Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond

Leven, West Dunbartonshire, 45-60£
18/03/2017: We visited while staying nearby with relatives, having previously dined here while staying in the lodges by the loch. On both e occasions the dining experience was fabulous. The food innovative, fresh and so full of flavour. The tasting menu we each had was skilfully designed to hit all your taste buds - which it did with perfection. The staff were friendly and helpful. They showed their knowledge of the menu and provenance of the food in a most helpful manner. The only downside is that we live in England and cannot visit more often!
17/03/2017: Recently returned here for a lovely meal with family. Not as good as our last meal here 6 months ago but still very good. Apple and chestnut dessert was a big miss for all of us though the cherry and chocolate dessert afterwards was stunning. Great staff. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Bit odd seeing hotel staff using guest toilets in a 5* hotel though he wasn't from the restaurant team.

Number 16

Partick West, Glasgow City, <20£
18/03/2017: We had a late Valentine's supper because this wee restaurant is so popular we hadn't booked early enough to get a table for the 14th FebWe were brought iced water without asking, always a good sign. Excellent rolls with balsamic flavoured oil also without asking. We ordered a bottle of the house red, a South African Pinotage, which was good. For starters we had very tasty squid with peppers and tender smoked duck breast with salad. For mains a very good pan fried halibut with beetroot and cauliflower and the other dish was very juicy tender venison with veg. For puddings a chewy macaroon with cream and raspberries and a creamy raspberry desert in the absence of the profiteroles which had all been taken. Excellent espresso coffee.
18/03/2017: This is a great place and the food is beautifully cooked with real flair. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, yet didn't get in the way.

The Fish People Cafe

Govan, Glasgow City
19/03/2017: Visited this restaurant last night and had a very enjoyable meal. Only slight criticism is that we had to wait for our table to be ready and then waited an hour for our starters. That said, the server was very pleasant, the food excellent and we really enjoyed our dinner. It is a little bit pricey, especially the extra cost for vegetables and potatoes but the food is cooked to perfection and served beautifully.
19/03/2017: This restaurant was recommended by friends . We were not disappointed . I had a delicious crab starter with Melba Toast followed by seared scallops with spring onion in a light ginger sauce , delicious . My husband had the crab linguini with chilli which he said was wonderful . The restaurant is small but makes up for it with the friendly attentive staff and nautical themed interior . Fish lovers will not be disappointed as the fish is supplied by the fish shop next door . A definite Glasgow stop for gourmet .

Cail Bruich

Hillhead, Glasgow City
16/03/2017: Since my last review I've visited Cail Bruich several times so feel it's time for an update. The restaurant, comfortable, service, impeccable, but it's the food that's the star. Today I had the tasting menu with paired wines, every course delicious and the wine selection perfect. The sommelier knew his stuff with the wine pairing perfect for each course. No doubt I'll be back soon to this superb restaurant.
14/03/2017: My wife and I celebrated my birthday last Saturday evening with a dinner in Cail Bruich. We had not been before but read the reviews in TripAdvisor. The food was very unique and the combination of spices and cooking give it a memorable experience. The staff were most helpful and friendly and services were all first classWe will certainly return and recommend this restaurant to others

Fanny Trollope's

Anderston / City, Glasgow City, >100£
18/03/2017: Went here on basis of trip advisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Small and focussed on their start - the food. Warm & welcoming and good food. Parking is a challenge and location may give some cause for concern but well worth the visit.
17/03/2017: We visited as a wee pre-show treat and ordered from the A-la-carte menu.We started with the Pan seared scallops, parsnip purée, roast chorizo & an apple gel - delicious. 4 scallops and the accompaniments completed the taste perfectly.I then had pan seared sea bream, king prawn & spring onion kebab, crispy potatoes, salsa verde. Wow, is all I can say, again the combination of flavours were exquisite and the food was cooked to perfection. My partner had one of the specials (Venison), and again I could find no fault at all with it. Perfect.Finally we finished off with the Banoffee cheesecake, caramelised banana, banana curd & salted popcorn for me and the Jaffa cake artic roll, dark chocolate ganache, orange jelly for my partner. A lovely completion to a lovely meal (don't be put off by the Jaffa Cake Arctic Roll title, there wasn't a jaffa cake in sight, but a deconstruction into an arctic roll was a delight).House red was tasty, unlike some of the stuff you get in other restaurants.The service and attention was excellent and the staff knowledgeable and passionate about their product.The seating was comfortable enough, if very slightly cramped. It's a small venue which has to make the most of available space, so understandable.Thanks guys, we'll be back.

