Went there with the family, staff at the entrance were lovely , our waiter have exceptional service there when you needed him but not pestering. He was very polite smiley and engaging. The arancini was lovely , the steak sandwich was fine but thin on the ground with meat however chops were great. The cocktails were a hit . Will return again for afternoon tea as if looked great

We had a wonderful meal celebrating my husband's 40th birthday. It was a beautiful setting, exquisite food and great atmosphere. The service was attentive but our waiter forgot to take our wine order so our main course arrived before we had ordered wine. It was very quickly rectified and didn't spoil anything in the slightest but the restaurant wasn't packed so I guess just a slip up. Overall a wonderful meal. Thank you!

The prawn and calamari starter was a let down. I would look at this from a customers perspective, as it was underwhelming, I have had better in a local pub.

That said the rest of the food was great, the duck curry was fantastic, great quality duck breast, lovely sauce! The amount of rice was tiny not much more than a ramikin.

Had a fab time, the staff were great!

The Ivy Bath provides a special venue with high quality food and drink which ideally suits the elegant city of Bath. The interior is both smart and relaxed, the service is attentive but not over pretentious. We enjoyed excellent red wine, starters,(particularly the smoked salmon and crab mayonaise) and steaks for mains . A memorable meal.

The ambiance is quite plush and refined, with a number of "ladies who lunch" in evidence. The food was enjoyable and nicely presented, but the prices are distinctly on the high side. A meal for two with wine can easily cost £130 plus.

Staff excellent in all areas, meeting us at the entrance, escorting to the table and our waitress who provided superb service throughout the meal. Food was good value, cooked well served whilst hot which contributed to a very enjoyable lunch and experience. We have dined at various other Ivy’s - the Bath restaurant certainly maintains the high standards delivered when visiting an Ivy restaurant.

Nice ambiance and decor. Delicious food but the bacon was overcooked and toast wasn’t toasted more like bread. Poached eggs tad undercooked but was nicely presented.

24/01/2020,This was a celebration of my wife's birthday. Nothing of this was said to the staff. I was present with my wife and her sister. We had a wonderful corner table. Although the restaurant was full, we were able to have a private conversation amongst ourselves without being heard or disturbed by other guests. The staff were very attentive, the ambience was great and the food was fabulous. I will attend again and would strongly recommend The Ivy to my friends and anyone who loves fine dining.

Arrived at time of booking - were taken straight to our table. Mid-week so it was quiet which was nice and romantic. Our waiter was lovely and very attentive but not intrusive. Food was 10/10 as always, as were the cocktails!

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is very good when it arrives. We normally go for pre theatre lunch. 12.30-2pm
We had to ask someone to take our order at 12.50. The courses were slow in coming. We ordered coffee at 1.50 which arrived 2.10. We had to leave 2.15. Normally I love a long lazy lunch but when you are short on time the meal has to be prompt. We go nearly every month and will continue to do so. Saying all that the food is delicious

Delicious food in lovely surroundings. The staff were there when they needed to be but were not intrusive. The food was presented beautifully and portion sizes were spot on. Especially enjoyed the complimentary coffee at the end if our meal. Will definitely be back and would not hesitate to recommend.

We have dined at The Ivy a few times in the past year and have found it to be excellent on each of these occasions. It is a superb restaurant for a special occasion and equally rewarding for a casual working lunch.
We would whole-heartedly recommend it as an excellent place for those looking for a place to meet for that 'special' occasion

We were four for dinner and had a lovely time. Great starters but mixed feelings with mains. My black cod was very dry and I didn’t finish it. Didn’t complain to avoid spoiling my daughters birthday celebration. Perhaps I would have done so if somebody had asked? Fast, polite service overall.

We were late for our booking but the staff were extremely courteous and welcomed us. The ambiance was lovely. We all ordered the Mackerel Pate which was nice but served straight from the fridge so difficult to spread and also to get the full flavour, room temperature would have been better. Main course was lovely, 2x minute steaks and 2x Sea Bream. Dessert of chocolate mousse was delicious and the Creme Brûlée was also good but the 2x Camembert were both again served straight from the fridge. Not really appropriate for cheese nor really the standard I expected for The Ivy. I did speak to the waiter who thanked me for the feedback and said he would take it to the kitchen. Can’t ask for more! I would visit this restaurant again.
