    A very enjoyable afternoon, food was delicious, staff attentive and engaging. A bit pricey but that was expected. However £4.75 for a bottle of water was surprising.

    The service was friendly and helpful, attentive without being at the table too often. The food was all very tasty and portions were larger than expected for the sharers and just right for the main course and pudding. Cocktails were delicious.

    The food was excellent & first time our guests had been to Ivy & they felt the food was good too. However, we were first put by an open door so it was draughty, so asked to move. Were put on a table of six when there were only four of us, when there were other tables of four and not reserved. We were asked to leave and told we only had 15 minutes to finish our meal which we did not find satisfactory at all and that spoilt the whole experience.

    Had an enjoyable time at The Ivy, we had breakfast and it was a nice start to the day. Our food was lovely and well presented, enjoyed looking at the 'decor' and the ladies room was lovely. Just one little disappointment, I had breakfast tea in a lovely sturdy teapot but alas just one teabag for the whole pot, couldn't get it to strengthen so decided to drink it without milk, just thought that the Ivy would use two for a pot.

    Fantastic food with excellent service. Once your food is served they just leave you alone and there is none of repeated questions of “how is your food ?”, which you have to answer with mouthful of food. Table is cleared periodically without you noticing. The only minor problem was the light was too dimmed to see the menu and the wonderful food clearly. Also noice level too high.

    Staff are very friendly and attentive.Afternoon tea was very good, you can change sandwiches from the menu if need be and offered more at the end, but we couldn’t eat all we had. They made a special effort for our anniversary. The restaurant is nice, it was quietening down while we were there but quite noisy at the beginning. Toilets are well worth a visit, even though they are up two flights of stairs!

    We visited The Ivy for my mothers birthday, having never been before I wasn’t sure what to expect. The service from entering to leaving was outstanding, so attentive. Selection of food was amazing and the portion size was good. At the send of the meal my mother had a small profiterole with a candle for her special day. It is pricy (£90 for the two of us) but it was a fantastic experience. Would go definitely go again.
