Although we had a bad start to our son's birthday meal. Because although I had booked for 5. Including me in a wheelchair. We were shown to a table for 4. I said can we have a bigger table as there is 5 of us. My son will be here in a minute. We was then shown to an even smaller table for 4. Again We would have been cramped. With me in the wheelchair as an after thought. With my back and hair squeezed in between our table and a table for 2.
Again I said can we have a table for 6 as there is 5 of us, and pointed to a table we had passed.
Reluctantly we was eventually shown to that table.
After that bad start, our server was fabulous. The food was delicious and our son had a wonderful birthday meal.
I feel that the fact that they didn't have any red wine or chicken burgers left at 8pm was a bit disappointing for a burger place!
Pleasent courteous staff,quick service,hot food,well worth a visit
Amazing food as always!
Great, quick service and really easy to order from the QR code.
Love this place been so many times one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester.
Excellent food, maybe a little pricey but drinks and sides reasonably priced. Don’t like paying for a service charge when ordering meal as I like to see how good the service is before deciding how much I want to leave.
Restaurant was open and spacious but we were pushed in to a corner - would have been nice to have seen a bit more than the photo booth and a broken pane of glass. But only in restaurant for 45 mins as service was so quick.
Really enjoyed the food & ambience however I did put on the booking it was my daughters birthday meal & it wasn’t acknowledged on the day. I feel the having to order on the app ourselves takes away the interaction & personal feel that perhaps people prefer- we certainly do
Yeh good, staff nice. Food excellent as usual. Shame about the big screens either side of us blocking the view of everything. Plus less able to attract waiter attention when needing things.
But still highly recommended and will go again no doubt
We were recommended Almost Famous, knowing our 14 year old grandson would love the burgers! He thoroughly enjoyed it
Amazing service and even more amazing food! I just wish there was more choice on the menu.
Amazing food as always! Good value
Great location ambience service and food. Super tasty burgers 👍
Had a lovely night, all staff were lovely. Food & drinks were great x
Great food and drinks!
We were a bit disappointed because our burgers were too salty. Salt killed all the flavours. We drank about 2 litres of water later afterwards. It’s a shame because we were in af twice before and had quite high hopes.
Food was great but not as good as when I first visited a couple of years ago. service was good too.
Food made me ill
First time visiting Allmost Famous and was a little disappointed. There wasn't a lot to choose from on the menu, although what I chose was really good. The chips are amazing.
Some of the staff seemed quite rude and had a couldn't be bothered attitude about them.
Food was stale and not as pictured on Instagram. The steak on the burger was completely raw and cold. Overall, overpriced and disgusting food. Will not be revisiting. Staff were unhelpful upon complaining and could not help with a refund! I left the restaurant with almost all of my food on my table, £40 down and hungry. Do not visit this restaurant. Save your money and go elsewhere.
food was absolutely delicious, could not recommend enough. Product was of very high quality and portion sizes were fantastic. The service was a little slow but, the speed of the food made up for this. We had a real issue with ordering due to the location. The online order system relied on a good signal, something that we didn’t have. the place was clean and tidy. Would recommend
Food good as normal only thing is the chairs are so uncomfortable
The Burgers are nothing like as good a they use to be!
the patty’s were poor quality will not be going again.
Possibly the worst burger I have had for many years - what was supposed to be steak strips had the consistency of giant slugs - undercooked and fatty! The accompanying posh fries tasted chemically. The drinks were expensive (and watered down?)
Best burgers EVER
Chips where nice. Burger wasnt, meat was dry and bacon tasted like it had been reheated 20 times. Not greatfood
Very overpriced for what is a pretty basic burger restaurant. My burger was sloppy and the fries were so salty they were almost inedible
The staff were friendly enough although not much for them to do as all ordering is via the website because of Covid
Food was poor. Served half a basket of fries with the baconaise sauce covering 3 of the chips. Staff were friendly but the food was awful
Perfect dining experience with delicious food
I wouldn’t bother to be honest. Food was cold took 45 minutes to come to the table, I could see it sat under the lamps for at least 20 minutes of those, surroundings were scruffy and looked grubby, maybe it was an off day.
Yet another amazing meal, THE best burgers you’ll ever have. Bacon bacon fries still as good as ever too
Banging food, banging cocktails, banging service!!
When I got there, my friends and I were greeted with kindness and respect and was shown the table.
Ordering food was easy but it took a while longer for the food to come out for me, food arrived for them before mine but I was offered an apology.
The burgers and fries arrived as expected, didn’t disappoint.
I just wish someone come over and check on us if everything was ok. I miss that pre-covid hospitality.
Overall I had a good time with my friends.
Best burgers ever, must go and try everything immediately
I normally enjoy this place but my opinion of it has gone downhill in all honesty. In terms of constructive feedback:
The toilet facilities are in dire need of repair. I like the decor and I understand the style but it’s just lazy when the toilets are in utter disrepair.
The food wasn’t as nice as it normally is, a lot more salt came through in the taste. The pho-king sauce is nothing like teriyaki and actually very bitter - what’s going on there? The blood, blue and butter special burger was ok but the menu doesn’t mention that it had onions and the chorizo does nothing. Maybe the overall disappointment was due to the reduced menu, this was ok during peak Covid, but isn’t it time to bring back some more selection?
I don’t mind the table ordering system, that seemed to work well but it would be good if the burgers could be customised when ordering?
Really nice burger and nice fries, slightly limited menu however if you want a burger this is the place.
Visiting our son in Manchester and went due to it being National burger day and burgers were 50% off all day. The man who showed us to our table was polite and explained fully how to order and how the offer worked etc Staff were efficient and everything was clean. We have been to AF before and would go again
My favourite restaurant, we needed to be table service as we were paying via voucher. Service was a little slow but nonetheless great when attended too.
Chicken wings were awful, burger not great either
Amazing Burgers, friendly staff willing to help and a nice chilled out vibe
Sadly we sat waiting for 40 minutes after ordering the food on the app as advised by the waiter. We then had to ask where our good was to be told the order had not gone through. My boyfriend then had to go to move the car due to being longer at the restaurant then expected. They brought the food out whilst he had gone for 5 mins. Then had to ask to keep it warm. Luckily the food was warm and we enjoyed it. Poor service and no compensation. The app automatically takes a service charge and on this occasion no tip was justified
