The Ivy St. Helen’s Square
Food fab service excellent
Lovely place to dine. Staff were kind and attentive. Great place to take someone for a special occasion.
Good food and good choice.
Nice place but we feel the Ivy group
is over rated. We have tried London, Leeds and York and have not been bowled over. Tommie & Valerie Reape
Really good nice food and great service would definitely go again
We have waited all year to be able to dine at The Ivy with vouchers given to us last Christmas! It did not disappoint in the slightest. Everything from the moment we stepped through the door and were greeted, to the service, the food, drink and atmosphere -were just superb! We dined in the little room upstairs and having never been in there before we were thrilled with the ambience of the room- it felt intimate without it feeling like we could not talk. We came away feeling like we had had a truly special evening and we cannot wait for another opportunity to return again. Thank you to all staff.
We had a lovely evening. The restaurant was great. The food was good and the service was excellent.
Monk fish curry was delicious. Followed by the amazing chocolate bomb ❤️
The menu has too many fish dishes and needs a more balanced menu. Although it boasts a vegetarian and vegan menu which it does have, the actual vegan choices are very few. But what I chose from the vegan menu was very nice and well presented.
Excellent meal and attentive staff, who are knowledgeable about what they do.
Not the usual level of care shown in the service on this occasion.
At first it was good but following this after the food was delivered we were not approached again for further drinks or to see if everything was alright or even to clear the table and to enquire whether or not we wanted a dessert, in fact we did not see our waitress again and I had to wait until I could attract the attention of a waiter in order to pay my bill and leave.
Most of the food was up to the usual standard but my fries were well and truly overcooked and very hard and peas were barely warm. The Ivy is usually very good and I always give a good review but after this experience I cannot give a good review.
The service was not worth the service charge on the bill but I did pay it rather than further ruin the meal. I know that this attitude doesn't help but I hope this was a one off and on my next visit perhaps it will have improved
Almost pub quality set menu,very disappointing.It was not as special as we were expecting.
A wonderful dining experience. Pricey but the food is wonderful. Beautifully presented and tastes incredible! The service was perfect. We felt throughly spoilt and it was the perfect end to a mini break in York.
Lovely place to eat. The main was nice but not outstanding for what you are paying, the truffle mash we ordered and sweet peas were delicious but the chicken lacked some more flavour but may have chose the wrong dish. The halloumi was oh so good. The chocolate bombe dessert was amazing though!
Had a fabulous time - food and service excellent as usual
My friends and I had booked in for a girly couple of days away in York for our 50ths (should have been Benidorm). From start to finish the service was excellent. Food was beautiful. I couldn't fault them at all. I would highly recommend for a special occasion. I will definatley be going back.
First class service,the girls running the upstairs area in york were so professional and friendly they just made it perfect.
The service, ambiance and food were excellent as usual.
This meal was for our wedding anniversary and we had a very enjoyable evening. The service was excellent, we were very well looked after. Our food which arrived quite quickly was a little cool for us but was replaced without any hesitation by our waitresses and we were impressed by that. Everything was great for the rest of our meal and evening. Many thanks Enid Wilkinson
Delicious lunch and a great place to catch up with friends. Good friendly service but a but naughty not to offer the set lunch menu - I had to ask. But having said that one of my favourite places to eat in York and the tuna carpaccio was mouth watering. I'll be back !
An excellent meal, as always, a good way to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary.
Really enjoyed being upstairs plenty of space and light and airy. Great if you continue to use this area after Covid. It always feels squashed downstairs especially at the back. The food was delicious and the service was good. Thank you
Excellent service from entering to leaving.
High quality food, though a bone left in fish cake.
Fish Pie was great
Staff were excellent and friendly. They were well presented and professional. The only complaint was a fly constantly buzzing around our table and surrounding tables.
Perfect antidote to Covid .....perfect food and wine with competent fun staff
Felt it was overpriced for this experience £95 (previously been to one in Winchester) food was nice enough, 2x main, 1 dessert, 1x warm coffee and 1 x g&t each. Happy to pay service charge but feel 12.5% a tad steep. Have to confess all this is in comparison with the excellent vfm we’ve had in all other places we’ve eaten this week in North Yorkshire that aren’t chains.
A restaurant with a great atmosphere.
Service was top notch.
We are Vegetarians and the menu had a great choice.
We over ordered because everything sounded amazing, and non of it let us down.
Overall Atmosphere = Great
Service = Attentive
Food = Delicious
As usual my experience here was wonderful. I have now brought many friends and family who have also thoroughly enjoyed it. A special treat!
The Ivy is always exceptional in all areas.
Food is sourced well, cooked expertly and served attractively.
The staff are all friendly and efficient without ever being too intrusive.
The decor is attractively quirky, the seating comfortable, and the atmosphere is lively without being loud. Love it!!
Excellent food, pleasant surroundings and lovely staff. My husbands birthday was recognised by staff who made an effort to wish him a happy birthday.
Everything as expected except it would be better in current situation if staff wore masks and for menus to be on QR codes Plus customers should wear masks to walk around.
Sanitiser on table a nice touch though.
It was amazing from start to finish, food was excellent, service was excellent.
Beautiful food though a tad pricey . Exceptional service and a real treat!!
Delicious food in lovely surroundings - everything done to maintain Covid restrictions. Wonderful service from a very dedicated staff particularly Nicky who made us feel very welcome.
Great service! Very friendly waiter who took the time to chat openly with us. In fact even the people at the next table who we had never met ended up chatting to us. Great food and with enough time in between before the next course was served. Given the amount we paid (It is expensive!) we thought the cocktails were more ice than drink and mentioned this to the waiter but we were not offered another. Aside from that minor disappointment we really enjoyed it and will visit an Ivy again when we saved enough money!!
Great service from the waitress; lovely setting & atmosphere!
Excellent service and staff in general, all food was incredible and worth the price.
Lovely food, great atmosphere and the staff are incredible, 5 star
Professional service from start to finish, great food and ambience. Yes maybe a little pricey but for a special occasion I would highly recommend.
