On Sunday March 20th 2016, my daughter Jacqui took me to The Ivy, West Street, London. The restaurant had been on my bucket list forever. After a train journey from Northamptonshire we arrived at 12noon for lunch. From the moment we sat at our table to our eventual departure, the food and service were second to none. I would like to take this opportunity especially, to thank Will (from Brazil) for his amazing kindness in seeing my delight at being there, showed us around the upstairs premises and obligingly offered to take a couple of pictures of my daughter and myself on her mobile phone. How great was that.

Thank you again for making it a very special day.

The Ivy is wonderful. It oozes class without being stuffy or pretentious. The restaurant is cosy but not cramped. The food is simple but stylish and always utterly delicious. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and service is efficient without being rushed. And the prices are about 50% of those charged by most other top-end London restaurants. I cannot fault it. It really is lovely.

It as always been a dream of mine to eat at The Ivy, and it came true on 2nd Nov. My husband and I went to celebrate our "day we met anniversary" ! it was 45 yrs this year. The food was heaven on a plate, the staff were so so friendly and couldn't do enough, made me feel very special, so thanks Ivy for making my day !!

Been to The Ivy a couple of times a year for the last 8 years, and last tuesday when I went for lunch was the best meal I have had in a long time, together with excellent wines and service. The Spinach and avacado salad was to die for, thanks for putting that salad back on to the menu as that was one of my favourites, then I had the salmon which was delicous and the Ice berries in hot white chocolate sauce was heaven.

Thanks again

i have been going to the ivy for years and i love it. when i'm in london, which is usually once a year for a few days, i must visit the ivy. the food service staff atmosphere the whole package is excellent. they also own other restaurants and the staff say i should try one of their other restaurants but to me i am loyal to the ivy. i have just returned from london yesterday after being in london for 4 days and i went to the ivy for lunch and dinner. long may it reign. you must try it, out you wont be dissapointed. 10 out of 10 once again, thank you.

A Rather Unusual Chinaman

A Rather Unusual Chinaman

Thursday, June 30, 2011 - The menu reads like that off a gastropub. Simple hearty dishes with a few cheery additions, but unfortunately the actual delivery was slightly lacklustre and smacked of 'make do'. My starter of mozzarella was pleasant enough, with an avocado pesto adding a nice and interesting dimension, but ultimately all tasting a bit ordinary. Duck was also ok. A simple confit with some well cooked new potatoes on the side. Filling and a decent enough lunch, but the whole experience left me feeling somewhat underwhelmed.
