Onre of my favorite restaurants but for the first time we felt they were a bit stretched. I requested a table near the window for my step daughter's 21st and were initially seated behind the till. We were then kindly moved into what I would term the main restaurant where if you are taking someone for a treat is more lively.
Food excellent as usual, service good although we were told at one stage a wine bucket wasn't possible and had to asked to have old drinks etc taken from the table, but all in all still a great restaurant and we will go back, maybe just a bit stretched that night!

It is always a joy to go to the Ivy and be waited on with some high quality customer service. The ambience is amazing, the décor exquisite and the food delicious. It is also very reasonably priced which means you can dine in style without breaking the bank.

Loved the ambiance. Great American style bar. I would suggest you choose your menu carefully. I had fab fish and chips. However my friend was so disappointed with her dish.
Will certainly eat there again.

I had mentioned in my booking that the event was for the Morher’s Day (in our home country) and coincidentally also for my wife’s birthday. However none of those was notified within our service.

Dined for the first time at this place. The waiting staff kept dropping cutlery which created so much noise and disruption. The food can be easily beaten by pub food and the clientele seemed to look like typical pub goers. Disappointing experience.

We had a splendid evening meal at the Richmond Ivy to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was busy and buzzy and the welcome warm and efficient. Service was excellent and the food perfect. We were very impressed and are looking forward to finding an excuse to go there again.

Very good service, the menu does not change (as I've been on various occasions, both for lunch and dinner) and the ambiance is great. The food is particularly good, though not varied. Glad to have this in Richmond.

Birthday celebration spoiled by birthday guest’s main course incorrect and second guest’s chicken under-cooked.
Apart from that, service was excellent and very attentive.
Would have appreciated greater service recovery.

Really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at the Ivy Café in Richmond! The atmosphere was great, service and food was excellent. My only minor comment would be that I found the tables were very close together so you were sat very close to people at the next tables. Would not stop me visiting again though.

The food was of average quality and we did not have to wait for the food to arrive. Wine, we thought was reasonably priced but the service was poor.
First of all one wine glass needed replacing due to a crack (understandable) but the wine that was in it was not replaced. Later, a waiter routinely replenished some wine from our bottle and it was knocked all over the table cloth (red wine). Once again, the wine was not replaced. The staff were working incredibly hard and it was a busy evening but a smile would have added to our celebrations. Also, the noise level made it very difficult to hear each others conversation.

Our experience in The Ivy Richmond was exceptional in every way, the moment we walked in to the charming receptionist. Its a beautiful restaurant, lovely art work, very comfortable seats, enough space between the tables for privacy, excellent service and sensational food. Fantastic value for money. We can’t wait to return.

Over bearing staff when you want to meet your wife at 6pm on Friday and catch up after a busy week. Staff insisted on poring our prosseco for us , when all you want at that time of the day is to be left alone. The system failed instantly when the girl who was serving us went off somewhere else and we sat there for over ten minutes with empty glasses with a newly opened bottle of wine 10 ft away! Made the point to the new waiter who finally came over and then went from no filling of the glass to one sip and he’s there topping it up. It’s not what you want, having to play politics with the staff over there duties. Ordered a mojito for dessert and it came to me looking like a Fanta lemon with a shot of rum in it and a sprig of mint dunked in the top. Being an Ivy patron over many, many years, if the cocktail maker can’t be asked to make a descent drink? Then the Richmond cafe is a victim of its own success. We won’t be going back.

The occasion was a present for my sister, pre theatre; we were early for the booking but that presented no problem. We had a lovely seat by the window, the service, table layout and food was glorious ( very tasty vegetarian'). We were treated like VIP's. In one word it was 'wonderful'.

Lovely ambiance, good food, the set menu was very good value - the hake was excellent. Unexpectedly good to find a reasonable wine at under £20 a bottle Only quibble is the acoustics which were challenging.
