    The service was consistently good from every staff member we encountered. I was uncertain on which menu items to choose but was offered confident and informative advice which was appreciated. The food itself did not disappoint with complex and well balanced flavours. The only potential improvement could have been slightly more space between tables but other than that this was a faultless evening and we will certainly return!

    Ordered 5 full English breakfast’s … we were not offered a choice of preferred eggs so all got fried which nobody wanted. Each plate had an item missing which was very bizarre! Once table was cleared of food plates we were going to order coffees but no waitress ever came back to us so after 15 minutes we gave up as we had somewhere to be! Not the usual standard of service and food we have always experienced in the past!

    I love the Ivy the food and decor are beautiful. The staff can not do enough for you, they do an outstanding job of looking after you. Breakfast here is no more expensive than at a regular cafe. It feels like such a treat ! I would recommend that everyone should go and try it you won’t be disappointed.

    My food intolerance was handled poorly. I ordered fishcake with pea puree and when the waitress asked any intolerances, i advised that i could not tolerate cream, She came back with my meal with the fishcake and a small pot of garden peas as the pea puree had cream in. At no point did she ask me if i would like to choose an alternative meal that did not contain cream nor did she ask if garden peas on the side was what i would like, it just arrived without explanation. I expect a pea puree is completely possible without cream but this was not offered to me as an option. So the fishcake was very dry with no sauce and was not what i was expecting., i left feeling very dissatisfied.

    The food and the venue is really great, but we noticed some of the staff are quite cocky. Our waiter made a few sarcastic comments which we felt were unnecessary and slightly hostile. I’ve been to some of the best restaurants in Manchester and the service (and attitude of the staff) really makes the experience enjoyable. It’s not just about being attentive, it’s about being respectful, kind and helpful and it’s not just the words but the tone of voice too. For example I asked our waiter if he knew whether they would have space upstairs for us to have a drink after dinner and he said he can’t see through the ceiling. Overall the experience was ok but would have been much nicer if we had been made to feel more welcome.

    I wear hearing aids so I informed the restaurant when I booked they gave us a lovely table in the quieter section of the restaurant against a wall , the food was delicious , we had scallops as a starter and they were gorgeous, we had sirloin steak for our main which was lovely , no sweet though as we were stuffed so a lovely Irish coffee went down well, the waitress couldn’t do enough for us we were very very happy with everything
