THE PROBLEM WAS JUST PRICE AT £70+ PLUS PER HEAD
UNSURE ABOUT THE COST OF THE 2 X BOTTLES OF WINE CONSUMED
PERFECTLY NICE, BEEN THERE BEFORE BUT JUST TOO EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT IS
HOWEVER THE SERVICE WAS TOP RATE

I come to the Ivy Cafe Marylebone quite often with clients and colleagues and after bringing my parents here I am in no rush to come back.
We had brunch here for Father’s Day, we had to ask for cutlery and plates, we had to ask for butter when our bread came.
They left empty plates, glasses on the table while we ate so we had to push it all to the side and ask for it to be removed.
When my eggs arrived they were too hard so when they were brought back, they were cold so I left not actually eating. The manager didn’t come over to apologise and offer a feature of good Will. There was a waiter who looked half asleep or at least had 1 hell of a night the night before.
I’ve never been so disappointed as I am a regular there but unfortunately, the service for brunch was very disappointing and I will not be in a hurry to go back.
Concerning as they had a lot of staff.

I love the ivy restaurant but last two occasions I have been to the ivy cafe I have ordered the shepherds pie only for it to come out lukewarm !
First occasion both mine and my husband’s wasn’t hot enough and it was replaced
This time same problem
My friend ( birthday treat !) and I waited more than half an hour between starter and main and it came out lukewarm again. As we wanted to eat together and her main had arrived I accepted it
It was taken off my bill ,but I’d rather have enjoyed the pie hot
Come on ivy cafe get it together, it’s quite a basic requirement to have your food hot when it comes to the table
The restaurant was extremely noisy so I won’t be rushing back

Waiter was rude and inattentive.
Very loud you can’t hear yourselves talk over the noise.
Food was average and over priced.
Long wait for drinks (water).

We arrived early and were cheerfully accommodated at the amended the. We were a little unhappy with the original table and again this was sorted out with no fuss.

The service was excellent and we were made to feel valued. Our waitress was delightful and seemed to be always available yet not intrusive. Food good and reasonably priced

Nestled in a quaint neighborhood, just outside the hustle and bustle of the tourist trap of Oxford street, this place is a great place to dine after a day of shopping. The food and service is impeccable, with delicious cocktails. All for a great value considering the location. I do suggest setting a reservation, as it can get busy...it’s popular for a reason!

I had visited previously for afternoon tea and enjoyed the venue, so returned with my family for dinner. We were overcharged, were not offered water, and even had to request that our remaining wine be served; hence our poor service rating. The food was average at best. A disappointing experience overall and the low point of our weekend dining in London.
