We had heard of steak and lobster in Manchester and thought it was a great concept. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived but the food was fast and tasted amazing. Cannot fault a thing, we will be back.

Our first experience of this relatively small restaurant chain and a vey good one! Menu choices were simple; steak or lobster. All food was freshly cooked and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Staff were very helpful with the selection of wine and friendly throughout. Food was great value although be prepared to spend a little more on wine.

The concept behind steak and lobster is great. Its a super simple menu which means that the limited options available must be perfect.... right? Not quite... my husband and I both ordered the grilled lobster. Neither of us have eaten a lot of lobster before, but enough to know that it was a little overcooked and lacking seasoning - it...

Food is decent for the price of it. £17 for a lobster with unlimited salad and fries is a good price. First of all , I wasn't a fun of oil on the plate.. I ordered grilled lobster, it was a bit tasteless and the shell was really hard to crack compared to other lobsters i had in the past... More

visited here last night with my husband, as part of his 50th celebrations. We had crab and lobster fishcakes to start and they were lovely. We both had the Steak which was cooked to perfection. Staff very accommodating and friendly and the venue sleek and calming. They even brought out a 'happy birthday' dessert which was a really nice touch.

we love steak, we love lobster so thought we would love this restaurant. Unfortunately the steak was small and overcooked and the lobster was very small. More like burger and langoustine! waiting staff very friendly and got served quickly but the food was a definite disappointment, will not be rushing back.

No nonsense meal in the city and it's such great value. The only thing you really need to choose is how you want the lobster cooked and whether you want any of the starters. Don’t let the simple menu fool you though, the quality of the lobster here is fabulous. Mo and I have been a couple of times and... More
