Service was extremely slow , took 20-30 mins to get a drink . It was t the waiters fault , but the extreme slowness of the service was such a shame .

The food as ever was great when it arrived

The restaurant is strikingly beautiful and the tables are well spaced. All four of us raved about the food and the service was attentive and helpful. It was meant to be a “special meal,” and Ivy delivered.

The worst restaurant I’ve ever been to. The service and food were appalling. Don’t waste your time or money visiting here. The decor is beautiful but everything else is shockingly awful. I’ve been to many Ivy branches and this one is by far the worst.

The steak was bland and chewy I asked for medium-well and I got a very well done chewy steak which I couldn’t finish (I wasn’t refunded for this despite telling the manager I got the wrong steak). I ordered a cocktail which they forgot about I was waiting 30 mins before I could get the attention of someone who then went to order the cocktail, when it had been made it was then sitting on the bar for an additional 15 minutes to the point I had to get up and ask if that is my drink so they forgot twice (I was dining on a Monday evening wasn’t even that busy). The manager took off the service charge but I found him very rude and insincere. I then tried to order another drink and I was told that I can’t because it was already last orders (I didn’t mind this but I could clearly see the bar staff taking orders and making drinks as I was asking, I pointed this out and the manager was just rude and abrupt and after I saw him sitting down at the table of the people he was giving drinks to so clearly he was friends with them because what staff member sits on a customers table to talk in a restaurant. Anyway the whole experience was awful I would never go back there and the manager needs some training because he is rude.

Lovely service but food underwhelming. Decor too flamboyant for our taste and very noisy. Not Covid safe as packed in tight. Ran out of Chablis except at £67 per bottle, which was lovely wine. Wouldn’t go again.

Disappointing visit! This was not my first visit and previously visited for lunch and dinner and always walked away very very happy with the meal and the service. Ambience us always excellent and we sat in the garden and it was beautiful. Unfortunately they appeared to be short of staff in the garden area and our sever did his best and was attentive and smiley but rushed as he was covering too many tables. Also, we pre-booked for afternoon tea and the table we were given was just too small for two of the afternoon tea serving towers…either we needed a larger table or perhaps one tower with larger plates to share. As we pre- booked, surely a more suitable table should have been offered. The gardens, the flowers all absolutely beautiful but this visit was not up to the Chelsea Ivy standard! Will continue to recommend for lunch and dinner but not for afternoon tea.

The service was amazing. The ambiance was gorgeous - however the food didn’t blow me away. Unfortunately our scones were not cooked well enough and had a doughy centre.

I made a booking for Sunday at 4:15pm and even though my self and my party arrived on time, we were not immediately sat at our table. We eventually ordered our food at 4:50pm and the waitress messed up our drinking order, resulting in one of the people in the party not to receive a drink for at least half an hour after the rest of the table was served. (Bare in mind that she asked for a cortado and a mint tea and neither of those came during that time)

The location is beautiful and the food is amazing (we went for afternoon tea), but the staff couldn’t manage the volume of tables very well

Lovely experience but so terribly noisy. Have both, the designer and architect ever had the pleasure of having a meal in the restaurant after completion??

It is a shame because it is such a lovely place and I am sure many people second my stated opinion.

What did the owner[{s} try to achieve I wonder. Having said this the Ivy Garden is not any better noise wise.

However, lovers of these 2 places will have to put up with it I reckon. The choice is ours after all.
