About Alchemilla

New Information regarding bookings:
Based on popular demand, Alchemilla will now be offering our bar stools to walk-ins only.

Simple Mediterranean food for sharing. Dishes are served from an open kitchen as they are ready, leading to a relaxed informal dining style experience. There is a real emphasis on fresh seasonal produce with our menu constantly in motion to reflect just that. 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. Expect knowledgeable and helpful staff that can help you with all aspects of your meal.

Our restaurant is split in to 3 levels- the Mezzanine, Ground Floor & Basement Dining Room so do look at all options when booking.

For tables of 5 + please call the restaurant directly, and we ask for a £5 per head deposit to secure these larger tables.

We are a small restaurant so please do not turn up too early or late for your table, and we request that you stick to your allocated time to allow us to offer all customers the best experience.
If you do not turn up for your table it will be given away after 15 minutes unless organised directly over the phone with the restaurant.

First visit and Alchemilla did not disappoint from many reviews that place near or at the top of Glasgow's restaurant scene. Food was all great - we only didn't give 5 stars as the drinks were a little disappointing. The initial drinks order also took some time to arrive hence taking a star from service - other than that the waitresses were helpful and knew the menu well. We would definitely return!

Très belle adresse! Une pépite! Des assiettes aussi belles que succulentes, nous nous sommes régalés! Les associations sont délicates, les cuissons parfaites, nous avons passé une excellente soirée!

We had a table from 6.30 until 8pm. Ordered a snack then four plates. By 7pm we had eaten our snack and one plate and it took another half an hour for the other plates to come. The waiter took the price of our desserts off the bill in recognition of this. The food was tasty but I think there are better restaurants in Finnieston with similar but better style of cooking for better value.

Really amazing food and awesome place to eat. You can’t go wrong. Slightly too hipster for my in-laws (whose larger backsides weren’t a fan of the small seats) but I simply can’t fault the place :) even the olive oil served with the sourdough was devine!

Went for a meal for my husbands birthday - while we were there the whole block had a power cut, but the staff were very lovely and helpful and offered us plenty of choices off the menu that we could have while the power was out, the power came back on and we thankfully also got to try some of the hot dishes - the food was great

Excellent meal, great evening. Only slight grumble is that at our table in the window, the window seat was much higher than the facing chair so me and my friend were a bit mismatched!

We had a table at the mezzanine. Before arriving, I was aware that the seating was fixed position stools. I called to say that since booking the table, I had injured my back and asked if it would be possible to have a chair. As it was a Saturday evening, I was very understanding when I was told that no other tables were available, and said I would persevere with a stool. However, when we arrived we were shocked by the table we were seated at. I have never experienced anything like it and have never been so uncomfortable. There was just not adequate space for 4 people and their sharing plates! We clinged to the table and took it is turns to eat. I really wish we were exaggerating. The stools were so close to one another, that I joked with a friend that we'd have to hold hands across the table to keep balance. My husband, who kept slipping off the stool was so embarrassed he left the table multiple times. It was such a farce, that we at least found some comedy in the situation. We absolutely loved the food and could not fault the service, but it just did not feel right that we were paying the same price as any other diner, and had nowhere near the level of comfort as anyone else or that anyone would ever expect. Because we were so uncomfortable, the meal was rushed and the whole experience was clouded. We honestly would never come back if there was a risk of similar seating. I thought it was only right to pass on this feedback, as it seems the space would make a lovely private booth. It's a story I'm afraid we'll be laughing about with friends for some time.

Service staff was professional and knowledgable. Food was not really up to par with the price level. Tastes were bland and too all over the place.

This was my second visit to Glasgow and second visit to Alchemilla. I love their ambiance, but most of all their Food, the freshness of the produce and style of cooking. Best is to order a few dishes and share. This time, We visited with a group of 5 and were able to taste most of the dishes on the menu
