Was really looking forward to eating at The Ivy. It was meant to be a nice dinner before lockdown 2. We were given a reduced menu which is understandable. However, half of the reduced menu wasn't available as the restaurant ran out of the ingredients. Our 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices weren't available and our 1st and 2nd wine choices were also unavailable. We would have gone somewhere else but we knew we wouldn't be able to get a table anywhere else. So we ordered the salmon which was very dry. The only good part of the meal was the dessert. Overall, extremely disappointed.

Menu needs changing. And also did not appreciate being kicked out without any notice. If there’s a limit in the table, we should know in advance.

I love The Ivy, its beautiful, and perfect located, I recently moved to Canary Wharf and this have been my new spot for meetings, I'm very lucky to also have Ivy Asia close to my work, so have been both on the several times, and tit always feel like a bit of luxury, the waiters are very good and attentive, the food is delicious and make you feel pampered. As soon as the lockdown is over I will come back.

The place is lovely but where we was sat wasn’t great and the service was very slow but the food was delightful and even if the service was slow the waitress was still very kind.

Very disappointed with the service it took at least 38 minutes to have a round of drinks from being seated. Terrible. When we requested the bill all the waitress could do was say it’s busy. Sorry but at your prices this is unacceptable service. This is our 6th visit and we are not sure we would come back unless otherwise convinced. The food was slow in arriving and was not hot. We were told at seating we have only a set time at table and then chased to the bar. I would not expect this from The Ivy

Door staff were rude and assumed I knew their Covid processes. I ordered the Monkfish curry which was salty and otherwise had no other flavour to it. The food is overpriced for what it is. Ordered the calamari and prawn starter which was small for the price. Food was underwhelming.

Very upset to see the rules being so blatantly broken. More than one Table of six friends (obviously not from same household). Many more tables of fours obviously not from same household.
Being of high risk found this very upsetting.
If these restaurant could only stick to the rules they wouldn’t have to be shut down again.
These rules are actually only brought in for our own good and to stop illness and deaths. Restaurants who feel they are above the law are actually the ones who cause total lockdowns .
Very very bad show

Great atmosphere, decent food, but although the waiter was lovely he kept getting it wrong or things didn't turn up......bit unfair to criticise in these crazy times though.

It was an alright experience. We were in the psudo outdoor bit, which was a tad cold.
The hot chocolate was lovely.
I liked the sanitiser they had on the table. Nice touch and went with the style of the place.
The food was a let down. Chunky fries a bit cold and bland. The Keralan curry was completely tasteless, even bad. Not close to resembling any kind of curry, let alone Keralan. The fish was ok.

We booked a table for anniversary dinner and found it very cramped. It was a small table for 2 people whilst the table next to us had a table which sat 4 (only 2 people using table) and were just having drinks.

Would have preferred a bigger table especially as we pre-booked for anniversary dinner.

Service was good. Must say that. Very helpful.

It was a bit cramped at door when guests are having temp taken as people are waiting to come in and stand very close - less than 2 metres

Loved the food but you need to be careful as someone hacked into the details of customers and asked for there bank details. Luckily I didn’t give it but a lot of other people did and lost their money.

Night was excellent, servers really went above and beyond. Unfortunately somehow my reservation details were leaked to a scammer who was ringing me all day the following day telling me that I had been overcharged. Perhaps should tighten up the cyber security. Other than that was a great evening!

Obviously I attended during Covid so unfortunately wasn't packed but that was not an issue. The staff still gave it their all, gave us some exceptional service so the Covid precautions just felt like they were always part of the way they do things. The temperature checks and social distancing did not impact at all on our experience and we loved it. Thank you.

Lovely restaurant, tables are well spaced out so no worry about being too close to orher people. The staff are extremely friendly & polite & nothing seemed too much. I would definitely recommend this for lunch or dinner. A nice touch were small bottles of hand gel on the tables.
