    Disappointment came from the expectation that I had of the quality of food which was too processed. This came as a sharp contrast to the perceived quality of the establishment . So really this was in the main overpriced . P

    A wonderful early dinner. Best steak I’ve ever had. Daria our server is a credit to The Ivy and all the staff were impeccable. I found the music way too loud once the room emptied but it was turned down when I asked.

    I always enjoy visiting The Ivy - and on this occasion I was treating a lovely friend who had not been before. I had told how lovely it always is, guaranteed excellence etc. We both felt that it wasn’t excellent ☹️ we had the burger which was delicious but the chips were overcooked which spoiled them. For dessert I had crème brulee but it was too sloppy and the top was soft whereas it should be crunchy. The service however was perfect as it always is. I ate all of my meal despite it not being perfect but that’s the first time that it’s been tinged with disappointment. Thank you for seeking feedback, I hope it’s useful. Carol

    Fantastic service. We weren't given children's menus but our waitress went and got some to ensure the kids got to order something they wanted. She was so understanding when a pot of sauce was knocked on the floor. Makes such a difference having soneone conscientious about their job and our dining experience.

    I have been to the Ivy several times.. this time was for brunch and we felt very rushed. The food came very quickly but it was a Luke warm muffin and felt like it had all been prepared ahead and just sitting around… not cooked freshly. We were presented with the bill almost as we finished our last mouthful of food and it felt like they couldn’t wait to get us out of there to start with the next table. Overall the service was poor and it just felt like you were on a conveyor belt. Very very different to my last visit to the Ivy.

    First visit to this particular Ivy. Decor and initial greeting good. Water order taken as we were seated but seemed slow to come. Starters were good. Caesar salad main course was very ordinary. Fishcake main course needed a sauce of some sort as it was quite dry. Spinach side dish would have been better without the topping that seemed to dry it out. We didn’t stay for a dessert.

The surprise candle in my daughter’s dessert was a lovely touch. We would definitely recommend to visit and will be returning.

    Food very good but my enjoyment was spoiled by the door to the disabled toilet being ajar on four separate occasions. Although the door does not face into the seating area of the restaurant there is a mirror on the inside of the door so the toilet and wash hand basin could be seen from where I was sat, which possibly was the only seat that would be affected. I did not ask a member of staff to close the door as the restaurant was very busy and although I tried to catch the eye of a waiter I failed. What was quite frustrating was the number of staff that walked past the open door and just ignored it. One particular waiter who was serving the area where I was sat did close the door, but this was after several minutes of it being open.

    My first visit to The Ivy Brasserie Bath, although familiar with other locations, left much to be desired. Despite notifying them of my nut allergy in advance, my options were limited to the tasteless and watery prawn cocktail, featuring a disproportionate ratio of tiny prawns to larger ones. The main course, a typically enjoyable fishcake, disappointed as it was unexpectedly deep-fried, resulting in excessive greasiness. Additionally, my request for long stem broccoli as a side, due to allergies, was denied due to a shortage, further dampening the dining experience. Overall, a very disappointing meal that fell short of expectations, particularly considering the reputation of The Ivy Brasserie.

    Having dined recently in Montpellier - and had a great experience we thought we'd try the Ivy in Bath. The food was equally good and the service from a, relatively young waiter, was excellent - given that we were a little boisterous from the opening Champagne Mojito. Would we go again: definitely. We've eaten at 3 Ivy's in 3 months and each have been equally excellent

    We attended for my partners 30th meal as a family of 4. We waited for at least 25 mins before being offered a drink, this set the theme for the night. We were forgotten about. The food arrived after an hr to which was wrong, we sent it back. It then arrived 10 mins later and had been corrected, but items were missing. We got to desert and waited 30 minutes to order three puddings and a coffee. The Coffee never arrived until we were paying the bill. At this stage we were so ready to leave. We counted endless members of management approaching other tables when they issues, but they did not even approach our table. Less than satisfactory.

    My Mum and I were put in the bar area for dinner, surrounded by tables that hadn’t been cleared and our own table had not been correctly laid out. The staff were welcoming and kind, although service was slow with no check backs. My mum has a fish allergy; we were advised by staff there may be cross contamination with the chips in the fryer so we asked for bread instead. We were then charged for it? We’re not local to the area and booked with the assumption we’d have a lovely meal. Very disappointed.
