    Average food. Good service and atmosphere though. Good for a birthday celebration. I forgot my bag and was very impressed that the staff ran out after me with it - thank you!

    Great food, loved the decor, service was swift but a little bit overbearing, prices were too high. €25 for a Pasta dish at lunchtime with 2 dessertspoons of crabmeat plopped on top is too high, even if it tasted great

    No Ribeye, No Fillet hate when given menus this isn’t explained before you start looking and picking. Staff were terrific. I ordered Sirloin was chewy and overcooked. Given complimentary dessert which was nice touch. Would go back better cooking and kitchen management needed

    Food quality was flawless but service was slow and overall the cost was €150 for 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides, 1 desert and 1 cocktail and 1 bottle of wine which is on the high side. Overall very good experience

    Took my in laws out for a birthday meal. The food and service were great throughout. It was also so nice to see some life back into the hospitality industry. Big thanks to our server Ivy (aptly named) who was a delight. Sat here on a cold Monday morning dreaming of my chocolate bomb dessert.

    Food very expensive and not good. We were being rushed from table after an hour and a half. Service was shocking, waiter verging on rude in his efforts to get us in and out as quickly as possible. Will definitely be returning to the Ivy nor recommending it to anyone.
