Had to send 1 steak back as it was medium to well rather than medium rare. Not a big issue, however it was clear the Chef wasn't happy with this and made a scene of the return for all to see with his vile attitude towards the server as if we and the server didn't know what we were talking about. The serving counter is open for all to see and this was clear for everyone to witness in the dining room, disgusting attitude and behaviour by the Chef. It was obvious the steak wasn't cooked correctly when compared to the others at the table. Not what you expect in this type of establishment, and certainly not something we ever experienced under the previous management. Will not be back!

This is the 4th time dining here and I have been delighted every time!
The service was outstanding, from being greeted with a smile, giving you time to order and yet being attentive at the same time. Have to help with any requests, e.g gluten free options and celebrations!
The waiting staff serve the drinks holding the glasses at the bottom of the glass which is rare in many places.
The atmosphere was great but could have slightly darker lighting in the evening.
The food was delicious. A delight to my tastebuds! I recommend the Garden pea risotto and sharing monkfish platter. Although everything is tasty. They the signature cocktail. It is special!
Thank you. I am looking forward to coming back.

This place is comfortably the most beautiful bar and restaurant in Glasgow. Just stunning and with the best service, the best cocktails and the best burgers in town.

It's very, very expensive but if you're looking to splash out on something swanky this is the place to go.

I arrived first, my waitress knew it was a birthday celebration, couldn’t have been more attentive and brought us a lovely plate of chocolates and tablet to acknowledge our celebration.

We were a party of 6 celebrating 3 birthdays, the service was very good, the food was mixed, the buratta starter which 2 people had was too vinegary, not that pleasant, the lamb starter was also not good it was fatty.
The ambiance was good, however the restaurant was cold due to the air conditioning blasting in the corner where we were sitting, we asked half a dozen times to have it switched off or turned down.
We enjoyed our night, the staff really looked after us, the cocktails were superb, food needs some tweaking, our bill was about £360.00 so we did expect really good food.

Good food in beautiful surroundings. Drinks a bit slow. Husband ordered a beer and they brought a cocktail instead; not a problem, mistakes happen, and the manager who brought it was apologetic, but had to wait 10 minutes and ask again before we got the beer. The cocktail was on our bill also. Hopefully just customer service teething problems.

Having recently experienced the new restaurant for a client lunch earlier this week we have felt it necessary to leave this feedback. This is meant to be constructive and hope that you take it as such. The decor and ambience of the restaurant is superb. This is exactly how we would expect the venue to be and the recent refurbishment is perfect. However, turning to the food, it is not a good sign when ordering your meal that the waiting staff advise that you will need a side dish. If this is the case, then that should indicate that the portion size of the meal is inadequate. The service is also sadly lacking. It should not take almost two hours to have a main course and coffee. The restaurant is ideally situated for the business lunch market for client entertaining, however, the lack of speed of service, staggered delivery coffees ie party of four, two receive their coffee, the further two coffees delivered to the table c. 10 mins later, is simply not acceptable. We would dearly love to use the restaurant more often for client entertaining, but the lack of attention to speed of service is letting you down.

Really disappointed. The hotel has had some changes made which don't compliment the character of the building. We had to wait when we arrived to be greeted, 2 couples were in front of us so a poor start. Restaurant wasn't busy, took an age to ask us if we wanted to order drinks, then didn't bring the drinks for a long time, waiter rather than bringing us our drinks was looking to take our food order. Starters were very average (lamb and goats cheese, although the scallop cerviche was the better of the 2). My main meal a steak cooked medium rare was burnt on the surface and probably more towards rare than medium rare. The meat was poorly seasoned and poorly cooked in my opinion. My partners pork was decidedly average. I think they've really missed the mark with the refurbishment, trying to be quirky and cool which again doesn't compliment the grandeur of the building. Ambience is poor as the sound system hasn't taken into consideration the acoustics of the room, so the sound is very unnatural. Music choice was also terrible. Really disappointed as we previously loved eating at the Blythswood. Service disappointing especially given how quiet the restaurant was.
