Visit the Ivy restaurants regularly. Had a pretty spectacularly crap experience at Soho, so decided to try Marylebone, having had a great lunch service in the past.
The food was great, the service by the waiter was brilliant and the ambience was on point. However, this was all offset by the poor reception on arrival.
The maître d' wasn’t particularly welcoming, in fact I think it would have done him a favour if our temperature was too high!
Absolutely no frivolities upon arrival, simply, ‘can I check your temperature? Do you have the NHS app? Scan this!’
I completely understand your due diligence with regards to COVID, but I’d expect some sort of discretion at an Ivy restaurant. Not at all welcoming.

Marylebone is my favourite area in London. Despite covid measures I felt safe, the Lane was vibrant and busy. The Ivy Cafe followed guidelines, sanitiser on the tables as well as temperature check and NHS scanning app. Welcoming and good atmosphere, staff very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

We had a good arrival with the waiter at the entrance. On Sunday was a bit hot inside. Other visits we have done have been good so expectation was medium to high.
The lady who was in charge of our table had hardly much interest in us;she was proactive at the start but she got the order incorrectly and then she made the whole table wait a long time cos one person in our family had a starter. We had to chase the mains twice and when we chased it she jut turned around withouth saying much. Then got the steak totally incorrect and we had to send it back. The rest was nice but a shame this lady was not more engaging for the type of restaurant this is and considering they asked us that this was a birthday celebration. They did not really compensate us in the end so they did not even realise that our experience was a bit disappointing?

Warm friendly welcome and good covid protocols in place. Service was excellent. We all opted for shepherd's pie for main with sides of peas and sugar snaps really delicious, great choice if you are very hungry.

Overall a disappointing return to the Ivy Cafe. #warmly welcomed but after that it was average. We were seated next to a serving point, having asked not to be, and next to a very noisy table of four. The food was average as was the service. Would hesitate to recommend at present.

Thoroughly enjoyed a catch-up over lunch with friends. The venue was well-adapted to comply with the Covid-19 regulations, yet seemed little different from the last time we visited. Tables were obviously further apart, waiters wore masks, hand sanitiser provided on each table but there was a warmth and friendly ambiance, which we'd not expected. The food, as usual, was excellent and there was plenty of choice for the vegetarians in our group.

Really good food for everyone. One of the party is vegetarian and had plenty of choice. One person had Shepard's Pie and thought it was excellent. The sauces and seasoning with the halloumi on bulgar wheat were lovely. And a good sized portion of halloumi which is not always the case. We also indulged in two desserts. So very good food and extremely efficient, friendly and helpful staff. Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon there.

Better as the Union Cafe. No atmosphere. I arrived before my husband and as usual, they gave me the worst table as a woman on her own ! When he arrived, they managed to find us a better table ! The staff were OK but lacking in experience and personality. The food was also average. Won't be going again.

As ever, we had a lovely lunch at the Ivy, Marylebone. We have eaten at three other Ivy Cafes, and we always find this one the best. The staff are wonderful, attentive at all times without being intrusive, and the food is delicious. We are always made to feel welcome. We will be back again, and again.
