Very nice meal. Lovely setting.
Excellent food and efficient service
Faultless food and service, coupled with a great show, and easy parking. Can't wait to go back.
A great start to a lovely evening, Dusty was a great show. The chance to come back at the interval to have desert and coffee is brilliant, meant we didn't feel too stuffed. Really enjoyed the view across the canal. The service was excellent, the waitresses were attentive and made sure we were well served. Will definitely repeat the experience.
Not happy with the automatic service charge.
Inappropriate pot for pear compot and it was rusty. Tables too close together and very noisy. Pudding menu limited.
We will always eat at the Pier Eight Restaurant before any show that we book at the Lowry Theatre and have recommended it to our family & friends Food always been good and now the service is much improved, staff very attentive, well done.

Fabulous well recommended
Great service and a lovely meal thanks
Amazing evening - fabulous food staff and service
Thoroughly recommend, we had a wonderful meal before going into the theatre. Made for a truly wonderful evening.
An excellent start to a great evenings entertainment
I hadn't expected food of this quality. It proved excellent value, beautifully presented and the service was pleasant and efficient. Friends joined us towards the end of the meal and, for our comfort and the peace of diners at nearby tables, we were politely and smoothly moved to a large booth. My only caveat is that a friend joining us found it difficult to find a gluten-free option for a light pre-theatre snack, but the rest of us were very pleased with our choices and would definitely return.
We got caught in traffic and we’re going to be 15minutes late so rang ahead and the chap was extremely helpful and basically it would be ok and it was. Would also like to add that we were served by a tall lady who I think was called Rose, she was great with a lovely sense of humour, great start to the evening.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough
Great time had by all. We weren't the most organised group but staff copied with or changes wonderfully and in good spirits. Nothing was too much trouble making our evening all the better. Thank you!
Brad the waiter was really excellent- informed, intelligent and industrious. He was there at the drop of a hat and couldn’t do enough. The food was absolutely delicious as well.
Food was excellent
