Amazing food and service. Portions not huge but tasty interesting combinations of ingredients. Price over £20 per main is ok.

A shocking afternoon tea from start to finish
- A very poor greeting
- on arrival was sat on a poor table near were staff waited away from the few people and no view so we moved
-20 mins before a drink ordered then drinks came after a long wait at same time as food
- asked for a simple cheese sandwiches only for one of guests and was given 1 and rest all smoked salmon etc which I’d explained was not what she ate
- no jam or cream for scones had to ask
- no hot drinks offered
- over £150 for afternoon tea which was poor
- after contacting Gotham via inbox on social media the read and ignored for days the I remessaged and a little later the asked for my contact details and guess what a week later no contact
The Ivy is much better value,atmosphere, service

We had a nice meal at the restaurant which was quietish - about 4 tables occupied on a Saturday night. But we were very disappointed that we weren’t able to go to the bar for a drink before or after dinner even though we’d paid £220 for a dinner at Hotel Gotham it felt like we were treated like second class customers. The food and wine were very good and it was only the service that let things down.

I booked afternoon tea for me and my sister as a birthday treat. It was amazing. The food was delicious, service lovely. The only little criticism, the ham sandwich was a bit hard, but still was delicious. Will definitely come back again.

First time at this venue and I am afraid to say I was a little disappointed. Food was only OK, but my beef blade was very chewy and I could not eat all of it as a result. Service was good, but we felt we were ripped off by the Sommelier as his highly recommended Dom Perignon aperitif turned out to be £45 per glass which we did not find out until afterwards! Our fault, we should have asked, but still £90 for two small glasses of Dome Perignon did leave us with a sour taste. Not sure I'd go back there.

The afternoon tea was lovely, however, there wasn’t a lot of it compared to other places I’ve dined at...
also, I didn’t appreciate the 10% service charge , like the afternoon tea wasn’t pricey enough

However all in all it was lovely
Thank you

Good food and service but the wine list was very expensive. One bottle for £30 before rising rapidly up into the hundreds of pounds. We ordered the £30 red which I didn’t think was great...maybe what you’d pay less than £5 for in the supermarket. I commented that it was a little too sharp and was advised that whilst the sommelier really liked the plumb and black currant notes and thought it a good wine, it couldn’t be great because it was so much cheaper than the other wines. Seemed like a silly approach in my opinion! Otherwise, we did enjoy the food and had a lovely evening.

My wife and I had booked Honey for her birthday, the whole experience was excellent, great service from all the staff who were very courteous & extremely knowledgeable about the food and drink they were serving, which was all excellent, the restaurant itself was very tastefully decorated with great views of Manchester.
We went up to Bar Brass after our meal for cocktails, and the great service we received in Honey was replicated in the bar.
We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Absolutely beautiful meal and service was impeccable. Went for my fiancé’s 40th birthday. The only let down was when I booked the meal I was asked if we were celebrating anything special. I told them we were going there for my fiancé’s 40th but this was never mentioned when we had our meal? I presumed they may do something special for us? Other than that though the place and food and service was excellent.

We celebrated our friends wedding on Saturday with a lovely dinner and fabulous cocktails. The staff were friendly and helpful and made it a special evening. One small improvement would be a pianist. Why have a baby grand and not use it?

Good window table. Service was efficient. Food nothing special. Fruit scones turned out to be plain . Disappointed that earl grey tea was not available. Not happy that a bottle of water was £5. Not a lot of atmosphere . Tables were empty. Could do better.

Lovely building. Staff very pleasant. A little slow and unfortunately had to ask for our tea albeit we were there for afternoon tea. Out of the kindness of the manager we were allowed on the roof terrace which was a little disappointing.

Visited Hotel Gotham for afternoon tea. What a fabulous experience from moment of arrival. We were met by Sean at reception who took us up to 6th floor. Sean was so professional and friendly and made you feel at ease immediately. All the staff at the Hotel were first class - this hotel has it just right. Afternoon tea was delicious- as was the champagne. I can’t wait to return - a wonderful experience - very special.
Would highly recommend.

I loved the gentleman who greeted us as we entered the hotel. He looked so authentic and made us feel really welcome. Walking into Honey literally takes your breath away - the decor is outstanding and the views across Manchester are amazing. We had afternoon tea with champagne and it was excellent. The food was plentiful, the choice of teas mind boggling and the champagne was perfect. We had the best service from Antonio and the team around we’re on hand to help when he was serving elsewhere. It was just fabulous.

Had a lovely Champagne afternoon tea for my friends 60th birthday.
Food was well presented and delicious, especially the GF option.
Thought the afternoon tea was good value.
We ordered an extra bottle of Champagne at the cost of £75 and was surprised that we did not receive a clean glass with the new bottle. Wondered if this was the same we had in the previous glass.
As we were there for my friends birthday we did not mention this at the time.
We also were not going to pay the service charge which a lot of restaurants seem to pop in at the end of the bill.
Had my friend not been there we would have queried these points with the manager at the time.
Maybe you could address this with the staff and we may return to Honey.
Thank you

We were instantly greeted by the woman that seated us, and the chef said hello as well. Unfortunately I don't remember her name (24/7/19 7.30pm) but she was extremely attentive, topping up our water and wine all night for us. She was really friendly and talked us through the menu as well as giving recommendations and having a laugh with us.

The food was phenomenal. I had the set menu and the Asparagus starter was delicious, and the cauliflower risotto was amazing-the marmite butter its made with is genius. My boyfriend had the main menu scallop starter and duo of lamb main and repeatedly said how great all of the food was.

The ambience was great as the decoration was interesting and light, and the location is great so you get a 6th floor view of the city from your table. There was a martini bartender who clearly loves what he does and passionately talked people through what a martini is and how to choose what you like so that was fun to observe.

This was a birthday treat meal for me but would also be great for an evening with the girls or just a nice evening alone for a good coffee and desert with the paper.
Highly recommend everything about Honey!

Very disappointing.
Staff were v nice but service v slow and not really up to scratch - always having to ask for milk refills rather than staff noticing need for refill.
Sandwiches and cakes rather disappointing- pastry was vvv hard

Big case of could do better- room for improvement
Sorry- would have liked to have been more positive

It was very nice and a nice glass of champagne which could have been topped up slightly for a full glass. The scones could have been lighter but a nice treat none the less for a Saturday afternoon out.

We had an amazing time celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. The staff were aware of our celebration and this was beautifully cared for with a surprise "sweet" and glass for my darling wife. The food is exceptional and the drinks great (maybe a bit pricey). However the overall experience was perfect. Thank you.
