THE APPEAL OF DAMON RUNYON, the New York storyteller, newspaperman and sportswriter came from his mastery, but also invention, of 1920s American slang – a mixture of the ‘louche and the lugubrious’ according to the New Yorker magazine. He would go to Lindy’s, an all-night Jewish deli on Broadway that became Mindy’s in his stories, and listen.

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.

    poor that some of the menu wasn't available and didn't communicate that beforehand
    Runyon's Restaurant at Voco ManchesterResponded on 29 June 2024
    Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We usually always let know our guests about missing items just before we take any orders, If we missed that process with you Please accept my apologies and I will make sure to re-train staff on this matter. Also, I am not sure these two stars are what we deserve just for missing a few items from our menu, unfortunately, sometimes it happens in hospitality where our supplies can be short of stock and this following affects our menu. However, we were checking on you during your dining experience regarding food quality and service and you didn't mention to us any negative comments. We followed the same process during payment and as well no concern was raised to us. I hope you understand the importance of honest reviews for our business. Many Thanks

    Food was pretty good, we were there for pre-theatre quick food, went for burgers and then eaton mess. My wife didn't realise her burger came with a spicy sauce, but they couldn't have been more accommodating to resolve. Eaton mess could have done with more meringue and strawberries, slightly over balanced towards cream. The wine I chose was great, and the old fashioned was good too. Service was pleasant and efficient. Would come back again. Toilets downstairs weren't working, so had to make a trek up to the 9th floor, hopefully that will be resolved quickly!
    Runyon's Restaurant at Voco ManchesterResponded on 17 June 2024
    Dear Rich Thank You Very much for your positive feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the food and service at our venue. I apologise for the inconvenience regarding the Toilets I can assure you this was already actioned and resolved. Regarding the Eton Mess dessert, we will take your comment on board as we are in the process of implementing a new menu that will be available in a couple of weeks. Once again, thank you for taking the time to leave your review, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

    No staff to seat on arrival had to ask a bar staff employee Kitchen closed for cleaning so had to wait to order Food tasteless, the buttermilk chicken coating was damp and not crispy (had to remove as it was awful) the pickles were raw and very greasy as were the onion rings, majority of the meal was returned, had asked for no cheese but they put it on anyway ! No one else in the restaurant And just to add insult they trtied to add 20% service charge !!!! AVOID shocking from start to finish - Mothers day meal I will never forget

    Overall a lovely evening. Took a while for anyone to come and take a drinks order. My husband doesn’t drink so ordered a 0% beer. He was offered three to choose from. Then the waitress came over and explained there was no 0% options available and would he like a cider? He asked if it was 0% and she said no. Very disappointing in 2024 to have no non-alcoholic drinks available other than soft drinks. Especially in January when lots of people are doing dry January. Food was great, the salt and pepper chicken starter didn’t taste like I expected but was still really nice.
    Runyon's Restaurant at Voco ManchesterResponded on 29 January 2024
    Dear Kate Thank You for Kind Rewiev. Regarding your drinks order, I am sorry if there was some kind of misunderstanding as we offer Alkohol Free Beer, indeed is not exactly 0.0% but it's 0.5% which is still under UK Law labelled as Alkohol Free product. We have as well range of non-alcoholic spirits and mocktails in our offer. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, and I hope we can see you again. Many Thanks Lucas Daminski F&B Manager

    Second time in Manchester this year, but for us there is only one place we wanted to eat, and once again we were not let down, the service was great, never felt rushed and they are always friendly, the food was plentiful and very tasty, everything was well cooked. We have decided to travel up to Manchester at least once a year, and not only will we stay at the Brooklyn hotel we with out fail we will be eating at Runyon’s Restaurant, so thank you to all the staff, first class
