    We booked for the jazz evening on 28 Feb. Very disappointed jazz band over an hour late, played for a short time then went for a break! Surprised management did not insist they play longer as we only had the music of about 20 minutes or so.

    We went on Jazz evening. Food, service etc great as normal but the band turned up an hour late, played for 45 minutes and then had a break. Then we left so not much of a jazz evening for us.

    We were attentively served at a nice table and soon provided with our tasty starter and drinks. I didn't like paying the service charge. It's part of the meal, are we supposed to serve ourselves from the kitchen> I bumped up our 2 x £19.17 meals plus 3 drinks to over £80

    We had a lovely table - a booth kind of looking out over the room. Staff were very attentive and kind. The only downside the squid in salt and pepper was chewy. But all the rest of the food was amazing. The broad bean and pea side was delicious!

    Disappointing by comparison with Oxford Ivy where we have always had excellent food and service. Cold soup was returned to us after some considerable time still not hot. Waited ages for reorder of wine to arrive. The restaurant was not particularly busy but everything took ages to come.

    Love this restaurant and return often. But how odd (and irritating) to find that they don’t accept the OpenTable Dining Cheque which states quite clearly that it is ‘redeemable at any UK restaurant bookable on Open Table’. That is simply not true and OpenTable should reword their cheques.

    Great service and lovely food. My only complaint with this location is the level of noise. It’s really difficult the be able to hear others on your table speaking. I really hope they would look at more soft furnishings or sound panels as the design is lovely. But has significant hard surfaces which just reflect sound.

    Food was good but let down by the service which was hit and miss. Starters arriving before drinks, trying to order food when we’d asked twice for a drinks menu. Then all a little rushed like they wanted the table back asap.

    But disappointed this time with the Ivy. She this my favourite restaurant but the service wasn’t quite as good. They forgot to bring our sauce to go with our steak and sadly I had to ask twice for it 😥 The overall atmosphere is great but please please don’t let the once very high standards slip.

    The two staff that served us were excellent. Seat in the window so noise level low but the main restaurant area was buzzing. A bit noisier but not unpleasantly so. Visit for birthday. Staff aware and brought small treat to table with candle, whilst not making a big fuss which was appreciated.

    Listen, the place is lovely and it's nice to go every now and again (like once a year because of the cost) there's was only two of us and the meal cost £135.00. we had a main, a desert and 2 (none alcoholic) drinks and and a coffee. Tis too expensive for the portions. The service however is on point! No complaints there. It's more of a 'status' place or if you wanna update your Instagram with pics saying you're gone but I suspect most will be not mentioned the shockingly high prices. I will stick to once a year.
