80th & Ivy Modern Kitchen
Some awesome apps, good mains...butSome awesome apps, good mains...but no stand out main dishes. It gets crazy loud, they seem to crank background music over the convos... The place is beautiful, the wait staff, host, even kitchen staff come around to ask how things are ... I'd prefer them to lower the background music, get a bit better on how to use their lighting (lots of lights, but no mood set with them), and get a few signature mains. It's def good all around, i just see the potential for it to be great with only a little something more12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be visiting againReally good food and super friendly staff! I had a groupon and they didn't treat me like I was a cheap-o like other places do when you bring up the word coupon. I've been wanting to try this place for a while and I would go back on a busy night to check out the bar side. This is what we needed for that part of 17th avenue... A modern restaurant that serves fresh semi-healthy food. Great job! I'll be coming back for sure!7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSunny day lunchThe room is open and friendly and light with an open kitchen. the server was personable, friendly and attentive but we were in no hurry enjoying a long and relaxing lunch. The menu had lots of enticing choices. The Ivy salad and beet and goat cheese salads were both rated highly, especially enjoyed the yellow beets. The regular coffee was very good and the sticky toffee pudding with Amaretto ice cream that we shared was delicious, not too sweet. One minor criticism was the noise level (conversation) when the place was full but it didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the meal.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Mother's Day Brunch!We dined here for Mother's Day and the food and service were both terrific. Loved the special touches like free Mimosas for Moms! Will definitely be returning to try the dinner menu. Awesome atmosphere and loved the hooks under the tables to hang purses (a clever detail).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Flavors & Friendly StaffI took my parents for Mothers Day and we all really enjoyed our food and drinks. The server was great even though she was new. Everyone was smiling and made us feel welcome. Food came out pretty fast and loved every bit of everything we ordered. Can't wait to go back and have the pear and Gorgonzola flatbread (delicious).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, excellent service,Great food, excellent service, and very good decor.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodReally enjoyed the experience. Would love to have a small family event there but TOO noisy5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGoing back ASAPI absolutely was over impressed by 80th & Ivy. I had heard from a few friends that it was a good place but it beat out my expectations. The services was great, the food even better and the atmosphere was beautiful (taking a few decorating idea for my own house). Prices were very fair considering the quality of food you are eating!
Overall a great night with a great friend and I plan on taking my man there too.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were totally impressedWe were totally impressed with everything,though it was noisy, it still will not deter us.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time and definitelySecond time and definitely will be back.
The only draw back is the seating is a bit too close to each other...could over hear bits of conversation at next tables. And in all fairness...have not been to any place in Calgary where that does not happen.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Place, as well asAwesome Place, as well as Carlos the Manager was very welcoming1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
