    Food was okay given the cost. Unfortunately we had a mix up with our orders and subpar service. Would have expected slightly better however it was a nice place to visit.

    My experience at the restaurant was excellent, however the booking system would only let me book for 6.15 when I had requested 6pm. On my early arrival the table was ready, so why was the booking system being so picky?

    A really interesting menu with plenty to choose from and lots of options feature truffle shavings! Love the look of the place and all of the plants. Some of the food didn't taste as impressive as I'd expected, such as the arancini balls (a bit dry and bland) and the truffle foam that comes with the scallops (again, bland). Be careful if they offer to upgrade the scallop starter into a main because it will cost a whopping £27 with no warning! But overall a good experience.

    Requested a nice table as celebrating a special occasion. Was initially placed on a two seater table for 3 people. Requested to move and was seated at a better table. Waited 30 minutes for our drinks and then another 20 minutes to order.

    We waited over 20 mins for our first round of drinks, they then came out wrong. We was sat with finished plates for another 30 mins before the mains came out. The service was extremely slow and the food was a massive let down. Very very disappointing as it was supposed to be a nice meal out for an anniversary.

    Excellent service from the waiting staff. Half of our party were running late but we were never rushed. Staff were trained very well and were not missing a beat in that that restaurant, hence were extremely attentive to the needs of all diners that evening. Food was great, its the Ivy, they are consistent at what they do. Couldn't fault it.

    The service was a bit slow-had to wait a while for our drinks. My dinner companions enjoyed their food, but my salmon main course was like warm and having eaten a bit of it, I felt ill and had to leave the restaurant. I can only surmise that the salmon had been sitting around for a while as it didn’t taste great at all. It was a real shame as we were there for my daughter’s birthday.
