Ivy Asia, Spinningfields
The bar, which is open until late, holds a wide range of spirits including a Japanese whisky collection, as well as offering a drinks menu featuring both classic and inventive cocktails.
Seated 45 minutes after confirmed booking time, but only seated due to one of the party enquiring with a hostess.
Starters arrived one by one at around 5 minute intervals, which is fine-however some of the starters had to be enquired after on 2 occasions and arrived around 30minutes after initial starters.
Mains orders were placed and arrived over an hour after ordering, and after several enquiries a host approached our table who apologised and stated ‘obviously there’s gonna be money off your bill!’ Not what a group of 5 ladies wanted to hear to be honest at 23:00 still waiting for their mains. Just an open & honest apology and more complimentary manner would have been appreciated, we were celebrating a birthday-not trying to be cheapskates!
When the mains arrived, the teriyaki Salmon was cold, which was extremely disappointing after such a long wait.
The DJ played the most repetitive beat for the whole of our experience at too high a volume. I had to shout to converse.
Our waitress however was lovely & very attentive.
Been to the brassiere before s as nd loved it so tried the Asia, wasn’t disappointed. The whole experience was great,, can’t fault anything.
Amazing service, atmosphere, interior and food! Went for my husband's birthday and he even got a little Happy Birthday dessert too with a candle. The staff were so attentive and so many of them! We ordered and were only waiting about 10mins before food came out! Will definitely be back! Thank you
Was absolutely amazing, can't wait to go back popcorn shrimp was fantastic
I was recommended Ivy Asia from a friend and was impressed by the decor and service. Waiter introduced menu and that he was training which was absolutely perfect. Prawn toast is a must!
Always an excellent ambience, stunning surroundings.
Food and service equally as good !
Food was beautiful couldn’t fault a thing! staff were really polite and helpful, would highly recommend to everyone :) :)
Had been so looking forward to this... It did not disappoint either!
Atmosphere is pleasantly relaxed, service & attention equally too.
The food though, was absolutely superb, service very well drilled, no waiting & attainment from not just the waitress who initially took our orders, but, by all staff that passed.. there was no need to attract attention to order further drinks, as staff regularly asked if we had sufficient food and drinks.
All aspects of the menu & items we chose were perfectly presented & cooked to perfection.
We retired to the terrace bar following payment for a couple of cocktails & cannot praise both the food & service enough... so much so, we’ve already booked to return during our visit to the Christmas markets in a few weeks time... #exquisite 10/10
Amazing and the service was great too!. Thank you
It was nice but nothing special considering the price.
First time at the Asian restaurant here, after being impressed a few times in the Brasserie downstairs. The food is great, really creative and very tasty. Our service was awesome, great wine Lise and plenty of time in a buzzing place.
Absolutely amazing setting, the service was outstanding and food was delicious. Lovely for a treat or special occasion.
Had the please of dining here a number of times and it never disappoints, exceptional high quality food and the services outstanding. We was served my Tom in the Ivy Asia on Friday evening, Tom ensured we never had an empty glass and his recommendations for both food and drinks were on point.
Only down side is that the finer touches such as the beautiful napkin rings and tables accessories we not there .
Overall a nice evening.
We loved it
Great food, lively atmosphere, lovely staff, amazing floor! We'll be back.
Fabulous food , service and ambiance ,,, can’t wait to experience Ivy Asia again soon !
We went on a Sunday so Wasn’t as busy & it was perfect.. The food was amazing wine a little bit expensive but worth it.. wil definitely be back
Lovely place, service was perfect. Couple of our courses not to our taste. Had a great time anyway.
The Ivy Asia was our favorite place to got for. We had booking at 8:30, so we came around 8:35 and were told that we need to wait approximately 20min. We had event upcoming so it was important for us to sit there at 8:30. We were just standing in the middle of the restaurant till 9:15!!!! In my opinion in this case we have to be giving complementary drinks for our wait. After we finally got our table, made an order we had some issues with wrong food given. At the next table there was quite drunk company who broke glass of red wine, at first we didn’t pay attention to it. Than the broke another glass and in went straight to our table. My friend’s white shirt was covered in wine, the next table were laughing. When manager came, we were expecting some help, instead my friend were asked if he wants soapy water, while the next table were given free wine. Wtf?! We came there to relax, have some good time. Instead we were really disappointed by the service. Food was okay, I think it for better before, but probably it just atmosphere that was there mad food tasteless. Ruined our evening.
Great service, I got the wrong glass of wine but it was quickly rectified. The food, especially the salmon & the belly pork were stunning. The overall experience was superb in a superb room. Will definitely gets heading back.
Excellent food, outstanding service and enjoyable surroundings.
Amazing food. Service was fabulous and loved the whole experience. Can’t wait to return.
Had a wonderful evening celebrating our daughter’s 21st - everything was perfect!
Our waiter Tom was super!!!
Thank you for a fabulous and memorable celebratory dinner 🥂 xxx
very relaxed evening, great sharing plates, especially the duck dishes
Attentive staff-great atmosphere
Have been for drinks here a good few times and enjoyed it. I booked a table here as I needed somewhere that served food late. Truthfully, i hadnt heard great stuff about the food but booked anyway.
The food is overpriced, underwhelming, i dont even think half of it is fresh.
If you want to go for a good atmosphere the its great, but if you want decent food this is not the place. You should feel fulfilled when leaving a restaurant, not resentful that you even wasted your money.
Birthday meal treat of the mrs
Had an excellent evening with great food and service. We were allocated a booth and had great service from Tom our waiter and was well looked after by the lady maitre d.
Really delicious meal, lovely cocktails. Service was really great we had Mostern as our host and he was fab!
Great food and very friendly staff! Lovely surroundings.
Lovely venue, went for my wife’s birthday, starters were good, my main meal, steak, was inedible, tremendously over seasoned with salt.
Even the waiter agreed after tasting it.
Spoiled what was a lovely evening.
Will not return as there are plenty of other fine restaurants in Manchester.
Beautiful surroundings and excellent staff.friendly service and beautiful food!
Went for a special occasion and it didn’t disappoint. Impressed with the standard of everything. Have already recommended to friends.
If I was to criticise anything at all it was the fact that there were queues for the ladies toilets. Not sure if there just aren’t enough of these or there were issues with the toilets in the day
I have been previously and will definitely be returning
John our server was amazing and the food was outstanding
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Beautiful surroundings, great food and attentive staff. Thoroughly recommended
Lovely decor, friendly staff and delicious food. We had a great meal and would definitely eat there again.
spot on, was such a fabulous experience the atmosphere was perfect
Great food, service & ambience, would highly recommend!!
We came here for my boyfriends birthday and we absolutely loved everything apart from the prawn toast we ordered. I started eating mine which was mine but my boyfriend bit into his only to discover it was ice cold and the prawns inside were grey and undercooked. The rest of the food we ordered was beautiful however we were disappointed that a restaurant of such high standard are sending out undercooked food. The manager was apologetic and sent us a free glass of champagne each. I still feel we would go back as the other food was so amazing however just be careful with the prawn toast!
Excellent customer service, awesome cocktails and lovely atmosphere.
