Visited on 25th September 21. Really looking forward to it. The restaurant is lovely. I orderd the Macaroni Cheese unfortunately it was extremely dry, nice tasting but absolute no sauce, made it difficult to enjoy, possibly a reheat. Which was very dissapointing. The other order was a steak pie which was lovely. It would not stop me going back but just thought it was worth mentioning. I did say to one of the staff but Im not sure they took it on board.

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea in your lovely restaurant. The sandwiches and scones and cakes were all very tasty and we appreciated the unlimited tea and coffee which you don't always get. The staff were charming and very attentive. We'll be back and I'll recommend you to family and friends.

It was very quiet on a Sunday evening, but the whole Merchant City was equally quiet. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was simple good quality Scottish fare at a reasonable price. Background music was unobtrusive and atmospheric. I would go again.

Food was tasty and staff were lovely, but the portions were very small and the staff weren’t very attentive (took a long time to order, for food to be served and to pay bill).

Excellent restaurant- one of my go-to restaurants in Glasgow. Excellent Scottish cuisine and good range of whiskies. Tables nicely set out to give privacy and ambience at the same time.

An excellent meal with attentive service and tasty food. Thoroughly recommended for all visitors to Glasgow.

The menu was reasonably priced and provided interesting choices, with some usual staples alongside more unique choices. The staff were attentive without being overbearing, although we engaged a good deal with them, as it was our first night in the city, which they were happy to do.

We left the restaurant being very satisfied with our meal and would make sure it was on our list of eating places, should we find ourselves in Glasgow again.

Service was good, ambience was good and the facility was clean. Pints and bottled beers with dinner were not cheap. I ordered a lager which was not great, so,I switched to Guinness, which was wonderful. The fish was good, though a little small and a bit greasy, but skinny fries, garden peas and tartar sauce were good. Dessert of Sticky Toffee pudding was awful. Two small squares of pudding just over half an inch thick, hardly any sauce and one small blob of vanilla ice cream. Hardly any taste. I also had an Espresso martini, which was small and in an oyster glass, a bit too bitter and frothy. Not great. I had a far better one in a large nearby Italian restaurant a week ago..... Not a bad place, but needs to raise its game a little now that the pandemic is nearly over.

Typical service ,food really tasty, music excellent. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Night brought to an abrupt halt by staff leaving the bill on the table when we had not asked for it!! We had enjoyed our three courses and were just chatting,actually going to order some coffees. Felt very rude, it wasn’t even 10 o’clock!!! Very sad end to a much needed girls catch up.

A warm welcome at the door. Our request pertaining to my elderly MIL was easily accommodated. Our waiter seemed new but he was very good and personable.

Our food was fantastic. Black pudding fritter, poached egg on sourdough and chicken strips were delicious. Fish and chips and balmoral chicken was first class. A cocktail and 2 soft drinks and 2 coffees. Just over £70 for the 3 of us. Will definitely return.

We chose from the set lunch menu, x 2 cullen skink soups, haggis burger & chips, steak and sausage pie with mash and veg, and sticky toffee pudding to share. We also had wine and beers with our meal, and coffees to go with our dessert.

The food was absolutely fabulous and the service from the two girls attending to our table was outstanding.

We spent more than 3 hours relaxing in the restaurant before being presented with a bill that we thought was great value for what paid.

A small but noticeably nice touch was when we asked for some tap water, we received a large jug with slices of fresh lemon rather than two glasses, which is what we’re used to in most other restaurants.

We will definitely be back to try the Sunday roast!

Arrived early Saturday evening
Warm welcome at entrance
Directed to the bar for pre-dinner drinks, barmaid did not know what a gin fizz was
Told our table was ready
Ordered the sharing steak platter £60 for 2 people
Platter arrived with a side salad of grilled tomatoes Parmesan and lettuce which was delicious
Scallops were amazing
Steak was overdone and very small portion
Overcooked onion rings
Chips and mushroom was ok
Quality of food is the same as what you would get in Witherspoons at half the price, really disappointed
Toilets were dirty and smelled bad
I would not go back I’m afraid

Although we told them in advance it was a graduation celebration no mention was made of this but otherwise everything was excellent including the staff but felt a little isolated in the high sided almost complete circle booth!
