“Tea and coffee only”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Was going to have lunch here but thought it far too pricey so decided on tea and coffee only was never given the option of having a scone or cake. Only down side is you are seated at the tables right at the entrance door if not having food. Don't like sitting at a table with my wet jacket on getting the chills every time the door opens. The tea was nice and so was the coffee but won't be back.

“Good food no atmosphere”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely meal there courtesy of Tesco vouchers and was pleasantly surprised.
Pate and French onion soup good start. Fillet steak while small was very tastey and french fries very moreish.
Staff friendly and attentive. Only thing letting them down is the decor place just doesnt have any atmosphere.

“Pleasant Enough and Reasonable for the Centre of Glasgow”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The French theme mixed well with the Glasgow reality. The decor was a little tired and in need of sprucing up to make it feel more cared for. We took the 'Price Fixe' option and had a pleasant three course all day meal deal with good sized portions, well presented and tasty. The service was prompt without being rushed and the waitress was open without being intrusive or unfriendly. Would certainly go back as the restaurant has style without being the bland feel of so many chains.

“Not impressed Pricey and unappetising food-sub standard produce”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

I have been to café rouge in various locations across the Uk. Most have been modernised and the food is of superb quality as is the service.However this experience was appalling. We were seated in an almost empty restaurant , in a winter climate, at the door. The decor was dated and it lacked an atmosphere.The salmon Niçoise salad I ordered was sub standard as were the portion size especially the children's meals. Presentation of food was horrendous even the quality of produce used was lagging. Who uses full sized unripe tomatoes in a salad these days? There was one waiter who looked like the manager who scuttled around vigorously from table to table. Not the experience it should have been. I won't be back.

“Nice place but food unappetising”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Nice restaurant and no quibbles with the service but the food was very unappealing and perhaps obviously microwaved. The setting is nice but very much not taking advantage of this and could do better. There is a lot of competition in Glasgow .
