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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Poor service
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.

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

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

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.

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
