Great to have No 16 back - been way too long.
The food was fabulous: quality produce with innovative twists obvious throughout the menu - always something new to try and enjoy.
Our server was friendly, informative and she added to the overall ambience of the evening.
No hesitation in highly recommending this dining experience.

This restaurant is an absolute wee gem of an eating place- great to see it re-opened. Staff, food etc lived up to their well deserved reputation. Dined out at a Michelin star restaurant few weeks back- No.16 is easily on a par. Keep up the good work and thanks again for a culinary dining out delight.

This was our 3rd visit. We travelled 80 miles for lunch here which says it all. Food is excellent and staff are so friendly, nothing is a bother to them. Can’t wait till we can visit again

Really tasty 3 course lunch - good value for money.
Starter and main were amazing but i was disappointed with my 'partially set' panna cotta (which was more like a custard) - BUT It still tasted really nice with the rhubarb.
Service was EXCELLENT

We had originally booked for 23 May as a birthday treat for my niece. Unfortunately because of Covid restrictions and Glasgow remaining in Level 3 we had to cancel. We were again disappointed when Level 3 continued and we had to cancel yet again. Finally got to the restaurant last Saturday. We were not disappointed. Social distancing in place. Food delicious. Great combinations of taste. Still our favourite 'special' eatery.

This restaurant made my date night fabulous... the food was exquisite. I had pork belly as my main and my goodness, the! best pork belly meal i have ever had. Big kudos to the chef. My husband and I had clean plates on all our courses. The restaurant is very cosy for the space the have and the staff is very friendlyand accomodating. Planning a girls night out to the place already.

What a wonderful restaurant this truly is. After the long lockdown and a number of weeks of me (not-so-patiently) waiting I visited yesterday afternoon and was delighted to find that it's not lost one ounce of its charm, atmosphere or culinary standards. The food was sublime, the staff so welcoming and friendly and I'm already looking forward to being back for a further visit in few weeks time. Would thoroughly recommend.

Number 16 is my favourite restaurant and I wanted to take my mum there as our first meal out since lockdown easing. Brilliant menu, amazing fish and seafood with gorgeous combinations and puddings to die for. I had scallops which came with seared corn, sweetcorn custard , chorizo crumb and popcord then halibut with razor clams, yellow courgette, clam sauce nduja potato side and then apple crumble tart with custard icecream for dessert. Mum had cured trout starter, same main and pannacotta with rhubard pudding. Everything cooked to perfection, served beautifully and looked like a work of art. The way the dishes are assembled and presented here always makes it feel extra special, like on Masterchef. Service was nothing short of perfect as always, we had a warm welcome and look forward to going back again, hopefully when Glasgow out of level 3 and we can splash out on some of the delicious wines available!

Our first meal out in over a year and number 16 was where we wanted to go. Delicious as ever. Just a shame no wine was allowed because of covid restrictions - next time!
Thank you.
