    We ended up leaving as the table outside was squashed into a corner, there was no protection from the wind and no heating. You would expect a restaraunt of that calibre to have invested in a better outside area. We ended up spending 300+ in another restaraunt and I would have felt very umcomfortable spending that kind of money while practically on the street, It didnt feel like we we would have been having dinner in the ivy.

    Got a great table and our waitress was very nice. The decor is fab and love the whole ambiance of the place. The food was lovely… didn’t blow up away but very nice. Enjoyed the experience going here and would definitely go back to try other things on the menu. As it was friend’s birthday, it was a nice touch of bring down small cake each with candle for the birthdays. Would recommend to friends to go here.

    The food was lovely but the service wasn’t great. Not so much from the nice waiter, who I think was Spanish or Italian and was very nice and doing his best, but from the Irish guy who I found somewhat rude when I approached him upon arrival outside at the waiters station and said I had a reservation. He was quite dismissive when telling me to go inside to find my table. Which was maybe fair enough but he wasn’t very friendly at all. What I really found off putting was when I returned to the waiters station to ask for something I’d requested a number of times he was loudly berating the waiter for not prioritising the hot dishes. Obviously getting hot dishes out is a priority but it was very poor management to do so in such a loud manner in front of customers- not just myself who had approached the desk but the table beside the desk could hear everything and I think it was probably humiliating for the waiter to be instructed in such a manner. It left a bad taste in my mouth to be honest and I think the manager should have some training in how to manage his team.

    Very poor service & rude staff. After we were seated outdoors on a wet table exposed too rain we asked for an umbrella to be raised & once we asked we were questioned by 2 separate staff on 3 occasions in less than 5mins whether we had a reservation (we did & they seated us). The staff were clearly bothered by a very simple request & made it clear. After moving us too a new table because the umbrella was broke we decided to leave the restaurant. That incident aside in the 25mins we were there not one waiter came to our table.

    Lunch was excellent....my husband loves 'fish & chips' but only in a restaurant and The Ivy's was delicious. My Kerala fish curry was the best.....creamy, tasty, and great prawns and monkfish. Our only slight down was the coffee...two Americanos' ..very bitter! Love the Ivy and we will be back. Thank you

    The standard of food does not meet the price point. We’ve had much better meals at cheaper places in Dublin. The service was efficient and staff were friendly and polite. This experience has put me off attending The Ivy at its other locations.
