Absolutely outstanding service from start to finish. Food was delicious and beautifully served. The interior was plush and exquisite. The only slight negative was we found it rather noisy, with the restaurant busy the music could have been turned down a couple of notches. However a wonderful evening and I cannot praise the staff enough for their hardwork.
The food was really great. Best meal I have had for ages. Staff were really helpful.
It was a bit noisy, but generally the quality of the food made up for it. Can’t wait to go again.
Service very good. Food very tasty. Wine list extensive but very pricy
Food was amazing! Staff friendly and provided discreet efficient service. Overall a most amazing experience. Thank you.
Excellent atmosphere, Great service. Good food. Good choice on menu
It was our first visit to The Ivy and it was wonderful. Staff were very friendly and attentive, nothing seemed too much trouble and the food was very good. We will definitely be back.
Catch up with friends and was the first visit there for most of us. No one was disappointed. Meal was lovely, cocktails so good and friendly and helpful staff. Will def return.
This was my first time at The Ivy for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. It was one of the best meals I have had, service impeccable and our evening was made very special by the staff as well. I enjoyed it that much I am hoping to have my 50th birthday meal there with my family later in the year. Superb venue, food and staff - cannot fault at all. Thank you The Ivy!
Had a wonderful meal (yet again!) at Ivy Norwich. The staff are always so helpful and polite, really make you feel at ease. Our waiter asked if we were celebrating and we said yes because we hadn’t seen each other since before the pandemic and they then brought us a large profiterole with congrats and a candle on! The extra touch was so sweet!
Staff were welcoming and the atmosphere was lovely.
Fabulous food, quality was exceptional and the service was the best we’ve had. Made our visit to Norwich a real memory. Gl if you get chance.
I do not usually leave bad reviews but yesterday night was extremely disappointing.
We were sat on a table, drinks took a while even though the cocktails were good. The food order was taken after a while. We had some starters and unfortunately the plates were still on the table when the mains arrived so we had our plates on our hands while we were served the mains. Once we finished the mains we were waiting for the plates to be taken off the table but after some time even though we wanted to go for desserts, we decided to ask for the bill because we waited long enough and we haven’t been considered. I expected something more especially in a restaurant that is charging for 12.5% of service charge. On top of that, it was my best friend birthday and it wasn’t special as we fought it would have been.
We had a lovely birthday celebration dinner at The Ivy in Norwich. We had amazing attentive staff, wonderful food and atmosphere. We definitely recommend it and will be going back again.
Super food. Excellent service. Comfortable and quirky surroundings. My first visit to the Ivy, but definitely not the last.
The Ivy was a delight, beautifully decorated and comfortable to be in. From being taken to our seats to the service throughout the meal the staff team were attentive and polite without being overly present at the table.
Very enjoyable lunch
Fantastic lunch at The Ivy, Norwich.
Decadence and delicious food. Staff very attentive and friendly.
We’ll be back again.
Lovely attentive staff despite the resturant being full.
The music was to loud to hear each other clearly - we had a table for 6 so quite spread out around a large oval table although noise level got better as the night wore on and other dinners left. Service excellent and attetion to detail. Two guests had burgers they thought that the meat was to undercooked and not quite right at the time (we should have said something at the time), both were sick later that night - possibly a coincidence?
They had similiar starters to the rest of the party who were fine. The main course fish dishes were excellent as was the vegetarian.
Our ocassion was a 21st birthday - the pre-ordered prosecco arrived as scheduled - thank you. Birthday cake at the end of the evening a really nice touch- thank you again.
Delicious food, vibrant restaurant, excellent service, had a great evening
We have been to many of the Ivy Brasseries and the standard of food has been consistently good. Unfortunately the Ivy Norwich Brasserie did not achieve the same standard. The starter of Crispy Duck Salad was tasty. However I chose the Monkfish and Prawn curry as a main course and this was not at all enjoyable. It would have been difficult to know that the little pieces of tough fish were in fact Monkfish and the few prawns included were small and overcooked. Plus one of our side orders did not arrive with the main course and had to be requested again. The chocolate bombe was to standard.
The restaurant was very busy but given the prices charged I think it reasonable to expect a uniformity of standard. This was not the case.
Lovely place to celebrate hubby’s birthday . Lovely quality food ,lovely summer cocktails , lovely service and ambiance.. cannot fault anything
Excellent 1st visit to The Ivy - The service was fantastic and food amazing, my only "mmmmm" is they add12.5% service charge to the bill, so where as I would have given the excellent waiter £10 tip which assume would go to all the staff they add on 12.5% automatically
Couldn’t fault the service or food… just a shane a family next to us had unruly children which was unfortunate …
I had the Prawn Cocktail , Chicken Salad and Rum Bhaba . My husband had Duck Salad, Cod the Special menu and the Dinosaur Egg which was the special as well . Every course was lovely , the service was amazing and so attentive . I cannot fault anything about our visit . We will definitely be returning.
Absolutely fantastic service, beautifully laid tables, incredible food. Love it here!
Great food and drinks and attentive staff. Would recommend.
Excellent service and delicious food. Staff were very friendly and atmosphere was great
Wonderful restaurant food was TDF
All the staff were very efficient.
The decor is fab.
We had a gr8 time
Brilliant service, Extremely welcoming. Great food.
Greated by very friendly FOH. Waiting staff very efficient. Feel that dishes are a bit overpriced for food received. Restaurant is very noisy and tables too close together really. Not happy about paying set service charge of 12% ...should be left to customer to decide. Afraid, not going to rush back as had better in fine dining restaurants closer to home.
Love this place, fantastic service, amazing cocktails and great food
Fantastic meal! With a huge thank you Melinda who was super helpful and friendly from the offset. The Ivy Norwich are very lucky to have her!
Great service and great food . All the staff were very helpful and friendly
Great meal, service was amazing and food to die for!
Wonderful bussy fun atmosphere, beautifully decorated, excellent friendly staff, excellent vegetarian menu. Fun mocktails. We will be back again.
The service, quality of food and ambience are all excellent at the Ivy Norwich, we were looked after very well, the only downside is the cost, which does seem excessive especially on the drinks. For a special occasion it was a good choice.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience as always. The service is always excellent - properly friendly and personable, not just going through the motions - the food is super and the ambience is spot-on. A bit on the pricy side but I guess that's to be expected. Overall a wonderful experience and our favourite place for a special night out.
Really enjoyed the Ivy experience. The staff were all amazing and saw to all our needs. The main course steak tartare was excellent but let down by the accompanying chips. Starter was scallops, but again it was let down as it felt like it had waited around to come out. Desert, chocolate bomb was fantastic. All small points that could be fixed really easily and would definitely not stop me going again.
Perfect late lunch at the Ivy. Friendly, attentive service from start to finish. Great value set menu. excellent food.
will be back !
Lovely, calming yet interesting atmosphere. Amazing food and excellent service. A wonderful couple of hours!
Went out for our anniversary, food was delicious, service was great, we had a great time thanks.
