Description: Room is a modern, unique restaurant and cocktail bar located on King Street in the centre of Manchester's commercial and shopping district. An eclectic mix of antique and retro makes this a stunning place to enjoy a private dining experience and we also offer cocktails until late.Our award winning restaurant can cater for up to 120 diners, whilst our bar can cater for up to 80. Room is absolutely perfect for a business lunch, a shopper's retreat or simply somewhere to drop in for a coffee. By night, the restaurant comes alive with the kind of brasserie atmosphere that you would expect within any cosmopolitan city and Room in Manchester is no exception. Enjoy dinner for two in a quiet corner or take a window seat and enjoy your Room with a view.

I will firstly say that I have been to Room for many a cocktails which I would highly recommend.

However, we ate there for the first time last night and were very disappointed with the food! So much so that we would not eat there again. It was overpriced for what you got.

If you compare this restaurant to the likes of San Carlo or Rosso I would say it is nowhere near as good and a lot more expensive. I will stick to the restaurants I know and would not recommend a booking here for food. Cocktails, definitely but food, no!

Also the lighting is too dark in the restaurant area and we all had to get the light on our mobile phones to help us read the menu ( our party age was from 25-31) and we struggled to see the menu.

I took a group of foreign customers to Room hoping for a great experience and was not disappointed (and neither were they!!). The food was delicious as was the wine and the service great without being intrusive. I would recommend this too anyone looking for a special meal and will be sure to go back myself!!!

Great food, presented really well, great service & good central location. The restaurant & decor is very nice too. It is quite expensive but worth it.

Great atmosphere, great service and good menu. The staff are very attentive. There was a problem with our main course so the staff brought us a complimentary dessert (delicious). Great atmosphere in the bar for after work drinks, couples or groups. Not a cheap meal but very nice food generally.

For a first time experience this was probably the best meal Ive had in a long time. We go out regularly so we tend to be a bit fussy. Not much to find in the way of negatives, just take a torch so you can see the menu!!

Fabulous surroundings, amazing lamp shades great waiting staff and the cocktails are superb.

One comment ....the gents need to be spruced up a bit to fit in with the restuarant decor, they seem a bit basic.
