From minute on arrival to when we left, We were treated amazingly. The atmosphere was beautiful and the customer service was second to none(thanks to Aaron). I booked it for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was a nice place considering 5 other people were also there to celebrate their birthday. I would come back. Food was nice however slightly overpriced and could be better.

An excellent visit. They have excellent Covid processes in place which meant your visit was safe, but still special as the processes were discreet

Lovely place, really fantastic service from our waiter who worked exceptionally hard. I would have preferred the seating a little more spaced out during these Covid times.

Love coming to the Ivy. I prefer the Asia menu and wish there was a little more choice for the mains to be honest. However, the food is always amazing and worth every penny!

Went for my birthday- Rishi scheme on so nice surprise. We had crispy duck salad starter which was amazing - beautiful flavours, light but a good size portion. 1 had the pea soup and this was pure theatre plus very tasty. Mains were lobster linguini, fish and chips and minute steak. All good portion size and very tasty. Chips were particularly nice. Plenty of lobster, not too spicy but you could add your own chilli flakes - which I did. Desert was ice cream served with a home made shortbread biscuit and the other 2 had flambed apple tart - this was beautiful. Thin, crisp pastry with fine sliced apples. Would recommend. Cocktails were well made and tasty. Prosecco and desert wine all fine. This is a beautiful restaurant for special occasions, or just lunch out whilst shopping. Take advantage of the Rishi deal.

We had a lovely meal for our mums 60th birthday. It was easy to forget about what is going on in the world. Our waiter Aaron was amazing and very welcoming and the food was delicious.

We will definitely come again.

Treated my daughter to lunch. Was fab. Was asked if we wanted to go to the terrace bar for a drink pre lunch, lovely.
Lunch was fab, everything we chose for the menu was so tasty, beautifully presented and great dishes. The apple tarte was delightful flambé at the table. Will absolutely go again. Wasn’t too busy due to the current situation but we absolutely saw that as a plus.

We had a nice time. My only fault was that we had a party of 3 and we were sat at a table for 2 so I was sat half way where people we walking which made social distancing impossible and made me feel a bit uneasy

A lovely experience. I felt the Ivy managed everything perfectly! All social distancing guidelines were adhered to whilst maintaining a very normal atmosphere and experience! I prefer no face shields etc as have found that the eating out experience has been made clinical in other places. The perfect level of safety was achieved whilst ensuring the atmosphere was not impacted. Excellent service, great food and we were moved up to the roof top after our meal for drinks. Thank you for a perfect day out.

Everything was excellent the only thing I wasn't too happy about was when two members of staff obviously doing what they were told to but stood in front of us with an iPad nodding in our direction and speaking to each other, I didn't think it was very professional in a place like the Ivy.
