Diner Reviews
  • "Great place for a birthday celebration as it's a bit different. The unlimited fries and salad really was unlimited and you didn't even have to ask. Starters expensive for what they are as are the drinks. Lobster definitely recommended. Cabger quite noisy when groups are in but that is probably due to the accoustics of the room."

  • "This was the first time I had lobster and I will be having it again!!! The food is very good value for money. The 'all you can eat' salad and chips is pretty non-existent due to the poor service. We were sat down at 5.30pm and ordered rather quickly. We had olives and bread for starter and that came out quickly. Another couple sat down next to us (very close proximity) and ordered after our starter plates had been cleared. Our dinner was given to them! Not even an apology from the waitress and out dinner did not arrive for another 15mins!!! Service doesn't particularly bother me in a standard restaurant like is, I just don't pay the tip! Overall, the food was great and I have booked again - but I won't tip them if the service is poor."

  • "Average steak, average lobster and poor bordering on rude service, particularly from the restaurant manager."

  • "hotel restaurant. Functional. But good value Steak and Lobster and that's what we wanted before going to the Velodrome so fit for purpose"
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "Great concept, either a whole lobster, steamed or grilled; or steak, unlimited fries and salad, for £17. We had one of each, lobster was delicious and steak very good, fries and salad kept coming and service was excellent. As menu is limited choice the food comes very quickly so great for pre-theatre or if you don't want a long drawn-out meal, however we took our time and weren't rushed. Lovely wines too."

  • "I was there with my family for a nice meal after graduation. We had steaks and a glass of wine and some cheese for desert. The food was delicious, the service very nice and friendly. A great experience overall, and great value for money. I would certainly go there again and recommend it to friends!"
    dined on 09/12/2013
  • "Have been to Steak and Lobster twice now, excellent value for money, staff very friendly and keen to offer any refills of chips/salad, staff also happy to help any new lobster eaters with tips, will definitely be going back soon"
    dined on 17/05/2013
  • "Busy city centre bistro-style restaurant. We went for an early supper after a matinee theatre performance. Big screen TVs showing Sky Sports near the bar attracts residents and non-residents alike, which detracts somewhat from the overall ambience. The food and service, however, were both excellent, and good value. We both went for the grilled lobster which was a great choice."
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Lovely setting, beautiful food. Both the Lobster and the Steak are good value (I insisted y partner get the other for a nice care-share manoeuvre. Friendly service and very good value especially with the bottomless fires and salad."

