The Ivy Soho Brasserie is located on Broadwick Street, one of Soho’s most popular areas.
Decorated with artworks inspired by Soho’s music scene, as well as William Blake (Broadwick’s most famous resident), the space is made up of a restaurant, bar, private dining room and terrace with Parisian-style seating. Open seven days a week, the modern British menu will be available from dawn till dusk for local workers, residents, shoppers and visitors to enjoy. Being located in Soho, the brasserie will have a DJ spinning music every Friday and Saturday from 7pm and on weekends during brunch until close.
The Ivy Soho Brasserie’s look and feel has been created by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and notable features include an onyx bar, bronze pendant lighting, marble floor tiles, polished parquet and a mixture of burnt orange leather and velvet banquettes and bar stools.

Love the restaurant & the friendly service team. The only negative is that tables of 6 guests+ only get to select from a limited menu, which wasn't flagged online at the time of booking. Ask to see the limited menu before you book larger tables in case this affects your group & the choices available.

More like a TGI FRIDAYS of the 1980’s , poor food, loud and very disappointing- many more good local restaurants in the area which offer better value. I would definitely not recommend or return.

It's not an easy yes or no here. We have been here before and loved it. It was unbearably noisy and I wish I had kept my coat on! Gin and Tonic was mainly ice and £11 for ice and not much else is a bit much! We will return to another branch of The Ivy but may give the Brasserie a miss for a while. Food was good but overall it was a disappointing visit this time.

Food served very quickly more or less as soon as we had sat down, felt like we were rushed and even though we had the table for 2 hours we were all done in just over an hour, all felt too quick and they wanted us off the table ASAP. Food OK probably all pre-prepared, so felt value not good. Ivy chain generally overrated and wouldn't rush to go back to any of them.

It can be VERY loud in there at times, which makes hearing your guest(s) very difficult. However, the decor is splendid. The staff are well presented and very courteous. They were also very attentive, except for when it came time to pay. That can be a bit awkward. It seemed everyone disappeared suddenly. I think the tea pot is gorgeous (afternoon tea), but a refill would be much appreciated. One refill would be more than plenty. If refills are available, it would be good to know so. I will come back though. Thank you.

We have visited this restaurant a couple of times and had a great experience. Our recent visit was dogged by dirty glasses and obviously something wrong either with the washing of glasses or the tap water having some problems. Two gin and tonics were returned due to black bits floating in the glass and the tap water also had some black bits floating in it. The food was amazing and the service in a hectic situation was OK. However we ended up paying the bill for the wrong table and then had to make a second payment. With the problems we had, I was surprised not to get at least a complimentary Gin and tonic. What we did get was another bottle of tap water with black bits. At Christmas we had complimentary pudding when service was slightly late. I hope this does not mean service is slipping? I would try the place again but if we got the same service I would not use it again.

While it can be quite loud in there because the DJ is mixing it up or diners thoroughly enjoying themselves, have a libation or two and you'll be among the many others enjoying a lively night with friends, great food and cocktails.

Went here after seeing a show in London, good job we booked as it was very busy when we arrived (Saturday early evening); we were a little early so our table wasn't ready and there were no seats at the bar but didn't wait long to be seated, service was very good overall and the food was excellent and courses well spaced, we were not rushed at all, highly recommended as reasonably good value for London and we would certainly go again. The wine was excellent too, good selection available at reasonable prices, the atmosphere is good but quite noisy, music later on is fairly loud but we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here.

Stylish place to have drinks, but if you want great service and food look somewhere else.Scallops starter was very good, although main with sea bass was small portion and nothing remarkable. Cheese selection looked like bought in some supermarket. I think you can find Michelin start restaurant with better quality for the same price.

Was very loud and the service struggled to keep up with the number of diners. G&ts didn’t turn up until 10 mins before we were due to leave however they were knocked off the bill which was nice. The waiter we had was also very nice and apologetic. Music was on way to loud...restaurant too large and lacks the atmosphere of the smaller Ivy venues
