    I ordered the 'special' of the day (as did one of my guests) which was loin of venison, on a bed of red cabbage, for £29.50 each. It would be hard to imagine a smaller dish than that which was presented. I'm surprised the chef didn't shrink with embarrassment upon these being allowed to leave the kitchen. Appalling value for money on this occasion.

    Always a lovely atmosphere and good well valued food. The food this time was not as good as previous visits. Also we were seating in the middle of the room upstairs it was really tight and restricted. A table on the outside of the room or downstairs would have been a lot better and made the experience more enjoyable.

We will always try and accommodate request with regards to tables. so please always let a member of staff aware so that we can move you to a preferred location within the restaurant.

    I appreciate it was an NYE package & the restaurant was going to be busy, but the service was chaotic, waited 30 mins till we sat at our table for booking time. Service was extremely delayed from orders being taken to food being served. Again I know it was busy due to being an nye however if you are going to take a booking then ensure you have enough staff cover on the night. Servers running around like headless chicken due to the demand. Food was ok & nothing exceptional but due to the long wait between courses when the food had arrived it just didn’t hit the spot. In general a nice menu was on offer for the price but the service was poor

    Service was extremely poor, waited for over 1.5 hours, waiters forgot that we even came. The food was very mediocre, the only decent dish was the roasted butternut squash soup. The salmon was overcooked, the roasted beans were undercooked and the Creme brûlée just tasted like a normal custard. The champagne was dodgy.

    After a few disappointing experiences at a Ivy Brighton, I am so glad I visited Birmingham on New Year’s Eve. Amazing service, that couldn’t do enough, so hospitable. Exceptional attention to detail and would love to focus on the lady that served us. Exceptional (so sorry I didn’t catch your name). Didn’t feel at all rushed, food exceptional and great value. So stuffed that dessert was an effort. Thank you for giving me back The Ivy experience I am used to. Flawless

    The blackened cod as a main course dish was disappointing and not cooked in the same way as I have had previously at the Ivy . It was also disappointing that the minute steak was not included as it had apparently been removed from the festive menu.

    Anniversary meal booked weeks ago & we were seated in an empty cold room at the top of the restaurant building . Two other couples eventually arrived & the heating was put on . The service by the sole waitress was excellent & the food was very good as always. But no atmosphere we heard all the laughter & chatter from the restaurant downstairs & watched people use the toilets as the door to our room was open onto the facilities. Very disappointed as this was a planned celebration we felt like walk ins put in the only available spot.

    Disappointed visit. We looked for a Christmas evening meal with our friends travelling from Devon. Service for drinks was very slow. Meals came out at all different times and two of us had finished, before the other two meals came out. When they did the fillet steaks they where under cooked and cold inside. Sent them back to receive the complete opposite over cooked, hard and black when they came back out. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne, whilst we waited for the meals to be rectified. Only to find we were charged for them when the bill came. Shame as we have always rated The Ivy. We won’t be returning any time soon.
