Had a good time as usual. Often feel price isn’t on high side especially for wine.

Having read recent reviews I’m somewhat surprised. Food was amazing service outstanding. The only negatives is the price of still water, the service charge especially if you don’t feel confident to ask for it to be removed and the lighting. However would still return and recommend

Look at their Insta to see the demographic of the clientele The Ivy love.

So excited to go but so let down by the food and service.

I know fish can swim but never knew they swim in oil!

Never going again.

We thought there was insufficient spacing between most tables in these times of coronavirus. A starter of tempura prawns and squid was quite minimal and had only two prawns. Mains were enjoyable but not quite warm enough.

Wonderful experience. Attention to detail from arrival to leaving was second to none. Our waiter was a delight, courteous, helpful and very knowledgeable.
Food was perfection, steak cooked as requested. I could not fault anything about the day.
It was my granddaughters birthday and the cake and candle completed the day.
I would certainly book again.

The food was vile - the Chicken Melinase was undercooked. Overpriced for what it was. Not a large variety on the menu.

Very good atmosphere and feel, didn’t seem pretentious and felt very welcomed, only criticism would be the fact there was no sweet/cake/pudding for vegans only fruit and yoghurt (and £8.50 at that), there are loads of vegan versions available of the classic desserts in other restaurants and cafes so there’s no reason why chefs of your standard can’t be creating similar things. I only say this because the birthday girl was a vegan and she had no exciting option for dessert. Other than that it was very enjoyable.

Had the Shepherds pie, very tasty but as a main it was just too small. Had a Creme brûlée, something I have regularly here but had curdled. Service was great and they replaced quickly with a perfect one. Has ever atmosphere and service very good.

Booked a table for 8pm and the table wasn’t ready until 8.30pm. Then our drinks and food took forever to come out so when it was 9.45pm we were told to hurry up as we need to be out for 10pm closing time. There was no faulting the food but not a great experience when you’re paying that much and it’s because of their delayed service that we had to scoff down our food and wine to make it out in time.

We had great expectations of the Ivy and they were definitely met. The service was impeccable and a special mention has to go to our waiter Thanos who made our experience what it was. Would definitely recommend to others and will be returning.

Really enjoyed The Ivy experience and will definitely be going back. Our only negative comment is that the lighting was a little too dark as we both struggled to read the menus.
