    We had a fantastic evening at The Ivy, Glasgow. Our waiter Rhys couldn’t do enough for us and made us feel like VIPs. The food was outstanding as was the vast choice of cocktails. Thank you Rhys and The Ivy for creating a night we will remember for a lifetime.

    Food was average in comparison to other times I've been. A basketful of fried, greasy Courgettes!? ........ Adequate burger and chips , overpriced. Items sold out. Set meal mains failed to impress. Good service saved the night.

    Went to the Ivy for a birthday lunch. Staff friendly attentive and helpful The set lunch menu does not have a good selection so opted for a la carte The food was excellent and had no problem when I requested an alternative sauce with my meal. Good selection of desserts, would recommend the chocolate bomb. A nice gesture was a small cake with a candle for my partners birthday. Only downside is the 12.5% service charge added to the bill.

    This is a beautifully designed restaurant. Very instagrammable especially the ladies toilet! All the starters were excellent. We had the scallops, the haggis bon bons and the cheese soufflé. They were all very good. I wasn’t that impressed with the mains, lobster fettucine and the duck curry…they weren’t nearly as flavorful as the starters. My husband loved his entree, the minute steak and he ate every last bite. For dessert we shared the Apple Fine Tarte. It was flambed at the table and was the perfect ending to our meal.

    The food was out of this world and it was just an all round excellent first visit at The Ivy, as such I will definitely be back in future. Our waiter went above and beyond what I would expect and would like to single him out for recognition. We were there for my partner’s birthday and along with the fantastic food he made it a night to remember, he knew the menu inside out and nothing was a hassle for him. To top it off he came out with a small birthday cake which just topped off a perfect evening.

    The automatic 12.5% 'discretionary service charge' addition is reprehensible and very probably illegal as it is not clearly stated up front on the Ivy menus. I have yet to see a 'discretionary service charge' added on a two person bill - tipping as a practice must solely be at the discretion of the patron rather than a mandate enforced by the establishment. Please note that I normally always tip in cash because tips on a credit card often end up not being given to the server who has earned it. Overall, an otherwise pleasant dining experience was completely ruined by the imposition of a scam charge on the bill without prior notice or any possible justification under the dubious pretext of a 'discretionary service charge'. Please be informed that as a consequence, I will not return to this establishment, and will recommend others to avoid it for the same reason.
