The forward thinking wine list focuses on natural and organic wines that are complimentary to our food offerings, whilst the cocktail list has some fresh and striking combinations.

Originally from Glasgow but haven't lived there in 12years. I've been coming to Alchemilla for the last 3years and this might have been the best yet!!!! Honestly my favourite place to eat in Glasgow and possibly the UK

We dined on a Thursday early evening and the restaurant was pleasantly busy. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, our favourite dishes being buratta and courgettes, mackerel ceviche, and octopus but everything was amazing. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and made the whole experience a real treat.

Really gone downhill, had to ask twice for our bread and oil, after about 1 hour the cauliflower arrived then eventually my wife’s next course arrived, after 1and half hours I was about to leave when the barman caught my wife’s eye and asked if he could help and said he would chase my fish course.Meanwhile the table beside us who arrived 45mins after us had their bread and a few of the dishes they had ordered. One more complaint the food was served on cold plates so obviously by the time we eventually got it it was cold. I have to wonder if there is some sort of problem with the fact that the dishes are served up as and when the kitchen puts them out but surely get your act together after all it’s the customer that should come first not the kitchen. Keep treating customers like this and you won’t last, there is too many good restaurants in Glasgow now.

Really disappointing experience. Before we were sat down at our teeny tiny table (really not suitable for a sharing plate meal) we were reminded we needed to have left the building in 90 mins so other sitting could be turned around. Not a welcoming atmosphere. We were served after the couple next to us who were seated after us. It felt more McDonald’s than a lovely space to dwell with loved ones appreciating good food and beverages. Cocktail: didn’t fill the glass it was served in...felt shortchanged. Fill with mixer or use a shorter glass - it’s not difficult. The food: we had six dishes. At least three weren’t great. The burrata was overly salty and didn’t contain the headline preserved lemon. The two raw garlic cloves on the octopus were over whelming. The roast onion dressing was too vinegary. It’s was just average at best. Maybe we are spoiled as we have eaten at several ottolenghi restaurants in London. This isn’t in the same league at all. We also have the recipe books and are reasonably good cooks. I would rather stay home, cook and do the clean up than head back here. The area is full of highly tested places to eat - that choice means we won’t be back.

We loved dinner at Alchemilla. Could have ordered everything off the menu. Almost did. Spot-on service in a buzzy modern room. See you again in November...

The food was delicious, as always. As a vegetarian, I love how vegetables are front and centre of a number of dishes. Alchemilla just does things more interestingly than most places!

The prices have gone up a lot and the quality was not as good as I had experienced before. I used to love this restaurant but won’t be rushing back.

We had dinner last thursday at Alchemilla. We had big expectations because of very positive comments in TimeOut and Tripadvisor. These expectations have not been met. Staff was very friendly but food was once too salty and once to sour. Altogether the taste was never really round. And by the way all windows have been open until guests asked to close them because they were freezing - so alltogether it was hard to feel really comfortable during our evening at Alchemilla.
