Excellent meal lovely restaurant staff very professional
(**** 27 February 2018 by Paul Heatherington from Dalmahoy
Red Mullet - neither enjoyed or did not enjoy. Insignificant small (tiny) sweet dish
Steak - rib eye was fine. Mushrooms & onions were sweet. I prefer prioper chips - without skin
Desserts - nothing appealed to me. I had ice cream
The table was located near the door to a private function. Guests and staff were regularly going to and 'fro. The function in the adjacent room was a Stag night. It was noisy and it deafening whenever the doors were left open - which they almost always were. In the function room windows had been opened. So whenever a door was ajar my wife and I had a cold blast of air.
The staff are excellent. No complaints there.
But throughout the experience - lasting two hours - was extremely disappointing, the more so because when we last stayed the restaurant was fully booked, so we were expecting something special.

Great food. Busy environment but staff are always on the ball. Afternoon tea absolutely stunning and the kids eat for free is exceptional. Thank you. Wonderful food.

We ordered a fish dish and a steak, both were excellent but the waiter forgot the sauce for the steak and had to be asked 3 times for it. Otherwise it was a good experience.

We were seated in a very chilly restaurant with a few other cold patrons. There was no menu and the service was slow. Our plate of cakes were on the table for 20 minutes before our savouries arrived. Nobody talked through what were given so we had to guess what each thing was. The haggis ball was slightly chilled in the middle (I think it may have been cooked from frozen!) We weren't offered tea, we had to ask for it. Lots of members of staff around but they all seemed to be busy with the wedding that was being held next door. a mediocre experience.

My husband and I had afternoon tea. It was first class and delicious. Staff were very attentive and the service was excellent.

Took American visitors who enjoyed the experience. Starters good but we felt the main menu was limited. Vegetarian option of goats cheese and beetroot had no discernible goats cheese and was mainly thin slices of beetroot. Staff to be commended for redoing a Gaelic coffee which had not been made properly.
However, we had to prevent waitress removing plates while others had not finished eating.
I appreciate this is a golf resort hotel (I play golf) but if Pentlands is the flagship restaurant, we felt that there should be a dress code. Don't think you should allow golfers in shorts and tea shirts and trainers to eat there. They can go to a "dirty" area or the bar.
