Red Onion Review

by Jeffrey MacDonald
(Uttica, New York State)


I've just been in Glasgow, as part of a trip travelling round Scotland. My wife Sarah and I love wandering round cities we've never been to before, and seeing what happens.

Sure, we take a guide book, just to make sure we take in a couple of the big tourisy bits and pieces. But then we try to wander off tracks a little.

What do locals do? What's it like to live here? Those are our mantras, and they worked well in Glasgow, I can tell you.

We'd been for a tour of the School of Art, and then we'd managed to find the Tenement House. Boy, was that cool! Nothing has changed for more than a century. Wow!

Then we were feeling peckish. We strolled back to Sauchiehall Street and turned along a street, at random.

And came face to face with a little restaurant called Red Onion. In we went, and enjoyed the best lunch of our vacation. I think the menu was mostly European, but there were Asian twists in there also.

Like I said, we roll with wherever crosses our path. But Red Onion was so welcoming and tasty that I felt like dropping this line.

I agree with this web site. Red Onion is well worth a visit. And it didn't set us back much, either.

Happy times!

We Deserve Red Onion
by: Suzanne P

Red Onion is close to my office. After every payday, we head over for an extended lunch - we've earned it, believe me!

The food is delicious, and service is slick and friendly.

Love it... Don't go changin', Red Onion. Keep all those layers in place for us!

Red Onion Rocks...
by: Ollie


I'm from much closed to Glasgow than New York state - but I love Red Onion just as much.

Glad you had a good time when you were with us.

Red Onion is my favourite restaurant because of the wide range of influences in the menus. I read somewhere that the owner used to be a chef to the stars, and actually travelled on tour with a couple of them!

How cool is that? It shows in the Red Onion dishes...
