Pretty average. Nice ambience. Was looking forward to going wouldn’t rush back. Be warned if you have gift vouchers they take time to scan at then end and they make you wait around like you’ve forged them until it’s done!
Everyone should try The Ivy at least once.
The decor is perfect, not too much.
The service was excellent, not in your face or asking how every course was.
The food was stunning. The tempura prawns and squid starter and fillet steak main.
The drinks are a tad pricey.
They want to consider removing the optional 12.5% service charge is taken off the bill.
I found it a bit distasteful to tell me how much I should be tipping. I'm sure some people will leave it on and pay it because they don't want to feel embarrassed by not paying it.
I did tip but tipped what I thought was right.
Definitely go back.
Excellent staff friendly and made our experience one which we Woolf like to do again
Food was not nearly the standard we expected for the price and the reputation of The Ivy. When my Wife was asked about her main course and said she was not happy the response was “I will let the kitchen know”. Not good enough. Food overall was nicely presented but very poor flavours and portion sizes are a joke.
Amazing food, really knowledgeable waiting staff, very happy with the service!! Will definitely return.
Excellent on all levels staff, food, cleanliness quality of surroundings, ambience, pleasure to go.
Gorgeous food & cocktails
Service very attentive & polite
We had an amazing time for our 25th wedding anniversary
Service and food excellent as usual. We are regulars here and always enjoy the experience. Word of warning to those who have never been before or to those regulars who just pay. When the bill comes there is an additional service charge added. The service staff see a minimal amount of this therefore you are not tipping your waiter or waitress direct for their service. You can elect to not pay the service charge and tip the waitress/waiter direct with hard cash instead. Personal choice but the service is excellent here and worthy of a decent individual tip.
Great location, lovely food, service very good. Nice atmosphere.
A very nice meal again at The Ivy, although we struggle to read the menu in low light conditions and we weren't the only ones.
Its nice as a treat, but because we find it pricey it not going to be a regular visit
I would due to the food been delicious however I just could not wait to leave as it was far to hot
Great service also great food would defo recommend a visit
Having been to the Ivy in Harrogate several times previously we were extremely disappointed on this occasion for which we were celebrating my wife's birthday with 2 close friends. In particular the service was extremely poor - I had to ask twice for a drink i had ordered from the bar, our champagne wasn't topped up which we had to do ourselves by walking across the room to fetch out of the ice bucket, our main course took nearly an hour to arrive and we had to ask for water 3 times before someone came with it. We always tip but on this occasion we amended the default amount to a lower figure. When we politely advise the waiter that we were disappointed with the service and therefore would not be giving a full tip his response was 'no problem' and quickly walked away - he didn't ask us why we weren't happy which should have been his response. Clearly The Ivy need to review basic service skills of their staff. We have another table booked for the 2nd March with 4 friends which we will be cancelling.
Our favourite restaurant in Harrogate the atmosphere is always lively and the food is good too
Great service and food, would certainly go back again
We took our daughter for brunch for her 16th birthday and it was a great treat. They adapted the pancake fruit and sauce for her and everything was delicious. A beautiful place and very friendly, helpful staff. Thank you !
Very friendly staff and excellent food. Service was good. We will be returning again on Friday
A great place for brunch that is high quality and good value.
Second time I have had Rib eye steak and it has been not great and overly fatty. Service and ambiance was good.
Great food - Great atmosphere - great company = 5*
We visited on the 15th of Feb on a busy Friday night. The food was excellent and the service first class. It was a little noisy but it was extremely busy so this is understandable. Despite the business the food came promptly and the service never dipped below excellent. Highly recommended.
Very good service and food in this impressive restaurant.
Wish we hadn’t been placed on table 34 though, as this was essentially a table inbetween all the other tables: an afterthought due to overbooking no doubt. Eating our dinner in the walkway did not make this the amazing experience it could have been.
Be advised: when booking, ensure you don’t get table 34.
Another great addition to Harrogate’s restaurant scene. A class act, went for lunch with friends and will definitely be back for diner.
Just an amazing dining experience all round. On walking in we were met by elegantly dressed attentive staff. The decor is beautiful and elegant. The menu choice is ample and would definitely recommend the Ivy Shepherds Pie and the Fish and chips. We have visited the one in York and now plan to visit Ivy Leeds.
Consistantly good, never had a bad meal, service excellent. The lighting levels are sometimes quite dim making reading the menu difficult, but that's a minor point.
Cheerful welcome and table service . Nicely cooked and presented dishes. A most pleasant evening.
Been going to this branch since it It
Opened over a year ago. After a brilliant start is began to fall off in quality and service
But it’s now back on form. One of my favourites as the was original Ivy its late 1980s/early 90s hay day in Covent Garden. Must say the original was amazing and the branches dont come anywhere near the original.
A most enjoyable Valentine's Day lunch with delicious food and attentive staff, plus a thoughtful gift of a wrapped flower. A very pleasant experience.
Amazing loved our evening here ! Thank you ivy Harrogate
The blackened cod ....super!
The food was not up to the standard we were expecting, my wife's steak and kidney pudding, was which was recommended as the "special", was hard and my fillet steak was not as good as others I have had elsewhere for less cost.
From the moment we arrived everything was very special. We were celebrating our silver wedding 25 years and couldnt have selected a better venue. The service was outstanding, very polite and friendly. Ordered our food and within 15 minutes it was on the table EXCELLENT.
Lovely atmosphere will definitely be back and will be recommending to friends.
We had a lovely meal at The Ivy, the restaurant is beautifully decorated. The food was lovely, and everyone enjoyed what they ordered.
The gentleman serving was very attentive, which was great, as on the previous 2 visits I found a different service to be quite slow, and the server wasn't very friendly or attentive.
The only thing that puts me off giving 5 stars, is that we had made a note and requested a good table, as we had business guests. When we arrived the restaurant was quiet, but they sat us right next to another table, at the side of the room. I asked if we could possibly sit at the nice table just 2 tables away, but was told that unfortunately we couldn't, but we could have the one next to the original. We took this one, but it was such a shame, as the nice table just sat there empty.
The only other issue was the lighting, unfortunately it was so dark that it was hard to read the menu. Our guests had to use their phone torches :-(
Very welcoming. A lovely way to spend a Sunday evening. So relaxing and gorgeous food.
Can’t wayto go back.
My crab starter wasn't very tasty, the water melon it sat on was too cold and overpowered the overall taste.
In addition to this I asked the waiter for a bottle of Merlot wine noting one on the wine list was £28. I was dissapointed to find when my bill arrived he had chosen one at £48, there was no discussion on whether I wanted to pay that amount.
I enjoyed the experience at The Ivy, Harrogate but doubt I will put myself in that position again.
Waiter was awful. Everything else was average. Disappointed as we’ve been to Richmond Ivy and it was fantastic.
Lovely evening. The service and food was great. Will certainly go back.
We were a party of 7 and had a great experience. Service was outstanding, drinks were great and our food was delicious. We will definitely return, thanks to the team for taking great care of us.
We went for an early dinner - 5.50 booking - beware though they needed the table back
back by 8 which we were not told until 10 to 8! The atmosphere, food and service (although our waiter who was delightful, needed smartening up a bit!!). were brilliant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would go again.
Great food, drinks and a good atmosphere... looking forward to my next visit already!
Would have been an excellent lunch had the tables not been so close together. We had a table for two on the right hand side of the restaurant, getting in and out you disturbed the neighbouring tables. You could hear the whole of their conversations and at one point the lady to our right joined in our conversation. I do appreciate you need bums on seats but one less table on that side would have led to a perfect lunch.
