    Really good food and service. We do like this place. It is higher priced than we normally do but sometimes you need to treat yourself. Wish it was a little cheaper and would go more often but that’s a minor gripe. Food always good quality and lovely atmosphere

    We were shown to a very mediocre table in a room at the back of the restaurant . The room was dark and noisy and obviously not where one would want to be. A poor man next to us had to use his phone torch to see the menu and his companion sent her hamburger back as it was too rare. Wish I’d ordered it as I love it rare but the Ivy (amazingly it doesn’t make its own burgers) won’t serve them rare - except last night obviously! The service was poor until most tables left and then it improved a bit. A classic from our waitress when, having waited for ages for a first drinks and enquiring as to where they might be, was ‘do you want me to get them myself’. How rude! The bread which we usually love was stale (as confirmed by our waitress, but not removed from the bill until we queried it)! We were going to remove the not inconsiderable tip, but let it be. She was lucky!

    Not what I excepted. The overall ambiance of the restaurant was that of a canteen. The decoy was interesting but the tables were packed in and the waiting staff looked stiff and stressed. The background music did not fit the venue and although it was turned down fifteen minutes after we arrived its constant repeated base beat became annoying. The food was average but the prices were that of a much higher end venue.

    This was our first visit to The Ivy Winchester . Wow, it lived up to our expectations from the minute we walked in. Food absolutely fantastic, service discreet but prompt. Setting and decor tasteful and beautiful. As for the ladies toilets, so unusually decorated, fabulous. We will definitely be back!

    We love the ambience of the place but we felt so rushed that we couldn’t relax and enjoy ourselves. We only had two starters each as it was lunchtime and didn’t want a huge meal. Our bill was on the heavy side which was disappointing considering the lack of food we actually had eaten. A lunchtime menu would be a great addition, with prices reflecting this.

    Although the food and service were very good, I was disappointed, having chosen something from the "specials" menu to be told when placing our order that it was not available, this should have been pointed out when were given the menus.

    This is the 2nd time we have been for breakfast and we were so impressed both times. Food is outstanding as is the service. We went for my Mum’s birthday and she was bought out a complimentary chocolate pastry with fruit and a candle, which was unexpected and lovely! The brassiere itself is beautiful and we will definitely be going again.

    Staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was very good, perhaps a little too much however we were given a doggy bag too take the remainder home which was a nice touch. Love the decor, particularly the ladies! It’s good to see the toilets were kept clean too despite the restaurant being busy, in my opinion this is where a lot of other restaurants fail! Dirty lou, dirty staff in my view so well done The Ivy!!

    We frequent Ivy's in London also but just don't think you can beat the friendliness at Winchester. They went above and beyond last we were there when I took my daughter and a friend to celebrate the finish of their GCSEs. Surprise puddings of congratulations were a hit but even more so the gentlemen waiter who took such good care of us. Great humour and tons of patience.

    Expensive for what it was. Very noisy much nicer to go for breakfast. Felt very much like a chain (which it is) place rushing tables through rather than anything special.

    Great service staff and good but not outstanding food but spoilt by the noise level. I know this is a common theme for restaurants at the moment but this was beyond a joke. I was part of a family of four celebrating my wife's birthday but even on a small 3ft square table I was unable to hear what she said from across the table. I don't think it was because there was particularly noisy guests in that evening, it was just that the design of the restaurant meant the noise was reflected rather than absorbed.
