First ever experience at The Ivy Bath Brasserie and I cannot sing it's praises highly enough. It was immaculate throughout, service was excellent (the matrie d' was truly attentive and passionate considering the large number of diners present) the food was astonishing. I'm going to find it very difficult finding anywhere to compare!

Excellent service and the food was exquisite. The staff were very helpful and assisted with our choices as the menu is very comprehensive. The setting was great and you felt very privileged to be in such a lovely building with great decor. It was nice not to be crowded in as there was space around the table. Thank you

I took my girlfriend to Bath Ivy for her birthday and the food and drink was fine but was ruined by the lack of attention from the staff, we were sat for at least 10 minutes before our drinks order were taken and even longer for our food. We then ordered dessert twice as someone didn’t take it correctly and then after asking for the bill, it took so long I just walked up and waited to use the card machine as I was fed up by this point.

I have been many times and always loved the experience, This time I had house guests from the North of England and wanted to show you off, they were thrilled with the experience. I must say that your staff were as always, very attentive. The meal was delicious. I will be back again soon.

I wish the local council would clean the streets, especially the pavements, which are disgusting. I know it's not your problem, but perhaps you could mention sometime that it doesn't help the tourist trade and leaves a bad impression.

Superb restaurant serving top quality meals with top quality service.
The definition of brasserie is cheap and simple foods. And to me, this means churning out simple dishes quickly and frequently. This does not do the restaurant justice.
This is a top class restaurant from the ambiance to the waiter brushing off the crumbs in your table between courses!

We went to the Ivy during my hen weekend. It was just lovely from start to finish. The food was presented well, the cakes were divine, especially the cakes that looked like little potted plants complete with pansies on the top. The atmosphere was chilled and sophisticated, the staff were very smart and attentive. Will be back

Very enjoyable afternoon thank you. If I was to comment about anything I would say that you ought to replace the cucumber sandwich with something much better. We’ve all had them, they are seriously underwhelming and although quintessential for afternoon tea in the 1950’s, times change. We would love to come back again.

Our family of six enjoyed a wonderful lunch on Saturday. I can’t fault anything and our waiter was so accommodating, as one of us needed gluten and dairy free options. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious. Most importantly, the ambience is amazing too!

A very enjoyable experience to celebrate my niece's 21st Birthday. The waiting staff were extremely attentive, it was great to not have to tell them who had ordered which meal! Felt very well looked after. The surprise birthday dessert was a nice touch and very much appreciated by my niece. All in all a super lunch, the marinated yellowfin tuna was to die for!

We've been to the Ivy before but this one didnt live up to the previous standard.
Food was ok, my calamari starter was very salty but in fairness my main (the salmon) was nice.
My husband enjoyed his meal.
Service was ok, slow, we often had to ask for our wine to be topped up.
For the cost, unfortunately it wasn't a great experience but I would recommend the Ivy chain.

Warm welcome, although it was a graduation day we hadn’t said but the first half of our party were asked on arrival and when the graduate then arrived he was congratulated, he was then given a small congratulations cake at the end of the meal all very nice personal touches. The food and service were fantastic and made a great end to a lovely day

We chose the Ivy to celebrate our daughter’s graduation, and it proved to be the perfect choice. Staff were kind and helpful, and the food was excellent, both in terms of quality and value. Between us, we weren’t very hungry, but the fish and chips, haddock fish cake and open sandwich were all very well done, and the portions generous. I should also say that we sampled from the gin menu, which was just wow! Now I’m left wishing wishing I’d been a bit more exciting, and drooling over the starters and puddings which would have just been to much for us on the day. All this means that we will definitely be back, and I can heartily recommend the Ivy to others. Thank you for topping off a magically day!
