    The afternoon tea experience did not come up to expectations. The food was not very exciting , except the scones which were delicious. The shortbread biscuits were soft and cloying, the red velvet cake was stodgy.

    Food amazing and service brilliant. The decor may be not for every taste but I really liked it. Nice touch bringing out some sweets to celebrate our anniversary at the end. We had our meal and went to the theatre but did not rate the play so left at the break and went back and sat in the Ivy bar again! A great evening followed by a bad head in the morning! However we can’t blame the Ivy for that! It is very expensive (but it was still packed so they are getting something right) it’s not intimate with the table set up but we did not have anyone near us so it worked ok, but we did go in very early (5.30) Overall great for a special occasion but with a 12.5% service charge on top of a decent size bill we spent around £200 over the evening just us two) They do have a very good value set menu that looked worth a try (but it’s the wine prices that hit you hard) They have one in Cheltenham which we will try next time we are out there. Happy to recommend.

    We were all (4) on a post Christmas 'lower quantity' watch, so all went for the Fish and Chips. All excellent. I had asked for a corner table so we could chat and we were in a lovely corner, but a birthday party were next to us and they were very noisy but OK. Overall a good experience and we all were pleased to be back.

    Could not fault! We attended after seeing our wedding venue for the first time with parents and the team made it so special. I asked for a bottle of Prosecco on arrival and a note of the special occasion when placing my booking . I was running a few minutes late but the bottle was there on arrival and a cold glass poured by the server as I sat down. He also kindly congratulated me as I arrived. Food was timely not rushing us and delicious, followed by a surprise complimentary ‘congratulations’ dessert for both me and my fiancé. We’d ordered desserts separately so they kindly gave us a box to take home. The service team went above and beyond for us, I’d definitely book again and recommend for a special event. Thank you!!

    I really enjoy coming to The Ivy but this time I felt the food was lacking and the price didn't reflect the quality of food. If you are serving a 'special' of salmon, no vegetable, no salad, just literally bit of fish on the plate, how can this amount to £15 plus and why on earth are you not serving all your mains as a whole plate without having to order 'sides' on top of an already expensive main course? The roasted butternut squash/grains was reasonably good but lacking some zing to lift it, thus making it rather heavy which was disappointing. Pudding was frozen berries which really could have done with being served at room temperature, they were too cold, hard and big (raspberries) to eat comfortably. Since they were summer fruits this probably explains why they had to be frozen but it didn't really work as a pudding. Service was impeccable as was ambiance but sadly the rather average food offering didn't match price we paid for it.

    The service was good, the starter and desert excellent but the main course was a complete mediocre. Two filet steaks which lacked flavour and substance after being taken over by burnt grill flavouring. The seating arrangement was odd and thankfully the waiter was happy to alter the chair so we could face one another instead of another couple. Would we go back? Doubtful. Have we had better? Absolutely. Is it Ivy standard? No.

    We arrived early and were taken straight to a lovely table for two in the corner, we were celebrating my daughters 18th. They brought out a small cake with a candle in as a birthday surprise which was a lovely touch. The service was very professional, we had the wonderland afternoon tea which was lovely. Be prepared for a 12.5% service charge which most places in cities now. It came to £85 which included one champagne and one bellini. My only gripe was that there was a loud table near us with two young children but that is not the ivy's fault

    It was the second time I had had lunch with my wife at the Ivy in a month and it was, once again, an enjoyable experience. However, I felt that the lobster linguine that I had was rather mean and lacking in lobster for £29.95

    The service was a bit slow. We went for breakfast. We ordered toast and baked beans for our 20 month old grandson. His toast arrived with our meals but the baked beans arrived quite a while after and we had to remind staff twice! Can’t really understand why a simple thing as baked beans would take so long to arrive, especially as there seemed to be plenty of staff!

    The staff are excellent and the actual dining area is beautifully decorated and furnished. However the table we were given was no where near big enough for our drinks and food to the point where i had our toast resting on a ledge behind us and i ate my pancakes while holding the dish in my hand. The toast was awful chewy and cold. Everything else was perfect. You get treated so well in The Ivy by the lovely staff.
