Three courses and a cocktail, all exceedingly well presented and cooked to perfection. Service excellent and the ambiance good. The only niggle was the receptionist who said “we are very busy, but we’ve tried our best to seat you” despite us having booked weeks in advance. It didn’t spoil the evening though and would recommend. More

What shone for us at the glasshouse was the staff, we received fabulous service, great advice on tapas meal choice and the venue as a result had a lovely welcoming feel. We were offered a private booth in the restaurant to have our business lunch which we really appreciated. Food was great, location fabulous and proximity to the Printworks NCP was perfect. Would certainly return. More

We chose ENY for our wedding anniversary dinner because we got engaged in New York and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were attentive, the service fast, and the food was absolutely delicious. My husband has the Ruben and I had the pastrami burger - both were excellent. Cocktails are quite pricey individually but are 2 for 1 before 10pm so are fine if you have two of the same one. We had a table for 20.15 and were the first ones there so the atmosphere was a bit lacking initially but a complimentary glass of fizz helped! We’ll definitely be back and will bring our NY-loving friends with us. More

Vegetarian / Vegan | Manchester, Manchester

I found this restaurant passing by on my home from work and suggested that myself and girlfriend went for a date night. On arriving I was very pleased at the very small menu. I find that small menus tend to be the best. Care and attention is taken with the dishes made. Despite only e options for starters and 3 options for mains it was still difficult to make my mind up as they all sounded delicious. I wasn't disappointed, the food was very well presented and was to die for. I cannot wait to return on out next date night. More

Asked for advice on Gin selection and tonic. Staff very knowledgeable. I believe Alberto help with service on the night. My only complaint was we felt a little over dressed in the section we we're seated. Wife's birthday so got dressed up and set next to someone in shorts on a Saturday night. More

Really enjoyed my visit to the pen and pencil! The food was lovely and in the first instance the service was great. It seems a shame that our brilliant, attentive, enthusiastic waitress had finished her shift, when she left it all went south. We sat for a while until we found someone to ask for the bill (we had to approach them) which took about 10 minutes to come. We then had to approach staff to pay. Overall it was a positive experience, just a few staff lacked attentiveness. Would definitely visit again as I'm sure this is a one off! More
