Booked dinner for two , lovely friendly greeting , drinks in the bar , sat down on time . Main course was sent back as just about warm , they couldn’t apologise enough and fresh food with fresh sides arrived after 10 mins ,lovely and hot .
I’ve been lucky enough to eat in a lot of good restaurants and I would definitely recommend and go again as the food was very good , but the quality of service was fabulous.

A brilliant experience from start to finish- our waitress Laura was fantastic and attentive. The food was delicious, and we were then able to move from the rooftop restaurant into the terrace and enjoy drinks in front of the fire. Highly recommend!

We had a fabulous time celebrating my daughter’s 18th at the Ivy’s roof garden - as the daylight dwindled and the cosy lights and fires came into their own it created a perfect ambience. We started with a beautifully chilled glass of champagne. The afternoon tea itself was excellent in the main but a couple of things could be improved upon. The sandwiches were delicious and the scones with clotted cream and jam sublime. The cake was lovely but I’m not a fan of sugary pieces on cakes, the chocolate pot was a fun idea but taste wise wasn’t great and the trifle was ok but the flavour could be better. The tea served in silver pots looks classy but the tea itself tasted slightly metallic and not quite right and the handle gets too hot when trying to pour it. I would go again as the atmosphere was very special and the service exemplary. Thank you for such a lovely afternoon.

The service was great. My waiter (Danielle, Italian guy) was looking after me and my guest really good. All the staff were giving us a great customer service and the food was amazing. I will go back for sure.

I really enjoyed my meal. However I found the food wasn't the best standard for the price. And I found the service charge was extortionate.

Good food in a nice setting. Price point was too high likely due to the unnecessarily high number of waiters, front of house, DJ and bar staff (many of whom were stood around bored).

Tables are quite close together I went for a romantic special dinner with my husband but felt we could not really talk without the other tables around us hearing our conversations and vice versa

Fantastic venue a real treat for the eyes from the outside to the interior. Ivy Asia looks amazing and cocktails are lovely. we set up a tab and took it to the roof garden. 3 cocktails, a bottle of wine, nibbles and two mains with a side came to £100 which is great. would highly recommend.

Had a beautiful brunch on Saturday 30th November, this was my second visit, my first was for a friends party in your private room. Eggs Royale were beautiful, smoked salmon great flavour, the chips, real and with skins on, lovely surprise! The Ivy Champagne was also lovely with our choice of brunch and after some shopping we came back to the bar at the Brassiere and enjoyed some cocktails and two bottles of the Ivy Champagne. The staff were all lovely too, in particular a lovely girl on reception with lovely hair tied up in a bun as well as a lovely girl in the roof top garden from Derry. James and a lovely Italian guy, sorry l can’t remember his name were also very personable at the Brassiere. Thanks, looking to book again soon.

Booked a table for 3.30 for 3. Arrived and they couldn't find the booking. Eventually did. Went up to the restaurant at 3.30 and no table ready. Told to wait in the bar area. Twice I asked when the table would be ready. Sat down at 3.55 by the open door. Asked to be moved and we were. From then on all was good. Our 2nd visit so disappointed as first time everything was spot on. It won't put us off but could do better.

We have watched this restaurant being built on previous trips to Manchester, but this is the first time we have dined there. We chose the Roof Garden for lunch and it was absolutely FANTASTIC - the food was divine and our server was charming, helpful and attentive. We are vegetarian, so the separate vegan and vegetarian menu was a great help, giving us a wide choice. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wanted a special dining experience, and can't fault the service or food. It's a pity we live in Cumbria and are unable to vist The Ivy more often.
PS We left one of our shopping bags under the table and received a phone call to say that it would be waiting for us at reception when we were able to call back. What service!
