Girlfriend & I visited here on a Sunday night having heard some great reviews. All I can say is we were disappointed. The food was of excellent quality at a competitive price, all underpinned by top service in a nice setting. I have the steamed scallops to start, which served with chilli and soy... read more

Having eaten in this restaurant for many years I am sad to say it is now only half as good as it used to by - food still ok but not nearly as nice nor is the presentation as nice - used to be one of my favourite restaurants but don't think I will return again.

Booked a table for four at the restaurant last night, as in previous visits the restaurant was busy [a good sign] and as requested they had a table for us in the main restaurant. However we were seated at a round table up against a wall so it was a bit of a tight squeeze for the four of us... More

A great centrally located restaurant. The staff are very attentive and the food always well cooked. The wine list has quite a selection but a little pricey. Tables cater for all size of groups/parties but recommend you book as far in advance as you can to prevent disappointment. Sometimes the courses are served a little to quickly giving the feeling...

I have been coming here with my family for a number of years and the food is always of the same high standard. The presentation of the dishes is fantastic and the staff are always very attentive. The food is so good it would be easy to fill up on starters. I would recommend the honey chicken wings starter.

I visited alone on a recent business trip to Glasgow. I went on a whim and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and well presented. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful! The price was also very reasonable and giving I visited on a Wednesday my main was half price! I will definitely be visiting... More

Excellent king prawn satay. Good selection for the family including one with some minor allergies. Not the best wine list for food pairing but there was is one Alsace that compliments the better than average cuisine.

Like many reviewers, we have had the pleasure of visiting this "gem" many times over the years. We continue to "find" celebratory reasons to enjoy a night at the Amber, the latest being the third anniversary of my stroke, and the fact that we continue to enjoy our lives to the best of our ability. My ongoing quest to try... More

We've been going regularly to Amber Regent for about seven or eight years and the high quality of food and service is the same always. As a couple or in a group for the office Christmas lunch we've never been disappointed.
