I have been to this restaurant many times before and have always found the food excellent. This time we went on the 50% off offer and I was left disappointed. Ordered the chateaubriand which is one of the most expensive steaks on their menu. When we asked our waitress how should it be cooked she responded with 'how do you... More

Had not been here for a while. Tempted by the January 50% offer. Ordered a burger it was fine. Bottom bread a little day soggy. Ambience was very good and service fine. Would revert back to a steak next time

Enjoyed a Saturday night meal at 'The Grill on the Alley' The restaurant was very busy, however as we had previously booked we didn't have to wait for a table. The food was good as was the service, if I have one gripe however it would be that the side dishes are meagre and expensive ( I thought my husband... More

Having deliberated over restaurants in Manchester for out recent visit, I decided on The Grill On the Alley based on previous reviews, menu, pictures and location. I was fully aware of the prices I was expecting to pay but sadly the experience did not justify those prices. Ordered two steaks off of the Best of British menu and they were... More

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime and couldn't believe how busy it was. Not what I expected at all. Came for a birthday treat and was expecting something special but was just a normal chain kind of restaurant really. Food was really nice and worth the money but just wasn't anything special. Would definitely come back but not with the expectations... More

Ate at the Grill on the Alley last Wednesday unplanned. Service was ok, but missing a little something, maybe a little enthusiasm or something. Food was lovely, really enjoyable. I would expect some items to have an optional side rather than having to buy Chip/mash etc seperate but was lovely food. Nice atmosphere for lunchtime.

Ate here today with colleagues for lunch. We used the 50% off deal which is lunch and dinner time Monday to Friday in January (think it's until five) on Friday. Well worth a visit especially when this offer is on. If your having trouble booking on line of you call them they will book it for you and you get... More

The place has a nice feeling about it and was very busy. We were happliy taken to our table despite being early and I noticed dirty crockery. It was... More

My partner and I visited here for a mid week lunch just before Christmas. We were seated immediately and the place was decorated beautifully for the season. It has a great warm atmosphere and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. I had steak and chips which was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The wine selection was good and the... More

There was only a couple of empty tables upstairs and we were shown to one of these straightaway. We ordered drinks and my bottled beer came with a glass that had... More
