"The refurbished Ivy was well worth a visit. Food good and the atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious."
"a lesson in how to improve a legend!"
"After several years away, and what I understand is a change of ownership again, this visit proved The Ivy remains one of London's best dining options. Overall excellent evening with a perfect balance of 'very good' in all respects."
"Great clubby atmosphere and cosy dining room - the menu offers a lot of rich comfort food (often leading to some weird combinations of courses), ranging from very good to average (but lacking consistency), but the service is a bit variable - from hypercharming to dismissive."
"The ambience and service are superb but the food seems to have lost some of its verve and originality since the reopening"
"Ambience of prosperity, and assured and efficient service. The food was above average in quality, and don't fill yourself on a substantial starter if you have the roast chicken main course. That classic dish will prove to be rich and filling. The restaurant has benefited from its revamp, and the dining experience is one of style."
There will also be some lighter options such as the Super Seed Bowls; raw superfood-packed bowls of chia, flax and oats, soaked for maximum nutritional gain and served with an option of dairy-free milks, plus plenty of fresh fruit. A selection of homemade breads will form the ‘Bakery’ section, accompanied by nut butters, crunchy gianduja spread or traditional jams, and for those feeling more indulgent, Waffles, Pancakes and French Toast will be available.
Coffee beans for that morning caffeine injection are sourced from family-run British roaster, Street&Co. A bespoke Peruvian espresso and a medium roast Kenyan filter coffee will be offered alongside a range of specialist teas from The East India Tea Company, plus fresh juices. Breakfast will be served Mon-Fri, 8-10.30 am.
The Ivy was given a sprucing up last year and reopened on 1 June 2015 after a major refurb which saw the renewal of almost everything – with the exception of the iconic stained glass windows. The landmark restaurant turns 100 this year, and it seems there is plenty in store for the old girl's centenary celebrations.
