A person can only be patronisingly called "madam" so many times, I am not sensitive to such things but this particular waiter was truly dreadful. We were sitting by the window which although a lovely position was very cold, if they are to have tables so near the window then under window heating is necessary. Huge time delay between starter and main course (only 14 covers, most of whom were eating their main course when we sat down, 4 still to be seated) so much so that we were offered complimentary coffee and petit fours. The braised beef was not tender, in fact a chore to eat. When this was mentioned the aforementioned waiter didn't quite know how to respond and was so flustered failed to offer us dessert from the extremely limited dessert menu. All in all a very disappointing experience. They need to improve the waiting staff and find a new chef.

The great location and fabulous rooms make the Edinburgh Residence. We ate in the Number Seven restaurant this evening and had a pretty poor dining experience. To begin with the white wine was served warm - event though the waiter said it came from "the back of the fridge." The replacement wine was perfectly chilled and very nice. The starters were nice and came in good time. It was the main courses that were the problem. It was almost 40 minutes before they arrived and the quality of food was not great. Salty and not very attractive appearance. Altogether a disappointing experience in a lovely hotel. A shame for the the waiting staff who were very plesent.

The restuarant is in a very beautiful building and upon coming in my friend and I sat waiting quite abit until a waiter can and asked us if we would like to see the menu, I had wanted to restort sarcastly "no, we are just here for the scenary" but kept my mouth shut. There was only the two of us, so there should have been no need for the length of time it took for our order to be taken and the need to request for the breadbasket. The food when it arrived, was delicious, however waiting for the mains was abit annoying, as it took quite long also. We had to wait quite a while for dessert also and ask for the bill twice. Considering there were only two tables occuppied and two waiting staff there really was no need for the length of time everything too. Service was very long and not to the high quality that would be expected of such an establishment. The food was great though. Would recommend restuarant for that alone.

Number Seven is in the gorgeous Edinburgh Residence hotel. The dining room is a lovely room that is very intimate. The menu is small but everything on it was absolutely delicious. Their new chef has selected very well. And the staff were extremely polite and friendly. I would definiitely visit again!
