    As all Ivy locations the building and decor is fantastic although I do walk away thinking the food doesn’t match the scenery. Don’t get me wrong the food is nice but not a good as it could be.

    It was definitely average…and I’d expect more given the bill. Perfectly nice food but £155 for 2 I was hoping for a bit more. Feels just like a ‘chain’ restaurant. Won’t rush back

    Gorgeous interior, staff were great and very friendly, as was customer service. A bit disappointed in some of the food - chips did not taste very fresh and the whipped ricotta starter was dry and tasteless. But very much enjoyed our other dishes. Homemade ginger beer was great. Restaurant had slightly bad acoustics and it was very noisy despite not being totally full, so occasionally we had to raise our voices to each other to be heard. Amazed to find that staff within the restaurant were not wearing masks, and our table had not been thoroughly cleaned after the customers before us - as there were drinks rings in the middle of the table.

    Made a booking to celebrate partners birthday with a hearty brunch to start the day. Food & Service was amazing! Loved the atmosphere and decor and to top it off, one of the waitresses delivered a birthday profiterole with a candle to my partner. What a great surprise. It’s the little things that count :-)

    Ordered two drinks to be followed by two cream teas. Drinks never arrived and cream teas started to be brought to the table at which point we cancelled the drinks. There were apologies for their non-arrival and we started on the very nice cream teas . Then the drinks arrived. The waiter was rather put out because “the bar is very busy you know”. Then came the bill. Having been studied by our waiter, who knew of the problems we’d had, it was proffered and bore no resemblance to our order. And neither did the next bill. Eventually the third bill did match our order but unsurprisingly we declined to pay the 12.5% service charge.

    Requested a quiet table - however, we were sat next to a table with a toddler and a baby! Ordered 2 full English breakfasts. They arrived quickly and were delicious. Had to wait for the toast to arrive with one of the breakfasts though and our coffees arrived half way through our meal. Waited about 30 mins to get our bill. But they removed the service charge automatically as they knew the service we received was not up to the usual standard at The Ivy. Overall, food was fantastic as always. But service could have been better.

    Amazing food, really enjoyed our evening, however we were seated next to the register, where they booked the orders, the lady running the shop floor that evening and taking orders needed to keep her calm in front of guests, she was telling off her staff and banging the register screen. It was extremely busy evening I guess

    We have visited many of the Ivy Brasseries and this fell a little short of the usual high standard.Not through any fault of the staff who were working hard,however with the number of guests,l think that there was a shortage of staff to give the high quality service we have come to expect.

    First time to the Bath Ivy since covid. It’s one of our faves for a pre-theatre meal and we were keen to return. Despite arriving nearly 30 minutes early, we were able to be seated which was a good start. Service throughout was good as usual. Out starters, duck parfait and duck salad were delicious. My wife and I both chose fish and chips for main and it was slightly disappointing. Yes, a large portion but the chips were simply ok and the batter on the fish was too thick. For the most part, we were eating more batter than fish. A couple of cocktails to start, a nice glass of wine each with the meal and coffees to finish. The fish and chips were one of the cheaper dishes on the menu but the total of just over £100 felt a bit toppy given the average main.

    Food is OK, but not great, service below par and comfort wasn’t the best mostly as a result of the restaurant being too hot. Ivy brassiere has become a bit too formulaic for me for the price. I’ll stick to the original
