Would like more savory options for the afternoon tea, quite heavy on the sweet stuff. Also we don’t eat rasisins so would have liked some plain scones too.
The chairs were really comfortable and very pretty.
We’re looking forward to booking for dinner.
Overall a wonderful experience with my sister and grandma 😀

Fiancés Birthday was lovely at the ivy. The food was delicious and service was great. It was a busy Sunday and we weren’t rushed at all. We were able to enjoy the experience. Definitely will be back.

The place absolutely exceeded my expectations from start to finish. I booked a surprise brunch for my boyfriend for our first anniversary and it was the best thing I have ever booked. The environment was amazing the service was amazing and ofcourse the food. Everything was just perfect. I will definitely recommend this place and will be sure to come back again soon. Thank you

I went to The Ivy on a Sunday afternoon and it was extremely busy. First we were parked at the bar and felt a little bit forgotten, then the girl came to bring us to our table and actually forgot my name. Once we were seated we had to wait a very long for the waiter to take our order. He looked at me 3 times while acknowledging us waiting. He seemed confused and was talking to another man while taking my order, which seemed a bit rude. The food came quickly and was good. It was fairly priced and the restaurant itself was really nice. Overall the customer service was poor but the food alright.

The food was amazing and the decor is just fab. Only point is it is HIGHLY instagrammable so when you’re trying to eat your meal it can be slightly offputting when all the table around you are taking photos of the food instead of eating it ;)

I enjoyed it, except we had to summon the waiters numerous times as service was quite slow....this could be due to it being extremely busy on a Saturday brunch/ lunch. Beautiful decor in the restaurant. I will definitely visit again and recommend it to friends.

The ambience was incredibly noisy and often found myself shouting to make myself heard. Although I did go at 10pm on a Friday so I could understand the noise level. A little disappointed with the dress code and for the evening at least. The ivy is an occassion to dress for but many people looked incredibly underdressed and I may add not well cleaned. The dress code should be noted as smart because it makes many other people feel over dressed for a restaurant that upholds a high standard reputation. The food was subtle with flavours. I had the black cod and felt it did not compare to the black cod at Roka that packed a stronger punch and better complimented sides. I was super excited to go here but have left not needing to rave about it as it does not have an exclusive feel to it like other restaurants.

The restaurant was very loud. The setting is beautiful. Appetizer of apple salad with Stilton quite good. Main courses of salmon and a lobster pasta were good. The best was desert: passion fruit baked Alaska: a 10!!! Chocolate bomb with a Carmel sauce: a 10!!!

They kicked us away from our table after 2h 20 min but didn’t even have any other guests taking that table. There were many available tables at that time. Incredible how bad of them....

Impeccable service, I had booked the table for my friend for his birthday and I have to say it was well worth it. The food was amazing, we both really enjoyed it, customer service ok point from the minute you walk in the door when they take your coats, to our waiter who served us all night. We also didn’t wait long at all for our food and even the appetisers of bread and cocktails before our food came was of a very high standard

The staff was nice but was shadowed by a rather poor delivery of the service.
1. The note I wrote on OpenTable was ignored by the staff (I asked to be seated in at a nice table, with 2 flutes of champagne when we arrived - none of this was done!)
2. My girlfriend asked for an alternative to creamy potatoes in her dish, because she cannot have dairy. And her plate arrived with no alternative, just less food in the plate. We had to discuss with the manager to get a side of vegetables for her.

I expected better from the Ivy in Chelsea ... let's hope they will make improvements in the future, and we might come back.

We sat outside - just about warm enough although we kept our coats on. I like all the greenery and the setting is lovely. Chairs were not that comfortable, but bearable. The menu was the same as several weeks ago - would be nice if it had changed. I had the monkfish and prawn curry - the sauce was very nice but the monkfish was very overcooked and rubbery - I left it - and I think I found 2 prawns in total. I would say the food is adequate but nothing special. Very few vegetarian options other than the usual. A useful place for a lunch but nothing special.

Booked a table for a 50th birthday meal . I had asked for a specific table position when I booked and this was granted , had a huge circular table in the conservatory, perfect .
Food was tasty and portion size perfect. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience and our second visit.
Only one negative ,it is very dark and we needed to use our phones to read the menu , but it gave us a giggle anyway .
