    Food selection very disappointing. I E no onions on menu pathetic. Wine list lacking detail. Wine availability disappointing. No Chenin Blanc! Staff continually put wrong dishes down to diners. Wine service for red wine poor, I E non-existent. Worst experience of any Ivy restaurant in the U K that we have been to, either as a guest or the patron.

    This was our second visit to The Ivy, Glasgow to celebrate my wife’s birthday, the moment we entered the Restraunt we were greeted with a friendly smile, once checked in and shown to our prepared table we were introduced to our server, he was polite, courteous and when asked he made a couple of recommendations without being pushy, although very busy our dining experience was a relaxed one and our server was not intrusive while we ate, the food was delicious and well presented and the ambience was perfect as was the surrounding decor, as for the service, I would rate it 5 star, just what you would expect from an establishment like The Ivy, finally, I’m registered blind and our server made every effort to ensure I was comfortable without being overbearing, overall my wife & I enjoyed our Ivy experience

    First of all service and the server was excellent…very attentive. Price of food was rather high for the quantity …basic dish then everything else was extra which I thought was excessive in cost. Food served was very good in presentation and quality, but again sparse in quantity. Wine selection was extensive but again very expensive as were other drinks…the cheapest bottle of wine was £27 . One cost that was not clear, if on the menu was a service charge of approximately 12% . This was not indicated to me prior to paying the bill, and I did not notice it before also leaving a tip….so possibly my own fault. But a service charge for two people….is a bit much. Overall it was a nice visit, but a little disappointing due to pricing and quantity of food.

    Beware of the gift vouchers if you use the voucher as printed I:E Champagne dinner for 2 ours was for £150 for us to get the champagne you have a limited menu if you just use the voucher for the money value you can order what you want from the menu but you don't get the champagne. Whilst waiting on my dinner If I ordered from the limited menu and ordered the most expensive items on the menu starter, main plus 2 sides then desert this would come to £40 per head so for two if it's £80 where do you use the other £70 to make the voucher up to the £150 surely the 2 glasses of champagne is not £35 each. Be careful with the vouchers if you add everything up they're a bit of a con. However I would visit again but definitely without vouchers

    Booking said we had 1 hour 45 minutes for 2 people eating but after an hour we started to be told we had 15 minutes left at max. No time to relax or enjoy a coffee or dessert. The waiter was too attentive, we spent more time acknowledging him than sitting enjoying our food or drink.

    The food and drink were very nice. But I certainly was not pleased at being told we’d need to vacate the table before we were offered dessert! It was as if we were being ejected for something we’d done wrong. Extremely uncomfortable experience. We came in exactly on time at 12.30 and weren’t given the opportunity to order dessert til 2.10. Then told we’d have to have it at the bar because they wanted the table back. Not our fault that the first course took ages. Was very upset at it was a 50th birthday treat for my friend!!

    First experience of the Ivy and we were certainly not disappointed. Ryan (if my memory serves) was entertaining as well as giving us fantastic service. Loved the vibe, music and decor upstairs! This was us finally using our Festive Christmas voucher and we have decided this will be our annual treat to ourselves.
