Good food and great staff. Fairly noisy but wouldn’t put us off visiting again.

It’s a very cute place, hidden away from the high street. Once you walk in, you are treated very well. It was a special occasion, a birthday treat so the lady at the front just checked with us. She showed us to our table and was very friendly and inviting. BUT the waiter who attended us was terrible. Not sure whether he thought it was banter but he came across very rude and put an uncomfortable tinge on the morning. We were waiting for someone but when we decided to order and approached him he said we’d have to wait 20 minutes as we’d taken ages to order in first place. He was not nice. Then another kind waiter surprised the birthday girl with a little cake which was a lovely unexpected surprise. The horrible waiter then came over and just kept looking and then asked if the birthday girl had eaten the candle as it wasn’t on table???!!!??? I mean really???!!!?!

The relationship between price and quality was, as always, excellent. I think you are very effectively hitting the target of quality food ant a price which is reasonable for you and for us, the customers.

Food, very good. Wine, excellent. Service was very efficient and they never made us feel like we needed to hurry up and leave.

Very enjoyable experience.....again!

Excellent food with a friendly welcome. One improvement would be having more time in between courses. I felt quite rushed to order a dessert straight after my main.

Ivy is always a good place to be. The food quality changes however, even when you visit the same Ivy. this time it was a bit disappointing. Also it would be nice if the vegetarian dishes are more creative that the usual butter squash. Still a good place to be.

Service was amazing, and was lovely ambiance inside. I had the veg breakfast which was great, but toast was cold and they apologised and replaced immediately. Will definitely return for brunch.

The restaurant was very busy on this Tuesday lunchtime, with a great “buzz”. The food was excellent and the service very good. We were not rushed at all and the timing of the courses was very good. The only negative was that we had to wait a long time for the bill because the waiter was in prolonged discussion with another diner and did not notice we were waiting. This is a lovely, friendly place with great food.

Very good as always at an Ivy. Slightly more cramped surroundings than found in Ivy Collection restaurants but still good service, food and ambience.

My husband and I enjoyed eating here although I was disappointed with a starter that I had the Laverstock Park Farm Mozzarella di Buffala with crispy artichokes pear and truffle honey as it was far too sweet and alas I expected some real chargrilled artichokes but what was actually on the plate had nothing to do with artichokes! The other dishes else were great.

Delicious meal at the Ivy Cafe.. intense flavours and interesting menu. Good wine list. Serving staff were helpful and friendly, Tables rather shoe-horned in , but in spite of being busy Saturday lunchtime , we were well looked after and the food was delivered promptly and piping hot. Great place to meet up with friends.. excellent location. Very enjoyable.

Good food. Good location. Slightly expensive. The waitress helped to ensure the food choices were appropriate for the intolerances that were noted. Would’ve been useful and more empowering to have a menu that highlighted the allergens in a more obvious way. We are both gluten intolerant and the menu didn’t highlight which dishes we could have, which is unusual for restaurants in London.

It was my friends birthday. We placed an order but the waiter did not inform us about the last order as they are suppose to inform you before the kitchen closes.

We were all new in the city to know the timings ourself. Hence why service was a bit on lower grade. Also the manager of the resturant thought we paid less whereas it was his computer system was was playing up and he ended up apologizing.
