Really great food and service as you would expect. Been trying to get there for ages but have struggled to get a table that worked for us. Evening was lovely with great ambiance.

Really enjoyed going to The Ivy. The atmosphere is great, especially if you are in the seating area around the bar. It’s lively and vibrant and adds to the experience. The food was very tasty. I had the fillet of beef which I love and have had it on numerous occasions. This time it was a little over seasoned and a bit salty for my taste, but still cooked to perfection as I like my steak rare. As lovely as it is though, I think it is on the expensive side. Doesn’t stop me going semi regularly though, so all on all, really enjoyed the experience

Lovely dining experience overall, but the lobster linguine was sub par. Both my mother and I ordered the lobster linguine and the lobster was chewy.

Had the best evening celebrating finding out we are having a little boy.

The food was fantastic and the portion sizes are so good, great value for money. Love the atmosphere and the beautiful decoration.

We were served by Emma J who was such a lovely girl who didn't rush us, helped us with ordering and was absolutely incredible with her service skills. I could not believe that she had only been working there for 3 weeks! She also was very sweet by handing us a chocolate profiterole as a celebratory treat!

Thank you so much to Emma and everyone who served us. We had a brilliant evening and will be back soon!

My wife and I invited close friends to lunch at The Ivy. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. Our friends were very impressed as well.
Our waiter a super young man couldn't have been more helpful.
There was a varied choice on the menu and quality of food first class.
We will defently come back again.

The food was bland didn’t taste like it had been seasoned …. The fish had extremely thick uncooked batter which was a shame … chips cold.
The steak was bland all in all very expensive for Luke warm food. Didn’t get asked why all the food was left very disappointing

Lovely place for a meal on a special occasion. Staff were very accommodating and service was excellent. However beware of the service charge as it was a little pricy.

The restaurant was quite full but very few of the staff were wearing masks, which was a bit disconcerting. However, they were all very attentive and we had a lovely meal.

The food was quite simply exceptional. Cooked to perfection and plenty of choice. The staff were very attentive - I put on the booking that it was my wife's birthday and they acknowledged that on arrival and even brought a surprise desert to the table at the end of the meal. Made for a brilliant birthday for her!

Amazing food & excellent service. From the greeter at the door to the waiting staff, they could not have been better . We were given a free desert with a happy anniversary chocolate as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Such a lovely thought.

Lovely plants outside. Welcoming and informed staff, knew of Birthday and GF.
Polite waitress and waiter.
Wonderful decor.
Nice discreet touch for the birthday girl in shape of cake with candle.
Music a little too load and not of our taste. Do diners need it?
Lock on Ladies far right loo not working and one of the soap dispensers either blocked or empty.
Will dine in Montpellier Ivy again.
Thank you.

Our first time at this particular Ivy but this was notably good. Excellent food, well presented and the two servers we encountered were great - Matt and Grace were attentive, efficient and had personalities that were warm yet still unobtrusive!

Probably the most disappointing fish and chips I’ve had in a while.. too much batter, dry fish and chips that were like oven chips.

For what you are paying, I feel there are too many tables on top of one another which takes away from the experience. The food was good but not outstanding...again, higher expectations due to the prices charged. A special mention though for outstanding service from a school leaver, Charlie, whose service and attention to detail was exceptional, beyond her limited years of experience.

Beautiful place and kind customer service. Feel like since I was last there the food has lost its special touch. Had the burger but the meat was very dry, as well as unexciting. Overpriced for what it was.
