The service is exceptional and the menu is varied and delicious you can dine inside or out but make sure you book in advance to ensure a good spot Price is mid range but... More

Me and my boyfriend met up with a couple who we met in Majorca in Manchester as its in the middle. They recommended we come here and booked us a table.

We attended a wedding in Manchester and had the wedding breakfast here. We were allocated a private dining room which was very nice. Gemma the Events Manager was extremely helpful in organising the equipment for the videos and ensuring everything ran smoothly. The staff were all pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We had a choice of menu and... More

What an amazing memorable evening at Manchester's The Restaurant Bar and Grill. It started from the friendly reception as we were greeted at the door to the efficient bubbly service at the bar to take our order. I had a family that had travel from as far as Geneva to help celebrate my birthday and felt a million dollars as... More

My husband and I ate here on a night out. The staff were friendly & prompt with service. Our table should've been on the terrace but we were put inside, we would've asked to be moved but it was a rainy night & it was warmer inside. The food was cooked well and the portions were large. Our table rocked... More

This is part of a national chain of restaurants including Bank and Piccolino. Judging by the behaviour of today's lunchtime clientele, it felt more bar than restaurant. The ground floor is entirely devoted to a bar. The restaurant is on the first floor, but many more tables were occupied by drinkers on an outside terrace stretching the entire length of... More

The restaurant has been around a long time, and through some highs and lows (the introduction of some fierce steak house competition across the city) has come out on top. The introduction of the first floor outdoor terrace and significant improvements in the menu, has revealed a good quality restaurant. The staff are attentive without being overbearing. The outdoor terrace... More
