Food was very good and well presented. Choice of three each of starters, mains and desserts for lunch menu was sufficient to find something suitable. The service was just right, attentive but not in your face. Drinks are fairly expensive, about £30 for 2 glasses of wine, 2 coffees and a bottle of sparkling water. Nevertheless, a very enjoyable lunch and we look forward to returning soon.

Our experience on Saturday night was truly unremarkable. I was looking forward to an experience but was left really disappointed at ever turn. We decided to have the celebration menu which we were assured would be possible in the 2 and a half hours we had until the ballet. Sancerre we ordered was ok but not chilled to our taste. The haggis Bon Bon was alright but set the scene really. The terrine was dry and served with the same garnish and reconstituted chutney. The scallops were cooked very well but the prawn (crevette haha) was a bullet. The sauce was like Kraft made it. The soup was just simply that. The lamb was cooked to perfection but let down with a mess of presentation and watery texture. The potato was ok. The cheese was a good selection and amount but just looked sad. It was as if it had been portioned and plated when we ordered at the start. The brownie was simply that. There’s no imagination here, nothing exciting. We didn’t have anything good to say to each other about our meal at any stage. Reflected as such when some courses were cleared by the Maitre d and we fed back that they were ‘fine’ but wasn’t asked to elaborate. Sadly disappointed, MICHELIN guide are spot on and they won’t be changing their mind in a hurry. We had to remind our waiter that we had to leave in time and it was clearly the first he had known (clearly the Maitre d clearly had not updated his staff of our requirement). The waiter was fantastic, cheese cleared, bill in front of us, dessert as well, taxi ordered - only for the Maitre d to give our taxi away! We had to wait for another. Just made the performance. The waiting staff were good otherwise. 2 other tables complained whilst we were there which just composed things really. How many doilies must they go through - every course plate on plate (they are pretty old as well, they feel gritty). The salt and pepper shakers are probably still surviving from the opening night. Won’t be back, plenty of exciting restaurants in Glasgow, this one needs to have a real think about what it is doing.

The welcome is very friendly and relaxed. Our server is a fine connoisseur of wines, and that's great, we were able to chat with passion, about the different wines he served us. The discovery menu is very good, with Scottish gastronomy revisited. on the other hand, in the main dish, there are too many things. the lamb, very well cooked, is lost in the middle of all these accompaniments. Its taste is then lost, it's a shame. In the entrees, the terrine is a little dry. This restaurant is very good, there are still some details to correct and will become perfect. it is a place to recommend for all lovers of gastronomy.

Overall, it was a very pleasurable dining experience. Had the 6 course celebration tasting menu which could be characterised as inconsistent. The soup, lamb and scallop dishes were excellent. The game terrine was adequate, the cheese board selection was quite pedestrian and most disappointing of all was the brownie and pistachio ice cream. The ice cream did not taste of pistachio and I have had similar brownies in wetherspoons!

We had a great Christmas eve lunch at the restaurant and everything was lovely and Gary in particular offered great service. A wine recommended wss not to our taste and was replaced with something else. Thank you for a great start to Christmas.

Brian Maule at Le Chardon d'Or has become a favourite of ours. My wife and I have been three times in the last 18 months and have been extremely pleased each time. For both quality of food and service it is outstanding. We will definitely be returning in the not too distant.

Thought long and hard about this feedback. I hate leaving negative reviews. But want to spare others the expense and disappointment. Let me emphasis the food was fine. Nothing wrong with it, tasty. But it was not a £100 a head worthy meal. It’s the little things that elevate. Probably suffered by comparison, we had an incredible meal at La Gavroche a few months back and expected the same level. We weren’t greeted as we walked through the door and had to wait a few moments. No biggy. Several waitresses had mobiles visible in there back pockets. No biggy. After we finished each course I had barely put down my knife and fork when the plates were whisked away. I’m all from prompt service but this felt rushed. At one point mid meal a table was reset near ours. I understand this needs to happen. But again. For £100 a head meal it shouldn’t feel like this process is invading our meal with table cloths being whisked about. Far from seamlessly done. While a table across from ours was being served by several waiters one waiter put there hand on the back of my partners seat. Not a big deal. But not what should happen at this level of restaurant. We asked for a liquor list after we finished our meal. There wasn’t one, they did have a liquor I liked when we discussed options with the waiter. But would have been better to look through a list, I often find something new I like. Again not major. My partner asked for a brandy. They didn’t have any. Not great. Basic of any bar in any restaurant. The £15 for three tiny slices of cheese was I felt, too expensive. Especially when you weren’t presented with a selection of cheeses to choose from. I advised the waitress I’m not a cheddar fan and it looked like all that happened was one cheese was removed from the plate. We had to ask for the bill twice. Odd given how rushed the rest of service had felt. We asked once from the waitress and once from what I think, but couldn’t say for sure was the head waiter. He was rather dismissive. What finished it for me, and I can’t say for sure, but in my direct eye line a few feet from our table it looked like the waitress who was supposed to have gotten our bill was getting some guidance from the head waiter after our second request to him. All in. It was an ok meal. The food was fine. The wine was fine. The service fine. Not sure if it was a young inexperienced staff that didn’t create the right atmosphere. But it just simply was not a £100 per head meal.

My husband and myself had a wonderful experience at the restaurant. Food was delicious. I had the best lamb I’ve ever had. We had a lovely bottle of red wine (Italian) and the service was impeccable.

Five of us had a delightful special meal here. The food was perfect and, as a coeliac vegetarian, I was very impressed by how they dealt quietly and efficiently with my dietary limitations. The staff were excellent, very professional yet unobtrusive.
