We arrived to be greeted by a very friendly and welcoming team. I say team because everyone had a hand in looking after the 3 of us. We were sat and took in the décor, which is a mix of green, brass and wood, which has a warm almost Victorian feel. We ordered drinks and as we were waiting for our friend to arrive, she was 45 minutes late, we just sat and chatted. The great thing was that at no point was there any pressure or circling by the team. As soon a we advised we were not ready to order we were left alone. We loved that. When it was time to order, the menu, which was refreshing minimal, was explained and we took advantage of the tapas, 2 dishes for £22 which also includes a side. To say that the dishes were incredibly tasty and flavoursome would be an understatement. We had Beetroot Hummus, Black Sesame, Tortilla Chips/ Confit Duck Leg, Fermented Plum Sauce, Lemongrass/Bone-in Pork Schnitzel, Sauerkraut, Jaeger Sauce/Chargrilled Steak, Pickled Pear, Blue Cheese Sauce/Heritage Carrots, Smoked Bacon & Maple Syrup/ 2 of the GFC (Glass Orchid Fried Chicken), Buffalo Sauce, Garlic Aioli/Chips & Focaccia. Not a single dish disappointed. My favourite dish...I couldn't pick one. A special mention must go to the team. There's something about genuine people who want to provide genuinely great service. The team were faultless, as was the whole experience. Thank you to all involved

Absolutely incredible venue, service and food! I booked for my mums birthday, and having let the team know a member of our party had a garlic allergy, we arrived to a whole menu prepared for her. Usually in most places this means the menu is sparce, but on the contrary there was almost nothing the kitchen at Glass Orchid couldn't prepare for our requirements - everything was made so fresh, piping hot and unbelievably tasty. I especially enjoyed the woodland scallops, and every dish bought a welcome dimension we hadn't experienced before. We are truly impressed with the freshness and taste of the food, and the service was so accommodating and welcoming. They even brought out a birthday plate at the end of the meal. Truly couldn't rate this place highly enough, not to mention the bougie decor and vibes. An undeniably 10/10 experience, and we are excited to come back for cocktails soon!!!

Easter sunday family lunch Arrived and were seated quickly with the menu. We realised there wasnt a drinks menu. The waitress appeared to take our drinks order and noticed the omission. We ordered our food 4 beef and one pork belly with sides of pig in blanket and cauliflower cheese. The food arrived in great time and was delicious. Another roast potato wouldn’t have gone amiss. Once we finished the waitress took half our plates away the i assume forgot the other 2, the waiter noticed later and took them. He asked if we required a dessert menu we said yes but then waited about 20-30 mins until we were asked for our options by this time we weren’t bothered so paid We will definitely be back

On a Saturday evening, we went to the Glass Orchid with friends for a meal. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. But took 15 minutes to be asked for our first drinks order and they took another 15 minutes for it to arrive. The food was ordered (8 tapas dishes) soon after, but we waited 50 minutes for the first dishes to arrive which were warm rather than hot. The service was friendly bit chaotic; an extra drink was ordered, forgotten and reordered twice. A promise was made to reimburse the cost of that drink as we were about to leave; however, this was forgotten when the bill came. The restaurant’s atmosphere was not relaxing as there was a lot of background noise and a band. At times we had to shout. Perhaps the Glass Orchid needs to consider whether it is a venue for drinks and music or a regular restaurant where people can meet friends and relax.

Pros - nice atmosphere, waiter James friendly and welcoming, food was good. Cons - portion sizes, no serving cutlery, some waiters didn't know what the dishes were. First time visit to Glass Orchid, James advised to order 8 dishes for a party of 4, in the end we ordered 9. As is normal for tapas dishes arrive at different times, the first to arrive was the hake and dahl, this was one small piece of hake, which we needed to share with 4 people, so about a mouthful each. The chicken lollipops and grandads sandwich contained just 2 pieces, again to be shared with 4. The cod was 4 pieces so this was easy. Sadly all dishes arrived with no cutlery to serve, so you were then having to use your own used knives and forks to share the food - fine if you're with close friends, but not good if you go with a work party, I wouldn't want to eat food that someone's used cutlery has been in! It would have been helpful to have a note on the menu of how many each dish would serve, you could then decide whether to order two of some dishes, but this would then increase the cost of the meal. There seemed to be some confusion in the kitchen, as we received some dishes twice and a dish we hadn't ordered. With drinks the meal came to £65.00 per couple, so not a cheap night and sadly we left not satisfied and our friends went home to put the oven for fries. First visit, and won't be returning, if you are in Beeston there are better value alternatives.

