    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!

    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.

    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

    Service was excellent. The quality (and quantity) of food was not great. Choice on the standard lunch menu was very limited. The noise level rose to the point where it was difficult to communicate with one another. Drinks were crazy prices- €11 for one glass of wine! Although quoted €24 for 2-course lunch, the bill for five came to €200. This was definitely 'over the top'.

    Where do I start, inexperienced staff, some staff wearing dirty aprons. A girl sweeping up with blue gloves on, which would be more likely to see in a staff canteen.. the table for 4 was to small. My mother asked for a latte spoon for the latte glass cup & was given a table spoon. I could really go on & on. The first thing my wife did upon leaving was ring her brother & tell him to cancel his booking which is in December. We would have had a better meal in Rubys. The Ivy is nothing to write home about & falls way below expectations that it is supposed to have. I'm sorry for the bad feedback. €400 disgraceful. We are in Glover Alley in the 16/08/22 the bill was €325 & worth every cent.

    Very disappointed with the service , food came quick enough and was ok. Waited ages to get a drinks order when we asked where our drinks where one waiter in particular said he would check and never came back had to ask another waiter ten mins later to check what was happening no waiter came to ask how everything was .The manager did come and apologise about the situation. We proceeded to order desserts and 40 mins later we asked where the desserts might be . We cancelled the desserts and left the manager did explain that the computer systems where not working properly and that’s was was causing the delays and apologised again .

    I am very disappointed . I book a table for brunch it was my friends birthday which I did write on the booking and when we arrived I told the server she said she had note of it . Everyone around us got the cupcakes . We were getting very excited we ordered dessert and coffee. dessert was brought out but no cupcake. And waited nothing. This was to be a surprise she didn’t know . It was a special birthday as she was turning 50 years old . The food was very good but this just put a damper on everything. I was very upset and annoyed it would of been different if I just asked when I came through the door but I sent a message. That’s what annoyed me . I have eaten here before and thought this would be a lovely Birthday treat. Ended up stopping in a little shop and buying a cake and candle 😢. Very disappointed.
