    Food is consistently good at this branch of the Ivy. Service too! Last night was a catch up with an old friend and we thought a Monday would be less noisy than usual but no, a nearby table celebrating a birthday was deafening and the air conditioning was far too high. Our waitress was lovely if you could catch her, she was so busy so I endured the cold for too long. Someone should be checking that out with customers!

    Marvellous experience but unfortunately our table was next to a staff service point where the manager was sternly and not very quietly giving orders to the waitstaff. We were celebrating our anniversary and listening to the staff being told off dampened the experience somewhat. Cannot fault the venue, food or service but perhaps a little discretion in this area could be considered with patrons in close proximity.

    The choice on the menu was quite limited although what we had was very nice. We had some sour dough bread to start, I had an Aperol spritz and the mushroom linguine from the specials and my husband had a non-alcoholic beer and the sirloin steak with green beans and fries. He had to order a couple of side dishes as the steak didn't come with anything at all. The bill was just under £90 which we thought was quite pricey and not great value. However, the service was friendly albeit rather slow.

    Overcooked fish - sent back and 20 minutes for replacement which was exactly the same. Service too slow - most staff hanging around talking to each other about what they did previous evening. Won’t return - poor service and worth the premium price.

    We had a lovely meal in the outside in Marlow. Very courteous staff and although we only had a main course they were generous portions, all different and all cooked beautifully. We will certainly be back next time we need to treat ourselves.

    Took friends for a celebration lunch and were hugely disappointed with the need to return all four main courses being luke warm! The waitress was apologetic and pleasant however it was not her problem. When the dishes were returned they were acceptable and an adjustment was made to the bill which was appreciated.

    The ambience is elegant and different. Extensive cocktail and wine list, I loved my drinks! Food was cooked nicely, especially our rib eyes. Prompt and curteous service. I would give 4 stars to the value because the mark up on food and drinks is quite high. Secondly, mains do not come with sides but you have to purchase them on top. If you are already spending 33£ for a rib eye, it feels pricey. I was also expecting the arancini to be either a bit bigger or more in number for the price. I feel it is an high-end place and I could not go there every month, but well worth for a special occasion!

    Disappointed. We were expecting something quite special - served with what tasted like processed food - with a phlegmy fried egg and yellow wilted water cress. Also the place needs a good deep clean -

    First and foremost we had a wonderful waiter! I don’t know his name but he was a young man with a lovely smile, impeccable manners and very cool dreadlocks. So thank you to him. The food was good and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Smoked salmon & haddock fish cake, blackened cod and a medium rare sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection. Ambience lovely in the garden area. All in all a lovely birthday celebration for my sister.

    Not quite up to Ivy standards on this occasion. 5 olives for £3.75 is a bit much. The welcome was warm and friendly as was the waitress who took our order. However, when we finished our main, we waited over 20 minutes for someone to come and take another drinks order, but no one came. We decided to leave and had to find someone to take our payment. Bit disappointed compared to previous visits

    4th visit and I’m still not overly impressed. Lovely staff but couldn’t find my booking until they realised someone else had been booked in under my name and taken my table but quickly resolved. Wrong meal brought to table for one of the 4 of us so then we had 3 of us with food and one with nothing for 10 mins. Food ok but nothing special. Service very good though and staff always helpful and polite. Drinks quickly brought to table.

    Had a great late lunch and really enjoyed the prawn and monkfish curry. The shepards pie was very small and disappointing for a main course, it looked like a starter and came with no vegetables or sides .
