·Dined on 7 October 2017

We had read all the reviews before booking and were really looking forward to the evening. Everything was really good, the only thing that I didn't think was quite as good as I was expecting to be, was the food. Although it was very nice it wasn't quite up to the standard we were expecting, which was a great shame. My steak was a little too fatty and although I ordered it medium rare it was still very firm on the plate. The ham hock and pea terrine however, was fantastic and as I said earlier the service was second to none.

A great place for drinks or food with a lovely ambience. The main pulling point for me is the great team of staff. They're on the ball, efficient, friendly and happy to chat a little too. I have eaten there a couple of times and have been very impressed both times. I have had a asparagus salad as well as the sirloin steak. Both were fresh, well cooked and presented and tasted very good. Gin cocktails are great as well as the lovely range of beers.

Will definitely return next time I'm in Manchester.

Lovely warm feel to this restaurant. Live music and great cocktail menu. Our waiter was great - kept checking all was ok. Prices realistic!! Only downside, we waited far to long for food and pudding to arrive. It wasn't really busy either. Wouldn't put me off returning.

I came here on a Saturday night with my partner. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and placed at the back of the bar. The service was amazing, the waiters and manager were all very attentative and friendly. The food was delicious with a great choice to choose from. We had a great night. If you are going at a weekend note that they turn the music up in the bar at 9 so if you want something quieter time your meal to end before then.

We thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience recently. The food was excellent and the service was brilliant. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely be eating here in the future. We have visited four times in the last seven months and every time we thought it was outstanding

We were a little early for our booking so we sat at the bar and had a cocktail the bar staff were lovely they had ran out of cream for cocktail so quickly ran to get some whilst appologising for my wait which wasnt too long. We then went upstairs to our table where we were offered water straight away and bread and olives whilst we looked at the menu and took drink orders. We ordered 3 course in all n they were all amazing meat was cooked to perfection the steak just melted in your mouth and the lamb was very succulent and the sides that accoumpanied it wete just fab. Deserts were amazing aswell brownie was spot on. All of the cocktails were fantastic that we had and we had a few. The staff wete attentive but not over the top the decor was gorgeous and very classy would definitely go back

The living room has very nice decor and great food, but we had a girls get together in the evening it was lacking atmosphere (dead), for a Friday night evening. Therefore we ate and moved on elsewhere I don't know what the atmosphere is like Saturday or lunch times????

When we got to the restaurant, there was no record of the Open Table booking, despite me having the email confirmation with me. Fortunately, they had a table. it was excellent but wouldnt use Open table again - too risky.

I enjoyed the experience here at the Living Room. Food was good. Cocktails was amazing and the Bartender was hospitable and friendly. The only downfall was I along with my friend who visited from London would have appreciated to be greeted and taken to our reserved dining table. But we did make the Bartender aware and he was professional and polite and greeted us and made us feel comfortable.

At our visit the venue was under staffed therefore service slow and having to wait a couple of times with no drinks. The staff were friendly and polite and and it was not the individuals fault for poor waitress service. Food all came out at different times and one starter was forgotten as was one of the sides with the main course.

The resteraunt is upstairs which has recently been renovated to a really high standard . The food is good we ordered steaks which were vert nice the only gripe I had there was I asked for the steak to be medium well just slightly pink but it wasnt it was overkooked . The main complaint though was it being my husbands birthday when we arrived one of the waiters said at the end of the meal they were going to bring a small cake out with sparklers on which would have been really nice. But sadly no cake arrived. I was very disappointed because the resteraunt was not that busy so you really couldn't say they had an excuse just other than forgetting. Would I visit here again? Probably not

The Living Room is great in the evening if you are with a group of friends, we went at 9:30 on a Saturday night and although we were upstairs away from the bar it was still very loud, to be fair we knew what it would be like. Eaten at lunchtime many times which is more relaxed. The food was good and service alright, depends what you're looking for really. Good venue for reasonably priced food in a vibrant bar/restaurant.
