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.

Unfortunately even for a weekday lunch the service was slow. Waiting staff were quite unattentive, talking amongst themselves whilst it took a while to get their attention that the fries were missing - resulting in a cold streak.

However, lovely interior and the rest of the food tasted good.

Having read some reviews about noise volume we were a bit nervous about our meal but on a Sunday evening it was a lovely buzz in the restaurant perfect to create atmosphere. food and service were all as to be expected from this group.

We go to the Ivy Brasserie in Soho a lot - always consistently good food. Service was a little off this trip - had to ask for everything twice, wine took forever but still would recommend.

I am very disappointed with the meal I had last night. My friends and I arrived early so waited and had a drink at the bar and were advised that we would be brought to our table at the time of our reservation. Despite chasing the staff multiple times our table was not ready until 20 minutes after the booking time. Following on from this it was specified within the booking we would like a ‘booth’ table and instead we were allocated a small table beside the bar. After speaking with the manager who arranged for us to have a complimentary drink things continued to go downhill. The main course was a disappointment, I ordered the fish cake with broccoli as a side, the egg on top of the fishcake was cold and inedible and the broccoli was nowhere to be seen, we asked three separate waiters if the side was coming and they said it was on the way but never arrived. When we received the bill we had been charged for both the ‘complementary’ drinks and the sides which we never received. Very disappointing service overall for a special birthday meal, I have lost faith in the restaurant as we have been to a number of the different Ivy restaurants but will now think twice when booking dinner.

Lovely delicious food & nice wine. Great service- I ordered a cocktail I didn’t enjoy (it was too strong) and they took it away and did not charge for it. Very nice indeed.

Everything was great. Warm service and great quality of food. We were on the external area and I did not like that there are people from the street coming to your table to try to sell you things. Would be better to have someone take a closer care of that.

Beware. If you book on open table this restaurant may claim to not have your booking and by the way apparently it's your fault not theirs. Noisy. Poor service. The worst of what is otherwise a good chain.

Ivy Brasserie(s) are always a good spot for a nice dinner although we were disappointed to be asked to move to the bar when we had already order our desserts and final drinks for the night. Would have been nice to be told before ordering if we needed to move!

Ate there this week as I’ve done many a time .... crab linguine had shell in which I high lighted to which the waiter ran his finger over the shell on the side of my plate smiled and took the plate away said nothing did nothing.
I had an important meet so didn’t want to upset my guest by making a point but for the Ivy Soho this is poor!

Service wasnt great. Twice people tried to take our glasses when they still had wine in them. We were a table of three and as soon as our client left a women rudely asked us to move to a smaller table as people were waiting for ours (although we hadnt even ordered our desert yet). this then put us off ordering desert.

This is a very nice restaurant in an increasingly fashionable area of Soho. Fabulous Christmas decorations outside and a very nice ambience inside. We had been to a mid-week theatre matinee and had early dinner afterwards. The restaurant was nice and quiet when we arrived. Was filling up fast by the time we left. I always enjoy visiting this restaurant!

The décor has to be the main attraction for all the Ivy Cafes, packed with art work and funky local references, it is the first feast for the eyes. The menu across all the cafes provides the next feast, with the menu fixe adding to the great range of choices on the a la carte menu. I requested a quieter table for my guest and the Ivy staff gave us a lovely corner seat where we could still view the beautiful restaurant. Service was friendly and informal - though the waitress did forget to bring our side of beans at least we were not charged for it! More importantly, they remembered that it was my treat for my friend's birthday and brought her a tasty little Happy Birthday treat at the end of the meal. Thank you Ivy Staff, see you again soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Ivy in Soho. The staff are particularly good. Well cooked food of ample proportions and not at all fussy. The staff were excellent and clearly well trained not only in the art of food service but they were also friendly and efficient. It is different to The Ivy Brasserie in Covent Garden which we have visited a number of times, because it is larger and probably less intimate and certainly louder, but not to the point where it detracted from our experience. Thoroughly recommended.

We had a lovely meal here. Service was very good and we found all staff to be friendly. Our meals were lovely...very tasty. We ordered the ginger beer but both couldn’t drink it as it was so so bitter but we spoke to our waiter and it was removed from our bill. The ambiance is lovely. Vibrant and warming. We shall return

It was a really pleasant meal but I did find that we had to shout to be heard so probably not ideal for anything romantic meal. Good, lively buzz and great food though. I tried to remove the service charge and pay with cash but wasn’t allowed and was told the service had to be included - so be warned!
