Our first visit here, its reputation is as one of the top restaurants in Manchester, and we were not disappointed by the atmosphere, bar and food, which was excellent. A fantastic setting in the old Reform Club, a beautiful, historic building. The staff were lovely but service was slightly chaotic and I got the distinct impression there was no-one with... More

... due to its prices (as mains start at £18) which is a shame as I rate is as one of the best 2 or 3 restaurants in the whole area. The quality of the food was superb and service excellent. Great décor too with the massive lamps. Treat yourself to a cocktail on arrival. At the moment (Jan 2015)... More

What a great way to see in the New Year. Service faultless. Food and drinks excellent and we'll matched. Atmosphere buzzing. Thank you for a really memorable evening.

Arranged to meet friends here for drinks. The cocktails were amazing, best I have had in ages. Porn star martini best I have ever had, friends had Bonfire night one with bourbon base they loved. Will return!

'Room' is very funky in its decor. Bar is well-stocked (white whisky or saffron gin, anyone?) and the barman was a real pleasure - happy to experiment with new concoctions and throw them away if you weren't happy with the result. The food was really very good, even though we were choosing from the limited Festive Menu (3rd Jan). Service... More

Had a brilliant New Years Eve dinner at Room. Great value for money and service was excellent despite being extremely busy. The atmosphere was amazing and we really enjoyed the whole ambience, food and drinks. An equivalent evening in London would've cost us at least twice as much. Thank you for helping us see in the New Year in style.

Situated in an old Iconic building & had a really excellent meal taken from the Xmas menu, excellent service from the waiters & a nice venue for pre dinner cocktails, would certainly revisit next time in Manchester.

I was a regular diner at Room for many years however on the last two occasions we have been the victims of terrible customer service. The last experience was on a relatively quiet week night, the service was ok for the first two courses (however the waitress who served us was unable to answer our questions on the dishes without...
