    My wife and I were running late and were attending to the Emeli Sande concert at Oran Mor. We arrived at 6pm and were quick to order. The staff knew we were going to the concert! Initially we both ordered monkfish which 5 minutes we were told was no longer available. I would expect that servicing staff know when something is close to no longer being available and tell customers that they need to check. We ordered again within a few minutes and then the wait started. At 6.30pm I asked if it was taking much longer being told it was busy. At 6.45pm we had enough and cancelled the order (only main courses), paid for the 2 glasses of wine (£15.50, so not overly cheap but not very good) and left, hungry and joined the queue for the concert. If the staff had told us that it was going to take such a long time, we could have tried to get a quick bite somewhere else. Thankfully the concert was great. A very disappointing experience at an otherwise beautiful venue.

    One of the best place to eat and drink in Glasgow ! Fantastic Setting and atmosphere. We eat some haggis balls to start 😋 and go on with Fish&Chips. Both were delicious 😀. Good selection of whiskies.

    Thought it would be good/handy to book for something to eat here, as we were going to a show downstairs. Been to the bar before (good) but first time dining. Cheeseburger came with no cheese; staff took this away, and quickly returned [same meal] having removed the top bun and melting a thin cheese slice onto it. Asked staff for salt and vinegar, but provided with pepper and vinegar instead - luckily noticed before further ruing meal. Buttermilk Chicken burger was crispy, but very dry inside. Both meals 'hand cut chips' were very dried out inside - as if they had been cooked earlier en-mass, and left out (tasted like oven-chips). Didn't expect this from here; maybe because it was a Saturday evening? Disappointed; will go to the bar again .... but will give the dining a miss.

    Need to do better. Lovely setting but food was average at best. Thai chicken salad, chicken was nice but salad very bland, monkfish overcooked . Due to a wedding in the function suite we were told there would be a delay to getting our meal, it was 50 minutes which is really not acceptable!

    Good dining experience, easy online booking system, with reminder on day prior to reservation, acknowledgement of arrival. Attentive service from staff, knowledgeable about dishes and whether anything else required. Food tasty and hot. I had sea bass and partner had haggis burger. Recommended.

    When we arrived we were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our table. Good start. However, the starters arrived I had smoked salmon which was very good. My wife ordered the haggis starter but the kitchen plated a main course. The manager arrived with it and said that rather than redo the order my wife could have the main for a starter. But my wife did not want this. She was told not to worry if she did not eat it all. My wife didn’t want it all and besides didn’t enjoy the haggis and ate only a fork full but enjoyed the turnip only. My main was stake pie some of the steak which was burnt and the pastry was as dry as dust and the potatoes had too much salt. And the quantity of steak for what it was was about 6 tiny pieces. The vegetables had a chemical taste to them. My wife had sea bass for her main and says it was pleasant. For dessert I had three balls of ice cream. The ice cream was served in a bowl and did not even rise above the rim. Each ball was about the size of lychee fruit. In other words tiny. Smaller than a portion one would give to a small infant. My wife had crème brûlée with white chocolate and raspberry which was disappointing: strange texture due to pieces of white chocolate which meant it wasn’t the texture expected of a crème brûlée which is usually a light texture. All in all after a prior good experience here last year this was a great big let down. Fortunately we went to great concert afterwards. The waiting staff could not be faulted. However, the kitchen and management perhaps need to take a look at how they do their food and treat their customers especially if they want to serve more than burgers!
