    Good selection of sandwiches and cakes, some bought in. Service good and well looked after. Background music was alittle loud at times and not in character with eg afternoon tea string quartet. We learnt that the played is more lively on a Friday and over weekend, so chose a weekday if you want a more peaceful ambience. Enjoyable afternoon.

    Would highly recommend The Ivy, Montpellier, not only for the food, drinks and ambience but the professionalism of the staff. They went above and beyond when we couldn’t get a taxi from our accommodation to the restaurant', they arranged a taxi for us. A beautiful friendly restaurant with high standards of customer service not to mention wonderful and most delicious food! It was my mums 80th birthday and they made a fuss of her and made her feel really special. Thank you. A wonderful memory!

    Went for a friend's 40th. The restaurant were great at bringing our her birthday cake after the main course. The food and cocktails were great. Our waiter was a dream, smart, friendly and gave us great service. That was all spoilt by male member of staff, who appeared to be dressed as a member of the front of house team but was scruffy, and rudely told us we had to leave within 15 minutes. We had lost track of time so the table was needed. While we understand that we'd gone over the time, that was the first time we'd been told our booking was coming to an end and we hadn't been offered dessert. We asked him if there was time for dessert as we hadn't been asked, the member of staff said yes. When our waiter appeared a couple of minutes after, we asked again about dessert and he said we were out of time. In short he'd been sent to do the other guy's dirty work. It spoilt was was otherwise a very enjoyable experience.

    Expensive for what you get and left the restaurant still feeling hungry. Ordered a dessert which was inedible and staff initially refused to take it off the bill even though I spoke with the staff and the dessert was taken away. Ordered Steak which was good but not worth £30 on its own with no sides!

    Firstly although it was a nice touch it was having a card on arrival it was our anniversary not my birthday. My partner food was not too bad but my medium stake was boarder line well done and when asked if I wanted and my sauce I asked for red to go with my chips which never arrived so I didn’t eat my chip 2 drinks each a starter and a main £166. Value for money was shocking

    Food was mediocre to say the least, my partner ordered the salt and pepper squid to start. It was 4 tiny pieces of squid that were pretty chewy and tasteless. Best part about the starter was the mayo. Our mains were very very average and the dessert was terrible. It was some sort of chocolate stuffed doughnut and we each took a bite and put it aside which is unheard of for me as I have a big sweet tooth. It tasted like it had been in the fridge for a week. We also had 3/4 different staff members coming to the table to take orders/ask questions and they weren’t communicating with each other. So our conversation was interrupted unnecessarily over and over again, with the same questions - pretty annoying. Spent £140 for the most average experience, really disappointed as was looking forward to it. Last rant.. the drinks are SO expensive, I ordered a glass of rose and when told the options, I opted for Whispering Angel as its a favourite of mine - £17!!! for a small glass of Whispering Angel?! Absolute rip off. I savoured every sip. We then went elsewhere for more drinks and dessert.

    We visited for my birthday and were warmly greeted at reception where our coats were taken from us which made for a nice start.This does not happen very often in other places. The food was excellent and service very attentive and pleasant. Wine list was extensive , something for all tastes. . We were using a voucher I had received for afternoon tea but chose to have dinner instead. Will definitely visit again soon.

    We requested a table in the main area of the restaurant but obviously this wasn't sorted in the allocation of tables or they were too busy and no reason or communication provided. Service to begin with was very good, but our main course needed chasing as there was at least a 40 minute gap after starters and whether our order had been forgotten or not we were never told. Shame because when ever we dine in Cheltenham we always use The Ivy, maybe time for a change.

    A good evening but the wine prices are sarting to be a bt on theexpensive side. Also the new menu contains a great deal of fish which I am allergic to luckily I asked if you still had any Pate and you did so that was fine. Chip portion prices at £5.50 too high.

    Disappointing meal. We were attending event at jazz festival and were late to be seated at our table and slow to be served. Our time was limited and restaurant very busy. We had booked 7.15 table ahead of a 2100 event. my husbands medium steak when it finally arrived was overcooked. The manager deducted from the bill as there was no time to prepare another - our experience was not smooth and enjoyable. We were clock watching and anxious about time and had to chase our food. Service was good but experience overall fell short.

    This place thinks it’s better than it is. There’s loads of staff running round but no joined up thinking. It took three goes to get our table of four a correct first round of drinks and while we waited five different people asked if we were ready to order food: each time we thanked them and said we’d like to get our drinks first, please. The food is okay but again nothing special and overpriced. You could get better food, better food and better service at loads of other places within a short walking distance of this one. When asked whether we’d enjoyed our “experience”, we said the food was “okay”, but rather than asking why, the member of staff just walked away…..

    Food and service was very efficient. My only criticism is that we asked for a carafe of water by our seater, we received a bottle of mineral water which was opened and poured before I realised that it wasn’t tap water and so we had an unnecessary expense of £4.95. I obviously drank the water and paid for it!

    We had another overall great experience at the Ivy. The only upsetting thing was that we sat down and ordered almost straight away. Starters arrived after a little wait and then main course followed shortly after. We then received desert menus and before we could order we got moved to the bar because the table was needed. If we had been chatting and taking our time with every course I could understand but we simply did not have enough time to have 3 courses. This won’t put us off coming and we have actually booked to come next month again. I just hope we get longer to enjoy our food and drink before being moved on.
