The Ivy Temple Row
Fri, Sat 08:00–23:30
The walls of The Archer Room are adorned with colourful vintage prints and locally referenced artwork inspired by the industrial revolution, steam engine and rail, theatre, ballet and cricket. The dark timber flooring, lantern pendant lighting, dark green leather upholstery and Art Deco-style add a touch of glamour to the space.
The room is versatile, and as equally suited to private parties and celebrations as it is to corporate breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The space provides the ideal setting for entertaining friends, family and clients in Birmingham. Complimentary menu cards and place cards are provided for each event and each table is decorated with seasonal flowers and tea lights.
Staff were friendly, venue is beautiful and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.
Delicious food, great varied menu, lots of gluten free options.
It was my birthday and they really looked after us and bought over a couple of complimentary salted caramel espresso martinis. Beautiful decor and comfortable environment .
Me and my family went to The Ivy on Sunday for my daughters 14th birthday. The waitress wished her happy birthday straight away and brought her a special dessert with a lit candle which made her feel extra special. The food we ordered was lovely. I will definitely go again. In fact already booked for December.
Food very tasty but portions very small and then having to order extra sides as none come with main meal. Taste good tho x
Service was slow. Would of expected the service to flow. Had to call for service every time we wanted a drink. I would expect with afternoon tea you would be asked for coffee/tea regually. I would expect better service from this type of restaurant.
Came for lunch with a friend, really friendly welcome from door hosts, the decor is amazing and there's a really nice lively atmosphere in there without it being at all noisy. Food and service were both very nice but nothing special, but not too expensive there so pretty good value
Ignore the poor reviews about this restaurant, it's great! The food is lovely, the menu choice extensive certainly for lunch, and the service is superb with very smiley waitresses which is a delight. I booked online, got a confirmation and a reminder. Great experience overall and I will definitely go back 😀
It’s our third visit to The Ivy in Birmingham. We love the restaurant and the food. It’s somewhere we will definitely be returning too.
Service was especially good and food was excellent.
My better half took me here for a SundayBrunch and the place is amazing
The service was impeccable, the food was amazing and reasonable priced given city location and the services received
Particularly the waiters and waitresses are attentive without being annoying
Couldn’t fault it at all 5 stars in all areas
Will be re booking at every possibility
I have been to the Ivy for an evening meal with my husband and I have also taken my 11 year old daughter for breakfast. Both were wondering experiences, with amazing service and beautiful food. Just got to book in for lunch now, which I plan on doing soon.
Lovely food, great cocktails, personable service, perfect ambience
Excellent food, not as expensive as I was expecting. Lively atmosphere - ideal for a Saturday night out with friends.
Recommend the salted caramel espresso martini!
Excellent food, great ambience and decor - the Ivy is the place for fine dining in a relaxed yet formal setting. It’s beautifully decorated and quirky and the food is delicious, flavoursome and mouth watering, all the bells and whistles and a few more hums after that. The menu is varied and will have something for everyone.
The staff give great customer service, I was served Loris and Julianne and they were excellent, professional and patient, explaining the finer details of each dish and not shy to recommend and laugh with you.
All in all a fantastic place to take it all in. 10/10
Very friendly staff, good good, great atmosphere. Good menu.
Lovely lunch date with my sis! We both had the roast beef baguette and were both in love!! Our new fave spot. Only negative that the tables are so close together. Well done The Ivy...
Really nice polite staff very friendly, food was very nice, no delays, no pressure to leave after eaten our food, place was very busy and the interior was stunning
On our way to a Gin Tasting, we booked in for a late brunch. We really enjoyed the crab linguini with a glass of prosecco and followed it up with the rum baba and an Americano coffee, the whole meal was delicious. When the bill came we noticed we had been charged £9.75 for a glass of champagne which we hadn't had and asked our waiter about this. He quickly removed this from our bill.
Lovely food and great service, I will definitely be back
Went on a Saturday lunchtime for Brunch with a friend travelling down from the North. Arrived 15 minutes earlier than our booking time and were seated at Bar to get a drink whilst we waited for our table. After 30minutes and numerous people arriving after us being seated I had to ask for our table - we had been forgotten!!! Table was nice but seated near to a large group of women who were very loud...two tables near us requested to move as couldn’t hear each other over the noise!
