Lovely atmosphere and good food. Professional staff, you could drop the jazz duo though. Great venue for friends or couples.

Really top notch lunch in Dubai, Picked the Saturday lunch menu – 3 courses with drinks. Exceptionally good roast beef. Slightly too creamy Eton Mess with not enough meringue) – but all in all a fantastic experience. Haven’t been to The Ivy in London so don’t know how it all compares, but for me in Dubai this was a great lunch, nice atmosphere with great service, so can’t go far wrong with that. For Dubai prices I reckon this was good value for a great meal.

Last week I had the pleasure of being in town on a rece from our base in Muscat. I came with my husband for an anniversary trip and after being completely turned off by a terrible breakfast at the hotels steakhouse “rib house”. I had the pleasure of joining The Ivy for their tasting wine brunch. 8 courses of delicious food, the perfect portion size and the most fantastic singer. Our sommelier a young handsome Frenchman was extraordinarily knowledgeable and even changed one of the courses as I have an allergy to shellfish. He offered a different course for substitution (a sumptuous duck salad) and organized a separate pairing custom for us! We couldn’t believe how friendly he and all the other staff were. We absolutely cannot wait to come back and join The Ivy. KUDOS to the Ivy staff and food!

I had dinner here with friends and family to celebrate a significant birthday and we had an absolutely superb time. The staff and service were amazing from the second I walked in the door. We had a really attentive, friendly and efficient waitress...her name was Daniella and we were all impressed by her. The food was among the best I have experienced in Dubai....if not 'the' best. All six of us relished our starters, mains and deserts. There was a great atmosphere in the place with a guy singing some old school classics live. I'm 100% definitely coming back here and I hope you get the same experience that I had. Enjoy....

Everything you would expect from this carbon copy of the London branch-good service and good, but unspectacular food-service was as attentive as ever -part of the bigger DUbai Emeriate TOwers which can come across a bit soulless - still worth a visit
