Usquabae was a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable regarding our food and —even better— the whiskys we enjoyed. The food was delicious, and our private dining nook was delightful. This was my second time visiting Usquabae, and I know I’ll be back when I’m in town.

Loved the intimate table surrounded by whisky. Bottle of white wine we had was very good but at least another choice would have been better. Food was tasty and presented well. Will definitely be back.

Overall experience was very good. Staff very helpful and attentive. Wonderful to have the whisky pairing for the dishes. Wine list could possibly be a bit more extensive, particularly for those who may not want whisky! Seems a little bit light on choices. Certainly worth visiting the restaurant

The place was lovely although where we were sat it was a little cold. Staff were very friendly and the food was good but we thought a little expensive for the starter, especially £13.95 for one scallop!