Ordered another drink, browsed menu and then ordered food. Food arrived before drinks and had to call waitress back to ask for drinks we had ordered 20 minutes prior. Friend ordered fish cakes with poached egg on top and the egg was raw!!! It was slimy underneath and uncooked, waitress took it away and offered to take my meal also so we could eat together. Waited another 20 minutes and food eventually was re-delivered, when it was it was lovely.
After meal when we got the bill we were surprised to see no gesture had been given for the delay in table, drinks or raw food being served. Rather embarrassingly we had to ask waitress for some sort of discount or gesture, eventually the Manager took 2 glasses of Prosecco off the bill.
Also during this time the table next to us also sent food back and had to be re-served it.
For what was supposed to be a celebratory brunch for a friends work promotion in a prestigious well known restaurant in the city we were left underwhelmed and a bit disappointed after looking forward to the day for a few weeks and her travelling for the occasion.
I enjoyed my trip to the Ivy. The food was good although we waited for a long time
for drinks and chips to accompany our meal. It’s much bigger than we anticipated and quite noisy. Tables very close together. It didn’t feel very exclusive, unlike the London version.
The menu choice was just right and the food was outstanding.. I was pleased that the waiters did not constantly come over to pour the wine which can be irritating, however it did take a while to attract attention to order another bottle of wine. Having said that it was an exceptionally busy Friday night.
Went on Friday evening and had an amazing fabulous time. Food was delicious and service excellent. A real must if you haven’t been yet!
Busy and slightly crowded in the ground floor dining area. The food was fantastic.
Unfortunately can not grant 5 stars for all categories as our wine, which is kept on a “station” and not at your table, was being served to the next table and we received their house wine! This was rectified to a point, however I would have preferred our wine to be left on our table. A needless upset that marred our enjoyment.
Great atmosphere for a lunchtime. good value for money and non intrusive staff who were really pleasant when needed but did not hover. Sat at the bar for a while. again staff non intrusive. Venue felt very luxurious but comfortable, loved the decor. Will be recommending this venue to others and will be back in the new year.
We went to The Ivy for my daughter's birthday. The food, service and atmosphere was amazing and the staff brought out a small birthday cake and candle for her. Great afternoon.
Lovely restaurant for a special occasion, treat or a quick drink. Friendly staff, exclusive enough without a ridiculous price tag and not pretentious at all. Would highly recommend.
The special evening was enhanced by the service provided by Georgia. She is a credit to your restaurant, helpful when making menu selections, friendly, available when needed. Thank you
Met with some school friends for lunch, service fantastic, food delisous thankyou. Looking forward to my next visit.
This was our first visit to the Ivy.
Our dining experience was enhanced by the excellent service we were given.
We will certainly be returning.
Amazing food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff ( think Becky was our waitress) she was so lovely x
Enjoyed the Ivy experience very much, a must when looking for quality dining.
Great service, food was lovely.
Can't wait to come back.
I was treated to lunch at the Ivy Birmingham as a belated birthday treat back in Aug/Sept and enjoyed the experience so much I decided to take a friend there for lunch as an early Christmas present (What do you buy a lady who has every thing ) well the answer to that is, lunch at the Ivy. We had a fabulous meal and an altogether wonderful experience, from the two staff on the meet and greet desk to one member of the staff obliging us by taking a photo as we were leaving. The waiting on staff were so attentive and nothing was to much trouble for them. The only down side at the Ivy Birmingham is there are no toilets at ground level and no lift. My friend could not cope with the stairs to the toilets.
The whole experience was excellent with exceptional value for money.
Great place to enjoy good food and conversation. The staff at reception, the bar and table service were amazing. Instantly booked for another date upon leaving!
Went for second time yesterday for lunch but not as impressed this time . Bit of a wait at the bar and I could not see why as there were 2 staff members neither of who made eye contact to say " with you in a minute" even though there were only about 4 ladies in a group being served champagne x Good table service, great ambiance and decor but disliked the seating sitting on the back wall which means one of us was facing the wall and also tables too close to each other. Food was excellent and well presented but for me the whole experience did not match my previous one . Also asked for the bill which never appeared so after 5 minutes I went to the till to obtain it
Lovely afternoon at the Ivy, we were looked after throughout our visit, waiting staff very attentive. Waiter on the bar very knowledgeable really helpful and friendly.
My friends had not been before and were all very impressed!!
Our company often uses this restaurant for business lunch meetings. Not far from New Street, great food and the service we cant not fault.
Good food, good service and left you wanting to go back.
Had an excellent birthdays dinner at the ivy. Excellent food, service and ambiance; couldn't ask for more!
