Restaurant description

The Second Floor Bar and Brasserie offers a relaxed yet stylish environment in which to enjoy all-day dining, overlooking the expansive views of Exchange Square. This elevated spot offers views over the city, and a black lacquered bar offers a fashionable selection.

A diverse mix of flavours, the Harvey Nichols menu spans from eclectic ‘little plates’ and wholesome bento boxes, to classic main courses. An array of exciting flavours can be found in the likes of tandoori monkfish with sticky mango rice, or pea and mint cannelloni with smoked feta, whilst hearty classics include a succulent signature HN burger, or Atlantic-caught cod with chunky chips.

Innovative twists for dessert include a salted caramel pot au chocolat with hazelnut shortbread, and Vimto summer pudding with clotted cream. Chic and sultry seasonal cocktails are served at the Second Floor Bar, and delicious offerings for brunch include streaky bacon and maple syrup waffles, and classic eggs benedict.

Set in one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, Harvey Nichols Brasserie is a 6-minute walk from Manchester Victoria Rail Station.

    Winter dining menu starters and mains delicious. My friend and I had the baked Alaska for dessert and it wasn’t good. Extremely sweet and sickly - not to be recommended. We noticed other people had not finished theirs.

    I’ve dined here several times and it never fails to deliver delicious and delightful dishes. I love being able to view the skyscape and watch the evening draw in over the city. Waiting staff are friendly and provide excellent service.

    We were offered a seat at the window for those great views across the centre - not always offered by some restaurants when on a deal. I didn't have a starter; however, I was offered my mains at the same time as my friend's starter - never been asked that before - which was great. Food was tasty and not over-facing; I always have to leave food at restaurants because they serve way too much. The gin cocktail was excellent, as was the attentive and friendly service. Go there, you won't be disappointed!
