Good for a special occasion, pretty pricey but good food. Good service, bathrooms are clean. Would recommend to friends, however a lot already know and love this place.

Wonderful food with the best possible staff. Clearly lots of thought has being put into the menu, staff are attentive, and food very fresh and succellent. A joy to see that art is officially on a plate! Each plate decorated with beauty and fresh tastes. A wonderful restaurant and its safe to say the best meal I have had.

Went with a small family group to jointly celebrate imminent milestone birthdays for my cousin and I. On each occasion we have been before it was also for a family celebration as The Buttery has that sort of “special occasion” reputation which is a shame in a way as it would probably be better served with an “any and every...

Thoroughly recommended and just the place for that special occasion. The food and the service we received could not be faulted but it's probably better at lunchtime when it's easier to find your way there and back to the mainstream of things. I would definitely not try it at night unless you're well acquainted with the area.

As a Glasgow ex pat I was keen to go back after so long. I could not tell any difference. It is still in a building that looks like it should be demolished. Still quaint inside, and the menu is reassuringly good. There is not too much I can say that has not been said already. Food and staff all... More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening there. Great ambience to the place immediately you set foot in the door. Staff who greet you were pleasant and welcoming. Excellent selection of drinks available, including a cocktail list which we didn't see! You just seem to relax a bit more with a drink in your hand and a menu in the other! After... More

I had been at the buttery years before when Argyle Street was continuous and so kenw its location. I checked the AA route finder - St Vincent Street, Elderslie Street, roundabout, turn left. I soon discovered the roads were altered - the roundabout was gone, new one way streets had been introduced. It took almost 30 minutes of touring the... More
