    Over-all dinning experience was 5☆ This restaurant is now listed as one of our family favourites to dine when we visit Exeter. Our 8yr old and 10yr old really enjoyed their meals and desserts. The food was delicious and beautifully presented

    We love The Ivy Exeter and even had a family dinner (9 of us) there on Christmas Eve 2023 but so disappointed with yesterday’s evening meal. It was Father’s Day and our table for 5 was booked for 7.15pm. We arrived on time and were guided to an extremely small, round table probably only intended to seat 3 people. We had to resort to moving anything not essential from the table to a shelf behind us just to create space for plates and cutlery. Shortly after we arrived the restaurant became much quieter with plenty of larger tables becoming free. However, even after we pointed out our lack of space to the waiter we weren’t offered to move. The service was unusually slow and very poor - waiter wanted our food order before we’d even been offered drinks after waiting ages for any service at all. Such a shame the service was so poor as it’s normally a lovely experience. Normally would recommend but wouldn’t now unless service improves from yesterday

    Let down by some quite poor unexpected service. The second we sat down we were asked what drinks we would like without being given a chance to look at the menu. The waitress hovered over us whilst we quickly picked a drink as it felt like we were being rushed. Then once we made are order the waitress took all the menus off the table including the food menu which was really bizarre as we had only just arrived. I then told another waitress that are food menu has been taken away & could we have one so we can actually see what food is on the menu. We ordered are meal once being able to see the menu & I ordered a £15 glass of wine which for me is a lot of money but we were there to enjoy ourselfs, worked hard to be able to come here & it was my girlfriend’s birthday & I wanted to treat her. The meal turned up & after nearly finishing it there was still no wine. I asked another waitress that I ordered a glass of wine 10mins ago but it hasn’t turned up, she said she will get it sorted but if it isn’t here in 5mins then give them another shout….. seriously! Then, another lady turned up at the table & apologised that the wine had taken so long but said it was only ordered 7mins ago. Yes it probably was by the 2nd waitress I asked but the first time I asked was about 20mins ago, she obviously never made the order. I’m not one to complain believe it or not but this was such a let down & we were so looking forward to it, unfortunately due to are experience there’s no way I would recommend anyone coming here.

    Small portions, and everything such as chips and vegatables charged as sides e.g peas and beans with shepherds pie .Very disappointing ,in my opinion overpriced pub grub.Had better at Weatherspoons.

    Our waitress JJ was brilliant.. it was a shame that the aircon was blasting freezing air from the vents behind us and I had to sit with my coat on and eventually put a cushion over the vents.. I did notice that others had their coats on if they were sat by the vents.. also one thing which we were quite shocked at was the level of dust on the surrounding sills and plants and sides which were all very close to feels and us. I would have thought that a place like the Ivy would be on top of its housekeeping but this dust had clearly been there for weeks or even months! This is shocking in a good establishment.. however our food and service were very good I just wanted to make you aware of some important tweaks that could be made.. I have eaten in your Cheltenham and Bath ivys several times .

    A little disappointed this time, we both ordered the vegetarian curry, looked great when it arrived, but soon realised they were both the seafood curry. I don't eat seafood, so I sent mine back, my wife was ok with hers. I got mine in the end. When we had the bill, they still charged us for one seafood curry, even though we had ordered the vegetable. I queried this and then altered it to the vegetable curry price.

    The time slot they allocate you is too short. We had only just received our coffees and they were rushing us to leave the table for the next guests. Good job none of us wanted a dessert, as you would never have time to eat three courses in the allocated time for your table. For that reason I probably wouldn’t return, as I felt rushed. The food was quite nice, but not outstanding. Fabulous decor and polite attentive staff.
