Birthday celebration for my wife.
Food was excellent
Atmosphere/ Ambiance was fantastic, love the low lighting, music created a lovely background but not a distraction.
Drinks were great and we certainly sampled a few.
Our waitress Ellie was fantastic and a real credit to the restaurant, she certainly added to our evening.
Can’t wait to return for another visit
Thank you!

The food, as always was good, however the service was particularly poor and not what I expect from the Ivy. I have been fortunate to visit a number of different Ivy Brasseries restaurants within the Uk and was really disappointed in this one. I fully understand if staff levels were impacted by either covid or recruitment, but at least let us know that - we had to ask for our drinks twice and kept chasing our bill - our waitress completely disappeared at one point!!

Service was extremely slow. We waited 40 minutes for a drink.

We were asked as the bill arrived how our meal had been and when we explained, a round of drinks was removed from our bill.

Front of house was great but waitress was dreadful. Waited 45 minutes for our meals. Guests who were seated after us got their meals before us. No attention to our table. Waited half an hour to get someones attention to get some drinks, was given the menu but no one returned to take our order. Meals came and were average, would have been nicer with a drink in hand. When we asked for the bill, the waitress didn’t even ask how our meal was, just stood in silence whilst we made payment. Ruined birthday breakfast. Visited many Ivy’s and all have all been brilliant, this location should learn from the others.

Great tasting food, but staff were inattentive - didn’t ask about drinks, bring drinks we asked for, refill water or ask how our any of our courses were.

Really enjoyed the dining however you feel the pressure of rushing for dinner, they allow 1 and 45 min. It is overall an expensive place.

I was charged for a drink that we didn’t have. The fish batter was too much. However the young lady Isiah , with a yellow coat on was exceptional. Very courteous and helpful.

Very busy, sat at bar to wait for table, no acknowledgement from bar staff until one young man cutting the fruit asked if we had been served, the other bar man said they was not serving any customers at the bar.
Hostess should of told us this before we sat there waiting.
Was moved to inside table when originally booked outside so was very greatful for that. Waitress was good food was quick bday candle after was lovely
Have been to Ivy city garden and find it much more relaxing think it was over booked and staff particularly bar staff struggled with numbers.
Would go again at a quieter time

Staff were great but we had a few issues with the food. My husbands soup was cold and my soufflé had a piece of blue paper towel in the middle. Both were taken off the bill and replaced but not ideal for the high standards expected

Food was amazing, couldn’t fault it. However the service was very slow and hard to get anyones attention as they were so busy. It didn’t feel very personal, and it was so loud in there you could barely hear the waiters.

On Wednesday I sat on a table next to the general manager and HR who were having a meeting.

We had absolutely no service for most of the dinner.

Had to ask 3 times for a bottle of champagne, had to ask 4 times to have it poured.

I had to go to the bar to get a red wine glass.

I had to stand up to serve red wine around the table.

Meanwhile there were always over 3 waiters doting on their colleagues on the next table.

I complained to the waiter. He said that we are expected to pour our own wine.

What is service?

In business you serve the client, not your own staff.

It was embarrassing… how can you have 3-4 waiters serving 3 people, meanwhile we had none?

I asked to have an apology from the general manager. Have heard nothing.

Awful evening.

Booked last minute and ordered from the pre-Theatre menu. Excellent value and really good food. Service was very friendly and all the staff had a great attitude. Only slight criticisms are that drinks orders took a long time to arrive, on a few occasions it was hard to get a servers attention to place an order, and some items of cutlery were forgotten when serving main courses - we had to ask for those after a few minutes. These are all minor things though, overall the place is excellent and I would highly recommend it. We will visit again.

It was all pleasant enough, but nothing special. The food for the most part was ordinary, and so felt to me to be over-priced. You’re probably paying for the name and location. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and efficient.
