With delicious fresh produce served by our very own Head Chef, Sean Currie, you'll feel the energy in the way we go about things – our warm welcome, enthusiasm for what we do, and, of course, a splash of Glaswegian banter. From Cumbrae Oysters to Salmon and Lobster burgers, enjoy the best Scottish seafood and ocean inspired cocktails in Glasgow.

    When I booked a table at the Blughswood Square Hotel thought it would have been obvious that we required a meal. When we arrived, we were shown to a table that had obviously been reserved for us but was not set up for meals. The table was enormous and could’ve sat eight people. we were offered the drink which was delivered to our table. However, after 40 minutes I had to call a waitress and ask if we could have the menu. She was very nice and explained that all that was available was the bar menu with the à la caret menu, not commencing till 5 o’clock. The food was delivered about half an hour later. my order which was a salmon and prawn burger was fine. My wife ordered a Caesar salad was extremely disappointing and if she had not ordered chicken in with it, she would have had a plate of green lettuce sprinkled with some cheese and dressing.. the poorest Caesar salad I’ve ever seen in my life. We remained in the bar till about seven and the young man who served us till we left was very pleasant. I just wished I’d got his name. We Left hotel and the doorman very kindly got a us taxi. overall our experience was not as good as we expected. I do not think we’ll be back again.

    Ignored for 20 mins when arrived to eat at the bar, eventually given menus but then nobody returned to take drinks/food order for another 15 mins despite lots of staff hanging about at far end of the bar. This has happened previously and I haven’t left a review as I know how difficult hospitality is at the moment but this place is just badly managed imo and needs to change to survive. I mentioned to the doorman as we left how dreadful our experience was and he told me that he had heard that before. There are far better places to eat and drink in Glasgow, we found Dakota to be a far better experience in terms of food, service and cost.

    Lovely space and decor. Excellent service with really good quality drinks and cocktails. Nice touch to automatically provide cold water - not everywhere does and its such an easy thing to do and makes a difference. We would and will definitely return.

    Disappointed that we booked bar seats which when we arrived were not available and we had to sit at a table. Bar itself is lovely. Staff really go out of their way to be nice. Table area just doesn't have the same ambience as the bar. We didn't eat dinner just drinks. Great Champagne by the glass selection.

    Forgot to put through the children’s meal (it was her birthday). No apology, finally admitted it hadn’t been put through and she ended up eating half an hour later than everyone else and rushed. Same happened with the tea - still charged for the whole meal and generally just a little aloof with the service depending on who you get. Some of the staff are spot on eg our original meet & greeter.

    We enjoyed our drinks but the slow service wasn’t what we expected. From iasg’s point of view, if the service was more efficient, they’d have been able to make more money! The waiter was friendly though.

    It was nice and there’s nothing really wrong with the service provided at the venue. My only complaint is the prices, but that’s to be expected. A little bit more expensive than other places of a similar calibre.

    My friends and I had a lovely Sunday brunch at Isag. Food was brilliant (I ordered a seafood pancake type dish), but if I had to comment on anything, the portion sizes could be ever so slightly bigger. Cocktails were fab...best Bloody Mary I think I have ever tried! The staff were all very polite and attentive and the DJ was playing some great tunes. We'll definitely be back!

    Our reservation was messed up, they mistakenly gave away our table as we waited at the bar. Apologised, which was fine, that was as far as any compensation went. Bar staff lovely and very efficient. Table service less so. Waited a long time when we finally got our table to get any food and drink. Food delicious when it came. When we got the bill they had charged us for a £60 bottle of wine, when ours had cost £32. Quite a difference. Not much of an apology for that either from table service. Lovely place, lovely evening with friends, but disappointing in terms of executive service, rather lacking.

    All style no substance. Nice atmosphere for Sunday brunch with DJ and good service, unfortunately the food was extremely disappointing, basic brunch dishes were below the standard you would expect at any average cafe/ brunch spot in the southside or west end. Salmon kedgeree was bland with scraps of salmon and quite possible Uncle Ben’s rice. Langoustine Benedict (lobster on menu but supply issues) was sad just to look at, never mind eat - 2 mid size prawns on an £18.50 brunch dish. We wont be back.

    Opening weekend for this new restaurant. We just ate in the bar and had a large selection from the bar menu. Food was good but watch out for crab shell in the crab salad. We had to ask for napkins, sauces for the chips and to chase up some drinks. Enjoyed our night and will definitely go back
