Very disappointed in our meal tonight. The fish and lobster pie had no lobster in it and very little fish. The size of the dish was also quite small and left me feeling hungry.
When I mentioned how dissatisfied I was with the quality of the pie and the lack of lobster and very small quantity of fish the waiter said she would let the kitchen know. She returned to say that the manager had been informed of my comments on the meal.
But the manager never came to speak to our complaint and the only thing that was offered to us was a free dessert.
It was a overpriced considering there was hardly any fish and no lobster at all in a £14.00 fish and lobster pie.
This was a much anticipated return visit as our last dinner here was very good.

Lovely restaurant, really relaxing atmosphere and very comfortable. We were disappointed to not be made aware of unavailable menu items before the point our order was taken, which meant more time was needed to make a selection. Also disappointed that the “lobster ravioli” was packed full of prawns, and the accompanying sauce/foam was not really what was expected based on the menu description. The beef shin and marrow starter and pork chop main were both fantastic, as were the tuna carpaccio and oysters.
Would happily visit again, but would perhaps ask more questions about the menu items prior to ordering.

Due to being delayed in the Apple store we were very late arriving for our table (1 hour). I did phone ahead but we were unaware how long we’d be so were not hopeful of getting a table.
When we arrived the restaurant greeter and indeed the manageress could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and despite the restaurant being packed, we were allocated a table.
Our server immediately introduced himself and contributed to making our evening an immense success. His personality was infectious and his knowledge of the menu extensive.
The food was sublime and all in all the experience was amazing.
Thank you to everybody and we will definitely be back very soon.
Love Frances and Steven Bradwell x

Big menu but with emphasis on shellfish. Would have preferred to see more fresh fish choices. Food well prepared would neither recommend or dissuade others.

Really enjoyed the meal and surroundings however although it did not effect us on this occasion the service in between courses might have been slow on another (seated at 7pm finished at 9.30pm x 4)

Fabulous place for seafood and fish dishes. The starters are amazing. I was a little disappointed in the bouillabaisse as there wasn't much fish in it. But I would definitely visit again.

Just not the best place to eat and it’s pricey for the quality of food as well. Each time we have been to the restaurant it’s not been great and each person has some issue. I appreciate sometimes they try to rectify issues but it’s not always the best remedy.

Overpriced, underwhelmed and not bothered about going back.
Apparently they had special offers on, our waiter just forgot to mention them when he sat us down in the virtually empty restaurant (1 other table).
Glass of champagne was delightful, the fact the starter arrived whilst we were drinking it gave us about 30 mins to rink the bottle of wine we had also ordered .
Small portions for big prices, £17 for a matchbox sized piece of cod on a plate of chick peas.

Lovely first visit, food was nice although waited 35 mins for mains and therefore drank a bottle of wine in that time.. main was cold but soon sorted, felt the portions were just a little small so would defiantly order extra sides , deserts were nice overall nice place, new girl who served us was very friendly, smiling and good all round.

The shell fish tasted of nothing watery like frozen
Defrosted and soaked in water the whelks still had eyes in usually are prepared with eyes off and never in my life have I been given a raw scollop in any restaurant I’ve heard the Randall in soho was good I eat in seafood restaurants all over the world I think maybe the transition to Manchester
Somewhere went wrong !!!

Very good meal on the whole,

Welcomed and seated straight away, staff were polite and attentive. Food was good on the whole, girlfriend had the ravioli and seabream, which she loved, I had the calamari and the dressed crab. Wasn’t a fan of the crab however this may have been a poor choice on my part. Dessert was lovely. The singer was brilliant also! Price was fair.

I'd been wanting to try this for a while. I took my mum, daughter and a friend in-between Christmas and New Year - we all love shellfish. My daughter and I shared the oysters to start and these were the high point. Everyone enjoyed their food and the ambience. There was a slight issue with the squid my friend ordered in that it was overcooked. They replaced this immediately with an alternative and did not charge which we appreciated. When I go again which I definitely will, I will have the Plats de fruit de mare based on the quality of the oysters alone.
