Brilliant Service!Went here for our Anniversay - what a night! i had read mixed reviews, mostly good i might add but mixed all the same so i went in with an open mind. We arrived early and were shown to our table immediately. Now granted it was a Monday Night so it wasn't overly busy but there was still a fair few people in. I had requested a booth and mentioned it was our anniversary when i booked which was 5wks beforehand. The lady who greeted us took us to our booth and wished us both a Happy Anniversary - its things like that, that mean a lot & make a difference! Our waitress was very attentive and made our whole night feel special, she couldn't do enough for us and i only wish that we had got her name! Food was gorgeous and cooked to perfection! Thanku13/05/2013 00:00:00Consistently good!Great atmosphere, comfortable, friendly staff. It's all good!
Weekend breakfasts and the lunch time weekday special menu represent outstanding value.
Dinner lovely too.
Just go already!12/05/2013 00:00:00First visitLovely waitresses, wonderful ambience. Great mix of people. Service very efficient. Thought we'd have long wait because they were so busy, but we didn't. Can't wait to go back.11/05/2013 00:00:00Good foodGreat service, food lovely. The booths enable you to talk rather than shout. It can get noisy but good atmosphere. Definitely be back!10/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent first time at AlbertsI live just around the corner from Alberts and we've been there for drinks many times but Wednesday night was my first experience dining there and I wasn't disappointed. The waiting staff were all equally friendly and attentive and the food was delicious.08/05/2013 00:00:00Amazing Albert'sFrom the moment My partner and I stepped in, we both had a good feel factor. We were seen to promptly.
I was amazed how good the service was and how quickly the food was in front of us. It was as though Albert's new what we wanted before we ordered.
The food was cooked to perfection from starters, main course to desert absolutely outstanding.
THANK YOU ALBERT'S04/05/2013 00:00:00Friday night with friends.Good night . food and service was very good.you may have long delay for a sweet.03/05/2013 00:00:00My favourite Lunchtime VenueI can not think of anywhere better to go for lunch03/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent lunch on FridayExcellent lunch on Friday (at 5pm!). So good we came back for Sunday lunch. Alberts has got it exactly right. Loved eating outdoors. With the heaters, it felt like summer.03/05/2013 00:00:00Great atmosphere. Great food.A place to go to see and be seen. The bar is great for pre dinner drinks. Try the espresso martini - fabulous27/04/2013 00:00:00Good restaurant, good food!The atmosphere was warm and inviting and we immediately felt relaxed. The ambience was modern and stylish. The service was very good and efficient throughout. The food was cooked to a good standard and we thoroughly enjoyed each course. The venison was tender and the dauphinoise potatoes were absolutely delicious (could have eaten a whole plate!!) and creamed leeks complimented the dish well. The sticky toffee pudding was soft with just the right amount of sweetness.
We felt the meal was good value for money and we would definitely go back. We went to the restaurant for an anniversary meal and feel the restaurant is a good place to go not only for special occasions but for a romantic meal, or meal with friends/family.24/04/2013 00:00:00FantasticAte here on a Monday lunch, sat outside as the weather was nice this seemed a popular choice, service was attentive but not overbearing, food was a fantastic great menu choices you could order from the full menu or a lunch menu 2 courses for about £15.
We will definitely return23/04/2013 00:00:00excellent evening8 of us have just dined at Albert's in Didsbury. This is my 2nd visit to the restaurant and once again the food, service and ambience was outstanding. The only slight negative was one of our party is disabled, with extreme mobility problems. We were unable to park in a disabled parking bay due to an inconsiderate diner (without blue badge) parking there. I did mention it to a waitress but due to the restaurant being very full, nothing was done. It would have been nice for feedback from the waitress. Anyway, it didn't spoil a superb night. Will definitely go again.20/04/2013 00:00:00Enjoyed a lovely lunchLovely food, friendly atmosphere, helpful staff. Lovely weather. We were sitting outside. Enjoyed it.
Definitely go again.15/04/2013 00:00:00Birthday mealUpon arriving we were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. We had a couple of drinks (without queue's) at the bar while waiting for the table but this was due to arriving early and not that the table wasn't ready. Atmosphere was great and generally a good feeling.
Once seated, the waitress was very friendly and patient with us. The food choice was perfect for our liking and standard of food was A1. Time between courses and drinks service was also perfect. We never felt rushed and honestly this was a perfect evening.13/04/2013 00:00:00Why wouldn't youExcellent service delivering a menu of wonderful food, the tbone steak cut like a knife in butter, offering descent sized portions. For those driving I would recommend the elderflower and apple cocktail.
