We had an amazing time at The Ivy Café - Marylebone. We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday and they made us feel special all along. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was really relaxed, we never felt rushed and I would like to say a big thank you to the staff for the great service despite a very busy day! We will definitely be back. Thank you!

Really enjoyed our lunch at this branch. The menu always has something for everybody and bearing in mind it's position, offers excellent value. Neither of us were drinking alcohol and it was nice to see a good offereing of soft drinks and non-alcoholic cocktails. The courgette fries were a little soggier than I had had before and the only other issue was that we felt the tables of two where we were seated, were extremely close together bearing in mind the current COVID figures. Maybe only have two tables along that bench seat and not three. Other than that great - good staff, very welcoming.

We visited the Marylebone branch on Saturday as we had some vouchers. From start to finish the service was excellent. The evening’s experience overall was super as we felt relaxed and we’re not rushed at any point to choose or leave. The waiter, Fulvio who attended our table, was friendly and I really felt that he wanted us to enjoy the evening. He really looked after us without being overbearing. The menu was interesting with lots of choice. The food was served piping hot and portions were of a good size. We will certainly visit again.

A really friendly and personal service from the second we walked in the door. It was a busy Saturday afternoon, but we were well looked after throughout. Food was good, wine was good (list is expensive though) and we left several hours later feeling very happy!

Good food with a nice selection. Service was very attentive but then it wasn't terribly busy. Location is very convenient for the Wigmore St area and the decor of the restaurant is very agreeable. Very happy to go back time and again.

Very poor service today unfortunately, they were very busy but no excuse for very bad service. For example the server spilled water on the table whilst filling our glasses, rather than get some napkins to mop it up he just walked off and then i had to tell him to clean it next time he arrived at the table.
I also had to ask another waiter to clear an empty champagne glass and napkins that been on the table for a long time, at the same time i asked for a bottle of water and he just took empty bottle and said ill cone back later for the other stuff.
Unbelievable !!!

Food is always good but clearly service is not up to standard

An unfortunate experience, waited an hour for mains that turned up dry and inedible (I assume they were left under a warmer). One meal out of three eaten. Usually very reliable, but not this time

Of two main courses, one was excellent- a dick curry- and the other- half a roast chicken- was decidedly average. The chicken was over cooked and hard. It tasted as if it had been taken from the freezer and dropped into a deep fat fryer. Other meals at this restaurant have been much better.

Whenever we arrive, we are greeted like long lost friends. The ambience of this restaurant is second to none, with waiting staff who go out of their way to enable you to enjoy the experience. The food, as always, was beautifully presented and excellent quality. The waiting staff were attentive, helpful and friendly with nothing being too much trouble. This is one of our top London restaurants, and one we will visit often in 2022!

Lovely evening and excellent food - our only issue was that the starter we ordered was forgotten about and I had to ask for it again. When it did arrive, the mains then arrived 30 seconds later so that spoiled the flow of the meal somewhat. Other than that, a beautiful restaurant, friendly host staff and high quality food.

From the maitre'd at the door to the serving staff throughout the evening, the Ivy at Marylebone get it right. A nicely mixed crowd gives a gentle energy to a medium sized room. The whole room is visible from each table, more or less. Lighting offers a 'kind' ambience to an eclectic French brasserie setting. Menu is varied to cater for most tastes, a separate vegan menu is available. Food arrived well presented in good time by staff both professional and considerate. Toilets smell perfumed and are very clean.
This is the 4th time I've been here, each time consistently enjoyable.
Thanl you Ivy staff for doing it well!
