    It was a very nice experience dining at the ivy, the food was excellent and was the service, Megan was an excellent waitress very helpful and down to earth, my only complaint was there wasn't much of a selection of bottled lagar, the 2 bottles I tried were not very nice, should have some Peroni which isn't such a harsh lager.

    The starter of Zucchini Frittie - ie crispy courgette fries, was very disappointing. Courgettes were so thin that they were unidentifiable as courgettes. The rest of the meal was good. Wine expensive. Service and ambience good.

    3rd time at the Ivy. Gone down hill in my opinion. Struggled to find wiw factor, foid and service you are paying for. Our server didn't introduce herself by name. Although we were asked at the front door if we were celebrating something special this was not communicated back to the server.

    Lovely day booked exciting menu. Paid £32 for my steak and was very disappointed. No flavour not seasoned at all and on the rare side rather than well done like I asked. Did explain to the resturant but did nothing about it. Disappointed as spent over £125 on Sunday lunch

    This was our 2nd visit to the to the Ivy, overall ok I chose the Soul for main course which was full of bones and as the menu was so small to read and wearing contact lenses in at the time I could not read full description, shame waiter could not advise or describe how it is served and with the option of having it filleted at the time of ordering, so me and my wife ate at different times. I was offered a different dish after the meals were served which I did except and meal was fair being the blacked Cod. Overall 6/10 SCORE on the night.

    Our first visit to the Ivy Cardiff, and we weren't disappointed. We turned up 15 mins early for our 8pm booking, but were showed straight to our table. The staff were very attentive, without being annoying, they were friendly and professional. The food was lovely, we don't normally have desserts, but went for the creme brulee, which was a real treat. We felt safe as tables were left empty to the sides of us, but this didn't dampen the atmosphere. We really enjoyed the evening, so much so we have booked again for August.

    We were in for lunch yesterday and without a doubt probably the best fish and chips I've ever had in a restaurant. The cocktails are so good,try the candyfloss fizz. The whole place from the decor to the staff are impeccable. We have already booked again for early September, the earliest we could get a reservation for the right time and party size. A great testament to the popularity of the restaurant.

    Confusing when booking, I rang to check if we could just have drinks at the counter at 9pm. To be told on arrival the counter bar was shut, and we would need to get food. They were flexible and let us just have a drink and sat out side.

    We went for lunch after being given a voucher as a gift. Had to scan the track & trace QR as soon as we walked in as well as a temperature check. Waiter was lovely and food delicious plus we had a free dessert as it was a belated anniversary celebration. The drinks were good too. All a little pricey but well worth the experience in beautiful surroundings.
