    The whole experience was magical. We were greeted and escorted to our table promptly. Water was brought and our order taken after we had been given time to peruse the menus. All the staff were attentive and the food sublime. The service was top notch. Can’t wait to eat there again.

    Absolutely gutted that the lemon sole had bones in it- and it wasn’t just one big one in the middle, there were so many smaller bones breaking off and with the dim lighting, couldn’t see very well so was afraid to eat it- it ruined my experience. I would have preferred the transparency on the menu. My friends had shepherds pie off the 1917 menu and again were disappointed. We are regular customers and this has got to be the worst menu unfortunately. Service as always was 10/10.

    Our food was amazing, no complaints. The hosts were also great. It was apparent that our server did not want to be there. She made no general communication, we felt rushed by her questions, she did not smile, she appeared moody, she was blunt with her questions and answers. It made the experience slightly uncomfortable actually.

    Had a lovely meal with you on Saturday. Excellent service from our waiter - sorry I can’t remember his name. Only gave 3 * for food though as the crepe Suzette was somewhat disappointing. Everything else was excellent and the birthday treat for hubby was a lovely touch.

    Hi we had a fabulous two course meal on Saturday afternoon, first time using The Ivy in Birmingham, I have used the The Ivy Towere Bridge several times, although food and service both restaurants are equal the noise level was atrocious and the tables extremely close to each other with no privacy. I will come again but would be asked to be seated upstairs where the ambience seemed a lot nicer Tina J

    The atmosphere & decor was beautiful. The service was excellent! Especially Raymond & Nicole, exceptional service from both. The only slight disappointment was the chunky chips. They weren’t what I would class as ‘chunky’ , in fact, they were just run of the mill frozen chips & at least 5 of mine had black bits, so i left them. Just felt they let the rest of the delicious food down a tad

    Crammed together next to two other tables. One of which all stunk of cigarettes. For such a large amount of money it would be nice to sit just the two of us on a date night rather than next to two other parties. Tables need to be further apart.
