    Very unorganised and not particularly helpful staff. Arrived on time for our drinks only booking but told our table wouldn’t be ready for another 20 mins. When we finally did get our table it was set for dinner. When I said that I had only booked for drinks I was told this might not be okay because tables are reserved for people eating?! We were able to stay on the table in the end but spent the entire evening feeling like we had done something wrong and we’re just an annoyance. No apologies for either our wait or the table confusion. Really disappointing.

    We had a wonderful pre theatre evening meal. Slightly spoiled by email received later from Open Table stating we had not attended as planned and no shows affects the hospitality industry. Not only did we attend on time we also included the service charge.

    We very much enjoyed our food and the ambiance of the restaurant. Our table server, Melissa, was wonderful; she was friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was good, but we felt the drinks were overpriced: a bottle of Italian beer was £6.50.

They made us feel welcome and special. The food was fantastic and presentation was impeccable. Everything was perfect. It made a special time for us even more special thank you

    What a fabulous day . We ate from the ala carte menu and everything was delicious. Well priced and value for money. Staff were wonderful and gosh couldn’t believe the number of different servers. Looks like all the staff have a specific role and that’s why the service is probably the best in any restaurant I’ve frequented. As I say , the whole dining experience was simply wonderful.

    Not bad but also nothing special, the set menu is a good price, the rest not worth that much, they do 12.5% service charge which I think is too much

    Hi there, overall quite disappointed with the whole night to be honest. The starters were still not served after 55 mins and thankfully they were removed from the bill, we were also offered a small happy birthday desert to celebrate my daughter’s birthday 18th which never arrived? Maybe I was expecting too much?

    Came down from the Isle of Skye and visited for the first time. Very impressed and will definitely be back. I was particularly impressed with the prices. Unfortunately many Skye hospitality venues are [I suspect!] taking advantage of things and prices are getting unreasonable. It’s a shame that many of the better establishments are now only doing “ Tasting Menus” so no choice -set prices [expensive ] The food is very good but is this choice by the establishment for the customers’ benefit or to make things easier for the chefs/patrons?

    The overall impression of the restaurant was really pleasing. Our grandchildren had bought us vouchers to celebrate our anniversary. The menu choice was excellent both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My blackened cod was scrumptious and my husband’s choice of steak and how it was cooked for him was just spot on. We will go back.

    We took my son to The Ivy for lunch to celebrate his graduation. The food, ambience and service were all excellent, not to mention the delicious cocktails! The Ivy staff went over and beyond to make our visit memorable, bringing a surprise desert with congratulations on graduation sentiments piped onto an accompanying piece of chocolate. The entire experience was simply gorgeous!

    Very difficult to fault this restaurant. Shepherds Pie (Signature dish), a bit on the salty side, so may be not to everyones liking. Really good monkfish and prawn curry ! May be a sign of age , but found it not so easy to read the menu in the dim light. Customer service was impeccable! Waiting staff surprised my son with a Graduation pudding. I don't how they knew, may be made an educated guess! A really nice touch that is much appreciated. I hope we can return again some day.

    The noise in restaurant was disturbing. Staff dropping bottles and glasses in to crates making dreadful noise behind us. Menu choice limited and specials unavailable at 6 15 Desert choice very limited and only ice cream for a person with nut allergies even although they knew for about 2 months she was coming. Altogether a bit disappointing

    We had a great time at the Ivy - a great venue for a celebration/occasion. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was lovely but not overly priced. They also had great vegetarian and vegan options, which made you feel you weren’t missing out. The drinks list was extensive and the cocktails were outstanding. The drinks were a little expensive but you get what you’re paying for! The general ambience of the Ivy was great and the decor was beautiful. Would highly recommend if you are thinking of going!

    The service and food were the outstanding elements of a lovely family dinner at The Ivy. With two vegetarians in our number there was plenty of choice on the menu for all. The background music ws, to our taste, just a little too high but this is a minor gripe in what was a fantastic experience.

    Lovely food, loads of choice, great vegan and veggie options. Service is wonderful; staff very helpful and friendly. The celeb and her entourage seated next to us was a very loud and spirited party, so the Maitre D’ asked us if we’d like to move to another table she’d prepared for us, which was so considerate. We declined as we didn’t want Mary Doll to think we were gits 😊 Expensive compared to many of Glasgow’s restaurants, but An Experience. Special Commendation to the ladies’ loos: beautifully appointed.
