    My experience at the ivy roof garden was amazing overall. The food was fresh and on point. The atmosphere and the decor was beautiful and elegant. Service was quick. My only criticism is that the tables and chairs was alittle cramped and too crowded. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    Whilst the food was lovely unfortunately the service was diabolical. However in fairness the manager removed the service charge from our bill and we did receive complimentary wine. They acknowledged without question that our service had been well below par so I have to applaud them for this. I would go back again because the food and ambiance remain good.

    We visited The Ivy Roof Garden on 7th August to celebrate my birthday. We were a party of 5 including 1 child. The food and service were absolutely perfect. The choices were amazing and the quality of the food was outstanding. We weren’t rushed at all and the staff were very attentive, even down to engaging with my 5 year old grandson. And to top it off I received a beautiful complimentary choux pastry with a handmade chocolate disc. Perfect finish to a perfect afternoon.

    Nice food and decent service, but for the name and the price, I would have expected exceptional food and service. Loud and vibrant atmosphere, which I'm sure suits some people, but I was expecting a more refined dining experience, rather than having to shout across the table to each other. Wouldn't recommend for a quiet, romantic mesl. Starters were gorgeous but, while the main courses were good, I would compare the quality to "Jamie's Italian" - Good, but not worth the money

    The room and ambiance was lovely and the service spot on, the menu is somewhat limited and we did not realise that gratuities were included, not that I would have disputed them as the service was good but it would be nice to know. Altogether a 4 out of 5

    Very welcoming. Good service. Ordered afternoon tea. Couldn’t eat it all. Offered a box to take cakes home. Wasn’t given chocolate deserts to take home as they weren’t in take out pots. If we’d known, we would have eaten them. Given a cake with a candle as celebrating a special birthday. Lovely gesture. Overall, would rebook.

    Ridiculously noisy. Could not hear ourselves speak. Had tepid bottled water foisted on us at £4.75. No option of table water offered. Constantly disturbed by staff with trolleys and buckets going past the table. Table for 2 extremely cramped and on busy walkway. Sourdough, zucchini fritti excellent. Goats cheese tart starter mediocre - pastry soggy bottom not much goats cheese. Minute steak amazing. Monkfish and prawn curry left most of this. Monkfish spongey and tasteless, mushy vegetables and detected just 2 prawns. Overrated. Also charged £8 service charge which I would have asked to be removed had I realised. Ivy Victoria 100 times better.

    The ivy was a nice place to go for dinner and we loved our visit My review would have been better if the service was a bit sharper. When we arrived our table wasn't ready and when we asked for the bill at the end it wasn't brought and I had to ask again about 20 mins later. When we needed another drink we had to be trying to get the waiters attention etc. To say how expensive it is and the fact that a 10% service charge is added to the bill (which for us was just under £23 , I felt the service could have been better. Food was very nice. Would be better if there was a better dessert choice for vegans.

    The service was poor. Staff need training up. Our server brought shepherds pie and forgot the chips. They arrived half way through the meal. I told them to remove the service charge and the chips. They should have said that to me! Hawksmoor service is impeccable. The Ivy is on its way to becoming a poseurs place to dine with poor service. Food and service need to match.

    The food was good, but the afternoon tea was too sweet (even the sandwiches were brioche rolls). The staff were friendly and if you like loud music, sitting in a thoroughfare and struggling to get the waiter’s attention this is the place for you. It didn’t live up to my expectations, but I could see potential!

    Received a champagne afternoon tea for 2 gift from my bosses. Absolutely beautiful setting, outside reminded me of a New Orleans vibe. Excellent service, didn’t feel rushed, furniture & decor are stunning and the toilets are amazing. Loved my afternoon, bit pricey (but since I didn’t pay…..) I recommend this as a lovely gift to someone special. Would just say the music didn’t need to be so loud..

    We were a group of friends celebrating a special birthday. We were served initially by a man then halfway through service it changed to a woman. The service was ok but we did wait a tad too long inbetween courses. I do think the waiting on needs sharpening as the crockery was collected across me and my friends. I don’t appreciate having someone stretch across me with no words to collect plates! My friends thought the food was exceptional as did I on this occasion. We would visit again but will try the Asian cuisine next time. We’re hoping we can appraise this a little more positively when we book again
