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.

    Despite being empty I didn't get the table I asked for. The restaurant was very cold as was the main courses. Staff were incredibly attentive. This was a special occasion, and we did expect better.

    It’s been some years since my last visit and all change from - separate restaurant and brasserie to all brasserie. We booked our table for 5.30pm on a Saturday and was shown straight to our table. The new format works and great atmosphere throughout. Usual fantastic service that you expect from HN, and the food was good quality, great flavours and very good value for money. We had the 3 course and cocktail deal. Our kids who are a bit fussy were well catered for and our daughter had a plain burger which she commented “it was the best she had ever had”. Will no doubt return soon.

    Service varied between good and ok. We felt slightly 'in the day's towards the end of the meal, as staff were tidying up for the evening, our booking was at 7 , so assume they planned to close early! As far as the food was concerned the food was very good and the offer excellent.
