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.

We returned to the Market on our most recent trip to Manchester. The welcome was as warm as ever and the menu both varied, tasty and well presented. We had the scallops and cucumber carpaccio to start with which were both excellent. We followed with the lobster tortellini and the quiche which were top class in every way. I had... More

We enjoyed a spontaneous weekday lunch at The Market. Our handmade lobster tortellini was divine. The pasta was fresh and light, and the accompanying lobster bisque had the most wonderful flavour. Service was as prompt and friendly as ever, and Chef is a marvel. The food and ambience at The Market are so good that we have arranged a private... More

My partner and I went here for a treat last night. I can safely say we will not be going back. We ordered bread but they had run out of olives. It arrived without any oils or vinegar. Salmon Terrine for starters was average and the Cucumber Carpaccio was covered in salt. Not pleasant at all. We ordered the Rabbit... More

Visited tonight and it was terrible. Waiters were incredibly inattentive and I kept having to awkwardly wave my hand to get their attention. The food was so overpriced. I used a tastecard to get 50% off and still feel like I was ripped off. Portions are so small and nowhere near fancy enough to justify the price. Will never visit... More

Went to this restaurant on 20th August after reading some good reviews, and because I had a Tastecard. It was very quiet, unlike the place down the road which I'd had to drag my friend past on the promise we'd go there next time. Hmm, bit of a clue there. My friend was happy with her choices, which were salmon... More

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
