Had a lovely afternoon at the Ivy but wanted their famous shepherds pie and they had run out. What we had was lovely though.

Fantastic experience as well as a good and drink stop for our pre holiday shopping trip. I had shepherds pie and hubbie the Beefburger and both were spectacular. Drinks were served as chilled as they should be, I had a white wine and in some many establishments I have to ask for ice (I know, sacrilege) but not here and Steve had a lager served in a frosted glass.
There was a DJ playing laid back Cafe Mambo type music and the staff were attentive and cheerful but not overly present. All in all just perfect, what a treat.

The service was good, our food came out very fast but was a bit dry, however very flavorful. We ordered our drinks when we sat down and they came after our food which was slightly annoying. Overall, I think the decor and ambiance was great but probably a bit over priced for the quality of food and service.

The welcome team at the door were very pleasant, we arrived early so ordered a drink at the bar before the meal. The bar staff were very good and there is a good selection of drinks. The food was very good however the table service was absolutely terrible. We ordered wine to drink with our meal, this arrived just before we finished our starters (we purposely tried to eat these as slow as we could). We then awkwardly sat there and stopped eating while the young girl struggled to open the bottle of wine for several minutes. The girl then eventually went to get to some help opening the bottle. When the girl came back she poured a glass of wine and then took it away to get an ice bucket. Starters were cleared by two members of staff and then the main course arrived very quickly. We then had to ask where our wine had gone, it had been put in an ice bucket several meteres away near another table, even though was plenty of space next to our table. We then to repeatedly ask for our glasses to be topped up as we weren't able to reach the bottle ourselves and none of the staff thought to ask. We ordered salt and pepper squid, scallops, rib eye steak on the bone, sirloin steak, creme brulee and the chocolate bombe, with the wine this brought the bill to £170 (before the 12.5% service charge that we asked to be removed). For that kind of money there are a substantial number of other restaurants that offer equally good food and much better service.

The restaurant was busy and it felt short staffed so service not on parr with previous visits. The music was loud and we were seated under the speakers so conversation was difficult. The ladies toilets were very untidy, no paper hand towels and generally messy (other diners to blame)
Our meal was really good but the music/noise levels spoiled things

This was my first visit to The Ivy Victoria Quarter and will not be returning. Staff very polite and friendly and great atmosphere but sadly food very disappointing. Burger overcooked and brioche bun dry, fishcake bland. Overall very underwhelming.

Good food but our meal was spoilt by slow service. The waitress was apologetic but both drinks and food were delayed meaning we had food but no drinks or drinks and no food.

Overall enjoyed our late afternoon dining experience. The food was of a high standard and very enjoyable. However given the high end prices for both food and wine it had the noise level and ambience of a fast food restaurant. At first glance decor stunning however needs a lot of tlc. The staff were very attentive.

A bottle of wine was purchased and we were surprised it was put far away near another table “due to health and safety” but we didn’t feel the full pleasure of having purchased a £32 bottle of wine
Service was a little slow - but a lovely place and tasty food.
We ordered a second beer from another waiter, as ours wasn’t around, and it never came?
A little disappointed as we would have had coffee but were never offered them.
We asked for the bill and left.

Another amazing Ivy experience. Light up Leeds lit up at The Ivy. Great entertainment & music to go along with the excellent service, ambience & of course not forgetting the incredible good food. What an evening, another memorable time with our family in great surroundings made it unforgettable. Thank you, as always

We booked the Ivy in Leeds for a date night tea. We have been to the Ivy in London quite a few times and also York. We thoroughly enjoyed our Leeds experience.
My partner order the cheese souffle, house burger whilst I opted for the squid starter (highly recommended!) and the duck curry. We shared a choc bombe and truffles.

Honestly, everything was amazing! and we'll be back as soon as possible.

We had a great time. The food and service were excellent.
One negative was that we included a generous tip in our payment and it wasn't till after we had paid that we realised there was already a service charge included. This is definitely something we should have been made aware of. I was not happy that after paying for an expensive meal we had paid a huge tip

Last minute choice for an afternoon coffee. Lovely service and general environment although a little noisy. We chose the scone cream tea which was excellent value. Our only suggested improvement would be a couple of alternatives to have with tea/coffee.
