    Great service from victor. Food was lovely and decor fab. Could have done with the music a little lower… a little loud for a Tuesday night (more bar vibes than restaurant. Didn’t think a dj was needed) but overall would recommend.

    The service was slow, a pet hate is the waiter sitting at the table with you, trying to be your friend. I had to ask for the set menu, which I think is out of order and poor service as my impression is you are trying to make more money on the main menu, therefore not offering a choice. The music was loud and fast paced, it felt like being in a night club in Ibiza and I couldn’t have a conversation with my wife. The music made me feel that I had to eat quick and get out of the restaurant even quicker. The food was ok, nothing special. I only booked this restaurant as had an amazing time at the Cardiff restaurant, but was severely let down by the whole experience.

    Really enjoyed our time at The Ivy. We came a bit early so got a cocktail in the bar area to the side of the roof garden, which was very nice. Then our drinks were taken over to our table when we had our reservation. The food was overall very nice, the broccoli side was a bit hard but mostly good food and not too expensive. Our waitress was also very attentive and friendly.

    It was our 13th anniversary. I have to say you made it very special for us. The food was amazing, packed with flavour, the presentation and the portion. We were looked after by somebody called Martin. He was amazing, he made sure we had everything we needed and always kept our table clean and tidy. The place was lovely too. Can’t wait to come again. Thank you again.

    Fabulous start, we received the table we had asked for. The atmosphere was strangely lacking and it seemed as though they were slightly short staffed. Initially the first waiter was lovely and took our order, but then the meals came and one was incorrect. Quickly resolved and the correct meal came. Food was lovely. We ate our mains and the plates were collected, finally we were offered pudding albeit that we turned it down. A nice birthday profiterole for the birthday girl was a fab gesture, I had to try to get someone’s attention to request the bill as no one came to check on us. Then the bill came and we were charged for an additional main meal. Luckily I noticed it and the waitress apologised and removed it. Just such a shame that I chose this restaurant for a birthday treat as usually everything is excellent but yesterday was sadly lacking in the usual flair from waiters and attention to detail. A tad disappointing on this occasion. Hopefully when we go back (and we will) it will have improved back to the usual expected standard.

    Really don’t like the vibe on Saturday nights anymore. More about the place to be seen rather than a quality restaurant. Maitre d took 20 min to seat us and music is too loud for a restaurant. Table too small for 4 people.

    We were there for champagne afternoon tea. We were seated next to a very loud table of 4. It was good to seem them having a lovely time but was a little bit overwhelming at times when their voices were raised to a very high octave. On the whole a pleasant and enjoyable experience

    Great food and great service - from the door being opened as you enter , the reception team finding your reservation and telling you where you need to go to arriving at your table you where made to feel really welcome and special . Service from the waiter was faultless and we never felt rushed . A simply wonderful afternoon - even a special cake at the end with happy anniversary at no extra cost - it was the small things like that that made it simply amazing .
