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.

About 2 months ago my husband and I had a beautiful meal at Rose Garden, a set menu. We were very satisfied and we vowed to return for another set menu. We went on Sunday, this time we were with our daughter. Again, we were happy. Delicious! Oh btw, I am not a vegetarian and never intended to choose a... More

Really enjoyed the food and the price of the set menu. If I had of been paying the full price the average service and stark decor would have annoyed me. However the food can't be faulted. It's a shame that the service stops a very good restaurant from being excellent. More training required for serving staff!

Having been to this restaurant numerous times and also having had my 30th birthday celebration in the upstairs restaurant I thought it was a safe bet when booking for my sister's birthday. We left feeling bitterly disappointed by the experience. We were seated promptly and our drinks order was taken within 5 mins. We the waited another 30mins to order... More

Visited here on a Sunday evening for a birthday meal. The restaurant is small, so I imagine booking is necessary on a weekend and it was pretty busy as we left at about 8.30pm. You're either going to love or hate the decor, it's very minimalist, stark whites and clean edges. But you're not crammed in and service was quick... More

I appreciate that this place serves good food and the wine is also very very good. However the interior is a bit stark and clinical and to pay the high price I want a bit more luxury all round. The waiting on staff were dressed in t-shirts and trainers - I find this look a bit too 'cool' and would... More

We had really good food today. The service was superb, friendly and knowledgeable. We opted for the a starter each and a main. We were pretty delighted and impressed over all. I was disappointment by my Yorkshire pudding. Otherwise my Sunday lunch was lovely. My girlfriend loved her main. Thought there was actually slightly too much which is a good... More
