Service was super sloppy and disorganised, getting the same info multiple times and not following up on things when asked upon. Food was hit and miss, some stuff wad cooked perfectly and some was sub par, overall a good night but could have been way better if service was just average
Food was fantastic we all had steaks and were cooked perfectly for us all
Peter made us all feel so welcome and was so friendly and helpful
Will return again
Look forward to seeing Peter again
Thanks for a great night
Bought this deal on itison also bought for friends ,the place is lovely, the waitress Irish girl was lovely.
The problem was we had a very long wait for the food the starter was ok but the main course was not warm enough and my friend ordered the fish dish and it must have been the smallest fish on a dish we have ever seen my friend pointed this out to the waitress (not the Irish girl she was lovely) the other girl just looked and shrugged us off. By the time the food came we were so hungry no one wanted to say about the food not hot because god knows how long we would have had to wait again.
I would visit again but not for food just drinks.
Despite pre-ordering prosecco we were served with a warm bottle which really disappointed
Lively atmosphere, good food choices, great selection of drinks, DJ was on at the bar area, overall very efficient staff and we will defo return
Had a beautiful meal on the 2 course meal and bottle of wine deal which was a Christmas present.
I had pan fried chicken on pea and ham risotto which was lovely and the haggis, neeps and tatties which was lovely also although I found the sauce a bit too strong taste of mustard. My husband had the chicken wings which he enjoyed but would have been too spicy for me. He also had the pasta and meatballs both large portions. However I would suggest not to be seated at the far right hand side upstairs as it was dark and difficult to read the menu! Suggest a light of some sort on the table. This however was the only downside.
Lovely meal in a stunning interior. Food excellent and will definitely come back!
Food was very good, small portions and service was a bit slow
Great food, good service. Everything except the vegan main was lovely. As a vegetarian would rather have a vegetarian meal than vegan.
Very quiet - too few customers for atmosphere.
Nice welcome on entering, quickly served with excellent food. It was a Tuesday evening so was reasonably quiet. Loria the Italian waitress was excellent.
Food and service really good Only comment I would make is that all the diners were in one section of bar area. Tables were very close together Other area was empty.
Pleasant, helpful staff. Good food. Pleasant surroundings. Most enjoyable.
FAB FOOD AND GREAT STAFF, COULD NOT HAVE MADE US MORE WELCOME
PETE FROM SUNNY GOVAN AND AUSSIE CLAIRE... DEFFO WILL BE BACK
Great decor and atmosphere. Peter and all the staff were excellent. Enjoyable experience. ..will be back.
Food was Ok, Luke warm but certainly edible. Restaurant was very empty and when we ordered a dessert we were advised they needed the table back?
Wasn’t aware this was a small print as wasn’t advised of this when we arrived. Might have been small print somewhere when I booked on open table.
There is a nice way and a crude way to get this across to customers. Our experience was the crude one and for one I would never come back.
It was 1430 in the afternoon and about a quarter of the tables if you’re luck had people at them. Very frustrating and off putting.
Lovely venue for a Friday night dinner. Great atmosphere with music and a great buzz. We asked for the market menu as I had seen it on opentable, however we were not offered it. Food was delicious, although portions were very small in my opinion. The menu is very good value for 2 courses and glass of wine, however I would expect the meals to be a bit bigger. We ordered side dishes to go with it which was fine, again they were very small.
Overall a great meal, only comments would be the portion sizes which may well be smaller as it was part of the market menu.
Had such a fabulous evening catch up with a friend In Citation ! The delicious food, excellent service and enjoyable atmosphere made our catch up that more special... Thankyou to all the staff 👍🏼
i deliberately booked for 4.30, so we could eat in the upstairs restaurant. we arrived to find it was closed.
surely an email could be sent letting me know and then we both could have eaten earlier. one male member of staff was very unhelpful re the situation. he only showed us to a table which had a heater blasting very hot air which i could not tolerate. not a lot of choice on the menu which was not helped that one course had sold out. on such a small menu, 2 courses of fish is 1 too many. also £3.40 for a small coffee in the downstairs venue which has no ambiance and badly needs refurbished is way over the top. my friend was not impressed and will not be back
We had a meal on sat night , the starters weren’t all that warm but the staff were busy so we didn’t like to interrupt , no one came near and asked if he needed anything but tbh we had a bottle of Prosecco with the meal so maybe they thought we were fine , the place is gorgeous , we had a voucher so I cannot comment on the prices but all in all it was nice , don’t think I’ll be returning for food but I’ll be back for a drink downstairs as it was lovely .
Excellent service and food very nice, loved the ambience of this building
Everything was great. The only reason I marked it down was the level of the music from downstairs. It was good music for a Friday night, Lizzo, Beyoncé, Pharrel etcl but too loud in the restaurant. Food lovely, we don’t drink Prosecco so swapping for red wine wasn’t an issue and the waiter was wonderful.
Lovely food staff very helpful
Wnjited our visit looking forward to go back
Excellent offer purchased for 2courses for two people with a bottle of house wine. Very good service even though the restaurant was quite busy and the presentation of the dishes excellent and food was great. Will definitely return again.
Visited for lunch on a quiet Wednesday afternoon and opted for the Market Menu which was 2 courses including a small glass of wine for £14.95. Enjoyed a tasty starter of chicken liver parfait followed by the Dish of the Day which was delicious haddock on a bed of ratatouille. Friendly and efficient service by the staff and I will definitely be recommending Citation to friends.
Was nice but starter of parfait the oatcakes were size of 50p piece not much to it. I had steak and I would say it was nice but for the money i wouldn’t say i would rush back.
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.
Very busy , but food,wine, service all great. We will definitely 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.!
Excellent place,atmosphere,service &of course food. Will be re-booking very soon.
Food was fab, service was good, wine was ok, i would recommend
This is such a lovely convivial restaurant so well planed & food & service with excellent staff
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.
Had a gift voucher very enjoyable and would definitely come back 👍
We enjoyed a pre- theatre meal, which was good value and very tasty. It was great to get free-range chicken, without having to ask about provenance. It's a beautiful building too and handy for the city centre
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.
So good, going back in a couple of weeks 👍
My second time there, can’t fault it, 10/10
Good food and service, excellent value for money as we were on an ITISON deal
Service was great.
Food was lovely
Only down side was we were in bar not restaurant
