I would certainly go again and it's great to see an offshoot of The Ivy in Brum.
I liked almost everything but two things: there was pigeon or partridge or something on the menu and without asking the waitress told us it would taste like chicken - ie as if we were a bit ignorant (actually I am a bit ignorant as I don't eat meat), then as she was clearing the table for dessert the waitress asked if we would like to take the remaining bread home - ie as if we are very poor and needed the bread.
Apart from that it's a welcome addition to the Birmingham restaurant scene.

We enjoyed a lovely 25th a Wedding Anniversary meal here. Great corner table and superb food. Service was excellent and the ‘Happy Anniversary’ dessert that was brought out was a nice surprise!

Food was excellent but service was poor. Arrived at 13.30 and finally got our main course at 14.20 (we weren't having a starter). Kept having to chase up waitress and wine wasn't topped up promptly. Had a lot of wine left in the bottle after the main course.
We were meeting friends at 15.30 and had to chase dessert to fit it in.
Will think twice about going back given the poor service.

Unfortunately, my birthday dinner was ruined by the experience. All the meals came out cold and some weren't even cooked properly. There was no flavour or seasoning to the food in all honesty. They returned one of our pork dishes raw twice! It wasn't what I expected after hearing such great reviews of the food. The manager was lovely enough to take the food off our bill and gave free drinks but we left hungry as we didn't want to risk ordering any more dishes. It was thoroughly disappointing and I wouldn't come back nor would I recommend. A birthday dinner thoroughly spoilt. But our waiter was a gem though. It seems like most people were complaining about their food not being up to the standard of The Ivy that night. Very disappointing.

Unfortunately having waited almost 50mins for the main course I was brought the wrong order . When the main was returned my wife's was lukewarm at best as I presume it had been left standing during the reorder disappointing as it had been a meal out for our wedding anniversary

There was a mix up with our order, my friend ordered plain salmon & when her food came it was a steak sandwich. We then waited for 40 mins for all of our food to arrive. We were apologised to by the manager & given complementary drinks & service charge removed from the bill. I love the Ivy, the food the atmosphere & will definitely visit again. The situation was dealt with professionally by the management team

Excellent early dining special menu served before 6.30pn, beautiful flavours & great value.

A tiny issue - I sat at the bar waiting for my pal to arrive. Purchased & paid for a glass of wine & surprised that 12.5% service charge added on to that. Understand perfectly acceptable for table service.

Staff very pleasant and attentive. Decor attractive. Two slight reservations, some of the tables are too close together and the noise level, at busy times, on the ground floor, means you have raise your voice to be heard.

My third visit and it was excellent again. The staff are very professional and well trained yet ‘friendly ‘. The Ivy also gave me a table I specifically requested which ,considering how many tables were full, was excellent service! Food was well presented and good quality. Not cheap - and veg as an extra cost always rankles a tad yet you accept it - but the overall ambience and enjoyment is worth it. A fourth visit for sure when next in Brum !

Due to it being a very busy lunchtime our table was late. The staff were very apologetic and did inform us and came over a couple of times while we waited.

Food took quite a long time - again down to how busy that particular lunch session was, but even when the restaurant had died down to a very quiet level with few people in there the waiting staff had to chase our deserts.

Food was excellent and staff were lovely but as this was a business lunch the delay was somewhat frustrating.

The food and service (particularly at the bar) on arrival was excellent. However we waited for a long time for our food - perhaps nearly an hour. It was not until we started pulling pained faces at the table and looking at watches that we were given an update. We had some drinks knocked off the bill which was an appropriate gesture. The food once arrived was excellent and enjoyed by all. sadly the delay meant we could not stay for dessert or coffee. This won't stop me visiting again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Ivy, Temple Row. We chose the venue for my husband's 50th birthday and wouldn't hesitate to choose the same for another special celebration. The staff were professional and attentive and the food was delicious. A five star experience

I attended the Ivy for my mom's birthday and I wasn't disappointed. We were made to feel special from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The food was outstanding and the waiters very courteous and attentive. The setting was very relaxed and comfortable and not too noisy which was perfect for chatting over lunch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Ivy and look forward to returning soon!