I'm so happy that this space has been taken over again, and by such a modern and vibey restaurant too. We're lucky to have a venue like this in Nottingham, nevermind Beeston. The restaurant is stunning inside with artwork on the walls and intimate lighting. The bar stocks plenty of unique cocktails, but you can also request a classic and one of the lovely bar staff will make it for you. More importantly, the food was incredible! The menu is small plates/world tapas and genuinely exceeded our expectations - the kitchen know what they are doing! Highly recommend ordering the 'Grandad's Sandwhich', I've never had anything like it before. Desserts were scrumptious too, we tried the mango cheesecake but will definitely try the peanut butter doughnuts next time. Service was also 10/10, especially for such a newly opened restaurant. Looking forward to visiting again!

The food is excellent and so is the service. Our food took a while to come but it was worth the wait. It is tapas style with both meat and veg options. I would say it is a little bit pricier than other tapas places in Nottingham, but some dishes are quite large in portion. Overall loved the food and the vibe. Would go again!

Dinner for four at the Glass Orchid. Great food, lots of choice. The restaurant looks lovely. The service was excellent, particularly the two young female waitresses who took our order and delivered our food. We will definitely visit again!

First visit to Beeston’s newest restaurant & not disappointed. We had 4 main dishes, 2 sides and 2 desserts & enjoyed every mouthful of every dish. Glass Orchid has some very innovative chefs & we can’t wait to try more. The atmosphere is just right - comfortable & relaxed but still feeling like a special dining experience. The staff were all pleasant, courteous & helpful without being obtrusive & it felt as if staff training was important. We really hope this place does well & Beeston supports it. Well done Glass Orchid!

We had high hopes for this restaurant as we have eaten frequently at several of Mark’s (Head chefs) previous restaurants) and it did not disappoint. We booked the Christmas Dinner menu for Christmas Day, which I think comes with added expectation, and the restaurant delivered. From front of house to back of house all was on point. Service was attentive, polite but not too fussy nor disinterested, (thank you Caitlyn) and others. The cocktails ordered were made with care and a perfect pair to our meals. The food we had was tasty and thoughtful, with nothing falling short of expectations. Dessert was a perfect ending. It gave me Kushi ya Tira-miso vibes, anyone who knows what I mean will know the level we are talking about. Overall this will be our first visit of many, very lucky to have this on our doorstep in Beeston.

3rd visit since it opened and it’s always incredible service and staff know the menu and drinks to pair with personal requests and pairings. Tried the new menu and the soft shell crab took me by surprise as my favourite dish, also the tempura fried egg was beautiful. The chicken dish was juicy and flavourful and I would say it’s better than another well known place in towards town (m). Bethany was lovely and attentive. Can’t wait to come back again!!

Every time I visit the glass orchid it is an experience to remember. As soon as you walk into the venue you are greeted by the most polite and welcoming staff members. The venue itself is stunning, a well laid out bar and restaurant with amazing decor and a lovely variety of seating arrangements. Moving on to the cocktails (my personal favourite being the in violet a new twist on their old school deep purple) each cocktail is unique in its own right and are amazing. The way they are presented as well as the way they taste is truly impeccable! They have a good variety of wines and cocktails to cater to individuals different requirements and preferences. The food in the glass orchid can be described no other way than truly divine. My personal favourite being the steak or their lovely Sunday roasts. The presentation of the food is stunning and the taste is amazing. I can definitely say the chefs at the glass orchid cook with passion. I visit glass orchid regularly and have never had one bad word to say about the business I think the venue is ran exceptionally well by the management team and the staff are always at the top of their game. I would definitely give a big shoutout to managers Tom and Gemma for how well they keep the business ran always trying to come up with new ideas to appeal to their custom with different offers on drinks or new menu ideas that are put forward. I would also like to thanks chefs; mark, will, Lou, Ewan and the rest of the kitchen team for the amazing food every-time I visit. As well as the bar and floor staff for their amazing service and creating a welcoming atmosphere. Some of my best experience in glass orchid have been thanks to staff members such as; beth, Caitlin, marlie, Chelsea, kieren, daisy and the rest of the front of house team. The team is always interacting with their customers to create a very welcoming and positive atmosphere for all different types of customers and I think the team deserved a great review for their exceptional service!

Superb Sunday roast , excellent tasty food freshly prepared by the chefs visible from our table. Presentation top notch and delicious choices. We had the lamb, beef and two veggie choices. The Yorkshire puddings were huge! Accompanying dishes of pigs in blankets and cauliflower cheese were so tasty. Staff were attentive but not intrusive and welcomed us on arrival , quick service for drinks and ordering. Desserts were just as good also the choice of mocktails and cocktails, made in front of our eyes with precision to detail and flavoursome making you want more. All the menu is reasonably priced, well worth a visit.

Absolutely loved my experience at the Glass Orchid restaurant! This was our first time of visiting and one thing to say is that this venue is stunning! The service we received was fab, and the food was simply divine. Each dish was bursting with flavor and beautifully presented, with the chargrilled steak being my favourite and the Mouli Steak being my wife’s. A perfect spot for a delightful evening out with friends or a romantic date night, somewhere I highly recommend!!
