Overall enjoyable. Due to covid was asked to choose dessert early, pay bill whilst still eating. This was fine ,just didn’t appreciate 4 staff interrupting me telling me I need to leave at 10. Maybe don’t let people book later than 8pm for this reason ? It just put a damper on my evening.
Also more sanitisers on visible display, I didn’t see any and didn’t go straight to the table either was sent in lift to wait in upstairs bar.
Maybe it will be somewhere I try in future but not during covid. Book an early slot to avoid my experience.

Good food, excellent service from the waiter... Lighting is as always very poor by night making it difficult to read the menu and the table a bit small really.
Finally, it is , as ever, expensive...

The Ivy Manchester is the epitome of class. From the doorman on arrival to the final farewell customers are made to feel special and welcome. The restaurants themselves are a sight to behold with the beautiful decor and lighting. The lounge classic background music adds to the vibe. Food is delicious and service impeccable. Highly recommend

Having read recent reviews I’m somewhat surprised. Food was amazing service outstanding. The only negatives is the price of still water, the service charge especially if you don’t feel confident to ask for it to be removed and the lighting. However would still return and recommend

Look at their Insta to see the demographic of the clientele The Ivy love.

So excited to go but so let down by the food and service.

I know fish can swim but never knew they swim in oil!

Never going again.

We thought there was insufficient spacing between most tables in these times of coronavirus. A starter of tempura prawns and squid was quite minimal and had only two prawns. Mains were enjoyable but not quite warm enough.

Wonderful experience. Attention to detail from arrival to leaving was second to none. Our waiter was a delight, courteous, helpful and very knowledgeable.
Food was perfection, steak cooked as requested. I could not fault anything about the day.
It was my granddaughters birthday and the cake and candle completed the day.
I would certainly book again.

The food was vile - the Chicken Melinase was undercooked. Overpriced for what it was. Not a large variety on the menu.

Very good atmosphere and feel, didn’t seem pretentious and felt very welcomed, only criticism would be the fact there was no sweet/cake/pudding for vegans only fruit and yoghurt (and £8.50 at that), there are loads of vegan versions available of the classic desserts in other restaurants and cafes so there’s no reason why chefs of your standard can’t be creating similar things. I only say this because the birthday girl was a vegan and she had no exciting option for dessert. Other than that it was very enjoyable.
