Went for dinner with friends visiting Glasgow - great atmosphere and professional service - the dishes were superb and original. A great addition to the Finnieston gourmet scene!

We had a while to wait before we were able to get into this restaurant as it was always fully booked weeks in advance for a Saturday evening....know I know why!.....well worth the wait in every respect...every single dish that we had was wonderful ( & we are fussy!)...lovely atmosphere, attentive caring staff & I loved the open kitchen. Well done Ox & Finch...will book soon for November so as we are not disappointed:)

Hi Ileen,

We’re delighted that you found dinner at Ox and Finch to be worth the wait. We are very busy at weekends and, as you suggest, it’s probably best to book in advance. We are also very grateful that you describe the service received from “attentive, caring staff” and look forward to welcoming you back in November.

With our warmest wishes,

The Ox and Finch team.

Four of us went for lunch. Slight booking mix up when we arrived but manager did a great job and resolved issue quickly. Was busy and good atmosphere. Not much of a bar area mainly a restaurant with small bar. Service was friendly and efficient. Menu is designed for sharing but if sharing ain't your thing then would stIll be ok. Prices pretty reasonable and on par with similar places in west in or city. Would not hesitate to go back.

Visited on a busy Wednesday night for an anniversary. The service from beginning to end was incredible. Dish after dish was delicious, I honestly cannot rate the food more highly.
