We had an itison deal, two starters, two main meals. I had the prawn cocktail, my wife had the haggis and potato starter. followed by the chef special which was cod in a special sauce. Both of us agreed that it was the best meal we have had for a long time. Even thanked the chef.

Finding the entrance to the restaurant was a challenge. We were booked for a Sunday afternoon and immediately upon arriving at the entrance to the restaurant we were asked which menu we would be eating from today? We had no clue as there was no choice given! That would make more sense to ask! Once seated service was extremely slow, food cold and then we had to ask to see a dessert menu. Won’t be returning, very disappointed.

We were given a great table by the window with lots of room for three. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The lunch menu at just less than £15 offered enough choice and included wine. We started with bread which came hot and tasted delicious. The prawn cocktail and Caesar salad starters were excellent and followed by mains of chicken and salmon which were lovely. My two friends who were visiting for the first time loved it.

We had the T-bone and sirloin steak as a treat as it was my other half’s birthday. The steaks were beautifully cooked the chips were amazing The staff were lovely, very helpful and attentive without being annoying. The atmosphere and ambience was lovely. Only down side for us was there was a large table of guys in, were a bit loud but seemed to be having a great time. Didn’t put us off going back which is a definite.

Sad to say I doubt I will return. Been going to the grill room at 29 for quite a number of years now and I have noticed gradually the service and food has declined. We were shown to our table but waited a further 35 minutes to be asked if we would like a drink an hour after being seated we received our bread loaf. We never received our main course for an hour an half from being sested, the service was truly shocking. We did mention this to the waiter but it never got any better. The noise level in the restaurant is extremely loud so it is difficult to hear the company your with so little conversation can be had. The food was good we had no complaints however the portion sizes of the side orders ie veg, chips, salad are far from generous we were lucky to share it around 3 people. They have lost their touch and unsure why, there are plenty of other great steak restaurants in Glasgow that offer more for your money and definitely a better service for sure and with the ability to speak to each other.

I was given a voucher for The Grill Room at the Square as a birthday gift. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. It’s not somewhere I’d been before but I would now consider going back. The service was good. Staff were all pleasant and very competent st their job. The menu was fairly varied and the food was very nice.

First time here and we would return.. food was lovely although expected steak to be a bit larger... however, by time we had finished it was enough. Wee reminder to advise soups of the day - has to ask. Minor point really - overall we enjoyed our evening and would recommend

Purchased a deal on line for 2 courses and 2 glasses of proseco for £29. When we arrived and saw the menu we noticed that the main course didn’t include vegetables/ potatoes/chips. You had to pay for them separately. I had breast of chicken and bed of mushy peas. Very misleading deal... lovely place and friendly staff. Suppose you get what you pay for

We are big fans of Grill Room. We visited on a Sunday. They do a mean Sunday lunch. They have two courses for two people for £29 offer open at the moment which is a steal

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.
