Wow, you don’t half contradict yourself with this comment on the restaurant, in the first paragraph you said that you were not particularly hungry that night, to then go on and say on the second paragraph that you were starving hat night – sorry, I had to comment on this as I go on he forums to get a good view on what other people are saying about a restaurant I am about to pay a visit to.

The restaurant is beautiful and the tables are well spaced. The staff are very friendly although a little rushed.
I only gave 4 stars since the waiter who served our food was in a hurry and failed to warn my boyfriend that the skewers on his plate were scolding hot. He touched them to remove the chicken and badly burned his hand.
The manager was over immediately, and apologised and supplied ice and water to subdue the burn while we ate. To be frank, it ruined what would have otherwise been a lovely evening, but I felt the staff did all the could to rectify a mistake anyone could make.
I ate beef fajitas, it was delicious but served on a footery array of tiny plates secured on a larger plate.
I would definitely go back. Also I'm sure the manager contacted us and offered free drinks on our next visit, so that was nice :)
Ever since I visited the grill on the corner earlier in the month I have been raving about it to anyone that will listen! the food quality, service and even the decor were top notch! it is a great place for escaping the office at lunch and i think my wife is in for a treat as i have booked us in for her birthday next month.
I come here quite often for lunch with friends who work up in this area of town, one of them is on their mailing list through work and often gets great offers like 50% off, I really must get myself on the list! When you walk in the front bar area feels really nice and airy, and has a nice clean feel to it, The restaurant area is round the corner form the bar and feels pretty grand but yet the menu is pretty reasonably priced and has items for the more discerning palate as well as tried and tested dishes such as burgers and fish and chips. Meat and seafood are the specialities with a large variety of steaks on then menu, I wasn’t that adventurous and went for fish and chips the last time we visited which was delicious and tasted really fresh. The staff are really attentive and seem very well trained, every visit we have had has been very relaxed, enjoyable but with great food and service so cant really ask for much more
Iv been here on a few occasions with work and for a quiet meal.
I have always really enjoyed the food but for fine dining i think there are probably better restaurants to go to in Glasgow, dont get me wrong i think its well worth a visit!
The restaurant itself is large and very crisp looking, nice surroundings to sit in looking out to bothwell street.
on my last visit i had pan fried cod and mash which i would highly recommend, the fish was fresh and the butter sauce not to heavy!
they also have a good wine selction and u can get a nice bottle of chardonny for about £15.
The service has always been attentive and staff friendly.
I think its worth a visit!
I didn't have much luck with this place. I had booked a solo dinner there (was travelling for business to Glasgow) and was really looking forward to some quality beef. When I arrived, I wasn't feeling exceptionally hungry so I ordered myself a nice Kobe beef burger. Boy was that a mistake! It arrived, and I took a bite immediately, hoping to relive the joys of a near perfect Kobe beef burger I'd had elsewhere. But it was far from perfect. In fact, it was impossibly salty and just didn't taste like quality kobe beef (I consider myself an expert seeing as I've had kobe been in Kobe. And pretty much eat it whenever I see it on a menu.)
Trying not to be overly annoying, I continued to eat the burger until I hit a point where I decided I actually preferred not eating (I was starving that night) than finishing it off. The waiter noticed that I had stopped and checked whether I was just taking a break (yay for good service); I explained the situation and they promptly took it away. The hostess (manager?) came by and apologised, and even offered me a free dessert.
Dessert arrived and I'd have to say that it nearly made up for the burger (again, I was starving). However, at the end of the meal, they ended up charging me for my free dessert. I wasn't bothered enough to complain (again, trying not to be overly annoying) so I paid my bill and left.
It was a shame, because I really wanted to like the place. But the experience disappointed, and I also ended up with a terrible case of food poisoning. So much for high quality kobe beef...

