There’s something very full circle about this Ivy site, which is the second to possess the ‘Garden’ moniker after The Ivy Chelsea Garden. It was Vintage Salt under previous tenant Des McDonald, who himself used to be head chef at – you guessed it – The Ivy. Located right by Liverpool Street station in serene Bishopsgate Gardens, the space incorporates a restaurant, bar, private dining room and the namesake garden, all decked out in the brand’s well-groomed, colourful interiors. A long, cuisine-leaping menu features everything from the famous shepherd’s pie to tuna carpaccio; ask one of the one-the-ball waiters for advice if you’re stumped what to order. We’d recommend prawn tempura pepped up with a matcha tea sauce and sprinklings of green papaya, edamame beans and cucumber shavings, and a generously portioned main of perfectly-cooked lobster with a side of rich truffle-and-parmesan-topped thick-cut chips. Dessert was a real showstopper, a chocolate bombe on a bed of milk foam, soft vanilla ice cream and sticky-sweet shards of honeycomb, melted at the table with a hot salted-caramel sauce. Vibrant surrounds (including a DJ) help this incarnation of The Ivy keep up with its younger City counterparts, and for big groups there’s a 32-cover private dining room upstairs which overlooks the garden.

    It was our first time at and the service was great with a lovely atmosphere. We were sat just in the conservatory ' which was lovely - between the main restaurant area and the bar. The food was delicious - between up we had steak, fish cakes and shepherd's pie for the mains and some lovely desserts - though my chocolate allergy was overlooked when I ordered lie apple tart fine... there were chocolate crispy crunch balls on top. Oops. It was delicious though! And very dramatic when it was flambed! The chocolate bomb was a close second! Should have videoed that too!

    My first ever Ivy visit was lovely at The Ivy City Gardens. Our server, Manuela, was friendly, professional, and kind. I will definitely be back. Great service, tasty artesian food, and a lovely atmosphere to spend a great evening dining with friends. Recommended.

    I came here for lunch on New Year’s Day with my family. The service was fast, and the food was very delicious. There were 8 of us in total and we all really enjoyed what we ordered. I don’t drink alcohol and so I greatly appreciated that there were many nonalcoholic (mocktail) options available. The atmosphere of the restaurant was amazing and we will definitely be returning in the future. Especially during busy seasons, making a reservation well in advance is essential. The restaurant was unavailable for walk-ins on the day and was fully booked.

    Place has a pleasant atmosphere, stuff is friendly but food… let down … fish I had was tasteless, no seasoning! I think their chef is 12 yo … really … Starter was a whole mozarella with chicory and some balsamic vinegar😑🫤 ..Desert … I don’t even know how to describe it, it was not near what I have ordered, profiteroles looked like two buns with ice-cream inside! - I left the restaurant hungry! Never again sorry.
