The family behind Glasgow’s much-loved restaurant, Urban Bar & Brasserie have rebranded the iconic hotspot; bringing a brand new restaurant and bar to Glasgow’s city centre... Ralph & Finns. 

​Ralph & Finns, an elegant and contemporary bar-restaurant serving classic dishes and fine cocktails with a twist. Using the best of Scotland’s local produce, head chef John-Paul Lappin combines excellent ingredients with international flavour, curating a menu of vibrant and bold dishes.


 The statement late-night venue offers cocktails with character around a striking 22-seater marble bar. Guests are welcomed to enjoy their favourite dram in the Whisky Room, relax over lunch or dinner in The Garden Room or enjoy a more private dining experience in Ralph & Finn’s Boardroom.

First time at RF. curried cauliflower was nice and the goats cheese starter, although hubby was served a fillet when asked for a sirloin. Fillet was delicious and was happy to pay for this. I had butternut sole which was light and tasty, Little bit higher in price from other places but worth.

When our meals were put on the table were were not asked if we would like any sauce or vinegar they were just put down and server walked away - we then had to get out of our seat again to ask for some ketchup for my daughters burger. We then had to get out of our seat to go ask for the bill too. Nice surroundings but service could be so much better and at £67 for 2 mains a soft drink & 1 glass of white wine I would expect better service. Staff were pleasant and helpful when asked but just not attentive enough.

The food was good quality, very tasty , served hot and on time. The chicken kiev with noodles was fresh and delicious. The wine selection was good. The service was excellent. We all loved the decor and as it was a Wednesday evening the bar and restaurant was not overly busy but we liked that it wasn't too packed or noisy. However, if if it was busy, we were impressed that there was a sensible amount of space between the tables so that you don't feel like you are listening into the next table's conversation. We will definitely go back if these levels of service and quality are sustained.

So, once again it came up trumps again. My colleague was very impressed with everything and he is not someone who give praise freely. Therefore, thanks again for not letting me down!

As someone who cannot eat butter, mayo or cream, I always like to see a quality battered fish with chips and peas on the menu. This is often my go to when there's not alot for my personal preference. That said, I did manage to choose the salmon which was lovely, and most other people won't be disappointed.
