This is a lovely-looking place - great for the 'occasion' vibe. Went for brunch as we had plans in the area later that day. However, booked for 10.45 so we could get the breakfast menu, as it changes at 11.00. The brunch menu actually has relatively few traditional breakfast items on it. Unfortunately we were kept waiting for our table for about 15 minutes, so when we were seated we were only offered the brunch menu. We did say that we had come specifically for the breakfast menu but were told that the kitchen had changed over. While I can live with this, it was a bit frustrating given we had arrived ready to be seated in time for breakfast, and there wasn't much acknowledgement of the fact we had been inconvenienced - it wasn't the service level I would expect at somewhere like this.
As for the food, it was decent. I had eggs benedict (which came with chips for some strange reason). The hollandaise sauce was particularly good, though the ham was a bit underwhelming and perhaps the dish as a whole lacked seasoning. My boyfriend's pancakes got a thumbs up.
We were kept waiting for water and the bill.
Overall, I'd give the food 3 stars, the atmosphere 4 stars, and the service 2 stars.
I freaking love this place. I may live in Chelsea but secretly I'm poor AF so when you find that you can actually afford a place that looks like the Queen's parlour, you get excited. I've been here for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks and overtime has been damn delightful. The staff are lovely and well presented, the food is delicious and the decor is what dreams are made of. The garden is so gorgeous for breakfast or afternoon tea in Summer and inside is cosy and warm for winter. The lobster Benedict has to be one of my favourites along with the zucchini fries. Also, my favourite thing has to be when you ask for bread and they bring you the whole damn sourdough loaf! Heaven!
What a gorgeous restaurant!
I was a little apprehensive about going with my two year old boy but the staff were so welcoming and accomadating towards us! We went for brunch and had a gorgeous meal with cocktails. The decor is totally instagram worthy and is just beautiful.
Next time I'm in London I'll definitely be returning!
Well deserved winner of Restaurant category in TO Love London Awards for Chelsea.Spot on service and fab food.
Friday night at The Ivy Chelsea Garden is a tumultuous affair and rather enjoyable. The place was packed. Waiting at the bar was almost impossible, so we went outside to the back garden. It wasn't too cold and few guests were smoking and drinking like this was the south of Spain. Food was well presented and tasteful. I had the wasabi prawns (didn't taste the wasabi at all) and fish and chips. My guests loved the sirloin steak and the rack of lamb. Overall good atmosphere, noisy, busy, trendy.
