Wonderful evening meal and breakfast. Great food and efficient friendly service.
Lovely time had by both my friend and I. The vanilla cheesecake was to die for!!! 🤙😀
We experienced issues with the food some of which was not hot enough. Had to wait for a guest meal as it wasn't ready with the rest of the food. Staff brought out the vegetables and potatoes prior whilst he waited for his main course. No hot dessert on the menu. The staff serving where tremendous.
Thank you for making my birth celebration a amazing night amazing food and service would definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back.
Asked the manager for a small favour re: Cloud23 and he sorted it out for me which rounded off a lovely night.
The staff were helpful &!the food was beautiful. We had an evening meal on 2 evenings the food was served quickly it was tasty, hot and well presented. Breakfast was self service with a wide variety of cereals, toasts, breads, pastries, fruits and full English there was even a pancake machine. There was a wide selection of fruit juices. Tea & coffee was served at your table. Couldn’t have asked for more.
The service was great, the food was delicious and the added touch of a beautiful plate decorated and congratulating us on our retirements was so lovely. Thank you!
Party for the wife’s birthday. We had an excellent time and the food was lovely. Drinks were a little pricey but it was a special occasion. Would definitely recommend.
Good food,excellent service by friendly staff
Excellent meal. Excellent service
The food for 3 of us was very good but my wife was violently sick when we arrived home last night, and has been very sick all day. All 4 of us dining had the steak for our main course but my wife had the duck starter so I’m assuming it was this that has made her sick. The waiter (an Italian man) was an absolute credit to the restaurant, probably the best waiter that we have come across & 3 of us currently Work in hotels in F&B management. He really went above & beyond, very attentive but not overbearing. I would have given another star for the food apart from my wife’s experience with the sickness.
The breakfast staff could not have looked after us better. The breakfast is one of the best I have had, especially in Manchester. We will return
We used a groupon thoroughly great value meal amazing
We had a fantastic evening. The food and service was first class
The food and atmosphere was great and service very good. Overall Bubbles and Beef option excellent value. However, the advertising for the Bubbles and Beef deal did not make it totally clear that there would be only beef options for the mains and one of our party did not eat beef. The on line menus all have other options. It was a bit awkward for a while as one of the waiters was insisting we go a la carte and pay full price for the Prosecco. Finally someone decided we could have one meal as falafel and still use the deal. This sorted everything out, but could have been avoided or handled a little smoother. I would recommend going back again, but would be careful to check the offers in future.
It was very good value for money. Good that you were given a choice of drinks.
The service was Excellent the food good and the glass of wine lovely value for money could not falt it👍👌
Food and service were both excellent. They couldn’t do enough for us and made it a most enjoyable experience
staff very friendly and accommodating, our taxi didnt how up so we were 30 mins late for the reservation but the staff extended the validity of our voucher so we didnt miss out.
The staff were lovely and the surroundings as well. We came for the fish and chips lunch as a Groupon gift I received for my birthday. The fish and mushy peas and tartare sauce were very nice. However we were puzzled why the small portion of chips were appearing burnt, re fried and not crisp. Guests would have enjoyed chips from high quality traditional chip shops much more eg Fosters in Didsbury or many other local chippies.
Very enjoyable experience at the Podium Restaurant. The service was excellent . The food was very good quality and superbly cooked. We enjoyed all the courses and would recommend the experience to other diners.
What a great evening! Being a Monday early evening it was quite quiet but it was a super experience, with fantastic attention from our waiter and lovely food and drink. We were a little surprised that the menu we'd seen online wasn't the same menu that we were given in the restaurant but this didn't spoil the occasion. Thank you for a good dining experience.
It was really cold in the restaurant and this made the evening rubbish as we rushed our meal to get out of there. We both had belly pork which we felt was under cooked as the fat was really chewy and not tender. I was looking forward to it being crispy. Great staff though.
On a very cold March evening the restaurant was quite chilly. The lobby is open and cold, the cold air blows through ti the restaurant. Everything else was superb will return when weather is warmer.
Excellent service and very pleasant and polite staff. The food was very good.
