The Ivy Brasserie, Spinningfields
We arrived at 8:10pm for our scheduled 8:15pm table for our daughter’s 18th birthday. Having been made to stand outside for 15 minutes in the cold we were ushered inside and made to wait in the foyer for a further 15 minutes. After complaining about the wait we were shown to our table at 8:45pm. This left just 1hr 15 mins of our daughters special night. To say we felt rushed is an understatement - we appreciate that it was the last night before lockdown and it would be shutting it’s doors at 10pm, however we felt unfairly treated having spent a lot of money on a meal for 4.
The overall experience was good, it just felt very rushed. We ordered our main and it came within 3 minutes. The staff seemed very stressed but this was understandable due to how much pressure they was under being the last night before lockdown. I definitely would return as it’s one of my favourite restaurants but out of all the times I’ve been this was probably my least favourite.
Understandable pressure the night before lockdown - but asked to leave with half a pint left really left a poor impression. Lovely decor, drinks slightly overpriced, and food tasty but nothing to write home about. Given how much we spent - to be essentially turfed out after no more than 90 minutes.. wouldn’t recommend
Just perfect. Took my Mum for her 60th and the food, service and ambience was just sensational. Highly recommend.
Excellent attentive service.
Small birthday cake and candle presented to my daughter without prompting.
All Covid safety precautions carried out and everywhere spotlessly clean.
Will definitely return when business (hopefully!)resumes on 2nd December
Top service, an exceedingly good experience. Would definitely recommend.
Absolutely fantastic!!!!!! I shall be going back as soon as the lockdown has ended
Tables were a bit too close together for my liking, definitely closer than 2m to the next table.
Poor service - Told the waitress we had already eaten elsewhere and would get some starters to take away. After ordering she then said we can’t take anything away. On the way out saw other customers with take away boxes with food inside! They were told they couldn’t bring food in (cake for a birthday) and that they could take food away. We were told we can bring food in (cake) but couldn’t take food away! Clearly need to decide what their policy is!
What an amazing place! Staff are super friendly and professional, food is amazing and the atmosphere is brilliant! Would highly recommend
Our waiter gave us great customer service! Was very friendly and always made sure we were happy with our food and drinks.
Fantastic service from our waitress who has served us before and was great both times!food and drink perfect as always.the perfect birthday celebration at a hard time for everybody
Gorgeous atmosphere and fantastic service yet again at the Ivy. Of course, the very delicious food never fails to disappoint.
Thank you for making my birthday dinner absolutely amazing. Food and service is the best around town.
Good place to eat, good atmosphere, good service, value for money depending on you and your pocket.
We had a lovely experience, definitely would return
Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere
Lovely visit, thought the variety of dishes on the menu were a little boring, but we put that down the the COVID situation, and the wastage you are other establishments must face!
We love the friendly staff and the ambiance. Will be back!
Fantastic experience. This was our first time and loved it. We will be back.
So sad that our visit to The Ivy was just three days before the lockdown. Nevertheless it proved another memorable occasion for my wife and I and we look forward to returning when the regulations are relaxed.
The food was excellent and well presented, the service was exemplary and surroundings beautiful
Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. Food was quite reasonable portions.
Not rush people off their table and keep walking past eye balling us!
Outstanding food and service as always - Thank You 👏👏
Fab food and service could have stayed for hours (if allowed) 😊
Me and my partner booked for my son and his girlfriend for her 18th, they loved the whole experience
Thoroughly enjoyable meal with my family
Brilliant restaurant fantastic staff food amazing
The waiters are absolutely fantastic and friendly (the male ones - the women workers are a bit stuck up) lovely food. Amazing interior design.
Lovely birthday treat. Never had breakfast there before will definitely go again.
Fantastic as always, our favourite restaurant and what a great show in for Halloween
Excellent service with special attention paid to my friends birthday. We enjoyed the hallowe’en entertainment
Great food, great service and a great evening. Loved the Halloween entertainment which provided a really nice touch and the little birthday cake provided for us as I was celebrating my birthday was very much appreciated!
A fabulous Halloween evening. Great entertainment, atmosphere, food and service.
Amazing food and great service the staff really look after you!
Disappointed one young couple stood in reception neither wearing a mask. Also we had not been informed prior to arrival that you could only access the table at the exact time it was booked and could only wait in the reception area a maximum of 15 minutes before the table was booked. Was refused entry to the building until 15 minutes prior the table booking. An email or text with that information would have made the visit more pleasant .
Very enjoyable experience at the Ivy. Food and drinks were very nice
We went for Halloween, it was incredible!! The decorations outside, special Halloween cocktails and deserts. Honestly one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been too.
Staff are so thoughtful and really attentive.
Beautiful decor, pleasant efficient staff, good menu choice, lovely ambience, drinks rather expensive! However I would definitely visit again
