I was really disappointed with my recent visit to Gamba. It has long been a favourite of mine, but I will not be rushing back any time soon. From the rather frosty "welcome" - a smile can go such a long way - it just didn't get better. The food was OK, but not anything like as good as I remember and certainly not as good as some of the other excellent eateries in the area. There was absolutely no atmosphere, and it was a little cool. So I'm afraid it's now off my list of recommendations for a reliable lunch spot.

My husband and I had a fantastic evening at Gamba. The food and wine were delicious and the service we received was faultless. My husband received a parting gift as we left, for his birthday, which was a lovely surprise and finished our evening off on a high note. Thank you very much to everyone who made our evening so wonderful!

It was a special occasion and and my brother and his wife and my partner and I had a lovely evening. We were well-looked after and really enjoyed our meal. It was a real change to enjoy first-rate cooking that didn't didn't know-tow to the gods of foam, spherification and fussification. We'll be back.

My only negative comment is that I received an e-mail the night before the booking asking me to confirm the booking. It was fortunate I was still at home and was able to confirm the booking. My wife and I live in the Highlands of Scotland and were coming down to Glasgow for the weekend. If this booking had been on our second night I would not have seen the email and I assume the booking would have been cancelled by you. I think you need to look at this. I assume not all your customers are from Glasgow? That would have been nice turning up at your restaurant having booked it and then been turned away because I had not confirmed. Fortunately that did not happen which was luck more than anything. By the way the food was excellent as the service.

We dined last night at GAMBA as a celebratory graduation dinner for my mum. I mentioned this upon booking and we were greeted by two complimentary glasses of fizz as a congratulations from the staff for my mum which was incredibly touching. The food was outstanding and the pre-theatre offers a great selection and value for money at 2 course for £22. Staff were incredibly friendly and attentive providing 5 star service. They made the evening that more special for my mum and I and for that I thank you for an incredibly memorable experience. We will definitely be back in the near future.

GAMBA impressed me right in front of the door by their excellent service. Staff hospitality and their service mind were perceivable. When it came to the food, I could tell that every dish was cooked to perfection without too much seasoning that would drawn the natural taste of the main ingredients (shellfish cocktail and seared king scallop in my case). I was aware that GAMBA did their best to keep the food warm before serving. However, my comment is that they would make sure the temperature convinces the feeling of freshly-cooked-directly-from-the oven/pan/pot. For dessert, I went for special dessert of the day which was frozen chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream, honeycomb, and whipped cream. The cake was very nice with just perfect sweetness but not quite for the salted caramel ice cream, as I found it too sweet and a wee bit salty to complement the delicious cake. Overall, I very much enjoyed my experience at GAMBA and would strongly recommend those who are looking for a place for decent seafood to visit once they are in Glasgow. Thank you GAMBA and keep it up!

Lovely meal somewhat degraded by argumentative and noisy customers next to us who insisted on debating Brexit at a volume commensurate with a jumbo jet taking off. Next time we will elect for a more secluded seat.

Fantastic lunch with my husband for his birthday. Food, amazing , as usual but the service was extraordinarily welcoming and friendly. Really made our day special. We come here every six months or so but are determined to visit more often. Terrific, thank you .
