The living room is a chain, if I'm not terribly misteken and therefor their service is very professional. However, they're missing the x-factor in order to make it better than average. It's a bit inpersonal and very American, in my opinion. The food is good,...More

A nice intimate eating experience. The room is quite open, but the seats we were in gave a good atmosphere. The drinks choice is amazing. From wines to cocktails a great menu. Friendly service.

A friend and I enjoyed an early dinner at The Living Room this week, and it was most enjoyable. I'd booked, but probably didn't have to as the place was not very full, but it did mean we were able to sit in one of...More

We had our anniversary dinner here and it definitely didnt disappoint. We were seated in one of the lovely semi-circular booths along the edge of the restaurant which felt somewhat private. The food was delicious, and we thoroughly enjoyed every bit. Prices are slightly above...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

No expense has been spared on Edinburgh���s Living Room restaurant, one of a clutch of popular style bars lining George Street. The d��cor has been described as "Manhattan loft with a colonial twist���, a pretty fair description of the chic, upbeat, welcoming atmosphere at The Living Room. There���s a lot of stylish wood, substantial brown leather armchairs, potted plants and sophisticated lighting. A slick entrance bar, brought alive most evenings by one of a superb roster of resident jazz pianist performing on a white baby grand, leads to a cavernous dining space where the balance between comfort and style is reflected in The Living Room's modern European menu. It ranges from snacks, salads and roasts (Sundays only) to comfort food classics and more ambitious pasta, grill and seafood dishes. Edinburgh diners love the international wine list and the sexy cocktails and absolutely everyone praises the service to the skies.
