Lovely attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble. The meals were delicious, would definitely recommend
Excellent in every way. It so lovely to be able to choose food which is a ‘bit different ‘!
Wonderful experience - love The Ivy! Super food, fabulous service. It was my Mums 79th birthday and the staff made it extra special.
My husband bought me a voucher for Xmas as I have always wanted to visit. I was excited to go and was not disappointed with the whole experience. I reserved the table on line through book a table and on arrival we were shown strait to our place. Very little waiting for our waitress to come and ask about drinks and took our order. When she returned she checked we were ready and took our food order. Starters of crispy duck and prawn cocktail were a good size, well presented and very tasty. We also ordered bread and were presented with a whole crusty loaf! There was a nice gap between courses and our well cooked flavoursome mains (COD and minute steak) went down very well indeed. It’s true the drinks are a tad expensive, but we were prepared for that and didn’t let it spoil what was a very lovely couple of hours of indulgence. Thanks to our waitress who was attentive without being intrusive, and obliged with a doggy box to take my leftover steak home for the dog😀 Can’t wait to visit again, hope I don’t have long to wait
A lovely venue for a celebration and the food was excellent and the service impeccable. However I was disappointed with how close the tables for two were together and the noise level was deafening. Yes it was busy but not full but I literally could not hear what my husband was saying.
The service was slow to start as we were left for 10 minutes without being offered a drink. After that it was fine. The food was excellent as was the wine. It is a bit noisy and can be difficult to converse, but overall a lovely evening. I didn’t expect anything much to celebrate my birthday but why ask on the booking process if you then ignore it?
Great place for a get-together with friends. Nice buzzy atmosphere and waiters well trained. Good selection of food to suit different tastes.
Great food at a reasonable price for an A Class venue. Efficient, friendly staff. Felt as thou you were a valued diner. Never pressured into choosing any one option. Listened to. A fantastic Thursday lunch. Will be back again
Had a great table. Great welcome, great food and great service. All at a reasonable price too
Just had a wonderful experience treating my elderly mother to a cream tea at the Clifton Ivy. The ambience was lovely, presentation outstanding and service was perfect. The scones were newly baked and still warm with mouth-watering taste and accompanied by plentiful supplies of cream and strawberries. A choice of hot drinks and no extra charge for refills. Altogether a very pleasant afternoon. We will definitely return.
The food wasn’t as good as I expected. You pay for the service and the ambience. I was expecting nicer food for that price
Lovely food, very tasty though I found the main course Monkfish curry lacking in fish and the monkfish I did have was quite tough to eat.
The music playing in the background was quite loud, probably a sign of our age, but we found we had abit of a headache when we came out through the music playing it was hard to have a conversation.
Felt very welcome from the moment we walked in.
Recognized that it was a special birthday for my wife.
Offered a choice of orangery or full restaurant - Choose the orangery, which was very nice.
Breakfast was great, the finest Eggs Royal that I've had anywhere, we also got complimentary coffee's.
My wife also got a special pastry with a candle (for free), very nice touch.
Staff were great, food was great, ambiance was great!
The food and service were excellent the wine was very good as well. Tables quite close together but as t was Sunday not a problem as it wasn’t fully seated
Second time we have come to eat here. Beautiful building, exquisite food.
The place & decor is stunning and gives a really nice chilled atmosphere. Beautiful restaurant. The choice of food is really good and very varied.
Drinks were ok but spirits and mixers were very expensive for what you were getting.
If you are a table of 2, I pre warn you the service is dreadful as all they worry about is the Service to the larger tables. Food was alright but not brilliant as you would expect!
Lovely setting, nice food. Staff very friendly and helpful and attentive. Slightly expensive but food does taste very nice.
Excellent birthday brunch and such great value for fantastic food
Seated on a table for two but it felt like we were also sat with the couple at either side of us.
Asked to move to a less cramped table which was accommodated.
Service was good, not the best Ivy I have visited overall but still good.
We have visited the Ivy on a number of occasions and until yesterday was very pleased. However the first coffee’s ordered were very lukewarm, of which we informed our waiter. The cost of these was removed from the final bill without us asking, and therefore thank you.
