We had a lovely meal, great wine and excellent service by Thasos. The ambience was just right and we really liked the atmosphere because there was music in the background which made the occasion feel more lively with just two of us dining. We will definitely return and bring more friends next time.

I took my 80 year old parents to the Ivy for a meal. I am very familar with the brand and concept and have been to many of the restaurants. I see them as a traditional/ good quality brand. Upon arrival it seems they now have a live DJ playing in the restaurant, so loud that I thought I was in Ibiza. Totally inappropriate for a meal setting. We couldnt hold a conversation.
The service was slow, we sat down at 7.15pm but our food didnt arrive until 8.10pm.
One dish was cold. The rest were fine.
They had a problem with the plumbing and all the ladies toilets were not flushing!
Overall I feel the brand has gone down hill, there are much better alternatives and wont be rushing back. Its no longer a safe bet for a meal with parents.

The restaurant was beautiful a lovely ambience and tasty food. Unfortunately the service was so bad not the staff just the fact they don’t have enough employees working for the quantity of tables and people.
We waited 45 minutes for our starters and then had to kept asking for our missing drinks and then Mains. We also had to be somewhere afterwards so it ended being quite rushed and we were out for my mums birthday.
It could have just been a bad night as I’ve been to a ivy before and it was fab.

I have been to The Ivy on several occasions. This time the levels of service wasn't great but once I mentioned to the Manager they did improve. A very busy afternoon and great atmosphere.

The staff were very good and polite . We have been to several Ivy restaurants and rate this above Canary Wharf but below West Street which is our favourite and where we are going again next year

A wonderful setting, we were slightly late and the restaurant accommodated with it. Food was absolutely superb and very high end. The service was brilliant, the staff were always on hand to serve our drinks and food and take orders. The cost was vary fair and definitely reflected the quality of food.

The only downside I could see what’s the music didn’t reflect the restaurant well. House music just doesn’t go in a venue like that. Just a thought thought.

Besides the music choice which we really didn’t mind may I add. It was a brilliant venue with impeccable food and service

We will be returning and I’ll be telling all my family and friends how amazing it is

Very impressed

We went for a joint birthday dinner with friends - great buzz and thought food was pretty good - great prawn cocktail and very generous portions and everyone enjoyed mains . Very well priced I thought (ie lots of mains around the £14/15 mark). Only niggle was service - waiters and staff all really friendly and helpful just felt not enough of them - eg bread arrived after starters, same with a couple of sides and often asking for top up of wine which was being kept cold somewhere on the other side of the room - but enjoyed and would go back

Service was very good if a bit naive (our waiter didn't know the menu very well eg insisting that the Lemon Sole couldn't be served on the bone).
For the most part the food was also good, but once again and across several branches, it seems their chefs can't cook Lemon Sole very well.
All three portions of ours were very overcooked and had the texture and taste of soggy cotton wool. A shame.

High end venue but did not live up to expectations mainly die to fact that we had to deal with very unprofessional behaviour from the Maitre D who made us feel very uncomfortable on several occasions by arriving at our table pressuring us in to vacate although we were still within our allocated time slot. We felt this was unbecoming of a supposedly high end establishment such as this and rather spoilt our evening. We will not be returning.
Food, although expertly prepared was cold and this let it down. Staff service however was very good which is why we paid the service charge. Overall though we felt the experience was poor.

Our first visit for breakfast. It proved to be a relaxed leisurely experience with good service. Overall the food was average - no real bad points. At £55 for 2 November not especially cheap though fine for occasional breakfast out in a nice space. Cote Soho would be a cheaper option in the area.

Great place, fabulous food, friendly staff, vibrant atmosphere. Drinks were slower to arrive than expected, nobody minds waiting with a drink in hand. The food however was served quickly and efficiently. Not the biggest of portions but neatly presented with lovely flavour.

The Ivy know what they're doing and The Ivy Soho is the best in my opinion, glamorous and lively. A great spot to start the evening.

This was a pre theatre meal, the set menu was reasonably priced and the portions were not stingy at all. Drinks were well mixed and plenty of affordable wine options. well worth a visit

We have visited the Soho branch several times and it has never failed to deliver good food and great service from the moment you walk through the door. Our table service this time was by I think Antos from Greece. On the day of iur visit it 2as only his 2nd day at The Ivy but he was so efficient and professional, one would never have known it, a really credit to Ivy.

I was surprised at the quality of the food. Being an offshoot of a well known establishment I did not have high expectations. However the dishes were beautifully presented and more to the point were flavoursome and perfectly cooked. The wine list is relatively expensive but to be expected for central London. The waiter service was spot on. Would not hesitate to return.

Having hear about this restaurant from friends we thought we would try it out whilst in town. The same food and service that we are used to from our local Ivy in York but the restaurant itself is stunning. Well worth the trip.
