Excellent food. Full of flavour. Service was fantastic, once we had their attention. Superb cocktails. Only downside - was a little chilly inside to begin with.

We were met at the check in desk and shown quickly to our table, the atmosphere and food were first class. I booked a lunch time slot and I was surprised that the restaurant was almost full when we left at 2pm. The staff were very friendly and knew about the daily specials. Would highly recommend for a special event.

Wonderful meal. Menu is excellent and we really enjoyed the beautiful venue. Service was also outstanding. My only downside would be that I prefer there not to be an automatic service charge added. Overall fantastic and we can't wait to go again.

I have eaten here several times. Drove up from Bournemouth as wanted my partner to experience this fantastic place. We have both eaten at the original in London. Well done Bristol I enjoy your place more! My partner also suitably impressed! Thank you for accommodating our every wish/requests. Great service. Should have noted our hosts names. Sorry. But everybody came over well

A friend recommended the Ivy to us as being perfect for a family birthday dinner - and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, knowledgable but friendly, the food was superb and the whole evening was very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it to friends - and in fact my husband is already planning our next visit!

I booked the Ivy to meet my grown up children for a Christmas meal. My son lives in London, daughter in Bristol myself Devon, others from Bath. Great choice we all loved the meal and the restaurant. Fabulous place will come again. We all felt it was well worth the journeys. Lovely staff! Great prices !

Found the restaurant very welcoming and well maintained with well decked tables including white tablecloths that always tend to show the mark of good quality place . Menus provide a good choice of food as did the drinks menu. Staff were very good though there was a slight lapse in service caused by the changeover of shift late afternoon. Meant we had to wait then chase for what we had ordered just before shift change. None the less all of us 4 adults really enjoyed the meal and so to did the 3 year old twins sat with us.

Would thoroughly recommend restaurant to any family, friends and business colleagues for any occasion.

A good friend and I decided to do something special instead of buying each other pressies this year. We decided to have a cream tea, and we were so pleased with it. Great staff, lovely pre-Christmas atmosphere and as much tea with our scones as we could drink. Also I requested, upon booking, a table in the orangery, which we got. thank you.
