coming back for sure!

I was visiting Ivy because of the drinks only. I was looking for some "LondonStyle" classic cocktail bar. I heard that they have also very nice food there, but my main goal was to check and to try classic drinks. Nice service: mixologists are very charming, attractive and engaging. They shared some... read more

I was immediately annoyed by the waitress when I asked about an item on the menu to be told it wasn’t available, not just that it wasn’t available but how!! I asked to speak to the manager. He sort of pacified me but it still left a bad taste and there’s really no way back after that! – spoilt the... More

Dear SelSmith, I am very saddened to read of your disappointment following your recent visit to The Ivy. Items sometimes become unavailable because of reasons out of our control, but it is imperative that this is communicated to you in a way that leaves you with another option and a good feeling. I have investigated this with my managers and... More

We frequent this restaurant often. The staff are always very friendly and knowledgable. The atmosphere at the Jazz Saturday brunch is fantastic. The variety of drinks ( cocktails) and wine list is huge and all three course options on the menu are vast. We have utilised the Dubai Time Out two for one voucher a few times. The best times...

Dear CraigDN72, So glad that our cocktails and wine list keep you coming back! Our Saturday Brunch has been an increasing success over the past year especially due to it's family theme and relaxed timings. Boxing Day was another classic and our singer Ciaran has been a big hit, that day especially, I still remember everyone stood up singing along!... More

Great staff, good food but ambiance lacking. Not sure if it's because it's in Emirates Towers ground floor but an essence of being a pop up restaurant. Nothing like the Ivy in London sadly.

We visited the Ivy last Tuesday and have to say the whole experience was fantastic and brilliant value. Amazing cocktails, probably some of the best food I've had here in Dubai, backed up with outstanding service. It took us half an hour to get downtown but it was worth it. Would highly recommend.
