We needed quite a bit of explaining from the wait staff as to what some of the menu items were because we didn't recognize several of the words. The portions were smaller than anticipated, specifically for the beef cheeks. Service was quite good although we were surprised when we finished our dessert and the waitress came by to take our plates, and we said we were done for the night, and she didn't bring our check until we called her over and asked for it. She might've left us sitting there all night. Ambiance was very nice and we very much enjoyed our wine. Booking was a breeze. We were seated just one minute after we entered, so our table was essentially ready right away. More

We had a lovely meal beautifully cooked by Roger. It's nice to see a craftsman at work. Bea runs front of house as it should be run. Friendly and efficient. If you want fresh food cooked and presented properly then this is the place to come to. First visit to Seasons although we had sampled Roger and Bea's cooking elsewhere so were neither surprised nor disappointed. We live about an hour and a half away but will definitely be back soon.

Offered to re-cook steak but we declined as we couldn't finish anyway. I had summer greens as my side which was lovely. More

We were a group of 9 friends, including 2 children, visiting Edinburgh for the weekend. The restaurant is well positioned near the Castle and opposite the International Conference Centre. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was great, and not noisy. Food was tasty, served in good sized portions and reasonably priced. Perfect for our evening meal. They also now have a wine list.

The food was excellent. Presentation was very good and the small touches made it special. A new restaurant with a lovely view of the Queensferry Crossing. What made it even more special was the staff. They were so friendly, but not overly so. They made you feel welcome and the table service was excellent. It was not particularly busy when we were there and I hope it remains well staffed. Will definitely return - another couple of different gins would be a bonus and some cocktails. A great addition to North Queensferry- with easy access to public transport whether going north or south. More

Here at Toby Carvery Edinburgh West, we believe there's only one way to do our beloved British roast – and that's properly. Every spud is checked by hand and ruffled for extra crunch. All of our meat is slow-cooked and basted to succulent perfection. And our Yorkshires are freshly made in our kitchens and served crisp, fluffy and piping-hot to your plate. That's what makes us the home of the roast.More

We started our journey back in the Kitchen of our sharing flat. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing. Our first pot of sushi rice was horrible. My lips puckered, everything was sour and sticky and I wanted to give up (and throw up) right then and there. But, I decided to give it a few more tries. And I found a love and passion I never knew before. My friends and family absolutely loved the flavors I came up with and soon, an idea sprouted in my head: To open my own restaurant. You see, not only do I love sushi, but I also adore food. Finding fresh and local produce and turning into a culinary masterpiece means just as much to me as creating a fantastic sushi. That’s how this wonderful idea came to be. And I couldn’t be happier making good sushi and offering fantastic food. More
