Great experience at the Ivy city Garden, friendly greeting and throughout our evening. Food was amazing for choice and flavour, came quick and they knew who was having what dish, such lovely service. A really generous free birthday dessert which added a lovely touch to our birthday meal! Thank you!

Great food. Fantastic staff. Main restaurant was packed (which is excellent!)... but slightly noisy if you're a bit deaf, like me! We asked for a seat in the 'garden' (conservatory) area, which has a really relaxing atmosphere and which is quieter -- had a really lovely late, long lunch. = now my favourite place to eat in The City!

My first visit - exceptional experience. I was entertaining my adult granddaughter to decide whether we would use The Ivy for lunch with my other adult grandchildren . No doubt about it - the table is booked. The menu range is exceptional and the quality very good. I dropped it one star because my chips and the fish coating was not crisp enough. Otherwise. overall a great choice.

The food was great, but as we were the last booking they really made us feel very unwelcome and we’re trying to get rid of us as soon as possible. Before we had even finished our starters we were told we needed to order dessert as they were closing. We were 15 mins early for our booking and this still happened, really souring what was some good food!

Unfortunately the staff is not very nice, which is in a strong contrast with the beauty of the place itself

Myself and best friend went for a birthday meal and we had the BEST time. Admittedly we got wine drunk but the staff and food were amazing. Our waiter (didn’t catch his name- Tall, Blonde, Latvian) was super attentive and fun. We will definitely be back and hopefully more sober.. or not!

We were very excited but a little disappointed with the food. We all had a great and then average dish. I don’t normally complain but given the price we did let them know where we felt it was lacking…. They couldn’t of tried any harder to turn it around. Was offered new meals but we were all so full. They took a bottle of wine, two puddings off and cocktails that my daughter drank. Would def go back as this has never happened before as we love The Ivy group.

The venue is very conveniently close to Liverpool Station which makes it an ideal meeting place for people coming from different areas.

The layout serves social distancing needs well.

My truffled wild mushrooms were stunning.

Our waiter, Mihai, was superb: courteous, knowledgeable and helpful at every stage of our meal. He is a credit to the organisation.

I visited this restaurant yesterday with three friends who I hadn't been able to meet for two years. We had a lovely lunch. The food was good and the service excellent. Also, convenient location. less than 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street station. Would definitely visit again.

Attractive environment, excellent food and wine, and very good service- all you'd expect from The Ivy. Vibrant atmosphere was a little loud for a three way conversation at times but overall a first class expereince.

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the Ivy, City Garden. The ambience, the eclectic vibe oozed charm. A brilliant hidden gem, the food was perfect, the quantities just right and the dessert was out of this world. Thank you for the memorable experience.

Celebrating my friend’s 50th birthday with an afternoon tea. The food was beautifully presented and had an Alice in Wonderland theme. My friend was presented with her own cake with a lit candle and Happy Birthday chocolate cake in the middle of the tea which made it extra special. The staff could not have been more helpful. Will be going again.

It was my Birthday our table was for 6 guests there was 7 and they kindly added a chair. We stayed at the table from 1-6pm they did not rush us or make us move until the dinner guests arrived. We then went to the bar in the garden. Daniel was making us cocktails and was a great barman. We all had a fabulous day Sacha

Food v nice - lovely restaraunt. Service rather over attentive. Conversation was interrupted every 10 minutes by the waiting staff . Was unnecessary and resulted in us feeling a little hurried …

The food was good as always but the staff did not seem very happy and wasn’t very welcoming. We were also asked to leave as they needed the table but this was not made clear in the booking and felt a bit rude

Not the best ambiance as the restaurant has high noise levels.Great attentive waiters,but a rather less enthusiastic waitress.Am a fan of the franchise,the food is dependable would eat here again were it not for the difficulty in holding a conversation.
