Avoid Recess Restaurant at Hilton Garden Inn! I ordered a Cauliflower Curry which was on the menu and they didn`t have any Cauliflower but offered to make a curry with a `similar` vegetable. I asked what vegetable - Spinach apparently is very similar! (eh?). I ordered a Gordon`s Gin? Don`t stock it. A Bombay Sapphire? Don`t stock it. Any Pink Gin at all? Don`t stock it. Well then a Raspberry Mojito? Don`t make it. Surely an ordinary Mojito (it is on the bar menu)? Don`t have the ingredients to make it! Tap water? Surely to goodness they can`t say they don`t have Tap Water? Errrr not exactly, but when it came it had obviously been sitting for most of the day if not the week in that same water jug, it was luke warm and tasted stale - at least a few days stale!!! I ordered a bottle of water and it was cold and fresh hurrah!! Bye then I was grateful such small mercy! I noted a couple of other tables complaining to the staff as well. The Manager needs to sort out both bar and kitchen stock control or this place will close! The Recess being so close to the Hydro and SECC used to be so busy one had to book well in advance of a show but it was empty - now I know why!
Restaurant was closed for a function though they were still accepting bookings on here. We were put into a side room with a bar in it on a table that barely held the plates and glasses. The area was mobbed as Deacon Blue were playing at the Hydro and the hotel basically didn’t care. Would never use again even though the food was good because the attitude was terrible.
We opted for the chicken burger main course as we were attending a pop concert nearby and we were stopping overnight in the Hilton Gardens where the restaurant was. The food was tasty and well presented by pleasant staff. We washed it down with a decent glass of shiraz for a reasonable price. The ambiance was good but the large glass fronted dining area overlooking the River Clyde was a little chilly but not uncomfortable
Good service, delish steak. Poor dessert choice, opted for cheeseboard which was very basic. Overall enjoyed the meal and setting.
Perfect location for a meal before a concert at the Glasgow Hydro, friendly staff and easy parking
So disappointing we were staying at the hotel as my husband and I had tickets for a concert in the hydro! Booked out table for 6pm as we were to be at the venue for around 7.30pm (thought an hour and a half was plenty of time for our meal!) We went in and were seated quickly, ordered our food and drinks! Chicken for my husband and fish for myself drinks came quickly but 50 minutes later we were still waiting for our food! People coming in after us and being served??? We eventually had to say to the waitress we would pay for our drinks but we didn't think we could wait for the food and all of a sudden miraculously our food arrived it was okay but it definitely hadn't just been cooked, husband's chicken was chewy and although my fish was tasty my chips weren't very warm! We are it paid for it and left!! No coffee or desserts as we didn't have time! Don't think we will be back!
Good value for money, great location for hydro
Food is decent, although not quite as good this time as before - maybe because they were so busy, it seemed a little rushed... Beer garden was packed, music too loud inside - probably to suit the packed beer garden - massive queue for the bar which was a bit disruptive, the amount of dirty glasses and plates lying on the bar & tables showed the staff couldn't keep up. However it is handy for the SEC/Hydro.
Nice hotel in great location for Hydro, Bar and Restaurant both very busy due to weather, Concerts and various Hen/Stag, Birthday and Engagement parties having prebooked most of the seating inside and out. Tried on Friday evening to book early table for dinner with friends prior to going to Hydro to be told fully booked, I then tried to book online and managed to get a table at Opentable.co.uk.
The meals was average but staff very pleasant when they had time but that was something in short supply to them.
I was VERY unhappy with my experience here. Food was decent, not necessarily over priced but not a good value by any means. The servers were lacking in personality and they failed to make themselves present.
Ordered the vegetarian panini. Came and only half filled so sent back to the kitchen. Came back not much better and was cold and soggy. It's not difficult to make a panini. Menu said mozzarella, tomatoes, red pepper and pesto. Not a red pepper or any pesto insight.
Booked the recess as it is close to Hydro and was going to a concert. Have been in years gone by. The place is not as upmarket as it used to be. It is not a place I would go to for a special meal but fine for a pre concert meal.
restaurant has had a refurbishment since our last visit which looks good. Unfortunately the menu has also been updated and I feel that it does not have the same offering, very limited for anyone who has allergies.
An excellent venue for light lunches,well prepared dinners and great for pre theatre
We were staying in the hotel and arrived late because of road conditions but this wasn't a problem. The hotel/restaurant are very convenient for the SSE Hydro and whilst the restaurant was busy the staff were 'on the ball' and attentive without being intrusive. Whilst I suspect there is a reduced menu when there are major shows happening, there was plenty to choose from. One in our party has a restricted diet but again they were happy to accommodate and made suggestions. I will definitely eat here again.
Arrived early and was seated no problem and staff are friendly and great at there job
There was a function on in the hotel and the staff seemed fairly busy. We had booked a table for 7.30, we arrived early and bought a drink at the bar. We were shown to our table and had to ask to see the menus at 7.45. Our order was taken and we ordered a sharing starter and 2 main courses. After another fairly long wait we were served with our main courses!! I asked what had happened to our starter and the waiter said that he'd get it. Half way through our main course the Restaurant supervisor asked if everything was OK. I said that we hadn't received our starter and that since it still hadn't arrived to cancel it. I couldn't fault our main courses but very disappointed with the service.
