The service and food is excellent, Staff are attentive . The only down side this time was a very noisy table behind us ,who were a little too loud . this would not deter me visiting again in the near future

Lovely meal, great service. Tables used to be packed in too tight but now some have been removed for covid it is much nicer. We had a lovely evening. Head waitress was exceptional.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Ivy in Birmingham. The food was excellent, service fantastic. The food is good value for money, however, drinks are a tad expensive as is the service charge.

Our fourth Ivy venue and we were very impressed that the Ivy's standard was as high as ever. Excellent food, service and the design of the Birmingham restaurant is stunning . Only slight negative was rather too loud music, made conversation a little difficult at times.

Initially slow service. Drinks did not arrive before the food which was frustrating. Difficult to hear staff with masks on due to general noise level. Clear face masks would be better.

Each occasion I have been to the Ivy I’ve always had great service and the food is cooked to perfection. I really enjoy the experience and appreciate their attention to detail.
The waitress that served us was knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions. The staff are professional without being over pretentious.

Couldn't fault the food, absolutely amazing, but things happen on our visit that made the dining experience wishy-washy. A server missed her step and the plates came crashing down, our bill came and we had drinks charged for bar service but we never left the table, then when trying to pay she repeated what should be taken off but when we expected £40.56 she took £60.40 then told us it will take 5 days to refund, after 2 re-bills and more mistakes I just paid the balance just to get out of there. Not my first time but I bought 3 new people and that's what they will go away remembering, service was unacceptable for The Ivy. Would it stop me going back again no, but sort out your servers.
Also I noticed you aren't that kind to meat eaters, I've never seen so much fish, not a problem for me but was for one of my guests.

Gorgeous birthday lunch for my friend. She/we thoroughly enjoyed everything from the service to the amazing food, particularly the duck salad starter, could have eaten that all day!
Thank you to The Ivy and your lovely team 👏

First time I have been to the Ivy, but my wife has been there before and it was her idea to go there for a special occasion for us and I am very glad we did. The whole experience was great and especially the way Julia our table service looked after us and her lovely personality. We ill be back soon