My food was absolutely fine and up to the standard that is expected. However my husband food was not so good. Firstly the scrambled egg was overdone and no butter was put of the toast, which made it very dry. Secondly the mushrooms was slightly underdone ( hard in the middle ) and the bacon was not crispy as pre the menu. My husband did not complain about the eggs, toast and mushrooms, but did send the bacon back to be put under the grill.
It was disappointing as this was a birthday treat, however I am sure it was a one off for whatever reason and we will return, but would not hesitate to complain if the same issues arise.
Fantastic evening. Both the food and service was second to none.
Great food. Great service. Fab location. Wonderful staff. Would go again in a heartbeat!
On arrival we weren’t very keen on the table we were allocated, however the staff that dealt with us were really helpful, and in spite of the restaurant being very busy they were able to accommodate our request which kind of made the meal for us. We were really happy with the service, food & ambience. Thank you for making our lunch so special & enjoyable.
Our first visit. We sat in the conservatory and enjoyed a superb brunch with great service.
Never disappoints! Probably our 7th visit, always have a wonderful time!
It was a lovely and glamorous evening, the dining room is an absolute knockout and we felt like film stars. Beautiful menus, both food and drink, everything sounded wonderful and we had trouble choosing. Service was fine, a little bit fussy (our waiter sounded like he would have happily poured the morel sauce all over us and licked it off, he was pretty enthusiastic - he then promptly forgot what we actually ordered and brought us the wrong dish). We both ordered fish and because my partner's dish was wrong, they took both dishes away and brought out the right dish 5 minutes later. My trout had suffered a bit for 5 minutes more on a hot plate, sadly. So I can't say conclusively how amazing the cooking was, my dinner got cooked twice. Andrei's sea bass was absolutely beautiful however.
They were really busy on the night and there were staff everywhere, it was impressive, but I'd say they could do more with fewer staff if they invested a bit more in them. We felt a bit hidden in the corner and like it was easy to forget us - possibly a function of where we were in the dining room. The tables in the middle and the booths around the outside seemed to get a lot more attention. We did book on the day though.
Lots of the dishes were really good value for money in my opinion, very high quality ingredients and proper servings, it didn't feel like we got squeezed for 'fine dining' money.
I think this is a wonderful restaurant for a celebration meal or evening out, worth saving up for and savouring. I'd book further in advance and try and stipulate a table with a better view of the action and the ambience, to make the most of being in such a gorgeous space.
First time for me dinning at The Ivy
What a great experience! The food and service is outstanding.
Easy to use online booking service.
Would highly recommend the food especially the Shepherds Pie!!
Great architecture and ambience, the menu is very eclectic and very good value. The staff are very attentive without being patronising. Super wine list.
We toook friends out for lunch, the service and the food were first class, we thoroughly enjoyed our first ever visit and have already recommended The Ivy to other friends
The place is so beautiful, the food delicious and the service perfect 👌
Really enjoyed our lunch. Food was so good. The staff were excellent. Was busy so noise level was high. Love the ivy x
Wonderful breakfast as a treat for Mum’s 72nd birthday- she had never been
Delicious veggie breakfast
Enjoyable late lunch. Not much difference between set meal and a la carte. Three of four meals very good, other spolt by tough steak.
Beautiful space. Good acoustics so easy to talk. Efficient service and quality product
Fabulous brunch with thoughtful extras for my daughters birthday
I went for a birthday meal on Sunday 10th of March. I went with a group of friends and was served by a waitress who came across incredibly rude and we all felt uncomfortable by her patronising tone, we are all teenagers and are obviously we were younger then some of the other customers but the waitress was incredibly rude and condescending towards us. The drinks came 15 minutes after and at different times as well we ordered them which was way too long for a drink order. Overall for a birthday celebration I was unhappy with the service of the ivy.
What a lovely way to start a Sunday, mid morning breakfast followed by some strolling and shopping. The Ivy Clifton has great food and attentive staff, the coffee is a great kick start to the day. If you're looking for an alternative to lunch I would highly recommend the breakfast menu. The only negative is their reception hostess in NEVER friendly (I've dined here many times), but once you get beyond the check in the staff are super professional and friendly.
We had a wonderful first visit to the Ivy Bristol. A warm and professional welcome and an attentive but not invasive service. The service team ran a slick operation and went above and beyond with personalised requests. The atmosphere was great and seating cosy and stylish. The food was first rate and brilliantly presented. The stairs down to the toilets are steep but if you are good in high heels you will be fine!
