    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "We visited on a Saturday were taken up to the cinnabar first which was very nice. Shown to our table 25 mins later than booked. The restaurant was very busy. The food was amazing and we weren't rushed I did feel that there wasn't enough staff to ask for another drink. Overall though a very enjoyable evening for me and my boyfriend especially for him as there was a manchester city footballer on the next table."

  • "i feel vermillion is the type of place you would take your wife on a first date after you marry whilst you are blissfully in love.. an amazing dining experience, the food is yummy and the restaurant has a great atmosphere with very polite staff. best to keep this place a secret and only take somebody there who is REALLLLLYYYY special :)"
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "A brilliant effort by staff to facilitate a surprise birthday in such pristine surroundings. Decadent food, with an abrading ambience aided by the truly glorious surrounds, I would very highly recommend!"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "6 off us went on the 29th April 14, had a fantastic night. Food was outstanding, service and ambience is very good. Will be going back soon."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Good, but not great. If anything the ambience is too spacious and you feel a bit lost inside a warehouse, we tend to prefer spaces that are more intimate. The food was well executed, but as our group chose to have one of the banquets we ended up having more dishes that I would consider Indian rather than Thai. Service was impeccable."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "We chose to go to the Vermilion as we have always wanted to try it - I was absolutely blown away by the food, service and the place itself. I certainly will be returning in the future. Thank you for making my night :)"
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "We booked last minute and didnt know where was good to eat. The deal offered us £17.50 per head for a three course meal including a glass of wine. the meal was great value and very quick to come out. Thoroughly enjoyed."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "we booked through top table, well in advance as it was a birthday weekend trip to manchester from london. we struggled to be allowed to drink in the bar, when we arrived early for our meal, as we had not booked a table at the bar? the website for booking doesnt tell you to make a reservation for the bar at this restaurant, and you cant get in without one. we persuaded them to let us in, and although it looked good, there wasnt really any atmosphere! the restaurant however served lovely food, wasnt that expensive but again, not much ambience. its also in a remote location, but they will order you a cab before you leave. overall, it was ok!"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Lamb mass aman was not to taste otherwise fantastic meal great service and yummy cocktails"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Took my bf here for his birthday. I was impressed from start to finish. Food quality was superb, ambiance was rich and the little extras like a 'Happy Birthday' note on the table when we arrived, and the sparkling candle on the mango cheesecake for dessert made it a successful evening. He was very happy, and I was happy spending my hard earned dollars there. I have been raving about it to friends, and will definitely visit again."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "We attended Vermillion for the first time at the weekend. When reading their website this establishment seem to offer all the requirements we desired for the evening. Vermilion did not fail to deliver all our expectations and in addition provided a most attractive environment for mixed ages which is a refreshing change."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • ";-) Food was amazing. Everything we ordered was truly exquisite. Service in the restaurant was very friendly and efficient. Ambience was fab and the in the bar really did put the icing on the cake. :-( Staff in the bar and reception were very poor, bordering on rude ! DJ was a good touch but was inflexible in what he played. Overall a very enjoyable evening"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Very warm welcome, fantastic restaurant. Food was great and a very nice atmosphere. Highly recommend:-)"
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "My friends and I ate at Vermilion for my birthday. We ordered a variety of meals which we shared. All agreed that the food was outstanding. Levely helpful staff and beautiful surroundings made our evening complete. I have already recommended to friends."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "The only almost good thing about the place is the service and the decoration other than that the food was awful."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Firstly, me and girlfriend ordered two starters, one was cold, i sent it back! We had pad thai and steak for main, i asked for chicken in the pad thai to accompy the prawns which my girlfriend prefers. When i recieved my bill, to my amazement there was an 'open food' charge for £3.00. The waitress explained this was for my chicken in the pad thai, i asked to speak with the manager because i felt £3.00 for 'extra' chicken was ridiculous especially as there were only two prawns for my girlfriend!! However, she did manage to find four prawn tails??? Disgusting! I paid my bill once the manger had altered the £3.00 charge. We were then accused on two occasions of not paying our bill by a waitress!! I had to PROVE with my reciept i had, we left!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "The food was the best i've ever tasted! will definitely be visiting again!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "We booked for Valentines day, the set menu was good,service not that great!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "I booked a table for valentines and having seen the 5 course menu both myself and my wife were really looking forward to the meal however i have to say we came away disappointed.... I guess the main reason for our disappointment is that the menu really wasn't very clear and we had one impression of what we were going to get and ended up with something different! Not what you want on a special occasion, plus the waiter didn't correct us until the food arrived! Also an underwhelming dessert didn't give the wow factor to special meal. Having said that the food itself was fantastic, i cant fault it in anyway and i would come back just to same some of the a la carte menu but overall just not what i expected from the standard of restaurant."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "A lovely meal for a few friends who have not met up in a long time. Food was amazing and menu was suited to all. A bit too expensive we felt. I would go back but not often as there are other restaurants just as good and much cheaper."
    dined on 10/02/2014
  • "The food was ok. It could have been hotter!! Service was slow - we had to wait too long for drinks to be served."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "I brought my wife here for her birthday. We really enjoyed our meal. The setting and ambience was brilliant."
