Description: The dramatically glamorous surroundings of Opus One are a sharp riposte to the Italianate façade of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester in which it is situated. An extravaganza of red chandeliers, glossy black woodwork and antique gold wall hangings give this striking central Manchester restaurant a bold, vibrant ambience. Cuisine is fittingly modern British, with locally sourced produce dressed up in excitingly eclectic flavours.

We had drinks here before a private dinner and the cocktails were great. They did take rather a long time in coming, though the bar was getting very busy with lots of people arriving. Maybe 2 people on the bar at times like that just isn't enough.

Mostly I would say it is because of the food, but now I think my opinion has changed, here is a restaurant where the food albeit expensive is good, the service is also mainly good, if you don't mind your greeting being interrupted by the greeter having to take a phone call, but the ambience is just not to my...
