    I took my friend as an 80th birthday treat as she’d never eaten at The Ivy before. She was delighted with the whole occasion and was so touched when the staff brought out a dessert with a sparkler in to mark the occasion.

    We were greeted with a warm and welcoming smile by the receptionist upon entry! Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive throughout, never too pushy but frequently making sure that we (my wife and I) were satisfied! The food was very delicious and well presented. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

    ON ARRIVAL WE WERE PLEASANTLY GREETED AND SHOWN TO OUR TABLE. THE TABLE APPEARED TO BE BETWEEN TWO PILARS WHICH WE REALISED MUST BE A WALK WAY. THE OVERCROWDING WAS RIDICULOUS AND THE NOISE LEVEL WAS ALSO RIDICULOUS AND WERE WERE UNABLE TO HOLD A CONVERSATION. THE SERVICE WAS ADEQUATE BUT THE FOOD WAS NOT. THERE WERE NO INTERVALS BETWEEN THE COURSES AND WE WERE OUT IN AN HOUR!! THE FOOD WAS MEDIOCRE AS BEST. ONE OF US HAD STEAK ON A PLATE, LITERALLY, SO NO POINTS FOR PRESENTATION AND ONE OF US HAD CHICKEN IN BREADCRUMBS - TASTELESS. THINK THE CHEF WAS NOT A FAN OF SEASONING OR TASTE. OVERALL WE WERE EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED AS THIS WAS OUR 40TH WEDDING ANNIVERSAY AND WE WERE TOLD THAT THIS WAS THE PLACE TO GO TO CELEBRATE. SO WE PAID £184 FOR A VERY POOR EXPERIENCE. HOWEVER, WE WENT ON TO THE CROWN IN LYNDHURST THE FOLLOWING EVENING AND HAD ONE OF THE BEST MEALS AND WE'VE EATEN IN SOME VERY FINE RESTUARANTS. SO TO SUM IT UP. NOT WORTH THE MONEY, NOT GOOD FOOD AND NOT A VERY NICE EXPERIENCE.
    The Ivy Oxford BrasserieResponded 1 day ago
    Thank you for your feedback. We're very sorry that your 40th wedding anniversary was not as special as it should have been. We apologize for the discomfort of your seating arrangement, the noise level, and the rushed service. It's clear that our food did not meet your expectations, and we regret the disappointment. Your experience does not reflect our usual standards, and we are addressing these issues with our team. Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention.
