    Everything was lovely except for the noise level. The music was loud and all the surfaces were hard which gave a noisy atmosphere. Everyone was having to talk loudly and then, even as a couple, it was a shouty conversation we had to have and not at all relaxing..

    Enjoyed the experience. Had the set menu. Food was good but main course portion was much smaller than usual. Would rather pay more for a decent size portion. Brought this up with the waitress who dealt with it well. Will return as lovely decor, service and ambiance.

    Could not be moved inside despite the cold weather, our mains were late arriving because they lost our order in the kitchen. The fillet medallions were not what was expected and the cheese pie was tiny! More like a round pasty than a pie! Dessert took a while too. The food tasted good and We have been to Alberts shed loads of times but last night was disappointing! They adjusted some of our bill as compensation but would rather have not had the problems in the first place.

    First time experience at Albert’s shed, overall not bad but not in the same league as other Manchester eateries The Ivy, Hawksmoor or 20 stories. The staff were scruffy, preoccupied and inattentive. The toilets dirty and shoddy (little details like missing grout) horrible dusty plastic plants. overall 4/10, won’t be rushing back.

    Had a great meal last night (3rd December 2022) atmosphere was vibey and pleasantly busy. The service was perfect with lots of attentive and friendly staff. As a veggie, I loved the menu choices and I noticed a good selection for vegans too. All our party enjoyed the food and drinks, there was a great selection of cocktails with some excellent winter/festive specials to choose from

    The 2 members of staff that we had the most contact with were great, 1 was obviously a fairly long standing member of staff who had a great deal of knowledge about her place of work and freely provided information on the menu. It was the second lady's first day, but you couldn't tell! I got the impression that she must have worked in a restaurant environment before. Their presence and interaction with us made our meal all the more enjoyable. Thankyou.
