    Visited the Alea Restaurant for food for the first time and found the food of high standard and great value, drinks could be a little cheaper but overall had such a nice time I have booked to return.

    We booked this restaurant after spending some time choosing a special place for a family reunion. We had family travel through from Edinburgh to Glasgow for the occasion; my husband and his son had not seen each other for several years. We were absolutley appalled when his son's girlfriend (aged 23) was stopped a the front reception desk and asked for ID. Clearly she was not underage!! She has never been asked for ID, and therefore sees no need to carry it. When we explained that we had booked the restaurant for a family reunion, we were met with "well if she has no ID, we cant let you in". Left feeling extremely intimidated by the mob handed approach of the door staff and had to drive around looking for another restaurant. APPALLING!

    The restaurant was very nice and the food was lovely. Booked a table for me and gfs first anniversary together. The only thing was one of the waitresses really should be a little more enthusiatic about her job as she gave us occasional stares and spoke with an attitude which made us feel unwelcomed. This was not what I expected from a reputable restaurant such as this. I feel this has ruined our aniversary dinner. However all other members of staff was very friendly.

  • Anniversary meal

    Dined on 23/8/2014
    Had a lovely anniversary meal last Saturday. The food was excellent, the view over the river Clyde was stunning on a beautiful sunny evening. I've given 4 stars for value as we thought the menu price suppliments were a bit hefty. However food was excellent and good choices. 4 stars for service, it was very good but why are waitresses allowed to wear long hair 'down'? Whilst serving bread at the next table the waitress leaned forward to give bread to the diners and her hair was in the platter of bread, bit off putting. Great atmosphere. I would definately go back. Lets hope the waitresses wear their hair up.

    Great Service initially but it all went a bit pear shaped towards the end of the evening. After Michelle left, the other waitress seemed to be annoyed and angry. She was not pleasant. There was only 1 other table left at the end of the evening, so not sure why the service became so bad. Definitely ask for Michelle - she is helpful and charming.

    I found some of the waitress not so warm (no smiles) with the exception of two. The starter was lovely and also the desert however the main course was very disappointing - turmeric and coriander crusted cannon of lamb. You would expect it to be crispy on top & pink in the middle but it out soggy & overcooked. I'll have to think twice before going here again.

    Had dinner in your red leaf glagow restaurant on Saturday night. The food was great but unfortunately the good food was let down by terrible service. Not once where my husband and I asked how our food was and my husbands main course was practically thrown infront of him. The server seemed more concerned in talking to the couple at the next table. We made a drinks order just before our mains arrived but the weren't served to us until we asked twice for them and by the time tehy arrived we had both finished out main course's. I think In this case great food was let down by awful service. A smile and some standard of service would have made a huge difference.

    One of our party only had a starter and a sweet as she had just come out of hospital after a major operation I was disappointed to be charged for the full meal. I felt in the circumstances some allowance should have been made. The menu is very loaded with supplements. With a new price but with more or less the same contents does not show a great deal of inovation

    The food was presented beautifully but some meals were lacking a bit of flavour, the scallops starter for example was stunning to look at but tasted very "blah". The sticky toffee pudding was my highlight but it didn't need the sickly sweet white chocolate cream on the side or the gingersnap basket. 2 scoops of ice cream would've been better. We were dining at 7pm before the restaurant got busy so the service was too fast. We had 5 minutes between courses which wasn't ideal. Then once they got a bit busier it took about 10 minutes to get our bill. I also ordered a drink which never appeared although was on my bill. I would go back though because the venue was excellent and we had a great time in the Long Bar after our meal.

    great location and decore but some of the basics let it down. Ambient lighting would be nice instead of FULL strength bright lights, ruins the mood. Suitable music would be better rather than dance and pop music which was being played on out visit. A full a la carte menu on offer would be better suited rather than the cheap set menu. Having a host or someone at the bar to welcome guests would have made a much better impression rather than staff shouting down the corridor to each other that there were people waiting. On the plus side, beautiful decor (except the horrible red neon nandos sign at a prime window seat that could easily hidden with a frosted tint on lower half of the window) staff very friendly, good cocktails and tasty food.

    A very well presented four course dinner which was very enjoyable. It was a little unfortunate that the restaurant only had one vegetarian option starter left when there were two vegetarians in our party, but the chef made up another and most delicious vegetarian starter, so the crisis was averted!

All cooked to perfection, and beautifully presented. Compliments to the chef. The ambience is very classy at such a reasonable cost.

    Unfortunately, I got a phone call the night before I went advising that they were now in the Festive Menu and my meal would be £35 instead of the expected £20. However, it was nice of the restaurant to call and let me know otherwise I could have been washing the dishes However, despite this, the food was exceptional and although it didn't look as if much was on the plate it was very filling. The steak is definitely the best I have ever had and the setting was beautiful. It was so beautiful that I choose that occasion to propose which thankfully was accepted.

    We had the three courses for £20 menu on Sat night and even choosing the options that had a surcharge, it was still fantastic value. It wasn't at the expense of the quality of the food as everything we both had was great. Having eaten out at many much more expensive restaurants in Glasgow, this has got to be one of the most cost effective ways of having great food at a more reasonable price point.

    Lovely setting - great views along the Clyde but food was a average - they wouldn't consider a small portion of risotto as a starter for one of our guests because they were too busy (despite the fact that staff were milling around waiting for guests to arrive) - how can you be too busy to spoon out a smaller portion of risotto?? Service was poor, wine list disappointing and they didn't have the one wine we chose. Staff in need of customer care training. A smile would be a good start!

    I've been here quite a few times. The good is great for the price and the restaurant is lovely. However the service is always a little slapdash and something always seems to go wrong. This time one main course and two deserts were incorrect and while these we're replace we didn't get so much as an apology.

    We really enjoyed the ambience of the Red Leaf Restaurant, It was very comfortable for our first time ever being there and the service was well-timed and very friendly and helpful. I definitely would return to try more dishes from the Red Leaf Restaurant. The steak was amazing. The table was great and we had a great view of the River Clyde and the Clyde Arc bridge. Very affordable, Very good and an added bonus afterwards we won £200 at the Casino.

    I took a friend to the Red Leaf as somewhere different to try for the Wednesday special dining experience. We were not disappointed. The meals were fabulous as usual. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys eating out. The service is generally very good, the staff know when to talk to you and when to leave you alone, although this can be tricky when trying to get the bill! The views of the Clyde are tremendous.
