Booked a table and we were ignored for 20 minutes whilst waiting to be seated, which I would understand if it was busy but there was only 5 tables of people in. When we finally were seated we got cocktails which were included in the deal but we did not get to pick when I questioned it the girl walked... More

Very disappointed! Do not expect to have anything you want on the menu, then don't expect them to bring you what you ordered! Do expect to chase the staff for service, do expect to be charged over the odds for very average food (if you get it) And finally don't expect anyone to give a monkeys that they have ruined... More

I have eaten in this restaurant before for special occasions and the service here has never been disappointing. When we arrived, we were offered the Market menu which was a "great value" option because you could get either 2 or 3 courses for a certain price starting from £14.95. However, the only down side with the menu is you don't... More

The food (meat) was good cooked, The service was helpful. Being also the restaurant where the breakfast of the hotel is served, the ambiance is not really great.

Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere (if perhaps a little on the chilly side) and extremely good steak. The parsnip tortellini and ham hough terrine starters were delicious. We then chose the chateaubriand which was cooked perfectly to our taste (rare), there was no disappointment with over cooked steak here. The choice of complimentary sauces is very good, personally I only used... More

Bo'vine is a very attractive restaurant and has an excellent location on Byres Road. The chateaubriand was excellent and the accompanying peppercorn sauce and prawn skewers were outstanding. Unfortunately the service did not quite do the food justice. It wasn't bad but on a relatively quiet Wednesday evening it took over an hour from sitting down for our one course... More

Scottish farmers are known the world over for their dedication to The Cause and their consistently high-standards. That’s why you’ll find that almost everything on our menu was either reared here, harvested here or was landed right here on the shores of Scotland.Our approach to cooking is typically no-nonsense too; we source the finest ingredients like 28-day hung Scotch beef and seafoods from local waters, add a little flair and influence from the Auld Alliance and simply let the food do the talking. We think you’ll love the Bo’Vine difference!
