Amazing restaurant, from the meet and greet to the table service, food, wine and decor The Ivy is by far the best restaurant we have been to in Manchester. We could not fault it at all the staff are very tentative and make you feel special. We will definitely be back again once things are back to normal after lock down.

It would be lovely if us single people could be sat near by to other single people and not couples. A bit of conversation across tables to meet people and make friends would be so nice in these covid restricted times.....would be a selling point too for you as a venue :)

The food is okay nothing special, Ive had better brunch in other restaurants and cafe around Manchester, The ambiance is beautiful the value for food is overpriced, I would only go back for drink as the ambiance and the staff are the only good thing about the ivy!

Service was a little over the place, our original server brought water like we asked but forgot ice and lemon like we asked. After our starters she wasn't seen again and was told by members of staff that they will tell the server for anything we needed but ended up bringing it themselves. The burger that I had was a bit dry but overall would come again.

Experience and food was amazing! My steak and chips was one of the best I’ve had! The mrs had fish and chips and she really enjoyed that. I’d made a note that it was our anniversary on the booking and we were wished happy anniversary multiple times and we even got a little cake each which was a really lovely gesture. Staff were very professional and you could tell they take pride in there job. I will 100% be returning it’s probably one of the best places I have eaten brilliant place.

Lovely meal and surroundings. Great service by our waitress. They only thing that spilt our evening was a group of men walking around the restaurant every 10 to 15 minutes without face masks on. Made a mockery of the staff having to wear them all the time.

Unfortunately I found my food very ordinary and a bit bland. I had Duck Liver Parfait and Chicken Milanese. My husband however was happy with his choices, Tempura Prawns with salt and pepper Squid and Monkfish and Prawn Curry, he said I had chosen badly but I think anything from the menu at the Ivy should be superb. The service was ok although we were missing a drink from our initial order and there weren't enough water glasses on the table. We were sat by the fires and it was far too warm, the music was also very loud, good play list but hard to talk over. I have been to the Ivy before at lunch time with some colleagues and had a better experience, this time I left disappointed. I also felt the measures in place for Covid safety were quite poor. We were not greeted and looked after on arrival, nor were our contact details taken, our temperatures were not taken as it says they would be on the website, there was no hand sanitiser on the table and no control of numbers in the toilets which were crowded with ladies wearing no masks!

Food excellent . Service Excellent. Decor Excellent. Value Very good,.
The experience was slightly spoilt by a table of people who were very drunk , and very loud which surprised me that they were not asked to leave as it was also upsetting many of the other diners.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening here. The food was excellent - I booked because hey had a vegan menu and was not disappointed. The only slight disappointment was it was a little chilly in the restaurant which detracted a bit, but otherwise the atmosphere was wonderful. Thank you, will be back!

Food was just very mediocre at best not what you’d expect. Upmarket pub grub. Have eaten in Brasserie; Asian and Rooftop several times and gave it another go. Asian restaurant by far best for food. Overall atmosphere is great however if it’s great food you’re looking for not the place to choose.
