    Lovely decor and the waitress was very friendly. The food was great and well priced, the drinks are slightly over priced and when we asked for more drinks they took a while to appear. Overall we had a wonderful time and will definitely return.

    The waitress was lovely and the restaurant was an amazing space but we had to send one main course back as we saw the waiter handling the food when he had tipped some onto the tray and put it back on the plate. The food was also not very hot Compared to the Cambridge restaurant it was a little disappointing I’m afraid… Sorry

    Visited Norwich for my birthday booked with local friends to celebrate 🎉 we opted for the set menu food was delicious only gripe no butter or chutney on the cheese course which it definitely needed no one eats dry crackers 😳 The waitress on Tuesday evening was super lovely young girl long dark hair her name evades me what an asset think we left £15-20 tip which reflects her service … impeccable!! Definitely will return when back in the area ⭐️

    Varied menu. Portions quite small on some dishes which isn’t great for £17 you’d be expected to then purchase a side for a few of them but then others were fine (eg burger). Drinks very expensive. Food tasted pretty good! Temperature was a bit cold in there and the toilets were up 5 flights of stairs which wouldn’t be ideal for some.

    The ambience inside the restaurant is outstanding, some great modern artwork and green foliage lend a European feel. The food we had was delicious, well presented and sensibly portioned and served to us with great flair by knowledgable staff who had previously tried all of the dishes. The staff are really key to this restaurant's success. They were universally professional, cheerful and did their utmost to ensure their guests had an enjoyable evening.

    Our first time at the Ivy in Norwich and first impressions we’re how lovely everything was, friendly staff, pristine tables, relaxing atmosphere! Then our afternoon tea arrive, my goodness it was delicious, the roast chicken with truffle mayonnaise in a brioche roll was amazing! The scones were scrumptious, and the cakes if you could eat them all you’re a better person than me! Unlimited Tea and coffee and at no time did you feel rushed although I do think it was a tad expensive but then you have to splash out now and again don’t you!

    Absolutely fabulous! They have such a good selection of food and being a vegetarian there is a whole menu dedicated to us and vegans. Finally somewhere that doesn’t think the veggie option is risotto. The food was delicious and the staff are excellent. It isn’t cheap but you know you are paying for quality. Can’t wait for my next visit!

    We were seated by the main doors which proved to be quite drafty, the staff were very good in closing them when they could but a screen behind the seats would definitely help stop this problem for future dinners,