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "Having dined here before but never on a Sunday with buffet I was apprehensive as to whether the quality of food would match up to its usual high standards. I was not disappointed. The food and Ambience was still top notch! Only one area of improvement, and that would be more child friendly milder currys/main dishes. Will definitely be going back."
    dined on 02/02/2014
  • "i have dined at vermillion 3 times now. Both the second and first time were outstanding. However when i booked to go for my boyfriends 21st birthday, we were both dissapointed. We were shown to the bar where we ordered cocktails, we then ordered a second round and were shown to our table. We waited half an hour and the drinks still hadnt come, we asked where they were and were brought the order we had made for our first drinks, totally wrong to what we had ordered the second time. It took a total of 40 minutes for our correct drinks to come. The food as always was lovely, but also when we complained about it being a special occasion we were promised they would make up for it, which they didnt. dissapointing especially as we spent a lot"
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "We went for the first time for the Sunday buffet & the place is stunning, the staff were very nice & the food was excellent. Fresh food was brought out constantly & the quality of the food was very good. We'll definitely be going back"
    dined on 26/01/2014
  • "Quite stunning inside and great service, really looked after us. Tables a little close together and not a venue for a quiet romantic evening but great for people watching. Food was good, not amazing but certainly above average. Definitely worth a visit for the design elements and the cool funky nature of the venue."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "Had a great time here with the group I went. We were very impressed with how much choice there was available, especially on the set menus. Really good portion sizes so worth the money!"
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "The food and service were great. The atmosphere was excellent but very noisy. We were seated directly at the side of a very large group and unfortunately as a couple our conversation was dround which did limit our evening."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "This was my first trip to Vermillion and i have to say the whole experience was a winner. The layout and decor are first rate. The food was good, service was good if i was to be picky i would say front of house lets the show down a little. Simple things like the walk from the upstairs bar to your table would normally see the drinks on a tray and taken down for you rather than carrying them yourself. This place is not in the same league as Australasia in my opinion but its definitely worth a visit."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "As always the food is very good, but we quickly realized why we were the only customers for lunch. There is no lunch menu. So if you are happy to pay more than £ 60.- for two people (just starter and main, plus tea and two glasses of wine) then this is a really good restaurant. The Sunday lunch, on the other hand, is much better value and quite lovely."
    dined on 09/01/2014
  • "Excellent night, drinks in the bar beforehand, great lighting, cocoon beds were definitely something different, especially if you had a party group or want to have a romantic moment together. Staff were very attentive, in fact maybe over attentive but you would complain if they weren't. We chose the set menu Asia selection which seemed very popular. It was a good choice and ample food for two with a good selection of dishes. The decor & ambience are excellent and we enjoyed the whole evening and will definitely be going back. It's not the cheapest place to dine but thought it was reasonable considering what we had. Service charge is added to the bill."
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "We dined here on New Years Eve after reading excellent reviews about the restaraunt. When we booked the table we were not informed that there would be no a-la-carte menu only the set menu for the occasion. The main courses were awful & presented extremely poorly. It was fairly apparent that we did not enjoy the main course due to the amount we left, they asked if we enjoyed it. The dessert can only described as in-edible. We both tried the dessert & agreed that it was foul beyond belief. I would also like to mention that I contacted Vermillion the next day & told them about our poor experience; no effort has been made to reply. Don't go there, you'll pay 5* prices for 2* food & sub-standard service. Never again!"
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "As it was a evening meal for 2 the restaurant music was far to loud and we find it hard to hear each other, however this is the only criticism of the whole dining experience the staff were attentive and very helpful when describing the menu and the food was excellent, It is pricey but we would definitely return again."
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "A nice place, good food and atmosphere. Waiters not as attentive as they could be... Food presentation was excellent, photo worthy desserts :)"
    dined on 12/01/2014
  • "We spent this evening at Vermilion with an outstanding New Years Eve dinner. The ambiance in this beautifully decorated restaurant was just great. Very friendly personal. We enjoyed the whole meal very much. Two little critics as amendment: The surface of the little table was just not big enough to take all the dishes and beverages. Larger tables would be more adequate to feel more comfortable. The music sound from the above disco was a little bit to loud for an elder couple like us. The service and support to get a taxi was just great."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "Spacious restaurant with good decor & ambience and tasty food but little on the expensive side Went for my husband's special birthday family dinner (no extra frills despite announcing that it was a special birthday occasion in the booking e- mail!!).Service was very good."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "We love the luxurious décor in this restaurant and the food is second to none. There is an extensive menu choice and the service is polite and efficient. Customers feel special and are rewarded with an unforgettable dining experience."
    dined on 03/01/2014
  • "There are really good gluten free options here, lovely bar upstairs & a great atmosphere. I always have a great time here. The food was really good, although my Rock Lobster was slightly overcooked."
