    Absolutely loved our meal last night. We both had vegan starters and mains and they were absolutely delicious. The only thing I was disappointed with was that we had to ask for the vegan menu and it wasn’t part of the main menu. These days I would have thought it should be part of the main menu or at least put with the main as a matter of course. Lovely evening though and the vegan menu was very good 😌

    Had a really enjoyable visit with our friends. We sat outside which was well presented. The food was very good value but unfortunately the service could have been a bit better … our waiter forgot a couple of items and one of our starters was the wrong one … other than that we had a good time.

    had the fixed price 3 course menu for lunch and the overall experience was excellent. Portions were generous for a fixed price menu, from experience elsewhere they can be quite small. Would have preferred not to have to climb two flights of stair to reach malle toilets

    Compared to previous visits we were disappointed, the sides to accompany our mains didn't arrive until half the main was eaten. We didn't feel we got value for our money.

    Went to IVY Marlow and received a great welcome from the team despite arriving at 5.30pm. The garden table was fabulous and we went on to enjoy a Lyre non alcoholic cocktail for me the driver and a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rose. The kids food arrived promptly and we all had a great evening. Thanks to all those who made it a special evening for my wife’s 40th.

    Went for a special birthday lunch with my mum. I had mentioned it was my mums birthday as part of the booking, it was a shame nothing was said as it would have been a nice touch, but we had a lovely lunch and drinks and would definitely recommend. Garden is beautiful we can't wait to come back!

    My wife's main course was underprepared and was replaced but mostly after the rest of us had finished. The heavy beer glass was too heavy and unnecessary...I asked for it to be replaced with a regular glass.

    We enjoyed lunch at the Ivy Garden which was a birthday celebration. We both chose from the lunchtime set menu which was very reasonably priced and the food was well cooked and delicious. The service was attentive without feeling rushed. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occassion.

    Really quite buzzing for a Sunday lunch. Food was good, slightly disappointed with the posh chips - they need to be great at that price. Fish was well cooked and portions good. Waiters forgot one of our drinks but overall we were very satisfied. Thank you.

    It’s always lovely at The Ivy, but the service was very slow. We did have to ask when our food would be coming, and drinks. I appreciate it was a Sunday but you knew how many customers you had that day. We will never stop going to the Ivy, it’s just the best place to go, it’s a wonderful restaurant .

    We booked for breakfast given lunch menu when I queried this told breakfast wasn’t being served. Was then told that they could do full English or scrambled eggs, did have some other brunch options on menu. Food was nice and service reasonably good but the the eggs were cold to warm not great for poached eggs! All rather disappointing. Maybe just not a good day??

    10h15 brunch ….but no breakfast menu ??!!! IVY have changed their menus without any information on their website informing guests that breakfast is no longer an option. The eggs on toast was pretty much the only choice and was sent back due to being served stone cold ( manager reimbursed us for this ). Ivy will still be a good place to go for evening dinner but an absolute waste of time for brunch …..unless you want to eat steak and chips or pasta at 10am !!

    Standard Ivy consistency tonight - thick cut chips were poor though ( soggy ) and lots of them were not thick cut as they seemed to be from the bottom of the frozen bag . They are over priced in my opinion. The waitress was not particularly friendly but was efficient. I asked for the service charge to be removed as I only tip for excellent service and for servers who do not wear face coverings . I do not understand why you still make your employees wear coverings - they are protecting nobody.

    First time my husband & I had eaten in The Ivy. Lovely decor and beautiful linen tablecloths & napkins. All waiting staff and batista smartly dressed. Cocktails were being shaken constantly which was interesting to watch. Unusual choices available on the menu- all sounding very interesting. Lovely tasting food. Very good service. Wouldn't fault anything apart from the fact that the toilets are a trek upstairs.

    Went to celebrate my friends 40th. Despite phoning ahead of time, I Was disappointed that the four of us were put on a tiny table outside. Whist the food was delicious, we were crammed on the table with no room for drinks plus food. The service was truly lacking, which was unexpected for an Ivy restaurant. I won’t be returning in a hurry.

    Very poor meal indeed. Surly waiter, and pork cheeks I couldn’t cut let alone eat. Had to reorder and we ate our meals in sittings! Had the cheek to charge me for broccoli I ordered for my second meal choice as the first portion was stone cold. Full service charge added for a very poor service indeed. Not even a complimentary drink offered. Over priced for what was an evening ruined meal.

    Seating on bench was too low, even with a cushion. Gave poor back support and was uncomfortable. Didn't know who our waiter was, a bit chaotic. Otherwise, fabulous evening, and really enjoyed the dinner.

    Wonderful as ever. Candlelit table in the corner made a romantic setting. Apple tart fine flambé at the table was an extra bit of show! The crispy duck salad was a wonderful lighter option.
