“Excellent pre-theatre experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Now had the pre-theatre three times and would very much recommend it. Restaurant very special, lovely table settings etc and food excellent. Good menu choices. Service very good, staff friendly. Pre-theatre very good value for money.

“ok but v slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

dined here on 27th October. Table booked for 8.30, didn't get seated till 9 and the service continued at the same pace. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. The main problem was that they had clearly overbooked and the staff were overwhelmed. When my wife mentioned the long waits to the waitress the reason given was that they were very busy. Nice to know it was something out of their control. Maybe it's ok on a monday lunchtime but won't be gojng back on a Saturday evening.

Went back for my girlfriend's birthday. Lovely service, ambience and service. No rush at all despite the restaurant being full. Highly recommended.

“Quiet atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Lunch time set menu. Limited choice but very good quality overall. Menu descriptions underplay the quality of cooking and what you see on your plate. Smooth and delicious parsnip soup; pork medallions and a very French ragout of green lentils; lovely ice-creams, including a five spice ice cream. Good value Merlot to go with the meal. Very good service and, overall, a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.

“wow....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

i booked this place recommended by a friend a number of years previously for my dads birthdya, for which i was flying home.

Outstanding is the only word. Food was full of flavour, and good size portions - meaning 3 of us couldn't even look at the desert menu. With coffee the Maitre D' presenting a plate with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate with a candle and truffles. Small touches like this set a place out from the "hum drum" and with the exceptional quality of the food makes Brian Maule a real jewel in the Glasgow and Scottish restaurant scene.

I look forward to my next visit.
