Lovely themes and ambiance, but your noy getting value for money on the food

Service was good, until the waiter spent a lot of time chatting to us, as friendly as that was at first it started feeling like he was hitting on us.

Poor service on the rooftop terrace during our meal. It attentive at all. Had to get a manager as the first steak ordered wasn’t cooked right neither was the second steak brought and this was not eaten. No monkfish in a monkfish curry. The manager was eventually very helpful and sent us down to the second floor for our desserts were we had far better service. They didn’t charge us for the 2 mains or any desserts but for a place which is suppose to be amazing it was very poor

The ambience of The Ivy is something else - I've never actually seen a restaurant quite like it. An absolute assault on the senses! Each floor is fascinating and I hate to think how much money has been spent to create the place.

The service is efficient and unobtrusive - there are plenty of staff and all appear attentive and happy to help. The food is okay - average at best but I think that is the point. The original London restaurant was about being seen, more than the brilliance of the food. However, my wife did say the burger was the best she'd ever tasted and I loved the cocktails.

I would have preferred to have chosen from the A La Carte rather than the Brunch menu as the choice of steaks was much larger but I'm not sure whether that was due to the timing of our visit, 2pm Sunday, rather than anything else. One glaring error was the offer of a 2oz Rib Eye on the menu - seemed very little for £31.95. When I checked the full menu it was shown as 12oz but even on line the Brunch menu has the error. Attention to detail guys? Also, I was disappointed that the Partridge was sold out by 2pm - seems a bit early.

It's a restaurant that you have to visit at least once, just for the experience.

Just wow! It has the most beautiful decor that I have ever seen. It is absolutely stunning. The waitress looking after us that night was great and after she heard it was our anniversary meal, she bought us out some lovely little raspberry tarts with a cute message on them. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was brilliant. Honestly cannot say enough good about this place. Can’t wait to return when I’m next in Manchester!

I enjoyed the experience of going to the Ivy however I don’t think I would rush back to eat there even tho the food was lovely. I felt the tables were a little close to each other. The staff were very friendly, my only niggle regarding the service was our food came before our starter plates had been removed.
The restaurant is beautiful inside, it is worth a visit we attended for our wedding anniversary. I would definitely go back for a couple of drinks on a night out

This wa our first time and we will certainly be back. We had lunch upstairs in the Garden. The staff and the service was exemplary. The ambiance is really good with fantastic décor. As it was a nice day, the roof was open in certain parts and that adds to the enjoyment. The menu is excellent---just enough choice. Most standard dishes well prepared and well presented using good ingredients. The drinks list is also excellent. All the prices are very reasonable for you get and the added service charge is well worth it.

This is great informal dinning with sophistication. It was no wonder that it was very full.

We visited the rooftop restaurant at the Ivy for lunch and it had a fabulous ambiance and the decor is just stunning. We arrived just before our lunch reservation at 12. Unfortunately we thought it was a little odd that there was no one there to greet us at the entrance or at the restaurant. The staff weren’t rude or anything, but there was definitely no service to speak of. The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing and the drinks were gorgeous too.

We had an anniversary lunch and everything was excellent - I got the bill and was pleasantly surprised with the amount as we had three courses each, a good bottle of wine and coffee! The little beignets with a message with the coffee was a lovely touch as well😘😘😎😀

It just wasn’t the level of service I’d expect; our table wasn’t ready even though we’d booked months before yet a walk-in off the street were sat and orders taken before we sat down. We were asked to sit in bar, ordered drinks and then told table was ready. Drinks order was then lost and we had to prompt to re-order. Finally I found the waitress a little brash and unfriendly

We were a group of 5 and we all absolutely enjoyed the evening, all of our dishes were delicious, each one of us enjoyed the food. The service was superb and we were kept up to date throughout the whole evening, very professional and warm. We all noticed the ambience was really nice, and the music was fabulous and not too loud considering we were right next to the DJ. We would recommend and look forward to coming back soon.

Food price we low but sadly was the quality of the food too. It took 30 minutes to get our table and another 40 minutes to get our food. Service generally poor. Seems the money has been spent here on the venue with food quality and attention to detail low. We were primarily there for food so perhaps if you were more focused around a boozy lunch this would be a better location.
