The Ivy Dining Counter
Great lunch friends meeting up
Being sat at the bar was ok, the barmen were great, friendly and good service. Food was lovely as usual.
Did not enjoy my chair getting bashed into every time somebody walked past, and hearing the wait staffs chatter behind us over our own conversation.
I’ve been before and always been seated at a table and loved it, was a shame on my anniversary this wasn’t the case as soured the evening slightly for me.
The food was very good, the dishes were not very large, but you can be satisfied with a first and a main course assuming you also eat their excellent bread.
Very good service.
Trendy as expected but overall very enjoyable! Always a classic night out!
All terrific cept for fatty, grisly veal chop. Richard awesome bartender server
The original Ivy always delivers. Great services and ambience. I just wish the other Ivy outlets were as good in terms of food choice and quality.
Love the Ivy! One of the best spots in London for a nice dinner
Excellent service and food. It’s not cheap , but this is London !
My husbands curry was not good.
He was compensated and the item was taken off the menu he was also given a free sweet, but this was our anniversary and ruined the evening.
Always a pleasure this restaurant. Consistently fantastic quality.
Awesome food, awesome service, awesome company
Great place, very good food, happy vibe. Enjoyed very much
I wanted to really like this place, but the food was just so so. The ambiance was great, the drinks were great, the service was great, the presentation was great, but the food could have been better. I had the scallops that were sadly nothing special. They were slightly fishy, slightly over cooked with no consistency, and beyond the fishy taste; they were pretty bland. The risotto that came with the dish was okay, but again, not the best.
However, if your looking for great drinks and great service, I would say this is the place!
Amazing food, amazing service, delicious cocktails - perfect evening
had a lovely first time visit to The Ivy .food and staff were amazing.
Awesome as always. The team here just know how to do it.
Lovely informal way to enjoy The Ivy experience. Really did enjoy ourselves
It was pouring rain, my husband and I were wearing soaking raincoats and dripping hats. The doormen and front desk staff greeted us as if we were elegantly attired and alighted from a limo. We were seated at the elegant bar and were professionally served a delicious meal at what we consider to be a very reasonable price. A lovely experience.
Am pleased to have been introduced to The Ivy. Food great and service + ambiance. Cosy. Think counter service only works well when two people.
Excellent service and fantastic food as always. Would highly recommend.
The Ivy is always a great place to have dinner! I love it
Attentive staff, excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. It was also good to go to somewhere like this and be able to eat/drink at a relaxed pace and not to feel ‘rushed’ in any way. Would highly recommend a visit to the Ivy.
We sat at the bar as per the Dining Table booking, staff were friendly but not over bearing. Very relaxed atmosphere, great food and nice to be sat amongst things at the bar. Exceeded our expectations!
We spent a week in London and this was by far our favorite dinning experience. You must sit at the bar to take it all in.
Special night out for son celebrating his qualification
The waiter was rude and he got our order wrong
Thanks again for a New visit at The Ivy - mat be the 10th during last 20 years - this time in combination with Our 48- years of marriage upon we receive very staisfying attention from the staff!
We will certainly come back to you.

Superbly renovated since my last visit 20 yrs ago, this is unpretentious 5 star dining at its best. Lighting, service, menu and wine list, all combining to produce the perfect ambiance.
Accidentally booked the dining counter and was worried I wouldn’t like it as much as a table for two but absolutely loved it and would definitely eat like that again! Gorgeous setting, great food and really lovely staff. Fantastic 1st anniversary dinner <3
Open table you were the cause of this disaster of an evening The Ivy said they didn't have my booking and sat us at the bar ☹️ the front of house was very poor. This was for my wife's birthday, this was very poor unlike the Ivy Manchester
Took my partner there for her birthday and it was fantastic - quick and attentive service, great menu, fine food and a lively atmosphere but still chilled enough to be able to speak and hear. Decor and ambience was fantastic and the quality of the cuisine was top class
Good quick and high quality.
Little dated in the healthier options on the menu,
Overall a good experience overall...
Exemplary service and dining.
The place lives up to it’s wonderful tradition and chef Gary lee and his team work the magical menu.
I recommend this to anyone who loves to indulge in good food and hospitality.
Great! Beautiful Bar and restaurant! Great service at the bar dining!
I mean , it’s ok? Fancy people, fancy menu, fancy prices. Good if you don’t want to research any other place. Close to the theatres but there are plenty of options. Nasty dirty street and rough looking street. Don’t need to go again. Try once and see :)
What an absolute pleasure to return to such a legendary atmosphere, The Ivy, and enjoy an exquisitely delicious meal, so impeccably prepared and so attentively served!! The chorizo salad, the veal with foie gras, and the steak were delicious, as were the wine and the cheesecake for dessert!! Soar High, Fly Far, See Deeply!!
An exquisite dining experience. The ivy is both posh and charming. Impeccable service only to be outshone by the cuisine . We will most definitely return on each trip to London. Cheers.
From the moment we arrived the service, food, attention to detail, excellence of the highest standard
We actually started at the dining counter for drinks and nuts which was lovely and I would recommend this if there are two of you- however as there were three we moved on to a table to eat.
I had the burger with Welsh rarebit which was tasty but not as great as it should have been for the price and the chips/fries were like cardboard!
The service was mixed- a couple of the staff were great but then a couple weren’t- they didn’t smile, forgot to bring us a couple of things so we had to ask twice. This I don’t usually mind but when you are paying these prices you expect impeccable service.
There is also a cover charge automatically added to the bill! When I asked what it was for he said to cover bread, tablecloth etc. Now I don’t mind paying for bread and butter but not when it is brought to you automatically without asking for it! Also we didn’t spill anything on the table cloth but our waiter did!
Altogether pretty disappointing when we were expecting a really upmarket experience.
Excellent pre-theater dining spot
