    Food lovely. Service great. They could really reduce the bread starter to a smaller size as it is a small loaf! Fish great. My wife loved the lobster pasta dish. Sensible amount of lobster meat made it good value. Wine was superb as well. Many thanks for a great evening. As always I rejected the unacceptable service charge, preferring to pay the server directly. Such a good restaurant needs to abandon this dreadful practice as most people, unlike me, do not ask who gets the money. Pathetic money grabbing illusion.

    A great lunch, my guest was a 1st timer at the Ivy and was very impressed and plans on making a return visit, He thinks of himself as a wine buff but also commented that the house red was very good!!

    We had a lunch business meeting and overall it was very good indeed. We were given a table in the quieter upstairs area (without having to ask) and we really appreciated the low noise level to be able to have in depth discussions over lunch. One of us asked for something not on the menu and this was easily accomodated. Food was good quality, service was great except one beverage ordered was forgotten and we had to remind the waiting staff. Small thing which was no big deal and everything else was to the good standard expected of the Ivy. Regarding price, it is expensive at 3 figures for 3 dishes, water and 2 coffees but that seems to be the normal in city centre.

    Spent a wonderful evening dining at The Ivy with friends. The ambience and decor in the restaurant is wonderful and the staff were so polite and courteous and made you feel very welcome and special. The food was delicious. We had sourdough bread and the courgette fritters to nibble on whilst we had some pre-dinner cocktails - very generous sized portions - a whole loaf of bread and a large mound of finely shredded and fried courgette sticks - absolutely delicious! Extensive cocktail menu and mocktails too - though the non-alcoholic ones are equally pricey so take note. Our main courses were also very good and the waiter came and asked us if we were ready for the chef to start preparing our food! I had the special of the day - Duck curry which was tasty. Deserts were also very yummy - I had the chocolate bomb which satisfied my sweet craving and my friends had the panna cotta which looked fab and they said it was delicious too. Overall - it's a lovely restaurant for special occasion dining. They do have a set menu which is good value and still good choices of around 3 or 4 options per course.

    If you are looking for delicious food, tasty cocktails in a beautiful setting served by friendly waiting staff then you have come to the right place. Great location in heart of Glasgow. I would recommend the scallops starter. They will make a cocktails your choice even if not on the list! Dined with 3 friends and we all loved it!

    It was nice to go to the Ivy but more for the experience and to say we've been rather than because it was a brilliant experience and I'd go back, because we wouldn't. The menu was limited and all the food tasted fried. The steak was nice but the fact you have to order chips or whatever else with it is scandalous! The service was good and the ambiance. However the service charge that is added to the bill is a joke, if the food and drinks were not so expensive they're may be a chance I'd pay it and if it wasn't an expectation I might have paid it, or if I'd have not had to pay for chips separate to my meal that you'd just expect to come with it then maybe I'd have paid it. Overall it wasn't a bad experience but not great either and not one I'll be repeating!

    I have wanted to visit for a long time and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food delicious! I chose The Ivy Burger and it was honestly the best burger I have ever eaten. I am still thinking about it now!!! My only criticism would be the greeting we received. The ladies working at the front door could do with smiling once in a while as they looked miserable!

    Having visted other Ivy locations, Glasgow had a familiar feel at the same time as having a unique character reflecting the history and legcay of the city. Food was of the usual excellant standard, service was great, punctual, attentive and helpful. So pleased we got a table in this buy location. We will be back the next time we visit Glasgow

    The quality of the food was excellent and portions were more than adequate based on the prices charged. The decor and ambience was first class. Only issue was being seated so close to the bar which was not a good experience. The service was immpecible and could not be faulted!!

    Can’t fault the service, 10/10. Our waiter and all the other staff serving our table went above and beyond, unfortunately there was a hair in our food which we sent back and they had forgotten about 2 x side of chips which they did bring out once we asked. The table next to us sent their steak back as it wasn’t cooked to their liking and they were given money off their bill for the inconvenience caused, when we got our bill we were charged the full price which we were surprised after what had happened. Not sure I would rush back.

    My best friend and I took our daughters there to celebrate their 30th birthday. The food was lovely and the service outstanding. If I had one negative thing to say, it would be the service charge already added to the bill, don’t like that, prefer to decide on my own tip. If the service had been shocking I would have asked them to remove it but as it was really good we didn’t make a fuss.
