Service was great from a very smiley and genuine waitress. She served every table on her own with food and drink and nice to every person - Credit to your establishment! Food was excellent too, keep up the good work guys!

Some nice elements to our dishes, but inconsistent - over/under-cooking a problem.
Restaurant was full, maybe too full.
Very pleasant wait staff.

Pigeon was under-seasoned, and/or underwhelming.
Service could have been better.
Awful, overpriced beer selection
Weird disgusting marshmallow to finish
Beef, carrots and fried potato sides all perfect.
Cramped, uncomfortable seating

Number Sixteen is absolutely amazing! The service was impeccable, the staff were helpful and kind, the atmosphere is charming and comfortable and the food is outstanding! I am so happy that I made the smart decision to take my friends here for their wedding gift and a wonderful evening in the West End. The food was out of this world - the best cured Scottish salmon of my life! Truly a treasure, thank you so much! I will be back the next time I’m in Glasgow.

We chose to eat at Number 16 for a birthday celebration because we liked the choice on the set lunch menu and thought the price point was just right. This is a charming little restaurant with just a few tables which gives it a relaxed atmosphere. We were welcomed by an absolutely lovely young woman who was friendly, professional and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. We all loved everything we chose, the particular favourites being the leek and spinach soup, the perfectly cooked hake and the passion fruit and coconut torte. The kitchen team did a great job!

First visit and won’t be our last ... marvellous food, prepared and served perfectly, with a decent enough choice! Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and made our party feel great! Only slight niggle is the size of the tiny bathroom. Our bigger rugby guy had difficulty turning around! Would definitely recommend and will be back soon.

Chose this place after reading about it in the good food guide and it didn’t disappoint. Fabulous food and great service from friendly staff in this pretty neighbourhood restaurant that I would highly recommend. The food was interesting and very tasty and the friendliness of both our waitress and the owner who I spoke to as we left reminded me why I love independent restaurants and why they are far superior to chain places. Give this place a try and I think you will love it too. I know I will be heading back next time I visit Glasgow. Top tip - make sure to leave room for the homemade chocolate at the end of the meal - order them regardless of if you are having a coffee or tea!

Beautifully presented. Not intimidating portion sizes, which suits me perfectly, but visitors of a larger appetite may be a bit underwhelmed. Those special potatoes with the lamb were amazing. Actually, I could’ve had an extra helping of those. Very nice personable service, not in your face but attentive. We’re visitors to Glasgow, doing a recce for university applications. I hope my daughter gets accepted so we can come again...

Genuinely nice place to meet up with friends or family and enjoy excellent food and service. It's small, friendly and boy do they know something about how to awaken a complacent pallet! Some very creative and tasty touches to their food that will leave you wanting to return.

Number sixteen never fails, probably my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. Food is excellent, every wee bit of every course is fantastic. The ingredients are generally fairly straightforward, no pretence or overkill, just simple and perfect.

In addition, the staff are always absolutely lovely - again, just really friendly and down-to-earth people who go out of their way to ensure you have an excellent time.

This is the second visit for lunch in 3 months and I’ll be back! Travelled through from the east coast and it was definitely worth the journey.

My starter of cod brandade was delicious and my main of chicken was succulent- how come my chicken never tastes like this? Freshly shelled peas served with the chicken were fabulous. The hake my friend had was yummy too. Really can’t do justice to the quality of the food - high end dining at budget price!

Service was everything you’d want - attentive and friendly but never intrusive.

The restaurant is cosy and unpretentious clearly making food the star of the show.

I really can’t recommend No 16 highly enough.

We had a three course lunch there. Starter and dessert were lovely, however our main course pork belly half of it were over cooked with dry layer of tough meat. We made a comment on it, the waitress said will tell the chef, but we didn’t hear anything back. Perhaps we were too polite and tried to finish the dish without complaint earlier. But there were chance they could make it up to us after the main course, but nothing were offered nor response from the chef. So very disappointed with the overall experience. We had much better pork belly before and we know what freshly out of oven one tastes like.

We were with friends from Washington DC and wanted to take them to a Scottish restaurant. The menu did not disappoint and nor did the quality of the food. Service was excellent and our waitress was delightful. I particularly liked the scallops and they both had the lamb which they loved.
