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.

Great place for a night with friends, food was fantastic and the music was brilliant.

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

Always have a great time in Menagerie! My favourite place to eat and drink and dance. No other place like it. The food wasn’t as good as the other times I have been but still good. I would still highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back.

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 😀

The food was just incredible! Cannot fault it atall!! Unfortunately we had a waiter who obviously didn’t want to be there! Everything was a hassle for him - he was absent for much of the time and very difficult to get hold of. It was made very obvious when our time had come to an end at the table - despite having ordered more drinks. However we could have been finished in a timely manner had our drinks arrived on time etc.
On the booking I had highlighted how the table was booked for a special occasion, yet we were made to feel like second class citizens!
The place, the entertainment and the food were all just perfect, however we were poorly let down by the service and wouldn’t recommend the place because of this! (Even if the burger was the best I had ever eaten!!) I was very disappointed and really felt as though I had let down the girl we were celebrating! Such a shame!

Beautiful place just not the right spot for a romantic night out. More of a night club vibe than a restaurant. Food was great. Service excellent. Just tough to have a conversation across the table.

The service was so bad , our waiter wanted us to leave the second we got there . We ordered a bunch of things to share and he was like is that only thing ur ordering and kept asking what name the reservation was on like a hundred times and then he gave us our bill before we finish our food

I'm honestly so disappointed of the service, it felt like the service was bad just because of the way we looked

I always dine menagerie even for events like graduation and birthdays but never experienced a horrible evening like this

I can’t thank the staff enough for letting me have the bird cage for my graduation, it really did make the experience extra special! The restaurant even had graduation hats for photos!
Can’t wait to go back on a weekend to experience the live entertainment.

Went for my birthday, there was a problem redeeming a published offer of a free bottle of prosecco. After much to-and-fro'ing eventually received the offer. Not once did anyone check we wanted anything more and left after 1.5hours to another bar for cocktails. Wasn't the normally high standard of service.

We went to Menagerie on a Saturday afternoon, despite the restaurant/ bar area being very busy it did not intrude on our meal. The staff were attentive and friendly. It was overall a great meal, music was great and the atmosphere was lively.

Brilliant night out and a great experience. The food is amazing and the entertainment is outstanding and really different to most places. The staff where good but considering it wasn't that busy they weren't very attentive and we probably would have spent more on drinks if offered or could get their attention at times.

The overall experience was ok. We had been recommended via Facebook to try the pre-theatre menu. When we told the waiter this we were told basically we could have the cheapest items on the menu and a small glass of wine. The Facebook page stated the only things off the menu were steaks and lobster and there to drink bottled beer and soft drinks were included. It took a good 20 minutes to get this sorted which in the end we were told we could order what we wanted. Luckily the concert we were attending started quite late so we were not in a great hurry, however my idea of a pre-theatre menu is something you can order, eat and pay the bill in an hour. Not really the case here. The place is ok, but there are better close by that have that edge over here. Wouldn’t say it was bad but nothing outstanding and wouldn’t pay full price

The starter and main course were superb - very disappointed with the dessert as not much thought had gone into it for the price. Music was rather loud when trying to have a conversation with friends at the table. Cocktails were good but rather pricey!

Loved our first visit to Menagerie. The atmosphere is infectious and the food was fantastic. The only critique would be that we have to pay a £5 per person deposit for the entertainment, which is fine but our table was by the entrance and we had to get up to go and see the dancers. Given the mandatory charge this was abit disappointing.
