A few items were not available on the menu, the food was disappointing and it was quite cold in the building
Food was cold when it arrived and it took almost 2 hours for us to get the food. Drinks took over an hour also
Food was good, we were seated quickly and served quickly.
Very good atmosphere and excellent food. The potatoes value are excellent and the burgers very tasty!
Seated 20 minutes after our reservation.
Once seated no one came to our table to take our order. After 15 minutes we approached the host stand to order. It then took 45 minutes and our drinks had not come. Again approached the host stand and asked for our drinks.
Overall we were there for over 2 hours and no one approached our table to serve us. Had to ask for our drinks and food multiple times.
Food was good, service was non-existent.
Had a lovely birthday meal here, really enjoyed it and will definitely be returning!
Automatic service fee for lazy bar stewards
Brilliant food .
We did have 40 mins wait for food . No waitress service be prepared to order your own food through their app.
Absolutely perfect as per usual. The manager was great and attentive and gave bacon to our dog !
The girl serving needs some support she looked like she was having a bad day!!
Amazing food the butter blood and blue burger was the best burger I've ever tasted! We all wanted to keep eating it was so good even though we were full!
First time trying Almost Famous and thought it was the best burger I’ve ever had!
Visited almost famous lots of times as the food is always delicious but was disappointed yesterday. Chips were dry and overly salty, burger just wasn’t up to usual high standard. Restaurant was also really cold. Quite disappointing as it’s normally a treat to come when in Manchester and the burgers and fries are unbeaten
Service and staff are usually amazing, but on Saturday things were not great. Had a table booked for 18.00 and half of our party didn’t get their food till 7.10. Most of the staff were really helpful, we did check the food order was ok (before waiting an hour) and was informed in was in hand. We literally had to done and dash as we have tickets for a show at 7.30
Amazing service, food was outstanding and an overall good time !! Will be visiting again for sure !!
Thanks Samantha! We'll be glad to see you again soon!
After a very long tiring day shopping I was really looking forward to sitting down and enjoying a nice meal. We were shown to our table which was right in the back away from the main restaurant. I was surprised as I had booked this the day before and it was only 6pm and not many people in the restaurant at this time. Then the waitress explained that we had to order by scanning the QR code on the table. I was tired and this was the last thing I wanted to do. I just wanted to be given a menu and order in a normal way, my phone only had a bit of power left and could not connect. As a result I just gave up and left. The staff didn’t even acknowledge that we were leaving. Ended up eating somewhere else with proper service and better atmosphere.
Great food , great service , great staff , exceptionally loud table behind us with,
Burgers were bland, chips were cold. Could have got what a ordered half the price in Wetherspoons.
Food was unreal! Staff were so lovley will defo be back
Cold vegan burger. Poor service. Very limited menu
Not a fan of using the app to order, would rather have a menu to look at and table service. I actually wasn’t that impressed with my burger, it was ok but not something i have to go back for. No dessert menu is also a killer.
As always. No surprises. Food was peng. Service was great.
First visit to almost famous and the experience was absolutely superb
Great for Burger lovers. Small menu but great quality
Amazing food - friendly staff - horrendous ordering system! The app was unclear; the internet signal was poor so had to join the Audi but no Wi-Fi code clearly near the tables, had to catch one of the staff. There was no Apple Pay or android pay options, there was no cash payment option. There was no split bill option. It was an awful experience from that perspective.
Great food and friendly staff. Very welcoming and helpful
Very nice, took ages to order as it is now all electronic and if you had any questions regarding the menu it was difficult to get a member of staff as they all seemed very busy. But all in all excellent place.
Food was fine and as expected. Not great service and cold, noisy seating area.
Friendly staff and quick service, with fabulous food! A great experience all round!!!
Food took a while to come and was cold so felt it was overpriced for what we got.
Very tasty burgers. The wings are melt in you mouth. Great fries.
Never disappoints, I'd eat here everyday if I could 😍
Food is banging was delicious and comes out quick
Food was nice. Staff were friendly. No complaint in terms of dining here. The only problem we had related to their location. Postcode takes you partially down the same street to some pretty curious stairs which require a lift (prams/wheelchairs). The lift didn't operate properly so we carried a pram up stairs to go round a complex housing odeon cinema. Where we saw our first direction leading to Almost Famous, then down another lift (annoyed by this point). To be taken back outside and realise we had pasted the easiest route of access earlier. We were late for our booking unfortunately. If your not familiar with Great Northern then good luck.
We then had to run out and gather other members of our party as they had the same difficulties.
Burger took about 40 minutes to arrive but it tasted alright
Was all great, if anything the wait was a little longer than expected. But still amazing!
Excellent service , friendly, quick.
Nice food not too expensive for a city centre venue.
(Little more choice would be good though & maybe some desserts ..ice cream maybe)
Overall though ...spot on!
Staff very rude, walk off mid conversation about drinks! Tried to order drinks then got a rude response of “are you not ordering through the barcode”.
Great burgers! Rapid service once you’ve submitted your order via the QR code. Bacon, bacon fries are a must!!
