It was ok, Staff were fabulous but we usually go out for pub meals that are larger and better value so was a little different to out usual liking wasn't for us for dinner. BUT The buffet Breakfast was amazing at Ivy and Jacks definitely would go back for their buffet Breakfast. Thank you

We booked a table early evening as we were going to the theatre. There was no one to meet us at the door and I had to find a waiter to say we had booked. Got seated and placed our order and waited 45 mins for our food. We were told we weren’t forgotten but the pork chop had to rest! Food was tasty but not warm so had obviously been left in the kitchen. We ordered 2 glasses of wine and my wine never arrived until I asked for it 10 mins later. When we paid and told the waiter our concerns he said that it was a new menu and everything was cooked to order so took along time. It was quiet when we arrived and it doesn’t take 45 mins to cook a pork chop and serve a beef cheek. Not good service and won’t be back.

Responded on 7 May 2019

Hi Corrine, thank you for taking the time to write feedback. We started our new menu on Wednesday and some staff are still familiarising themselves. Unfortunately the lamb chop does take around 30 minutes to cook from scratch (longer if the restaurant is busy), and this should have been communicated upon arrival if you made the staff aware of your theatre plans. We have followed up on this issue and are ensuring all staff are aware of the suggestions for a pre-theatre meal. Much appreciated

Delightful waitress, friendly & attrntive, hope she got the tip we left for her.She asked what tme our concert was (dinner pre David Gray)& she was immediately aware of our needs. As another waitress was delivering our dessert she clicked that there wasn't a second spoon coming with it (we were sharing )& by the time it got to the table,spoon number 2 was there. Delicious food, good wine selection, perfect ore show dinner.

Service was ok but had to remind staff to bring my partners beer. After the reminder the barman came over and informed us that they were out of the beer we had ordered. Given it was an on tap beer that was very surprising. I had the Ivy’s bowl which was delicious and partner had the Moroccan lamb cutlets which he enjoyed but thought they could have been a little more spicy. Meals were well priced and enjoyable casual lunch.

We booked ahead and had table of 8. Very friendly and polite. Order was messed up and meals not as requested. Younher Staff member tried very hard and apologised several times. Second older taff member retook order however it was messed up again. Didnt say too much to us and once served meals did not offer anything to compennsate. Delayed lunch by 20 minutes as meals not served together. Ruined a farewell luncheon as we ate seperately.

Ivy and Jack is in a great location close to the CBD. My girlfriend and I went for dinner, and we were fairly happy with the experience. The BBQ ribs was a very generous size, and the sauce was very nice. The meat wasn't quite as tender as I'd expect, but it was still quite good. My girlfriend didn't enjoy her gnocchi very much, and after trying some for myself - I agreed it lacked in flavour and was very bland. The dessert was great - and the staff were all very pleasant. I'd probably go back again, though probably give the gnocchi a miss next time.

A great trendy bar. Feeling right in the heart of things, whilst also feeling like you are out on the town, even in the daytime.
Great menu selections, most of which are priced well (although I couldn’t really see how my plate of feta, olives, cheese and some meat was a $26 dish). The battered barramundi and chips was a good deal at $20.

Join their high rollers club, and get a free meal for a friend.

Lots of specials, such as $15 lunch, $10 cocktails, happy hour etc.

Despite having excellent meals in the past, this meal was one of the worst I have experienced in a long time. Yes it was extremely busy because of the time of the year but when pizza.s come, not cooked properly and one of our friends lunch came minus the pork belly and was told it was underneath the salad and upon investigation there was nothing there. This meal was taken back and returned with 4 pieces of diced pork thrown on the top. Waited over an hour and a half for our meals, noticing that other tables who ordered after ours were served before us. The senses of opinion with the five ladies I was with was that it would take us a considerable time before we ventured back, if at all.
