The quality of the food was excellent and provided outstanding value for money. The standard of service was great and our helpful waiter, Sam, demonstrated excellent knowledge of the menu and went out of his way to make sure our night out was an enjoyable and memorable experience.

The only thing wrong was they forgot to bring our shared starter but they did take it off the bill. It would not stop me going again though.

Hard to find enough superlatives for this place. The staff were amazing, friendly, competent and ready to go the extra mile. The decor was stunning. The music gave the terrace just the right vibe. Actually love that there was a DJ playing. The food was absolutely divine and the cocktails...well just see for yourself! Even the toilets were breathtakingly fabulous! I am so pleased that my daughters and I have been here and I cannot wait to come again!
Thank you for having us!

Everything was great except a rude very member of staff at the door and bouncer when i told him we had a table booked and our girlfriend was in there waiting for me his reply was sarcastically ‘ you ain’t fooling me ‘ let the whole thing down and set the night off to a bad start trying to belittle customers due to there gender

This was our third visit to the Ivy in about 18 months. The food and service have always been excellent but this time the music level was so loud we could barely hold a conversation. We were seated near an outside door which was constantly opening/closing and it was quite a cool evening. Some people were also using their phones to read the menu due to the low light level. This won't stop us coming back for one more try though....

The service was outstanding. Our waiter Sam was really friendly but extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made some fantastic recommendations. His passion and enthusiasm shined through and made a very refreshing change from service received in many other establishments. The decor and ambiance was awesome! The food was amazing - absolutely delicious. Dropped a star on the rating because the monkfish & prawn curry only had 2 prawns & 2 small chunks of monkfish & too much sweet potato - but it was very tasty and well presented.
It was our daughters birthday and she was presented with a miniature cake with no fuss and made to feel very special - perfect! A lovely touch.
Overall we loved the whole experience and can’t wait to visit again.

The staff at this venue were amazing on our visit, I cannot fault their service. We were sit in table in the middle but the staff were more than happy for us to move to somewhere quieter for our anniversary dinner. Food was amazing and so was the drink and we highly enjoyed the music being played. Such an enjoyable experience.

We went as a surprise for my friends 40th birthday treat, although we weren't allowed to take balloons we had a great time. The afternoon tea was beautiful and there was so much we couldn't eat it all! We all thought we would have to eat again later on but there was more than enough and it was all very fresh and tasty, warm scones too! I have already reccomend it to friends, a perfect afternoon out. The place is stunning, I didn't expect it to be so cool thank you for having us!

Afternoon Tea - food great, couple of things very disappointing.

Teabags not loose tea !

Tier's used for sandwiches etc, took them away when not finished, taking plates off and putting on table. Surely not a shortage of them.

One person drinks coffee , advised she was limited to two cups !

Although staff were great, you had to get their attention for drinks etc.

This is my second time at The Ivy. The surroundings are beautiful and the service is amazing! However on both occasions I’ve been, the quality of the food was a big let down, I found my meals were tasteless and wasn’t worth the price. The food is the main part of a restaurant and so much attention is paid to how everything looks which is great because I love to recommend it to people if they want to go to somewhere nice, and have an experience, however I think more attention needs to be paid to the food. I’m a big lover of food and will give The Ivy another go in the future with an alternative dish, but if that doesn’t go down well then I’d probably only recommend people to go for drinks/dessert.

Thank you so much

The food and service were really good. The fires were on when we arrived and it was stifling. It cooled down when the fires were turned off. The big downside was that my chair was constantly being kicked by people moving up and down the aisle.

The decor and service are good. The food is at most fair for the price paid. The most expensive dish with lobster, didnt have much taste and the flesh was hard. Please review this dish.

This is the second visit to the ivy Manchester, the first was in the Brasserie which we didn’t think could be beaten but the roof garden was something else, the food it’s self was amazing no fault could be found. The waitress was very friendly but professional and the surroundings were fantastic such a lovely ambience. It was the first time our friends had been and they were also very impressed we will definitely be booking again when we visit Manchester in December.
