Ivy Asia, Spinningfields
Wonderful atmosphere, live sax player, really fun and great buzz - beautiful interior and you can tell the food has been cooked with the taste in mind.
My wife and I really enjoyed the setting, it looked great, the food was good and the staff where excellent.
excellent service & ambience
great choice on tapas/sharing menu
staff - very friendly & helpful
Amazing experience, we will return!
Food was very tiny portions , no wonder the waiter advised you to order more small expensive plates because the main plates are way too small to be even considered as a main.
We came for the reputation of this place but the food fell short in terms of value for money. Dj too loud especially for 6.30-8pm for dinner
Whilst my food was really good, there were some in our party who were disappointed.
The waiter explained that the food comes when it is ready and it all comes at different times, but if you order rice with skewers, you really want your rice at the same time, not 25 minutes later.
The food was expensive, so good for a special occasion but not somewhere I would go regularly.
The DJ was great, but the music was overly loud at times and I couldn't hear what some of our party was saying.
The cocktails were amazing, I would highly recommend trying them.
The chef made me an amazing chocolate birthday cake and the decor was really well thought-out and eye-catching.
I liked it, but didn't love it. Some of the dishes were lovely but the black cod, calamari and Gyoza with the cold foam on top were pretty tasteless. Noise levels too high for an afternoon. I'm sure the spinningfield masses will love it.
Absolutely exceptional in every way, the service, food atmosphere was amazing, can't wait to go back.
Have eaten at the Brasserie and Ivy Asia. Both occasions were great. The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. I am a vegetarian and there were a couple of meals on the menu for me (although they don’t have a v symbol next to vegetarian food which is a shame as it’s not always obvious if suitable for vegetarians)
The waiting staff were very attentive and helpful. The Ivy itself looks amazing and has a really friendly fun ambience.
Amazing! Loved it and can’t wait to go back!!
Manchester traffic meant we were 45 mins late. After calling ahead staff were very good to keep our table. Time was then short before our theatre appointment so staff were very helpful at helping suggest food which could be available quickly and were generally very attentive.
Food was good, not amazing but maybe we ordered indifferently. Prices fair.
The place is brand new and very eye catching. Really quite impressive.
Apparently on thurs through Sunday there is a DJ. This maybe fine later on at but at 6pm it was intrusive and very loud. Other diners clearly felt the same as we overheard complaints and the music was turned down to comfortable levels.
Will definitely go again and maybe order better.
Great service. Ok food. Would visit again.
We had a fabulous meal and drinks for my partners birthday in Ivy Asia and in the bar on the top floor following the meal. Great food, cocktails and friendly / welcoming service from everyone we met. Would definitely recommend.
Everything from the moment you entered this beautiful restaurant was lovely! Greetings,food,cocktails,service,ambiance. Would recommend just for the experience.
Beautiful restaurant with exceptional service, décor and choice of food. Food on the expensive side compared to similar quality/food choice establishments and the bar was a little on the raucous side for a posh night out. The choice of beers was limited and pricey for a 330ml can and nothing on tap. Overall a good experience for a special night but not a regular choice venue.
It was a lovely experience. The best part for me was the women’s bathroom! The overall decor at the Ivy Asia was amazing and felt that you have been transported to another era. Would definitely go back!
The whole experience was excellent. Great decor and ambience. Service impeccable. Food quality and value really, really good. Will definitely return.
Simply excellent. Quality food, quality service - a must try
The Ivy has just opened with three different restaurants. The Asian cuisine was good with a very lively ambience. Not a place to chat. This is not helped by having a bar on each reastaurant floor. There are too many staff milling about without direction.
Just excellent!!! The decor was fabulous the food and cocktails were amazing ☺️☺️☺️
It was the first weekend of opening so perhaps we had an unfortunate visit. Music was loud - louder than the one in London. People at the bar were very close to the tables. The tables are in rows so there is a LOT of people traffic including servers, waiters, managers and security up and down throughout the meal. Quite difficult to hear each other speak over dinner.
Food - Was very average. Arguably overpriced and too salty.
Food and service was excellent my only criticism is the open bar policy. We had a table reserved and would of liked to have had a drink at the bar before being seated. Due to the bar being open to the public all the seats were taken and there was nowhere to have a drink. After we were seated at our table and throughout our dinner random people (non diners) came in and out of the bar with shopping bags, not really the dining experience we expected. When your bill is £200 for two people, I’d rather not share my dinner with a group of people drinking beer with their coats on and laden with primark shopping bags. Such a shame because the food was great, think we’ll be sticking to the Brasserie in future.
Well that was different ! It was like stepping into a time machine that transported you into a space full of fantasies and pleasure zones 😈 did I love it ? Oh yes , will I go back again 100% yes . Why ? Because it’s the only place you get to eat with all of your senses I know ...hurting 😍 atul
Every bit as good as you'd hope. Lives up to The Ivy name. Staff excellent, venue beautifully crafted, food outstanding. I'd pass on the cocktails, they're pretty standard fayre, but the rest of the experience is well worth it.
fantastic food, and service. great menu in the Asian section.
