We dined as a festive treat and although there was no Christmas menu the food was delicious. We both thought that there could have been more vegetables served with the meal rather than ordering them as a side.

I am beginning to be a little disappointed with the Ivy group.Suddenly many of our High Streets have an Ivy . We were excited and applauded loudly at this new arrival. But now boredom has set in. Staff turnover seems to be on the high side . The menu hardly changes.Noise levels can be high due to a combination of design issues and too many tables.Management never seems to be tight enough .
There is a rumour that most of the food is prepared off site and only heated ( if necessary) on site.Sometimes the preparation is not as good as it should be for the prices charged .
However, an Ivy on your High Street is an advantage and invariably is a better experience when compared against other “chains”.
Don’t be put off going but the ambience and decor are often more appealing than the food and drink . An Ivy is not a gourmet
experience . The wrapper is good but sometimes the content leaves much to be desired.

I’ve been here several times and always have a wonderful experience.
The only thing that let it down this time is that they forgot my mother in laws tea. ( and that’s just me being picky)
I love it here for breakfast,lunch and afternoon tea.

We were sat in the corner of the room where there was no light. We told the waitress this and was told to use our mobile phones. Very bad service, was a Birthday meal and we were very disappointed, as it is expensive restaurant therefore we expect good service and this did not happen.

Had wanted to try the ivy but after trying many other restaurants that offer steak I would say the ivy is very bland , peppercorn had no flavour , steak soft but nothing more to it and chips possibly over cooked so wouldn’t return

It was our first visit to Cobham brasserie and we were pleasantly surprised by how vibey the restaurant was. It has great décor, lively atmosphere without the sense of it being stuffy at all. We had the afternoon tea which for £26 (champagne version) is probably not that expensive. The sweet part was actually quite good, scones were warm and yummy and the other pastries were also enjoyable. Bit stingy with the jam but they were happy to refill upon request so all good. We weren't overly enamoured with the savoury part which I actually think I could have been a bit more creative and interesting whilst still sticking to tradition. We were given one finger of cucumber sandwich, one finger of salmon on a brown rye bread (I think) and a small chicken & truffle brioche. We requested one more finger of cucumber and one more brioche and nearly fell off our seats when we saw we'd been charged £7 for the refill. Not sure how they get away with charging £7 for a sliver of white bread with cucumber and a small chicken brioche. Typically, refills are not added to the bill so it was a double-shock. Despite this, we did have an overall enjoyable experience. It's a lovely brasserie with friendly and excellent service and we will defo go back to try the menu as the food looked good.

I have been to the Ivy quite a few times in the past year but after having a meal there on friday night I wouldn’t rush back. No sooner as we were given the menus the lights went so low we couldn’t read the menu and everyone had to use the torch on their phones to be able to see.
The service was so slow, it took at least half an hour to clear plates after we had finished eating and a few drinks that were ordered never showed up!
It was very loud, we struggled to have conversation and as the noise got louder people were literally shouting at one another to the point it was unbearable.
It was not a great evening but an expensive one, which I feel was not worth the money.

A noisy busy restaurant with a very small car-park. My portion of "The Ivy Shepherds Pie" was extremely small & was very over-priced and the meat was nothing special at all.. Our friend asked for a burger without cheese but it arrived with cheese and had to be replaced. My side order of broccolli arrived quite a bit earlier than my main course and had to be returned to be heated. We had eaten here before but are reluctant to return as it no longer offers value for money. A huge disappointment.

Really poor service. So slow. Apologetic staff but they were not truthful about what had happened to our order. (It’s being played up now...... and then we waited 30 minutes more for it to arrive).
Eggs were cold on one dish. Plates were cold. Toast was served too early ahead of the food, so it was cold by the time the plated up food arrived. Not enough space on the round table for all items (clear the used coffee cups quicker would have helped). The restaurant was busy but not full. Plenty of staff around. Lovely setting and atmosphere. We were there for brunch as everyone was short on time - it took 1 hour 40 to get served. Too slow.
Sorry - really disappointing. We did appreciate the discounted bill. Thank you .

We enjoyed our evening as a preChristmas get together. My main complaint is that there were six in our party and we had ordered expensive pink champagne, and good quality wines. Every time our waitress filled the glasses, there was only a dribble left after she had served five, and she held up the bottle saying " Would you like another one?" Is this part of the training for staff at The Ivy to sell more wine?

As soon as we walked in a lovely buzzing atmosphere but not too noisy,attentive staff, perfect table we could watch what was going on including the barmans cocktail mixing skills. Sophisticated decor, liked the series of rooms. Although near the entrance no drafts the entry layout cleverly negated that problem. Glad to see house wine not too expensive.

We had a lovely time at the Ivy Brasserie. The service could have been slightly more attentive, recognising when we were out of drinks by asking us if we wanted more but it was unusually busy for a Monday and the waitress was doing a great job not letting it show.

The food was really tasty and the atmosphere intimate but with a buzz.

Very bad value for money, small and then having to purchase extra vegetables. This is the second time this has happened to me at an Ivy ... if this is going to be the trend I’ll be moving my custom on. Sorry and a shame, love the concept but food is what you go for!!!
