  • 3rd Anniversary Dinner
    AmyMac
    Dined on 23/8/2014
    We went to the Living Room Glasgow on our first date, and make a point of going back every year on our anniversary. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our table. Being veggie, I normally don't have much of a choice to make when I eat out, but there were 3 or 4 options that all sounded amazing, so it took me a while to decide! I ended up asking our waiter for his recommendation, which he was very honest with - I really appreciated that, it made me trust him, so I went for the gnocci - which was amazing! We asked for garlic bread with our main which didn't come, and no waiters had passed so we couldn't ask for it. They apologised for the error and gave us our desert on the house which made up for it. Already looking forward to next year!

    My partner and I are regulars of The Living Room when it comes to special occasions. We dined here on 13/8 for my partners birthday and it did not dissapoint! Service was excellent despite the young man being rushed off his feet he did not show this, very attentive, great banter and always ensuring we had plenty to drink! Food was delicious as usual, can not fault it! We look forward to coming back again :)

    Close to the central train station. Short walk from the centre of town. Went for lunch during the last weekend of the commonwealth games. It was surprisingly quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Large menu, lots of variety, which sometime made it difficult to choose. More than happy to go back.

    We ate here and the drinks and food were great. Surprisingly it was very empty for a Friday evening but that's neither here nor there. When the bill arrived there were 5 extra drinks that we didn't have on there and as they were cocktails, the error totalled over £30 that shouldn't have been on the bill. Thankfully the server removed these without question which was good and she was helpful and patient when one of our guests' overseas visa cards wouldn't process in the card machine.

    I have been several time to the Living Room Glasgow and its always been a busy restraunt and bar but due to the Commonwealth Games the restraunt was much quieter. this only added to our experience. it meant we wern't rushed and our waiter was able to spend even more time with us discussing the meanu recomendations and specials. On choosing our wine we were advised that they were all out of Pino Grigio so there was a little rivalry between the Waiter and the bar staff as a suitable alternative again this added to the evening, getting some tasters to help us make our choice. The service was as slick as ever and all in all an excellent evening excellent food and excellent service.

    Went here after Commonwealth games and only had limited menu because they had been very busy. No steaks which we were looking forward to as we have always had great meals before. Two people had pork which was dry and missing the crackling and stuffing. Two people had chicken which was missing the sauce. You could bounce the Yorkshire puddings off the flip they were over cooked! That said we did complain and were given a discount. Had this been our first time we would not ge back. However we have always had geat meals before and will take this as a one off bad meal. Service was great and staff were friendly.

    Had a minor problem with potatoes being a bit unseasoned. When we pointed this out to waitress, she immediately notified the kitchen. We were apologised to and meal taken off bill and given complimentary desserts. With that service, you would not hesitate to go back, and I will.

    Dined on 26/6/2014
    We recently dined in the Living Room ,Glasgow as part of an outing to the theatre. I was not overly impressed withe welcome. You wait at what passes for the entrance until a server bothers to come and show you to your table. They are not quick to clear away or bring the bill either. It was annoying the number of times walked past empty plates rather than clear away. The food is good but not scintillating and the menu was the same as in February at our last visit. Food was slow to arrive and there was a large gap between courses, leaving us no time to have a dessert. The coffee came lukewarm. Do not think I will hurry back

    Me and my fiancé came here for a birthday meal. Ordered pasta for mains and I had duck. The pasta was so bland and tasteless we left it and the manager admitted it was a poor dish. Straight away this removed from bill. Also £17 for a slice of tasteless duck wasnt acceptable. We were giving a couple of free cocktails. The living room is a great place to drink but would never eat here again. Waitress who was on and manager couldnt do enough for us also. Just a pity the food was awful

    This restaurant we have been to many times, and on sat night we were very disappointed, when we arrived no one was there to greet us we waited about 5mins to be seated when my main course came out it was wrong and I had to wait for another meal to be made and my partner had to eat without me, when mines arrived it was dry and the lamb was dripping with blood and not cooked through so I left it, I also ordered a drink and waited 20mins for it. This was our favourite place for date night and now we not be returning :(

    I took my mum here and the service was rubbish. Had to wait almost an hour before our food arrived, even then it was only one plate and had to wait ages again for the 2nd. Had to ask for more drinks by catching random waiters as we were only asked once as we initially sat down. my prawn curry had bits of chicken in it. The rice was under cooked. I asked for fries with my main, they never arrived. Suffice it to say we never tipped and we won't be back, nor will we be recommending it to any of our friends.

    Upon arrival I was told we would have to wait for a booked table, we then waited 15 minutes for our first drink. One meal arrived some time after the other four and we had to ask for a desert menu three times. We also had a considerable wait for our second drink and had to ask twice for this. The services was pretty awful. I was disappointed as often come for business lunches and had told my family that this was a good restaurant.

    Very nice restaurant and great pianist. Drinks - had a great selection and cocktails were fab. The big let down was the food. It was very average and we waited a long time to be served and a few items on the menu were sold out (we were booked in at 7.30pm, not exactly late). I would definitely return for drinks and to hear the pianist, but don't think I will be booking a table for dinner any time soon. Quite disappointed.

Staff were lovely,really couldn't have been nicer but was so disappointed in the food. It was all a bit ordinary,nothing wrong with any of the courses, just not very exciting. Atmosphere was good...a nice buzz and a live pianist. Prices were a little high for what you got .

    We went on a Friday night to celebrate a friends birthday. We had gone for some drinks before hand and ended up running a bit late but they were happy to push our booking back by half an hour which worked perfectly. From the moment we walked in there was a great atmosphere. We were starving so ordered some nibbles, then starters and mains. The food was delicious, we had a range of items from the menu. And the cocktails were flowing, with fishbowls of our choice made of request for us. Would definitely go back and definitely recommend!

    Food wasn't good. Buttermilk chicken for starter was tasteless and dry. Steak and ale pie again was tasteless, meat was very fatty and seemed like the cheapest possible meat was used. Burger was very average and chips were undercooked. Only good part about the meal was the cocktails. Service was rushed and unfriendly, server didn't even ask how our meal was at the end.

    My husband and I used to eat in The Livingroom regularly but haven't been for approx 2 years. We used to love coming here and were looking forward to some good quality cookedfood. Unfortunately either they have a new chef or are trying to go in a different direction to what they used to be. The food was tasteless and very greasy, the scallops we have for starters were the worst tasting pieces of food I have ever had, out main (a pork dish) was basically just a piece of greasy fat that was also tasteless and it was meant to come with mash which never surfaced. Needless to say we skipped dessert as we were really deflated at what we had experienced so far. This used to be our favourite restaurant but sadly we won't be returning.

    I booked up thinking that the menu looked great and that the Living Room would be a perfect treat for my mum. When we turned up the place was extremely busy and we had arrived 10 minutes late. The manager was very abrupt with us advising that if we had been any later we would have lost our table. That's fine it was our fault but there was no need to be spoken down to like that as we immediately felt uncomfortable. The waitress was fantastic but the food was dreadful. I was served my starter on a dirty smeared plate and my main was served dry and cold as was my mums. I was deeply disappointed with the experience and wish I had booked elsewhere in order that my mum could have enjoyed her day more.
