We took advantage of the half price food offer for Jan but I would not return. Service was slow, requests were forgotten and it took 10 minutes to get some salt and pepper. The food was luke warm and small portions.

Booked for a Birthday celebration with friends as our usual venue was closed for refurbishment- how glad we did! The food was excellent (best fillet steak for a long time), for dessert we couldn't decide so ordered one of everything and haven't had any desserts quite like them anywhere else in Manchester.
The acts on the cat-walk were superb - all were very professionally put together and there was a lot of variety.
Menagerie is now our favoured restaurant in Manchester!

Me and my girlfriend visited for the first time. It was a Thursday evening but still surprisingly busy. As soon as we walked in the atmosphere was booming which we enjoyed. We had starters and mains which we thoroughly enjoyed but unfortunately we had no room for dessert. The ladies dancing we thought was a great idea. Would definitely be going back soon.
Only negatives were, booked a table for 20:45 and didn't get seated for around 20 minutes after as it was busy. Also maybe not somewhere to go for an intimate meal.

Not worth the effort. All food is overpriced for the quality, but worst of all the service is average to poor. Manager was helpful but watch out for the host and female waiting staff. It feels obvious they don't want to be there nor appreciate you as a customer. Had been warned ahead of my visit by others and wish I'd listened. Look out for the £12 drinks

Awful service, waitress was moody did not approach us. Another waiter who could not speak English well had to go and call her to attend to us . We only know this because he said my English is not good! We would never go back , just looks pretty for instagram /Snapchat

Overall a decent ambiance, but not a big selection for people who wanted mocktails, seemed like we were given mocktails with lots of sugar syrup and some fruit flavor in it, disappointed.

Throughly enjoyed my experience, staff were incredibly friendly took the time out to speak to us individually and created a wonder ambience for us. We were only meant to spend 1 hour there for lunch however ended up spending 3 hours as the food was up to value and the environment was very friendly.

Another pretentious restaurant with cool quality of food. Realised it was 50% after we booked and it still wasn't worth my 40 quid bill. Salty old chips, average chicken, disappointing scallops.

This was our first time to Menagerie and WOW what an experience.
We were entertained on arrival by a magician who managed to completely fool us ... over and over again. After having broken two glasses before we ate (which was managed without the bat of an eye)......we settled into our evening.
The food was superb, fabulous starters, flavours just really out there! Main courses again excellent...I had the gnocchi which was superb, my husband the fillet steak and my daughter the lamb, which was pink and succulent.
We were then surprisingly entertained by fire eaters, who paraded along a cat walk alongside our table. If this wasn't crazy enough, along came an exotic dancer who proceeded to remove her clothes....in a most glamorous and most tasteful way. She was beautiful and her seduction, quite lovely.
Definitely will return with many of our friends who upon hearing about our evening, want to experience this restaurant for themselves..... and the floorshow!

Music too loud - can't talk properly. Food over priced.
They add on an additional charge for the entertainment - but don't tell you it's optional!

Didn't like the restaurant at all. Food poor, very pretentious and the entertainment was to be be desired. The worst restaurant we have visited in years. Spinningfields needn't be worried as neighbourhood, artisan and tattu are far superior.
Won't be returning.

I went to Menagerie on Saturday with 5 other ladies. We had one of the big booths next to the stage. The entertainment was amazing! The food was also really good and we kept our booth and stayed for the rest of the night. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun evening out.

Really good value for money, waitress gave outstanding service didn't have to lift a finger nothing was too much at all. Would definitely come back If in the area and would recommend to a friend

Food was good but I think it could be improved if they stuck to one cuisine. The cocktails were very nice, if overpriced (£10 each). The restaurant has live acts on but I felt like they were all a bit cobbled together and put whoever they could persuade to get on the stage. It seemed like forced fun, managers asking us to get on the table and dance and handing out props to wear. The people around us seemed to agree, everyone looked a bit confused. I had high expectations for this place but it just doesn't compare to the other high quality restaurants and bars in Manchester.

Cocktails lovely. Food was not so good - not a great selection and had been warned not to order a couple of things by friends who have been previously. The food arrived within minutes of ordering, was bland and not worth the price at all.
Wasn't much performing going on while we were there (7.45-9) and we got rushed off the table just over an hour after we arrived. When booking we had not been warned the table was needed for someone else.
Booked this for my birthday intended on staying all night for drinks but were moved from the table - was very disappointed.
