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.

I went with a friend on Sunday. My meal was okay - chicken milanese- but the salmon and broccoli my friend ordered was disappointing. When it came up, the waitress, to her credit, did offer to change it, but it really should only be offered as a starter, if at all. The creme brulees to follow, were okay. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. Try Bancone instead, in lower St James Street. Authentic Italian food, with lovely desserts.

Brunch on Sunday. Service efficient but could have been a bit more friendly. Hosts too surly for their welcoming role
Eggs Benedict and arancini delicious
Like all Ivy collection sites the restaurant is pretty and comfortable

Overall the experience wasn’t the worst, but I think you have high expectations for somewhere like The Ivy. We waited 15 minutes to be shown to our table and then received very slow service from our waitress all night, we hardly saw her really.
I enjoyed my starter but the main- considering the price- was average at best and I definitely wouldn’t recommend it. It’s a shame because the atmosphere was great, I think we were just unlucky with the slow service but it’s definitely put us off going to an Ivy restaurant again.

We arrived at the restaurant early in time for our booking. The staff that greeted us were helpful and took us to our table once ready.

We sat down where our server asked us if we would like a complimentary bottle of water to which we accepted & once they came back with the bottle they advised us we would they’d be back to take our order.

They then sat down two other tables, took their drinks and food order and did not return to us. After 25 minutes I had to leave my seat & ask a server to come over so that we could order. This also happened whilst we ate, the server saw to tables to our immediate right and left, but ignored us which greatly upset my partner as it was her birthday meal. It was very kind of the other guests to say to us they’d ask the server to attend to us as they also notice we were being ignored.

The food was not acceptable. My partner had chicken breast which was cold. And I had a shepherds pie which was like warm at best. This combined with the lack of service, the absurdly loud music (genuinely, I have tinnitus and even I thought “Christ this music is loud”) left a very poor image of this place. When we asked for our bill we saw that the complimentary bottle of water wasn’t complimentary to which other guests asked us about before paying their bill.

In summary, both my partner and I were disappointed in the meal and service and will not be returning for a little while. Sadly, we found more comfort and attention in the first McDonald’s we saw.

Nyto was an excellent waiter and very helpful when another server forgot my drink order. He went out his way to make sure the situation was sorted and make our experience enjoyable. First visit there but definitely will be making a lot more!

If you are looking from a place to eat on a Saturday or Friday evening that has atmosphere and ambiance and also great food, this is the place. They cater for all pallets and the food really is fab.

Went with two other friends at 6pm (book as the place fills fast!). Beautiful interior design; staff were very attentive and helpful.

Highlights of the night for me were the zucchini fries, salmon main and truffle mash.

Ordered the apple tart for dessert but the alcohol didn’t burn off properly? Left a portion of the dessert tasting too strong, almost like ethanol so I couldn’t finish it. But what I did try was fantastic.

10/10 would go again. Thanks for a lovely dining experience.

Perfect service, food, atmosphere and staff. They’ve adapted well to make it feel great but with enough spacing to be COVID compliant.
