To be honest we were a little disappointed with the table on the roof garden it was very crowded and noisy service was slow some of the food was overcooked. However our waitress was bright and bubbly and couldn't do enough for us a shining star on a celebratory day which didn't reach expectation and had looked forward to for so long.

This was a special occasion for us (daughter’s graduation) and the Ivy Rooftop was the perfect venue. The service was generally very attentive and excellent. However, the food service was very slow - it took around a full hour before our main courses were served which was unfortunate as our time was limited and we were then in a rush to leave.
We would still recommend and return another day as the food is beautifully presented and prepared.

We booked a table at 1.45 around 10 days in advance. We were not seated until approx 2.35pm. The staff were very friendly and we were constantly appologised to. We were told that as the weather was sunny many people had chosen to dine there. As we had pre booked I find that totally unacceptable. We were sat by the door and felt 'squeezed in'. We had booked as a family to celebrate daughters graduation, and had to make alternative transport arrangements. A bottle of wine was sent to the table which we did not request and when the bill came we were charged for it. This was rectified. the overall setting was beautiful, and the food was outstanding. For this reason I would visit again, but not for a special occasion, due to unreliability.

Really nice place to visit and the food was excellent. My only criticism is that where we ate on the roof terrace it is a little too crammed with tables and seating, as if they have tried to fit too many tables in there to maximise customers. you need to walk sideways at times to fit past people already eating

Beautiful setting and great drink selection.
Menu did not have a great choice so maybe visit for drinks and a few appetizers and then move on to a different place for dinner.
Good to visit for drinks and you Instagram.

I'd never been on a Saturday night before and it was louder music wise than other nights but fortunately we were sat at the far end of the restaurant so it was a bit quieter but still a bit loud for a romantic meal! Other than that, the food, service and environment was excellent as always.

It was just OK. Nothing special, we ordered drinks and every time it took about 10-15 mins for them to arrive. They add a 12.5% service charge on as well so I’d definitely expect better service than that. It’s a lovely place and the food was just ok nothing extra special really. We wouldn’t go back in a hurry.

Not very impressed with the evening.
The servers, I suggest are encouraged to recommend 'The Special' because it is the most expensive item on the menu and the server is on 12.5% of the bill as service charge.
The lemon sole was terrible to be honest.
What was the most annoying thing was the pretentious snobs strutting around.
Definitely not worth the £150 I spent for the two of us.

My husband and I went for lunch at the roof garden for our anniversary. We were made to feel so welcome by every member of staff who were friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is amazing, very opulent. The food was lovely and the cocktails. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend.

It was a lovely way to celebrate our son’s graduation. You accommodated an extra guest on the night although in a phone conversation 2 weeks earlier you couldn’t, which seemed strange but we were very thankful. The restaurant was lovely but staff were incredibly stretched and our meal took a long time to arrive. Roger was a great waiter and explained you were short staffed. We would recommend again and visit again because the overall experience was truly magical.

Service was pretty poor and the lobster linguine was a let down for the price! Made our views clear to the management and they offered us complimentary drinks on our next visit which I thought was a nice gesture! Having been to the ivy in Harrogate this wasn’t as pleasant an experience but hopefully our next visit will be better!
