Having booked with Louize for 29 Glasgow for our 2020 wedding and thereafter changing to Citation we have had nothing but amazing things to say about Louize. We have been at a few open days and met with/spoke with Louize on many occasions, she is...always on hand for any questions and is so happy to help. When we went to view Citation I was apprehensive about it as it wasn’t our original choice of 29... but wow I was so pleasantly surprised. The place is stunning. The ideas Louize has for it, are nothing short of beautiful. A venue which should definetly be considered with a coordinator with a real love for the job. Unfortunately we have to wait sooo long to get married due to changing our date again. But can’t wait to see all the pics of the couples getting married and the venue at its best. Thanks for everything Louize. Your a star ⭐️More

Initially I was supposed to be getting married in May 2020 at 29 Glasgow however, with all the changes that have happened this year the wedding has now been pushed to May 2021 in Citation. I have to say that from the very first time...I have met her Louize (the wedding coordinator who looks after weddings, both at 29 and Citation) has been nothing short of everything I could want in a wedding coordinator. On top of being knowledgeable and efficient, which she has been at every turn, she is also extremely friendly and warm. She instantly put both myself and my partner at ease, making us feel welcome and excited about the big day. She had answers to every question I had and was able to focus on all the little details with me. She also is great at keeping in touch and throughout the whole COVID situation which has been stressful as a bride (so i CANNOT imagine how much pressure and stress she has been under) she has remained honest about the current status of the wedding, open about our options and listens to our concerns. Citation itself, well.. as a woman who was very very excited to get married at 29.. I didnt initially think I would be sold on Citation but oh my, it is gorgeous.. Its actually perfect - the furnishings and building itself are absolutely beautiful and the venue is spotless. I cannot wait to get married there and there is absolutely no other venue I would choose and no other person to help me on my day than Louize and her team.More

Myself and my partner booked citation for our wedding just a little over a year ago for Feb 2021. Our first meeting was fantastic we were greeted by Louize and we were shown around and had all the info broken down for us to understand...clearly. I then visited a few months later to let my mum see the venue and again had lots of new updated information from Louize. Fast forward to May 2020 half way through a global pandemic and being out of work for 4 months, I started to worry about our wedding date being near and having financial difficulties - I contacted Louize and asked if they could possibly move our date to give us a little extra time. ( I was a nervous wreck for days!!) within a day Louize had our deposit transferred to a new date and all new schedules emailed over. She was so re assuring and really helped take my worries away. Since then we have had a visit to catch up and find out what plans citation have moving forward with weddings. Can I just say Louize you are amazing - she has turned a bar into a venue! Her personal little touches are beautiful and she has absolutely put her heart and soul into making this work. We cannot wait to see the place after all the changes are done. She is a credit to the company and anyone looking for a city wedding I would highly recommend visiting here and letting Louize take care of your special day.More

Can I just say that I could not praise the girl Louize in 29 Citation. Walking around the venue talking through plans and making choices. Shes a wealth of knowledge and a credit to the company.

Great food and customer service. Special thanks to Louize, although she specialises in weddings nothing was a hassle and she managed to pass me over to the correct person to then handle my booking. Stay safe and hope to see you all soon guys.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, I have been taken care of by the amazing wedding coordinator in Citation. Louize has been available around the clock to answer all of my panic-induced queries and has absolutely left me reassured that my wedding will be...going ahead next year on as close to my original date as I possibly could have had! Louize made moving my date and preferred suppliers seamless and really took a weight off my shoulders! I've always loved Citation as a venue, it's absolutely stunning and I am still just as excited for my big day next year! Even more time to get excited now!More

Popped in for a couple of cocktails an pleasantly surprised by how nice they were. Lovely friendly atmosphere. Nice decor and plenty of space between tables made in easy to get about in my wheelchair.

I’m going to start with the good points as there are few. The building itself is stunning. It has tons of potential. We arrived and found tables dirty and sticky, littered with empty glasses, my wife wiped ours with hand sanitizer and tissues to clean...it. It’s not great in the times we’re living in. The chairs were ripped, stained and in a poor state of repair. We were sat at a table with someone else’s water glass still there, although the waiter did apologise. The food was desperate to be honest. I’d opted for the Sunday roast gammon. The roast potatoes were frozen so was the veg. To be honest Yorkshire puddings and gravy don’t really go with ham either. Incidentally the Yorkshire could’ve been used to fill holes in our roads at the moment. On this experience I’d not recommend or return. To the owners, you need to get your act together, or you’ll be gone especially in the sad daily changing climate. I do need to point out we were there before government guidelines on staying away from public places.More

The service was performed without a smile....I felt that they just wanted people out as soon as they arrived. We had booked the two course dinner and my wife asked the waiter if she could have main course and dessert - The answer was no....The couple that came in after us and were served by the waitress asked the same question - main course and dessert - The answer was Yes???....seems they have no idea about the menu and fixed meal...The food was mediocre at best, the meatballs were terrible and the pasta that came with them was soooooo bland...The Chef should be embarrassed to serve this. I should have gone to Ikea for a better meatball meal... Too many choices of Good restaurants in Glasgow....we will not be back....More

We had lunch here recently and were a bit disappointed. Service was very mixed; from poor to excellent depending on who served you. The food wasn’t as good as we hoped it would be and the menu, whilst beautiful, didn’t quite have a wide enough...range/choices that suited us.More
