Food was lovely apart from the steak. Although decent I was expecting a lot better for the price and reputation it has gained. I’ve had a much more flavourful piece of meat for half the price at other places I’ve been. Id go back though but maybe try another cut or a burger because that looked great.
Music not really Energetic but too loud for comfortable conversation. Staff attentive and food well prepared and flavoursome.
Restaurant is nice and trendy, tables are a good distance from one another so you don't feel like they are cramming you in. Only criticism is they were out of truffle oil at the beginning of a weekend evening service so couldn't order some of their signature dishes.
Sadly didn’t live up to expectations. Service slow and impersonal. Steaks decent but pretty expensive with only one side included and a 12.5% service charge added automatically which makes for an awkward experience if you don’t feel the service was great.
Locale molto bello e curato. Forse più adatto ad una cena serale. Cibo buono e sevizio perfetto. Consigliato
Excellent food and service. Decor was very nice. Would definitely revisit and recommend. The roast beef was the best ive has in ages
Staff were very attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. Food was fantastic. Will definitely be returning in the near future.
Very friendly service and great food.
Amazing food and incredible service. Would definitely return.
birthday meal for myself and my daughter food was very enjoyable we had the Chateaubriand £70 which was gorgeous the desert cocktails were a bit on the expensive side but it was for a special occasion. Not the kind of place to got to often as it is expensive but good for special occasions.
Absolutely amazing food, steak is made to perfection! Very well priced, service was spot on. Amazing touch to the night with it being my partners birthday they give birthday cards for the occasion. Fantastic
Amazing food and impeccable service! Fantastic experience, the restaurant and bar are also gorgeous - stunning place. Thanks team for a wonderful experience (we’ll be back)
Wonderful restaurant, fast service and amazing products, would totally recommend!
Been here a number of times now, the Sunday lunch is the best in the whole of Manchester. It is like Michelin star food without the prices. I would always highly recommend this place.
Fantastic place for a lovely romantic meal or catch up with friends
Food was amazing and creative!
The steak was to die for and the chocolate orange mousse was the same
Great selection of gin based cocktails, not may vodka or rum based though
Service was great throughout and not too intruding
We had a great time on Saturday evening, the food was outstanding. Definitely up there with one of best meals I've ever had.
We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary, and we felt that Alston fit both occasions superbly. Service, staff, food and atmosphere: 5*.
Thanks again for a wonderful evening.
Visited with my wife before attending a night at MEN Arena, service was friendly & very helpful, even let me sample a beer before ordering. Food was carefully crafted, presented beautifully & tasted great, portion sizes were spot on & waitress guided us where we needed it; we’ll be back, we left impressed & talking to others about going too!
We ate here on a special menu deal 2 courses and a gin for £15.00. We all had the steak which was cooked to perfection and not a scrap of food was left. Great service, food and atmosphere, will definitely return.
The food was amazing! My husband said it was “the best steak he has ever eaten” the presentation, flavour, service all exceeded our expectations. We can’t recommend this place enough.
Delicious food, really friendly service. Loved everything about it. I would go back again in a heartbeat.
Amazing service from the minute you step through the door to the second you step out the door.
Cocktails and homemade Gins were amazing, steak cooked to perfection and a waiters that give geniue good customer service.
Definatley going back
Fabulous meal well looked after by staff steak served exactly as requested will visit again
First time customer went for a date. Food was fantastic. selection of gins were fantastic and partner love the cocktails and food. Deffo a 10/10 staff were very help full and polite..will be going again..
Booked this for my fiances birthday. Great restaurant. Amazing steak and really attentive staff. Can't wait to go back
Really enjoyed the food, drinks and hospitality. Great value.
Amazing burgers and mac and cheese! We all had a great night here. Also enjoyed the cocktails!
Second time we have been here as the steak we had first time was excellent. We ordered the chateaubriand medium it came a bit on the rare side it was delicious but as my partner does not like it to red was not what was ordered. Also ask for another drink when main was served and this was forgotten not good enough for the prices charged here. The starter and dessert menu could also do with a change not a lot of choice. The main problem with this restaurant though is they add a 12.% service charge automatically to your bill do not know if the management are just plain greedy or stupid or both as the to most people in England this just grates you, also you notice people having to embarrassingly ask for it to be removed, for this reason alone will not be returning and I would say would also put off a lot more people.
Great steaks and great service. Lovedvit and will be back.
Wow this is like a tucked away gem! It was amazing keep up the good work.
Booked Sunday lunch for our anniversary,we had an early booking so was not busy.The venue was very nice well laid out,staff very pleasant and attentive . The menu was very good and reasonably priced,the food was very good ,would recommend .
We had an excellent dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I had a perfect steak after a special salmon starter, where my better half had delicious scallops followed by a tasty hake dish. We got a free dessert to share, as an anniversary present of the owner. The staff was very helpful and friendly. However, we had to remind our waiter of the 30% discount offer that we had booked for.
The location is ideal, right between the Arndale shopping center and Victoria station. Reservation recommended or maybe even essential on a Saturday.
Food was delicious.
Great set menu with the gin added did it for us.
Great service and the food was of excellent quality. As steaks go it was right up there. They didn’t have the gin we wanted but they offered various alternatives in its place which was good. There was attentive service but not to the point where you felt rushed. I’d definitely go back.
The service was great, informal and prompt service from people with personality! Restaurant looks nice, the only issue I had was the steak just wasn’t very good. It was cooked pretty well, came just a slightly over how I ordered and was within my normal tolerance. The quality of the meat just didn’t seem good, it was fairly tasteless and unseasoned and pretty tough for a bone in rib eye. Starters were decent, beers are good and sides were good, but for a steakhouse it should be focused on the meat, there are a lot better steaks in Manchester.
2nd visit. 1st visit we had the burgers and they were so nice we went again. This visit we had the burgers again. They are now £17, they have gone smaller, last time we got two patties this time we got one. The burgers and the beef brisket were both over cooked and tasteless. The chips were greasy and were also bland.
The staff are friendly but slightly too friendly which isn't really a bad thing.
Cocktails were nice.
Lovely food, excellent service and great ambience..........all spoilt by total confusion over the voucher system. Staff didn’t understand how it worked, we were asked to pay for an offer already purchased and made to feel uncomfortable, that we were trying to dishonest. Shame as I rated every other aspect of the experience, but unless there is clarity for staff on the offers, all the good work is lost. Will be nervous about using offers again now.
Gorgeous food! We shared the chateaubriand and it was one of the best steaks we have ever had. We will definitely be back! We had a Confidentials voucher which made the total very reasonable.
My boyfriend was given a complimentary chocolate brownie as it was his birthday. All in all a great afternoon.
Great service, lovely steaks, nice cocktails and a welcome extra touches to help us celebrate our anniversary and hubby’s birthday. A bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Would definitely return. Probably the best steak we’ve had in Manchester.
lovely food and relaxed atmosphere. very tentative staff without being in your face. excellent menu choice and the set menu which I used was excellent value for money. Fab choice of gins at the bar.
We opted for a steak which was delicious, not a trace of gristle.
A great selection of gins and not too over priced.
Service was also attentive and they made sure you never had a dry glass.
All in all good value
