    We were greeted by a very rude staff member, she made it very obvious she was annoyed when we asked to be sat at a table other than the one originally offered. The food was very nice but was spoilt when it came to dessert as they had ‘run out of cheese & biscuits!’ How can a restaurant run out of cheese? We were extremely disappointed. The staff didn’t seem bothered and didn’t suggest any alternatives.

    Food good, our waitress was lovely but having to deal with too many customers. More waiting staff required. Also please could you provide more vegetarian mains that aren’t vegan? Not all non meat eaters are vegan. Always a treat to visit The Ivy though.

    Not enough savoury options included in afternoon tea, too sweet heavy and too much chocolate. Very crowded in there, felt like people were on top of each other which made it feel a lot noisier. £10 service charge is extortionate and thankfully the waitress was very kind in taking it off and explains that she doesn’t see any of it anyway, a tip was left however i believe that was forced upon me. The value for money would of been a lot better if again, there was more savoury stuff.

    We greeted on arrivel.We were early but told our table was ready. We were taken to our table but actually thought we were a little close to the couple sitting next to us and not a,lot of room to put our belongings. We have booked an afternoon tea and champagne which was very nice and freshly made. I did visit the ladies whilst there and unlike the Cardiff Ivy felt it was a little cramped plus the cubicle I used felt needed a clean.

    The Ivy is probably one of my favourite venues because everything is usually perfect. Only once can I remember a poor experience, and that was in London at Christmas, when we were hurried and given poor service - due to staff Christmas party being imminent! However, were complained and were given a free bottle of Champagne on our next visit to the Ivy.

    It was my wide Birthday and first time in Ivy Bath.we loved the atmosphere and the decorations of the restaurant.Our waiter, dark hair, young man,didn't gave us any menu suggestions,my wife ordered from the set menu but the main didn't taste nice at all,she had the prawn curry(wasn't prawns but shrimps) which she had to send back and ordered different item from the main menu,byt yet again no recommendations from our waiter,she wanted to make sure she will enjoy her second course.We waited 10min for dessert menu and another 15min for someone to take our order.Overall,I would expect much warmer welcome from servers and menu suggestions,food was okay for the price we paid.

    I have eaten at various Ivy's around the UK. In Bath for a play at the Bath Theatre Royal, this was an easy pre-event dinner choice. I have to say that we were disappointed by the food, and my beef burger in particular. It was inedible. To be fair, the restaurant refunded me for the burger (dry, over cooked, not warm enough and lacking any taste or texture). For such a well known brand, this was a disappointing meal. A real pity.

However, we were a bit disappointed with the food, sandwiches were wonderful but the cakes were all chocolate based apart from the scones, which although wonderfully done it was very sickly with so much chocolate

    We visited The Ivy in Bath on 20 February for a birthday breakfast celebration. Every member of staff we encountered were superb - attentive, courteous, polite and happy. The table we were seated at was in a lovely position at the front of the restaurant and the food was exceptional. The birthday profiterole was a wonderful surprise as well. I couldn’t praise the visit enough. The staff who served us on the day were exceptional, and a credit to the restaurant- please ensure they receive this feedback

    We had chipped glasses on our table upon arrival, the service was a little slow and my food was just OK (the burger was a bit dry). Therefore, it wasn't value for money. If I'm honest, it wasn't what I would expect from an Ivy. This was the first time in Bath, I've eaten in the Bristol one quite a few times but Bath was a bit disappointing
