Had been to the Grill Room before. When I saw the discount voucher felt it was too good to be true and bought it. What a disappointment. The menu was really poor. If you would like to order a steak they all come at a supplement between £12 and £22, and additional items at an extra charge. One starter we... More

Would like to know why the sides on the itison deal cost £3.95 each and there is a £2 supplement for bread when on the A La Carte menu the EXACT SAME sides cost £1.95/£2.95 and the bread is complimentary!!!!

Second visit and it was very good. The lovely Richard looked after us very well indeed. Very tasty cocktails to start with - excellent food and we even managed to find room for puddings this time and very glad we did as they were lovely. Going back again in a couple of weeks.

Last night we used a voucher that was gifted to us for Christmas at the Grill Room and, as the title suggests, it left us feeling a bit duped by it all. This particular offer was "£25 instead of £57 for 2 courses for two and a glass of Prosecco each at The Grill Room at the Square". The first... More

Thursday 16th was our first time at 29 The Grill Room At The Square and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, particularly our lovely waiter Richard who looked after us for the evening! We were visiting as part of the ItIsOn deal which my sister had given us for Christmas. This entitled us to two courses and a glass of Prosecco... More

The food was absolutely incredible, Richard our server was the loveliest waiter we have ever had! He went the extra mile to ensure our experience was as good as possible. He even showed my boyfriend how to enjoy oysters to the highest extent and get all the flavours from them! But it wasn't only Richard, all the staff were super... More

If I want to take a friend for a special meal in nice surroundings with good food, The Grill Room is always my first choice. I was there again with a friend for lunch on 14th March and, as usual, couldn't fault it. Our waiter, Richard, couldn't have been friendlier or more attentive. I always recommend The Grill Room to...

Visited with my wife on an Itison voucher for 2 course meal plus glass of proseco. Very dark & dreary entrance stairway, not very welcoming. Our waitress Jenny was friendly but the head waiter refused our request to be moved to a nice table for 2 overlooking the square which lay empty during our meal. The menu was very limited... More

Description
The Grill Room is part of the spectacular 29 Members Club that overlooks the Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow. The restaurant is sophisticated without being overbearing, decorated with dark wooden floors, sumptuous drapes and elegant seating. The menu is equally lavish, arranged by award-winning chefs, and can typically include dishes such as the native Cullen Skink, chickrn stuffed with spiced prawns and grilled wild sea trout. Desserts are equally stylish and can include Eton Mess and chocolate tart with orange sorbet. Three courses, excluding wine, cost around £30 per person; luxurious dining at affordable prices.
