    My Shepherds pie was delicious but could have benefited from a side plate of veg. Had a lovely time and the complimentary birthday Desert for my daughter’s 18th was a lovely surprise and made her day.

    It was Ok. Overpriced for the food delivered, which is just very mediocre and drinks are so expensive. 2 small and rather bland margaritas and 2 gins over £55 They add service charge which I hate, but it was good service so didnt mind too much. Its a nice place with different levels, good service but the food & drinks is poor and theyre relying heavily on the decor, service and name. Wouldnt really recommend as there's so many better restaurants in Manchester if your a foodie, you'll be disappointed.

    There have been times when I’ve sincerely enjoyed going to the Ivy with my family and friends. Tonight, was unfortunately, not one of those nights. We went together with my partner to celebrate our 3 years anniversary. We chose to go for the set menu. Unfortunately, the selection was already uninteresting and an off combination of starters and mains (there was little cohesiveness). The food itself was average to below average. The crab salad was the best starter, however, the watermelon pairing was neither necessary nor of good quality. The soup was watery and uninteresting. The main curry was nothing to write home about and the shepherds pie was probably the best dish on the menu, with rich flavours and satisfying meaty texture. The pistachio dessert was below average, with uncomfortable presentation and uninteresting flavour pallet. Service was as per usual lovely. We were offered a free dessert to celebrate our anniversary, which is always a pleasant experience and the waiter gave us a chance to exchange a dish we didn’t enjoy for free. The music is way too loud, especially when sat next to speaker. It has always been loud. Please turn it down. Cannot recommend the Ivy this season to friends unfortunately.

    Great food - varied enough menu with some great seasonal picks. I had the February special Scallops to start which were beautiful. The fishcake from the menu for main and it was just so delish. The service was great - the wait staff could t do enough for us.

    In my opinion you’re paying more for the great service and ambience here than top quality food. The food was mid, nothing special. Given the price point you could go somewhere Michelin and have a much better food experience. Granted - the ambience may not be as good as the ivy do this very well!

    We were celebrating my sister’s birthday. The service was superb! Attentive but not too much as that can distract from your conversations. A lovely way to spend an afternoon in ambient surroundings. The only slight was the waiter topped up my wine from a different type of wine. He probably thought it was the same one.

    Not sure if it was because we went on a Saturday night but we felt as if we were eating our food in the middle of a busy road ! We first had drinks across the way of the rooftop dining area.. we were perched on some small stools and had to keep catching our drinks every time someone went past due there being a loose floorboard where we were seated. When we went through to eat we were sat right next to the bar which was very noisy and not far from the dj whose music was very loud dance music, we felt more like we were at a bar in Ibiza than having a quiet romantic meal, add to that the fridge door opening every 5 minutes and blinding you and staff members constantly rushing past you it wasn’t in the slightest bit the romantic meal that we had hoped for

    We enjoy The Ivy, a nice extra with the voucher of a fee bottle of champagne . However ,it still is ridiculous that a bottle of water is £4.95 , what's wrong with tap water. I just added fir water fir the table, and forgot to ask for ta,however a good establishment should ask ,if you want bottled or tap . Come on Ivy it's only a small thing, but it let's you down .

    Dined in the roof garden, was given a voucher for my birthday which had expired. After calling up, they agreed to extend the expiry date. The place, the service, the music was all fantastic. We had amazing food and wine. Out waiter was also brilliant, although it wasn’t my birthday as I had booked with my birthday voucher, he still brought me a dessert with a candle. The whole experience was wonderful

    Overall we were really happy with our dining. The only issue we had was the music that was played. It really ruined the ambience and our moods. We are sat in a fine dining establishment being waited on and provided silver service yet the music playing is club/grunge/house music more commonly associated with the drug fueled rave scene. It was valentine's night in a very well presented establishment so it left us feeling very uneasy and we quickly finished our food and went elsewhere. Our host and service was incredible. The food was beautiful and very well presented and the drinks were fabulous. We can't knock the restaurant for it's class or it's intent but whomever chose the music for the evening really ought to rethink their plans for next year. It is a restaurant, not a nightclub. I saw no dancefloor so what is the rationale behind playing music that would invite a younger audience to want to get rowdy and overly energetic in a place like The Ivy? It isn't really logical nor expected. Furthermore, Valentine's is supposed to be about passion, Love, care and romance. It's hard to create that kind of energy whilst listening to grunge-fest. It certainly wasn't expected nor welcomed. It was chaotic and shifted the mood from happy to annoyed. Our plans for the evening changed as soon as we heard the music and we fulfilled our booking then left. I won't be eager to return if that is the atmosphere that was intended. On a normal night a little of that kind of thing here and there is alright but let's not forget it's a dining establishment and it's certainly a far cry from a sticky nightclub floor and drug filled toilet cubicle where you'd expect to find that kind of thing.
