The atmosphere was really nice, the food was really good, especially the soup . The staff were all very pleasant and made you feel special. Looking forward to when I will be there in December for the Christmas meal. My sister comes from Edinburgh twice a year and this is our first place to book.

Waitress was really rude and it seemed like an inconvenience to her that we were there - she really needs to work on her customer service skills. My husband's starter came (soup) and was freezing cold. The dish was taken away and another soup arrived which was not the same consistency and seemed like a completely different soup to what had been ordered. The restaurant did offer a different starter but no apology was given. Beautifully decorated for Christmas and enjoyable ambience - just incredibly disappointing service that really lets the restaurant down.

Absolutely stunning from start to finish. I’ve been here before but they really outdid there selves. We were celebrating a friends birthday they brought over a complimentary cake with happy birthday on and gave us two complementary shots. Noise level is something I love, lively, music. Great atmosphere!! Waiter service was great, plenty of Staff who were lovely and bubbly. Would definitely recommend. stunning.

Lovely restaurant and attentive staff , however I feel that tables are very close together and no personal space .
Informed at time if booking it was a birthday but there was no recognition as when eaten here before it was

Mains we chose cod and pork chop
Great service and pleasant staff. Ten percent service charge which we had no problem with as the staff work hard to give a good service. Booked to go again in December can’t wait.

Generous portion sizes for the lovely food was very much appreciated. Beaut interior too. Can be quite loud so more of a place for groups than couples

It was a bit disappointing. The bar area is really nice but the tables in the room by the window were far too close together for a fairly high end restaurant. The staff could be more friendly and it’s all a bit impersonal. I won’t be rushing to return.

Was a real disappointment. We go to this restaurant regularly but my wifes main course really poor .
Complained and they took the service charge off the bill. Should have taken her meal off the bill and given us a refund.

Customer service was amazing, food & cocktails outstanding. I would recommend the tuna it was by far the best I've tasted. The Christmas decorations were beautiful. A truly wonderful experience already planning our next trip.

I would normally recommend Rosso, however this time we got a waitress who didn’t even smile at us once and didn’t add anything to our meal at Rosso that evening. Which was such a shame as my family were visiting from Sweden and I wanted to show them my favourite restaurant in Manchester - a little bit embarrassing to be honest. The pasta dish I also always eat (Ravioli Funghi), was nowhere near as nice as it usually is. There was barely any sauce, the pasta parcels was too al dente and were really thick, which made it feel like I was only eating pasta dough. Such a shame as this used to be my favourite place!

Booked at 1.30. Sent to bar. Had to complain at 1.50 to get seated. Meal took so long we left at 3.45. This was a business lunch so disaster. We have our Christmas party booked for the 20th and I am seriously worried how long food will take . Very disappointed

Lunch menu was great, our only negative comment is the amount of capers on the chicken was a bit overbearing. Pork chop and scallops were excellent. What an amazing dining room. The service was as good as it gets. Chris.
