Very crowded with a very beige and standard menu.
Nothing special about the restaurant…definitely a standard chain.

My monkfish and prawn curry had one piece of monkfish and two prawns and way too much sweet potato, I would have normally said something but I had already sent back my prawn cocktail starter as it had a hair in it.
Staff were absolutely brilliant best service Iv experienced in a long time!

The service was second to none. Bit disappointed there wasn’t more vegan choice & the vegan & vegetarian was on the same menu which was misleading. The food was delicious & very well presented. Will definitely be back.

It was a lovely experience my only criticism would be there are no baby changing facilities.
However the food and service was first class.

What an exceptional restaurant! I took my mum here who is a great cook and highly critical but it surpassed even her standards! From the highly friendly, attentive and professional staff to the beautiful surroundings, designed to a tee, relaxed and vibrant ambience, stunning cocktails, delicious wine and absolutely deliciously exquisite food, I cannot praise this place enough! It was literally like stepping into heaven for a few hours and at a very decent price too! Amazing and would definitely return!

My wife and I had a brief visit to Clifton and thought it would be a wonderful choice to eat at The Ivy and we were not disappointed. From the moment of walking in to leaving everything was wonderful. The food was spectacular, highly recommend the soufflé and the shepherds pie, my wife had squid followed by monkfish.
Really pleasantly surprised by the cost of the food superb value for money. We would love to go again if we are ever in the area

We had an excellent lunch at The Ivy on Wednesday.
It was pleasantly cool in the dining area which was a real bonus given the heatwave weather.
Service was excellent, very thorough and staff were friendly.
Nice choice of food on the menu and we enjoyed all our chosen dishes.
We look forward to returning again soon!

Champagne Afternoon Tea was superb, food delightful and the service was excellent. The only thing that let it down was that the air conditioning wasn't suffient for the time of year. It was hot in there!

My only complaint is the staff (who were fabulous) only get a miserly 59p an hour of the 12.5% service charge! Which in our case as a table of 6 was £57. Shocking, in future we will refuse to pay this and give it to the staff direct.
