Ivy and Jack
It was ok, Staff were fabulous but we usually go out for pub meals that are larger and better value so was a little different to out usual liking wasn't for us for dinner. BUT The buffet Breakfast was amazing at Ivy and Jacks definitely would go back for their buffet Breakfast. Thank you

Team dinner with 7 of us at this nice venue. Sat towards the back where they offer full service dining. Good menu options for sharing with the starters. Great service!

Hi Michelle, thanks for taking the time to write a great review - we're glad to see you had a great experience. We can't wait to see you again in the near future
We booked a table early evening as we were going to the theatre. There was no one to meet us at the door and I had to find a waiter to say we had booked. Got seated and placed our order and waited 45 mins for our food. We were told we weren’t forgotten but the pork chop had to rest! Food was tasty but not warm so had obviously been left in the kitchen. We ordered 2 glasses of wine and my wine never arrived until I asked for it 10 mins later. When we paid and told the waiter our concerns he said that it was a new menu and everything was cooked to order so took along time. It was quiet when we arrived and it doesn’t take 45 mins to cook a pork chop and serve a beef cheek. Not good service and won’t be back.
Hi Corrine, thank you for taking the time to write feedback. We started our new menu on Wednesday and some staff are still familiarising themselves. Unfortunately the lamb chop does take around 30 minutes to cook from scratch (longer if the restaurant is busy), and this should have been communicated upon arrival if you made the staff aware of your theatre plans. We have followed up on this issue and are ensuring all staff are aware of the suggestions for a pre-theatre meal. Much appreciated
We all really enjoyed it and have already recommended.loved the whole experience and so did the kids.will definitely be back
Hi Taren, thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review on your recent experience at Ivy & Jack. We are glad to see that you and your family had an enjoyable experience and we can't wait to welcome you back in the near future.
Delightful waitress, friendly & attrntive, hope she got the tip we left for her.She asked what tme our concert was (dinner pre David Gray)& she was immediately aware of our needs. As another waitress was delivering our dessert she clicked that there wasn't a second spoon coming with it (we were sharing )& by the time it got to the table,spoon number 2 was there. Delicious food, good wine selection, perfect ore show dinner.
Hi Elise, thank you for taking the time to write a great review! We are thrilled to hear that you experienced excellent staff service before your show, and that you enjoyed your meals. We will pass this great feedback onto our staff. We hope to see you again in the near future for another pre-show dinner.
Service was ok but had to remind staff to bring my partners beer. After the reminder the barman came over and informed us that they were out of the beer we had ordered. Given it was an on tap beer that was very surprising. I had the Ivy’s bowl which was delicious and partner had the Moroccan lamb cutlets which he enjoyed but thought they could have been a little more spicy. Meals were well priced and enjoyable casual lunch.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We are glad to hear that you and your partner enjoyed your meals at Ivy & Jack. We apologise that our tap beer ran out during your experience and hope our staff were able to rectify this issue. We will pass your feedback onto our team for improvement, and hope to see you again in the near future.
I love coming here, the server we had was wonderful. She went out of her way to be attentive and helpful. I ordered the lamb curry and I was really disappointed. It was chewy and tasteless. However the dessert was lovely.
Hi Mirella, thank you for taking the time to write about your dining experience. We are thrilled to hear that you experienced wonderful service at Ivy & Jack, however we are disappointed you did not enjoy your meal. We have provided your feedback to our team for improvement.

Food was great and arrived at the time I requested in an email to them. The staff were very attentive and will definitely be coming again
Hi Steven, thanks for taking the time to write a great review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience and that your pre order arrived in a timely fashion. We can't wait to see you again soon.
We booked ahead and had table of 8. Very friendly and polite. Order was messed up and meals not as requested. Younher Staff member tried very hard and apologised several times. Second older taff member retook order however it was messed up again. Didnt say too much to us and once served meals did not offer anything to compennsate. Delayed lunch by 20 minutes as meals not served together. Ruined a farewell luncheon as we ate seperately.
Hi Paul, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are disappointed to hear that you did not have an enjoyable experience with us and that your farewell luncheon was not to plan. We will be investigating this issue further and passing your feedback onto our teams.
Very friendly staff. Made us feel welcome. My Caesar salad was very average but my friend enjoyed her morrocan chicken salad. Her meal was much more substantial than mine!
