Very friendly staff. Made us feel welcome. My Caesar salad was very average but my friend enjoyed her morrocan chicken salad. Her meal was much more substantial than mine!

I was looking for a great restaurant to celebrate our daughter's 40th. She lives in LA. So I found Ivy & Jack & we wete not disappointed with our dining experience because everything was outstanding. Our daughter is such a food & dining experience guru & she would not have been disappointed. Well done Ivy & Jack & loved the historical significance. I will definitely recommend you.

A fantastic night with friends. Ivy and Jack was a bit noisy, so I probably wouldn’t recommend for a romantic first date, but the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff exceptional. I’ll definitely be back!

The setting was good. We each ordered something off the menu and although we ordered one after the other there was a huge difference in time between the food coming to the table. For the price of the food I would have expected a bigger size meal.

Yes, but with provisions. I had reserved a table for 9, ours had only 8 chairs and only four sets of cutlery - I had to ask for this to be rectified. The food was good, but could have been better. The fish in my fish burger was overdone - when the waitress brought it I thought I'd gotten a burger with a meat patty by mistake, the batter was that dark. Portion size and presentation were good and the prices are reasonable.

Food was fabulous. Great value for money too. Only complaint is that when we arrived it took us some time to attract attention to one of the staff as we had a reservation. We were then seated at one table but had to move within 5 minutes as we had been placed at the wrong table.

Funky design and layout.
Unfortunately the food wasn’t anything to make us return. Nice food, but nothing more than what you could cook at home as far as tapas goes.
Staff were friendly, but the restaurant appeared understaffed.
Glad we tried it, but won’t be returning.

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.

Meals came out over a period of 45 minutes.
Two ladies had to leave before their order came to the table.

Disappointing first experience at Ivy & Jack. We were not told we had to order at the counter. Staff never approached us once throughout the booking. When we got our food it was not good value for money or very appealing. The ceasar salad was just some lettuce with a couple of pieces of chicken roll, not even real chicken breast as would be expected. Not an enjoyable lunch.

The booking we made for 15 people was not actioned by staff despite booking online and following up with a phone call the day before. This resulted in a delay of 10 mins for the group to be seated. 4 of the 15 meals ordered were missed and had to be re-ordered which resulted in some people finishing meals before the others had been served. Overall a poor dining experience and not the first, would not book again after this.

Wait staff seemed disinterested in providing a reasonable level of service. The food was nothing to write home about. We had the gnocchi which was store bought, the rocket salad which was a basically $8 for a bunch of rocket, and the ribs which my husband said were good. There was apparently a children special on Sunday which nobody told us about even though we had to ask twice to see the children’s menu.

Great place for a catch up drink with friends and then a meal together later.
Pretty noisy on a Friday night with drinkers spilling into the meals area but I
suppose that's to be expected in a popular hot spot.
Food and drinks always top class!
