    Overall we had a very enjoyable evening at The Ivy Oxford. The decor, ambience and service were generally perfect. My only slight negative comment would be that there was some kind of mixup with the order so there was a 10 minute delay in serving all plates for the main course to our party. Also, after asking for a 'glass of rose' there was no mention of the price which after 2 of these, appeared on the bill at £14.75 each which seems a tad expensive.

    First time I have eaten at the Ivy Brasserie. Overall very good - food, ambiance, decor and service good. Perhaps a little more than we would normally pay but worth it for the special atmosphere.

    I went there for a family meal for my 40th. My parents had never been before and absolutely loved it, as did i. The food was amazing but we did struggle a little with my niece who is only 10 and a coeliac so she had to have something from the adults menu but apart from that it was all really good.

    Excellent service in a lovely restaurant. The food was delicious. Lovely atmosphere with music in the background. Definitely somewhere to visit for a special occasion. Hope you get our waiter Janssen. He was so attentive. Gave advice on the menu and made a fuss of my friend whose birthday we were celebrating. Thank you Janssen

    I am afraid we will not be returning to The Ivy any time soon. There were far to many tables rammed into this restaurant . It felt over crowded and much too noisy , private conversation was impossible .

    Exceptional service, food and ambience to have some lunch on a city break! Our waitress was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed, her attention to detail was brilliant! The food was very tasty and worth the money. After having a poor experience of the Ivy in our home town, it was really nice to have the Ivy experience and have our confidence restored in the company! Thank you They Ivy, Oxford - we have a great time visiting Oxford and having lunch at the Ivy added to a great city break!

    Excellent food off current Set Menu. Very good value, polite and precise service. Very welcoming: I was meeting an old friend , with a lot to talk about, and there was no sense of being rushed. Will certainly visit again. Great addition to Oxford restaurant scene (much needed, because there's not that much choice for such a large city).

    We went for my boyfriend birthday and were seated towards the side of the restaurant on a table for two. Food came out very quick and was very good quality. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. And the birthday plate for my boyfriend was very well recieved. The only down side was the positioning of the table, whilst other diners sat on tables for 4 more central, we were by the side near a waiter station. Aside from that was a very love evening!
