First Impressions :

I had been to Ad Lib (Merchant City) a good few years ago, and at that point I was just so so (food and service). I had heard recently that it had been done up, and was a lot better so I thought I would give it a second shot.

On arrival when my friend and I entered we were greeted and I told the member of staff I had a booking and my name. The staff member then pointed to a table over the far side and said “how about that one”, and turned away. Myself and my friend were left standing and wondering, are we going to be shown to the table or do we just head over….we just headed over. This is the first time for a very long time I have never been shown to a table in a restaurant.

The new improvements inside didn’t really stand out for me, I noticed that the bar area has moved, and in place some more seats. The tables used to be covered in comic book pages, now its just a wooden look…..and thats about it really.

We ordered our food, and then ordered drinks. The one issue again with service we had was when my friend ordered a second drink, we were told they didn’t have it left so he looked at the menu and turned the staff member and started saying “I will have…” and at that point the staff member then walked away to the next table and done something with them. Yes, they did come back and take my friends order for another drink, but that was a little rude.

The Food :

For the starter I ordered Southern Fried Chicken Popcorn with a dip.

I really enjoyed this, and the dip was really nice. I would happily order this again.

This is where things started to go down hill again for me, and also my friend.

For the second course we both decided to upgrade to their special burgers menu, and we both went for the same one a “Ringer” which is Angus Beef w/ Swiss Cheese, Pulled Pork & Onion Ring. This sounded really nice….

The burger was nicely presented….

After about 3 bites I was actually getting bored eating it, the reason was the burger was a little dry and the flavours all blended so it wasn’t a great taste. The chips that came with it were nice, but they needed a lot of salt which is something I don’t tend to need to add to my orders.

I decided to go for the cheesecake of the day, the first member of staff I asked said it was double chocolate which sounded nice, then we got asked by another member of staff if we ordered and I said “yes the cheesecake of the day which I was told was double chocolate” and they replied “no its chocolate orange”. So I said ok and waited for my surprise to see what I got.

Well,…it arrived and yes the presentation again was nice. After a few bites, I found myself struggling to get any flavour from it…it wasn’t chocolate orange and definitely wasn’t double chocolate…so I am guessing it was just a hint of chocolate and no more.

Overall :

Overall this dinner out for both of us was a big disappointment, the service was terrible, the food was just so so. For me this was my second time and last. I am sure others might have had a better experience, but this was now twice it has happened and am not going to make it a third.

Just in case it was a case of bad luck twice, please give it a try just in case you have a better experience than I do.

So I tried the new burger place in Glasgow called Bryron Hamburgers, as I won a Twitter competition for a free ÂŁ50 meal.

After winning the Byron £50 notes, I looked at some of the reviews and found it to be very mixed but that didn’t put me off as I love trying new places.

On arriving we were greeted and the staff were very pleasant and showed us to our table. All the waiters and waitresses couldn’t have been nicer.

Starter :

Buffalo Chicken Wings (12) served with blue cheese dip.

This was really really good and my friend and I split the 12….to be honest I could have just had the 12 to myself.

Main :

B-REX Burger (Doubled Up) and Fries : 2x 6oz hamburger, onion ring, streaky bacon, American cheese, jalapeños, pickles, onion, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise.

Now this was a mouthful but it was so good and very very very filling. I think next time I will be a good boy and not double up.

Dessert :

OREO CHEESECAKE : Oreo cookie base, vanilla and Oreo cheesecake, topped with… more Oreos.

After my big B-Rez I didn’t know if i had room for this but i tried and finished it. Its a very tasty cheesecake that I found to be very light.

For my drink I decided to have the Chocolate Milkshake, well this was massive and very thick but the best Milkshake I have had to date.

Overall :

Overall I had a great experience and the food was really good. Yes I would go back again, as for burgers this is now probably my favourite place in Glasgow to date.

Also a big thanks to Byron Hamburgers for my win, very much appreciated
