The Ivy on the Square
The restaurant features a Parisian-style outdoor terrace and a bar, offering tranquil relaxed yet sophisticated dining just a stone’s throw from Princes Street.
The restaurant, staff and meal were exceptional. We had fantastic experience and the service was matched only by the quality of the food. Got more than we paid for in terms of overall value for money so would highly recommend to anyone.
Our waiter Danielé was superb and a credit to your establishment.
From start to finish the service and food was amazing! Great vegetarian and vegan options.
Myself and my husband were delighted with service from start to finish and glad we chose The Ivy to celebrate our Anniversary would highly recommend for any occasion
My favourite restaurant and I love taking friends there
The food is great and delicious
I love the cocktails
The staff are very professional and so helpful and polite
Excellent service and food from start to finish.
Had a lovely anniversary meal on Sunday. The food was amazing and first class service. I don’t mind paying a bit mor for good quality. I will be back again😄
I ordered a burger with no bun as I require gluten free. The burger was provided with gluten free bread - a burger sandwich essentially. It would have been nice to have a toasted gluten free bun.
The food was delicious but a point to consider for future.
Food a bit disappointing - ribeye narly and tough sirloin medium rare came well done
Good experience here. Food very nice, we ate here on Sunday lunchtime with the kids who also enjoyed the food. There were a number of measures for Covid implemented which was reassuring.
Brilliant food and service was excellent. Couldn’t fault anything!
Fantastic food and great service. Overall a very comfortable dining experience.
Very poor burger served to my husband which was a shame, seems like a meal that should be easy to get right. Burnt and not great tasting anyway. Cocktails were also decidedly average. My bang bang salad and main meal of cod were delicious but overall this place does not live up to its reputation. The service was efficient and polite though, and it was nice to be out again after so many months!
Service and food never disappoints. Very impressed as always. Food is outstanding, we’ve never had a bad meal there.
Food was good however was very disappointed with 20% service charge added to a table of 2 people.
Food was very tasty and nice and hot when it came out. Portion sizes very good. Service couldn’t be faulted from the moment we were greeted. Drinks slightly expensive but about the price you expect to pay in central Edinburgh. The staff were doing everything they could to ensure social distancing guidelines were adhered too without compromising on the service. Thoroughly enjoyable meal and would definitely recommend.
Fantastic service in a lovely restaurant Food was great also
Temperature taken on arrival, staff wearing PPE & hand sanitizers on each table.
Food delicious & staff very professional & friendly.
It was our Sons 21st birthday and the service was exceptional. The young waitress was brilliant.
Fantastic atmosphere and lovely food. Celebrated my birthday here and would really recommend it.
More social distancing restrictions would be great to see.
We have been to this Ivy before. It is always great, the food is of a very high standard and the service is excellent.
We were pleased that the atmosphere was still mostly as it always was pre COVID. We were surprised to be given menus which were used by others. We have found that most places use disposable menus or QR CODES. The choice was as good as ever. The waiter was very attentive. We are used to being given glasses etc and then left to serve our own wine which involves less possible contamination. The bottle of hand sanitiser on the table was a good idea, as was the cleaning of tables and chairs between guests. All is all we enjoyed our celebration and will return.
The team made our experience very memorable and gave us fantastic service. The food was amazing and enjoyed by all! Would definitely recommend.
Lovely atmosphere and really friendly staff. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff really went the extra mile. We’ve been a few times now and will definitely be coming again.
Great food , great atmosphere
Always great food, excellent service and really nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
We loved the Ivy, the atmosphere was great, the staff were very pleasant and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend the Ivy on the square to all my friends visiting Edinburgh.
Always have great dining experience at The Ivy! Food and service is first class and the cocktails are amazing.
It was our first visit and it did not disappoint. Great food, great service and great evening celebrating our anniversary.
The food was good, the service was excellent, the covid measures were discreet but appropriate, the drink prices were only to be expected but overall an enjoyable evening out. The courses felt a bit rushed but sadly that is par for the course these days when restaurants are keen to have as many sittings as possible.
Lovely evening, great food and made to feel very special by staff.
Lovely place but the food is over priced and service charge added without any customer consent.
Gorgeous food and amazing service !
Only thing was we weren’t carrying cash and didn’t have the option to leave tip on the card machine which we were disappointed about
The ivy is such a lovely place would def recommend. Food is amazing
Lovely food not as expensive as I though it would be. Will definitely go again
Fantastic food and service, attentive but not over bearing. Food delicious
Fantastic service, fantastic food. Best meal I have had ever probably! The waitress who served us and other waiters were fantastic. So quick!!
We had a brilliant evening in The Ivy on the Square! Perfect table, food amazing and service top notch! Can not wait to return!!
Nice restaurant, food was ok, server wasn’t the most friendly!
As always food was fantastic, as were the cocktails and great friendly service too. Mum and I loved our Ivy experience. Thank you
