We went for my daughter’s 21st birthday celebration. The food was amazing with very attentive service from the waiters assigned to us. We all really enjoyed the experience.
First meal out of the year a few friends have mentioned how good this place was and i was not disappointed and most importantly the missus was HAPPY loved it.
Great atmosphere (we dined on a Saturday night). The food was delicious and the service great, but what set it apart was the spectacular roof terrace and the panoramic view of Manchester
The service was exceptional in this restaurant, never waited for our wine to be topped up. Attentive but not to invasive. Food excellent and atmosphere was perfect for our Saturday evening dinner reservation.
I can't fault anything, superb restaurant!
More style than substance
Mainly geared towards 20 and 30 somethings , who want to be seen and hang around the bar area
Better places to eat in Manchester , overpriced especially the booze !
Won’t recommend or return
Food was absolutely spot on, from the starters to the sides on the mains. Couldn’t fault it if I tried, rarely write reviews but thought it deserved one. Service was very attentive, topping up glasses without prompting etc. Was a last minute decision to come here after wanting to for some time, probably couldn’t have picked a better place! Will be back to try the bar/terrace in the summer (just stayed in the restaurant). Thanks for a good night!
The reception from the hostess was not the most friendly, where despite asking to be seated at a table close to the window, she decided to sit us at a table for four pretty afar. Our waiter helped us getting relocated into our desired table. Apart from that, our experience was superb.
Service was outstanding!
We had great Brunch and the cocktails were fantastic! A gorgeous afternoon in perfect surroundings. We’ll definitely be back for lunch and dinner!!
Out with special friends
Really enjoyed the food, service could have been better. Had to wait a while for a drinks menu, and for drinks to arrive.
After all the hype of the food was disappointing cold plates my steak came out cold , great bar and terrace but food very mediocre .
Brilliant, great food, attentive staff and amazing view. Loved it
The food was great! The service was amazing! Great view of the city
Lovely food. Building is amazing. Views are fabulous. Give it a try.
The manager had really bad attitude which was disrespectful. The waiters are all really friendly and the view was amazing.
It was my birthday but it didn’t feel like it. Usually restaurant at least bring a little cake or something. Music was very loud so you could hardly speak to each other’s. In my opinion it’s more of a bar experience rather then fine dining.
Seems to have gone downhill a little bit, didn’t feel as special as it used to in terms of food selection/quality and service
First time here, great food and fabulous service, along with the outstanding views - we will most certainly be back!
the first time I went was for lunch and it was totally outstanding. We went again on Saturday night with 2 friends on our strong recommendation. We had a booth which was very good for 4 of us. Our waiter did a hard sell (in a very nice way) on the scallops with rissotto for starters which 3 of us had (most expensive thing on the starer menu at £16) ... gorgeous taste but not the big fat scallops he'd promised us so a tad disappointing. Me and my husband then had the Pork 3 way sharing plate (again with a strong push from the waiter) at £55. The belly pork was good, chops were just chops and pig cheeks small on mash potato (not much of it) so any sauce with them was absorbed by the mash . Main problem was there was no sauce so the whole thing was very dry and crying out for a gravy. The accompanying smoked apple sauce was very sweet and again not much for 2 -it certainly didn't compensate for no gravy. I asked for some sauce but not came. Vege - tiny portions - was of course extra. Overall very disappointed with our choice for the price especially as it was recommended. In hindsight we'd have been better off with a choice of the main menu . Our friends had a sirloin steak and rib eye. The waiter desperately tried to persuade them to have the 42oz steak which they didn't want but he just kept trying to to the point of annoyance. the steaks they said were lovely but it was a very very expensive steak and chips! Our bill - with 2 bottles of £32 wine and some beer came to £350.00. To my mind it was not a £350 meal! However, my main problem with the experience was the amount of very excited young people - girls in small groups particularly - up and down the restaurant from the terrace bar to the loos loudly taking endless amounts of selfies. The ladies loo (easy to go into the mens by mistake by the way!!) was totally overrun with them. I'm not old and stuffy but it was just too much for a VERY expensive night out and cheapened the experience for all of us.
Perfect place for cocktails and lunch.
Friendly staff that cant do enough for you.
Fantastic atmosphere with amazing views.
Can not recommend this place enough!
Great cocktails. Fabulous view, amazing wine list.
The food was also delicious and service faultless!
I have been to 20 stories a few times and generally find it fine except for the price in particular the Wine list. I generally have Sauvignon Blanc (cloudy bay) and you charge now £69 approx. I buy that at Majestic wines for £19.95 so feel £50 profit is excessive.
My wife and I dine out minimum every saturday and sunday and look forward to the Opening of The IVY next door to you. I have been to these in London and Dublin, the one in Dublin is Fabulous.
Brilliant service and quality wines to match excellent food.
The Food and service was exalent the view from the roof in the late evening was fantastic the price was a little expensive but the food we had was exalent drinks are very expensive compered to other bars in Manchester
Wonderful restaurant with fabulous views. We had the early bird menu which was fantastic followed by drinks on the roof garden.
Great views, attentive service and amazing food.
70th birthday one meal came cold but they a
The restaurant is very well styled and we particularly enjoyed the pre-lunch drink outside. The service was excellent and the food even better. Overall my wife and I couldn't fault 20 Stories and we will be back food
Good food and service, but too busy with noisy fashionistas and somewhat over-priced.
The food was good but not outstanding as the prices would indicate. I thought the 12.5% service charge added to the bill was excessive.
Fab setting! Food was good but service let it down
The food was ok. Very expensive for what we ate and had much better quality food and other places for a lot less money. It is a place people want to be seen at rather than go to eat amazing food
Everything was perfect from beginning to end.
Delightful drinks then a warm bread to wet the appetite!
Food was amazing. Extremely tasty, quick and nice and hot.
Ambience was fabulous. Very busy but a good noise level and didn’t feel too crowded despite the popularity early on a Saturday evening!
Our waiter, Mirco, was fabulous. Very friendly and he could not do more to help us. He had an excellent knowledge of the food and drinks menu and we were extremely impressed by his professionalism and friendless.
Can’t wait to come back! Thank you for a gorgeous memory!
Fabulous service. Good food. Great views. Overpriced menu. Poor starter selection (just trying too hard to be different)
Joint 50ths with some pals. Great ambience. Great food great drinks. Loved it
A great night out with my wife. This restaurant was gorgeous; the staff was friendly; and the food was beyond delicious! The bar staff made some excellent cocktails while the kitchen staff prepared amazing appetisers and one of the best filets I’ve ever had. We will be back!
We shared the Lamb main course with Dauphnoise potatoes and this was very tasty and the vegetables were very nice too - carrots and spinach. The cocktails beforehand were really nice and a great selection. The place is a great place split into two - indoor and open rooftop terrace. both with great views of the city. Its a very friendly and social place and the staff are very attentive and friendly and advise you on drinks and the food. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return :-)
The best food I have ever eaten
Lovely dinner with my boyfriend, food was good and atmosphere was brilliant, very buzzy and a city feel really nice.
