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.

The Radission has a choice of 2 restaurants, one for steak and lobster and Opus One so decided to try this one for an evening of high class dining and not disappointed. The restaurant is beautifully designed and perfect for a special evening. You walk through a very lively bar to get to the restaurant and that seemed a great... More

Good staff who were very attentive and took care of some special requirements with ease. The place itself was over the top, reminded us of a scene out of a horror film, too much red and black - maybe more suited to a gentleman's club! The prices were on the steep side and the food wasn't up to scratch. (Ordered... More

This is a fine dining restaurant serving sophisticated food. Do not expect it to be cheap then. I took my 14 year old son as a treat when we were on holiday. We were staying at the hotel itself and my son fancied it. I have stayed at the hotel before and had never bothered trying it, but agreed to... More

It was the perfect combination. We were full when we finished eating. Would absolutely go again while in Manchester. We were there July of 2012. I... More

Went to Opus One on the 1st of August to treat a few friend while they were on a visit to Manchester. We all opted for the savoury gentlemen's afternoon tea.

The opus one experience was a lovely 4 course meal, with an appetiser thrown in. Each course was fantastic and dessert was divine.
