Perfect if you like steak or lobster

Ate here on a Monday night without having booked. The service was excellent, friendly and professional. My partner and I ordered one steak and one lobster and shared.

Very good service. We went for the steak cooked medium. Wasn't really impressed. The cut of meat really wasn't good enough.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant, I am extremely happy to read that you enjoyed the service during your visit. With Rib eye being our option of steak, there can be more marbling on some steaks than others. I do apologise that on this occasion it was not to your liking and I do... More

I booked a table at Steak and Lobster in Manchester after hearing about the London branch. I had high expectations. The restaurant itself is very well presented and the staff are more than helpful. I ordered the steak which was fine - not worth the £18 though. It was no better than your average gastropub steak. Unlimited fries and salad,... More

Dear Reviewer, I would like to apologise for the lapse in our usual standards. If a guest is not 100% happy, we will happily replace any food or beverage item that is not to their liking. The 'retro' theme of our desserts has proved very successful but we appreciate that it is not to everyone's taste. We do hope that... More

We visited on Mothers Day, which i'm not sure whether it was a good thing or a bad thing, but on the basis we always take "mother" (of our daughter) out on mothers day then why brake the habit of a life time.

I was in Manchester and came across this restaurant, so decided to have an early afternoon meal. It was the name that attracted me initially. We went in and it was reasonably quiet with a handful of other diners, but plenty of staff. We were in no rush and assumed the service would be quick. So we ordered starters and... More

Nice and simple, Steak or Lobster....Ate here for lunch on Saturday whilst waiting for our room to be ready at the Radisson Blu hotel where this restaurant is situated.

Had an evening out here with hubby. Thought it would be amazing as I love Lobster and he loves Steak. We booked a table. Arrived seated straight away.

Went there for family meal on weekend and tried their steak / lobster deal £18. Location is easy to find as it's inside a hotel. Environment was alright though in my opinion, a bit too dark. Food wise, my Mum and I had lobster while my family had steaks. The lobster was overcooked and it was too tough to chew.... More
