Great food and service was fantastic. The girl behind the bar provided a great service, very friendly and helped out with suggestions and information. Very attentive in regards to room temperature and music volume levels. Buffet food was delicious even though we massively over ordered. Great value for money for a private booking.

We have visited The Raven on many occasions on our visits to Glasgow and class it as one of our must do destinations venue wise. Unfortunately on this visit we found that standards had slipped. Menu changes and poor service did not make for a happy visit or it seemed for the other tables around us. We asked for a damp cloth 4 times after an unfortunate incident with a blocked sauce bottle nozzle which exploded over my companion and also the lady at the next table only to be told there is kitchen roll on the table and then twice offered more cutlery. We ended up using the lemon hand wipes to attempt at clearing the mess up. The ribs came dry and without coleslaw as stated on the menu and initially waited more than 10mins before we requested could we have a drink. Like most tables that got seated after ourselves we noticed after the food/drink order was placed and recieved at table you got forgotten about. It was a sad ending to an otherwise enjoyable weekend in Glasgow. The Raven was always our final destination to journey home with a full stomach and good service. Better venues are available

We had a great night and glad we chose the Raven. Staff were very friendly and helpful from the minute we got in. The food was absolutely delicious - every meal was different and we all enjoyed it. We then moved downstairs and got a table and the atmosphere was brilliant as was the music - lot of old school. It was a good crowd, not too young for us. Stayed most of the night. I would definitely go back and have already recommended the food to others. Thanks to Emmett and the team for help in the booking and for their service on the night.
