Too loud to hold a conversation. Service was friendly but very slow. 40 mins to get a 1st drink

A beautiful meal, well presented in a lovely atmosphere.
Foodcwell priced for the centre of Manchester.
But drink expensive especially a bottle of wine.
Not a bad service considering how busy it was. A quick table turn around .
I would just say be aware when you get your bill as we had £75 worth of drinks on it, that wasn't ours.

Beautiful place, good atmosphere, and friendly staff.

Afternoon tea poor if you’re a vegetarian. Three small sandwiches, all involving cream cheese. The bread was a bit soggy on the cucumber one. The standard meat one was very good though and the scones were amazing. Also, weirdly didn’t come with any tea and was charged extra for tea at the end?

Overall, I would go back, but would not have the afternoon tea again.

Our waiter, Martin, was excellent and incredibly attentive. Our table was booked for 3.30 p.m. but unfortunately it did not become available until 3.55 p.m. so it was a good job we were not in a rush.

The food we had was excellent value but I think that the drinks are over-priced.

All in all a pleasant afternoon.

The Venue was absolutely fantastic and had a fantastic Atmosphere from the first minute you enter the doors. The food and service was exceptional as you would expect from Ivy, but a special mention has to go to Tia our Waitress who went out of her way to look after us.

If there was one small criticism, and it was very small, was that the music was a little loud and was difficult to hear my wife across the table and our waitress when she was speaking to us.

That is just nitpicking, would definitely go back and would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Booked for 3.30 main course came 4.30. Had to ask 3 times for 2 glasses of wine, we had finished the starter with no drinks. Asked a couple of times about the dishes and the waitress didnt have a clue, she was pleasant but not knowledgeable.

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.
