order drinks and food several times. Everything was so slow and staff didn’t seem to care that we were sitting there. The food was average, was barely warm and was not worth what we paid. Won’t be returning.

    I have gone to Soderberg (from when it was Peter's Yard) many times in Meadow Walk and Broughton Street and have always found the food and service of high quality, which is why we decided to try Soderberg Pavilion. It appears to place itself as more "upmarket" than the excellent cafes, but I'm sorry to say the food did not live up to this. The Svamp hot open sandwich appeared to have been left on the pass after making, as by the time it arrived the melted cheese was tepid and solidified, the toast burnt and hard to cut. The mushrooms were thinly sliced and grilled to unpleasant dryness without any oil or dressing. The whole assembly was very frugal, dry and disappointing. This is a simple open sandwich and is not difficult to prepare so that it is hot, moist and very tasty. The salmon open sandwich was just ok, but without the benefit of a garnish or anything to lift it from the very basic. We ordered buns to follow, which were delicious as usual, but more expensive than they would be in the cafes. The wine, tea & coffee were good, as in the cafes. The waiting staff were pleasant and friendly, but ours did seem inexperienced & sitting outside, it was not easy to attract their attention. I decided at the time that I did not want to complain & interrupt our conversation at the table, but as a review has been requested, I have taken up this opportunity. This may not put me off visiting the cafes in future, but on this showing I would not return to the Pavilion.

    We were disappointed to be told when a waiter eventually came to take order, there wd be at least 30minute wait. We were short of time and had to choose something in baking line rather than a main course. Then tables near us got food in less than 30 minutes Disappointing.

    The coffee was good, the view out the window excellent. The interior was a bit dingy but not too bad. The omlette with ham was bearly edible. Over-cooked, dry, plenty of ham on the side. The spinach and cheddar omlette was a bit better. The service by the gentleman was very good.

    Service was very slow. Had to ask for things like sugar or the bill several times. Staff were NOT engaged at all. Food was wonderful. Several items out of stock (mostly fruit juices etc) and it would have been nice to know when we got the menus rather than when ordering. Great space - but perhaps staff need more training to cover the usually shaped site esp when it’s sunny and outside is also occupied.

    Lively, noisy but good place for lunch. Food is tasty and healthy and well-presented. Sometimes feels difficult to get help from staff and waits can be long, but will be fulfilled. Often seems to be short on waiting staff - who are lovely though. Still would recommend.

    Service was appalling. Disinterested staff, as though nobody was in charge, took ages to take the order even though not busy. Forgot to bring dessert completely. The restaurant was in disarray, untidy, scruffy member of staff slouching at a bar stool having her lunch. My husband ordered margarita pizza which hardly even had any cheese. I had omelette with unbuttoned bread and a tiny amount of ham. Not offered any salt and pepper. Utterly appalling. I expected prices to have risen due to the current economic climate but I would never return and pay that amount for very poor meals.

    A lovely place to meet friends. Indoor and outdoor seating as well as sofas give plenty of variety of seating. Friendly attentive staff and delicious food complete the experience. I like the informal atmosphere. My only suggestion is that soup would be such a welcome addition to the menu particularly in winter or when it is cold.

    Nice food, however let down on this occasion by the surly female waiter, for whom everything seemed like something to ignore, or alternatively too much trouble-however, other staff were very pleasant.
