A stunning piece of Edinburgh history, The Brasserie sits inside the converted 160-year-old church Glasshouse Hotel. Its floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of Carlton Hill, there is a tranquil rooftop garden, and traditional afternoon teas to enjoy.
The Brasserie menu focuses on wholesome Scottish dining made with regional ingredients, with inventive flourishes. Flavoursome starters include slow-cooked leg and roasted breast of Perthshire wood pigeon with gooseberry and Edinburgh gin chutney and watercress porridge. There is fresh seafood like pink peppercorn and cardamom crumbed stone bass with potato dumplings, as well as a succulent grill selection.
Inventive desserts feature creations like strawberry mousse with pistachio crumb and prosecco granita, and there is an inviting snug bar area that boasts tremendous wine and fine whisky menus. Afternoon teas at The Brasserie Edinburgh include all the classic sweet and savoury additions, and during the summer there are picnics in the 2-acre rooftop garden.
Filled with history, and with a great range of luxurious areas to drink, dine and relax in, The Brasserie sits 8 minutes from Edinburgh Waverley Rail Station.

Very dissapointed everything was overbaked and a bit dry. Tried 2 kinds of tea and they were both as weak as dishwater didnt think it was worth the money and it was a present so felt awful telling them i didnt enjoy it

Was a lovely experience, ultra-posh, beautiful view, lovely staff and good food. Only problem was a surprise service charge which was not made clear to us before at all (something which I believe is actually illegal). Caused a bit of alarm as neither me or my friend have the most money and this was a special treat together as we live on other sides of the world.

Superb experience my wife and I went for Valentine dinner, from the moment we walked into reception we were blown away by the hotel, the staff were super friendly and showed us the way to the restaurant, the walk to the restaurant was amazing the corridors were full of amazing statues that light up, when you arrive at the bar it adds to the experience with the most amazing fire in the centre of the table, the restaurant itself is tastefully decorated with a good mixture of seating and tables with interesting views of Edinburgh. The hotel also has an amazing roof top garden which on a summers evening you can sit outside and have a picnic which is supplied by the hotel whilst you enjoy spectacular views of Edinburgh City. Every member of staff were professional, polite and very friendly making our experience even better. Both my wife and I came home feeling we had enjoyed a really good night out, somewhere a bit special and different whilst delivering excellent value for money. Great dining experience, exceptionally good staff, excellent food A GREAT NIGHT OUT

We were excited to dine here but the service let it down terribly. We waited over 35 minutes for our starter and it was over an hour before we were served our main. Food was ok. We could not understand why it had taken so long? All sides are charged as extras. Staff were polite and the surroundings are lovely but food quality and timings let it down.

Booked for afternoon tea, for 2 people, at 3pm. Firstly, I should say it was all lovely and there was plenty of it. But, and this is an observation, rather than a complaint, the menu isn't quite true to what you get. For example, gingerbread man is a round ginger biscuit. Winter fruit scone is just a plain scone. Egg and cress something (I forget what) had no cress visible. Shortbread selections (plural) was just a shortbread (singular). So, I'd simply advise them to adjust their menu to reflect what you actually receive. But a minor quibble, really.

The food and staff were excellent but the layout of the hotel was very strange. To get from the front door to the brasserie we had to go up in a lift, then passed lots of bedrooms then down stairs. one of our party has mobility issues and this was completely unsuitable for her and she struggled. We were told there was another lift we could use when leaving but there was no-one to show us where it was. The toilets were also very poor. We won't be back and won't be recommending

booked as a surprise for
my friends birthday and was so impressed with the staff the menu everything was perfect.

I booked Prosecco afternoon tea as a birthday gift for my friend.
We were greeted nicely and taken to The Brasserie. This is as at the rear of the hotel.
Staff were relatively friendly and attentive.
There was nothing special about this room or the tables. The food was presented on a wonky cake stand! We had to return our tablet as it had melted over the top plate.
The savoury food was nice and varied. The lamb/haggis balls contained very little haggis.
The cakes were ok. The tablet was gritty so was left.
The prosecco was not pleasant. We were never offered or shown a drinks menu. We had to ask for more tea. We were never offered or asked if we would like additional drinks.
Unfortunately, I would not recommend this venue to friends as I felt the room was disappointing. Compared to other venues there was just nothing special or pleasant.
