This excellent restaurant is in the building first occupied by a restaurant, the Market Restaurant. This was started by two young ladies, and was first located in Edge Street. In those days the whole area was a grotty, broken down slum. Now it is a busy vibrant area called the Northern Quarter. The Market Restaurant was like a ray of sunshine. It specialised in Belgian beers and in an upstairs room (now the main part of the restaurant) there was a monthly Pudding Club and a few other occasional specialised meals (we once went to a Russian meal). It gradually declined after being taken over several times. The food in 63 Degrees, the comfort and the setting were outstanding. The food itself was quite exceptional. There was a particularly good and reasonably priced wine list. We would be very keen to return soon, but for two aspects. One is that (with the exception of the fillet steak) the portions were somewhere between small and very small indeed. The other is that overall the service (from a delightful and very helpful teacher who apparently works part time as a waiter) was slow - our 3 course meal took from 7pm to 9.30pm, which is too long. It was a Saturday night, and fairly busy, so maybe the service is better at other times.

I do never mark a 10 out of 10 anywhere
There is a serious reason is nothing can ever be perfect
Unless you don't have an objective
It pretty much reach perfection here . Do not forget about it .. from the view to the Team ...pure brilliance !

This was the most disappointing of our 5 visits in the last 3 years. Service in particular was a little lacking compared to previous visits. Still a pleasant value experience but it's been better....

Nice restaurant for semi-fancy dinner with a good atmosphere. I tried the tuesday tasting menu with wine, and I wish they explained bit more about the wine they serve at least. Overall, it was nice food and nice wine.

We have been eating at 63 Degrees since it opened. It is an oasis in an otherwise uninspiring desert of formulaic eateries.
The menu - which is ever changing - is well thought out and provides excellent choice.
The food is excellent, every mouthful a delight to savour the textures and flavours.
If you do one thing in Manchester it should be to eat at 63 Degrees.

Went for Wife's Birthday dinner. Unfortunately we were sat upstairs which was bearlt half full when we arrived for 830 sitting and had only one other couple there by the time our mains came. This meant the atmosphere was somewhat lacking although the background music was present enough.

The service was proficient without being overly impressive. The food was of a very high standard. I had snails, followed by the lamb, while the wife had the foie gras and lobster rissoto , and we shared two sides. Daphenpus potatoes and salad. All was very nice but the three amb chops had at besr six small mouthfulls and the potatoe side was two or three slices of potatoe.

For desert we had chocolate sphere and creme bruce which were also very nice.

All the above with a bottle of red from the more reasonable end of the price range can to 150. While I can't fault the quality the portions were on the small side. Particularly the side of potatoes and lamb.

While I would go back, the cost makes it a special occasion venue and it's lack of atmosphere and value mean it's unlikely to be regular destination

What an excellent choice for a 50th birthday! Being a lunchtime table it was very quiet and relaxed. Each dish looked and tasted like a work of art and the wine complemented the meal perfectly. We even got to try out our French! Is a little pricy but would definitely visit again.

I took my boyfriend here for his 28th birthday (I did put a request prior that this be recognised on arrival but nothing was done!) my boyfriend had wanted to attend for years now so here goes.. on arrival the restaurant is lovely but sadly I was left waiting to long before I even seen a menu and could order drinks then was offered water which we was never told would cost us (unbeknown to myself and my boyfriend we was charged £9 overall for 2 bottles of water!)

Then the food, well what can I say regarding the food.. it was okay very pricey for small portions and I’ve tasted more flavourful food at Canto (a place and vibe I absolutely love in NQ, highly recommended!) the food at 63 degrees wasn’t the best definitely expected better quality in my eyes it was more presentation than substance in all honesty.

Having a father who is a head chef I appreciate authentic fresh food, and this simply lacked it was more for show.

Now the dreaded part in my whole 26 years I have never been out for food spent £100+ and left hungry, never!

The service was minimal we was never asked if we wanted more to drink and we was somewhat ignored and left.

The place looks lovely but cost personally for ourselves was not worth it.

I will praise it on there take of a espresso martini that was gorgeous (sadly was never offered the option to have more than one as eye contacted and acknowledgement of surroundings from staff was lacking)

The food is exquisite the attention to detail is extremely high. Fine dining at its best. However, the portion could be increased slightly. But is still good value budget on £45/50 per head for three courses.
The wine is priced higher than I would normally expect it is obvious from the wine list that the owners are knowledgeable on french wines so the quality is also high.
Would definitely revisit

Fabulous wine list.
My food wasn’t fussy but perfectly executed (oyster starter & lobster main).
Well balanced cheese selection, not overfacing after two courses and still leaving enough room for a sweet.
Service was exemplary - we were supremely well looked after without ever feeling intruded upon.
