    This was our first time at the Ivy. Lovely restaurant and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We put fair instead of good for service because although it was busy it was not crammed and we had a long wait for our food, around an hour for our main course. They did apologise and to be honest it was not a problem because we were not in a hurry, but if we were then this is not the place to go. We would go again as the food was good (starters better than the main course) on this occasion and we would like to try other items on the menu. The restaurant is very well laid out and tables not too close so overall a good experience. A 12.5% tip was added automatically without asking us (It says this is discretionary on the bill). Then that is not discretionary? I also thought that any tip should be applied minus the VAT. They have applied 12.5% which included the VAT price.... Something they need to review.

    Favourite place in Norwich for a bit of decadence. Excellent cocktails, wide choice of food and always top quality. Service as ever is faultless but do expect automatic 12.5% service charge. Not been since before covid and prices have been hiked a little too much in my opinion. Now costs about 20% more than pre covid. Still good but starting to question the value.

    Lovely breakfast. I had full vegetarian cooked and my husband had the full cooked breakfast. My was delicious. Husband enjoyed his too. Service was efficient and friendly. Coffee a bit in the pricey side for the size of the cups but it was very pleasant coffee.

    I'd not been to an Ivy before but heard lots of good things. I was disappointed though. The food was do poor. The worst steak I've had in a long time and that's ignoring the issues with cooking it correctly. It was just flavourless. As was the scallop starter. We had to ask for the wine to be poured (it wasn't at the table otherwise we'd do it ourselves). It's hard to find anything positive to say, unfortunately. Maybe I'll try another Ivy somewhere else, in case it's just a Norwich issue.

    Beautiful venue as you would expect from The Ivy brand. Excellent service and buzzing atmosphere. Sadly my blackened cod was slightly over cooked and therefore chewy although the flavour was great. I pointed this out to our server but there was no positive gesture by way of recompense eg perhaps a coffee on the house .

    Outstanding from start to finish We'd booked a birthday lunch on a Friday. Arrived early and as it was sunny asked to sit outside. Got the perfect seats and table Out server was world class. And I don't say that lightly. Found an off menu bottle of wine I the cellar that was like nectar. Outside seating meant we could take out time. Surprised with a complimentary birthday dessert and candle 🕯 Thank you Ivy Norwich

    It was breakfast for my Grandaughter ‘s 18th birthday. Myself my daughter and her daughter attended , running late as no parking found! Greeter was pleasant and reassuring that it wasn’t a problem. Our table was located centrally , air conditioning was on and waitress was very attentive. A gorgeous meal finished with a complimentary profiterole and sparkler made the day. Thanks and see you soon

    Very welcoming at reception. Our table was in a pleasant position. The waitress was quietly efficient which contributed to a relaxed atmosphere. The meal was excellent, beautifully presented and the portion size just right. We didn’t feel we were being hurried. I lunched with my granddaughter who stayed with me for just two days on a flying visit from New York, and our Ivy experience was a good part of that visit.

    As always we were spoilt for choice; the menu is so good. We aim to try at least one new dish each ; for me it was the goats cheese tart with the truffle sauce which was brilliant. My husband tried Malaysian fish and shrimp curry which was excellent. We had a superb service from a young man about to go to University. He was outstanding.

    Very good food. Great service (was happy to pay the added service charge on the bill) wasn’t rushed at all which sometimes happens. Small portions but very expensive though. However I did enjoy the food very much.
