    As a coeliac I have previously felt very confident ordering food at The Ivy Oxford, however on this occasion I did not feel comfortable that sufficient care had been taken to ensure my food was gluten free. Previously, my food has been brought out separately and highlighted that it is gluten free, which gives me reassurance that the food has been prepared separately to avoid cross-contamination with triggering foods.

    We love the Ivy brasseries and this was the third one we have tried. We weren’t disappointed! The decor is so different, vibrant and very botanical while the service and food is excellent. We thought the fixed lunch menu was a good price with good portions. We were spending the day out in Oxford with our friends and celebrating two birthdays. The Ivy staff made them feel extra special by giving them both an extra dessert with a candle and happy birthday message. It was such a good day and I would highly recommend a visit here.

    I found the noise level high and being slightly deaf found a lack of tolerance from our waitress. The waiter we had later was much more understanding. Food was good but not exceptional atmosphere was great. Enjoyed the evening and will definitely go again

    The ambiance and decor here is great and help turn a visit into an occasion. Some of the items on the menu contain unusual combinations of ingredients that the ordinary cook is unlikely the think of, and they work. As regards value for money, many gastro pubs are now as dear or more expensive but without the attention to detail and the caring service that the staff of the Oxford Ivy offer.

    We went to The Ivy for a celebration lunch after my daughter’s graduation. The staff looked after us so well and the service was fantastic. The food and cocktails were all delicious. There was a nice surprise of a pudding with congratulations which was much appreciated. Overall a great experience.

    This was to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday which we had noted when we made the reservation. When we arrived this was acknowledged which is always when this happens. However, from that moment on there was no mention or acknowledgment from any other member of staff. We were served by the head waitress who made no effort to smile or mention any special celebration. In fact she was rather cold. There were also other tables celebrating as desserts were brought out with a celebratory candle in and the diners could sing and clap. We too ordered a dessert for the table but there was literally nothing. The Ivy is a restaurant where people go quite often for a special occasion. Sadly I feel we were over looked and it could have been so easily avoided with a simple smile and a candle. Come on Ivy Oxford…this was a small detail which made the overall experience a little disappointing.
