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! Naturally The Ivy on West street in London is inimitable and we couldn't possibly seek to replicate what they have achieved there over their nigh on hundred year history.

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....

I had a business dinner here this week and it never disappoints. I had the soup of the day which was mushroom and it was great but the monkfish for main was even better, perfectly cooked with a fantastic risotto. I'm just gutted that the Ivy is closing. Please don't!

First off, I need to temper my review with the fact that the wait staff at The Ivy were delightful, warm and welcoming. The score of 3 is for them in particular, great job. Everything else sadly disappointing. All the more so since I had been anticipating the visit for some time. The seats are worn and too low to... More

Great food and service. A large top rate wine and cocktail selection. Our food was perfect. The Ivy was in the mall connected to my hotel. When it is boiling from heat outside, you can stay in air conditioning and have a great meal. Or after your meeting great place to have a drink and a snack. You feel like... More

Booked a table before we travelled to Dubai for a sunday night - just before Ramadan. No need as when we got there as it was suprisingly quiet. However, our waitress (we didn't get her name) was a delight & made us feel right at home in an amazing venue. Husband had the shepherds pie (of course!) and I had... More
