Everything was perfect from beginning to end.
Delightful drinks then a warm bread to wet the appetite!
Food was amazing. Extremely tasty, quick and nice and hot.
Ambience was fabulous. Very busy but a good noise level and didn’t feel too crowded despite the popularity early on a Saturday evening!
Our waiter, Mirco, was fabulous. Very friendly and he could not do more to help us. He had an excellent knowledge of the food and drinks menu and we were extremely impressed by his professionalism and friendless.
Can’t wait to come back! Thank you for a gorgeous memory!
Fabulous service. Good food. Great views. Overpriced menu. Poor starter selection (just trying too hard to be different)
Joint 50ths with some pals. Great ambience. Great food great drinks. Loved it
A great night out with my wife. This restaurant was gorgeous; the staff was friendly; and the food was beyond delicious! The bar staff made some excellent cocktails while the kitchen staff prepared amazing appetisers and one of the best filets I’ve ever had. We will be back!
We shared the Lamb main course with Dauphnoise potatoes and this was very tasty and the vegetables were very nice too - carrots and spinach. The cocktails beforehand were really nice and a great selection. The place is a great place split into two - indoor and open rooftop terrace. both with great views of the city. Its a very friendly and social place and the staff are very attentive and friendly and advise you on drinks and the food. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return :-)
Perfect for a night with stunning views . Service was impeccable and the staff was nice and friendly . The food is as good as any fine dinner restaurant .
Nice meal in a vibrant atmosphere. Very popular place. Would go again
Fantastic restaurant. Wonderful views of Manchester and exceptional food.
Excellent location and the views of Greater Manchester exhillerating. However being a party of 12 the table was placed under an air conditioning vent that pumped out cold air. Despite requesting to turn it off (which could not be done) the manager turned the heat up a little but the food got too cold to eat after being served within minutes.
A bad experience to boot as celebrating my wife’s 70th and the candles on the cake could not be lighted. Booo
Had a great meal at 20 Stories - lovely restaursnt with a view of Manchester. You feel like you are somewhere special. The food was top notch and the service very friendly. Will come again.
Amazing. 5 stars all round. It was a great meal
Not my favourite place in town. I feel I got much better value for money and more exclusive atmosphere at Manchester house. The food was nice and fair the prices but the wine was over priced!! Very noisy and perhaps a selfie ban would be helpful, I was constantly dodging other people’s photographs. The food was lovely, the service was outstanding, and the views breath taking but really would have been nicer if the restaurant and bar were separated a little more. The drunken smashing of glasses is not the backdrop I expect when paying £300 for a meal
A perfect venue for our small friendship group to meet for lunch. The dramatic setting created a fabulous backdrop for the stylish menu. Friendly and courteous staff including a very helpful sommelier completed this quality experience and made it memorable.
The food was beautiful and the table we sat at was facing the terrace and a nice big spacious comfortable booth. The waiters were fabulous and our drinks never run low. Will definitely be back!
Perfect setting great service friendly staff, slight criticism about the smoking being allowed on the terrace not good if you eating near to the "smokers", great cocktails try the slow love
Aiden has such good restaurants before not sure if this is a roof bar or a below average restaurant. Noisy, hot, poor service and average food. Not what we were expecting.
lovely place but service was appalling. we waited over an hour for our fish pie and had to repeatedly ask where it was.
Great food and great service a bit pricey but worth it, would def go again
Excellent food , good service with spectacular views.
food was ok not much choice and should decorate dish more to put up with the viwe n the price
Had the most amazing date night on Saturday at 20 Stories. It was sensational from start to finish and we was made to feel very welcome and comfortable on arrival. Places like these make quality time with someone special even more amazing. Would 100% go back and definitely recommend.
This was my 2nd visit and it was as good as the first . Food very good . We had the lamb hot pot beautiful. The staff very attentive and pleasent. Can't say enough about it and looking forward to my next visit . Xx
Great venue, good food, fairly pricey.
As overcharged on my bill (Bottle of Wine added), I did not notice and paid, however when I phoned the manager was brilliant and dealt with immediately.
New favourite in Manchester.
Really lovely restaurant , very nice food.
Wine was a bit pricey though.
Arrived looking forward to a nice evening. Bar busy but no issue with service and quality of drinks. All great until food. Young mans service was great however the manager was unable to help when my partners burger came out rare after ordering medium well. Unfortunately the blood was too much for her to ignore. This happens but you don’t expect to be told we would have to wait a 20 minutes for another and no real option to compensate for this such a take mine back also and get a drink whilst both waiting. I guess it was a busy night but the gesture of deducting the meal off the bill didn’t seem great with an evening night out effected. Just seemed a real shame as we had been excited for this venue. We left to have drinks at Manchester house as didn’t feel like staying there into the night. Hopefully very few experiences like this as I am sure it is usually great
Service was amazing, foods and atmosphere was brill
Beautiful environment with great service!
Very welcoming and relaxed, service was amazing and although we turned up late a table was available upon request. Price for food was reasonable and not expensive. The atmosphere was energetic and view was amazing.
Fantastic experience, gorgeous food and wonderful service, highly recommended
Amazing food. Wonderful service. Beautiful views. A very special date.
Great location with stunning views across the city. Wine was more than we would normally pay, but quality worth it. Excellent food (apart from grit in spinach!) and will definitely be back.
I found the food disappointing and lacking flavour. Noisy. Ok overall. Expensive.
Excellent from start to finish
One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The service was outstanding. Natalie (waitress) who took care of us and the other customers, she was working tiredlessly and should be rewarded with a raise. The food was excellent and the desserts were heavenly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. The view from the building is to die for. Beautiful!
We went for a anniversary meal at 20 stories and what can i say it was on thw whole a very good experience the waiter who served us was polite, professional and courteous. The food was amazing we went for the steak and sides and they were cooked to perfection. This isn't the cheapest place to wine & dine but experience was very good. only complaint i would have is that they add a service charge automatically to a party of 2 (12.5%) which is reasonable but if you want to tip differently (10 - 15%) it woudl feel awkward to ask them to move this so that you can add your open preferred amount. i would eat here again and would reconmend 20 stories for drinks and/or food.
Very comfortable seating with good views from many tables. First went here when the grill and restaurant had separate menus. These have now been merged which improves the offering in both areas. Cooking is very competent and dishes are composed of flavours and textures which lift the menu well above the chain level although you can have a burger for mains: I tried it first visit and found it too greasy for my taste. Four of us dined after the consolidation of the menu and none were disappointed. The dishes and service were all more polished since our first visit. Already a great addition to the neighbourhood and still improving. It's the place to take friends who are visiting the city and will appreciate the views. Go early to enjoy a drink from the bar and a wander round the terrace.
This is a special place. The restaurant design, food, service are all excellent. The veggie option was on the small side, but the chips filled me up...
The outside bar is almost a victim of its own success and rather busy and blingy, though the drinkers were in great spirits and happily accommodated those who wanted to wander about and explore the view.
Service charge was disgusting. I was very shocked!!
Service was exceptional, staff paid attention and gave good suggestions.
We enjoyed our evening.
The only thing is the menu, it can do with more choices for all courses, apart from the dessert menu which sounded gorgeous even though we were too full.
