We had a lovely time 4 ladies that lunched. Atmosphere and decor was lovely. Food was nice but nothing special. We asked for rare/pink steaks they were medium on arrival. But still tasted nice.

A special lunch with my daughter. It was busy which was unusual due to the last 12 months so I wondered if I’d feel strange but the atmosphere was lovely and we didn’t have to wait for anything despite how busy it was. Cara our waitress was excellent - made our visit even better - from beginning to end service and food excellent.

Disappointed with the service, although we took a while to order our first drinks, we hadn’t seen each other for a long time & was catch up. We asked to have a few minutes longer. 15 minutes later, so 30 minutes from sitting down, we had our drinks order taken. Then we waited another 20 minutes for our drinks, which came just before our meal…. So no time to enjoy them before food! Having a cocktail before a meal and not with the meal. Really disappointing.
The food was nice, presentation good to. However, we didn’t want to have dessert, so opted for a dessert cocktail. Then, as soon as we were finished, we were given the bill and told the table was wanted. I know this was the case, however, it wasn’t our fault we didn’t have more time before to enjoy an apéritif! Very disappointing experience. Been previously and this was very poor indeed. I think it was over booked & the staff obviously were spread too thin.

Some of the COVID guidelines still in place such as staff wearing masks, sanitiser on table. No longer take temp on arrival so would have liked more space between table as it was busy. Food as lovely as ever, always so well presented.

Fantastic, superb service and the food was delicious, amazing cocktails expensive but delicious. Definitely sit downstairs as acoustics great can hear the background music and conversation around your own table but not others so brilliant for groups, upstairs very loud though wouldn’t have wanted to have sat upstairs.

Really poor. Came for an engagement celebration, balloon was confiscated off us, flowers we were told we couldn’t have and the restaurant refused to have a bottle of bubbles out waiting for us. Complete killjoys. The table next to us actually booed the manager as he removed our balloon. Food was poor and then we were hurried out and told we were approaching our allotted time.

First time at Ivy Leeds since start of pandemic. Lots of greeters and serving staff who were rather too attentive at times. Our starters were given to the wrong members of our party despite checking when it was served. We had to remind the staff that we were still waiting for the tea to accompany our scones/ cream tea. Despite this we had a great time. Think the staff were desperate to do a good job and overall they did so.
