A spontaneous lunch at the Ivy was so delightful we booked lunch for the following day. The starter basket of zucchini fritti was larger than expected, but so tasty we finished every one - I suggest sharing.

Excellent restaurant for that special occasion or even just a welcome break from the busy city centre.
With the choice of their special daily menu or even some selections from the a la carte menus the prices are very reasonable indeed.
The service and attention to detail was really good indeed.
Certainly go there again.

We took friends to the ivy who had come from New Zealand and who had not been to Bath for 27 years.
They said it was the best experience of their holiday.

Food was poor. My fish was over cooked and the chips were stale. Service was excellent however. It was also very noisy in the dining area. I would say The Ivy Bath was better suited for large boisterous parties, not intimate or fine dining.

Decor beautiful, staff excellent, but a la carte not as tasty as set menu, for some reason. 'Music' (ie electronic sounds) is abysmal.

This is my all time favourite restaurant in Bath. We have been a few times to celebrate different occasions and it never fails to impress me with high food, attentive service and beautiful setting. I highly recommend- but beware, you will need to book in advance!

The room was lovely and the staff great. The food felt more like it was bought in rather than prepared fresh on site. Posh Cote Brasserie but way more expensive.

We really enjoyed our visit to The Ivy. A superb atmosphere, in fact everything was faultless and we felt thoroughly spoilt. We are both looking forward to our next visit.

Have been before and food was lovely and the whole experience was fab but this time I had steak and some of the paper was still stuck to bottom of steak !!!!!! My daughter also had steak and her bowl was full of quite a lot of water !!!! We only went for a light lunch so went for the set menu which tbh this time was quite poor - we were offered free coffee or dessert but we declined as wanted to finish our shopping and the manager decided to take off the 12.5 added gratuity which under the British law if I’m not happy with the service then that’s what I decline to pay not him to decide to remove so felt his attitude was actually quite arrogant -will not be returning and next time would visit cafe rouge opposite

I took my mum to The Ivy for lunch as I have had dinner with you before, the service was excellent, the food outstanding and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. Mum has travelled down to Bath from Truro that morning, she is 79 and needed a cal, relaxing lunch and it was perfect. We were not rushed and we were offered complimentary drinks at the end of our meal. Best restaurant in Bath and I have already made another reservation.

As always I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch, the restaurant itself is beautiful, the staff very polite and the menu and food perfect.
I live inSalisbury and I am afraid we have nothing to compare with The Ivy. It is always worth the journey.Thank you for being consistent, I have now visited at least six times.
Kind regards

Staff appropriately attentive with just enough contact. Had smoked salmon with rye bread for starters, followed by fillet steak which melted in the mouth. Good portion size and well presented but would expect nothing less of The Ivy.

Three ladies and a baby had a girls lunch here. We ate off the lunch specials menu, which was limited but adequate and good value. I’d like to see a few more dairy free dessert options, not everyone like the standard sorbets.
Overall it was a good experience, but felt much more like a “ chain” restaurant then The Ivy!

I do love visiting the Ivy in Richmond and Bath, however I was very disappointed that the tea was served with a teabag and not fresh tea leaves. Excellent service. The veggie cooked breakfast was delicious but it would have been 5*star perfect with a pot of fresh tea too. Thank you

A very nice Spanish waiter, whose name I can’t remember, who was perfectly charming, who couldn’t have been mire helpful. A good lunch!
