We had a lovely anniversary dinner here, accompanied with cocktails. The service was professional but friendly, and the food was delicious. It was lovely and quiet and it felt private despite there being quite a few other coupled there. We would recommend as we had a wonderful experience.

I had a Christmas night out here, on the set menu ladies night. The food was absolutely delicious! Service was less good... a server when pouring my wine got distracted by a male member of staff and poured a steady stream of wine all over my hand and the table instead of into my glass. Didn't even look around to... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at the Ivy with my husband. The food is just delicious and the ambience was lovely. Although it's a classy place it wasn't pretentious at all and the waiting staff were very good.

The Ivy is a classic offering a wonderful menu selection and the service is always excellent. Dined there last night, party go ten, as usual all was fantastic, however by 8:30 with only half the tables full the Buttered Chicken had ran out! Apparently they only make one batch in a day!

The Ivy offers a 6 course brunch with wine pairing and its worth every penny. Food is perfect, cocktails are awesome, theres smoking at the bar and perfect "Michael Bubble-esque" entertainment. Please don't leave!

The Ivy in Dubai is sadly a very poor relation of it's esteemed relative in London, and perhaps that's the reason it's closing down. What lets it down, however, isn't really in it's control - it's the atmosphere. The Ivy in London works because it's intimate, it's buzzing, it's the place to be seen. Here in the UAE it's sadly...