My first visit to The Grill on the Corner last night was disappointing. I had high expectations after taking in the reviews of other Qypers. My experience may have just been a one off. Further, I didn't raise my disappointment with the restaurant as I was with work colleagues.
The restaurant and bar occupy an excellent spot in the heart of Glasgow. The restaurant was bustling and they were unable to accommodate our group of 6 in the main restaurant, instead seating us in the bar.
The restaurant has a good wine list and decent but modest selection of bottled beers. No complaints there.
For our meal, we went straight to mains but ordered some bread and olives. We were presented with far too few olives for a group of six. What we got were good though.
For my main I ordered the special (pork with caramelised apples and a black pudding mash). The size of the portion of pork was a little on the small size and the mash was verging on cold. The plate itself wasn't warm either. The pork I got was good, cooked perfectly and well presented. The flavours in the mash worked really well but I would have much preferred it hot.
Finally, I was disappointed with the service. Firstly being seated in the bar when there was clearly enough room in the restaurant. Secondly, I don't think I saw our waiter smile once. Instead I ended up feeling very much like we were putting him out!
Myself and the wife went here for our anniversary. There was loads of choice, bit pricey but the quality was excellent. the service was fine and the choice of drinks was also pretty good. I'd definatley go back and will be doing so in future.
The table was booked for 8pm, our orders were finally taken at close to 9pm.
The starters took almost an hour to arrive.
The main courses took another 30 mins after the starters.
Approx 10 of us ordered steak, and approx half of us got what we ordered, cooked how we'd specified.
One of our party had to wait until we'd all finished ours till his came.
The sauces for the steaks arrived about 15 mins after the steaks, cold and slightly congealed, mine never arrived at all.
I'd say a good 10 mins after that, we were asked if we wanted salt and vinegar for our chips, the waitress even stopped me eating to ask me, when it was clear I had no chips only salad - odd?
I left our group at 10.35, the plates still hadn't been cleared and I had not got the energy to see how long it would take for dessert to arrive.
My steak when it did arrive was nice, but nothing special, the waiting staff are friendly, but the kitchen staff have real problems, both with timing and the ability to clearly read an order and cook it how it is specified.
I won't be back here, you can get a far better meal, that arrives in a timely manner and is cooked correctly for much less money elsewhwere in Glasgow.

Went back here recently for lunch, not my choice, the choice of my friends and it was very nice. Nobody ordered steak as my friend who comes here regularly says their steak isn't that good. based on my past experience, I'd have to concur.
I had a warm scallop and bacon salad, it was tasty, but very small and really a starter sized portion, not worthy of the £10.75 price tag.
My friends meals were ok, but the rope grown mussels must have come off a really short rope as it was mostly sauce.
The waiter was lovely, even though he got 2 out of 3 drinks we ordered wrong, and did bring us garlic mayonnaise, made specially for us, a nice touch.
The Grill has redeemed itself, but only very slightly, I certainly wouldn't go back for a special occasion, but would try it again for lunch.
Been here twice already and love it foods great atmosphere great staff great. hubbie desperate to try £50.steak going on saturday again for son’s girlfriend’s birthday,8 of us going so let u know how it goes.
I can’t believe that the previous reviews are of the same restaurant.Six of us were there on Saturday 7/3/09 and had a very poor experience.The soup tasted of nothing and was bulked out with cornflour? Sausages in the sausages and mash were tough tasteless and dry.The burger had no taste.The surf and turf consisted of a small steak and two small prawns.The chips looked like the dregs from the deep fat frier.The seafood pie consisted mainly of a dubious sauce with little taste.Even the bread with the balsamic vinegar was doughy and had no texture or taste.The staff were very good at selling bottles of wine but made no comment whatsoever when they removed half-eaten plates of food.The only “good point” was that we had booked online and got a 50% discount on the food.Obviously we will not be back.
This is one of the busiest restaurants in Glasgow at the moment and I can totally see why. The food is amazing and there is such a great menu. You have the choice of steaks, fish&chips, faijtas, burgers, salads and the famous Kobe steak (£50! Yikes) or Kobe burger (lots cheaper) this is the cattle that get feed beer and massaged before they get the chop which means yes it tastes amazing, if you don’t like medium rare then don’t go there, but the burger is good.
We signed up to the email alerts which I would really suggest you do as we got sent a voucher to use which allowed us 50% off our total food bill which was outstanding. We shared the Chateaubriand which was superb, one of the best meals ever.
Also if you sign up to their emails you get a bottle of bubbly if it’s your birthday and you book a table for 4.
Service is excellent and the staff are all organised.
Defo need to book, even through the week.
A really fresh menu in trendy, high-energy setting. Best mussels I’ve had in years but my kobe burger was a little on the cool side for me. That being said the chunky chips were phenomenal and the staff were very friendly and quick to recommend things they liked themselves which we all found useful. My GF loved the Swiss coffee.
A modern and funky restaurant right in the heart of Glasgow. The menu is really good offering different choices to your standard menu such a Kobe burger or steak. The waiting staff are really helpful and attentive. They recommended a Hendricks Gin and Tonic made with cucumber which was fantastic! Overall a great night out but book early as they do seem to get really busy even on a week night!
A meaty menu that is both traditional and exciting, the meal I had here was among the best I have eaten in Glasgow. Food is well cooked on the barbeque grill and there are plenty of options to choose from, though if you are not a meat eater you will probably feel like you’re missing out. We had the fillet steak and lobster for two, both absolutely delicious. This is a classy and atmospheric restaurant. It’s not cheap, but good for special occasions. Staff were attentive and helpful, and there are extensive wine and cocktail lists on offer. Eating here feels like an indulgence, but go on, you’re worth it.
