Visited velvet with a few friends on a warm Friday evening- we had the good value pizza and wine deal- £20ish for 2 pizzas and a bottle. I'm a bit spoiled with pizza restaurants in Manchester but the pizza I has was pretty shocking- slimy, under-cooked and not to be repeated. The atmosphere was decent but not somewhere if return...

Went here for 1st time whilst visiting canal street for our anniversary. We both ordered the steak and were surprised at the speed and efficiency of our meal. We both like our steak specific ways and although you always get asked what way you like it, very rarely do you get it, but very surprised at the steaks arrived exactly... More

I've lost count of how many times I've been to Velvet since living in Manchester, and really should have reviewed it earlier. We were here again a couple of days ago. Velvet has some of the best and varied food that you can get, whilst still being able to walk in off the street 80% of the time. We visited... More

Visited here not long ago with friends usually always good but this time very disappointing , Food was tasty but the presentation lacks when it is served on chipped crockery , More disappointing was the fact that after bringing it up together with a dish problem we had it was discussed behind the bar where we could hear it and...

After being ignored for 5 minutes by 3 rude bar staff who obviously thought they were too cool to serve us we walked out and and went to Eden down the road where we were treated with friendliness and warmth, in complete contrast to Velvet. We won,t be going back.

Sorry, but we're 8 months late with the review. We visited Canal Street, and Velvet, during Christmas week 2013 and we loved it! The below-street ambience and the food we ate was absolutely great. It's not haute cuisine, but it's still a treat for anybody visiting the "wrong" side of Portland Street and all the gay atmosphere it offers. Loved... More

The food is sublime here and the service has always been attentive. The steak is always cooked as requested and melts in the mouth, it's so tender that you could cut it with a tea spoon! The soup is always homemade and delicious and the pizza is bout of this world, well worth a visit if you're looking for quality... More

We went here last night 8/8/2014 it has a lot of charm and the serving staff are friendly and pleased to wait on you. Food nice well presented and hot, we also had a bottle of very nice wine. The only thing I would say that I was unhappy with were the table positions I felt like the people next... More
