    Placed at an excellent positioned table as the Restaurant was not busy in that area. Lots of vacant tables. However two young patrons were positioned next to ours and were joined by two other young patrons. These were very well behaved and not in any way obnoxious. Because of the Covid threat and our ages (80 & 78) we were slightly uneasy at the proximity of these young patrons and requested an alternative table which was provided instantly and without question. Perhaps it could be the policy of the Restaurant to leave a spare table between patrons when convenient at least until the Covid Threat has diminished !

    Food, price and ambience all good. However, service was very very slow although pleasant. It took almost an hour, and a several reminders to serving staff, for the food to arrive after ordering. And this at a not too busy lunchtime and nothing particular difficult about the orders. What really compounded the issue was that despite the very slow service experience the service charge had been pre added to the bill for payment !

    I love the Ivy for evening occasions and also for casual lunch. The set menu at lunch is good value and the food is nice. Staff, as always, efficient and attentive. Reassuring that Covid passes were checked at the door.

    Exceptional service and the food was divine. Dined entirely from the vegetarian menu and it was fantastic. The only thing that wasn’t delicious was the chips surprisingly! But it didn’t detract from the amazing complex flavours of all the other dishes we ordered! Will definitely go again.

    Good, friendly service. Beautiful surroundings and ambience. Food was good but not spectacular and additional sides which were required for some of our mains brought the price up. Absolutely worth a visit though for a special occasion.

    Really lovely brunch, I had eggs royale. The cocktails were lovely too. Great overall, although including a service charge of 12.5% (albeit discretionary) for a table of 3 people at brunch felt unnecessary.

    Didn’t realise there was a time limit 1.45 too short when paying so much money…. Food was tasty … staff were lovely but no movement for the kids menu… have pasta on but won’t give a small side of pasta instead of chips … makes no sense…

    Had The Shepard’s Pie and was disappointed with it. Meat was very chewy. Usually love The Ivy. Seemed to me that the pie had been heated up in the microwave & wasn’t fresh. Food came almost too quickly. I noticed food came out quickly for everyone. Rose was lovely & cocktail. Got a side of peas which were lovely. Service was outstanding.
