Food was good and atmosphere was ok. Value for money just ok. I hope the waiters get to keep the full service charge as she was very good ad polite.

We visited the Ivy last Thursday to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Everything was very nice and the girls who looked after our table was lovely. We love the chocolate bombs but wish all 3 sauces were equally hot (one chocolate ball didn’t melt). Overall we had a very nice evening. Thanks

We had the two course meal. Soup starter and salmon starter was amazing. Steak main meal was a bit tough and the chicken breast was a bit dry. It was still a great meal at an amazing restaurant with beautiful decor

I love the atmosphere and the decor at the Ivy and accept that on a Monday evening during a pandemic the atmosphere would be very subdued and quiet. All well except our waitress was very indifferent, disinterested and distracted.

I really hope you survive the crisis in your industry and look forward to visiting again soon.

Extensive menu but expensive for what it is. 3 of us had the fillet steak and paid extra for chips and sauce as per menu , and it was average at best, no trimmings, frozen chips and no effort with presentation.
The meal was booked to celebrate a 40th birthday and despite messaging in plenty of time to order the birthday cake which you could provide for 24euros when it was served it was frozen or stale but rock hard and inedible. Was sent back and an apology given but perhaps an offer of a complimentary dessert or drink would have been fitting, seeing as it spoilt the celebratory meal which we had tried so hard to organise to be special.
I wouldn't recommend and I would not return again.

The restaurant decor itself is beautiful. Unfortunately the food does not live up to the same standard. The food is good, just not inine with the cost or venue. Service was the major issue. Staff were well trained an attentive but everything was very rushed. You literally just put down your utensils when your plate was whipped away and less than five minutes later the next dish was there. This type of service comes from management and really takes away from the enjoyment of eating out. It is as if they are trying to push you along and out as quickly as possible.

The vegetarian menu is really good - healthy but moreish, and decent portions with gorgeous breads and sides. The decor is ornate but the restaurant itself is casual, very comfortable and relaxing. It's not cheap, and there is a service charge no matter how many of you there are. The staff, from the people at the front desk to the waiting staff, were absolutely lovely. Even though we had the vegetarian options we were still asked if there were any specific things we could not eat, which was a lovely touch.

Birthday lunch with friends, the ivy is very consistent, food, service and atmosphere lovely as always. My only critique would be that the menu has been the same probably since it opened. They do have specials but would be nice to see the menu changed up a bit.

I was very unimpressed with the 12.5% service charge for my table of 3 people who only ordered a main course each and 3 drinks each!

We were in the restaurant approx. 1 hour and 45 minutes due to the current circumstances, therefore I feel the service charge was beyond steep!

Food was tasty albeit over priced, chips portion was shocking.... 7 in total or something?

Would not return nor would I recommend, very disappointed.... mainly due to the extortionate service charge, appalling...

the chocolate bombe stole the show! 😍 there needs to be more of a variety in the cocktail menu and the chicken was very bland more seasoning is need not just black pepper and salt 💁🏾‍♀️ it was the food for me that was a let down everything else was fine
