Neighbourhood: New Town
Description: With the scenery of Edinburgh Castle and the Firth of Forth, the Forth Floor Restaurant at Harvey Nichols certainly has a sense of drama about it. The stylish elements of the decor, such as the circular lights which begin to glow red once the sky becomes darker, and the Scottish flavours found through the restaurant menu all inspire an adventurous dining experience with the finest quality food. Meanwhile, the brasserie makes for an enjoyable alternative, presenting a modern take on conventional European cuisine, and the extensive wine list includes over 350 different varieties of wines and champagnes. During the summer months, it is also possible to enjoy meals outside on the large terrace, overlooking all of Edinburgh.

“One of the Best in Town”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Whether you eat in the Brasserie or in the main restaurant you will find that you will enjoy great food, experience smashing views and experience brilliant service.

We dine in both restaurants pretty regularly and without fail are always thanked for coming back and made to feel important by some really nice people.

The food is always consistently good and is right up there with the best Edinburgh has to offer.

If you haven't tried it yet get there soon. You won't be disappointed.

“fabulous meal with a great view”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We booked a special 3 course dinner with a cocktail which was a bargain at £30. Wasn't expecting too much but it turned out to be a real experience with excellent food served with panache. The quality and choice of food was top quality and we had plenty of time to relax and sip our proscecco as we enjoyed our meal. Thanks to all the staff.

“Possibly overrated”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Very chic and modern decor with a lovely view of the city! I have always been to the bar so I can not comment on the food. Drinks are similarly priced to that of all bars on George street so maybe best suited when you are enjoying a day out/one off treat. I find the bar area a little small, however, I like it snug and the sofas make you feel comfortable. Service is somewhat disappointing, rather slow and staff can be quite miserable and snooty ( not every time I have visited). Last week when I visited I wasn't given a napkin or straw which is a basic, especially in a department store which portrays a professional image. I would recommend and I will be visiting again, but I feel there are better bars in Edinburgh.

“Great Everything !”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This was our second visit to "Forth Floor". This time we chose the special deal of £30 for three courses with a cocktail on arrival which is fantastic value for money. There are many things that make dining here special including the views, the friendly and efficient service and the standard and quality of the food which included not only the menu items but also special little treats between courses - all of which were delicious.

I'd very much recommend a visit and we will definitely be back !

“Champagne cocktails!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This place is so good that when we went there were people sitting on the floor enjoying their cocktails. You can get a small snack and wet your whistle while shopping. The service was very good given how busy it was and we were very impressed with the quality and variety of champagne cocktails.
