Description & Atmosphere
Popular and trendy, this upscale "after-theater" restaurant
and bar is a great place for star-spotting and people-watching. Come
here to celebrate a special occasion. You might be dining next to someone
famous Madonna and Victoria Beckham ("Posh" Spice,
British Soccer star David Beckham's wife) have both dined here
No photography is allowed inside The Ivy to protect the privacy
of celebrities. Alana celebrated a "Big" Birthday
here, so we asked if we could take a photo of her Chocolate Fudge dessert
(top photo), as a memento of our meal.
Our waiter obliged by taking the dessert plate (and our camera)
the kitchen and snapping a photo there classy and obliging.
Fabulous eclectic cuisine a combination of French and English.
Appetizers include Sautéed Foie Gras, Plum Tomatoes & Basil,
Steak Tartare, Caviar and Mixed Sashimi.
A sample of their amazing
include a delicious Salmon FishCake, Shepherd's Pie, Thai-Baked Sea
Bass, Herb-Crusted Cod, Saddle of Lamb, and more. And...we have
it on good authority that their Hamburgers are good too — but
that's the last thing we'd order in London!
Desserts are decadent. We recommend the Chocolate Soufflé yummy!
Sticky Toffee Pudding is another menu favorite. And if you like "savory" dishes,
try the Welsh Rarebit (Alana loves it).
