Booked for a 60th Birthday with my family and could not have been better. Atmosphere is bustling and vibrant while the food is exceptional. Neat portion sizes but the flavour is banging. Service is absolutely first class. Attentive, knowledgeable and extremely polite. 5 star.

We visited with a party of 15 for Friday Brunch all stared well apart from the fact that it was hard to get drinks served however when the food arrived it was cold and served without any gravy on a roast dinner which we were lead to believe was there specialty so of course we complained...... Nothing was done ......... More

We had a delicious lunch for my friend's birthday - most of us had the brunch package which we found to be very nice; there was a great selection. The service was good, albeit a little slow considering the restaurant was quite quiet. There was a pianist in the corner that sounded nice but I think the restaurant would benefit... More

Great food and service but I would prefer if there was no band as it's difficult to hear. We all enjoyed our food.

I have been to The Ivy many times since it opened in Dubai and this last visit wasn't as good as it used to be. I noticed the service staff are not nearly as attentive and interested in their customers as previous times, and I think the staff have changed. The food was still as good but I used to... More

Visited for the happy hour and bar food deal. The happy hour was good, over a few hours and finished at 8pm with deals on cocktails, wine and beer. The food option was 2 nibbles and 1 small plate for 99 DHS. The choices were a bit strange and everything comes together. Most things were fried, meaning not a lot... More

Had a lovely brunch experience with my parents who were in town visiting. A beautiful location to escape the heat with amazing food, efficient service and great entertainment. A special mention must go to James our Sommelier. His knowledge is second to none which was accompanied by some excellent chat. He kept us amused all afternoon and is a true... More

The Ivy in London is in the middle of Theatre land, and a well known celeb spotting place that reintroduced clasics of bangers and made alone side shepherds pie with more normal Brasserie food. The dark interior and stained glass window and quite cramped setting was well known. So for a Dubai branch to open is strange. You can mimic... More

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on your recent experience at the Ivy Dubai. It appears you enjoyed yourself!

Been here a few times...mainly on a Saturday afternoon when we are craving a roast dinner and the food is always very good however, the service and ambience never is. The whole experience always feels like you are in a library, staff are very serious and everyone speaks in hushed tones. This is probably different on a Friday brunch....
