    Not our first visit to an Ivy, but a somewhat disappointing one on this occasion. Whilst our waitress was fabulous, both the fillet and rib eye steak on the menu were unavailable which was a shame. The two scallop starters that were served had to be returned to the kitchen as they were lukewarm and one of the medium rare sirloin steaks was very over cooked (more well done) and looked more like a minute steak than a sirloin. The staff did deal with these issues very well and also heavily discounted our final bill. Sadly this was our friends’ first ever experience of an Ivy restaurant and they were underwhelmed. The kitchen needs to do a little better I’m afraid. However both dishes I ordered were delicious so I would still recommend the restaurant.

    Very good food, Ethan our server was very attentive and friendly. Only issue was the bucket containing our champagne was stored away from our table by our original server, Ethan then brought it to our table, which was much better.

    I live in London and know the Ivy chain well. I was visiting York this weekend and looking forward to a family meal out in York at the Ivy. My vegan Burger came with a large hair inside it, not was it on top of but actually inside the burger. I was awful !! I sent it back and my replacement had still not come long after my mother and son had finished their main. I said to leave it as now I was past wanting anything to eat here. The service was terribly slow. It took ages for the manager to come speak to me , and this was after I had to request to speak to him. I would say this Ivy need some serious work to improve its quality of food and service- not what I have come to expect of the chain !

    Excellent service and ambience. Fair value for money As a regular London Ivy goer my dessert which is my all time favourite .. iced berries .. or Scandinavian iced berries as they used to be called was not the usual offering as there was no hot white chocolate vanilla sauce … so I was left disappointed 🙁

    Arrived 40 minutes early but given table straight away. Had our starters which were absolutely fantastic. We then asked for a break and ordered main an hour later while chatting and drinking in between then another hour break before dessert. Wonderful friendly and attentive staff. I couldn’t say anything negative about the whole experience and quality of food
