    Did not appreciate that we were on time yet the table was not ready and so we were forced to sit at the bar and spend additional on drinks.

    The Ivy Edinburgh was a nice experience. We went for my husband's birthday. The food was lovely. I had the sea bass with shrimp sauce, mash and sea greens. My husband had coconut and chicken curry with rice. We both enjoyed our main meal. For desert we had the selection of cheeses, crackers, grapes and chutney which was enjoyed. As it was my husband's birthday he was also given a little complimentary birthday profiterol with a candle and happy birthday chocolate. What a nice touch. The only complaint is that it is very busy (5pm Saturday) and a little crammed as tables are very close together.

    Wonderful evening. Always fun dining at the Ivy. Our waiter was exceptional, lovely guy from South Africa ( sorry forgotten his name) very attentive. We loved our table the atmosphere was great. Food really tasty. I always order the same! Chicken Milanese my favourite. Starter Duck Salad….amazing flavoursome dish, I’d recommend! It was my partners 60th so we were surprised by a celebration dessert plate which was very special, thank you staff.
