I can't speak highly enough of Restaurant Bar and Grill. Exquisite fresh food, stunning service from beginning to end and an abundance of happy, friendly and professional staff to welcome us and see to our every need. Events staff were also brilliant to deal with and We will be paying regular visits back to the restaurant.

We were attending a concert with some friends in Manchester and decided to arrive early and find somewhere to have dinner first. The interior of this restaurant appealed to us as did the menu and we decided to give it a try. The interior is very contemporary, all black and white and chrome. The restaurant is on the first floor... More

I was recommended this restaurant from someone who lives in Manchester. Although we arrived roughly 20-30 minutes late due to becoming lost the restaurant still welcomed us. We headed upstairs to the out door terrace bar, weather was beautiful and the bar staff gave me and my partner two free tequila shots to celebrate my birthday. Our table was ready,... More

I've eaten here several times on the last year, with friends and/or family and sometimes both. It's always good, and the prices are very reasonable. If you join their frequent diners card scheme the credits towards future visits can be very generous indeed. If you ever visited Zinc in Manchester, you'll find some familiar faces here.

I've eaten here 6 or 7 times now, both with clients for business purposes and also personally on family occasions. The food is unreal, I've never had a bad thing to say about any of the starters, mains or desserts that I've been served. Suggest to opt for scallops or mussels to start.... Both out of this world! However other... More

Visited here with another couple on good Friday. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend the filet steak and lobster. The atmosphere was brilliant and so was the service. I definitely will be returning soon

Visited this restaurant over the Easter holiday. I had oysters followed by a Tandoor Monkfish. The food was fantastic. The menu is excellent with a great range of meat and fish. The staff are really friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great. The restaurant is a little on the pricey side but well worth shelling out for.

Having visited the restaurant at night I thought I would give it a try for Saturday afternoon drinks. The weather was decent so the bar on the terrace was open and the heaters meant that you could stay outside and enjoy your drinks. Decided to stay for a bite to eat which was a good move as the food was... More
