Lovely restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Service was excellent and the food very good. As it was the last evening service before the coronavirus shutdown it was a little unusual so am looking forward to a more normal visit!

Lovely building in which to enjoy a leisurely lunch. Food was very good quality, beautifully presented. Staff very pleasant, efficient and welcoming. Beers were a little on the pricey side but overall it was a perfect lunch and I would highly recommend

The menu has changed and 2 of my wife’s favourites were no longer available.
Other choices were therefore made and all the food was very good as usual.
Maybe the service was a fraction down on this visit but that could just be my feeling on the day

Service was very good on what turned out to be a busy night at the restaurant.

The ribeye steak I had was good but I would have expected more from an Ivy restaurant.
Starter and desert were excellent.
Wine and cocktail thoroughly enjoyable.

As always, the atmosphere and surroundings were excellent.

A group of 8 met on a Saturday night from 7 - 10.00pm. We were very well looked after and the meal well received by all. The noise level was OK for conversation and much better than many places these days.

Good food, excellent service. Look and feel of the place was great and an experience on itself. Only one small remark: a wardrobe to hang your coat would be nice.

We had a great lunch celebration, glad we came at 12 , became very busy and bit noisy later on, still very enjoyable , my burger lunch was excellent, service attentive and polite without overbearing , we loved the attention to detail on everything, our needs anticipated without having to ask , if I had one niggle , the stairs to the ladies were bit steep for us , with slight mobility issues ,should have asked for a disabled toilet , will know for next time , and we will be back

Excellent food and a wonderful waiter. I believe his name is Markus. He was perfect. Attentive without overdoing it. Very kind to me, as my friend was late arriving. One of the best waiters I have ever met.
I love The Ivy, Clifton.
The Girls at the desk very polite and helpful.

Two in our party ordered a Shepherd's Pie which was on the Daily Special List. Order was taken but after a while we were told that there was only one Shepherd Pie - so we changed our order for one of us. Then we were told that there were no Shepherd Pies at all - so we all ordered something else. But when the bill came we were charged for a Shepherd Pie that was nowhere to be seen! But this was a nice looking restaurant with a good ambience.

This was my second visit. I booked it for my Mum's 70th birthday dinner, specifically because of the decor in the main room. We were initially a little disappointed that it was thought appropriate for a 70th birthday guest to be placed on a cramped sofa table in the back corner of the boisterously loud conservatory. However, our request for a table in the main room was instantly met and our experience from then was second to none. The staff were exemplary, and it was everything I would expect from a first class establishment. I'll be coming back.

It was like going to a regular and favourite restaurant: warm welcome, prompt and smiling service and wonderful attention to detail. The wine list offers a spread of interesting wines and the menu includes interesting and innovative dishes as well as traditional favourites, all beautifully presented.

Had a lovely evening celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. There was a bar (small) to have a pre-dinner drink at, which made an enjoyable start to the evening. We had requested a nice table and indeed we got one. The atmosphere was great in there - busy -it was obviously fully booked - but without feeling overcrowded. The waitress was very lovely and after dessert they surprised us with 2 little celebration cakes with a candle and happy anniversary chocolate. The food was very good and we will definitely go back.

As always food delicious service and welcome impeccable ... the Atlantic scallops were to die for. As was the classic signature Shepard’s pie ! Also the duck salad with watermelon so yummy ... zucchini Fritti is a must too.
Cocktails amazing as are the guys behind the bar.
Brunch .. Bloody Mary’s are fab eggs Benedict royal .. fish cake with runny poached egg ... heaven
Thank u to Mimo and his staff... first class professional friendly service

Food was lovely but not the same ambience as Cardiff restaurant. Just little things like coat being taken at door then given ticket instead of put on seats. Had to wait at door for a while as no staff available.
Found being tucked in corner was just too noisey for conversation. Also there was a bad smell where we were sat and on leaving found it was coming from a picture frame on the wall which put a dampener on the brunch as was for my birthday.
