The Ivy in the Lanes
Brilliant night staff very welcoming service good decor great.
The afternoon tea was disappointing. Uninspired sandwich fillings. Soggy white bread with no taste and soggy brioche rolls. Scones delicious cake selection ok not keen in the drink served. Staff as usual were amazing. But not the special birthday treat I was expecting from The Ivy
My husband and I had a wonderful lunch at The Ivy. The food is very reasonably priced, and tastes amazing. I’m a vegetarian and there was lots to choose from. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Would most definitely go again.
Wonderful food drink and atmosphere really lovey experience
We had a lovely time. Fantastic meal and the attention to detail was amazing. The prices were great and it felt really special for my big birthday celebration. The ladies bathrooms were astonishing and watching the mixologists was great. The food was hot and appetising. Would definitely love to come again. Thank you for the gorgeous profiterole with the birthday candle. Lovely touch
Celebrating a friend forthcoming wedding and was very impressed by the quality of the food, great wine and champagne cocktails. We were fortunate to have an excellent waiter and spent 3 happy hours in your restaurant
First time we had ever been, and it was amazing, beautiful, friendly and food was lovely
Always a great place to eat great food and service always brilliant wherever the restaurants are
Had to wait outside despite there being empty tables. Had to wait at bar without being served/ignored. Had to speak to staff to get a table. Food good, room very noisy. Price fair to expensive. Would not return unless quieter. English’s is better!!!
Being asked to move off our table after 1 hour 45 mins was a little disappointing. Literally just finished dessert and still had wine to drink
Seems like a quick turn around.
Our server was very lovely about it and moved us to thur bar.
Would have been nice to have 15/20 minutes longer.
A truly wonderful dining experience. The service was excellent and the food lovely
Too dark. They dont have the correct mood lighting and you may need a torch to read the menu
Great service and food and lovely ambience, perfect for a special birthday celebration
It was a special day as it was my wife’s 81st birthday - the staff were extremely courteous and efficient - service was excellent- food superb - surroundings quite outstanding. We had a super time!
A beautiful restaurant with superb food and service.
Only thing spoilt it for us was the music was too heavy and thumping for us in an elegant restaurant such as this. Music should be light and soft here not pounding. It was in my opinion unnecessary and detracted from the overall ambience and experience.
Very good food, service was first class, professional and faultless.
The Ivy is a favourite place for me to eat. My daughter and I love the Margaritas! If you’re looking for value for money, this is not the place. Though food is excellent, portions are small. Not for the hearty eater! For special occasions, ideal
Lovely birthday brunch, cool decor, chilled out atmosphere
Great place excellent food with exceptional service. Highly recommend for a special treat.
Lovely decor, feels special. The menu is varied and portions where generous.
Really good night celebrating. We were made to feel very special and the food was amazing!
Our waiter Ivan looked after us very well.
Great food and drink. Excellent service. Party included an old friend as our guest and The Ivy did us proud. Will be returning.
Made us feel welcome. Our waiter Julian was friendly and informative. We ordered the Pork Cheeks and the Crispy Duck Salad, both delish and done to perfection. Pastry desert was disappointing. Music was too loud, too much base. We will be asking for Julian on our return visit!
We visit the Ivy Brighton during our week ends away. They have always been outstanding in every respect . As a more mature couple my wife and I were very disappointed to find the distance between tables minimal, and the capacity much more than we anticipated. We felt very uncomfortable throughout; it was my wife’s birthday and did not want to embarrass her so did not raise the issue. I accept you met the regulations to the last rule, but non the less, in light of the current Covid virus ever getting worse, I expected The Ivy to be more supportive. We stay at The Grand, where everything reflected a much safer environment. I acknowledge you may do very little to improve the social distance issue raised here. The Ivy policy will not change whilst the revenue dictates finance over safety, so long as they follow Government guidance. At present I could not recommend the Ivy. Previously yes I woul have.
Booked in advance as was spending a few days in Brighton for my birthday. Was not disappointed! Food was amazing, service was spot on, decor was phenomenal. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful late lunch - what a treat
A perfect oasis to relax in Brighton with delicious food from an extensive menu. Lovely ambience and friendly, helpful staff. This was a Birthday lunch for my daughter on a shopping trip and we both enjoyed the whole experience. Tip - don’t miss a visit to the glamorous Hollywood style loos!
Hostesses at the door very welcoming and also very nice when leaving. Waiter was also very good didn’t pester us but also knew when to come and clear our table at the right time. Food was delicious very much worth the money.
We celebrated my mum's birthday at the Ivy and it has been amazing. We love the ambient and the food. The service is friendly and quick. Highly recommend and will go again, when in Brighton.
Felt a bit cramped where we were sitting , especially as there was lots of space in other parts of the restaurant .
I had a wonderful time celebrating for my Birthday which was much more special than I could have imagined.
The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and really went above and beyond to make my experience so lovely.
The food was incredible and the service is so quick and professional.
The decor and seating was really beautiful and comfortable, such a luxurious time.
Thanks for a wonderful celebration.
Lovely service .. especially from Vivianne. Noted that it was our anniversary and produced profiteroles as a treat to have with our irish coffees . Food was excellent and the setting really quite stunning
Although felt we were rushed as starters delivered within 10 mins etc
Had a lovely time at the ivy, great vibe and great food and service. Would definitely recommend!
Great service, friendly and unobtrusive.
Super food and wine.
Busy but not frenetic atmosphere
We had a lovely evening. The food and wine were excellent and service professional and friendly. It was very noisy and at times it was hard to hear what my companion was saying. One minor niggle, they haven’t reopened the cloakroom.
Amazing that's all I can say food amazing place amazing
Fabulous food and great service. Will definitely go again.
Lovely atmosphere, good service & excellent food. Our third visit & will no doubt be back.
It was very noisy despite us being tucked away in corner. Ventilation in kitchen needs sorting as could just smell cooking in did ing area.
The decor is beautiful, the service was brill.
Mains delicious, chocolate melting bomb was terrible both consistency and overly sweet (all 3 of us tried it and thought was awful) and an expensive mistake at £9.
