We received a voucher for Alston and decided to redeem it on Valentine's to celebrate an anniversary. The atmosphere was great when we walked in, great location too. Drinks tasted fantastic, Raspberry Royale and the Contrary Collins are recommended. We ordered the Alston Burger, Grilled Bream, creamed spinach and beer-battered onions. Unfortunately, this took 70 minutes to arrive at our table. I am going to put it down to the fact that it was probably the busiest night of the year, being Valentine's. I would definitely return as I don't think you can judge on one visit on such a busy night. The food was delicious, the drinks were delicious and the staff were very polite and that is really all that matters.

The meal was lovely, our table not so much. We were seated at the 'Fire Escape' which after 20minutes turned out to also be access to a store room as staff were in and out it every 5 minutes or so and there was an incredibly cold draught every single time!! We did not ask to be moved as the restaurant was very busy (it was Valentine's) and the only free tables were in the middle with staff constantly dancing round them to get to other tables!!
We will return to Alston, but would definitely ask for a table away from the Fire Escape!!

Extremely helpful and friendly staff! The food was delicious, and also some interesting and different choices on the menu. I enjoyed this unique venue and feel there's not many places like it in Glasgow - and I also really liked the blue lighting. And also worth mentioning the great staff again as they made my boyfriend and I feel very welcome as we celebrated his birthday with complementary glasses of Prosecco. We will definitely visit again :)

First time at the restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Despite being a busy Saturday night the service was still great and the food was amazing. Will definitely return in the near future.

Myself and my partner were blown away by how welcoming the staff were and the food was just excellent. We have already recommended Alston to family and many friends. Thank you for making our date night so special!
