    Sadly this was not a great time on this occasion it was sooooo busy you were sitting on top of the next table !! So much so you could hardly get passed to get out Far to many tables booked and not enough room Our waiter was like a headless chicken running around we had to ask everytime for something Even though we booked in advance and turned up 15 mins early I feel we were put into the walk in area. The wine is very expensive and not much by the glass to choose from. Will not rush back here too greedy and not getting the service you pay for.

    The waiter in a noisy restaurant was bumped and spilled a tray of drinks next to our table. While he apologised- and they cleared up part of it, although left glass round my friend’s feet for the remainder of the meal, nothing else was done until I found glass in my meal! it would have been better service- especially at their prices- to offer to replace straight away rather than wait until I had glass in my mouth. They did replace at that point but made no adjustment to the bill and expected a tip, which we removed from the bill. The service was slow anyway and one of the waiters tried to make a joke out of it, calling it a ‘food challenge’. not great

    Food was good but for some reason even though there were loads of empty tables they decide to sit you right on top of each other. Found that really odd. Our table was too small for our breakfast to fit on so that was awkward and I found myself piling things up just so we could fit our drinks and plates on the table.

    We had to wait 20 minutes for our table that was pre booked. Our starter was delicious, our main was ok, steak was warm temperature at best. Restaurant very loud and cramped. Not my best Ivy experience compared to other Ivy restaurants.

    Excellent lunch venue in the heart of Covent Garden. We had three starters to share. Crispy Duck salad was delicious - I would have this as a main course if offered. The scallops were tender and accompanied by a delicate foam and the salt and pepper squid was OK - not as seasoned as I like. The Wimbledon inspired Centre Court dessert was a WoW! Excellent experience.

    Our food came out pretty much burnt, and then when we complained, the waiter said he would take mine off the bill which was fine. But once the bill arrived, they didn’t take it off the bill and the manager blamed us for it being burnt and was really rude. He then proceeded to have a massive go at the waiter who served us, right in front of us for about 5-10 minutes which made us all very uncomfortable. They then charged us for loads of other things we never ordered, and the manager got even more annoyed. We then asked to speak to the main manager, who hopefully had a word with the other one. Waited so long each time we ordered our drinks. We were there for my birthday and the team serving us just made us feel very uncomfortable and the food was just burnt. We will not be returning anytime soon.

    The service was very friendly and helpful. The starters were tasty, the duck liver was 5 out of 5. The fish and chips were not my personal favorite, seemed to be a bit greasy. It could be the type of dish, not the food itself. Other than that, it was nice. Great decorations!

    Booked for my boyfriends birthday, he is a vegetarian, I looked at menu online before booking there was good a choice of veggie dishes. When we viewed the menu at restaurant it didn’t have as much choice, waiter told us the website hasn’t been updated for a while so to ignore it. He recommended the halloumi burger but then told us that was only a available to order until 4pm, our table was booked for 5pm! Manager then came over &amp; said he would insist chef make it if that’s what we wanted so he did. Drinks were v pricy, I chose the £6.50 glass of house Rose but was charged £16.50 as the waiter put through the wrong item, he took £10 off when challenged. I choose the Ivy as I wanted to make it a special night but I left feeling like I’d made the wrong choice 👎🏼
