It is an interesting place to go to, the food is very good but so limited choice on the Special that we had to go 'A la carte' again. Service very good.

Disappointing food. Very small helpings of scallops, very small shepherds pie with no accompanying vegetables,nota true risotto.
Reasonable service but overall poor value for money.

The Food was lovely, but we were on a very small table right by the door and all the waiter staff, was constantly knocked by people whilst eating. Biggest issue was the Service, server was great and polite but took 10 minutes to bring a bottle of water for the table and the food came before our other drinks.

The Ivy is a lovely place to have lunch but the food was very average and certainly not worth the money

This is my third visit to the restaurant and it did not disappoint. I have never seen the brunch menu before but, the choice was varied and reasonable. The portion sizes were generous and the food delightful.

The service was impeccable; every member of staff were extremely helpful and pleasant.

My friend and I were meeting up for the first time in 11 years. I wanted to go to somewhere special. My husband and i have eaten at The Ivy Leeds before and really enjoyed it. This time we had afternoon tea. We enjoyed it but I have had better. The service was good but I asked for a tonic three times and eventually gave in. My latte was on the house as a result. The sandwiches were a bit bland, with very little filling. We had two dessert type dishes. No hot water was provided for the tea. In general I have had better afternoon teas elsewhere but we did have a good time and I will visit again but probably will not have afternoon tea

Lovely restaurant , when we arrived there was quite a few tables in. Service was good but as the tables emptied out, staff went on there breaks and service became sporadic. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to bring our bill from asking, far too long considering it was quiet then. The beetroot bread on our sandwiches was hard and the sandwich didn’t feel freshly made. But other elements of our afternoon tea were very good.

Right from the greeting we received, everything was perfect.
Staff well trained and we were given plenty of time to browse the menu with cocktails before ordering.
Food delicious.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant for evening.

Not impressed with the meal for my husbands birthday. No ambiance, felt like we were eating in a cafeteria on a Saturday evening.
Worse was the food, I had scallops and tuna. I only got 3 scallops (one broken up!) for £12! And the tuna was over cooked and dry, even though it was one of the specials. Will not be returning and have told my friends not to bother either. My husband has been to the Birmingham Ivy and had a much nicer experience. Very very disappointed! £100+ for a meal for two, and very mediocre.

Totally ruined our Saturday evening because of our waiterWe received two £25 gift vouchers as a Xmas present which we presented on paying the bill the waiter went away and insisted there was only one voucher ,as we were in a hurry to get to the theatre I said I would double check when I got home.I rang the ivy back that evening saying we definitely used both vouchers since then I have left countless messages and finally got through to a manager under duress called Reece who promised to ring me Monday I am still waiting the after sales to returning customers is appalling for a company of this stature I truly hope someone in higher management reads this and contacts me yours sincerely Mr Merrick This is a matter of principle as they were a gift from an elderly relative

We were seated and offered drinks ,we then waited 15 minutes for the food order to be taken..then 30 mins for 2 starters one of which was 6 OLIVES £3.95. The main courses took nearly 1 hrs to arrive.2 children's pastas arrived without tomato sauce..2 shepherds pies without ordered side of chips and 1 blackened cod with side of rice. Took 10mins to attract someone and then we had to wait for these items to be delivered..pasta was cold when sauce was delivered..fish had been eaten so rice eaten on it's own.1 shepherds pie eaten and 1 -3/4 eaten by the time the chips arrived..was apologised to and told 2 sides would not be charged. Dessert s were excellent although no children's menu on dessert so they cost over £8 each.

Very pleasant meal. Staff are very professional. My only issue was that I had to go upstairs to the bathroom and it was quite a treck. (I have M.S. but my disability is not visibly apparent and I don’t like to make a fuss about it).

The food and atmosphere was amazing it had a special touch of class, the scones were the best scones I have ever had with the freshes strawberry’s. The only thing I was disappointed with was not having our champagne before our afternoon tea so we could have our tea with the food after we was asked what way round we would like to have it. I didn’t like the type of tea I chose which was nobody’s fault but the staff was happy enough to change it which was great. I would recommend to friends and would give the ivy another try
