    Beautiful environment as you’d expect from an Ivy. Plenty of choice on menu especially for vegetarians. Took quite awhile to get our drinks so ended up ordering at the same time. Vegetarian burger was quite disappointing

    The food and ambience was very good as usual. Unfortunately the food was very slow to arrive due to a large party in another room. We didn’t complain but the manager took note on her own and comped our drinks which was a very nice and welcome gesture….not something I see happen too often in this country

    Saturday brunch 9th May. One of our party was late but it wasn’t a problem. Very nice food all around. Aubergine risotto was particularly good. Huge appetiser bread. Mozzarella starter lovely but too much on the plate. Scallops very nice too. House white wine good quality. We both had pan fried bass with mash & samphire. Very good but imo, the fish was a bit ‘over’. Attentive staff. Good coffee & sparkling water. Definitely Recommend

    A lovely lunch with fabulous table service. I was shocked the price of fish and chips has increased from £14.95 to £19.50! It simply means I now will dine less at this establishment in the knowledge that my infrequent visits will be all the more appreciated.

    Good - but not as good as normal - normally love this place and 5/5 without fail - but this time service was slow - very slow with wine. Chicken was over cooked and steak was not as good quality as before and lacked flavour. However duck salad was as always excellent, chocolate bomb was incredible and ambiance superb.

    As someone who had dined many times at the Wimbledon restaurant and always enjoyed it this visit was sadly somewhat disappointing. I have always loved the cosy, chatty atmosphere but this time we were seated upstairs in an empty private dining room. As a result the overall experience was totally different. We felt completely isolated from the rest of the Cafe. Whats more, while the service was efficient, our waitress seemed disinterested and as isolated from the restaurant as we were. Our starters were good and my partners Ivy staple of shepherds pie were excellent. Sadly my Malaysian style monkfish dish lacked flavour and was a little watery. This visit, while by no means enough to discourage a further visit does leave me hopeful it was a one off as opposed to a change to the norm. Here’s hoping!

    Although we attend The Ivy Wimbledon Village often, this occasion we were a little disappointed in the menu. Some items had been removed and some changed. The chicken Milanese has become a strange concoction that doesn’t reflect its origins with a wet salad on top of a crispy coating bad idea. The desert menu was ok but nothing special. The service is very good, the cocktails yummy and the restaurant lovely ambience. Please do not try to hard to modernise dishes that do not need it.

    We were somewhat disappointed in our visit to the Ivy Cafe in Wimbledon Village on 1st May. The place was very busy seemed to be short-staffed. We had to wait nearly 40 minutes for our main courses to arrive and notices that other parties near us who came in after us got there meals before us. My meal was fine but the Malaysian Monkfish, Prawn and Coconut curry that my wife ordered had hardly and pieces of monkfish. This was not the usual experience we usually have at Ivy Cafes that we have visited previously. Hopefully this was just an off day!

    Our meal was absolutely delicious. Service was just OK. I waitress was clearly new, drinks when poured were spilt a couple of times. We ordered more wine and for a different bread for the smoked salmon starter, both took ages to arrive and we had to chase up. That aside, the food was delicious and we were well looked after. Thank you.

    Staff were well trained and very attentive. The pate starter was presented in a novel and exciting manner and it tasted superb. The cheese burger was perfectly cooked and tasty. The Mexican chicken was good and enhanced by the fine green beans. The creme brûlée was creamy and perfectly cooked. The good food was pleasantly served by very attentive, friendly and smartly dressed staff, which led to us having a really pleasant experience. We will be back!

    Usually the food and service are consistently good however on this visit both were a bit average. The starters did not arrive at the same time and the mains did not match expectations raised by the menu descriptions. Not unpleasant but not great.
