When you take visitors out for dinner you expect good service and hope the whole Experience will be memorable for all the right reasons
Ivy delivers all that many don’t
These are not such hard things just quality and very good customer service

We had the most immersive experience at the Ivy Brighton. A warm welcome awaited and there was no issue around using the gift vouchers we had come with.
Drinks at the bar ahead of being shown to our table were great. Well
Made cocktails and good IPA.
Our waitress was so helpful, friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with everything. We had a lovely informal chat with her and she was most pleasant.
Food was great…. As to be expected at the Ivy. I had the classic shepherd’s pie and my husband had the sirloin steak. Both were great.
The Ivy acknowledges my birthday with a candle in a profiterole which was most unexpected and a great finishing flourish!
We will be back….. had a lovely evening.

A very good waiter who gave time to an elderly friend who was very slow making choices. When a fly got into a glass of wine, arranged for a replacement.

A big thank you to everyone at the Ivy for making our 20th Wedding Anniversary dinner so special and really enjoyable, especially Kathrynne who was key to making the whole evening so wonderful. Loved the venue, loved the food and a top team too. We are now looking for our next excuse to visit.

Third visit in four months for us (we’re London based). Loved it as usual- only negatives were somewhat soggy courgette fritti and basic cheeseboard. Steaks were stunning and done perfectly blue. Service impeccable as usual- we stayed a bit past our allocated slot and were asked very politely to move! Definitely will return.

We went for afternoon tea which was very nice, however the gluten free option was a little lacklustre compared to the standard afternoon tea. The staff were polite and attentive without being overbearing.

The music in the Ivy was far too loud. There was a DJ playing but the volume was much too high and it sounded like being in a nightclub. The food came very fast which made me wonder how much was pre-cooked. The portions were more starter size than main course. Overall it wasn't a great experience.

We were there for Afternoon tea. +Food was alright. Scones too sweet.
+Nice tea options.
+Beautiful setting.
- Very loud music, hard to have a conversation.
- It says dress code - smart casual, but looks like if you are happy to pay wear whatever you want.
-Some staff could be friendlier.

My daughters chicken wasn’t cooked, had to be sent back and replaced, and we were still charged for the dish, she could of been really ill , even the Waiter said it was a fault in the kitchen.

main courses turned up seconds after starter nibbles had arrived . had to send them back until we had funished starters . when main meals returned they were very nice , they would have been even better if the side dishes we ordered had arrived . By the time we could ask our waiter about them we were almost finished our mains and did not want to wait for these dishes to arrive . Also the background music , whilst very good , was slightly too loud so that everyone had to talk to their dining companions quite loudly .
