    It was our first experience of The Ivy Oxford, we were warmly welcomed, and shown to our table by a charming young lady, the waiter who looked after us was knowledgable and answered all questions, an asset to The Ivy…. Only one question….. why is it impossible to shake salt from the salt cellar ?

    Everything about our dining experience was superlative. My only criticism is of the noise level. The DJ had the music turned up a bit too loud. You had to talk over the music to be heard. Other than that, it was great. I actually prefer this Oxford location to the one in Soho.

    We had an amazing lunch for my birthday, our server was very helpful and was able to aid with my dairy intolerance by suggesting dishes I could have. Food was so nice as expected with plenty of choice to suit all of our party.

    I hadn’t been to The Ivy before so didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t disappointed, nor were my guests from Rome. We were bowled over with the decor on arrival and then the kind and attentive staff who looked after us. The food we had was really delicious. I would certainly recommend The Ivy. I can’t wait to make a return visit.

    We went to the Ivy for my partner’s birthday. We had such a wonderful experience that we went back for the second time. The last time they surprised us with a piece of cake with inscription Happy birthday. This time I asked for a good table but we got a busy part of the restaurant. We ordered the three course menu. There was only tiny pieces of duck in my main meal and the cheese dessert had two tiny pieces of cheese. Service charged was added on to the bill rather than giving customers options to pay or how much. Quite disappointed this time with the overall experience.

    We were a table of three for dinner on Thursday 4th August. The dining room is beautifully designed and decorated with all of the nice fabrics, colours and ambiance that you would expect from The Ivy. The reception were efficient and charming and you are welcomed nicely and made to feel at home. First slight glitch was the sommelier who took our order for a bottle of Nyetimber sparkling - nothing appeared for quite a while and she returned some time later with a puzzled expression telling us that she couldn't remember what kind of 'beer' we'd asked for. After a chat with someone else, the correct bottle turned up and it was, as usual, delicious. We also had a tough job explaining what 'chassagne montrachet' was, which I'd have expected them to know. Crispy tempura prawns were excellent as was a nice portion of crispy squid, dry, firm, tender and dressed and presented beautifully in a twisted white napkin. One plate of the signature shepherd's pie was also very good. Two rib-eye steaks, ordered medium-rare, instead came extremely well done and frankly grey and chewy. As rib-eye has some marbling of fat, a longer cooking time is needed to render the fat into the meat, but these seem to have been put on the grill and forgotten, which was not great at £33 a pop. Service was not especially attentive throughout the dinner and it was quite hard to attract attention. I fear that the popularity of this place is causing a bit of complacency to take root: the operation is not nearly so slick here as it is at the branch in Cheltenham.

    We had such an enjoyable breakfast. My daughter was made to feel very special as it was her 21st birthday. Couldn't fault the food and I thought it was very comparable for value to other places I'd looked at. We were not hurried at all and enjoyed every minute. Thank you. Cocktails looked at tasted great too.

    Food, as always, is delicious, service was quite poor. It was quiet and well staffed but service was very slow, inattentive and they needed reminding about everything from menus to drinks just trying to catch someone’s eye was hard. So a shame really as the food and drink was excellent and the environment is pleasant.

    I had received a gift voucher for a special birthday for an afternoon cream tea for 2 so myself and my husband and son went to Oxford to celebrate. We were prepared to order something for our son but the waiting staff were very happy for us to share it between the 3 of us which worked out well as there was so much! We are quite picky eaters when it comes to sandwich fillings and they were very accommodating in providing just plain chargrilled chicken sandwiches which were delicious and the variety of cakes were delicious and I could eat the lemon curd all day long!!! The waiting staff were very friendly, smartly dressed and attentive and the service overall was excellent. The restaurant is also air con’d which is very welcome with the current warm weather and now being a woman of a certain age! Thank for for a lovely family celebration treat and we will definitely be back.
