We were really looking forward to visiting Menagerie, but disappointed as we had to wait 1 hour for our table (which we had pre-booked).

We didn’t get an update as to when the table would be ready, and we had to approach the staff to ask which wasn’t the service we expected. Further, when we did finally get sat down and ordered drinks, we had to wait again for drinks - which got sent to the wrong table!

The atmosphere was brilliant, and couldn’t fault the food but the experience and service we had was very disappointing considering we booked in advance, and travelled a long way!

Absolutely beautiful meal for my friends 40th at the weekend. Staff were attentive and lovely, the truffle pasta with parmesan was probably one of the best meals I've ever had! The entertainment was a nice little touch. We will definitely be back!

I enjoyed the drinks and the service was great. Attentive and professional. I enjoyed my choice of food but my date did not. The couple at the side of us did not eat much of their dish neither and that was the let down dish which was the jerk chicken. Authenticity was not expected however the dish overall was extremely weak, the lack of flavour made it a very poor dish. The noise level of the music was louder than expected but I understand that reflects the nature of the atmosphere. I’d return but only in a group setting.

I went for a working lunch alone on the day if my birthday and they sent over a lovely little surprise. A shot and a martini in a very cute music box. Lovely touch made me smile and my work during lunch that much more enjoyable.

I had the prawn linguine and wow it was incredible! I’d come back just for that! I also had the truffle mac and cheese however the longer l took to eat it the salt seemed to settle in the middle of the bowl and so was incredibly salt, despite that it was still really good! Service was great and it’s a very Instagrammable place if you’re into that haha

Having visited several times before (and on both occasions-brought large parties) I decided to book a table and invite some friends for my birthday. I booked a table for 10.30 and paid a £60 deposit (with a minimum spend of £200) I was told to ore order my drinks which I did, by email and received a response. Anyway we arrived around 10.20, our table wasn’t ready. We went to the bar around half an hour later we finally got given our table, with no drinks apparently hadn’t received our Order even though I had a response to my email order! So another half an hour without drinks and a very rude waiter, who actually said “shut her up she’s going to do my head in ! “ regarding my friend. I complained to the manager who did give us some free shots but the same waiter continued to serve us. A while later several girls were up dancing on the walk way my friend also got up to dance. Only to be carried out of the establishment for having no shoes on? Little far fetched. A simple put your shoes on or you’ll have to leave may have solved the issue. So degrading for her and her husband. The whole experience was ruined and obviously with this issue we didn’t have our drinks or our table for the time we was allocated.

We had a large booking sat next to us which wasn’t a problem until they started going on the stage messing around and they wernt told to get down making me feel uncomfortable.
Our starters got served after our main which is pretty pointless and the truffle ravioli I picked was cold when it was served.
I think the business is trying to do too much and should just stick to one thing either remain just a bar with a sophisticated club vibe or just a restaurant.

Staff very nice & food tasted great. Only thing was that the tables were very crammed together and music very loud. You had to shout to speak to each other which meant the tables on each side could hear your conversation. Would return, but prob only if going as a group of friends

Really enjoyed our night here.

Still decent atmosphere for a Monday night. Next time I would definitely come on the weekend though, as I would want to see the entertainment, and as it’s such a big space, it kind of needs to be full to create more of an atmosphere. Food though was really nice and service was friendly enough.

Myself and a few friends attended Menagerie for the bottomless brunch, the waiter was very friendly and made us feel very at ease. The food was delicious and the drinks were equally as good. We were very impressed and would all definitely return

I was abit disappointed, i had this booked for a birthday , i asked for a quiet table but got put inbetween 2 people on side to side? I also asked for a booth over the phone so this wasnt sorted ... ive never been here before so i didnt no what to expect either,
i felt like no one cared for what i asked for as there was so many empty seats but i got put infront of the bar? So always had people walking past and couldnt even speak to my partner as the neibours next to both sides can literally hear everything....
The table lay outs are awful, youd expect better lay outs for what your paying for! Feel like i spent all my money for what? I had a better meal at a pub the next day which was 5 times cheaper and had a table were i wasnt having noisy sally staring at my prawns for 2 hours.
I was looking forward to eating here as for 2 years ive always wanted to...
But yet im left very disappointed and upset, not a nice surprise and defo not romantic.

We really enjoyed our visit however we were left a little disappointed with the entertainment. We were there for an hour and a half and we only saw two five minute performances. We were expecting it to be more of a show with continous performances considering you have to pay extra for it.

Out of town visit to Manchester for weekend. Asked to pay £15 each to reserve table at the managerie. Menu looked great online. We would have walked out if we hadn't paid. A loud club/pub atmosphere with tables for people to eat on sectioned off from noisy drinking clientele. Could not hear my husband across table. Asked to move further in and was told it was noisier there due to entertainment. Dancing girls were good but on for a few minutes only so no effort made there. Food was nice but over priced. Waitress was absolutely fabulous. Side salad £4, 2 lettuce leaves and a few baby toms dressed in only oil? Cocktail was lovely but it should be at £12 ...that was a cheaper one! Ambiance if a rowdy pub with loud club music. Left with a hoarse voice and a headache. Go of you want to sit on your phone like most of the clientele were.

Seeing this place all over Instagram, it was the decor that caught my eye, as a lover of pretty things of course I had to visit! First time eating there & I must say I enjoyed it a lot, the food is lovely and the staff is really nice too. Personally I wish there was more options to choose from the cocktails but on the other hand there’s loads in the wine section. I wish the WiFi was working too but this is just me! Overall I would definitely come again and I have already recommended it to my friends.

Our friend sat waiting for 30 minutes at the table. She was not offered a menu or a drink. When we arrived our drinks were incorrect and so we had to ask them to change which was done quickly. The food was lovely and the shows were great.

We visited 9/12/19. Straight away greeted by a lovely hostess and taken to our table, which was a nice comfortable corner booth. The waitress took time on recommendations as it was our first visit and they did not disappoint! Great place to be whilst enjoy quality food and drinks.
