The Ivy Cambridge Brasserie
Very welcoming and friendly restaurant with great service and delicious food.
The most excellent food, service and decor. Everything was pretty much perfect. I brought my very close friend for her 50th birthday lunch and my favourite restaurant did not disappoint. The only thing if I had to be picky was the chocolate melting pudding didn’t melt even after an extra caramel sauce but other than that it was first class as always. My friend was suitably impressed. Thank you and we will be back very soon.
Super service - extensive choices- food bursting with flavour
My husband birthday on that day,we were looked after well. Enjoyed the food and ambience.
Delicious breakfast - full and veggie. Have visited for dinner too.
Food are great and nice deco. However the customer service can not compare with the The Ivy West Street London.
Had a lovely meal. Service good. Not faultless but good. Food was fantastic.
Very friendly staff with excellent service. Delicious food and drinks. Provided complimentary matching anniversary cakes for my parents, which was an unexpected and lovely touch.
The food was absolutely brilliant. As was the service.
It was stated the dress code was smart casual, which we were pleased with as it's nice treat it aa special occasion. Unfortunately this was not enforced as there were customers in Jean's and hoodies and a couple on trackie bottoms. This lowers the ambience
We went to have evening tea for my dads birthday today. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The service was excellent. The birthday cake we requested was delicious.
Fantastic place in every way, will definitely be returning
A perfect place to meet friends and have a long lazy delicious lunch
The mashed potato inside the fishcakes were a little bit too loose, it would have held together better if they were not so runny. More fish would have been a bonus, this was a little scarce.
Everything else was perfect
So glad we were seated near the entrance as the noise level wouldn't have been coped with at the far end of the restaurant.
Thank you for this
A vrey enjoyable lunch - attentive, but not overbearing, service and excellent food and drink in a vey pleasant environment. I would definiteyl come again.
Excellent food and service as always, plenty of veggie and vegan options
We were really disappointed with the food. The meal was in celebration of our daughter’s 18th birthday. Two of the four main courses were cold - they had clearly been plated and left to stand for some time.
Your booking system does not work, despite the copious emails you sent ME; the restaurant did not have the reservation, even though I had confirmed. So I won't be using OpenTable again.
The restaurant was overstaffed with front of house, waiters etc who fussed and faffed; did not know whether a starter course could be served as a main; did not know about coeliac requirements (tried to point us to vegetarian options!)
Altogether, for such a fancy brand, a big disappointment.
Warm and welcoming with a really sparkly Bar. Creative cocktails provided the entertainment - a Most Enjoyable evening
Excellent food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We would definitely return if we are in the area. Steaks were superb!
Delicious food and good service. Unfortunately our neighbours were a little intrusive and the tea was a disappointing end. A birthday treat for my husband provided at the end of our meal was a nice touch!
First time at the ivy.Went for my Daughter’s birthday with my two grandchildren.Service was first class and so was the food.Have already booked to go back with our friends on the 29th.
Many thanks to all the staff.
Very Disappointed with our mains (Lamb Med) All three of our meals were cold, Side were piping hot ,but lovley, Served 5 mins after mains , we had to ask for Gravy again another 5mins by which time dinner 1/2 way through , Desert was lovely Thanks, Price did not reflect Quality,
As this was a special occasion of meeting my Brother for the first time i thought i was booking something special
Ref to 19th Feb @ 6.30 booking
Great pre-theatre dinner. Lovely restaurant, great staff. Delicious food.
We ordered food from the set menu. There was 3 choices for starter, main and desert. The food was well cooked and delicious. The only negatives was the portions were small. I would definitely go back but order from the a la carte menu next time.
We received a very warm welcome on arrival. The set menu is very reasonably priced so anyone can afford to dine here. We had steak, egg and chips finished off with sticky toffee pudding, very tasteful. Waiter service very good
We had a lovely time! Thank you very much for making my Dad’s birthday so special, it really made his day. All the waiting staff were kind, thoughtful, and helpful. We would love to return!
Very good service. Varied menu, the food was excellent. Nice wine. A most pleasant evening
Great decor , Great Vibe , Great Food , Great Service
It was an very good evening: the staff were well informed and courteous, and the food was excellent. We will most certainly return
It was ok. We where a big table, so I would like to go back with a smaller group to see if there is a difference. The atmosphere/ decor is cool giving an upper class feel and staff where polite and friendly. However service was very slow. It took a good hour before our order arrived and some dishes came lukewarm and dry giving the impression that they had been sitting under a warming light waiting for the rest of the food to be ready. Overall I would recommend with caveats
Fantastic service, beautiful decor and food is spot on
Restaurant was out of its specials, premium steak and main offerings. It started off service by giving us a long list of what was not available. Not a great start and then because we commented their staff was excessive in questioning us throughout the meal. We could barely swallow without being asked by 4 different servers if it was okay to the point of ridiculousness. It was a relief to leave. Such a shame because my first experience there was so good and I took family to share something similar. Maybe daytime is better than evening.
Lovely meal shared with friends. Could not fault a thing thank you
Very nice brasserie in the heart of Cambridge. This is a place where you can feel very special and informal at the same time. Restaurant is very nicely decorated with graphics and posters in the 80s style. The service is extremely nice and not intrusive. The selection and quality of cocktails and other drinks is impressive and everyone will find something to their taste on the menu, including vegetarian options, variety of see food and meat-based dishes. Highly recommend this place for any occasion from a friends get-together, romantic date or family celebration to a business meeting.
Always amazing service and food. My only disappointment was that the sauce with the salmon fillet had changed, and none of the staff knew what it had been before! It was a pea puree and it was delicious. I'm not a fan of the room temp cream sauce that's served with it now.
Good place to relax !! For sure i will come back !!! Keep doing what you do!!
Overpriced less than average food , couldn’t even make an authentic aperol spritz ... really spoilt our 48 th Anniversary
There's something not quite right in some of the Ivy branches when it comes to the slick, attentive service you'd expect. Too many staff in red dresses and smart jackets just not picking up on whether the drinks arrive in a timely way (preferably before the food arrives) etc etc. Rather than getting the comforting feeling that someone is on top of the service, the opposite is true in that there is too much avoiding the eye of the customer. And really, when you ask for the bill it should arrive without any further ado. It's not good to observe the waiting staff and others milling about then having to ask again for the bill again. I've experienced exactly the same in the Kings Cross location. The food is good and the atmosphere relaxing so just a bit more focus on the customers at the tables and less on the processes please.
The food and service were excellent. The ambience lovely and the little fresh cream and raspberry bun with a candle to mark my birthday was a lovely subtle discreet and thoughtful touch.
Would definitely go again.Everything about it I enjoyed ,great atmosphere
