The food was impeccable and always the drinks were perfect and the service left us feeling catered to and completely at ease. You just can’t ask for more from a restaurant.

I’m so disappointed it’s difficult to convey, great get up but massively overpriced, ordered the special which was a duck curry.
Very little Duck in a Milk sauce 🙄disgusting who thought milk & duck was a palatable combo

Beautiful restaurant but it feels like a common chain. Some diners were dressed in hoodies, jogging bottoms and even sports cap. Not saying you should be suited and booted but I think the Ivy has lost its elegance. The food is very average, I was expecting more from the quality and the presentation but unfortunately it wasn't quite there. The food was not fresh, it felt like the food was re-heated and there wan't much flavour. The staff were friendly and efficient but that's the only positive. The Ivy is definitely over hyped, there are much better restaurants in London.

We were very disappointed with the service we received.

Sadly the waiter did not speak English, it was very hard to get anyone's attention and we were left waiting for a considerable time. The restaurant was not full so its hard to see why this was the case. The staff had a "not my job attitude" and when we asked for something it was simply passed to another member of staff. Very disappointing service.

Although saying that the food was good as always.

We wanted a low-key but special anniversary lunch for just the two of us. The Ivy didn't disappoint - food and service were excellent, the staff could not have been more charming. The ambience went from laid-back to 'energetic' during our visit and by the time we left it was a little noisier than we prefer - the inevitable result of enclosed spaces, reflective surfaces and lots of happy people having a good time. But that didn't spoil our lunch.

We had such a fun evening! I tried a CBD cocktail, lovely. But the real winner was the white port spritzer with apricot fizz that my husband ordered. So so good! Not bad pricing for the level of food and service. That’s we will be back.

The miso black cod was disappointing - almost dry. The service was surly - felt like us being there was an imposition. However, the sommelier was very helpful. Have always had good food and service here, so am hoping it was just an 'off' night.

The service is rubbish. I also paid for service charged which I shouldn’t have. They didn’t deserve the service charge at all.
We had to ask for menus, we had to constantly look around for staff to help us.

It was the WORST service experience as it’s the IVY you will naturally expect better service.

Anniversary dinner. Arrived on time but had to wait a short while for our table; cocktails at the bar. Good menu; starters from the regular menu, mains from the specials. Shared one (generous) cheeseboard for dessert accompanied by a glass of Port each. Food was very good. Excellent wine list but eye-wateringly expensive (for what we had). We were served by Roxanne, who was outstanding; attentive without being sycophantic, knowledgeable without being overbearing. Advice regarding menu selections was well-proven and well-received. A real gem.

It was amazing. The ONLY thing was as we were leaving. I was in a cubicle in the toilet, A staff member came out of the other cubicle, fixed her hair and walked out without washing her hands. Tbh I didn’t want to think about it, this was the wrong decision but I overthought it thinking she could lose her job. Please remind staff to wash their hands. Everything else was perfect!

One of the better Ivys. I usually go to the Chelsea one and the service had gone down hill. This one ticked all the boxes.

Booked the table especially on the back of 'Ivy Canary Wharf' instagram post advertising their special pancakes being served All Day. Arrived at the resturant for our 7:30 booking, doors didnt open until 7:33, - no apology, were told we couldnt have the pancakes as these wern't being served until 11AM, refered the staff to their own post stating 'all day', manager came over, argued the point, no apology, went and spoke to the chef who said he could make them for us.
If this was the experience from McDonalds it wouldnt warrent a 1* or complaint but i expected more when i'm paying £15 for a thin crep and drink.
