Beautifully presented. Not intimidating portion sizes, which suits me perfectly, but visitors of a larger appetite may be a bit underwhelmed. Those special potatoes with the lamb were amazing. Actually, I could’ve had an extra helping of those. Very nice personable service, not in your face but attentive. We’re visitors to Glasgow, doing a recce for university applications. I hope my daughter gets accepted so we can come again...

Number sixteen never fails, probably my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. Food is excellent, every wee bit of every course is fantastic. The ingredients are generally fairly straightforward, no pretence or overkill, just simple and perfect.

In addition, the staff are always absolutely lovely - again, just really friendly and down-to-earth people who go out of their way to ensure you have an excellent time.

This is the second visit for lunch in 3 months and I’ll be back! Travelled through from the east coast and it was definitely worth the journey.

My starter of cod brandade was delicious and my main of chicken was succulent- how come my chicken never tastes like this? Freshly shelled peas served with the chicken were fabulous. The hake my friend had was yummy too. Really can’t do justice to the quality of the food - high end dining at budget price!

Service was everything you’d want - attentive and friendly but never intrusive.

The restaurant is cosy and unpretentious clearly making food the star of the show.

I really can’t recommend No 16 highly enough.

We had a three course lunch there. Starter and dessert were lovely, however our main course pork belly half of it were over cooked with dry layer of tough meat. We made a comment on it, the waitress said will tell the chef, but we didn’t hear anything back. Perhaps we were too polite and tried to finish the dish without complaint earlier. But there were chance they could make it up to us after the main course, but nothing were offered nor response from the chef. So very disappointed with the overall experience. We had much better pork belly before and we know what freshly out of oven one tastes like.

We were with friends from Washington DC and wanted to take them to a Scottish restaurant. The menu did not disappoint and nor did the quality of the food. Service was excellent and our waitress was delightful. I particularly liked the scallops and they both had the lamb which they loved.

Excellent two course set lunch. Main truly delicious, creative ingredients, excellent flavours. I would normally go for a non veggie main, but chose the veggie one (roast tenderstem broccoli) and very pleased I did so. Nearly didn't go for the chocolate mousse as it came with mint ice cream which I am not normally that keen on. The mint ice cream was amazing, I choose my words carefully, the other two people I dined with agreed on this. Their meals were also excellent.

We took friends from New Zealand and this was the best meal we have ever had in Glasgow. The restaurant is small but that is not a problem. The service is attentive and friendly - exactly the right balance. The food was impeccably prepared and without exception delicious. For the first hour there was blessedly no muzack but then for some reason it started up - totally unnecessary and superfluous in such a cosy bistro.

But we are already looking forward to our next visit.

From the moment we showed up and were accommodated early for our reservation, I knew we found a gem. This restaurant served up great starters, main courses, desserts and had a pretty great wine selection. The service was spot on and really made us feel welcomed. Although we drove over from Edinburgh, we’d gladly do it nightly if we lived here.

Took a while to get menus, order being taken but it was full and busy. Food was very good but did think £60 for 2 with 1 course each and no alcohol was a bit expensive. Actually mains were priced adequately was probably £5 for side dishes that was expensive but size of dishes required them

Scallops were excellent - large , lightly cooked /nice sauce - followed by excellent lamb dish - very, very tasty. We drank the house white - sauvignon? , very good and a jug of excellent Carmenere Reserva . All good , but the deserts were I'm afraid unexciting , apart from a plate of cheese , which is quite expensive , but went well with last of the Carmenere. I would suggest sticking with starters and mains - definitley the house's best suits on our visit.

First time of visiting this cosy little restaurant. Have lived on Byres road and in the west end for many years and always knew of the good reputation the place had. I would say perhaps a touch over priced, but this is a family owned local business in an expensive rates area so happy to pay. Very friendly and warm atmosphere. Will definitely not leave it another umpteen years before visiting again.

Was a surprise visit to the restaurant to check out Paul Wallace's food. Had promised my son i would drop in next time we were through in Glasgow. The quality of food was excellent and presentation very good. What made the evening was the attentiveness and chats with the waitresses, they even assisted in organising the surprise at the end of the night. Will most certainly be back again. Thanks for a great evening.
