The Ivy Cambridge Brasserie
Fabulous as ever but very disappointed that the bill was significantly wrong when we got it. Rectified, but would expect better.
I am a regular to the Ivy and I was impressed by the temperature checks when you first go in but tables don't feel very distanced and my table was in the the walkway of guests coming in so my table felt very exposed, which is very different to how the Ivy in Chelsea have set up.
Had a very cramped table for a party of 3, then there were parties of 2 sat on a table that could fit 6 guests on.
I had the special shrimp and avocado burger which was average.
Waitress was good and friendly.
Won't be rushing back at the moment.
Been there a few time’s always friendly staff and checked temperature on arrival, food was very good and didn’t have to wait for my food , didn’t rush me and staff was helpful with the menu has I’m gluten free , drink selection was very good good clientele of people there and very handy has I I’ve in Cambridge so I can walk there
Very impressed there are not many places in Cambridge we would recommend but the ivy is the top of the list. Staff and atmosphere brilliant
Absolutely amazing! I wish I could turn back to the weekend and do it all again.
The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Great service and even greater food.
Thank you for making our anniversary special for us.
A little disappointed in the quality of food - not exactly memorable. Steak also came out medium when I asked for a Medium rare - something that shouldn't happen surely? Excellent staff though, cannot fault them at all.
Very good meal, great value for money, would have paid double.
Covid restrictions actually made our time at the Ivy even better with more space but still plenty of atmosphere. Great food service and drinks as always.
Very nice lunch, excellent service and great food. Very happy
Really lovely atmosphere. Food was very good. Felt very clean and Covid safe. Staff lovely as always and made us feel very welcome.
Waitress was very helpful and friendly, excellent service, warm welcome and nice atmosphere. Pleasantly surprised for my first visit to The Ivy at Cambridge. The food was delicious, good recommendations from the waitress and was surprised at good size portions. Overall all 4 of us were very pleased with both the food and service, would certainly return.
Lovely ambience to celebrate my mums 60th birthday, was fully booked therefore had to opt for a early booking with brunch. I had rang ahead to let them know my mums birthday was on the day and we’d like to mark the occasion. They bought out a scone with a candle and perhaps I was expecting too much but had hoped a little more. Overall a pleasant experience but felt they could have gone a little extra seen as we had travelled to the area.
Very good evening , thoroughly enjoyable evening , wonderful food
Excellent experience overall, we will definitely be returning again.
Lovely evening catching up with friends. Great waiter, recommend the duck salad and shepherds pie!!
First visit to the Ivy, a great experience with lovely food and attentive staff, you do pay for it though
Thanks to your wonderful team. Everything was amazing and we were well looked after.
This was our second visit to The Ivy Brasserie and again we were so impressed with everything. The food was perfect and I was spoilt for choice. The wine list provides excellent choice as well. For such high quality food, service and ambience it really is good value - we look forward to our next visit.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. The Ivy had a peaceful ambience, with excellent food and attentive but not intrusive staff. We felt comfortable that all of the Covid requirements were met or exceeded.
Lovely experience staff food the whole experience
Very helpful, friendly staff that were happy to take time to talk to you and advise you on the menu.
Beautiful restaurant, abiding by covid rules. We felt very comfortable ans at easy everything was easy to undersatnd and very clean.
It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
Nice buzz on arrival at 8pm but totally dead shortly afterwards. Service was sporadic and we were not even asked how our meal was. Very little conversation initiated by staff. Main course arrived immediately as the starter was cleared. Long before closing, a number of staff previously not available to serve cleared and spray-cleaned all the tables around us. Candles were blown out and not relit even after an apology from waiting staff in response to our request for an explanation (new and inexperienced staff prioritising the wrong things was offered as explanation). Cocktails arrived only after reminding staff. Felt like we were being ushered out of a closing restaurant. Overall the dining experience was rushed and not what is to be expected from a restaurant vs. fast food establishment. Won’t be returning for some time now to what was previously a much-loved favourite restaurant. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection, but the underwhelming dining experience is sadly the lasting impression. Such a shame to see another CAMBRIDGE restaurant over-rely on its reputation and slide downhill through lack of effort and attention to detail.
The menu offers a wide variety of delicious and mouth-watering starters followed by a great variety of main courses. The shepherds Pie is a delight. The Chocolate Bomb dessert is a wonderful indulgence.
Excellent food, service and restaurant decor we had the lunch menu for my birthday even had a small cake with a candle presented to me it was so nice to be out eating normal and to forget that there was a pandemic going on outside
Delicious Food and Experience in a top class setting. The food arrived in relative quick time and was cooked to perfection. The waiter was very attentive and impressive, and everything lived up to expectation. Expensive meal for two but you get what you pay for. Would definitely recommend if in price range £££.
Great food, great cocktails, fabulous service. Ivy doesn't disappoint.
As always , the service was second to none . The food was fantastic and the restaurant very comfortable
Lovely helpful waitress, food excellent as always.
We just should have checked your terms for the Help out to Eat out scheme so we weren’t so shocked at the end. Our fault and very good all round. We always love the Ivy
Good value for special occasions. The ambience is relaxed and menu has great well executed. Friendly and attentive hosts. Second time that they have given us an evening to remember.
A fabulous choice for date night.
Starters and mains were perfect - inventive, tasty and good sized portions, the ambience was so chilled and it was great that there were not reminders of COVID everywhere you looked.
Gov 50% incentive didn’t really make a dent in the bill, but we chalked it up as ‘2 free cocktails’ . . . Winner!
All in all a lovely evening - thank you to the staff.
We felt very safe with The high level of precautions concerning the virus. The food was as good if not better than previous visits.
Lovely dinner and lovely place. First time my fussy son ate all his food— mains and dessert. Thank you.
This was a special meal out for my son’s birthday. The four was excellent as was the service - could not fault at all
a wonderful experience, the service is impeccable and the staff easy going whilst also being professional, the food is very good value, all in all a great experience, we'll be back.
We had the set menu which was great value for money and we both enjoyed our meals.
Truly wonderful way to spend an afternoon, wonderful lunch and great service. Our new favorite restaurant.
The perfect lunch - gorgeous food, attentive waiters, music level just right, temperature of room just right - i could not fault anything about my experience, thank you so much xx
Nice menu and great staff. Good Vovid protocols in place.
maitre de was fabulous, bending over backwards for us.
food was superb as we’re the cocktails.
Our waitress however could not tell us what anything would taste like since she due to allergies and diet preference most items on the menu were unavailable for her to taste. It’s probably just me but I would want my server to have first hand knowledge of the foods. To be fair we didn’t press and ask for another member of staff to come and explain - who can be bothered with that.
The fixed price menu was a great bargain and hats off to Ivy for putting it together.
As ever, will go again and again ....
A very good, varied menu. Everything was beautifully cooked and the service was just right.
