Bruschetta poor quality, well cut ingredients, lacking in flavour and dry. Bread base disappointing.

Lamb a little over cooked. Cauliflower cheese undercooked and cheese sauce watery and flavour didn’t shine through.

Irish coffee served in a latte glass , not much whiskey and lack of distinct cream head

Overall underwhelming experience.

Luxurious surroundings, average priced drinks, great food and discreet service. Didn’t feel rushed, even on a busy Saturday night. Nice touch (cake with candle etc) acknowledging birthday celebration even though we never mentioned it to our server (Just added note to open table booking).

Visited for a dinner reservation with my husband to celebrate my birthday. Food and drink was exceptional. Rosso serve the best cocktails I have ever tasted. My visit was made extra special by the waiting staff singing happy birthday to me and presenting me with a birthday dessert. Outstanding restaurant and first class service. Thank you.

Our first time here after a recommendation from a friend and so glad we booked. A very Classy dining experience. Sat in the bar with a few drinks first, the place quickly filled up with a mix of couples and young designer clad chaps which created a good buzz. The food was good quality, we had the Chateaubriand which was delicious. So much steak I had to leave some! Meal for 2 with cocktails, decent bottle of wine and 2 courses came in at £210, but for a special treat, well worth it.

Great atmosphere and the food was lovely and very tasty. Service was good and we didn’t have to wait too long for the food. However, it was clearly evident by one of the Managers who his favourites were and the exceptional levels of attention those guests received went way beyond what you would consider to be professional. His actions were most immature and unbecoming for the setting of such an exclusive restaurant as Rosso. We will visit Rosso again but not in a rush.

I had a table booked for 7 and didn’t get seated until 7.35, we then waited for our food for the waiter to tell me they had dropped mine and I would have to wait for another one to be made. Once the food came it was to a high standard and the overall experience was good, just a shame about the waiting about.

Food was great as always from here. Service was perfect and very friendly. The new decor is much brighter than previously and really makes the restaurant look very large and open.
The food that was ordered was hot and very tasty and the deserts are amazing.

We visited for my partner’s birthday and had some unwanted attention from another customer who was dining alone. The staff were amazing, they dealt with the situation very professionally, making sure the troublesome diner left without disturbance to other customers and due to our misfortune, they ensured they made our evening extra special. The food and service was amazing. We will be back and would recommend Rosso to everyone. Thank you for making my partner’s birthday extra special 😀

The meal was booked as a birthday present for my friend.
We both really enjoyed the afternoon.
My friend was sent a birthday cake which was a lovely touch.
We both really enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back.
The lunchtime special and house wine price was great value for money.
I have already recommended the restaurant to family and friends.
Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon where we both felt we were well and truly looked after by alm the staff we came into contact with.

We visited Manchester to celebrate our anniversary and selected Rosso from a choice of many lovely restaurants for our evening meal. booked a table for 9:30pm and despite arriving 15 minuets early, we didn’t get seated until 10pm. By this point we were starving! My husband ordered a steak to be cooked medium and after a short wait, the steak arrived rare! Not even medium-rare, just rare. By this point, we’d had enough and sent the meal back. The Manager did give us our drinks for free to make up for it which was good of him but on our next trip to Manchester we sharnt be visiting Rosso again which is a shame.

Although we advised on booking that it was both mine and my boyfriends birthday (on the same day) nothing was mentioned, no happy birthday, no cosy booth, nothing. This is the only place we have ever been for our joint birthday and not received as much as a 'happy birthday' from the staff. When leaving I made the front of house staff aware that I was disappointed and their response was that some customers tell us its their birthday and on the night the customer moans because it isn't their actual birthday. I don't agree that was an acceptable response in all honesty, one member of staff became very defensive towards my comments - again not professional and definitely not when it's a) your birthday and b) an expensive dining experience!

We booked weeks ago for my daughters birthday, we were shown to a terrible table by the bar. When I asked to take a booth which all were vacant I was told they were booked for big parties we then got offered a table near a serving center. In the next two hours one table had 3 people sat at it and the other 4, so the air head who seated us blatantly lied. The cocktails are superb but the food poor gusto or similar restaurants are far better, just too salty and too big chunks of meat in the pasta and pizza dishes. The waitress that served plus was very nice but who do the front of house saffron think they are i’m Paying and you don not have the right to look down your nose at me or anybody !
