Located in the heart of the city centre, on John Dalton Street, near Albert Square, the company's flagship Restaurant Bar & Grill is striking and contemporary in appearance. Situated on two floors, the restaurant provides the ultimate dining experience with a stunning suspended staircase leading from the long bar to the large first floor restaurant. Guests can enjoy a more casual dining experience in the downstairs bar area, where dishes include the delicious beef burger with Monterey jack cheese, caramelized onion relish, fries and barbeque sauce, or the mezze plate, ideal for a snack to share. Alternatively, the upstairs glass conservatory or bustling dining area near to the open kitchen ensures the perfect setting for lunch or dinner. For those simply wishing to enjoy an award winning cocktail or their favourite drink, the long bar is the perfect setting with its charismatic bar team and extensive drinks list.

    Service was far too slow. Had to chase on a drinks order 3 times! Table furniture old and not in line with other Bar and Grills I’ve been to.

    Table was booked with Friends for my Birthday. Very disappointing and would not recommend. Service was terrible, had to ask several times for our order and the attitude of the staff serving us wasn’t friendly and like we was bothering them. Food was bland and over priced.

    Table was not ready when we arrived at the appointed time - so poor start. Restaurant was busy (Mothers Day) but not full so slow service was then also disappointing (although our server was very good when he got to us). Food was very good - worth coming back for second visit to see if speed and service is improved. Overall- enjoyable and hopefully the issues on this occasion were a one off.

    Visited the Bar & Grill on many occasions but mainly in the evening. Decided to have a few drinks and sample the food before the Manchester United game during the Christmas break. Food was lovely with a wide selection as was the drinks menu.

    Was over sold on the side dishes by a lot. Told all mains came bare but some actually came with accomplishments already . Food arrives and was very good, the manager overheard us mentioning the overselling to one of the staff and very quickly removed the side dishes from the bill so overall very happy customer, staff just need to be true full or understand there menu in the first place. Good atmosphere would return.

    Waited 20minutes for a drink then was delivered the wrong ones! Asked for ice to put in water a champagne /wine bucket was dragged over with melted ice and bottle put in that. The waiter we had initially was terrible. However asked waitress for ice and that was rectified. Glass of Orange juicecame with a brown mint leaf floating at top. However couldn't fault the food it was delicious (a little on the salty side) and the music was fab. Was nice atmosphere. I would go there again however my friend from down south definitely wouldn't.... Which is a shame. Wasn't worth the price.

    Went here for an evening meal with my girlfriend. We were sat on the balcony and it happened not to be raining. The seats were comfy and the atmosphere was good. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff who made the experience more enjoyable. The food and the drink were wonderful, we had a steak and a fish dish, made all the better by a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Worth a visit for all those wanting to eat in Manchester.

    After waiting at the desk for about 10 minutes because they could not find my booking the experience was fine. Food was good but not for the price, there are better restaurants nearby that are cheaper. There was a loud group on the table next to us that spoilt the meal, but that's not the restaurants fault.

    Very disappointing experience. Food very average and in my opinion not value for money. So many items not available due to a busy Saturday nite!! Perhaps too complacent and taking things for granted. Would not dine there again

    A very noisy pace but was packed with Christmas parties. Music too loud to chat across the table to friends. Food was good but portions were very small. We didn't order any side dishes as the waiter told us that vegetables were part of the dish - big mistake! Service was excellent. Waiter attentive but not overpowering. We will book again.

    A really lovely restaurant with a super balcony, in my opinion spoilt by the smokers who bag the best spot! Attentive staff, really nice glassware and table setting with lots of room (we ate mid week). The Rib Eye was not as good as last time sadly, in fact it was rather poor but the evening was great fun and the puddings fabulous

    I recently treated my younger sister to a champagne lunch to celebrate her 40th birthday. Ate on the outside terrace as it was such a beautiful day. The weather did add to it being a lovely experience for her but the atmosphere, fantastic food and overall excellent service by the staff meant we had a great time. Me and my husband frequent the Bar and Grill on many occasions and as always we enjoy our time spent here.

    I booked the Restaurant Bar & Grill for my wife's birthday. It was a Monday so there was no weekend crush! We were offered a table on the Terrace which was lovely and it was explained that although it was a cold night, the area was well heated which it was. Blankets were provided. We ordered Steak sandwiches which were lovely. The service was excellent and when we queried an error on the bill, it was dealt with straightaway.

    We have been to this restaurant in summer last year, the food and service was excellent. This time myself and my girlfriend was disappointed as we expectedthe same ststandard as before. We ordered the same food as last time and was not impressed as we waited 20minutesfor a glass of and a bottle of beer. The food was still good but the steak wasn't as tender and the chips were burned. The price had also increased but wouldn't have been as bothered if the standard had of been better or at least the same as the first time. Regards Damien

    We had a lovely meal, lots of wine and amazing food. We sat on the heating terrace which was the perfect temperature and reminded us of being in Miami ! My only wonder is why more people weren't in there. I think they need to change their name as it doesn't sell it as well as it should!
