Excellent ambience, great food, and excellent service. Terrific, friendly waiter.
Sanitization also well thought out, with sanitizers on each table, strategically placed throughtout the restaurant, temperature check at the door, all of which meant that I felt very safe and cared for.
The chocolate bomb is to die for, and the signature G+T!

The food is a stand out for The Ivy in the experience we had when there on Monday 3rd August. We arrived on time for our reservation but were told our table wasn’t ready and would be ready in 5-10 minutes and we were asked to take a seat at the bar and we would be fetched when our table was ready. 20 mins later we were still at the bar while there were empty tables - I went back out to the hostess - who had completely forgotten about leaving us sitting. The service was quite haphazard, with our starter served before the drinks we had ordered were delivered (and an incorrect drink at that!). Would definitely recommend the food - couldn’t fault it as it was super tasty. Also to be fair perhaps the service was down to Covid and new restrictions etc - but it just felt very all over the place which was a shame.

The space is huge though which makes you feel quite safe at the moment that you aren’t sitting on top of the table beside you, and again from a safety perspective they stuck to the 1.45 rule asking us (politely) to leave when the time was up.

Food was fine, not amazing, but fine. The service was also ok, if a little bit condescending at times. But value was very very poor given the pretty standard menu and quality. It’s just annoying and petty that you order a pricey enough steak and then find that everything is an extra even including the pepper sauce. This brings it from a reasonable level to an exorbitant price. Same for all or meals except one. Overall, it was an okay experience, but much much better value and ambiance from smaller independent restaurants across the city. Was really looking forward to going here but honestly, I’d say give it a miss as just not worth it. Thanks

Had the most amazing lunch with the girls - Staff were so lovely and attentive, food was gorgeous and the place itself is stunning.

The portions are huge and the price is extremely reasonable.

Love the Ivy and have been several times. Food was excellent. Service not so much. Appreciate covid protocols are difficult for staff but had to ask twice for a few items as he kept forgetting. Asked for bread, forgot and then asked did I still want mid-starter which we did. No theatre to the meal or any real pleasantries to putting it on the table . I recommend the chocolate bomb to my friend, it was put infront of her and she was about to crack it before I told her to wait as their was caramel sauce to come. That was brought last. Will be back hopefully the service will be better.

Unfortunately not all items on menu available.

An absolute disgrace that over 80% of staff when not wearing masks or face shields and those that did decide to wear masks were wearing them incorrectly, not even covering their face. Wreckless behaviour given the current environment.

The dining expereince in The Ivy, Dublin is always a real treat. The staff are excellent and the ambiance is very chic and luxurious. In general the food is fabulous but on this occasion, we were disappointed with some of the main courses. In particualr, The Ivy Hamburger was disappointing as the beef pattie was clearly not freshly homemade but a rather dense and salty piece of processed minced beef that was not very tasty or enjoyable to eat. However, the rest of the food was delicious incluidng the Fish & Chips, Vanilla Cheesecake and Chocolate Bomb. Please improve the quality of the burger - othwerwise everything was excellent.
Regards,
Tom
