Good window table. Service was efficient. Food nothing special. Fruit scones turned out to be plain . Disappointed that earl grey tea was not available. Not happy that a bottle of water was £5. Not a lot of atmosphere . Tables were empty. Could do better.

I love this restaurant! The views of Manchester are amazing. The staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. The Champagne afternoon tea was delicious. Would definitely recommend it.

I have been to this restaurant previously for afternoon tea. On this occasion I felt the experience was a little below standard. I wouldn't book this venue again for this type of service.

Lovely building. Staff very pleasant. A little slow and unfortunately had to ask for our tea albeit we were there for afternoon tea. Out of the kindness of the manager we were allowed on the roof terrace which was a little disappointing.

Visited Hotel Gotham for afternoon tea. What a fabulous experience from moment of arrival. We were met by Sean at reception who took us up to 6th floor. Sean was so professional and friendly and made you feel at ease immediately. All the staff at the Hotel were first class - this hotel has it just right. Afternoon tea was delicious- as was the champagne. I can’t wait to return - a wonderful experience - very special.
Would highly recommend.

I loved the gentleman who greeted us as we entered the hotel. He looked so authentic and made us feel really welcome. Walking into Honey literally takes your breath away - the decor is outstanding and the views across Manchester are amazing. We had afternoon tea with champagne and it was excellent. The food was plentiful, the choice of teas mind boggling and the champagne was perfect. We had the best service from Antonio and the team around we’re on hand to help when he was serving elsewhere. It was just fabulous.

Had a lovely Champagne afternoon tea for my friends 60th birthday.
Food was well presented and delicious, especially the GF option.
Thought the afternoon tea was good value.
We ordered an extra bottle of Champagne at the cost of £75 and was surprised that we did not receive a clean glass with the new bottle. Wondered if this was the same we had in the previous glass.
As we were there for my friends birthday we did not mention this at the time.
We also were not going to pay the service charge which a lot of restaurants seem to pop in at the end of the bill.
Had my friend not been there we would have queried these points with the manager at the time.
Maybe you could address this with the staff and we may return to Honey.
Thank you

We were instantly greeted by the woman that seated us, and the chef said hello as well. Unfortunately I don't remember her name (24/7/19 7.30pm) but she was extremely attentive, topping up our water and wine all night for us. She was really friendly and talked us through the menu as well as giving recommendations and having a laugh with us.

The food was phenomenal. I had the set menu and the Asparagus starter was delicious, and the cauliflower risotto was amazing-the marmite butter its made with is genius. My boyfriend had the main menu scallop starter and duo of lamb main and repeatedly said how great all of the food was.

The ambience was great as the decoration was interesting and light, and the location is great so you get a 6th floor view of the city from your table. There was a martini bartender who clearly loves what he does and passionately talked people through what a martini is and how to choose what you like so that was fun to observe.

This was a birthday treat meal for me but would also be great for an evening with the girls or just a nice evening alone for a good coffee and desert with the paper.
Highly recommend everything about Honey!

This was the third time we have had afternoon tea at the Gotham, and as always we were felt to be made special from the moment we arrived. We would highly recommend the afternoon tea to anyone wanting something a little bit different, we are already planning our next visit.

Lovely afternoon tea at The Gotham, excellent attentive service. Maybe a bit more filling in the finger sandwiches would have been better.

Very disappointing.
Staff were v nice but service v slow and not really up to scratch - always having to ask for milk refills rather than staff noticing need for refill.
Sandwiches and cakes rather disappointing- pastry was vvv hard

Big case of could do better- room for improvement
Sorry- would have liked to have been more positive

It was very nice and a nice glass of champagne which could have been topped up slightly for a full glass. The scones could have been lighter but a nice treat none the less for a Saturday afternoon out.

We had an amazing time celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. The staff were aware of our celebration and this was beautifully cared for with a surprise "sweet" and glass for my darling wife. The food is exceptional and the drinks great (maybe a bit pricey). However the overall experience was perfect. Thank you.

Afternoon tea was lovely. Prices for drinks are relatively expensive but excellent quality. Service was on the slow side. Very nice location and setting but not much atmosphere - we went at 4pm so maybe that was a timing thing.

I loved the experience. It is a beautiful hotel and the staff are great. They are so friendly, helpful and accomodating. Unfortuantly the food did not live up to my expectations. The scones were beautiful but all the other cakes were really dry and not enjoyable. The sandwiches had not much taste either. I was really disappointed especially as it was a birthday treat for one my friend and myself and I was looking forward to this day for a long time.

Overall the afternoon tea and experience was lovely, however a few small areas that let it down.

We were asked what we wanted to drink after the afternoon tea had arrived, may be a personal thing, but I feel this should be asked and organised first.

Food wise, the feta wrap was very lacklustre in comparison to the rest of the options. The smoked salmon bagel was amazing, I could have eaten a plate of them!

The afternoon tea was a little disappointing for the price. The sandwiches in particular as the bread was stale and the fillings were quite bland. It may be different if you are dining in the evening and order from the main menu.

This is the second time we've been here for afternoon tea. After going to a few this is still my favourite. Great service, good food and a lovely ambiance. We even made it into the members only terrace bar upstairs where the service moves up a notch. Excellent and I'll be back.

This was a birthday treat and sadly we were so disappointed with the seating, wobbly table, no knifes or forks, waiting for tea and coffee and then you see what £75.00 looks like on three tiers and it’s not good!
There is a lot of waiters and waitresses walking past your table very fast for some reason.
