    My wide and I have eaten here a handful of times now and it never disappoints. Arrive a little early and have a drink at the cute roof bar, whilst being served by very hospitable wait-staff. When it's time to eat, scoot across the landing landing, get greeted by a lovely person and escorted to your seat. The choice is epic and seasonal. Food itself is really lovely (steak especially!). But what makes this place great is the staff. They really can't do enough for you.

    Lovely birthday meal. The duck salad was pretty short on duck. Waiters are constantly walking past you in certain areas, which can be a little annoying

    Me and my parents went to the ivy for my 21st birthday and had such a nice lunch. We sat in the roof garden which was so nice and the atmosphere was great. The service was amazing, our waitress Sarah was amazing and made the lunch. Will be coming back.

    Really enjoyed our time at the rooftop garden although being sat quite close to the dj wasn't the best the ambience was nice but far too loud to have a conversation if sat on the dj end of the room (I mean we had a conversation but had to talk a lot louder than normal) But it was our 1st time their service and food were outstanding

    Zucchini fritti were amazing.. salt and pepper squid was just ok.. my partners lobster linguine was superb. My steak was awful, not a nice cut of fillet. The broccolini was ok, my mash was late and red wine jus came at the end of the meal. Crème brûlée was a big hit. Ordered a double espresso.. it didn’t show up but was on the bill, they did remove it when asked.. fabulous decor, great space, great ambiance but food let it down.

    Lovely restaurant and a nice table. Service was excellent and food lovely. I really liked the prawn risotto and the lovely birthday dessert. Only thing that wasn’t great was the cheese and crackers as there was only cheddar on the plate .. would have berm nice to have 2 different cheeses and the off walnut or quince or something to make it a bit more funky :-)

    A really enjoyable early evening with friends, a beautiful place, we were in the roof garden which looked perfect in the sunlight. The potions were rather small for me but of high quality and served efficiently. Highly recommended for the special occasion.

    An absolutely gorgeous early lunch out of the rooftop bar. The food was delicious and the person who looked after our table was really lovely. We were very well looked after. They made my daughter (whose birthday we were celebrating) very special! The ambience and atmosphere was lovely. Cannot wait to go again!

    Was late being seated by 25 minutes with no apologies, had to ask for set menu twice! Service took that long that we had no time for a pudding!!!! No one smiled staff wise and they seemed so busy that they were not helpful!!! the person welcoming into the building was on his phone on arrival and leaving - very disappointing experience, although the two courses we did have apart from waiting at least 40 minutes between courses was amazing

    Thank you for our fantastic afternoon at your lovely rooftop setting in Manchester. It was an anniversary present from our son and we loved it. The food was amazing and we definitely will be back. Thank you too for the really pleasant service from our server. I can't remember her name but she had an Australian accent I think. So please commend her on doing a brilliant job.

    Service in general not great. Table booked for rooftop terrace arrived 8 mins before table time checked in on ground floor reception told to go upstairs to roof top restaurant and check in. Checked in at roof top restaurant told table not ready to come back asked where we could wait pointed over to the roof top bar. Busy there however waiter did find us table he said someone will let us know when table ready. Waited 30 mins waiter went over to find out came back said another few minutes meanwhile I received a phone call from The Ivy saying waiting for us are we coming? Explained checked in been waiting now 40 mins not happy some chap from restaurant then came to tell us table ready. This was 9.25pm. Took ages to take our order starters finally came out at 9.55pm and had another 25 minute wait for main course. Food was very nice once we got it!

    Was fortunate to be able to celebrate birthdays on the roof terrace with a group of friends. We had never been to The Ivy before and had high expectations. I’m pleased to say that the rooftop bar and restaurant lived up to those expectations. Great, friendly, attentive service. Very lively and loud atmosphere.

    After visiting a number of times yesterday’s visit was very poor from arrive at the roof terrace we had to wait 25 mins for our reservation and also for drinks. The toilets were below the standards that are acceptable- water all over the floor and also not cleaned properly. When moving into the brassiere there was water and limes on the floor under the table as if a drink had been spilt and just left there. We was given the wrong information about our bill after asking for the information 3 times. The manager that dealt with us was very efficient and she rectified a lot of the issues. My friends has never been before so I felt I let them down as they had very night expectations for The Ivy.

    Great food and ambience. £5 for a bottle of water too much and service charge at 12.5%. too much. The reason for this in America is different, should not enforce this here. Other than that it is a lovely restaurant and the staff are Great
