My husband and I attended Albert's Shed for my birthday on Saturday. I'd found the restaurant through a search engine and then from visiting the website thought we'd give it a go. I booked the table around two weeks before and received confirmation followed up by a telephone call and email to check to booking was still correct.
We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted by a friendly hostess who took us to our table, took our coats and immediately brought us a drink.
Our very friendly waitress then came to take our order. The service of all of the staff we dealt with whilst there was the best I have experienced in a long time. Always checking everything was ok without being overbearing.
I ordered the mushrooms on toast which were the perfect sized portion and taste to die for. This followed by King Prawn & Scallop curry. The food cannot be faulted, the presentation, taste and delivery was outstanding. My husband couldn't help but be tempted with the little pie n peas for starters followed by the Salami & Chilli pizza, he isn't as much of a foody as me but still said everything about it was excellent.
We never felt rushed, I asked if I could have a break before embarking on my cheese & biscuits and there was no rush for me to order.
The evening came to an end by the hostess arranging a taxi who came to the door to collect us. Absolutely fanastic evening all round, beautiful restaurant, great location and amazing service and food. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Been here one/two years ago and I think they were great. However I went there on Monday (May bank holiday) and was disappointed with the food. I ordered oysters for my starter and I could not believed my eyes. out of the 6 oysters they served, 4 of it was.. 'meatless'. I should have complaint when I received it however I did not as I don't feel like complaining or having a bad day as it was my birthday celebration. I have attached a photo for you to judge it yourself. I had beef for main course and the beef is ok but the hand cut chips were a little bit undercooked. My girlfriend ordered scallop for starter and tuna for main course. Scallop is okay however it is a little small and her tuna wasn't cooked pink as she requested. It was slightly over-cooked or the tuna have been slice to thin... I think the restaurant did not expect to be so busy for that day. Overall we did not enjoy the food however the waiter which served us was brilliant.
I do not usually complaint about the food but Albert's Shed have let me down this time.

We've been to this restaurant about 4 times and every time it's been great.

It's a very smart place, as is Albert's in Didsbury.

This time I chose the fillet steak and it was fab. Cooked to perfection and delicious. The sides are great too. Had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert - very generous portion!

All the service staff are lovely and attentive.

I will no doubt return here the next time we are in Manchester.

We went in April 2013, to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.
The service was excellent, the food lovely (unusual to actually be interested in almost every item on the menu - Usually its a choice of 1 or 2 items). A superb evening, and a restaurant I'd happily go to again and again. Not something I've said of any other restaurant where the meal,drinks and tip (I was VERY happy) came to $100 (No Pound key on my keyboard!)