  • "Good food, lobster preparation were simple but effective and tasty. Slightly limited menu. drinks were good but pricey. Overall ok value. Staff attentive."
    dined on 19/12/2012
  • "The restaurant was very nice inside and quite a good atmosphere. There didn't seem to be enough staff and when the food came it was luke warm. The taste was there but a shame it was not hot. The steak/lobster was £17 with an additional charge for sauce. The salad was limp and the croutons were soft."
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "Was expecting a larger lobster. You had to throw most of what you got away.. Was alright but over-priced in my book."
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "Our 2nd visit in 2 weeks - great value and excellent food. However this time let down by the service. 5 minutes after sitting down we had to ask for a wine list. No issue with food or quality of wine. Decided to share a cheese board for dessert. Asked the waitress and after 10 minutes still had not arrived. A second waitress then came over, apologised for the delay and asked if we would like to order dessert! We eventually got the cheese. Not sure what hapened in the space of a week, but service definitely gone downhill in a week. Hopefully just a one-off"
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "Choose steak or lobster - both come with crisp fries and perfectly dressed salad, plus a choice of sauces. Need more fries or salad - just ask. Perfectly cooked and presented with excellent service. Well portioned cheese board to follow rounded off an excellent evening. The main was £15 each, and although just gone up to £17 we have already booked again to go this Friday. We both had the steak last week, so time to try out the lobster!"
    dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Although I love food, both eating and preparing it, I'd never had lobster before, so this seemed a great opportunity. The restaurant itself is in the new "shell" of the Radisson, created behind the old facade of the Free Trade Hall. This works well. We were seated promptly and our server explained the routine of dining and the (limited) options available. The food wasn't rushed, but the wait was acceptable and when it came, it was hot and tasty. We had anther fries and salad each, no charge for this and enjoyed fiddling with the various lobster parts. Would I do it again? Sure at that price, what's not to like? Lobster? It was good but fiddly, so its steak for me next time. The wine isn't cheap though, but great value though overall."
    dined on 08/10/2013
  • "For what we paid it was excellent, we enjoyed the steak and the lobster."
    dined on 02/10/2013
  • "We had a table booked for 8pm on a Friday night, the restaurant was busy and there was a really nice chilled out ambience. We ordered 1 lobster & 1 steak meal and both were delicious, we were offered more fries & salad halfway through our meal which was a nice suprise. We both also had dessert and coffee, the staff were really friendly and attentive without being annoying, We really enjoyed our evening and plan to visit Alto again with friends."
    dined on 04/10/2013
  • "£15 for either a lobster or Sirloin steak (with unlimited fries and salad) is too good a deal. I prefer the steamed lobster myself as it's more juicy than the grilled lobster. I am not a fan of sirloin so I have never tried the steak. However, I am impressed with the steak bite starter (additional cost). The restaurant itself is pleasant enough, the tables can be quite close to each other and you will overhear the next table's conversation. It can get pretty noisy when everybody starts talking. Service is a bit hit and miss especially when it's busy. You may have to actively seek the attention of the staff on more than one occasion to get something. That said, I'll go there again when I have a craving for lobster."
    dined on 30/08/2013
  • "Great as always. I have taken advantage of the steak and lobster offer several times and every time, the food, service and ambience is spot on. Thank you and I look forward to the next time!"
    dined on 04/09/2013
  • "Solo diner only in town 1 x night, I thought it good value, the waiter brought me as much fries & salad as I wanted, nice location, the guy who showed me my table was welcoming explaining how the deal worked.. Enjoyed it & afterwardfs I asked the waiter for a nice bar to take a drink, by the canal, he recommended a place again nice spot.."
    dined on 31/08/2013
  • "My partner and myself had never tried lobster before, not only was the food delicious but it was affordable and the hole general feel was top quality. We'd definitely go again and take friends:-)"
    dined on 24/08/2013
  • "Been lots of times and always good food and service - would definitely recommend"
    dined on 22/08/2013
  • "This is a very limited menu of Steak or Lobster, there is a vegetarian option also and some starters. Unlimited fries and salad which is a bonus. The staff are very welcoming, food is wonderful and morish so we got steak each and a lobster to share.... drinks and desert are lovely also. Lovely place to eat, lovely ambience and wonderful service."
    dined on 08/08/2013
  • "I ordered the lobster in alto restaurant at the radisson hotel, I sent it back as it was over cooked, it tasted like a rubber ring, the second lobster arrived, that to was over cooked. I decided not to complain, again, I wanted to finish my meal (what I could eat of it) & leave. The fries looked & tasted as if they came from McDonald's. The interior of alto is tired & grubby, this restaurant needs a re vamp, & it was void of atmosphere, but what do you expect from a hotel restaurant? The only redeeming quality was the service was polite."
