    Birthday . It was lovely but service was v slow and i think we were on the tiniest table ever, definitely not enough room for the afternoon tea stands, teapots etc and the afternoon tea stands were wonky and almost fell over several times

    Food and ambience were okay though I did find the restaurant quite cold and noisy. Had booked for my mum's birthday and specified this in the reservation notes so was disappointed when they didn't bring her anything (even though they were doing this for lots of other guests who also had birthdays) and I had to approach a waitress about it. I don't see how they missed this.

    Waiter wasn’t knowledgeable at all about the allergens options and there was a lot of rushing around by all the staff which made the atmosphere not as relaxing as what is usual for the Ivy (dinner on a Saturday).

    Service faultless as always. Friendly, efficient , staff who notice every detail. Food was great, my husbands Rib Eye steak was overdone ( medium rare requested) it was dealt with quickly and professionally and replaced with a perfectly cooked one. Will always come back for the wonderful ambiance, service & food .

    We’ve visited The Ivy many times before but really disappointed with this visit. It’s our go to restaurant for guaranteed good food and service but last night was very poor. Our main course came out with the starter and the main course was sent back, only the same food to be returned back out later! So therefore the steak was no longer med/rare and had to be sent back. Service was mediocre too forgetting drinks and sauces etc. Not happy with our experience at The Ivy Marlow, plenty of other places to choose from.

    Food good with menu selection providing something for all. Service was very patchy and inattentive and having to wait a long time between drinks orders and drinks arriving. Plenty of staff but can’t see fo the life of me what they were doing.

    My guests and I had a joint 50th birthday party. It was my guest s first time at the Ivy and they enjoyed the whole experience. The waiters and staff were very helpful and didn't rush us. The food was fabulous as always. And it was so lovely when the staff brought our cakes with a candle. Such a wonderful Day and we will remember it forever. Duck curry fabulous Smoked salmon and eggs fabulous

    Lovely atmosphere, great food. Tables a little small when dining for two and the service was a little slow. Had a great time, ideal for a celebratory meal. We were given a complimentary dessert for our anniversary which was a thoughtful touch.

    It was our first time visiting the Ivy Marlow Garden which I booked for my Wife's birthday. All of the staff that we met were polite, friendly and efficient. We asked for a table in the lovely courtyard at the rear of the restaurant which is a lovely location with lots of plants. We had lunch and all of the food was lovely and still left room for dessert, and I can highly recommend the melting chocolate bomb, which is probably the best dessert i have had in a long time. My wife appreciated the large profiterole complete with candle that was brought out complete with candle for her birthday. The whole experience was lovely and we will return with friends soon.

    We were seated in the conservatory, which on a relatively mild day was only just warm enough. We would not eat in the conservatory again, but this cannot be stipulated online. The food and service were good, but the seating was not. My wife was seated against the wall and my seat facing her for some reason was much lower.
