    Another good meal to the Ivy standard. Two sirloins at our table, one slightly under the requested medium rare and the other slightly over the requested medium.

    Beautifully cooked and prepared food, served in an even more beautiful setting by attentive staff. A very nice added touch of a birthday cake brought out with the coffees. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and intend to take my mum in the near future for her to try it.

    Lovely meal, fantastic staff, disappointed that there was no garnish with my steak, it looked poor, although it tasted delicious, didn’t mind paying for veg etc but a slice of tomato and a mushroom would have improved the presentation, my steak was a wee bit lonely looking. Dessert was delicious, all in all a lovely meal.

    Great experience eating at The Ivy, I would highly recommend it. The service was excellent and the food was well presented. There was a good range of age groups. The only thing I found fault with was the music. The DJ played music that wasn't particularly suitable for the age range or dining experience (too much base and it droned on and on). This type of music made it difficult to hear what was being said.

    Table not ready when we arrived and very bluntly told stand to the side , when shown to our table asked if we would like water my husband said no I asked for sparkling a large bottle arrived as it was just for one person I assumed a small Bottle would be given no options , ordered a glass of veuve champagne I repeated it twice as he mentioned a wine it came and when tasted was not what I ordered I then had to get someone who told me it was the ivy champagne which is not what I ordered , when I asked for a second drink he went to walk away from the table without checking if my husband required another he had to call him back , there was no customer service at all he barely spoke , at the end of the meal he placed a profiterole with a candle in it down I. Front of me saying nothing (I was celebrating my 50th birthday) service was so bad , prefer the Edinburgh Ivy there customers are well looked after

    Visited here for the first time for lunch with my partner. The decor and atmosphere are lovely, this is a nice place to be. The place is swarming with staff who are very attentive and the service is good. Unfortunatly the food wasn't up to this standard. The meal was nice but I've had just as nice food in several other, cheaper venues. I am gluten free and was really disappointed there was only one GF option for a starter. I asked if something else on the starter menu could be adapted, which they managed to do. Overall the food was nice but not up to the standard you'd expect for the price. The Ivy raises all your expectations with nice touches, ambiance and decor, but doesn't deliver the same level food wise.

    Lovely place with great staff, but food was mediocre and uninspiring, far too expensive for what was served. Wines were shockingly expensive too. Very few under £40/bottle. We paid £55 for a wine available for £13 retail.

    We had been meaning to go for months so went to celebrate a birthday (two weeks late). Biggest comment was how small the table was. It was barely enough for one person. I would expect a table twice that size. It took a bit of time to get served, but it was busy (Friday 7pm) so we were content to wait. Order finally taken at 7.30pm although we already had a bottle of wine. The soufflé starter was the only poor dish. Soufflées have to be cooked on the spot for you, so if the kitchen can't do this, don't serve up one which was made earlier and then heated up. Raymond Blanc Brasserie can do it! Peppered squid good. The steak was perfect and the chicken was excellent and the portions of veg and sauces were generous. But overall 6 or 7 out of 10.

    Quality of food excellent, cheese soufflé just wonderful. Not always clear why some dishes came with accompaniments and others didn't, eg chicken at just about £18 with nothing else seemed odd. Overall though, food very very good and staff attentive without being too much. Lively birthday touch from the staff :-)

    A warm and welcoming atmosphere in a very attractive setting. Staff were friendly and professional. The menu is varied and interesting and the food was very good. A very enjoyable visit on a dismal Friday night. The only real downside was the noise level, which my husband found difficult due to his hearing problem.
