Great service. Opulent location. 9 course taster menu was uniformly excellent. Best dish was between the almond poached cod and the tater ‘ash. The Cumbrian red deer was the least favourite. The easy peeler dessert was stunning in taste and presentation.

    Fantastic evening, terrific food, wonderfully attentive but not overbearing staff. Lovely decor and a great atmosphere.

    There's only one way to describe the food, wine or whole experience, amazing! The music was a nice unexpected surprise, it really created the right ambiance at the chefs counter. Thoroughly recommended.

    Adam Reid at the French provided an excellent dining experience to catch up with an old friend. Having looked for to the prospect of dining at the French for several years, neither of us were disappointed. Outstanding cuisine with a well thought out flight of wines to match. Good honest flavours with a hint of northern soul. Get in quick before the restaurant gets starred!

    Hands down the best restaurant in Manchester and has been since it opened. How Michelin have failed to award Adam Reid at the French at least a star is utterly beyond me. I've eaten worse meals at Michelin two star restaurants!!!

    The restaurant is small and therefore more intimate than I had expected. The food was very good (not 'out of this world' good but very acceptable). The wines chosen for each course were interesting and nicely varied but also complimentary to the food. The waiting staff, especially the wine waiter, were excellent and provided a useful and interesting commentary to the meal without becoming intrusive. The cod was superb and the ginger & cream dessert was a very nice finale. It was a lovely evening n very pleasant surroundings.

    Had a superb 6 course taster lunch. The food was truly amazing especially the Tatar’ash and the red deer. The desert left us licking the bowl. We didn’t order the accompanying wines but ordered from the cocktail menu. We thought this was a bit too expensive. Other than that had an absolutely amazing experience.
