Very trendy restaurant with a great vibe. Full of life in a beautiful old building. The food was superb & not over priced for its location. Look forward to another visit sometime.

We visited the restaurant with family for a meal in the evening and pre meal cocktails. Neither the drinks nor the food could be faulted and the service was reasonably quick and unobtrusive. Similarly it is a very impressive location, a high ceilinged high Victorian room. However in my view they need to decide whether they are a bar or... More

I took my family for a celebratory lunch, we were not disappointed. We were offered a free bottle of prosecco with the graduation lunch. A very nice touch. The food is exceptionally good, presented well, with a twist to the description. The staff and service discreet, but attentive, missing nothing. Very good. The decor is lovely. Fab wallpaper, the lampshades... More

Music far too loud - couldn't hear my dining guest or the staff. - It was pointed out to us the that several items on the menu were not available. - Portions were too small; both my starter and main courses mainly consisted of pearl barley -with either sweetcorn or peas. -...

Visited room last week and had a lovely meal. Excellent, prompt service and tasty food. If I had one negative it would be that the meals are quite small portions, however it is quite reasonably priced for the quality of food served. My father absolutely loved the ferrero desert and think it deserves a special mention!

I have eaten at Room restaurant in Manchester twice over past week; once you experience this amazing restaurant, it is hard not to return! On the first occasion I dined with family and had the spring chicken; beautiful succulent chicken on wilted greens and mashed potato, so simple but beautifully presented. Other dishes on our table included the Thai green... More

I think this is probably the most disappointing meal I have ever had in Manchester. Arrived, waitress was cold and unwelcoming. Ordered scallops to start - these were queen scallops and for about £10 you got 2 - weren't even cooked particularly well. Main meal I had pork cooked in hay which was overcooked and cold and my girlfriend had... More

My first experience at Room was a pleasant one. I chose from the lunch menu, which entailed 2 or 3 courses. I had the rump stake (with an added side of hand cut chips) and the ice cream and sorbet selection. They obviously haven't updated the online menu, as there was a chocolate brownie dessert I was really looking forward... More

Sat down in the impressive room...very good service from all, but not up to the standard of Michael caines restaurant. Food very good and excellent selection of wine and international larger...would go back for an early evening special.
