My wife and I are regulars at the Covent Garden Ivy and Bath Ivy and this was our first visit here with friends. Impressive surroundings and nice ambience, but definitely a notch down on food quality and service compared to Covent Garden. Overall a nice restaurant and it would be over fussy of me to list the faults we did find. We've had better dining experiences elsewhere in Bristol, but would recommend this Ivy to friends.
We both that it was excellent. The food was well presented and delicious and very good value for the high standard that was offered. The surroundings were lovely and the staff welcoming and professional. We will certainly return.....
Met a friend for lunch who I had not seen since lockdown. We both love The Ivy so it was no contest when choosing where to go!
Everything great as usual
Beautiful restaurant, excellent food and very good service.
It really is a special place, it has a great feel and the location is perfect. It always has fresh flowers and displays and this really sets it apart. Great place
We had a great time. Staff were attentive and really friendly.The food was delicious and presented beautifully.... timing was good ...a great evening that we really enjoyed..
We will be back......
Simply not worth the money and far below the quality of other establishments that I have eaten at .
The scones wee the best part but other than the savouries the rest was much too sweet .
Lovely afternoon tea at The Ivy for a birthday treat would thoroughly recommend
We had the fixed price lunch and its was very tasty. Service was nice and relaxed. Enjoyed the non-alcoholic cocktails
Very nice lady opened the door for us as we had a wheelchair then we were taken to our table!
The waiter was very good at his job and nice and friendly!
Food fab as always
Beautiful building. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Staff were all helpful and ordered us a taxi with no fuss at the end of the evening. Lobster linguine was excellent.
Had a very lovely evening with a large group. Food and service were both excellent.
Ok, dining here a little overrated. The small tables aren’t great as too close when the waiting staff are serving the table next to you. End up with someone’s back, bottom, in your face !
Very pleasant and large restaurant in a lovely building. Very nice and very efficient staff without exception. A good choice from those a standard wide-ranging menu for lunch and also the specials for the day menu so plenty to choose from. I hadn’t quite expected the service charge to be quite as high as it was but I am aware that the mandatory service charges a percentage is charged in many places now so it is not unusual
Our poor waiter was very pleasant but new. The lunch menu only had 4 options. I chose the confit duck and got the vegetable curry. It took a while to reach us and I was either too hungry or polite to tell the waiter. It was nice though!
Brunch for a friends 50th…. Perfect x
We went for breakfast for my mums birthday. We had been the year before and had a fabulous time! This trip was very disappointing in comparison. Weird atmosphere, despondent waiting staff, short staffed , hard cold eggs that we had to send back .
I’m not sure I would return or recommend anytime soon/ which is a shame . I hope they get back on track !
Absolutely lovely, had an amazing time for my partners birthday! Everyone treated us so nice and the food!!! That was the best part, 100% recommend
It was really busy but with a nice atmosphere. The food fantastic and surprisingly good value for money. I couldn’t recommend this restaurant eneough!
A very nice evening meal. There was a little problem, but it was readily sorted out by the Team, such that it didn’t spoil the occasion. No hesitation in recommending The Ivy, Clifton
We had a wonderful late lunch / early supper with our son and his girlfriend and will definitely be back
We went to The Ivy for a birthday lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Excellent service - thank you - good food and a great ambience. We’ll be back.
Enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon in great surroundings with attentive staff.
Went for a Birthday lunch and the food was amazing and service was excellent, staff were friendly
Compared to The Ivy in Cardiff, Clifton was very average. Food was no different to that in a pub. The table although having been cleaned was very stained and smeary. Toilets lacked hand gel..
The restaurant was half empty but we were given a very small table in a very cramped corner.
Lovely breakfast with very efficient service. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Really lovely evening. Excellent menu and lovely food. Staff really polite and helpful. Good atmosphere.
We always enjoyed our time at the Ivy. I feel the menu is not changed often enough and we had to send our coke back as it was flat this was not the first time this has happened. We just felt a little bit flat this time.
Great food and service, will definitely return when next in Bristol
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, we had the duck curry which was really good, however portion sizes were quite small, also not happy paying for service charge, l think that should be left to the diner to decide, and the wine was very pricey
However we had a really lovely time and would definitely return
Beautiful experience from the moment we arrived. Thank you team Ivy for making mum’s birthday so memorable.
Excellent service and atmosphere. Would have liked a Chocolate éclair or vanilla slice.
The Ivy was busy and seemed like it was understaffed, food was warm but not hot, I cannot really blame the staff as nobody was standing still doing nothing, just one of those days I think.
We had a very enjoyable meal, but found it stressful not having the phone number of the venue. Being elderly we took the bus, and as the local busses were not running to time, were worried that we would not arrive in time for our meal. Even with our mobile phone we did not have a number we could call to let them know we were on our way. The start of our day was stressful but overall it was a good day out.
The Ivy is a lovely place to be for that special meal / occasion.
We had wanted to thank our Mum for looking after our house ; which allowed us to go on a much needed holiday .
The Ivy was recommended by a friend and we were glad we had taken up his recommendation .
The Ivy has been decorated with imagination and the ambiance is just right .
Our server ( Denisha ) was a credit to the company & made our experience at the Ivy a very memorable one .
The only negative , was my husband’s steak which was not warm . This was rectified at once with a completely new meal . He assured me that it was cooked just the way he wanted it . Overall, i can’t wait for another excuse to visit the Ivy in Clifton , Bristol .
Thank you .
The whole experience was a great one for all four of us. Beautifully furnished and appointed in the rear dining room. Great menu with plenty of choice. Service
very efficient and pleasant - very ice young lady looked after us faultlessly.
Final touch of lighted candle in an eclair was greatly appreciated by my daughter
whose birthday it was. The food was rated as delicious by all present.
Many many thanks.
Previous visits to the Ivy a couple of years ago had been fantastic high end experiences deftly hitting the sweet spot between top end quality in a relaxed atmosphere. Yesterday’s visit was very far from that.
Main courses came out tepid warm not hot.
Rose wine was room temperature.
Had ticked Birthday when booking via Open Table and despite two staff mentioning about something happening (we really didn’t expect anyone to do anything) by the end of the evening they seem to have forgotten it. Not sure if it was too much bother for the remaining staff, but seemed a very odd way to behave. We really wouldn’t have thought twice about just saying “happy birthday” and leaving it at that. Don’t raise expectations if you aren’t going to deliver!!
Sadly a birthday meal which did not get anywhere close to expectations.
Amazing food, beautiful surroundings.
The Chocolate Bomb is incredible
Dinner with close friends
