For the second year in a row my family and I decided to dine at The Ivy on Christmas Day and we certainly weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was bustling, with a wonderful live singer and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or accomodating despite clearly being rushed off their feet. I'm actually pregnant and forgot to call ahead with... More

This restaurant is ideal for lunch and is situated in a very up market shopping mall at the back of the Emirates Tower. It offers a very good Business lunch 3 course menu at a set price.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review of our business lunch and indeed kind comments about the iconic Emirates Towers. I notice that you were slightly non plus about the atmosphere - you might like to visit on a Thrusday night or Friday brunch when the venue really comes alive with an Ivy buzz. I hope to welcome you back... More

Great food, great service, great atmosphere! Yes it's a bit pricey for a la carte but worth it. The Friday and Saturday brunches are good value considering the food quality is maintained as compared to other venues in the same price bracket. Looking forward to my next visit.

The ivy do a collect service for a full on Turkey Christmas lunch that you finish off at home. The quality was excellent, the quantities amazingly large and the selection of traditional trimmings missed nothing out. You get to have a traditional family festive dinner at home with the minimum of effort.
