    We arrived to a very full & buzzy atmosphere. Our table wasn’t available, Staff were lovely and kept us informed and got us seated as quick as they could . We ended up at a table to the right of the bar which was perfect. Food was excellent. Very lively bar, music a little loud for my liking but didn’t seem to bother others! Would recommend.

    I have to call out the service I received from management on the app firstly. I was making a large booking (12 people and 2 dogs) and the service was efficient, flexible, friendly and helpful regarding the deposit. On the day the food was excellent, pints were lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. Lastly I have to call out Jac for her amazing service. I had made two previous bookings about 11 months before and I couldn't believe it when she remembered us! Her service (as with the previous two occasions) was exceptional and she's an absolute credit to the bar. Without question - and similar to what I've written before - Jac is the reason I'll keep going back but the whole team are outstanding. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

    Bar 91 is just one of those brilliant places in Glasgow that never disappoints. I hadn’t visited for a while… the staff were so lovely and genuinely friendly. The food was outstanding. Hats off to the very talented chefs. My friends and myself had a lovely time! 10 out of 10 to the Bar 91 Team!

    Friends chair broke when sat down he ended up in A&E came out with a sling Girl in next table was sick over floor meat to where we were sitting eating so not a great experience
    Bar 91Responded on October 4, 2023
    Dear Elaine, We are very sorry to hear about your friend’s injury. We investigated the incident and we are happy to share the CCTV footage with you. Our Bar supervisor Ryan came over to see as he heard a woman shout "Excuse me", he went over to see and it became clear that the chair had broken. He asked if he was okay and if there was anything he needed to make sure he was okay. Your friend said he was fine and he was in good spirits. Our bar supervisor removed the broken chair and replaced it with a new one immediately after. From the CCTV footage it is clear that the entire group was enjoying the stay, and no one raised any concerns during the time spent in our bar. If you have any other questions about this please feel free to contact us at info@bar91.co.uk Kind regards Alice Marketing

    Despite having booked a table when we arrived there was no table reserved for us. Every table was occupied. The security staff had to put a makeshift table together beside the bar. The table was in direct line with where people ordered drinks so it was quite uncomfortable sometimes when the bar area was busy.

    No staff approached us when we visited so I would be careful when booking through open table as it would look like a no-show on their records. We were very disappointed when visiting this venue, table was dirty and sticky. Bathroom facilities with poor hand dryer, not working. I would like to thank open table for dealing with this matter promptly.

    Never been here before and it was a bad time to eat here as the bar was mobbed with football fans after a match! However the food was good and the service was great - loaded nachos and pizza very tasty. I'm 62 so that's probably why I found the noise level too much. - but the music was great!

    Was a regular until my workplace relocated. Selected Bar 91 expecting no tv. Hadn’t realized new owners had them installed. TV volume was extremely loud for rugby match therefore conversation was limited for our company. Would recommend to a friend with a caution about the tv volume. Some pubs showing sports have no volume ensuring a welcome for all age groups particularly young family’s.
