Truly a classic restaurant. All food was outstanding. Especially delicious was the sesame ginger chicken appetizer. Amazing flavor that I still haven't figured out yet.
Absolutely brilliant. Have eaten here many times and NEVER had anything but excellent food, fantastic service. Just wish I could get booked in more often. Highly recommended.
Lives up to its reputation. Great meal, lovely wine, great service
Fabulous lunch, wonderful service. Everyone had made an effort to dress up which was nice.
A wonderful lunch with a friend visiting the UK from abroad, who absolutely adored his first visit to this restaurant! We worked out way through three course all of which were deemed delicious, an experience enhanced by the always superb service.
So good service! Sweet staff
Had a lovely early dinner when the restaurant was still fairly quiet. Staff were attentive and as you would expect very good, polite and helpful. Really enjoyable dinner.
Great welcome and excellent attentive service throughout. Food was very good and even managed to spot a celebrity or two. A most enjoyable lunch.
Not worth its reputation. Food was bland, service was basic.
The dressed crab, shepherd’s pie and Thai green curry are excellent. The creme brûlée was also very good. Had a lovely bottle of Margaux with the meal. The staff were knowledgeable and didn’t rush us out. Overall a very pleasing experience.
Was rushed at the beginning and asked for drinks but got our starter before our drinks other than that lovely
Very good and iconic. Feels like history. Defiantly advise going when in town. I’ll be back
We went to the Ivy on 7th July. There’s nothing to say apart from we were treated like we were the only people there. It was really buzzing, really great atmosphere and the staff made it all look so easy. Nothing was too much trouble. We had an amazing time and cannot wait to go back. Thank you so very much indeed for the whole dining experience.
A lovely evening. Good food. But didn’t feel as exclusive as it used to.
Superb ambience-Old school service-Theodore MD was outstanding-wonderful cuisine
Always a great experience, the food is always well prepared and the service is excellent. People are very nice as well.
We dined at the Ivy before the theater. They were attentive to our need to be out at a certain time. The food, especially the shepherd’s pie, was very good. This historic restaurant is beautiful to behold. We were so happy to have chosen it and would do so again.
Another great afternoon spent in The Ivy.
From the minute we walk in we are always greeted warmly and this continues throughout the afternoon.
Popcorn shrimps for starters and duck egg with asparagus a must.
For mains went back for my favourite of calfs Liver, mash and bacon which is unbelievably light and cooked to perfection(yet again).
Dessert was the Pavlova with summer fruits which tasted sweet with a sharpness of fresh fruit. Presentation was very classic so was a shame to eat it but very glad I did.
As always the staff are always very polite and the food is never anything but superb.
We had the scallops and classic fish and chips . Excellent service snd food
A microcosm of the post theatre scene. Great food and people watching.
Not sure if I would recommend.The tables very close together and cramped
Perfect in every way, as always. I adore taking newbies to The Ivy. This time I sampled their beautiful 'Cucumber Gimlet' mocktail, the squid salad, and the cod fillet. I finished off with the chocolate mint Aero pyramid, which was divine. You can't fault this place. Ever.
Great pre theatre meal/ menu was excellent good value and the service exemplary. Recommend +++
Always a pleasure dining at The Ivy
Food, wine and service were excellent. We had a lovely lunch.
The Ivy is a great classic. We had not been back in a number of years, but booked it to meet some American friends that also happened to be in London. The service was excellent. The food was great. The wine list was versatile and reasonably priced for the quality. Despite a stated two hour time slot, we were there three hours and never felt pushed. We would certainly go back.
The focus is more on home cooked English food restaurant style, rather than gourmet and food and prices, given the location and reputation, are quite reasonable. The attention and service is superb and the little touches when dining for a celebration help build a memory.
Wine prices are loaded about as high as I ever seen and I noticed that not too many tables had a bottle in use although rather then being left on the table wine suddenly materialises as soon as your glass gets low. Part of the good service.
great food and great experience. friendly and welcoming.
Service and food was mediocre - I had expected so much more from the ivy
Seating was crowded and cramped
I was very disappointed.
I would not choose to go back as there are so many more restaurants which would provide better quality food and service
Never fails to impress.... excellent food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Love this restaurant!
Loved it, but we had trouble finding it please look at directions for your web site
This time I tried the vegan and veggie menu and it was very enjoyable
Absolutely incredible experience; great food and even better service.
Beautiful restaurant, amazing food and good service. It’s just such a huge shame that the tables are squashed so tightly together; you constantly feel like others are listening to your conversation, which unfortunately made the experience quite uncomfortable.
The food and service was amazing would recommend to anyone I will be returning very soon
The perfect restaurant for a relaxing and spoiling night. The lights are low and even though the restaurant is full you still feel comfortable and private. Food was delicious and the staff were attentive. Couldn’t ask for more.
Great service and delicious food. The Wild Mushroom soup was incredible
I’ve been traveling to London for over twenty years and always have at least one meal here. Happy to say it continues to never disappoint. Both my friend and I have special food requests and the kitchen is attentive and always deliver a delicious meal. I’ve tried newer and trendier, but this a lovely London experience.
Excellent. Perfect from start to finish.
Wonderful quick and polite staff and as alway, a delicious dinner.
