Rude staff on arrival. 20 mins before we were served drinks. Food was ok but nothing special.

Had a lovely time as always at the Ivy. We were on the roof terrace. I can’t remember our waitresses name but she was absolutely lovely, very friendly and was always on hand to attend to our needs

Both food and service were great. It is extremely loud though like dining in a nightclub but I guess that's to cater for the tight top loafer wearing hip crowd

They’re very consistent - the food is always amazing, the service is always bad. This time we felt very rushed to hurry through our meal (they brought the mains before we had finished starters) yet whenever we wanted to ask for something (condiments, drinks etc) there was no one around. It pretty much always the same at the Manchester venue.

Our evening at The Ivy was outstanding. A beautiful restaurant with top class food. Our waiter Antonio was the best waiter we’ve ever had. Friendly, helpful and full of joy, we literally felt like we’d known him for a life time! The best restaurant experience I think we’ve ever had. Cannot wait to visit again!

Absolutely loved my first visit here with friends to celebrate my birthday.
I cannot find one negative thing to say about the place, from start to finish it was perfect.
The roof terrace is a lovely setting, the decor & ambience makes you feel very comfortable & relaxed.
Our food was delicious, the presentation superb, cocktails fantastic, to top it off i was given a lovely little individual fresh cream & raspberry cake with a lit candle - a really lovely gesture.
Every single staff member we encountered was courteous, friendly & helpful. Can't wait to go back!

The service was outstanding from the moment we were greeted at the door to the moment we left. All members of staff seemed genuinely happy to be there and had good team spirit which makes for a better environment for customers. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. The ambience was perfect (we were on the terrace & the weather certainly helped!). Absolutely gorgeous decor. The staff took the time to describe the afternoon tea to us and were very attentive in asking if we needed more drinks and taking plates away. I felt the afternoon tea was great value for money. Overall a five star experience. My only criticism could be that we were seated in the centre of the dining area which meant people were rushing past us often, we weren't bumped or touched and it was not enough to disrupt our meal but it was noticeable so did knock the mood a little. It also felt COVID secure.

I have dined at the other floors of The Ivy, and it's certainly a vibrant and exciting place to eat with friends or business associates. This time it was a birthday treat for my partner and we certainly had a lovely time. That was mostly due to the OUTSTANDING service we have come to expect at The Ivy, and also the delicious food.
There's quite a "scene" going on here. Although a Monday evening, it was vibrant and there were a lot of young adults dressed as if they were going to a nightclub. To be honest, that is a bit trashy and while this may not be a popular view I do think the restaurant should have some sort of dress code to stop young women coming in looking like hookers. Honestly! It's not like this at the London restaurant. A much classier crowd. But while the people watching can detract a bit, we had a fantastic meal and the service is perfect. The music is a bit on the loud side, but not so much that you have to raise your voice above it, and the selection by the live DJ is really good, conducive to a fun, celebratory atmosphere while not getting in the way of conversation. We love the atmosphere and the greenery. The decor is excellent. Prices are high, but not crazy, for the food and no dish disappoints. It's a shame there is such a ridiculous markup on the wine list. 97 quid for a bottle of Veuve Cliquot is pretty obnoxious. But I always forgive The Ivy because of the staff, atmosphere and food.
