    I went with my child for brunch, we were warmly welcomed by the lovely hostess Kate who showed us to our seats. Our server Djazia was very attentive and friendly, we ordered pancakes with berries and cream and avocado Benedict which was superb! Great service all around.

    The service was very slow. We had to wait quite a while in between the courses. There was only one person covering the whole back area and we praised him for being able to do the job!! But the wait too long.

    Spent a long time getting a simple but special request for my Mother's 50th organised (15 minutes on hold on the phone to no avail and then an email exchange) only to find on arrival no such request had been fulfilled. Was just quite disappointing. Not sure where the communication error was, but they did try and rectify by great service after. Food was fine - steak was great, but the other dishes were just fine. Good value for the service, but not great value over all. Was still a lovely evening, and I think the service once we had arrived was great, just clearly a communication error somewhere, and had it not been for such a special occasion it probably would've been a higher review!

    I was seated outside. No one came to our table until 15 minutes after we sat down when I finally flagged the hostess. Our table was completely wobbly. They didn’t even try to fix we had to get up and move to another table. Had to pour my own water throughout the meal. Waiter never checked in. Had to actually get up and go inside to get my check at the end of the meal. No sign of the waiter. Again, the hostess had to bring it. Then, CARD MACHINE DID NOT WORK. Hostess chased me down the street to come back to the restaurant. She ran it three more times and then got another machine. It finally worked. Ugh. And don’t get me started about the bait and switch on the £20 gift promotion. Didn’t read the FINE PRINT that you had to spend £100. That should be in the headline! Terrible experience overall.

    Very disappointing experience. We returned to the restaurant following a fantastic evening a couple of months ago with wonderful and attentive service. This was the close to the opposite. While the food was good, the service completely detracted and spoiled the evening. The drink service was painfully slow, finally arriving after our starters. The cocktails (all four of us agreed) were horrible and so we sent them back. We were told only that the bar staff insisted they had been made correctly. The lead server/manager was sullen and appeared annoyed that we had sent our drinks back. The next round took equally long and arrived with mistakes. The main course then arrived while our starters were still on the table. And when we queried what the rush was, were told by the same manager (incorrectly for a table of 4) that we only had 90 minutes. We had in any event only been there by that point for 45 minutes and the tables were not turned for a second sitting with the restaurant emptying out. The service was at best disinterested and thereafter following a script of enquiring as to whether everything was okay when it was painfully clear they really didn’t care. A profiterole with a candle was duly dropped on the table as a nod to the birthday celebration. The whole experience would be passable if a run of the mill High Street restaurant. This is the Ivy group and at this price point, it is as much the experience as the food offer. They got it wrong and we won’t rush back for a third try.

    Food was great and the atmosphere is elegant and pleasant. Staff were considerate and polite, but they only had one waiter for the entire back room where we were (about 30 people dining) which is clearly not appropriate. I was there on time but my guests were 20 mins late, I ordered a cocktail and some olives but it still hadn't come by the time they arrived, or even any water, which is pretty shocking in my book. You should never leave customers without any basic refreshment for 20 mins after arrival!! I feel bad for the young waiter as he was really sweet and obviously trying hard but yeh, they definitely needed more staff and more attention on the tables. The food once ordered did arrive promptly though, and was excellent.
    The Ivy St John's WoodResponded on 7 May 2024
    Thank you for your feedback, I am sure this was an oversight as we have trained waiters on the floor, something has gone wrong to fall short of our timings and I am sorry you had to wait as a result. We will work on the touchbacks to remedy any such occasions in the future. I am glad you enjoyed yourself the rest of the evening however. I hope this doesn't spoil you to come back soon!

    Lunch today . Starters scallops, crispy duck salad , salt & pepper squid . Children ordered breaded chicken with chips . Mains sirloin with spinach and Shepards pie with lettuce . Scallops were a little on the tepid side .otherwise tasted fine . Duck & squid were on point great texture and flavour . One of the breaded chickens hadn’t even reached the pink stage it was red inside . We pointed it out to the waiter, the Manager aggressively jumped In and informed us, it’s the vein that’s making it red .’. We weren’t going to let our 5 year old eat this literally bloody chicken . By this stage he had gone right off the idea and simply wanted chips . The manger’s tone towards us was simply shocking , even the lovely Italian waiter seemed a little embarrassed. Ironically the establishment was only 40% percent filled which for a Saturday was rather unusual . We asked for the steak medium rare it was medium and absolute rubber the Shepards pie was fine . We ordered pudding for the children and called for the bill . At No stage did any of the staff enquire if we enjoyed the food or why only 30% of the steak was consumed . This is our local, sadly we won’t be returning.
    The Ivy St John's WoodResponded on 30 April 2024
    Dear hav joe Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you experienced this. I think the 'Italian' gentleman helped you on the day and was waiting your table. Forgive us for the way the chicken came out, it does have a pink hue at times but they are probed for temperature checks. I am confident the gentleman was checking in with you and if anything was overlooked again I apologise. For the Manager's forwardness I am sure this was not intended to be defensive rather conscious for your child they were not eating raw poultry and to explain what we understood it to have been. If there is anything I can do to build our bridges back I will be happy to intervene. Sincere regards General Manager .

    Service to be seated was slow. Service for drinks order was slow. Had to ask them to clean the table after starters, and then only half the table was cleaned. Left without having tea and dessert because we were told the time on the table was up!! The Jack Fruit salad was not as nice as the one at Chelsea, seems not finely cut, and the taste/ smelt not appetising.

    Top restaurant. Beautiful setting. A delightful experience with a menu that contains a unique collection of guilty pleasure dishes that are perfectly prepared. My only complaint is please put steak tartare back on the menu. We took our nephew to the Ivy for his birthday and he loved it also. We would gladly return to the Ivy for dinner. a lovely restaurant.

    We've been to the Ivy many times before and it never disappoints. For lunch we had the scallops and the souffle for starters, then the shepherd's pie and the new lamb dish, finishing with the chocolate covered doughnuts; all were excellent and not a scrap was left on our plates! As usual the service was attentive and polite and the atmosphere very relaxing. We came by car and were able to park on the street nearby using an App on the phone. Overall excellent, we wouldn't change anything!

    We arrived for a prebooked table for 4 people @ 19:30. We were shown to our table straight away. A waiter appeared after about 10 mins with menus and it was immediately noticeable that he was inexperienced. He disappeared and came back 15 mins later and took our orders, not asking if we wanted drinks. Two soufles were ordered as starters, one arrived, and we had to ask where the second one was. It arrived 5 mins later. The mains courses, after asking to see the manager didn’t appear for another 30 mins. I have visited Ivy restaurants all over the country and never had a bad experience, until this visit, which was a birthday celebration. It was obvious that there was a lot of new staff, but the level of training that some were given wasn’t good enough to be let loose on the paying public.

    Dear FranS I am very sorry to learn that we did not manage our team well enough for your visit. It is correct we have new staff members and although they are doing well, some may make a mistake and thank you for being kind to that. That said we try to avoid of course. I will make time to look into this and reach out to you to hopefully make this right. Wishing you well and from us all, a lovely weekend
