My wife and I had a very pleasant meal at No 16 earlier this week. We had already eaten there last May and had enjoyed the experience so much that we decided to return once more. Again, we were not disappointed. The food was of the best and very imaginative. Service and atmosphere were first class and just right for that special occasion. Portions were perfect and quite generous for fine dining. All in all it was a wonderful experience.....can't wait to go back !

First time at No 16 and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We had a lovely table and the lady who served us (manger?) was excellent . The food was very good , both opting for fish as our mains, beautifully cooked. After starters and mains too full for desert so opted for coffee and a wee malt whisky. Will be back

Easily one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The evening was faultless and so tasty.

If we lived nearer we would visit a lot more often.

This is our third time and every one has been memorable. The staff are always very attentive but not pushy, with good knowledge of the food and drinks. The food is always top class, well cooked and exceptional ingredients. We were in for our five year anniversary and it was wonderful - we’ll definitely be back!

I've been to No. 16 a few times over the years and the quality has never dropped. The food is always outstanding, probably the best in Glasgow, the welcome warm and friendly and the service faultless.

The food on the pre set lunch menu was delicious.
The only downside was I was told they don’t do cocktails when I asked for an old fashioned so I just stuck to water till we left

We were seated on the first floor. I liked the ambiance and the decoration of the place. Service was very good and the bill was not expensive for what we have ordered.

We had our annual Family Christmas Night Out on Saturday in Number 16 and it was a great success. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the overall service was great. We have eaten in Number 16 a few times and the food is always excellent. There was a good choice and it was beautifully cooked. We would definitely recommend it.

A regular customer. Last visit was a bit disappointing. The pork belly had too much greasy fat. The desert (quince & apple crumble) was a failure as the sharp taste of quince didn’t work with the rest of ingredients.

Food amazing.
Service let the whole evening down. They were busy but let customers know this when they arrive. The nibbles and wine took 25mins to arrive and then less than 5 mins later the starters were put down.
Prices are at the higher end and would be acceptable if the service equals the high level of the kitchen.

Number 16 is an excellent restaurant. The staff know their stuff and are lovely. Food is always tremendous. Brilliant value for money. Great place for a special night, or just a really amazing laid back dinner. Small, cosy place with the nicest crockery. Have been many times and would highly recommend.

Having been before, and loved it, I looked forward to going back to celebrate my sons graduation. The service was impeccable but the menu wasn't as interesting as it had been previously. I actually struggled to pick an entree. When our food arrived we were both left a little flat by its lack of flavour. Maybe I had been completely spoiled by my previous experience. When it came to choosing a dessert there was nothing of note and so I had coffee and asked for a Glayva liqueur to accompany it. Unfortunately, they didn't have it.

Outstanding, as always. We come to number 16 for every special occasion, and they certainly never fail to deliver. The service, and greeting on arrival are always warm & friendly. The selection of wines are delicious and the food is spectacular.

Lovely small Restaurant at the bottom of Byres road . The food was first class , the staff were all on the ball and very helpful regarding the Menu, my wife had the Duck breast for starters, which she loved. I had the Cured Scottish Salmon which was fantastic . My wife had the Haunch of Venison which she advised was a wee bit chewy but still nice, I had the Braised Pork Belly and again first class really tasty . I was the only one to have a desert and I went for the Carrot Cake which was disappointing I felt that the supposed Carrot cake was a cross between Carrot cake and Gingerbread and never really tasted like any of them .
That said overall it was a lovely meal , the Bill was reasonable, and we would return .
