Landmark Merchant City venue

Citation Taverne & Restaurant is housed in the magnificent former Sheriff Court building on Wilson Street. From the moment you arrive you know that you’re in for a special meal, as it’s easily one of the city’s most impressive dining spots.

The Tron Theatre, Old Fruitmarket and Princes Square are all within easy walking distance, so you could pair this with a show or day out shopping.

There is limited on-street parking nearby and pay parking on Glassford Street. Central and Queen Street stations are both a ten-minute stroll away.

Happy guests

Here are a couple of recent rave reviews for Citation from 5pm diners:

‘Superb. A very relaxed dinner. Food was excellent and plenty of choice on the 5pm menu. Service especially good. We had a party of 12 and given our number I was particularly impressed by the service and attention.’ 5/5

‘Top class food, location, staff and atmosphere. The best gem I have discovered in the centre of merchant city. Once you have gone you will be a regular. Class with reasonable prices. Can’t wait to return.’ 5/5

Dine in style at Citation

If you’re in the mood for a dining experience that’s a little bit special, then today’s Big Deal from Citation certainly fits the bill. Plus the added option of a bottle of vino will certainly add some vim to the proceedings.

Available from January to March for lunch and dinner, you will have plenty of opportunity to plan your meal. As mentioned, you could pair it with a birthday celebration or trip to the theatre.
