    We had a really lovely evening. The food was excellent (steak tartare was my partner’s favourite) and there was a good selection on the veggie menu. I really can’t praise the staff enough, they were superb.

    The Ivy as usual was fabulous. Food was first class, the venue is very pretty - as was the new decor and flowers on the ceiling in the ladies loos. Only downside was service was very slow, which it never had been before.

    We arrived at the Ivy with the expectation of great food and a high standard of service, as we have dined at the Ivy in other locations such as Marlow, Buckinghamshire. However what we received was the polar opposite. Firstly, no waiter came to take our order and the host had to step in. When we received the food, it was mediocre. The macaroon appeared to be mint flavoured, although it stated almond and lavender on the menu. The pickled cucumber sandwiches were soggy and the chicken brioche roll lacked flavour which was a huge disappointment. The waiters did not clear any unnecessary utensils and crockery from our table, leaving us with little room to eat. They didn’t bother to come over and clear my empty glass and I had to call someone over to order more drinks. No one removed the empty dishes from the tea, however we did notice other tables were receiving better treatment and having their tables cleared without hesitation. We weren’t asked if the food was any good at all. Again, the staff asked other tables. No eye contact was made with our table either. Again, other tables received this. When the waitress came to clear the plates, she thought we were still eating, despite our cutlery placed in the appropriate manner to signify we had finished our meals for quite some time. We asked for the bill and we waited over 15 minutes to pay. We had our cards ready and yet no one paid attention to us. Funnily enough they managed to attend to other tables who wanted to pay. I must ask, did we look as if we didn’t belong in the Ivy? Did we appear “poor” and not worth the time? Was the lack of service due to the fact we look incredibly young? Did we look as if we were children who don’t understand the concept of “dining out”? I think you need you need to review your menu and I think you need to review the training of your staff. We felt discriminated against and we will not be back. I honestly wish we hadn’t paid the service charge.

    A very mixed bag. The place was full and there were obviously not enough staff. We had to wait a long time for the food to be brought and my husband's fish and chips wasn't great. His chips were very overdone. I had two vegetarian starters as a main course and they were both excellent. We were both given complementary profiteroles as it was our wedding anniversary and they were really excellent. I think without that we would have felt disappointed.

    The food was immaculate, scallops and lobster tasty, portion on lobster a little small for £29. Fish and chips let down by the chips, the fish itself was top level. The service: almost felt like an inconvenience to the staff for eating here. Felt hurried along, and almost like the staff were too good for us. Summary: Service really let down the potential of the restaurant as the food was lovely.

    Disappointing meal, had high hopes for a lovely evening as the ivy seems to be very popular, but a typical chain company will not be back. Support local in future. everything was over cooked Paid £17.00 for a over cooked dry breaded chicken breasts... most expensive chicken I have ever had you have to order sides separately as nothing comes with the meals. The fish was over cooked, dry and flavourless ..

    I took a friend here for her birthday. The decor is lovely but apart from that I wasn't very impressed. I had eggs Benedict and the poached egg was over done and hard inside. Service was poor, the waitress poured alot of wine onto my plate instead of my glass and I felt I was being a nuisance, not a paying customer. Have been once, no intentions of returning.
