Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our meal. When booking I mentioned it was our 40th bdays but they acknowledged it with birthday eclairs which was just a lovely gesture. Will defo be back.

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend dinner at the Ivy.
Super service, nice vegetarian options and the bill was actually less than I expected.

Beautiful food, perfect service. We had a slight problem with my husbands steak not being cooked as requested. They replaced both our meals (so I wouldn’t have to eat alone) and gave us two free glasses of wine each as an apology. Staff couldn’t have been nicer or more professional. We will definitely be back!

The food was cold. Especially the beans which was very disappointing. The service was very good but was let down by the food.

Not as expected. Felt over priced and can’t work out the attraction of this place
Food was nothing special
Menu didn’t give full details of what you were ordering and wine list didn’t describe the wines
Would I visit again?probably not

Disappointing food. Scolops over cooked. Cottage pie poor. Big chunks of mince not properly prepared. Broccoli really tuff. It was my sons 21st and didn’t want to cause a row. Would not come again. Very overpriced

I visited The Ivy temple row on 23/07/21 and my experience was fantastic. Excellent customer service, the managers are always circulating the floor to ensure every table has what they need and is happy. The food was so delicious and presented beautifully. As we were leaving my mum accidentally left her shopping bag in the restaurant and we were halfway down the road when the manager ran after us with the bag and said that we forgot it! We were so amazed! My mum didn’t even realise the bag wasn’t with her and we were so impressed that he took the time and initiative to get the bag to us. Absolutely brilliant service! Couldn’t have imagined a better restaurant to have my birthday meal at!

The Restaurant is very pleasant but We did not realise there is a second room upstairs .This is where We was seated, although a very nice table if we visit again We will enquire about a table downstairs. We will definitely return and hopefully soon for an afternoon Tea.

I can honestly say I’ve been to the Ivy a few time and I booked this in the moment as my fiancé just bought a house and this is her favourite place to go. However on this occasion it did not go to plan. We had a few starters which were great bought a bottle of wine and a couple of cocktails to celebrate.

We then moved on to the mains and the fish and chips came out which was burnt and crispy and unacceptable. We got this changed to another fish and chips however all my fiancé could taste was the burnt foot from the previous meal.

The waiter said I thought it looked a bit burnt when I bought it to your table “Then why would you bring it”

Really disappointing. He said he would move it from the bill. Well even if he didn’t we would never of paid for that anyway. And the worst thing is the Ivy added service charge on to the bill.

Really disappointed in this celebration meal and I will be putting this on trip advisor too.

Lovely setting, great service, afternoon tea was amazing, perhaps less cake and more savoury would have have suited me but it was all beautifully presented and tasted delightful.
