Went today for our wedding anniversary it was Excellent food and service. Thank you to the executive chef and brigade and to all of the excellent front of house team.
However one regular guest made it uncomfortable for my wife and other female guests!
Would recommend. Was lovely. Staff incredible!! Nice dinner date
The food was fantastic and the overall experience was outstanding

Fantastic food and service as usual, thank you!
Staff are excellent and friendly. Service is so good. The toilets are spotless and smell lovely and fresh.
We had a lovely dinner there. The food and service were perfect. The decor is beautiful. A great evening
Fantastic birthday meal
We received a lovely welcome and were taken to our table upstairs. We had a French martini and an orange g&t. I ordered a shepherds pie and my friend ordered salmon fish cake , both were excellent. Our waiter ( his first week ) was attentive but not too much. We had time between each course which didn’t feel pressured. Be mindful there is a 10% service charge which we were unaware of but didn’t mind paying. We would certainly return and recommend it to anyone thinking of celebrating a special occasion or not
the waiter that served us was one if the most ploute and professional people ive met, very very impressed with how he treated us, and the food was also on another level from the returaunts in the surrounding area
Food very good value, service impeccable. I accidentally dropped a dish and was amazed with the grace it was dealt with, first class. Would definitely recommend
Very nice atmosphere service was great. I’d say the sea bass special was over priced and not very good but the rest was excellent. Would go again.
Great meal and great service. Venue was lovely inside and all staff were welcoming. Our server was very attentive and made our visit great.
I had a date day lunch with my Husband. It was nice and quiet. The food was great and we both enjoyed all courses. The service was amazing, every single person working in this restaurant were so happy and all nice and attentive. Would definitely recommend.
The food was average. We were celebrating a 60th birthday and was told one of our party couldn’t join us - yet there were lots of tables available. Our reservation was changed from 11:30 to 13:00 by the Ivy. The staff were apologetic - but not enough. It was a bit of a disaster. I won’t be back
Lovely lunch thoroughly enjoyed .. my friends first time at ivy and she loved it
Fantastic meal, even brought over a birthday pudding.
Food was good couldn't fault it and service really good
Had the fish and my partner had the fillet steak both amazing...in fact nicest steak he's had.
Had a lovely time at the ivy, the prices are a bit on the high side but having said that the service is outstanding. We’ve been a few times and will definitely return.
Great ambience, brilliant service - top quality service without it feeling intrusive or ostentatious. Lovely place for a special treat meal out.
