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.

Very nice dinner with family from overseas. Noisy and not great for vegetarians, but a lively atmosphere, beautiful decor, dependable food and excellent service made it a very enjoyable evening. Gutted that the steak, egg and chips is gone from the menu though!

The food and service were excellent. The range on the menu is great, making choosing what to have difficult. Would definitely go back.

We arrived on time and there was no record of our booking (we booked through Open Table). After providing proof of our booking via email confirmation we assured we would be seated. There was no apology for the booking going missing. We waited the bar for 20 minutes. The food arrived but the steak sandwich was over-cooked so sent back to the kitchen. The two remaining main courses arrived luke-warm but we ate them anyway as clearly the restaurant was under pressure. The waitress offered us dessert on the house which a good gesture and went along way to smoothing the situation. We ordered tea with our dessert. The waitress spilled the milk on my friend's seat which was clearly unintentional and unfortunate. We asked for the table water bottle to be filled several times before it was done.

Overall the staff attending our table were attentive and good but the restaurant was so busy it meant they couldn't be as responsive as I'm sure they'd have liked to be.

It was so, so, so loud! Why, when you're having a nice meal with silver service do I want it to be a club? We asked the waiter if they could turn it down. Even he said it was too load. What a shame to ruin lovely food with, literally, night club level of noise! I was very disappointed!

We were expecting a more romantic and peaceful evening, instead it seemed to be very loud music with a DJ playing which was a different ambience to what we hoped for. Food was very simple and unimaginative, and not well cooked. The waiting staff were good, they were rushed off their feet but overall I would not go back again.

Seated half an hour late (despite flagging it was a pre-theater booking) so we were incredibly rushed, we were made to stand at the bar where no seating was free. The front of house service was rude and the whole experience really poor.

New menu is poor. Burger dry, chips hard and dry, chicken tasteless, truffle sauce was like a packet sauce. £9 for g&t, £9 for 1 glass house white. Very very noisy and to be honest it looked a bit tatty. 2 mains 2 drinks 1 bot tap water £70!!!!! Toilets smelly, no hand towels and no soap. My advice save your money and go 5 yards up the road to Cote Brasserie

Nice atmosphere, very good service. Food great.
It was a perfect place for my daughter’s 20th birthday.
Only downside was that there was a very loud table of women next to us that impaired conversation. I would request a table away from big groups

Everything excellent....except the abysmal border line too loud music. Yes you want to give the restaurant a vibe, but the music is far too in your face and almost kills conversation. A new sound scape is required. Please do not hesitate to ask me.

I came here over christmas and had such a great time I just had to come back. Took the other half this time and splashed out on some lovely chablis and lobster. Went to the bar afterwards and had a couple (lots) of delicious cocktails. One of my new haunts I think!

Our party of nine were kindly accommodated rather last minute as numbers increased to celebrate a 21st birthday. The ambience and food were excellent and staff friendly and attentive. The decor is a modern mix of vibrant colours with interesting art. Bar area is very attractive and overall effect works well to create a lovely atmosphere. We would definitely recommend and return.
