    Very pleasant service. Not too happy with menu options. Ordered fillet steak but not available. No fish on menu except in curry, wanted a plain meal. Restricted to set menu because 9 in group. Price included glass of champagne but would have preferred wine and non drinkers got a mocktail which wasn't consumed. Lots of waste, most of group couldn't finish dessert. Conclusion, would much prefer A La Carte.

    We arrived on time for our table. Only to be told it’s not ready to wait at the bar. (The usual) Whilst sitting at the bar we were completely ignored by the bar staff. We were there for 30 mins and could not order a drink. Other people at the bar were the same. Not one person had a drink. They seem to be taking on too many bookings and walk ins. And they should have one dedicated bar person to serve drinks to those who have to wait at the bar for their table. Other than that our waiter was excellent and the food was lovely as always.

    The bar service was very poor. We arrived at 15:30 for a 15:45 reservation. We were directed to the bar to await our table. We ordered a glass of champagne and a glass of Zero Guinness. When it had not arrived after at least ten minutes I reordered. so twenty minutes after we walked in the door we had drinks. At 16:00 we were shown to our table. After that no complaints. The food was good and the table service prompt.

    The athmosphere is great in this restaurant, however the noise level is a bit too high. It seemed like the restaurant was under staffed as we had to wait quite long between the dishes and to receive the ordered drinks. Foods were nice my steak was rather well done than medium well but I could get over it. The staff was nice and their mood was well suiting the restaurant’s position. Overall it was OK but previous visits were more pleasant.

    Very loud. The waiters were very busy(had to wait for our table). We were forgotten at the bar for a while waiting for cocktails that were not coming. We were asked to move out of the way as there were no seats at the bar and we were in the waiters’ way. Got spotted by a nice Maitre D and eventually brought to our table. The food selection was nice but disappointing. The courgette frittiti were very greay with more tempura than courgette. The monkfish and prawn curry was also disappointing as there were maybe 3 pieces of monkfish in it for nearly 35 euro! Nothing to write home re:dessert(apple tart) either. Very tasteless. Got politely asked to leave the table in next 10min at the end of the meal. After 5 minutes passed by, we got told ‘to leave the table’. No please no thank you. Not a memorable experience at all. The restaurant is stunning looking but that’s all. I would only come back for a coffee at best. Just a brasserie experience really : fast food and out experience.

    The whole experience was excellent. My wife and I wanted to go out for a romantic meal and had exactly that. I cannot remember our servers name, but he was extremely attentive, without being overbearing. The food was perfect, the drinks were tasty and the desert was to die for. It’s not our first time at The Ivy, and it certainly won’t be our last.

    Steak was returned as rare rather than medium. However 2nd helping was excellent but obviously took a little time. My colleagues chips were gone at this point so I suppose for feedback it might be good to also serve another bowl of chips

    We were not sure if we wanted to have full meal and they didn't allow us to get a table (although I had a reservation). I had to sit my 70th mom at the bar and we ende up leaving after having one drink and grabing starters. When we were leaving the waitress and her colleague were wispering about us (I know because I heard) and that made me feel very uncomfortable. I love this place, have been there several time but it was very disappoint to have been trhough that. We were celebration The Mother's day (in my home country) and it was the first time I brough my mom to The Ivy. She obviously hated the experience. Ps: Brazillian staff at the bar were extremely nice to us - they deserve a shout out! But the waitress with the very curly hair and pretty smile didn't serve at all. She could have been a little more considerate with a 70 years old woman.

    Special of the day was tasty but almost starter size. Did not compare with regular menu. I enjoyed it but was disappointed,the tortellini was small and dry! This is what let the dish down. The salmon though small was delicious and perfectly cooked. The accompanying veg were fresh and tasty.

    We enjoyed lunch here, waiting staff efficient and pleasant. Bread was delicious. It was very noisy as the place was busy, a good atmosphere but at times difficult to hear staff or each other. The only negative was the lack of a greeting or welcome on arrival, the member of staff at the reception just looked blankly at us, unsmiling. Not the best start, but the other staff were friendly and attentive.

    We celebrated our son’s 21st Bday on a busy Friday night. The restaurant was bustling and the ambience was superb. Our server Ivy, was excellent - completely switched on. Prompt service and topping up of drinks. The meal was very good. Beside us sat a lone diner who was welcomed back by the staff who were very attentive to him - we thought this was a nice touch when one is dining alone. Our evening was topped off with a bday dessert for our son. A great restaurant for a special occasion or for visitors.

    We ordered the zucchini tempura for started and found it to be a little greasy. We ordered the Chicken Milanese for our main and unfortunately it was tough. The brocolli and side chips were lovely. The chocolate bomb desert was delicious.
