Lovely venue. Service could be more attentive, food average for the price you pay but still a very enjoyable experience because of the lovely surroundings. Would return but just for drinks next time.

Very relaxed atmosphere from arrival until leaving. Set over 3 floors all of which are tastefully decorated. We ate on the 3rd floor restaurant which on sunnier days has the glass roof retracted. All floors appear to have bar areas so if you just want a drink, you can as long as they are not too busy. Food was really good but our drinks at the bar were a little underwhelming. Still a great place to go though

Booked for my birthday. When we arrived we were asked who was celebrating their birthday but there was no other acknowledgement during the night. Other establishments have acknowledged your birthday with at least a cake.
We were also advised to have a drink at the bar whilst our table was getting ready. We stood for 20 minutes next to an empty table which we were finally seated at?

Just amazing! The decor is stunning the staff are all so polite and the food was just some of the best I've ever had. Also really reasonably prices. To some people it may seem expensive, but I feel you are getting your moneys worth out of the whole experience of the restaurant. I will defiantly be returning.

Since my first visit where the food was exceptional, the menu this time seemed to have been reduced so not quite the variety I was expecting. Food still delicious and service exemplary.

Had a fantastic anniversary dinner at the Ivy. The service was impeccable. We booked at the Roof Terrace and changed our mind to Ivy Asia; the lovely staff had no qualms getting us a table. Thanks to Moston for looking after us. We will be back soon.

This restaurant is absolutely beautiful - we had a lovely lunch last week. The staff are so polite and friendly nothing is too much trouble. We have now had lunch on each floor and this could now possibly be our favourite with Ivy Asia as very close second. Thank you so much for a lovely dining experience - we will be back as soon as possible.

Afternoon tea for 4 people on a Thursday.

Food was good but we were squeezed in like sardines, a tiny table in the middle of the roof garden, very uncomfortable and ridiculous trying to get all the afternoon tea elements onto the table.

Service was friendly but very slow, and there was a significant gap between bringing the 3rd and 4th afternoon tea which was not ideal. We were told this was because of a "no shellfish" request, but there was no shellfish on the menu...

Waiter was great but the food was incorrect. We asked for the Milanese without salad / pesto etc on top. Came with, we sent it back but they didn’t re-make and instead simply covered the Milanese with Garlic butter to hide the taste. The shepherds pie and fillet steak (medium rare) wasn’t kept warm and both were luke warm when returned with the 2 other dishes. The fillet steak wasn’t medium rare and was stone cold after eating half and so half was wasted...
acknowledged by the Manager who gave us free deserts - we didn’t want deserts at lunchtime?!? Not what I expect for a lunchtime celebration meal at the Ivy. Maybe at Frankie and Benny’s (no offence) but £200 for 4, this was very poor.... place was beautiful though

Lovely decor and food was really nice, not too expensive. The waiters were nice but I think they must have been short staffed , we had to wait ages for our drinks (twice)

Asked in advance for a 'nice romantic table' as it was my wife's birthday and our anniversary but was given the worst table in the house right next to the servers station with staff constantly coming backwards and forwards right next to us. Asked to be moved which they did to a much better table but considering the place was only half full why didn't they seat us there in the first place! Also, our daughter phoned to ask if she could purchase a bottle of wine to put on the table for us as an anniversary surprise and they wouldn't let her. Bizarre! Food and service were ok but the shine had been taken off for us I'm afraid.

Excellent service and food . Beautiful setting . We had the table by the kitchen door which was a little distracting ( I guess that’s just the luck of the draw) although I did book ages ago so just unlucky I guess. The little birthday cake was a nice touch . Portion size of the Shepard’s pie was surprising , tasted great but needed to be bigger tbh for a main .

I went out with my sister for some afternoon tea, I’ve been to the Ivy a few times for dinner so this was was a little bit different. The portion sizes were small but that was expected as afternoon tea portions usually are.

The scones were delicious and the strawberries were a lovely touch. It would have been nice If there were more sandwiches for those who prefer the savoury side of afternoon tea but overall it was beautifully presented and really delicious and I will be coming again in the near future.
