Food was ok, although the waiters failed many times during the evening to take our order, mixed it up, brought wrong drinks and then we couldn't order our dessert as we waited 20min to get their attention

Food is surprisingly great. Tasty, interesting, beautiful presentation. Only 4 stars for a very limited vegan options (e.g. only one main).
Wine average. However, if you fancy a proper cocktail, this place won't disappoint.
Staff very friendly but could do with some training. Make unnecessarily basic mistakes which after some time gets irritating. Overall a great local and I happily go back

Overall acceptable but not impressed with waiter who from the outset kept telling us we only had a 90 minute slot. Fine to tell us once, but it was repeated several times and made us feel rushed

It is not cheap and the food can sometimes be just good rather than excellent, but the ambience is terrific.

The Ivy is my usual go to for a nice lunch or dinner. The food was the usual good standard. My only gripe was that with current restrictions I reserved an outside table and was dismayed when I got there to be offered one covered in rain - and it was still raining - I pointed this out and was told it was the only table available - not a problem, I said, I'd seen that other nearby restaurants were pretty empty so getting a table elsewhere would not be a problem. As if by magic an inside table was found - social distancing was easy as there was hardly anyone there, so why I had to ask I don't know!

Of course with Covid restrictions about to change to Tier 3, it was lovely to be able to get a nice venue for a birthday lunch. Have been to the Soho branch once which was good, and this venue is equally as good. Service was very good and plenty of time allowed to make choices from the menu. Starter was shared which was Tempura Prawns and salt chilli fried Squid. The horseradish sauce was really good. Main was a Burger and a blackened cod dish both of which were really good. All round a really enjoyable outing and one which will be repeated once things get back to some sort of normality.

Really lovely evening, food and cocktail selection were great. Lovely Christmas decor, Staff were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant itself was Covid secure: temperature check upon entry, hand sanitiser on the table and signs asking visitors to wear masks when moving inside the restaurant - I felt very safe. Will definitely come back. Thank you!

Felt safe at this restaurant. All staff were wearing masks properly, tables well spaced, sanitiser on the table and brilliant temperature check when you walked in! Well done for following the guidelines 😊

One thing to recommend is anti bac wipes in the toilets. I had my own thankfully 😊

Unfortunately the evening was ruined and we had to leave the Ivy restaurant without having dinner. The noise level inside was incredibly laud meaning a music was played too much loud and also overcrowded with people that tried to speak with each other under this noise. It was impossible to have a conversation without rising a voice. The service was slow and staff looked stressed because of the pressure of amount of orders. So after finishing my glass of champagne we asked for a bill and left. No one asked us the reason for leaving without having a food. No one! It looked like the stuff actually is released that we left. Very very disappointed. The Ivy Victoria is my favorite local restaurant but not anymore.

Lovely atmosphere, didn't see a toilet on the ground floor so was a bit of a trip up stairs each time. I would imagine they had a toilet for disabled people on the ground floor and maybe another for other customers. But we were directed to the upstairs toilet. Excellent Covid 19 procedure in place throughout the evening. My partner left her hat and gloves when we left. Within a very short time they called my mobile to inform me. Would definitely return. Kind regards Jeff

Really lovely food and staff. Felt a little rushed to finish our meal and were subsequently asked to sit at the bar for dessert (We were at the table for less than 2 hours) but was overall an excellent service!

Such a lovely place to eat. The decor was very comfortable, the table spacing was well placed so that conversations by others were not intrusive. The service was excellent with no interruptions to regularly ask ‘how is the meal?’ The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the COVID-19 precautions were exact. This meal was for our 40th wedding anniversary, and we had a lovely memorable experience there. Thank you.

Sadly due to Covid restrictions we gad to sit outside but were kept cosy by heaters, until the wind picked up then it got a bit chilly. Food was delicious and staff lovely. Will definately be back and hopefully be seated inside, corona virus allowing.

The food was fantastic, the service friendly, helpful and attentive and the resturant vibe was brilliant! It felt so Christmassy but you could also tell was beautiful all year round. A perfect date night location with lovely wine, and a chocolate bomb that works perfectly for a shared pudding! We both recommend the blackened cod! It was beautifully cooked.
