Large contemporary, comfortable dining room, with self service breakfast buffet. Good quality, fresh food. Very nice in the evening with large windows over looking Deansgate. Ground floor, easy disabled access

Good choice of hot food and fresh fruit. There is a shortage of staff members working so it is worth going early to get a good service.

We were looking forward to our family meal having paid lots of money in advance for what looked a great Christmas Dinner. Arrived at 2.45 for 3 pm and waited and waited. After about an hour asked the manager and he said sorry forgot your table is ready. Sat down for the meal and waited and waited. Not enough staff or common courtesy! After about half an hour the entertainment finished. We were left alone to our own devices. We do have a sense of humour luckily. The food was good but the total experience was spoiled . We expected more and will not be back! Beware.

My husband and I like to go to the Podium as an occasional treat. We have always found it an absolute pleasure. The restaurant has a great, relaxing atmosphere, the staff are always friendly, polite and attentive, and the food is fantastic. The set menu is great value, especially as they accept the Taste Card, which makes it less than £30 for a 3 course meal for 2 people.

Brilliant.

I love this restaurant but last night's visit let it down - even though the staff are very friendly, the service was slow and the waiters were slightly disorganised.

The soup my mum had was excellent, the salmon I had was also very good. However, the turkey that I had was a little dry with very little gravy.

Overall, I would recommend this restaurant. It is expensive but people who like great food will really enjoy this place.
