Return visit to Ivy Chelsea Garden! A group of four, for a lunch catch up. Busy at 12pm, but in a nice way, wasn't too noisy and had a good atmosphere. Food was as great as my last visit, which makes them feel a dependable choice / venue! Lots of options to choose from, so great place to take anyone for a special lunch or nice afternoon tea stop.

Booked the Ivy Chelsea Garden for a special birthday lunch. Phoned up months beforehand to ask to increase from 4-7. Was told it wasn’t possible. Luckily for me my booking had gone through twice and so I had 2 reservations each for 4 people. Restaurant were arrogant and dismissive when I asked if they could confirm the tables would be together stating it’s against their policy.
I was in two minds whether to go but we did and they were pretty good at resolving the situation on the day albeit squeezing 7 on a table for 4. Luckily the kids ate first to give us some elbow room. Starters great, mains disappointing especially the fish and chips which had soggy batter. Drinks good and table service good. Had to remind them 4 times it was a special birthday and to bring a small birthday dessert. Would have been nice if they’d been more proactive.
Not cheap but atmosphere is good and good location. I just wish they wouldn’t be so arrogant and be more welcoming....then again I guess it depends on who you are.

I used to love it but the recent visit was awful! Horrible breakfast eggs Benedict. Cold breakfast muffin, not toasted, not nice ham, the dressing was bad. Service was so slow and so rude and not helpful. That it completely turned me off from going again. Decor as always beautiful

I came with my daughter for brunch on Sunday, we both were disappointed with our food as it was not very hot when it arrived but seemed to go cold very very quickly, I not sure how it is cooked & how long it is waiting to be brought to the table, this is also not helped by lack of space between tables & chairs & waiters busy taking orders

We enjoyed a lovely evening, we had a joyous waiter who made our night so memorable.

He was so funny we tipped him over the amount on the service charge in cash, as we felt he deserved it.

The food, sadly was not as good as the time we ate at the Covent Garden Ivy, the onion soup was not on this menu, although we were happy with the Pumpkin Soup, however the Roasted butternut squash with grains was so dry the two guests who ordered it only ate a few mouthfulls which was a shame as we had enjoyed this dish so much at the Covent Garden restaurant.

Pleasant surroundings reasonable
food. good service, in winter do not sit along the series of tables in front of the doors to the covered garden area. The second door to the garden opens continuously and a freezing draft becomes quite unpleasant.

I love cheesy ivy garden but my last two visit in the morning where not good as I found for second time piece of hair in my eggs which is more than disgusting and unacceptable as this place is in the central place and it’s visited all day long . The service where amazing but I didn’t finished my food after that :( shame

We had a lovely table in the Garden Room. Yummy food (especially the puddings!) and good service, although the Pinot Noir at £16 a glass felt a bit cheeky.

Special occasion with friends for Christmas. Nice cocktails at the bar first. Good choice of menu quite varied. Was quite loud but good atmosphere. Service was ok but nothing special I think it was maybe change over of staff. Better service here previously.
Food was good as always
