    As usual, the food and ambiance were great. However, it was very noisy and in the future we would ask to be seated in the conservatory where there is carpet and therefore quieter. Also, our waitress was unfortunately rather surly and unwelcoming which was a shame.

    Very pleased with our experience at Th Ivy. The only thing I would have liked to change was where we were sat. We were by the entrance so one didn’t get to enjoy the decor or ambience as much. One felt apart from everyone. That said it was comfortable, light and we weren’t bothered by anyone else eating around us. The noise level was acceptable but our table was right by the bar so there was a lot of noise of ice clattering and glasses knocking together which echoed around us. The food was amazing.

    We were sat at our table for approx 10-15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. The waiter who eventually came to serve us was dressed in black, but was just stand offish and wasn’t friendly at all. Other staff we interacted with were lovely.

    Reserved a table for afternoon tea for a birthday on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant very busy. Unfortunately we waited over an hour for the food to arrive, had to ask where it was. We were given replacement tea as ours had gone cold. A few cakes were missing when it arrived, which we had to ask for. One of our drinks was given complimentary and service was taken off the bill.

    The service was quite slow to bring initially our drinks and then our afternoon tea. They were accommodating and did bring everything over but we waited quite a while and Had to try and grab a waiter’s attendance everytime we wanted something as opposed to them checking in on us. I have been to lots of these restaurants but this was the most disappointing for the service

    We were extremely disappointed. We booked a table for five many days in advance. The restaurant tried to seat us at what was clearly a table for four, but kept telling us otherwise. They expected three people to sit on a small sofa seat in order to accommodate us. The three smallest members of our party, two ladies and a teenage boy, simply could not fit on there comfortably. We were eventually moved to a different and more suitable table, but in return we were then completely ignored. We had to ask for our order to be taken, for our drinks order to be brought and for the dessert menu. Nothing was offered voluntarily. They didn't even bring tap water without being asked for it, despite being told to leave the water we had at the first table behind. Then, after we had paid, an agitated member of staff came running over to say that we had not been charged for all of our drinks due to the change of table, so would we mind paying another £70+ on top of the £200+ we had already paid. They did have the grace to reduce that last bill and to deduct the service charge from it, but even so we doubt that we will be back again. Which is a shame, as the food was as good as it always is at The Ivy.

    We went for a champagne afternoon tea after being given a gift voucher. The tea itself was ok, decent sandwiches and cakes but absolutely no choice of tea, just standard breakfast tea. What was most disappointing about our visit on this occasion was the service. Took ages to get seated, waited about 10 minutes for a second glass of champagne and then literally couldn’t get anyone’s attention to pay or get our remaining cakes boxed. We eventually left the gift voucher on the table and walked out holding the cakes. Very disappointed.

    A wide-ranging menu, something for most tastes and pockets. Very busy, so the staff are kept on their toes and perform well. Greeting area is very small and hard against the street entrance. As a result, it ca be jammed and awkward if anything other than an immediate 'let me take you to your table' response is needed. Good for lunch and dinner. We've been twice and will certainly go again.
