These guys know to have classic class - top service understated, very professional amazing food and great atmosphere.

Have the whole Covid process of to a “T” —- such that they have everything in case you forget.

Definitely one of the most amazing relaxing places I think across the ivy chain and defiantly in Marylebone.

I prefer the Ivy Cafe model to the over-dressed main Ivy proposition and the Cafe in Marylebone Lane is first class.

We decided that we deserved a treat, although someone said to my husband recently you don't need an excuse to go to the Ivy. We were made to feel welcome and were allocated a table with plenty of distance, which made us feel very comfortable. Our orders were taken promptly with queries about ingredients answered satisfactorily. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. The food as delicious. The General Manager came and spoke to us, which made us feel very special. We enjoyed our lunch, possibly a little too much. We will certainly be going back again soon.

The Ivy is a high-class brasserie. The operation is slick, and they implement all the Covid-safety measures efficiently and unobtrusively, as part of excellent service. The ambience is good, the menu is imaginative and the food beautifully presented. Where they fell down for me this time (and I haven't encountered this in other branches) was that both my starter and main dish were drowned in strong dressings which dominated what should have been delicate flavours. The point of tuna carpaccio is the delicate flavour and consistency of the fish, so why would you serve it swimming in vinegary wasabi? And the crispy duck salad was slathered in strong hoisin sauce, dominating the flavours and taking the edge off the crispiness. Chocolate bombe was very splendid.

Fabulous afternoon. Food was delicious - especially the courgette fries which were to die for and that’s not a phrase one usually associates with a courgette! However, it was the service which really stood out, in the middle of Covid they managed to find the balance between maintaining social distancing and making you feel comfortable and welcome. Would return in a heartbeat.

The staff at the Ivy Cafe Marylebone are superb - and they have everything under control in terms of COVID. From the moment you arrive you are treated as an old friend and looked after. The tables are well-spaced and the ambience is just perfect for lunch. Cocktails are well crafted - I had blood orange margarita which hit the spot perfectly. The jackfruit starter is amazing and I would very much recommend it. We were a table of four and had a lovely relaxed sunday lunch. Thank you to the team for making it such a lovely event. and one of us had a birthday and so there was a little cake with a candle brought to the table - lovely touch!

The restaurant was very busy and service wasn’t up to usual standard. There were a lot of flies around our table including fruit flies which I have never noticed in the restaurant before. All three of us noticed the flies and it was distracting.

Temperature check and hand sanitiser upon entering was good although the narrow entrance does not allow social distancing. Our table was about 0.5m away from the next table and most waiting staff did not wear a mask. Service was friendly and prompt and given the late lunch timing, we were under no pressure to leave even after 3 hours. Menu was pretty standard across the chain. Duck starter was a delicious combination of flavours and textures although the duck was a bit too crispy. Eggs Royale was well executed although I found the muffins a bit thick as I was so full from the starter.

Overall a lovely place and will continue to visit the branches across the chain.

Such a pretty setting in a lovely location. Beautiful decor, super friendly and efficient staff.
The food was good - the creme brulée for dessert was one of the nicest I've had (including in France) and they took my friend's food allergy very seriously without making it an issue.
Will definitely go back.

There are about 6-8 tables outdoor, which most people prefer to sit nowadays.
Great food and service as expected from the IVY chain.
