Slightly concerned that they didn't have my OpenTable reservation, but we were quickly shown to our table. Excellent breakfast options inc. gluten free toast for me. Excellent service from the waitress.

We'd had a fairly mixed experience last time we were here, but we visited again mainly because we were looking for somewhere central before going on to the theatre.
I wouldn't normally review a second time but this experience was so different from the last that I only thought it fair.
When I phoned they couldn't initially accommodate us at the time I'd requested, but the girl on the phone was really helpful and moved things around so we could come in a little earlier.
It was really busy, but the staff who served us were all very pleasant and really helpful, and despite it being so busy the service was really efficient.
The food we had was very tasty (I can definitely recommend the buttermilk chicken burger) and also pretty reasonably priced.

We were checked into our hotel before 10am- we were staying in the Ibis Syles. We decided to go for breakfast and The Refinery is only across the green. Full scottish breakfast and the vegetarian breakfast ordered. Drinks are charged separately. Food was nice- nothing amazing. With tea and coffee the bill came to almost £25 - expensive for breakfast.

We booked this restaurant for dinner on a afternoon walk around Edinburgh looked very friendly & warm,
When we arrived at 7.30 they took us to a lovely table only my partner said it was freezing because we were near the front door so we asked to be moved, we got our starter of lollipop prawns I’d recommend these very tasty, cocktail drink rumba very nice & went down well, we both had steak with fries it surprised us because it may have been a small serving but it was filling,
I give a 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ sorry I don’t have many photos to show you but I’ll stick on what I have.

I’ve visited on various occasions and although the food has only ever been “ok” the atmosphere has been great. This time I was really upset as it was my birthday dinner. I reserved one of the high tables in the bar but on arrival there was mass confusion....”your table has been moved upstairs” to “we don’t have a table reserved for you”. I dug my heels in as we didn’t want to sit upstairs in the quiet area. Eventually told that they managed to get me a table in the bar because “the other party don’t mind moving upstairs” - sounded like the girl had done me a favour?!?! No apology for inconvenience! Service fine but certainly not warm.

Hi LizzieMGFisher,

Thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback.

I am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your full experience with us on your last visit. Although we never fully guarantee a particular table or area, I am sorry to hear there was confusion over your booking. Our hosts should be on hand to assist where they can so I will pass on your experience to our sales manager to ensure this doesn't happen again.
We do hope you will join us again to let us display our usual Drake & Morgan standards.
Thanks, The Refinery Team.
