    Loved the general vibe of the restaurant when we walked in, food had a twist on ordinary dishes and very flavoursome. Service was very attentive when required. Three things impacted my enjoyment - the noise, the position of our table and the temperature. It was my daughter’s 18th family dinner for 5 of us and felt we had been given the worst table available in the restaurant although had booked well in advance and advised about the occasion. We were simply ‘plonked’ in the middle of the open area on the right, I couldn’t relax as felt we were on show, it was freezing cold (under air conditioning unit) and although it was not a large table I couldn’t hear the conversation unless we awkwardly put our heads together! There were no soft furnishings around us to absorb the noise. Would only return if we were guaranteed a booth or secluded area, of which there are many.

    I was not informed the reservation was outside until I arrived; I would not have booked had I known that and the weather forecast. The lady at the front desk was rude when I inquired about moving inside and in general was unpleasant. Food was amazing - I had the blackened cod. The fish was a great portion - it would have been nice to have a grain with it. Service was good - they were definitely trying to keep up and were very pleasant.

    I just want to thank a very observant worker, a Hispanic or Latino female floor manager or worker, who spotted the baby knocking over my companions coffee and without even us noticing that she was aware as we cleaned up. She came back with a cloth, helped mop up and then organised a free coffee to replace the spill. All very understated, no drama, just a big smile and attention to detail -and to the customers. Thanks a mil. Jim FitzPatrick. Judy Connolly. Baby Lily Rose.

It was to celebrate my daughters upcoming wedding in a few wks and What an experience we had. It did not disappoint! Food was just amazing served to us by Tonka a very friendly attentive server. We will definitely return. It's well worth a visit.

    I visited The Ivy with my friend to celebrate her birthday. Overall, it was a great experience. The food was some of the best I've eaten and the service couldn't have been better. I had a chichen salad for main and shared the chocolate bomb for dessert. Both were outstanding. However, I felt the drinks and sides were a little overpriced and I was very disappointed with quite a steep service charge at the end of the bill. Despite this, I will definitely be returning for another special occasion!

    Brought my sister to your beautiful restaurant as a treat. Her husband died recently and she needed a little lift, if only for the time we had our meal. She had never been to The Ivy and was very impressed with its beautiful decor. Our food was delicious and the young waiter was very efficient helpful and friendly. I’ve been to The Ivy twice before and have always had an excellent meal and very enjoyable experience in this delightful restaurant.

    Such a lovely treat we had yesterday. Delicious food, so delicious, the vegetarian menu is superb, dessert soooooo good, the chocolate bomb is a must. To share, because my god its sweet. Loved it all. Thanks so much. Its expensive for lunch, but worth it because the taste and portion match the price. You are paying for top notch everything. So worth it. But for me, a treat day out.

    Food was slow coming and 2 dishes were very overdone. We sent one back because it was so bad but then it took ages to get a replacement, everyone was finished eating by the time that person started their food. Our waitress was very nice and took that item off our bill. Generally the place was very busy and the decor is lovely.
