Fish & Chips
Traditional battered cod served with mashed peas, thick cut chips and tartare sauce
Hand chopped beef striploin with Tabasco dressing, cornichon, shallot, parsley, egg yolk and toasted granary
slow service and cold chips. ended up fairly expensive for what we had. the menu doesn't seem to have changed for years.
Very Busy need more staff to make it better, but food was excellent.
My fillet steak was cooked incredibly overcooked and could not be eaten but when I mentioned this to server at the end of the meal he knocked if off our bill, the staff was very attentive but the food let it down
If you like noise and good bar food then this’ll do the trick. Too noisy for us though
Delicious food in a beautiful setting with very attentive staff. Must book gets busy.
Was a fairly average experience. Was very busy and felt too overcrowded. Had to ask other dinners to pull chairs in to get out to use the bathroom. Service was friendly but slow and food was just pit anywhere on the table for us to arrange between the 7 of us. Ordered drinks and waited ages which meant no time for anymore as was made very clear our table was only for 2 hours.
Good food with a great atmosphere but felt a little rushed and frenetic.
The food at the Ivy Cafe is consistently high quality so is a perfect venue.
The service was great. The waiter was attentive and very helpful. We didn’t wait long to be served and the food and drinks were served promptly, which was good as we had a pre-theatre meal.
Overall, an enjoyable meal with my granddaughter.
Absolutely amazing food and staff , desperate for one the beautiful jackets the girls where wearing
Our main meal arrived before our drinks and olives so had to go back
Second time we have had this happen last time in soho
Servers were very good
After a quiet birthday last year, only able to spend it with family, it was my absolute delight to host my teenager daughter and her friends for a birthday lunch at The Ivy Market Grill, Covent Garden.
The cocktails were an absolute marvel and fully impressed the 18 year olds (and a lovely mocktail for the underage teen was also apparently delicious!)
The food (a wide variety was ordered) was lovely, but what really made the lunch was the truly outstanding service.
Thank you very much. You have set the standard high for a table full of young adults.
Food was good and once ordered served very quickly
Lovely waiter, great food and a mini birthday profiterole thrown in too!
Four of us dined. There was a good selection on the menu and all food was really enjoyed. The service was really good and the restaurant has a nice ambience. Would definitely go back to dine here again and would recommend.
Brillant , food , cocktails, wine and service. An overall experience that I will remember and recommend
Booked a table for 8pm arrived on time to then be told to have a seat at the bar as table not ready. Had to wait 25 mins for a table I had booked over 2 months before. If I wanted to stand at a bar I’d have gone to a bar…. Disappointing start.
Once at the table the waiter looking after us was pleasant. This was my third visit to Ivy Market Grill and this time it wasn’t a patch on previous visits.
It was very crowded and service was not great, food was nice.
Amazing venue, love art deco feel, service brilliant, food amazing and prettiest toilets I've ever seen!
Our coats were not taken so quite squashed into our table.
Long waits when asking for the bill had to ask 3 times for the bill.
No hand sanitizer on tables.
Just overall a poor service compared to visiting other ivy restaurants would not go again to the ivy market grill.
Very nice evening although our table wasn’t ready when we arrived. We sat at the bar for over 30mins and needed to remind staff we were still waiting for our table.
Birthday dinner however the Rabbit & Langoustine pie had lots of small sharp bones which was unpleasant and painful on the gums. This was reported to the manager who voided the charge on that dish.
Lovely place to eat and soak up the ambiance. Food amazing and our waiter was really friendly and professional.
The food was lovely the service was very good would recommend
A very enjoyable eating experience. Very friendly staff and the the was excellent. Excellent value will definitely eat there again.
Food was really good but was let down by the service.
As we walked in and was greeted, not with a hello, but your early, come back in 15 minutes!
And when we did come back, on the hour, we had to wait
Very rude, all the staff looked very stressed
But nevertheless the food was lovely
Very abrupt member of staff on the door but all waiting staff was polite and attentive.
Food was okay but I was expecting something a bit more special.
Felt rushed. Not relaxed and the lobster linguini lacked depth of flavour. Rest of food was good
We really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere, service was always very quick and good - Would defo go here again
Lovely dinner! The food was very tasty, though the fillet steak wasn’t quite the level I was expecting. The staff were great all in all, though it did feel like we were a bit of inconvenience when we asked to see the cocktail menu or needed more time to order. All in all a great experience but could be better
The service was very good could not do enough for us it was my daughter’s 40th they made her day very special the waiter was excellent thank you so much we will be back
Good Food, atmosphere and service, excellent table tucked away in the corner, particularly good as one of our party is deaf.
Really lovely lunch….food was excellent. Nice wine, nice service, nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Our booking was a Saturday lunchtime and it was exceptionally busy. Overall not a bad experience for my first visit. My friend and I ordered the same starter and it was luke warm. Another friend received the wrong gin order, although the order could have been lost in translation. The staff were attentive, but we were not given a fixed time slot and felt like we were being hurried out. One of my friend's had been before and felt that the standard had dropped since her last visit.
The food was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive. Worth going to for a special occasion.
Unfortunately our visit was spoiled as one of our party did not get their food until the rest of us had finished ours and we had to ask for it a couple of times. We ordered a White Rioja and got Red. As it had been opened before we noticed we kept it. Food was good but service although polite and friendly was all over the place. We were served by 4 different people. Not good on this occasion
Fabulous food - lovely staff and a really super venue. Thank you
Really well done
Wonderful food , attentive staff, excellent service, delicious cocktails, made my daughter’s birthday treat very special ! Lucas our waiter was superb - always ready to serve but we never felt rushed. Highly recommended.
Lovely food and excellent service, would recommend a visit here.