Hi Carmcc, we're glad to hear that you had an enjoyable experience at Ivy & Jack and that our staff service was a highlight. Thank you for your feedback, we have passed this onto our team. We hope to see you again soon.
I was looking for a great restaurant to celebrate our daughter's 40th. She lives in LA. So I found Ivy & Jack & we wete not disappointed with our dining experience because everything was outstanding. Our daughter is such a food & dining experience guru & she would not have been disappointed. Well done Ivy & Jack & loved the historical significance. I will definitely recommend you.
Hi JeanetteS, thanks so much for leaving a great review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed everything about your experience at Ivy & Jack. We hope to see you again in the near future!
A fantastic night with friends. Ivy and Jack was a bit noisy, so I probably wouldn’t recommend for a romantic first date, but the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff exceptional. I’ll definitely be back!
Hi JodiB, we're glad to hear you had a great time at Ivy & Jack! Thursday's are our busiest day of the week with our $5 pints, so we'd recommend a different night for a more quiet date night. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the energetic atmosphere and can't wait to see you next time :)
The setting was good. We each ordered something off the menu and although we ordered one after the other there was a huge difference in time between the food coming to the table. For the price of the food I would have expected a bigger size meal.
Hi Fiona Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. Our apologies that you experienced a large wait between your meals - we are currently exploring methods to ensure that meals ordered individually are arriving at the same time on the same table. Customer service is a strong focus for us, so we appreciate you passing on your feedback and have passed this onto our teams for improvement.
We enjoyed the meal with a large group . The service was good and the ambiance was casual and not too crowded . I would be happy to return
Hi Fiona, thanks for taking the time to write a great review. We're glad to see you enjoyed your experience at Ivy & Jack and hope to see you again soon!
Loved everything. Have been there a number of times and love everything about it.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to write a great review. We are glad to hear you have enjoyed your numerous experiences at Ivy & Jack and cannot wait to see you next!
A relaxed and friendly atmosphere. High very standard meal.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a great review Michael! We hope to see you again soon at Ivy & Jack.
Food was fabulous. Great value for money too. Only complaint is that when we arrived it took us some time to attract attention to one of the staff as we had a reservation. We were then seated at one table but had to move within 5 minutes as we had been placed at the wrong table.
Hi Ray, thanks for writing a lovely review! We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback, customer service is currently a strong focus for us so we have passed this onto our team for consideration and improvement. We hope to see you again soon.
Funky design and layout.
Unfortunately the food wasn’t anything to make us return. Nice food, but nothing more than what you could cook at home as far as tapas goes.
Staff were friendly, but the restaurant appeared understaffed.
Glad we tried it, but won’t be returning.
Hi Chana, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We have passed your feedback onto our team for improvement. We have will soon be refreshing our menu with our new head chef and hope to see you again then - great things are coming!
Great variety of dishes especially on the "share" menu and really tasty.
Hi Tanya, thanks for leaving a great review. We're glad to see you enjoyed our menu variety and hope to see you again soon.
Food and staff were excellent. Great to use the high roller vouchers
Hi Julie, thanks for leaving a great review! We're glad to see you enjoyed the benefits of signing up to our Gold Class Lounge.
Overall a good experience food was tasty . Ribs were fantastic. Barramundi portions were a little on the small side considering the cost. $28 still tasty .
Hi Vince, we're thrilled to see you enjoyed the food as well as the service at Ivy & Jack. Your feedback has been passed onto our chef for consideration in our upcoming menu change. We hope to see you again soon.
We visit Ivy & Jack for a quiet drink on Thursdays or Fridays and it is great. This time we went there for lunch and the menu and food was mediocre.
Hi Francesh, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're glad to hear you enjoy our drink specials on Thursdays and Fridays. Our menu will be having a refresh in the coming month, and your feedback will assist with this. We hope to see you again soon.
Perfect spit for lunch with the kids before the theatre! Lots of healthy light lunch options!
Hi Kellie, thanks for the great review. We're glad to hear you and your kids enjoyed your meal!
Came to try out the $15 Midweek Lunches but there was only 3 light selections to pick from.
A La Carte menu was selected from instead.
Thanks for the feedback NewEatsToTry! We hope to see you again soon.
Ivy and Jack is in a great location close to the CBD. My girlfriend and I went for dinner, and we were fairly happy with the experience. The BBQ ribs was a very generous size, and the sauce was very nice. The meat wasn't quite as tender as I'd expect, but it was still quite good. My girlfriend didn't enjoy her gnocchi very much, and after trying some for myself - I agreed it lacked in flavour and was very bland. The dessert was great - and the staff were all very pleasant. I'd probably go back again, though probably give the gnocchi a miss next time.
