I recently had the pleasure of dining at Gōst, a steak restaurant in Glasgow, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. In fact, I would confidently recommend it as the top steak restaurant in the city.
From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The sleek and modern decor created a sophisticated yet comfortable ambiance, perfect for a memorable dining experience. The attentive and friendly staff immediately made us feel welcome and ensured that our evening would be nothing short of extraordinary.
To kick off our meal, we decided to indulge in some oysters, accompanied by a delightful glass of Albariño. The freshness and quality of the oysters were evident, setting the tone for the culinary journey that awaited us. As starters, we opted for the curried scallops with crispy pork belly and the lobster Mac and cheese spring rolls. Both dishes were beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. The combination of the perfectly cooked scallops with the crispy pork belly was a match made in heaven, while the lobster Mac and cheese spring rolls were a unique and delicious twist on a classic.
For our main course, we couldn’t resist trying the sharing chateaubriand, and it did not disappoint. Cooked to perfection, the prime cut of beef was tender, juicy, and full of flavor. It was truly worth every penny. Accompanying the chateaubriand were the truffled dauphinois potatoes, which were rich and creamy, and a smoked bone marrow topper that added an extra layer of decadence to the dish. To complement the flavors of the steak, we chose an exquisite Argentinian Malbec, which proved to be an excellent pairing.
To end our meal on a sweet note, we indulged in the sweet and salted cherry and pecan cheesecake, as well as the signature sticky toffee pudding, which was highly recommended by the knowledgeable team. Both desserts were a delightful combination of flavors and textures, leaving us completely satisfied.
Having dined in various steak restaurants in Glasgow, I can confidently say that Gōst stands out as the best. The combination of exceptional food, elegant surroundings, and impeccable service truly sets it apart. Whether you’re looking for a special occasion or simply want to treat yourself to a memorable dining experience, Gōst is the place to go.
