Overall, we enjoyed our pre-theatre meal but we had a long wait. We arrived at 6.15 and had to wait till 7.00pm before our food arrived.

This was my first experience of the new menu. I felt the new menu was limited. I have scored food three stars but to be fair the presentation and quality of food was very good. I am a regular at the Tron so I am sure I will get used to the new menu. The old menu was still displayed when I searched online - it was only when we arrived we wee presented with the new menu.

We had a nice lunch with interesting selections from the menu. The staff member who looked after us was very helpful and accommodating. The initial table offered was outside the rehearsal area and very noisy so we were able to find a quieter spot that suited us better. Good food, nice people, casual but efficient atmosphere. All good

Food was really nice, but the menu is extremely limited. Good value.
Our only disappointment was that our son's pizza was brought out at least ten minutes after our food.
This was explained by the server and he did apologise.
I would still come back again

The food was absolutely excellent, and very good value for money. Our server was a little inexperienced, and therefore some items were missed from the order. However, she was clearly new and just learning – she was very pleasant, so no complaints.

The tapas type dishes were the best food I have had in a long while, potions were larger than I expected and imaginative, very good value.

Food was great & service was friendly although quite slow. Restaurant & toilets were cold. Also disappointed to get charged over 10% service charge without being informed especially when half of our group were young kids. We would've tipped anyway but nice to be told a service charge has been added. Despite this, will definitely be back as the food was really good

Lovely beer, food, service.
So good to find somewhere central Glasgow that cooks food from scratch. Real hand cut chips with fish on the main menu x

The reason for this review is as a result of the following:
- the noise level made it difficult to hold a conversation
- the smoked duck breast main course was tough/dry
- I was presented with the bill without having requested same, despite still waiting for our coffees

We really enjoyed our experience and intend to return soon. The lighting in the dining area could probably be improved: my impression was it was dim, rather than cosy. There is a large bar in the room - perhaps if that were lit it would improve the ambience

We booked this as a pre theatre meal. The quality and taste of the food was excellent and the food was served hot.

The service from the various waiters /waitresses was very attentive but not overbearing. They were all very polite.

The food was served in good time with just the right amount of time between courses.

It was good value for money.

We would definitely go back again. It will be interesting to see how often the menu is updated.

Good service, average food, tasty pudding. We were only given the pre-theatre menu, we requested to see the a la carte, waitress took a while to bring it and took too long to take our orders. I had the fish & chips - fish was lovely, chips were burnt. Disappointingly average overall.

Booked myself and my daughter in for a meal on Saturday. Had previously looked online and seen a fabulous pre theatre menu but it did not state the times or days. So we just assumed it was on all the time. We attended the Tron Bar for our 5pm booking and were seated at our table. Waiting staff were excellent and all the staff were very friendly. However, we were informed on seating that the pre theatre menu is only available when there is a theatre show on. There was no show on that day. So we only had the bar menu to choose from. This was OK but we were really interested in the pre theatre menu. That is why I have given our review 3 stars.

My friend and i ate here prior to going to the Bruno Mars concert at Glasgow Green. Great location for pre concert food and drinks in a nice atmosphere. Special thanks to the staff who gave us a lovely Irish Coffee and biscuits to celebrate my friends birthday - it was much appreciated.

Not eaten at Tron for over a year. Had their pre-theatre menu. Food was superb- especially the prawn and rice starter. Relaxed atmosphere, attentive waiting staff. Cannot fault this venue at all , it is the genuine hidden gem which people in Glasgow are unaware of.
Forget the popular steakhouse on St Vincent street and come here !!

Fabulous food in lovely surroundings! The menu was extensive but we both asked for small changes to main courses which was done with good grace. Both waiters attentive and knowledgeable about food provenance. Delicious flavour combinations and the rum and pineapple upside down cake was to die for. We ate there as we were attending a play but would gladly go back just to work our way through the menu. And the wine list.... Thank you!

Wonderful meal. I would say exceptional for the cost. The East Coast IPA was very good also.

Only minor criticism is that they should serve peas with their beer battered fish not pea puree. Both of us took one taste of the puree and never touched it again The only reason it didn't get 5 stars for the food.