Hi Travis, thanks for taking the time to write a review on your recent experience! We're glad to see you enjoyed the flavour of the ribs and have passed your feedback regarding the gnocchi onto our chefs for consideration in the upcoming menu revision. We hope to see you again soon!
The food was awesome, perfect portion sizes! Cocktail list was a bit light on and it was kinda quiet! Not what I was expecting, but I’d definately go back xx
Hi Ange, thanks for leaving a great review! We're glad to hear you'll be back and have taken your comments on our cocktail list for improvement. We can't wait to see you again soon.
A great trendy bar. Feeling right in the heart of things, whilst also feeling like you are out on the town, even in the daytime.
Great menu selections, most of which are priced well (although I couldn’t really see how my plate of feta, olives, cheese and some meat was a $26 dish). The battered barramundi and chips was a good deal at $20.
Join their high rollers club, and get a free meal for a friend.
Lots of specials, such as $15 lunch, $10 cocktails, happy hour etc.
Hi Liesl, thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our Gold Class Lounge club/benefits, as well as the many specials we have on offer. Your feedback regarding the antipasto plate has been passed onto our chefs for consideration and improvement. We hope to see you again soon!
Great Atmosphere, our waitress was outstanding...love the kids pack they were a real hit for my 4year old and 10year old. My meal was lovely however the salmon was extremely overcooked...otherwise I would have given five stars
Hi Vivvy thanks for leaving a great review! We're thrilled to hear that you and your kids loved the service at Ivy & Jack. We really appreciate your great feedback, and have passed your feedback regarding the salmon onto our chefs. We hope to see you again soon.
Breakfast was very tasty. We were served quickly, which was great because we were on our way to the Hopman Cup.
Hi Tan, we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed a swift breakfast at Ivy & Jack before the Hopman Cup. We hope to see you again soon!
Fantastic food, serivce and settings. Not too noisy. Just need to watch the surcharge on Public holidays, which is the only debbie downer.
Hi Steve, thanks for the great review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience at Ivy & Jack. We wish we didn't have to have a public surcharge holiday also, however we like to reward our staff for the hard work they consistently provide during the public holiday rush. We hope to see you again soon!
Went to Ivy and Jack for Christmas breakfast, staff were very accommodating and friendly. Food was great, very good value for money, definitely would recommend 😀
Hi Kaylene, thanks for the great feedback! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your Christmas breakky, and hope to see you again soon!
Despite having excellent meals in the past, this meal was one of the worst I have experienced in a long time. Yes it was extremely busy because of the time of the year but when pizza.s come, not cooked properly and one of our friends lunch came minus the pork belly and was told it was underneath the salad and upon investigation there was nothing there. This meal was taken back and returned with 4 pieces of diced pork thrown on the top. Waited over an hour and a half for our meals, noticing that other tables who ordered after ours were served before us. The senses of opinion with the five ladies I was with was that it would take us a considerable time before we ventured back, if at all.
Hi Wendy, we are pleased to hear you have had great experiences in the past however very disappointed that this was not one of them. Unfortunately on this day we were exceptionally busy which impacted our service, our apologies. Your feedback has been passed onto our team for improvement. We do hope to have the opportunity to once again provide an excellent experience.
Too long to wait for both food and drinks.
Meals came out over a period of 45 minutes.
Two ladies had to leave before their order came to the table.
Hi Lynn our deepest apologies regarding the wait time during your meal. Unfortunately we were very busy during this period, and have made a note of this for next year for preparation. Your feedback has been passed onto our staff for improvement. We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future.
Been a few times and always a good atmosphere. Food always good and staff are friendly.
Good service and nice atmosphere. Food menu ok.
Thank you for leaving great feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the service and atmosphere and will be passing this onto the team. We hope to see you again soon!
We went for a late dinner and had great service and food. So nice to find somewhere that is open later and has a good atmosphere, service and food.
Hi Laura, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your late dinner! We hope to see you again soon for another great night.
Very poor service. Had to wait around 20 minutes for our drinks and only received them after asking. Staff standing around chatting. Waiter kept standing near us, doing what??? Wouldn't recommend. Food very average
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, it is highly appreciated. We have passed this information onto the team for improvement. We hope we have a second chance to impress you in the future.
