    Far too noisy need to put some dampening measures in place otherwise we were shouting across the table. Apart from that wonderful, food was hot, well presented and very good, some great meal choices very innovative, Waitress was unobtrusive but always nearby to help out, it was never difficult getting attention of waitress. Once the noise issue is dealt with this restaurant will be top of our list in Norfolk.

    The lady who served us was lovely, I didn’t get her name but she had dark red hair and she was looking after us on the 1st floor. Decor was amazing and we loved the rib eye in the bone. Me and partner enjoyed eating here so much we forgot about time and stayed for about 3 hours dining. Service was exceptional and we would definitely come again for a special occasion :)

    Second time in Norwich Ivy but have eaten in several in London. The food is always consistent; the verdejo on your wine list is excerllent and the service from Saskioa was first class. Well done on your training scheme. The only criticism is that you dont allow your cheeses to breathe before serving, especially the cheddars.

    We stopped for breakfast and it was heavenly. Amazing service and amazing food. My only feedback is that I prefer not to have service charges added to my bill so I may make my own decision on tipping. The service warranted a tip absolutely but I just prefer not to have it added

    Rib eye steak was supposed to be medium rare but was unevenly cooked and generally medium. It was quite chewy and not very tasty. Yoke on egg on Chicken Milanese was not runny enough. We only understood there were specials when the table next to ours were offered the choice. We had already ordered by this point. The food was warm only. The service was fairly slow but the staff were extremely polite and helpful.

    Our first evening and we found it so much noisier then lunch times. Service was not great, we waited a long time for drinks and had to ask on a number of occasions. I did not like the fact the wine was not left at the table, hence we had to ask for top ups. Food was great, we were surprised to see the same menu as lunch time and no noticeable change in three years!

    Always had good experiences in The Ivy but this time, we ordered a bottle of wine which they didn’t have, which is fine, but they came and asked what we wanted instead but then forgot about us, by the time they remembered, our drinks didn’t arrive until half way through eating our mains and it was only a gin and a glass of wine. We ordered a steak medium rare and it turned up medium well done although it was still tasty. Other than that, the food was delicious, especially the sticky toffee pudding and the staff, very friendly.
