Located in the historic Bishopsgate Gardens – one of the City’s few garden squares – and next-door to the famous St. Botolph church, The Ivy City Garden brings the familiar luxury of The Ivy, West Street to the City of London.

The Ivy Collection’s first site in the City of London features an all-day-dining menu, private dining room, and hidden garden offering a tranquil al fresco escape from the hustle and bustle of the Square Mile. The restaurant boasts a summer water fountain, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows opening onto a hidden garden with its own bar. The Ivy City Garden’s outdoor space has a retractable roof, allowing diners to enjoy the garden all year-round.

Guests are also be able to enjoy our resident DJ; hitting the decks Friday from 6pm to close, all day Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Great food, perfectly cooked scallops and the black cod was one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten, and trust me, I've eaten a lot!

Very pleasant venue. We were welcomed at the reception and shown to our table. Unfortunatley no one offerred to take our coats so we sat with them over the backs of our chairs. Other than that service was excellent and all satff were very pleasant. Decor was stunning and lighting subdued. Toilets were upstairs although there was disabled access downstairs. Pricing was good for the area the restaurant is in. Food was delicious and couldn't be faulted. Thank you. An enjoyable afternoon spent there as it was quiet but this was due to the breaking news regarding Corona Virus.

We had a lovely lunch to celebrate my birthday, the staff even came out with a small cake with a candle on it for me when dessert was served which was a lovely touch.
Food was really lovely, we will return!

A perfect blend of quality without being to over the top.
Fast service which is what you want from a City restaurant, but they don't rush you either.
A good choice on the menu with a high level of quality that you would expect.
Good value.

Thank you. It was a lovely lunch. I would like to single out our waitress - I can't remember her name and please would you look into my booking so you know. She was fantastic. Absolutely lovely, really helpful and we felt great about the way she looked after us. It doesn't happen enough. Please thank her from me as I made the booking.
I think you have a great brand. The restaurant looks amazing so when you walk in you feel you are somewhere special and that you are going to have a good time.
The only critical feedback is the acoustics are tough. It's very, very noisy. Fortunately we were seated on the edge partly in the conservatory and it was a relief that 2 of my guests had to drop out because as a table of four, we were able to hear each other. I don't know what you can do about that. But otherwise thank you. It was really fantastic!

Having booked more than 3 weeks ahead and requesting a conservatory table, to be seated alongside a walkway and service area immediately behind wasn't what I had in mind with a lack of privacy.

Table was far too small for 2 people and being seated on equivalent of garden chairs wasn't the most comfortable.

Main course Monkfish and prawn curry was excellent but desserts were poor and expensive.

Would to have to think twice about going again.

Lovely ambiance for a Saturday night with friends. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Wine was good but very expensive. Make sure you have checked the menu and prices before you go so it isn’t a shock. Not something I could afford to do too often but a lovely place to go for a treat. I would recommend.

Choose the restaurant as it was close to liverpool street station and was easy walking distance, it was busy but service and food were great.

Amazing! The service/attention to detail was top notch. The food and drinks were also amazing! We were visiting for an anniversary and were given a small dessert which was a lovely touch! We all had a fantastic time, such nice decor and feel. It feels like a very special dining experience!

Not bad, but nothing special. Packed restaurant (no apparent pandemic fears) but the food was average this time. The fish and chips was a little under-cooked and not piping hot and the menu perhaps needs a refresh. My fourth visit (and not my last) but not the best one.

I love the sourdough crusty bread and butter here, so delicious. We ordered from the special menu and I had the truffle risotto with scallops and Parmesan foam which was delicious. I had the lemon meringue Alaska for dessert which wasn’t so appetising. There was a table of drunk men close to us who were obnoxious but left an hour after we got in. Good food and a lively restaurant with a large menu so there is something for everyone.