Black Sheep Bistro

Hillhead, Glasgow City, 20-30£
18/03/2017: This is becoming my favourite place to eat. We had a 6:30 pm reservation, it's a busy wee place so you have to book well in advance. It's cozy and welcoming; and the staff are lovely. My partner had prawn cocktail and balmoral chicken, I had crab cakes and pesto haddock. All were delicious. We had coffee and soft drinks. The portions are big so I had to rely on my boyfriend to help me finish:) the bill was £58. Happy with that.... although we were unable to do much we were so full for the rest of the night! A great restaurant, well done Black Sheep Bistro
14/03/2017: Lugar bem gostoso. Bom para se estar em casais, famílias ou grupos. Aconchegante com comida deliciosa. Meu prato favorito é Salmão com purê de banana da terra. Suave, combina muito e satisfaz .

Da Claudio

Motherwell South East and Ravenscraig, North Lanarkshire
18/03/2017: I know the title doesn't mean much but it as a really nice restaurant with welcoming staff and excellent food. Our second time there to watch St Johnstone beating the home team. An easy walk from the station and from Air Park. Strongly recommended.
15/03/2017: Best wee restaurant in Motherwell. 5 Star service, 5 star food. Will definitely visit again. Fantastic atmosphere.

Ox and Finch

Anderston / City, Glasgow City
17/03/2017: A varied menu of small dishes for sharing is a perfect way to eat in my book, and that's just what the Ox and Finch provides.
16/03/2017: The food was fabulous to a dish and the staff were even better. They had just the right amount of care for us without overdoing things. They also have a beautiful choice of wines.

