Nicely cooked flat-iron steaks with hand cut chips which were lovely. We had a voucher for these so added a sauce each and some quite nice Chilean red. The staff were very friendly and attentive, making sure we had what we needed. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and everything feels informal, which is nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and although it is slightly tricky to get to from the centre of Glasgow, we will be back.

We've been to the winged ox loads of times since it opened and it's remained a firm favourite with us. Food has always been top class and the staff are the friendliest in any of the places we go. If we ask our wee boy where he would like to go, his answer is always the same...St Luke's! The staff give so much of their time to him (and seem happy to do this) and that means that myself and my husband aren't stressed out about him wandering around talking to everyone! The staff all appear to get on well and look happy at their work with makes for a lovely atmosphere....and as I said earlier the food is always great! We're happy, 3 year old is happy, we will continue to go to the winged ox! Thanks!

Second visit to the winged ox. Last Thursday being my first. But was dramatic change in food quality. I invited 4 friends with me this time as was so happy with previous week. Food service. Staff were all great so much so I bought all staff a drink. But Saturday was realy disappointing spent £120 on food bill but much of the food was left. Pork Nellie bites were dripping of fat. Chicken wings were pink in the middle. Boneless wings were fine. One of the steaks was sent back as not cooked to order. Nachos with chillie witch I thought were home cooked must have been bottom of the bag as were all broke and a bowl of crumbs. Rice was under cooked. Saturday was realy busy compared to Thursday so don't know if this is the ushal standard for a busy day as Thursday was not so busy and amazing. I will be back as hope this may have just been a bad day. Service and staff were still lovely. Just food quality realy poor.

We had a really nice dinner at The Winged Ox! The atmosphere was relaxed and the service friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend a visit, especially if you are going to see a gig at St Lukes next door.

We ate here at hogmany food was great , staff attentive and the party for hogmany was good and well organised. If I had 1 gripe it would be that a piper for the bells would have finished the night off, we had 4 English friends with us and it would have been a real treat for them but a great night had by all. Its our second visit, was there for a gig a few weeks ago. Look forward to our next visit.

Looks like a fantastic venue and we would really like to return to hear the big band only thing we didn't like was the TV screens on every wall. The staff very pleasant and attentive, the steak was cooked perfectly and the wine was lovely. I don't drink beer but my husband does and was very impressed with the range and quality.

Really quirky venue, lovely relaxed atmosphere. Good music, attentive staff, great beer and the food was fresh and tasty, from a varied menu. We ate before a concert in st Luke's so the clientele were mainly an older crowd going to the gig but usually I would imagine it to be more younger crowd although that wouldn't put me off returning.

Great service from David who managed to squeeze extra friends in at short notice. The bar staff are all great. Friendly and professional. Our party of 8 all had different dishes and they were all delicious. Great place with good range of beer on draught and in bottles. A glass of red wine didn't taste right and was immediatly swapped for another which was very nice. Great place and dog friendly too!!!!

great friendly service and even friendlier for the dogs. Food was great. Came across here when attending a BBC event at St Lukes and wanted to come back to try properly and loved the fact is is dog friendly as we have a 12 week old lab so gives us somewhere to go for a drink now without leaving him

The service was first class. A warm welcome before we were seated at the lovely booth table we had requested when we booked. The food was absolutely delicious - the brisket chilli was the best chilli I have ever tasted. Would highly recommend this place. Loved it and will definitely be back again and again!

This was my first visit to the Winged Ox, pre-dinner before attending a gig at St Luke's. The winged Ox had a vibrant atmosphere and the menu offered a great selection of choices. The Staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food was great tasting and good value for money. Will definitely visit again.

Staff and management are exceptional. Went with partner three kids and a birthday dog. Everyone LOVED it especially the birthday dog. Food was along the lines of especially well done pub grub with pastas chicken wings and burgers. Everything was clearly made from scratch. Can't wait to go back. Neither can my dog.

What a hip place....brilliant atmosphere and surroundings. Something for everyone (including the dog) and the food is great (if a little unusual)! Good choice of drinks and the prices are good for the city!!! Staff friendly....service a tiny bit sketchy when busy but to be expected.....love the place and the staff :-)

Good steak cooked to correct level, perhaps under-seasoned, but the sauce and the accompanying chips ,tomato and mushroom made up for that. Service very helpful and there was a decent selection of cocktails and beers. Wine list a little limited but offers a few options. Overall pretty happy. The music was a bit muddy...is it onor is it Not? The

Excellent experience, pleasant ambience, attentive staff, good quality food, great value. The restaurant has a varied menu with many choices for vegetarians, and something for everyone including small plates and sharing platters. The prices were competitive and the staff were efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommended.

Just moved to Glasgow and knew this place was dog friendly. Excellent staff, food and service. Took family for some food who were helping us move and went back day after for quick lunch in-between unpacking! Chicken shish wrap amazing. My wee westie Meg loved her sausage too.

Fantastic!! Service and food were great, can't fault it and will definitely be back. Charlie Miller sarnie was delicious and a very fussy teenager loved the macaroni. Even our furbaby ate every bit of his lunch and enjoyed all the attention he got from staff.

My first visit. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food was great especially the nachos, best I've had. Charging silly prices for drinks in the music venue though, a can of irn bru and a can of lager £6.50!! It wouldn't put me off going back though, had a good night.

Excellent meal presented well. A varied menu offering a dynamic range of mains. Staff very pleasant. The only negative aspect was that the venue was a bit cold, I ate quiet early but I'm sure later in the evening it would have warmed up a bit.

Lovely food as usual. Just one issue - my dog's food was served in what looked like a cardboard lid for a burger. Can you go back to proper dog bowls please? If i hadn't grabbed it off her she'd have torn it to bits. Thanks!

Friendly staff, and an excellent beer selection. Food was good in the most part. I was disappointed by the Mac and cheese. A massive portion but a little boring. The deep fried jam sandwich was a massive hit, as were the wings.
