Staff were super friendly and attentive.
We had the fish of the day, yellow fin tuna which we really enjoyed and it melted in the mouth.
For desert we enjoyed the chocolate bomb which was sublime.

Yet again the Ivy was lovely, brilliant staff, food was excellent and drinks were flowing. Great day had by all, which was made that little bit extra special by the Ivy Manchester.

Lovely time. Was a bit noisy for my taste. The music in background was not necessary but not too intrusive. One dish did appear with a long hair on it though! Obviously neither mine or my daughters as we have short hair! Or the waiters. I am sorry I cannot tell you his name but he was very apologetic and dealt with it swiftly. He was great and made a big impression on my daughter. It was her first experience of the Ivy. Food was great. Thank you Jo

Exceptional service ; the kind I love! Attentive, upbeat, considerate and with humour! First time attending the ivy for myself and friend, and as interior enthusiasts and customer service professionals we loved the ambiance, i loved the jazz! Small plates but very tasty.

Not the cheapest place in the world but for a special occasion you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere better. Lovely food and fantastic service makes it a place I'd happily return to in the future

Food and atmosphere great. Service started off really good with very attentive waiting staff but as the restaurant emptied out the staff were more interested in clearing those tables and setting them than serving us. Ended up waiting half an hour for my drink to arrive. Waited 20 mins to be served coffee. Chocolates that we ordered to have with the coffee never arrived and we had to try and catch someone’s attention to chase them.
Overall disappointing!

We ate in the brasserie. It's a beautiful restaurant - immaculately kept with excellent attention to detail.
Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.
My food was delicious and I particularly enjoyed the cheese soufflé. However, my partner is vegan and there wasn't really a great selection of dishes for him to choose from. Therefore, his experience of The Ivy wasn't as enjoyable as mine.
I would recommend The Ivy to most people, but not to Vegans.

Main meal took a long time to come was advised it was coming several times but didn’t arrive. Then offered bread and olives as it was taking longer. Was not an issue at all

We were a party of 3 for my birthday , I absolutely love The Ivy and the service, food and ambience is perfection.
Our only criticism of this visit was that we waited over an hour for our mains and I do think it would have been nice if they’d offered us a complimentary drink or dessert. However the staff are lovely and explained that the kitchen was behind and apologised several times.
We did still have a lovely time.

Service was impeccable and attentive. Wine is expensive - but I guess you know that before you go. Tempura prawns were amazing as a starter. Haddock fish cake could have done with a sauce with it - but when I mentioned it I was told that if I asked next time they would do it for me so we'll see ! I'd go back

The food and service were both excellent. Loved the decor, the style and buzz of the place. My only gripe was the cost of a bottle of wine at £42! Note to self …… remember your glasses!
