    Beautiful restaurant in Marlow and very busy and buzzy! Had a super table in the garden. Good service. The food I ordered was so bland and tasteless and not of the usual Ivy standard. It was risotto with saltimbocca grilled chicken. My friend had the minute steak which looked great and she said it was fabulous! The risotto was dry and looked like scrambled egg and had no seasoning at all. On top were 3 tiny pieces of pancetta and then 3 tiny pieces of dry chicken. I had one mouthful and sent it back and asked for the good old faithful lobster linguine, which was delicious. Apologies were given but I am not sure how this could ever have left their kitchen. Surprised

    Lovely restaurant, quite lively, service was quick without being rushed. Food was beautifully cooked and fresh. Although busy we didn’t feel too close to surrounding tables. The waiter was excellent and very hard working. Altogether a top restaurant!

    The Ivy is a lovely venue. The menu is varied and the food is always tasty and full of flavour. The service is helpful and friendly and the level is just right - not too intrusive but there if you need them. I love the decor and the ambience - open, airy and tables not on top of each other. I visit the Ivy whenever I am in the area.

    An interesting and clever design has produced a delightful restaurant, with a light, 'garden' atmosphere inside as well as outside. The staff are welcoming and attentive, the menu is varied, with a good choice for non- carnivores- which is amajor reason why I like Ivy restaurants - and the food is good and reasonably priced. It's a relaxed atmosphere, not noisy, and was the perfect place to meet a lifelong friend living in the USA whom I'd not seen for quite a while. I'll be back!

    I have eaten here many times and loved it. On this occasion some of the food was disappointing and the service at the start was very slow. 3 of my guests said the cheese soufflé was awful. Stodgy and heavy and unlike a soufflé. Does not compare with soufflé at Roux at Skindles.

    Unfortunately my chicken Milanese was bland and tasteless. No batter to be found and no flavour either…. My tempura prawns contained a lot of shell which I had to keep disposing of. Apart from that everything was ok. My partner loved his food and the service was good.

    We had the wonderland afternoon tea, it stated chocolate cake bit we had a substitute which looked like a donut. And the green juice with a straw didn’t actually state what it was and it was vile.

    On every other visit our food has been excellent however, this time 4 of us were booked in for lunch and really looking forward to our get together. On choosing the lunch menu our first course of crab was good . Our main course however of haddock goujons was for me inedible . No flaky white fish but what seemed like minced fish inside an undercooked batter. Crispy on the outside so looked good but soggy on the inside , I couldn’t eat it ! We all went away so disappointed , it’s put me off going again!

    After eating here on several occasions, I decided to treat my 3 daughters to afternoon tea. It wasnt the experience I had expected. We ordered cocktaiks they didnt arrive until 30 minutes after ordering . The table was too small to cater for 4 covers ! The champagne was delicious and another bottle was purchased ! We had to reapeatedly ask for our tea . I think the staff were busy , however thats no excuse for bad service which is what we received . I wanted my girls to feel special but we all felt we were being an inconvenience! A girl in a red dress i presume was a manager of “ sort “ she was rude and very curt ! I run my own company and I know how important feedback is . It just wasnt the special afternoon Id expected . Kind regards Mary Baggott

    Food was cold. Eggs benedict with Hollandaise sauce all cold not even lukewarm. Couldn’t eat it but didn’t have time to wait for a replacement. Did tell the waiter who refunded us for both dishes. Service and ambiance excellent and restaurant is beautiful. Shame about the cold food!

    Our waitress for the evening was lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful! The food was very disappointing. My steak, sauce and spinach came out cold (the steak was deducted from the bill though) and a couple of the burgers were over cooked. Starters and puddings were fantastic though, definitely saved the meal. I also ordered an Espresso Martini, which should be smooth on top but the froth was curdled. Very disappointed with our experience to be honest.
