    Service and ambience were great as usual. My vegetarian breakfast wasn't as good as it has been before. There was water on the plate either from the mushroom or poached eggs, the avo wasn't mashed and there was hollandaise on the eggs and halloumi. Shame as otherwise was a nice morning.

    The garden table was excellent a lovely setting on a warm evening . The waiter was superb - a lovely young man who did his utmost to ensure we had a good time - his managers and there appeared to be lots of them were chaotic / ineffectual to say the least ! Please get your staff uniforms that fit properly - one poor chaps jacket was so tight it looked like it was about to burst ! Food - portions v small - duck salad especially lacking in duck - had fun finding it ! Missing menu items disappointing - Fish and chips / burger good - Korean chicken dry ! Overall - pleasant but not exceptional for the price - it’s a venue for the ambience not the food - left disappointed! Recent meal in a London Ivy was significantly better food and portion size !

    Convenient venue on Marlow high street. Was seated at table near the window in view of the bar. Had the Ivy fish pie special which was full of fish and seafood. Arancinis were outstanding, crispy cheesy mushrooms balls. Zucchini fries were good, chilli mayo was well spiced. Overall good service and great food.

    Have bene here a few times. Usually good food and good service. Today was a big disappointment. Service was very very slow, asked for ice and lemon for our water, lemon never came and ice was provided after asking 3 times and when our drinks were finished. Food not as nice as last few times we have been. Good table location on a hot day.

    Table not ready, so shown to a bar seat that was already taken. At the table we waited 15 minutes to order drinks, one drink then did not arrive, the waiter tried to memorise food order and got it wrong. On serving, part of the food order was missing, so I had to chase that up. This is no longer the pre-COVID Ivy Garden we previously enjoyed so much. The polished and attentive service has slipped away, so the standards are mediocre at best and do not justify the price.

    A very pretty brasserie restaurant with a menu to fit any time of day or occasion. Lovely staff, a high end but relaxed ambience. A few crazy priced dishes for those pushing the boat out, but generally the best dishes are moderately priced and there’s something for every budget without feeling like you’re missing out. A glamorous bar, even for a breakfast coffee and croissant. Afternoon tea is a real girly treat too…a great place to see and be seen

    Had to ask to the served, everyone around us were well attended to which was quite disappointing, it’s wasn’t even very busy. The food is okay, but you could probably get the same quality for half the price elsewhere. Lastly, the two seater tables are far too small, always moving bits around for the plates to fit.

    We found the male waiters were over patronising and far to quick with the service as if we had to be finished and out within half an hour. The waitresses were more professional.

    Another return visit to the Ivy Marlow Garden as I love locally and love the look and beauty of the restaurant. I does depend where you sit though as if you’re near the bar it is too noisy and not very pleasant at all for me. I like the light Atrium area although to enjoy an Afternoon Tea on a table for 2 is difficult as there just isn’t enough space to have the tea pots, tiered stands, milk, sugar, water, separate plates for scones, your own cup and saucer, plate and cutlery. I have experienced this several times now and it really ruins the experience for me. We couldn’t even have the scones on the table as no room so the waiter had to bring them later. It was a very hot day yesterday when we visited (over 30*) and it was quite uncomfortable in the restaurant. What I did like was that, realising how hot it was, the water brought to the table was really cold and not like warm as usual plus he offered us ice and lemon which was appreciated and very welcomed. Nice food although a couple of the sandwiches were a little hard (the bread had obviously been sat on the side for a while) the chicken and truffle brioche as always, was my favourite! Fairly well presented but not like we had once last year when it was beautifully presented in a box like a summers garden - that was something quite special! The restaurant was very busy and bustling, fine for me but others might find that a bit much. I will be revisiting and would recommend to Others.

    A lovely lunch for me and my friend. We were seated next to a table of really really loud and disruptive girls to the point we couldn’t hear over each other. Perhaps keeping groups together would be better than next to tables of 2. Amazing service, great food and after 3pm it really quitened down which made for a lovely atmosphere.

    The staff were excellent, willing and well-trained. Nothing was too much trouble. They really wanted you to have a wonderful meal and made every effort to comply with special requests at no extra change. While the service was prompt when needed it was also unobtrusive and at no point did we feel rushed. We should take as long as we wished - a very pleasant lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday.

    Service was very poor. We had to get the attention of multiple service staff to take orders for both drinks and food. Food was ok… but as we were at the end of the breakfast rush, before brunch/lunch started, the food felt sloppy. Ambience was wonderful, felt very lounge-esque.

    Greeting and service was good, as were the table manners of the staff. My curry was very nice but my brother order the grilled sole which was a little over cooked. Starters of duck salad were well prepared and tasted delicious. Coffees arrived cold and were replaced. Nice experience and good ambience in the restaurant.

    The waiter staff were not very attentive and we felt ignored. Every time I looked they were standing talking in groups of 2 to 3 not working. We had a voucher and the waitress came over with a bill for £8.99. Not saying what it was for until I asked.
