Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most awful restaurant I've been to in a long time. Food was barely edible in fact i sent mine back and didn't reorder. Uncooked sausages, raw parsnips, hard dauphinoise potato's. Mirrors grubby, woodwork filthy and full of spiders, seating area freezing. Sea bass overcooked...and dry. the only thing nice about this place was the young staff. Before i done this review i sent them an email expressing my concerns, but 3 days later no reply so they obviously don't care about customer feedbackMore

The food could have been warmer. The chicken schnitzel was overcooked, to brown and disguised by cheese. The fries were good and hot.

Arrived at 5.40 pm for pre theatre dinner. Starters arrived after a bit of a wait but at 7 pm we had to ask if mains would be long. Had to rush food and run to the theatre. It wasn't even busy at the time....When looking around it appeared that no one had any food. Pre theatre means we are going to the theatre! Food was mediocre.More

We had a voucher for 6 small plates and a bottle of wine. I had requested a booth if available which was granted. Thank you. Our lovely waiter, sorry I don't have a name, (young with a beard finishing at 4 on Sunday) brought us...water for the table and took our wine order. After bringing and pouring our wine he took our food order for small plates. The food arrived after a short while and it was delicious. Everything we ordered was fresh and very tasty. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and we will return to try the main menu soon. Again another mention for our waiter who was friendly and professional. Little things like asking if we wanted to taste the wine and remembering to bring mayonnaise when requested even although he was dealing with other tables. Thank you!More

Ill start with the best thing ... the Christmas wreath decorations were lovely and the staff were pleasant enough but required further training. The restaurant was cold and the food terrible. I returned a Burrata as it was most definitely off and tasted fizzy. This...in my opinion is the ultimate no no for any restaurant. No apology or explanation given. by the waiter The rest of the food was bland and poor quality.. Wouldn't recommend La Bonne Auberge, Glasgow has a wealth of quality restaurants to choose from.More

First time back to what was a regular breakfast/dinner and bar for pre covid times. The bar area is now sparse and like a waiting room with full lights on and one selection of on tap beers which were a poor choice. No cider on...rap and removed st mango’s glasgows brew. Service from staff was pleasant but they were short staffed - can’t blame them as it’s across the hospitality industry now. Food was average but we missed the start of the concert as service was slow. If you are going to a concert suggest you book 30 mins earlier than normal. I truly hope it gets back to good standard levels pre covid.More

I can honestly say this was one of the worst hospitality experiences I've ever had. At one stage I was waiting on Basil Fawlty making an appearance. We arrived just before 12pm and there were 4 staff standing about. We should have left then when...they would do anything but come near us. There was also no other tables in at this stage. After we sat down we looked around and the place was disgusting. Tables covered in breakfast dishes and the floor hadn't been touched. Again the staff remained behind the counter. We got up and asked if we could order drinks. 10 minutes later we again had to ask if we could order. The menu actually read well with herb foccacia with brie and poached pear so we ordered a croque mosuier, brioche French toast and a herb focaccia along with a snack of honeyed chipolatas. The waitress came out to say they had no herb focaccia so would a baguette do and no brie so would cheddar do? We changed our mind and ordered another crouqe. We then got served 3 ham and cheese toasties on stale bread! We're still waiting on the chiplolatas. Seriously avoid this place. Given the trials that hospitality has at the minute I completely understand that people are making cut backs but no excuses for the sheer volume of mistakes here.More

Always thought this was an OK place to wait for a friend or transport. Not any more. Tonight I was there, ordered a drink, found a space to sit - very few people around - went to the toilet, came back to my seat and...my scarf was missing. I went to the reception desk to ask if they knew what had happened - nothing. It was an expensive scarf so I persisted. Next thing I knew I was being threatened with the police!!!! Bring it on I said. Sat down waiting to be arrested for… being a stroppy woman I guess. What do you know… suddenly my scarf is found. Left at the bar they said. Right. I would take off hat, gloves coat but leave a scarf at the bar while I ordered. Fine. Happy to have it back… but ordered out of the place, because… Hope they’ve got the CCTV because I think I’ve got the audio.More

Booked about a month in advance. Arrived on time and we were ignored by two members of staff who didn’t even acknowledge us. Eventually we were offered a seat in an unmade table in the middle table of the restaurant (which is never a great...place for a same-sec couple who often feel “watched” at the best of times). We took a table in the conservatory. It was utterly freezing. Could not take off our jackets and scarves. Service was very slow and lacked the customer care one expects these days. The atmosphere was terrible - lights too bright, no music, dirty floors, tables higglety pigglety. Food not great. My starter came on a plastic plate. The place is reminiscent of a Wetherspoons that time forgot. The whole place needs to be shut down and completely re-done. So disappointed to see a tired old restaurant like this in a prime spot in our city centre. It is not a shining example of Glaswegian or Scottish hospitality. Give it a miss.More
