I'v been to the Ivy in Bath many times and it never fails to impress me. It is far superior to many of the other Ive Restaurants that have been rolled out throughout the country. Well done! The only problem is that it is almost impossible to get a booking for 5 people!

Second visit! First being a very nice brunch after my daughters wedding at the Guild Hall Bath. Second just over a week later for my wife's 60th birthday, both times very good, relaxed but still very attentive staff who joined in the mirth and high spirits of both occasions. I would highly recommend the Ivy to anyone who asks and those who do not!

Everything was brilliant, the food was delicious, can’t fault it at all but the thing that made our evening was our server Monika. She was so so lovely and her personalised service really did make our evening. She Really is a fabulous host and I cannot speak highly enough of her! My parents highly recommend the place and we are so happy we went, we will absolutely be back and will happily recommend to friends and family!

I'm a vegetarian. There are a few vegetarian mains. My favourites are the Roasted butternut squash with grains (it also looks very pretty) and the Sweet potato Keralan curry, served with rice. Love the Salt-crusted sourdough bread too. I had the curry this time, unfortunately the rice was under cooked. The middle was hard and starchy. Apart from that, everything else was great.

The ambience, service and decoration of the restaurant oozes charm, complete with smart staff uniforms and groovy art. However, the plates of food are relatively small and overpriced given the quality of the ingredients. Overall, I really enjoyed The Ivy, but more so for everything else bar the food. Would be very happy to return to try afternoon tea/lunch/drinks. Thank you.

Great food but on this occasion visit was spoilt by rather loud music which my 88 year old mother found hard to tolerate.
Also chef was unable to change Tabasco for Worcester sauce to enable me to have my first choice dish of steak tartare. Disappointed!

Didn't enjoy the current fixed price menu as much as last months which had an amazing crab stater which I was hoping to have again. If I hadn't been three weeks ago I guess I'd have rated it higher this time. The food was good, there was a delay between courses that the manager spotted (well done in a busy service) and apologised for and sorted out for us and the adjacent tables immediately. The waitress hadn't noticed the problem.

I'd prefer a table at the front as the back is very lively and loud but fun. I don't like having a 12.5% service added on regardless; why not just make the basic price more and say service is included.

Very nice experience. What I loved was the fact that there was a nice atmosphere but you still had a level of privacy because there is enough space between you and the next table. The waiter was courteous and had a sense of humour.

The food is lovely, the setting and ambiance is to die for but unfortunately we somehow seemed to be very overlooked the entire evening. Our main courses arriving very late due to a mix up, other tables next to us seemed to be having service throughout however we sat in the middle almost feeling invisible. I would return purely on the food and decor/atmosphere alone, but I did feel sad having had a drinks order forgotten and then our main food. When you’re dining the service is 50% of the experience.

Everything was excellent apart from the wait for the drinks. Only 2 of us and had pre booked table. Did have to wait for an hour to get a drink !! Would have liked the option to have the drink i ordered pre dinner on arrival and order something different to eat with my food. All arrived more or less at the same time.
