Contemporary British
Ideally located between the stunning Sussex Coastline and the beautiful South Downs, the Ivy Chichester Brasserie is the perfect spot for anyone taking a break between shopping on the city's bustling high street, or the visitors who flock to see its famous cathedral and art gallery.

The ground floor includes a round bar area while the restaurant's stained-glass windows take their design cues from the history that surrounds this beautiful cathedral city. Lavish furnishings and other eclectic design touches will appeal to theatre-goers here for the acclaimed Chichester Festival. The brasserie's outdoor terrace features comfortable seating, plants and lanterns, so when it's cold outside, you can still dine alfresco.

    Wow this place is amazing. We had a great meal there yesterday. Staff are great very attentive to all needs. Food was very good and well portioned. Drinks are on the expensive side and wasn’t told we could have tap water so spent £9 on 2 bottles of water. We will go again

    We came with an open view as others had nade us aware of issues. We found this not to be so. We were given the seats I had requested,. Allowed to selltle down with no pressure to order. When it became apparent we wished to order fdrinks ,halp was given ;The Rose wine was served delisiously cold. With a varied menu ,,adequate choice. Service efficent,delivered with a very pleasent demeanor. We will return

    A pleasant atmosphere but the service was slow - it took almost 3 hours for 2 courses. The food was a little disappointing; the courgette frites were served in an enormous portion, they were not crispy at all, rather limp in fact. The duck salad was pleasant, the chicken milanese was rather dry, the steak tartare very well spiced - there was certainly no need for the Worcester sauce or tabasco that accompanied it - and the blackened cod very tasty. Both the food and drinks are expensive, so standards need to improve to justify the premium nature of the venue. We will certainly give it another chance, but at this stage it is not up to the standard of the other branches we have visited.

    Unfortunately, we had a waitress who kept forgetting our simple order of two cream teas. She initially declared she would only be with us for an hour, until the end of her shift. She started by bringing half of the order, forgetting the hot water, tap water and scones. She seemed worried about the temperature of the tea pot as she placed it on the table, appearing to burn herself as she did so. As she left the table, she told us what she had forgotten, implying she would soon return. A while later, the diet coke arrived from a different server, minus the tap water. We then noticed there was no sugar on the table, and my partner had to approach our waitress for the sugar, who then seemed almost oblivious to our table, as she wandered around the restaurant chatting with other staff, and attending other tables. We wanted to wait for the scones to arrive before starting the hot drinks. 25 minutes later, I had to find the waitress again, who was standing by what appeared to be the Floor Manager at the till. I told them both that our hot drinks had gone cold, while still waiting for our scones. The Floor Manager offered 'refills', and our waitress motioned to the screen as if they were already aware of the scone issue, but unable to identify where the problem was until I met with them. We were then brought another set of tea pots, etc, with the new server not clearing away the old items, making the table unnecessarily busy. The Floor Manager apologised, and the scones soon arrived, which were nicely presented. The new server was very attentive, but the original waitress and her apology were absent. We were frankly shocked by this experience. It's a beautiful restaurant, and there were lots of staff and a general air of professionalism. For them to mess up such a simple order, in such spectacular fashion was unexpected. We noted that the new waitress even added a service charge, which I thought showed poor taste, since she was aware of the problem.

    A full restaurant for a Saturday late/long lunch did not impact on an attentive and timely table service. A spacious table area in the centre of the restaurant benefited from colourful and bright decor enhanced by the glass roofed area in that area. Very tasty, good quality and well presented food which was reflected in the price.

    Noisy as are all the Ivy’s we have visited. But wonderful decor and atmosphere. The toilets are amazing! Food was good if not over exciting. Try the fried courgette as a starter to share. Really good. The Malabar fish curry was superb! Steak tartare was nothing to write home about. Have had better. Will go back. Dress is very casual ( almost sloppy ) which is a shame when the staff are so well dressed.

    Brilliant service, it was so busy but you wouldn’t have thought it because it did effect our experience or wait times. There were some very unpleasant customers, and we saw staff handle them with patience and grace. Certainly More than I would have with such rudeness.

    Had an 11.45 table booked. Even at that time one of our chosen starters wasn't available. Ordered Jasmin rice to get with the Blackened Cod. Rice was over sticky and and gloopy. It was a lovely warm day outside so aircon was on internally, but it was at shiver temperature making it unpleasant. Our 2nd visit since it opened, not as good as the first time.

    Got seated and forgotten about. Had to ask to be served, drinks took quite a while to arrive, and food followed. Service is not a patch on Winchester or brighton, didn't get asked once if all was ok, probably won't use this one again.

    Had a fabulous meal at the Ivy on Friday, but just a couple of points to mention. Didn't like the wine glasses - they were more like lager glasses. Needed a longer stem. The beer glass was more like a vase - too thick in the edge. Last one - the Eton Mess didn't have enough meringue in it.

    My husband & I had breakfast: scrambled eggs with salmon, eggs royal, berry juice, orange juice, cappuccino and The Ivy breakfast tea. We enjoyed the food - well presented and delicious. The juices were fresh. My husband enjoyed the coffee, however, I was a bit disappointed by the tea. One mere tea bag in the pot which tasted dull. Here I’d have expected better quality. The staff is well trained and the brasserie seems to be run professionally. In general, we much enjoyed our stay and shall revisit.
