Great food, great service and interesting vegetarian options. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the Macedonian red wine was a brilliant suggestion. A trip to Alva Street in the West End of Edinburgh is highly recommended!

My husband and I visited this place for the first time on a Friday evening since the refurbishment, having been there only once before the new owner took over. We were welcomed by very friendly and kind staff who paid us attention and care throughout our meal. The food was amazing and the combination of flavors and ingredients was impressive. Everything was seasonal and very well balanced. We regret we were so full we didn't manage to try any dessert but I'm sure we wouldn't be disappointed. Everything was perfect and I'd really recommend to everyone. We will certainly be back!

Nicholas was wonderfully welcoming, the food was to die for with a perfect wine pairing, and the ambiance was beautiful. I can't recommend Forage and Chatter enough. Everything was so lovely and made for a perfect last night in Edinburgh.

Server was very friendly and welcoming, food was quite expensive - but the set menu was very reasonable (though choice was limited). However, everything I ordered on that menu was delicious and just the right amount of filling. Will return! :)

What a find! A new little gem, interesting menu, cute size restaurant, peaceful calm atmosphere. Feels 'fancy' but not too formal. I'd go for a date, catch up with small group of friends, or business. There's two areas, one which a bit of romantic date feel to it.
The chef clearly talented, and just opened, I can't wait to go back. If throughly recommend the pork and squid starter, delicious!

We had a lovely evening. The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable with excellent decor and a delightful conservatory with real ambience. The service was efficient, friendly and informative. Our meals were absolutely superb both the beef feather blade and the venison were cooked to perfection and the taste was phenomenal. One of our party had the pearl barley vegetarian choice and thoroughly enjoyed the blend with celeriac. The lemon curd sweet with douglas fir was amazing light and exquisite, the apple gratin a lovely warming scrumptious pud for a winter's evening. It was a birthday celebration and the staff and other diners made it both a pleasurable and memorable experience. We will certainly be back as often as possible.

This is a very good new local restaurant, serving well-prepared and locally sourced in attractive surroundings. It's a bonus that staff are so engaged and friendly. Certainly a place we'd go back to.

Food was excellent. Service really attentive. Great wine. Second best we have had in Edinburgh. First being the Balmoral, which I'm sure they can live with.

Went here for the first night of our short break in Edinburgh and nowhere else we tried all week came close. Fantastic meal. Also the best service we've received in a very long time.

Overall very good indeed. My monkfish was a little on the salty side but everything else excellent. Good service, friendly staff and nice ambience. I would definitely go back next time I'm in Edinburgh. The prices are also pretty good for the standard of food.

We happen upon F&C from a recommendation from OT. Cameron runs the place and is as charming as the food is good. Nicholas, his brother served us with a warm and friendly flair.
We dined with them twice on our visit to a Edinburgh and each time we all ordered something different...hence we sampled everything on the menu. Each entree and starter was extremely fresh and nuanced by the gifted chef to make our dinner experience unforgettable Scottish experience. If your in Edinburgh RUN do not walk to Forage & Chatter! My only fear is it might loose some of its Scottish charm once the word gets out.

Our meal exceeded all expectations. There were three of us, and we were all blown away by the quality of the food, the exceptional service and the atmosphere. This place is situated in a basement in the west end of Edinburgh. Inside it is unpretentious, comfortable without being luxurious, and the menu is simple and straightforward. The food is superb. We will go back.

Our 2nd Visit
We first visited 2 months ago, this fabulous new eatery on the Edinburgh scene. We were not disappointed on our first visit and it was so refreshing to see that they were as good as they were 2 months ago after newly opening. The decoration is now complete and the service was again consistently very good. The food was as good all over again. In fact , everything was better and more polished than 2 months ago. We are so looking forward to our next visit. We highly recommend a visit to this gem.

This new restaurant scores points both on its warm ambiance and the quality of the food. After several disappointing food experiences in Edinburgh, we're hoping that this visit marks a turning point. We'll definitely be back.

New restaurant - only open for 6 weeks. Great addition to the Edinburgh dining scene. Central location at west end. Beautiful decor. Main plus point is the food & drink - local produce, innovative dishes that were all delicious. Staff very attentive but not overly so. Will definitely be returning!

Fantastic food and well trained staff. The forage and chatter has an acute attention to detail in their dishes and accompaniments. Beautiful interiors but the background music could've been turned up a notch. 👌🏼

Amazing find. Booked on open table and advised my daughters birthday. They wished her happy birthday upon arrival (no hint needed) and then created a special Happy Birthday plate with an array of chocolates. The food was delicious and inventive with good service. Highly recommend.

Had a dinner here together with three friends on Saturday night. We enjoyed good quality locally sourced food, traditional dishes with a modern twist, and good service from knowledgeable staff. The wine list is reasonably priced and has some innovative additions including the big Macedonian red that we quaffed down with our venison main course. Overall it was a dining experience that I would recommend and we will be back.

Forage and Chatter was a truly brilliant find during a weekend break in Edinburgh. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the food was outstanding. Every dish we ordered was beautifully presented and bursting with flavour. I'd highly recommend the BBQ pork shoulder, crispy squid and cauliflower starter as well as the Scottish duck main course. The service was incredibly friendly and attentive and overall this place offered great value for money. It's only been open for three weeks but it's definitely one to watch - a real hidden gem worth checking out.

Another great new restaurant in Edinburgh that reflects its name. Cooking is top quality as are the ingredients ~ think Norn & Seasons style and standard though with conventional menu. Very good knowledgeable service and nice set of dining rooms.

Wonderful experience . Excellent food. Personal recommendation from a stranger when staying in the city. Only been open for two weeks - get there quickly before tables are hard to come by!
