    Love the Ivy in Birmingham. Always a fantastic service, very attentive without being over bearing. Table was ready when we arrived so we missed just sitting at the bar taking in the buzz. Unfortunately, we could only manage a starter and main, but the pudding looked fabulous. I can’t wait until our next visit.

    Lovely table but the way we were served was poor. Starters and main were all delivered to the wrong person and just plonked down in front of us. Not even ‘who’s having???’ The waiting staff reached over us all through the meal and when the mains were swapped to the right person the hot plate was ever so close to mums face. Not nice at all. It was mums birthday meal so didn’t mention anything so as not to spoil her meal. Seen better service at a vintage inn.

    Excellent service from all the staff. The afternoon tea was amazing. Explained what each item was. Sandwiches were very tasty and all the cakes were divine. The juice in the little bottle was an extra treat. - very healthy. Staff checked all was ok and whether we needed anything else. The whole experience was fantastic and it was a 70th birthday treat for my cousin which I would highly recommend. Thank you

    Myself and my partner travelled from London and Manchester respectively to celebrate my boyfriend qualifying as a doctor and chose The Ivy, as having previously dined in branches across the UK (myself, having dined at Temple Row a few years ago), believed that it would be a wonderful celebratory lunch. We were very disappointed by the overall experience, but mostly in relation to the quality of the food itself. We ordered from the lunch time set menu (2 courses for £19.95) plus extras. The starter (arancini as an extra and the buffalo mozzarella) was very good and we enjoyed those. Our mains however, were not the standard we expect from The Ivy. My boyfriend ordered the steak and extra peppercorn sauce, and I had the Malaysian prawn curry. The steak was of poor quality and wasn't particularly pleasant to eat. My curry was lukewarm at best and was not a pleasant dish either, as it had neither any curry sauce with it and was served with a filo-pastry Yorkshire-pudding-esque accompaniment, which did not marry with the curry. We then shared a creme brûlée, which again, was just about room temperature (though went cold after a few minutes). When I brought this up with the waitress, we were told that it cannot be served warm as this would curdle the custard. Neither myself or my boyfriend have ever been served creme brûlée at lukewarm temperature and I must question whether the statement that serving the dessert hot would curdle it, given that creme brûlée is very often served hot - and that is how we have both always had it. Neither of us finished our mains or dessert. I hope that this was a one off and that, should we ever return to The Ivy, we may have a different experience. I personally feel very disappointed as I had booked this occasion as a celebration. The Ivy is a high-end restaurant with a price tag to match and so with that, we expect excellent quality food, which unfortunately wasn’t the case.

    I booked online and said I was gluten intollerant. On speaking toWaitress she asked if either was intollerant I said I was and I’d put that online. Then brought2 afternoon teas,one gluten free. Subsequently gave gluten free to my friend, only on informing us of food was it confirmed she’d given gluten free to my friend and mine contained gluten. 🤦‍♀️ Bread and scones were soo dry,brownie was inedible, shot disgusting, a yoghurt thing with bits of coconut and summer fruit coulis My friends bomb thing was dry as were scones she also found shot inedible. We both left more than we ate. £86 the most expensive and worse afternoon tea I’ve ever had

    we went to the ivy for a birthday treat, we have been twice before and it was very good, Sadly on our third visit it was not as good, the service was to say the least very poor, very long waiting times between ordering and getting you food or drinks, on arrival we had to wait for a table despite booking weeks in advance whilst people who just dropped in were found a table right away, not very impressed with that. once we were seated there was a bit of a wait before our order was taken, then a very long Waite for our starters to arrive, there was an even longer Waite for the main course, so long we had to chase the waiter for an ETA, when the main course did eventually arrive, only two were brought out of three ordered, we had a further Waite for the third. When we placed our order there was no opportunity offered to order side dishes, the waitress seemed to have more interesting things to do . At the end of the main course we were offered the desert menu and we ordered two items, again we were not offered the chance to order coffee and tea etc, again the waitress seemed to have more interesting things to do Saying that the IVY is supposedly one of the better restaurants in the city centre this performance and level of service is very below average and based on our previous visits appalling to say the least, We will think long and hard about booking at the ivy again based on our last experience. in short it was not worth the high end price they charged and we feel that we have been robbed of the better part of £200.00 that the bill came to.

