    Lovely place, but the service varied from either excruciatingly OTT, to bring completely ignored and forgetting drinks etc. Food promised a lot but was pretty average. Lovely setting tough!

    There for an early bird menu & the food was good. Service was excellent & the ambience is worth the visit. Overall if you want a special night out the Ivy is the one to visit.

    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.

    We met a friend at The Ivy Dawson at her recommendation. We all had different starters and main courses and desserts. We each thought that ours was the best. My beef filet was perfectly cooked. We had been on the road a month, and this was one of the best martinis that I had on the road. Not the wimp size of many British heritage locations and it had floating shards of ice in the drink.....it was perfect!

    The Duck salad starter was very nice but lacked enough Duck - very ungenerous! I also ordered a glass of their Rose, the more expensive one which was terrible. I sent it back and they did not charge me for it. My friend really enjoyed his burger and I really enjoyed the truffle and Parmesan chips.

    This restaurant has an outstanding ambience, if a little loud for any intimate chatting. The menu is more casual and inexpensive than expected but good nevertheless. Our main criticism would be that the waiter kept up selling everything from the wine to trying to get us to order sides with our main courses (fries with shepherd’s pie??). On the positive side, it was Father’s Day on the day we were there for dinner and the restaurant went around the tables with fathers and handed out glasses of wine on the house!

    I order the special - Lamb rump. I was extremely disappointed and mentioned this to the waitress ( a very helpful girl), half my meat was fatty! The waitress said she would mention this to the chef but I didn't receive a response. My daughter had chicken Milanese which was covered in mint leaves! Unfortunately I couldn't recommend The Ivy based on our experience....
