    We had Sunday dinner and the food was good, having said that, the vegetable sides looked like they had seen better days and had been kept warm for several hours. The food was more lukewarm than hot, the taste was good. The service was really what let the experience down. Staff really didn’t seem interested and were obviously not experienced or trained for the job. All in all it was ok, we might come back but aren’t rushing to come back

    Food was over cooked, sent it back and it came back over cooked again. This made me late, and I’m my fluster j left my jacket in the back of the chair. I called about it and could only get through to a central booking office who told me there was no way to call the restaurant and all she could do was place a note on lost property. A simple call to them would have solved it. Terrible service. I would not use again.

    Great afternoon visiting Alberts Shed. The food was lovely apart from one fatty steak but the staff immediately come and offered a free desert. The Waiter was lovely and very helpful.

    Good food. Service wasn’t great from staff. They didn’t ask our late arrival guests for drinks and the time it took to receive sugar for our drinks they had gone cold. We asked for no ice and they hadn’t listened. The service needs refining. We were outside but the service wasn’t as good as inside. Overall nice restaurant but the service needs improving

    Had a delicious lunch of sirloin steak with chunky chops cooked by their excellent chef, Stefan, and raspberry ripple ice cream. I really enjoy coming to Albert's often as Stefan knows I love lots of onions with my steak and the way I like it cooked. Plus the ice cream is divine! All the staff are so friendly and helpful. One of my favourite restaurants. I recommend anyone coming to Manchester and would like a great lunch that won't break the bank to come here

    I would have given 5 stars all round but for the fact that the Beef burger main course was served in a wooden box which made using a knife to cut the burger was all but impossible.

    Quality of food always good - excellent environment for meeting up with friends all of whom rate this restaurant highly. I have marked service down slightly because young, trainee waitress was clearing plates before all diners had finished their course but otherwise she was good and very attentive.

    A very poor night drinks wrong, food all wrong nothing cooked how requested. Lots of staff there place quiet but no one serving us still though. Glasses being dropped all over the floor next to us. All in all it really couldn’t get much worst if they actually tried.

    Booked at relatively short notice a table for 2 a Saturday afternoon, the restaurant had a bustling ambience. Staff attentive, top quality food And at such a good price was amazed it wasn’t more expensive. Good vegan choices for myself and my partner had fish courses. Presentation of the food was beautiful. We Both had gorgeous deserts. Just fantastic!! Would definitely go again 👍🏻👍🏻

    Poor greeting. No introduction or memorable welcome from our server. Drink service was hap-hazard. Asked at least 3 times if we had ordered drinks; which we had. Aperol-Spritz was weak/watery. Starter was excellent! We had the Miso Scallops and would definitely recommend. Steaks were blah. The meat was average. They were massively under-seasoned and very wet (not juicy). Literally the ‘juice’ of the steak was flavourless - like water. The peppercorn sauce was thin and not hot enough. The red wine sauce saved the steak to be honest. Very nice, again a little on the thin side. Would normally have dessert, but sadly we were underwhelmed by the meal. Would go back ourselves to give them another try before recommending to anyone else… Need the service quality back to how it was a few years back. Warm, welcoming and a pleasure to visit…

    The menu features some elaborate takes on all the main classics, which makes them all feel surprisingly unique - everything we had was absolutely amazing (with the satay duck and miso scallops being a standout dishes for us being the first time we had duck and scallops cooked those particular ways) and everything was reasonably priced. Waiting staff were all lovely and accommodating of various requests: only things that could potentially be improved are the internal decor (but it’s very much down to personal tastes, of course), and the proximity to Dukes 92, which can get very busy on sunny days which detracts from the atmosphere in the outside part of the restaurant.

    Took my mum for dinner as it’s a place we love but haven’t been since before lockdown. Matt was very attentive without being intrusive and got us everything we needed. The food was delicious as we remembered it to be. We chose from the main menu rather than the 2 course offer that was available and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Will be visiting again soon.
