Restaurant looks really nice & modern but food was really lousy. Mediocre starters, as for the main had to send medium steak back for longer cooking as was covered in blood & purple inside. Then unfortunately my partner was up throwing it back up in the middle of the night. Unfortunately wont be back, loads of good places in manchester for food and this wasnt 1 of them. Fine for cocktails though.

Not the Living Room we Know. Full of. Young wanna be .... not good. Never again on a Saturday night . Sunday afternoon is the time to go , To be honest we have been to LR. In York n Oxford. And the pretentious clowns on Deansgate Should try Oxford. That would be a eye opener !!

Went to the Living Room last Friday for dinner after shopping. Relaxed atmosphere in the upstairs dining area with the sound of the live music filtering through. Good selection of food on the menu at reasonable prices an overall good choice. Will definitely return

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.

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 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
