    Lovely venue, great food. Would recommend the Shepherd's pie. Service was good. We had an extra person join our party and the restaurant staff were happy to make adjustments so they could join our table. Some extremely drunk people in the restaurant which you don't necessarily like to see when having a nice meal out.

    This is our second dining experience at The Ivy. The first time we arrived on time to a long wait. After queuing to get in we were sat at the bar for twenty minutes. Don’t let me book a table if you can’t seat us at the correct time. Based on other reviews you aren’t quiet when someone’s time is up. Yet you can’t seat us on time? Something doesn’t add up. The most recent time to the Ivy wasn’t off to a great start. We arrived a little early as it had been raining outside. We were told we couldn’t be seated at the bar and either to wait beside the door or to leave until it was time. We chose to leave and come back. When we arrived back we noticed several tables suitable for 2 people on our way to our table. So what was the problem in taking us early? It was raining outside. The person at the door had taken one look at us and it appeared she deemed us as not worthy enough to be taken. Have you ever been looked up and down with a look of disgust? If not then visit your front desk, they’ve perfected it. Thats what we were treated to on arrival. My fiancé and I deliberated on whether to actually go back for our table or not after that initial encounter . I felt so uncomfortable and disrespected. Why should we give them our hard earned money when they get to judge us and decide if they want to be nice or not? Paying customers keep staff in a job. What a terrible start to the meal. Your front desk staff and their attitude actually ruin the experience. The waiters up stairs deserve every penny of their tip but I begrudge that being shared with front desk staff.

    Had dinner at the Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Was the first time we’d eaten there and had high hopes. Restaurant itself was nice, food was very underwhelming and overpriced for what we got. I had scallops to start, they were overcooked, lobster linguine didn’t have much flavour. Husband had salt & pepper squid to start, it was ok but a very small portion and didn’t taste spectacular. He also had chips with his main which were swimming in oil and not very appetising and his curry main was ok but nothing we couldn’t have made at home. Disappointing meal really.

    I don’t think I’ll be dining here again. A lot of pressure to vacate the table before the end of the one hour 45 minutes. This is the second consecutive time this has happened. It puts a bad taste in your mouth and no I would not be recommending this to other diners.

    We were looking forward to the Ivy as we had a good experience in the past. Arrived and ordered cocktails which were good. Starters were fine, so far so good. Then came the main course. Mine was fine however my wife ordered the special, a scallop risotto. Risotto itself was passable but the scallop were a joke. They were small, even then they were halved, and overcooked. A miserable looking plate given that the price was £35. This really spoiled the meal for us which was for a special occasion. I doubt if we will be back

    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.
