We attended The Ivy for celebrate my mums birthday, upon arrival the staff where really welcoming and polite. We arrived 15 minutes early and was seated right away. Throughout the night the waitress and staff where very attentive. The food and drinks arrived quickly. The food was outstanding and was definitely worth it! Also, they had an amazing selection of vegan and vegetarian options which one of us had. The vegan food I chose was amazing and was probably some of the best vegan food I’ve had at a restaurant. Without our request the waitress put a candle in my mums desert as we was celebrating her birthday, this was not from our request and was such a lovely touch from the waitress and my mum was over the moon. Overall, we would 100% recommend and would defiantly return to The Ivy!

we had the set meal, the chips appeared to be prebought and poor. The goujons were gorgeous and the tartare sauce yummy ( homemade)

We had a very good time at the Ivy for a special day of our daughter. The food was second to none. Our waiter was far beyond compare. He was so attentive and gracious all the time. It’s a shame I didn’t get his name.
The only thing I’m not impressed is the fact that the receptionists seems to be more concerned of how they look and barely smiled. You want to be welcomed with a warm smile especially if you’re paying premium for your lunch. Perhaps you can let them to be more customer friendly.

I have visited the Ivy several times since it has been open so that in its entirety shows that I am blown away by the whole experience as I keep returning especially when its a birthday.
The whole ambience as well as the opulent surroundings make the difference it feels luxurious
The Ivy team work cohesively to ensure your visit is slick , seamless and special no matter who walks through the door.
Its evident all team members are knowledgeable nd enjoy their roles without being arrogant.
We felt as though we were looking after from the start to leaving and nothing was too much trouble
The food was stunning well presented , plentiful and tasted divine.
I will continue to return to the Ivy regularly with my family and friends as I have always had a fabulous experience plus I love eating and drinking
So here is my advice to the Ivy continue what you are doing as you are nailing it treating every customer with equal importance and long may you prosper thank you

The initial welcome was frosty and we were asked to wait in the rooftop bar it would’ve been much more appropriate to put us in the restaurant bar our waiter however was good. Food was good but there were missing elements which were replaced quickly and adjustments were made to the bill. Not my best experience of The Ivy.

Nice food and service though having asked for an extra portion of chips (twice) it still didn't arrive. The ambience was good but the music was too loud and frenetic and it got in the way of decent conversation.

An outstanding first class restaurant that is lavishly decorated and is very well staffed and managed.
Superb back ground music adds to the great ambience and the food does the setting justice.
A must visit restaurant.

The full package.
Great food, lobster linguini and steak tartare were excellent, interesting booze list, nice puds, beautiful decor with a wow factor, great staff, attentive and friendly, love the uniform btw. Hard to think of any location in London, Singapore or Vegas that manages to do everything so well. Shame some scruffy punters couldnt be bothered to dress up.

Was mostly good, didn’t expect frozen chips when ordering thick cut chips, when ordering sweet potato side expected whole potato rather than three fingers and when pate starter was served had to wait for the bread to come separately, apart from these small niggles it was good

We had an amazing time. We always do. Food, service and atmosphere amazing as always. One issue though, was that for a family of four, the table was waaaay too small. We were seated in a booth at the back near the fire escape. This did spoil what was a lovely meal as all our food and drinks did not fit on the table and we were very squashed. Thank you though for a lovely meal. Our server was excellent.
