    The decor and interior are lovely , food is fine and set menu is a fair price. It seems like as the Ivy has expanded it’s chain the food quality has taken a hit. But a nice lunch out nonetheless

    Had a unplanned visit from relatives over from Australia and needed a Tuesday night venue. Nothing is open around us post COVID, so we decided Cardiff city centre was our only option. We’ve never had a bad meal at The Ivy, so it was a no brainier! And we weren’t disappointed!

    The food was tasty but was disappointing that you needed to order potatoes etc as this doesn’t come with the meal. The service was good but would have preferred a table downstairs. There wasn’t much atmosphere.

    Went for afternoon tea as had two vouchers. Food was nicely presented but I feel there was too much sweet and not enough savour. Also found it very loud so it was hard to talk around the table.. talking of tables we were sat on a tiny round table and had no room at all to put anything.. it resulted in things falling off the table.. and not enough room to eat properly as it was so cramped. Would have preferred a larger table especially as I booked a month in advance and this was a very expensive afternoon tea.

    First time at the Ivy in Cardiff. Food was great. Had the 3 course set menu. Drinks a little expensive though. And nothing on draught at all. Also I drink Southetn Comfort. None of that either but had loads other spirits and liquers. But I opted for a bottle of cider . Aspell i think it was. Was stated as £5.75 in the menu. But was £6.25 on the bill. I pointed this out to the waitress. Told her it was ok but to amend the menu! The staff were great. Attentive and pleasant. I'd definitely go again. One criticism was the lighting inside was a bit dim. (And i was sat by the window).Couldnt see the menu clearly as daylight outside faded. Pretty darkish inside. Was going to get my phone out and use the torch but decided against that. All in all though I enjoyed

    Table service and food quality was superb. Front of House staff at door were questionable - found the individual in green blazer very helpful! Found the individual girl in floral blazer very abrupt and this came across rude. We actually commented that she had no warmth and perhaps didn’t know how to smile. Please work on this. Definitely enjoyed the food though …! Thank you!

    Lovely afternoon tea but a bit disappointed with the sandwiches as they were crusty. They must have been made for a while. So I asked for the service charge to be removed. I felt as the tea was priced at high end and expected it to be perfect. Still a nice day though.

    We went for a champagne afternoon tea as I had been given a voucher as a gift. Our table was too small to comfortably fit everything on and some of the sandwiches the bread was really stale. However the service was really good which is an improvement on the appalling way we were treated last time. There are better value afternoon teas to be had but it we had a nice treat. Only went as it was a gift and would not pay to go otherwise.

    My partner was very disappointed with his main meal . Ordered fish full of bones fingers in mouth more than a fork . Did not state on the menu that it was not deboned for £25 was very over priced all it was! Was the fish. Very disappointed I’m sorry to say did put a little downer on the meal as it was my birthday . Was asked would we like water , as it was an extremely hot day we said yes on the bill we was charged £4.75
