    The Ivy Clifton is my favourite restaurant for special occasions and I celebrated by birthday in style - its just always so bright, light and airy, full of colour and flowers and the staff really make it all so special! I've only been 3 times - twice for lunch and once for afternoon tea which was exceptionally good! Rose our main waitress for lunch was very attentive yet discrete and I loved her smart outfit and the trouble she took to make sure everything ran smoothly. We enjoyed a three course lunch and I decided to have two starters one for main and one to start. I had a mozzarella and cheddar cheese souffle light and fluffy and cooked to perfection, then scallops in foam of loveliness in pretty shells on seaweed - sublime! Finally the piece de resistance and the one all gossip about - The Chocolate Bombe for pudding and it didn't disappoint and was served with aplomb! Mine was served with a little lit candle! The food and staff were wonderful along with my special guests and it felt fun sitting at a table surrounded by other people who had made the effort to get a little bit dressed up too (although you don't have to). 5 Stars for me! I will be back. If you have a special occasion or even if you just fancy a treat - then I recommend you head to the Ivy Brasserie Clifton you won't be disappointed!

    Service was below average; the server seemed disinterested, didn't smile once, couldn't answer questions about the menu and was not attentive or easy to find when we needed to order more sides/drinks or ask for the bill etc. The concierge at the front desk was very welcoming and lovely though. The food was fine; nothing out of this world and some of the side dishes came out alarmingly quick which suggested microwaved. The menu options (from the 1917 menu) were a little odd for the season (heavy and stodgy). Vegetarian/vegan/gluten free was not listed on the menu anywhere. Everything was incredibly overpriced. The still water for the table (2x bottles) cost £11. The non-alcoholic cocktails were almost £10. And an espresso was £4.25. The setting is lovely and the ambience was good. The table was nice and roomy and the chairs were comfortable. The toilets were very far away (and not accessible) and smelled very strongly of too much artificial scent. So much so it really got in your throat and made you feel sick (especially the pregnant members of our party) - FYI this was the ladies bathroom, I can't comment on the gents. Unlikely to return as there are options with better food for less in the area.
