The Ivy Brasserie, Spinningfields
Excellent food and service. In great venue.
I would recommend this for anyone looking for a great relaxed place to eat in Manchester
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very special. Staff were very attentive and food was excellent. Also good value for money. We even received a small anniversary desert which was very much appreciated.
First time at the Ivy in Manchester with my husband.
Lovely unique experience. Rooftop bar area beautiful, amazing music. Food and service excellent with the friendliest staff in all areas. Lobster risotto is a must on my return.
Asian lounge decor exquisite. Bar staff introduced is to Chinese wine which was delicious.
We can’t wait to return with all of our family so they can share the experience
Great food. Dean the waiter was so good and made it an enjoyable visit.
Excellent service, amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, superb attention to detail, the best dinning experience in Manchester, very clean facilities. An overall fantastic day. Thank you.
Fantastic meal with great bubbly service. Definitely will return.
Nice food, friendly staff and processional. Beautiful place to see and eat at!
The food was absolutely delicious, Aaron our waiter had us laughing and really made us feel like we could have stayed all day rather than being rushed out etc
We went to The Ivy for my daughters birthday and thoroughly enjoyed every thing about it. The waiter was so lovely and interested in what we were ordering and giving us advice absolutely brilliant! All my children loved the food that they ordered which is amazing!
Would highly recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed!
Really good food and service, staff were welcoming, polite and very attentive.
The Ivy never disappoints. Started the evening with a nice glass of prosecco in the Roof Top bar and then dined in the Brasserie. Food was fantastic, choice of food and drink excellent, service impeccable and the overall ambience was amazing.
Having been on a few occasions and loved it . I decided to bring a friend for a birthday treat and was a little bit disappointed with the service having been before , we were . Introduced to our waitress and then we never saw her again and on several occasions we had to ask someone to help us , which was a little bit disappointing. The food was amazing but this overall experience wasn’t what Ive have had In the past .
Great service, food and place. Will be going again!
Excellent Saturday lunch would return without a second thought
Rhubarb gin was very good but not enough gin>.>................................__Better than Lon
All round good experience but food wasn’t very hot!
Lovely atmosphere and attention to detail.
Food and Service were lovely.
The food was amazing and service was good. Had a nice time overall. However, I did not realise there would be a DJ in the restaurant. It made it extremely difficult to have a conversation. It was more like having dinner in a club. I love the ivy, but I really don’t think that the DJ music was appropriate, nor did it add anything and just took away from the ambience. I would definitely go back, but at a time when there wasn’t unpleasant, blaring music. It ruined the evening
Perfect night for my daughters 21st, cannot fault the place
Was alovely place but very cramped tables where very close together was scared to talk incase the couple next to us could hear us. It was nice to say iv been but wouldn't rush to head back.
Make sure you have a good battery strength on your phone as you will need it to use the torch app as it is impossible to read the menu given the point size of the text and the darkness of the table. Food though was excellent and the service very good.
Fabulous!! Great family birthday meal. Everybody happy. Girls that served us initially were amazing. Definitely recommend
A lovely experience! We were out celebrating a friends birthday and were made to feel welcome upon our arrival. Our Waiter Aaron was very friendly and met all our needs and we were very demanding! Thank you Aaron. The food was excellent and all the dishes were explained to us and recommendations were made to help us make our decisions. Our wine glass was always topped up - the sign of an experienced waiter!
The restaurant had a great atmosphere and a mixture of clients - families/couples/groups.
We certainly felt that we got value for our money and we will all be making return visits.
Fabulous afternoon at The Ivy, great value on the daytime set price, wonderful waiting on staff, so many of them too which meant they could be attentive and efficient. Very busy inside, thought it was a great buzzing atmosphere,
Fantastic service, ensure you leave cash on the table so that the actual staff are supported (waiting/chef) are recognised.
I have visited the bars in the Ivy for cocktails previously and have had brunch in the brassiere but this is the first time we have visited for lunch.
The food was delicious. I had the blackened cod which was a great dish.
What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Service was first class and a lovely atmosphere.
Looking forward to our next visit!
Lovely 3 course meal, definitely recommend the blackened cod.
It was a pleasant experience. Our waiter was efficient and attentive without being a nuisance. We thought the food choices on the set lunch menu was a little restrictive. Would hope that it is changed regularly.
The decoration and fittings of all the dining rooms were excellent.
Visited here as a couple for brunch. Very quiet. Service was excellent. Very engaging staff. Nice food. Lovely coffee.
Everything about this restaurant is simply fabulous and is my favourite venue in Manchester when I visit. The customer service was super on Thursday and I can not fault this place. Highly highly recommend the chocolate Bomb desert as well as the Blackened cod it’s delicious.
It’s very vibrant atmosphere and lovely setting of room design . Food varied reviews as we all had different dishes some good some not so tasty. Bit disappointing as was 60th birthday and this was noted prior to going but thus not acknowledged as is usual in restaurants . If it’s atmosphere and don’t mind noisy and dark then this is the place . I have a food allergy and they were very thorough
really good food just incredibly overpriced for what it is, and having to buy sides and sauces separate from the main meal is a bit extortionate. drinks were nice but had different service charges added to the drink depending on which bar staff served you? £30 for two gins including service charge is ridiculous!!
Fabulous waitress, nice place to be, service charge at the bar is a bit steep though.
Lovely food, great service.. everytime I have been its been excellent
Enjoyed a lovely meal at The Ivy. Would definitely revisit.
Not sure why when booking you are asked 'Is it a celebration?' as replying yes to this didn't have any effect on the booking whatsoever.
We were going to the theatre and a staff member at the hotel we were staying at said he could recommend some restaurants in Manchester.
Of the six or seven he suggested, we choose this one and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant. It was so close to the theatre (Opera House) and they had taken note of my comments, that one of our party had mobility issues and an allergy. They seated us very near the entrance, which was ideal and they checked with the chef, re the allergy.
We chose three courses from the A La Carte Menu and every morsel of each dish was delicious. We both ate differently for each course and both thought the same about the food.
We were served by Ellie and then by Gary. Both were great. If I was being picky, I would say it would have been an idea that Ellie told us she was going off duty and Gary would be serving us.
We will no doubt eat here again, If we come to Manchester, and no doubt we will, we will eat here again. We will also try other branches of The Ivy around the country, on the strength of this visit.
This is one of the best meals we have ever had, if not the best.
Wonderful meal and atmosphere the 3rd time we have all been and will return again
Amazing food and decor - as we would expect from an Ivy. BUT the person who showed us to our table was very rude and unsmiling, behaving as if she was doing us a favour - not what we would expect from an Ivy. She could do with spending some time with the A team in Covent Garden to find out what professional service means. This would not stop me going again as long as it is a one off as it really marred our experience.
My second visit in two weeks , a great place to meet up with special friends for a lovely meal . The place is well run with great attentive staff , flamboyant in decor and upmarket for a real treat , lived it
Great food, ambience and service Manchester is always the best Ivy
