Harden's survey result
“High-end no-nonsense food with spot-on service” have earned chefs Peter McKenna and Ivan Stein a range of accolades for their stripped-down Finnieston five-year-old (including, slightly bizarrely, being listed by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the world’s top 10 restaurants). “It looks like it’s going to be trendy and hipstery” (from the exterior, a bit “like a cocktail bar”), “but this is Glasgow, and it’s actually a very pleasing spot a notch above a mere neighbourhood haunt: a sort of Sticky Walnut with its culinary sights set a little higher”. “High end” modern bistro dishes of Scottish-sourced ingredients are served in the “very modest surroundings” of a formerly derelict building.
At its best, this vibey Finnieston two-year-old is the epitome of “relaxed dining with great cooking, and a wine and beer selection that hits the mark”. The experience can suffer though from “inconsistent service” and a feeling the albeit good food is “overpriced”.
This “cool and friendly” Finnestoun two-year-old, from an ex-ABode hotel team, is “definitely on the way up”; fans proclaim it a “true gem”, where the small plates are “tasty and imaginative”, and the “limited space is very well used to create a bustling, purposeful atmosphere”.
“Creative and innovative” but slightly “stark” Finnestoun yearling, run by refugees from the hallowed ABode hotel, which wows reporters with its “exciting” small plates (featuring “excellent Scottish produce”, particularly “unusual and sometimes foraged ingredients”); “I don't expect Ed Miliband will be back but we will”!
