The Ivy Soho Brasserie
We had a lovely time, great people and great food as always.
Great decor, good food but service a bit slower than expected. It was quiet and Sunday so I get that staff is a bit relaxed but could be bit more attentive. It was anyway good early dinner. Worth to visit and for sure will be back.
Service not good. Had steak and chips but the chips were yesterdays re heated, awful. Sent them back and they said that's the way they cook them.
Fantastic food, excellent service, great ambience for late night dining and a really good value meal!
Good vibe and setting. Very average food and service.
e' sempre un piacere tornare alla IVY, dove un eccellente cibo e' accompagnato da una assistenza cortese ed efficiente.
A great disappointment. The noise level was so bad it was impossible to have a conversation. My Lobster Linguini could have been cardboard.
Love this place. Was not my first time and won’t be my last. Superb for catching up with friends to birthdays.
We had the pre theatre menu. The decor and atmosphere were great, although the steak was unseasoned, chewy and tasted mainly of smoke. Service charge was added, plus a £3.95 supplement for the steak, which made the whole meal bad value. I wish I had dined elsewhere.
The food was very good!
However I’m a bit disappointed with the organisation in regards to my partner’s birthday.
When we arrived and gave our name, the lady at reception revealed that she knew it was my partner ‘s birthday, which ruined the surprise. Also, they said that at the end of tue dinner they would come to the table with a slice of cake or something else, with a candle for his birthday, but they didn’t.
It was a little disappointing.
As usual a perfect afternoon spent in my favourite restaurant. I mislaid my shopping bag and the staff went to such great lengths to look for me. Outstanding ambiance and service absolutely love this place.
The black Cod is always a lovely dish - when it’s packed it’s a bit over crowded
Excellent. Perfect from start to finish. :-) :-) :-)
Great service and delicious food. The soup was incredible
The food and service was amazing would recommend to anyone I will be returning very soon
Superb food, well presented and good value. Service was excellent. Seating was very comfortable. We weren't rushed at all and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Once again a very enjoyable meal with excellent service
There are many Ivy’s now and they are priced very sensibly all with magnificent decor. The food and service is excellent.......but portions are now much less than before which is a shame. Overall good value for a top chain of restaurants.
Did a reservation for 7, they obviously know because they took my credit card details on reservation. However when we arrived they were expecting me to have a guest number of 2, OUTRAGEOUS and rude in my opinion! Long wait, not even menu were given after we repeatedly asked for it. Overall we waited for about an hour. Coffee took half an hour to serve. Staff are very courteous and polite but obviously not enough coverage for a restaurant this big. Feel sorry for the staff around a business area where I could see many are having business breakfasts, the long waiting time is not acceptable. We refused to pay service charge and it was accepted. Food were priced ok, not unacceptable, food choices were ok, will like to see more vegan option. Will not go back for business breakfast or lunch. Will go back for leisure, maybe.
Exceptional service and very friendly/helpful staff
I hosted a business lunch here and found it to be perfect. The noise level was minimal, food and service was to high standard.
Great meal. Service and food both excellent. Would recommend!
Very good food in a nice but vibrant atmosphere. Nice, modern and relaxed interior. Very good and friendly service.
Fantastic lunch. Service was amazing and the food was delicious.
Great service. Great location. But loud
Loved it, but we had trouble finding it please look at directions for your web site
Food was delicious. Guy at the reception/concierge nice and helpful.
Absolutely incredible experience; great food and even better service.
My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. Lovely venue, very friendly, welcoming, staff. Very attentative, catered to our every need. Delicious food, The chef even sent out a complimentary birthday desert which was a surprise treat for us!
Highly recommend, close proximity to theatres.
We had the scallops and classic fish and chips . Excellent service and food
great food and great experience. friendly and welcoming.
Whilst the food was excellent the service was patchy, we had to ask 2 different wait staff twice for ice, a glass of red wine didn’t appear until we repeatedly asked for it & the side orders didn’t arrive together. Great food but the staff let the experience down by appearing undertrained
This was 30th trip was highly looking forward to dining in the ivy , as we have been to are local one many of times in Manchester we knew we would be in safe hands- but to all 8 girls this was disappointing. First they give us all different menus, second are drinks took 40 mins to arrive, third the starters arrived but missed one out, four one the girls mains came out wrong , further 10 mins she waited while the rest us had food to be told they had ran out of the request meal- she was left with nothing - they took off a round of drinks and said she wouldn’t have to pay for
Her main!!! That never came! Once the bill was settled they also charge us for starter that never arrived- the only thing the manager “Callum Neild” did was give us a business card and said next time we could of champagne, which none of the girls live in London this was a special occasion for my 30th which the restaurant was aware, it was upsetting and left all girls feeling deflated and one left with no meal at all. Could of received better service in a weatherspoons than what we where given in this restaurant and for more than half the price off the 300 pound bill we had at the end. Disgraceful when you think off it like that not the service we expected.
Really fresh, delicious menu - a struggle to choose!
We enjoyed our visit and the meal was excellent - however it was DJ night and although the music was fine - it was too loud. I'm not deaf but you just have to shout across the table to be heard. Personally, I really don't like this - so unnecessary. I suppose that I am in a minority - sign of the times!
First comment was about vacating the table after 1.5 hours then 15 minutes before drinks order. Just finished dessert when time was up. Offered stools at bar but standing room only. Menu good and cocktails reasonably priced.
My sisters came first time to London , I chose ivy to make them feel special .
I was disappointed as I didn’t really feel we were looked after.
We didn’t pay service charge , the waiter didn’t even ask why .
Fantastic place to eat. Dined outside for brunch with friends - delicious food, great atmosphere and lovely staff.
Lovely restaurant, good service, buzzy place.
They seem to have a problem chilling wine. On several occasions the Rose wine has been barely cold. And what is it with putting your wine in a bucket miles away from your table and having to ask the waiter time and time again to fill the glasses on the table. Sort it out Ivy.
Also, VERY disappointed they are STILL using plastic straws in their cocktails - not very acceptable any more in this day and age, is it?
Unfortunately both the staff members that served us were not particularly friendly and at one point actually quite rude. We felt rushed by the end and I'm afraid it did affect the experience which was a pre-wedding celebration with a friend.
