Review by Emma Mykytyn of Food and Drink Glasgow:
4.5/5
The Finnieston is deservedly known for its wide range of gins, however it also has a immense array of other spirits to keep you busy on a cold night. A cold night it was. We huddled around the welcoming fire and saw that as it was St Andrews Day there was a special on offer. £30 for four courses as well three drinks, Hendricks Cocktail, Monkey Shoulder cocktail as well as a dram of Balvenie to end. Being very prudent and stereotypically Scottish, we jumped in for this offer. The menu generally is centered around fish and tonight's special menu had the addition of some pheasant as a course. The first course was paired with a Florist cocktail: Hendricks Gin with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and some cucumber. Refreshing whilst waiting for our soup. We started with a clam and barley bree, ideal for a cold November night. A proper winter soup with vegetables and a gaggle of clams to keep it interesting. Next course was pan fried West Coast Mackerel with pickled neeps, mace bon bons and skirlie crisps. Crispy skin to the mackeral and some unusual pickled neeps to add a contrast. The mace bon bons were fluffy, but very little taste of mace. The second drink of the night was a Monkey Shoulder Apple Cocktail, refreshing however we have no idea what was in it, but it was good! Ayrshire Pheasant breast with kale clap shot in a juniper jus arrived soon. Moist Pheasant and we felt extremely healthy after eating our kale clapshot. Unfortunately again the flavours failed to completely come through in the jus. A tasty jus, but limited in juniper taste. Finally! Quince Crumble and Clootie Ice Cream with a Balvenie dram on the side. A perfect comfort food course, Whisky and a gloopy pudding. We were stuffed by the end of this and very happy. Our meal was £60 exactly for four courses each and three drinks. a bottle of wine. Service was friendly and helpful, seating was comfortable, ambiance perfect and toilets were clean although the hand dryers get in the way every time you move in the cubicle.

Perhaps one of the more expensive fish and chips we’ve had but couldn’t fault anything! Lovely batter, and a roaring fire! Would definitely return

Food was very greasy. Booked a table for dinner with family as I had been before and very much enjoyed it but this time the table was near the bar and the main entrance making it noisie, cramped and drafty.

We had an amazing evening at The Finnieston. The food was delicious, the best scallops and sole we have ever tasted. Service was perfect. And to top it off, the dog wasn’t left out either, so we were able to enjoy a fully relaxed evening.

Great food, attentive staff, nice setting, though we were situated next to the kitchen and outside door which was always being used by staff which would shudder every time they used it.

30% off food in January is incredible. Even with a few cocktails it still ends up cheaper than any of the chain restaurants, as the food is a thousand times better.

In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have booked a seafood restaurant for 27th December. No oysters, no mussels, limited wine list, and ‘fish of the day’ was rotten (clearly not caught the previous day or anywhere close). On the plus side, starters were great, as were the cocktails. But overall disappointed with our experience.

Wonderful and attentive staff. Delicious food generally although the sweetbreads left a lot to be desired - why batter them?

Were seated in the back of the restaurant beside the back door which was cold and we were neglected as the bar was busy. Had to ask for things multiple times. Not up to the usual standard we have found before at The Finnieston.
