Upon arrival it took over ten min to get our table ready. I had to chase for it twice. Door staff not attentive and one lady in particular giving attitude and not smiling at all.

I ordered eggs avocado and they came back hard boiled so had to send back and took ages to get them by which time the rest of guests had finished their breakfast.

Conservatory room was lacking service.

Incredible food and very pleasant atmosphere however repeatedly told by staff that they wouldn’t be able to accommodate numerous seating requests to be on the terrace which was disappointing. Can’t take it away from the food though...

My partner and I were very very excited to go to The Ivy in Chelsea, since so many people have told me how amazing it was. I love the scenery and ambiance of it, but unfortunately I was not to happy with the service. Our table unfortunately broke as we were being sat down. One of the leg bottoms broke off and the whole table started moving. We asked to be seated at another table, because it was extremely wonky and unpleasant, but no, instead there was just a cork screw stuck at the bottom and that seemed to solve the problem for a minute, but the table was very wonky and my partner an I always had to keep holding our drinks and try not touch the table, so that it doesn't move. I understand that sometimes the tables are al booked out and there might not be another table, but it would have been nice to just have a more pleasant experience, since we were so excited. Other then that, the food was delicious!

Such a lovely atmosphere and very pretty place. Food was delicious, we had steak, and the chocolate bomb for dessert was to die for! Wasn’t stuffy or pretentious a we thought it might have been.
Service could have been better, more engaging and eye contact with customer but wasn’t bad.

The food was disappointing in comparison with previous visits .. black cod filet burnt on top and the courgette fritti were soggy.
It should be made clear in the reservation information that the garden shuts at precisely 10pm due to neighbour noise disturbance. If I had known in advance, I would have booked for 7h30. We were under pressure to order from the outset, had 10 minutes to eat dessert, and drink coffe, which was served first, and then felt like we were being pushed out .. not a great feeling when you have just spent £200 on a meal for two.

The garden outside is outstanding and the venue amazing. However the food is average and the service medium. A lot about the name and the fuss with it but average overall.

A lovely meal. Generally attentive staff. We were celebrating my partner's birthday. I had informed the restaurant in advance, but sadly they were not able to meet my prior request for an outdoor table or do anything to help us celebrate - not even a happy birthday (or a smile) from the door or waiting staff. It's a shame - I think perhaps the only place we've been to celebrate a special occasion where the staff didn't seem to care. I would visit again, as the food and venue are lovely, but not for a special occasion.

The meal was excellent but service really inconsistent badly timed just not attentive.
Long waits for simple thing like lime or sauce.
Too good a restaurant to have a bad waiter for table of 5.

Service was very slow and had to ask for things at least twice before they arrived. They took the bottle of wine away and left us with empty glasses for much of the evening.

We love this place. We celebrated our daughter's birthday and loved the ambiance and service from all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We sat in the garden - my favourite space - and we weren't too close to other tables. The cocktails were amazing and well priced. The food, as before, was faultless and all three courses were delicious. Thank you Ivy Chelsea Garden - and we look forward to coming again.

Splendid entrance, leading to an attractive vibrant busy dining room.
Uncomfortable table which was a bit small for the food and drink.
It was theheavy legs of the table that trapped you.

My lemon sole was tasty but a bit on the small side.
My companions first courses of a form of pea soup was bland .
Their dessert was the chocolate bomb, which melts when the hot source is poured over it.
Very dramatic but so sweet you could only eat a spoonful.

The service was pleasant and attentive and the price was moderate.

Please improve the food and have a wonderful restaurant

My two guests had never been before and thought it was amazing.
Ihave been a number of times myself.
This time I had tempura prawns as a main course which is my favourite.
It was obviously cooked by a different chef than when I have had it before
It was not very good too much thick batter, not as light as tempura
batter should be.
I was not very happy with my lunch.
Sorry

We usually love the Ivy Chelsea Garden for its great service and food. Unfortunately this time the service was lacking as we were not even shown to our table and the food was mostly luke warm. Hopefully it improves next time.

We ate at the Ivy after spending the day at Wimbledon, which made it difficult to know the exact time we would arrive. The restaurant was very helpful in fitting us in as soon as possible after we arrived. They also changed our table to accommodate our somewhat older friends whose hearing is not as good as it was. The result was an excellent evening with very tasty food, good wine and friendly and helpful staff.
