    Beautiful restaurant, basic food, very expensive. Staff were polite and professional. service was good, no waiting. Basic British food, mains do not include sides, they are charged extra. The specials menu included veal in bread crumbs, which was very dry and rather tasteless. I do not like the 12 and a half % service charge? The Ivy is a treat meal that most people cant afford, we paid £125 for 1 starter, 2 mains, 3 sides, 1 gin, 1 small wine, 1 dessert.

    Lovely food and staff at the Birmingham restaurant very accommodating and friendly. I have been here twice now and had a very good experience at the restaurant itself both times. However the staff who man their booking platform via email and phone are very rude and unhelpful. It is like they are 2 different companies.

    I have been to the Birmingham Ivy once before and felt it was nice, but probably wouldn’t go again, however we were gifted a voucher This time the service and food were very good My only complaint is that you add a service charge I feel it is up to the individual to add a tip

    Although the food was not outstanding, the athmosphere was absolutely perfect. We've been there for 2-2 and a half hour and I just couldn't stop talking about how amazing the place looked. The service was amazing as well, the waiter whoe served us was very helpful with the menu, helped us make some pictures and overall made the experience even better. I wouldn't go for the food (we had an afternoon tea) as it was good but nothing special but because of the service and the athmosphere I would be more than happy to suggest it to anyone and I we will definitely be back when we next go to Birmingham. It is a truly amazing place.

    Saturday lunch with a friend. Booking for 1.45, the place was packed. We have been before and love the weekend brunch menu but we're told it was not available and so we're very disappointed. The food we had was good (monkfish curry and fish and chips, both had the chocolate bomb). Service was very slow and we did not get out until almost 4.00! 2 hours 15 minutes for 2 people to eat lunch was longer than necessary.

    Such a lovely friendly and relaxed ambience. Staff were friendly and attentive and the service was efficient but unhurried making our lunch very relaxed. We were celebrating a ruby wedding anniversary and the lucky couple were presented with a fabulous chocolate desert which was such a lovely and personal touch. I love the Ivy I will definitely be back
