Evening started really well with service and food which was excellent! Unfortunately though right beside us we're a table of young women who were VERY LOUD to the point we had to ask them to be quiet! Looks from them and rude gestures given to us then the waitress stepped in - a bottle of prosecco arrived and they were... More

Visited this whilst in Merchant Square, and sat "outside" under a twinkly lit tree. Seems to attract an affluent crowd and security on the "door" made it a nice place to drink. Very busy but good service by the bar and also waitress service. Drinks at the table was a nice touch, despite us not eating. Cool spiral staircase and... More

I recently held my 21st party in the private room and everything went perfectly. The staff are so friendly and made sure that my night was perfect. The buffet food was delicious, the room is pretty and a lovely size (not too big) and the cocktails are amazing. I would highly recommend for a private party or a cocktail outing... More

My wife and I used to be regular visitors to Metropolitan, including several excellent Hogmanay visits. We hadn't been for a while because on several occasions we found that table service would vanish after the main course. On a few occasions we were not offered dessert or coffee and struggled to order additional drinks. Recently, meeting up with another couple,... More

I booked this restaurant for 15 guests. The staff were efficient and friendly, welcoming our party of 15. Food was delicious, hot and an excellent price for a three course set meal. Set in the Merchant City. Would recommend.

Very happy generally with my experience here. Balcony table overlooking square was fabulous.Choice on menu great and food delicious and reasonably priced. We were a party of 15 and had a booking for 8. We had been in to the restaurant earlier to deliver balloons and had asked could we change the booking to 8.30 and that was agreed. Unfortunately...

I have been to both the Metropolitan Bar and Restaurant when in Glaagow for a number of years. The food is delicious and served by very attentive staff. The bar has a great atmosphere as has a mixed age group and fantastic music playing. The updated furnishings and layout adds to make it a must visit when in Glasgow.

Thank Scottish0714
