Absolutely fantastic - so good to have this place in the city centre now. A real treat.
Excellent food, quick service and reasonable prices for the quality of food.
We attended Allotment as my wifes mother was visiting us for the weekend and had heard great things about it. When reviewing the website there were 4 menu options on the day I booked - 7 course, 10 course, signature menu and a Christmas menu. We e-mailed on the day of booking to say we would like the 7 course - it looks amazing and, being honest, none of us fancied the Christmas menu. We arrived at the restaurant on the 01/12/18 and were shown 2 menus (signature and Christmas). I advised that I had e-mailed ahead to state we were ordering the 7 course, however, the waitress advised that they were only doing the signature or Christmas menu. The Allotment website, even on the night, still showed a 7 course menu option. Whilst we were provided with a free bottle of wine in compensation we weren't exactly happy with the situation as none of us really wanted the Christmas option however it was too late on a Saturday night in Manchester to find anything else. The waiting staff were good, however, the restaurant was half full and yet the service times even for drinks was long. The food itself was...okay. Nothing spectacular considering our excitement at attending this venue and the reviews we had read. Ultimately, it turned into an expensive meal for food we did not really enjoy due to following the options available online. We won't be returning to this restaurant as it did not meet the high expectations we had.
Fabulous food & service. Can’t fault it! A wonderful experience that I will be repeating - soon, I hope
Lovely place with vibrant, well seasoned food. I would bring my non vegan friends here if ever I wanted to show them what's possible whilst abiding to a vegan diet!
We’ve been vegan for around a year but had yet to have a proper ‘nice/snazzy’ meal out that wasn’t at a chain restaurant - the food was beautiful and the presentation was exceptional. We had the three course set menu for three with drinks which came to about £100, very reasonable given the quality of food and service - would definitely recommend.
It was very nice to have a pure plant based meal. The only problem was that the roasted egg plant was very oily and had its purple skin removed .The desert was very sugary
This place is going to be great when they get the a la carte menu finalised. We had the three course fixed price meal which and a decent glass of wine each and it was good value. The soup was a bit over seasoned for me, but I liked everything else. Wish I could make aubergine like that...
The live music was not too intrusive and he was a good singer, but I felt a bit sorry for him playing to a small crowd of disinterested diners..
Tasty well presented food.
But slow service, small portions and the quite cold cafe-type ambience was unwelcome.
Delicious and staff were really helpful. Highly recommend.
Friendly service and great food. Very helpful with intolerances - the chef even changed parts of the tasting menu to suit my wife's dietary needs.
Nice ambiance, great service, was just a little taken aback that there was only one fine dining meal choice and that it was three courses. Other alternatives seemes to be more snack style foods like a cheese board. I think I will wait for the menu to become a but more diverse before visiting again. The quality of the food was brilliant though, especially the mushroom mousse. thanks for the experience.
Fist class service and fantastic food
