The Ivy Cafe Blackheath
Very pleasant. Sommelier handled the exchange of an off bottle very well.
The atmosphere was great , service was good. The starters were really good the main courses were mediocre. My husband had a very ordinary burger and my salmon was fine but rather dull.
Host was welcoming and the waiters were very interactive. Lovely experience
The service was excellent and the food was excellent. Nice restaurant and atmosphere.
Excellent food and service. Ambience is amazing as was the breakfast! Will be back for an evening meal soon.
The meal and ambience was fantastic and we will definitely be returning! Service was impeccable!
The evening was perfect, food was fantastic and the service was excellent. We felt very comfortable as when you walk in your temperature was taken and the tables were spaced out perfectly. I love the ivy.
Excellent as always!
I love this place. Some staff even remember me. It’s nice but not pretentious
We went for my sister's birthday and the food service and everything was so good. The only thing is when you book via open table it doesn't alert you that you only get an hour and a half to sit and eat. I assumed it was 2 hours so would have been better to know in advance. We moved to the bar area for the last half an hour so it was fine.
Excellent friendly service as usual.
Food is outstanding. Spotlessly clean
Brilliant service and it felt like they were taking Covid seriously with temperature checks and all of the servers wearing masks. Really enjoyed my breakfast and coffee. Great ambience!
Tasty food and lovely atmosphere - you dont feel rushed out either
I love The Ivy for its food and atmosphere. The service was ok although abit arrogant.
The Ivy cafe in Blackheath always has had very attentive staff. My wife loved the fact that they had noted the occasion submitted in my booking (it was a birthday) and brought out a small birthday cake. Lovely touch !!
Fantastic service and experience,food was amazing
Food was lovely the service was prompt and the staff were very friendly and welcoming
Lovely dinner with a friend, great service, temperature check on arrival and sanitisers available. We tried the set menu and food was great, just a heads up re cauliflower soup, that it has very strong taste of blue cheese ( subject to personal taste, I’m sure many customers love it, just be aware :) ) salmon and sticky toffee pudding were delicious!
As always beautiful interior and great service with a lovely presentation of meals, thank you!
Great 50th birthday meal for my partner.. all 6 of us (limited by Covid rules) had a lovely evening.
The mini birthday cake presented to my partner was a lovely surprise!
Had a fantastic lunch which was long overdue due to Covid. Thank you!
Really spoilt by service... which may also be part of management policy of filling the restaurant despite reduced staff. We’re fairly regular visitors usually, but this is the first time it’s felt like the service was too much trouble. The most frustrating part was 1h15mins after our booking, with every dish arriving with ‘l’m sorry for the delay’ dessert menus were plonked in front of us (although we were already reading them from the QR code’s on our phones) and we were told we couldn’t have one of the desserts because we had to vacate the table in 20mins. No apology, least of all recognition of the delays in service up to this point. Note- this was a week day lunch. There was further delay in taking the order, considerable delay in receiving the order and a very long time trying to catch someone’s eye to ask for the bill. This went on for at least 45mjns during which I’m pretty sure the 14min cook time for the tart fine could have been achieved. Left a real sour note on what should have been a nice trip.
Very good: well organised, excellent service. Really good soup and spectacular prawn cocktail... excellent wine. Lemon sole was succulent but a bit small; steak was good but not superb; vegetables were very good. A bit over-priced but we were celebrating... overall a lovely evening
We had a lovely evening, with great food and outstanding service! Great to be back.
We visited The Ivy yesterday and the staff couldn't have been more helpful - they were excellent and handled our accessibility issue easily and with grace. The food was great and so were the cocktails! Thank you
Service is impeccable, we been twice, two different waiters both high standard
Great experience, lovely birthday lunch. The ambiance was warm and relaxing, the food delicious and the service was of high standard. Thank you !
Consistently great food and good service and feels quite Covid safe with the temperature scanners on entry.
Limited vegan menu but a really nice place to eat,
Lovely lunch, the place has a nice, relaxed vibe. God food, good wine list, attentive and friendly service. Nothing but positives.
once again lunch at the Ivy Cafe in Blackheath was a treat fulfilled. My daughter and I had not eaten "out" since March so it was a double treat. Thanks for making life a little brighter in these dull days.
Delicious food great service. Special anniversary treat was a lovely surprise
We booked a last minute dinner on a Sunday evening.
The welcome was excellent, track and trace, temperature checks and hand gel on arrival.
The service was brilliant for speed and also for requests. Food was fantastic as expected and ambience was nice. It was very busy on a Sunday evening as I expected.
Delicious food albeit a little on the expensive side. Staff were helpful service was outstanding. Really enjoyed our evening.
Inviting and welcoming - this lovely Cafe/Restaurant is perfect for any and all occasions the ambience is superb and the food first class - the service is exceptional and I would highly recommend this happy Cafe to all and everyone
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Highly recommend!
1st time at the Ivy, went for a treat.
Apart from the verbal exchange of words between 2 customer, which the staff handled very efficiently. the venue and ambiance had a good vibe.
BUT our table was booked for 3pm, at 3.45pm a member of staff came over to us and asked if we could hurry and and pay, to which he handed has our bill, and leave as there was people waiting for our table. Which made us both feel very uncomfortable, so we hurriedly paid and finished our dessert and left.
Although I do understand you are having limit your numbers, I would have though we would have had longer than 45mins to order and eat a 3 course meal! so was disappointed with the service we received
Excellent food and good service. Lovely venue with a good vibe.
Excellent service, very edible food and super table and I loved the little birthday surprise for my daughter in the form of a lovely little cake and candle!
Service was a bit slow for a Sunday, but the food was tasty and slightly overpriced
Great breakfast, lovely location, supurb vibe without being noisy.
