Alston Bar & Beef Ratings and Reviews
Once again( 3rd visit) the food, service and overall value are beyond excellent in Alstons.
I have recommended and brought company to Alstons and all have loved it.
We are going to try the Wed menu now Muscle v Mussels and I am sure we wont be disappointed.
From entering this bar/restaurant you are made to feel so welcome . The decor and atmosphere is so relaxed .Its also very trendy but for all ages (senior person)
The service at the table and the bar are not only friendly but very informative as to the food and drinks menu .
Great place right in Central Station how good is that for meeting up with friends .
Thank You for a lovely evening enjoyed by all .
Loved the relaxed feel of this place, magic atmosphere. Staff friendly and service excellent. The steak was particularly good. Good value for money. Chose off the lunch menu and it did not disappoint. Great find within Central Station, certainly wasn't expecting such a place and great for any occasion.
This restaurant is a gem and I am seriously thinking of not telling people how good the food is, the presentation, the quality ,the staff and chefs who prepare and serve and the the excellent location. Because I wont be able to get a table if I tell!!!
However given I have already had 5 friends to dine in Alstons who I know have already told many others and another 2 friends going with me in Jan and they will tell as many as well.
So the keeping quiet is not happening cause I could not deprive others of the marvellous experience of dinning in Alstons.
Thank You All
The ambiance upon entering the restaurant is fantastic and very romantic. The bar is a beauty in marble and glass. The staff was very attentive to our needs and the noise level was mild. The food was delicious, in particular the steaks. Everyone in our group had steak and it was superb. The gin drinks were also excellent. The side dishes that we had could have used a bit more seasoning but that was easily remedied. All-in-all I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fun or romantic atmosphere or anyone visiting Glasgow and staying in the center of the city as it is easy to get to.
This was the second time my wife and I have been to Alston Bar and Grill. I can say without hesitation the drinks and meals were superb. The staff are very friendly, attentive and no problem is ever to small. The Alston has a wonderful Gin selection, so it’s a great place for Gin lovers. I would definitely recommend Alston Bar & Grill.
First time to Alston Bar & Beef. We had the 3 course set menu which was unbelievable value for money and runs until 6.30pm. Selection of gins was super and draught beer and IPAs were good. Friendly quick service and we were not rushed of our table which seems to happening more in restaurants. Food was delicious, beautifully cooked and perfect portion sizes. My three courses were trout, steak then chocolate brownie. We (4) had a super time and will be back, highly recommend.
Visited the alston numerous times wether its been for a few drinks or a meal and it never fails to impress me. My recent visit was for my friends birthday and the staff made it very special for her by giving us both complimentary prosecco and also singing happy birthday. Food is 100% worth the price. Overall a lovely experience, as always.
