“Style Over Substance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Wife and myself went for dinner on the Saturday night and felt disappointed with the experience. Lovely surrounding when you approach and very busy too. Although we arrived on time we had to wait, however it was a Saturday night so was not the end of the world. First impressions were that the restaurant was more geared for large family parties and all male and female nights out rather than the quiet dinner we had hoped for as the place was full of them. Food was slow although the matre d was very apologetic. starters served on silly flat slates with food falling off when brought from the kitchen. Main meals were served with no potatoes or vegetables (unless you take steak) so had to be ordered as sides. Overall i was fairly disappointed with my visit as i had expected so much more. The food was not cheap with an emphasis on style over substance. I am a regular user of restaurants in the lanarkshire area and i believe that the are many better quality and better value options than this.

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. I’m sorry that you felt disappointed with your visit to Dalziel Park on a busy Saturday night. Our restaurant caters for parties of all sizes which varies from week to week depending on the bookings. All our dishes are made fresh to order and all include potatoes and vegetables with the exception of pastas and risottos. We do, as you mention also offer a variety of side dishes which are there as an addition to any order. Here at Dalziel we pride ourselves on good quality and value, we would hope that you would come back and try us again.

“Nice food shame about the service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Booked lunch after reading about this restaurant. Food was excellent and good size portions. There were 4 of us and all had different starters, prawn and chorizo, haggis Bon bons, white onion soup and scallops. All were nicely presented and flavours were great however 2 arrived and we waited another 5mins for the other starters to be served. On mains 2 of us had the duck while the other 2 members of the party had fish, 1 sea bass and 1 fish and chips. Again food was great but again 2 were served and another 5min period before the other 2 arrived. We then waited approx 20 mins for our plates to be cleared and had to ask for dessert menus. 3 of us had dessert and 1 ask for a cappuccino while we had our desserts. The cappuccino arrived however it was another 10 mins before the desserts arrived. We were asked by the waiter to comment on the lemon tart which 2 of us ordered as it was new to the menu. The filling was very good and really tangy which I like however the pastry was too thick and difficult to cut through. The other member of our party had the rhubarb and raspberry crumble which he found very tasty. When we ordered desserts 2 of us asked for double espresso's to be served after dessert but again we had to ask the waitress to bring them to us. They turned out to be Americano coffee's with an extra shot.
The restaurant could do with a manager overseeing the service as it certainly was sporadic during our visit. The staff were pleasant enough however it was evident they were under pressure on a busy afternoon.
I hope the Management review the number of staff and service offered as it let's this restaurant down when the food is so good.

“Good honest food in lovely surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Off the beaten track for those who don't live locally, Dalziel Park was refurbished to a high standard and both the bar and the restaurant are not just lovely but with a good mix of comfort too. There is a cosy informal feeling about the bar and lounge area with comfortable sofas and fires. The restaurant is gorgeous but we often eat in the bar. They offer a very reasonable set menu at £12.95 for two courses. Offering soup, haggis, pate for starters as well as steaks, roasts, macaroni, stroganoff, steak pie etc etc there is something for everyone.

For a reasonably priced meal in nice surroundings, give this one a go.
