Drinks expensive.

food was nice but not a huge choice, expected more from the menu.

Nice looking place.

Good service but not too keen to return.

12.5% service charge added on to the bill, I always think the customer should decide how good the service is.

The service was so fast, we didn’t have time to settle in, the starter came out immediately followed by the main 15 min after we had finished the starter! It was all so rushed!! My partner wanted to order a glass of wine with his main but didn’t have time as our main dishes came out so quickly. We also felt very rushed by the waitress to order our desserts, she asked us twice and looked very annoyed, I’m assuming her shift finished at 10pm. Ambience dropped quite quickly after 10pm! It was a pity, the restaurant is so stunning! My birthday dinner was a let down unfortunately!

Great food, good service but too rushed. Only having a restricted time to keep the table is not conducive to having a relaxed meal. Everything is great, but to insist that you have coffee with dessert is not acceptable.

The service was inattentive. No offers for extra drinks while eating and took a long time to order a coffee and get the bill. We both had the tuna special and it was not that special sadly: we should have chosen something from the main menu as the tables around us certainly looked like they had nicer looking plates of food. The tuna was cooked well and had a nice salsa but it was rather uninspired and disappointing.

A special dinner for a special daughter going off to Uni this weekend. The Ivy is our treat place, and it didn't disappoint. The whole family found something delicious they wanted to eat on the menu and the service was great. Thank you.

Attentive staff, nice atmosphere with a buzz not a drone and surprisingly good food—surprising in that it was much better than all our previous experiences in The Ivy chain. As a value for money proposition it showed Coppa up to be underwhelming and overpriced.
As Cobham residents we shall certainly be back—well done.

This was our second time here, it was for my husband's birthday. This restaurant is truly a gem. My only tiny bone to pick is, that alsthough there is a variety of foods and the quality is great, there are not that many vegan options (especially starter and dessert) to choose from (but the vegan food they do have there is lovely)
But generally it is a great place with lovely ambience with good food at a reasonable price

We had afternoon tea for a friends special birthday / the tea didn’t arrive until after the food had been there almost eaten. Three sandwiches wasn’t enough and four cakes for £27 and there was no offer of refill of tea / The staff were completely rushed off their feet and everything was delayed / not a great experience when usually it’s so good

Unfortunately although we had previously booked, our table was not ready for 30/35 minutes. We were offered the bar and were well served but it is the middle of a busy thoroughfare and we were not able to come together as a family. When finally shown to our table, our waitress was extremely good and efficient, making lunch very enjoyable. The food was great. Overall, a good family experience but it would have been improved if our reserved table had been ready earlier.

This was the first time we have visited on a Sunday lunchtime and were pleased to see how lovely and busy and buzzy it was.
My very fussy brother in law said that his meal was the very best he had for a long time and both my sister and he loved it in The Ivy - their first visit.
The food was as always excellent and the service faultless.
Thank you very much for making my birthday so special with my Happy Birthday Profiterole - a very nice touch indeed!

Unfortunately my friends 40th birthday turned out to be a so-so event at The Ivy. The service was ok but the food was bland and not enjoyable. Our server did not check on us throughout our meal so when collecting the plates asked how the food was. As our plates were mostly still full she did refund one of the meals but I can’t say I was very happy about this. I really like the ambience of the restaurant but the food really let it down. I have visited many times before and both the last two experiences have fallen short sadly.

Varied selection on the menu. Mostly well cooked.
Contrasting ambience. We were seated indoors by the entrance. The garden was much more lively. Would want the garden next time

Lovely setting but a little too close to other diners. Not much room on the table. Service could be slow at times. Great food but afternoon tea was a little expensive once you added a non-alcoholic drink each. Ended up at £40 per person which for what you got was bit steep in my opinion. Wouldn’t have afternoon tea again but happy to have something off the main menu.

Service was very good, but personally I was a bit underwhelmed by the food, although my companions liked theirs more so maybe I just made bad choices. I felt everything I had (salt and pepper squid - nicely cooked, not very salty or peppery; blackened cod - beautifully cooked fish but could have been more tasty, apple tart - actually the best dish), was ok, perfectly adequate, but just not very special or exciting. More seasoning, use of different spices, or ginger or something, would have been good!!

I had felt The Ivy Cobham had become a bit average. However yesterday’s visit was exceptional, great food, a new autumn menu with a few new additions and the sublime ‘chocolate bomb’ but above all it was our server ‘Robert’ who made the visit. I was surprised to hear it was his first week in the job as he had an old school, personable and very professional nature and it was illuminating to be served by someone who clearly enjoyed his job. He was so busy, but made us feel special still. He could teach a few others a thing or two about great service!! Thank you Robert. Keep doing what you are doing and being you!!

Booked a birthday lunch- had requested a table near the garden but was able to be setae outside… which was great but everything else went downhill from there.
Waited an hour for a 1 course meal which when it arrived was just very average- great place with the potential for so much more. Won’t return but have always had great ivy cafe experiences

We booked at this time to have breakfast in IVE but we discovered after settling down that the restaurant had removed the breakfast menu and replaced it with a Brunch menu which is not suitable for that time of the day, we were very upset.

It was lovely but I think the tables were a little too close considering we are still effectively in a pandemic situation. The food was nice and the caramel sticky toffee dessert was divine.

Location and food was perfect . Waiter was aloof , didn’t explain all the menus ( there were a few ) and wine took ages to come . His humour was limited abd made us feel like we were the poor guests. We treated ourselves as it was both our birthday treats and whilst we are not rich , we can afford to treat ourselves but we weren’t made to feel special . This spoilt our experience.

Booked afternoon tea to treat my daughter. The room quietened after larger groups of people left after having lunch.
Attentive service, food good, especially the sandwiches, we took most of the cakes in a box as couldn’t eat them at the time.
Would definitely book again
