    Food was delicious. Perfectly cooked sole. Sticky toffee pudding was a bit dry and needed more sauce. Everything else was superb!

    I was a bit disappointed Yesterday evening... 45 minutes waiting to start eating, and the chicken was very too dry... Did the Kitchen run out of sauce that day? I wasn't the only person to be insatisfied, a couple at the table behind was also mad.

    Really nice food (haggis bon bons out of this world) in a beautiful setting served by really pleasant, friendly and professional staff. This was a really good dining experience and is the perfect place to eat if you are going to a show in Eden Court. A+++++

    Food was poorly presented, salad, which consisted of 5 leaves of Italian out of a packet, no vegetables served with meal, minimum effort, took 45 minutes to serve. We two people were the only ones there. Ordered red wine juis, told 5 minutes before they served that it wasn't reduced down. The other meal was cold, informed server not happy they ignored and walked away

    Overall a nice meal, served by very attentive waiting staff. The menu was nothing special but it was adequate and seemed to cover all dietary requirements. Cost of meal seemed expensive but was similar to most restaurants in the area.

    Tables well spaced so ambience good. Menu interesting although duck was off. Their classic cottage pie was scrumptious. The chocolate fondant arrived without fondant but a jug soon put that right. Service excellent.

    Food was a little bland. Nothing special. Gnocchi was extra bland. Cod was alright. Bar tender couldn’t make a martini, could only order drinks off of menu. The view and setting is great and everyone was super nice. But because of the food, probably wouldn’t return. It’s fairly priced though.

    Nice location. Went at 8.30 pm on a busy Friday. Service good but kitchen was struggling a bit, running out of ingredients. Steak was overdone but a new one was prepared without fuss. Basic dishes were fine.

    El servicio fue muy deficiente. El agua y el vino que pedimos llego despues de la entrada y para el plato principal pusieron mas de 1 hora y cuando lo trajeron estaba frio. Si la comida era buena, dificil de apreciarlo ya que tuvieron que recalentar 2 veces el plato. Decepcionante

    I ordered hake, the waitress came back and informed me they were out of stock and offered me cod. That was OK, the food could of done being a bit hotter. But all in all the food was good. The noise coming from the kitchen spoilt it a bit, cutlery being thrown in drawers etc, the should have closed the doors. Apart from that it was a pleasant lunch.

    Nice location near the river Ness which has a conservatory side with views and lots of natural light. The service was excellent as our waiter was prompt and dedicated. The food menu has some nice options and we enjoyed the meal. Dessert was fine as well although we expect that some may find the portion small but it wasn't an issue to us as it was tasty.

    Queried the bill and told it was correct. Still believe it was £4 more than it should have been. 10% service charge is added to your bill automatically so do not leave a tip. This is a bit cheeky and is not made exactly clear on the menu, in my view. Reference to service charge appears to be suggested at 10%. I do not like restaurants that presume the service and would not hurry back to such establishments. ( I should add that my bill was still incorrect even allowing for the service charge.

    Food over cooked, not pleasant service . Bottle of white wine was served warm .No cutlery provided with food !; had to wait and asked for? I sent a request when I made the table booking if it could be possible to have a small cake provided and a little fuss made as it was my friend's birthday and retirement birthday meal . When I asked if they knew anything about the request I was told by a member of staff very abruptly told ask that other waiter as he knew nothing about it !! Apparently I was told they had a message about it been a birthday meal but no fuss had been made so I asked if they could provide something for her to make it memorable .My friend was presented with a plate put in front of her by the waiter and not a word was said to her just plonked in front of her . We were extremely disappointed 😞.

    The food was mediocre, stale hamburger bun, one choice of cheese. They seemed understaff as wait was longer than normal. The windows that look out on the river were so streaked you couldn't see out of them. Water glasses stained. Just an overall lack of attention to detail.

    The food was decidedly average, plates plonked on the table not placed, my steak, salad and empty container of chips! I asked a member of staff if she thought something was missing from my plate, she looked and said, yes, chips! To be fair she did apologise then took my plate away to put the chips into the container. I would not recommend for a meal!

    This restaurant had a wedding there the day we attended and as a result service was so slow and some of the food lukewarm. This slow service has also happened on previous occasions so we will not be returning.

    Having booked an indoor table we ended up eating outside at the Beer Garden and the team at Waterside was very accommodating. A great location by the river, good food and a beautiful day, we will recommend the Waterside for anyone looking for a nice place in Inverness.
