In February this year I visited the Ivy Soho Brasserie for the first time. In fact, my first time to any of the Ivy restaurants. Most people are familiar with the ‘Traditional Ivy’, the first one which is based in Covent Garden. Since the opening of this restaurant in 1917 the group have since established themselves as a modern British restaurant brand comprising of Grills and Brasseries, and Cafes. There are 23 Grills and Brasseries and 5 Cafes in total across the UK.
My Fiancé and I went for dinner in the Soho Brasserie on a Friday night and we had a great experience. We both like an uplifting environment, with a diversity of people and an overall good atmosphere, this restaurant certainly offers that. Whilst we dined there was a DJ playing house music in the background which made for a pleasant, relaxed but energetic vibe. Located in the heart of Soho on Broadwick St, one of Soho’s most popular areas, and one of my personal favourites.
We had a good table towards the back of the restaurant and enjoyed a three-course meal with some champagne. We chose the Smoked Salmon and Mozzarella to start, followed by Lamb and Chicken Milanese for main. Both of us went for a chocolate treat for dessert. The menu was big with a lot of choice.
It was a wonderful experience and I’d highly recommend to anybody looking for a Central London restaurant option. Ideal for a romantic meal or a group dining experience. We will certainly be booking up to dine at the other locations.
