“Decent food, good service and nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

A very trendy and cool looking restaurant but shame the food isn't up to the same standard. Pretty standard pulled pork everything, pizza, burger type menu. I had a pizza which was fine nothing special. It is reasonably priced for food for the location drinks a little expensive.

“The food is average, but the environment is nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

I liked the ambiance, the deco and cocktails.
The food is average, thus overpriced. I had a steak and my boyfriend had a lasagna. Both were bland.

“Could not cope with numbers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Cocktails arrived after the pre dinner nibbles were finished and the wine only arrived after complaining 5 minutes after starting the main course. They cannot cope with Saturday night crowds even though we arrived at 7.00pm. Having to complain spoils the night!

“Artisan Restaurant, Spinning Fields, Manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Being close to the canal side, a former Warehouse has been most tastefully converted into the delightful Artisan restaurant, in the very modernised and pedestrianized Spinning Fields area of downtown Manchester. The available menu is relatively short but has something to appeal to the majority of diners. It is a little on the expensive side but food is very well cooked and presented and close attention is paid to service without being effusive. Highly recommended and my family and I will re-visit when next in Manchester.
