good service . food was quite good quality but very small portions . I had halloumi starter which was so small it was a joke ! mushroom roll poly tasted nice but no sides and therefore no variety in flavours . my first gin and tonic arrived without any gin but didnt complain as I thought I was mistaken but second gin was obviously gin ! shame because a lovely venue, good staff nice and clean but poor value for me .

The noise level is too high for comfortable conversation. The service was excellent and they turned down the music when asked.

Overall we had a good experience although the roast beef was too difficult to cut and we took it home for the dog to eat!

Thank you for your review Cathy, I'm sorry to read about the beef being too difficult to cut, please may I ask what dish it was you ordered? and was your server or a manager aware of this issue on the day? Karen

Disappointed this time. Been a few times before but it wasn’t as good this time. Had to wait 3/4 of an hour to be seated then we were sat in the window seats uncomfortable high chairs and really cold with air conditioning blowing right at us. Had to ask where our mains were after waiting a long time after starters. Seemed to be short staffed. Hope they improve if we go again.

Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review, we do take all our guest’s comments on board. I'm sorry that you faced a delay on being seated and that you did not like the high seating tables. I'm unsure what happened with the air conditioning so I have passed your feedback onto the management team to look into, I really hope you do return for another visit if you'd like to contact our team we will make a note under your booking to ensure that you are never allocated those tables, Karen

We visited Albert’s on Sunday evening, I love the new decor & the Christmas decorations are beautiful. The service was faultless and friendly, the meal was disappointing, the 3 of us ordered the crispy squid starter which looked lovely when it arrived but was lukewarm, we decided it wasn’t worth the wait to have them make 3 more, 2 of us had the cheese & onion pie with chips next, the pie was very disappointing there was no depth to the pie which meant very little filling, and the cheese was tasteless

Thank you for your lovely feedback regarding the Christmas decorations and the new décor. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your cheese & onion pie I will certainly pass you feedback onto the head chef, Karen

Our booking was for 6-30pm and we arrived at 6-00pm. The table was not ready until 6-45 and only then because we complained!!
When we arrived, the only table available for drinks was swimming in lager which had obviously been spilt some while ago, and had also gone onto the seating. I requested that it should be mopped up which was done in a very perfunctory manner.
When we had finished our meal and were relaxing with our coffees a waiter began noisily clearing our table in a somewhat rude manner, albeit we were 20 minutes within our allotted time.

The food was excellent, however, the service left a lot to be desired. When we arrived we were told we would probably be quicker getting drinks at our table instead of the bar, so we sat down whilst waiting for the other two people to arrive. It took ages to get our drinks anyway, and when the other two arrived, there was nobody at the front desk to say we had already arrived so they were sat at the bar for 10 minutes before they were shown to our table.

One of our parties main dishes was incorrect, but she decided to eat it, as it would have been worse for her to wait then sit eating alone after we had all finished. We got the wrong drink served, which had to be changed and the wrong pudding. We only ordered 1 pudding between 2 people to share, and it wasn't the right one.

We last came in August and there was a similar experience with the service, which is a real shame, as we loved the new decor and the food is great, but they really need to get the staffing/training right, until then, we won't be rushing back.

My only complaint is the 10pc ‘discretionary’ service charge automatically put on the bill. Always difficult to alter.

Albert's Didsbury
Responded on 28 November 2019

Thank you for your review John, the 10% service charge is for groups of 6 and over as there are more staff involved in serving your party who would receive the money from the service charge. It is discretionary as you say but I will certainly pass your feedback onto the team, Karen

Food was delicious as usual although it all came a bit too quickly. The waiter was great. However there was a DJ playing music near the bar area, and all we could hear was loud bass booming so it was hard to chat with our friends whilst we were dining.Not necessary as the food and service are consistently good and background music would be fine.

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry to read that you felt that the bass was too loud, I have passed your feedback onto the manager team to keep an eye on for future weekends as we have a DJ on every Friday and Saturday night in the bar area. I am delighted to read that you are a regular visitor to Albert's and that your food was delicious, Karen

Food was as good as always. Unfortunately the service on this occasion was not quite as attentive as usual. Soup place on edge of table that tipped onto a guest. The bill was incorrect being charged for drink that we did not have that totalled £57. This was resolved satisfactorily when brought to their attention but it should not have been added in the first instance.

Once again, a great night out at Alberts Didsbury. Food was good, service was very good. Our server, didn’t catch his name, was a young Italian (I think) boy. He was very friendly with a great sense of humour and gave us excellent service. Always a great atmosphere at Alberts. Looking forward to next time.
