The Ivy Soho Brasserie is located on Broadwick Street, one of Soho’s most popular areas.
Decorated with artworks inspired by Soho’s music scene, as well as William Blake (Broadwick’s most famous resident), the space is made up of a restaurant, bar, private dining room and terrace with Parisian-style seating. 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.
The Ivy Soho Brasserie’s look and feel has been created by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and notable features include an onyx bar, bronze pendant lighting, marble floor tiles, polished parquet and a mixture of burnt orange leather and velvet banquettes and bar stools.

Nice breakfast. The first waiter wasn’t as clued you about gluten free - even though I ordered the gluten free bread with the full English, I had to reconfirm with a manager to have the rest of the breakfast made GF.

Very noisy. Told after 1.75 hrs in restaurant that our table would be required in 20 mins. As a party of 6 table should have bern ours for 2.5 hrs. To be fair waiter did come back and say “ No rush”. A bit puzzling though.

It's a very stylish venue, and despite being late to our booking, the staff still managed to fit us in. The service was impeccable and very quick which was much appreciated as we were off to the theatre afterwards!

While as you would expect the standard of food was good, on this occasion the service was slow and there were just too many tables crammed in. I had to keep moving my chair to allow people out for the adjacent two tables to the point where it was intrusive.

This was a disappointing meal for Valentine’s Day. The service was awful, with my friend having to ask for things multiple times. They kept the wine away from the table and I had to ask for the remainder of it to be poured into our glasses when paying the bill as the waiter was not at all attentive and we would have left without finishing what we had paid for (or even be offered it). Their excuse was that it was Valentine’s Day and it was busy - a poor excuse. The food was good, but not worth the prices.

This was a Birthday treat for my wife. The whole experience was excellent. Tables nicely spaced, service attentive and friendly. The food was superb and served quickly. The atmosphere was great.
The restaurant is conveniently located to the theatres (we saw Mary Poppins at the Prince Albert Theatre) which was a 6 minute walk away.
I would highly recommend it and would look to go again next time in town.

Nice venue with plenty of room move around and tables not on top of each other. Good decor and pleasant bar for a pre-dinner drink if required. The service was good, with friendly and helpful staff at the check-in, bar and the table. The food was well prepared and presented, with appropriate sized portions. The house red was very drinkable and our glasses were regularly topped up by the attentive staff. A pleasant experience and good value for what we ate and drank.

For my boyfriends 30th birthday I decided to take him to the well known Soho Ivy brasserie. Mid way through his dessert he felt something sticky on his back. He had toffee sauce poured on him by accident all down a crisp white shirt. When I pointed this out to the waiter he got his manager (Luigi I think) who came over and had a look and didn’t say anything just looked at me. I pointed at my boyfriends back and the chair he was sat in was covered in sticky sauce. He said hang on one minute and came back with a damp napkin which he had put in water told him to lean forward over the table and started rubbing his back. Without even asking his permission. He then said I can take you to the bathroom to do more? At which point I laughed and said no please leave it. He then came back with the bill and I joked with him to take off dessert. Shocking service. We then go to use a voucher which I find the branch I brought it from haven’t even uploaded the money onto !!!! Shocking customer service. Will never bother again.

Cozy and nice place for everyday dining and fish and chips was good. But somehow the staff came to my table a lot so that I felt they wanted me to go out.

Very good service early evening, especially as we were going to the theatre after. So a great meal which came in plenty of time, and a fair price for central London.

Two and a half Small pieces of sweet potato in the curry and lashings of sauce is not good value at £13+. The ambience is amazing and so was the wine. When I complained about the small amount of good on my plate I was told it was the ’standard weight’ of sweet potato for the dish. I suggest you improve your vegetarian menu as theres a growing demand and your current menu is limited and ‘mean’. I had additional Microwaved sweet potato added but the meal was spoiled.

I would not recommend the Soho branch to anyone as the service was absolutely terrible. Our waitress decided to go on lunch mid way through serving us and did not mention it to us or pass us over to someone else. We had to constantly ask if we could order more food/drinks. Such a shame as it’s such a beautiful place and the other branches we have been to have been amazing!

Service was poor, drinks arrived after we had eaten our lunch. Ordered dessert and still waiting for it! Seemed to be a lot of staff doing nothing apart from talking to each other and the restaurant wasn’t particularly busy.
