Such a treat to have a lovely dinner in peace away from our awful children, plus no chance whatsoever of getting stabbed in Finnieston.

Loved Alchemilla so much! Delicious food with expertly balanced flavours. We came to Glasgow for my boyfriend’s birthday and would recommend the restaurant to anybody visiting the city. We ate on the ground floor - beautiful atmosphere, and the artichoke with pear and parmesan was perfect! Kind and good service, five stars all round.

The food was delicious. Lots of interesting tastes. The waiter told us we'd ordered too much so we pared our dishes down to what proved to be the perfect amount. I'll definitely return next time I'm in Glasgow.

Food was lovely but the overall experience could've been easily improved. ~ address the comfort of customers sitting in the window seats during winter months! The draught coming through the window frames was so uncomfortable, I had to sit with my coat wrapped round my middle throughout my meal, as did the woman on the table next to us. She mentioned it to one of the staff who seemed a bit nonplussed about it. I don't think she would have been the first to mention this....It could be easily addressed by fully sealing the window frames and also putting a raised back to the bench seats in the windows. This factor alone spoiled our dining experience. ~ Staff were pleasant but not particularly attentive. People on table next to us arrived 10mins after us but were served before us. No-one asked us at any time if everything was alright with our food nor detailed what each plate was though, I did hear the people at the next table being reminded of what was in each plate as it was served. This would've been helpful as it is hard to remember the details when ordering a few plates. ~ I ordered the dessert special to be told 5mins later that it had not set therefore couldn't be served. I overheard the same thing at the next table, these things happen that's okay but, it would've been helpful to have it removed from the blackboard or the staff advised to tell people before orders are taken. Also, just because one's table is near the bar does not make it acceptable to shout across to customers about orders. The people next to us had asked for tea and one of the servers subsequently asked about choices, etc whilst still behind the bar and effectively shouting over our heads to converse with the people next to us whilst she boiled the kettle - fine in a coffee shop at 10am but not when out for dinner in a Michelin listed restaurant. ~ get a coffee machine! ~ get some decent lighting in the ladies loos! We loved the food and would come back, though would be reluctant to recommend it yet...

A very welcoming and informed member of the waiting team weloped us and kept an eye on our service. The menu was interesting and all was well explained. The food was delicious. The wine, relatively good value...only down side our table was by the window and it was a bit cold...otherwise look forward to visiting again..

Really enjoyed Alchemilla and will definitely come again. Booked table in mezzanine and that is really my only gripe about the restaurant. Space was very cramped and the fact the bar stools were fixed to the floor was both uncomfortable and really irritating. Also if you are wanting diners to leave reviews why should we have to agree to the terms and conditions of ResDiary to do this: it is you who are fishing for compliments so you should not expect diners to have to agree to a third party’s T&Cs in order to do so.

Great food and service. Not fancy, just imaginative dishes to impress. Some dishes might be presented a little better but all were cooked well and the tastes were memorable. Sea Bream cerviche with black berries was a standout. Both desserts were fab but parsnip cake might have looked nicer on the plate

I have visited before and absolutely loved my meal, I feel yesterday’s meal just was a disappointment. Every dish was edible but wasn’t really great, I was disappointed with my meal.

Exemplary, contemporary and innovative. Only reason I give 4 stars on atmosphere was because we were seated downstairs; missing the cracking decor and kitchen.

The food was lovely - fresh and beautiful cooked. The hake was beautiful cooked and the blackberries with the sea bream ceviche was very interesting. I didn’t like the artichoke dish as I found it to vinegary and the pigeon was overcooked for my liking - however, these were removed from the bill so I was happy about that. The dessert of parsley root surprises me as it’s not something I thought I would like. I would like to come back with more people to try more dishes. Very nice
