Description: The dramatically glamorous surroundings of Opus One are a sharp riposte to the Italianate façade of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester in which it is situated. An extravaganza of red chandeliers, glossy black woodwork and antique gold wall hangings give this striking central Manchester restaurant a bold, vibrant ambience. Cuisine is fittingly modern British, with locally sourced produce dressed up in excitingly eclectic flavours.

Had a few cocktails before heading out to a party. They were really nice and averagely priced for a city centre bar. The staff were friendly and always around to top up when needed. There was a nice chilled out atmosphere.

Thank Nicnjohn

Champagne,Crab sald, amazing pate, scallops, pigeon breast, duo of pork,scallops..... mango tarte , a cocktail, need I go on? From the moment we entered through the door & made ourselves known to the smiling manageress who was told it was my husband's surprise OPUS EXPERIENCE dinner, everything was superb.Our waiter Ben Stokes was charming, friendly & explained any food queries on the menu.My daughter had given the manageress a sugar paste Superman to go on the petit fours dish & they placed it on a superb large chocolate brownie & with chocolate wrote "Happy Birthday" on the plate. It was a charming attention to detail.We were invited to transfer to the glassed frontage to sit on sofas for our cocktail and cofee with macaroons.It was a superb dinner & the service was attentive & professional.Have been here for afternoon tea with elderly relatives and "girlie catch-ups" plus a massage (gift from daughter) but never a meal.Well done Opus One staff & the Chef!

Had a 'classic' and 'gentleman's afternoon tea.' Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. We asked for second helping of scones and they were hot out of the oven. Would highly recommend.
