In another life, Citation Taverne and Restaurant was the Sheriff Court in Glasgow’s Merchant City.
These days the neo-classical Victorian building on Wilson Street has a much more welcoming reputation as a stylish restaurant offering classic and contemporary cuisine.
You could say that it dishes out fewer restraining orders and hands down more in the way of tasty dinner orders.
Today’s Big Deal sentences two people to each have a 10oz sirloin steak with a bottle of house wine to share.
Valid from early January until the end of February 2018, it would make an appetising Christmas present.
Available seven days a week, the Big Deal is for two people to each have a 10oz sirloin steak with a bottle of house wine to share.
Citation uses John Gilmour Butchers who specialise in sourcing grass-fed beef and lamb from the Scottish Borders.
Your steak is dry-aged and accompanied by skin-on, hand-cut chips; grilled flat cap mushroom and marinated tomato.
Guests are welcome to choose a sauce from the following: green peppercorn, café de Paris butter or red wine reduction.
Citation has attracted very positive feedback on their 5pm page where more than 300 reviews have resulted in an excellent, combined rating of 4.3/5.

Ideal Christmas gift
As we mentioned earlier, this Big Deal from Citation would be a perfect Christmas gift for anyone who enjoys a good meal.
It would also be ideal for a night out with friends. Using four deals, up to eight people could have a fantastic night out at Citation.
A great steak and a bottle of red is just the thing to banish the winter blues.
