The Ivy Dawson Street
Very efficient staff service.
Too many bones in Sole however. Will offset off the bone in future.
Returning this Fri.
Lovely meal and very relaxed. Very good service without being overly attentive!
Delicious tasty food beautifully presented. The service was excellent. The staff were smartly turned out and very attentive. It’s a beautiful restaurant, vibrant colours and tastefully designed.
There is a certain coldness that I believe is inculcated into the staff which believes that keeping a certain distance gives the place a high-born character. This is a myth and I, like many others, would like a friendly smile on arrival and not a quiffed man boy trying to be sophisticated. Our table was not ready on time but that meant we could visit the bar and watch the two cocktail waiters not make eye contact with anyone who approached the bar. We waited close on 9 minutes before we were served. That wasn't good. It doesn't take much to encourage a warmer attitute from the staff.
Overall very good. But so noisy (even though we requested and were given a quiet spot in restaurant. It certainly was quieter than previous visit, but sill nosier than most other restaurants of a similar standard. Was with someone hard of hearing and it’s just off putting).
Great service though. Love the pot of coffee.
Could hear the entire conversations of tables either side. Doubles far too close together. Wine wasn’t chilled when served & ran out of sirloin steak! Disappointing first visit.
This is a Wonderfull place where you can enjoy with your friends or boyfriend I loved it.
Great ambience and comprehensive menu. Attentive but not intrusive service. Food excellent and beautifully executed.
Everything was perfect from start to finish, the noise level was just nice it made the atmosphere more relaxed. Some people were overly dressed some werent so it was pretty laid back. We were there for my husbsnds 40th on valentine's weekend. The food was incredible the service even better and it wasnt as expensive as i thought. I will definitely be back.
Beautiful afternoon tea for my sisters birthday with a lovely touch of a birthday cake, chocolate and candle for her also included. Definitely will be back.
I didn’t catch our servers name but she was a lovely person (short hair in a bob) thanks so much!
Great service, made to feel comfortable in The Ivy. Great food and good value for money. Beautiful restaurant.
Amazing service, very welcoming, food was fantastic overall made our experience brilliant.
Really nice setting for a special occasion but our experience of the service was really poor. Multiple mistakes with our order, a hair in one of the drinks, server clearing our plates did ask how everything was, waited ages for desert order to be taken and had to get someones attention, same when it came to paying the bill. Main courses we nice but nothing special. Credit goes to the deserts which were really good!
I would return for the setting only but definitely not the service.
We had brunch at the Ivy, the food was excellent, extremely fast service. We finished off with the chocolate bomb dessert ! To die for ...
It was a lovely meal but very expensive. We bought had steak which was nearly €35 each but nothing accompanied it. We had to pay extra for a sauce, fries and veg. We eat out a lot but were taken aback by the price and all the extras on top of the meal.
What a fabulous experience
Food service and ambiance all wonderful
Fabulous food and service and great atmosphere. Beautiful dining room
Overpriced mediocre food, nice decor and setting but not worth the money you pay.
The monkfish curry was absolutely overpowered with coriander and inedible. To be charged 12.5% service charge for 2 people is also an absolute joke. Not worth the money whatsoever.
Absolutely outstanding staff who were all so pleasant. Myself and my partner had a beautiful meal and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We’ll definitely be back!
Ambiance is amazing. One feels like as if dining in a botanic garden 😊 Though every dish tastes delicious, menu is very standard. It could a bit excitement and new flavors
Best place in town for an afternoon tea!
A fantastic experience from start to finish. Beautiful setting and excellent service.
Bar manager had snobby attitude
Ordered shepherds put have never been so dissatisfied with size of portion
Extremely bad value for money
Definitely will not be back
Please serve milk with coffee don’t
Presume cream. Individual Coffee pots cute but really small. Selection of different roasts would be nice. Also include in the
Menu a fruit plate of some description.
Amazing Vegan menu, love the place and great service
We went for evening meal on Valentines Day during a weekend away in Dublin. The restaurant was incredibly busy as you’d expect, but the staff were excellent.
The food was really good, and there was little delay getting each course, we barely waited at all.
My only minor let down was how loud it was. The music was quite loud, and made it seem a little less intimate.
Overall though, we really enjoyed our time there and I’m sure we’ll dine at another Ivy at some point.
Amazing room, you could be in NY!! Nicely presented food but on the small side. Lovely, efficient waitress. Just wondering if the restaurant has got the staff tips situation sorted!!
Lovely visit, great quality food and great atmosphere. We had fish, both meals were tasty. Don’t forget to add sides.
so booked a table - Valentines evening 5.30pm to be told upon arrival they had opened the private dining area as very busy and that’s where we were to be seated - extremely disappointing as lacking in any ambiance - food over priced and setting very disappointing !
Be aware there is an automatic 12.5% service charge
Absolutely. The atmosphere is fantastic. A buzzy, busy, fabulous place to spend an afternoon or evening in. Just love the place!! I've been about 6 times now and always have a great time and thoroughly enjoyable meal. 👍👍👍
Slow service , had to fight for attention with other tables
I would be happy to recommend this place to a friend but would probably explain what I liked & disliked about it.
We went for lunch during the week.
The staff were very nice & helpful.
The decor was really beautiful & the views outside onto the street were delightful. An excellent place to celebrate & take photos in.
The food was nice but considering the price I do feel I should have seen more impressed.
However I was impressed with their non alcoholic drink options & had a gorgeous strawberry & cream soda.
I would go back for drinks/atmosphere/location/staff & would be interested in trying the afternoon tea but would be unlikely to go back for lunch/dinner.
Great service, lovely staff. Good value. Very enjoyable.
Great experience, live piano would have been amazing!
I love the vibe, the atmosphere, the food is great. However the service is appalling, every time..
it makes me stop & think before I book.
I had breakfast recently. The front office left me standing waiting while he discussed making a staff member spend their day in the office on paperwork.
The waiting staff were unhelpful, unable to carry crockery. Slow to take orders...
It’s so disappointing.
Really good experience. The food is delicate and light.
Great night, super food and service. Drinks are pricy!
