Waitress decided I needed a vegan meal after just requesting I not have the chicken sandwich with my afternoon tea, the manager eventually tried to correct it but the for the price and reputation of the ivy is was an annoying experience

Wow what a horrible experience, terrible steak, horrible service and just no care. Honestly just worth it for the ambiance.

We had a fantastic time here, food was exceptional as was the service. My cousin is pregnant and it was on a hot day, the staff didn’t hesitate when we asked to move to an outdoor table. Our meals were beautiful, isn’t over priced. Cocktails were lovely. The ambiance and decor is outstanding. Looking forward to coming back again soon

We loved our time and I would normally never complain about service as an ex waitress but the service was poor- the main girl who served us didn’t know what she was doing at all and although she tried it was so awkward and she was very nervous the whole time.

Food was good apart from one of the sides which we had to send back. Service was a mix, we had one great guy and another girl who wasn't great. We had someone with a gluten intolerance and there wasn't much info provided on what she could have

The service was OK however our table was in the sun and we kept having to ask for more water as our glasses sat empty for ages which was annoying. They were also slow asking if we would like any more drinks (cocktails/wine) and no one checked on our food, although the food was very good! . The server was knowledgeable about the menu as I am gluten free and quickly told me what I could have (very limited options on the brunch menu I have to say). Nice brunch out but expect more attentive service from the Ivy.

Food was okay, we ordered food that we wanted but got different. The staff were struggling to understand what we were wanting, overall an okay experience but improvements could be made. Also our booking was for nine o’clock but didn't sit down until a good ten minutes after which was not very good. The restaurant didn’t have many drinks that we requested also which is not okay for a restaurant like this, if you have something on the menu that you offer your customers it should be available all the time no matter what especially when it comes down to drinks.

The Ivy prides itself on the quality of their food and in this rest, they don't disappoint. All of our meals were delicious and we accompanied them with a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a few gin and tonics. The serving staff are excellent; they couldn't do enough for us and we had a great table on the terrace which is nicely shielded from street noise. The greeters were a little grumpy but probably a result of how busy they were.

The food was good but the drinks were horrible, really watered down and didn’t have much flavour - The music was way too loud to have a conversation as you would have to almost shout to hear each other. The men’s restroom was somewhat flooded when my husband went in. Didn’t seem up to hygienic standards and was brought up to the managers attention. Overall the service was good but wouldn’t bother rushing back.

As an anniversary meal we decided to visit the Ivy as last time we went we were made to feel very special, not so much this time. From the check in where we were not greeted as much as grunted at, the loud music feeling the bass through our bench, to our waitress who was obviously new but didn’t even have basic, common courtesy. Food was excellent and we would come back but perhaps not on a Saturday as we were just not made to feel special.

There are a lot of Ivys, but this was one of the nicest interiors and I was favourably impressed by the food - the pancakes were lovely. Quick and efficient service for a large, busy restaurant that you'd have thought would be out of practice post-lockdown. Easy and reliable breakfast/lunch spot in central.

Lovely staff members who were very attentive and polite however the food was awful for somewhere like the Ivy, the burger and the veggie curry was bland and the steak tartare was so overpowered with herbs it was actually quite disgusting. Definitely save your money and dine elsewhere, where you can get better value for your money. Also it was so loud we could barely converse around the table

We had ordered Alcoholic and nonalcoholic cocktails, we had pregnant friends on the table and the alcoholic drinks were given to them, we had friends who didn't drink and the same happened to them.

Super upset with the service.
