    We were a table of 6, we deducted service charge because poor service Constantly reminding about drink orders not turning up Two main meals chips didnt arrive until meals half eaten, and my meal turned up halfway through everyone else finishing theres. Poor service, never experienced this with Ivy restaurants before, hopefully get a better experience at the Ivy Mayfair on Wednesday!

    A beautiful looking venue - feels very “special occasion” and although prices are not cheap, they are definitely not extortionate and there’s a wide ranging menu on offer.

    The service at the beginning was very slow. When booking I informed the Ivy (Garden City) that a member of our party was actually celebrating their birthday ( that person was me and and it was my actual birthday on the 6th and I chose the Ivy as a special birthday treat) but absolutely no effort was made to mark the occasion by the restaurant. I have used other Ivy’s, such as Ivy Guildford, London’s Ivy Brasserie and Ivy Market Place and the Ivy on West Street several times. However I now feel that going to the Ivy doesn’t feel so special anymore. I have had better experiences at both Fortnum and Mason, and Claridges in the last few months so will probably choose to celebrate future occasions there.

    We ate on a Friday evening and the restaurant was very busy. We were shown to a table relatively quickly (I had booked) The food was lovely - both had the monkfish and prawn curry - but we waited a long time to order. Our wine glasses were not refilled untilwe asked, we were happy to pour our own wine but the bottle was taken away to a cooler. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were obviously trying to deal with everyone but I’ve had better service in other places. We will go back another time when it’s less busy.

    Such a beautiful setting, lovely food and attentive service. We were celebrating an engagement and they brought our a little dessert for the couple which was really kind. All the v food was tasty. Blacked cod was delicious but you need sides. Waiter not knowledgeable about the food or wine but it was x great besides that. Would definitely go again

    Food is always exceptional and comes quite quickly but the service is always pretty average. They are attentive and do the meal checks etc. but the lady taking the order didn't manage to crack a smile, slams down the plates and don't ask if you want another drink when they clear the empties.

    Overall a good eating experience. The creme brulee was outstanding. Just a few caveats, however. Mains portions are small. Vegetables are always extra, which bumps the price up. Non alcoholic cocktails are variable and expensive. My wife's elderflower was good by my bellini was minimalistic, rather bland and overpriced. It was also nothing like its alcoholic original

    Wonderful place to have lunch but service was not up to normal standard. Waited a long time to order and then drinks came at practically same time as food. It took a long time to order desserts then coffee came 20 mins before desserts and we had finished desserts before any other drinks arrived and we had to ask multiple times where drinks were. I come here fairly often and this is not normal. They are normally amazing all round. I have an assistance dog and they are wonderful with him. Putting us on a perfect table and bringing him water without even asking. The staff are very friendly and kind

    Service was shocking, completely forgotten about by waiter. Left waiting over an hour for food, when it did come was left sitting on the side for 10 minutes before waiter gave to us so was cold. Had to keep getting up to get the wine to top it up. Just completely shocking wasnt even that busy

    What a great find in the city. Staff should be commended for the service. Welcoming staff, amazing food and just an awesome dining experience. Staff allowed me to move twice, without hesitation or rolling eyes 🙄 as I saw seating I preferred with much needed better back support. I will be back.

    My son has a severe allergy to nuts and the staff serving us were amazing!!! We have to be very selective about where we dine, and we felt at ease that those attending to us were taking this matter very seriously and ensured that my son received a tasty, nut free meal which he enjoyed. I wish I had got the names of the staff members who served us, but THANK YOU so much for providing such excellent service! ;-)
