Ok so a fantastic starter of scallops that had so much taste and flavour only to be let down by a ribeye steak that looked fantastic but was pretty tough! Fair enough it was removed from the bill but really disappointed! Wife had fillet steak that was really good and a great dessert so I guess I just got unlucky! Service was good but table for two was quite small and difficult to hear waitress as very busy and loud. Will go again just for those scallops!

Fantastic food and service.
Only downside was we could only book a table for 17:45 however when we left after 19:00 there were lots of free tables.

Unlike other Ivy cafes the staff are not as friendly and they have changed the recipe for the halloumi sandwich and I didn’t like it

Pleasant meal but expensive .

Obcect strongly to the adding a service charge automatically.

Just a con to increase the price. I would rather tip the waitress direct

With service charge vat is charged so the government also share, and all the staff get a portion. Why? Don't you pay them enough.

Very disappointed booked for lunch for my friends 80th Birthday well before the occasion was given a table just inside the entrance next to a table with babies in proms, possibly I should have asked for a different table but felt slightly embarrassed as the young mothers would have heard.

We had a super meal at the Ivy last weekend and the best thing about it was that we were seated right in front of the fire in the conservatory area which meant we were toasty warm on a very cold day. The service was impeccable, the shallots were delicious as a starter and the mains were the usual standard followed by the chocolate bomb, which is always fantastic. The cocktails and wine were top notch too so all in all I would highly recommend the Ivy in Cobham, Surrey.

It was a Saturday evening and we knew it might be a bit noisy. We had asked for a table in the conservatory, but this was apparently not possible, and the four of us were initially seated at a table close to the bar and the noise level was HORRENDOUS! We asked to be moved somewhere quieter, and this was done with only a 5 minute delay and with sympathy for our plight! The manager (?) who looked after this said that they were aware of the problem and they had plans to open up a new dining area soon, further away from the bar.Some soft furnishings on the wall opposite the bar might also help.

The service at our new table, by Josh, was prompt and friendly. I enjoyed my choices (Tempura Prawns with salt & pepper squid, followed by Aromatic Duck Curry) and my wife enjoyed her Seared Scallops followed by Chicken Milanese, but our guests were less happy. My brother-in-law chose the Beef & Rosti special, which was tasty enough but he was astonished by the price (£34.95, with vegetables extra) which we were not told about beforehand. His wife chose to have two starters - Zucchini Fritti which was more tempura batter than zucchini, followed by Crispy Duck Salad in which there was very little duck.
Our desserts were more successful: a Chocolate Bombe and a Malted Banana ice cream, which we all shared.

It was nearly a very pleasant evening, but not as good as the lovely evening that my wife and I had for our wedding anniversary, on a Thursday in the Conservatory back in September.

This is our second visit to The Ivy and whilst previously we enjoyed an excellent visit this time we were a little disappointed. The staff are courteous and extremely helpful and the venue is stunning. However, the food a little over rated....our starters were the best and the desserts delicious but our lemon sole disappointing dare I say a little crisp in places. A lovely evening non the less and well worth a visit but I wonder if the name sells it rather than the food.

I think there are too many tables in the restaurant overall and there is not much room to move between each table and when you are eating, there is no room on the table for glasses, side dishes etc.

Booked for lunch with 2 friends and chose from a la carte menu. Service was fine and no complaints. Ambience o.k and comfortable enough with adequate space between tables. The food was o.k and portion size fair enough but not particularly exciting and probably typically brasserie style. However, when the bill was presented and we then paid £55.00 per head for 2 courses each, with pre lunch drinks ( beer ) and a bottle of house red, we all felt this was pretty expensive for what we had. The whole package did not make us feel like going again.

I love the Cobham Ivy, the only problem is the level of noise can sometimes get unbearable, as can the problems parking. But the parking problem was solved by excellent staff - the noise levels are sadly unsolvable, but would not let that put me off coming again.

Decided to come to The Ivy for a lunch date with my wife and it didnt disappoint. She had the truffle mushrooms for starters and sea bass for mains and I had the cured salmon and crab for starters and roasted lamb rump for mains. Definitely recommend coming here, the service was great to.

Meal for family of 5 with three children under 12. Very good dining experience with great atmosphere and tasty food. Good choice on children’s menu. Attentive staff who were very polite and helpful. The desserts were especially well received and when finished the children decided they couldn’t actually move as were so full! If they are happy then it makes the whole experience better. Thanks to the staff. We will be back....

Sadly, the only positive about The Ivy, Cobham is the ambiance. The service was awful and food completely average. My friend ordered an open prawn sandwich and had to send it back twice before they got it right. My observation would be that the staff need better training. Unfortunately, this restaurant tries to be something its not, trading on the Ivy reputation when it can't even master the basics of standard dishes.

A great atmosphere and service. A little disappointed that they had already run out of the course we choose, Black Cod, so early on a Friday ! But the alternative Sea Bass was excellent. All in all a great night would definitely go again.

Quality of food poor. Quality of food does not match the ambiance. I get the relaxed dining menu but it needs to be made well with fresh ingredients. The prawn cocktail looked like it was in a cafeteria refrigerated display for days. Old lettuce in a metal ice cream dish.

We were seated in the conservatory, which has a lovely ambience. Unfortunately it was not very warm and my back was distinctly cold by the time we got up to leave. The main restaurant felt much more warm and cosy when we went through. The food was good but expensive for what it was. It also come through rather quickly which does not help to make you feel welcome and relaxed. By the time we wanted to order dessert we were 'forgotten' and it seemed ages before anyone showed up.
At arrival there was a white Mercedes parked right in front of the steps to the front doors, and since this was my first time here it blocked the view of the entrance. It was very awkward and unwelcoming. In the reception area I was greeted friendly enough by only 1 out of the 2 ladies, which I felt was rude. So, no, overall it was not good enough to repeat and I would not recommend.

Visited many times always enjoyed it ,however the food this time was not up to their normal standard. The calamari needed seasoning, main course of fried fish was very sub standard ,tasteless mushy texture and the fries after five minutes like Cardboard. The lamb shepherds pie was lumpy and very gristly. We have two more bookings before Christmas and hope things improve.

A good experience overall but we did find the noise level made conversation difficult. Main courses took quite a long time to arrive but were good, and the delay did imply freshness.
