This is my new favourite restaurant. We went for Sunday lunch and every mouthful was heaven. Snowy white table cloths. Comfortable seats and plenty of space between the tables. A truly special experience.

We were going to the theatre so wanted a decent quality meal served early. We decided to try the Brasserie on the second floor which is quite close to the entertainment venue we were to attend.

We booked on line and chose our time slot. We were shown promptly on arrival to our table (knowing by what time it would be needed again). The service was quick - but certainly not rushed - and the staff were friendly in spite of being pretty busy.

The food was very good in terms of both taste and presentation. The set cost was £20 for 3 courses and an optional 10% sevice charge is automatically added to your bill.

We didn't quite know what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised by our experience - well done!

We have eaten at the Second Floor Restaurant many times, it has always impressed both in term of the inventive food, extensive wine list and immaculate service.
The last visit was in December - memorable as our friend announced his engagement part way through the meal, we ordered champagne between the main course and dessert to celebrate and a special extra dessert with 'Congratulations' on the plate arrived unprompted. Yes it might be a little more expensive than other places in Manchester but it is the place to go for a special meal

We booked the early evening supper club, as a pre-concert dinner on a Friday night. It's a really trendy oasis of calm! Lovely staff and service. The supper club is a short menu with interesting choices and vegetarian options. The food exceeded our expectations. (Particularly the watermelon, feta and thyme starter!) Their own label Cote du Rhone was a fantastic bottle!
Would highly recommend supper club or the a la carte menu, as that's very reasonable too.
Given it a £££ as it's a fab setting, however, the cost is nearer to ££
