Not bad but check your bill

I visited with my girlfriend last year and was rather underwhelmed. First of all, they had lost our booking, however they did manage to find us a table despite it being a busy Saturday evening. It was still quite embarrassing though. The food was great and so was the atmosphere and decor, but we... read more

This is the second time we have ate here. We love the venue it's really nice. As it was close to Christmas when we visited all the decorations were up and the lighting was really nice. We ate here with friends they had never been to Manchester before and we wanted them to have a good experience. We ordered from... More

Went for lunch with my partner. I was expecting great things from this restaurant, the best was the actual building that had the wow factor. The food was mediocre, certainly nothing to write home about, the iced tap water tasted as if it was straight from the canal, then they add service charge to your bill, this is not clearly... More

Been waiting months to try this place out and wished I had waited longer! Seen all the reviews but having visited last weekend I have to say I was very disappointed! Serving staff arrogant and illusive, food over priced and under cooked. Wine prices just a joke. I don't mind paying top prices if you get the full package but... More

Me and 2 friends who had met up for a reunion went here as a treat to start off a great night for a meal, this review is based on our experience a couple of years ago, we went in and got greeted straight away, didn't have any problems getting a table. We did wait a little while to be... More

We were treated to a meal by our eldest and his wife and generally had a great night in Manchester topped off with a decent meal, However when paying these prices I expect a bit more that we got. Olives were OK, Garlic bread too was OK if bland. A little too much pressure was applied to us ordering. Choices... More

I booked to go to Rosso for last night which was the night before my anniversary from the day I got together with my partner. After reading mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to think at all. After parking a while away and arriving a little bit late, it was certainly worth it. Doors opened for you as you enter... More

Rosso is set in an old trading hall of fantastic character and architecture. Food is good and portion sizes are generous. The service is always good. I visit Rosso's regularly for both business and personal dining. Children friendly, although it's not likely to be full of noisy families! Rosso offers some good midweek lunch time offers. Well worth a visit!

I have very little to say other than we had lunch at rosso, a service charge was added underhandedly to our bill making our experience disappointing and I was physically ill soon after we left Rosso establishment, but what part of the meal made me vomit in the street I really do not know. I would not ever revisit once... More
