    The food was amazing. We wanted dessert but we just couldn’t fit in anymore. Service was a bit slow to start with but when we got the waiters attention it was second to non. Loved it as ever and have booked again for my mums birthday on the 17th July

    Lovely experience at the Ivy for my other half birthday. Even with a milk and gluten allergy there were some items I could eat and the QR code used from the menu enabled me to filter the dishes I could eat very easily. Thank you to the team at the Ivy

    Service was phenomenal as usual. Food was fresh, vibrant and a great value for quality. I was particularly impressed by the young waitress (who's name I didn't catch unfortunately) that took exceptional care in accommodating for a toddler that we had with us. Overall a fantastic breakfast and will be back again.

    The Ivy was once a single, restaraunt in the West End of London. its now a chain of Brasseries all over the country. Somehow they manage to maintain the high standards of the original at every one I've visited. The Blackheath Brasserie is in an excellent location and doesnt really have a bad table. (not true for all their venues).

    Worth a visit for sure if you enjoy fine dining and a large cocktail list. The sourdough bread is really nice if you like salt, like I do. We were well looked after but you could tell that they probably were missing a couple of staff that night. Central London prices but that is to be expected in Ivy and you do get a great experience for your money.

    Was very disappointed with they way the ivy dealt with my request,when booking online I request the corner window seat, due to having a walking aid. I telephoned them the same day I booked online, I explained to the lady on the phone I've had a operation which requires me to put my leg straight out, and that the corner window seat would be perfect, she says it's first come first serve on the night, i asked if I can reserve the table, her reply was no reserving of tables.we arrived and the corner seat was empty, the lady took us to our seat which was the next table, which was not suitable at all, I explained we requested the corner seat due to my health issues, she told me it was reserved, can't believe this we were told no reserving of tables? We had to wait over 15 mins for a suitable table to come available not good enough, I had a major operation and having been out in 9 weeks, was a bit upset about the whole thing. We eat here a lot as we love the food and staff, but last night we seen favoritism to other customers, which shouldn't be aloud. I would like to discuss this with management ASAP.

    Food was beautifully prepared but service was poor. We had to repeat our starter choices, and our sides did not arrive with our mains. By the time the final side arrived, the mains were not hot, and no apology was given. We weren’t asked at any point how the meal was, probably because it was obvious that the food had sat for so long before we could start eating.

    Nice atmosphere, starter of asparagus a bit undercooked and cool and main course arrived the minute we had finished our starter which was not ideal but overall lovely setting and friendly service. Rest of the food was lovely.

    Whenever I feel the need for a bit of uplift, The Ivy in Blackheath is the place to go. Bright welcoming smiles, courtesy with coat hanging and escorting to table. I feel like the Queen. Table superbly set with the distinctive ivy designs. Glasses are sparkling napkins nice and crisp and a decent size. My negroni was wonderful. I had the monkfish and prawn curry which was delicious and perfect for the hot summer day. Ice cream made with fresh cream and good ingredients with a home made shortbread finger. Double espresso and ready to go.

    Went yesterday and 3 weeks ago. Wanted the same lunch but was told I couldn’t have caramelised onions in my beef baguette this time ! Also ordered sorbet asked what flavours were available and one he said was salted caramel . I have never heard of that as sorbet but was assured it was. I was served up ice cream

    The portion sizes are very small and hence it is extremely over priced for what is on offer. Whilst the service was good, they forgot the only side we ordered. The quality of food is sub par - linguine pasta with Courgette hardly had any courgette and there was no tomato sauce. For the price being charged it is just not worth it I have been to The Ivy in Central London a few times and is far better than The Ivy in Blackheath.

    The food was delicious and they even bought me a little surprise as it was my birthday. My only complaint is that I had the blackened cod and then a dessert and I was still hungry and I'm a small eater. I think the fish should have come with potatoes for something

    I have been to The Ivy on many occasions. I was deeply disappointed this time. I had to wait 20 minutes + for a drink which I had ordered and then reminded the staff of. The food was cold and management clearly does not treat customers the same. A deflated experience. I hope the next time will be much better.

    I like the Ivy Cafe. Particularly if you want a quiet or more intimate catch up in a calmer atmosphere. The food is nice but what really elevates it for me is the cosy decor, comfortable seating , well laid out floor plan with lots of private nooks, and high quality service. Because of this, I’d chose it over other similar quality food options in the area.
