I have used Citation a lot. The service lets it down. We asked three different people for water which was served in a small
Glass which meant we had to keep masking. Presumably it is deliberate to give a jug so they sell chargeable drinks. Portion sizes are a little
Small so we were still hungry. Love the actual
Surroundings but on each visit the service has deteriorated so won’t be back.

Lovely place, plenty room between tables. Service great, excellent choices on menu. Enjoyed our food, wine was lovely. Had never been before, will definitely be back again soon. Value for money. Music maybe a little too loud. Well done everyone.!

Visited on a Friday night with voucher given as Xmas present. Busy night and apart from waiting a little while to get our order taken it was a very good experience. Food and wine were very good and the staff friendly and attentive.

Excellent food. My pasta dish was better than some that I've also enjoyed in "Italian" restaurants recently.

Been before and loved the restaurant but having an itison voucher for the 2 courses and a bottle of wine which was very disappointing. The options on the menu were very limited. Had surf and turf which was an extra £6.50 for only 3 prawns on the steak. The steak was very small and poor quality meat and it has put me and my partner off returning to the restaurant. This offer should entice people to come back but unfortunately it has done the opposite and I would no longer recommend the restaurant to friends.

I have eaten at citation several times and in general the food has been good however, on this occasion the menu was limited and although the presentation was good the portion sizes were tiny. The service was poor after we were finished our mains we were not offered dessert or coffee and after sitting for sone time we paid the bill at the bar and left.

Don't think we will be back any time soon.

Food was great but limited choice with 2 turkey items, and supplement charges.
Disappointing that additional charge for vegetables or potatoes.

Service was pleasant but quite erratic.
Waited 15mins for dessert menu and eventually had to go and ask again.

Also bill was incorrect which when only 2 of us on a set menu was disappointing.

Atmosphere was too loud, not helped by the music. Difficulty talking across table for 2!

Wouldnt recommend although food was nice.

Disappointing. Food was ok but not anything special and served extremely quickly like a fast food restaurant. Service very lacklustre. No niceties like asking if you were enjoying your meal for instance. Had to try to catch attention to ask for the bill then waited ages trying to get any attention to pay it.

Steak was cooked to perfection, house red wine was very nice. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Very nice ambience in the restaurant.

Very disappointing. Caesar salad had no bacon in it and was not nice at all, expresso coffees at the end were cold, a £3.50 supplement on the market menu for basic cheese and biscuits was terrible. The chairs and the wine lists were shabby and stained. We have had many dining experiences in Glasgow and this was the worst so far. Staff and service were excellent though.