    We were running late because of traffic and the staff were extremely helpful in terms of seating us quickly and taking orders. Unfortunately my wife and I both chose the Malaysian Monkfish and Prawn Curry and are both extremely unwell today. Obviously cannot point the finger at the curry but it was the only dish we both ate yesterday.

    The service wasn’t great. We waited a long time between courses, we had to remind staff on missed elects if the order and the wine wasn’t poured at the table. Food was great for the money though. Mixed experience. We paid the service charge but I don’t feel it reflected the service we received.

    Having visited this location previously and other locations, was disappointed with this visit. Understand it was a busy Easter Sunday afternoon when we visited, however it should not take over 3 hours for 6 people to have a 3 course meal. There should be enough resource within the business to cope with these busy periods - although it did seem like there were more than enough staff on the floor during our visit, we just felt invisible! Took an hour from being seated for our starters to arrive, wrong items were bought to the table, ordered a non-alc cooler and was served a Bellini, one of the £35 fillet steaks ordered was fatty. One of our party ordered the Rum Baba for dessert which came to the table and was nice with a hint of alcohol. A few minutes after they had started eating it, a server came over and dumped a fair amount of rum onto the dessert which was so strong and made it completely inedible. They didn't ask prior if we wanted this before pouring it on - the menu says 'rum soaked sponge' - nothing about rum being added to it upon delivery to the table! Disappointing experience when we were out to celebrate Birthday's & a new job.

    Taken to a table in the attic where the bogs were and was expected to accept it. 3 minutes later I walked out. This might be acceptable for the council estate kid Rod Stewart ( pictured on the website) but definitely not for me. Will leave the IVY to the “STARS” as there welcome to it!!!

    Yesterday was very busy indeed at the Ivy, which one would expect on a Saturday late afternoon/evening Bank Holiday weekend. The service was quite chaotic. Our bread didn't come until the main courses had been delivered, although we were kept informed that there would be a wait. We also didn't know where our bottle of wine was being kept and couldn't refill our own glasses. However, this was rectified by a complimentary bottle being supplied after we managed to flag this up. It was difficult to get anyone's attention as staff seemed over-loaded and I was told at one point, when I did manage to get someone, via a message relayed to the hosts, that there was absolutely NO olive oil and balsamic available at all. Only butter..... but when I pressed the point, a little dish of each arrived on the table. The staff seemed very stressed but were doing their best, and this affected my experience negatively as I did not feel relaxed and my friends sensed this. Towards the end of the meal things seem to calm down a little and we did manage to have some light hearted banter with a Manager/Maitre d'. I went to meet friends downstairs in the bar afterwards which was more relaxed and the bar staff were friendly and efficient. The Ivy is usually my favourite restaurant in Birmingham.

    I visited this restaurant on my birthday. Given that when booking it asks whether you are celebrating an event, I was disappointed that no consideration to my birthday celebrations was noted on arrival. The table we were given was ok and there was no mention of any celebration. So I was definitely disappointed overall. The food was good but overall I didn’t really enjoy my night.
    The Ivy Temple RowResponded on 1 April 2024
    Good afternoon ElleR, thank you for your kind words about your server Melissa, I will make sure to pass those on to her. We are very sorry that your birthday did not get mentioned during your visit. We will make sure to keep mentioning how important this is to acknowledge in our staff briefings and how this can really impact someone's experience. Kind regards, The Ivy Temple Row

    I purchased a £100 voucher and was given a £20 gift card. When I tried to cash these, the system wouldn't accept the gift card. The cashier took an item off my bill to try to rectify the problem. However, I was still out of pocket, as the item removed was not the same value as my gift card. I would like you to look into this problem. Thank you Margaret Edge

    Good Afternoon MargaretE. Thank you for your high rating. I have emailed you personally in regards to this query after having done an investigation. Kind Regards, The Ivy Temple Row.
