We booked a table for 8:45 but didn’t get seated until 9:45. Apart from that the staff were friendly and service was very good

Me and my partner visited Menagerie on Saturday night to celebrate my 21st Birthday. The first time visiting and it won’t be the last - it was amazing. Amazing people, amazing food & outstanding drinks! Could not fault it. The entertainment was fantastic & we was lucky enough to get seated next to the stage. We had the best night & it made such a special occasion even better. I will definitely be returning when I’m next in Manchester.

Fast service and amazingly polite staff. We were running late for our reservation and they were very understanding and had us seated on arrival. Food was extremely pleasant and came out very quickly. Drinks were lovely and the entertainment was top notch. Will definitely be coming again!

The service was extremely poor, they brought the wrong drinks to us 3 times. We had finished our main meals by the time the right drinks turned up.

Water wasn’t offered once it had ran out, the glass jug was removed and not returned.

Attention seemed to be on the larger tables.

When I’d booked I’d mentioned that it was my sisters 29th birthday. This was not acknowledged.

Over all a very disappointing visit.

Lovely food. Little too noisy for an afternoon booking as we wanted to have food and catch up with friends. Struggeld to hear each other. But absolutely beautiful place.

I had an amazing time here! My boyfriend and I went for the bottomless brunch for a valentine’s celebration and it was lovely. The waiters were very attentive and we were never without a drink. The food is stunning, there’s a great atmosphere and overall nice place to eat. Our only downfall is that there is no beer option on the bottomless brunch but we managed!

Food was nice however when we were asking a certain staff about the menu he wasn’t helpful and was intimidating. Therefore we felt uncomfortable

I have a nut allergy and was made to complete and sign a form before I was allowed to order (this could be highly embarrassing for someone) and then I was told that I wouldn’t be allowed to order ANY of the deserts (not even the the sorbets) because none of them were suitable for people with allergies - I dine out regularly and I have NEVER been to a ‘high quality’ restaurant and not been allowed to order any desert of the fairly extensive desert menu - very poor to not be able to cater for those with allergies won’t be returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone!!

Honestly the worst Bottomless brunch I’ve had in Manchester. Waited over 20mins for our table with no apology, then waited a further 15mins before getting our first drink. After agreeing a new start time with the manager for our 2 hours of bottomless drinks this was not passed on to the waiter who said we couldn’t have any more drinks before speaking with the manager again. We were celebrating our Mum’s birthday and had ordered the ‘Birthday Surprise’ when I had booked the table but took us 3 attempts at reminding the waiter before it came. We were constantly having to ask for a top up of our drinks. I appreciate it was peak time on a busy Saturday afternoon but the toilets were disgusting and had to ask for toilet roll as every single toilet had ran out. Food was okay and drinks were good, although mostly drank Prosecco. I’ve been to many bottomless brunch’s and never have we had to ask for a drink so often. Overall, fairly disappointed at the service and time keeping

Food wasn't at the quality i paid for and overpriced wine. Toilets were disgusting need cleaning on a regular and need redoing (fake tan all over the seats, door handles chipped away, floor was a mess) there was constant confetti falling from the ceiling which was a distraction, i had to get up and ask for service, coffee was cold just wasn't a great experience to recommend!

Average. If you want an Instagram go for a drink but for food I’d much rather go somewhere else, style over substance. Service was slow!

Absolutely loved it!

Travelled over from Leeds, the service was amazing, made to feel very welcome! All the staff was really friendly, we was looked after by a young gentleman from Italy, he made me friends Birthday very special. We both got Ribeye steaks which was very delicious & reasonably priced.

Definitely recommend & will be returning!

Thank youuuuuu :)

We were really looking forward to visiting Menagerie, but disappointed as we had to wait 1 hour for our table (which we had pre-booked).

We didn’t get an update as to when the table would be ready, and we had to approach the staff to ask which wasn’t the service we expected. Further, when we did finally get sat down and ordered drinks, we had to wait again for drinks - which got sent to the wrong table!

The atmosphere was brilliant, and couldn’t fault the food but the experience and service we had was very disappointing considering we booked in advance, and travelled a long way!

Absolutely beautiful meal for my friends 40th at the weekend. Staff were attentive and lovely, the truffle pasta with parmesan was probably one of the best meals I've ever had! The entertainment was a nice little touch. We will definitely be back!

I enjoyed the drinks and the service was great. Attentive and professional. I enjoyed my choice of food but my date did not. The couple at the side of us did not eat much of their dish neither and that was the let down dish which was the jerk chicken. Authenticity was not expected however the dish overall was extremely weak, the lack of flavour made it a very poor dish. The noise level of the music was louder than expected but I understand that reflects the nature of the atmosphere. I’d return but only in a group setting.

I went for a working lunch alone on the day if my birthday and they sent over a lovely little surprise. A shot and a martini in a very cute music box. Lovely touch made me smile and my work during lunch that much more enjoyable.

I had the prawn linguine and wow it was incredible! I’d come back just for that! I also had the truffle mac and cheese however the longer l took to eat it the salt seemed to settle in the middle of the bowl and so was incredibly salt, despite that it was still really good! Service was great and it’s a very Instagrammable place if you’re into that haha

Having visited several times before (and on both occasions-brought large parties) I decided to book a table and invite some friends for my birthday. I booked a table for 10.30 and paid a £60 deposit (with a minimum spend of £200) I was told to ore order my drinks which I did, by email and received a response. Anyway we arrived around 10.20, our table wasn’t ready. We went to the bar around half an hour later we finally got given our table, with no drinks apparently hadn’t received our Order even though I had a response to my email order! So another half an hour without drinks and a very rude waiter, who actually said “shut her up she’s going to do my head in ! “ regarding my friend. I complained to the manager who did give us some free shots but the same waiter continued to serve us. A while later several girls were up dancing on the walk way my friend also got up to dance. Only to be carried out of the establishment for having no shoes on? Little far fetched. A simple put your shoes on or you’ll have to leave may have solved the issue. So degrading for her and her husband. The whole experience was ruined and obviously with this issue we didn’t have our drinks or our table for the time we was allocated.

We had a large booking sat next to us which wasn’t a problem until they started going on the stage messing around and they wernt told to get down making me feel uncomfortable.
Our starters got served after our main which is pretty pointless and the truffle ravioli I picked was cold when it was served.
I think the business is trying to do too much and should just stick to one thing either remain just a bar with a sophisticated club vibe or just a restaurant.
