    We booked a group of 8 for an afternoon tea for my sisters 40th. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive. The food was incredible. There was so much of it, but everything was light so we managed it all. So a lovely way to celebrate. Thank you so much. Best afternoon tea in Birmingham

    The Ivy is a beautiful place. Our table for 4 was perfect the by the window in a less noisy area. The other tables very close together with no ambiance, making the place very noisy! I’ve heard such a lot about The Ivy but my opinion very over rated. The staff were friendly but dashing about like headless chickens, it should have been a relaxing time!! The food sandwiches lovely but 3 needed more and less cakes. The scones would have been enough for us. The milk shake was lovely but not needed. Tea was nice, but think we should have been informed how heavy the tea pots were and Very Hot to touch, in all very disappointing.

    We visited The Ivy for our anniversary breakfast, we were greeted with warmth on arrival and blown away with the stunning decor. Our drinks and breakfast were both beautifully presented and tasted just as good as it looked. We were also given an anniversary treat to help us celebrate, thank you to you all, what a beautiful restaurant you have, we hope to see you soon. Many thanks

    Lovely table on the upper level, our server was excellent. Very cheerful and helpful. Sadly they changed shifts before we left so we were unable to thank her personally. Food was up to the usual high standard, and great to see the rum baba has made a return! With a cocktail to start the perfect Friday lunch.

    We have dined at the Ivy, Temple Row for birthday celebrations before. And we were not disappointed on this occasion either. Delicious menu and great service from friendly and knowledgeable staff who go the extra mile to help you enjoy your time there. Dessert was the Showstopper. A tennis ball made from chocolate that disappears once the strawberry sauce is added. It then reveals strawberries and shortbread. Yum!

    perfect venue for my birthday lunch, lovely art decor fittings & art work , Theresa, our waitress was charming and very accomodating in making room for my daughter & friend who joined us at short notice. D & friend had starters of crispy duck salad & tomato soup,which they said were very tasty, but we thought that £2.50 for a slice of bread was a bit steep -my lemon sole was really moist and delicious. A lovely surprise came at the end of the meal when I was presented with a complimentary birthday chocolate covered choux bun, filled with choc gnach plus candle

    Excellent service as received on previous visits from the minute you enter the building, through to leaving. The food was full of flavour, received in a timely manner and well received by both myself and my guests. Would highly recommend for any meal time, for any occasions, both formal (work etc incl) or family / friends get together...

    Had a wonderful joint birthday celebration meal at the Ivy Temple Row. The food was extremely good, particularly the Plant based Malaysian curry. We were surprised with a Happy Birthday profiterole each at the end of the meal which was lovely. The waiting team were attentive, friendly and helpful. Will definitely return here.

    Omg ...we had such a lovely evening for my Sisters birthday. We absolutely loved our Waiter...he was so friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and professional. The steak we ordered was perfect. Loved the decor ..OK my review is Love Love Love everything about the Ivy. Loved the position of the table, I was worried being in the corner that either of us would have our back to the other diners but the positioning was perfect! We'll definitely be back. Oh did I say our Waiter was perfect! 😀
