Food was good; thoroughly enjoyed both the asparagus starter and the Shepherd’s Pie. The outstanding element was the service by Alex; he was attentive and timely. It was a bit noisy, but it was a busy late afternoon.

The food was fine but not up to the usual standards I’ve had in other ivy branches, the restaurant is quite dark and we were seated right at the back which seemed cramped.

Book for breakfast in London on our last morning of a weekend trip, hadn’t appreciated that breakfast finishes earlier on the Sunday and just missed out however still a selection of brunch dishes with chips on the side. It was very busy, having visited both Edinburgh and Glasgow I didn’t feel the experience was as I had expected bit disappointing.

We came here after thoroughly enjoying a meal here back in 2019 and the food did not disappoint again
Unfortunately, the service (at times) was disappointing after we had drinks not served and all our mains had to be re-ordered as our original order which was taken down had 'gone missing'
Overall though the food was good and we had a good time

The food at this restaurant is good but not exceptional for the price point

The venue overlooking Covent Garden is fantastic - shame about the torrential downpour whilst at an outside table but everything possible had been done to keep us dry

Service was excellent

Booked for my boyfriends birthday and requested a pudding with candle at the end like I got last time for my birthday at the ivy Brighton. This did not happen. Our table was separated into two tables and people next to use were pretty much on top of us. They were not happy about it either. Really noisy and food was average. I wouldn’t visit again.

Service wasn’t as attentive as you would expect for such a highly regarded place. We’d barely had drinks served, before our starters came and our mains arrived at the same time. All in all a bit overrated from previous experiences I’ve had here.

My daughter and I had a fantastic meal on Saturday evening. Food, service and general atmosphere were all as wonderful as we have grown to expect from The Ivy. It’s so reassuring going for a meal knowing that you’re not going to be disappointed. Loved it 😍

We were asked to come back 15 mins later than our reservation time because the table wasn’t ready and the bar was full, we overheard 2 tables complaining about how long they’d waited. It generally felt very disorganised so wasn’t the best welcome. The food came quickly and it was really good. I did expect more from the service, we had to get someone’s attention a few times for drinks, dessert menus and the bill. Overall an OK experience but the Ivy in Manchester is much better in comparison

Food was delicious, great menu with lots of choice. For what you pay the service wasn’t to the standard expected as our table was very small for 6 people and the staff didn’t really help with making us comfortable. We were also rushed at the end even though we were under our 2 hour 15 minute slot.

We were a party of 3. Beware if you are 3 you are likely to be parked on a table in the middle of a busy corridor we asked to move and were shown to a similar place at the back where it was very dark. The food wasn't great. A chicken salad. How easy is it to make that good or really good?
I had an Apperol spritz and the measure of Apperol was not generous and so it was quite tasteless.

The food was quite good but the service was over intrusive and even felt slight pushy. A little overpriced but enjoyed my meal there with friends regardless.

Booked for outside but we were seated inside downstairs! Very disappointing as it was not raining and sunny outside. We were told it was closed outside as rain was expected! But nearly all the tables outside were occupied enjoying the sunshine! Not good shame

Food and ambience were only good however I thought the service was only just fair. Rude waiter for our table. Another waiter did serve for our sweet menu and she was much more polite as was the staff member on our arrival.
Much better restaurants within easy walking distance, the name drags this one along I feel.
