Lovely food, attentive staff. 10% service charge added on which I wasnt aware of, quite noisy inside. Lots of choice on menu, would go again.

Lovely place for a treat. Staff are very friendly yet not too in your space. There are some more wallet friendly options which means most people could give it a go.

It was an excellent venue to celebrate 2 birthdays, and it was a pleasant surprise to be given a small cake in recognition of them, at the end of the meal.

All members of our party thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere, stylish surroundings, fabulous food & drink we experienced during our visit. Nothing was too much trouble & the staff made us feel so welcome. Every dish was delicious & served in a timely manner. The restaurant was busy but there was no feeling of being rushed. It was my parents’ first visit & they were blown away by their experience. We can’t wait to visit again soon.

Whilst the food was good the service was poor. We had to wait for almost half an hour at the table before our order was even taken. The pouring of our wine was incredibly slow and we were often without a drink. The tables were too close together so the next door table was often listening to our conversation.

This was our first visit to The Ivy and would certainly return. The menu was good and varied and the food was of a good quality and simply cooked. We did feel that generally the wine was over-priced.

The venue is gorgeous, but the food was average and not worth the price (we went for breakfast and you can get great breakfasts for under a tenner each - for two breakfasts and two coffees we paid £35).

We strolled over to The Ivy on a lovely warm sunny morning and we were greeted by a happy and smiley lady who checked our booking and showed us to our table,we were soon asked if we would like some water for the table and ordered our coffee which arrived quickly,after reading the menu we ordered two full english breakfasts with our choice of poached eggs and granary toast,this arrived in a very short time and we both enjoyed it very much,all in all good service good food nice ambiance and a lovely place ,thank you.

Staff very friendly and efficient. Prices a little expensive for example water at £3.50. I don't like being told what tip I have to leave and this was expensive at The Ivy at 12.5% of the total bill. Food was very nice and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

50th birthday. The food was wonderful but sadly the service was a bit slapdash, items were forgotten and brought to the table too late, I put this down to them being busy. That said the staff were friendly and doing their best. We just waited too long for our main and the sides all came out one by one, wine order forgotten. It won’t put us off but just lessened the experience that time.

Nice welcome and very smooth, efficient service. Air conditioning altered quickly upon request. Correct food served to each guest without asking who was having what. Tiny complaint would be that I'm not very keen on being referred to as 'love' by the bar staff. Will certainly go back. Thank you for a lovely evening.

I visited the Ivy, Harrogate once before with my mother and we had a wonderful lunch. I suggested my work colleague and I should book for dinner as we were attending a conference in Harrogate.
The lady who served us didn’t come across as genuine. She gave us the main menu and when we asked for the set menu her attitude changed. She came back with the menu and said “you’re lucky that you're just in time”, even though we were seated at 6pm and the set menu finished at 6.30pm. I don’t like being made to feel less worthy because my colleague and I decided to dine from the set menu. The level of customer service should be the same for every customer, despite what menu you select and how much you spend. I would recommend The Ivy but not the Harrogate branch.
