    Food was very nice. Service was very disappointing. Waiter had a terrible attitude towards our table, and was complete distracted. Spilt a full glass of wine onto our table, destroying one of our parties outfits, and into two of our handbags (mine was a cream linen bag, permanently destroyed). No apology, absolutely none.

    Very friendly and helpful staff! Nothing was a problem. Broccoli was undercooked. Had to ask for a steak knife. Wasn't Al dente. Sorted out quickly. Fish was very tasty but over-cooked, crumbled. Hard to pick up the pieces. The white chocolate cheescake was amazing! So memorable. Accompanied by a zesty mango sorbet. It was exquisite!! Will definitely be back...because of the amazing service.

    Very nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion . Food excellent , service very good . The monkfish curry was a hit at our table (best curry ever). The chocolate bombe dessert is a must. Nice selection of cocktails for the people who don’t drink wine. The service is very good( one little hiccup, but nothing major).Overall a great experience and I cannot wait to visit again.

    Very disappointing Poor value. Was given a glass with a lipstick smudge . Waiter rude we were - asked to leave the table when we were still finishing our drinks. This happened twice. We were not told that the seat had to be vacated at a certain time when we made the reservation. Would not recommend. Will not return.

    Food was dreadful. I had the hamburger & it was nothing special - bang average with pickle and fries etc and the meat was really dry & overdone. My friend had the chocolate bomb which turned to mush when the sauce was poured. Wildly overpriced for a very average meal in an overcrowded restaurant with all the tables squashed together. Only high points were the staff (lovely) and the decor.

    Ambience of the Ivy is excellent. I was in Richmond London last week and ate there 3 times in one day for different meetings! I was allowed the excellent duck salad at the bar in London, but refused in Dublin to eat at the bar? Our Dublin Ivy can be a bit more flexible perhaps? Attention behind the bar, maybe in need of a few more attentive Bar men: the attention seems to go on serving the tables not the people at the bar? All in all a good experience at the IVY

    Sunny afternoon and as sitting beside the window it got extremely warm. Blinds needed for peak summer to shade customers from the sun. Also we wanted a relaxing late lunch but a person in the group beside us was unbearably loud !! Staff attentive , good service & food very good.

    We were directed to bar on arrival at approx 7.15pm which was our booking time. It was difficult to hear instructions and to know what the procedure was. We figured things out and ordered a drink. When taken to table, service and food were very good indeed. It was all worth waiting for, although a bit noisy for seniors like ourselves.

    Our waiter Daniel was really good - however drink orders were slow and then when we did receive our drinks we we’re rudely asked to leave the table as they had other customers waiting! This could have been handled in much better way! Letting us know we had 1 hour left or 30 mins so we knew! Lady who spoke to us was really unfriendly and rude! Won’t be going back!

    Having eaten in The London Ivy I expected more. Lovely restaurant,lively crowd (for lunch on a Wednesday) excellent bar but let down by the most important thing;the food. Having had a tasty but very small smoked salmon starter (with literally a teaspoon of crab meat at an extra price) I went with the signature shepherds pie that was ridiculously small and not even that special in flavour. We were disappointed, not with the price (which we expected to be high and was) ,but we left unsated. Well back to the Westbury or Shelbourne until we hear of extensive improvements.

    We had a few drinks at the bar prior to our dinner as we were there earlier... Guinness wasn't as cold however the raspberry mojito was lovely. Staff are really nice and helpful... Food was tasty however the side was very salty. We got a complimentary little cake for a birthday celebration with I thought was a really nice gesture. The chocolate bomb is very sweet! There is a service charge. We were charged different prices for the same white wine we got...
