“Nice but little”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Nice food - good vegetarian choice - however - the portions are small little apologies. The meaty options were quite sizable. Others in my group got to enjoy nice portions of handcut chips. I felt their Sweet potato Croquet was lacking in size and substance, even though it was a nice snack. Some side portion of veg maybe guys?
Their Sponge puddings were nice and I really enjoyed the Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Thank you for the feedback. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the dishes you tried; we do try to make our vegetarian alternatives different and appealing. I’m sorry that you weren’t so satisfied with the size of the dish, it’s a new addition to the menu and this hasn’t been brought to our attention before now. We offer a range of vegetables and our thick cut chips as side orders that can be added to your meal. The sponge puddings are from our bar menu, sourced locally from a small company so we’re glad you liked this end to your meal. We love getting your constructive feedback as we look to improve what we do in the future.

“Attentive and personal as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We love coming to The Lowry Restaurant and have been dining here for years! The staff are always extremely friendly and go above and beyond to make sure we have a great night! A top tip would be to order interval desserts if you can! We always do it and it's such a treat to come back to your table in the interval for coffee and dessert! We even sometime have dessert and then come back for a cheeseboard! My partner is gluten free, we used to phone up in advance to make sure the chef was aware but they have now adapted their menu so that it's very gf friendly and only needs small tweaks to each dish so we've never really had any fuss about this. I've also been to the 'Fine Dining Night' for the past 2 years in a row- I think it tends to be around aug/sept and oh my goodness I can still recall the spiced eccles cake with hot apple cider and lancashire cheese bombs! If they're doing it again this year then I will definitely be going! The Food is great! Oh and ALWAYS order the thick cut chips!!! They are to die for!

Thank you for your kind words and recommendations about The Lowry Restaurant and our staff. We always aim to accommodate dietary needs and take pride in knowing that what we offer is seen as the highest of standards. We also love our thick cut chips!

We will be working with the Salford Food and Drink Festival again this year, so look out for details in the summer.

“Elegance and excellence combine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

A bright modern and elegant dining room with white table cloths and silver cutlery fuses traditional and contemporary fine dining. The service was excellent as was the choice, quality and value. The whole experience over lunch was relaxing and everything about the restaurant impressed.

“Service above-and-beyond the call of duty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went for a pre-theatre family lunch - the food was lovely, the views wonderful, the prices very reasonable and the staff professional and helpful. On our way home when we realized my daughter left behind a book (a Christmas gift) somewhere in the Lowry complex, we thought that would be the last we'd see of it (she was in tears, I should note). A few days later I received a call from the restaurant. They found the book, realized it was us, and after I offered to send a cheque to pay for postage (as we wouldn't be in the area for a long time), they refused and said they would post it. Two days later, our front doorbell rang and there was a member of staff with the book! His parents lived nearby and he kindly brought the book to our house! Now, how often do you get service like that???!!! We were so impressed with how kind and thoughtful the staff were that we are spreading the word!

“most enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Spent a day looking around the Lowry Collection and then a lovely lunch at the restaurant. It was
tasty food, not much atmosphere as there was only one other table eating in here. But we got a lovely table near the window and the food was above average, the staff were pleasant enough, if I was to criticise one thing it would be portion size
