The second time my girlfriends and I have spent a lovely, leisurely. Saturday afternoon enjoying a range of Bakerie's gorgeous mains and desserts. The service is friendly and super efficient and you never feel rushed.

Wonderful food and service. We went at 5pm on Wednesday and the restaurant was nice and quiet, the waitress was very attentive but still gave us our space to enjoy our meal. House rose wine is also very nice.

A group of us visited for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had the beef stew with focaccia from the lunch menu, the meat was very tender and stew was really tasty. Was a small portion but that was okay for lunch. Others in our group chose the walnut bread to go with the stew and were a bit disappointed as they got half a slice and when asked for more were told they didn't sell it as slices so they had to order a mixed bread basket- considering the Bakerie's main selling point is bread I thought this was a little strange. One of our group ordered the charcuterie board, this was overpriced at £15 for the very small portion- 3 choices of meat and the lamb kofta was tasteless, accompanying bread basket was nice. The bar is nice and barman very knowledgeable. Think we would visit agin but just for drinks.

Staff were as friendly (as usual), food was incredible (as usual), and it was all very good value for money (as usual)! We weren't on the wine on this occasion, but the total dining experience was brill. Bakerie really is one of my favourite restaurants in Manchester.

Went Sunday Roast & it was very tasty, the best one I've had in a restaurant for ages. You choose 3 items meat/veg from the menu to go with potatoes , Yorkshire & gravy (& can pay for extra too if hungry). The beef I had was delicious - pink, tasty & nicely cooked. The portion sizes good & service was spot on (it was quiet though). Also had a good pint of cask ale & nice glass of wine. A great experience overall.

The food was really great; we got two of Bakerie's lovely boards and a bottle of wine for £25. As a vegan, I was thrilled that they catered for me and provided a vegan board. However, the service was not great, with just one server catering for the whole restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime.

We have been a few times for Sunday lunch and it has always been lovely. I love the fact your veg comes in little dishes with your Sunday roast. However when we went today we took some family with us the service was slow we had to keep asking for drinks and to order. The veg apart from the potatoes didn't come in the lovely little dishes, the cream broccoli had no cream with it and the pudding was a bit of a let down. Didn't have ice cream with it when it said it came with it. Not the best of experiences this time!

We really enjoyed the experience. Restaurant is very chilled, with helpful and friendly staff who made sure we had everything we wanted. We had the meat board which was perfect. I liked the fact you could choose your meats and as you'd expect the bread was great....particularly enjoyed the walnut granary. Good selection of wine. We will go back next time in Manchester.

I was not very satisfied with this visit to Bakerie as one of the soups of the day was not ready and the one item off the menu that I really wanted was not available either. We were booked in at 1pm so you would expect all food to be ready and nothing to have yet run out.

We had booked online only about an hour before we wanted to eat and when we arrived, we were told that it might have been a bit too late. However, they managed to rustle up a table straight away. The staff were really friendly and accommodating and the food was fantastic. We had a great experience, thanks!

Lovely restaurant/bar that I have never been to before. Staff were really friendly and helpful and more importantly the food was really good. Well presented and reasonably priced. Also as my husband is vegan he was really impressed with the options available and on that alone I'm sure we will make a return visit.

Went on Mothers Day, had a lovely time. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Great selection of beers and wine and the menu offered a good selection of dishes, which also catered for vegetarians and vegans. Love the idea of the 'wine juke box'

The bakerie boards are delicious, as is the wine. We got 1 board between 2 people with some extra bread and some potato wedges, it was plenty of food and good value! But it's mostly about the wine. Only negative was that it was so very warm, which stopped us from staying longer.

Lovely food, something for everyone. Vine leaves on the vegan board, salt beef and chorizo on the meat board, halloumi on the cheese board and fish goujons on the seafood board all went down well with our party. Staff all very helpful. Thanks.

Fantastic, sublime stew. Have to recommend you order several bowls of stew and bread between you so you can try the range. I wanted better (and more) butter. The cheese board was indifferent and too cold. No decent puddings but I will forgive them.

Tasty food, nice selection of wines, warm and efficient service. Poor acoustics and loud music that's more foreground than background. So, if you hope to have a conversation with your dinner companion/s, you'll need to brush up on your lip reading.

Nice ambiance and atmosphere for a Saturday lunchtime. Cocktails were good and the Vegan platters were really tasty. I'm being picky but they would have benefited from an additional waiter/waitress to reduce waiting time (hence 5 out of 6!).

Unfortunately I had a very poor experience at Bakery. I have been before and loved it but this time - it was terrible. We arrived on time at 12pm (when the restaurant opened) on Mother’s Day. There was only us and another party in the restaurant so we were very surprised when we all received our Sunday roast lunches and they were all cold! We sent them all back and they were returned within 5 minutes - same plates and meals, just reheated!!! They didn't even give us a new meal! We had 3 different waitresses throughout the meal which was also strange. The food tasted nice but never the same when it has been reheated, also not sure how that goes against health and safety! My mums veg was not reheated and returned cold, the waitress said she could heat these again but my mum asked for a full new meal which was given, but the waitress wasn't happy about this. It was also a shame that you could hear the waitress shout through to the kitchen "they say it is cold", like it was our fault! Overall a very disappointing meal.

We had to wait a while before we placed our orders. We weren't asked what choice of bread we wanted we had to ask. The beef stew came without dumplings . All the food was tasty and the bread was really good. The waitresses were great.

Great Sunday lunch, you chose 3 items from the menu, the meat which comes with gravy, spuds and yorkshire pudding. And then two vegetables, the creamy leeks are yummy!
