Third visit to the Ivy, amazing decor. Met with friend for breakfast. Menu good, prices reasonable. Service poor. Food lukewarm though tasty.The waitress cleared our plates away as we put down our knives and forks! Maybe it wasn't busy enough for her on the morning in question. We had to ask twice for our bill.

Lovely festive lunch surrounded by beautiful decor. Service was friendly and efficient. Both specials of the day were fish dishes so perhaps recommend more variety with the specials to offer better choice.

Service poor, food average. A lovely venue but a bit of a case of style over substance. A lot of staff on, but we found it hard to drag them away from chatting to each other to get any service!

I have been to the Ivy several times first few times were not great i presume teething problems were the issue but management handled complaints very well.
Our experience on Thursday night was fantastic from ordering to the food coming to the atmosphere. Excellent experience overall. I will continue to go to the Ivy 👏

First time at Ivy. Was slightly concerned about start up negative reviews re service, but I would have no issues on this front ,as the service was excellent. Very pleasant lunch with no pressure on our table to leave in what was a pre Xmas busy time. I would be happy to recommend this venue for all ages.

Expected a higer quality of service for the price - inncorrect orders arriving to our table & a long waiting time before being acknowledged/ having our orders taken. The restaurant was busy however, so this may have been a once off as friends have visited and recieved great service. Food was nice but generally over priced, however the decor was lovely.

I took the wife for her Birthday. First class service as soon as we arrived. Wonderful atmosphere, fantastic menu, beautifully presented food which was so tasty and all very reasonably priced. We were not rushed. Neither were we ever waiting very long for service! A wonderful experience. I'll definitely be booking there again!

I was there for my birthday this week and our waitress Emily was the loviest person that I have come across and it would be a big reason for coming back to the restaurant. So knowledgable about the menu and the wine list and she even brought out a little cake for my birthday after the meal. It was a really lovely evening and it is a great setting for any event, birthday, meal that you would have. I am looking forward to my next booking.

A very enjoyable occasion but perhaps a little too noisy, i.e. difficult to hear/chat with the person beside one. Everything else though, especially the food and Mario (who served us) was fantastic. A most enjoyable evening. Thank you.

This was my fifth visit to The Ivy since July. Four visits were for birthdays including three as breakfast gatherings. It's an ideal location for an early / mid morning meeting with special friends or family. The breakfast menu has something for everyone. My waitress on Tuesday has served me previously - she's just lovely...friendly, attentive but not intrusive.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Ivy. The food was good but not spectacular. The Guinness was very good and I liked the glasses. The coffee was wonderful. The restaurant itself was beautiful with comfortable seating. I did not like the high seats at the bar. I had to stand as we waited for our table, but it was an enjoyable experience.

It was my second time to visit the IVY Dawson Street Unfortunately I was given the exact same table as the last time at the window and yet again we were all including my husband who is never cold freezing I did mention it a few times but it didn't make any difference so although the staff are very friendly the food was nice it is hard to have a good time when you're cold ❄️☃️☃️☃️

I had heard a lot about the ivy and was not impressed to be honest. The food was mediocre...the drinks service was the only positive thing to be honest. Our server did not seem very interested in us. I just think for the hype and price it was overrated.
