    Very slow initial service - offered water but nothing else for 40 minutes. Women of the age of my guests (70) do not appreciate being referred to as a “lovely lady”, as in “what would this lovely lady like?”; there was consistent over familiarity from the waiting staff as in “I suppose you know there is still caffeine in decaffeinated coffee”. The Shepherd’s Pie was disappointing : tepid temperature and the meat more minced than usual. We will be back to the Ivy group because the food is generally good but probably not to Wimbledon until there is visible improvement.

    The food was exquisite. Service was a bit muddled - we were given wrong food / drinks within our table - not really an issue thou . Would have been nice to have been in main restaurant instead of conservatory especially as we had a really loud party of women opposite who were completely over the top with their noise level

    Our waiter did well to cope with the number of tables assigned to him. It meant a long wait between starter and main, but ambience good, and staff friendly.

    As always, the food was excellent. Unfortunately we were given a table upstairs in the private room with just two other tables taken. I don't know why, since there were free tables downstairs when we arrived at 7.15 and also when we left a couple of hours later. One of the attractions of the Ivy Cafe is the ambience and of course this was entirely missing upstairs. We have organised private events in this room, which is perfect and an entirely different matter. In future I will specify that I wish to sit in the main dining room.

    Thank you for an overall lovely experience, as always. The only two minor points to raise relate to the food. The meat for the steak tartare main course was fatty. Fatty meat is good for cooked steak but not for tartare, which must be lean otherwise it is sickly. We requested green beans cooked not al dente but they came very al dente so were not eaten, which the waitress did not query.

    I had another great experience on Friday. Thank you. Shepherds pie was amazing. For me right size but bet others would call it small for the price. Maybe veg should be included in price. Just my point of view. But thank you for great experience.

    Everything was really good apart from the time it took to be served our food. I think this was down to there being a rather large party of customers being served which affected the service given to other customers. However, we had a great time and the staff were excellent.

    Again I was there Sunday with a friend. Wednesday I went on my own. Still great service. I did laugh at one stage as I am not a big eatter so I stop once full. So when waiter came to table to ask if everything was OK. He just look unsure if the food was OK. It was perfect but to much for me. Yet another great experience. Thank you to the team who served me. Back again tomorrow before Voucher run out. Thank you. 😊

    Always a pleasure. It always surprises me that the food is not really any more expensive than the millions of Young pubs in the village, yet both the variety and the quality are in a very different league! The food is always outstanding and the service is great - good old fashioned customer service, with a smile. We will be back!!

    As ever The Ivy Wimbledon has fabulous staff and service, great atmosphere and decor. I am usually a fan of all of the dishes but yesterday the fish goujons were disappointing. Too much slightly greasy batter and barely any fish. My companion however loved the halloumi salad and the gravadlax was delicious.

    Directed to table next to window (which I questioned) and was told it was quiet there, but it was extremely draughty and therefore wasn’t able to relax. The lighting wasn’t very good and I thought the whole area lacked atmosphere . So unfortunate given that I was there to celebrate my son’s birthday . I also felt the chair I was sitting on was too high for the table or the table was too low for the chair. Such a shame given that I have had some good experiences in Ivy Wimbledon

    I booked for a table of 6 for afternoon tea. When we arrived we were told that they no longer did the afternoon tea. This was extremely disappointing as it was advertised on the online menu and we were there for a special occasion As regular users of the Ivy in Wimbledon village we may well decide to look elsewhere for future celebrations. Such a shame as we have always enjoyed our times there.

    This was my first visit to my local ivy Wimbledon village and it didn’t feel as special as other Ivy restaurants. Don’t get me wrong the staff were friendly the food was good. Few things let it down crockery not so spotless. Staff uniforms not quite up to standards. Tea not great quite weak. Presentation of food could be better. This has not put me off I will be visiting again this is just where I feel improvement can be made.