We were struggling to hear each other due to the music being too loud whilst waiting for a table. Once seated this was better as we were fortunately to sit at the far side of the restaurant in a booth.13/04/2013 00:00:00The food was outstanding onceThe food was outstanding once again staff so lovely services was great13/04/2013 00:00:00Gorgeous Food!!6 of us went to Alberts for my mum's birthday and we had such a great evening. All of us loved our food and were talking about how nice it was for the rest of the evening. Would definitely go again and try something else as the menu sounded beautiful and I found it hard to choose just one meal.12/04/2013 00:00:00Set Lunch Great valueWith Champagne at half price four of us had delightful set lunch with Steak Diane at less than £6012/04/2013 00:00:00Steak DianeThis steak was a disappointment, just pieces cut off -- not a nice thin steak , as previously enjoyed.
I shall not be ordering this again in the near future.11/04/2013 00:00:00ScrummyLovely food, lovely staff, lovely surroundings.
What more could you want.
Perfect for any celebration, or just for a quiet meal for two.
Portions are just the right size, but a warning - you will be excommunicated from Weight Watchers !!!!
The steak is fabulous, the risotto is yummy....................we shall have fun working our way through this menu.10/04/2013 00:00:00Great lunch!Just had yet another great meal at Albert's Didsbury. Eaten here several times now and never been dissappointed. Fast, friendly, efficient service with a smile and meals always tasty and presented well.09/04/2013 00:00:00Saturday lunch with parentsLovely waitress, made my parents days extra special.
The sun was shining and we took coffee outside
Excellent value 2 courses £10.95 12-4 pm on a sat!06/04/2013 00:00:00Great food, good menuWe thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Alberts. The food was excellent and the menu offered a wide choice which pleased four very different tastes. Highly recommend it.06/04/2013 00:00:00Fabulous diningMy cousin came to visit me in Manchester so I decided to book a table here to kick off our weekend. The atmosphere and welcome were fantastic and we enjoyed a delicious meal. Our server was friendly and attentive though knew when to leave us alone to enjoy each other's company and the food at our own leisurely pace. I will be going again and am already thinking of booking a group of us in for a birthday treat in August! Highly recommended.05/04/2013 00:00:00Great EveningA small group of friends we decided to try this restaurant for our mid week catch up. The ambiance is delightful and the staff even more so. Nothing was too much trouble and we were dealt with swiftly but not hastily frienldy but not over familiar. The food although of moderate sized portions was beautifully cooked and presented.without being over fussy!
The toilets were spotless and this is often the measure of a well run organisiation.04/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent south Manchester diningThe food and ambience is always excellent and service really friendly.02/04/2013 00:00:00Great food, great service.We enjoyed three fantastic courses. Attention to detail is second to none, both in terms of the service which was polite, enthusiastic but not overbearing and the presentation of the food which was excellent. We particularly likes the miniature saucepans and colanders that the sauces and salads came in. Nice touch. Above all, the food was perfectly cooked and considered. Excellent.01/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely food in a very nice settingAfter reading previous reviews we had high expectations and we were not dissapointed. We did make a mistake in ordering an appetiser and then not having room for a pudding!! We both opted for things we dont usually choose, Rabbit Gnocci, Jamaican fish curry, Mushrooms on toast and Monkfish Thai Curry and they were all delicious and rich!! You wont regret booking a table here. Also thought the food was fairly priced. We have already recommeded this place to friends.30/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely lunchDined from the 2 courses for £10.95 menu - excellent value. Lovely food, attentive staff. Great ambience. Looking forward to returning.30/03/2013 00:00:00Great night outReally nice restaurant/bar. Lovely atmosphere in the evening. Very lively. Nice bar area. We were a group of 6 and were seated in a booth which was great. The only downsides were the service was a little slow, especially whilst waiting for desserts. Someone did come and apologise for this however. Also the "background" music was quite loud, making conversation a little difficult, especially in the bar area.29/03/2013 00:00:00Above expectationsFantastic venue, great choice in menu and wonderful atmosphere!29/03/2013 00:00:00Superb food, drinks & valueThe menu is extensive with a good mix of dishes. The steaks are juicy and tender and full of flavour. Huge range of pizzas but with more exotic toppings than the norm. The duck, spring onion and hoisin sauce pizza is scrummy! Again, the sides are different than the norm and all are so tasty, the leeks & pancetta are a real treat. Alberts also specialises in great cocktails. The selection is huge and they are so reasonably priced. The spiced Mai Tai and the Singapore Sling are amongst my favourites. Fridays is half price champagne day, what more can I say!
