“Did not even know it was there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I have been to the Lowry theatre about 4 times this year and always presumed the restaurant was actually the bar and café but last night we ventured further and found the restaurant. We had hospitality tickets which included a burger or pizza and drink in the restaurant and although this was just what it says it was the service that I thought was fantastic. The people working their were very friendly and happy and obviously loved working for the manager who was around and about and directing the team very well.
We will go back again for a full meal next time we are at the Lowry as they wowed us so much.

Thank you for your kind words regarding The Lowry Restaurant, and the team working here. We run packages on lots of shows, so do look out for those in the future, or simply come back for a pre-theatre meal before your next performance.

“Pre Theatre Dining.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Went to see Brian Ferry on Saturday, and used the restaurant prior to the show. The meal was excellent, as was the service. The standard menu appeared to be a little limited, but turned out to ideal for the theatre dining. The food was presented well, and the portions were good, considering some of the previous reviews, The cost of drinks were lower than what I would expected for a restaurant in Manchester. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and would do it again.

“Pre theatre dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Went with my daughter prior to A Clockwork Orange ( fabulous show) and had the three course meal option.
Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was delicious.
While I agree the portions were on the small side, but this did not detract from the quality and first class service we received.

“A good dining experience. Not the cheapest though!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were at the Lowry going to a "Gig" so we pre-booked a table as it is in the same building as the actual theatre.
The main theme is a choice of 2 or 3 courses at a set price. We went for the 3 course meal at about £22 each. Actual food was very well prepared and presented. Though we were glad that we had also ordered some side dishes to go with our main courses as the portion sizes are not vast. (Maybe we are just gready?)
Not cheap though! I would same comparable with an upmarket place in town. What we did also like was that you could pre- order your drinks for the half time interval of the show that you are seeing.
Staff were all very friendly and efficient. Question is would we go again? Well yes we would, but it would need to be for a fairly important event/special occasion bearing in mind the cost.
