    We were there for champagne afternoon tea. We were seated next to a very loud table of 4. It was good to seem them having a lovely time but was a little bit overwhelming at times when their voices were raised to a very high octave. On the whole a pleasant and enjoyable experience

    Great food and great service - from the door being opened as you enter , the reception team finding your reservation and telling you where you need to go to arriving at your table you where made to feel really welcome and special . Service from the waiter was faultless and we never felt rushed . A simply wonderful afternoon - even a special cake at the end with happy anniversary at no extra cost - it was the small things like that that made it simply amazing .

    We could have gone straight to our table but decided to have a drink at the bar first. Our waiter Martin could not have been better he was professional, helpful and friendly. The Champagne afternoon tea was superb. The room was busy, there was background music but the ambiance was very good and you could chat without being overheard. The other restaurants looked inviting. Really great experience. We Will be back.

    I have many fond memories dining here and I have always looked forward to dining at The Ivy Manchester. Last night was no exception. Well presented good looking starters and desserts. Ambience was just right to start with although it became harder to have a conversation with the live DJ and with every diner having to raise their voices just to be heard. A great time until we were charged £5.00 for 2 x cups of hot water and lemon. This somewhat ruined the night.

    Great surroundings,and good waiter service. However little concerned with the reaction from reception that because there was a possibility of being late I had rang a number of times and the phone was unanswered. The response was reservations closed at 1700. I pointed put the answerphone message was to re-direct me to the restaurant number which was unanswered. Given the notice when making the reservation about the 15 min grace period how else do you contact the restaurant to inform of unseen eventualities? I should add there was a 245 mile journey undertaken and this is a favourite venue for these trips. Perhaps the central reservations message needs updating and clarifying or the front desk staff need to be aware of issue and a direct number available which is manned. Incidentally as waiter staff pointed out this was a quiet period for the end of evening weekend. 2015 hrs 15 May. Otherwise the evening was uneventful.

    Ambience and overall look of the room is beautiful with lots of space and greenery between the tables. Music from the resident DJ was too loud and monotonous. Bar area was bright and welcoming with extensive range of cocktails and knowledgeable staff. Service was spot on and staff member attentive. Food was good and well presented. A lovely eating experience for a special occasion.

    Having decided to Select the Ivy for my partners birthday, it was disappointing the food was not up to standard the steak was very fatty. Service was a good standard the food did not match. Shame really as having been before as you can appreciate the food is expected to be of high standard. Partners birthday a good piece of steak would have been nice. Dissatisfied

    Arrived for our 11am Saturday reservation on the roof terrace. Only just opened so very quiet. Ordered the cheese soufflé and the eggs Benedict with chips. Perfect, only down side - no room for dessert. All done by 12.30 with restaurant filling up and getting busy. Exceptional staff, nothing too much trouble, lovely decor throughout, great service and delicious food. Highly recommend.

    Loved the roof terrace, DJ playing but at a nice volume. Bar service was engaging. Our waiter Martin was incredible and he definitely made our night. Biggest let down was the Frozen Berry Desert, it was so sour and the warm white chocolate sauce didn't defrost the berries which we guessed should have happened. It was pretty much inedible. Steak however was amazing.
