The Ivy Marlow Garden Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Part of the ever growing Ivy chain and a look-a-like of the original with a slightly more summery, outdoors-comes-indoors lay-out. The food is the same as the other outlets, the setting is one of the better arrangements, once you get into the restaurant proper: best seating is away from the street. Hard to fault, even more difficult to praise. The food is well prepared and presented but it is not clever or exciting. The staff seem to change by the day (more than one visit in a short timespan) and most are poorly trained or have pulled the wool over the employer's eyes. The 'sommelier' had no knowledge of the wine being served let alone a wider knowledge and the manager barked orders across what is a noisy enough space. Marlow is fast filling with 'destination' eateries but I cannot help but compare the polite and efficient service at the nearby Cote where, all in all, the experience is better and considerably cheaper."
