Decided to treat me and my wife to an anniversary meal at the Ivy once again, it was perfect. Food was excellent, atmosphere was good, service was excellent. And not too much of a dent to my bank balance.

From the warm welcome, to the friendly goodbye, our experience was wonderful. We had a lovely booth (although next time would request a table in the rotunda to compare), and the service was impeccable. Lots of great food options, especially fish dishes, and the steak dish one of chose was cooked to perfection. The salt crusted sourdough to begin was served warm with salted butter-if I had the tiniest criticism of the whole evening it would be nice to have the choice of unsalted, but I realise this is personal preference.

Overpriced lunch for what we had. Hamburger chips skimpy salad, followed by 6 truffle balls filled with salted caramel, 2 large glasses of house wine, 2 cups of Cappuccino £66.83
The burger was dry, chips dry coffee was lovely.

I enjoyed my meal yesterday evening, after all it was at the Ivy. The room is spectacular, the service brisk and friendly, our fellow diners sociable.
The food was okay-ish. Very much brasserie style, uncomplicated and good ingredients.
What was a disappointment for me was my starter of crispy duck. It wasn’t crispy but hard and dry. It seemed to me like the outer bits of the bird, which, when roasted were over cooked and usually you would throw them away. I’m not sure why I ate them, but it being a festive occasion, our 59th wedding anniversary, I didn’t want to spoil the occasion.
When our waiter asked if I had enjoyed the dish I merely replied « not crispy, more like chewy » and left it like that. He didn’t offer to replace it and I ought to have sent it back.

Wonderful experience. The ambience was soothing and calm. The staff very attentive but not overpowering.
The price was enough for a treat but not too expensive so you could do it on a regular basis.

Food and service were excellent as was the greeting. Loved the touch to celebrate our anniversary. Was offered water as we were being seated but wasn’t aware this was chargeable and should have been made more clear or 1st bottle as gratis.

Overall a lovely dining experience

A little pricy, particularly for wine.
Very good waiter service.
Very good food.
Table near window one of the better ones from a noise point of news.
Noticed that the tables under the dome were very noisy and acoustics poor.
