    Unfortunately it was a bad experience for my birthday. I have been to the ivy group on various occasions and this was by far the worst. We waited a very long time for our order to be taken and then shortly after our starters we were presented with a complimentary birthday desert which would of been lovely had we had our main course. A member of staff did eventually offer us a glass of champagne on the house obviously to keep us calm whilst they prepared our main course. The service charge was on the bill but we were told not to pay it . A disappointing end to a lovely birthday.

    Saturday lunch outside. Food very good as always. Nothing to do with the restaurant but if you sit outside in the summer on the ground floor beware, as you might get bothered with flies, we had to bat them off all through our main course.

    Love the Ivy in general and this one in particular. Never a bad word but on this occasion the service, due to no fault of our lovely friendly Romainian server, was a bit sketchy. The dinner wine arrived way before our pre dinner cocktails, and these came only halfway through our appetisers. Our "backup' waiter was unable to confirm if the fries were not salted, as requested. Our steaks were getting cold by the time the chips returned. Just a wee note to hopefully curtail any further issues. We would be mortified if there were as this is one of our favourite go to places in the city.

    We had a really bad experience at The Ivy Canary Wharf on Friday Night. The service was extremely bad and very very slow. We booked a table at 9pm, and we had to wait 30 minutes before the table was ready, meanwhile many other groups of 2 were being seated. We were then seated in a very empty area with many free tables next to us. It took a really long time to get drinks, and at the end we waited over 30 minutes to get a coffee. The staff were quite rude.

    Have been to Ivy Canary wharf quite few times and experience always was amazing. Unfortunately yesterday me and my friend was a bit disappointed with service. Our table was served by 5 different waiters and they all been coming asking do we wanna order something when we already did with previous waiter. We ordered a bottle of prosecco and they did not have where to put it next to our table so i had to keep asking waiters to fill the glasses. When we said we want to remove service charge no one even asked why and what was the problem, so we paid and left. Overall loved the restaurant but service was poor.

    Food was OK but when I got there, they put us outside on the terrace, and 20 ft away from us they had builders comstructing their outdoor bar with power drills etc. Asked the waitress if they were going to be drilling while we ate - “yes - they are working”, turns he back and then walks off. They were then understaffed so it took 15 minutes to take our order. Specifically asked them to bring the bill and the card machine with dessert to make up time so we didn’t have to go through the usual performance of taking 5 minutes to get their attention to bring the bill, then another 5 minutes waiting for the bill, then another 5 minutes waiting for them to bring the card machine. Waiter forgot to do it as he had so many tables to cover. He was nice and apologised, but when you’re charging £26 for a salad, maybe tell the builders to STFU and don’t make people wait 15 minutes to order and another 15 to pay during their lunch break?

    I visit the Ivy in the park for my wife’s birthday. The ambiance was excellent and the food was delicious. Would recommend the monkfish and prawn curry. The staff was excellent and the very friendly. The prices are reasonable for a special occasion but be mindful that the still water is not free! Overall, it’s an excellent place to visit if your in London and want that city view.

    Pancakes are always undercooked! I asked many times to make sure that properly cooked it doesn’t change anything! My coffee was beautifully done this time. I always feel nervous if it is going to be presented nicely or not. I can’t understand that even those basic things can’t be corrected for last 2 years! Also menu needs to be changed. Other ivy’s has got better selection in their menu why not Canary Wharf ?

    Second bad meal in 6 weeks, with the constant excuse of "we're short staffed". Was sat on a table in the conservatory area which constantly had smoke coming in from the open window (smoking area on other side), to which even the waitress commented on the bad smell. The beef sandwiches were awful. The bread was burnt and rock hard (meaning we left all of the top half), told the beef would be served red/pink (which it usually is), although was served brown with no flavour. Hardly any onion/sauce inside... and no one to raise these points with during the meal as the staff were too busy with the larger tables. We also didn't have any drinks during our meal, so I eventually got up and asked a waiter indoors for some tap water. Sat around waiting to find someone to get the bill for around 10 minutes, to which I then asked a waiter indoors for the bill, 15 minutes later, still nothing. Eventually went to reception to ask if we could just pay there. Instead, they made us sit down, and brought the bill over, with 15% tip - when the only service we received was the first 10 mins by a lady waitress who clearly went off shift at 4pm. We asked for this to be taken off, and told we'd have to wait for a manager. After 5 minutes, we ended up going to reception with cash and giving it to them, as we were now 15 minutes late for an activity. 30 minutes to receive a bill is ridiculous, especially when the last 50 minutes we didn't have a drink. When walking out, we were simply told "ah yeah, we're short staffed and it's busy"... which is the exact excuse given 5 weeks ago. No apology, just an excuse. Don't even bother wasting your money here, it's pointless paying the premium prices for burnt untasteful food of which you have no waiter to bring it to their attention or ask for another drink, yet they will still put 15% service charge on, and act shocked when you ask to take it off. Premium prices for a 2* experience. It's a shame, as we have been here many times since it opened.

    Food and atmosphere are good. Service was terrible. Mixed up our order. And never came back to top up our wine, so we served ourselves. Then left us empty for a while and we had to ask for the wine menu, then she disappeared for ages. Then finally gave us dessert menus, and never came to take an order. She also went on break and never introduced who would be taking over, because no one did!

    We went to the Ivy last night. After being to this restaurant previously we had high hopes for a nice evening. Unfortunately, this was not the case. After 5 minutes of sitting down we were asked to move as they’d ‘forgotten’ about a big party coming in that area. We were sat outside which was nice, but then after ordering we waited near to an hour for food. After my partner enquired where our food was, it came immediately. (Which I assume means it was forgotten and left under lamps) We ordered two steaks and when the waitress put them down and we asked if we had the correct food (one well done, one medium rare) we were met with complete silence. As in the girl had never seen a steak in her life. We had to cut them to see and my medium rare was almost well done. I asked for it to be changed and what ensued was a complete disaster from the chef and service staff. I’ve never before witnessed a chef who can’t cook a steak. I waited another 15 mins for my steak to arrive to have it come rare/raw. It was fatty and tough and still the staff had no idea what was going on. We had staff come to our table with wrong orders also. By the time my second inedible steak came, all of the side plates were cold. The supervisor however, was extremely nice and helpful and was clearly mortified. The staff need ALOT more training for such an expensive restaurant and they definitely need a more competent chef. Unfortunately, I doubt we’ll go again as it’s clearly gone down hill. Also, as someone who has worked in hospitality, it’s shocking that there were no managers to speak to on a busy Saturday night.

    We arrived a little late due to excessive traffic in CENTRAL London…, and we were made to feel extremely comfortable by all the Hostesses present. They were delightful and very professional and all so willing to assist and they made us all immediately comfortable. Our order for drinks and our Meal were taken speedily and served with speed and attention The waiters were so interested in getting our Orders correct and not keeping us waiting. Well done to all the staff The ambience and total restaurant design together with the Bar (and Bar staff who were impeccable and entertaining too. What a wonderful evening we all had ! Brian Hart
