We've been here a few times to eat, a couple of times for Sunday lunch which is one of the best I've ever had, including generous portions! A beautiful first floor restaurant with tables next to floor to ceiling windows with views over Media City. The service is faultless, very friendly and efficient staff. The food is delicious, the desserts... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant a couple of times over the last week whilst in MediaCity for a concert series. On our first visit we tried the fixed price lunch and for the second the a la carte. By any measure this restaurant scores highly - the room is comfortable, attractive and bright, service is smooth and efficient,... More

Good food and good service i may have built my hopes a little after reading reviews and doing lots of research on the restaurant beforehand. I was a little disappointed that the fillet steak which is advertised on the menu online was replaced with a ribeye. I am not a great lover of ribeye but thought i would go for... More

We had a pre theatre meal here so the restaurant was busy but not full. This restaurant beats all the local competition hands down and many of the 'fine dining' restaurants in Manchester as well. The menu is imaginative without going over the top and there is also a good selection of vegetarian dishes which is a plus. The dishes... More

I ate here following the recommendation of a friend. He was right to recommend it! We both had the rabbit starter and it was really tasty. I had a duck main and my partner had steak. Both were the best meals we remember tasting. The service was faultless, prompt, and professional. There was nothing that I would change about our... More

Beautiful food, excellent wine selection and friendly, attentive staff. Set Sunday menus can generally be a bit off-putting but the one at Damson offered superb choice. The steak tartare starter was incredible.

I booked Damson for my partners birthday meal for the family. From the first email I sent asking about the options for cake etc..the staff were prompt in replying and so helpful. One of the best places for service I've been to in a long time. The restaurant is gorgeous and has such a nice atmosphere and isn't loud and... More

We had dinner here last Saturday with two other couples - a giddy combination of old friends and the staff made us very welcome for a memorable night. The food is quite sophisticated and an extensive wine list makes this a quality dining experience - at a price though.
