    Really nice place and the food was generally good. A bit pricey, the steak was over-cooked and a service charge was automatically applied for a table of two which were the only bad points.

    Disappointed. I was there alone for afternoon tea. I had been to The Ivy London and had a lovely experience. This time, I was nearly ignored. Had to ask for my tea multiple times. When it finally arrived, it was the wrong tea. Person who first took my order never came back to the table. A kind young man, another server, had to finish up with me. He was so kind and none of it was his fault. Truly disappointed in an event I was eagerly anticipated.

    The place itself is amazing. We got a full Scottish breakfast but we didn’t get our sausage. The hostess was lovely but there was a bit of a snobby man that didn’t really want to seem to help you in anyway. Had a lovely experience, but I don’t think I would ever go back

    Lovely place for an experience however very overpriced and having service charge of 12.5% added to the bill was quite shocking as some of us cannot afford to have these treats and I always leave a tip within my means of affordability I don’t deny a tip but having it added is just a little off putting of the whole experience of dining out. Fair enough if you have a table of 6 and up as I used to waitress and I know you work hard especially for the larger tables. Also why is an establishment such as Ivy not paying their staff a decent wage? Plus adding it to the bill so it is taken by the establishment and not directly to the person who is serving you I have experienced first hand large establishments pocketing this and staff not getting the tip they worked for. So won’t be back I am afraid even though was lovely this just puts me right off.
