    It was lovely to see The Ivy Marlow Garden busy last night and as usual the ambience and quality of the food was up to the usual high standard. However the service was not good as there didn’t seem to be enough staff for all the covers. We had to wait ages for our table and consequently ended up starting our meal an hour later than our booking. The waiter was apologetic and did offer us complimentary appetisers which was a thoughtful touch.

    My salt and pepper squid was served in a cloth napkin as a starter making this very difficult to eat, main course was a sirloin steak which had a lot of a gristle/tough, which was served late, drinks service took a long time. Very disappointing experience if this is the way that the restaurant is going.

    Having tried The Ivy in York we decided on one closer to home for our anniversary. I booked 3 weeks in advance. Couldn’t fault food or service but we were shown to a table in the middle of the floor by the back door into the garden - not an ideal place to sit, very draughty! For that reason I would think twice about rebooking which is a shame as we liked everything else about our experience!

    We arrived slightly early so had to go away for 15 minutes as no room. When served, the staff were very polite. Not as attentive as your staff at The Ivy in Covent Garden. The food was very good, although not overly hot. No Sticky Toffee Pudding left but the Creme Bruce was lovely. A lovely touch with the cake and candle for my birthday. I made the booking and as a surprise my husband changed the booking from 3 to4 as our son was coming as a surprise. He requested that the new booking confirmation be made to a separate email address, to keep the surprise. Apparently, this was not possible due to me having booked through Open Table. The restaurant is gorgeous and a great atmosphere. I would come again to see how the experience compares.

    We went for dinner to celebrate our son passing his 11+ test. He specifically asked to go to The Ivy, and he absolutely loved it! We sat outside under the heater and found it very special, albeit a little bit fresh! Great food all around, the chocolate bomb was a real hit with him. He now says he wants to go back soon! Thank you for a lovely evening ;-)

    I do like that restaurant. It has fabulous decor resulting in a very pleasant ambient. Service is always implacable and friendly—great choice of cocktails. And my favourite dessert is a chocolate bombe. Recommended.

    Excellent food and ambiance. This was my 2nd visit to Ivy Marlow, my only apprehension is when you enter the restaurant one is hot with the strong smell of fish cooking and for anyone who is not a fish lover would be put off. It’s not pleasant and perhaps there is a ventilation problem. Also noted that the music playing was not inkeeping with the restaurants ambiance perhaps a review. Other than that for a birthday meal lovely, good service, good food.

    It was a lovely meal but partly our own fault really but we felt we were rushed a little. Would have been nice to enjoy our Gin & Tonic drink before our bottle of wine and our starters all turned up in quick succession. We should have waited to order whilst enjoying our drink. The restaurant decor is fabulous and the staff all friendly.

    Disappointed that we were'nt told what was off the menu until we had been left looking and choosing for at least 40 mins, then had to choose something else quickly. Air conditioning was up too high, we were sitting underneath the fan and were freezing. Fire alarm went off during the meal and noone moved, no information from staff as to what to do or explain that it was a false alarm. We had to get up several times to get our wine bottle from the ice bucket and top our own glasses up. Not the best visit to an Ivy restuarant. Previously we have been pleased with the service and experience at The Ivy Marlow Garden. Hope our next visit restores our faith in one of our favourite places to spend a special evening.

    We went for Afternoon Tea and the food itself was delicious. Lots of variety and more than enough for 2 of us, we ended up taking a doggy bag home with us. The issue I had was the service, or lack of. We had to try and get the attention of the waiters to bring over more tea to us, there were plenty of waited around but they were all huddled whispering by the till! Had the same experience with the service last time we came for afternoon tea, not what I would expect from the Ivy!

    The booking system was fine online. I received a non specific call two days before suggesting that I reconfirm the booking which I did through the telephone, which took a while. On the day the food was good, the service was good until dessert where a communication (printer) error meant our dessert took about 45 minutes to arrive after I pointed out the delay. They were apologetic and discounted the dessert when it finally did arrive.

    Another really enjoyable brunch at The Ivy. We had our favourite smoked salmon, just missed the 11.30 breakfast menu as we were a few minutes late. Brought Mum in Law who had the tempura prawns (so beautifully set out on the plate with little flowers) she loved it. Will be back very soon.

    Really enjoyed our first visit to The Ivy. Food was delicious and plenty of choice. Service was second to none. Loved the atmosphere but I can’t recommend it to my parents as it was a bit too noisy for their liking (they would love the food and service though). We will be back time and time again!
