    Upon arrival at first glance it was a stunning venue. We then got offered table water which is a nice touch. We then ordered drinks that we waited roughly 15 minutes for. Once we ordered our starters came about 20 minutes after arrival which was good timing but we waited approximately 45 minutes for our mains after our starters got taken away which was very poor as we had somewhere to be after dinner. The food was average at best especially for the price we paid for it.

    Beautiful venue and all of staff were excellent from the girl at reception to the waiters and manager - all very attentive. The food was great and it’s nice to be able to see in the kitchen and watch the fresh pasta being made. The only slight negative I would say the prices are a little excessive. Other than that though it was great!

    Nice place, beautiful old bank building. I had looked ahead and saw the lunch menu and chose beforehand. However, on the day the menu had changed and what I’d thought I’d get wasn’t on the menu. The alternative was fine but check on the day you are going. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful staff. The chef gave us a couple of desserts to try from the new menu and spent some time chatting with us. Only one small downside was he was cooking up pickles and vegetable stock, I think, and the smell was a bit iffy!! We will definitely go back, maybe try dinner next time.

    Fantastic meal. This is my 3rd time eating here and the first time for my daughter. We both loved it and she already wants to return. I think the Zucchini fries may have played a big part in that

    Food was really tasty and good options on the menu, very slow service though between courses and waiters don't come to check if you need another drink etc unless you can find someone to ask. The 'feel' of the place is nice but a bit overpriced for what you are getting and the standard of service

    Best restaurant I have been to in a while, I felt like we were in a high end restaurant in Italy! The food was outstanding, very fresh and I loved that the kitchen was open, I feel the price reflected well on the food. The chef personally serving the food to guests tables was a nice touch and very personal. The staff were all so professional but also very friendly and welcoming. The decor was stunning, bathrooms were clean. I truly cannot fault our experience. A very special restaurant that I will be visiting regularly!

    Lovely restaurant decor is amazing but our whole day out was ruined by the smoke from the kitchen, the smoke alarm went off about 10times and when we were moved up stairs to have our coffee the smoke was so bad it made our eyes sting. They will have to get a better extraction system or we will not be back.

    Food was nice but overpriced. Service was friendly when it happened but was, at best inattentive. Fire alarm sounded several times throughout our meal due to what appeared to be a smokey kitchen....hope that was all it was since there was no attempt to evacuate and the alarm was silenced on each occasion! Won't rush back and would recommend looking at the wealth of other, better places in Glasgow for lunch!

    I had seen videos on Instagram of the restaurant & wanted to try the place . It did not disappoint from our drinks to our good everything was lovely . Staff were lovely and chatted away about the buildings history & food. I asked about a child's menu was told there wasn't one but kids portions could be made . The decor of the building is stunning Will definitely be back
