Very nice restaurant within a walking distance to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. We had the lunch menu, which was reasonably priced and tasted delicious! I loved the gin-soaked smoked salmon as the appetizer, and the monkfish cheek as the main dish was very tasty. Honourable mention to the freshly baked rolls!

Wir haben das Restaurant nur durch Zufall über opentable entdeckt und wurden unglaublich positiv überrascht. Der Weg war für uns Touristen nicht ganz einfach (aber im Nachhinein via Bus total simpel). Das Lokal ist recht klein, aber macht es einen wirklich gemütlichen und ungezwungenen Eindruck. Das Team, als auch die Kellnerin waren sehr sympathisch und wirklich bemüht uns einen tollen Abend zu gestalten. Das Essen war von Vorspeise über Hauptgericht und Nachspeise einfach sehr gut mit heimischen Zutaten liebevoll angerichtet. Alles in allem war es ein rundum gelungener und toller Abend. Zum Abschluss haben wir noch ganz persönliche Reisetipps für Glasgow erhalten. Was wünscht man sich mehr ;o)

We had an excellent meal at Number 16, our first visit as a result of a voucher received as a gift.
Our experience was excellent from the start, warmly welcomed and invited to ask any questions about the menu. I have an allergy problem with black pepper and despite this being a difficulty they produced a version of my chosen dish sans black pepper. We will certainly be back.

The staff here were very friendly. We were told they were giving us a better table and we were happy to wait a few minutes for that to be cleared. The atmosphere was lovely - all wood and subtle lighting creating a beautifully cosy but classy vibe.
Once seated, we were given good advice on the wine by our server "oh, this one is definitely my favourite" and placed our orders.
A while later we were served some bread rolls which were not entirely fresh anymore. Having finished those, we chatted - and waited. A long while after we'd placed our orders, the starters finally arrived.
We had the scallop and the lamb sweetbreads. The sweetbreads were delicious, but the caramelised onions they were served with were so salty they were barely edible. The scallop was not bad, although slightly overcooked, but well flavoured.
We then faced another long wait for the mains. At some point our server mumbled something along the lines of an apology for the wait, but all in all it took very long for us to get our food.
For mains, we had chosen the oxtail, which was deliciously cooked, but lacked some kind of sauce to tie it together with the vegetables; and the monkfish tail, which was very good (although again, oversalted).
By the time we were deciding on dessert, we were quite full, despite the small-to-medium portion sizes (probably a result of the long wait). We shared the Chocolate and Blood Orange Pave, which turned out to be a large cylinder of very dense chocolate mousse filled with blood orange sauce. It was very tasty, but incredibly rich and filling - this would have been too much for just one of us!
On the whole, we had a lovely evening, the food was quite good, and the atmosphere had been excellent.

Wonderful little niche restaurant with Scottish inspired gourmet cooking at reasonable prices in the cute Finneston neighborhood. Friendly staff, but plan to arrive on time as there is little waiting space and they plan to serve customers exactly at their reserved times.

This restaurant never fails to amaze me. The food produced from what must be the smallest kitchen in the business is incredible. Once again my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed an exquisite lunch, served by two young and pleasant servers, both very knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Well done again No.16 !
We shall return.😊

This was a spur of the moment booking the night before, for the remaining pre-theatre table on a Friday night. This was our second time visiting number 16.

The synopsis: a wonderful dinner in every way. Friendly staff, bubbly atmosphere, attractive menu, top cooking and a decent wine list. I even wandered down to the kitchen to wax lyrical to the chef about the sweetbreads.

These guys are setting the benchmark for dining on Byres Road (and beyond)

One of the best restaurants in Glasgow -- fantastic service, atmosphere, and food. Every course was impeccable, as was the recommended wine. Perfect for a special occasion, or just a nice night out with friends.

The restaurant is quite small but has a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent. My starter of artichoke and thyme soup tasted nice but it was at best lukewarm although small sections were boiling hot-it had obviously been inadequately heated through in a microwave. The main course of duck was again very tasty but the portion of duck was paltry. Overall not a great experience.

Although the food here was delicious, the waiter that served us was quite arrogant which spoiled the evening a bit. This has put me off either recommending this restaurant to friends or coming back here myself.

Number 16 was a good choice for meeting up with old friends visiting Glasgow. Typical friendly west end bistro with excellent often locally sourced food. Despite the strict "table back in 2 hours" policy on the booking site, on a Monday there was no pressure to reclaim our table at 9.30 so we had an enjoyably leisurely meal and time to indulge in the good desserts.

Having not eaten here for some time we decided to give it another try. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly.
The chicken liver parfait with granola was delicious as were the other starters that my wife and friends had. Both the monkfish and halibut main courses were superb and the heritage potato side to die for! Needless to say, the puddings did not let the side down with the deconstructed white chocolate and peanut cheesecake just hitting the spot and the blood orange pave quite magnificent.
We’ll definitely be back sooner than later.
