Great food and wine, vibe was immaculate, service was also great
Went for the Sunday roast, had the lamb moroccan marinade and everything was delicious.
Felt welcome as soon as we stepped through the door. Would definitely recommend having cocktails downstairs first! Food was amazing, service was great, couldn’t have asked for nicer staff members. Perfect for all eating diets in the centre of Manchester, you can’t go wrong!
Very suprised at quality and ambiance judging from the outside we were not expecting much,but turned out to be one of the best dining experiences my wife and I have had
Everything was so tasty. Save room for dessert! French toast and gooey cookie- amazing!! Can’t wait to go back.
Amazing service, food was great 10/10!! Will be back again!
Delicious food with generous portions. Friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. We were seated near the toilets on quite a wobbly table, but aside from that, it was a lovely place to have brunch. Would definitely go back!
Lovely staff and great service! Definitely recommend
Great service and food, the staff were as lovely as usual.
Amazing as ever
Staff were so lovely and really accommodating. The environment in the restaurant was so relaxed, warm, and cozy! Perfect for a late lunch
Amazing amazing amazing! Definitely coming back for a cocktail!
Great and friendly service. Sunday roast was really tasty. Will definitely go again
Initial impression was awful we were told we didn’t know where we would be sat even though we had booked and the waiter was very close to us when talking and could even be interpreted as slightly aggressive telling us we would just have to wait. We were disappointed that our table wasn’t ready 15 minutes after it was booked and when we had called on the way numerous times as we were lost there was no answer. We were told to get a drink downstairs whilst waiting for our table which we did but we were debating leaving at this point because of the interaction with the front of house staff but had secured the table with a credit card and did not want to be charged £5pp.
Once seated it was like a completely different restaurant the people who served us at the table were great and the food was incredible we would maybe consider going back again due to the food quality (all dishes were incredible) and the friendly table waiting staff who restored our faith in the restaurant.
Great food, great service. Friendly and and smiling staff. Thank you
Different taste than the usuals. And I liked the menu as well as the food
Quality of the food was very good, and great choice on the menu, good options for vegans. Very friendly helpful staff, nice relaxed atmosphere, plenty of space between tables. Been once, already booked to go again.
Great night, thank you
As amazing as always! Stephen looked after us! I worked here for a short period and yeah just one of my fave spots in Manchester! The food was 10/10. So nice to have healthy options !!
The best Fish and chips I’ve ever tasted in my life. Cocktails were also outstanding. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and that you have the most enjoyable experience.
Great staff, Ambiance, Food no probs for our visit !
Lovely food, great service and really nice ambiance. Always enjoy going to Evelyn's!
Second time here loved it!! Food was amazing, drinks were amazing and the service was fab.
Found this lovely place at the last minute, as we wanted a Sunday lunch! Booked via this app...and everything went smoothly. Restaurant was beautiful and was a fabulous ambience. The staff made us feel welcomed, and we was happy not to see a mask in place..so felt welcomed. The food didn’t take too long, we both had the chicken Sunday lunch...and it was to die for. Highly recommended.
Absolutely love everything about Evelyn’s - it’s my go to place in the Northern Quarter.
The food is top class and offers something for everyone - highly recommend their Sunday roast as well.
The staff are so friendly and accommodating and I always enjoy the funky music they have playing in the background. Gives the place an even cooler vibe!
First time at Evelyn's on Saturday 5th Sept. Recommended by a friend. Lived up to its high billing. Good food, lovely service and nice ambience.
Enjoyed the new menu, me and my partner had a lovely evening and food was faultless! Our favourite was the french toast - OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!! Thank you!! ☺️
We had an amazing time everything was perfect.
Also a big thank you to Priya she was brilliant.
Staff just did not look happy, food wasn’t worth the money and never received the water I asked for. It wasn’t even busy.
The food was great and the service was fine, but I didn’t feel entirely safe. Very little effort was made to distance customers and no staff were wearing masks.
From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely welcoming and immediately made us aware that certain items were not available and also kindly made us aware all food was halal. We ordered the charcoal and lavender coffee and I must say it’s the best coffee I’ve had to date so things were looking great.. I ordered pancakes for breakfast and they were extremely light and puffy and again the best pancakes I’ve had to date... The food was lovely, staff were extremely polite, welcoming and helpful and the ambience was lovely.. It was quiet and relaxed and it actually had a feeling of being sat in a cafe in New York. I will definitely be returning.. Thank you
The food was nice, and the ambience was delightful, but staff need more training in handling dietary requirements.
Provides the best level of consistently high food and service in Manchester. Generally never lets me down.
Always a pleasant experience at Evelyn's. The manager is always friendly and helpful and the staff are welcoming.
Beautiful place and the service was excellent. We were really taken care of, I would definitely re-visit
Perfect service, food was presented and tasted great..
Busy Sunday lunchtime, arrived 15mins early did ask the guy who greeted us if we could wait elsewhere whilst waiting for our table to clear, he was dismissive and quite rude frankly saying there was no possibility of us waiting elsewhere we'd need to come back bang on our table time.
On returning for our table this time even running a few mins late ourselves, the table isn't ready still so we were shown downstairs to a waiting bar area (not sure why the first guy couldn't have seated us down here from the outset) waited another 15mins after our table time to be seated. From here on out the food was nice and service to a good standard with a very attentive waitress although we did wait in excess of 40mins for food to arrive, the chicken was cooked beautifully for the Sunday roast however.
Overall the dining experience didn't get off to the best start or welcoming from our first interaction which is a shame. I would return again as the food was nice but maybe not at such a busy time when clearly it takes more effort to just be helpful or attentive to customers from the off.
Though we had a lovely time and wern't rushed at all. We did feel the service was a little abrupt, nobody was wearing masks or properly social distancing on service which suprised me and would be good to know prior. The food was not as well presented as times i had been there before though it was tasty and it wasnt the best experience ive had there as usually its really good.
Gorgeous food, great service and felt very well protected with COVID-19 regulations without impacting on the general atmosphere.
Unfortunately our time at Evelyn’s was extremely horrible. We had a booking for three at 12.45 for my friends birthday, and ordered maybe half an hour later. At around 2.30, we were still sat with no food. People had come in, ordered, ate, and left before us. Even those that ordered the same meals!
Eventually, when our meals came, one was burnt, another was raw, and the final salad was bland, confusing and not worth the price tag.
On top of that, the servers were quite rude- one who avoided us even though I was obviously attempting to get their attention, and another who told us to “order a salad next time”. None had masks on, and we found they got extremely close when we had our order taken at the start.
It was overall very frustrating, and extremely embarrassing for me as I intended to start my friends birthday off pleasantly. We ended up walking out, humiliated, disappointed and hungry.
Honestly, if I could give 0 stars I probably would. The lemonade we actually got served somehow justifies the one star, and I appreciate the floor manager phoning us two days later- him obviously as horrified as we were.
I was recommended Evelyn’s, and so am so disappointed this was our experience. This is not a restaurant I think I would ever feel comfortable revisiting to purchase from, or recommend to anyone. I really hope the staff considers our experience, and learns from it, so no one has to feel as humiliated as we were.
