Executive Chef Gary Lee creates balanced seasonal menus, featuring Ivy classics, but accounting for today’s tastes, incorporating more Asian dishes, salads and vegetables, and the advent of a “sea and shells” section. Director Fernando Peire leads a strong and experienced team to deliver the unfaltering service for which The Ivy has become well known over the years. The Ivy welcomes customers without reservations at the central dining bar, where the A La Carte and Set menus are both served.
Leave by Exit 3 and turn right. Walk up Charing Cross Road and take the 2nd turning on your right into Litchfield Street. The entrance to the restaurant is around the left hand corner on West Street, opposite St Martin's Theatre.
great evening at the Ivy. excellent starters, good service
Everything went well for our pre-theatre dinner for 6 people. We were well attended to and served quickly as requested allowing us to enjoy dinner without worrying about our time. The restaurant is very pleasant, has a good atmosphere and comfortable seating.
Really good service and wonderful food.
Just one of the best London restaurants, food, service and ambiance, always exceptional
Very pleasant atmosphere with outstanding food and service will definitely be going again a real treat
Another gorgeous meal - steak Tartare followed by Steak with a sumptuous Bordelaise sauce. You just can't beat it if you like red meat!
Went twice during our first-time week in London! Really fun and historic spot. Great drinks and food and service.
Fabulous lunch with good food and excellent service
Had a very lovely meal with excellent friendly service would love to go back and will definitely recommend it to friends
You must eat at this place if you come to London. Everything from the food, the service, to the ambiance is what you want from a dining experience. The prices are unbelievably reasonable for such an established and popular restaurant. Make sure you make a reservation! You won't regret it.
Very perfunctory service. We waited 10 min to be seated and another 10 for the bill and they still had us out the door in under an hour. Felt like they didn’t care.
Also the chairs are very small and cramped.
what more can I say its the Ivy! lived up to expectations and was more reasonably priced than anticipated, had a lovely meal and drinks with my girlfriend and will definitely revisit!
For the first time ever we were disappointed with the standard of service. Could not help but feel that we were rated less than worthy since we were all on Dry October whilst the other tables were heavily into their wines. Witnessed another table having great problems getting the attention of the head waiters and yet the servers were all charming but not allowed to take orders or bring the bill. A shame really as have always loved this original Ivy. Miss the old team .
As always a great venue for a night out. It always works out more expensive than we think it will be it be but the quality of the food is faultless. Our only complaint would be that our waiter was not overly friendly.
Consistently good food and service in a lively but not oppressive atmosphere
Great food and very helpful staff assistance! The environment was excellent.!
Birthday meal made special by the attentive and excellent food. Squid salad was amazing! Dover sole brilliant. Wine list excellent too. Thank you for a wonderful night
Great time had by all thou service could of been better
Visit for 5 friends for our Sunday lunch. Gorgeous food and lovely atmosphere in a beautiful restaurant. Service was great also. Three of us had the set menu which was very good and also good value at under £30 for 3 courses, however once you've added on some wine and the service charge, we were a bit shocked that our bill was over £80 each. Think some more reasonably priced bottles of wine would be good, the cheapest was £38.
Everything was of the highest standard and quality. The sort of place that you must try and go to at least once in your life
Very quite, great food !! Not the best service but the food is worth it.
Lovely atmosphere, food not as good this time, waiter acknowledged this which was great
Great to see the new refurbished Ivy. I visit everytime I come to London. Shame the sausages and mash were not on the menu but the Prawns for starter were lovely.
Been wanting to go here for years, never got around to it. Now that I have, I was not disappointed. Had a very pleasant Sunday lunch here, everything was good, service and attention very good, will not wait so long to go again.
The modern twists on some old English favorites were superb. The shepherd’s pie is a must.
I have been several times before and it is always consistently good. Food and service is always excellent.
Mostly excellent as ever, although the sausage and mash was very average.
Service incredible though and so nice of them to bring out the birthday treats for my mother's 70th.
Excellent service, couldn’t have been more helpful. Fantastic ambience, great fun atmosphere. Excellent ‘fish of the day’ topped off with not one, but two baked Alaska’s!! Life doesn’t get much better. Thank you Ivy.
The Restaurant has a stated policy of allowing two (2) hours for the use of their dinning table at usurious pricing. Upon your seating and until one has placed their order, there are 97 or more waiters attempting to nudge you along in your dining process. The service is overwhelming UNTIL the order is taken and then they are on to the next new seated arrival.
We’ve been several times now and the food is always excellent, service is friendly and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone, great for any occasion!
Wonderfull restaurant, impeccable food and service! Menu, wine list, desserts, all amazing! Thankyou to all who so kindly served us, our highest praises to you!
We were received by a very warm and welcoming maitre di.
Then seated at an excellent table and ably looked after by the very attentive staff.
Will definitely return
Really good restaurant, met all my expectations and will definitely come back. Service was amazing, food was excellent and very well designed, it was not assuming, pace of service was just about right. Bar is wonderful and my biggest surprise was that it is reasonably priced (I live in the US and was really impressed with quality and value for money in comparison with similar high end restaurants in the US).
Food was really very good - service was not sadly. Cursory attention from our waiter that deteriorated through the evening. The bill was provided and run through without a word - not even a thank you! We were warned in advance that tables were only reserved for two hours however three courses in under a hour?? Really??? Very disappointing - I had been looking forward to coming here for a while and, given its an “occasion” type place, the service is key.
A lovely place to have dinner. Excellent food, the service and atmosphere. A real treat!
Ivy is an outstanding restaurant with a long and successful presence in the London Theater District. Food has traditional dishes with an updated eating experience. Service also is excellent. It can be noisy at times but not always so. Excellent menu and wonderful desserts. Often fully booked, so plan well ahead.
Very good place for pre- theatre dining. Great food & drinks
the welcome was good,followed by good service and good food in a good ambiance
