this was my fifth visit and each time it gets better. the food was the best I've had with you. The staff waiters have always been good but this French waiter (Francis?) was particularly helpful and kind and extremely charming. I shall come again.Such a treat.
We loved the setting and the people were very attentive. Food was great.
Came to Bath Ivy for Afternoon tea for my 21st Birthday. Beautiful atmosphere, lovely scones and great service. Recommend and will be coming back.
Excellent dining experience - we will return as we enjoy the Ivy menu and good service. One of the best restaurants in town!
We came to the Ivy to celebrate my birthday and as a belated Mother's Day celebration with my Mum. The restaurant is beautiful, and we had afternoon tea which was fabulous. It didn't get off to a good start as our table wasn't ready for us and initially the service was hopeless. We were totally ignored and 2 tables who arrived after us were served while we were ignored - just as we were contemplating walking out my Mum caught the eye of a waiter who came and took our order. We had the champagne afternoon tea which was simply delicious - both the savoury and sweet items, all lovely. Great choice of tea and lovely, dry champagne and suddenly (I assume the shifts changed) we had a fantastic, chatty waiter who was very attentive and provided the sort of service we had been expecting. We will come back and try other time slots and hope the service will be good all the way through our meal.
Very tasty food with excellent service in a nice atmosphere.
This was our first visit - Sunday Brunch at 12.30. We had heard a lot of good things about the place but, unfortunately, we (there were 4 of us) were all disappointed. The food was very ordinary and we are unlikely to return.
A flaccid and bland tasting dinner that I'd sooner forget. There are better local alternatives, so without a significant improvement then the game for this Brasserie is up. Great interior, good location and a pretty good atmosphere, but this is only part of the story for any restaurant. As to the fact that tables are presently difficult to obtain and booked, this is a self-fulfilling prophecy... the lack of table availability suggest that the place should be good, but at the moment there really is no delivery so the myth continues.
Fantastic looking restaurant and ambience. Sadly didn’t cater well for food intolerances
Good extension of the Ivy brand - having only been to the main restaurant before this was a first visit to one of the brasserie chain. It’s not a “destination” restaurant like the original but the food was good, ambience relaxed and overall good value. Service from waitress was spot on. Would definitely visit again.
Lovely restaurant with great service and food was superb
Thoroughly enjoyed and I'm hard to please being a chef myself. Amazing decor, food and staff made it a fantastic experience. We will be back !
The ambience was just so lovely and the staff couldn’t do enough for you. Wonderful service and such a beautifully decorated restaurant it took the experience to a whole new level. Such reasonable food prices and a gorgeous afternoon tea.
Lovely interior design and attention to detail. Chicken sandwich and chips on brunch menu very bland though. When the female waitress told the person I was dining with try my drink to see if she wanted the same I wasn’t impressed- it was a business lunch and she should have been offered a small sample from the bar- it was awkward for us both. Salt was empty too and we had to pile up our coats and shopping behind a pillar.
Lovely Saturday lunch, served upstairs. Zucchini fries to die for!
Wow!! What a find!! Beautiful restaurant, scrumptious food and wonderful staff. Lunch was fab, this is definitely 1st choice for lunch/supper next time we visit Bath. Thank You
Good food. Great service. Special but doesn’t take itself too seriously.
My boyfriend and I both had a lovely breakfast! I had pancakes, they were lovely the only thing that I would've liked to change, is the fact that (for me personally) there was not enough strawberry sauce. My boyfriend had eggs royale, which he enjoyed. Overall, the food was great and the atmosphere was even better! The brasserie itself is absolutely gorgeous! The staff were very polite, and helpful. I would definitely recommend!
My third visit this week! Friday night pre -Theatre Royal, Bath. Lovely service from Harriet , hang on to her. My steak was over-done, but quickly re-placed . Still not as tasty as it could be, check suppliers? Husband said his dry martini was excellent and he was comparing to America from where he'd just returned.
And 'welcome' much better than earlier in the week. keep going!
Good food, nice menu choices, friendly service and majestic surroundings. What’s not to like? Especially good value is the set lunch/pre-Theatre deal.
Given a lovely table and location. Environment was beautiful and felt very relaxed dining experience. However only thing that let it down was some of the good game out cold and we had to send it back but this was done swiftly.
The atmosphere was good- felt like a London restaurant but in Bath. Service was okay, felt like they wet me trying too hard- also ordered the wrong bottle of wine
This was our second visit and it lived up to our memories of the first time. Excellent food, the salted caramel sauce with our vanilla ice cream was to die for. Attentative waiters and good ambience with beautiful art deco surrondings. Would strongly recommend but a wee bit pricey.
Our special birthday booking exceeded expectations and our expectations were reasonably high - excellent food (even our 11 year old daughter ate everything off her plate which is usually unheard of), excellent service, excellent ambience. My husband & I both said it was one of the best meals we have ever had. We were then very impressed with not only the drama of the deserts but the exquisite taste, followed by special delicious birthday chocolates - just the best.
We are looking forward to our next booking.
Just celebrated my 70th Birthday at the Ivy and had a fabulous time.
Lovely food, great service - this was my second visit looking forward to my third!
Another fantastic visit to the brilliant Ivy in Bath. Again, the food was awesome, service fantastic and ambience was perfect. We couldn’t have had a better lunch. Thank you to the brilliant staff for making it so perfect.
Arrange to have lunch for my sons birthday
But unfortunately we did not stay to eat as there was only 2 vegatrain oppitons and 1 of them was a salad!
Not a good choice of restaurant if you are a vegetarian!
Excellent, nice vibe, fun and interesting menu, a real change for Bath, enjoyed it so much we ran through lunch and stayed for dinner!
Delicious food in lovely setting BUT the coffee was not good at all ...no excuse now that you can get a good cup of coffee in most places !
Lovely ambience. The staff were very courteous and efficient with great attention to detail during our visit. As expected, the food was excellent too.
Enjoyed our meal very much and the service was good. Lovely atmosphere
Good menu to choose from and overall we had a lovely meal.
Arrived really early and table was available so two of us caught up over a glass of champagne while we waited for the others. Great time had by all.
Lovely food, a little pricey but to be expected I suppose
Have been twice for lunch this week. Food and service so much improved. I still have issues with the initial greeting in the hall. Still have not been welcomed properly, don't like being greeted with "Hi guys' or being kept waiting while staff decide what table to take me to. This does not happen in London. Otherwise the staff are doing a great job, and it is a lovely place.
Fabulous food, great cocktails, beautiful ambience and fantastic art on the walls, overall package is perfect.
Was a lovely experience and the staff were all lovely, attentive and knowledgeable.
I have been the the Ivy in Bath a few times now and have enjoyed it each time. Top quality experience with great service, delicious food and a great atmosphere. The fist time was with a large group and the last time was just two for a special occasion. I would happily recommend it.
Food and service was excellent. Loved the atmosphere. Would suit the everyday or special occasion. And a lovely change from the generally overpriced small country pubs!
