I was quite disappointed with our visit to your restaurant. When I booked, I had quite a specific request for a more rectangle or square table for 13 rather than the standard longer thin less social arrangement. I was assured that this was possible and I booked the restaurant based on this assurance. When we arrived the table was just a regular long, thin table set for 13 and I was told it wasn’t possible to have the arrangement I requested and I shouldn’t have been told it could be done!! (Without really any sort of apology). It was a Wednesday evening and no other people sat down to eat on the area we were allocated (the balcony) so I’m quite sure the table arrangement I requested would not have been a problem at all if the staff had really wanted to meet our request!!! The food from the set menu was very average with both the lamb and the salmon from the main meal choices over cooked. Lamb is supposed to be served pink but this was well done and very fatty. The lemon posset didn’t taste of lemon and it had a rather nasty after taste. A very expensive evening having booked a restaurant based on the assurances of our specific table arrangement that didn’t deliver and not very good food at all. A real shame and very disappointing!! I won’t be booking this restaurant again for my team events.

I love the Metropolitan, the food is so good and I am a fussy vegetarian and I always have lots to choose from. The waiting staff are so friendly and love to get involved with our dining party taking pics for us and making sure we get seated in the bar area after we have eaten even when they are busy the still go that extra mile. The cocktails are amazing and rainbow shots supereb value .

Shocking wait for our drinks order and an even worse wait of approximately 40 minutes for our starter! A party of 60 is a poor excuse for such a long wait. Further issues with a flat beer! We won't be back.

I couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our Retirement Party. The Private Dining room was simply perfect and we were well looked after by the waiting staff. I will certainly be choosing and recommending Metropolitan in the future. Thank You!

Following some initial slow service in getting our welcome drinks, we enjoyed a wonderful three course meal in beautiful surroundings. The service was quick to pick up and our table of 14 left very happy, all eager to return.

Excellent service from the staff both during the day when I had to drop balloons and cakes off through to the staff in the evening. Special thanks to Cara who went above and beyond to make it a special night for my Daughter Carly's 18th Birthday.

Great service for a really good price! Came for a hen weekend lunch for 12 people and the restaurant made personalised menus for the meal, there was a great choice of food and no one had to pick food in advance (made it easier for us to organise). Couldn’t fault the staff on the day and the atmosphere was perfect. Would definitely come back if I was organising another big meal in Glasgow!

Afternoon tea was poor. We asked for no egg sandwiches and still got them anyway. Scone and buns seemed like they were bought from tesco and cut up. No butter for scone. All round poor show. Sandwiches were reasonable but not good value for money at all. A childrens festival was on in the courtyard which was incredibly noisy and awful and we were seated right at the balcony. Had to ask to move which was fine. Not the restaurants fault, but maybe would have been polite to ask us first if we wanted to sit there or be seated somewhere quieter. Would not recommend. Seems like a place for a drink after work and nothing else. Very half assed.

I thought my glass of wine was quite pricey at £7.50 for a house wine.
