    I love this place and the food is good and even better when there’s an offer. Service on this occasion wasn’t as good as previous visits but I would still come again as I’ve had fab experiences on other occasions

    Very nice lunch at this restaurant. Only downside was the price which included a 10% discretionary service charge, but this wasn't deductible at the point of payment - so much for discretionary! Otherwise, the food and service was good.

    We booked a table for our New Years Eve meal, we’d heard some amazing reviews about the Second Floor Bar and Brasserie so was dying to try it! The food was fabulous, very delicious and the presentation was perfect. The only really disappointing part of the service we received was the waiter has forgotten what desserts we had ordered and asked us to reorder after we had been waiting for them for 45 minutes, he also forgot our complimentary glass of Prosecco too, we had to ask for this. One thing to note is that water isn’t complimentary and is chargeable, as is the mixers for any Gin that you may order, I must state that the price of the mixers was not advertise in the drinks menu, just the price of the Gin itself. Overall rather happy with a time and experience, I feel that we will return again now that we have experience and know to expect additional charges for mixers.

    Visited on Saturday evening, the food was ok but ordered a steak and got the smallest portion of fries ever. Service was really slow. Disappointing experience.

    Stylish and smart surrounds welcomed us 2 diners to the Second Floor on a quiet week-day evening. Reception and waitressing staff were both friendly and at ease and helped create a welcome atmosphere despite the fact that the restaurant was pretty quiet. I loved the Paloma cocktail that came with the deal. Above all my memory of the food is of distinct but not overbearing flavours that just made the difference. Best of all was the pudding which seemed to be a fusion of dates and possibly treacle. Overall a most enjoyable evening at a set and affordable price.

    Three courses and a cocktail, all exceedingly well presented and cooked to perfection. Service excellent and the ambiance good. The only niggle was the receptionist who said “we are very busy, but we’ve tried our best to seat you” despite us having booked weeks in advance. It didn’t spoil the evening though and would recommend.

    Great value meal - 3 courses and a cocktail for £22. One of our party is Coeliac and they were happy to adapt every dish to make it suitable. Service was good, attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely be back

    Perhaps because it's in a department store and caters for shoppers wanting a bite to eat as well as diners, but the menu appears to be an odd hotchpotch of "fine dining" (like venison with celeriac choucroute and chard) and snacks (club sandwich) which is a bit odd. Pricing is similarly all over the place, The Venison dish was good - other dishes were declared to be a bit "beige". Has a city view, which is nice if you're bringing guests from out of town. Service wasn't particularly swift, and the drinks waiter didn't know the difference between a dry sherry and a sweet sherry.

    Always superb at HN. My office is just round the corner so I visit often for either drinks or meals with clients, guests or friends. The team there are excellent and always look afterward me and my guests well. A wonderful place with great people, exceptional service and superb food. Well worth the visit. Never had a bad time, drink or food there in the many years I have been going. A must visit if in Manchetser and the views out of the window are stunning too.

    Special deals are good but the a la carte is over priced . I am a good cook and rarely go out as I end up being disappointed. On this occasion I found the food bland and under seasoned . If you pay these prices you expect it to taste good

    Food wasn’t great, by far the worst Christmas dinner I’ve had this year! The staff were friendly, they got something wrong on our order, he said he had realised he had got it wrong when bringing the food but didn’t think to say until I complained after. After this they were quick to refund it so no complaints there. It’s a lovely view and the staff were nice, it’s just a shame about the food! I must say, the starter was lovely, just not the other 2 courses!

    Empty restaurant, loud dance music playing, clumsy waiter spilling wine on the floor, glass, table and menus. Had to be told to wipe the floor and not enough menu knowledge. Pricey tagliatelle starter was dry and unremarkable. Nothing like the London equivalent and nothing to remedy after feedback was given.
