Ivy lunch.

Food was fantastic. Service was great. Attention to detail and the staff were capable of letting the meal run without any fuss. It was a Birthday celebration and we will go back for my birthday. Thanks for a great few hours.

Service and food has plummeted to an all time low. When they say "side salad", they mean small bowl of limp lettuce with a non descript flavorless dressing. No tomatoes, no other component to actually make it a salad. Unbelievably attentive staff when it comes to refilling water, unbelievably dismissive when it comes to anything else. Maybe the real chef... More

I'm conflicted with this review, because the general organization and setup of the restaurant seems a bit of a mess, but the food is very good. I'd emailed to make a reservation several days earlier that nobody had bothered to reply to, then when we arrived at the restaurant at 5.30pm there was nobody at reception to show us to... More

What an amazing evening my friends and I had at the Ivy. Aaron, kept us intrigued by constantly bringing us new cocktails to try. His knowledge of what works well together is truly remarkable.

We went here for an early dinner. Food was delicous and my mocktail was not overly sweet. I found the ambience a bit dark with lighting a bit gloomy. Service was excellent. My only gripe would be that it is a smoking restaurant. We did not know until the bar crowd came in and we were suddenly engulfed by smoke.

Dear KiwiinBrighton, Please allow me to apologise to you for the smokey ambience inside the restaurant. The restaurant area is non smoking however the adjacent has a smoking area, and many of our regulars smoke as is commonplace inside Dubai eateries. We endeavour to reduce the smoke through our air conditioning system and natural airflow so that it does not... More

As it was our 1st time at The Ivy in Dubai we opted for the Ivy Classics menu to sample all time classic dishes and gauge whether we should return. Overall the food was very good, well presented and filling. The shepherds pie was excellent and the banana sticky toffee pudding also very good. However the cheese soufflé was a... More

Dear Simon G, Firstly let me apologise for the shortfall in the quality. The double baked cheese souffle should, as you have stated, be light and fluffy and therefore I will revisit this quality with my culinary team to ensure consistency. On the same point regarding the bread, I can assure you that our bread is baked and delivered to... More
