Open seven days a week, the modern British menu will be available from dawn till dusk for local workers, residents, shoppers and visitors to enjoy. Being located in Soho, the brasserie will have a DJ spinning music every Friday and Saturday from 7pm and on weekends during brunch until close.

Service and atmosphere was perfect, food it was a bit of a disaster, pasta cold and with virtually no lobster, risoto portion was so small that you can eat it all in two mouthfuls, which would be ok if it was not so bland.
Steak tartare was also bland but not as bad as the risotto, the problem there is that we ordered some bread which only came once I had already finished.
As I said was Spanish waitress was lovely and very apologetic about our experience
Not good which is a shame as I was a regular but not now any longer

Enjoyed a lovely breakfast on Sunday morning; excellent scrambled eggs, but wish they had buttered the toast as it was a bit dry. Good coffee, excellent service, beautiful art-deco surroundings. Would visit again

Lovely food and fabulous venue as always but the service was shockingly slow... it wasn’t particularly busy but it took ages to get our second drink. We ordered a glass of wine after our meal and it to nearly 25 mins to arrive. From requesting to receiving the bill it too 45 mins! Really disappointing as have had lovely experiences in the past

A definitive Soho brasserie reinvented. Great service and seem less evening. Whoever is ensuring the standards here are met and consistent in delivering is doing a great job. A chain is the hardest thing to deliver in the F&B world and the Ivy is a rare success. Don’t open too many and keep hold of your team! thanks for the evening.

We called up to say we'd like to come in earlier than we had booked. That was no problem. We were looked after very well, and the food was great. The restaurant has a lovely buzzing atmosphere.

The food quality and drinks were good but not outstanding, albeit the room was packed and loud and full of atmosphere. We had a great night, only disappointment was that the sauce for my steak was ice cold so asked for a hot replacement, and waited over ten minutes- by this time my main was also cold. Expected more considering the price, probably won’t return.

Delicious food, as with all the Ivy restaurants. But our waiter was rude, forgetful and distracted. Even when we gently pointed out that we had been waiting a long time for our food and drinks, and that we felt a little neglected, nothing changed. At the end of the evening, we spoke to the manager and said we weren’t happy to pay a service charge, considering our service had been so disappointing. He removed the charge, then presented the slightly reduced bill to us as though he had done something exceptionally generous, rather than remove an optional fee. We were quite baffled by that. Still love the Ivy but sadly not this branch.

As always the food was exceptional. Unfortunately, the service was lacking somewhat on this visit. We received our starters before our drinks had arrived. We had to ask several times for our wine to be poured and also for more drinks. It seemed there was only 1 waiter on our section so this may have been why. Just a little disappointing.

Expensive (for me) restaurant but the nice food and spacious restaurant made it worth it. Has a vegetarian & vegan menu, but only 1 Vegan main.

We had good food but that's the only good thing about our visit unfortunately.....
We had to wait over 45 minutes for our starters, nearly an hour for our main courses with no communication on these delays or even an offer of bread inbetween...it even just took a long time to place our order.
I asked the GM a few times what's going on asked about the delays on our food (it was busy but by no means at full capacity) - it was only then he went and found out and offered us no apology or explanation. I had to get up and find him to do this a couple of times, another couple of times trying to catch his eye to politely ask without making a scene.

The food and wine was good and we drank a lot more than anticipated due to the long waiting times - overall a pretty terrible experience which was a shame as this was the only family meal we have had in over a year due to 2 of the party living overseas!

We will not be back.

I booked this for 4 of us for my mum’s 80th birthday for the pre theatre set meal and it absolutely lived up to the hype. Lovely decor and ambiance, attentive service and all the food we had was absolutely delicious and great value. I would definitely go back - lovely for a special occasion.

Good food. But. Plan on being ignored, sitting for long periods of time without service and chasing down servers and repetitively asking them for the food and drinks you ordered.

Staff was all friendly and the space was adorable. It was tasteful but not overly formal or garish, casual enough for an everyday meal or low-key special occasion. Great cocktail selection and a good range of food for a variety of dietary restrictions. In terms of cost, it was a bit less than comparable cuisine/restaurants.
