    Excellent service, gorgeous food, much more than we expected. We had the 2019 Great British Menu, and the wad amazing. The star of the day was the starter. Highly recommend, and we will be back.

    I visit this resturant every year for our wedding aniversary. It's not disapointed so far and we always enjoy our experience. Fingers crossed Manchester finally achieves a Michelin star restuarant and the French should be the one to get it!

    From start to finish, dining at The French was amazing. The restaurant interior harks back to a grandeur of times gone by with an ornate interior, the likes of which are never seen anymore. The taster menu was quite possibly the best meal my friend and I have ever had. Every course was exceptional! Even the beef butter blew our minds... The best dining experience we’ve ever had!!!!

    An excellent overall experience from arriving to leaving. Nothing was too much trouble. The pre meal drinks were delicious (my wife had the non alcoholic elderflower which looked and tasted fabulous). Each course was very expertly explained on its arrival. The balance of food was superb and beautifully cooked, presented and served. There was nothing negative to make a comment about we left feeling we had had a very satisfying time.

    The entire dining experience was nothing short of exceptional. We had wanted to try the GBM menu since it first launched as we are such big fans of the show and it certainly did not disappoint. Food was sublime (the chicken in particular if I had to pick a favourite!), the knowledge and friendly manner of the chefs and front of house team was superb and the restaurant itself is ambient and beautifully designed. Temperature was just right too!

    Lovely venue with a good ambience. All the staff from receptionist to servers, young chefs and the wine waiter were attentive and excellent. We had the signature menu with wine flight to celebrate a special occasion. It is very expensive but worth the money as each course was brilliant enhanced by superb accompanying wines. The two desserts were amazing. Should have a Michelin star !
