Excellent food and a charming young Scottish waitress. Sorry I didn’t get her name. Our second visit and one of our favourites.

A quality restaurant.

Disappointing as our brunch was drowned in hollandaise sauce. Nice enough place but that ruined it for us as we couldn’t taste the rest of our breakfast.

Not with the Managers attitude he was not customer friendly and argued when I challenged him that the wine was wrong and he blamed it on the ice !

Love the Ivy been to several of the branches. Food was not up to the usual high standards on this occasion as the chips were overcooked and the broccoli was cold

First time visiting the Ivy after a recommendation and I have to say the breakfast was excellent, the service was fantastic and the cost was very reasonable. I can definitely say I will be back again and will definitely be passing on my recommendation to others.

Thank you for a fantastic morning,

David

We received the nicest, cheeriest welcome. All six of us arrived with suitcases as we were heading our separate ways after breakfast and the maitre d did not bat an eye even though they took up a lot of space. What a nice way to start our visit to the Ivy!! We had a fantastic weekend in London and our final meal at the Ivy was a nice way to end before we all went our separate ways. Thank you.

We have been to the Ivy in Marylebone a number of times and always enjoyed it. On this occasion we had decided to try the one in Soho, but walked out straightaway when we heard the terrible loud drum and bass music and decided to book at Marylebone at the last minute. This place is always reliable - nice cocktails and simple food well prepared. There is music but it is very soft jazz which we love.

Celebrated a colleague's Birthday at the Ivy Cafe. The decor is quite beautiful, and the atmosphere very vibrant. The food was delicious, although my main dish was a little salty for my taste. Highly recommend this restaurant. A memorable experience in a very good way!

Our travel plans were severely disrupted by the weather and I had to contact the Ivy Cafe twice to rearrange the booking. The staff were very understanding and accommodating and when we arrived welcomed us warmly. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere was warm and friendly, with a real buzz for a Monday evening. Thankyou for a wonderful experience.

Got a table right at the door on a very wet day and every time the door opened a blast of cold air hit. Ask for bread and olives to start and they came with the main meals, also one of our guest ordered fries and we had to remind our waiter.

Delicious food and attentive (but not overwhelming) service. The restaurant is immaculately presented and, although, it was full, it was still possible to have a conversation without strain.

I've always found The Ivy charming. I was very pleasantly surprised to find the Ivy Cafe Marylebone was every bit as good the main restaurant. The quality of the service staff was superb. I found the food to be same quality as at The Ivy (though with a lower price tag, which was a pleasant surprise). From the moment we arrived we were treated to the experience you expect from a quality restaurant, in a slightly less formal setting, but with all the service and the same beautiful decor. Thoroughly impressed!

We were greeted enthusiastically and we didn't have to wait long for our drinks order to be taken The House white wine is a very nice Sicilian and it was very good value.
My friend and I both ordered the special shrimp and avocado burgers, they were very nice, but more avocado would have been good.
The star of the lunch was the chocolate bomb - absolutely fantastic!
We weren't rushed and the waiting staff were all very kind.
Altogether a very good visit.

We took a friend out to lunch at the Ivy Cafe in Marylebone and were delighted with the choice. Very good food, generous portions, excellent and attentive service in a most attractive venue. And not too expensive!

A fun, buzzy, informal restaurant that lives up to the Ivy brand for good fair and lovely service. It feels like a local Marylebone place with allot of repeat customers. I will certainly return. The food was lovely and imagnative. Very large menu of options.

I went for a client lunch and it was a perfect venue for the occasion. I have been before and I've always had a good experience there. The duck curry was so lovely and good portion size. The chocolate bombe was also delightful. Highly recommend as it has a good variety of cuisines and portion sizes are really suitable.

The service was ok but the.food was not great. Carpaccio swimming in lemon juice, cold vegetables and a server who told us it was meant to be like that. Chips needed more seasoning. The head waiter was lovely though.