Alberts is a super place full of atmosphere, friendly attentive staff, a great menu and amazing value for money. We travel 90 miles to visit and it is well worth it!29/03/2013 00:00:00Enjoyed a lovely meal. ThereEnjoyed a lovely meal. There were 7 of us and everyone had something different, everything excellent. Very busy for a wednesday evening which was nice, it was a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly.27/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday/anniversary dinnerCame to Alberts for my birthday and anniversary dinner with my wife.
The staff were courteous and attentive without being in your face and the food was excellent.
I had rabbit gnocchi to start followed by the venison while my wife had prawns and haddock risotto. Each dish was great and a good portion size.
The wine was very reasonably priced too!26/03/2013 00:00:00A Great RestaurantWe went for an impromptu meal with our children, 12 & 14, we all loved the stylish decor and bustling atmosphere - kids loved the mini-steak and chips starter. Our waitress was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Only slight negative was the desserts seemed a little limited, but that may have been that we were so full, we were over-faced!
Highly recommended, will go back again.23/03/2013 00:00:00Friendly Staff, Delicious Food!A very enjoyable experience, and clearly a very popular venue as I had to make a reservation earlier that day to ensure a table. The food was to a very high standard, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.22/03/2013 00:00:00My favourite Lunchtime VenueWhen I'm running late, I love to pop into Albert's for a late lunch, it always brightens my day.21/03/2013 00:00:00well prepared tasty food withwell prepared tasty food with good choice in a modern if noisy ambience--service was polite helpful and efficient-by todays standards it was well priced and good value20/03/2013 00:00:00deserves its reputationI haven't met anyone whose eyes don't light up when you mention Alberts. The food is fantastic and so are the staff - they make you feel like its a genuine pleasure and are always friendly. Can't wait for the next visit!17/03/2013 00:00:00Great venue for any occasionWe have never been disappointed with the food and service at Alberts. Even on a busy Saturday night (16th March) the staff were welcoming ,efficient and helpful. The specials menu provided additional choices and I ordered the slow cooked 'daub' of beef which was excellent. After the meal we had cocktails at the bar which was enjoyed by all. Looking forward to my next visit, hopefully very soon.16/03/2013 00:00:00Monday night outFirst time at Alberts (it was recommended by a friend) and I was very impressed by the food and service and will certainly be going back again.11/03/2013 00:00:00Cannot fault this restaurantI have dined at Albert's Didsbury on several occasions now and have never been disappointed. Everything about the dining experience, whether it be lunch or later on, is spot on, with very efficient servers (without being intrusive); very pleasant surroundings; delicious food which is well presented and at very reasonable prices and there is plenty of choice on the menu.
I am so pleased that I was introduced to this restaurant which has already become a firm favourite to return to time and again.11/03/2013 00:00:00top marksWent for lunch Monday place was buzzing had a lovely meal plus cocktail from bar .

The three course Mothers Day meal was outstanding! I had Roast Pork complete with crackling and apple sauce...yummy. Unfortunantly I didn't have room for my dessert but the lovely waitress ( sorry I can't remember her name ) boxed it up and let me take it home! I love Alberts and am already planning my next visit. Thank you to everybody that worked so hard as it was so busy that day. Real professionals!!!!!

Had a most enjoyable night and would go again09/03/2013 00:00:00tipWe had a great meal really nice time BUT when i got the bill i did not see anything wrong and was going to pay and also leave a good tip for the lady that looked after us she was great then my brother saw the bill and told me it included the tip i was shocked and think this is very wrong if i want to give a tip i will i should not be forced we asked about this and they said they would make sure the lady would get the money that was the only problem but it was a big problem to us
thanks steve09/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday dinnerBeen to Alberts 3 times now and the best - food amazing and beautifully presented . Great decor and atmosphere. Staff very friendly and polite - always smiling. Other restaurants take note of how it should be done! Def go again.09/03/2013 00:00:00yummy!The food was amazing! The starter and main were absolutely fantastic! The dessert was very good but not quite as good as the other two courses.
The atmosphere was very nice, but the acoustics were not very good. It tends to get very noisy in there, as the restaurant is laid out as one big room.
The service could have been outstanding had we been left to eat for a longer spell of time. Every 5 - 10 minutes the friendly waitress topped up our glasses and asked if we needed anything. She was very friendly, but we would have liked to enjoy our food and our conversation without her interruptions.
Albert's is a lovely restaurant and we will go back there! It is, however, not quite the right place to go if you're going out to have a chat.09/03/2013 00:00:00
