    Staff friendly,courteous from entering the cafe. Our waitress was funny,good sense of humour,professional. Food delicious. We both had the blackened cod,beautiful flavours and nicely presented. It was my birthday,and we appreciated the chocolate choux bun! My first time in the Cafe,my friend had been twice before,and recommended. Definitely going again soon! Nice ambience,and smiley staff.

    We visited to celebrate my wife’s birthday and had a thoroughly nice evening. Our Welsh waitress was wonderful. Cheerful, attentive and helpful. Look after her! On the whole the food was excellent, the blackened cod was superb as were the curry and steak. The only minus point, and it was a small one, is that my son’s burger bun was a little burnt.

    Lovely evening with friends. Great food and drinks. In particular the scallop starter was fabulous. Also one of my old favourites the monkfish and prawn curry - wonderful. The men had steaks, perfectly cooked. My friend had the chicken Milanese also fab. No rush to leave so all in all a really good evening.

    Had a great time here for my anniversary! The food was incredible: portion sizes are great, and the flavours are unbelievable! On top of that, the staff and service were top notch. Our host Ozzy, was really relatable and took a real interest in us and made it a professional yet personal experience!

    Always good food and service at The Ivy, along with a good ambiance. There are a lot of The Ivy restaurants around London, and whilst they are all similar in style and decor, the are all different in there own way, which is what I like about them. You don’t get the chain restaurant feeling when you visit them.

    i we attended to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant was not busy and never more than 50% capacity, yet, nearly cold food was served on warm plates. When removed, the side dishes were left on the table and not taken away. The time taken to return the food was ridiculously long and even then found not to be worth the money. An extremely disappointing visit and won't be repeated.

    I visited the Ivy for a friends 40th birthday and The service was really poor, we was stuck in the corner and forgotten about. The waiting staff pushed passed my chair numerous time to get to the table and when it to come to paying after asking for the bill it took 20mins before I had to go a find someone to pay . I will not be revisiting which is a shame as so many people hyped it up as being great

    Fantastic food. Under-staffed but the guys there are working their butts off. The Ivy champagne is the best value around imo. Tastes better than any of the branded ones. Get more staff Ivy Directors....

    The food was simply delicious, I could not make my mind up on what to eat, as every dish looked amazing. I asked for a recommendation and our waitress recommended the blackened cod, I was not disappointed. The dish was an explosion of taste and was perfect portion. Their truffle parmasan fried were really good and so were the green beans with almonds. Very accomodating and excellent service. Cannot wait to go back and try the rest! Already planning to return for my birthday.

    Our table wasn’t ready so asked us to take a table outside, and order a drink, did that, then our table was ready a couple of minutes after- we wouldn’t have ordered a drink (cocktail and beer) if we’d have known, we would have just ordered a bottle of wine. The wine bucket had quite a few corks in, the lid to our sparkling water got thrown in there- so that lost some fizz, lastly there was no ice in it. I was sick during the night and think it was from the lobster linguine. Nice touch was the profiterole with Happy Anniversary on it. I’ve been to a few other Ivy’s and the standard has been higher.

    First time visiting Yummy food, good service! We had a birthday and brought a cake with us but couldn’t eat it on the premises? Odd! If isn’t to do with not having dessert maybe charge people for bring a cake? Very noisy but happy. Good to see restaurants busy
