The food served was delicious. The 2 courses for £12.95 is a fantastic deal. Lovely restaurant. Lovely food. Great service. Would recommend and will certainly be back.

I have been here several times for dinner and never once has it failed to impress on the quality of food, package price and surroundings.
Unique Scottish restaurant at Springfield Quay
The Red Leaf Restaurant is part of Glasgow’s Alea Casino on Springfield Quay but you don’t need to have had a good run on the tables to enjoy a winning meal here. Locally sourced produce and a unique approach are the factors behind the successful dishes The Red Leaf Restaurant has to offer.
Thanks to spacious booths, chandeliers and gilt-edged mirrors, the Red Leaf Restaurant looks very opulent but, despite its handsome interior, most diners will be gazing out at the magnificent views across the Clyde. The city sweep is impressive on a summer’s evening but the vista really comes into its own when night falls and the skyline lights up.
Locally sourced, market fresh produce
From the moment you arrive in the Red Leaf Restaurant you know you are somewhere special. Relax with a pre-dinner cocktail mixed by one of the highly trained mixologists then soak up the atmosphere in the Red Leaf bar before you are taken to your table. Head Chef Jamie Walker sources most of the produce he uses locally, from the 28 day matured beef from Dumfriesshire to the fish and shellfish, which are always market fresh and, where possible, from the waters of the West Coast.
Typical starters include the pan-seared sea scallops with a crab salsa, butternut squash puree and baby basil or the haggis tortellini with spiced neeps, basil and parmesan. The sumptuous array of mains includes the seared fillet of sea bream with spring onion-crushed potatoes, sauteed greens and a spring vegetable broth; A turmeric and coriander crusted cannon of lamb with creamed leeks, red onion fondant and a Maderia jus; or the now renowned 8oz fillet steak which comes with hand cut chips, onion rings, field mushrooms and Béarnaise sauce.
Leave room for dessert as the Red Leaf Taster dessert, a miniature selection from the dessert menu, is a must for all the dessert lovers out there.
Across the water from the city centre
However the cards may fall at Glasgow’s Alea Casino, you can be sure that you will come out on top in the restaurant. Springfield Quay is a short walk across the water from Glasgow’s city centre, with many transport options available to return home from a Scottish dining experience.
