    Warm welcome on arrival by door & reception staff. The reception staff noted it was a special birthday. Our table wasn’t ready but we sat quite happily at the bar being served our complimentary champagne by the efficient bar staff. Our table waitress was very efficient & friendly. The food as always was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed & highly recommend. Thank you 🤩

    It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we thought we would treat ourselves for the night . As soon as we entered the restaurant we were greeted by your staff who were very warming . As we were seated at our table our waiter ( an oldish man, can't remember his name) was so friendly and helpful. My wife has a allergy to some foods so he helped her with her menu choices. He was fantastic. The meal we couldn't fault it, was fantastic . We have decided that we don't need another anniversary or birthday excuse to indulge in your Company again. We are coming back very soon Thanks

    Booked a couple of weeks ago for a pre theatre birthday lunch. Arrived a little early and we're asked to go to the bar which we did, sitting at a table unknowing it wasn't a bar table and was part of the restaurant. Was asked to move quite forcefully by 2 members of staff which was unnecessary as we realised out mistake which was genuine. Bar put on a service charge per drink which was ridiculous, it's not the USA. We had to ask to be seated twice as we had waited almost half an hour after our booking time and there were 2 empty tables which could have accommodated us. The staff were making jokes about us complaining but it felt very pointed and a bit rude really. We were polite but had to remind them we were going to the theatre and didn't want to have to rush our food. By the time we sat down and our starters arrived, we had been waiting an hour! We had to ask for our mains to be brought immediately. Food was all very tasty, my allergy was well handled and clearly managed which was a huge plus point and we all enjoyed our food but the whole thing was ruined by rushing and all getting indigestion having to hurry. To be clear, we got a 12:15 booking (we wanted 12:00 but nothing available) and needed to leave at 14:00 to get to the theatre on time. 2 hours is normally more than enough for a nice lunch. Felt the ladies at the front desk were not very welcoming and made us feel like bad from begining to end. We were definitely not complaining loudly or without justification, we were very polite and nice about it. The lady who served our food was excellent but, she did go missing for ages (clearly swamped with other tables) so she wasn't available for quick drinks orders. Sorry to say I wouldn't visit again.

    Wow what a fantastic experience we had at The Ivy Spinningfields. I attended on Sunday with my family who had bought me a voucher. From the moment we arrived we were treated as special guests, our coats and umbrellas were taken immediately, we were taken to our table, we were introduced to our waiter and vegan and vegetarian menus were brought immediately. Nothing felt like too much trouble. Our waiter James was exemplary both in his manners, his table service and knowledge. He made us all feel special without constantly interrupting our family time. Food was delicious and a treat to the eye as well ! All in all a very memorable visit.

    A bit disappointed this visit. I took some friend for a 60th birthday lunch, their first time. Had to ask for the special 2 course lunch menu after asking two ladies next to us what dish they had, they said it was the 1997 set menu. The girl that served us said the lunch menu she gave us was the only one when i asked about the set menu. Ordered a second bottle of wine i had to ask again as it didn’t come. One of the reasons i love this restaurant is the high standard of service but feltbket down on this occasion .

    Have been here for lunch several times. Always busy. On this occasion ate from the set menu, which has limited choices. Had the cauliflower soup and the cottage pie. Both were excellent, and would recommend. Coffee and chocolates to finish as not enough room for full dessert. Staff all pleasant and friendly. Will be back.

    Temperature a bit cool when we arrived but warmed up with more diners. Our cocktail order got 'lost' but remedied v quickly when we alerted the staff. And we weren't charged for them. Thank you 😊. Service was excellent, food lovely. Sides and steak sauces are expensive.

    Lovely food and drinks but tiny portions for the amount of money you have to spend. Plus the veg and sides not included with the main meal so this was added cost on top. Apart from this, a stunning venue great for special occasions.

    The brasserie is a lovely venue and staff are great. Food is good but I just feel that the food is overpriced for what it is. Also make sure you take cash for tipping your waiter as the service charge added to the bill does not go to the staff. Absolutely unacceptable in this day and age. You can ask for the service charge to be removed and then give tip in cash.

    We had a really fantastic meal. The staff were wonderful, very attentive. Had a slight issue with a wobbly table that caused some drinks to accidentally fall off. The staff response was superb - apologetic when it wasn’t their fault immediate replacement of drinks and table linen etc. Made to feel like nothing was too much and the only thing that mattered was the experience we were having. 100% amazing!

    1st class service all the way. The front of house staff were very accommodating when we asked to be moved from the table we had been allocated as there was a draught from the door to the external terrace. The service was quick and efficient but not rushed, attentive but not intrusive. The food was, as expected, top class. The presentation was simple but not basic. On the whole, although a tad on the expensive side, the complete experience was excellent.
