Description: At The Market Restaurant we place an accent on the quality of our ingredients rather than the length of our menu. All preparation of food and cooking is done here on the premises. We avoid convenience pre frozen, pre packed and synthetic products wherever we can and use fresh wholesome foods cooking them in ways that lose as little of their nutrients and flavour as is possible. Wherever possible we source our ingredients from local producers and suppliers. Some guests get it immediately, others unfortunately don't. Our reward is in those guests who recognise the results of our efforts and return again and again.

My partner and I went here because they accepted the Taste Card and we were at a loss at were to visit (there are so many promising restaurants in Manchester). The menu seemed very fancy and we were expecting quite a lot. The restaurant is practically a very small room with far too many tables -- we were practically sat... More

I suppose it's 10 years or more, probably 15, since I are here last. The Northern Quarter then was all wholesale rag trade and Asian shops. Only the market restaurant was a beacon in the desolation. Now the northern quarter is all trendy bars and eateries. The Market has changed little, same corner site on High/edge Streets. The name is... More

On an evening out with my girlfriend and her parents. It was a Saturday evening and we hadn't booked anywhere. Our usual favourites were full but unfortunately this place had plenty of room. I should have known better. For those not wishing to read a lengthy review I'll sum it up as follows; very expensive and very unpleasant. The waiting... More

Myself and my other half visited here after a tough week as a treat; we didn't want to go to restaurants in the local vanicity due to wanting to try somewhere different. Firstly, the atmosphere in the restaurants and confused with all the pictures, but French music. We were served, we asked wine and water; the wine glasses share what... More

When we arrived the manger/ owner was setting our table. He did not welcome us or speak and left us to be served by a couple of young waiters. The waiters seemed friendly and helpful at this point. The starters were mediocre but the main courses bland and inexcusably bad. The guinea fowl was dry and the beef steak was... More

We visited this restaurant and tried the taster menu with wine pairing using a Groupon voucher. The staff explained each course and the wine they choose to match this. We were extremely impressed with the quality of both food and wine. The game pie was delicious We will certainly be visiting again, when we are in Manchester.

Love the food and the service! I always like to eat out and try all the restaurant, but in Manchester, I've still not found a restaurant that I would want to return for second time, except this place! I've visited this place many times in the past, but have never been disappointed, the food is always nice. The customer service... More

On our first trip to the restaurant we were greeted by a young, male waiter who seemed very jittery, uncomfortable and mumbled a lot - it was hard to understand what he was saying sometimes. We were taken to our table and given menus - after that he went and hid behind the bar avoiding any eye contact with us.... More

We visited the Market Restaurant on a Wednesday evening before attending a gig in the area. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews but the food was good, fresh and tasty and the service attentive. My guinea fowl with butter beans was really hearty. The drinks weren't great though. We skipped dessert but had peppermint... More
