Had heard rumours of the venue south of the river and eventually managed there for lunch - what a delight. The main menu is full of delightful choices for each course and the fresh seafood is the main draw. Fresh delicious seafood cooked and served by attentive staff. A return visit is a must and whilst the extensive wine list may appeal to some, their extensive selection of gins is also worth a look.

Our West End establishment opened in 2017, brining La Lanterna's Italian food to Glasgow's West End. We have great passion for what we do, and take pride in our classic food & first-class service.
Dinner on Saturday night was the biggest anti-climax ever having looked forward to it all week.Unfortunately it was me who picked this restaurant for our Saturday night dinner, something Iâll probably never be allowed to live down now.My partner and I arrived, both male - but not like that should matter in this day and age - made ourselves known as we weren't greeted, to then be looked at with confusion as if we shouldn't have been there. Seated and left to our own devices (for a good while), without anyone to take an order for drinks and in the meantime whilst we waited patiently, 3 other tables all of whom arrived after we did, were seated and served with drinks on their tables too. Not a good start to the evening and certainly not giving that good first impression which we were expecting (shop front appears to be a perfect facade - masking what's really hiding inside).Finally someone came to serve us, asking what we would like to eat; reminding them we would like a drink first however yes we have waited so long we now know what we are ordering to eat too. Probably best to order whilst we have the opportunity because who knows if they would've came back? Furthermore, with impatience profoundly growing on us, we werenât prepared to wait any longerâ¦Starters arrived, nothing spectacular, still no drinks on the table. Starters finished and still no drinks to be seen - adding to the disappointment, and thirst.Eventually our first drink arrived followed by the main course. Very bland and lacking flavour, could honestly pick up a better pasta dish in ready meal form at the local supermarket.Didn't finish the meal, with no one approaching us during the course asking how the food was. Although, once the forks were put down and napkins strewn over the plates, I think the member of staff who took our dishes away could see the look of dismay on our faces after what had been - lightly put - a terrible experience. Offered a free cocktail each, I assume because of how blatantly obvious it was that we had been neglected throughout the meal? We were keen to leave however "no its fine" said several times over, wasn't convincing enough or accepted as an answer and we were egged on to stay for that one last drink. Still payed the full price for the bill though with the amount emphasising how not worth it the meal really was. Seriously grudged it and felt cheated, with Glasgow having an abundance of beautiful Italian eateries that actually are worth the money. Named Scotland's best Italian restaurant 2016? It is clear to see why that award hasn't been upheld to date. Seems like this restaurant is more style than substance?Ultimately I won't be back and certainly wouldn't recommend to anyone, maybe would to my worst enemy though.Thanks :)We're incredibly concerned and saddened to read your review and learn just how disappointed you were during your visit. We truly pride ourselves on giving our guests the most authentic, comfortable and enjoyable Italian experience here in the West End, so we couldn't be more disheartened that we let you down so drastically on this occasion. We're incredibly sorry for the continued delays in service you experienced during your meal - this is absolutely not reflective of our service so we'll be investigating this fully with the staff working that night to identify why this could have happened and why so many things slipped through the net. You absolutely shouldn't have had to chase up on drinks or remind our staff of anything, and for this we apologise. When you informed us that you did not enjoy your meals, we did try to address this with you both on the evening with the offer of the complimentary drinks, which at the time seemed to be received positively, so we're further sorry that we picked this up completely incorrectly. No other issues were mentioned to us at this time, so we are disappointed to now learn that this wasn't the case, as we would have appreciated the chance to be able to address this while you were still at the restaurant.We realise that the whole experience has left a very bad taste in your mouths, but we do hope we can stress that this is not indicative of the true La Lanterna experience you should have had. After winning our first award in 2017 (Best Newcomer), just after opening we've been lucky enough to be nominated once again for other awards in 2018, and this year have been nominated for Best Restaurant and Best Pasta at the upcoming Italian Awards, which we feel truly reflects out high standards.Please do not hesitate to email us on [email protected] if there's any further feedback you'd like to provide, we'd be very appreciative of it.Thank you once again for sharing, and sincere apologies for your unsatisfactory visit.Best wishes,La Lanterna

The award-winning Gamba restaurant in Glasgow serves the best seafood available in its own unique style, and has established a formidable reputation for quality.
I have just got back from France where I ate three Dinners, all more expensive than The Gamba, but failing miserably to complete on taste and sophistication when compared with the dishes Derek the Chef Patron produces every time. No doubt I could find food even more special than The Gamba, but I would expect to pay a few hundred Euros for the experience, and then it would probably be full of pretence.The Gamba is still my favourite restaurant even though i have eaten in France for over 40 years. I cannot wait to come back in December.

In 2001 Brian Maule returned to Scotland to open his restaurant in the city centre of Glasgow, le Chardon d'Or. Since his return, he has successfully worked to build a reputation as one of Scotland's most prominent and accomplished chefs. He perfected his
Chardon D'Or is a Glasgow institution. Purple velvet banquettes, thistle blinds and crisp, white linen tablecloths.Our welcome was warm and friendly.We started lunch with an amuse bouche which was an uninspiring square of duck terrine served with a rich, cinnamon, spiced apricot chutney. For starters, the goats cheese was presented as 3 crispy delicious balls in Panko breadcrumbs. Unfortunately the accompanying salad was old and wilted. This was mentioned to the server who said that he would inform the chef but there was no feedback from the kitchen.Fortunately our chicken main made up for the preceding courses. The perfectly cooked chicken had a lovely light jus and was served with a hearty plateful of winter veg including turnip, celeriac and roast potatoes.Our dessert was a yummy creme brulee rich with vanilla.To finish we had strong and smooth black coffees served with excellent handmade chocolates.There is a good wine list with several wines by the glass. The wines are principally French with prices starting around Â£30.Overall we enjoyed our lunch although it was not perfect.
