“Really good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

The menu is of course very simple so you don't need to spend long choosing. The steak is very good. You can have as many chips as you want, and extra salad, and whilst the room isn't the best space for a restaurant, this is a useful spot, particularly for a lunch.

“Not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We dined here for our anniversary , I had the lobster , "served warm"......my partner had the steak, that was ok. The wine shot the price up........there are other fish restaurants in manchester I will visit before returning to ALTO

“Good food but not sure whether we were in a pub or a disco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Went for a meal today with friends. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection service was ok but could have been better. The let down for us was that the restaurant appeared to be a cross between a pub and a disco with football at one end and loud disco music at the other people where jumping up shouting and cheering as their team scored not what you expect when eating we told the restaurants had gone through a refurb which i have to say not for the better we then moved to the bar in opus and ordered a floater coffee this came in a normsl tea cup not what gou expect the bar and tables littered with dirty pots having said this the food was good value for money if you dont mind eating in a pub

“Great concept - great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Situated in the Radisson Edwardian, the location gives the place a headstart. I found others in my group to be suspicious, can this kind of place really offer Lobster or Steak for this price? Yes they can and they DO! Can't miss it, nice place, well set and decorated and food is spot on!

“'Screech'!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The food was fine - steak for moi - although, for the price (c.£15.00 per plate) methinks the accompaniment (slimline fries and salad - served in little bowls - see photograph) was a little on the small side. That said, extra portions were offered to us - but only towards the completion of our consumption.
The choice of beers was nothing special - just the usual. The wine list was fine - as was that tipple or two or three...!
The cheese board was fine except for the (as usual everywhere it would seem) inadequate amount of biscuits / wafers. Fortunately a 'top up' was provided upon request.
The service was alright, if a little slow. This may have been down to staff numbers. The staff though were fine. That said, a nubile young foreign waitress (Eastern European) always had to repeat her lines to us - she was perhaps a little quiet, but, the loud (for the setting) musak did not help !
The bill for two came to £83.00 - ouch - it was good, but... A word of warning - a 10% service charge comes as part of it - looking on the bright side - no need to tip !

Good to see this fine old building thriving - even at what was effectively the back of stage area !

Niggles ? - aye - the loose seating has a nasty tendency to screech upon the hard floor when moved.
