    We arrived at 15.15 and the restaurant was empty. Only a handful of tables were occupied both inside and outside. However, we were told that they are full and no chance of an outside table and there’s an hour wait for inside. We found this very odd as most tables were unoccupied. So we stepped out and I opened my OpenTable app and was immediately able to book an outside table for 15.30, which was at this point ten minutes away. We went back and without any apology or explanation were shown our table outside by the same lady who had just told us they were full. On our way to the table we were also asked whether we would be having desserts after our meal, which again was odd as we hadn’t decided at that point. We were there about two hours and the restaurant never got full in that time. Food was good.

    Very nice food, atmosphere & decor however service was very poor for a restaurant of this calibre. Disappointing as Ivy garden & the chain of Richard kerring are usually consistently excellent.

    My son recommended the restaurant for lunch and it was perfect. Delicious food, beautifully presented (blackened cod baked in banana leaf is to die for), great cocktails and very comfortable al fresco dining area. Staff are delightful and attentive and I can't wait to go back!

    Very nice spot near Kings Cross Station. Granary square itself is full of people enjoying the weather and the water fountains. Granary Square Brassierie is a lovely place for breakfast, great atmosphere, and great service and the decor is amazing inside.

    The staff were not attentive, neglected to provide Plates for our starters and had to request these. Also, the food was plonked on the table from behind my seat so was unable to see who had actually brought the food to the table. We were not asked if everything was fine with the food. All in all was disappointed with the service.

    I wasn’t happy with my experience this visit as I had to speak to the restaurant 3 times about my requirements for a spacious table for 2 babies and even asked if the restaurant had air con. When we got there the whole place was empty so it was ridiculous for them to fuss over where our pram/high chair would go plus we were in the hottest part of the restaurant with the door open. They got the order wrong with no apologies so half the group finished their meal when the other half arrived. The service really let the place down at what is usually a great restaurant and one I have visited many times.

    I'm a regular. I had booked a table for breakfast and when we got there the host (male) tucked us on the left - first table inside - near the door. I asked to sit further into the restaurant or in one of the booths and he told me that none of that was open due to staff shortages. Then as we were looking at the menu - he came in and placed lots of other customers into the tables that I had asked about - and it was clear that they did not have a reservation. Food - it came late and it was cold. The sausages were not cooked through and neither was the bacon. The toast looked like it had been shown the toaster - and because it had gone cold - was hard. Toast needs to look brown!!! I had ordered a side of bacon - and they forgot. So I asked for it - came out 10 mins later and again was not fully cooked The water glasses (two out the four) - had some form of lipstick stains - which we asked to be replaced For a place that is my regular as I live in Kings Cross - and I had family visiting - who I wanted to take to one of my favourite breakfast places - you really let yourselves down I was very disappointed and we paid the bill - left the food - and went somewhere else. Your staff need to treat every customer equally ...

    We had a wonderful evening with very attentive service - hugely appreciated as both of us have food allergies or intolerances. We asked questions about the menu and our lovely waitress went to the kitchen to ask. They were so accommodating and the food was delicious. A really relaxing way to spend the evening.

    Difficult to get the attention of serving staff when we arrived. When they did come to the table, on two occasions they then left before we’d completed our order. Food was good but all of us were frustrated by the service. Maybe the restaurant is short staffed.

    The ivy chain restaurants are the one I normally go to when there is special date or for closed friends dinner out . I Simply love their quality food , service , vibes etc . However , this is the 2nd time I visited The Granary Square Brasserie , this time for a dinner out with my BF . Quality of food is spot on as usual . However air-conditioning was not strong enough , I was sweating for about 30 mins since we have been seated then our key waitress last night were kind of having her attitude problem . This was so unlike what I have experienced before in any The Ivy restaurants around London . Maybe she was having a bad day yesterday but I was very surprised to be served by a moody waitress ….

    Food always good however the tables are rather close together! Not much social distancing and you can only just squeeze past the table to get to your seat! Would much prefer to have more space between tables.

    Great ambience, lovely food and very nice wine. we were going to order a bottle of prosecco but thought too expensive at £46! Waiter was very exuberant but unfortunately didn't, after being asked three times, bring us some ice cubes for our drinks. We obtained the ice ourselves from the bar.

    Have loved previous visits here and know it was very busy but food not as good as usual and quite a few dishes overcooked & 1 ee had to send back. Our server was however great so maybe just an off night for us but then made it feel rather expensive.

    Overall, the food and ambience were great. Our server was really friendly and professional. Unfortunately, the service was quite slow - I think we were waiting to give our food order for about 30 mins? We had lots to chat about so it didn’t affect the evening too much, however towards the end of the meal, there just didn’t seem to be anyone around to check on us. We would have easily had more drinks, but there was too much of a gap before we were asked. My friends also ordered 2 Old Fashioned cocktails and the plum version was served as standard? We sent these back after telling someone, but that then left myself and my other friend without a drink. By that point, we didn’t really want to order more.

    An interesting building but an Ivy menu and prices. Starters were good duck salad and a courgette and goat’s cheese tartlet. The Ivy fish pie was good but the Chicken Milanese was dry and overcooked. Desserts were ok
