Service was poor. As soon as we walked in felt like we was in trouble as we were spoken to quite abruptly. Throughout our visit we was reminded about 6 times that they were closing at 10, which obviously we were aware of. Especially considering it was shouted at us by the lady at the front desk as soon as we arrived. Nice food and nice scenery, unfortunately ruined by the staff.
There seemed to be confusion when entering the premises, due to new Covid regulations, but it did feel that we were left outside and then didn’t seem much of a hurry to let us in, but once in and seated, it was lovely. The food was delightful and the portions were sufficient.
Have been before and enjoyed it but this time was really disappointing. We are put in the basement room on a table for two and it was really depressing- not at all like the other countless Ivy experiences I’ve had. Food was average and I could have cooked the risotto better myself. Sorry but won’t be returning.
Always a fantastic place for a great meal. Food was amazing and the staff are never faraway to help if required.

Lovely meal in a nice setting. Service was excellent
We had a lovely meal, food and drinks were lovely, although a tad pricey!
The meal was a special treat for my girlfriend as she was off to uni.
Definitely recommend and will visit again
They had really worked hard at keeping everyone COVID safe and it didn't detract from our experience at all. Well done to them all.
The only real problem with the Ivy Market Grill is they have not figured out social distance entrance and exit. Though given the importance of this, when busy it is a huge problem.
The entry way is always clogged up with people arriving, and there is no social distancing at the entrance, and there is no signage to indicate where one should exit.
The staff and the management need to do a much better job of explaining to people how the system works and providing indications and signs on site.
Delicious food and a gorgeous setting. Would definitely recommend!
Food was good but not great value for money. Waiter was nice but welcome staff were quite rude. We were 10 mins late but I had called to explain and apologise, they did hold our table for us though which was good.
Lovely restaurant, nice atmosphere, great food, a little pricey but still good value. Only downside was that I was seated facing away from the other diners, facing my boyfriend and the wall, so couldn't see anything going on in the restaurant
The staff were lovely and the food was as ever amazing xx
Our dining experience was absolutely perfect , from the reception area to leaving the restaurant at 10pm it was a great dining experience and one we will definitely repeat . The ambience was so right, the service superb our waiter was so attentive but without being intrusive . The food was amazing in its quality and presentation and a great beverage menus . We are very much looking forward to coming again . Thank you IVY .
Good Covid precautions. Attentive staff, good food and cocktails for reasonable prices for central London
We had a lovely evening, celebrating a birthday. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious (the chocolate bombe was outstanding) and not overpriced for London. A decent bottle of wine wasn’t cheap but we’re not complaining, particularly as it was so fantastic to be eating out and feeling relatively normal in these trying times. My partner was presented with a mini birthday cake complete with a candle which was a nice touch to round off the evening.
The Ivy Market Grill provides a very good upper mid range restaurant experience. For London the prices are reasonable. Service was good and friendly during our visit. We really enjoyed ourselves.
I have been in London for 1 month and have visited The Ivy 10 times.Its lovely..beautiful ambience,delicious food presented superbly and great service..I highly recommend
I was very disappointed to see that all people working in the restaurant including the wait staff were not wearing masks. I mentioned this to my friends as we had another booking for 6 people and that we cancelled.
A friend and I had a late lunch at the Ivy Market Grill on Sunday 20 September. The ambience was lovely, the food delicious and the service excellent. We had a brilliant evening.
As always The Ivy is just perfect in every way. If you, like me, were fearful that the brand would be reduced, in fact it is the Ivy reaching out in to towns and cities across the UK. Enjoy this Ivy, very covent garden with an outside area.
Great as always! Requested special table and was given it
Great food we really enjoyed our visit. Would definitely book there again
Just lovely. A special treat, everything I expected.
We had a lovely experience celebrating my fiancé’s birthday. We done here every time we come to London. Very consistent. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful staff always happy to see you back - great meal as always
Service, food, setting, everything was great will definitely be back
Lovely restaurant in the middle of Covent Garden. I took some friends there for dinner. This place has an excellent menu and wine list and the food is beautifully cooked and presented. Overall the service was very good and I will look forward to going there again another time. Thank you.
The food was lovely. Staff friendly.
Unfortunately there was no social distancing at all with staff and customer I expected more from this establishment as it is a popular restaurant.
Are table wasn’t ready and we had to wait even though I had booked well in advance.
Toilets were dirty and stunk, With Covid going around u would expect the toilets to be very clean.
I know in your risks assessment all eating Places and bars are expected to have hand sanitiser to hand and 2 meters distancing marked I saw none of this at The Ivy.
If it wasn’t a birthday treat paid by someone else I would of left.
Management and staff were fantastic! We originally sat on the side road but the management team ensured we were transferred into the patio to celebrate my friends bday!
Thank you to all the staff at reception who took our bags and to the kitchen who carefully double checked my friend’s nut allergy!
It was rather a pleasant visit. We were greeted by a friendly team although the farewell was vague. Our server was professional and very efficient.
The area that could have been better is to have kept the open wine bottle in eye sight near the table but rather than that and the inability to accommodate one more person post booking it was a very good!
We had a lovely meal the food was delicious and not over priced. The drinks were lovely and the service excellent.
Food and drink was delicious, our waiter was so friendly and lovely. Had a great time there, would defiantly recommend
Lovely meal, amazing service, highly recommend! Lovely atmosphere, tables were spaced out nicely too
Excellent restaurant , food and atmosphere was amazing
When we arrived we were seated at the front of the restaurant, the doors were open leading to outside and it was just to cold for us as we had older grandparents with us. We asked to be moved and was told there was a table downstairs. At first it was just us and another table and I was worried that I had booked The Ivy and we wasn’t going to get the experience we wanted sitting downstairs, but it all turned out fine, it perhaps was more for couples but we had a great time. Service was spot on and the food was fantastic. Thank you!
Very helpful staff and attentive. Good food as always
Souffle was superb
Meal rather spoilt by waiter taking the wrong amount for the bill and didn't offer to rectify the split bill so we sorted it out ourselves.
The service was as expected but the quality of the food was very poor-we both had different choices of fish which we found dry and warm rather than being hot.
Certainly not what I expected for the profile of this restaurant
Unfortunately would not return or recommend
All four of us enjoyed our lunch. My sister whose birthday it was thought the cake with a candle was delicious.
