Majority of the food was good, especially the starters steak tartare and tempura prawns. However, the fish and chips for the main was poor and extremely greasy. Hardly ate any as it made me feel sick, but waiter didn’t ask whether everything was ok or question why I did not eat the main.

Visited for a 30th birthday celebration on a Thursday afternoon. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food and drinks were wonderful.
The perfect place to spend time with friends, with beautiful decor and great atmosphere. We will definitely return.

Worst Carpaccio ever. Grilled Haloumi and macedoine veg wouldn't have been out of place in a transport caff. Worst meal I have ever had in any Ivy and it was my Birthday!!

We went for our wedding anniversary and were greeted at the door with their best wishes. The restaurant was lovely, lovely lighting and was busy. The service was very good, prompt and all our food was delivered quickly to us. We were also given two small celebration deserts which was a lovely touch. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definately be visiting again.

We had the most amazing evening. I brought my partner here for his Birthday. I honestly can’t fault the service or the food. The most relaxed evening myself and my partner have had in a very long time.

We will be coming here again for our 10year anniversary in October and we can’t wait.

Generally the experience was good.

However I was disappointed with a service charge of 12.5%.
Ten percent would have been more acceptable and in fact when I visit again I ask for it to be reduced.

The booking seems unreliable. My preferred time was 7pm but at time of booking was informed no table was available. However at 7pm whist sitting there I noticed a number of tables were not occupied and certainly one or more of the tables was not even laid up.

PS it's an appalling and narcissistic practice to take photos of food in restaurants. Why do you encourage it?

Our first visit to The Ivy but it won’t be our last - a fantastic dining experience in sumptuous surroundings. We had the set lunch menu, which was excellent value, and every course was delicious and beautifully presented. I was especially pleased with the inclusion of very tasty vegetarian options. Service was outstanding, and the COVID-19 safety measures guaranteed we felt relaxed and could enjoy the amazing artwork and the buzz, which all added up to make a memorable visit.

Lovely to be greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" welcome, and a nice touch with the unexpected celebration dish at the end. Throughout our visit, safe conditions were maintained, and the staff provided a first class service. The food was outstanding, and we really enjoyed the experience - Many Thanks.

Very impressed to return to the Ivy in Winchester. A limited menu but that didn't put us off at all. A great selection with plenty or variety for all dietary requirements. We visited with friends that haven't been before and they really enjoyed it. We will be back very soon.

Fantastic as usual but just one thing let it down. The courgette fritti that we love was not as crispy as normal and a bit soggy. Other than that it was great.

Get together brunch and catch up with some girlfriends and to celebrate the impending arrival of our friends first baby.
The hosts were very accommodating and provided great service. We had a fantastic table in the window as it was a gorgeous day they were all opened out.
The food was, as always so good. We all ordered from the brunch menu and had the peach and elderflower iced tea which is so delicious we can’t not order it every time.
The finishing touch which was unexpected and such a lovely gesture was a small individual fresh cream and fruit cake with a congratulations chocolate for our new mummy to be.
Always look forward to our next visit.
