Our waiter Robert was very helpful & friendly, the food was lovely although I did find the £25 supplement for a fillet steak a bit excessive! The steak was nice but not worth the amount I paid. Robert was very attentive to our needs & our glasses were constantly topped up.

Enjoyed a late family lunch for 5 persons. Attentive service from waiter, starters served promptly, mains ...steak choices very good but Chef's Special a little underwhelming, although good portion sizes.

Lunchtime lacked an ambience but would reserve judgement until visited for an evening meal. Overall, when compared to other comparable Glasgow restaurants, average rather than a stand-out.

Absolutely horrible. Walked in on a Friday night. Music was blasting beyond the nightclubs surrounding the venue. Place was absolutely dead which should have been the first sign to leave. Yer man asked us what we wanted for drinks and we said sparkling water and a glass of Pinot Grigio for myself. Yer man brought over an entire bottle of wine. Staff were laughing and joking like they were on holiday. Sad thing is that we are on holiday and we had to find another last minute place to book for dinner. Shameful, disgusting, and they should be terribly embarrassed. Never again.

Went to this restaurant as we had received a voucher from a friend as a gift. It was appalling the overall quality of the food was poor the salad starter consisted of iceberg lettuce and somewhat stake halloumi. My Salmon main course came with a strange smelling seafood bisque and my daughters pizza was clearly from a local bargain frozen food chain. My husbands main course came with pan fried ice berg lettuce and frozen peas. The location is central but the ambiance poor Phoenix nights meets nouveau riche. Don’t go even if you have a voucher!

As always, the food, service, comfort and cleanliness was of a high standard. The menu was well chosen, with fish, chicken, meat and vegetarian dishes, all of which appeared interesting. The only drawback was the noise level, but perhaps the date we decided on was not the best, due to end of term 'straightfaes'.

We had a lovely lunch on Thursday 13th June,the food was excellent and the staff were fabulous,only thing that let’s you down is your furnishings are a little tired and need updating.Also it would be a good idea for the reception staff to direct customers to the lift,after two flights of stairs I was pretty tired out as I have health problems.

First visit to The Grill Room - it was a deal of 4 x course and glass of prosecco which we were given by our sons for our anniversary. The food, prosecco and vibe were all of the highest quality and the deal was great value for money. Will definitely be back.

Anniversary dinner. We got married here 4 years ago and love to return. We opted for the 2 courses for 39 pound menu. Good value for money as this comes with a bottle of house wine. Starters were lovely and good portion size. The salmon was nice however not served with veg or potatoes and I didn't order a side as was not aware. The salmon was cooked well however I felt overpowered by the sauce. The special was beef teriyaki with rice. Lovely taste but portion could have been bigger. Over all the place is lovely with great service. We will be back next year.

This was our second visit to the grill room. Great food. Attentive but unobtrusive service. Loved the chopped salad. And had salmon for mains. For some reason I assumed it cam with rice ( which it didn’t) which would have been good with it

This was our first visit to the Grill Room but it won’t be our last, first contact was the two young ladies at the reception desk who were very pleasant and checked our booking then gave us directions to the restaurant where we again were met by pleasant staff who again checked our booking and then showed us to our table.
The Restaurant is nice, bright , Spacious without giving the feeling of being in a large room and very stylish with large windows looking out onto Royal Exchange Place.
The staff were very pleasant and professional, we were on a “Promotional Menu” for a four course meal with Glass of Prosecco.
The menu choice was varied however there was no Steak Choice ( Not A Problem) having made our selection we waited with anticipation, I will not bore anyone with a full description of our meal other than to say all the food had been cooked with care, was nicely presented and most importantly was delicious .
I would have no hesitation in recommending this Restaurant for a nice evening out.

Had a voucher for 4 course meal with prosecco. Was a lovely night, the staff were brilliant. The starters were delicious, the mains were ok but I had the sole with tagliatelle and found the pasta really dry and bland. For dessert I had a cheese board, the grapes were wrinkled and black, the cheese had hard edges as if it had all been sitting out for too long. Really disappointed with that. Overall was a nice night though.
