    Excellent service, good food, amazing view and really cool atmosphere. What I like most is how friendly people are. The only thing I would change is the level of music - the sound level is too high no one can hear each other. We had cigars on the terrace too. Excellent service

    Food was good in most cases. However a big drawback to the setting was there was no adequate separation between the bar and the dining section. The music was TOO LOUD to make the dining conversation enjoyable at all.

    Turned away due to daughter having crocs on, was told dress code states no crocs, sliders or joggers on their website- had to walk back in to Manchester centre and bought £110 pair of trainers then was allowed in… wasn’t happy, especially when we checked the policy on the website when we got home, where there is NO mention whatsoever about crocs!! Very overpriced for what you get, have had far better at other venues for lower price, not sure I would rush back!

    Wouldnt allow me to order 2 starters despite one of them being more expensive than two of the main courses. Dessert was meant to be a white chocolate roulade but didnt appear to have white chocolate in it. Cheese was meant to come with a pickled walnut but it didnt. We were told they wanted the table back "soon" despite only being there for an hour. Not great service and very poor value.

    Beautiful place and great views. I think Weekday service and food might be much better due to how busy it is on weekends, one of our mains came out stone cold and had to be sent back. There didn’t seem to be much of an apology or anything to say sorry until we said after the bill came. We asked for olives and they didn’t come and also part of the main was missing.

    The place is lovely and we’ve been a few times for drinks but never food. Our starters were lovely however our steak was chewy and full of sinew . We couldn’t even cut through it which wasn’t helped by the fact that the steak knife was hopeless. The staff didn’t come over and ask if our meals were ok and when our plates where removed with half of the steak left we were never asked how our meals were. As we left much of the steak I would suggest that it was obvious we weren’t overly happy. For a restaurant which is quite expensive We would have expected a better steak and service.

    Great views of Manchester totally ruined by really bland, basic food. The price you pay is for the view only, you can get much better, taster food at any kebab shop nearby. My salmon was probably from Iceland (the frozen food retailer, not the country) - no taste or texture to speak of. So yeah, go and enjoy a drink and the view on the terrace, but don't waste your money on the food.

    I have ordered Mackerel for starter, it was very salty, but the chef probably forgot to put seasoning on the Salmon , it was tasteless, we didn’t ordered bread, the waiter put down a basket with 4 small slices of bread and it cost us £4.5 . Apart from that, atmosphere was good.

    We decided to go for Mother’s Day as my dads thermally ill therefore nice to get out as a family. We arrived at 4pm on the Sunday and we sat down and ordered drinks, to then be told no Sunday dinners left? On a Sunday at 4. Ridiculous we all came for a Sunday roast. The staff was rude. This wrecked our Mother’s Day completely. As we didn’t like anything else on the menu we decided just to have drinks, then we rudely got told to leave the table as we were not eating. Would not recommend at all. Over priced and rude management.

    We had an unexpectedly poor experience at 20 Stories today. Arrived a few minutes before our booking and was told the table would be late and to get a drink at the bar. Waited ages for service but drinks were fine. Table was then ready (late). We were hoping for Sunday lunch but by 15:15, that was sold out. Took a long time for anyone to take our order. I ordered celeriac wellington for main at which point the waiter said he felt obliged to point out that that was vegetarian!!! I explained that that was precisely why I had ordered it. The food took ages to arrive. My husband and daughter both ordered prawns. They were fine if a bit lacking in chilli flavour. My scallops were nice, if ever so slightly overdone. On setting the plates down, nothing was said. The plates were just plonked on the table and the server left. No one asked if our food was okay. No one checked on us during the starter. Plates took a while to be cleared away when we had finished. Mains arrived, again after a delay. Same as before, no words uttered, no one hoped we enjoyed our food, no one came back to check we were okay. My daughter had fillet steak cooked medium. The steak was medium rare but still nice. Parmesan and truffle fries lacked seasoning. My celeriac wellington was okay, but nothing special. Lacked seasoning. My husband’s cod was said to be nice. Sometimes in restaurants the servers pester you by topping up the wine constantly (presumably so you drink faster and order another bottle). Quite the reverse here. The bottle was stored away from the table and no one topped up the glasses. We were thirsty and had to flag down a waiter and ask for the bottle to be brought back to our table and left there. I felt the service was slow, unfriendly and inattentive. The bill came to about £272 for 2 courses each with an extra side. I declined to pay the service charge because it simply was not worth it. I would have been happy to pay had staff been friendly and attentive. What a let down.

    I had such high expectations for dining at 20 stories and found it to be average. The food was average and the service was average. I had to flag down my server to order a glass of wine. The ambience is incredible, it is a lovely location - even on a rainy, grey mothers day, the views are splendid. I can see popping in for drinks due to the ambience and views, but for dining, I would eat in other places for better tasting and better value fare.

    Service could have been much better, Iv been and eaten here many times but the service this time was quite poor, setting/venue ambience atmosphere was amazing as always. Food was first class and would highly recommend..

    The best dining experience I’ve had in Manchester! Our Hungarian waiter was an exceptionally friendly and helpful gentleman, which was then compounded by having another fantastic waiter in Stanislav. Our view as well as food was impeccable and the cocktails were a lovely, unique experience. I’ll certainly be back!
