“Super pre-theatre meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We pre-booked the 3 course lunch menu prior to seeing the fabulous Warhorse show, the standard of the food was excellent and service very attentive too. The range of choices on the menu was very good, with 4 starters, 5 mains (a chicken, a lamb, a fish and 2 really interesting vegetarian options) and 3 desserts. The food was cooked perfectly, presented beautifully and the flavour combinations were outstanding. This included a starter of Smoked salmon, horseradish panna cotta, beetroot salad, caper berries and mains of Pan-fried chicken, boulangere potato, Summer cabbage, mushroom fricassée OR Lamb rump, herb sausage, black pudding, sweet potato cake, artichoke puree, garlic jus. We felt the quality of the food was much better than we had expected and offered superb value for money (£22 for 3 quality and delicious courses). If you want a Lowry pre-or post theatre meal we highly recommend the theatre's own restaurant over any of the other Salford Quay eateries!

“Food ok, sommelier should be shot. Pre-theatre elsewhere in future...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

VIP theatre package sounded super, but left rather disappointed...however theatre was great, and overall a super evening. As part of the pre-show dinner, staff were good, and mostly food was ok and certainly out briskly to ensure good timing before curtain. Wine offered as part of package was also on menu, and was absolutely awful and over proves. Ended up swapping and paying difference for a Beaujolais Villages that was OK but ridiculously priced. Massive uplift on the cost of average to poor wine. Rules relating to interval drinks etc not well communicated, so on all think I'd eat elsewhere and watch the show only here. Enjoy the theatre here, but maybe skip the restaurant... Staff pleasant, food ok, bits round edges and especially the atrocious wine marks this down heavily. Eat elsewhere and taxi here just before the show, but pre order drinks tho...

Many thanks for taking the time to review your experience of our VIP Package. We’re disappointed that you were dissatisfied with the wine included in the package. The wine was chosen specifically by our supplier’s Master of Wines, as they are enjoyable with a variety of dishes, we’re sorry they weren’t to your taste on this occasion. Our interval pre-ordering service is very popular with our diners so we’re sorry you experienced issues with this when you dined.

“Very surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

This really surprised me. I had expected a fairly standard level of cuisine from this theatre restaurant but was very pleasantly surprised. The four courses were unusual, all had a little twist and beautifully prepared. Had it part of a VIP package as a treat. Excellent would highly recommend this place. Staff outstanding as well.

“Hard to fault”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Just the place to chow down before taking your place in the Lowry theatre. Service was nicely judged. I had a juicy piece of chicken and my wife sea bass.
