Don’t waste your money here.

The service is slow, one waiter is helpful the other has an attitude possibly because they are slightly busy (I don’t know how).

The food is poor quality and over cooked, I think someone went to Iceland!

There is a reason all the other restaurants at the Lowry have a queue of people and this one doesn’t.

A disappointment from start to finish. The steak bought up memories of Charlie Chaplin's cooked boot and that probably was tastier and less tough. The Bourguignon was so fatty that is was inedible and consisted of a small lump of mashed potato and lots of sauce in the bowl to try and make you believe you were getting a normal-sized portion. Service not great and a total nightmare if booking on a Virgin Experience with VERY limited choices. We were charged £2 extra for a drizzle of sauce on the steak, but even that didn't make it any tastier or more edible. Best to be avoided - a total rip off!!

Just about the worst beef burger I’ve been unfortunate enough to bite into... the waitress suggested the reason for it tasting like cardboard was because they grill the meat, ha, if that’s the result they need to change their cooking technique. The service was charmless but at lest they took the cost off the bill.

We went after a theatre matinee. There is not much to say: The waiter was running about in a harrassed manner but seemed to be trying to please. Four of us had different dishes and all were edible but unsatisfying. We were expecting so much more so won't be going again.

Service extraordinarily slow. When it arrive (mor ethan one hour !) fries were cold and steak of dubious quality, Complaints were not well handled. Manager seemd out of her depth. Assured me it was alway like this - i.e. very poor.
