Excellent value for money for a set lunch menu, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The standard of the food was first class, particularly the chargrilled pork loin and chorizo ragu, which was absolutely superb.

The restaurant was comfortable. The food was fabulous, prepared not just to feed you but to entertain you as well. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The bill for all that was very reasonable. We will cerrtainly visit again next time we are in Glasgow.

Amazing restaurant! Food quality and service was first class. There were three of us and we booked in advance and told them about our dietary requirements. One was Coeliac, one vegetarian and one vegan. When we arrived and were seated we were presented with three separate menus for each of our various needs. This is amazing, and unheard of anywhere else in Glasgow. The waiting staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, and they obviously had been trained in what each of our allergies / requirements meant. As if that wasn't enough, all our meals were delicious and inventive. We will definitely be back!

We visited Red Onion, wanting a nice meal a quiet table - no intrusive background music - so we could hear each other talk, as we were having an informal meeting of our work team. It ticked all those boxes, even though it was quite busy, being a Thursday evening. One of the party is Vegan, and she was very pleased with the choices on that menu. Another received good advice on how to order the steak and it was cooked just the way she wanted it. The fishcake was very filling with lots of fish and not over-potatoey. My wild mushroom risotto was very tasty and just the right amount. The puddings were great. We went for the fruit crumble, banana fritters and I can vouch for the ice-cream with salted caramel sauce which was more than moreish. The bottle of Prosecco was favourably priced compared to other restaurants and bars. Waitress was helpful without being overly-attentive (meaning not constantly checking if we were enjoying the food, etc, which can be irritating) Altogether a very pleasant evening in terms of food, ambience and the two-course pre-theatre menu is great value for money. We'll be back !

We really enjoyed our meal at the Red Onion. Great choice on the menu. All three courses were all we could have asked for. I normally only ever have two courses, but decided to have three, as did my two friends, and we were glad that we did. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Great value for money and each of us would be happy to recommend the Red Onion to friends and family and would visit again. Cannot really think of anything negative to say about the food or service. The only criticism would be that the tired toilets let it down. Definately not the same standard as the food.

Red Onion was, as I had been led to expect, a fine restaurant with very friendly, intelligent and attentive staff and a splendid chef in the kitchen. My dining partner is coeliac and particularly enjoys the Red Onion for its professional care over preparing food. I would and will go back any number of times. On arrival our reserved table had both the regular and the gluten free menus awaiting us. That's attention to detail! Very impressive and very good. Thank you Red Onion.

This was my second visit to Red Onion and it didn't disappoint. Nice ambience and excellent food. We booked Red Onion as we were taking another couple out to dinner and my husband and myself had both been to Red Onion before on separate occassions and we both thoroughly enjoyed the food so we thought this wood be a good choice, and we were right. Our friends really liked the venue and enjoyed the food, will definitely be back.

The fact that the Red Onion actually has a separate vegan menu with choice is amazing. A chef that can take the time to make good vegan food in a nice environment in Glasgow is a novelty. We are older Vegans and like to eat out in a nice places, the combination is often hard to find in Glasgow. You can get good vegan food but its usually pub grub and this is okay but sometimes you just want an up market feel to your night out. I am a Chef and Nutritional therapist and very picky about what I eat, so enjoying a meal out can be a challenge. So well done Red Onion on offering a better service.

The Red Onion never disappoints, the quality of the food is outstanding and choosing from the fixed price menu makes it a very affordable option for a late lunch or a pre-theatre meal. We have been occasional customers at the Red Onion for several years now and the meal and service are always first class. Quite often chef/owner John Quigley comes round the tables to chat to the diners, a lovely, personal touch. I would recommend the Red Onion to anyone looking for unpretentious, good food and friendly hospitality.
