Menu very exciting and varied with lots for vegetarians. However, one of the veggie pasta dishes was so salty it was almost inedible. Fairly pricey too.

Waiting staff great.

Fantastic night spent with the work team. The food and drinks were thoroughly enjoyed by all, the service was friendly and professional, and the atmosphere and music were also on point.
Thanks for looking after us!

Too noisy and too dark. The table is super small and uncomfortable. Service was not good. We’re often ignored. The food was not impressive and the price was unreasonable

The food at Eighty Eighty is some of the best I have eaten in Glasgow. Really interesting flavours and brilliant vegetarian options. The service is always lovely and the new Monday night sharing plates are amazing value for money.

This is a very nice wee place - a fitting successor to the Two Fat Ladies as it used to be. Inventive and expertly prepared dishes with the seafood elements the absolute highlight. The best dish was the squid with prawn and n’duja tortellini - just sublime.

Nice restaurant but waiting time was quite too looooong. 3 people ordered 6 dishes and all dishes took more than 45 minutes to be served, not to mention there were only 2 tables seated with guests at that time…Are we expecting too much or is this a normal situation in the UK? Really confused as foreigners.
I would say food was worth waiting but it would really be better if dishes can be served simultaneously in a shorter time instead of bringing only one dish and spending another 15 minutes to prepare for the second one.

The nicest welcome from possibly the best waitress in Glasgow and truly delicious and innovative food, the seared mackerel was excellent but the squid and prawn tortellini was divine.

Booked a table here due to being a short walk from kelvingrove. Tried things I have never had before and the small plates were very filling. Staff were very friendly and I would definitely return. Thank you.

Brilliant place, fab food if you like small plates to share, amazing presentation, staff etc. Stlylish, industrial type decor. It was quiet so the only reason that ambience was only 4 stars

Really lovely meal out! Interesting and delicious plates of food - highlights were the truffle rarebit croquettes and aubergine curry. Staff were friendly and efficient, and welcoming to our wee baby. Will definitely be back - hopefully childfree! Thanks

Im sorry to say that dinner here was one of the worse dinners I ever had.
The food was just so bad. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, ever.

Enjoyable lunch of small flavoursome plates. Particularly liked the tomato and hake dishes. The only disappointing dish was the sweetcorn which basically tasted of corn and nothing else. Service was friendly and efficient.
However probably won’t go back as we left the restaurant with our clothes absolutely stinking of cooking oil. Everything had to go in the wash. I know its a small restaurant but…

Lovely service and food, a nice selection of dishes made with fresh produce. My friends and I did find that most dishes were a bit too salty to our taste but it wouldn't stop me from going back again.

Everything at 88 was absolutely outstanding! The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating, helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was great, and the food was next level! We ate the whole menu and every single dish was faultless. Each dish was brought out as it was freshly prepared and the combination of flavours was so creative. We can’t wait to go back!

What a cracking find. We loved it. No surprise to see so many great reviews. For four diners we ordered one of everything and nothing was a disappointment. Meanwhile the bass & prawn, aubergine tikka and the hummus custard with marmalade were outstanding.

Fantastic menu, so hard to choose just 2 or three dishes each! Every single mouthful was outstanding.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the service was extremely efficient.

We loved the intimate, yet buzzing ambience.

Absolutely definitely recommend you dine here!
