My husband, daughter and I went to the Rose Garden this week and weren't sure what to expect . What a surprise!! The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. The swivel chairs were soo comfortable that I could have sat for much longer than the 2 hours we were there. We all had 3 courses- summer bbq was delicious as... More

Food was lovely, however the portions are a little on the small side so you need to order at least 2 courses. Not much for the decoration either its very clinical and lacks character. In addition the location of our table meant that I was wedged in the corner and had no room to move my chair. Glad i went... More

Having eaten several times at Rose Garden. Tonight I was amazed by the persistent quality on offer. I had white bait appetiser and then a first for me squirrel fashioned into a perfect suet pudding. The lamb main was to die for and my wife was equally thrilled with her BBQ summer trio starter and sea trout main. A bottle... More

Lovely, lovely food. Good vegetarian options which are extremely tasty and plentiful. Good wine selection and nice sparkling cocktails. Posh Pink Lemonade is bloody delicious too. Service is friendly.

Took my parents for my mum's birthday. The presentation of the 3 courses was impeccable but such tiny portions. My mum was even hungry after the 3 courses and she has the smallest of appetites and has such a tiny frame!! I felt the refurb was a bit bland and lacked atmosphere. Very disappointed.

Recently went with some friends for dinner, service was ok apart from our waiter being slightly too attentive which became quite annoying. Food was ok, nothing special and we would not rush back.

Booked the upstairs restaurant for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and the restaurant did not disappoint. We have dined here many times before and love the interior and atmosphere of the place hence why we chose it. The service was absolutely impeccable from the moment we arrived. Attentive but not obtrusive and helpful with ordering from the wine list. We... More

Tuna carpaccio and mackerel starters finely balanced, lamp rump tender, properly pink, stuffed courgette on a really good risotto- the ingredients are seasonal-sea trout, peas- the skill in the kitchen evident. The last time we visited some while ago things had got a bit salty- the chef's palate was definitely back on form

I attended the Rose Garden for a friend's birthday. Although I live in the area, I had never gotten a chance to go in there until then. The food is amazing and the interior is flawless, literally. The all white interior with the odd neon colours give the Rose Garden edge and it being all white allows for one to... More

At last, a really good quality restaurant in Manchester! Very interesting menu which changes regularly, beautifully cooked and presented food, good service and very pleasant atmosphere. Not cheap but very good value.
