    Nice food and decent service, but for the name and the price, I would have expected exceptional food and service. Loud and vibrant atmosphere, which I'm sure suits some people, but I was expecting a more refined dining experience, rather than having to shout across the table to each other. Wouldn't recommend for a quiet, romantic mesl. Starters were gorgeous but, while the main courses were good, I would compare the quality to "Jamie's Italian" - Good, but not worth the money

    The room and ambiance was lovely and the service spot on, the menu is somewhat limited and we did not realise that gratuities were included, not that I would have disputed them as the service was good but it would be nice to know. Altogether a 4 out of 5

    Very welcoming. Good service. Ordered afternoon tea. Couldn’t eat it all. Offered a box to take cakes home. Wasn’t given chocolate deserts to take home as they weren’t in take out pots. If we’d known, we would have eaten them. Given a cake with a candle as celebrating a special birthday. Lovely gesture. Overall, would rebook.

    Ridiculously noisy. Could not hear ourselves speak. Had tepid bottled water foisted on us at £4.75. No option of table water offered. Constantly disturbed by staff with trolleys and buckets going past the table. Table for 2 extremely cramped and on busy walkway. Sourdough, zucchini fritti excellent. Goats cheese tart starter mediocre - pastry soggy bottom not much goats cheese. Minute steak amazing. Monkfish and prawn curry left most of this. Monkfish spongey and tasteless, mushy vegetables and detected just 2 prawns. Overrated. Also charged £8 service charge which I would have asked to be removed had I realised. Ivy Victoria 100 times better.

    The ivy was a nice place to go for dinner and we loved our visit My review would have been better if the service was a bit sharper. When we arrived our table wasn't ready and when we asked for the bill at the end it wasn't brought and I had to ask again about 20 mins later. When we needed another drink we had to be trying to get the waiters attention etc. To say how expensive it is and the fact that a 10% service charge is added to the bill (which for us was just under £23 , I felt the service could have been better. Food was very nice. Would be better if there was a better dessert choice for vegans.

    The service was poor. Staff need training up. Our server brought shepherds pie and forgot the chips. They arrived half way through the meal. I told them to remove the service charge and the chips. They should have said that to me! Hawksmoor service is impeccable. The Ivy is on its way to becoming a poseurs place to dine with poor service. Food and service need to match.

    The food was good, but the afternoon tea was too sweet (even the sandwiches were brioche rolls). The staff were friendly and if you like loud music, sitting in a thoroughfare and struggling to get the waiter’s attention this is the place for you. It didn’t live up to my expectations, but I could see potential!

    Received a champagne afternoon tea for 2 gift from my bosses. Absolutely beautiful setting, outside reminded me of a New Orleans vibe. Excellent service, didn’t feel rushed, furniture & decor are stunning and the toilets are amazing. Loved my afternoon, bit pricey (but since I didn’t pay…..) I recommend this as a lovely gift to someone special. Would just say the music didn’t need to be so loud..

    We were a group of friends celebrating a special birthday. We were served initially by a man then halfway through service it changed to a woman. The service was ok but we did wait a tad too long inbetween courses. I do think the waiting on needs sharpening as the crockery was collected across me and my friends. I don’t appreciate having someone stretch across me with no words to collect plates! My friends thought the food was exceptional as did I on this occasion. We would visit again but will try the Asian cuisine next time. We’re hoping we can appraise this a little more positively when we book again

    The Champagne Afternoon Tea was fabulous and the service was second to none. We didn't feel rushed either which was also good. The atmosphere at the Ivy Roof Garden was just right for us with some great background music from the DJ but we could still chat and hear each other. Loved every minute and will be back.

    Had a late evening dinner with hubby for our anniversary. Absolutely beautiful restaurant, low lighting which gave the restaurant that romantic feel. We were sat at the window and had a nice view of the city. The food is affordable and of good quality. The staff were really welcoming and attentative. Lovely night and would definitely go again.

    First experience at the ivy. Had the champagne afternoon tea which was very nice although would have been nicer to have more savoury food options. We had the champagne brought to us plus a drinks order was taken, plus water glasses so the table was top heavy with drinks and they found it difficult to then place the food down. We all felt (there was 4 of us) that we felt pushed to order additional drinks initially in order for them to make more money. We didn't get offered any of the tea/coffee included and had to ask for it and they said yeah you get it when you ask for it but nobody told us that as normally it's asked what you would like when you first sit down. Nice selection when ordered such as cappuccino etc but when they came they were all cold so had to reorder them and wait. The next round did come hot but felt like we had finished the cake part of the afternoon tea so the coffees felt a bit late. The music was very monotonous probably to set the tone of the ambience but felt a bit boring. Staff were welcoming but lacking in explaining what things were during the experience. Felt that for the money paid, we expected a bit more from the ivy and were left a bit disappointed. Definatly not the best afternoon tea ive experienced. Probably wouldn't go again.

    The decor and ambience is lovely, all the staff are very professional and offer a great service with regular checks to see that all is ol and if we need anything further. The Afternoon tea was delicious and very filling... they even bought out a little cake with a candle in it as I was celebrating my Birthday without requesting the staff to do that which was a very nice and thoughtful touch I would definitely recommend the Ivy Roof Garden and will be booking again

    Too many people crammed in! Why on earth have you got fires on at this time of year, people were complaining but you didn't turn them off, we asked to move seats and was obliged with this request, but the room was still stifling. We wanted to enjoy our time but we felt rushed you kept coming over filling the glasses back up even though we did say one of our sons didn't want a refill or a full glass as he was driving. It was like you took charge in a bad way trying to rush us off. The food quality was not as good as we have experienced in the past. a nice touch you brought our son a profiterole unfortunately by this time we had no drinks left and the table was totally cleared away, nothing special I don't think we will rush to come back. We were all very disappointed.

    On arrival we had a very lovely welcome and was taken to the bar waiting area. Once at the table service was outstanding and the food was cooked to perfection. The one issue we had was the background music level, it was way too loud. We asked twice for it to be turned down but to no avail. It made conversation really difficult.
