I'm only deducting a star because the toilets were a bit chilly . Food was amazing . I eat at a lot of quality restaurants for work and left here feeling full but not too unhealthily so. Interesting flavours reminiscent of Otolenghi , healthy options , clearly well thought through , perfectly seasoned and someone working here is definitely a 'palate'. I will be back . Im glad to find a decent , well thought through menu at a reasonable price . Well done team !

The tasting menu was very good! Extremely good value for money also. I would highly recommend. The food was lovely the cocktails were delicious and very aesthetically pleasing. The resuraunt has a lovely up-market feel but isn't fussy or pretensious and has a really nice ambience, the noise levels were good it wasnt noisy but it also wasn't so quiet you felt awkward talking. All the waitresses who served us were so lovely knew the menu and the food really well and couldnt do enough for you, would definitely return and would definitely recommend to others thank you again.

Small but perfectly pitched. Delicious food. Caters very well to non meat eaters. Could do with some carbs on the menu but not a criticism. Amazing selection of wines with the Basque Country bottle being a revelation. Staff knowledgeable and very friendly. Will be back again and again!

First time here and had a really lovely meal. Service was quick without being rushed, staff were all really friendly and the restaurant was very accommodating of a nut allergy, able to adapt dishes to give us a greater range of options. Music was a good volume to give nice atmosphere without being too loud to talk over. We were a bit too warm but that's a very minor gripe on an otherwise great visit!

Disappointing- I didn’t really like the food very much. The veggie menu was a lot of tofu… not great value for money, we were expecting something much nicer. There was plenty of food though which is a positive.

Found eighty eight by accident but what a find. The kitchen is open and the small size helps with the ambiance. The food was amazing small plates of tapas and we will return to try the rest. Brilliant staff too.

Small interesting plates with loads of interesting mixed textures and tastes - you'll need maybe three each. Mostly vegetarian - we got the impression that the non-V choices were there for the opposite reason that non-V restaurants have one vegetarian choice. The place is much smaller than I expected!

My fav go to restaurant in Glasgow especially on Monday night when they offer their tasting menu. A showcase of their creative talents which is sublime, thoughtfully created, incredibly well priced and delicious. Cosy and bijou with an intimate and easy interior you can sink into and enjoy. I even Shazam some of their music which is as cool as the guys who work there. 5*

Great ambience and very good selection of small plates. Excellent service and with some tables clearly intent on enjoying themselves noise levels were high although to be fair our waitress off her own bat moved us to a quieter table which was much appreciated. First time here in its present guise and we shall be back.

Foods great but feel like a bit of a mug paying £80 for 1 bottle of wine & 4 small plates between 2 people. We left still hungry, ended up getting a takeaway from across the road.

We had such an amazing meal at Eighty Eight. The restaurant has a wonderful welcoming and cosy atmosphere and the staff were lovely and friendly and made us comfortable. We had some of the tastiest food I have ever eaten! Every dish was unique and genuinely delicious. We especially loved the tender stem broccoli and the mushroom tagliatelle, we even ordered more of them because they were SO good. Thank you for such a special evening and we can't wait to come back.

Food was good, not spectacular - catered very well to an omnivore and a vegetarian. Was a little slow to get going and that then resulted in the end of the meal feeling very rushed. The server was clearly anxious regarding the next table but it felt pushy - she told us we only had half an hour when we had 45 minutes, told us that the next diners had arrived when actually they were 10 minutes early. For the tasting menu longer should be left between bookings so that the full experience can be enjoyed without feeling rushed. We also would have been happy to receive more plates at the same time. If we went back we both said we wouldn’t do the sharing menu again but would just choose a few plates from the menu.
The restaurant is also very small, and whilst not much can be done about that if I’d been the girl on the next table that had to sit right next to the door for the toilet I would have been a bit annoyed.

Hi Iona, We do apologise for causing you to feel rushed. The pacing and delivery of dishes depend on the guests, so this kind of situation can be avoided. In this incident, we extended your dining slot by 45 minutes on top of the original 2-hour slot to allow you to finish the last two courses. We'd love to let our guests stay longer but it is a constant battle for us to fit everyone in on time. We look forward to welcoming you back again hopefully on a less hectic day. Best, Eighty Eight
