The staff was lovely, food was ok. Was a bit disappointed with no special little gesture as I had mentioned it was my husband’s birthday, and not even a little candle or anything. The area they sat us in was extremely busy and loud. Food was ok and again the staff was lovely but won’t be coming back in a hurry.

I was running late and was worried I would not get to have my anniversary meal with my husband. I rang about 4 times in an attempt to keep changing the time of my reservation. The Ivy were able to accommodate my request and I got there to enjoy a scrumptious meal with my husband. This my third time at the Ivy in Chelsea and the meal was excellent as always. Love the fact that you have someone allocated to attend to your table. Had booked last year but sadly had to cancel due to COVID.

Nice to be able to go back for brunch, really appreciated Ivy flexibility on the menu to accommodate food intolerances. I do wish though that every time I go to the Kings Road branch that I’m not always put in the garden annexe - do start to feel a bit like a second class citizen when nobody else is sat there, and I booked 4 weeks prior.

Although the food was outstanding, we felt the mark on the wine was too excessive
For one bottle of Ultimate Provence £59.00 usual price around £18
We would have stayed longer if it weren’t for this fact

I went to the ivy by myself yesterday.
I wasn’t sure if i was going to be judged by going by myself as this was my first time not being with anybody at a restaurant but the workers were amazing and so kind.
The food was 10/10!
Amazing staff , amazing quality!!!

After sitting at table, it took 30 minutes to get an initial drink.
One lady on reception took our wine order, which then had to be repeated to 3 additional wine waiters before it came.
The asparagus was tough and stringy
The dover sole was obviously not fresh and cooked from being frozen therefore lacking in any real taste.
The spinach was ineddible.
The Shepeard's Pie was good.

As ever a vibrant, trendy and elegant brasserie.

Beautifully appointed, great seating, particularly in the glasshouse, conservatory or garden.

Food is always excellent and well presented.

Service is polished and faultless.

A little pricey, particularly if you wish to have a glass or two, but it's worth it.

We were hoping for an outside table but none were available; they moved us to a nicer table and the staff were friendly and efficient.

Good starters but fish was dry while curry was first class.
Noise due to Covid was not as bad as usual.

Fantastic on all levels the good was excellent and the service was first rate. Our waitress knew the dishes really well and our daughter has a severe nut allergy which was dealt with very very well. We had full confidence that the food she was served was nut free. Great evening.

Unfortunately the food was very bland & cold & wasn’t worth the money at all & considering it was the Ivy it was disappointing. Some of the waiters were lovely but some were very rude & treated us differently to the other customers & I can only assume it’s because we were a group of 6 and younger than everyone else. Apart from that, the place itself is very beautiful.

Got a table in the garden by the fountain, it was fabulous to be back and to be outside. Very good service and food delicious but unfortunately both courses were not very hot so I’ve marked it down. Will be back as love it there!
