Delicious food, you attend knowing that it’s a slightly higher price point.
Music was surprisingly loud which made it somewhat difficult to socialise - but not enough to spoil our evening!

First time visiting and we had a great evening. The atmosphere was great and the cocktails and food delicious. Wasn’t the cheapest meal but was worth it. Will definitely come again

We have eaten at several of the lvy restaurants, but this was without doubt, the best one by far
Food and service was very good, with a great ambiance. A little noisy, but to be expected when most of the tables are occupied. We would definitely book again, even though the meals are a little expensive.

It was our friends 60th and we all thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meals and the service was excellent. Our table was ready for us before we arrived and we did not feel rushed to leave after our 2hours. Thank you, it was all lovely.

The food was fantastic, I had a three course meal money well spent.

Service from staff fantastic was friendly welcoming. My partner had a ecstatic experience with the dessert meal.

I would definitely recommend to all family and friends to eat at the IVY.

My wife and I had the lemon sole and we both found the fish undercooked and small for £24.
We mentioned this to our server.

My mum loved her birthday afternoon tea - first time in a busy venue for 2 years :-)
Everything was beautifully presented - the savouries weren't very exciting though. Tea was a bit weak (could have used an extra teabag!), coffee was good. We were in slightly quieter area at the back which was appreciated. Very friendly service. Fabulous decor.

A lively, buzzing place even on a weekday lunchtime! I only really wanted two starters for lunch, but they were certainly substantial; in fact, the scallops with bacon (very fine bacon by the way) contained rather too much mashed potato and was a little bit too much for a two-starter lunch. The restaurant is pricey, but good for a special occasion. I sat in the side, quieter area, but even here some of the music was a little intrusive - especially when a cheesey Christmas song was played. Perhaps the Christmas music could be reduced in volume a little? I could not have coped with the noise level in the main area, although visually, this is spectacular. The menu is varied and the quality of food is good; service is friendly and attentive. One other point, regarding a possible improvement: the tables in the quieter area could do with being a bit further apart. All in all, a positive experience

6 of us went for lunch to celebrate my friends birthday,certainly very nice, 3 of us were seated looking at a wall which was a shame as we missed out on seeing the comings and goings and general visual atmosphere. Very nice though.

I first visited the Brighton Ivy on the same date two years ago soon after it opened and it was very quiet with no atmosphere whatever. WOW what a difference two years make. This visit the place was heaving and lively but, despite this we were seated with no delay. The serving staff were very helpful and efficient bringing us food that was top notch.

I am deaf and this visit was a Birthday treat for me and I am more than grateful to everyone at the Brighton Ivy for looking after me in such a friendly and professional way.

Will definitely be back some day.
