    Welcoming staff, attentive service ( perhaps a tad too rushed device )… cosy ambiance, but DJ and music far too loud!! We could not hear each other talking!! Good food but menu is not over innovative! Menu card doesn’t match the restaurant standard: looks like a pub menu!!

    We received a voucher for The Ivy as a wedding gift. We arrived and were taken upstairs to a lovely table by a friendly front of house. The servers were very attentive and the service fast. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed and the food was delicious. The waitress surprised us with a free dessert to congratulate us on our wedding which was a lovely touch. We had never considered visiting The Ivy before we received the voucher, now we will be back every chance we get.

    I brought an old friend to The Ivy to give him an his wife & her cousin the taste of Glasgow dining. He is American & his wife is Spanish. They live in Sevilla & it was his 1st time coming to Scotland. I'm sure he will pass on his experience to friends & family. Thank you for making their visit enjoyable. 👌👌🥳🥳👋👋👋👋

    Visited for brunch, the food was fabulous, as were the cocktails! We were made to feel so welcome, The staff were really attentive and friendly, but not intrusive and it was a great atmosphere. We moved from our table and sat up at the bar to have coffee and drinks. We had a lovely afternoon, it was a special treat and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We will definitely be visiting again very soon!

    The food was delicious, the ambiance was outstanding. the only downside was the noise. The music was lovely but it was a bit loud for us. It would be better to keep the music at a moderate level to be able to hear each other better.

    The service was nowhere near as good as the last time, felt as if they were trying to hurry you up so they could get next customer in. Food is ok, but there are better restaurants in Glasgow. Without the ambiance and service not worth going to won't hurry back.

    Very disappointed in the food. Scallops Luke warm, prawn cocktail mainly salad and due to the way it was presented it was difficult to eat. Fish was good but chips dry and Luke warm. Did not want to complain as I was with my friends from America and didn’t want to cause an fuss in front of them.

    I went to the Ivy when it opened I ordered a steak medium rare and it came out fleshy and raw!! I was then asked to come back for a 2nd time and I had the steak again “RAW” the manager apologised and asked me to come back for a third time and I declined! So twice I have gone to the ivy and twice I left without eating !! So I decided it has been a few years maybe they have gotten better ! No I was served over done steak sat in a corner at the entrance which was cold and then the manager refused to come and see me which the waiter had asked him in three occasions ! So waited 15 minutes from asking to getthe bill to it actually arriving they took the price of the steak off the meal but cold chips lukewarm overdone steak ! Why can’t the Ivy just get it right it is so sad when you get lovely attentive staff and service a lovely place to sit and eat and terrible food 😢

    The Ivy never fails to impress. The service is impeccable provided by friendly staff who are attentive without being intrusive, It goes without saying that the food is everything that you would expect, well presented , tasty and a real treat on a special occasion. Our most recent visit was to celebrate our Anniversary which they marked with couple of extra touches over and above what we had expected. It is always our “place to go” on any occasion.

    It was not just a lunch out with a friend - it was a wonderful experience - we both enjoyed it so much - we were very fortunate to be seated at a window seat looking out on to Buchanan Street in the heart of the city - the food was exquisite and the waitress serving us was amazing - I have never been asked when entering g a restaurant if there were any food allergies - attention to detail unbeatable !!
