The service was great, very attentive. Was nervous about going out during a pandemic but the restaurant has implemented social distancing measures which put us at ease. Food was lovely and not too expensive, we thoroughly enJoyed our first visit, so much so that we have booked to go back again in September.

The waiters were amazing, so friendly and looked after us so well. Can’t remember the waiters name but he was from Liverpool and he was such a joy. I am a regular visitor and due to the waiter this was the best experience. Thank you

Food and service was wonderful. We were asked to vacate our table after 2 hours but this hadn't been mentioned prior which was disappointing.
But overall a great place

It was nice and quiet, we felt relaxed rather than stressed as we would have been if it was crowded and noisy.
The gentleman who served us was very polite and bubbly.

The food was served Fast. We weren’t fans of the drinks though.

There was a young female in a black suit who gave several winks at my partner during the night. I was amused but he was quite uncomfortable.
As a result from this minor issue my partner doesn’t wish to return.
I do understand why he didn’t feel comfortable, it is quite disrespectful.

However, I may return with friends in future.

We had a lovely time. The staff was very nice and helpful. There was not everything in the menu. We could not order beef steak.
I had the Wednesday menu offer which includes a desert (chocolate bomb) which was not included in the bill, costing 4 pounds extra. We didn’t complain but I just thought it would be added to the menu on offer. Anyway, we had a fantastic time and we are looking forward to book again. Many thanks

The table was laid when we arrived and we weren't given an option of disposable menus or an App. The staff were not in masks or visors. Only sign of pandemic was a small bottle of sanitiser on table and a row of empty tables, although some of the other tables were not 2m apart (we were). No questioning as to whether diners are from now than one household. This is the tension between Greater Manchester additional lockdown and "Eat Out to Help Out ".

Having said that, we did stay and eat and the food was delicious.

Enjoyed the experience, helpful staff who helped make the occasion special. Food was delicious apart from the truffle and Parmesan chips , obviously frozen chips and very greasy.

The ivy is a pretty venue and the staff are friendly. The food was extremely disappointing. There was no finesse with the presentation and was overpriced. We had some olives, when I say some, we had in total 4 olives! So that was almost £1 per olive! The starter of tempura prawns and squid was presented in a bowl stuffed with a napkin to fill it out? I would rather it be placed prettily on a plate. I had the cod, it was nicely cooked and came with tender stem broccoli that wasn’t tender at all. My daughter had steak and had asked for medium/ medium rare as it was rib eye and that fat needs to be rendered . It came blue, cold and full of fat.
It was so disappointing as this was a birthday celebration that my daughters were treating me to. There are so many fabulous restaurants in Manchester that serve beautiful food. I believe the ivy needs to up its game in order to compete

The staff really made the meal! Loveliest people, keen to help out however they can. 3 of us has the burger and all felt it was a little bit dry in the middle, but the duck parfait starter was lovely.

Went for a birthday and they really made a fuss! Will definitely be back to try out the ‘Asia room’ because it looks incredible in there. We were in the garden but in the top floor which was also stunning.
