    Steak was returned as rare rather than medium. However 2nd helping was excellent but obviously took a little time. My colleagues chips were gone at this point so I suppose for feedback it might be good to also serve another bowl of chips

    We were not sure if we wanted to have full meal and they didn't allow us to get a table (although I had a reservation). I had to sit my 70th mom at the bar and we ende up leaving after having one drink and grabing starters. When we were leaving the waitress and her colleague were wispering about us (I know because I heard) and that made me feel very uncomfortable. I love this place, have been there several time but it was very disappoint to have been trhough that. We were celebration The Mother's day (in my home country) and it was the first time I brough my mom to The Ivy. She obviously hated the experience. Ps: Brazillian staff at the bar were extremely nice to us - they deserve a shout out! But the waitress with the very curly hair and pretty smile didn't serve at all. She could have been a little more considerate with a 70 years old woman.

    Special of the day was tasty but almost starter size. Did not compare with regular menu. I enjoyed it but was disappointed,the tortellini was small and dry! This is what let the dish down. The salmon though small was delicious and perfectly cooked. The accompanying veg were fresh and tasty.

    We enjoyed lunch here, waiting staff efficient and pleasant. Bread was delicious. It was very noisy as the place was busy, a good atmosphere but at times difficult to hear staff or each other. The only negative was the lack of a greeting or welcome on arrival, the member of staff at the reception just looked blankly at us, unsmiling. Not the best start, but the other staff were friendly and attentive.

    We celebrated our son’s 21st Bday on a busy Friday night. The restaurant was bustling and the ambience was superb. Our server Ivy, was excellent - completely switched on. Prompt service and topping up of drinks. The meal was very good. Beside us sat a lone diner who was welcomed back by the staff who were very attentive to him - we thought this was a nice touch when one is dining alone. Our evening was topped off with a bday dessert for our son. A great restaurant for a special occasion or for visitors.

    We ordered the zucchini tempura for started and found it to be a little greasy. We ordered the Chicken Milanese for our main and unfortunately it was tough. The brocolli and side chips were lovely. The chocolate bomb desert was delicious.

    The Ivy is a beautiful venue, food and service is generally very good. I do think €10 for a glass of house white is expensive. The tables for 2 are far too close, you can literally hear next table's conversation. That could improve. Otherwise a very pleasant experience.

    The woman in the yellow floral jacket who “welcomed” us at the door was rude and dismissive. Other than that we had a wonderful time although the tables are so close together we could hear every word the next table said. Our waiter was excellent and the food delicious.

    Incredibly noisy restaurant with a sever of whom is rude when you are not able to hear. Add in the fact she was rude to a member of our party who is hard of hearing and we left before mains. Waitress tried to charge us full. One redeeming factor was a very kind gentleman who insisted we only pay for our drinks/starters due to the service we received.

    Our waiter was terrible, he dropped chips all over the table, literally threw the food on the table, we felt like Julia Roberts in “pretty woman” he treated us like he was so much above us. I have no idea why, I work in the service industry, and would never have an attitude like him. It’s probably about my 8th or 9th visit to the Dublin Ivy. Feel like not going back plenty of good restaurants in Dublin, that you always get fantastic food and service. Plus he charges us for the extra chips that he dropped ( it was taken off the bill tho, after we pointed it out) 🤣

    The Ivy restaurant was beautiful, the service was really good, very kind staff, and the food was delicious, and was a nice touch with the birthday desert to get a card from the Ivy wishing happy birthday, and overall was excellent, and definitely will be back for a another trip to the Ivy.

    Very loud and noisy, 3 of us put at a very tight table really only suited for 2 people. Server introduced himself but he was not very attentive and we had to ask twice on 2 occassions querying where our order was.....
