    We had queue to enter the building from 6.50 until 7.15 along with many other people. This meant we were late for our booking at 7pm. By 8.20 we had to leave with only having been served starters and had to cancel our main courses. No one approached our table after taking our order to offer further drinks or take starter plates away. We approached staff at till area to ask for our main courses (female in suit jacket) said the mains would be right with us, a further 15 mins passed and we could no longer wait therefore had to leave. We were offered no explanation or otherwise for the delay. The entry to the building with one person seating every single guest is a poor system which had us standing out in the street in the cold.

    I feel like the quality and experience of cranside kitchen has got very low! Not as menu restraunts and options, the food wasn’t great and we left a lot of it. The drinks tasted weird and just felt really low quality overall. Such a shame when this used to be a place where o got excited to go but i highly doubt I’d go back.

    The service wasn't great. No one seemed to know what they were doing. We ate Asian inspired and the salt and chilli chicken was so try it was hard to eat. The raspberry daiquiri was very bitter so not great. We were at an event in the radisson so was great that we could have something so close but all 8 of us wernt really impressed at all. We attend the radisson alot so maybe this time was just due to festive period qa we beverage really had problems before x Suzanne

    I was unaware that the Greek restaurant had closed down and therefore vegetable options were limited. There was no soya milk option for the coffees and no desserts were on offer on any of the menus. I've been here before and this time I was severely disappointed.

    Was booked into Italian and although service was quick very limited menu. All the pasta dishes our group had none were nice, pizza was good though. No garlic bread on menu or any desserts. Very limited menu you think they could get it right, portions small too. The toilets are discussing, no loo roll, dirty, broken doors and blocked toilets.

    You have to order everything on phones and spend time registering rather than socialising. No physical menus. Thai green curry was packed full of raw red onion which it should say on the menu as this is not traditional and would not have chosen. Food came quickly and well priced - just don’t think the model works. People want to order drinks when they get there and for someone to take a food order so they can chat and enjoy dinner.

    Had to order on an App. Staff couldn’t care less. App menu had very few choices compared to the website. No instructions on how to use the App and told instructions were on the confirmation email but Opentable confirmation did not have instructions. On the plus side food was good and served quickly. So sad to see what was one of Glasgows top eateries adopt this poor customer service experience. Will definitely not be back.

    I have dined here many times before but now they have stopped selling deserts. Was disappointed. Also, I had ordered a glass of tap water along with my wine and food but it never arrived. Think this was so I'd pay for a bottle of it. Tables very close together and I was sat next to drunk people. Couldn't wait to leave.

    My three friends and myself felt there was far too much garlic in our meals. One of my friends was unable to eat her meal. The other two friends and myself although we ate some of the meal found that is gave us "upset" stomachs. Also the way to order food now takes far too long. Also not everyone is technically capable of ordering food in this way. All in all a very disappointing experience and would certainly make us not want to return. A huge disappointment.

    This is the second time I've been in and been given soda water when I ordered tonic. Was told they must have run out and then was brought a bottle of tonic. Can't help thinking there's a money saving scheme going on here. Check your drink is what you ordered. Drinks also arrived 15m after the food. Very bizarre. The food was lovely. No complaints apart from the fact that our dirty plates were left in front of us for a good hour. Service was awful. So slow and not enough staff to cope with the demand. Staff were run off their feet and it was hard to get someone's attention when needed. Polite enough when spoken to however. When there is an event on at the hydro, more staff are definitely needed. It's a great location and so handy for the hydro but as long as you don't expect too much, you won't be disappointed.

    Food was amazing. The service was poor though…. Could be due to them being busy but we seemed to be forgotten about… when we finally managed to get the bill we sat waiting for half hour to find someone to come take the payment. Would still go back but maybe something they should work on.

    Really disappointed! Our experience from start to finish was poor - Instagram is not a true reflection of what you actually get. Service, food, atmosphere, value for money are all terrible. Food in particular was not good, it looked and tasted cheap/frozen and reheated. We are not ones to complain usually, however don’t waste your time or money on this place.

    My Mum and I felt the atmosphere was detached and that we were not really served, as we ordered our food and drinks through scanning a QR code instead of table service. The food was nice, but we were disappointed by the lack of choice and especially that there were no deserts on the menu. Maybe we are just used to a more personal one-to-one service at other restaurants, but we would not get back to the Cranside Kitchen.

    My friend was ill at the restaurant and the servers went over and above to be helpful in any way they could. Really kind and considerate. Thank you. It's a pity that tips are on the app as usually I tip after my meal. It's also a pity you have to order as if you are ordering a takeaway, it makes the experience impersonal and I do not want to give my address and email address and telephone number each time I order food or drink in a restaurant.

    My friends and I really enjoyed Cranside last year for our Xmas night out together which prompted us to book again this year. We were all so disappointed, there must have been, at least, 15 minutes between the first one of us getting our dinner to the last two being served, I had virtually eaten my food and the others were just being served! The food also wasn’t anywhere near as nice either so unfortunately wouldn’t book again to come back

    Just because things can be done through a QR code these days doesn't mean there should be no level of customer service at all. We arrived 10 mins early so we know we might not of been able to be seated straight away (although there was only a small number of tables in so a quiet night) but the 2 members of staff walking the floor were purposely not looking in our direction, almost like a "not our job, I'm not gonna look over, cause I'm not dealing with you". Good point I will say,is that the bar staff member was lovely, she noticed no one was acknowledging us and looked over to say someone would be with us soon. When this still didn't happen soon, she then came to explain more that we needed the "hostess" and she was sorry that she wasn't there yet. We are always patient and understanding so this is no problem, as long as we are given respect like this staff member gave us by explaining, than leaving us standing there like the other staff did. The "hostess" arrived, I was on the phone so my partner was the one to interact with her, and he looked very frustrated when I got off the phone - he said she had an attitude, was very much sit here, scan the code, bye. I have worked in hospitality back in the good old days of customer interaction and creating a great experience for those dining/visiting, and I hate the way things are now. Some staff are making it far to easy for companies to make them obsolete and replace with technology. We were sat at a table for 2 people, next to lots of empty comfy booths - a few clean that we could of been sat at - but the rest dirty, and remained that way until near the end of our meal, didn't look great looking around at a very quiet restaurant with dirty tables. When did those people dine?! The food was very poor. I remember the Chinese food previously before becoming "cranside" and it was amazing, my go to visit before any show. Sadly no longer. And the staff must know, as no one asked how it was. Particularly avoid beef curry

    First impressions always matter but unfortunately this place was not very welcoming. There is no one at front of house to welcome you in and show you to your table, the lighting in the place was terrible, there were children running all over the restaurant. We sat down and were told, scan the QR code! and we were left to our own devices. Once we worked out the app we found we couldn't order a starter to come before the mains. All the food comes together. The food arrived and we didn't have any plates to serve our it on and so had to ask, that didn't go down to well. The food was at best average, and no-one came around to ask if everything was satisfactory. All in all a very impersonal experience in a restaurant that could offer so much more if someone would take the time to look after the customers. Will definitely not be back.ps they also ran out of straws and prawn crackers.

    Great location for the Hydro & SECC. Poor waiting area/system for waiting for a table, even when booked. Sat on the 1st floor to order from the Xian menu. Was very cold, so much so that my wife kept her jacket on. Food was ok, but menu quite limited and I would say probably overpriced for the what it was.
