Excellent quality food with lovely staff. Only one small criticism- tables are very close to each other. Having said that, I can definitely recommend and plan to go back

Last minute booking made without much research, however couldn’t have made a better choice. Food and wine amongst the best we’ve had lately, and for it to be in a small neighbourhood restaurant is fantastic. We effectively stumbled across this little gem but will definitely be back.

I couldn't fault any aspect of our experience in Number 16. The food was pricey but you could see and taste the amount of work that had gone into each dish. I'll definitely be back.

Slightly unattractive outside appearance and low key interior BUT really appealing menu
Every dish was something we wanted to eat & can’t wait to go back
Superb flavours and quality of ingredients was top notch
A real delight & suprise after outside appearance

Amazing food. Amazing service. Amazing wine. More expensive than your average restaurant but well worth it. We were given vouchers for our engagement and really couldn’t fault anything about our experience. We were sat upstairs and had a large table for just the 2 of us. Will definitely be back.

Another excellent meal at Number 16 - we managed to get a last minute booking on a Wednesday and enjoyed 2 courses and wine. Staff were lovely and knowledgable about the food and wine (thanks for the tips on making my own parmesan oil!) and the food was delicious as usual. Not our first visit and won't be the last!

Absolutely loved my meal and so did my partner. We were hard pushed to pick a favourite between the pigeon, venison and pork belly but the pork cheek maybe just pipped them to the post. The food was to die for. Deserts were the perfect end to the meal. We will definitely be back

I’m glad we went to Number 16 for my son birthday, service was first class, amazing food, I thought we were eating food cooked by TV MasterChef, foods are well present and delicious from start to finish. The only down side is the rolls is not warm/hot - sorry 😉😉 thank you 😊

I highly recommend this small restaurant in Byres Road. The food and service was excellent. Beautifully cooked food at very reasonable prices. The house red was outstanding. I will definitely be returning on my next visit to Glasgow.

Food was good but the portions were the poorest I have seen for a long time.
I eat out regularly in Glasgow and London and I have to say this is the only restaurant I have left feeling hungry.
For that reason I would not recommend you as it is just not value for money

I first dined at Number 16 four years ago and have been back several times when visiting Glasgow. I am delighted that the overall experience is still of the same high standard. Excellent lunch today. Food beautifully cooked and excellent presentation as always. Special mention to our lovely server too. Just the perfect amount of attentiveness. Ambience as relaxed and cosy as ever even on a quiet Monday afternoon. Im already looking forward to my next visit.
