    We booked the Ivy in St Albans with Open Table for an early dinner before a show. We got the table by the window we requested. All the members of staff were very pleasant and professional. We ordered fish cakes, fries and the delicious apple tart. Everything was great (apart from the prices which we think are a bit too high - like £10 for the apple tart!) Thank you very much.

    We use the Windsor Ivy regularly and have used the Manchester and Bristol (Clifton) a bit. This is the most cramped Ivy we’ve been to, a bit squeezed, but same VG standards of service. The lady who looked after us (grey suit) was excellent. Food consistent, but one comment: we used to go the Ivy London a long time ago when the Corbyn/King ownership achieved 5 star everything. The frozen berries and hot white chocolate sauce dish needs revision: the fruit needs a little defrosting before serving, and there needs to be enough sauce to COVER the berries, like it used to on the original version. Other than that, all good.

    Everything was great, but the waitress felt like she was rushing us. We hadn't even finished our Starters and withing about 10mins she came to ask us if we are ready for our main meal seeing we had food on the table still. She slowed down after but it was still rushed Clearing wanted ate and out as soon as possible for the next people, that's not pleasant tbh

    I wanted a birthday breakfast and the Ivy vegetarian breakfast was amazing, extremely filling with very healthy choices, and I had the 1917 breakfast blend tea, which was also superb. The member of staff serving us was so passionate about the Ivy brand and and was friendly enough to let us have a look around as my friend had never been before. She was also extremely helpful with the menu choices and I am so glad she got us to download the app as I can start gaining points now.

    4 of us had a booking at 6.30pm. 2 of us turned up early (6pm) and were asked if we wanted to go the bar or the table. When we said table we were told our “2 hour time slot” would start from sitting down. Absolute madness given our guests would arrive 30 minutes later. When will businesses realise that by turning up early (on a non busy evening) their revenue will increase. If it was my business I would want people to have a pre dinner drink at my business rather than the wine bar down the road. And this was from the hostess whose job it is is to “welcome” people. She failed terribly! The service didn’t get much better thereafter and the food was ok - but not great.

    Disappointed with the Ivy this visit for my son's birthday. We were stuffed in a corner table with very little room, when there was another larger table for 4 available for most of our visit, and given to a couple towards the end of a visit. Why the worst tables are given out first seems a bad policy - I had assumed the other table was booked maybe for 30 minutes after ours and so was not available. I don't think that table should even be used for 4 people. The waiter knocked my champagne over - all over my husband's trousers and shirt - something likely to happen given to serve my daughter he had to lean across me as her seat was right in the corner so the waiter could not get next to her. Would have expected either the service charge to be waived or the champagne given free as a gesture of goodwill but nothing was offered. My husband and son were also disappointed that there was no filet steak on the menu anymore, which is their favourite. One portion of chips was missed on our order, and my daughter was given bacon on her burger which she had not asked for. Having previously enjoyed the Ivy and felt it has a special atmosphere, but disappointed this time and will try somewhere else for our next special occasion.

    We didn’t go for the set menu which is very good value because we liked the look of the a la carte menu and it was well worth the extra. The goats cheese soufflé was delicious and the sea bream perfectly cooked with crispy skin and moist fish -an excellent experience all round!

    We dined here for our 35th wedding anniversary and we had a lovely evening. The decor and atmosphere is quite special, as was the food, drink and attentive service.

    Wife's birthday. Very good food, despite the fact that she is very fussy, and good atmosphere as usual. Service a little slow at times. But a nice leisurely pace generally. Would definitely recommend if not in a tearing hurry.

    The standard of the food was extremely poor, both my scallops and my husbands steak were completely over cooked. The standard has really dropped.

    The staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Nothing was too much effort. Very personable and made the visit from start to finish pleasurable, really appreciated the attention to detail- the waiter had clearly read the booking reservation I had noted the occasion was my mums birthday not only did they take the time to wish her a very Happy Birthday, they very thoughtfully brought out a high profiterole with a candle. Thank you for making the visit so memorable x

    Love this place. Have had good meals here repeatedly. Nice meal overall lunchtime today from the special Spring menu however couple of things - starter salt and pepper squid was chewy, blackened cod was overcooked and sirloin steak was also chewy. Crème brûlée was brilliant
