    Lovely server and atmosphere in general . We were having a meal to celebrate my mothers 60th. Manager came to table once to tell us abruptly that our table was only for two hours and we were at it 2 hours and 20. We hadn’t been warned/notified of this and did not know we were overstaying our welcome. At this stage we were just starting a cocktail so our server kindly said we could finish it. The manager then returned another 10 minutes later and very abruptly told us to move. After having a lovely meal and a lovely day celebrating my mothers birthday , this was not a nice way to end it. Surely there are better ways of managing this

    Such a great place to visit; full of life, great atmosphere, love the decor, delightful staff and tasty food. Will definitely return. The two hour window for your meal is adhered to but we were able to take our drinks to the bar so that was fine. Another great afternoon in The Ivy! 👍

    I like the Ivy, the Dublin Ivy. It gets a hard press some times and occasionally brings it on itself but a sa restaurant it's never really disappointed me. My last visit was fot breakfast. There was a warm greeting at the door, The staff are extremely smart. I was shown to my table. Service was old school courteous and my scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and it was perfect. Dublin is expensive foe breakfast and with the complimentary second coffee here the Ivy compares well. Ambience can make a big difference and the two well dressed ladies in a nearby table enjoying a bottle of prosecco with their breakfast crtainly brought an extra bit of joy to the whole thing.

    My friends and I chose the Ivy for a special breakfast, based on its international reputation. We were disappointed. In terms of asethics, the restaurant is well appointed and the breakfast menu offer plenty of choice. What let the experience down however was the staff memeber attending our table. We were left to feel like an inconvenience, not the special experience we had hoped for.

    Excellent all round experience. Shepards pie, fabulous. Superb gravy. Steak tartare. Wonderful. Very heavily spiced with horseradish but I love horseradish so it was lovely. Chocolate bomb was a delight as always, a feast for the eyes and taste. Pleasant, professional staff. We were seated at the front glass window with all the other guests. I'd have preferred a quieter spot in the back but forgot to tell our waitress. It was pleasant despite it all! I'd highly recommend trying it.

    First visit to the ivy so wasn't sure what to expect. First off why do restaurants put everyone together when there are so many other empty tables, the tables are literally an arms length apart. We thoroughly enjoyed the food the chocolate bomb was delicious. I'd definitely recommend they get a duster out from time to time I managed to write a heart in the dust behind my seat.

    Been here many times for dinners. Had breakfast for the first time, loved it. Great portions, not big and not too small. Prices fair, but one small "minus": we asked for extra avocado with our choices. Charged €3.90 each (NB: not on the menu!). Way too much for one avocado than was divided into two portions. Otherwise, happy with the place and will come back again, 100% recommended.
