Tried the brunch menu on a Saturday for lunch. Good to see this restaurant has not declined in its offering and high standards. The place was modestly busy with a nice crowd. Service was still professional and the food was very tasty. The brunch is a little overwhelming as a 4 course minimum can really fill you up. I think... More

I visited here for dinner with colleagues recently. We ate from the Chef's Plate Menu - quality food alongside excellent service. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant and our waiter was very friendly and happy to offer recommendations. Great live music too, I'm sure I'll be back soon!

I arrived at 4pm, famished from a ridiculous trip to Oman though the desert with dodgy a/c. Rebekah at the bar was so welcoming and friendly, listening to my tale of woe. She convinced me to order the full dinner size fish & chips and I ate every last bit of it. It was simply spectacular. The chips are the... More

I love the ambient of the restaurant. The staff are friendly enough and can help for dish suggestion. I love the way they make the steak. If you like chocolate, Crackle Bombe one is highly recommended and I just upload a video on my Instagram account @NasserAlkhalifi showing how delicious the chocolate Crackle Bombe is.

The food here is good and always served hot, choices are simple and staff are great. The place lacks some atmosphere by design but is worth trying for the food, service and live entertainment. I love the house burger and shepherds pie. We went for brunch recently which was a lively affair however no one at our table (6) liked... More

Friday brunch is an important part of ex-pat living in Dubai and a great way to relax with friends after a long week. The Ivy does live upto its expectations, although on this particular occasion, staff levels did seem on the low side. Either way, the staff are excellent, smiley, chatty and very knowledgeable about the food they serve and... More

My second time here. All the staff are very pleasant. Atmosphere buzzy. It makes a nice change to be served at the table than buffet style like most brunches, gives it that more classy feel about where you are.
