Afternoon tea over priced for quality. Green juice bizarre addition. Had better afternoon teas really just paying for the name.

Disappointing visit. Food arrived after a long wait before cocktails. We returned the food and cocktails were hurried up. Drinks fine, food arrived after about another 25 mins. Although promised to be cooked from scratch again, tasted and looked as though it had sat under heat lamps. Fish normally lovely firm, big white flakes, chips perfect. This time fish, dry separated, chips ‘hard’. Staff were great though, drinks deducted from bill as a gesture. On reflection we should have sent the food back, but with a starving 12 year old, you know the drill! Overall very disappointing-not up to the previous high standards we’ve enjoyed here many times before. A shame.

Beautiful dining experience, The Ivy in Manchester is classy with attention to detail, the staff are attentive, polite and knowledgeable but not in an obtrusive way. They know the menu and make good recommendations. The ambience is relaxing, special and absolutely worth visiting for a special occasion with family or lunch with friends . The food and desert were delicious.

Food and service was wonderful. Drinks and decor fab too. Very cramped though, could have done with a bit more space between us and the neighbouring tables…felt like we were dining with them! But still a lovely lunch nonetheless 😊

The food was lovely but we felt rushed. 1.5 hours for a three course meal is not long enough. We really felt that the conveyor belt timings spoiled the experience overall. Considering the cost, it was not value for money in our opinion. Also, we were not able to go onto the roof terrace because was full. I much preferred the brasserie. We had a much more relaxed experience there. I was really disappointed.

We went for our wedding anniversary dinner. Fantastic service from Martin, made to feel very welcome. I had the special Shepherd’s Pie and it had an unexpected marrow bone in the middle (I’m a bit bone phobic, so an unwelcome surprise). That aside the food was excellent with the cheese soufflé being the stand out dish.

Me and my group of friends we have been to Ivy a couple time and last night we was served by Tia. Overall our experience with Tia was absolutely horrendous. She was an extremely rude waitress who doesn’t pay close to details. Tried to get her attention a couple time but she would completely ignore us when we needed her assistance. When we got the bills, less than 1 minute she came back with a card machine stood right beside us when we were still trying to spilt the bills. When we were trying to pay we notice she kept rolling her eyes at everyone of us. Her attitude is appalling.

Lovely food nice atmosphere a little noisy for me at 5.30pm. We had the set menu which was good value and the portion sizes were just right. Wasn't keen on adding the discretionary service charge however it was discretionary and we tipped instead. Excellent service very attentive

Everything was excellent , apart from being close to another table with a male speaking loud about company business. We would have stayed longer but we left after our meal. Having said that we will be returning again ,thank you.

Food was generally great but the Thick Cut Chips were over cooked and dry, I only had a Sirloin Steak with a sauce so the Chips made up half of my main meal. But in all,I would recommend The Ivy to everyone.

This was a meal for my niece’s 40th birthday. Her choice, as the Ivy is one of her favourite restaurants. Great choice, as the whole experience was amazing, from the front door, Reception through to the Waiters/waitresses. So Professional, polite and efficient and made the whole experience very special for the birthday girl.

So me and my friends went to the Ivy roof top last night, waiter was great… my friend however did get offended by some comments that were made by him. We enjoyed the food so much, it was lovely!! However by the end I felt we were being rushed to pay and eat… which ruined part of our night as it made us just want to leave. As well as this we over heard a member of staff say “can you get something off them ladies” whilst they could clearly see we were calculating. This resulted me in paying for all… as we just wanted to leave, which also made us not want to pay the service charge however we did and noticed the waiter put money in his back pocket, whether that was from us or not I do not know…
