    When we arrived at 5.30pm we told the staff we were going to the theatre and would breed to leave at 7pm - an hour and a half. We put in our order and the first course arrived by 5.50. The second course didn’t arrive until almost 7pm over an hire. When we spoke to the staff they apologised but said the oven was busy. We didn’t have time to eat or desserts. VERY DISAPPOINTING I would like a managerial response. Date visited 10th August Birmingham Ivy

    We chose The Ivy for a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary that day. I mentioned this in passing on the booking, and they couldn't do enough for us. We were congratulated by three different people and at the end they brought us out a complementary dessert with Happy Anniversary on it for us. They even offered complementary coffees and teas which we politely declined. We had the haddock from the set meal which was a little bland, but still cooked to perfection, a little salt fixed that. Overall, would come back again for another special occasion, or maybe try an afternoon tea.

    It was OK. Just OK. Friend had to send fish course back and select another dish as said it wasn't fresh and 'on the turn'. She travels alot and knows her food. Had 2 people come and ask why she'd sent it back so felt a bit hassled. Next dish was fine. Almost £20 service fee added to £160 which is extortionate in my eyes.

    We thought we'd give The Ivy in Birmingham a try while we were there as they are opening in our home town of Bournemouth soon & we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, as was the service, the presentation & the ambience. The staff deserve a special mention as they were ALL professional, courteous & efficient. It's a bit expensive, but not too expensive, & as the old adage goes 'you get what you pay for'. Looking forward to eating at The Ivy in Bournemouth.
