Have visited a number of Ivy Brasseries and have always been extremely delighted. The one in the Lanes in Brighton certainly lived up to expectations. Everything was exceptional especially the service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend and return.

The Ivy is always a fun place to meet up with friends and share some laughs in a beautiful atmosphere but the quality of the food has definitely diminished over the past couple of years and service is okay but not outstanding. If you are a foodie, there are much, much better restaurants, but if you’ve got disposable income and are looking for a fun place with great drinks, beautiful decor and decent food…the Ivy is for you.

Sadly, although the service remains excellent, the food at the Ivy Brasserie has continued to decline in quality. The steak was a poor quality cut, chewy with a lot of tendons, the chips for another meal arrived cold and the overall flavours of the other two mains (both chicken) left a lot to be desired. Our starters were nice enough, but did not warrant the price. The drinks and the service were excellent as always. It’s a shame as the Ivy should be providing better quality meals than this, yet is being outclassed by rivals such as Cotê in everything other than decor and service. Until better quality ingredients and more inventive main dishes are offered, The Ivy offers no more than any other gastro-chain (other than more money to pay at the end of the meal). If you want a good, well priced but high quality meal in Brighton/Hove, try any of the Gingerman restaurants instead.

Always excellent food and service. Asked to be moved to a better table and it happened immediately. Service was excellent. The only downside was the very loud music. It was audible outside and meant a lot of shouting between us during the meal. Totally unnecessary and a big downer.

We were disappointed with the afternoon tea, some sandwiches were dry, we think they were pretty made. We were offered more but didn't like fillings. Made a mistake of not asking for tap water, water was £5 a bottle. I phoned ahead to explain my mum is disabled but was told how many steep steps my had to climb. Staff were very attentive and helpful

Lunching at the Ivy is a full-on experience. The service is courteous. The portions are quite generous for the high standard of cuisine.

We were greeted by a concierge but then made to wait outside until a waiter came … but then there were 3 staff taking coats doing nothing (at the time we were there). I didn’t understand why they didn’t greet, then do cloak room then table to speed up queue. The only other thing I thought was strange was that none of the staff were wearing masks.

The service was amazing but the food was not very good. I ordered fish and it was under cooked and swimming in a tasteless butter. The waiting staff rectified it immediately and the course I choose came v quickly.

Funky decor, though music perhaps a little loud. A great menu with good choices for veggies and vegans. Everything we had was good. Our server was really excellent and made us feel she really cared - attentive without being overbearing. Great place for lunch - felt like a treat but prices reasonable. Even though they were busy, we didn’t feel rushed and service was prompt.
