Made the reservation the night before my visit, wasn't really planning on going here but so glad we did. Everyone at the restaurant was so helpful and friendly, starters, main were really nice but the best thing for me was the dessert, I'd highly recommend the chocolate cake. Thank you to all the staff for a nice evening.

We stayed a week in Manchester last July, this restaurant is just around the corner of King Street Townhouse where we have stayed, went here for lunch, the food was amazing but service was really slow. Also not a kid-friendly restaurant.

Visited this restaurant early evening with a business colleague for a meeting Good service as the staff found us a quiet corner so we could talk in peace Food was pleasant, not the best but good quality for the price All in all a nice place to grab a bite after work

Visited Manchester for 3 nights mid July. We ate at Avalanche for the the first time last time we were in Manchester and after a great night decided on a return visit. Wished we'd never bothered. It was mid week and despite being really quiet the service was terrible. We were seated and had to wait ages for drinks and... More

So 7 of us came here on our works do the other week. We sat at the bar for 10 mins whilst we waited for our table which was not a problem. When we got to our table we ordered another round of drinks.. These took around 15 mins to make their way back to our table, arriving in dribs... More

birthday treat, had drinks/cocktails before meal at bar area. was then seated at a table. my girlfriends cutlery was dirty, a member of staff took notice and swapped it straight away. pricey menu with slightly above average food. wasn't very busy so quiet atmosphere. 10% service charge also. Overall satisfied but probably wouldn't go again.

Really really disappointed with this restaurant. Where do I begin. Well for starters we booked for 9:30 and our table wasn't ready. We went to the bar and it took them 20 minutes to do 8 drinks and then they forgot one. We eventually went to our table at almost 10pm. We got menus and ordered more drinks. It took... More

Visited Avalanche for the first time on Friday on a Living Social deal. We were promptly welcomed at the door and shown to our seats. The deal consisted of Bruschetta for two and a Chateaubriand and sides to share with a glass of wine each. The food was served in good time - not too fast but just right so... More

Bringing a slice of Italy back to the building that housed Manchester's first Italian restaurant, Avalanche is also inspired by the fine dining establishments of Paris and Monte Carlo. Introducing an Italian trattoria concept, Avalanche conjures an authentic Italian vibe. Masters in fish and seafood courses, the Avalanche menu boasts fresh halibut and lobster. Boasting a stunning chandelier and sleek artwork, Avalanche is a spacious and high class eatery.
