About Irvin Bar Grill

Welcome to our family run cosy restaurant in Crouch End. Our menu is a happy mix of Italian cuisine and Scottish produce expertly cooked in a contemporary, relaxed style. Our small & larger plates can be eaten as a traditional three course menu or “tapas” style, as the fancy takes you. 
We aim to cook within season & we treat produce with respect, keeping our dishes simple & beautiful. Our wines are Italian, from small growers, chosen carefully for quality and variety. We serve by the glass, caraffe of bottle. Start with a lively aperitivo from the cocktail menu and finish with a dash of vim from our nicely rounded whisky list, perfect with a slab of Scottish tablet. 
Eat & drink at a table in the dining room or at the comfy bar.

My boyfriend and I were really looking forward to coming to Irvin, after reading some really positive reviews about the food and atmosphere. However we happened to come on the same night that they had a new chef starting out. This unfortunately meant that we had to wait a whole hour and a half for our mains to come, which were extremely average and over priced. Our server did very kindly take our drinks off the bill, as a gesture of good will but I don't think we'll be coming back after that poor experience. Positives are that the restaurant looks lovely and the food presentation is really current, but that all I can really say.

We asked for recommendations & everything we tried - which was quite a bit from the menu was absolutely fantastic. We will definitely go back.

Loved the food it was really delicious would definitely come back. The only bizarre thing was the sausage starter with no garnish, it was literally a bowl of sausages, could have had half the amount of sausage. Also some bread with crab starter would be good. Otherwise fab, fish cooked to perfection, loved the lightness of bruschetta, cheesecake incredible!

Service a little slow and disjointed but improved slightly as night went on. Tables also incredibly close together. Appreciate you want to have high numbers but when you have to move your table to go to toilet, their too close. Having said that, the food is creative and delicious. The atmosphere is lively and fun.

It’s our second time at Irvin Bar Grill in three weeks because we had such a wonderful meal the first time. The second visit was just as delightful with great service, delicious combinations of food and a cosy atmosphere. Loved the Scottish/Italian cheese plate and the entrees were delicious. Will be coming back soon.

Keep it up. You’re one of the only two places in Crouch End I can see myself dining very frequently at. My wife said you’re unbeatable when it comes to atmosphere. ps: keep the duck ragu on your menu forever. Honestly: forever.
