Food was fantastic the ambience interior decor was amazing will definitely come again.
Had brunch two weeks ago and all was well with my booking.
Today was unacceptable. Checked in 10 minutes early, was asked to sit at the bar to wait to be seated. Realized several people had been seated ahead of us and yes we had been forgotten! Seated 15 minutes after our reservation time.
Order taken 30 minutes later food order arrived 30 minutes later.
Food extremely disappointing.
All in all an unfortunate experience.
Service was very slow not normally the case took at least 20 mins for our coffees to come and pastries were slightly burnt overall much poorer quality than normal
The service was not good. Ant atleast the food that I had was average. The only great thing was the interior.
Service was this time very bad. They tried to sell their daily specials without knowing some already sold out. Asked the table back but was 20 minutes delayed to bring the bill and collect the payment. In addition kept on pushing us out of the table (even the bill did not arrive) and afterwards at the bar we could see that there were many empty tables so they did not really need to rush us out!
It was out first time at Ivy Chelsea Garden, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary which I advised at the time of booking, I think it just would have been a nice thing if one of the staff had acknowledged this when we were at our table, I understand staff are busy but it wasn’t mentioned at all throughout our visit. Overall we loved the ambience and food at the Ivy and it was lovely to sit in the garden area, the only thing I would say is that our server came across a little bit blunt and would slam the plates etc down on the table, we didn’t feel we could chat to our server or have any banter with him which was a shame. Other than that we really enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Ivy Chelsea Garden.
I’ve been to the Ivy at least ten times now and this was by far my worst experience, the service from our particular waitress was awful. She had zero manners and seemed completely set on being as rude as possible from the very start.
Not sure if she was having an bad day or she just hates her job...
Slow service. Was given water to start with and was not explained to that it was going to be a £5 charge.
Staff on the front desk always warm, friendly and efficient. Our table was ready...in the conservatory garden area and creates a lovely candlelit atmosphere. However, service was a little slow and we almost missed out on an aperitif! The food we ordered was outstanding and delicious which made up for a mishap during service. Still looking forward to my next dining experience.
Absolutely magical setting, the food was beautiful, however as it was a special occasion we wanted to make an evening of it, but no more than 5 minutes after finishing our starter the main was being served so within 45 minutes we had finished our 2 courses! However it was a beautiful setting, the food was incredible and still was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Absolutely lovely service from all your staff. We sat in the conservatory and it was perfect for us - not quite as noisy as the main room, which we loved.
It was a pretty average meal for the price. The place as usual, is nice because of the garden and all the plans.
This restaurant was recommended by a former guest, and we where there ladies looking forward to starting our reunion dinner @The Ivy. We came from Norway & US.We where placed in a corner where all the waiters gathered the plates outside. Neither the food or service met up to expectations.
service was a little bit rushed however food was great and great settings
Very cool atmopshpere
It’s clean and convenient. Service is fast. Food not amazing considering price. Very sad about flat white coffee not coming with vegan oatly milk. Not enough Vegan choice. Lovely ambience as usual so will always return. Hopefully you’ll have room in garden next time.
Outstanding service and genuinely terrific setting and ambiance
Overall it was lovely. I was disappointed at the ripped fabric on my seat though!
It was lovely, garden is impeccable, food was great, service was excellent,I’m inviting friends next week
Très bon moment!
« Chocolate bomb » et un dessert assez exceptionnel
The food is great - really not as expensive as you’d think for such a lovely place. The only thing that rattled me a little bit is that after we’d asked for the bill it took almost 20 minutes for the waiter to bring it to us and he left all of our finished main dinner plates in-front of us. Surely you’d clear them when we asked for the bill? ANYWHO... It’s a lovely place and I’d go again.
Go for the drinks and the environment. This is a place to be seen.
Very poor service
Really bad experience this time
Have already been in contact with the Ivy regarding the meal!
I was impressed by this venue on my first visit - beautiful setting, great food. I booked online for my second visit, requesting a garden table for a special occasion. On arrival I was to discover that the garden appeared to only cater for smokers, not non-smokers. I was offered a table in the semi-enclosed gazebo, which was suffocating. The other garden tables in the open only served drinks, not food. We waited 20 mins to be finally offered a better table indoors to escape the smoke, despite half the tables being empty. We had to constantly chase up waiters in order to be served so it was a disappointing second experience. The redeeming factor was a creative Afternoon Tea and the ambiance of the Ivy brasserie.
Dinnertime limited to 2 hrs. Afterwards we were very straight asked to leave. Not so good.
A bit of a shaky start! Reception was a bit chaotic and there was confusion over who was taking who to the table. The receptionist asked us to chase after her colleague to tell her she was supposed to be showing us to our table and not the people who arrived after us. We did so, very politely, but were completely ignored so returned to reception. There seemed to be some tension between the reception girls and it made us feel a bit uncomfortable and unwelcome. However, once seated, things improved and our waiter was charming. Overall the food was good .. the arancini starter was fabulous. It is a great restaurant and we will return but there is definitely scope for improvement.
Beautiful settling and ambience with delicious food and attentive staff
The usually excellent service was very poor on this occasion. Food was good, and always a lovely pace to dine, but badly let down by the service, which was slow and inefficient.
Very nice place but the service is extremely poor and the quality of food is not exceptional.
The beginning was very nice... but dinner service dropped at the end. The drinks/desert were not served at all.
Our reservation has been forgotten! We were waiting for an hour!
Great staff, great food.. Have been to many of their restaurants and love the Ivy at Chelsea Garden
We really enjoyed the enperience, but the service was not great
On arrival we were greeted (not with a smile I may add) and told to get a drink from the bar and wait there, which we did for around 20 mins. I have to say it was a cold welcome and I really would have preferred to have been seated and drinks then served at our table.
Most people were taken from the bar to their tables by individual group, and with their drinks carried for them, not us though! We were told to "come with me" and carried our own drinks before then being told to "wait there" whilst 2 other ladies were seated at their outdoor table (and we awkwardly waited), before being seated afterwards.
Fortunately from that point in the service hugely improved, the waiter at our table was fantastic and the food we had that day was delicious. It was just a shame that first impressions let it down.
got a table in the garden- amazing experience! lovely food and service. definitely recommend
After booking a table for brunch at 11 we had to wait 45mins for a table. When questioning why the wait we were told today is just a slow day.
After being sat we ordered drinks which came after our food.
I wish I could say it was worth the wait. Eggs royal was a big disappointment. Very cold eggs which were not runny in the centre. Sauce was also cold and served with a stale muffin.
I was really looking forward to this booking as I have been in for drinks before and had a fantastic experience.
It just seemed there was a lack of staff and it all got a bit too much for them.
Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service and lovely food
Best breakfast of all time
