About The Gannet
The Gannet is an award winning Scottish independent bar and restaurant in the vibrant destination of Finnieston in Glasgow. Our menus celebrate the best of Scottish produce, dictated by the rhythms of the British seasons in a stripped back and relaxed setting. Opened in October 2013, we have won Best Restaurant Newcomer in the Catering in Scotland Excellence Awards 2014, Best Newcomer at The List Eating and Drinking Awards 2014, Awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand, Three AA Rosette's and have received reviews in The Guardian, The Sunday Herald and The Scotsman. Winner of the title 'Scottish Restaurant of the Year' at the AA Awards 2015.
Excellent food and cocktails. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and the food was Michelin star quality at a very reasonable price.
Great food although quite a small menu. A wee petit-four of tablet or chocolate would have been nice with coffee, as would some dressed salad with my scotch egg starter. Service was great - professional and courteous as well as friendly and welcoming without being intrusive.
Excellent meal and equally excellent service. I was particularly excited about the surprise creme brulee dessert (that wasn't on the menu). It was delicious, and I don't often enjoy desserts!!
Gannet still on top form! Caramel chocolate fondant still one of the best desserts you'll find anywhere.
The food and atmosphere were fantastic. However, the service was slow - our table was booked for 20:30 and we didn't manage to leave until just after 23:00.
Lovely food, relaxed but efficient and responsive service, very happy with table.
Lovely lunch. Very relaxing and service not hurried. Staff friendly
Food and service in unpretensious setting - perfect. Will return to this special restaurant next time we visit Glasgow.
Super evening, the tasting menu was really varied and well balanced, with some great combinations of taste, and beautifully presented. The premium wine flight was tremendous, great wines, very well paired. All the team were warm and welcoming. Great choice for a Michelin quality, indulgent and enjoyable dining experience in Glasgow
The tasting menu was a perfect balance of flavor and texture. I found the wine pairings delightful with each course.
Food was outstanding! Absolutely wonderful. Great staff who accommodated our need to delay our main course by 20 mins...still delivering it absolutely perfectly when we were ready. The only thing that would have made it better for me would be for G&Ts to be perfect served & in larger glasses, I hate the tall thin ones. Will definitely be back again (& again, & again...)!
Lovely meal with great service.
I have eaten at The Gannet a few times in the past and on previous occasions really enjoyed my experience (on these occasions I had opted to eat from the a la carte). Using foraged ingredients and seasonal produce is something I want to support (as I have a keen interest in this myself). This time our party chose to have the tasting menu, five of us the one with meat and fish and one of us the vegetarian menu. The food was on the whole tasty and in keeping with the restaurant’s brief and mission statement; the wine was good and not over priced; the crockery was interesting; the bread was well made; and the service was pleasant. However we all left feeling hungry and ordered food at a bar after. For £60 a head I feel that a customer should leave satisfied that they have been feed. There were long pauses between courses, none of which were substantial and the course order felt muddled. The second course in particular was small, insipid, and pretentious, the jelly tasted of little, it was an almost comedic portion of food. It followed a small smarter of two asparagus spears. I can see the validity of small, light, palette cleansing dishes in a tasting menu but not after a small course of vegetables, these should follow substantial courses. Again, the portion of cod for course three was also unwarrantedly small, although delicious. If we have such good produce in Scotland then let’s celebrate it by putting realistic portions on the plate, cod is relatively inexpensive. As a positive the Alexander’s were great but again I would like more. Course five was similar to course two, it felt like filler, was uninteresting and not note worthy, the cut berries were scarce. Course six (the dessert) was very good and well made, well done to the pastry chef this was of a high standard. Service was pleasant and in formal but lacked finesse, wine was spilled on a few occasions whilst pouring. Plates were set down at different angles in front of us and there was no regimentation to plate orientation (if a chef plates up a dish, they usually intended it to be set before a customer in a specific way), cloths used to carry plates on occasion came into contact with food. The hot dishes were introduced and served with very little enthusiasm. Also, when clearing courses words were put into our mouths “that was all delicious, thank you very much?” This feels strange, I am the one deciding whether a dish is delicious or not, it came across as assumptions and odd. We also felt uneasy about the presence of the member of staff in the blue shirt who I presumed to be the maitre-d. Although our table was in close proximity to his work station he made no attempt to welcome, interact, or even smile at us. I am left questioning where The Gannet really sees itself. It doesn’t feel like a celebration of Scottish produce and interesting foraged ingredients. As a group we agreed that the experience felt mean. There is good cooking present but due mainly to portion size it does not feel like you are experiencing these great ingredients to their fullest. We felt as a group that the portions should be bigger or the number of courses extended or one be noticeably bigger and feel like the focus of the meal. After this visit we would not be inspired to recommend The Gannet to anyone.
Excellent wine. Nice and delicate food. Good info from the somalier. But it is way to little food for two hungry men. After the meal(six courses) we headed over the street to eat croquettas on a spanish place.. I would make larger portions. And what is it with the foam instead of good sauce?
As usual, lovely food and good service. A little slower than in the past because the restaurant was full but it was a pleasure to see it busy.
Spring menu and wine were a delight and service was good and friendly.
To Peter & all his hardworking team in the kitchen and to all the front of house staff, many thanks for the wonderful food and service my partner Stephen and I received when we visited The Gannet on Tuesday May 8th. It truly was a wonderful evening. We were visiting from Ireland and we were glad to have had the chance to taste and savour fantastic food in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Many, many thanks from both of us, Jo Foley & Stephen Breslin.
We had the tasting menu with prestige matched wines. Fabulous start to finish. Great dishes, really well thought out and beautifully presented. Just the right size to allow enjoyment of all 6 courses. The match wines were extraordinary (my particular favourite was the white Beaujolais which hadn’t tried before). Have already recommended to friends.
Beautiful food, great service but expensive
The quality and taste of the food was fantastic. My girlfriend and I had the 6 course Spring menu, the mutton dish and the salted caramel fondant with tonka bean ice cream were stand out amazing. The portions are small but come together perfectly on the plate and the skills going into each one are apparent. I would reccomend this option if you are dining here as it lets you taste a variety of produce and dishes. We chose not to go with the accompanying wine package but it did look like good value, choosing to try some of the cocktails and beer selection instead. All round we are definitely planning on returning in the future to sample other dishes.
Lovely food in a relaxed setting
I love this restaurant. It is expensive and very much a treat but I am never disappointed when I go. Staff are very friendly and for the most part can answer questions about the food.
Unique flavours friendly knowledgeable staff! A true dining experience
We had such a wonderful dinner last night - the duck was exceptional. Fine dining in a lovely wee part of town.
