Everything was superb from the moment we entered until we left.
Our table was ready for us when we arrived.
The waitress was attentive without being obtrusive.
The ambiance and the food were perfect.

I will certainly be back and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Ivy to friends.

Could not understand the waiter. Leaves of lettuce on plate and they were dry with absolutely no dressing.

Had The Shepard’s Pie and was disappointed with it. Meat was very chewy. Usually love The Ivy. Seemed to me that the pie had been heated up in the microwave & wasn’t fresh. Food came almost too quickly. I noticed food came out quickly for everyone. Rose was lovely & cocktail. Got a side of peas which were lovely. Service was outstanding.

Last minute booking.
Food was great, it’s been a consistently high standard on each visit. Also served up an excellent G&T.
Service was slightly erratic but all staff were polite and helpful so this didn’t detract from our evening.
Will be back again soon!

Very disappointing. We were reminded on more than 5 occassions that the table was required back by 8pm. Twice would have been enough. On arrival and maybe after our main course. It ruined the evening for us and our guest, as we felt rushed the whole evening. The tone in which this message was delivered bordered on being rude. We are told Restaurants are crying out for people to return but if this is how you treat your customers, it does not bode well.

Lovely from the starters through dessert. Went for an early dinner and it did not disappoint. Recommend the scallops and the truffle potatoes. Started with a berry spritz as well and it was refreshing. The classic menus are very good. Go for the chocolate bombe dessert, especially if you are a social media foodie. We did not video it but many do. Absolutely delicious. Nice staff and service and a mixture of locals, tourists and guests. Attentive to Covid protocols and accepted US vaccination cards.

The place was just gorgeous as was the atmosphere but the service was mediocre, they gave my dad a beer glass for his wine and spilt my mums cocktail at her place setting, gave the cocktails with no straw and forgot the broccoli my dad ordered. For the class of restaurant I would expect better. In saying that the servers were very pleasant and the place was beautiful the food was good although the scallops were cold.
A place that makes it looks like you will be spoilt but fell short. We didn’t complain as it makes my dad really uncomfortable🙄

I was disappointed with the service. I brought my friend out for dinner to celebrate a special occasion and I have to say the service was surprisingly poor. I felt we were ignored for most of our dining experience. As an example, when we asked for the bill, it was given to us and we were then ignored for over 15 mins until we finally managed to call a waiter over to us. This was at the end of the night when most tables had cleared out, the staff seemed to be preoccupied with getting the tables ready for the next day, rather than dealing with the customers they currently had.
I can’t say I would be eager to return any time soon.

Totally would recommend it, but maybe in a less busier day (not the weekend) - it was packed, so the food/drinks from the afternoon tea arrived quite late (aprox. 1h). But it was delicious and worth the wait. And, of course, the setting itself is spectacular, so it's worth the reservation :)
