    Ivy has a good atmosphere, not too pretentious and not rushed. Food is good, but what makes it outstanding is the staff and their attentiveness, just the right balance. They are a credit to the Ivy and without these professional staff it wouldn't be it worth it. Being there over the past year and see some of the same staff always with a smile. I recommend it!

    We were at our table for 15-20mins before we got assigned a waitress and saw some people leave because some of the staff just stood chatting away. Waitress was brilliant, very attentive and made sure we were ok and apologised. Food was poor …. TBH the overall experience was poor. Not worth the money and time.

    We had such a lovely welcome on arrival as always. Every member of the service team who attended to our table were so helpful and friendly even though the restaurant was very busy, so I really appreciated that - sorry I don’t know all your names! The food was lovely again; my ‘Eggs Royale’ eggs were cooked so perfectly I don’t know how they get them like that! It’s really worth trying the weekend brunch options if you haven’t already - filling and good value. I had the Apple Tart Fine dessert which is one of my favourite choices; not too heavy on your tummy but delicious. Thanks for another great visit to the Ivy Richmond!

    I am a regular visitor to The Ivy Cafe in Richmond and love taking family and friends there. Yesterday was to celebrate my mother in law's birthday and was the first time to visit on a Saturday. I left feeling a little disappointed. It was so busy, and the noise level was so high we couldn't hear each other speak; there seemed to be a different menu which wasn't as good - 2 of us chose from the main meals which were delicious, the other 2 chose from the brunch menu as there wasn't anything to suit them on the mains; and one of our waitresses was just miserable. I won't book for a Saturday again.

    The dish I chose, cod goujons was not great. Unfortunately my other option, the curry dish is made with chicken so not possible for me to eat. Any chance of making that with prawn or fish? If you can sort that, my world will be a happier place.

    Out for a catch up dinner with a good friend - food was very good and the service exemplary. I had the blacked cod which was excellent and the house wine is always good so we came away with a very acceptable bill at the end of the evening.

    We had Autumn afternoon tea for 5. Excellent service and food - beautiful setting - staff made my 18 year old daughter feel v special on her birthday presenting her with a profiterole cake and candle, beautifully decorated with chocolate. The sandwiches were absolutely delicious, scones amazing, great selection of teas and regular offer of top ups. fir my taste, slightly too much sweet stuff - maybe another savoury option could be included but a really generous high tea. Staff packed up our leftovers in boxes as we all got defeated by the feast!

    The bread delicious! The food we had for our main course was really disappointing. The meat was very poor quality, steak chewy and tasteless the burger tasted really revolting, inedible...

    Little disappointed for our mains to arrive pre us finishing the starters. We felt very rushed. It turned out they wanted us off the table so they could host more guests. We hadn’t even been in there 1 hour.

    Too rushed. Your main dish comes before the cocktail has been served. Server forgets to mention that nothing is included in the expensive ribeye bar the lukewarm steak. Second time in a row disappointed with the quality. Given there's more competition in Richmond, one would expect top quality throughout?

    We had a lovely birthday do at the Ivy. We decided to go at 4pm and found it was lovely and quiet in the restaurant and the table we were given was excellent. We were able to talk comfortable and had the tastiest of food and drink plus a little birthday dessert for the birthday girl. Will definitely come again!

    Average meal this evening not to usual standard one meal arrived a good 5 mins after everyone else’s. My friends hamburger wasn’t cooked through and had to be returned to the kitchen. Unfortunately a hair was also found in my friends dessert. Staff were apologetic and items removed form bill. Luckily we were enjoying each other’s company otherwise the meal would of been a disaster

    The service was not up to the standard one would expect- a salad was forgotten and therefore eaten after their main course, and a coffee was forgotten too. The manager was apologetic and waived the service charge. My shepherd's pie was small but beautifully flavoured!
