Making the reservation through open table was absolutely astounding.
The crispy duck salad was the best to start of. Zucchini fries was delicious and came in a big portion.
For the main, I had grilled yellow fin tuna, and it was excellent. It doesn’t have any smells or after taste.
My husband had the Ivy burger and he seemed to be very happy about his choice.
Our desserts were amazing.
They even prepared a happy birthday greeting for my husband and that made it even more special.

And of course, the waiter delivers quality service (I forgot his name). He’s really really great in his job. Very polite and approachable. He took photos too 🥳.

Had a wonderful time with my wife at the Ivy, we ate only off the starters menu sampling different dishes. Everything we ordered from the Tuba Carpaccio to the smoked salmon and crab was of such high quality and light and fresh. We received a complimentary bottle of wine after the waiter brought us the wrong bottle, honest mistake, that turned into a nice service moment. We will definitely be back.

First time visited this restaurant and it was for my husbands 30th.

Ambience is lovely, great selection of food to choose from and food was lovely.

Found it to be quite loud so the waiter and waitress struggled to hear us, service was a bit slow and not very forward thinking. Being 6 months pregnant and being sat on low seating wasn't great. I had ordered a surprise cake for my husband also and the waitress decided to tell everyone that they were bringing out the cake so it was no longer a surprise and they also lost the cake box so couldn't take it home.

I would go back because the food was lovely but service does require working on.

First time at an Ivy. My wife’s birthday.

Very enjoyable, good food, and pleased that they catered for gluten-free as well.

Odd that the knives were so blunt that they wouldn’t cut the vegetables 🤷🏼‍♂️.

Would definitely go back.

Whilst overall we enjoyed our Ivy experience the only downside was that no sooner had we finished our starter the main course arrived giving us hardly any time to digest our food.

Very poor reception, we had to carry our coats and umbrellas because no space, even it was empty. We changed table 3 times because they put us in a corner with no space on a very small table. I booked well in advance for my birthday, so no impress also because wasn’t that busy. The food was nice and the waitress also nice . Nobody in reception when we walked in , she appeared after few minutes of us standing, and wasn’t very helpful.

I took my 8 week old baby who is called Ivy to the Ivy because it was my mother in laws birthday and I wanted somewhere quiet for my baby who is very well behaved. The staff were more than accommodating and we had a delicious meal. I am looking forward to dining again.

Lovely ambience inside, spotlessly clean. Food was 10/10 other than a coffee that wasn't warm enough. Definitely recommend and good value also. Thx Ivy👍

Let me start by saying I am a fan of The Ivy chain, but this was a really disappointing experience.

We arrived to find a leaking roof and the ladies toilet out of order...

Part of our food order was dropped on the way to the table so we had our chips half way through our main. Vegetables were a bit tepid also.

One of my party could not eat all of her main so asked for it to be wrapped so she could take it away - the waitress later returned to say it had been dropped in the kitchen!

Ordered two pots of tea, but one turned up with milk or something already in the teapot with the tea bag - it was replaced, but a bit worrying that a pot of tea was so difficult....

All in all not a good experience and we are unlikely to return to the Ivy Canary Wharf

This was our first trip to the Ivy in the Park and we will definitely be back. The service was excellent as one would expect at the Ivy and the food was excellent. We also enjoyed the ambience and music.

There was a massive leak From the toilets above and had toilet water dripping through the ceiling Which I think is very unhygienic The toilets are all out of use, so my girlfriend had to walk across to another restaurant to use there toilet with stormy conditions outside It’s basically ruined her hair which she spent loads of money on earlier that day apart from that the food was nice

The menu is squashed onto a sheet with a font and design aimed at folk with 220 vision and given lighting almost impossible to read. My salad duck starter contained an abundance of peanuts and although I do not suffer any nut allergies dishes such as this should be clearly highlighted as the risks are well known.
The waitress was somewhat rushed and gave little service in her prespentpationand more the impression she was doing her shift!
My wife had previously experienced the dessert of the chocolate bomb and raved about it but this time it was incorrectly served and obviously had been standing prepared so the caramel experience wasn't forthcoming
Overall disappointing with the music background somewhat at a juxtapose to the setting

The food and service was very good and quite enjoyable. The music that they chose was completely unsuitable for the evening and ended up spoiling the evening for us. The music in the male toilet was very good as it was soft jazz piano music, and I wished they played that in the restaurant as well. This may cause me not to book there again.

The experience and setting was fantastic, very beautiful. Yet the food was disappointing, overpriced and overcooked. The service was poor as they forgot our starter and at the end gave us the wrong bill! Which was £50 more expensive.
