    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.

    Food was very nice. Service was very disappointing. Waiter had a terrible attitude towards our table, and was complete distracted. Spilt a full glass of wine onto our table, destroying one of our parties outfits, and into two of our handbags (mine was a cream linen bag, permanently destroyed). No apology, absolutely none.

    Very friendly and helpful staff! Nothing was a problem. Broccoli was undercooked. Had to ask for a steak knife. Wasn't Al dente. Sorted out quickly. Fish was very tasty but over-cooked, crumbled. Hard to pick up the pieces. The white chocolate cheescake was amazing! So memorable. Accompanied by a zesty mango sorbet. It was exquisite!! Will definitely be back...because of the amazing service.

    Very nice restaurant to celebrate a special occasion . Food excellent , service very good . The monkfish curry was a hit at our table (best curry ever). The chocolate bombe dessert is a must. Nice selection of cocktails for the people who don’t drink wine. The service is very good( one little hiccup, but nothing major).Overall a great experience and I cannot wait to visit again.

    Very disappointing Poor value. Was given a glass with a lipstick smudge . Waiter rude we were - asked to leave the table when we were still finishing our drinks. This happened twice. We were not told that the seat had to be vacated at a certain time when we made the reservation. Would not recommend. Will not return.

    Food was dreadful. I had the hamburger & it was nothing special - bang average with pickle and fries etc and the meat was really dry & overdone. My friend had the chocolate bomb which turned to mush when the sauce was poured. Wildly overpriced for a very average meal in an overcrowded restaurant with all the tables squashed together. Only high points were the staff (lovely) and the decor.

    Ambience of the Ivy is excellent. I was in Richmond London last week and ate there 3 times in one day for different meetings! I was allowed the excellent duck salad at the bar in London, but refused in Dublin to eat at the bar? Our Dublin Ivy can be a bit more flexible perhaps? Attention behind the bar, maybe in need of a few more attentive Bar men: the attention seems to go on serving the tables not the people at the bar? All in all a good experience at the IVY

    Sunny afternoon and as sitting beside the window it got extremely warm. Blinds needed for peak summer to shade customers from the sun. Also we wanted a relaxing late lunch but a person in the group beside us was unbearably loud !! Staff attentive , good service & food very good.
