Neo-classical columns front Citation's split-level form, which contains a ground-floor tavern and more opulent dining room upstairs.
With a front door in the magnificent facade of Glasgow’s Old Sheriff Court and a great location in the heart of the Merchant City, Citation feels every bit like a glamorous destination for a big night out and a sumptuous feast. It’s a little surprising then that the rather formal dining room majors on a set menu (£12.95 for two courses including a glass of wine) that offers a real bargain and runs right through until 10pm every day except Saturday. Fixtures on the prix-fixe are fish and chips, pork belly and chicken breast, while more indulgent options on the à la carte menu include dry-aged Scottish steaks and a handful of fish and seafood dishes. It’s a slightly odd mixture of luxury and thrift, with two sparkling, well-stocked bars ready to mix a range of killer cocktails and dispense champagne while diners tuck into fairly homely, well-priced food. A recent change of ownership of the restaurant may lead to some developments during 2017.
