Initially they squeezed 5 of us on a 4 person table, but were moved to more suitable seating/table on request.
Food was amazing, service was fabulous.
The performances were ok, could do better myself as a pole instructor.
Would definitely go again

Booked my and my sisters birthday didn’t no i had to pay a £15 per person deposit when i booked but still did would have just loved to know beforehand rather than being set a text saying i needed to pay it within 48hours food was really nice and our table was amazing how every was right near the bar and once the bar got busy everyone was watching us eating and standing around our table which was not nice service was ok but our waitress did forget about us this maybe just because she was busy or couldn’t get too us asked for a birthday plate which they totally forgot about was just a little bit disappointed overall but the food was amazing

Overall my daughter and her friend enjoyed their meal but they were made to feel like second class citizens from the minute they entered the restaurant by the front of house team and also the doormen. I had booked a table for 6, 15 year old girls for my daughters birthday. On reading the T's the table would be reserved until 6.30pm and they had to be out of the restaurant by 7pm. I booked the table for 5pm. I dropped my daughter off along with 2 of her friends at 4.45pm. They were advised that the table wasn't ready for them but were not given anywhere to sit or stand whilst they waited for the table; nor were they offered drinks whilst they were waiting. They were rather rudely told to move from where they were stood as they were causing a fire hazard. They were finally shown to their table at 5.10pm. The table service was good and the girls enjoyed their mocktails and meals overall. The Chicken Caesar salad was a let down as the chicken was dry and overcooked; but all other dishes we well received.
Overall, I am very disappointed that my daughter was made to feel like she didn't have a right to dine at Menagerie. If you do not want to host under 18's then don't. Do not however take money off 15 year old's like any other paying customer but treat them inferior to others.

I was very disappointed with this place. On social media the place looked amazing. However the whole ambience, service and food was very disappointing. We couldn’t hear ourselves talk.

AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!

Service and food was so bad I actually left this review whilst sat in the restaurant for my food. Everything was very delayed and on top of it very loud it was like a nightclub for a place where I’m meant to enjoy some nice food.

Another dirty tact at this restaurant was flies around the plates!

Waiting times around 30 minutes for a pre-booked reservation, ignorant and rude staff, waiters and waitresses just hover around without providing adequate service.

I have not been this appalled by a restaurant in Manchester.

We went to menagerie for our sons GCSE celebrations, he’s been wanting to visit for some time. He loved it, we went on a Thursday afternoon so it wasn’t too busy and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Excellent value for money, the food was delicious and the staff were amazing we will definitely be back again 👌🏻

My friend and I haven’t met up for a while and wanted a treat. We wanted to go somewhere with a nice ambiance that was modern and decorated to a high standard where we would get excellent customer service. Menagerie delivered all this and at an accessible price. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you to all the staff who seemed to really love their jobs. We felt more like friends than customers.

Booked for my birthday and asked for a table so we could see the show, but we were right next to the kitchen in the corner and right near the speaker, the servers and also a lot of hen parties grinding up against us.
No one told us there was a charge if you didn’t have starters so we were charged £20...
food was nice but my boyfriends fish and his chips were so so so salty.
Cocktails sometimes a little slow to arrive, some things arrived and some things not.
Show was great but very slow in between
It was my birthday and they put a candle on my dessert but nothing complimentary
Fun atmosphere and most of the food and drink nice but bit too noisy and not the best seating

The best place we’ve ever been to. The value was so good for the price of the place and we both really enjoyed the food too. A 100% go to place when you go to Manchester.

Some of the entertainment was good but was blocked by people standing in the bar area.

So disappointed, it was my daughters last birthday with us. as she gets married soon. As we were entering we were asked for id! Knew nothing bout it.he wasn’t gonna let us in. The waiter charged us for service charge I didn’t want to pay as I requested clearly when I booked wanted good food and to make it special. Asked for sparkles and to sing happy birthday, nothing waiter got annoyed as we didn’t pay service charge as it was optional.to be honest I’d rather get my full refund. I will be taking this complain ahead.

I didn’t get the 20% that was promised they knew nothing about it so I paid full amount which I’m not happy about. We were offered someone else’s food then waited for ours. The waitress chewed her chewing gum the whole time we were served so all in all on a birthday occasion this wasn’t the best. I have rated it good because the male waiter did his best to look after us.

Food was amazing, staff were friendly and attentive. As we had a bottomless brunch, the service was great with our glasses constantly being topped up. The Nutella and marshmallow french toast is unreal! Would recommend to anyone and we will definitely come again.

We went on a Wednesday as we were in Manchester round the corner for my husbands birthday . There’s was only two other tables with people on. The music was mega low. So atmosphere was too quiet . I had had a text about a birthday plate for my husband which I said yes and never came or mentioned. And as place so quiet I couldn’t simply mention it with out him hearing , so no point in offering and saying you had made a note of if server didn’t know , the food was delicious and the service was great. I would recommend but maybe for a weekend when there is an atmosphere maybe.

Went for the bottomless brunch and the whole experience, food and service was excellent. The manager Joel personally took care of my order as I have a nut allergy. The food was delicious and portion sizes were good, the bottomless drinks were nicely paced and the waitress Danielle ensured our drinks were replenished when needed. I think I’m going to be a regular 😀
