Fantastic food. We ate from the set lunch menu which was lovely. I have been here a few times and I am not sure why but they never give you the set lunch menu you have to ask for it. Its good value at £16.95 for 2 courses. Can not fault the food its always very tasty and consistent. Highly recommend.

My visit to the Ivy was slightly disappointing and not as great as aid hoped for.
I asked for champagne on ice on our table but on arrival it wasn't there and I had to ask for it.
My menu selection was sold out and the chicken I had instead was very dry.
The drinks menu was very expensive.
Thr noise level was very loud and I had to shout across the table to my family.
A nice gesture at the end of the meal with a congratulatory dessert for my sons graduation

Staff were polite and service was good. However we felt food was poor. My starter of scallops came to the table cold and had to be returned. My Husbands duck curry was tasteless. My fish was rather greasy, side salad was limp and peas were cold. Very disappointing. For price we paid I'm sorry to say the food was substandard. I can only compare it to basic pub food. Was my Husband's Birthday meal.

Went to the Ivy after my sons graduation. The team were professional fretting my son with congratulations at the entrance. He was given a complimentary congratulations pudding as were all the students.

Efficient service and a good quality of afternoon tea. However tables are too closely packed in leading to a somewhat hectic ambiance which perhaps would be OK for a Friday evening party.

The food is lovely but I’ve been going for years and the vegan menu is always the same 2 mains- a salad or a Kerelan curry. Please add more items as I’m getting bored.

The Ivy oozes atmosphere and is the perfect venue, whether for a quiet time or a vibrant celebration. I don't think I will ever tire of it.
The afternoon tea package is rather expensive I think but my Mum & I were celebrating so price wasn't an issue on this occasion.

£3-95 on bill for water!! plus twelve and a half per cent service charge added on to the bill . Disappointing.!! Gratuities should be earned not taken for granted.

Booked a table to celebrate our daughter’s graduation. The restaurant had a lovely ambiance and the atmosphere was great. Service was a little patchy but understandable given how busy it was. The food was variable. My steak was very good but two of the other mains were over-sweet and padded out with vegetables rather than the main ingredient, duck.
Given the total bill of £140 for just one course, I consider it overpriced. Will not be returning.

Once again The Ivy was excellent. Today’s lunch was made even more enjoyable by the excellent service given by our waiter, probably the best I’ve experienced in a while. He was efficient, pleasant and attentive but not pushy. Thank you.

Food and atmosphere as expected, but we both resent being billed for the service at 12.5% for a table of two when the table service was indifferent and relatively slow. It seems churlish and mean spirited not to pay the service charge, so we did, but we would prefer it to be left to our discretion.

I booked a table to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. I have been to many of the Ivy restaurants in and around London so I had high expectations. The food was as delicious as I had hoped! Could not fault the food and my favourite wine was on the list list too so I could not have asked for more. Friendly staff from the reception through to our waiter. Finally- my daughter was presented with an unexpected surprise-graduation profiterole! A lovely touch! Thank you

Fabulous food for our birthday lunch. It is expensive BUT you know that before you go so be prepared to pay! But it was totally worth it because the food is exquisite, and perfectly presented.
The staff were professional, helpful and cheerful which added to the experience. We would definitely go again but it would be for a special occasion as we couldn’t afford the prices on a regular basis, and we both work!! Please bring The Ivy to Bournemouth 🙏🏻 But maybe not as I’ll end up in debt 😂
