Unfortunately not all items on menu available.

Prefer to be told at the beginning rather than choosing one and having to choose again !!

In general nice service and nice place.

An absolute disgrace that over 80% of staff when not wearing masks or face shields and those that did decide to wear masks were wearing them incorrectly, not even covering their face. Wreckless behaviour given the current environment.

The dining expereince in The Ivy, Dublin is always a real treat. The staff are excellent and the ambiance is very chic and luxurious. In general the food is fabulous but on this occasion, we were disappointed with some of the main courses. In particualr, The Ivy Hamburger was disappointing as the beef pattie was clearly not freshly homemade but a rather dense and salty piece of processed minced beef that was not very tasty or enjoyable to eat. However, the rest of the food was delicious incluidng the Fish & Chips, Vanilla Cheesecake and Chocolate Bomb. Please improve the quality of the burger - othwerwise everything was excellent.
Regards,
Tom

The choice of beer was very poor. If you dont drink wine you end up drinking draft beers so take a big chance

We went for an anniversary brunch and had a lovely time. Food is quite pricy but still delicious. Would go for a special occasion, not a casual every day eatery

Personal experience was of comfortable seats, spacious area under current Covid restrictions, a very long way down to the toilets and main courses were disappointing but the desserts made up for them. We chose steak (nothing special) and a mild Chicken Curry (so mild it had no flavour).

Loved this venue. The sirloin was the best cooked steak I’ve ever had, and had so much flavour.
Drinks and cocktails were gorgeous.

Really enjoyed lunch. There were four of us in the party and all agreed. We felt safe as the staff were careful to observe the rules of distancing, hygiene etc and also as it's a large room, there was plenty of space. The food was also very good as was the service.

This is a great place for a birthday celebration as it is vibrant and lively. The food was really good, we had scallops/asparagus/calamari starters - all well cooked tasted fresh and full of flavour. As main courses we chose Salmon/Steak Tartare/Rump of lamb and again nicely presented, full of flavour and generous portions with a side of zucchini tempura (huge portion). All this plus two deserts, four cocktails and a bottle of wine for €200. Service too was attentive, efficient and very friendly.

First time eating in The Ivy.
It’s a nice, bright restaurant with a good atmosphere. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The food was very good. Maybe a little expensive. An enjoyable experience however and will probably go there again.
