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.

Great food and a fabulous whiskey list Pleasant attentive service and lively atmosphere A little overpriced perhaps for Crouch End where rents are 35% cheaper than Soho but then I don’t know the full story If business rates were less expensive perhaps they could afford to charge less We enjoyed our visit

Very slow food service which unfortunately spoilt the flow and atmosphere of our evening. We waited over and hour between our starter and main. Service from the waitress was excellent though.

Food was lovely but service from the wine waiter was shocking. When he brought us the wrong wine he made us feel uncomfortable and as if it was our fault. We had been looking forward to eating at irvins for while as our daughter has not long moved to crouch end. Food was lovely although I wasn’t asked how I prefer steak so just as well it is med/ rare. We very rarely refuse to pay service but we did on this occasion, however we would return on another date.

Had an incredibly meal that I'd be very happy to evangelize about. One of the best steak dishes I have ever eaten. Will be back.

The food was very tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant. It was especially nice for the music to be quiet enough to be able to talk and listen with friends. The one annoyance was that the service was a little slow and I had to wait quite a while for either a menu or a drink. Otherwise a good experience overall.

I could eat the octopus every day and never get bored! Four of us all loved all courses. This is a local gem that never disappoints

.Many thanks to observant and thoughtful staff who noticed that my freedom pass had fallen out of my pocket on to the floor, and ran after us after we left to return it. The only downside was acoustics . Very noisy and difficult to hear conversations

Every course from olives through to dessert was absolutely perfect. The venison, in particular, was exceptional. Friendly staff topped off a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

Such a great restaurant - its small enough to feel warm and cute, and big enough to get busy. The service was really attentive and accommodating. And the food... just delicious all around! It’s a bit more expensive than the usual restaurant you’d go to, but its very much worth it. Will be coming back :)

Irvin is my favourite restaurant - everything is perfect, with the atmosphere and service being particularly good - they are effortlessly friendly. I would love to see them vary the menu a bit more - just because I think they are so good and would love to see what else they can turn their hand to - but I also wouldn't want classics like the haggis arrancini, scallops, duck ragu and tablet removed from the menu. Just keep doing what you are doing - it's wonderful!
