"One of a kind in Dubai"

Was there last week and it was my first time at the Ivy and I was really impressed by the staff.... Live Jazz was simply amazing or I should say one of the best in town. Cocktails were delicious and Mohan is one of the best barman I have come across in Dubai. Will definitely recommend this place.

I give this review as a fan of the Ivy, I have been many times for lunch and dinner and the food is good, however we tried the Friday brunch for the first time. I was really excited as I love the food and like an a la carte brunch in favour of huge buffets. We were in a large... More

Dear ‘foodcrazymatt’ Thank you for your short but stunning review of The Ivy Dubai!

Located at the Emirates Towers Hotel, The Ivy is a great place to have a good meal. Four of us had lunch there and the menu, while not overly large, has plenty of choice and some great classics. All the items were served fresh, hot and with a smile. Great service who cared and was not obtrusive. Can only recommend.

Came to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Expected live music and a buzzing atmosphere. Sadly deeply disappointed. Good service and okay food although not a patch on the London parent. Only couple in the place by 10pm. Felt like we were keeping the staff up. Couldn't wait to leave to find somewhere better. Very sad.

Went for the Saturday rolling brunch with guests, as we enjoyed it immensely the first time we went and wanted to share the experience. Again, we weren't disappointed, the food was great, we love the concept of being able to start whenever you want, and the service, although not perfectly efficient was professional and good.

Have wanted to eat here as a friend who lives in Dubai eats there regularly and raves about it. Hubby booked the meal on the Jazz night and was really looking forward to it.

I have tried brunch which is tremendous and dinner which is equally good.

A civilised and sophisticated choice for the ex-pat looking for quality, which is good value for money, too. Top-notch food and drinks, great live music, and attentive and friendly service. We were a large table celebrating a birthday, and the two brunch options were perfect. One includes drinks and three courses; the other, a tasting menu with accompanying wine choices.... More

Probably better for lunch than dinner. Ideal if you are staying at the Emirates Towers hotel and you miss breakfast. Can recommend the burger - it's the real deal. Prices as you would expect for brand and location. Service a bit snooty - just like London!
