Just had really nice lunch here with my friend. We were on our lunch break so only had an hour and this was perfect. Nice surroundings, efficient and friendly staff and the food was good. We both had a French toast sandwich which was excellent. My friend had skinny fries with hers and I had the soup of the day... More

Stayed across the courtyard in the premier Inn and visited this bar a few times over the weekend. Lovely breakfasts and reasonably priced. They do nice bellinis, wine and beer. Friday and Saturday evening we listened to the piano player in a relaxed atmosphere. Staff were welcoming and friendly. A really lovely place to visit.

We stayed in the Premier Inn at Charing Cross on the Saturday night and normally after a night in this hotel we would go to Wetherspoons for our breakfast but as it was raining on the Sunday morning and we were getting the train at Charing Cross station we decided to go to the Baby Grand and we were really...

What a lovely piano bar that is ... Starting from the magic atmosphere to the beautiful food complimented by excellent customer service. The Baby Grand is truly an hidden gem where the prices are not as pretentious as the rest of the west end. We visited the Baby Grand regularly now for years and we are never been disappointed Last...

We waited 15 minutes from our table reservation time (we were a little early) before anyone took our orders and it was a further hour before my food came. My daughters had burgers which were burnt (look up how cancerous burnt burgers are thought to be) and my main was just soggy jelly. Menu said ALL main courses came with... More

deeply sorry about your experience with us Mr cypress rod it breaks my heart that this happened to you. On our defence i can confirm that half your party was prompt on arrival time however the other half arrived time after. Therefore, your table of 8 was the last to order and the last to be served on an evening... More

I had the Bavette steak, with Chimmichurri sauce and truffle fries, cooked by my amazing friend. Hhmmm! I was only in Glasgow for a week and had to go back for a second time, just for that dish. Highly recommend the dish, wherever you can get it in the world.

This was recommended and it didn't disappoint. It's a piano bar and whilst we were seated very near to the pianist, at no point was it too noisy and overbearing. The pianist played throughout the time we were in and we enjoyed his background playing but felt able to hold a conversation in comfort. Food was very nice. Service was... More

I chose this restaurant because of the live piano music... We spent a lovely dinner! ❤️ The food is quite traditional and nice (just short of salt in a couple of dishes). Prices are fine as you have the live music. I would recommend it 👌🏼