Food and service were OK, the hot coffee spilled over the table and almost me, was cleaned up very quickly.
Normally a very pleasant venue for a quality pre theatre meal was spoiled by an extremely noisy Christmas party. (I’m ok with that it is Christmas ) However that party and others then moved outdoors but repeated returns into the room created an extremely cold drafty atmosphere each time the doors were opened directly from the restuarant onto Clydeside.
We determined that this would not spoil our dinner but other diners must have been more affected by the cold breeze each time the doors were opened.
Beer and burger before a show - perfect location and good food and service!
Inside is relaxed and comfortable. Outside is fabulous, when the weather allows. The provision of cosy blankets is much appreciated. The menu choice is okay. By far the greatest asset of Recess is the staff; they are welcoming, helpful and friendly.
Excellent food and service with the added bonus of cheap parking if visiting SECC
Usually love coming to Hilton Garden Inn, but this visit marred by very loud music being played by DJ on the terrace - no objection to music, but the noise level made conversation very difficult, particularly each time the door to the terrace was opened, which was often, with customers and staff coming and going. Staff very efficient and helpful, as always. Menu change meant the dishes we had anticipated were no longer there.
Overall, enjoyable visit.
Super quick service and whilst the food was good it wasn't piping hot. Waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant was busy but we didn't feel rushed.
Went for a meal before going to a concert at the Hydro. Service was very good as was the food. Well worth going to prior to a concert
Been here previously before show & was all fine so booked again.
Very quiet on the evening & I would have thought the service would have been much better than it was. I took a young man with Asperger & he said no tomatoes. The waiter said fine then I reiterated to him that there mustn't be a tomato on his plate. The plate came with a tomato on it. To most people they can just put it to the side & that would be fine but with this young man it's not fine. When I saw it on the plate I immediately said oh it's got a tomato but the waiter didn't even think oh I will take that off. I know this put him off as he didn't want to make a fuss but he onlay ate half of the rib eye steak. We then had a bit of a wait before our plates were taken bearing in mind there was many staff. We were then asked if we would like to see the desert menu which I said yes. I eventually after 10 mins had to go & ask for the desert menu to the same waiter & he didn't seem to have any recollection we were waiting for one. I'm really not impressed & I won't be back or recommend. The waiter was actually one or the managers or supervisors & as I previously said it was quite & I certainly wouldn't want to come for dinner before a show if it was busy.
Stayed at hotel and ate before a show at Hydro.
All staff were friendly,with good service and menu choice.
Food was well presented,hot and tasty.
Good choice of wine also.
Great place to come before going to the Hydro or SECC. Great views and food
Restaurant very quiet but we were shown seating right next to the only other couple in the restaurant.
We declined and asked for another table.
Starter was very nice. My husbands main course however was fish and one portion was very good but he considered the second portion to be a re-heat. The waitress checked with the chef and was told no it was fresh. However we did get 20% of the cost of his meal deducted from the bill.
Menu not the same as online menu. Waitress said she had never heard of dish I asked for and she'd worked there since last Sept and yet it's still showing online. Very drafty in cafe so you may need to keep your coat on, and scarf and gloves!
We booked dinner for 6pm but disappointed that there was no chicken left. Would have thought they would have had plenty at that early time.
Pre show dinner, the food was very tasty, well presented and served in a timely manner
Exciting evening waiting to see Rod Stewart at the Hydro was enhanced by a visit to the City Cafe. The setting was fantastic and the ambience amazing. A great selection on the menu made it really difficult to choose! My mushroom starter was spoiled a little by the soggy base but the salmon was excellent. We weren't sure whether we could manage a dessert but after a short rest ...yummy! Attentive,friendly staff make a return visit a must.
I book the Hilton whenever I go to event in Hydro or Clyde Auditorium though have used it on other occasions. Mainly because it's handy for parking, however food and service always excellent. Have recommended it to several friends.
Our table was not ready at the time booked, we had to sit in the lounge for ten minutes. The table we were given was right next to a partition separating us from the kitchen. The waitress said she would bring us water and I asked for a hot water, neither arrived till we asked again. We both ordered Salmon which we were later told was no longer available. We were offered cod which we both accepted, mine was fine but my husband thought his had been lying as there was a skin on the tartar sauce . As this, along with a night at the Armadillo to see Ball & Bow, was a Birthday treat from my children it was disappointing.
Enjoyed my chicken meal but my husbands said his burger was tasty but very dry hard to eat.Resturant quite pricey also had to wait a while to be seated service slow asked for water never got it ,staff were lovely though seemed under pressure as very busy.
We keep coming back! Such a nice atmosphere, lovely decor, beautiful food, good service, outstanding staff (Lorna is a gem!) Thoroughly enjoyable and worth every penny. We will definitely be back!
Very poor choice on set menu. have been before and choice was way better. won't be back again. very disappointing for a Hilton Hotel which i have used many times in different locations.
Lovely venue for a meal or a drink. Staff very helpful and attentive. Didn't have to wait long for food or drinks. Food good and enjoyable.
Excellent Service and Food choice and great value
Service good .Tomato and basil soup absolutely tasteless , didn't get a plate to put bread on so had to use table !
Main course good
Pudding was ok but not by far the best that we've tasted
On the plus side we all thought that the breakfast which we had there was very good with an excellent choice and good service
