    The includes service tip on the bill automatically which I don’t like it. Let me choose how much tip I prefer to give. My fillet steak was also chewy unfortunately. Other than these this place is still my favourite restaurant in Dublin.

    Three former male colleagues enjoying a regular lunch get together were pleasantly surprised by an excellent table, well distanced from other diners and agreeable, efficient service with good quality...but not outstanding...food. ( Monkfish and prawn curry had way more diced turnip etc than fish!!!) Nonetheless we really enjoyed this outing. Well done.

    We came to Ireland to celebrating a wedding at Waterford Castle. As a goodbye dinner, we came to Dublin before flying home and planned to have a goodbye dinner with some friends. We happened upon the Ivy by pure chance and were not disappointed! The food and drink were superb as was the service! If we ever have the chance to come back to Dublin we will revisit—for sure!

    It was incredible, one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever stepped foot in. The food was also amazing, I had the mushroom and truffle risotto which I really enjoyed. I also ordered the passionate spritz which had passion fruit and that was also amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant and I will be going back. The vibes, food, aesthetics, and waiters were all amazing. The stairs going down to the restroom and the restroom were also decorated very beautifully.

    A lovely venue. Food ok, nothing exceptional. Service falls well short of standard expected. Front of House staff, unfriendly and barely acknowledged at Reception Desk. Delays unacceptable from ordering drinks to serving dishes, sides forgotten, not enough cutlery or glasses on table and difficult to attract staff’s attention to any issues. Service Charge absolutely not deserved.

    Food not good, Steak Tartare had oeices of cooked meat in it, it was inedible. when I made the waiter aware, I was given a poor excuse from the waiter. the dish was still charged on the bill although it was made wrong and I didn't eat it. I contacted the restaurant directly to give them feeback and they never responded.

    Our food and drinks were nice and service from wait staff was good, however overall experience detracted from by other staff trying to rush us from the table, leaving the bill, standing over us waiting to pay. We weren’t informed on arrival that there was a time limit on the table, and as a group of 5 this was disappointing.

    €95 for 2 big meals, (still full 6 hours later) 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of champagne. Good tasting, quality food at a good price. I've paid more for worse and in these times I'm choosing quality over quantity! Beautiful restaurant and fast and friendly service too.

    Lovely decor, beautiful food and good service. Only complaint is the temperature in the restaurant is very cold. I had to eat with a pashmina wrapped around me and a number of other diners ate with their jackets on . Would make me think twice about dining here again and particularly bringing relatives to dine as just too uncomfortable to eat in the cold
