Ivy Kensington Brasserie
Sample our extensive range of quality food and delicious cocktails at your leisure from breakfast until late, whether you are a local resident, work close by or are visiting some of London’s best loved landmarks such as The Royal Albert Hall.
Our garden terrace is situated at the back of our restaurant and provides the perfect respite away from the hustle and bustle of the high street. Adorned with flowers and foliage, it is the perfect spot to soak up the sun during the summer months. Due to the nature of British summer our terrace cannot be booked ahead, so please just pop in.
Open seven days a week and comprised of a main restaurant, bar and a semi-private table for ten for an extra special experience, The Ivy Kensington Brasserie provides the perfect setting for any occasion.

As always the food was perfect, the environment delightful and a lovely birthday experience:-)
Good prompt service, sticking to Covid guidelines, would recommend and would go back.
nice setting, good service and good food. It was an enjoyable experience.
Really lovely food and attentive service (catering for nut and sesame allergies). The restaurant arranged for a cosy corner table and surprise dessert treat for our anniversary. Bubbly but not too busy atmosphere throughout the meal. Overall it has a refined but relaxed feel, and would recommend for a couple going out.
Absolutely fantastic brunch, good service and made my wife's birthday very enjoyable.
Service was slow
Lively but elegant, nice atmosphere With the open front we felt comfortable regarding Covid
Good food as always
Excellent service, top notch food. The Ivy have done a great job making the restaurant covid compliant without losing any of the atmosphere. Go there and support the team who make it happen, you’ll have a great time !
Service good a bit rushes at first overall good
This is our favorite restaurant in Kensington. Get a table in the Garden if possible because it transports you to a small cafe/restaurant in a European city. If you want the bussle of a busy restaurant in Paris then opt for the main restaurant. Food consistently wonderful. Tried the Blacken Cod for the first time and it was delicious.
The Ivy is consistently good and a joy to go to, irrespective of which restaurant.
Very impressed with the temperature technology being used as you enter, liked the spray hand sanitizers on the tables. Food was delicious. Service was good a little slower than I would have liked at some points but overall very good. Excellent choice for vegetarians and pescatarian patrons.
Food was delicious, service was impeccable and super quick. Servers were polite and welcoming. Also quite good value for money, would highly recommend
We did not need help and it was not offered. Menu was clear about ingredients.
Our waiter was not wearing a mask and did not respect social distancing, ie came a bit too close to diners.
Great as always ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I went with my daughter for lunch. We were celebrating her getting her first job. She had a Hemingway cocktail, I had an Ivy Royale, which were both delicious and pink and celebratory. It is an attractive brasserie with a long bar, which is a good way to furnish a restaurant. The staff were very attentive and very kindly gave us a little celebration cake as I had told the waitress the reason for our visit (proud mum couldn't help herself). All in all an enjoyable and memorable visit. We ate seabass and haloumi salad which were good. I'd recommend the truffle chips.
Lovely food as always with the Ivy restaurants...
The Ivy Kensington is sensational and It offers something for every taste. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel special . The ambiance is exciting and the staff cant wait to make your occasion one to remember. .
The food is just moth watering though I am an addict for the blackened cod and the chocolate bomb. It is so nice to feel you have stepped back in time where service at restaurants were just perfect and you left a the restaurant. feeling happy
, content and looking forward to returning very soon.
We ordered the grilled halloumi and it was a hunk about 4 cm thick of raw halloumi that had been barely touched by the grill. Ideally it would have been sliced and grilled. The service was amazing.
If you are a Chelsea and Kensington resident ( and even from further afield in) this is an idea spot for Sunday lunch/brunch. The menu ticks all the right boxes and there is a lot to occupy the eyes as well as the mouth. I would like to return and try the restaurant and other times of the day.
In spite of all the covid-19 measures the Ivy has not lost any of its previous atmosphere.
We felt safe, the service was excellent and the food was up to its usual high standard.
Very high quality food for a reasonable price at a great location
Lovely atmosphere, fantastic service, and delicious food & cocktails to top it off.
Great food and staff! The new social distancing measures are a little odd, they don’t seem effective as screens are placed behind diners and none are between the tables meaning that they don’t actually create a barrier between customers.
Really lovely experience
Felt safe and food was delicious
Waiters did not wear any face masks at all and came super close to take the order. Felt unsafe.
Great meal, we had the large table at the back which was perfect. Very friendly, great food and great wine.
