“great for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had breakfast here and enjoyed very much the vegetarian option. Everything was tasty and the service very good. We were especially happy to see that they served breakfast from early on, even on sundays, as we discovered several places not open till 10 or 11 am.

“Poor Service and Average Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Came to Garfunkles as my parents rave about the ones in London. It was a very rainy afternoon in Edinburgh and we decided to have a very late lunch (4pm). The restaurant was virtually empty apart from one table who had arrived before us and one table just leaving. We were greeted quite pleasantly but the time between ordering drinks and getting them..20 minutes!! did I say it was almost empty? A few more people arrive after us and they had babies which seemed to please the staff who cooed over them and seemed to neglect us. The food was average, nothing special so won't be popping into a Garfunkles sometime soon

Hi Sammylammy40

Thank you for your review.

Please accept our sincere apologies that you were left dispointed having visited our high street Garfunkel's restaurant. This is far from our usual standards of food and service, and I will be sure to pass on your feedback so that our staff are aware. We hope you will give Garfunkels another chance in the near future.

Kind Regards
Lauren

“one good, one bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

I've been there twice now, the first time was not so good, it was literally impossible to get contact with a waiter so you could get your bill and pay. The food was avarage, not worth that much money. Second time, I had a very kind waiter, who really took his time to talk about the menu and such, the only downside was that when I got the food it was cold, but all in all good resturant

“Good family pit stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Having not dined at this chain for many years, this was our second visit in six months. At this branch our party of four ordered burgers. The wait was acceptable (though it was mid-afternoon and not busy) and the food was excellent, as demonstrated by the clean plates at the end! We found the staff to be friendly and professional, and would definitely return.
