    Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. The ambience is incredible - amazing venue, beautifully decorated and attention to detail is spot on. Food was wonderful, staff attentive and friendly and we had a wonderful time. The lady who waited on us first (whose shift clearly finished part way through our meal) was absolutely amazing and deserves special recognition!

    Early evening dinner with my wife before going to see Les Miserables. Everything was perfect from the welcome on arrival to the attentive service and the food…. Could not fault a thing. Thank you, I normally have something to criticise but no this time. Steak tartare and 2 x fish and chips

    A summer meet up of 5 friends. We were so well looked after. Our main course salmon was only warm and when we queried it they were immediately replaced and we were given desserts as a gift!! We enjoy the Ivy and will return soon.

    The food was lovely. All dishes were well presented and beautifully seasoned. The only disappointing part of the meal was the red wine. The merlot lacked depth and value.

    I turned up early so we had a couple of drinks at the Bar , The bartender made a lovely gin & tonic . unfortunately at the table the service was extremely slow, The waiters completely forgot my glass of wine took in which it 20 minutes to come over. He offered a large class but still charged £15 ( for 1) The cod & chips was so overcooked, burnt on the edges set my son struggle to cut through it , which I did give feedback to the waiter who just nodded , no apology. A real shame as this was a treat for me and my son and as it’s not particularly cheap and I wanted the experience to be nice.

    Initially the first waitress was very attentive and probably overly friendly. Asking us for our order 2 mins after being seated. The food took a long time to arrive and arrived cold, with the taste of being reheated in a microwave. Once the main course had been finished. A very long time for clear up and dessert requests. Once the dessert menu had been offered. It took an extremely long time to take the order request from the second indifferent waitress. At which point the dining party fed up and out of time decided to leave. This IVY may have the look but it lacks the attention to good service and delivery of hot food found in other branches. Most especially found in London

    Delicious food with wonderful service and in beautiful surroundings. Our corner table was just what we asked for. The head waiter was attentive but not intrusive and the food was beautifully presented. A good choice of wine and drinks. The ladies cloakroom has to be seen to be believed. It’s fantastic.

    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.
