Came on time but had to wait for our table for 15 min even tough the place wasn't full. We had cocktails while waiting so it was ok. Had very good steak and potatoes. The service was ok. Went to the skittles bar for a beer. I could not pay with card.

Dear Benthemanwhotravels,

Thank you very much for your review on your recent visit to STEAK Edinburgh.
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your steaks with us.
So sorry if we mad you feel left behind in our bar but we are delighted that you liked the cocktails while waited. The only reason we can think for your wait was to allocate a nicer table for you on the night.
We do apologise for the card machine issue in Beer & Skittles Bar, the problem could only be fixed the following day.

Kind Regards,

STEAK Management.

My boyfriend and I have just left Steak restuarant this evening and both had the opinion of the steaks being "just average". We visited here on the recommendations of other diners claiming it to have the "best steaks". Sadly, that wasn't our experience. We love steaks and have frequented many different steak houses around the country so was pretty excited to eat here. We both ordered the sirloin, cooked medium-well. Mine was well done at minimum and his was seconds off being well done. Both our steaks were quite fatty, which was a disappointment for us as we had to cut a lot away. In our opinion, these steaks were just average and not what we expected from a steak house at all. Because of that, we thought they were very overpriced at £25 a piece. That's just for the steak - it's £4 for a portion of chips plus £2 for a sauce. Our bill came to £72 just for two mains and two drinks. Absolutely ridiculous for the average steak. If you're an average Joe I wouldn't recommend. If you have plenty of cash to throw at mediocre food then this might be the place for you. Certainly won't be returning.

Dear lea_d87,

Thank you so much for taking the time for reviewing us on your recent visit to STEAK Edinburgh.
I was of course sad to hear that your experience was not up to the standard that you expected.
We do apologise if the steaks were slightly overcooked to your liking.
We do take feedback very seriously, therefore we looked into our entire stock of Sirloin Steaks to analyse them and make sure that the marbling and the fat content is as it should be. To date we found all Sirloins to the standard of our restaurant and will keep monitoring it in the future.
We are sorry to hear that you will not be returning to us, if you change your mind, we would love to show you that we can do better at your next visit.

Kind Regards,

STEAK Management.

Oh my God....
The welcome from the hostess, the decor, ambiance... all amazing. We were off to a good start already. Ordered couple of cocktails from the special menu and they were great. Soon after we were shown to our table, which was private and nicely placed. Quickly ordered food as couldn't wait any longer to try the steak.
We had Leek&Potato Soup and also Scallops with leek terrine. What a great start. Fresh bread and butter served with starters. Soup nice, creamy and very flavourful, scallop tasted fresh and the dish looked very pretty.
Now, let's get down to business... STEAK-STEAK-STEAK.... incredible. My fillet steak was cooked to perfection. Tender, tasty and juicy. The 45 days Rib eye steak again, was cooked perfectly and God, that is probably the best ever.
Peppercorn sauce beautifully creamy and you have to have the creamed peas as a side. Put of this world.
We shared a chocolate dessert with pistachio ice cream - again, amazing.
The service, from start to finish was top class. Attentive, friendly and passionate. It was a very very full restaurant when we were here but our server had time to talk to us during our time there and to other tables around us. Seemed very busy but well controlled.
Thank you for the amazing night.
Can't wait to visit again.

After a warm and friendly welcome from the host, we were shown to our table in the beautiful restaurant. The decor is lovely, and provides a great atmosphere. The host recommended a locally brewed beer, which went down very well. The food was fantastic (including the vegetarian meal!) - couldn't fault anything.

I can't wait to go again!

I know a lot of other reviewers have probably said this, too, but I had the best ever steak here! Not only was the food outstanding, the service was perfect. One of the hosts was excited to select a beer for me and he picked a brilliant one! Will definitely be back.
