We had excellent service from a young waitress, who was discreetly attentive and made sure that my mum had a lovely 80th birthday experience. We had afternoon tea and the sandwiches and scones were delicious but the top layer of cakes were disappointing. The red velvet was dry, the shortbread was soggy and the macaroon had a slight floral taste and left our teeth blue. Although this gave us a laugh and overall it was a lovely experience, I didn’t think it was value for money. I would have happily paid a bit more for a more palatable selection of cakes. The lovely waitress did bring my mum a profiterole with a candle which was definitely the highlight.

Very poor front of house staff who didn’t seem to be able to relay to us that our table wasn’t ready. Took us to the bar which was also full up. So sat us outside. We had to wait half an hour for our table. The evening was saved by wonderful food and a fantastic waitress. Need to sort out front of house to deal with problems and not have a line of them all looking at the floor embarrassed.

Everything was spot on until the end… we were a party of 4, 2 vegans and 2 non vegans, and it was a vegan birthday dinner - the birthday cake which was brought as a surprise wasn’t vegan so tainted a bit. Other than that, outstanding all round.

Really disappointed with our experience yesterday. Cold food, items missing, drinks forgotten, slow service and a very hefty bill at the end means we won’t be rushing back any time soon. Great atmosphere and a beautiful place to spend a couple of hours was not backed up by our experience sadly. Raise your game please The Ivy.

We queried the sandwich selection but went with the chicken and truffle which we could not eat. We told the waiter but nothing came of it.
Very disappointed

We were sat at a corner table by window as requested. Courteous Yong man served us (didn't catch his name but had medium length wavy/curly hair, pale skinned). Eggs Benedict were delicious as always. Always feels like a real treat.

Very friendly and pleasant welcome at the front door was rather undermined by the long time it took to be served water and initial drink. My starter of Steak Tartare was excellent but the spicy duck salad of my fellow diner lacked focus. My rabbit and langoustine main was delicious and well balanced whilst the cod of my fellow diner was very heavy and, again, lacked focus. The side vegetables were excellent.

We did not have time for a dessert and asked for the bill. The staff had overheard that it was the birthday of my fellow diner and served a small birthday cake, a very kind gesture and delicious. A very pleasant way to end a fun dinner.

Unfortunately we were squeezed into a table for 2 with limited room around us, totally inappropriate. I had mentioned it was my partners special birthday celebration but there was no mention of it al all!

The wine was not served chilled, it was put into an ice bucket but due to the wine not being at the table and stored elsewhere we were left without wine for periods.

Disappointing experience this time.

On a plus note the food was excellent.

I had a really fantastic meal at The Ivy in Leeds. The food was amazing and I can highly recommend the Chocolate Bombe for dessert.

Sadly there were a group of 2 couples who were extremely drunk, loud and rude, which did spoil things a little. But overall the service we received was excellent and we had a great time.

Unfortunately, my mother and I were very disappointed at the Ivy Victoria Quarter. The waiter was charming, but was not attentive in the slightest. I asked two of his colleagues for drinks throughout the meal and nothing came. Once ordered, the drinks didn’t come until after the meal.
The food was average at best. I had steak tartare for my main course. The meat was brown and tasted old and was covered in parsley to disguise the unsavoury appearance. The salt and pepper squid was very poor in taste but the tempura prawns were delicious. The food on the whole was too salty which, as a salt lover, isn’t something I say often. I would not return to this restaurant

I came for afternoon tea with a voucher and isn’t realise it wasn’t valid until 3pm. The manager was very accommodating and allowed me to use the voucher against the regular menu. My 3 year old daughter was also looked after. Lovely service, food and venue. Will definitely be back.

If you like the business of the city the Ivy is just like this. Very cramped and loud. Not like a fine dining experience should be. Felt like they wanted you out before you sat down and you were sat almost on top of people.
I will not be in a rush to get back.

Excellent service, ambience and most importantly the food. We booked an inside table for a special birthday and asked for champagne on arrival. It arrived as we sat down without hesitation and a lovely birthday cake was gifted at the end. Will definitely go back.
