    I arrived and they were quite busy, waited for 10-15 min to be served. The waiter was very kind I have to say. I order a vegetarian curry which came with a tofu that was impossible to cut or even swallow. But as I waited very long to be served, I decided not to mention anything there and then. My experience wasn’t the best this time.

    The service was completely non existent. Had to wait an hour for the bill and ask 4 different servers. I had to leave the table to hunt down a server to be able to order a drink. We were in the restaurant for over 3 hours and only spoke to a server twice. Then to top it off they charge you £10 for the invisible service. Went for a Birthday dinner and have never had such a bad experience especially at somewhere that has the gall to charge the price they do. You get better service at Pizza Express for a third of the price.

    It was such a pleasure to be welcomed and looked after by 'front of house' staff and waiters. The were all, without exception, extremely kind and helpful, and went out of their way to ensure our comfort. It was a pleasure to meet them all and I cannot praise them highly enough. The venue has a pleasant ambience and enjoyable decor. The food was very good; My dining companion thoroughly enjoyed her fishcake. and I enjoyed my dish. That said, I feel that the prices are slightly inflated. I am impressed by the comprehensive drinks menu, although, again, I feel that it is all somewhat overpriced. However, the exemplary service and pleasant surroundings provided sufficient compensation!

    Service incredibly slow. Waited more than 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged our presence. Wine put in an ice bucket away from the table so only staff could serve it, but then no staff served it so we had to keep walking over to get it ourselves (very happy to pour my own wine, just put the bucket by my table). Felt like our custom was not valued because we were not Canary Wharf bankers. Won’t be going back.

    Sorry for feedback being not great. We came to Ivy as it is my husbands favorite restaurant and my son chose to bring him here for fathers day. Firstly, my son did not receive his archini balls and silly us did not realise until later that evening, this is the second time we have ordered and not received our full starters. Secondly, my husband who absolutely loves fish and chips, found the fish to be soggy and did not enjoy chips, he left most of his food. Thirdly, we did not appreciate a dog barking while have our meal, we did not realise IVY allowed dogs into the restaurant, I really don't mind this but customers should be told that they will be sitting in that part of a restaurant where the dogs would be, my husband is petrified of dogs. However, the other starters were really nice and everyone enjoyed. I feel it is important to point out these points in order to put things right and future mistakes are not made.

    I had a lovely time, marred only by the brusqueness of the waitress. I signalled to a different server near to the end of our meal, and he was very sweet. She requires some politeness training.

    First visit to the area, arrived by tube and had great difficulty finding the restaurant. We were a little late as a result but still had to wait until our table was ready. It was very noisy in the bar area. Once seated the waitresses were friendly and the service good. I found the menu limited and the food we had, a fish curry and a chicken dish quite bland and unexceptional, not what I had expected from a restaurant with the reputation of the Ivy. The wine was over priced for what it was. Overall I was not impressed and doubt I will eat there again.

    Disappointing service. Food arrived together except my wife's side of peas. It then took over 5 minutes before they turned up at which point the food had gone cold. Then on top of that the egg with the chicken was hard and when we asked the manager she said that was normal.

The food was delicious and great value for money. Service was also fantastic and waiters and waitresses were really friendly. Will definitely be returning x

    For some reason all the lights were turned up bright at 10:30 giving the indication that the restaurant was about to close. Initial service was good but then we were left alone more or less for 50% of the time we were there. Main meals were late, and desert wasn’t offered. Started good, ended very average indeed.

    My friend who I was with ordered from the vegan menu and she was given LOBSTER in her vegan linguini. She ended up in tears. She was also asked if she had any intolerances prior to us making an order and she explained she was dairy intolerant but her pasta was accidentally also cooked in butter. This led to her being very unwell and in tears when she asked management what was in her food and we were given the unfortunate news she was unwell. We has travelled from Poole and after that meal had to cancel all our events we paid for. My friend hadn't eaten meat in years. Despite our cautious efforts to keep the staff informed of her intolerances and food preferences the service was very poor. This does not even include the state of the bathroom with sanitary pads leaking out the bins. The staff were VERY VERY apologetic but of course this didn't take away from the trauma.

    Service - Unfortunately, service was non-existent from arrival to the end of our meal. We had to stand up and walk to waiters repeatedly to get service. The only positive, was great customer service by the manager, Valerio, at the end of our meal, hence why I did not rate lower. Would be helpful if the restaurant notifies customers that they will receive reduced service levels via OpenTable due to staffing issues. Food - Fishcakes were good. Nice drinks.

    Good food as usual in an Ivy. We sat outside at 5pm which was nicely in the shade on a 32C afternoon. Like many other establishments they are short staffed, staff were stressed and unusually we waited 30 minutes to see a drink which was incorrect. But staff were lovely and we empathised with them in this climate off staff shortages.
