    Wonderful evening at The Ivy. The surroundings are beautiful and the staff were friendly and attentive without being obsequious. The food was first class and the sauce of the rabbit and langoustine pie was divine. Possibly my new favourite Glasgow restaurant.

    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 !!

    Table of 6 for lunch celebrating for 3 friends birthdays. Everyone agreed lovely building. Nice round table. Very hot in downstairs restaurant. No one liked the the set menu. Everyone Choose the a la carte menu. Again some people struggling for choice. Everyone agreed food was nice but nothing special and definitely overpriced. Overall we were a little disappointed. Waitress service was ok.

    Lovely elegent decor with some very artisitic classy features. We arrived unexpectedly really and the staff looked after us well whilst waiting. There is also a stylish cocktail bar upstairs. There is a good staff presence and they all appear to be well trained with a good sense of humour and not too starchy. We had a delicious two course meal, the highlights of which were the souffle, and a tasty minute steak with a rich pepper sauce. The menu appears to have a rnage of dishes to suit a wide range of pockets. Nice ambiance and would highly recommend

    For my starter I had lovely Scallops, Pototoe Rosti with Pea sauce it was delicious. For my main i had Duck curry which was excellent full of lovely flavours. My partner had Lobster Linguine plenty of lobster full of flavour would definitely recommend.

    Amazing atmosphere and service, helped us to celebrate an important birthday in style. With a price range similar to Miller & Carter and the butchershop, their steak was by far the most value for money complimented with amazing sides and sauces.

    Service couldn't be faulted. Food on the other hand was mixed. Rabbit/linguine pie was excellent but don't understand why served on its own, added mash was perfect. Burger also ordered but meat was tasteless and accompanying chips didn't do it any favours. Lovely ambience but over priced for quality of food served. Won't hurry back.

    Very disappointed in my burger. Dry and rubbery, like a frozen burger you would expect from a pub lunch. Not what I would expect from a high end restaurant. I was so looking forward to going there and there was 4 of us for a friend’s birthday. The shepherds pie was said to be nice apart from it being spoiled with cheesy mash on top instead of just normal mash. The minute steaks were again nice but they said swimming in peppercorn sauce so they couldn’t see the steak underneath, as you couldn’t see if there was fat on it or not so they too were not happy. On a plus our starter and desserts were a hit. You want to see how to do a great burger ???? Go to your rivals 63rd and 1st and they will show you how it’s done.

    Avoid table 37 - booked weeks in advance only to be placed at this table. It is at the back of the restaurant facing the servers station so you do not get ‘The Ivy’ experience. Sadly wrong dish served too and my guest ended up eating alone while I waited for mine - they did not offer to take hers away and serve both together. Overall not a great experience. No doubt a beautiful building if you get the right table. Perhaps we were unlucky. Automatic service charge added too which niggles me - surely my choice to decide.

    Excellent service, delicious food, gorgeous cocktails and a relaxed, lux deco environment. If you enjoy a theatrical element to your meal, would recommend the whisky smoked steak tartare and the chocolate bomb. Both delicious with a wee bit of extra flare.
