    We have been to the Ivy many times for lunch and really like the restaurant. We decided to go for breakfast this weekend which was a mistake. The food was served lukewarm, the croissant only arrived half way through our meal (an essential part of breakfast for me and 10:45 is a bit late for the breakfast croissant to arrive from the bakery and the black pudding was tough and almost rubbery. On the plus side, our waitress was really good and didn’t charge for our coffees and croissant (once they finally arrived) and the ambience was excellent as usual. Lukewarm food is the ultimate turnoff for me - when will restaurants learn? Will we go back for lunch? Possibly. Will we go back for breakfast? Definitely not.

    Having booked the Ivy Restaurant Glasgow for upstairs 3pm 1st March my friend and I arrived at 3pm to be told our table wasn't ready and taken to the bar to wait. At 3.30pm we were told again our table still wasn't avaliable and offered a table downstairs or wait for upstairs, as we had another appointment later, we reluctantly took the downstairs table. Also my lemon sole main course was inedible, the fish was tasteless and watery, after removing the large bone the fish still had small bones making it impossible to eat and I had to leave it. Not the experience I expected from The Ivy Restaurant.

    My husband and I enjoyed our meal but our friend is gluten intolerant and she ended up with the shepherd pie and crème brûlée there was no decaf tea for her either so I felt a bit disappointed for her as our guest. Also the music in ladies toilet is much more in fitting and relaxing than what was being played in restaurant, this is our third visit and we were give voucher as gift,the staff were nice and attentive.

    Overall it was a lovely evening and the food was amazing. The only comment to make was that there was no warning regarding the amount of bones in the Lemon Sole i.e. be careful when eating. There were a lot of small bones that couldn't be seen at first so the first bite was full of them.

    Great service and food thank you. We ordered steak tartare (as we have before), this time involved the waiter performing table theatre- this interrupted our discussion (that was serious, needed and not light hearted) and was inappropriate. I would much prefer you go back to preparing the food in the kitchen and serving in your usual friendly efficient manner.

    The food was very good but not amazing. The steak was decent. The main reason for 5 stars was the waiter named Angus. His service was incredible. He knew when to chat, laugh, have some banter etc whilst all the time being mannered and totally professional. It’s quite a talent tbh. An absolutely lovely guy.

    Booked a table at The Ivy for my birthday. I had been there a few times and, once again, it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent with the waiter showing just the right amount of attention. He was also very friendly and gave some great recommendations. Add to this the gorgeous decor and you have a fantastic experience.

    Although the restaurant has a specific menu for different types of allergies, the gluten free menus was quite limited and charged an extra £12 service charge for gluten free dishes. There were a number of items that could have been without gluten (as the zucchini fritti with lemon) but the chef couldn’t guarantee cross contamination. I am now wondering what is the extra £12 as service charge for? They didn’t even offer me some Gluten Free bread. This is business as usual in most restaurants now a days.
    The Ivy Buchanan Street GlasgowResponded 4 days ago
    Thank you for your feedback, Chicca. I'm sorry you found our non-gluten dishes limited. We make every attempt to modify our dishes wherever feasible while posing no risk to our guests. Our service charge is not based on the dishes that our guests order, so I apologise if you were misled in any way. I do hope that you will return to us in the future.

    Front of house woman was very curt - not impressed. Most bar persons were very polite and efficient, although we witnessed one chap use his hands to put lemon/ice in drinks instead of using tongs - disgraceful! Plates at dinner were cold, food (shepherds pie) looked like it had been kept under a lamp for too long. Zuccini fritti and fishcake were delicious. Waitresses were lovely. I am not sure I would book this venu again.

    Had to wait for a table but no seats at the bar, not ideal as quite a few people waiting and this caused a bit of a bottle neck. Table service was really good and I did enjoy the food,I did find the price of alcohol really overpriced. I did not like the lay out of the table that I was sitting at, found it strange sitting at a corner of a table. I have visited the Ivy in Edinburgh a few times and to be fair enjoyed my experience there a lot better. The staff in Glasgow were lovely, very polite and chatty making sure that you had a lovely evening
