Atmosphere was fantastic and vibrant Steak taste exceptional - had the rump (medium rare) which was lovely and good portion. Possibly one of the best steak house I have ever been. We also had the sharing platter as starter and it taste amazing. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended place for a steak.

Went here for Sunday lunch , searched for a good restaurant who did Sunday Roast and this appeared. We booked and arrived at 3pm and seated immediately. After scanning the menu we all opted for Roast beef and the waitress then pointed out the beef had all been sold. We were rather disappointed but we were offered steak for the... More

The service was excellent. The food was overpriced, if I pay £20 for my main course I should expect quality at least if not quantity. We felt like we got left over chips. Poor wine . Cocktails where good. Also very very loud so not so good for first dates. I wouldn't come back here.

As the title says, I had Wagyu fillet steak, it was £55 and I was uncomfortable paying that for a steak, but I am glad that's what I went for, it was the best steak I've ever had. I had chicken skewers with satay sauce as a starter, my wife had potted mackerel starter and sea bass main, she said... More

Loved the live music even though it was quite loud, it was good for a Saturday night! Had lots of cocktails which were lovely! Only bad thing was that the steaks were quite chewy but other then that it was great.

I was in Manchester for an annual business trip, and decided to check out The Grill on the Alley. I ordered the Ribeye and added the surf option (baby scallops, prawns, and crayfish). The steak came out a perfect medium rare and the surf addition complimented the steak extremely well. The unexpected portion of the meal was the AMAZING mashed... More

Not sure what happened here but on my last two visits the service has been horrific. Firstly we waited 45 mins to be seated when we booked in advance to be told that the host had forgpt andwas very apologetic. Continually had to try to get waitress attention to order. In the end I had to leave the table and... More
