We happened upon the Grill On The Alley one Saturday afternoon while out shopping in Manchester. I had read various positive reviews about the place but hadn't gotten around to trying it out so far. We were greeted upon arrival with friendly banter from the staff and even though they were rather busy we were given a table by the... More

Went for a rare romantic evening and it didn't disappoint. The staff were helpful, personable and on the ball without being pushy. The food was gorgeous as were the cocktails. I've recommended it to everyone I know. I couldn't fault anything.

I've eaten here numerous times over the last two years maybe 10-12 times I once went 2 nights on the trott because I enjoyed it so much. I've had all the steaks including the chateaux briand and ALWAYS thoroughly enjoyed it. I usually have the sharing platter (to myself) to start or two starters because it's hard to choose as... More

I've been to grill on the alley many times before and have never been let down. My last visit continued this amazing streak!! The staff make you feel very welcome and nothing is 'too much trouble' for them. Always accommodating, efficient and very friendly. The atmosphere here is ideal for any occasion, I don't know how they do it but... More

We visited Grill on the Alley prior to watching Jersey Boys (which was fantastic) Really impressed. Great service. I had mussels in cream sauce as a starter which were delicious. I ordered barbary duck for my main course which was lovely, but the madeira jus was a bit congealed. My husband had duck spring rolls which he said were lovely... More
