The ivy have been promoting their eat out to help out menu heavily online. However we asked for the menu 3 times and were refused. (Dinning on a Wednesday) turns out they had sold out of some of the menu so were no longer offering it - even though 95% of the options were still available. We were allowed to see the menu in the end.

Apart from the awkward moment along with out cocktails been sent to the wrong table. It was a lovely evening.

Our second experience at a restaurant since they have opened. Very good, nearly felt like normal and the staff were very well versed in how to manage social distancing. Overall a lovely evening out.

I was nervous about going but I didn't need to have worried. From the warm greeting to the thank you at the end of was really safe and happy experience. Some tables have been removed and there are some screens between tables. Your temperature is checked and there is "hands free" sanitiser as well as a small bottle of sanitiser on each table. The food is as good as ever and there is a fantastic menu for the eat out scheme which us incredible value. Well done to all the staff and I will be back.

Superb ambience , food and service. Small details - own brand hand sanitiser on tables, Menus on phones if wished.
Food delightful , we both had Tuna Carpaccio and Fillet Steak and the chocolate bombe was wonderful- I don’t normally have desert.
Excellent value as also taking part in Eat Out to Help Out.

Though on the higher price scale of places to eat in bristol, the ivy is definitely worth it! The food was lovely and the portions were just perfect. Service was professional and welcoming! Thank you :)

Atmosphere and service very good (even with Covid restrictions). Duck Salad starter very nice but a little under whelmed with main course and dessert.

Always massively impressed when I come to the Ivy, my boyfriend and I have been three times and we love it more and more every time! The restaurant itself is stunning, with highly trained staff who’s service make a massive difference to your experience. The food and drinks are always lovely, but don’t be fooled into buying separate sides as the portions are quite big! Our server went above and beyond to congratulate my boyfriend for passing his exams with a little congratulations cake which really made the evening :) x

This was our second meal after lockdown at The Ivy for my husband’s birthday. A friend of ours initially very kindly took us there for Sunday brunch, which was just perfect and the hollandaise sauce was the nicest I have ever had (in my view, some are quite bitter and can destroy the whole dish). But, probably more importantly at the moment, we were all particularly impressed with the new layout, the spacing of the tables and all of the precautions taken, which could not be bettered, hence my decision to go back on Tuesday. We both felt very safe and relaxed at all times and the food, as ever, is just delicious. They also brought out a little cake with a candle as a surprise which was lovely. I really couldn’t recommend a visit highly enough.

No attention from waiting staff. Starters and main arrived at same time. Lobster linguine arrived cold we only realised after seasoning this with chilli. Sent it back to kitchen ...we reasoned and neatly blew our heads off as same one had been warmed up so now doubly seasoned. Poor for a £31 main

Really lovely food.

The Ivy have removed some tables so there is more space now for Covid precautions, but it hasn’t impacted the ambience inside. It has been done really well.

Service was impeccable.

An excellent night with great food and service. Covid measures were very discreet and so it felt almost pre-pandemic with the way the Ivy have put their measures in place.
