The experience overall was superb with a cosy yet buzzy atmosphere to celebrate a birthday.
Menu choice wasn’t great if looking for something healthy but lots on there.
Unfortunately one of daughters was sick as we left and had an upset tummy overnight so something didn’t quite agree 😬

Food was amazing. Service a bit rushed as they were busy but very efficient staff. Roof top music was a bit too loud for lunchtime but other than that it’s a lovely place to eat

Brilliant celebration of 40 years of friendship with two friends. The food and service in the roof garden was excellent, finished off with drinks in the bar.

Antonio and two others ( sorry forget their names, one was dark haired with a moustache and the other very tall and blonde) were attentive without being intrusive.

It was the 1st visit for my friends and they loved it.

The Ivy is a great place to dine and celebrate. Met some lovely people in the bar, a good time was had by all.

Service was shocking. Took to long waiting to be served, waiting between drinks for at least 10 minutes. A Member of staff was very rude, when asked if she could chase up my meal as we waited 40minutes for our main meal.

We had to leave before we ordered food as my partner was not feeling well, we had had 1 drink and we’re going to pay for it but the waiter Rob said drink was on the house,

What fantastic service and very much appreciated, we will definitely come back and experience everything, we were gutted we had to leave but my partner was very unwell.

Service and food was amazing. The only thing I’d say is about the noise level and that the level of the music made it difficult to make conversation

I haven't been to this particular Ivy Brasserie and found it to be absolutely wonderful. The venue was an opulent galore of beautiful surroundings down to the finest detail. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly throughout, very attentive with nothing too much trouble. The only thing I would say is that the tea was a little bit weak. I came for afternoon tea and the large silver teapots used when filled with hot water need more than one tea bag as even when leaving it to brew for sometime it was still rather weak. Apart from that it was fantastic, the scones were delicious and the atmosphere spectacular. Would definitely return.

I would not recommend. On arrival we waited at the desk on the Rooftop floor and no one came to seat us. A waiter actually looked straight at me, no smile and walked away, it was left to us to chase a waiter so we could be seated.

We were seated and ordered drinks. It took sometime for the drinks to arrive, we ordered wine so no preparation of drinks needed to be done just to grab a hotel. Granted we did have house wine but it really was not very nice, bitter with a vinegar taste and would definitely not recommend.

The food was ok but nothing to write home about, plain and soon went cold. Our waitress was lovely but unfortunately we could never find her and I had to ask other waiters more than once for our wine to be topped up which they did begrudgingly.

Unfortunately I believe the hype of this place does not reflect the quality. Just overall very disappointing.
