Our waitress was excellent, we could she tell she had a lot tables to look after, not her fault the restaurant is understaffed, despite this, she was lovely and professional

Was disappointed by some of the food we ordered.

The artichoke pizza had the most pathetic serving of vegetables on it.
The sweet potato gnocchi was chewy and tasted like play doh, the sauce was nice but the actual gnocchi was awful.

We ordered the chateubriande medium rare and it was very very rare.
The halloumi fries were not cooked enough, rock solid, should have been melted.

We had waited along time for our food so didn’t want to risk sitting there for ages by sending anything back

The espresso pannacotta was great


Besides these complaints, everything else was excellent.

Great restaurant and usually happy workers(there was one time which we had a new waiter and he was just not very good... and wasnt e joying the work) Weve visited on several occasions and the food is always delicious. The cocktails are usually sub par, but the irish coffee is definitely something to miss out. Luckily theres a great selection of wine which fills the void. The steaks we had on this visit were one of the best ive had out in Manchester! 100 times better than my two visits to hawksmoor so worth the try.

Simply a great place to eat and drink wine

We have been recommended this place by various friends so decided to give it a go last Friday evening. We ended up running late due to Manchester traffic and as we were going to Manchester Arena for the Arctic Monkeys concert so I was panicking we would end up being late. I brought this info to the attention of our waitress who said she would have a word with the kitchen. We ended up sharing garlic bread, 5 steaks for main and desserts thrown in too all served in quick sharp time so we got to the concert in time. All plates were left empty that says it all and will deffo be coming back when we have more time on our hands and make a proper evening of it. I can't remember the waitresses name but she was Spanish so special mention for her.

Our favourite Manchester restaurant and this visit was as good as all those previous.

We both had rabbit gnocchi to start - perfect portion size, the rabbit was slightly sweet and the dumplings light with a lovely creamy sauce; Albert's do this dish really well. Spot on.

Roast beef for Mr S and what a plateful: lots of pink, sliced beef, mashed potatoes, carrots, cauliflower cheese (really well done with the sauce not over cheesy) and other veg I cannot remember. And top notch, proper beef stock gravy. Fabulous.

Mrs S. thoroughly enjoyed her Malaysian chicken which was properly spiced and "coconutty."

All in all a lovely afternoon - shame about the Moozak.

The best value in Manchester.

Albert’s She’d was, as always, a perfect night.
My husband and me both had superb main courses of lamb and pork respectively. Both meals and accompanying sides were delicious.
The dessert of Chocolate Volcano is probably my favourite from all the many Manchester restaurants we have visited.
Our waiter was friendly and helpful and gave us ample time between courses.
Albert’s always has a relaxed atmosphere and is ideal for couples or larger groups. Nobody rushes you out the door, as has happened in some restaurants, to which we will not be returning.
The selection of wine, cocktails and after dinner liquors is also very good.
I cannot fault Albert’s Shed and will be returning soon.

The restaurant was quiet but we were able to sit outside as the weather was fairly good. We were asked if we wanted to utilise the outside heaters but we declined.
The food was really good and extremely good value for money. Service could not be faulted. It was very friendly and efficient. Overall, it was a very pleasant and comfortable experience and I will definitely be enjoying another meal there soon.

We had seen Albert's Shed from the Metro and liked the position of the restaurant (by the canal side) and decided that the next time we were in Manchester we would give it a try. We were not disappointed, the ambiance was great the food even better. Service was excellent, we were not hassled by the staff and we were pleasantly surprised at the total bill which I did not consider expensive for what we had. A great restaurant which I would highly recommend.

Albert Shed is in a fantastic spot in Castlefield. Great views of the tram & trains passing on the bridge from the outdoor terrace.
Lunch offer of under £13 for 2 courses is a great deal. Staff are very nice too.
I've been twice in the last month. Would definitely keep going back.
