Steak was tough and chewy. Requested bread that never came and waited 40 minutes before flagging down a waiter so we could eventually order some food. Drinks took way too long to come as well. Service was very happy and smiley, staff very nice and polite, just very slow and forgetful.

We had a great time for my mother's birthday.

However, my father had the Sirloin steak and had to leave at least half of it as it was riddled with fat and gristle. He didn't complain as he just wanted my mother to have a good time and not spoil it.

I complained after the meal and the manager took the charge off the bill which was appreciated.

I am concerned that the kitchen didn't see that the quality of the steak was poor prior to serving. It was quite evident that it was not acceptable.

Other than that we had a good time, all the other food was great and the service excellent.

The ambiance was good. The food was very low quality, avocados were frozen, the bread was stale and the chicken was so tough that we left it. Overall we wouldn’t visit the place again.

Although the food was good service was slow and one of the staff members quite rude. Party of 5 felt squashed on what should have been a table of 4. My first time here and was expecting something more outstanding. Very disappointing

Lovely evening for two. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the tables are a bit close together

The server Shezy was brilliant and to be honest it was his service and the lovely table allocated that increased our rating. The only disappointment was the food, which for the Ivy was very average. The chicken milanese was bland and the shepherds pie was no better than a M&S meal deal. I really think that the Ivy has the service, location and ambience to be brilliant but the food needs to be revisited.

From cloakroom, table directing, staff and waiters and waitresses, too beautiful décor, everything at the Ivy Temple Row Birmingham was fabulous.
The excellent waiter service from Cliebe, and beautiful food and drink made our birthday treat very special. The little birthday cake was a lovely touch with our Ivy Sling Cocktail.
Will definitely return to the Ivy and definitely recommend ing to our family and friends.

Great place, lovely surroundings, food and service really good just do object to the amount of service charge automatically added to the villa, i.e £11.00 odd pounds on a £ 93.00 bill so more than 10%

We had been given a voucher for The Ivy for Christmas and finally got around to using it.
It was really worth while.
Lovely place, staff, food and drink couldn't be faulted!
Would definately recommend.
Tables could have had a little more space between them (we sat on the banquette seating opposite the stairs) but not a problem.
