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 only positive thing from the evening was the uber ride home. Really wouldn’t bother coming here it isn’t worth the hype. 0 customer service, downright rude members of staff. They clearly rely on the “ivy” name. Not one to write anything negative as you never know if someone’s having a bad day etc but honestly never been spoken to like that ever before! I would just avoid like the plague.

The wait for the table despite having a confirmed booking and timeslot was ridiculous. 50mins! Not a great experience with having to send my meal back and then eating by myself as everyone else had finished by the time mine came back out. Great decor but so disappointed. I wouldn’t go again.

Great food & drink. We had an issue with our steaks but the manager very kindly removed from bill and offered a replacement meal- it didn’t ruin our evening. Lots of fun

lovely food, good company and decent price. only downside was that i ordered a vodka and lemonade, the waiter only ordered lemonade for me and when i asked he was adamant there was vodka in it. tasted the drink and was certain there wasn't any vodka in it, bill came and confirmed just lemonade was ordered. he also took a while to come over to clear our empty plates but overall, the experience was lovely.

Saturday late lunch - great lively atmosphere - food was great (I recommend the Scallops and also the Lamb Shoulder)
My only complaint was that at times the service vanished - in particular at the end of the main course where we had finished plates sat in front of us for 10 mins.
At no point were we asked if we wanted more water (bottle was finished) or more drinks (glasses empty) - which feels like it was a missed opportunity for them.
All in all we had a really good meal because we were not in a rush - but I would beware if you go at a busy time and you are pushed for time

Really enjoyed having breakfast here - the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were delicious - and very good value. It is very stylish, clean, well organised and friendly in an efficient kind of way. Like a very safe pair of hands. I asked for a cosy table and got a corner one with a cushion which was perfect. (FYI they are very strict about moving from breakfast to brunch menu at 11am).

Good food and service but the experience was spoiled for me by the high noise level - very loud music, so had to scream the dinner conversation with friends - exhausting :(

Our starter (zucchini) was great. Cocktails were good. Yet, the main (crab linguine) was not impressive at all.

Service was poor. The waiter kept asking if we had finished with our starter although he could clearly see that we had a lot left, to which I kept repeating “no”. As a result despite having almost half of our starter left, the waiter brought our mains. He then kept asking to take the starter. The worst was how we noticed him speaking to another member of stuff about us and the fact that we didn’t want him to take our starter. The level of service we received didn’t at all correspond to the image of the brand.

Would not recommend.

I like the concept. Decor good, excellent service, good overall vibe & atmosphere but... the food can be a bit hit and miss. Some items are great, but we had to send one dish back. Good for all day dining, lunch with pals & overall somewhere I will probably return

I went with a friend for lunch and we hadn’t seen each other for a while. The food and table service was ok, but it was so noisy it was difficult to talk. We were placed in a corner on a table for 2 in between 2 large groups. I asked to move to a different table but was told that it was a table for 4 so we couldn’t have it - despite the restaurant not being full. The restaurant in general was pretty noisy. I would only choose to go there again in a group.

They had a DJ who was playing music so loud we had to shout across the table at one another to be heard. We asked if it could be turned down and they refused. It was like dining in a nightclub. Not what we signed up for. Quality of the food was excellent but the music and poor service ruined the evening for us.

The food was lovely, the restaurant is funky and modern but the service was terrible. This was a birthday celebration which I had communicated, asking for champagne on arrival. That did not happen. We had to constantly ask for our wine to be topped up, which was disappointing. I like the Ivy group but I won't be going to this one again. It really spoiled was meant to be a celebratory event.

The food was good as always at The Ivy, but the service was poor. We waited up to twenty minutes each time we ordered a drink, the waiter was very frantic and this caused him to smash a glass on our table, resulting in us needing all new drinks. It took around 15 to 20 minutes to get our new drinks and so we were sat there without anything mid way through our meal. He then went on to drop the bottle opener and spill drops of our red wine, on the table and by my jeans without as much as an apology. We would have spent longer and ordered more drinks had the service been better. We were celebrating my Mum's birthday and when we told the waiter this and requested a candle in her dessert he did not deliver, this was very disappointing. He then gave us a selection of chocolates which we didn't ask for and then proceeded to charge us for this. We did inform the host staff of our experience when we left but they weren't interested in listening. We will not be returning to this chain as it did not live up to our expectations or the high standards of other Ivy Brasseries that we have visited.

I don’t think the staff were up to scratch with the level of service that is usually offered at the Ivy. They were quite brash and rude, they definitely did not put the customers interest/enjoyment first. It left me with a sour taste post the meal.

The food, however, was excellent. All absolutely delicious!
