Quirky, colourful and lively. Very popular and large restaurant. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Portion sizes could be bigger.

Food and service were outstanding, waiter very friendly and efficient. Only complaint is the music was too loud and we couldn't talk properly. Music was good but could have been on a lower volume.

Everything was perfect, however we felt the music was too loud but I do realise this is down to personnal taste. Nice to have background music but it was a bit of a struggle to hear anyone speak.

We had a lovely evening at the Ivy celebrating our wedding anniversary. The service was friendly and personal, the ambience was excellent with some good tunes being played by the DJ and the food was lovely. The only negative was that the men's toilets were closed.

The service was perfect. The Argentinian guy was so friendly and recommended really good food. The atmosphere was lovely. The music was just a bit too loud to have a nice conversation at the table. If the music wasnt so loud we would have stayed longer. Overall everybody was very friendly and the food is perfect! Would love to come back!

Salt pepper squid coating under cooked
Muffin over toasted burnt
Ladies toilets require more staff visits in busy times sink sides wet

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!

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.
