    Booked a table for my wife and I for before going to the cinema, so only had an hour to get in a starter and main. Let them know on arrival and they provided super-speedy service. Great food, lovely atmosphere and top class service, couldn't have asked for more. Not cheap, but good value, would highly recommend.

    Disappointing overall. We’d booked for my Mum’s 60th, so it was a special occasion, but the restaurant did nothing to make it special in anyway (for example, a glass of wine on the house or a token treat, which I’ve experienced at other restaurants). The service was incredibly slow- our drinks took a very long time to arrive. My husband requested his steak to be rare and it came overcooked so had to send it back. The noise level was very high too in the centre of the room. Whilst the food was expensive, the overall experience was disappointing and I wished we had taken my mum somewhere else for this important birthday celebration.

    I don’t like having 12.5% service being added to the bill and then being told by the staff that this doesn’t go to them and being asked for a further addition. That’s dishonest.

    Enjoyable afternoon tea the service was better than my previous visit but still not great The presentation was wonderful but the,scones were cold ,dry and there was not enough jam The ambiance and beautiful decor of the ivy does aid this experience but for me it's not the best available locally Included were two small milkshakes why have these but no include a tea refill ?

    Fabulous in all aspects you gave us the table we requested One tiny thing you asked when we booked was it a special occasion. It was our anniversary so unsure why you asked. You made a fuss of two ladies in front of us at the door you even asked whose birthday it was. No mention toys and it was our 25th too.

    So… greeted wonderfully at the at the entrance. Had a nice drink at the bar, waiting for a table. Then we got shown to a table which was on time…so far so good however was finding it difficult to get some service as it was so busy and totally understandable. Unfortunately ask the Sterlon steak medium rare however it came out cold and and rare borderline blue now considering the price and of steak I would if like to enjoy it medium rare so I ask the waitress and she gladly took it away and agreed with me it was very rare steak. Once I’ve finally got my it back from the kitchen via the waiter who had the plate on a tray ask if I can pick the plate from his tray…it’s was scorching hot almost felt was playing a trick on my for being annoying customer. He mentioned it was under the kitchen lights so clearly been there for a while. So I was hopeful to tuck into my £27 steak however it was now well over done and was total ruined and couldn’t possibly it. Really had high hopes as the Ivy was recommend to me by a friend so we came all the way from Bournemouth via train to visit you guys. The waiter did kindly take off steak from the bill however his generosity didn’t match my expectations I had from the place. Just my opinion.

    We had afternoon tea with some vouchers received as a gift. Easy to book on line, service prompt and professional. Food presentation excellent and big portions. Might suggest balance of savoury to sweet be adjusted as otherwise a very sugary experience!! Staff all very cheerful creating a fun and friendly ambiance. Fairly expensive so wouldn’t go for anything other than a special treat

    Whilst the food and service was good overall - the noise level and closeness of the tables we thought spoilt the occasion for us. We expect better from an establishment such as The Ivy, the venue needs to have fewer tables, and better spacing to warrant the top end prices charged! We would imagine a lot of business is derived from customers celebrating a special occasion, unfortunately given the noise level and lack of privacy afforded to some of the seating, an occasion could easily be dampened/spoilt. We have had better experiences in restaurants around Winchester for less expense!

    The only reason I marked the service slightly lower is that they got out drinks order wrong. We asked for one wine and one wine with soda, two glasses of wine arrived. They did put it right but we were charged for a whole glass of soda as they thought we had asked for two sodas
