“Nice but needs improvement ”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Visited at 330pm on a friend's recommendation. We'd heard lunches were fab. On arrival we were informed that they closed at 3pm but that we could still order and stay! Bit odd but however we did, only to find that we could only have the slices of cake left over and a drink. No food now available! Anyway we persevered, took a coffee and an empire biscuit and took in the surroundings!
If you want to go make sure it's the morning or be sharp for lunch, clearly afternoon not a good idea. I'm sure it's lovely but I can't know for sure. Think the concert hall needs to rethink and decide if they're open or not. Why open if no food? :(

“Nice place to work”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I was there with a band playing just one night.
Easy load in and out, good local crew. Slightly more confusing getting from back stage to front of house to visit friends.

“Excellent value for money.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I took my family into Glasgow to experience the atmosphere buzzing with international tourists visiting for the Commonwealth Games and decided to have lunch in the restaurant. The area was bright and spacious and the staff, although very busy, were very welcoming and friendly. A good sized bowl of delicious carrot and coriander soup, prawn-packed sandwiches with salad and crisps plus a mug of excellent hot coffee all for a very reasonable £6.95.

“Great place to meet and eat”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Wednesday morning and the place was absolutely buzzing with a great atmosphere. Light lunches extremely good value indeed. Tasty salads and freshly made sandwiches with drinks for three at under £20.00. Comfortable, air conditioned surroundings made our meeting very pleasant indeed on such a hot day. Great meeting place in the heart of the city centre. Was back a few days later for the SCO with Nicola Benedetti. Really well oganised with a packed house being ushered in and seated in a short space of time. Bar service was quick, friendly and polite. Fantastic venue
