“Monday Night Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

My partner and I came to Glasgow for a couple of nights to see family and catch up with friends. We had the Monday night free and we're staying at the Lorne Hotel across the road from the Ox and Finch. We noticed it was busy at all times of the day and decided to give it a try. Two words...........taste sensation! What a fabulous restaurant! We had 6 dishes between us, the scallops are to die for, pork was so tasty and the desserts are out of this world. Including wine for both of us the whole bill was £50, which we think is great value for top class food. The restaurant has only been open since May 2014 but feels like it's been there for years as the staff are very good also, not too pushy and very friendly. We are already planning another trip in December and the Ox and Finch is on our list of places to go. Do not miss out on the extraordinary dinning experience!!!!!!!!

“Very Enjoyable Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

My adult daughter and I had dinner in July 2014. It was a busy night and we had not booked, but they kindly made a table available for us and the staff and service were very helpful throughout the evening. Enjoyed watching the open kitchen (very hard and fast work). Chose a range of small dishes from the tapas menu and enjoyed each one very much. Portion size medium rather than tiny and all flavours apparent and very well-presented. Particularly the salad was excellent. Wine list also very good. Cost less than expected. We enjoyed the meal very much and recommend to other diners.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Myself and friends ate here recently in the private dining area. Service was excellent, food was delicious and wine selection was great. We all enjoyed the smaller dishes so we could have more, we all left very happy with the evening and I will definately return again.
Highly recommend.

“MENU UPDATE REQUIRED”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Service great - food great - good value for money - excellent atmosphere - only concern is that, after 2 or 3 visits, you have tasted the entire menu

Update/ change the menu to encourage satisfied customers to come again to taste something different - otherwise, 10/10

Hi Rona,

Thank you very much for your appreciation of the service, food, value and ambience experienced at 920 Sauchiehall Street.

We introduced a seasonal new menu at the restaurant in the second week of July (two months after we opened our doors) which reflected the latest seasonal produce entering the markets and will continue to evolve our menu as seasons change and new ingredients appear. We hope that diners will always find some firm favourites on our menu whilst having the opportunity to savour new flavours too.

We trust that we can welcome you again at Ox and Finch very soon.

With our warmest regards,

The Ox and Finch team.