Gamba Seafood Restaurant

3 offers
Anderston / City, Glasgow City, 30-45£
13/03/2017: We returned to our favourite restaurant in Glasgow after a 3 year break when we retired and were not disappointed.Gamba continues to outshine anywhere we have ever eaten and excels in producing the finest fish and seafood all beautifully presented by professional and efficient service. Thank you
12/03/2017: Initial impression of Gamba was fine seafood restaurant and the meal lived up to that expectation.However, and I don't like starting off negative but the only negative aspect of this experience occurred at the start.After entering and being shown to the bar, where the other members of my party were waiting, we greeted each other and had small conversation. Then one of the members of the party, the main booker in fact said that they were still waiting for the table. The woman behind the bar, who was eavesdropping obviously, butted in quite defensively and corrected the party member in what I perceive as a hostile and rude tone. She essentially said that the table has always been ready and they were just waiting on "them" (pointing to me and my fiancé) she then tried to salvage and asked if we'd like to be seated and she would go and get someone to show us to the table. I felt like saying no but it wasn't my booking and it's not my celebration. But it was not a pleasant way to start our dining experience and if she hadn't said that I would have given five stars. Anyway, now that I've gotten that out of the way. The rest of the staff were so friendly, accommodating and attentive. My only suggestion to improve would be to add more cocktails to the menu. Our party weren't dazzled by the list but I guess cocktails are more a trendy restaurant accompaniment as opposed to a fine dining establishment beverage.The choice on the menu was decadent and I mean that in the best way. Everything seemed so eloquently placed and created by an obviously skilled chef.I had the Sashimi yellow fin tuna and it was delicious! It was accompanied with finely sliced scallops. The tuna was delicately situated on the plate to create a Rose. If you're okay eating cold fish with chopsticks then I recommend this.One of my party had the Portland crab and it was the starter of the night. It was so creamy and rich, or so I was told by everyone at the table. I never got to try it! But next time I'll try it!Another party member had the soup and they said it was beautiful and delicious, again I'll have to take their word on it as I was the only one that never had it! I'll order two starters next time so I can taste it!And the last party member had the salmon and that was amazing but you can never go wrong with some salmon, especially if its done properly.MainsI had the Monkfish tamari steam cooked in paper. It had to have been one of the nicest fish dishes I have ever tried and I would have no trouble in recommending it to anyone. All the proteins in that paper were so tender and succulent. It was the first time I had tried steam scallops, which accompanies it, and they were so tender and juicy. My preference remains seared but steamed was still amazing!One member of my party got the seared king scallops with black pudding and I never knew how well those two things went together until now. Bravo! The Seabass was the main of the night as it contained spicy elements on the plate that reminded us all of the Mediterranean and tapas. The fish was expertly cooked and combined with pepper, garlic and prawns; perfection!Lastly the halibut and that contained an unusual combination of mango and crab but to my surprise it was delicious. The sweetness of the mango and the saltiness of the crab (maybe due to this member liking salt too much) went perfectly.We all had a desert each and they weren't the best in the world unfortunately. The cherry and amaretto creme brûlée was too sweet and sickly, their special bake well was also too sweet and sickly. My cheesecake was not overly sweet to my surprise considering the other deserts but it was rather bland with only the slightest touch of a peanut butter like taste.Perhaps that was what they were going for when making it. Overall, we were all very happy with our meal and the service. Food was outstanding and better than most places in Glasgow. Please don't take my nitpicking to mean the food was in anyway bad, it just wasn't matching the presumed taste in my head.I would definitely suggest trying Gamba to everyone who loves seafood and fine dining.Thanks for reading!

The Gannet

Anderston / City, Glasgow City, 30-45£
18/03/2017: Seated upstairs , lovely cosy feeling. Good service, friendly, fabulous food, presented well. Good selection of wines
16/03/2017: Restaurant has been! It may once have been excellent but like so many of the newcomers on the block it has reached its 'wall'. My partner had the poached and scorched leek with pearl barley. It sounded great but was badly presented and tasteless. I had the pheasant risotto. Firstly now that I think of it pheasant is now out of season, and secondly the term 'risotto' which is derived from the Italian 'riso' which means rice would suggest that the main ingredient is rice. It was barley. perhaps the chef ran out of rice for the risotto and used the barley from the scorched leek & pearl barley in it's place. But judging by the amount of time it took to be served from ordering, he should have been able to go to the corner shop and replenish his rice stock and cook it.For mains my partner had Whole plaice. This was not a whole plaice it wasn't even a half of a plaice, but a half of one top fillet. Given that the cost of plaice at retail fishmongers is around the £8/kg she was given about 150 grams ( around £1.35 worth). Again not well presented and with little flavour. I had agnolotti. These were made in house but looked like a pasta made for Chinese dumplings. It was chewy and if not for the strong garlic paste inside would also have been tastless. This too took an age to come to the table. As time was pressing at this point we decided to forgo the dessert.Including 1/2 a litre of wine and two of the most bitter expressos that I have ever tasted the bill came to just under £60. No table cloths and paper napkins certainly not worth the money had it been decent but it was not. They have 3 AA rosettes but the judge that day must have been duped (or worse).

