    The whole experience was very good. The only concern was the delay of over 1 hour between the starter and main course

    It was my sons graduation. We had a very pleasant dining experience. Service was very good. Food was fine, didn’t blow me away for the price we paid. It’s a nice experience for a special occasion.

    Loved the decor and atmosphere. Was disappointed that salad arrived late for the main meal. We were celebrating with our mother for her 70th and found it very odd that when we asked if a taxi could be called we were refused. We were advised to walk outside and find a cab - for myself not a problem but I didn't like walking my mother out not knowing we had a cab. Strange end to a lovely evening.

    Server ‘forgot about us’, was left waiting there for a while when we asked for more water. Neighbouring tables were served much more quicker. Food was nice enough, tasty but at times a bit too salty. The ambience and decoration of the restaurant was brilliant and beautiful. Dessert was very tasty, chocolate bombe and whiskey creme brulee were very nice.

    Worst dining experience ever. Our server took our drinks food order served us our starter which arrived promptly and varnished for the remainder of our meal. We ordered a glass Sav Blanc when it arrived it was terrible and we questioned this with our server his excuse was they had no Sav Blanc so to save us money gave us the house wine how insulting. My starter was cold when it arrived and could only eat a small portion of it. Our mains monkfish curry not very hot either. Worst insult was the burger which was tasteless, the presentation was most un appetising, basically burger served in a bun with a slice of cheese extra 1.90 on the side a sliver of onion and tomato no dressings the chips were burned to crisp and not eaten. during our entire meal no staff member asked how our meal was. As our server had vanished we tried to order a drink for approx. 20 mins eventually getting the attention of a manager, the young lady clearing our plates made reference to the barely touched hamburger meal and we pointed our the burned chips etc, We asked this young lady for our bill only then nearly 1 hour later did our server appear with our bill. The food drink bill 96.15 their discretionary optional charge of 12.02 total amount 108.17 . This was further insult to injury when we go no service a waiter that decided the cheaper house wine was good enough for us. Worst restaurant experience ever from poor food to condescending attitude from a server. Will not be returning ever or recommending the Ivy Restaurant

    the Ivy is fancy, service is good and the atmosphere is very cool, however I didn't like my food, I ordered eggs benedict and the bread was cold, the ham was cold and was falling everywhere as cut in very small thick pieces, the eggs were ok but I wouldn't recommend it. My coffee (oat milk latte)wasn't good at all, cold with some foam on the top instead of being creamy. My friend ordered pancakes and she was happy enough, I just expected a better experience.

    Everything lovely, except music a bit too loud, we had to raise our voices even though we were only half a meter apart. Asked for it to be turned down a small bit. Waitress asked the DJ who said it was not possible to turn it down. Ridiculous answer as he had the controls in front of him and would put me off returning

    I booked a table here for my Birthday recently. The table had been booked months in advance. The waitress who served us was fantastic and attentive. But the night was ruined by an extremely rude manager who asked us to leave as they needed the table back. My thoughtful friend ordered a birthday plate for me (desert/candle) and I would say the candle wasn’t even blown out before the manager approached the table saying we have 5 minutes to leave. I am aware of restaurants needing to turn over tables, but this was beyond a joke and completely ruined the celebration for everyone involved. Being approached no more than 2 minutes after the plate was placed in front of me, and being told we needed to leave, completely unacceptable service.

    Beautiful space. Great atmosphere It was either too much service or no service at all which is frustrating but everyone friendly. Quite expensive for what you get. Even lighter foods on menu are quite heavy and I love classic French cooking.

    Another super meal from the Ivy! I asked for a main from the breakfast menu which wasn’t appearing on the brunch menu and the waiting staff/chef kindly organized it without any hesitation. The Ivy has fast become my go to for meeting friends and family. At 8 months pregnant it also feels a safe place to go as the staff are really careful about checking Ceres and ID, and tables are very well spaced apart in an airy restaurant. I couldn’t recommend the food and staff more!

    Met with a friend I haven’t seen over COVID. Food was lovely, wine delicious and company even better. The service was fantastic. We asked what the cheese on cheese board was and the server wasn’t quite sure of one which we didn’t mind but she came back a few minutes later with a full description. Above and behind. A fabulous atmosphere and very nicely asked to vacate the table when our time was up. What’s not to like. Have made three more bookings before Christmas.
