    Food was fantastic as always Service could be improved by employing subtle differences such as not reaching over the plate to top up the wine glasses. The waiters could easily have taken a few extra steps round the side of the table to as not to have an arm over the food or between myself and other guests while we were in mid conversation. The environment/ambiance/decor are as good as ever. It's also a tad on the pricey side but for good food I don't mind that.

    We are regular diners at Ivy Brasserie restaurants in various locations so thought we would try Cambridge before the theatre. Ambience was good, waiter was very attentive but unfortunately the Shepherds Pie wasn’t to their usual standard and made me feel quite ill, so much so we had to leave the show we were watching but would let that put you off, just maybe order something different at this location.

    We had a champagne afternoon tea which we really enjoyed. The service was good and the table near a window which was also nice. The only down side was a 'birthday party' on a nearby table which was quite noisy. Otherwise a very nice afternoon.

Attentive, without being overbearing, waiting staff. All in all another great visit and ….. what is the lovely perfume in your ladies loo? You could market it!

    Probably the best meal I’ve ever had in my life. The waiter was superb, constantly topping up the wine, asking if we needed anything, he was calm and funny and gave us an amazing experience. I didn’t catch his name but he had a funky mustache and from Spain! Would recommend this restaurant 10/10 especially for special celebrations.

    Sandwiches ok scones were hard. We asked for plain scones but non available. The waiter suggested their preferred tea which turned out to be the worst cup of tea ever. No taste or perfume. And finally we were again offered a table in a corner of the restaurant which was reluctantly changed at my request - this happens every time we.visit this restaurant

    Birthday celebration nice added touch for our friend a candle in a large profiterole. Food was well presented, although some interesting food combinations and a little too much chocolate would have been nice to have some other choices, the milk shake looked sweet but wasn't a nice flavour, and sadly no hot drink refills offered. Felt it was expensive for the food offered, paying for the venue. Was nice to experience though.

    Nice food, maybe slightly underwhelming. I had eggs Benedict and expected slightly higher quality relative to the price. We paid £40 for one tea, one cappuccino, eggs Benedict and full English breakfast. The food arrived before the drinks which wasn’t ideal. Staff were lovely but maybe a bit OTT on the service, they checked in on us three times while we were eating. Three different people. I’d not rush back but it was good enough.

    Love Love The Ivy Cambridge. However on this visit we unfortunately had some issues with our foo. Firstly my mains course was served incorrectly and I had been given an incorrect side and did have to wait sometime, too long for the correct side to arrive. My husbands order arrived and at best it was like warm, it had obviously been standing too long before being brought out to him, he started to eat but said it was unpleasant being cold so we called our server, who had not been to check if all was ok, to tell her my husband’s food was actually cold and his side order just didn’t arrive. The server took his back to the kitchen and advised his order would be cooked from fresh. We had made the server aware we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we were surprised that knowing it was a special occasion that she thought it was ok for me to eat my incorrect meal on my own and then my husband would eat his once cooked. You do not go out to celebrate an anniversary of 37 years to both eat separately. Therefore we called the server back and said we were very disappointed to be in s position were we were going to be eating separately. She asked what we wanted to be done? That was disappointing, a good restaurant would not ask that question. Upon my request to be able to eat with my husband she took my food aware, her superior arrived an immediately apologised and said we should be eating together. So incorrect order was delivered, no apology, my husband’s side order didn’t arrive even though we advised the server and my husband’s food was cold. An hour later than we should have eaten we received freshly cooked food and the correct food, which we did enjoy, however at this stage, the evening had a grey cloud over it and it was not the most successful evening out or the best celebrated wedding anniversary. It was a shame but it did spoil our evening, they did offer a complimentary dessert which my husband accepted however I just wanted to go home.
