About Chelsea Market
Food was very good, however it was a little on the cool side by the time it reached the table...!!
I really like this venue, but I just find it so so noisy, not pleasant if you are trying to have a catch up chat.
A taste sensation
Firstly, Chelsea Market has a lovely ambience. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. We started off with cocktails. A great selection of cocktails, a wee bit different from the usual. We had a deal giving us 4 courses off a set menu. Food was amazing!! A thrill for the tastebuds. Each course was beautifully presented. The unusual ingredients were all sourced from local areas for example wild leeks from Kelvingrove Park and gorse flower from Drumpellier. All in all a very pleasant evening. Can't wait to go back.
Bistro-style restaurant in Finnieston
Chelsea Market is a chic, bistro-style restaurant on the hip and fashionable Finnieston strip on Argyle Street. It is a handsome space that combines vintage cushioned bench seats, cosy booths, exposed stone walls and retro-industrial flourishes like the metal piping around the bar. Large windows means that watching the Finnieston street life is always an option. A strong cocktail list, extensive beer range and a wine list which includes 28 wines by the glass add to the appeal of Chelsea Market.
Modern British bistro food
From lunchtime steak frites to dinner options such as the Isle of Mull langoustines grilled with butter, the seasonal menus at Chelsea Market feature many a simple but classic dish. Not that the kitchen is afraid to add contemporary twists such as the pink grapefruit, pomegranate, hoisin and honey dressing that accompanies the short rib starter.
At Chelsea Market, diners have the delicious choice of ordering conventional options like the Sunday roast or the house sausage with potato purée. Alternatively, guests can head off piste with more adventurous options like the spiced quince on French toast with bay leave ice cream. From dry aged beef from Glenmavis to Peterhead hake and Shetland mussels, Scottish produce is well represented.
Finnieston transport and attractions
Chelsea Market is at the Finnieston end of Argyle Street. There is limited on-street parking and several bus routes go to and from the city centre from outside the restaurant. Kelvinhall is the nearest subway. The SEC, Hydro and Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum are all within easy walking distance.
