This was my 2nd visit (my first was a gay pride weekend a few years ago and it was great) and it was even better than the first.

The staff were great and the food was amazing. A beautiful building, decor and ambience too.

It was more than worth the £14.90 parking; I will definitely visit again and would recommend the Ivy Spinning Fields to anyone.

Exceptional food, friendly service. Tables for two a little on the small side, which can be disappointing when you've booked it far in advance so if you'd prefer a bigger table specify it when booking I'd say.

A Sunday Bruch
Excellent service, particularly from the member of the team Summer. She advised on the Bloody Mary’s and made sure I got exactly what I wanted. A super spicy Bloody Mary.
The food was great, the Eggs Royale was done perfectly, not sure it needs the wedges, but I’m not going to moan about too much food.
All in all a fantastic brunch and the champagne was reasonably priced too.

The place itself is amazing, absolutely beautiful in all three dining area's, great Manchester welcome on arrival & from the waitresses.
I thought the food was lovely, I had the Shepherds pie, but think it was beef not lamb, so a little disappointed

I really really loved it here. The staff were fantastic. Every single one from the concierge to the waiter were superb (loved their outfits too!) They are a credit to the management. The decor and design of the place is really cool. I had the soufflé to start and my partner the salmon. I had the fillet steak and my partner had the duck curry. He had the chocolate bomb for dessert and I had the creme brûlée.

My only complaint is that my partner is a celiac. I would like to see clearly labelled gluten free options on the menu. I didn’t like how we had to go through it with the waiter. He kept having to double check with the kitchen over everything my boyfriend wanted. It became a bit draining. A lot of choices on there such as scallops for example weren’t GF where as they usually are elsewhere. He can usually tell what he can have just by looking at a menu and a lot of it was very grey here. It kept raising his hopes and then once they’d checked it had gluten. Even dishes that normally don’t! Surely a high end chain like the Ivy can get some GF signs on its menu! Everywhere else does. Miller and Carter for example is great at this.

Don’t let this detract from our enjoyment and love of the experience here. It was superb. We will return again soon. Loved the vibe. For us it was worth the hype and a lovely treat.

Wonderful service and delicious, inventive food, as always, and having a separate vegetarian/vegan menu is such a nice touch as this doesn't make you feel like the poor relation.

I came to the Ivy Manchester for lunch yesterday with my friend.
The staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs.
The food was excellent as I have come to expect from the Ivy group.
The surroundings were very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
I will definitely recommend to others and shall be dining here again in the near future.

Nice venue and atmosphere. I didn't feel that we received a warm welcome at the roof top bar. There was no smiles or 'Welcome' from the short haired lady when we approached the desk going into the restaurant. We waited 15 minutes before anyone came to take a drinks order. The water had no ice or lemon, which we asked for. The mushroom starter was cold. The fish was nice. Disappointed in the service. Friendly male waiter with blonde hair and spanish lady who topped our wine up, but overall slightly disappointed and expected more in terms of customer service and starter was disappointing.

Another superb lunch at The Ivy. The food and service are consistently high and there isn't a nicer place to eat. Served by a young lad called Rob, who was attentive smart and knowledgeable and is a credit to The Ivy.

The service was very good - staff very helpful. However, the music was far too loud for me and not appropriate to the setting. Also, I dont think it was fair to charge extra for more tea - in most places, where they serve afternoon tea, they dont charge for extra tea. For these reasons we wont be coming again.
