Was disappointed with the atmosphere. I was expecting something exceptional. I also asked when Jamie visits, and the reply was he had never been there. Food was ok, but very commercialised. Drinks were expensive, but the restaurant its self was lovely décor.

Jamie is a great chef but this place does not have the correct recepies or they do things in a hurry. We are vegetarians and some choice but it seems like that evening we were disappointed. we had great expectations but were not happy.More

Would not consider 5 good ☺️ but love Jamie's. did you say this was not what you expected? In my experience they would have given you more if you say.

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN EDINBURGH A partnership between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie's Italianhas won thousands of fans for its delicious and affordable food since launching their first restaurant in Oxford in May 2008. The Jamie's Italian menu is based on dishes you'd find people eating all over Italy, made with care but delivered without fuss. The family-friendly restaurants are all about serving up rustic, Italian food made using the best possible ingredients, plus fresh pasta that's made on-site every day, and an award-winning children's menu, too. The spectacular Edinburgh restaurant is housed in the former supper halls of the Assembly Rooms on George Street, in Edinburgh's city centre. Perhaps their most elegant restaurant - grand ceilings, impressive cornicing and scarlet walls, teamed with red velvet chairs and chandeliers, make Jamie's Italian in Edinburgh an amazing spot for a special night out. The central location means it's easy to drop in at any time of the day or evening too.
