The food was very good, the usual quality I like from the Ivy Chain. I was disappointed in the service from the restaurant the lady at the front door was rude and also we were originally seated outside before I stated that wasn’t what I had booked. Service not up to the usual standard

We waited a while for our order to be taken. Changed the house wines not so good now. We recommended the new dessert but asked to leave our table before they came coffee was served before the dessert as they were rushing us .

I’m a big foodie so my standards are quite high but I’m usually pretty fair! However, the Staff are not very friendly and the food is very underwhelming costing much more than it’s worth! But the atmosphere is good and it’s very aesthetically pleasing, otherwise nothing spectacular.

The manager of the conservatory area was appalling & should not be working for you. I removed the service charge from the bill which I have not done in decades. Get rid of her.

Very abrupt staff, booked weeks ago and was put on a terrible table. Didn’t inform me the table was only for 1hour and 45mins until the actual moment we showed up. Frosty management. Food average.

The restaurant is beautiful. The atmosphere was lovely. The only downside was the staff mentioned a few times how long we had at our table. Made me feel a bit rushed and pressured. The food was delicious 😋

Popped in for a quick snack to avoid getting stuck in traffic and managed to get an excellent quiet table in the outside conservatory area at 6 pm on the spur of the moment. We had excellent service from a delightful young lady and general attentiveness all around. Extremely impressed by the Covid care undertaken within the entrance area and staircase to WCs The letter was slightly marred by there being no paper towels and I need to pull too heavy doors open without protection

The ivy is a buzzing gem. It’s a successful well-oiled machine. We sat down at 5.30pm, the restaurant was already heaving, with a wonderful atmosphere. But the five of us felt we were being hastened through our meal by the waiter and the overly swift transition from starter to main course. Then he brought our bill without even asking us. We left at 7.15. Whilst we understand the Covid time restrictions, there was no mention of a second sitting after us, which we would have understood. Just felt we were being hurried along which wasn’t nice.

Always enjoy the Ivy but was surprised to be asked to leave at 3:30 when there were many tables of 2 available in our section. Would have probably stayed for another coffee or drink (or both!) but we were not given an option. Just curious as to why we were made to leave. Other than that we had a delicious meal and the service was, as usual, excellent.

Lovely Restuarant. I booked outside and was given a table inside, but the food service and decor were wonderful.
I have been many many times and it is my favourite London Restuarant

I went by myself as a evening treat for me and bump (I’m 5 months pregnant) the staff were so friendly and helpful so lovely to talk to I was waited on by Luis and he is the loveliest gentleman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! The food was served quickly, hot and very tasty you get what you pay for I highly recommended the fish chips and mushy peas which is also served with served with a lemon tartar sauce and vinegar, the sweet potato side served with a coconut and coriander sauce and for those who don’t drink alcohol or are pregnant the virgin Bellini I couldn’t have enjoyed my visit more than I did :) fantastic place

The hostess and the waiting staff on my table were very nice and kind people. However, my son’s sausage was burnt, the bottle of white wine was warm .. mostly one of the waiting staffs told my 2 years old toddler off for touching the couch on other table, by giving us unpleasant look.

Tried the suggestion of the day, linguine with crab, it was excellent. As the day was beautiful, we were lucky to be in the garden outside, so the noise level was fine.
Service was prompt and professional.

The occasion was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the choice of venue did not let us down. I won't describe it, other than to say go and you will be delighted with what you see. Elegant and relaxed, sophisticated and charming, lovely service and delicious food, all beautifully presented. As for the courtyard garden, I felt as if I had been transported to the mediterranean somewhere!

The Ivy Chelsea never lets me down. The service is outstanding and our waitress was amazing. Love that they remember everything! It's always so comfortable and reliable whether it's a business or social occasion. Just wish the Duck salad was more consistent in ingredients - it changes and sometimes is better than other times.

Terrible experience, the food was overcooked. Service was very slow and unapologetic, we had to wait 40 minutes before removing our first drinks. Had to send food back and we don’t normally complain, but this was terrible

We had to wait for our table for 25 mins while looking at other couples being seated in less than 2-3 mins. The hostesses were condescending. The food in Ivy used to be really good, it had deteriorated over the years and now it is very disappointing, especially for the price tag. Tuna tataki was of room temperature and not enjoyable, the duck in the duck salad was completely dry, mozzarella was gone off - we had to send it back. Not tasty at all, not enjoyable. The only thing left in this place is the ambiance, but even so not coming back to this place until they rethink their attitude and food.

Another lovely meal at Ivy Chelsea Garden. They dealt with the Covid safe matters well. Great food, and actually very good value. Friendly good service as ever.

Just a shame we live the other side of London and can't go more often!

We went for a Sunday brunch on a beautiful sunny morning. Our table in the conservatory in the garden was perfect Everybody was very helpful, efficient and polite. We were not rushed and could enjoy ourselves. The restaurant was busy and there was a good choice of dishes at a reasonable price.
