Really disappointed with our meal last night at the Dakota Glasgow, which was not cheap at £189. The starter of chicken liver pate was basically a watery dollop which tasted completely bland, served with a small bread roll. Not the quality you would expect from...the Dakota. A suggestion would be to serve toasted bread or oat cakes with the pate. Our main course was 2 ribeye steaks with chips, ceaser salad and garlic mushrooms as sides. The steak’s looked superb on the plate but proved to be very disappointing. They were both fatty and a spongy texture, not what a ribeye should be. When collecting our plates our server enquired if we enjoyed the steaks, which we said no and explained the reason. But no response. Our deserts were well presented and tasty, followed by coffee which was the best part of the meal, unfortunately. Service was good and the setting is beautiful. Just a disappointing meal.More

My husband and I booked the restaurant as we had been given vouchers as a gift. Before visiting, we checked the website to peruse the menu and a special Christmas menu was apparently available. When we arrived at the restaurant, the waitress informed us that...we were now part of the "2nd sitting" and that the Christmas menu was not available during this time. I pointed out that on the website, there was no note of there being a specific time frame to order from that menu and the waitress did go and check this and did apologise that indeed there was nothing on the website to state this. I have numerous dietary needs and was looking forward to ordering from the Christmas menu as the food provided on this menu, was more suitable for my specific needs. The waitress did go and speak to the kitchen staff, who recommended a chicken burger. This was very disappointing and was something that was very similar to a burger that you could get from a fast food restaurant. However, my husband ordered a steak and was very pleased with that and had no complaints in regards to his meal. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco, and were provided with two glasses, one of which had lipstick marks on it and after pointing this out to the waitress, the glass was changed, but unfortunately for a 2nd time, the glass was still marked with lipstick! Very off-putting. I was really looking forward to a lovely meal at Dakota Glasgow, as I have previously visited Dakota, Eurocentral on numerous occasions, but unfortunately, I was not impressed and left very disappointed in the service and food.More
