Food was very good but service was pretty average. We booked through open table app but staff didn’t seem to have any records of booking. We were sat at a table but although there were 4 of us we only had cutlery for 3 people. Food was served pretty quickly but when it came to getting the desserts for the children, again no cutlery came with that so they had to improvise and eat ice cream with a fork! As for the bill, the waiter couldn’t deal with basic arithmetics to divide it into 2 halves! Shame, as food was of a good standard but service was not up to scratch and Nobody seemed to b in charge. Won’t b back for a while , I’m afraid !

SHOCKING!

I had to award one star to get to this point, I actually never experienced the restaurant as they claimed they hadn’t received my booking via this app despite acknowledging that it had been made, so I don’t actually award them any stars!

They offered us a minimum half hour wait for a table and no apology!

We went to Cafe Andaluz next door and spent our £150 there, they were very nice and very accommodating, more than could be said for the restaurant we’d actually booked!

Cafe Andaluz rescued our son’s 15th birthday meal, a massive thanks to them.

Not a great experience of either Opentable or ZIzzi’s Glasgow West end.

Food was lovely but they brought out the main meal when we still had our starter on the table. Place wasn’t busy and we were in early so not sure of the rush.

Booked this for my girlfriends birthday. When we arrived they had no record of our booking although it has already been confirmed by email. The guy explained this, offered no apology and said he had a spare couple seats at the door. My seat was the window sill and it was freezing cold. They served my girlfiends food a good few mintues before mine arrived and because of our location i had to go to the bar to order drinks and desert. Disappointing overall.

Arrived for our booking at 7.45 and didn't get our mains until ten o clock at night. The food was over cooked. Disappointing to say the least.

Made a last minute booking. The food is what you would expect from an Italian Chain restaurant with thin crust pizzas being a standout, but what made the difference this trip was the exceptional service we had. Staff were friendly and helpful, a wee bit chatty about the menu in a good way. While we had a good table position, my only gripe was an extremely boisterous dining group a couple of tables away, who clearly had had one too many. I would recommend this place for dinner with friends but not necessarily if you are on a romantic date.

Zizzi might be hidden down a little street, but it is well worth hunting this restaurant down.

Our group of seven had a great evening at Zizzi's. The artwork on the walls, apparently done by art students from the nearby Glasgow School of Art, definitely adds that something extra (even in the toilets!). Service was perhaps a little slow, but we had time to chat and enjoy catching up. Staff were cheerful, friendly and responsive. We could see the chefs busy making pizza and putting them into the huge oven. We all enjoyed our food, and the chocolate and banana calzone with gelato was something special! Not a venue for a quiet meal out, as the place was buzzing, but that suited our group.

Chose Zizzi West End for a post cinema meal with family, looking for good, quickly served food and a chance to chat about the film. On arrival this restaurant seems to have all the boxes ticked - trendy location, great food at reasonable prices and friendly staff. However, even with only about half the tables filled the noise level was so high that we started off shouting at each other and then gave up and just enjoyed our meal and moved onto quieter location for coffee. It's a shame - guess it's the building acoustics. Would definitely recommend for a quick bite but not for a romantic date or when you want to indulge in any meaningful conversation with your partner, family or friends.

Zizzis in the West End is different from the others I have been to. There is a more casual feel to it. The kitchen is open plan where you can see the big pizza oven. The staff were friendly and always seemed to come at the right time. Overall I would recomend this place if you were planning on a casual meal rather than a quite romantic meal for 2.

Le Monde, George Street, Edinburgh. Enjoyed the meal but you don't get very much and I don't feel it is good value for money. Glad we had the 20% discount. The restaurant however has a nice ambience and the service was very good.

Visited Le Monde Edinburgh for a meal on Saturday 4th Feb. Atmosphere was great and meal was lovely although the sizzling tiger prawns could have been hotter. Would recommend this restaurant as prices were quite reasonable. The Le Monde fish and chips was excellent!

We visited Le Mande in edinburgh on 17th January 2012 and were NOT disappointed! What a fabulous venue. Very modern and open, however, secluded little areas where you can get some intimacy. Firstly, the service was great. Attentive and efficient staff who looked after us all evening. Secondly, the food!! My word, what an extensive menu presented beautifully and cooked to perfection! lastly, the cost - may be a little over priced in places - but you get what you pay for and worth every penny

First time we had visited Le Monde and we had high hopes but we won't be back. When the waitress brought my drink I said "sorry the coke was no ice" she said "I can change it, but it was only no ice in the pint you asked for". Point off right away, don't tell me what I asked for! The starters were not worth what they were priced at and weren't great. Mains were nice & good size. When bill came the discount hadn't been applied, I had to ask for it. All in all not great.

Le Monde in Edinburgh was a fantastic experience. Huge food portions of excellent quality and a lovely selection of drinks including delicious cocktails. Service was perfect, and very helpful! An extra 20% off our bill was definitely a little extra that was very appreciated.

Girls lunch at Le Monde in Edinburgh. It had been revamped since the last time we were there but food, service and vino as good as ever. Two tips though - I has requested a table in Paris but wouldn't have got it if I hadn't phoned to check and when we got our bill the 20% off the total bill was missing. Once questioned if was fixed in an instant but worthwhile checking you have got the deal if you've booked it

Visited Zizzi Glasgow westend on a weekday night. Had 3 tapas for starters plus bread and olives and then a Rustica pizza each (on a 2 for 1 deal). Waitress did warn maybe too much but had a hungry boyfriend so we stuck to it. Food was very nice, very good portions (didn't quite finish pizza) and good atmosphere. Will be back again.

Le Monde Edinburgh is a fantastic night out. Our party of 10 girls had a lovely meal. We did have a slight prob with the steak pie's that were ordered but they were changed and not charged for! Lovely place to go as a group or a romantic meal for two. Will def be back.

The food in Le Monde was very tasty and good sized portions. The service was good too. Only downside was that the table was right next to the bar area so extremely noisy and we couldnt have a conversation ourselves.............

Le Monde: 16 George Street, Edinburgh

Very lovely restaurant, had a nice table and could not believe how busy it was so early on a Saturday night. Service was quick and food tasted lovely. Wine included in offer was also very nice. My only criticism would be that the offer menu was rather limited (only 4 starters and 4 main courses) but what we ate was well presented and tasted delicious. Would go back.

Le Monde in Edinburgh's George Street is a stylish and sleek bar/restaurant. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our table that already had our choice of 2 courses for £14.95 menu on it. Our choices were immediate with no debate had over the flat bread and hummous and bruchetta. Our main courses, again, picked themselves with tuscan lasgne and prawn risotto. If there were faults our jackets which rested on the next table should have been collected and the charging of the full bill was off
