Fantastic place to dine.... Temperatures taken on arrival.... sanitizers on the tables and in the toilet areas... very very clean and great staff, everyone took their time to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and we couldn't fault the food or the service. Highly recommend The Ivy.

Cocktails not fruity or tasty enough for me and the names were insignificant and confusing, therefore over priced and over presented (far, far to much ice in the glass - on holiday that would be a cheap trick and out of date now) Starter not enough toasted bread but the Pate was very good. Excellent fillet steak and accompanying sauce, chips excellent too. The chocolate bomb and strawberry sundae excellent. Overall very good but the optional 12.5% service charge still rankles me - it is still not clear enough as to what happens to this money which is a huge amount on a bill - presented like this I never pay it anywhere but will always tip good service direct to the waiter.

Unfortunately there was a large group of drunk females who had to be told to respect the other guests several times which spoiled the atmosphere somewhat. Luckily we didn't have to endure it for too long though and the food and service was excellent.

It was lovely, we really enjoyed ourselves and the food was delicious.

My only light gripes are that there was a table of ladies who were so so loud and we were struggling to hear each other. A member of staff did ask them to keep the noise down though. We also would have liked to stay a bit longer for more drinks but I understand you needed the table.
All in all we had a lovely evening and we will definitely be back.

I visited the ivy for lunch and found the food and service quite disappointing. I specifically asked for a side order of vegetables to be cooked throughly for my mum but this request was ignored, the broccoli was so hard she had to leave it. My main, a chicken salad consisted of iceberg lettuce, quinoa with chicken and accompanied with a sauce. It could have been knocked together very easily for a fiver. I found the whole experience to be casual dining at fine dining prices. Don’t believe the hype.

A wonderful child free lunch out. Gorgeous food and beautiful wine. The ambience was total bliss. 4* for service as waiter dropped my food as he was putting it down. A minor mistake which spoilt the presentation but didn’t affect the taste.

A really pleasant evening although the upstairs was closed due to restrictions on distancing etc. Waiter very attentive and friendly - food was lovely but we felt portions could have been a bit bigger, especially on the sides.

We were made to wait over 30 minutes at the bar for our our booked table. Bar staff just ignored us, no smiles nothing. Lady greeting was lovely and apologised for the wait, service was slow, again no smiles or chatting. I had to wait ages to get the bill, again just being ignored. I advised on the booking it was my daughters birthday and would like something to mark this on her pudding but nothing came however the table next to us got a candle and message. We arrived at 1.20pm and didn’t leave till 4pm. This took me over my parking which cost me a fortune and the meal was also very expensive. I don’t like having a service charge added automatically to my bill, I just paid and left but will not be returning again. I normally go to Harrogate which is outstanding and feel the ivy in Leeds is no different to most other places I like to dine, it certainly wasn’t an experience like I get in Harrogate. Food was outstanding shame about everything else!!!

For a wonderful meal out in great surroundings you could not find anywhere better in Leeds City Center. The staff were very conscientious without being overbearing and the food was both appealing to the eye as well as the palate. Will definitely be returning.
