After a second visit, I’d say this place is highly recommended. Friendly service and excellent food. We’ll be returning and looking forward to another fantastic evening.

Maybe a LITTLE on the expensive side, but to be honest I'm a bit cheap at the best of times! Service was friendly and attentive, restaurant was beautifully decorated, but the food was 10/10.

I love the food in this place as really feels like a slice of France in the middle of Manchester. The upstairs dining room isn’t the cosiest and feels more functional than warm but the service was spot on throughout.

Food was very good indeed from a small menu - a good thing because it gives you confidence that all dishes are freshly prepared. The gratin dauphinoise was a little dry and should have been creamier in my view. The chestnut velouté was wonderful. My friend's steak was excellent although I think my stuffed duck breast was perhaps a touch over cooked. The final crêpes soufflées were delicious and, accompanied by the patron's recommended sweet red dessert wine, made a fitting end to a great meal.

We were on a short break in Manchester and asked our hotel for recommendations for a good quality, White Cloth, French Restaurant. 63 degrees turnout out to be a wonderful recommendation - The Service and food were excellent. There was a good choice of wines - mainly French as you would expect. My wife had Duck and I selected Fish so we were somewhat challenged with choosing a complimenting Wine. Our Waiter, who appeared very knowledgeable about Wines, suggested a perfect match. We also asked about the naming of the Restaurant and the owner/experienced Chef visited our table to explain the temperature link to that of cooking a perfect egg. Very interesting. All of this, coupled with the ambience of the restaurant, and the type of background music made made for a wonderful experience. Would definitely return on any future visit to Manchester and recommend to anyone looking for a good quality French restaurant in the local vicinity.

Had a very nice evening at 63 degrees, the food was outstanding the staff were very good at their job they were helpful and knowledgeable about the food and wine, the chefs were very good, my husband and myself will definitely go there again. We don’t often go into the city, so when we do we look for a good restaurant thank you all at 63 degrees.

The restaurant is small but intimate and is well worth a visit, book your table though.

The food was excellent: french cuisine with a modern twist. I was also impressed by the service which was quietly friendly and helpful and the two waiters worked well together. My only disappointment was that despite being in the earlier part of the evening a couple of things were already off the menu.

Walking into an empty restaurant is never a good sign...

On this occasion however I believe we were simply the first diners to arrive for what then became a fully sat room flooded with a pleasant hum of diners enjoying their surroundings.

Me and my partner asked for bread & butter for the table as we were famished which was not the highlight of the meal as we were presented with roughly 4 very thin slices of what could only been described as stale baguette with cold butter.

The Gewürztraminer, (Gewürztraminer ‘Reserve’ Domaine Sipp Mack - Vintage 2015 £40), we ordered was sublime went fabulously with the Home made Foie Gras terrine as well as the highlight of my meal which was the Chestnut velouté with bacon foam. Possibly the best velouté I have had the pleasure of enjoying this year.

We ended with the Rib-eye for 2 which was served perfectly pink and I must say was a delight to feast on. The side of truffled celeriac purée was also very tasty as was the red wine sauce served with the main.

We were so stuffed after it all I was glad that the bread was the only let down of the whole meal.

Our server, who had unfortunately hurt his hand yet was still soldering on through the holidays had bundles of character and it was a joy to be taken care of by someone with such personality in a place which one would expect pretentious and overbearing service. Thankfully, not the case at 63 degrees.

One of the best meals both of us have had in some time... I would recommend again and again.. New favourite restaurant... Remember cash for a tip though as you can not tip on your card... Oh and the cheese board, get the cheese board, you will not regret it!!

Laid back atmosphere, could easily have been in France rather than opposite the lovely old fish market building in the Northern Quarter. Delicious, beautifully cooked food from a reassuringly limited menu all went down a treat although the bill mounted alarmingly as the drinks slipped down. Altogether charming.

Great food and ambience, liked the Tuesday Tasting Menu. The service was a bit idiosyncratic and 'in your face' - as we wanted to talk privately. But that may just be the server who was leaving next week - so overall, I'll be going back.

We went for Sunday lunch and had the specials menu. It's a very well-priced menu but beware there are very few choices per course. Having said that the dishes were a delight. The wine list is extensive but you won't find that much under 25 pounds. Having said that if you were to have an alcohol-free lunch then you would be getting a real bargain. Lovely place, great service and moreish food.

My second visit to 63 Degrees, and again experienced a fantastic dining experience.
The choice on the menu was excellent - with fresh ingredients beautifully cooked.
My wife described the crepe soufle - a desert to "die for" !!
I again opted for the amazing cheese selection.
Great service with nice pace of the service between courses.

Fabulous, Fabulous And even more Fabulous. We were up from London meeting friends. One of the party was dairy and gluten intolerant and chef went out of his way to make food for her to enjoy. There are many a Michelin restaurant in London who cannot make a great lunch like that. Some of us had a la carte some of the set menus, and we all enjoyed it immensely. Will return on our next trip to Manchester. The wine list magnificent and great value.

63 Degrees is a special place for us and it is always a pleasure to visit. Royal treatment from Florence and Eric. The food was great, both seasonal variations to old favourites and new dishes. Whilst we enjoyed a good bottle of wine which ramped up the cost a bit, the lunchtime menu is exceptional value.

Family dinner here was below our expectations and not great value for money.
Basically the food standard was alright but overall some dishes were underwhelming with the only exceptions being the vegetables served with the mains which were good.
