As always our dining experience was memorable for all the right reasons. Quality food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere with attentive but informal service. The chef/patron obviously cares about the standard of his cooking and this certainly translates to the plate.

Excellent and quiet place in the middle of the Northern Quarter. Very nice food. Particularly the signature dish. Also an outstanding selection of French wines.

I was looking forward to dining at 63 degrees despite having read some negative reviews online. I’m afraid the entire experience was distinctly average and does not reflect value for money. The menu was limited and the food nothing to shout about. If that’s the best of French cuisine in Manchester then it’s a real shame and marks an opportunity for someone.

An unexpected delight. Every single dish, even the side orders, were amazing. Not only was the food beautifully presented, it was also cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. The service was perfectly timed, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely go again the next time I am in Manchester.

Absolutely excellent all round. Tasty, imaginative starters, especially the asparagus eclair. Mains beautifully cooked and presented. Both the scallops and the rack of lamb were outstanding dishes. A shared assiette proved an excellent finale to an exceptional meal. We hope to return often!

Food was beautiful. We had the five course taster for £28 which is great value. The wine flight (extra £27) to go with it could have been a little better, I might have simply bought a bottle of my preferred wine on reflection, although the waiter did pair a superb glass of desert wine (Maury Grenat) and cheese at extra cost.

Overall it was one of the best meals out I have had. Would go again as a treat.

We went on a Friday evening at 7:30pm and there was only 4 other people in the restaurant, the music was so low its like there was none and you could hear a pin drop. There was zero atmosphere. Food was good but over priced and was still hungry when we left. All wines were very expensive too.

The food was lovely, well seasoned and fantastic quality. The restaurant downstairs has a nice warm feel and somewhere nice to have an intimate dinner. The cocktail are very well made and presented lovely. My only negative would be the service. I had some broken glass at the bottom of glass on the outside, so bits of glass where on my hand and the table cloth. When I shown it to one of the waiters they made out like it wasn’t an issue and thought I was angling for a new free drink, when all I wanted was a new glass. When the new glass came it was slammed on the table and I was made to pour my old drink into the new glass. Having worked in the service industry for over 10 years, I think this sort of service is unacceptable no matter how much you are paying for food and drink. However, this would not put me off from going again as the food was fantastic. The scollops, lamb chops and chocolate sphere were all amazing.

Had the lunch time menu. Wonderful food and excellent value at £20 for 3 courses. So much better than many of the set menus around. Was very quite for a Friday lunchtime, can’t understand why it isn’t more popular.

This excellent restaurant is in the building first occupied by a restaurant, the Market Restaurant. This was started by two young ladies, and was first located in Edge Street. In those days the whole area was a grotty, broken down slum. Now it is a busy vibrant area called the Northern Quarter. The Market Restaurant was like a ray of sunshine. It specialised in Belgian beers and in an upstairs room (now the main part of the restaurant) there was a monthly Pudding Club and a few other occasional specialised meals (we once went to a Russian meal). It gradually declined after being taken over several times. The food in 63 Degrees, the comfort and the setting were outstanding. The food itself was quite exceptional. There was a particularly good and reasonably priced wine list. We would be very keen to return soon, but for two aspects. One is that (with the exception of the fillet steak) the portions were somewhere between small and very small indeed. The other is that overall the service (from a delightful and very helpful teacher who apparently works part time as a waiter) was slow - our 3 course meal took from 7pm to 9.30pm, which is too long. It was a Saturday night, and fairly busy, so maybe the service is better at other times.

This was the most disappointing of our 5 visits in the last 3 years. Service in particular was a little lacking compared to previous visits. Still a pleasant value experience but it's been better....

We have been eating at 63 Degrees since it opened. It is an oasis in an otherwise uninspiring desert of formulaic eateries.
The menu - which is ever changing - is well thought out and provides excellent choice.
The food is excellent, every mouthful a delight to savour the textures and flavours.
If you do one thing in Manchester it should be to eat at 63 Degrees.

Went for Wife's Birthday dinner. Unfortunately we were sat upstairs which was bearlt half full when we arrived for 830 sitting and had only one other couple there by the time our mains came. This meant the atmosphere was somewhat lacking although the background music was present enough.

The service was proficient without being overly impressive. The food was of a very high standard. I had snails, followed by the lamb, while the wife had the foie gras and lobster rissoto , and we shared two sides. Daphenpus potatoes and salad. All was very nice but the three amb chops had at besr six small mouthfulls and the potatoe side was two or three slices of potatoe.

For desert we had chocolate sphere and creme bruce which were also very nice.

All the above with a bottle of red from the more reasonable end of the price range can to 150. While I can't fault the quality the portions were on the small side. Particularly the side of potatoes and lamb.

While I would go back, the cost makes it a special occasion venue and it's lack of atmosphere and value mean it's unlikely to be regular destination
