This was our first visit to Wild Cabaret on our Work Christmas party night. The venue was packed ,too many diners per head of staff serving which led to disastrous service waited 80 minutes for first drink !! And an hour and a half before...starter was served. Food overall was good not great. We paid £69 for dinner and cabaret , entertainment was good and varied, compare swore too much (Kevin Bridges wanna be !! From Hamilton) and was really quite offensive at times tried frequently to shoosh the audience !! Suffice to say neither myself or my 12 colleagues will be back at any time of year .More

We went to Wild Cabaret for our works Christmas night out on Saturday, as we've done the past couple of years. Its a lovely venue, staff are always pleasant and food is fab. This year was a little disappointing though compared to previous years. The...food was still 10/10, but service was quite slow and some of the acts were a bit dull compared to others we've seen previously. Our main gripe though was when the entertainment finished at 11pm, there was no DJ/Disco on, so the place emptied quicker than Usain Bolt at the 100mtrs. In previous years a DJ was on until 1am and the venue remained packed, it was always a brilliant finish to the night. Such a pity this aspect of the night has been removed - although the ticket price has remained the same I'll add! We also had to query our bill, which had drinks added to it such as Bacardi and vodka, totalling over £100 which we didn't order (our whole table only drank beer, wine or gin all night). There was no debate with the bar staff when we brought this to their attention, they just said sorry, scrunched the receipt up and binned it.... a bit odd we felt considering the amount. Overall an ok night out - its what you make of it really, but we'll probably go elsewhere for our crimbo doo next year.More

We attended the bubbles and burlesque show two days ago. First time we have ever seen anything like it. Nice venue, good standard of food, excellent hard working waiting staff and a pretty decent show! Just over £20 each for a two course meal with...champagne and a show. Great value! I was amazed that with all these sexy women on show, there was only about 5 blokes there in an audience of around 200! Guys, you are missing out! Definitely would return!More

Booked this for my mum and dad for Xmas. They really enjoyed it and well worth the money. The meal was great value and they really enjoyed it. They went on the afternoon showing which meant they did not have to go out late at...night ( they are in their 70’s). I have been looking for another deal to buy for them.More

The place is an attractive venue, unfortunately we'd bought not cheap tickets for a comedy show which the management/staff decided to drown out with music from their bar. And if we weren't already having trouble enjoying the show we actually paid for above the music...din, staff kept opening doors at either end just to double the music level every now and then. I've no idea why they thought it acceptable to play their music SO loudly right next to a comedian and the people who paid to hear him, but i wouldn't go back there for any act that they might drown out. Bad management decision.More

So the concept of this is great but the delivery....not so much! Booked through 5pm.com for the half price offer, clearly stated afternoon or evening show on our chosen date. It was a birthday dinner so we had requested a booth, also due to a...member of our party being injured for comfy seating. Arrived at venue and were seated on main floor, we advised we had requested a booth, we were moved only to be told that when show starts others will be seated with us. Now we didnt mind this, but did object to this happening during our meal, 4 starngers were seated beside us just watching us eat. There was a huge hen party in, im all for a good time but they were very loud and with it being a small venue it was off putting. The show its self was ok, bit starnge in parts but great singer!When it came to paying bill we noticed whe had been charge £50 pp as apposed to the offer of £25, we were told it did not apply to the night we booked, despite having the paperwork to prove it we had to argue inbetween performances with the manger, who was very underdressed and to be frank quite rude...although they did honour the discount in the end. All in all the lack of customer service, rushed meals, loud groups and a bit of a weird performance means that we would not go back...shame as the meal was nice (would not be worth full price)...it could be great but they do not have it cracked at all.More

Went to the Wild Cabaret Noir night on saturday for a friends birthday. On entrance it's quite nice. However, service is shockingly slow. We were seated for 7:30 and given food menus, given one really hard to read drinks menu and then another drinks menu....Drinks order taken by 8pm, food order about 8.15 but then had no drinks delivered till nearly 8:45pm dinner served about 9pm. None of our group were served together since were all eating/not eating at different times. Drink prices are extortionate for not very much. 19.50 for a really nasty cheap bottle of rose wine. 45 quid for the cheapest steak and fries meal you will ever see..literally. it was basically a 2 min frying steak. Nothing worth the price. Well over 100 ton secure a table for the evening also. So not a pocket friendly evening and to top it off they have the cheek to charge over 50 quid for table service. The waitress done no more or less than any other waitress in any other restaurant, took ages to bring drinks a d seemed incredibly flustered. The show looked as though it had been thrown together in a few hour and very rushed. Costumes falling apart on stage and girls falling from heights in stilts made for a rather bizarre evening. It truly isn't worth the cost and I certainly wouldn't run back for more. The two stars are for the poor show girls and performers, they tried so hard and done their best but it was a bit of a shambles.More

We had a fabulous night in the wild cabaret in Glasgow and would recommend for a great night out accompanied by great food and dancers. Nicole was our server, and she couldn’t do enough for us. Thanks Nicole I hope your boss recognises what a...great asset you are to the organisation, we will return.More

Yes but it's really busy. There is also a show suitable for children on Sunday. I would recommend you book I've never seen empty tables.
