Reliably good food quality every time, solid classics done very well. The cocktails less so, even my aperol spritz (which is pretty basic) didn’t taste right.

The Ivy delivers reliably good food and service so we always enjoy whenever we visit. Service was a bit slow in this occasion but they were very busy and we were enjoying our conversation very much so we weren’t too worried about it. It was good to be back!

Love all the Ivy Cafes - brilliant service in every one I've been to where staff are the right level of friendly and make you feel just that little bit special - like a really good hotel, for example.
Cocktails and food were lovely and beautifully presented, especially the melting chocolate bombe dessert.
The only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars overall this time around was because of the Football Festival taking place right next to the restaurant. I had booked an outdoor table for lunch to enjoy the view of Tower Bridge, the river and London, but these were all completely blocked by the festival set-up. Not the Ivy's fault, and such a shame that tall pillars have been allowed to be erected to block out the views. Still, it didn't stop my enjoyment of lunch and great service but the views would have been a bonus.

Had a lovely lunch yesterday from the set menu .. very enjoyable. Sat outside on the terrace. The only blight was the Euro’s .. area cordoned off and couldn’t see tower bridge .. I blame the mayor of London .. surely he could have placed it all somewhere else! The Ivy never fails to deliver and we will be back soon!

view would have been amazing if sat near door, sitting round the back is very secluded, had high expectations for food and it did not fulfil the expectations.

Was shown to the wrong table much to the surprise of another diner. When I found my table we were served in a fairly efficient way. Cocktails were good, starter was excellent but main course disappointing.

Nothing positive to say about the experience. Made to feel like an employee eating at the restaurant and when i say that I mean that I was told what I should do and can’t do.. your manager sorry I didn’t take the name. He explained the policy of dining which I can find on the website when booking. I was shocked that I could not order a “second drink” unless I ordered food. It felt like I should do something which I did not want to do at that point and not to say I was not going to order food. If we should have been sat somewhere else then that should have been offered.

An awful way to start my wife’s birthday celebrations and something which will not be forgotten.

Thank you.

Chetan.

Unfortunately, service was slow and the food not of great quality, the fish was overcoocked and all of this for a very high price. I wouldn't recommend this place, I don't believe it' great value for money.

The blackened cod was salted to the extent that I could feel the brine tingling uncomfortably against my lips and it dehydrated me. I thought my palate was off but my friend tried a piece and found it overly salty as well. On the other hand of the spectrum, the chips were entirely unsalted. Very bizarre. It is as if the chef had not recovered from covid and is lacking in taste perception.
