The food was delicious and the service was great. There was little atmosphere as it was a quiet evening, but it didn’t spoil our evening.

Brought to you by one of the UK’s best-loved celebrity chefs, James Martin’s eponymous restaurant is found within the glitzy Manchester235 Casino - showcasing the best in modern British seasonal cooking.
The seasonally-changing menu by James Martin is bursting with produce sourced from tried-and-tested butchers, fishmongers, game dealers, farmers and cheesemakers. Signature flavours might include Thai crab risotto, or coffee-crusted venison loin. Imaginative twists for dessert include white chocolate & whisky croissant pudding, or apple crumble soufflé. Traditional Sunday roasts with all the trimmings are also a firm favourite.
Perfectly matched to the menu, the wine list at James Martin in Manchester features old and New World bins, and experimental mixes are served at the adjoining Vega Lounge cocktail bar.
This classic British restaurant is set on its own mezzanine level, with edgy Great-Northern-warehouse styling including vintage fabrics and artwork, polished girders and exposed brickwork. Find restaurant James Martin just 3 minutes’ walk from Deansgate Train Station. Please note, guests must be aged 18 or over.

Great experience well trained staff really on the ball with my wife’s coeliac with only very slight differences she could enjoy the same meal as me this is not always the case

For the second time, we dined on the set menu with matching wines. Excellent value and quality. The Thai Crab Risotto was the highlight, closely followed by the Rhubarb Panna Cotta. Excellent service. Will definitely be back

We had the 5 course Tasting Menu with matching wines. Every dish was beautifully served with the matching wine and a really informative description was provided by the server. The service was fabulous. I got to try things that I would never have chosen, but now would not hesitate to order. The restaurant itself is in a Casino & I've got to admit that I was a little apprehensive on arrival,l however I needn't have worried as the restaurant itself is lovely. We had a fab table by a window. It wasn't quite ready when we arrived so went to the bar & were pleasantly surprised that they serve 2 for 1 cocktails between 4pm & 8pm daily. They were really good too! I can't wait to go back & try some other fab meals & cocktails.

Fantastic food and service from our waitress. We weren’t rushed between courses. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable experience

Fantastic meal in interesting surroundings. Attentive service and loved the informative talks about each dish and accompanying wine. We upgraded to the superior wine flight and it was worth every penny - I would definitely book the tasting menu (especially when it's on offer at £30 per head including wine with each course) again - highly recommended.

Very informal atmosphere and felt strange walking through the Casino to reach restaurant. Staff friendly and well trained. Food was fabulous especially Thai crab risotto and chicken. Would highly recommend.

Excellent tasting menu, no dishes disappointed and the service was friendly, not rushed but not too slow either.

The food was average at best, but the location, above a noisy casino with a terrible covers band playing was very unpleasant. The waitress was lovely but her manager was rude (to her, not us), telling her what to do, ie pour wine quicker. Having worked in restaurants I felt sorry for her having to work in those conditions.

Great evening with friends spent here. Booked the tasting menu with matching wines offer and it was fantastic. Loved all courses and we added on the cheese board. Everything was cooked to perfection with wonderful service. Loved the ox cheek and the matching Merlot was perfect. Will definitely book this offer again (Sunday lunch is also great).
