This was our first time at The Ivy and we really enjoyed it. There were four in our party and everyone enjoyed their food. We would highly recommend.

Food needs to be improved
Had to send my steak back as not medium rare but well done
For the amount of money needs to be better

The food & drink was very good, the restaurant very busy but the seat & table we had was very comfortable. It was obvious that some guests (Regular) were being treated differently to other guests in the restaurant, I would expect all guests to be treated equal. There was a private party upstairs that were very noisy and not aware of guest below them. I probably would think twice if I was to bring another important guest with for dinner again.

Food was lovely, but we were very rushed - we hadn't even received our drinks before the first course arrived. Then it was replaced by the second course within 2 minutes of the starter plate being cleared away - we would have preferred a more relaxed dining experience.
Ambiance was nice and the view amazing. Cloakroom not very organised, as they couldn't find my coat at the end of our meal!

Not comparable with Food experienced at other Ivy Cafes.

Salmon was under-cooked, burger was overdone with a dry bun and the food arrived worryingly quickly (for a Saturday evening) - we had barely touched our drinks.

Location of table (tables in this area) felt like a thoroughfare.

I wouldn't rush back to this particular branch.

We had 3 rounds of drinks all the same, but with each round they got some wrong - either they were not listening properly or they just couldn't be bothered. Whilst I am a where that the table bookings are for a period of 2 hours it would have been nice if our meal could have taken that length of time, we were seated and our meal finished within 1 HOUR!!!!! everything felt very rushed and we were not really allowed to enjoy the food, or have a break between each course. Neither were we asked if we require anything else as the food was delivered this was only done towards the end and when they brought the mustard for my partners steak it was too late as he had finished it.

Awful food that was under-cooked (actually cold when it should have been hot) and grossly over priced.

I love this branch of the ivy. The staff are genuinely lovely and funny. I accidentally let slip it was my birthday in conversation and our waiter produced a beautiful tiny deconstructed doughnut with fresh cream,raspberries and a little birthday chocolate. So sweet of them. Our table (15) was in a lovely tucked away part of the restaurant. Food great, as always and service prompt.

First of all, the location is great. We booked a table for 2 and were seated by the floor-ceilling windows with a view of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Afternoon tea was very decent value, with tasty sandwiches, desserts and fresh scones

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Ivy. The set menu in particular was excellent value. We also had a table in the ideal location overlooking Tower Bridge and the Thames. I enjoyed my starter of ham croquet and main course of fish coujons. Our friend from Australia remarked that it was one of the best meals he has ever had! All the staff were welcoming and very efficient. Highly recommended.

Only one thing on the menu I fancied - the roast chicken with aubergine puree and Moroccan sauce - but that was very nice. We were next to the window with a great view of the Tower and Tower Bridge. Noise level high so couldn’t hear each other talk much - but we can always talk at home.

A classy modern restaurant with a fantastic view. The food, service and ambience were great and the menu seemed carefully compiled with seasonal dishes - although we've only visited twice in Winter. The prices are a little on the steeper side, especially if you are drinking alcoholic beverages, however, the cocktail and wine lists are extensive. One criticism would be the modest portion size and all sides offered only as a supplementary item. It was a lovely evening, and we shall return... again!

Service was average. We booked for 8 pm. Table was 20 mins late. Wouldn’t mind but no one advised us. Food no better than pub food. Poorly presented. Does not in any way justifies the high price paid. Very disappointed!
