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.

Unfortunately the menu was limited and there was no atmosphere as the other tables were empty. The soup was too spicy to eat but this was removed from the bill. Unfortunately a disappointing visit. Will only use as a bar as too many other excellent restaurants in the vicinity.

Gorgeous surroundings and food. We’d made the booking for a birthday treat, with some friends flying up from down south, especially for the meal, so it was extremely embarrassing when, after our main courses, we were told VERY bluntly, that we had 7 minutes to drink up and leave the table, and we’re then asked if we wanted any more drinks! I realise that the restaurant has a turnaround period for tables, but that was like a slap in the face, after spending a lot of money on food and drink, and hardly the great and friendly ‘Scottish welcome’ that was expected! What a shame, as, after a delicious meal, we were all left with a bad taste in our mouths and headed elsewhere to continue our evening. Disappointing.

45minutes for service delivery was a long time to wait. However...the food was worth the wait! Just don't be in a rush when you go!

I chose the lobster and i ended up very sick. I actually think it may have been undercooked.

We went to this restaurant for a small family celebration and could not be happier with our choice. The atmosphere of this old reformed pub is lovely and very cozy. The food was amazing (best fish and chips I have ever tried!), although the wine menu was very limited and quite expensive for the what it offered. We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend anytime!

We had a delicious meal on Saturday, actually one of the nicest meals we have had for a while. Only thing negative was the table was tiny. Other than that it was a great evening.

Very friendly staff, though I felt that our table was set upon. I was meeting a friend I hadn't seen in awhile & was wrapped in conversation, but were constantly being interrupted. The portions were sizeable & of fine quality. We sat at the windows facing the street, the benches we rigid & a tight fit. I would gladly return.

Food was delicious but let down by slow service, wrong orders and sides coming after finished meal. Nice staff but either not enough of them or disorganised kitchen. Really enjoy the food and atmosphere so hope you fix the service issues soon!
