The Ivy in the Lanes
Very lovely evening, service was excellent, the waiters were very friendly and the food was lovely. My boyfriend and I were given a free dessert for our anniversary. The vegetarian/vegan menu was a little limited although the food I did order was all lovely.
Fab night out , great table for 5 and food was amazing. The music was a little loud to ensure we could have good conversation across the group… but food and service amazing
Table booked inside thankfully and so beautiful. Outside not so nice in Brighton as tables are in middle of street and pedestrians walking right past. Food outstanding. Toilets are incredible!
As usual the food and service were excellent. However the background music had a very heavy bass which after a while became quite intrusive
We sat outside, when going inside and using the toilet was noisy but lively and happy. Love it here!
Outside, blankets and fire on.
My 3rd visit here and I always love it such a lovely atmosphere staff are fantastic and food was delicious thank you!
Excellent service and delicious food. Day was cloudy so we asked to be moved from outdoors to indoors. Despite them being fully booked the host did all she could for us to finally be able to be inside.
This was our first visit and we will certainly be back!The service,food and atmosphere were all excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Thank you all so much.
Food was fantastic....
Outdoor dining location wasn't any thing special, just seats on pavement.could have been outside Costa, coffee.
But food and service were fantastic.
Inside was lovely, and bar area fantastic.
But servive at bar was slow.
Welcome back! First meal out for us for sometime and we chose The Ivy as it was the last before the Christmas lockdown. It did not disappoint. Excellent service, as always, from the Ivy in The Lanes. Superb welcome, nice vibe on a Saturday lunchtime, so good to see everyone out and having a good time. Food and drnks excellent and although we were due to give the table back within a time frame, we were not rushed ir hurried in any way. We will be back.
Lovely meal for two at the Ivy. The decoration, as expected, is stunning. It's very loud but I did love the addition of the live band. The food really is outstanding and I always appreciate the separate vegetarian/vegan menu. I recommend the Flower Power summer cocktail!
We had a wonderful lunch for my 70th, deferred from November! We loved drinking cocktails at the bar to start and the staff were so sweet. We had a booth table and enjoyed the colour and glamour of the occasion, like stepping into another world. Lost one star for food because my pea risotto was not good but everything else was excellent, we all enjoyed the bread, mains and puddings and champagne. The staff all helped to make it memorable. Thank you, Anne.
Ivy is nothing if not consistent.
Main disappointment was inability to hear band due to noise of other diners
Great service, great food and definitely not fit the hard of hearing, the music was night club levels!
Always a great evening out, great food, lovely staff
The place and food was lovely but had to send my cocktail back, was dreadful and didn’t drink the replacement either. Sat with an air vent blowing out full pelt from behind our bench seat. Was freezing!
Beautiful restaurant, service second to none!
Food absolutely fantastic. Only bug bare was my husband’s steak was not cooked as he requested but apart from that whole experience was perfect
Lovely food and amazing service. Would definitely return!
Staff very welcoming and helpful.
Food very nice and service was quick.
Bit noisy but a Friday evening and restaurant was full.
Overall a great meal in a good restaurant
Really lovely restaurant, great friendly and professional staff. Completely unpretentious feel to the evening. Amazing internal decoration. Great location. Our waiter was really helpful without being overbearing with his suggestions. A thoroughly enjoyable evening that my wife and I agreed we would repeat very soon.
Always wanted to go to The Ivy but was very disappointed. Venu lovely, service brilliant. Food disappointing, Prawn cocktail, the sauce was very strong a bit spicy, minute steak not tender only served with chips.ordered a side salad with it. Very expensive for what it is. Music very loud .
Would definitely recommend, food is beautiful and service was so quick and great! Great for dining and lovely bar area to sit at for drinks!
Staff super friendly and professional. Toilets are amazing. Live DJ playing added to the vibe. Impressed with staff knowing everyone's order.
Everything was perfect. Food and staff are excellent
Would definitely recommend and will be back again xx
Perfect dinner, they helped us celebrate a special belated birthday for my Mum - thank you.
Amazing ladies toilets!
Presentation of venue was amazing on arrival, inside is really beautiful! Service was absolutely amazing, such a brilliant vibe inside, music on in the background, everyone seemed so happy, staff and customers. Really couldn’t fault it one bit. I’ll absolutely be recommending this place, already have done! For sure I’ll have to come back.. goes without saying!
Lovely food & service as we’ve come to expect from the ivy in the lanes. I was really impressed and reassured by their covid measures which helped us to relax and enjoy the fantastic food and drinks - we will be back!
Fabulous food and service as always. Always worth a visit
I had a really good time in the Ivy, the cocktails were amazing and the service was excellent too! Thank you to Rafa and all the staff for their attention.
Fabulous birthday lunch for my mums 83rd , birthday treat for her at end of meal, excellent service , only blip was we had another main added to our bill which was promptly dealt with , taken off the bill immediately
A wonderful experience for a special occasion. The food menu options were great and the food was delicious. The service could be improved, we were served our sharing nibbles and were told we were getting this before our starters. The bread turned up but no side plates accompanied when we were told the waitress was getting us some, so we waited and she returned but with all our starters too. The waitress was lovely, but just didn’t seem very “on it” with her service considering the 12.5% service charge added to the bill at the end. A waiter took over service and he was fabulous and very attentive. Overall, a really great experience though
Gorgeous food, fantastic service and lovely wine
It’s a real treat to visit the Ivy
I love the Ivy and this branch is no different. My only complaint is that it’s busy and you can’t loiter at the table any more. But we were at least able to move to the bar to finish our drinks. Very pleasant lunchtime meal.
Arriving at the building the entrance was amazing, so colourful and pretty. Checking in was easy as booked online and table was ready. Drinks took awhile to arrive at the start, food was amazing especially the Zucchini Frittes, they are a must. We all had different starters, mains and desserts and there was no complaints. Can't wait to visit again
Was just perfect for my 40th birthday lunch thank you 🖤
Such helpful staff - lovely atmosphere. Would really recommend
Had a wonderful breakfast in this beautiful restaurant during our short visit to Brighton.
Impeccable service and delicious food.
The breakfast was a bit disappointing - bland smashed avocado and under done poachers - but didn’t complain because Jasmine our waitress was a delight...
Such an important part of the experience at a restaurant is the service and this was outstanding. We loved the atmosphere and design and of course the food was excellent but without good/excellent service there is nothing but a lovely meal. This meal to us was brilliant. Thank you.
Great food, lovely venue, service a little spotty in places eg forgot one starter, slow to bring drinks and had to chase etc
