Three of us went to the Chelsea Garden for a brunch. Its a bit of a walk up the Kings road from Sloane Square, but well worth it. Atmosphere was pretty good, although quite busy. The staff coped with this very well, and the service, both and the door and at the table was great.

We ordered the full English breakfast (8/10), The Eggs Benedict (6/10), and the Pancakes (9/10). Tea and coffee was great. The waiter was very attentive, with being over bearing and didn't rush us at all.

Planning our next visit already!

First time at this Ivy location having been to four others around the UK which I have really enjoyed. It was a Wednesday night and they were busy but incredibly strict on the 2 hour time limit and kept reminding us that they had a big party coming and we would have to move even while we were being asked about dessert and had only drunk half of our wine. We asked if we could sit at the bar and were told there was no room. We were then moved to the back area of the restaurant which is a covered patio area. We were reasonably happy with that and just wanted to enjoy the rest of our wine, but several times we were told 'you do realise that we cannot serve you more drinks in this area and you need to move by 10pm'. Frankly we felt like naughty school children! It's a shame because our actual waiter was lovely. Food was okay but not stunning. This is not a cheap restaurant by any stretch and frankly I felt we deserved better.

The doors to the outside garden were wide open on this very cold day so what should have been a cosy warm comfortable birthday breakfast was freezing. The food was hot when served and delicious but hard to enjoy it when it got cold within seconds. Cappuccino was not good compared to other visits and still only two dairy alternatives (no oat milk option). Our waiter couldn’t speak English fluently and our waiter switched to several different people over our breakfast.

We had a delightful meal. Starters were excellent. Main courses were great and desserts were delicious. Plenty of excellent food and wine. We were put in the enclosed garden area. My only criticism would be that we were kicked out at 10 o’clock. I am assuming this is to stop too much noise disturbing the neighbors! However I received no notification of this when I booked the table nor when we were sat down. We were offered no alternative choice! Other than that a truly wonderful evening.

I loved this restaurant, the food is delicious, and the decoration is so cozy and the staff are so nice and helpful. I want to give a shout out to Stephanie who served us during our last dinner, I have never met such enthusiastic and welcoming waiter, although we were her last clients. We realized when the food was served that we made a mistake in our order as we were not familiar with the steaks options and they let us re-order again. I am definitely coming back to this place, I heard their brunch was good. I hope they start doing DJ nights on Saturday it would be fun 😊

I came away with a really bad tummy ache, not sure what it was. The courgette frites were extremely greasy so may have been those!

We had a lovely evening, great food and excellent service. In particular, one of our friends was running late and our waitress really accommodated this in terms of timing our main meals which then arrived in perfect timing. Also despite the restaurant being busy, we didn’t feel rushed at all which I have sometimes experienced at other Ivy Brasseries.
One slight comment is that the seating at the bar isn’t very conducive to having a conversation with friends as the seats want to face forward, but we probably stayed longer than most.
We’d definitely come back again.

We waited for 30 mins for a table. I was with my pregnant friend and sat at the end of the bar. Had to remind them about us after about 20 mins. They then sat us in the first part in the very stuffy cafe area. There were lots of prams and mothers parked there. I asked to be moved to the restaurant which we waited another 10 mins for.

When we finally were seated we were placed on the terras which was just what I thought I had booked. Here it was quieter and just delightful. The menu is the same and food is good but not mind blowing. Had a beautiful lunch with my friend in the end but I really would have liked to have better service. And perhaps an apology for the delay to our reservation. I won’t be running back as the Kensington branch has amazing service and just a bit less hectic.

Food was good and reasonable value however the service wasn’t great from the get go. Table wasn’t ready on time but fortunately didn’t take too long, we ordered cocktails which unfortunately didn’t come for over 45 mins (by which time we had finished our main meal).
We then ordered one dessert to share.... again this didn’t arrive after 30-45 mins. We asked where it was and found out it had in fact been given to another table!
Service for us was very poor, the one silver lining was that the staff did understand our disappointment and agreed we did not have to pay for the dessert, but of course the service charge was still on the bill!

Thw waiter kept sending the wrong orders which was quite annoying...but the manager was nice so...a mediocre experience, we expected more than that. 服务员上错了我和我朋友的两道mains并且态度冷淡。领班态度很好一直道歉并且没有算我们甜品的费用,可是当晚总体的感觉并不是很好。

I always have a good time at an Ivy - the staff are lovely and the food dependable, the interior warm, welcoming and glamorous, and it always feels like a bit of a treat. That's why one comes back time after time...

My mother doesn't come to London to visit me often and as part of a treat for her Christmas present I decided to bring her here to the Ivy Chelsea Garden. She was thrilled with the whole experience. The waiters were so attentive and the food was divine. Of course she never saw the bill but it was very reasonable for the service and delicious dinner we received. She was also impressed by the architecture of the building and beautiful design inside. Thanks for a memorable day.

The venue itself is lovely and the food was fine (not amazing) but the staff were unfriendly and disorganised. When I was brought a pot of tea I did not order the waiter told me several times that this was indeed what I'd asked for. They don't seem to be enjoying their jobs much. If I'm going to spend this much money on breakfast, next time I will go to a tighter ship with better morale.

Had a lovely lunch on Monday - very attentive helpful waiter at table. Always love your restaurant.
Great atmosphere, nicely decorated, feels a good/fun place to be. They took 4 people to their table before placing us/annoying. And managed to eat both our starter & the pudding, before wine by glass arrived! But we will be back

I love The Ivy in Chelsea, but I cannot recommend the afternoon tea.

The food was disappointing in presentation and taste. I expected more for the cost and experience.

The garnishes were squashed into the sandwich rolls and the taste of all the items was very bland except the over-sweet dessert.

The clotted-cream had the consistency of hard butter and the serving of jam very small to share between 4 scones.

There were also 2 different groups of people hovering around the table loudly discussing private dining while we were seated. It was distracting and unnecessary.

The service was perfunctory and not to the same standard I had when I dropped in for lunch two days ago.

The experience was a complete let-down for a special occasion and better value can be had by having a lunch or dinner at the venue.
