Despite having a booking there was a long queue at the door which took about 10-15 min. The variety and presentation of the buffet has declined since our last visit a few years ago. The service was very slow and coffees ordered took about 25 min to arrive. The food was good but the overall experience was certainly not worth the cost.

The Glass Brasserie is our Christmas Eve "go to" for our family celebration overlooking the magnificent QVB right next door. The staff are experts in their field , everything is never too much trouble and the food is magnificent. I is quite pricey for a group however it is worth the money. I also recently attended an Opera evening in the Glass Brasserie which was superb. I'm a big fan xx

I booked Glass for my partners Birthday as I wanted to go somewhere special. Glass almost received top scores from me, but there was one minor let down. The food and the setting was excellent, as was the service. But the relaxed sportswear that some dinners were wearing let the standard of Glass slip. I would like to Glass improve the dress standards, especially where there other good quality restaurants t choose from close by. That being said, we had the best table in the house and a perfect evening.

I went to Glass for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised with what great value my meal was. I ordered the matcha savoury pancakes with avocado and smoked salmon. The pancakes were amazingly fluffy. It was nice to try matcha in a savoury dish too - it worked well.

Food and service was impeccable. Best oysters I've ever had. Meal sizes were surprisingly decent where other quality restaurants might skimp out a bit, not here. Made it all the more satisfying. If I had to give a criticism it would only be that the tables were close to each other but was probably more noticeable due to the fact that the couple next to us were quite pungent.

We came here for a birthday celebration - the service and food was impeccable. Will definitely dine here again. It was a shame we didn't get to see Luke Mangan himself but we did manage a glimpse of head chef, Peter Cassidy. Every meal was presented so beautifully and the services added to a fantastic evening all round! Thank you Glass Brasserie - look forward to dining here again soon.

Had the tasting menu which was great. Also saw Luke Mangan roaming the floor. Enjoyed all the courses, especially the crab omelette and lamb. The only slight let down was the dessert. 1 bad thing was that we were seated close to the kitchen and it was very smoky leaving all my clothes smelling of meat.

Good place for a quick lunch or a more relaxed after work drink and feed. I've been here a few times and on this occasion only had a short amount of time for lunch - service was very good, food arrived promptly. Nice setting and ambience and somewhere I will return to in the near future. Only downside is that it's quite expensive.
