My fav go to restaurant in Glasgow especially on Monday night when they offer their tasting menu. A showcase of their creative talents which is sublime, thoughtfully created, incredibly well priced and delicious. Cosy and bijou with an intimate and easy interior you can sink into and enjoy. I even Shazam some of their music which is as cool as the guys who work there. 5*

The food was wonderful , but venue felt a little cramped and quite noisy with music playing and everyone talking louder to be heard I suspect.

Don't typically write reviews but this is the 3rd time I've been to the 88 and it's been brilliant each visit. Took a party of four and we tanned the whole menu

Great ambience and very good selection of small plates. Excellent service and with some tables clearly intent on enjoying themselves noise levels were high although to be fair our waitress off her own bat moved us to a quieter table which was much appreciated. First time here in its present guise and we shall be back.

Went there for the Monday tasting menu £25 pp. I’m not in favour of some of dishes. But their presentation was top class. Loved the pork fillet and the final dessert!

Foods great but feel like a bit of a mug paying £80 for 1 bottle of wine & 4 small plates between 2 people. We left still hungry, ended up getting a takeaway from across the road.

We had such an amazing meal at Eighty Eight. The restaurant has a wonderful welcoming and cosy atmosphere and the staff were lovely and friendly and made us comfortable. We had some of the tastiest food I have ever eaten! Every dish was unique and genuinely delicious. We especially loved the tender stem broccoli and the mushroom tagliatelle, we even ordered more of them because they were SO good. Thank you for such a special evening and we can't wait to come back.

Food was good, not spectacular - catered very well to an omnivore and a vegetarian. Was a little slow to get going and that then resulted in the end of the meal feeling very rushed. The server was clearly anxious regarding the next table but it felt pushy - she told us we only had half an hour when we had 45 minutes, told us that the next diners had arrived when actually they were 10 minutes early. For the tasting menu longer should be left between bookings so that the full experience can be enjoyed without feeling rushed. We also would have been happy to receive more plates at the same time. If we went back we both said we wouldn’t do the sharing menu again but would just choose a few plates from the menu.
The restaurant is also very small, and whilst not much can be done about that if I’d been the girl on the next table that had to sit right next to the door for the toilet I would have been a bit annoyed.

Hi Iona, We do apologise for causing you to feel rushed. The pacing and delivery of dishes depend on the guests, so this kind of situation can be avoided. In this incident, we extended your dining slot by 45 minutes on top of the original 2-hour slot to allow you to finish the last two courses. We'd love to let our guests stay longer but it is a constant battle for us to fit everyone in on time. We look forward to welcoming you back again hopefully on a less hectic day. Best, Eighty Eight

Menu very exciting and varied with lots for vegetarians. However, one of the veggie pasta dishes was so salty it was almost inedible. Fairly pricey too.

Waiting staff great.

Too noisy and too dark. The table is super small and uncomfortable. Service was not good. We’re often ignored. The food was not impressive and the price was unreasonable

This is a very nice wee place - a fitting successor to the Two Fat Ladies as it used to be. Inventive and expertly prepared dishes with the seafood elements the absolute highlight. The best dish was the squid with prawn and n’duja tortellini - just sublime.

Nice restaurant but waiting time was quite too looooong. 3 people ordered 6 dishes and all dishes took more than 45 minutes to be served, not to mention there were only 2 tables seated with guests at that time…Are we expecting too much or is this a normal situation in the UK? Really confused as foreigners.
I would say food was worth waiting but it would really be better if dishes can be served simultaneously in a shorter time instead of bringing only one dish and spending another 15 minutes to prepare for the second one.

The nicest welcome from possibly the best waitress in Glasgow and truly delicious and innovative food, the seared mackerel was excellent but the squid and prawn tortellini was divine.

Brilliant place, fab food if you like small plates to share, amazing presentation, staff etc. Stlylish, industrial type decor. It was quiet so the only reason that ambience was only 4 stars
