Good selections of beers and veggie (actually vegan) food. Music was absolutely to our taste.

Love this place, great beer and great food. We go here before every Glasgow Warriors game and they never let us down. Booking is recommended, but also get The Raven loyalty card, 20% off the food every time, brilliant!

Overall the food was really good and there is an extensive selection to choose from. The one thing that didn’t work so well was the Mac n cheese toastie, it just seemed to end up far to soggy as it was covered in cheese sauce which ruined if slightly. Apart from that great service and good food.

Food is excellent very tasty and great price,hard to hear one another talk as the music is very loud although it was a Saturday.We had to wait a while for someone to eventually take our order and had to ask twice for things.Staff were kind.

I was there on Saturday afternoon with my friends for lunch and was looking forward to a nice change from my usual restaurant but I was very disappointed. The food was wasn't very nice we all didn't enjoy it, it was very soggy and no taste what so ever I actually felt a wee bit sick after trying to eat it. The cocktails are overpriced too ! Been a lot better and nicer places.... We were all disappointed at the Raven needless to say we won't be back.

The staff were so nice and held our table for us as one of our party was arriving from out of town and was delayed. They were very friendly and polite and service was very quick. The only criticism was that the nachos and nacho fries were very soggy and the range of starters isn't quite as good as a few months ago. The rest of the food and the cocktails were great and excellent value.

I have been to the Raven ever time I've been to Glasgow and always recommend it to others. Have always found the menu really decent, loads of veggie options and great value for money. But I was really disappointed this time. There were no rosemary salted fries which I love and really limited veggie choice compared with previously. Our food was also not very warm when it arrived! If you don't want burger or a sandwich it's a struggle to find anything. I understand its maybe changing with demand but it felt like more of a chain than previously which is what I previously found redeemable about it .

Hello, the venue is great, your upstairs area is just right for a get together with a good lively atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful and made sure that everything went off without a hitch. Thank you. Grant Cathcart, 13 September 2019

The new menu is sadly not quite as good as the old one. The move away from the bbq side of things is quite disappointing, it's still pretty good, just not quite as good as it was. Service, as always, was very good.

The bar was buzzing and atmosphere great we had to go to the bar for drinks even during our meal which was poor considering there was 12 of us. We also waited forever to order or food and had to balance dishes through hthe array of empty glasses left on our table. The burgers and popcorn chicken, sweet potato fries and halloumi were all lovely the prawns were not nice the mix of Cajun spice and tartare sauce questionable...the mac and cheese was very good but portion was too small for the price and most disappointing of all was the nachos which used to be the absolute highlight of a meal at Raven after returning them as stale the second batch came albeit warmer the tortillas were solid unless soaked in the lumpy cheese sauce/water mix with sour cream very unpleasant indeed. I hope improvements are made as this is a fab venue and I am sad to have to share such negative feedback.
