It was our first visit to The McMillan and we were looking forward to it based on a lot of the favourable reviews we had read.

We shared a meatloaf starter and a side of truffle mac n’ cheese. The meatloaf was so bland and lacking flavour; it was just a lump of meat and whilst the mac n’ cheese was lovely, there was absolutely no hint of truffle in it at all.

My main course however was delicious (mushroom stroganoff) and my husband enjoyed his steak however we had ordered a side of creamed spinach. We were so disappointed as again it was tasteless, just soggy spinach in a puddle of creamy coloured water. There is no way the spinach could’ve been drained before the cream was added and it just seemed really amateur. We feel that for the prices that the restaurant are charging, everything needs to be really spot on and sadly it wasn’t (although the lady looking after our table was lovely). It’s such a shame as we love to support local businesses but it didn’t represent value for money and therefore unfortunately it’s highly unlikely we would visit again.

1st visit and loved it. Booths were great and ambiance was fab. Food was delicious however felt the portions were a little small for the price plus did have to wait a while for food to arrive but it was a busy Saturday night. Special mention to both bar and waiting staff! Will be back but will order a side!

Ordered the Chateaubriand. Have to say I wasn’t overly impressed. It was a nice meal but the tenderloin wasn’t exactly tender. I don’t know whether it wasn’t a great cut or maybe wasn’t room temp prior to cooking.
As I said it wasn’t a bad meal still nice but for £65 ?? Not worth the money to be honest.

Very nice restaurant, which I have been to a few times and would recommend. However exceptionally poor vegetarian and vegan options - one option, being a mushroom stroganoff which was unpleasant. My steak was lovely but overdone - gorgeous sides though! Beautiful restaurant, lovely service and lovely ambience - to be honest I will come back but I would be grateful for more veggie options!

One of the best restaurants in Glasgow....food is superb and the service given from our waitress was outstanding. Although restaurant was full there is no indication of trying to push you out the door after your meal is over. Great restaurant....will be back

We had a lovely first experience at The McMillan. It was ideal stop to go to before heading to the tramway for a christmas show. The kids fish and chips was a large portion, very fresh and our 5 and 3 year olds loved it. My husband and I enjoyed our starter and mains. We took advantage of the prix fixe menu and we thought that this close to Christmas (21st Dec) it was good value. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was good although the satay sauce with the chicken skewers wasn't very good. Everything else was delicious.

Unfortunately the Christmas “special” was really pretty poor. Vegetables that had been cooking for hours, turkey with zero taste, potato filled with pepper, and a gravy that was truly awful. The venue is now dated and needing a really good clean. Sorry, this was bad.

We came to MacMillan’s for an early lunch. The surroundings are pleasant and clean. We were greeted immediately in a pleasant and friendly manner. We sat in a booth, which was comfortable and afforded a degree of privacy. The service was friendly and prompt, the food was plentiful and tasty. Good value.

The restaurant and bar are tastefully decorated and the place is always immaculate.
I would and have recommended this place to friends and family.
The owners have set and maintain a very high standard in everything they do.

We had the Sunday Market Menu 2 courses which had a few good options.

My chicken starter was a skewer and peanut sauce. The chicken was bland although the sauce was ok. My main ,roast topside of beef was cooked well, veg was good but I felt the gravy was made from Bisto! Maybe thats just me.

My partners starter of Chicken Liver Parfe was said to be very nice and her main of Gammon was again, good. 2 pints of Heverlee, 1 Prosecoo and a cocktail was £56 so pretty decent value.

Not spectular, absolutely acceptable and would go again.

I have visited this venue on several occasions with a friend and family, we have not been disappointed.

The food is excellent, the 2 or 3 course set menu is fantastic value for money, good choice of dishes too, the staff are friendly, welcoming and attentive, nothing too much trouble - keep up the good work.
