I really enjoyed our meal.The staff were fabulous and they All made the night feel like it was a special occasion as they were very attentive without being intrusive. The meal was wonderful and I will most certainly be going back and recommending it to others.

We had a lovely meal at the City Cafe in the Hilton Hotel in Manchester on Saturday night. The food was lovely, the staff very friendly. We tried a Brizillian red wine which we had not had before and it was good. The meal was good value with 50% of the food. We will certainly go back again.

The TT deal at City Cafe was fantastic value for such a high quality meal, served professionally in a modern but comfortable environment. Would definitely recommend.

Lovley restaurant, brilliant staff

City Cafe (Manchester) was a surprise gem of a restaurant. My initial scepticism was proven to be totally unfounded. The food was excellent quality; even simple dishes (such as the leek and potato soup) were made with a unique twist - it is clear that there are some very talented cooks in the kitchen. The quality of the food was matched by the service, which was the best I have ever received. If I ever return to Manchester, this is a place I will definitely return to.

Went to City Cafe, Manchester on a Saturday night. This is a fantastic deal, and the food was much better than expected aswell. The food was nearly as good as Michael Caines over the road.

I had a fantastic experience dining at this restaurant, the service was wonderful and the food was brilliant. The staff could not have been more helpful.

City Cafe and Bar Manchester Fantastic! Excellent service and food. Great atmosphere, cannot fault it.

great offer gin, vodka or bacardi for arriva drink great 3 course deal with wine well worth it, good staff very professional and attentive

Good food but a little bit expensive for what it was we thought

City cafe Manchester. A great place for a birthday meal or special occasion. The special £25 for three courses meal deal plus wine and a welcoming drink is fantastic value. Staff are efficient as well.

City Cafe, Manchester overall was a great experience! The standard of the food was excellent, the scallop raviolli was scrummy and the seabass and trout mains were also very tasty. Service was okay, nothing special but good. The only thing which was a little flat was the ambience, nice venue just felt a little sterile.

The Early Dining Offer (two courses from the Market menu with a glass of wine) at the City Café in Manchester is exceptionally good value. The menu offers an excellent choice of dishes, such as mackerel with rhubarb jelly, sea bream on a bed of couscous, or belly pork with shallots. These come perefectly cooked and beautifully presented. The service is attentive without being ostentatious. We will definitely return next time we are in Manchester.

Thoroughly good food and the champagne was just terrific. But the waitress was a gem. Professional and charming. Will go again.

We were served a couple of extra treats !

Excellent! lovely food, the £25 deal was well worth it, cocktails on arrival were delicious, the bar area is lovely. Shame it was bit quiet, but it was a Tuesday.

City Cafe Manchester. Staff were very attentive and even gave us a complimentary per-starter when they were out of one the options on the menu. Good value for money and would go again.

City Café, Restaurant and Bar... EXCELLENT! Great value wine and dine deal with arrival drink. Each course was delicious, a good choice for a small set menu. Service was good and the ambience was spot on. City Café remains one of my Manchester city centre all round faves. :)
