    The food, service and atmosphere here was excellent. The wine is maybe a little expensive but overall I cannot recommend the restaurant enough.

    Lovely dinner with a variety of small plates. Only disappointment was the lack of meaty options as most of the dishes were vegetarian based. However was a delicious evening and will definitely be back!

    Food was lovely , the chap who served us let us try different wines as we were looking for something crisp ( wines are by glass and bottle which is fab) we also had cocktails . I have a sore head today but a great night was had . I love it here . I hope the bar next door is successful . Glasgow needs more of these places

    This place is over priced for the food that is served. Too many tables crammed into the small space. Was also very very warm. I wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.

    We were the only people in the restaurant and were originally seated at the back. Moved seat service was good food not great scallops were definitely on the turn and the chicken was undercooked.

    In our current binary world of either 1 or 5 star reviews, I like to make mine a bit more considered. So proprietors/chefs: please don't take offence at my 4 stars... A couple of the dishes didn't really work for me (these things are subjective) but was still very well crafted. And one (the pork fillet) was absolutely sublime. V.good wine list, great service, lovely venue. Overall superb.

    This was a wonderful, delicious, experience! We enjoyed all the flavors and sauces. Exceptional creativity. We were visiting from the US and found this restaurant on Open Table. Glasgow Is a great city to eat in. I felt like we were lucky they put their info on Open Table. The owner came over to chat and said he was testing Open Table. If you are in Glasgow and want a creative wonderful complex evening of great food, come here.

    The food was fine, the portions were small and variable. we could see that the table next to us had a bigger portion of cod than we had. It was tiny and cost £14. I ordered the cheese and we had no cutlery set up for us. On seeing this the waiter ? manager gave the waitress a row, not conducive to creating a nice atmosphere. He put the cheese down and took cutlery/ crockery from the table next to us. No one said what the 3 cheeses were. one was sweaty and looked like it had been out too long. A 10% service charge was added which my companion asked about as unusual for a table for 2. The waitress said they had too as they weren't getting enough tips (paraphrasing) and that people from London expect it. maybe they should look at why they weren't getting enough tips. People should work for their tips, not much incentive if it is already added.

    It started well but finished on a disappointing experience. The wines were choose well. The goat cheese custard was delicious. I would have prefer to have a little more focaccia or a little less garlic butter because the ratio was off. Most of the food was too salty, especially the tagliatelle dish. The pork was dry. The tagliatelle were less than al dente. The chocolate desert tasted liked a chocolate cream dessert that you would get from a supermarket. I would come back to try a different menu as I think that specific menu just did not work for me, and some if the dishes were really good. They staff was great.
