    Cocktails are basically just gin and tonic with fruit in. Food was average and table too small to even fit it on. The decor was nice but would not go again.

    Staff who arranged table for me wasn't honest that saying there were no seats available and air conditioner was not working properly on the upstairs. However, there were many tables were available and air conditioned and much cooler than ground floor. 36◦C outside today and I needed a cool place and got it in the end. The staff who was serving my table had an accident next to my table. The floor was wet and she had a very nasty fall. Being a nurse I automatically sprung up and assisted her middle of my meal. She seemed disoriented and shocked, and looked very much in pain and couldn't get up. Poor staff! She was working so hard. I hope she is alright??? The restaurant floor is heavily decorated with patterns and lights, and there are no ways you could notice of any spillages. It's very pretty floors but watch out.

    The service was efficient and professional. Limited choice of cocktails. Wine expensive although the range offered was good. Unfortunately two of the starters were cold and our rice and side dishes were undercooked and also cold. Overall disappointing and expensive for a poor meal.

    We opted for the tasting experience menu for 4. The food was generally good, although one of the party was allergic to avocado which was included in several dishes - no offer was made to substitute any of these for something without avocado. Also, we ordered 3 espresso martinis at the end of the night which were incredibly weak and watery. The serving staff generally seemed very inexperienced and quality of service was patchy. For instance, the white wine was left in an ice bucket some way from the table and we had to help ourselves eventually. Also, we ordered a bottle of red at the start, but had to ask where it was halfway through the meal. Also, I was bumped a.couple of times by a waiter passing by with no apology. The ambiance is great, but I think we will go back to the Ivy Castle View in future where the service has always been far better (as well as the espresso martinis).

    Shocked at our experience. Have been trying to get a table for months and was so disappointed. Everything from music being far too loud (even the waiters couldn’t hear us), serving us raw frozen edamame, forgetting one of our starters, forgetting our drinks, leaving our table cluttered with dirty dishes and glasses, not bothering to wipe our table off, “fillet” of beef so fatty it was inedible, an extremely bland and tasteless desert all amounted to a shocking evening with an eye watering bill to add insult to injury.

    Front of house and waiting team were lovely and helping us to choose from an abundance of drinks and food with some solid recommendations. But that's where the fun kind of stopped. Our first course took over an hour to arrive and the main courses took over 45 minutes to arrive after the first course had been removed from the table (which was a good 20 minutes after we had finished it). Its a great shame as the food was very tasty and the service team good, but service out of the kitchen was absolutely diabolical. This was a 18:45 booking on a Tuesday so lord only knows what it would be like on an 20:00 booking Saturday night.

    Lovely decor and ambience - pleasant staff although they didn't write our order down so, what do you know, they got it wrong - food comes out when its ready but to have a plain rice side dish come out last after all other dishes (even after one was sent back for being the wrong one) was silly... one course had obviously been sat for a while before delivery as was luke warm. Portions felt a bit mean - one tiny bit of sashimi, almost half a glass as a 'full' measure of £9 prosecco - and not thought through; stir fried veg was great lumps of pak choi which were impossible to eat with chop sticks! Manager was very responsive to our complaints though; we would definitely give it another go as its a lovely spot and a nice change from the other Guildford eateries.

    We visited for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and were really looking forward to a sophisticated night out. The food was good, the service was terrible - quick to ask "was the food was ok" and "can we get you anything else" but then we had to constantly chase the anything else's we wanted, and some of it never arrive! - and the god awful techno music they were pumping out felt like we were at a nightclub. The decor felt quite tacky and the bill was steep for the quality of service provided. Does not warrant its reputation. the normal Ivy is far superior. Style over substance, or as my dad would say, 'it was all fur coat and no knickers'...

    Great venue. Items out of stock. Ordered wine. 20 minutes later I was told it was out of stock. The suggested alternative was £35 more expensive. One waiter turned up with the first part of our order. He was so over stimulated it was hilarious. Apart from when he threw the food onto the table. A hard state to the duty manager and he was removed and they started taking us seriously. Great venue but they’ll need to get their act together .

    The food was very good quality and tasteful and the decor is amazing. It is quite expensive for what it was though. We spent £96 for two people for lunch having 4 dishes and sparkling water. There is an automatic service charge of 13% added to the end of the bill.

    Our dinning experience was good the venue is beautiful. The service was nice however we had a problem with a misunderstanding about a birthday cake I thought I had ordered when booking which I was told would be £25. The day before I was called and told I had to order the cake 48 hours before. I expressed my disappointment and they sorted a cake which I was told was £26. On the bill the cake was £28. It’s only a couple of pounds but the organisation wasn’t good and I would have been very unhappy if I hadn’t check on the phone call the day before and we just had no birthday cake on the day. Also I understand the food comes when it’s ready however the steamed veg was cold by the time they brought any meat out. Also they need to be better with offering cutlery as we were waiting on a few occasions to catch someone’s attention as we couldn’t use the chop sticks provided. The food was very good though and I would go again but considering it is an Ivy they were a few points I’d like to raise.
