Was a surprise visit to the restaurant to check out Paul Wallace's food. Had promised my son i would drop in next time we were through in Glasgow. The quality of food was excellent and presentation very good. What made the evening was the attentiveness and chats with the waitresses, they even assisted in organising the surprise at the end of the night. Will most certainly be back again. Thanks for a great evening.

Rustic woody atmosphere , a casual ambiance but Food more on the fine dining end of spectrum . Nice menu choices . Only thing is when booking with open table a Table d’Haut set menu is provided but when we got to the restaurant it was not on offer - just A la Carte . Would definitely recommend

A fabulous intimate setting, perfect place to dine as a couple or in a group with friends. The food was fantastic quality with lots of flavour and beautifully presented. The service was attentive and very friendly. I highly recommend the Turkish Delight for dessert.

Superb. Second time we have been and there is a choice of decent places to eat in Byres Road but we believe this beats the other when all is considered.

Great start with friendly welcoming staff and bread rolls with dipping oil. Starters and mains were delicious too, bit off more than I could chew with a chocolatey dessert. The marscapone and white chocolate bar was huge and for me didn't have the flavour it promised. Wish I'd gone turkish delight instead.

Outstanding as always. Delicious food and very inventive vegetarian options. The 3 course lunch time menu is very good value and the fisher are those found on the a la carte menu.

Service was friendly and enthusiastic and although we were there for a long time at lunch and they had to prepare for the afternoon we did not feel any pressure to leave and were encouraged to stay for coffee.

Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to go for both lunch and dinner.

We both experienced a wonderful evening, friendly staff and a very earm welcome.
The choice of food in all courses was a tough task, only due to the great selection of food. We had a Lamb and pidgeon starter, both were amazing. The mains were not disappointing either with duck and strip beef being our choices. We both had a wonderful evening and would recommend a visit to this little gem!

Possibly the best meal we have ever had in Glasgow. Highly recommended. Took my fiancée there for her birthday. Both absolutely loved it...so much so, we have already arranged to take my mum and dad there for their birthdays. Also had excellent gluten free knowledge/choices (my fiancée has coeliac disease). Top quality food and exceptional service.

Number 16 richly deserves its status as a West End institution. Superb cooking, a beautiful menu, lovely smiley service and a ridiculous bargain at £22 for the three-course set lunch. No skimping on portion or quality of ingredients for the set menu. Can’t recommend highly enough.
