Very busy, but a nice atmosphere, music was a bit repetitive and sounded very similar for the 2 hours we were there bit disappointed that out of 4 mussels 1 of them was closed, I did raise it with staff who informed manager who came to apologise.

Great service, the waiter gave us some options for food intolerances. The rib eye steak tasted amazing.
Very busy Saturday afternoon but this added to the lovely atmosphere.
Lovely to see a lot of staff on duty.
Will definitely be back.

Amazing atmosphere. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was good and the setting was beautiful the decor was incredible and I'd recommend it to anyone. They gave my daughter a cake with a candle in it for her birthday, the attention to detail was great and these little touches make the dining experience so much better.

Fantasic service (our waiter was Dan) and lovely atmosphere in the room. We were there for lunch - it was very leisurely, completely unrushed and just what we wanted. We wondered if the experience would live up to the hype - and it did, no question.

The only thing wrong was they forgot to bring our shared starter but they did take it off the bill. It would not stop me going again though.

Hard to find enough superlatives for this place. The staff were amazing, friendly, competent and ready to go the extra mile. The decor was stunning. The music gave the terrace just the right vibe. Actually love that there was a DJ playing. The food was absolutely divine and the cocktails...well just see for yourself! Even the toilets were breathtakingly fabulous! I am so pleased that my daughters and I have been here and I cannot wait to come again!
Thank you for having us!

Everything was great except a rude very member of staff at the door and bouncer when i told him we had a table booked and our girlfriend was in there waiting for me his reply was sarcastically ‘ you ain’t fooling me ‘ let the whole thing down and set the night off to a bad start trying to belittle customers due to there gender

This was our third visit to the Ivy in about 18 months. The food and service have always been excellent but this time the music level was so loud we could barely hold a conversation. We were seated near an outside door which was constantly opening/closing and it was quite a cool evening. Some people were also using their phones to read the menu due to the low light level. This won't stop us coming back for one more try though....

The service was outstanding. Our waiter Sam was really friendly but extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made some fantastic recommendations. His passion and enthusiasm shined through and made a very refreshing change from service received in many other establishments. The decor and ambiance was awesome! The food was amazing - absolutely delicious. Dropped a star on the rating because the monkfish & prawn curry only had 2 prawns & 2 small chunks of monkfish & too much sweet potato - but it was very tasty and well presented.
It was our daughters birthday and she was presented with a miniature cake with no fuss and made to feel very special - perfect! A lovely touch.
Overall we loved the whole experience and can’t wait to visit again.
