    the décor is amazing with high ceilings and great detailing around the finish. the service is fantastic in line with any already Michelin star awarded restaurant I've been.
    the chefs come out and give detail on the dish about to be eaten along with the service staff with confidence.
    the food itself is great, I cant recommend the desert enough in taste, texture and drama.

    The set menu had some unusual flavours which added to the enjoyment of the meal. Good attentive staff and peaceful surroundings.

    Had a very enjoyable experience. We chose the six course tasting menu with wine flight and the Empire dessert - because it would be rude not to.
    It was my partners birthday and it was a really nice touch to have a birthday card from Adam.
    Loved every single course - the 'tater ash' with brown bread and butter stood out for my partner. The fish was a standout dish for me - but they were all delicious. The chicken brought out by Adam made it all even more special. Great wines, explained well. Fantastic service. Thank you!

    Calm dignified atmosphere and attentive waiters.
    Excellent food. I particilarly liked the asparagus soup with smoked yolk.

  • ((((( 9 July 2018 by Paul from manchester

    Each and every one of the nine courses we received was a gastronomic pleasure.

    The attention to detail in the presentation of each course.

    The short explanation to how the dish was constructed and its ingredients.

    All brought together what was a real memorable dining experience.

    All the staff working together makes Adam Reid at The French the place to go for the next level in fine dining.
