The Ivy ****

Birthday dessert at The Ivy

1 West Street
Covent Garden
+44 20-7836-4751 (Intl)

Cuisine: French & English

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 on occasion.

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)
into 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 entrées 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).


Private Party Room
Ivy's Private Room is ideal for Special Events and Private Parties. Treat your VIP's, Top Performers, Family or Friends to a memorable lunch or dinner here.

The private room features a reception and dining area — ideal for hosting a reception of up to 120 people. The bar can accommodate up to 60 guests for drinks, and the main dining area seats up to 60.

If you want to enjoy a relaxed, leisurely meal with great food, service and atmosphere — and make a good impression on your date, clients or business
associates — then The Ivy
is a perfect choice.

Before our last visit, we called

it...and it was WELL worth it!
