Food was good. Foil found in one of the dishes... apology was accepted, but no discount applied - not the usual standard of service I'm used to in a more up market restaurant. Service was slow at times, but not awful. Waited for almost half an hour on the bill. I don't like to draw attention to these things with waiting staff, but I'd had enough of the waiting. So I had to be fairly abrupt. Wasn't asked if we required more drinks after pudding and a quick toilet break. I wouldn't go back based on the service, but the food was good.

Excellent food and service. Ambience was excellent. If ordering water ensure you order tap otherwise £3.50 a bottle.

Delicious dinner on a Friday nite, last in Edinburgh. Had cider and a chicken, leek, mushroom, chestnut pie, presented with open moth ceramic black bird in center!
Very nice atmosphere, service, and experience!
Unfortunately pie left no room for dessert!

Overall THE lunch was good. Waitresses very kind. THE soup was luke warm so needed to be send back. The end of the restaurant was quite drafty because of air conditioning. Waitress found us a better table. Why are the loos so low??

Had a really lovely dinner at the restaurant. The atmosphere was great, not too noisy but still buzzing. Had a main and dessert, both very tasty but wouldn't have minded a bit more mash and a few green bits like beans, broccoli, tomatoes or something...
I would definitely consider going back next time I am in Edinburgh. As a tour leader, I would say this would also be a good option for groups.

Four of us had lunch for a special occasion. The food was very good, particularly the smoked haggis starter and the sea bream. The only downside was the service - when we were seated and when we asked to have sweets, we were only handed the a la carte menu and I had to ask for the lunch menu on both occasions.

Very nice meal at The Printing Press. It's quite casual so don't expect Michelin stars, but the food is very tasty. I had the gnocchi and my friend risotto (both vegetarian options). Both were good but I felt a bit hard done by with my gnocchi as it was a relatively small portion. Good to see some more inventive vegetarian options. Service was very good. The restaurant is part of a hotel and there is a bar at the front and a function room downstairs (wedding on when I was there) so you do feel a bit as if you're in the middle of a bigger occasion. If you want to avoid this ask for a table at the back away from the bar.
