The Ivy Soho Brasserie
Really fresh, delicious menu - a struggle to choose!
We enjoyed our visit and the meal was excellent - however it was DJ night and although the music was fine - it was too loud. I'm not deaf but you just have to shout across the table to be heard. Personally, I really don't like this - so unnecessary. I suppose that I am in a minority - sign of the times!
First comment was about vacating the table after 1.5 hours then 15 minutes before drinks order. Just finished dessert when time was up. Offered stools at bar but standing room only. Menu good and cocktails reasonably priced.
My sisters came first time to London , I chose ivy to make them feel special .
I was disappointed as I didn’t really feel we were looked after.
We didn’t pay service charge , the waiter didn’t even ask why .
Fantastic place to eat. Dined outside for brunch with friends - delicious food, great atmosphere and lovely staff.
Lovely restaurant, good service, buzzy place.
They seem to have a problem chilling wine. On several occasions the Rose wine has been barely cold. And what is it with putting your wine in a bucket miles away from your table and having to ask the waiter time and time again to fill the glasses on the table. Sort it out Ivy.
Also, VERY disappointed they are STILL using plastic straws in their cocktails - not very acceptable any more in this day and age, is it?
Unfortunately both the staff members that served us were not particularly friendly and at one point actually quite rude. We felt rushed by the end and I'm afraid it did affect the experience which was a pre-wedding celebration with a friend.
Service was terrible. Three of us received our food and the fourth diner had to wait ten minutes for his. When highlighted to the wait staff there was no rush to sort the error out.
Lovely place a little pricey but worth it great place to socialise and food is great too!
Maggie was absolutely incredible! A true professional! Made us feel at home and welcome from the moment we arrived. Thankyou!!
Amazing customer service- Turley a lovely dinning experience- only issue we asked for some water was given bottled when all other tables had tap water, would prefer to be given the option but overall amazing experience loved it will be going back
We booked for 10:30pm, arrived from theater at 10:40pm, they siad the kitchen was about to close, and they were not sure if we could have dinner. It ended up having dinner but it was a rushed affair. Next time just don't accept 10:30pm reservations.
have been here before for lunch and really enjoyed it. The only difference for an evening meal was for some reason they have a DJ - not speaking just playing music and it was really loud! so difficult to have a proper conversation. Otherwise good food and drink on offer
Absolutely Outstanding - as always!!
Antonia was our star of the day!
Lovely menu and food options, meat, fish, vegetarian and small appetites.
Service is very good and recommend the cocktails and frothy hot chocolate !
Beautiful comfortable surroundings too.
Way way way too noisy - impossible to speak to people other than the person immediately next to you.
I love the ambiance and decor of this Ivy Brasserie but sometimes the noise levels are so high that everyone seems to be shouting to be heard. The service is good and the food is good.
As ever a lovely meal and can’t fault the service food or anything.
The location, service, staff are all excellent. Beautifully styled room and lovely attention to detail.
I've been several times but sadly, the vegetarian/vegan options are still a bit disappointing.
Nice sides though, especially the courgette fries.
We come here often, and generally a great experience. This time we waited about 1h between starters and mains, which had never happened - hence the 3 stars on service.
These things can happen though, and we will definitely keep coming back.
Lovely menu and food, and a great setting. However service could've been faster, considering it was a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was only half full.
I have visited The Soho Brasserie many times as I find it to be the best location when going out as I frequent Soho a lot. However I have probably only once received acceptable service. The wait staff seem bored and uninterested. I do not expect a sense add but to actually talk to the customer may be nice, even if it’s just a quick ‘enjoy your meal’. Our waitress was incredibly rude and served a flat Diet Coke, when asked to change it she insisted its meant to be flat and stormed off grumpily to change it. She then didn’t return to our table where another server served us without saying a word. I’ve also had waiters be inappropriate and ‘stare’ when I visited with a group of female friends before not long ago. However the food was good and service was fast. But I think I will be sticking to the Kensington restaurant from now on.
Pre-theatre 2 course meal. Allowed 2 hours and took full 2 hours. Food was nice, wait staff were friendly and attentive except for the order possibly going missing.
We had a much needed breakfast. Fabulous. Wish I could have breakfast there everyday 😀👍
Food was really nice & not expensive but the service was not the best. The waitress seemed to have an attitude which was disappointing.
Went with friends for my Wife's Birthday great atmosphere and ambience. Food was good however service was poor. We complained about the service and the manager was fantastic and made amends so we will defiantly go back as it was handled so well
Have been to many branches of The Ivy Brasserie and never disappointed until visiting the Soho branch. Food was delicious however waitress was slow, surly and disinterested. Forgot one starter, which we reordered but also didn’t turn up. Both still appeared on our bill, as well as a £11 cocktail charge which should’ve been a £3.50 soft drink. Again, no one seemed bothered. A shame as a dent in the franchise, however would recommend any of the others as an alternative.
We decided to go for the Ivy for the atmosphere. The music is great, the deco, the vibe! We ordered eggs Benedict avocado (excellent choice), fish and chips which my husband loved and a steak tartare (to die for!!! Smoky excellent surprise!) we definitely advise anyone to choose going over Ivy’s for brunch!
Went for dinner. The beetroot & feta on watermelon was amazing...highly recommend it. Warm night so sat outside but it was noisy (probably due to the London Pride celebrations). Our fault but staff should maybe have called it out and let us make a decision. All that aside will definitely be back!
After a disappointing first trip we returned at the invitation of Lorne, the manager, who ensured that our second trip was fantastic! We will be back again!
Saturday night with resident DJ had a brilliant vibe and perfect celebration for my daughters 18th Birthday. Waiter was friendly and food was delicious!
The food was excellent and the waiter that we had was superb, the music was at the right level and the whole place was very clean and well maintained, we will be going back.
Fantastic evening had by all. Great food, good music by female DJ. Lively atmosphere celebrating Pride. Very good waitress and attentive staff.
Beautiful interior, fantastic service and the food was incredible - even for two veggies!
Not all it’s cracked up to be. Poor service. Middling food. Poor general ambience.
Food was delicious and although we had a slight delay for our table the staff were great. Perfect setting for a hen party and the Bride to be even got an unexpected dessert as a congratulations. Will definitely return!
We have dined at this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed the food and service. It is also
an absolutely stunning room in terms of décor and art - you would have to go a very long way to dine in a more beautiful restaurant!
As for Saturday's Pride Brunch is was just fantastic - unbelievable atmosphere - great entertainment - so much energy -just so much fun - we could have stayed for dinner as well!
The staff clearly enjoyed themselves. Meanwhile they were as professional as ever Amazingly, amongst all of this the food was of the usual high standard. (Overall, a unique experience) - congratulations to all involved.
It was pride in London and the ivy in soho had the best show of pride support with a fabulous drag act with accompanying beautiful young men. A great DJ to aadd to the buzz in the ivy.All the staff here wearing fabulous glittery outfits. The service was excellent and the food burgers with chips simple but very filling for a full day celebrating pride in soho. I’d definitely recommend the ivy in soho. Lovely staff who looked after us throughout out booking. A thank you.
Pride brunch. Fantastic food and atmosphere!
Another really great meal at the Soho Brasserie - great food, great cocktails and good service!
