My review is slightly biased. I have been to the restaurant on multiple occasions, but have not really ordered anything other than the risotto and the beef wellington. Both are out of this world! I really love going here and I am perfectly satisfied that I don't know the rest of the menu all that well. Even the waitress commented... More

Great spot with good food, craft cocktails, spirits and a good atmosphere for dinner. Lots of good table-sized appetizers like the whiskey bread and scotch egg. We also ordered the sweet potato chips off of the sides menu and they were a great starter. Good entrees all around. Solid menu. If you want haggis, ask for it, they may have... More

We had dinner here with our god daughter who is working in NYC. We popped in on the recommendation of a friend who owns Beirehalle and Cocktail and Burger in Glasgow. So high expectations. We were not disappointed. The decor is stunning, great setting and perfect service. After a few days of American gush it was refreshing to get good... More

Food was good. Orders were taken pretty quickly, but not delivered so quickly. Only place open for breakfast on the 4th. We would eat there again. Little pricey... $ 32 bucks for 4 people.

Had a quick pre-dinner cocktail here, though could've stayed if we didn't have dinner reservations...it was a wonderful bar. The decor was fantastic, we had a window seat, and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our drinks. (Quite possibly the best "Old Fashioned" I've had).

This a great place to explore the world of scotch. They also infuse their own vodkas for those non-scotch drinkers. The food was prepared wonderfully and had great flavor. We had the scotch boiled egg, whipped ricotta for apps and the main course had the beef Wellington - amazing, & bangers & mash. All nicely balanced with flavors and textures.

Once a month I go out with friends and we decided to check this place out. We had a great time. I had the Scottish Trout, which was really great! The plate size was great. We also tried the Bangers and Mash, which was really great as well. For dessert we tried the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Great Venue! I really... More

Maybe we came on an off night but despite the fact that we really liked the ambiance and the 'feel' of this place, it disappointed at every turn. Poor quality food, sloppy preparation, inattentive and often indifferent service, it was not a very pleasant experience for us at all. It was worse still that there were actually several highlights of... More

Fun place with very good food and service. Came here for my wife's birthday so she could get in touch with her heritage. Food was good, service was good. She tried the haggis, and loved it so much. I had the braised lamb, which was also quite tasty.If you are a whisky connoisseur, this is the place for you. Huge... More

Stepped in here on a winter Sunday night because the place looked so appealing from the sidewalk. It was empty which gave us pause, but it was early. We're glad we stopped.. There was a fairly limited menu but it included the Sunday Roast which was just the kind of thing we had in mind : roast crispy-skinned pork with... More
