We were brought here by some business partners for dinner, and it was quite nice. My first taste of Scottish food was surprisingly good, and this restaurant upheld the trend of being another surprisingly good place to eat. The atmosphere was energetic, and the decor on the second floor had an open air feeling to it. The staff was on... More

Myself and my girlfriend have visited ubiquitous chip on 4 or 5 occasions now. We tend to keep it for occasions such as birthdays as its not cheap but have been a few times just as an excuse to treat ourselves. We always try different dishes each and every time and have been nothing but delighted. We have had monkfish... More

The Chip as its known in Glasgow is living on the memories of old . Inside it needs spruced up. The food is good but not great. It can be over priced and noisy .

As a country boy brought up on mince an' tatties and other homely food I found the menu in this renowned restaurant to be totally confusing. The only conclusion that I could make that this is a place for food luvvies. What is salsify and fennel veloute and why would Islay scallops be polluted with crispy pig cheek? I settled... More

Visited first time for a family birthday, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was incredible, portions did seem a bit small when they came out but the food was very rich and filling so we were well satisfied. The building is amazing inside, it's like an 'outdoor' courtyard which has been covered in a glass ceiling. There is a ground... More

Visited for a special dinner and we were not disappointed! The staff were very helpful and attentive from the moment we walked in. The restaurant is much bigger than we expected and has a unique layout. The food was incredible! I had the steak au poivre with a side of veg which was amazing - cooked to perfection! My boyfriend...

The food is perfect. I chose the fresh fish of the day. All kinds of people ready to converse. What a great time.
