Very poor service. Allergies were not taken seriously, kept us waiting to the point we has to chase our alternative option for food. I frequent The Ivy often and treated a friend. I was embarrassed and disappointed at the service as I told my friend about the amazing service

We had a lovely meal, great food, service was excellent. Maybe one criticism that I couldn’t really see what I was eating as lighting was lowered but we were sat under the ornate tree upstairs and even with a candle it was dark:

We went to The Ivy Birmingham for our anniversary and both absolutely loved it. The staff were very friendly from start to finish and the place has a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and the portions were plenty.
They even gave us a free desert for our celebration which was the cherry on the cake so to speak. Would highly recommend this place!

Average experience expected more. Menu was nothing special, than a normal pub menu. ordered a duck curry but ended up with a vegan curry. The frozen berries for pudding was bitter and so was my husbands apple tart. Don’t think we would return.

Our waiter was very friendly and made sure we had everything we wanted. The service was a little slow but they were busy. I order the eggs Benedict which was delicious except for the chunky chips. They were not hot and they were lots of bits and not proper chips. It was like we’d had yesterdays leftovers.

Whilst the waitress we had was very nice and helpful the food was incredibly slow to arrive to our table and unfortunately not as good as we had hoped.

The Ivy should be the standard for all restaurants to aim for. It is therefore a lovely place to share a great meal with delightful company

Wonderful evening, as usual.
Lovely anniversary treat as a surprise.
Our only slight niggle is how dark it was which makes it hard to effectively read the menu!

Nice atmosphere, informal but efficient. Good attention from the staff on a busy evening, they were working hard but always smiled. Well done to all staff.
Food slightly overpriced I think but still impressive

Staff, cocktails and venue all superb. However, the food was bad and as a foodie I wouldn’t recommend. Much better places to eat, but definitely a great spot for a drink.

Usually we had a very poor meal, I have been to the Ivy many times and it has never disappointed but something was a bit off this night,

No fish in the fish and chips, dry and tasteless, and chips tasted like they had been left standing for a while,

first-class response removed one meal cost and waved service charge, great response but would of preferred a good meal.
