Description: 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.

Lovely food, wine and cocktails. We had a three course meal for 14.95 and the cocktails were half price so quality food at great price. Would definitely return.

I recently visited with some friends whilst on a weekend break to Edinburgh. The Food was average and the portions were fairly small. My steak was ok, cooked as requested, however i got only a small portion of chips and nothing else to acompany this. It was not sufficinet for someone with a reasonable appetite. The service was however very good, efficient and punctual. The cocktail list is great, and offers something different than your normal cocktails. Would visit again for the cocktails however I would opt for some where different if looking for a decent and filling meal.

For a relaxed atmosphere, this place can't be beaten. From the decor to the quietly attentive waiters, dinner here was a lovely experience. The food was presented well and delicious. We'll definitely be coming back!

I went with two friends here for dinner while our wives and girlfriends where at the Theatre - food was really enjoyable, presented well and very tasty. Scallop starter was excellent. Had to send a bottle of wine back but this naturally wasnt a problem and dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Would reccommend to others, especially a group of friends wishing to have a long relaxed evening over a few courses and a few drinks....
