I was very happy with the food & drinks, there is a few things that let Menagerie down. I booked online mentioned it was my boyfriend's 21st asked for a bottle on the table and the catwalk room.. when we arrived they sat us at the bar and no bottle at the table, no one called me about my booking to ask what bottle or anything. I asked to move and they moved us to a booth where only 2 out for the 4 of us could see the catwalk for the entertainment and said that the other tables were resevered even though I had booked to. The service was ok, few messed up things drinks and food. I would happily go again just need to book for after 7:30pm as thats when the entertainment starts.

As a huge fan of Housewives of Cheshire , I had seen it on show. Went for Sunday lunch as hangover cure after a party night in Manchester with my bestie who I was staying with . Beautiful venue, decor etc. Opted for Sunday lunch rather than bottomless Brunch as couldn't face alcohol. Roast Beef will all trimmings was fabulous. Lots of carbs and fresh veg . Perfect. Had sticky toffee pudding....custard was a little mean but I'm sure I could have asked for more . Service was first class. Attentive and friendly. I would love to return and sample the cocktails and entertainment. Some great Insta perfect backgrounds too !

We arrived and were seated at a table with a sofa on one side and regular chairs on the other. Therefore we were seated approx 6 inches higher than our friends. We asked to be moved and we were quickly moved to a booth. We ordered and the starters arrived literally 5 mins later. Too soon for me! We then waited around 45 mins for main which was average at best. It was very loud even without the “show” music but not so you couldn’t hear everyone. The volume increased when the show segments started. I can’t really comment on the value of this or quality as from our booth you couldn’t see anything and it was then too loud to hear anyone. All the staff were great and drinks were good and reasonably priced. I just don’t get the concept if some of the diners can’t see the performance.

Was disappointed that I wasn't informed prior to our arrival that the Afternoon Tea I had booked back in October wasn't available. Despite emailing the restaurant just the day before to confirm.
So ended up paying more than expected for food but it was really good quality and plenty for 2 people to share (we ordered 4 dishes from the smaller plates section of the menu).
Staff were incredibly friendly especially our waiter.
Seats were torn in places but were still comfortable and the place itself was lovely and clean.

From booking to deposits being paid not a great experience. Doormen rude. Greeting fine
Food and service was fine. Just place , ambience or lack of it. Felt like a seedy nightclub with social media influencers gyrating with literally no clothes on and forgot the underwear! Not really a place for couples or friends that want a catch up and fabulous service and atmosphere. It was just wrong on all levels. This restaurant need to decide whether it’s a restaurant, or nightclub.

We came for our yearly friends Christmas get together, we had the pleasure of watching dancers, fire acts and singers performing to the greatest showman. The atmosphere was electric a great vibe around the restaurant. We ordered a selection of food from the menu and we where very impressed. The food was amazing. The staff where really friendly and very efficient especially as it was very busy. We will be back again. Loved this place.

I booked a table on the 7th of December at 8:15, I had read reviews online about wonderful atmosphere and entertainment and wanted this for my boyfriend's birthday. After several phonecalls back and forth with members of staff I managed to pay the deposit for the table and was very excited to go.

On arrival we were seated in the bar area or what I would call a night club. This was not specified on the booking (that we wouldn't be sat in the restaurant). We had a sofa and 2 chairs. I asked the waitress if we could move away from the loud music as we couldn't hear eachother speaking and she said no sorry. In order to make the best of the situation I asked another member of staff (I clear clearly unhappy and disappointed) if we could move the tables so we could sit at one table with the two chairs rather than the sofa as I can't eat dinner on the sofa. He was very unhelpful and stated we couldn't move the tables.

It was clear I was very disappointed, the member of staff that dealt with us had a very unhelpful attitude, and stood around the front desk laughing with other members of staff. This to lead to us leaving, before we even ordered a drink.

I am extremely disappointed in the atmosphere and customer service. I sent this in an email directly to the restaurant requesting a deposit and no response.

Went for lunch on a Sunday, the service was outstanding and food was fantastic! We had a few plates while waiting-the miso butter was gorgeous and shared a number of plates for the main like the tacos and sushi. I didn’t catch the waiters name but he was really helpful, he made sure that we were ready for each course before calling it from the kitchen so we didn’t feel in any way rushed, I’ll definitely be back!

Arrived at the door. Bouncer said hello. Not tonight lads. We asked why? He said because you can’t come in without a booking. We replied we have a booking and he said you can go in. We went in at 1am and the bar waited stopped serving drinks. Pointless journey from Liverpool too Manchester for previous booking and Menagerie booking.

Lovely decor, very beautifully done and super cool. Shame about the noise level, myself and my friend couldn’t even hear each other speak. The ridiculously loud music coupled with the screaming and howling of the hen party behind us pretty much ruined the night. Not the 6.15 chilled dinner we expected. The cowgirl ‘cocktail’ also left a lot to be desired, especially for £10! It was essentially a small glass of Prosecco with a dried flower in it.

Lovely staff and very attentive. The atmosphere and decor of the place was great. The food was yummy and the drinks were flowing, it was definitely a ‘bottomless’ brunch. The one thing I would like to see on the menu is vegan options on the bottomless brunch menu but apart from that my friends and I had a fabulous time!
