    Was not open. Why is it still possible to book given that it is closed! We wasted our time and struggled to find anywhere else to eat that wasn't booked.

    Booked restaurant for daughters 16 birthday. Travelled into Manchester from Buxton. On arrival restaurant closed, scrappy note on door saying not open today. Completely wasted journey that could have been avoided by contacting customers with bookings. Ruined my daughters birthday celebrations. Total disregard for customers. Will we book again NO. Will we be sharing our negative views of this restaurant business ABSOLUTELY YES

    Booked into Vertigo Cross Street for my birthday as the First Street branch (which we love) was full, but was really disappointed. The food and the service were ok, but the environment was horrible. As soon as we walked in we were hit by the smoky air and burning smell, which didn't dissipate the whole time we were there and ended making our eyes sting after a while. There were loads of little flies buzzing around us the whole time, and the toilet was filthy. The staff were friendly and obviously working really hard, but it felt a bit chaotic and I got the impression they were quite junior and there was no one supervising. The place could really do with a good clean and some ventilation - especially during a pandemic. Won't be going back to this branch.

    Three of us, all vegetarian so fine with vegan, planned a meal here before going to the Royal Exchange ( very convenient location for this). Service, food and ambience all good. We had all eaten there before so knew what to expect. It's also reasonably priced so has probably become our favourite for the nowadays (sadly) rare excursions into Manchester.

    The restaurant was cold and covered in leaves as they couldn’t close the doors so it wasn’t a comfortable environment. The food was average as was the service.

    The food was wonderful! I have ordered takeaway from here before and I knew that the portions would be big so I ordered two small plates. My Mum got a small and a big but she couldn't finish it all, even though it was delicious. Neither of us are vegans. The restaurant was very quiet (this was dinner on a Friday night) and everything felt very relaxed. The music was nice but not too loud so we could have a proper catch up and the staff were very friendly but gave us lots of space. I will definitely go again!

    When we arrived we were told that two of the main items were missing off the menu. The dishwasher was broken and they asked us if we wanted plates. Said yes but they weren’t happy about it for some reason (probably because they would have to wash up by hand) and still served us with takeaway boxes! Real shame as we were there for a sit down meal. There were flies buzzing around our heads the whole time and the music was really bad. Food was cold and bland. Too much coriander so it tasted like soap. All in all a bad experience and our server (whose name began with M) had a lot of attitude and didn’t ask us how it was and wasn’t bothered when we complained about the things above, just ignored us and walked off. A long way to go for it to become a desirable place to have an evening meal.

    Booked a table for 2 at 5pm. Really friendly staff but could be more attentive. There was only one other diner there but the service wasn't great. We had to constantly ask for everything - sometimes twice. Felt the cauliflower starter was overpriced but as we went for the set menu, that evened out. I wouldn't rush back but it was pleasant enough.

    Came here for an early dinner and was not disappointed. Everything seemed to flow at such a lovely pace without anything coming across rushed. Cauliflower & Bao Buns were amazing starters, after we had the burger and chilli which again, was amazing! We were quite full at the end so we shared their signature biscoff cake to finish with and wow, what a finish to the meal! Staff were really attentive and welcoming!

    What a lovely place! It's right in the centre of Manchester and a cool little hot spot of plant based goodness. We did the early evening dining offer which was a small plate, a large plate and a glass of wine for £17 per person which was so good. We had the bao buns, daal and cheeseburger which were all delicious. Definitely going to book again and maybe even come back for some of that cake and coffee tomorrow..

    Very dirty place, had to ask for our drinks several times and there was only 1 other couple in there so it wasn’t busy. The small plates were nice but the microwave curry served to me was horrible and the rice was uncooked, I asked for 2 other things on the menu which they said they had ran out of before I had to ask for this curry which I never actually wanted. Staff leant on the counters on there phones whilst I had asked for my drinks on more than one occasion and still not received them. The vertigo restaurant in salford I had an amazing experience in and will definitely return the one in town was terrible and I couldn’t believe how dirty it was.

    Visited on Friday 13th March. I ordered a hot chocolate with the mac and cheese to start and the Cheezeburger with sweet potato salad as my main. Such tasty food, by far the best burger I've ever eaten and fantastic, friendly staff too. My girlfriend had the same main with the chicken satay starter and we both loved our first trip to Vertigo. Will most definitely be returning very soon and will be telling everyone how good it was :)

    Food was delicious and well-priced (especially the peanut butter dhal! A flavour combination I'd never have thought of but am deffo glad these folks did!) Dessert was also incredible - a toffee-apple sponge bake - and staff neatly wrapped it for me, warmed and with a scoop of ice-cream to take away as I was on a tight schedule. Location is conveniently close to the Royal Exchange, so Vertigo makes an ideal pre-theatre dinner option. They even have a pre-theatre menu! The only drawbacks in my opinion were the loos (all the way downstairs secluded in the basement, which would make them hard to access for mobility-impaired individuals) and the small space, which meant tables were crammed very close together and there wasn't much room for multiple dishes on each table.

    It was late but the place was full and that meant a bit of a wait. The food was fine, although the mushroom pie I had was a bit dry pastry wise. The hoummus and bread looked good and my starter of cauliflower wings was nice and hot. Shame padron peppers weren't on the menu that night though.

    The vibe is a bit odd, very bare walls and a bit hollow. The food was nice, however both our dishes were incredibly spicy, we both like hot food but this was a bit over the top.
