    Exceptional as always. In going to this restaurant you are always guaranteed fabulous food, attentive staff, value for money and a real buzz. This restaurant is a well oiled organised establishment that never fails to deliver &amp; I say this a frequent attendee. They often add a little touch for special occasions which always delights guests we bring.

    Took two friends for a birthday present. Left embarrassed by the lack of service and attention we received. Also shocked to have spent over £100 on 3 mediocre cream teas and 3 glasses of fizz Won’t be taking anyone back and definitely won’t recommend. Should have gone to the bluebird!

    One of my favourite and go to Ivy restaurants but sadly this time it wasn’t the best experience. The courtyard is now covered which makes it very dark, almost jungle like and it’s overcrowded with tables. I wasn’t able to push my pram through the customers dining nor was I comfortable enough to enjoy my meal with the pram and highchair literally on top of me. The staff were completely overwhelmed and I assume this resulted in us complaining about our food, which was cold/burnt/salty. They were also unable to stay on top of orders and our wine top up etc.

    Disappointing food. Shepherd’s pie looked like it had been under warming lights for a while while the broccoli was barely cooked and the knives far from sharp enough to cut through. A place leaning on its reputation rather than earning it.

    Waiter was most impolite! We wanted separate checks but we did not get it although all other tables around us got separate checks. We also ordered bread which was never served. That honestly ruined the whole stay at the restaurant. It was such a nice atmosphere there and if the waiter did a better job it would have been a great stay

    Lack of staff. Means you are waiting for everything. Have to wait at the door for too long and then be greeted by a moody receptionist, then have to wait for 5 mins to be taken to the table. Had to ask twice for wine to be delivered to table which then arrived at same time as mains. Sadly disappointing and even quality of the food has got worse

    Waited nearly an hour for starters to come - starters and mains then came all at the same time which we were not asked if we wanted. Took 45 minutes for one soft drink to come, service was barely there at best. Have never left a bad review for anywhere but the experience was so poor I had to.

    Usually love the Ivy Chelsea Garden but the service was extremely substandard. Our booking was at 3pm and by 3.30pm we still hadn’t been asked if we wanted a drink, let alone water, and no order taken. When our order of food arrived, we had to prompt the waitress again for water. We had to flag down someone for the bill too. We were just in for afternoon tea, but if we’d been planning a three course meal, I dread to think how long it would take to get through the process. Not charming at all, unlike they usually are

    Terrible customer service, seating staff were rude, making us wait more than 20 minutes for our table in an empty restaurant, then seated us at a table indoors despite our reservation being for outside. When we complained we had to wait another 10 minutes to be seated outside, bearing in mind the restaurant was empty. Our waitress was excellent but the seating staff were imperious, arrogant and rude.

    Ivy is a restaurant that we like a lot but it is true that lately we have been sometimes disappointed but this time, Sunday on the occasion of Father's Day. EVERYTHING was catastrophic from start to finish. that's why this time I'm taking the time to write this review. We had a reservation at 2:15 p.m. for 4 people but we only arrived at 3 because my son's flight was canceled (as often at the moment) so we were told to wait at the bar because he had to change table, no worries. .... So we stayed at the bar for 20min waiting for our table, after taking our aperitif order for 15min (the bartender never said hello to us, passing other people with us), our aperitif was served to us at table 10min later. We placed our order, a long wait, our bread arrived, dry and not hot, appetizers without any taste, the main dishes arrived; the seabass was raw on the bone, with stale peas, linguine with zucchini, "8" pasta that was soaked in warm water with 1/10th tasteless zucchini, my son's breaded escalope made the half the size usually served and its garnish, a mash potato (after having claimed it 3 times) arrived when its dish was already finished. Given this disaster we did not take dessert! During the meal we had to ask for our bottle of mineral water 3 times because since the beginning we had not had it! and on the bill they charged 3! (we told them, they obviously changed but it proves how lost they were without anyone to manage it all well) The staff was lost, for a restaurant like Ivy, with the prices they charge, that all the dishes were so bad! It is inadmissible that from beginning to end everything is catastrophic. I'm not ready to go back

    The restaurant is super nice, the food was good as well and the waitress is been very kind and friendly. The only thing we didn’t like were the 2 receptionists. The one at the front door didn’t smile when we enter in the restaurant and didn’t Wellcome us and the same happened with the second girl that brought us to the table. So overall my experience was good, however in a place like this I wasn’t expecting such a bad Wellcome.