    dined on 30/07/2013
  • "Its been over 6 months since we last dined at Alto but the food and service are still as good as we remembered. We ate there on a Saturday night but it wasn't so busy where we needed to book and that was just as well as they didn't have our booking listed ! We'll be regulars again over the next few months"
    dined on 06/07/2013
  • "We went to Alto on a Friday night so they were quite busy, They did try and seat us in a corner by the bar but it was a bit of a dark and dingy spot so we asked for another table and they gave us exactly the table we wanted without any fuss whatsoever which was great. The food was FABULOUS. Lobster was marinated perfectly, sauces on the table to stop us constantly having to ask for them like we do in most restaurants and the staff were attentive throughout. My husband had a coffee after and said even the coffee was delicious. We booked this meal as a final feast before we start our month of fasting for religious reasons and we can't wait to go back as a celebratory meal when the fast is over. All in all fantastic meal out, HIGHLY recommend!"
    dined on 05/07/2013
  • "Three of us went for the steamed lobster. It was absolutely beautiful, and very good value for money for just £15. Will definitely go back."
    dined on 05/07/2013
  • "This was booked as a special birthday meal for my sister sisters special birthday and her husband. We met up with them. We had 2 lobster and 2 steak between the four of us, and each were done to our individual preference. It was fab. Not a posh meal but very much a finger linking experience. The place was buzzing which a great atmosphere. although we did not have any starters, we felt, we had eaten enough. You could have had more fries and salad if you wanted."
    dined on 29/06/2013
  • "The food was delicious, so tasty and so much great value and quality.. The staff are lovely and the restaurant is very welcoming and comfortable. The drinks are a little in the pricey side but would definatly go again for the amazing food."
    dined on 29/06/2013
  • "A couple of colleagues and I went out for lunch to celebrate two birthdays. We were given a nice round table in the lighter area of the restaurant (some parts are quite dark). The waitress was friendly and efficient. Thankfully the music was not too loud so we could engage in some juicy gossip. The steaks were of a decent size and delicious and the sauces (an additional £ 2.50) were a big hit. The lobster was finger licking good but be prepared to spend some time trying to get all the meet out, this can be a little frustrating when you are feeling a bit peckish ! Anyway, go and find out for yourself - you won't regret it."
    dined on 18/06/2013
  • "Delicious lobster and refills on fries/salad.Always happy to make a healthier version of the food as well!"
    dined on 19/01/2013
  • "Simple, outstanding value, classy setting and great service. What more can people want? Great food? Ok, that's in there as well. The idea is simply brilliant and works extremely well. Great choice of drinks to accompany the meal and the ambience of the restaurant is perfect too. I cannot recommend this place any more!"
    dined on 01/06/2013
  • "Found the feeling of the restaurant a little cold but the staff were friendly and efficient. The steak and the Lobster were cooked to our liking but a little disappointed that a huge blob of butter had been popped on the steak and the salad was mostly croutons and not at all a healthy option, maybe another genuine salad might be offered. Found the cheese board and coffee were excellent value and rounded off the meal nicely. Worth giving a try but I would choose to try another venue for my next theatre visit."
    dined on 11/05/2013
  • "The actual title is a little misleading as I was expecting to lobster and steak.... but it is actually either lobster or steak. But overall, the food was good."
    dined on 20/04/2013
  • "A limited menu, but it is Steak and Lobster, my 2 favourite foods. Lovely ambience very welcoming restaurant, the service is good and they catered to whatever we required. My son actually had a second steak as it was so nice. Food done to what you actually ask for and the salad and fries are a plenty. If you want a top up of fries and salad these are free as many times as you like. Definitely recommend to friends, couples and families for a lovely evening. To top it off the music was fantastic and my children (16/17) were very impressed with absolutely everything. Try this place you will not be disappointed."
    dined on 17/04/2013
  • "We visited on a Sunday evening, both ordered grilled Lobster, arrived promptly and well cooked. Would definitely return."
    dined on 07/04/2013
  • "I love the concept of this place and its excellent value for money; but some small tweaks would make it better. Twice i have booked via Top Table and twice the restaurant doesn't have my booking when I arrive. Service can be a little slow, especially if you're sat out of view."
    dined on 04/04/2013
  • "It was an average evening . Lobster was nice but the fries were like McDonald's Fries but tasted ok ."
    dined on 27/03/2013
  • "Very good value for money and an ideal mid week treat. Does what it says on the tin. My partners steak was cooked well and my lobster just right"
