We had asked friends on facebook to recommend somewhere to meet with friends we hadn't seen for a long time. This fitted the bill perfectly. we spent 3 hours with a lovely view, courteous and friendly service and yummy food. Thanks to all.

Allowed an hour for a quick early dinner before a concert at the nearby Bridgewater Hall. Traffic was horrendous so that became only 30 mins! But we were hungry so went anyway. We explained the situation and the staff were FANTASTIC - we were seated, order taken and drinks on the table in maybe 3 mins! They put the order into the kitchen as urgent and 5 mins later we had one Moules Frites and one Chicken Ceasar Salad. Moules Frites were top notch in tasty white wine cream sauce (according to better half) and the Chicken Ceasar had great fresh ingredients but, and it is the only thing that wasn't great, instead of a Ceasar-style dressing there were five or six big tablespoon dollops of aioli garlic mayo. It was good aioli but way too much of it and it rather drowned the salad, clotting all the lettuce together. I left the half of the aioli I could scrape off but still left feeling like I'd eaten a very rich cloying dish, not the hoped for salad. Location great, ambience lovely, staff fantastic, chefs super quick but need to go a bit easier on the mayo...

The service here is excellent. I had a problem with a dish I ordered but it was expertly dealt with by the manager and waiter who supplied an alternative dish without any fuss or quibble. I can't say enough about their professionalism and friendly efficient attitude. Top marks. Thank you.

Service was shocking - our food arrived before our drinks, I had finished my main course by the time the drinks arrived, even after chasing several times. Also, had to ask to see the dessert menu three times, to which a waiter replied “I don’t understand”. Although the food was really good, I won’t be returning due to the disappointing service, it was not an enjoyable afternoon.

Unfortunately our experience this time not as good as previous visits. My daughters steak was cold, as was my husbands accompaniments to his meal. We did mention this to the manager who said she would see us at the end of the meal as we did not have time for replacements. When we mentioned this to the waitress who brought our bill the manager came over after we had paid to say she would put a note on screen to compensate us in some way when we return. The chances of us going back again now is remote as there are plenty of good restaurants in Manchester.

Visited this venue and a table for four. All thoroughly enjoyed the starters, main courses and the choice of deserts or coffees. All complimented with drinks, a bottle of vino and some sparkling water, and the final bill was very reasonable for the quality of the dining experience and service. Attentive and friendly staff, will go again and recommend, the Duck, King Prawns starters, Lamb and Malayan Chicken mains in particular. Fantastic.

We have been coming to Alberts shed a few years now, and it has always been 5 star. However on this occasion the noise was on the border of rowdy and not the usual 5 star clientele.
The food was not the normal brilliance on this occasion, i had a rabbit which was okay but rather bland, my wife had a Tomahawk Pork Chop and was not cooked all the way through... on complaining we was told it us the colour of the meat, sorry but pork should always been cooked through.
Service was okay but not to the level of “is your service tonight outstanding” which is very unusual.
Overall was not the best night or food and i was rather disappointed with the whole evening, wished i had now booked Evuna.

Felt rushed eating my starter, others on my table had finished and they started clearing the plates away.
Our friends paid the bill, didn't check it as the gentleman became unwell and needed to go home.
Upon checking found he had been over charged for 6 drinks and a table cover charge for 8 people, when only 4 were at the table.

Service was good initially but deteriorated as the meal went on. We asked for few mins before dessert menu but we’re given them straight away. Then no-one came to take our order we had to ask. We also had to ask for the bill as no one came over to us. The bill was also incorrect

On a very hot day, everything in the restaurant was cool and calm. It was busy but the staff took the time to explain the menu and recommendations. Exceptional food, the lobster and king prawn risotto was exquisite.
It’s been a while since we dined at Albert’s Shed but it will not be so long before we go again.
