    Excellent service but I thought the food servings were a little on the small side. The scallops starter consisted of three scallops. Yes, three. For €15?? A serving of scallops is generally taken to be six.

    Had a lovely meal, went for the steak very tender and cooked the way I like it. My friend had the fish and chips very good. Would recommend. It was my birthday and they were very nice, they came out with a birthday bun for me. Apple pie we shared with brandy sauce to die for. Will be back.

    The only flaw was the Guinness was served in a wet & hot glass therefore ruined the taste and not the way it should be served/presented. Everything else excellent.

Overall I would definitely be back and already told to my colleagues and friends about my amazing time. Thank you!

    Limited options for coeliacs. My sister is coeliac and vegan and she resorted to ordering 4 sides as there was only 1 option for main. The food was delicious. Service wasn’t great, 1 waiter was friendly and chatty but everyone else that approached the table were uninterested and we asked for gluten free toast and for sparkling water several times before we received either.

    Given we had only 2 hours our food order wasn’t taken until 35 mins after we arrived so we felt rushed at the end. The lady organised the birthday candle superbly though so thank you for that.

    Great ambiance & the food was delicious. However, it was disappointing not to be told that last orders at the bar had to be placed by 19.30. When two of the party looked for another drink at 19.35 to have while the other two in the party were having dessert, we were told that last orders had already been requested and that the bar was closed. We had not been asked if we wanted last orders or told that they had to be placed by a certain time. It added a sour note to the birthday celebrations we were enjoying..

    What an amazing dining experience. I had booked this for my wife's 50th from last year but due to the pandemic was unable to attend, but it was definitely worth the wait. The food was so good and the presentation stunning. All this along with a really amazing team. You did not even have to look up and someone was attending to your needs. Brilliant experience all round. I would have no reservations in recommending the Ivy to a friend.
