Food was ok nothing special. Skin on chips never work. Roast potatoes were two hard for 10 year old to cut. Thought charge of £22 for 2 glasses of wine was excessive.

Visited on a Saturday evening - it was really busy so we had to wait a few minutes for our table. The staff were really good and we found the service during our visit to be excellent. Menu is a little disappointing - Starters are all pretty standard and traditional - nothing really different there. A couple of us chose... More

My husband and I visit Grill on the Alley every January to make the most of the 50% off deal. We are also frequent visitors throughout the year too. As always the whole evening was spot on! The food and atmosphere were brilliant. But above and beyond the service provided by Ged was fantastic! Ged has severed us before and... More

So excited about going here had been wanting to go for some time. My Fillet steak was cooked rare instead of medium rare and had a vile taste of liver. It was bad the Manager did agree and rectify this and offered me another dish, he was great but I have to say I won't be going back, I don't... More

We're a small team of 6 so this restaurant was a good choice for a tasty meal. We could choose from both the Christmas as well as usual menu, which was a plus. Food was great! Bad sides were: the 6 of us had to squeeze into a small booth obviously made for 4 people (as designers, we saw the... More

Went here after hearing good things so tried it when the half price offer was on.The food was nice but very small portions.The level of noise was off the scale you had to shout across the table.I will not be rushing back

My boyfriend treated me to a steak here for my birthday and it was incredible. It was worth the extra money to try one of the better quality steaksand it was one of the best I've ever had (I have had a lot of steaks!). I only have two negative points though they aren't negative enough to affect my rating.... More

This is my favourite restaurant in the whole of Manchester and yet again the service and food exceeded our expectations! We were served by Sarah who single handedly made our evening, one to remember. She was so attentive and was always on hand should we want any extra assistance. The fillet steak was 'melt in the mouth' and my partners... More

Had our works Christmas party here. It was chaos. We were booked in at 3pm and they'd run out of bottles of water, we were in the basement and it was rammed and really hot. Then the air conditioning unit started leaking water all over one of my colleagues and the waiter had to fetch towels and stand on the... More
