Disappointing overall visit here.
Given wrong menu at start, ordered item then 10 minutes after ordering, I was told that I couldn't order from this menu and was given new menu

5 mins later I was told I could order from the menu. When the food arrived, the waiter knocked my cocktail over the food - had to go back to kitchen.

To top off the evening there was service charge of 12 euro for 3 people.

Disappointing evening. Will not return here unfortunately.

Had an amazing brunch here with friends. I couldn't fault the staff or set up. Everyone was so attentive, alterations to orders were no issue whatsoever, and the set up felt very Covid safe. I will definitely be heading back soon.

Food lovely. Gorgeous place. Some of the staff were unfriendly and were rushing us a lot! Staff at the hosts stand were much nicer and much more professional. Table service definitely needs work as they were quite rude but overall is a gorgeous place.

Fab setting, so pretty outdoor dining. Immediate staff are brill, seemed under pressure and a little under staffed. Front of house quite pretentious but expected at the Ivy. We got two starters and two sides and it was plenty!!! Food is delicious but cocktails are laughable, so over priced! Having said all that, i rate it and always go back so defo worth it for a visit

Food and drinks were lovely, staff were good all round however experience was slightly dampened as a woman approached us and multiple other tables from the street while we were dining outdoors to ask for money to buy a cup of tea and was reluctant to leave us alone when we told her we didn’t carry cash and staff weren’t around at the time to stop her, but overall experience was good aside from that!

Dining at the Ivy is about the stunning space they have created. Being outdoors, with no heating is not the same experience.

Lovely seating area, food was great with plenty of variety to suite any budget, easy to go on a budget or a blow out. Service and setting was excellent. Only negative to the entire evening was the wine. House wine was awful so we had to choose a higher than expected price to get a decent bottle. Quite unacceptable to offer a house wine for €36/39 which was undrinkable, need to provide a better wine list, better wines and better prices to suit the menu.

We were nicely surprised at our experience of dining at the Ivy for a friend's birthday. The food was gorgeous (asparagus starter on quinoa and grilled halloumi on couscous with aubergine and labneh main) and service on the whole, was really good. I'd recommend.

Lovely ambience, although outdoor dining the set up outside distracts you from sitting on the side of the street and makes you feel like you are in a courtyard.
