Only comment is that our bottle of sparkling water should not have been placed on the windowsill. Would have preferred it in an ice bucket or even on the table. The lamb was excellent and the asparagus best I've ever eaten.

The food was amazing as always but it was incredibly noisy as there was a large party celebrating a birthday. It would have been better if they had been in a separate room.

Another great meal. Quality of produce is superb as is service and attention from staff. It was our dining partners first visit but I know it won't be their last.

Lovely lunch, looked after by lovely staff. We do like restaurants where the chef comes out for a chat when he can. But this did not happen. ☹️ Will recommend to friends and return again for sure. Everything we expected so nice to have a great food experience at lunch time mid week. Thank you.

Sadly the service we received did not meet our expectations. The food and the setting were perfect. A very nice lunch that with a little bit more attention by the front of house team could have been an excellent lunch.

My wife and I always come up from Ayr, on special occasions for the Pre Theatre Menu and we have never been disappointed.

We had a fabulous experience last night. The food was excellent. The wine to, service. ( Though, Open wine was left on a small table at first by the reception - our white wine!) I would of preferred it was left in ice at our table. We weren't expecting huge portions for A'la Carte! As generous and tasty as the food is, maybe the main meal could be slightly less, as we were all full halfway through the mains! Though we did order dessert and enjoy! The scallops were sensational - the flavours complimented each other very well. Thank you for a great experience and we will return!

The food was good but not wonderful. The chocolates were excellent. Overall we felt felt the cost was 15% to 20% too expensive.

We’ve downgraded service as the waitress poured the full bottle of tonic into a Gin (and Tonic) without allowing the customer to decide their self.

This was our second time at Brian Male and it did not disappoint. This is a great restaurant near the centre of the city. Great food, exceptional service and a great atmosphere. Wine choice was brilliant, overall an exceptional night.

Glasgow has a wealth of fine dining restaurants, many showcasing Scottish produce in unique and exciting dishes. I was surprised to be eating from the ‘spring’ a la carte menu and to be honest was a little uninspired by the range of dishes on offer. None the less having heard a lot of positive reviews I was anticipating the dishes to be executed to an exceptional standard. Sadly, this was not the case. While the food was acceptably palatable, akin to a decent home cooked meal, there were many unforgivable flaws which in my opinion are bordering on laziness and arrogance. Shell fragments in the spiced crab which was lacking spice yet the gaudy cauliflower puree that accompanied the scallops had an overpowering hit of raw turmeric. The Stonebass was overcooked and shockingly presented on a sticky glob of compote which was excessively buttery. The Assiette of pork suffered from pork cheeks that had been braised and reheated to the point they had developed a crust, lost moisture and had an almost unpleasant taste, the crackling was wet and the dehydrated pork belly was an off-putting colour and bland. The mash was sticky and grainy but the tenderloin and truffle jus were beautiful. The tart tartin was for me the dish of the day but the grape sorbet had large chunks of ice through it. Not a lot to inspire a return visit.

We have dined regularly at the restaurant for many years and the food and service have always been first class. The service is second to none. When back in Glasgow, we always book a reservation. Keep doing what you are doing!

The service was ok but very impersonal and sterile which was disappointing, we did not feel overly welcome or relaxed. The food was ok but to be honest we were expecting something special and this just was not delivered. The Rabbit was ok but uninspireing and whilst the steak was very well cooked again nothing jumped off the plate, in all very expensive and no wow factor that you would expect from a restaurant of this quality. Bill was £130 for two of us which I felt was over priced. We spent £140 the previous evening in another restaurant and walked away very happy as the meal was amazing. But this one was def lacking ... ‘sterile’ is the best description of the evening.

Outstanding dining experience- we went for pre theatre and staff were attentive to our time constraints yet totally committed to ensuring we had the best time. Food quality was Michelin level and wine was fantastic. Chef was visible in the dining room mingling with guests. Superb.
