Staff unfriendly . Got the order wrong twice. We were put out after the hour and a half even though we asked to be moved to the bar they said no . Most places are allowing people to stay longer . Expensive food and drink. Won’t be back although the atmosphere was good

Really enjoyed. Very well spaced out and staff were great. One of our sides was forgotten and after we asked for it , it came about 20 mins later when we had finished eating our mains. No big deal but it happened. It didn’t effect our experience. It was our anniversary and we had a great day.

Disappointed last night when we arrived at the Iveagh and where advised we all where required to order a main course each. This was not advertised when booking table and not in line with government guidelines

I know we’re living through Covid 19 but the guideline for the 1hour 45 mins in a restaurant like The Ivy is ridiculous. However I cannot totally blame Covid19 for a night that had huge flaws. Our waitress was either over worked & or stressed. She missed taking my husband’s food order & had to be called back. There was a delay in getting our drinks to our table. In fact I had to go to the bar myself to order the wine as my waitress was no where to be seen & another waitress saw me & ignored me. The guy behind the bar was super attentive & delivered the wine to our table quickly. Food was nice & delivered quickly. When we requested the bill we requested a glass of champagne for our daughters as myself & my husband still had wine to drink. We were basically told that we had over stayed our welcome & time was up. So while we finished up our girls sat there with not even a glass of water. Not like our table was needed for the next sitting or that the restaurant was closing. Everything to do with Covid is delivered as guidelines. Courtesy & common sense would have made our evening but instead the lack of judgement marred the experience. €500+ later & a ‘here’s your hat what’s the hurry’ attitude left me with a very bad taste.

Had a lovely evening with my daughter and 2grandsons. The boys are 7 1/2& 9.
They weren’t impressed with the children’s menu, so they also had the 3 courses for €25! The ate every bit of it!
It was a very enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend it!

Service was very good, waitress was informative & helpful. Food was of a less than satisfactory quality for the price. It lacked in flavour and taste.

Went for dinner for a special night for my birthday last Saturday , we have been 3 times since back opening in the last 5 weeks . Anyways we went with 2 other friends , the starters was disgusting none of it was touched , when we got the main courses there was a hair in my friends meal which we told the waiter straight away . She couldn’t eat after that as it was turning her stomach . The meal came to over 500 euros for the 4 of us and they never even gave anything complimentary after the hair was found . Disgusted at the service for the price you pay !

Food and cocktails were amazing, the service declined throughout the meal which was a bit of a shame due to the one hour and 45 minute covid-19 limitation, and as we were celebrating my boyfriends birthday we were left waiting to order our drinks. Overall the restaurant was amazing, hand sanitiser was available at every table which was really great and the ambiance was lovely.
