Runyon’s Restaurant at Hotel Brooklyn
“One evening I am sitting in Mindy’s restaurant putting on the gefilte fish, which is a dish I am very fond of, when in come three parties from Brooklyn – Harry the Horse, Little Isadore and Spanish John.”
Runyon married a down-on-her-luck Spanish countess from Madrid, 26 years his younger, who turned out to be an up-on-her-heels Mexican dancer from Tampico. When he died his ashes were taken up in a plane and sprinkled all over New York.

Brunch at Runyon's was amazing! We were greeted warmly by all the members of the team, had the menu explained to us and had glasses of Prosecco in our hands before we knew it. You can choose 3 items off the menu but the portions are generous and all of our group only managed 2 each. The Prosecco was tasty and really did feel 'bottomless' - our drinks were refilled speedily and we didn't go hungry or thirsty at any point.
The Eggs Benedict was a particular highlight for me, with super tasty crispy bacon and perfectly poached eggs. We will definitely be returning to, especially for the amazingly good price! Thank you to the lady who looked after us on Sunday 13th June at 12pm - sorry we didn't catch her name but she was a star!
Had a lovely meal at Runyons. The braised lamb and the sweet potato wedges were amazing couldn't fault them, I had the new york stirp which was a little dry and more medium/well than medium/rare as ordered, but it was still nice- just wish I'd chosen the lamb as the other member of my party ordered! Our waitress was lovely and attentive. And rhe atmosphere was nice, although music was a tad loud. Will definitely visit again.
Dear Sarah, Many thanks for all your kind words and for letting us know how we can further improve. Looking to see you soon. TEAM RUNYONS
We stayed at the hotel and decided to eat at Runyon’s restaurant. They catered for my serve allergies amazingly and the food was lovely. The staff couldn’t do enough for you. Would definitely eat here again and would definitely stay here again also.

Dear Anon, I wish I knew your name just to say thank you. Lovely write up and very kind review we really appreciate it. TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS
Staff were helpful, food was quick but mediocre and pricey.
The service here was excellent. Very attentive but not overly so.
The atmosphere is fitting of the theme of the hotel - New York style!
Food was authentic and incredibly tasty.
They made my daughter, who was celebrating her 21st, feel very special with a complimentary brownie complete with candle.
I cannot recommend this restaurant or the hotel within which is situated enough.

Dear Stefan, Thanks for all your kind words they are appreciated and only spur the team on. Looking forward to your return sometime soon TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS
Food the service were the best we have experienced since the reopening of indoor dining. We had starters, mains and desserts... the starters were to die for, especially the Clam Chowder, the mains which followed certainly kept up the standard, the lamb was absolutely incredible, the meat melt in your mouth, and the flavours were Devine all the dishes were presented beautifully also. The desserts were ok, nothing to complain about but nothing to complain about. I now wish we had tried the s’mores - next time we will.
The service was impeccable, the staff were lovely, attentive and always available and the wait time between courses was spot on, not too long and with enough time to savour the tastes from the previous course.
We are already planning our return trip to Runyon’s and Hotel Brooklyn.
Dear Lynsey, What a lovely review thank you for all your kind words and praise for a team who just want to do a great job. Come back and see us soon when either staying or just dining as a none resident TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS
Visited during our stay at the hotel and was not disappointed. the food was delicious, not a big menu but food was fantastic cannot suggest any improvements. staff were very friendly too
Dear Angelas, Thanks so much for all your kind words and for letting others know how much you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to your return TEAM RUNYONS

