Overall 2food 1service 4ambience 2

We recently got married and having received an Itison voucher as a gift, decided to book for dinner on our one month anniversary.
On our arrival at the main reception of 29, the staff on the desk could barely be bothered to break off from their conversation to greet us.
We then had a pre dinner drink in the bar area beside the Grill Room. Barman was lovely and very knowledgeable, recommending different gins to us.
Staff in the restaurant were all pleasant and efficient however, the general condition of the dining area was very poor. Our booth by the window was in a great position, overlooking Royal Exchange Square but the seating was badly torn and covered in crumbs from the previous diners. The ladies toilets were a disgrace....only one of the two cubicles able to be used as the door wouldn’t close on one and just a general shabby feel to them.
Food was average, our starters were fairly bland (goats cheese tart & chicken/bacon rillettes). We paid supplements to have the sirloin steaks which were ok but served with a shrivelled piece of mushroom and tomato and totally lacking in presentation. The thick cut chips & Bearnaise sauce were good but the house salad was just watery, chopped iceberg lettuce and two pieces of tomato.
Overall, a disappointing experience. We have both eaten here in the past but feel the standard has really declined over the years and are unlikely to return when there are so many better dining options available in the city.

As always, this venue never fails to meet our expectations with their friendliness and professionalism.
The food is always excellent and the ambience is warm and welcoming.
I just noticed, a few days after we had dined, that the deal I had purchased was not available on Saturdays.
There was no thought of embarrassing me by the management, by pointing out my mistake.
Instead they just presented me with the menu for that deal and attended to us with ultimate professionalism.
Well done Grill Room, I applaud you.

This was a lovely restaurant with an “exclusive” feel to it. Somewhat difficult to find, with the awning entrance slightly hidden. Once at the entrance we were immediately asked if we had a booking, after verification we were sent upstairs and were asked for booking verification a second time. Arriving finally at the restaurant, we were seated at a nice table in the corner for our party of 5. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Being American we are used to larger proportions however we were all full at the end of the meal. For as exclusive as it felt the prices were great.

The staff were very good as was the food, although the portion was rather small. The red wine we were given as part of the 2 for £29 offer was not nice at all. We will return to the restaurant however were disappointed with this particular offer. The restaurant is very comfortable and the surroundings are well presented. The waiting staff were very helpful attentive and pleasant.

Great value on the 2 for 29 menu, although a shame that so many of the options incur an additional charge. Why not have more options that fit into this menu if you want to offer it? Tasty food and good staff.

We used itison deal 2 courses for 2 with glass Prosecco for £25. I do kind of wish the set menu would then not have dishes which have supplements and would stay within agreed price. Apart from that everything else about our visit was great and most importantly the food was amazing. I’d definitely go back

Menu absolutely of excellent quality and quite healthy. Outstanding staff and waiters for their professionalism. Cozy atmosphere and absolutely top location. Excellent value for money. If I go back to Glasgow, I will definitely go there. Only flaw: the very loud music coming from other places that you can hear on Saturday evening.

Went there Friday with my wife to celebrate 51 years of going out together. (How time flies)
We had a first class meal in the lovely grill room at 29. My wife thought the champagne was nice too. Haha. The staff on reception and in the dining room were so friendly, polite and helpful which just added to a lovely experience. We will definitely return JD

The restaurant is lovely and staff were welcoming on arrival and we were seated quickly. Service was a little slow with a wait time of around a half hour for starters and similar between the following courses. There was a mix up with desserts and they went to another table. The waitress was very apologetic about it and didn't charge for them which we absoloutely didn't expect, but appreciated the gesture. Incidentally they were worth the wait as they were delicious. We would certainly return again when we are back in Glasgow.

First let me say how much we enjoyed the food even though it is rather expensive on the A La Carte menu. Also the young waiters/ waitresses were attentive, helpful and very pleasant. My main gripe is what I would call the faded grandeur of the restaurant and the toilets. The wood on the chairs were chipped, the fabric was threadbare and in some instances burst away from the frame. I have always enjoyed going there for dinner but it is now badly needing a refurbishment. It's becoming very scruffy and not in keeping with a perceived upmarket restaurant. The ladies loos had toilets that barely flushed therefore I need go no further in describing them. They are of a poor standard now. I would recommend it as a place to go to eat if you have a voucher deal but not for a special treat due it's decorative distress.

Our waiter Robert was very helpful & friendly, the food was lovely although I did find the £25 supplement for a fillet steak a bit excessive! The steak was nice but not worth the amount I paid. Robert was very attentive to our needs & our glasses were constantly topped up.
