The food and the service was great for a busy place. Only took a star off as nothing really jumped out at me on the pre concert menu. Was not made clear on booking that a la carte menu would be unavailable so found it hard to pick something. Ended up with some prawns to start and just a salami pizza, they were nice but just a bit of a disappointment

When we walked in the background noise was overbearing. Not so bad at seat. Waiting staff efficient but need to learn to smile. Starters were fine but the main course was tasteless. Wouldn't go back.

Lovely place, food amazing and served quickly. Hubby had beetroot risotto which sounds awful but it tasted great. Very quick service. Desserts a winner too so can’t fault the place.

Food and service was very good, the only 'issue' we found was being sat at the door and feeling the draft each time it was opened. If it hadn't been so busy we would have asked to move to another table.

Me and my cane in for dinner before we went to the Jamie Cullum concert! The staff were so lovely and very helpful! The service was brilliant, we only just ordered and had our starter within 10 minutes if that! Our waitress, who I unfortunately couldn’t get the name of, was more than helpful.
I highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back!

Opposite the campanile hotel and a few strides from the arena.

A perfect stop off for concert goers.

The set menu was perfect for all members of our party of four.

The ambiance was laid back, with low level lighting. Service was attentive.
They even played the music from the group whoes concert we were going too!

We would definitely use them again.

Booked online for early evening meal on a Wed before concert at Hydro, recommend booking in advance as very busy. Loved the fact they played the music of the gig most of the diners were going to see. Service was excellent, very fast and efficient. Starters were served approx 5 mins after ordering. Food faultless. Two of us had pate and prawns to start followed by a chicken dish and salmon dish for mains. Both meals tasty and adequate portion size. Bill for 2 for 2 courses, 2 glasses wine and beer was £61. Would go back. Well organised and good experience.

Overpriced for a pre concert menu given that the food was basic...took over an hour to get main course....food was luke warm...very disappointing and we will not be back. They are using their location to rip customers off. This was the worst restaurant I have been to in a number of years. Very disappointed.

Pre-Theatre menu was only one offered at 6pm when we entered. Starters looked pre-plated upon arriving at hte table and were very ordinary. Main courses were OK. Tables were very close together and we were seated on the entrance passageway just inside the door so lots of traffic to and from the toilets and the door was letting in quite a cold draught. Service was fast but overall not a relaxing and enjoyable experience, so we would not return.

Unknown to me when booking, it was a fixed 2 course for £19.95 with no option of a la carte or mains only.
The starter came literally within 60 seconds of ordering (chilli prawns). I thought it was a mistake and the order was for another table, but it wasn’t.
The prawns were luke warm and the oil they were swimming in was tasteless and lacked zero chilli or garlic hit.

As soon as I started to make my complaint to the server, she replied without putting words in her mouth “Is it terrible?”.
The freshly made one was night and day.

I understand the need for quick turnarounds to accommodate shows at the hydro, but forcing you into 2 courses with stale kept-warm food is unacceptable. The servers handled it well as they must deal with this every day. No doubt the general manager will respond with “we are making improvements” or “the issues encountered that day are being resolved”.
Don’t be greedy and cash in on the Hydro.

We ordered from the pre-concert menu & there was a good balance of choices. The service began very good but as it got busier we had to get staff’s attention for more drinks & the bill. That was to be expected due to the restaurant filling up for the evening bookings. Still the staff remained calm, polite & did come & apologise for the wait.
But the best part of our experience was the food, it was very good. I chose a chicken dish which was cooked perfectly & was scrumptious.
I would recommend booking & it is worth dining here if you are staying nearby or visiting the SSE Hydro. Good value for the price too.

I have been before and enjoyed the meal, the staff were lovely and helpful. unfortunateley my wife had to send her meal back, the Pork was so tough she could not cut through it, the Manager was very friendly and took the meal off the bill, he did offer to replace but we did not have the time to wait.

Big thanks to Anthony for sorting out my parking and for removing the drinks on our bill after the table next door had a ‘bit’ of an accident
There honestly was no need but appreciated
Always visit when we are at a concert as it’s so convenient for Hydro
See you again next concert
Food fabulous as usual

Staff were lovely. It was a concert night so the restaurant was busy but that’s no reason to serve cold food. My lasagne was cold in the middle. The prawn starter was cold too

Don’t usually expect too much from a restaurant near concert venues. However, La Rotunda bucks the trend! Great tasty food, good portion sizes and good value for money. Special kudos to the staff however as they were friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. My new venue of choice now when attending a concert or show! Thanks guys ...
