Had to send steak back , ordered medium- rare came basically raw.
The one we had in return was still nowhere near medium rare.

I love the Ivy in Cardiff in my opinion it is the best of all. The staff and service are brilliant. Cannot wait for the new Asian one to open too.

Would have been nice to know when being seated that 2 diners are allotted table time of 1h 45m, rather than feeling railroaded out at the end of the meal. Food was fantastic.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, it was my husbands birthday and a waitress came to table with a small dessert and candle and sang Happy Birthday, food was excellent and as was the service.
Will definitely be going back.

For what is meant to be a top restaurant, you do not get a top experience. We felt that we were being' processed' rather than ensure we had a good experience.

Our first waiter Adam was amazing and so helpful and observant but we stayed for the whole
Afternoon to have dinner too and whne the shift changed we didn’t get looked after well and were left waiting for ages which was very disappointing as we come a lot. The food was fabulous and the bar man Roland was great at making us. Spoke cocktails. I’ve booked for afernoon tea for my mother in two weeks so hope the service is a bit better then than yesterday.

The volume of the music was very much too loud. When you have to raise your voice to converse, I hope you will agree that volume IS too loud. Music should provide background melody!

We visited for breakfast at 10:30 and found the restaurant to be quite quiet. We received great service from Marieta and the food was delivered promptly after ordering.
The portions were very well judged and my wife and I were very satisfied. Me with the full English and her with the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
This restaurant has a really pleasing ambiance and the restrooms are very well appointed and maintained.
This is our fourth visit to the Ivy Cardiff and we are never disappointed.

The establishment is a lovely place, the flowers are truly beautiful
Cocktails were amazing!
My soup was gorgeous, but that's where is ended. The beef fillet steak wasn't nice at all, it was so chewy and stringy, quite a strange texture to be honest, I do question if it even was fillet, the other guest had sirloin and said the same thing, none of us finished our steaks, avoid the truffles chips its just sprinkles on chips and not worth it! And they were so dry ,could hardly chew them, waitress was lovely but will not return im afraid
