Excellent menu and fantastic service. Can't recommend enough. The apple tart is absolutely superb and a bit of a show stopper.

Excellent service and great atmosphere, live music was a bonus. Could do with more vegetarian options for main dishes.

We ate from the set menu - all three courses were delicious. Service was efficient and subtle. Very pleasant ambiance. This was our second visit and we look forward to next time. The only minus is 54 steps to the toilets - 108 per visit!!

I would say that the food was really tasty but overpriced. If a friend asked for a recommendation, there are other places that I would recommend over the ivy!

Lovely place, lovely staff and lovely food but a bit pricey so for special occasions only. Over £10 for a G/T is a bit too steep for me.

We got seated in a corner.It was very uncomfortable given the place was half empty!. Asked for alternative that wasn't taken into consideration.Was rushed through our courses. Felt hassled by constant do you need something else?I am trying to savour the food.The scallops were chewy and lukewarm.not nice.The service charge added to the bill without asking is outrageous & ridiculous given the service was below par.
My husband loves the creme brulee tho.
We won't be returning.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you feel valued.
The table service was attentive and highly efficient which was accompanied by delicious food.
Yes it may be pricey but the experience clearly defines the difference between the Ivy and your average restaurant.
Highly recommended.
Looking forward to our next visit

Food was stunning but the service was absolutely terrible. We received our sides 15 mins later than mains, wine was not poured and we felt generally ignored. They gave our bread to someone else and then never apologised. Overall the food was amazing but such a shame the service does not match the quality of food or the price.

Found it wasn't comparable to fine dining independent restaurants. Felt like an expensive chain and was presumptuous by automatically adding a tip.

I booked a table online but I didn't get nice table because I loved to seat on fist floor which it has better atmosphere and close to bar,, also I do recommend playing classics music would be most lovely feeling in restaurant instead of noise people,, by the way food was fantastic, I love it,, thank you xxx

We had afternoon tea. Sandwiches were a little sparse but the desserts were lovely. Scones mediocre and when asked if everthing had been good when we mentioned one drink was horrible (beet it - overpowering ginger) we were met with no response. Don’t bother asking if you don’t really want to know I think. Overall good and I would go back.

Great place for a treat. Super decor, great service and ambience and delicious food. The live music was good too. My only disappointment was the frozen berry dessert! It was just a bit too frozen!!

Fabulous interior makes for a very special environment to eat in. Staff were attentive and polite. I had a delicious Vodka Martini to start the evening with. The meal itself was good although the lemon sole was underwhelming. The dessert menu did not inspire a choice but a generous Tia Maria and espresso made up for it. Norwich has many better restaurants. Definitely felt I was paying more for the environment than the food itself.

We had a very enjoyable Birthday Brunch meal for my Daughter’s Birthday on Saturday. Good food, and my daughters favourite dessert of Melting Chocolate Bomb, also the thoughtful little birthday treat. We were served by a lovely waitress, who was always on hand. We wish her good wishes when she has her baby. A lovely relaxing meal in lovely surroundings, we will definitely be back. Many thanks to you all.
