Diner Reviews - Only diners who have booked and dined can write a review

really impressive. Had a delightful waitress who was very knowledgable and very attentive without being a pain. The Food was excellent, I will be returning to Northern Quarter very soon.

Came here with a large party on a Saturday night. We had pre-ordered and the food was good given the numbers they had to get out at the same time.

Excellent staff. Very friendly, attentive and courteous.

The Northern Quarter Manchester. What a lovely place. Very ordinary but smashing food and excellent service. We enjoyed the meal, and the wine, and read the paper (talked too, of course!). Great.

Went to TNQ in Manchester for Valentine's Day. This is one of our favourite restaurants and the value for money for the quality of the food you get is always great.

Valentine's Day is always a night when you expect lower quality food and table turning, but there was none of that in TNQ. The food was as excellent as always, with the pork belly starter being particularly good. The service is sometimes a little 'too' relaxed in TNQ, but it was attentive and detailed on this occasion.

We had a very pleasant time at The Northern Quarter. We had a very late booking, but were greeted very warmly. We skipped starters, to leave room for the desert. Because we were the last bookings, some dishes were no longer available. The main courses were really good and tasty, accompanied by a descent Rioja. The desert we shared was fantastic. Very well presented and superb. The cherry on the cake however was the service; everything was done with efficiency and a smile. Excellent!!

Had a great time at The Northern Quarter in Manchester last week - great service and a really relaxed atmosphere.

We visited the Northern quarter restaurant in Manchester city centre at 1830 on a Saturday night. The welcome by the staff was fantastic and my partner and I were very well accommodated all night. The food choice was good with a choice from 2 menus. The quality of the food was fantastic. Overall value for money was also very good and would rate this 9/10. We will be returning in the future.

Was impressed by the good food and great service. Lovely bottle of reasonably priced Pinotage too. Was also impressed by how graciously the staff dealt with a franly insane man on an adjacent table who repeatedly sent his food back and accused the chef of 'laughing at him' .

The Northern Quarter - Manchester

Food was great and presented beautifully. Waitress was absolutely great as well. Mix up with drinks at beginning of meal saw us get a free glass of champagne each, which was a nice touch.

There's just something missing for the price of it all. The whole experience just doesn't feel traditional, different or special enough to justify paying £20 for a main course.

Sorry, not so good. A shame as we were looking forward to it. Average food - not much better than pub grub - but at high end prices (up to £20 for a main, £75 bill for 2 course, 1 drink each).

There are much better to eat in Manchester

Not the cheapest place in manchester but the food is excellent. The wine list looks like Bibendum sourced which is great but could be more informative (e.g. show years).

Good but not special.

The food was very good and well presented. However, the service wasn't that great. The restaurant manager was friendly and efficient but the two other members of staff weren't really all that bothered. When we first arrived, there was a wait to be noticed and eventually our table was pointed out across the length of the restaurant, instead of being taken to it.

The Northern Quarter, Manchester. Small but cosy restaurant, very busy and a bit noisy, but that was probably the sound of people enjoying themselves. I had the roast lamb which was delicious, although informed that it would be cooked pink, it wasn't, pity. I could have done with more potato, but had the option to order some extra as a side dish, will do that next time. My wife had the smoked haddock and is still raving about it, particularly the potato cake. Great experience.

We visited The Northern Quarter on a busy Saturday lunchtime. The service was friendly and attentive, the lunch menu was excellent value, and the food was beautifully cooked and presented, the Sea Bass was especially good.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a more relaxed experience but still with top quality food.

Had a lovely Saturday evening at TNQ. The restaurant was busy but the service from the staff was very good. We started with the summer soup and it was delicious and flavoursome. The fish main course again delicious and the cheese and dessert wine to finish excellent. Will definitely go again for lunch as the 'lunch special' looked very good value.

Enjoyable, and very tasty dinner. Our waitress was very polite, and knew the specials. Service took a little while to get going, but once ordered it wasn't long before the food arrived. Everyone enjoyed the meal, and the only two issues were that the price was a little inflated for what was presented, and it was very warm in there.

The Northern Quarter, Manchester. Top quality food across the board let down by a badly timed kitchen (starters arrived too soon after aperitif, mains arrived immediately after starters, side order not until half way through meal) and half hearted service (served by 4 different waiters, forgot the wine glasses for the wine, forgot to offer desserts or coffee, cutlery sticking to the table). Real shame that the service clouded the clever menu and excellent food.

Northern Quarter, Manchester...

Food was fantastic, especially the suckling pig ragu and chocolate and orange mousse. Lively atmosphere with lots of bars around, so good place for a night out

The Northern Quarter, Manchester Food and service excellent. Would definitely recommend the crab and avocado starter, and the plaice main course. Nice airy restuarant with a chilled out atmosphere. Only one toilet for the ladies so there was always a short queue!
