SquareMeal Review of The Ivy Café Marylebone

Readers seem more taken with The Ivy Chelsea Garden, but there’s plenty to recommend this classy brand extension. Marylebone loves a grand café, and all the details – heavy silverware, nets at the windows, huge floral sprays – are present and correct. A generous walk-in policy ensures that impulsive passers-by can click-clack over the expensively tiled floor and take a seat among shiny framed prints. Breakfast is a treat and, not surprisingly, there’s a strong comfort element to the rest of the menu; if you crave fishcakes, shepherd’s pie, duck curry or a hamburger, they’ve got your back. Meanwhile, cleaner eaters will find simply grilled fish and healthy-sounding salads (perhaps kale, quinoa, avocado and mixed seeds with ponzu dressing). The wine list is short but serviceable, cocktails include a three-strong Negroni tasting set, service combines formality with warmth, and they’re great with kids – “something for everyone” in fact.

I was lucky to have lunch twice here over the holidays, and can only sing it's praises. I was ill the first time I went and on a restricted diet, so thought I would have to suffer eating just a slice of bread while my husband ate like a king, but the waitress was very kind and spoke to the kitchen and they grilled me a piece of Dover sole, which tasted wonderful - so thank you!. The Ivy Cafe has an extensive menu, with just about every kind of food I love (and they are open for weekend breakfast / brunch). Shepherds pie, grilled Dover sole (with lemon, capers and butter) and Zucchini fritti are so far the stand out dishes for me, but everything that went past me on a plate I want to try. The staff are attentive and on both occasions it was packed to the rafters with groups of all ages, Christmas shoppers and a line of incredulous locals turning up without a booking, shocked to be turned away with cries of "but I have eaten here many times before, surely you can find me a table". This is our new favourite local, no doubt we will visit again and again (but we will book in advance)!
