    The ambience and the service are both very good, although the noise level was obtrusive, largely due to several crying children. The service, however, was very slow with long waits between courses. This was not the fault of the waiting team but appeared to come from the kitchen. When we booked, for 1.00p.m., we were told that they required the table back by 3.00p.m. Even though we only had one shared dish for the table as a starter and two courses, there was no way we were going to make that deadline. It was well after 3.30 before we had finished. The food started well but declined steadily throughout the meal, A dish of Courgettes, cut into thin chips and fried, was excellent, as was a plate of Coppa Ham. Sourdough Bread (£5.95extra ) was on the heavy side. Fishcakes were so-so. A salad of Watermelon was well presented but nondescript. I had a Steak, which was overcooked. (I had not been asked how I would like it done when I placed the order. ) The chips were just short of being sufficiently crisp. The pricing of the Wine is not very friendly. £12 for a glass of South American Merlot equates to a bottle price of about ten times its retail value.

    The food was delicious and our server was fantastic. We didn’t catch her name but she was so helpful and attentive. She was blonde and Polish I believe. Can’t praise her enough, made the whole experience fantastic! We came in on a Wednesday and it was reasonably busy but the vibes inside were great

    Food wasn’t as good as my previous visits. Coffee wasn’t very hot so a hotter replacement followed but tasted burnt. Kippers weren’t as moist and smaller than the last time I had them. Waiting staff weren’t as friendly but it was my friend’s first visit and she loved it. Still a fabulous venue.

    We were very disappointed for the following reasons: The breakfast omelette was very small and not good value for money. All 4 meals did not come at the same time. By the time 2 guests received their pastries the other two had almost finished their omelette and smoked salmon. Coffee (pot) not very hot.

    Had a lovely evening at the Ivy Bath. We were served by Ian who was very knowledgeable about the menu and made sure that nothing was too much trouble. All of the team were incredibly friendly and the food was outstanding. The only down side was that our table was positioned in a corner between two other tables, which meant getting to/from the toilet was a bit tricky. But other than that - a great time!

    Cheese soufflé served frigid in the middle, hot on the outside on a hot plate had to be sent back. Ribeye steak was requested medium rare and served very rare / blue in the middle. Quality ingredients but served in a way that’s practically a health hazard. Didn’t complain about the steak, but they realised after the fact how rare it was and voluntarily removed it from the bill. As soon as the waitress came to take our order she appeared angry/ miserable to be there, extremely unwelcoming and awkward, yet bizarrely 2 minutes later was laughing and smiling with other customers. Waitress didn’t bother clearing the table of dirty plates from the appetiser before bringing the starter - asked us to move the dirty plates over so she could put new ones down, and still didn’t take dirty ones away. Forgot to bring us a bottle of water had to ask again twice. Halfway through the meal other staff seemed to take over our table so I suppose they realised there was a problem - they were perfectly nice but it didn’t make up for how awful the first waitress had been. Terrible experience, disappointing.

    The shepherds pie was lukewarm. Even though we were told it had just come out of the oven, hence the wait. The tables are positioned too close together. We could enjoy our neighbours chat more than our own. Generally disappointed.

    The food was absolutely lovely. Unfortunately the staff were extremely slow even though it was not busy. Once we had been served our tea we waited about an hour for the food. Towards the end of our visit the restaurant quietened out and even still, we had to shout for a waiter/waitress - when they were around! Just extremely disappointed as this was a treat for my Mum & Stepdad but the service was extremely slow and not as you would expect when you think of the Ivy.

    I booked this table to celebrate my Husband’s birthday - we waited 40mins for our first drinks order to arrive. We then had our wine delivered to the table but put in a cooler out of reach and as the server was not always available we needed to move it closer ourselves. When our starters arrived the bread we ordered took 10 mins to arrive. The main courses were all goo except the vegetarian burger that arrived over cooked this was changed after a complaint and refunded. We’ve visited The Ivy a few times - however, the standard of service was very poor and in our opinion didn’t match the price tag.

    Seated at a table next to the serving station. Machine being jabbed at by waitresses nonstop and beeping, all six inches next to us. Politely asked if we could have another table or wait until another table became free, and was rudely told no.

    Hello I would like to draw the attention to the afternoon tea today. I am a faithful customer to the Ivy in Bath. I did’t want to make a fuss today as it was a gift, but I will say that from my past experience of the afternoon tea, today’s lacked imagination, taste and POOR quality ingredients, even the jam was disgusting and to top it all an overload on chocolate of everything. Very disappointed and hope that the afternoon tea returns to how it should be for the Ivy. Kind regards
