“Consistently the best restaurant I have ever visited”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I have had the good fortune of visiting The Ivy in Dubai on several occasions and each and every time my expectations are exceeded. The service from the moment you walk in the door is outstanding and the quality of food and drink from aperitif through to desserts and coffee cannot be faulted.

On every visit I have tried a new dish and have never been disappointed. The Pork Belly being a favourite and the chocolate bomb something worth visiting for alone.

We will continue to visit The Ivy and continue to sing its praises to anyone who will listen!

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your review - Tripadvisor has become a great way to measure service standards and indeed product consistency.

The fact that 'consistency' is the thread of your review greatly pleases us all as it is something we strive hard to achieve across both food & service. To hear such effusive priase is always nice and the team thanks you kindly. I will be sure to pass on your specific comments about the pork and chocolate bomb to the chefs - the bomb is most certainly a 'show stopper' isn't it? You should come and try the latest edition of white chocolate and peppermint!

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Kind regards,

The Ivy team

“Why would you go anywhere else?”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

I am a huge fan of The Ivy! The food, service and atmosphere are consistently great. No matter whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch we are never disappointed. This restaurant is still an undiscovered gem in Dubai and one of my favourites.

“Simply marvellous!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Having tried The Ivy in London before the Dubai branch opened I was very doubtful that it would be anything like it. It's not. It is 1000 times better.

The quality of food produced, the attention to detail in the service, the warm welcome and the great knowledge of the team there make it a place I will go back to time and time again. I have never been disappointed by anything there and, having eaten in some of the most amazing places around the World, like to think I know good restaurants.

Niki and the team make every visit a special one. They are always welcoming and don't take it for granted that you will go back. Each time is like the first time.

I invited friends to the Friday brunch and they weren't sure about it. They were hooked from their first visit onwards and anytime we think about it now, it is a no-brainer to return. Dinner is also delightful and even when the place is full the service is always great.

If you are in any doubt, try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

“Extraordinary- best everything in Dubai!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Best cocktails, best food, best staff. There is not a restaurant in Dubai where you feel more at home! The staff is truly like family! They have live music on the weekends- and their brunch is to die for! I heart The Ivy! Oh and BEST espresso martini Ive ever had!
