    We visited the Ivy Exeter for the first time last night for our 10th wedding anniversary. The deco was stunning, a real wow, we had a lovely seat in a corner with a great view of the restaurant. The food was beautiful, the service was very good, wish I had the waiters name as he deserved mentioning (middle aged gentleman maybe Spanish or Middle Eastern) compared to some of the younger female waitresses, who did not have his energy, same for the floor manager who looked rather blank with no charisma. The prices were certainly higher than we expected, which did limit me to the choices from the menu sadly. However what we did eat was delicious. Negatives to mention - the abundance of plants in pots however a lovely affect, were full of dust; we were sat around the edge in a lovely seat but surrounded by plants head height behind us, I must have touched a leaf and the dust that fell off it was pretty disgusting. These plants possibly adding to the 2/3 fly’s that were noticeable at time also. Perhaps these plants should be cared for more by allocating staff members to clean the leaves and check the soil condition, especially when they are so close to customers. This furthermore leads me to mention the dirt and dust extremely visibly behind the tilted wall speakers which are directly above the customers that are sitting around the edge of the restaurant. My husband particularly noticed the strange choice in music that was played throughout the evening, perhaps a little too lively when a more gentle music would have added to the sophistication of the premises. We did have a lovely meal and experience but feel this won’t be a regular eatery for us.

    1. 5 adults sitting on a small round table no room for side orders etc 2 two people ordered burgers which had to be sent back as the burgers didn’t taste tight told it was the Smokey oil used no mention of Smokey on menu and the taste was not smoked 3 3 of us had finished our meals and plates taken away before the other two had their meals returned 4 something was deducted from the bill but nearly £300 for a bad experience. Not good

    The food was cooked as requested but we didn’t feel the dishes had a wow factor. One dish was the salmon fillet, nice buttery sauce in a dish but plain strip of salmon on firm broccoli stems. Potatoes ordered as a side as not included. £23.95 a lot for salmon broccoli and sauce!

    Had the set menu which was excellent. Ham Hock followed by chicken salad, very fresh. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. A lovely experience as always.

    First time at The Ivy , last minute booking and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The meal exceeded our expectations and we felt it was a very reasonable price. Thank you-to all the friendly staff.

    Afternoon tea disappointing for the price, more dessert than savoury. Bread was very cold so hard. Cakes a little stale. Tea lovely but a dirty cup. Noisy work outside not in their control. Helpful with birthday celebration and not rushed. I prefer breakfast menu for next time.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at The Ivy Exeter. They made us feel so welcome. The food was exquisite, and the cocktails were yummy (and strong!) and we left feeling merry! Just the ticket for a mother-daughter day! 🥳🙌🏼 thank you for making our visit special! We will be coming again! ❤️ x

    Really enjoyed the ambiance and generally the food was very good and excellent value. However, we did have an issue with the asparagus in the fish main. There were no asparagus tips and the sliced stalks were very thick, woody and inedible. When we made this observation to the waitress we were relayed back a message from the manager that they were supposed to be ‘al denté’ ! I found this condescending and ignorant. Really soured our experience!

    Really enjoyed the meal and service was excellent and friendly. Feel you can get better value elsewhere however. The price didn’t really reflect what we got.
