Went to The Grill on The Alley for our team Christmas lunch. It is quite a few years since I had been but in the past this has always been a good restaurant with great food if you wanted somewhere different to most restaurants without paying a fortune. Our table was booked for 12.30 and all of us were seated... More

The only criticism I can give for this restaurant is that we were seated 20 minutes after our booking time, and on a very crammed table for 7 people. However I believe this was due to the time of year and how busy the restaurant was. As for the food, wow! The most amazing food to ever grace my taste... More

Gorgeous food so glad we found this place. We were sealy quickly without a reservation. The atmosphere was great and had a lovely festive feel. It was very busy but it was to be expected, and it did effect the service. But the food made up for the delay. The manager also came and apologised even though we had no... More

Fantastic restaurant with a good atmosphere, great service and gorgeous food. Steaks are on the pricey side (not as expensive as other restaurants in the area though) but worth every penny.

Came here while we were visiting the Christmas Markets and just stumbled upon it and I'm so glad we did! We had a little wait for a table, but we were able to just grab a drink in the nice bar area. The beef Sunday roast was just to die for and they happily brought us more gravy when we... More

We were booked in for a friends stag night, so were a large group of twenty. This was a Saturday night so the place was absolutely packed, but the service was first rate all evening, not sure how they managed it, given how busy it was. The food was all excellent and we had a great night.

We were a party of seven, four children and three adults. Children's meals, no problems, although on arrival it could have been hotter and the sauce ordered with one of the children's meals was cold. Adults all ordered the beef Sunday roast. The food arrived cold. One of the party did try some of the Yorkshire pudding. At this stage... More

Came to Manchester for my daughters birthday, enjoyed a day shopping then had booked in here (through my blackhouse card 20% off food bill) was sooo busy when we arrived (a little early) only had to wait about 5 mins to be seated (bit of a shame no cloak room but pushed our coats on the end of the bench...

Been here once before. Last time was amazing. To day a little disappointing. Ordered a medium cooked steak, don't think it was near medium. Also got the wrong potatoes, ordered jacked potatoes, got a baked one. So I'm not as thrilled as my last visit. Anyhow, you get a good meal. So you Won't Leave hungry. I'll be back.

Visited for the first time after a friend's recommendation... nice atmosphere, and busy (for a Tuesday). Staff were very attentive without being pushy. The food was extremely good, quickly prepared and delivered, and reasonably priced. A good selection of wines, and some very nice cocktails. Recommended!
