About The Finnieston
The Finnieston is a seafood restaurant and gin cocktail bar in the Finnieston area of Glasgow, with an emphasis on only freshly sourced Scottish seafood, complimented by a collection of bespoke draught beers and fine champagnes, with a seasonally changing cocktail menu showcasing the carefully sourced spirits from across the globe.
We had a really bad experience here for this booking. Service was good from the waitresses. Starters were ok. We then ordered 6 langoustines that were more like goey paste rather that peeling put a nice prawn. Sent them back and the chef agreed they were not right. Never seen anything like it. My partner had half a lobster ate the tail and when she removed the meat from the claw it was raw.....we were disgusted. To make matters worth the chef agreed he didn’t cook the claw for long enough. It’s a seafood restaurant and we don’t know how long to cook the lobster? Really poor guys. Meal still cost me £50 for a couple of drinks and two small starters. Not great.
Very enjoyable evening with friends, good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Staff were very nice.
I would highly recommend The Finnieston & would certainly visit again when I’m in Glasgow. I had the sea bass which was stunning, this is the 1st time I’ve had fish cooked as well as my granny cooked fish (she was an excellent cook, she’s the reason most restaurants underwhelm). The fish came with salad, this was just a handful of leaves, so a a little disa, the chips where delicious & hot. My friend had the fish chips & mushy peas, again the fish was superb as were the chips, the portion of mushy peas was small, so maybe the vegetable portion of the main meals needs improving. Dessert was disappointing, I had the panna cotta, on the menu it sounded great, almond coconut, rhubarb, what’s not to like, the panna cotta had to much gelatine so was more like a firm milk jelly (tasted good) and I certainly could not detect the rhubarb & as the puds are not that cheap I expected a little more of a taste sensation. I would suggest simplifying your desserts, flavour over complexity. The service was very good, the staff are very knowledgeable & attentive, making the dinning experience feel special. The wine is priced similarly to other local restaurants, the cocktails & gins are a little over priced. All in all, the best fish I have ever eaten & an experience I am keen to repeat, just sort the desserts please.
My first time eating here. Lovely atmosphere, attentive but not intrusive service . Nice wine and great food .
First time at The Finneston. Starters were great, mains good, chose wrong in sweets. Lemon meringue pie was deconstructed, it was good but I would have preferred it to be the old fashioned way. Service was good although at times a little slow. Table had to be given back at 9 and we would have been pushed to make this deadline. Luckily there had been a cancellation and we were able to keep the table until closing. Good selection of alcohol.
Good gluten free options.
A wider menu for vegetarians would be helpful. especially for non fish eaters.
Although the restaurant was very nice in arranging a candle for a dessert to celebrate a birthday, I can't say it was a pleasant experience overall. When we sat, we were told they needed the table back in 1hr45min. Although we were not told that when we booked, no problem. We can certainly eat in that amount of time. What followed was laggy service throughout, and then a stroppy 'we need this table back.' and then 'We REALLY need this table back.' Well, then you REALLY should have had the kitchen get our meals to us in decent time. Any normal person can have three courses comfortably in that amount of time. To be treated as if we were lazing around and then pushed off the table, when we ordered as soon as asked and ate as soon as food was presented, was poor. The food was good, and nice cocktails, so we might go back, but I'll remind them of this experience if they try to set a time limit on the table again.
Really enjoyed our evening
Good food in a nice place with pleasant service.
Unfortunately the duck was rather cold and tough. The seats are so high your feet dangle above the floor and your legs go dead.
Fried fish about 90% thick batter , absolutely awful We also ordered sea bass which was barely fllleted and therefore inedible Really poor all round
Lovely atmosphere. Very busy but still had great service And food arrived quickly. Food was incredible and terrific value for money!!
Lovely food and lovely staff. The Gigha oyster in Bombay Saphire was like being by the sea - perfect - thank you
Food and drinks great, as before, but we had to wait a VERY long time for our martinis/G&T , which eventually arrived when we were half way through our starters. They were worth waiting for however.
We went to experience local fish & chips and it was delicious. Also the staff was really kind. We can just simply recommend!
First visit to The Finnieston. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was lovely but feel it is over priced especially as portions are not that large.
Best part of the menu was unfortunately unavailable. Waitress very efficient.
Delicious food in lovely environment
Great food, fabulous staff, beautiful restaurant! Scallops were utterly divine!
A second visit in just 4 weeks as the food is so good. We booked in advance on-line and arrived at a packed restaurant. But shown immediately to our table. Friendly and responsive service. Food and drinks just as good second time around even though the place was heaving. A real find. Emphasis upon very fresh, beautifully prepared food rather than pretentious setting or fancy surroundings. A lovely gusto-pub feel throughout.
First visit here. Definitely be back. Oysters with the whisky spray were excellent. Wine prices reasonable. A little gem of a place.
Great food and helpful staff
Best meal we had in Glasgow
Lovely food, great service.
