    A long wait for drinks orders and then an almost an hour before any food arrived - too busy and too many people are crammed into a small. Was sat on 1st floor - ground floor tends to have a little more space
    The Ivy Temple RowResponded 1 day ago
    Hello Samantha, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback following your visit yesterday. We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit, especially as it was a birthday celebration. We understand that there was a confusion with the confirmed number of guests attending which is why your allocated table was slightly smaller. Unfortunately, do to being fully booked yesterday we could not offer you a different table. We have looked in to the delays in your main courses, which took around 30 minutes which is slightly longer then expected and this has been followed up with our Head Chef to look in to further which their team. Many thanks, The Ivy Temple Row

    We arrived very early for our booking - but without fuss we were offered a table at the bar and had time to order and start on a glass of Prosecco. We were ushered to our table and Antoine B arrived promptly to offer menus and take our drinks order. He returned with a bottle of wine and water very promptly and answered our questions re the menu confidently and took our order. We shared both the smoked salmon starter - it would have been overwhelming as a starter if we hadn’t and the cheeseboard likewise. We both chose the blackened cod loin which was to die for and shared a portion of peas and beans. The food was beautifully presented and served. Coming to The Ivy is always a special occasion and this meal didn’t disappoint.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my Dad’s birthday. The service was excellent, we were really well looked after by our main server and also everyone who served us was also very professional and friendly too. The food on the set menu worked well for lunch and provides great value. The touch of the birthday profiterole was perfect and much appreciated. We all had a very enjoyable time and will definitely come again. Many thanks for everything.

    This was my first visit and I was so impressed with all aspects of my visit. Having requested a corner table we were taken to the top floor and were given a great table. The restaurant is so stylish and the service team friendly and efficient. Lunch was delicious . The Kitchen team work so hard on preparing , cooking and presenting their skills . It was one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed. There was a great atmosphere and very busy but the service was so good. Thank you to all the team. Jonathan Gill

    Popped in for a solo lunch after some spa treatments. Ordered off the 1917 menu, lovely food and real value for money. The staff were very nice and I treated myself to a glass of Champagne. However the noise does echo around the room and as I have hearing problems it drowned out anything people said to me.

The service was exceptional and Raymond was very pleasant and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant was very beautiful. We cannot wait to visit again. Thank you.

    Very disappointed, hadn’t been for a while due to previous disappointment, birthday meal after shopping with daughter, didn’t spare any expense on choices, standards and quality didn’t reflect the suppossed expectations, drinks were over iced watered down quickly, tiny tiny table, felt quite awkward, couldn’t wait to get out of there. Don’t mind the cost if reflected in quality of ingredients, have better choice and standards at my local gastro pub restaurant.
    The Ivy Temple RowResponded 4 days ago
    Hello ToniP, Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback following you visit on Sunday. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit. Had we been made aware that you where not happy with your allocated table we would of happily of moved you both. We have made a note on your booking to ensure that a table to the side of the restaurant is only offered in the future. We have also shared your review with our Bar Manager regarding your champagne mojito containing to much ice. Again this will be fed to their team. Once again we are very sorry that you have left feeling disappointed, especially as it was a celebration. We have updated your booking profile to ensure that you are looked after on your next visit. Many thanks, The Ivy Temple Row

    We chose The Ivy for my MIL’s birthday and it didn’t disappoint. Staff were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We had cocktails at the bar whilst we waited for our table and the bartender was amazing. He made my 6YO boy a “special” cocktail and he was over the moon! The afternoon tea was delicious and great value. Would definitely recommend.

    We are big fans of the Ivy but this visit was disappointing. Quality of the roast dinner was poor. Soggy potatoes and over done meat (we ordered pink). We didn’t complain as it would have detracted from the event - which was a birthday- so didn’t want to make a fuss. They did bring a cake with a candle and the waitress was lovely but completely run off her feet. Not what we were expecting or normally get. Has put me off slightly.

    Appalling service. Not what we are used to from Ivy Restauarants. I stated in the booking it was a special occassion. We were given a small table that could not hold our water, cocktails or wine bottle. They sat us next to the waiters serving area, not a pleasant experience. I spoke to the Manager. He was indifferent and aloof. I spent £204 on the meal for two. There are far better restauarants in the Birmingham Central area. The Ivy inn Cardiff was perfect on our last visit on a busy International Rugby night. Pity my local Ivy Restauarant cannot offer the same service or experience

    Busy Thursday lunchtime: the table was fine for 3 of us would have been a bit of a squeeze with 4 (sadly one of the group was ill so cound'nt make it) Good service from staff who gave us plenty of time to select our food and drink, they could see we had a lot to catch up on! Convivial atmosphere, good food, reasonably priced is why we enjoy meeting and eating here.

    I was at a business lunch and the waiter knocked a whole glass of wine over onto me, all over my suit and white shirt. Dabbed me down with a cloth and pretended it never happened, didn't even offer me a free bottle or money off the bill. Not ideal.

    Food is always good. But the service was terrible. This is the second time that drinks arrived after our food. I found the waitress abrupt and rude, which is a real shame as usually the service is always topknotch. I hesitantly paid the service charge, but on reflection, I wish I hadn’t. No service with a smile, No happy birthday to my friend, just plonked the happy bday plate on the table and walked off, same with our mains and desserts. Terrible service and Ivy is one of my favourite place in Birmingham to go to. Whether busy or not, it doesn’t hurt to be polite and courteous… not the service you expect with the Ivy brand!

    Had a fantastic lunch here yesterday. Everything was lovely -food, drink, service. We chose from the fixed price menu and enjoyed it immensely - a few choices but something to suit both of us. Will definitely return.

    We greatly appreciated the welcome - along with the glasses of champagne in recognition of our less than perfect experience on our last visit - that was impressive! The meal was good (even though our zucchini fritti were over salted for our taste) and wine and service was excellent. We had a delightful evening and will be back , hopefully to enjoy the excellent attention of Vincenzo once again as he made our evening! Thank you.
    The Ivy Temple RowResponded on 9 May 2024

    Just a great night with great food. The location is perfect from the Birmingham New Street railway station at 4 minutes or my hotel which was 10 mins from venue.

    We took Ralph our grandson to The Ivy in Birmingham as part of his 9th Birthday treat today. Apparently, according to him, your burgers at the Ivy are nearly as good as McDonald’s! I had fish and chips. My fish was rather grey which was disappointing.
    The Ivy Temple RowResponded on 8 May 2024
    Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review following your visit on Sunday. We are so pleased to hear that your Grandson enjoyed their birthday celebrations with us - however we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoyed your fish and chips.
