A lovely Sunday morning treat for all the family. Great food and very attentive service. The pancakes were a real hit with my children. I would recommend breakfast to everyone.

Overall everything was good. The duck salad was very tasty but we sadly didn't receive the truffle and parmesan chips we ordered. Instead we got got 2 portions of ordinary chips, which were fine and we weren't charged for them.
The room was hot but then, so was outside.

Disappointed that the afternoon tea wasn’t available as planned this as a surprise for my friends 50th Birthday treat. Had a meal instead which was nice. Pudding was the best part-chocolate bomb.

Had a lovely time, unfortunately being one of the hottest days of the year it was stifling hot in the Ivy and it was incredibly noisy, however the food was lovely and the staff were great. Surprised not to see masks or shields on the staff as they have with other restaurants.
There is also no signage or instructions as to social distancing etc

Went for birthday brunch on a Saturday. Excellent choice of food, great value and huge portions! Cocktails were divine and staff and service was top class. Will definitely go again to try other menus out. Felt safe and clean with all covid-19 precautions in place.

So good to be back at the Ivy again and also delighted that whilst all the necessary social distancing and sanitation measures were in place, the service, food and ambiance were unaffected. In fact, the new normal was better than ever! We went on a balmy August night and after our meal were able to sit outside on newly erected chairs & tables for a post dinner cocktail - lush!

Great atmosphere. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff offering a wide choice of menu to suit all tastes. It is always a pleasure to visit this excellent restaurant. The restaurant is conveniently situated in Brighton adjacent to the Lanes. A wonderful gastronic experience living long in the memory.

As per usual we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Ivy, special thank you for "mini birthday cake". The attention to detail was excellent amid these troubling times it was a tonic to get back to some normality!
Thank you to all your staff.

Iv been to the ivy in Brighton a few times in the past. But I must admit this time the standard has really dropped.
Extremely overpriced for the service and standard of food/menu.
I would have paid the same price for a Michelin star restaurant in Brighton.
I would say the standard and service was the same as “Bills” chain restaurant. But they are half the price!

Not happy and may not visit the ivy chain restaurant again.
