The Ivy in the Lanes
Absolutely amazing experience yesterday afternoon. Great service, everyone had a delicious meal, stunning toilets and fun, kitsch interior. Will definitely go again.
Lovely decor, very pleasant staff, although rather slow. Excellent food as usual.
Excellent- would highly recommend this restaurant, very elegant and classy. The service was excellent and so was the food. The milanese chicken was our favourite dish. I most certainly will return.
Very disappointed as I booked a table for 2030, we were told to arrive 15 mins before , we were not seated until 20.55 , not even offered a drink whilst we waited ! We purchased our own drinks on arrival and one of our drinks never arrived we had to ask after 10 mins , food was ok a bit overpriced especially as the food is frozen and not freshly cooked
Gorgeous venue - delicious food, very good staff - will be back
Lovely place,lovely food and great service..Expect to pay for your sides ..but enjoy!!
Absolutely wonderful as always, Michael looked after us as usual he does a great job! Food perfect, I can’t wait to come back soon! Thanks again!
Fabulous food & setting -
Service amazing -staff professional & efficient.
Only slight complaint - should be a handrail to the lavatories on both sides of the walls going down & tables are too close to each other, difficult getting through gaps & this was for a slim lady!
Lovely champagne afternoon tea for my husband's birthday.
Minor gripe - sandwich bread a little dry and not much cream and jam for scones but otherwise near perfect visit.
High tea is reasonable price but entirely a triumph of style over content. Sandwiches too big and very predictable, scones lovely but desserts looked pretty but were dull to eat. Staff nice though. We were put in the rear if the restaurant which was noisy and felt less sumptuous than the front. Not t great
Wonderful food, beautiful surroundings, great service and comfortable seating. We spent 8 hours in The Ivy. The afternoon tea was lovely and the dinner was delicious. Can't wait to return
We visited the ivy for my birthday on Saturday and had lunch. Neither my husband or i had been before and we couldn't fault it. It was absolutely wonderful! Amazing food, outstanding service and gorgeous atmosphere. I was very touched by the little suprise mini birthday cake at the end of our meal. We will deffo be back! Thank you to all the staff at the ivy!
Absolutely beautiful restaurant. The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic. Cant fault anything. Such a joy to have lunch there. Wish I could ever day!
Lovely atmosphere. Staff very helpful and friendly.
A lovely treat , had a lovely time with friends ,
Great food great service .
Enjoyed our evening. The food was delicious and the waiter provided an excellent service. The music was good but a little too loud.
Amazing. Great food with a nice choice across the menu. Reasonable value for the quality of the drinks, but not cheap.. that said, no more than you’d pay on most restaurants and the quality is much higher.
The pork was superb. Highly recommend a visit if you’re looking for good food and a nice place to eat - not your generic type of chain.
We had a pleasant evening and nice food ! , I had a sirloin steak , medium cooked and it was nice, however I had tasted better and in my opinion it was a bit overdone.
Very accommodating staff. Excellent food as always.
We have been to The Ivy a number of times. Every visit has been a great experience with really professional service and a great atmosphere
We had a really lovely meal for a 21st birthday. The waitress was considerate and helpful. Beautiful decor and a great atmosphere
We had a lovely early evening meal however it felt we were very rushed and not even offered a coffee which was disappointing. I am not sure a 2 hour slot so vigorously adhered to makes for a relaxing experience.
Exquisite food, outstanding service. A real treat whilst on holidays.
Very busy at lunchtime
Good table in a corner with comfortable seats
Only disappointment was the thick soggy batter underneath our fish , which was otherwise well cooked
Not as good as the same meal at Ivy Kings Cross
Long way down to toilets if you are elderly
Great experience with good food and great service and a special ambience.Only criticism that the bare wooden table was not properly clean and felt greasy.Table cloths would be a good solution.
From start to finish it was on the whole amazing. We were taken to the table straightaway, no waiting around. The table was good and in a nice position. Seats were very comfortable with lots of cushions for additional comfort if needed.
The menu was a bit difficult to see as the font was quite small and the lighting which was lovely didn't lend itself to being able to see as well as I would have liked but it was manageable.
Noise levels were fairly high but not in an anti social way.
Choices were good and the quality of the food was excellent. All served efficiently.
The portion sizes were good and the prices were fairly expensive but the quality more than made up for the price.
Decor was lovely. The toilet facilities were a joy and everything was clean.
I really really enjoyed the experience.
Lack of conversation from staff, didn’t like one item and wouldn’t return it
chips were disappointing as they were overcooked more like oven chips and spoilt the meal
Everything seems to just work so smoothly and efficiently here, without giving you any sense of being rushed. Just as we found on our previous visit, the menu is excellent; if you can't find something you like to eat here, I'd be amazed. The quality of the food and service is superb, and ambience is stunning!
Always an enjoyable and buzzing place to be, food excellent
Delicious fish and steak. Beautiful venue. Would recommend.
Lovely evening - staff very friendly and helpful!
Good value set menu for lunch but the White House wine is really poor otherwise everything else was excellent.
Wonderful breakfast in a relaxed and beautiful environment. Thank you.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable lunch the waiter was very attentive and when he found out that it was my wife's birthday arranged for a small celebration item to be served.
Service,atmosphere and staff were impeccable as always. Thanks.
Perfect evening with friends, couldn’t fault anything
Lovely atmosphere and vibrant decor. Delicious family meal and excellent friendly service.
It was a treat for my birthday. It was great😀
Another thoroughly enjoyable visit. Breakfast was delicious - Eggs benedict - just perfect.
Warm, smiling welcome from staff.
On pointing out that one of the toilets was not functioning, management dealt with it immediately.
Why can't this level of welcome, service, food and ambience be the norm throughout Brighton?
well done again The Ivy in The Lanes!
