“Very good food at great prices”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

You have only two choices: lobster a d chips or steak and chips. That's it, no starters, no sides. The lobster comes steamed or grilled, cut in half and served with thin French fries, a small green salad in a beautiful dressing and a a claw shaped device for cracking open the lobster's claw. The meat was juicy and meaty. Very good.
The steak was well cooked and came also with fries and salad. Nice that the meal comes with tomato sauce, mustard and mayonnaise without having to ask. Both meals are £15 each. Bargain!
There were 4 desserts on offer. I had a knickerbocker glory which was a magnificent pile if fruit, ice cream and raspberry cream. Magnificent.
The service was ok, not very attentive but no real problems. Alto is the hotel's second restaurant and I imagine it could be quite quiet on a weeknight. On a Friday night it was busy enough and had a good atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this place.

“Simple - but good”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went to this restaurant in the Radisson Blu Hotel in central Manchester with my son and daughter-in-law who live in Manchester.
It is a modern bar-type eatery with wooden floors and plain plastered walls - which made it difficult to hear conversation when nearby tables were full.
The format is simple - either steak or lobster, both served with chips and salad - for £15.
My steak was well seasoned and cooked as I requested - very tasty. The others had lobster which came in its shell with nutcrackers and pick. They thought the lobster was tasty but a lot of effort for not too much meat. The chips and salad were good with the latter coming with a nice dressing. Additional chips and/or salad are available on demand at no extra cost - nice touch.
The wine list was good, albeit very pricey - £30 for a nice Alsace wine which is normally found priced at £15 - £20. The waiter brought the wrong bottle which was a bit worrying!
Overall food was good - quality and value; service less than attentive - the price of the wine was out of keeping with the format of the restaurant.
Overall an enjoyable meal, which with a few tweaks could have been excellent.

“Now renamed The Steak and Lobster”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Because all it sells are Steaks and Lobsters, this is within the Radisson Edwardian Blu, it is open for early evening suppers ie pre theatre, which is great.The food is very simple with either a steak or lobster however you like it done. It arrives with frites and salad and is basic but good.Dessert menu is limited to just three items, we had the Knickerbocker glory, which was fine.The main selling factor is, you know the price before you start £15 for steak or lobster not including booze or dessert.

“Not 5*”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Woobly tables, unattentive staff and slow delivery of food - if in the area and your budget stretches to 5* go to the Opus One in the same hotel
