Had a fantastic evening in terms of the food, surroundings and service from the moment we entered the building and throughout. Bar staff were also superb in their manner and service. The setting is great and allows for true escapism whilst in there. Ate within the Brasserie and the food was delightful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to those seeking a special night whether celebratory or just looking to treat yourself.

Great venue with very attentive but also friendly service at the table.
I have enjoyed our out of the way table I think tables around the bar are too crammed.

Lovely and welcoming, beautiful decor and very attentive staff. My only criticism would be that we were sat very close to the main door so was rather chilly with it opening and closing. We will definitely return but would request a table away from the door. Overall lovely experience.

Really lively place, looks great from the outside. Even nicer inside, 'brasserie bright'. Great service and varied menu, also cocktails and gins. High ceilings, not too loud

The food was amazing, and a nice touch of giving my Mum a birthday cupcake, however that’s as good as it got, we were squashed onto a table far too small for 3 people and it was super uncomfortable. The tables are far to close together. The waiters were not attentive at all, we asked for the bill then waited for around 15 minutes and still no one had come to take payment, we had to ask. Not what you expect, we won’t be returning.

You get what you pay for. We paid a premium price and got a premium product. On one of the busiest nights of the year, February 14th, the food and the service were exemplary. A lovely night.

After booking through open table, when we arrived the Ivy said they had no record of the booking. Luckily they gave us a table. Half way through the meal I received an email from open table telling me that the Ivy restaurant had contacted them to say I hadn’t turned up!
From the moment we entered reception we had to shout just to be heard as the noise level was ridiculous. I can not fault the service from the waitress who was excellent. Again we had to shout our food orders just to be heard.
The food was amazing, all three courses were cooked to perfection. At no point were we made to feel rushed.

I have been to The Ivy over a dozen times and it never fails to deliver. All the, without exception, staff are so professional and always deliver great service. Today was rather frantic, especially front of house, with much queuing and waiting for return of coats etc. The lovely staff were being run ragged and overall it felt as if more help was needed up front. Just my observation but appreciate it was a Saturday lunchtime.

Lovely food, fantastic service; however one slight niggle in that the music/DJ in the brasserie on the ground floor was far too loud.

The whole experience was fantastic. The food, atmosphere and service were exceptional. Attentive staff who looked after you when you needed them and left you alone when you didn’t. One of our party said it was the best prawn cocktail they had ever had! The desserts were to die for!
