Visited a while back for my friends birthday. The night went well and even though there was a problem with our meal the manager was very helpful in sorting it out immediately. great place and lovely food.

Cocktails are very good and the food is excellent. Staff didn't seem to 'up-sell' the premium steaks as is so often the case at steak restaurants. When it comes to the dessert menus, the apple tart is a must. The only thing that was a little frustrating is that we were sat next to a large table of whom half... More

Took advantage of the 50% off food offer and went for the special fillet steak. The best we've had for a long time especially without any sauce to capture the great flavour of the meat. Service was slick given it was very busy with pree theatre custom. Wines were a bit pricey but the Merlot came up trumps.

Myself and some colleagues came to the restaurant for a late christmas lunch. The interior of the building was very classy and well decorated and the food was really really good, although the cheeseburger was quite bland which is why i only put 4 stars. The rest of the food however was great (I had 3 courses). All of my... More

We've already been twice this month taking advantage of the 50% off food deal. Chose the fillet steak last time-good choice. Cooked well and very tender.Might be an idea to do a 50% off the wine-this is a tad expensive, even for town. No real ale either. Probably time to go teetotal! Definitely worth a visit, at least until the... More

This is a lovely restaurant in a great spot in Manchester. You're virtually adjacent to King Street (great shopping street), Spinningfields, between a triangulation of the Opera House, Bridgewater Hall, and other venues, and not far away from the Arndale. I think The Grill markets the brand as a specialist steak house. The interior is lovely and chilled. We went... More

Ate here yesterday, taking full advantage of the "50% off food" January promotion booking at the restaurant. Haven't been for 5 years and unfortunately it seems that this place isn't what it once was. When we arrived for our booking, with a 2 year old, we were sat right under a loud JBL speaker. A stupid place to seat a... More

Six of us visted this weekend for a 30th Birthday having all dined at GOTA in the past. Firstly, we were disappointed to sit down fifteen minutes late. The bar area was already packed and it was a real push to hang around waiting. Once we were seated, we were given a table that really should have seated four. We... More
