Rude staff on arrival. 20 mins before we were served drinks. Food was ok but nothing special.
Perfect area to have a girl's catch up. New sitting area placed for me anyway. Wonderful food and service
We had a meal in the Ivy roof garden. The food, staff & general ambience was fabulous! Would highly recommend.
Always a great meal at the ivy! Love the rooftop atmosphere
Excellent service and bonus being on the roof terrace floor in such gorgeous weather!
Lovely staff, very energetic and happy. Decor and staff uniforms looked lovely. Just a bit of poor management with masks etc and toilets but other than that a lovely experience
Outstanding food, decor and service. It really is the perfect venue
Fantastic evening, great music and fabulous food!
Had a fantastic meal , great ambience , superb staff , first class restaurant, would of been nice to stay longer for after dinner drinks 🍹
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
Can’t wait to return
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.
We went to the Ivy as a treat for our Wedding Anniversary and had a meal in the Roof garden. Everything about it was superb. The food, the service and the environment.
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!
Brilliant attentive staff. Food was just as good as always!
The food and drinks were outstanding, service was also pretty good. Overall the ambiance and decor were what won me over though - absolutely stunning!
For my partners Birthday
Had an amazing time as always
Lovely- our go-to for date night. very expensive but it’s expected! service is great but you need to make sure you get a nice table- sometimes you can be sat just on the side. other than that perfect!
Great atmosphere and delicious food. Pricey but that is to be expected
Enjoyable Birthday Lunch for my daughters 18th Birthday. Staff very helpful
Went for a friend’s 50th birthday. Atmosphere, food, staff and overall experience as excellent.
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!
Lovely afternoon out in a beautiful setting . The ambiance was lovely and the staff were very professional! We had a lovely experience and will be back soon
Everything was excellent apart from the loud music
Great food, lovely setting and good service
Will return 😊
Fabulous meal, fantastic drinks and excellent service.
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.
Excellent on all areas would definitely recommend and we plan to ba k soon .
Beautiful place relaxing pretty place to go for food or just refreshing drink. Love the plants and decor stunning
Food and drink and service was amazing somewhere to feel special and they made my daughter feel special at 37weeks pregnant will be going back.
What a lovely experience! Staff were all friendly and accommodating and the roof garden was beautiful!
Great food. Attentive helpful staff
An all round brilliant dining experience
The roof garden is the place to be
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.
Great place, friendly. Good food. Negative food served too fast ie just finishing the starter when main arrived , feel a bit rushed.
Great atmosphere, lovely attentive staff. Will definitely be going again.
What an amazing location. We had a special occasion there on Monday and the staff were amazingly supportive. I can’t recommend this venue enough. You won’t be disappointed
Excellent food and service, will definitely return.
Roof garden restaurant for our first ever visit. Food lovely and staff so friendly
Delicious food and lovely atmosphere with a friendly service
Only had drinks but were wonderful and reasonably priced. The roof garden is beautiful and a must see
Nice place. Easily one of the best restaurants in Manchester.
