    We arrived early but were still able to be seated straight away. Prompt attention from the waiter for drinks order. Great ambience and decor. Extensive drinks menu. Lovely starters. Slightly disappointed in 2 of the main courses as steak was slightly over done and poached egg on the fish cake was hard. Also a shame that all sides are charged as extras. But great experience.

    Hi, we felt that the courses were a bit rushed, it would have been better to have more of a gap between courses. The starters were good, main course ok. Ambiance very good and lovely waiter.

    I took my girls as a thank you treat and was not disappointed. I thought it may have been overrated but far from it. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. We had the breakfast menu and staff were happy to amend a couple of choices for our personal preferences. They asked if it was a special occasion and as we were away for my 60th birthday celebrations I got a special little treat! All in all a wonderful experience, thank you.

    Adding a 10% service charge without giving the option to remove. Not offering tap water. Food is over priced for what it is, and to offer a £13 bottle of wine for £46 is absolutely bonkers. Won't be returning.

    I was fortunate to receive a voucher for champagne Afternoon Tea and decided to visit The Ivy Norwich instead of a more local one. What a great decision. Everything was made to feel very special in a beautiful relaxed atmosphere. Food and service was excellent. A very special memory.

    The Table D’Hote menu is outstanding value by any measure. The Haddock Mornay was skilfully composed and the fish cooked to perfection. Paulo looked after us very well and even bought a surprise desert as it was our Wedding Anniversary. First class in every respect. We’ll be back - and soon!

    My daughter and daughter in law had afternoon tea for my daughters birthday I was unable to go due to having Covid. Daughter in law has already complained about the poor service and has been responded to but offered a £25 voucher. What good is that as she won’t want to eat alone and it will cost more money to take someone with her. We won’t recommend The Ivy to anyone again

    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 ⭐️