What a great night. Top place. Lovely food and great service. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely meal, cracking service from Peter. Would highly recommend.
Very stylish and a fun place to stay. Great location and very clean and tidy. Staff were very accommodating.
Dear D8NTW, Thanks for all your kind words and rating we really appreciate them as it helps the team in delivering a great experience for each and every guest consistently. Kind regards TEAM RUNYONS
Food was amazing and we really enjoyed the meal. Great service and value.
Great venue, great food, really nice staff but a bit chaotic to be honest with the service. Several other tables had issues with the service too.
Want to give them the benefit of doubt as we haven’t long reopened from lockdown but the floor staff didn’t seem to be given direction or clear jobs to follow.
Will visit again hopefully once things are a-bit more ordered.
The food was great though.
Although only 2 hours into service, they had run out of lamb. Ordered a burger which was very dry and overcooked and bacon missing
Food was okay. It wasnt nice as the restaurants in some of the other hotels in Manchester.
Excellent Steak. Great cocktails and Gin selection. We had a lovely meal and then moved to the bar for after drinks. The service was brilliant, Felt like they couldn’t do enough for us. Normally eat here if we are staying at the hotel but I’d come regardless I enjoy it that much.
Dear Andy, You've been very kind thank you we really appreciate everything you have mentioned including the interaction by the team. All the very best TEAM RUNYONS
The service we received was excellent, from the moment we arrived we were welcomed and looked after by the same waitress throughout which never left us wanting. The food was to a very high standard, presented excellently and flavoursome. Over all a faultless experience. Great value for money. Would recommend to all.
Dear Ian, Thanks so much for all your kind words about your Runyons experience. We really appreciate it and hope you enjoy the rest of your stay. TAKE CARE Team Runyons
Very nice food with a genuine New York twist. The steaks were excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would certainly eat here again.
Fantastic food my lamb melted in the mouth
The staff were friendly and bubbly and very attentive
Ambience was cool with great music
Dear Anon, We so wish we knew your name but thank you for everything you've mentioned we really appreciate your kind words TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS
Food wasn’t value for money, no one else in the restaurant was a bad sign
Staff really friendly
Very disappointed, spent a few days in Manchester and ate in a few excellent restaurants/ hotels. Definitely not value for money. Shame really Brooklyn Hotel is fabulous.
We waited ages to be served for drinks. The food was excellent but when asked for the dessert menu and more drinks they never came back with the menu or our drinks. To the point we had to walk out because we was waiting half an hour just to get a menu for the dessert. Not really happy with the service.
First time at Runyons did not disappoint food wise - beautiful flavours, cooked perfectly and a decent size. Service was friendly and professional but every stage literally took ages! 40mins for our first drinks to arrive then we ordered and it was 45mins for our starters - mains followed swiftly to be fair but second round of drinks again took about half an hour. Staff new or agency so seemed lost and disorganised - a few were excellent and worked like dogs to pull up the slack but this was the only area that lacked. I'm sure when they've been working a few more weeks things will improve but it was only half full so could be a long night if its super busy! Would recommend and would go again - eventually 🙂
Great restaurant. And one Id not know about before, relaxed atmosphere with great food.
Dear Anon, Thank you for your comments and rating we really appreciate it and look forward to your return. TEAM RUNYONS
We had the bottomless brunch which was great value and lovely food. One party was gluten free and sadly there wasn’t much choice but they tried to adapt as best as possible. We will be back it was a great little find
Very very slow service, had to wait ages, food good when it eventually came
Great food great service would go back we had brunch menu good value for money
The welcome was really nice but the service was slow all the way through. The food was pretty good apart from the Burrata starter which was tasteless and the beef main course was really fatty. There was a queue early on and by 11pm it was pretty dead. We finished our meal and were not offered any more drinks. To top it off we were over charged by about £20!
The food wasn’t great but the service was good and staff were friendly
Brilliant night at Runyon's. Staff were great and food was fab.
Thanks Sarah really kind of you to say TEAM RUNYONS
Was a good meal would go again and would recommend. Steak was good but next time I will have the burger as it looks immense
Dear Andrew, And we're happy to oblige either way. Thank you for your kind feedback which is appreciated and only helps us improve. SEE YOU SOON TEAM RUNYONS
We had the clam chowder and scallops to start followed by short rib of beef, everything was cooked to perfection, casual setting, relaxing atmosphere
Dear Shirley, Thank you for everything you've written we really appreciate your custom and the comments about your experience and we hope we'll have you back here soon for an even better dining experience once things get back to normal. TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS

Dear Anon, We're so pleased you enjoyed your special occasion in Runyons Restaurant and thank you for all your kind words about the team and especially Peter who looked after you. We look forward to your return very soon. TAKE CARE TEAM RUNYONS
The staff were some of the best staff I have ever had the pleasure of. Both the restaurant and hotel staff were fabulous and so helpful. The food was wonderful, drinks lovely. My only criticism and the only reason I wouldn’t return to the restaurant is that the music is just far too loud for me. Not bad but just too loud, couldn’t hear myself think and sadly it spoilt what was otherwise fabulous.
Lovely place, lovely atmosphere, great food and the staff were polite, friendly and very welcoming. We had a fab afternoon!
Dear Roxanne, Thank you for all your kind words and compliments about Runyons and your Hotel Brooklyn experience. So pleased and looking forward to your return sometime soon. ALL THE BEST TEAM RUNYONS
