delicious, watch out for service charge

Great food, unlimited chips and the most delicious salad is a nice touch. A bit pricey, but as this is based in the Radisson this is to be expected. Great friendly and helpful staff, my only comment is I object to having an "optional" 10% service charge added to the bill. We have been a few times... read more

Have been to the Radisson Edwardian Blu before so we were expecting top quality food....was disappointed to find that the lobster wasn't up to expectations and the steak was rather mediocre...for just two options on the menu you'd expect that they would be amazing. The side orders didn't make up for it but were very good.

It took more than 30 min to get the orders in, we had to literally go to the counter and ask for somebody to clear the table and get the dessert menu, twice!!! When we asked for the bill, we still had to wait for another 30 min until we decided to head out and pay at the entrance. There... More

Cocktails were delicious and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. For £18 the lobsters was surprisingly tasty. The disappointment came when the bill arrived, we were charged £5 for a bottle of water and a 10% service charge. This wasnt clear on the menu and seemed excessive for only 2 people. Bit of a shame as overall the restaurant... More

We booked dinner here for an anniversary treat as we were staying at the Radisson Blu Edwardian where the restaurant is. We were not disappointed. The girl who served us (I can't remember her name but I'm sure she was Spanish) was attentive, funny, polite and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, the drinks flowed and the...

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

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
