    Just over the road from the Opera House so a great place to eat as we were going to the theatre after eating. It was noisy, but then it was FA cup day involving both Manchester teams so there might have been some celebrations. Despite being busy we were served quickly and the food was good. My only problem was the booth we were say at. It was tiny and given I'm over 6ft tall, it was a bit of an uncomfortable squeeze!

    We held a corporate meal for a large team that doesn't get together very often, the Blues Kitchen was the perfect venue for a catch up, good food and amazing service. We were given the private dining room, which was a bit quieter so we could talk and the servers were always on hand to make our visit more comfortable. There was a good selection of tasty food that was served quickly and drinks kept coming. After we finished the meal we moved to the airstream caravan which was a hit with our team and gave us some good photo opportunities. Thank you to the Blues Kitchen team for giving us a great night out!

    Great choice of food on the lunch menu and decor and ambience is lovely. However, would be helpful if the server could be clearer when explaining the lunch deal in terms of what drinks were included to avoid unnecessary overpayment and awkwardness when it comes to paying the bill.

    Very nice food and atmosphere but just felt very rushed at the end as we were told they needed the table back in 10 minutes. The lady then returned just a minute or two later with the card machine for me to pay when I didn't ask. We were going to have more drinks but felt that rushed we left and went elsewhere. Overall just service was rushed but other than that food and atmosphere and value were bang on.

    Love this place. Food, service and live music all great. The only downside is that it is really loud, so it's hard to have a conversation with anyone but the person sitting next to you.

    The Blues Kitchen is an unreal venue. The food was incredible, but the highlight of our date night was the service from Amelia. Amelia really got to know us and went above and beyond to make our night amazing. The barman was also very lovely. Didn’t catch his name but he was a cool dude. Will be back!!

    Fabulous party for eight of us, the service and staff excellent, they knew what they was doing, patient and polite with a smile. I liked how although we was early and we waited at the bar for our other guests to arrive when it was the time for the table, the host came and got us to get seated. No faff! The food super tasty and great value. Love the live music downstairs and club atmosphere upstairs and a great atmosphere. We will be back and highly recommend!
