What a great find! Only small but absolutely wonderful. The food was delicious especially the scallops and the deep fried potatoes. I will be returning to Glasgow and I will definitely return to number 16.

We both had the set lunch menue. I had 2 courses my wife 3. We shared the desert.

Before the meal the restaurant brough a mouse bouch of bread and oil/vinegar. This was also exception with home made flavoured oil and balsamic vinegar.

All three courses were perfection with interesting and home made sources and additional touches. We bought 2 sides, a potatoe side and a cauliflower side. Again these were interesting and good.

Overall we thought the meal was very good value for money with good service and a nice friendly ambience.

For me the food was as good as I have had anywhere without limit to the budget.

Never had a bad meal in our favourite restaurant.

I never caught the females name that served us however she was fantastic.

The happy birthday message for my fiancée was a lovely touch too.

Cant wait to go back.

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.

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.

After unsuccessfully trying to visit on 2 earlier occasions that were cancelled by Covid-19 restrictions, we finally managed to get to visit in June 2021 for a delayed wedding anniversary meal and were not disappointed. This was our first visit, but it will not be our last.

The menu had a great selection on it. We chose to share a starter of Burrata with asparagus, fresh peas and pine nuts. It was brilliant with fresh pea and asparagus flavours. We both chose the Halibut as a main which came with yellow courgette & razor clams. We also took a side of broccoli. The quality of cooking was exceptional and all the flavours worked really well. To finish we had the George Mellis Cheese and biscuit selection which was superb.

All the staff, even the new ones under training from Suzanne, were excellent and helped make our visit a very enjoyable one. Just need to decide when to go next.

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.
