    Had a family meal we all ate from the toast to spring menu which was great value and the food was amazing everyone enjoyed everything we had. The only slight disappointment was that we had booked for my dads 85th birthday and asked for a nice table but we were initially allocated the first table you come to when you walk into the roof garden restaurant we waited another 20 mins and we’re moved to a slightly better table but I would’ve expected a nice window table could’ve been reserved for us due to the occasion. Other than that a great time was had by all

    We only had an afternoon tea and felt the staff looked down their nose at us because of that. I got the feeling they’re only interested if your spending big or look like a football WAG. The tea never came with the scones and cake and on requesting it (again) the waitress snootily said we had to order it separately to which we reminded her we had, to her, 10 minutes ago! All in all nice location and ambience but felt a little pretentious.

    Always a lovely dining experience This time with family from abroad and no complaints. Our table was a little late but Danielle ( GM Asia) went above and beyond. The staff are polite yet friendly. My preference is always the top floor as it’s brighter & tables feel less close but I’m sure the brasserie is equally good

    Firstly thanks for having us. Food was absolutely delicious and service was okay but lacking attention to details. It was my partners 40th birthday celebration, table was set for 4 guests instead of two. I had to move the sets and ‚make a comment’ for someone to remove them even our drinks been served already and staff had time to remove them. We sat in the middle of the room with people walking past us eating with dirty bins. A lot of people were squeezing past us and when we asked for different table we were told ‚they are booked’ we weren’t bothered if this was a double table or sofa we just wanted no have peace and quiet. My plate been taken away when my partner was still eating, which again is a bad service. I been disappointed that other guests had better service/ tables so we decided to leave after dessert and not to carry on with our drinks. Overall outstanding food, only okay service.

    Food was lovely, staff friendly & liked the special Happy Anniversary pudding at the end. Thank u x Only tip- the staff’s uniforms were grubby, & ill fitting which looked a bit unprofessional & let the place down a bit. We’ll be back again for the food & atmosphere/environment.

    Another lovely evening at the Spinningfield Ivy. Never disappointed in the food or service. I was celebrating a belated birthday and my husband was celebrating some good news. Nicole was looking after us and she was so nice. Really professional & friendly. She really made our night special, so a huge thank you to her!

    We were seated at a very drafting table where all the staff passing from/to kitchen on one side and on the other part of the Garden. Not just us but the other clients were using their phones torches to read the menu. People were asking to be moved table because of the draft of the opening of the large door

    Service was amazing and the staff were friendly and attentive. Starters and drinks served well and in a timely manner. When ordering the main course I asked if mine could be made without prawns. I was not asked if I had an allergy but was advised this was possible When the mains arrived we were disappointed! 3 of us ordered the monkfish curry One of my daughters had only 1 piece of monkfish in the dish, the other 2 prawns. We were given an apology and bowls were brought with fish and prawns to add to the dishes I began to eat mine and to my horror found 5 prawns. This is not acceptable as it could have had serious consequences We were all out with my 80 year old sister and didn’t want to make a fuss Two deserts were taken off the bill , which was a gesture of goodwill Much more care should be taken when asking for a specific dietary request. I doubt we will go there again

    Everything was really good until I asked then to book me a taxi at reception. The sent me on the corner where there were no taxis. I went back in to ask them again. Which they didn't. Couldn't get rid of me quick enough. I spent 150 cash on dinner and didn't think asking for a taxi would be such an unreasonable thing to do. Apart from that. The food was good, restuarant was beautiful and the women who served us was incredible

    A birthday celebration get together with friends 16/3/24. Staff were all brilliant - from staff at reception to everyone in the roof garden area where we were seated. Ordered starters - two of which were not very hot on arrival at the table, but this was quickly rectified when we made staff aware; and we were offered free desserts as a way of apology. Food was very nice as were the drinks we ordered too. A very enjoyable experience - we will definitely return again.

    We have visited the Ivy several times and always enjoyed the experience however today something was lacking. We felt yesterday like the Ivy has become just a place to go rather than somewhere special. The food was just ok and one of our group was very unwell last night and think it was down to what she had eaten. We’ve never quibbled about the price but yesterday we just felt the cost was too much for the average service, food and ambience

    I enjoyed my lunch at The Ivy in Manchester. Manchester City prices are a little higher than the area where I reside which is halfway between Blackpool and Preston, However, I have recommended it to friends when they visit Manchester.
