Had one breakfast and dinner here and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food ,this is simply not your ordinary hotel chain restaurant. The selection at breakfast was great for both continental and full english. Meanwhile for dinner i ordered a steak which turned...out to be one of the best i have ever tried. I was served by Ruben and lexe (or lexi) and they were a delight. The ambience of this place is fantastic as well. If you are around this area or staying in the hotels above , this place is not to be missed.More

Pre show meet and dinner, venue recommended. Location and restaurant very well presented and the staff were most excellent. We were offered menus from each restaurant and the current Mrs T and I chose Steak Frite. Our friend chose the salmon. I take steak cooked...as Chef recommends and it came rare, she had hers well done and the salmon came medium. Hmmm, arrived but lacking the tomato accompaniment which was resolved but the tomato had suffered a nasty demise ;-) Problem started when I tried to cut my steak..... I couldn’t. Managed a bite, very chewy, next mouthful couldn’t be chewed at all so it sadly went back. Mrs T’s steak was OK apart from being overcooked for my taste. Our friend’s salmon was most excellent btw. To be fair, I was offered an alternative but we were out of time, the steak was comped off and an apology profusely offered. The customer service was great, maybe they just were unlucky and got a rogue steak but at an establishment like this, I would hope that quality control on supply would be much better.More

This restaurant is part of the Crowne Plaza hotel near the Manchester Uni campus so I was somewhat surprised to find such a great restaurant in a mid range hotel. The food is excellent; whitebait starters which came as a generous portion with yummy siracha...mayonnaise dip. Main course was roast poussin with chunky chips. Other menu options were pizzas, risotto, steaks and some vegetarian choices. Overall the quality was excellent and prices no different to similar standard of restaurant. The service was very friendly and attentive. A great find in an area lacking in decent restaurants (one would otherwise need to go into the city centre).More

This year for my birthday I decided to have dinner with some friends at the Laureate and it was the best choice to celebrate this day. I spent a very lovely night with tasty and different food. Me and my friends ordered from Italian meal...like pizza or gnocchi to oriental meal like sushi ( in my opinion amazing!). Moreover a very kind and available staff. A special thanks to Ruben, Nikolay, Irene and Campbell to satisfy every our request and to make feel every guest special.More

Can order from the Restaurant menu or the menu from The Graduate bar as they're the same kitchen. Food was nice and tasty. Dietary requirements were no problem at all. Could do with being a bit less posh and a bit more hearty with portions...in order to provide better value for money. Not that it wasn't. It's just there's so many eating places around that area that unless you're staying in the hotel and want somewhere convenient to eat it's likely that people will go somewhere in the surroundings that is less expensive. Which is a shame because the service and the food are really great!More

It was one of the best service places I stayed at! Amazing. We were served by Ruben and Campbell on two different occasions and they went out of their way to make our trip memorable. The food at the restaurant was also divine- I had...the Laksa curry which is so hard to do right and was great and my colleague had the pizza (which was made fresh by their Italian chef). Curtis their chef has really tried hard to bring some interesting and delightful flavours on the menu. The food was one of my highlights of the tripMore

I know you typically want to know how good the food is at a restaurant and everyone at our table loved what they got. My fish and chips were amazing. What really stands out, though, about our visit (we were there for 4 days for...a conference) was the kindness and attentiveness of the staff. John, Rubin, Campbell, and Elizabeth took great care of us! We will definitely return when we're back in Manchester.More
