Terrible food experience, 5 people, 5 different choices and all terrible, especially the beef choices, and on the top of that everything was cold and dry. The waiter was terrible, like she was running away from tables instead of attending them.

serious servise issues, no hostsoperating, so impossible to find your table. Had to actually go around the retaurant to look for a waiter.
Food is good, but a portion of salmon is tiny for 22 pounds.

V limited menu for lunch plus a waitor preferred not to be seen, means a mediocre experience... The sweet potato fries were good though.

Food was good but the restaurant had no record of our booking and we were seated in the terrace next to an extremely loud speaker. Despite requesting that the noise level be turned down, there seemed to be little change. Overall a disappointing experience and not one we would repeat.

A little over priced for food they serve. You are paying for the atmosphere and location. Would consider going for live music and drinks rather then food next time.

Although the service was faultless it was probably the only thing that was. I have dined at the restaurant several times over the years, but was disappointed to return to find a somewhat restricted menu if you did not eat beef. Further, my fish dish was unpalatable due to being too salty, and the homemade ice cream was more mousse like than ice cream.
I found the entire experience rather disappointing and not up to the standard I remember Boisdale being.

Table of 3, we ordered the scallops, squid and bisque. The bisque really stood out. Wonderfully intense flavour and texture.

We all ended up having burgers for mains. The quality of the meat was compatible to a supermarket and the truffle flavour I was so looking forward to was absent. I’ve had better at GBK for a fraction of the cost. Chips were average too.

They do offer a good cheese selection and their wines are really good too.

Unfortunately, this was a highly overpriced experience for what it is. £250 for 3 people seems excessive. Average service.

Excellent service! It was a little quiet when we arrived at 7pm but got busier and with that the atmosphere improved. Amazing truffle burgers but I’d give the olives a miss (came in a strange pickled marinade with gerkins)

We booked for a Bank Holiday, when we arrived it wasn't open. Had to find somewhere else to eat.

Booked the restaurant for lunch on Bank Holiday Monday, travelling over 100 miles to meet up with friends, only to find the reataurant closed. No information given out prior to our arrival. It was still showing availability later that lunchtime after we had finished rattling the locked doors!

This was a business lunch but would not go back regardless
The decor was dated and the menu was pretty standard ie you could order the same in a pub. As mentioned there nothing special/different when the ordered food arrived!!!
However, the bill was double the price of a pub plus a service charge?
I will not be entertaining here again.

I booked a table on open table, it was confirmed. However when we got to the restaurant, they didn't have my booking, they seated us in an area which was a walk way, it was not as advertised. We ordered two course meal, simple dishes and waited a very long time (35 minutes). The waitress got our orders wrong, most likely because she couldn't speak English or didn't understand us. My colleague sent her meal back because it was wrong and despite the waitress saying it would take 2 minutes, it took 15+ minutes. Everyone else had finished eating. The waitress was useless.

Although the food was excellent it is rather pricey and the dining area on the first floor is a bit underwhelming.
