The restaurant clearly needs more ladies toilets it’s a bit of an ordeal trying to use the facilities as there’s not enough toilets for the number of customers. Service wasn’t fantastic, I had to ask for water to be provided with the bottle of wine we ordered. We had a champagne afternoon tea and got charged extra for coffee and my sons chips were charged for when they were included in the price of his meal... I felt the staff were a little inexperienced.

Although we had a lovely time, it did not live up to the expectations we had and of previous visits to the ivy in other towns. Would go again but wouldn't rush back

Excellent service. Food was nice. We were looked after really well and my (seven year old) daughter, whose birthday it was, was made to feel very special.

Lovely place but ...Tiresome up selling by staff, sent fish back as lukewarm , likewise the side order of chips. Fish came back- not convinced it wasn’t the same piece which had been reheated and smothered in sauce. New chips which were delicious. Offered complimentary desserts which we would never have ordered plus coffees on the house. On checking the bill, we’d been charged for both chips plus drinks we hadn’t ordered. A bit of a bitter taste. Not as good as it was, unfortunately.

This is my 4th visit and have bought different friends every time because I’ve told them how wonderful it was . All of them have thought the same . I have only been to the rooftop restaurant but would love to try the Asian restaurant on my next visit to Manchester

Food was good. I had the pumpkin tortellini and vegetarian shepherds pie which were both good. I’d have liked at least one more vegetarian option. My wife had the fish and chips which she said were excellent. The staff were absolutely brilliant. Very attentive and helpful, and they brought me a small cake for my birthday. A lovely experience.

Booked at table at the roof garden to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday. We loved the place. Food and service great. A little disappointed that my Husbands desert did not come with the little "Happy Birthday" tag that others did, even though staff had greeted us with a happy Birthday. Also for us the music was a little too loud. Everything else perfect. Would defiantly come again.

Always Great ... in such a busy restaurant there's always going to be mixed reviews, though every time we've booked or dropped in, we've never been disappointed and this is why we go back!

It's so refreshing to receive great service (by everyone!), delicious food, perfect atmosphere all in one place

This was our first visit to The Ivy, but I’m sure we will be back. It is a lovely venue, that in my opinion manages to set itself apart from the majority of the competition. The service was very attentive , with our waitress being very proactive with a slight delay to our dessert. The food was very good, and we particularly enjoyed the surroundings. Overall an excellent dining experience.

From beginning to end, service was exceptional. Attentive, polite, knowledgeable and friendly. The ambience and décor makes The Ivy. And, you HAVE to check out the ladies loo! The place has a buzz about it and the food and wine is great too

Had a lovely meal and great wine. Service was excellent. The music was a bit night clubby to me needed to be more easy on the ears. We did ask the DJ to change it but it fell on deaf ears.

I booked the Ivy as a surprise for my mum and dad.
From the moment we arrived at the entrance, we didn’t stop smiling.
Service from start to finish was amazing.
Delicious food, lovely wine and don’t even get me started on the toilets, I could move in tomorrow.
Will definitely be back.

We asked reception if we can come back for desserts as we were too full. However were informed that the table cannot be booked for desserts only. I was not happy about this.

Fantastic venue, interior design, ambience. Service was a bit hit and miss but overall good.

Food mains were problematic for two dishes undercooked steak and like warm lamb. For the price tag this shouldn't happen.
