Ate here on a visit to Edinburgh with my wife, having been before with friends and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I had booked through 5pm.co.uk but on arriving at the restaurant, there was no table booked, although a few tables were free. We were asked for our drink order but wanted a little more time to look at the extensive cocktail menu...then we waited...and waited. Finally someone came back to take our drink order and we ordered food from the special 5pm menu. If we hadn't ordered a bottle of wine, I think that would have been the only drink we got during our visit! The food was nice and came to our table quickly, but it wasn't that busy. At no point did anyone come and ask if our food was ok. The waitresses seemed too busy talking to bother. At the end of our main course the plates were taken away and that was it...no offer of another drink or to see the dessert menu. We waited again to catch someones eye to ask for our bill which was just plonked on the table. Needless to say, as the service was almost non existent, we left no tip. Food was good, service awful, toilets even worse!!