Mussel Inn

Anderston / City, Glasgow City, 20-30£
19/03/2017: Visited here on the 18th of March for a birthday meal. On arriving we were shown to our table and told specials are on the board. This was unreadable even with my glasses on!!!!!! I would have to had stood directly under it to read it ,where other diners were eating. We decided not to bother with the specials. The food was extremely good. I had the seafood platter at £28 it was really worth it. My only complaints are not knowing what the specials are and not having tennents lager. It sells other lagers from around the world but not one brewed in Glasgow!!!! Our server Rebecca was great. She thought we had been told the specials and couldn't apologise enough. . Can't wait to return. I'll need to save though as at £45for two main courses and two drinks I personally thought it was expensive.
19/03/2017: I was in Glasgow for a business trip and wanted to try a local seafood restaurant. I had prawns to start andthe chef accommodated my tastes by omitting the chilli that was specified on the menu. I had 1/2kg of Mussels in shallot sauce which was divine- perfectly cooked and served with fresh bread and butter. The only thing I would have preferred was if they had french fries as a choice instead of chunky chips to accompany. I enjoyed a glass of Chilean sauvignon blanc which went very well with the dish. The drinks were not over-priced as they can be in restaurants these days. To finish I had the chocolate torte which was light and creamy. As well as the food being fantastic, which an open kitchen which I appreciate seeing the chefs prepare my meal- the service was outstanding. The restaurant was busy will all tables full downstairs and three girls were working the floor and bar. They were super cool about it, never looked flustered and checked back at every course served. They gave a warm welcome, friendly manner throughout and genuine goodbye- I used to work in hospitality and if I was their manager I'd be very proud of that team. I'm already looking forward to my next Glasgow trip to visit The Mussel Inn again!

Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery

Anderston / City, Glasgow City
19/03/2017: We were back at the Buttery and had an excellent meal once again. Very nice atmosphere, staff are very attentive and helpful. Food it perfect! Staff also noted it was our anniversary and brought out a selection of treets with "happy anniversay" written in chocolate which was a nice touch. Highly recommend Two Fat Ladies at Buttery. Huge thanks to Maddie and Ryan help sort out wee mix up with booking reference
17/03/2017: I was given a gift voucher for my birthday last July and have just got round to using it!! We were last here in February 2016 and were looking forward to going back. We were not disappointed!! I had the Flash Fried West Coast Scallops for my starter - yummy! Beautiful caramelisation on the scallops which offset the sweetness of the bacon, butter onion, lettuce and garden pea cream!! There was a great choice of main courses but I opted for the Mignons of Perthshire Beef Fillet with Stornoway Black Pudding Crush and Pepper Sauce. The beef was cooked to perfection and the black pudding with potatoes was a great accompaniment. Dessert consisted of a brandy tuile basket with a trio of ice creams. Yummy (again!) Food is consistently good as is the service. Hoping it won't be another year before I go back (but it is my birthday again in July!! - hint, hint!!)

The Western Club Restaurant

Anderston / City, Glasgow City
12/03/2017: We were looking forward to a birthday celebration at the Western Club last night however we were very disappointed with our experience.Firstly, the welcome was poor for the waiting staff, no real greeting as we are shown to our table. The atmosphere and decor are okay but the staff are not friendly nor attentive so make the place feel a bit bland.We asked for drinks and a cocktail menu first as we wished to have a cocktail while waiting on our food. The drinks took forever to come...served during the starters. On the positive side the food was served quickly and was well presented. The quality of the food was good and enjoyed by all in our party. Expensive for what it was though.Our experience was a real let down due to waiting staff. One waitress was stroppy, sighing and eye rolling, we are not very demanding customers! Good service makes all the difference to a dining experience. We wont be back to eat here again. Found much better service else where.
11/03/2017: At one time service left a lot to be desired however on this occasion we were well looked after all the time by one waitress which, although old fashioned perhaps nowadays, made for excellent service. Our steak was well prepared but, oh dear, how soggy and unacceptable were the chips. We drew attention to this and they were replaced by equally soggy and unacceptable chips...someone, somewhere should be paying attention! We had coffee.....at £3.25 for expresso perhaps the most expensive in the city. A bit more focus on food and prices and it would be excellent all the way
