Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter was awesome, dinner was amazing made for a great double date. Manager was noticeable also wide variety of drinks."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Attentive, personable service from Stephanie. Strong wine list with many moderately priced wines that drink well. Presentation could use a slight push to a higher level but quality of entrees was excellent. Maybe take tomatoes and eggs out of Caesar salad and replace with white anchovies and parmesan crisps?"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Presentations lovely. Appetizer and salads excellent. Bison short ribs were a bit tough. Scallops excellent."

  • "Waste of a date night & glad we had a coupon. Major complaints were 1) service was terrible. We were there for 2 hours watching as the waitress ditty bopped around 2) the restaurant is in dire need of quality ventilation. It was smoky in there the whole time 3) our glasses of water were never refilled & we weren't asked if we wanted another drink and 4) even after telling the waitress & including it in the reservation, it was my husband's bday, it never acknowledged with anything special and 5) they were out of the wine I wanted and my husbands martini was watered down. Huge let down"

  • "great service, Ezra, interesting menu, vegetarian aware, loved the decor on the log wall"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The service and food were very good. They were, however, out of the wine we ordered, one main course we ordered, and a desert we wanted. It was not that busy and not late, so I am not sure what was going on."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Crab cake appetizers were very tasty and well presented. House salad with strawberries and pears was refreshing and unusual. Lamb was cooked perfectly. However, pork special wasn’t good at all and potatoes too smoky. We had to send it back and ordered Chilean in Sea Bass instead. That came out flavorful and perfectly flaky. Unfortunately, White Chocolate Crème Brule wasn’t up the par, too runny."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and was very happy with our experience! Service was knowledgable, attentive and unobtrusive, decor is classy and fit for either a casual lunch or nice romantic evening, and the food was SUPERB! I had lamb and he had the beef tenderloin, both were impeccably prepared to order, arrived quickly, and presented with obvious care and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend this for anything from a casual lunch spot to business dinners to impress!"

  • "Beet salad and scallop entree were fabulous! Martinis and service were excellent as well!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Ivy at the Glen has excellent food,impeccable service, and beautiful surroundings --what more could you ask for? We had a wonderful evening dining on the patio overlooking a beautiful fountain-- everything was great including a visit from the restaurant owner who is intent on making sure every guest is well taken care of. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Food was OK, nothing special. We had lunch there and it was fairly slow in terms of customers, but even with that the service was very slow."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I have been to the Ivy at the Glenn 5 or 6 times in the past few years. Every time we come leave saying "we won't be back for a while". We both have worked in the service industry and this place needs a lot of work! We decided to try the restaurant again after about a year lapse from the last time we ate there, we were sadly disappointed again: 1.) Please fix the hoods in your kitchen... the restaurant is ALWAYS unbelievably smokey and for someone who has sensitive eyes and wears contacts, it ruins the dining experience. 2.) Train your staff... from the hostesses to the managers. You charge WAY too much to not have great service. 3.) Consistency in food. My lamb was fatty and each chop was a different temp."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Overall the food was great. I was a little confused by the heavy-handed amount of roasted garlic with the Caesar salad, but it worked out alright. The main course was the highlight by far, and the pecan pie was good as a more mild dessert, but I would try a different one next time. The service, on the other hand, was lackluster. I could tell the waiter knew what he was doing, but he must have been having an off night. From small things, like only providing 1 steak knife when we both needed one, to the larger, such as adding our neighbors' wine to our bill, he was having issues all night. I am hoping our next visit will be better, if we choose to return. The food was certainly good though. "

  • "This is an over priced restaurant for very poorly prepared food. The bread and oil starter was non-discript. The scallops ($32)were burned on the bottom and undercooked on the top the saffron risotto had no flavor or creaminess to it - tasted like just yellow overlooked rice. The asparagus (&6)was burned - the first plate never should have come out of the kitchen! The second plate wasn't much better. The waiter was fine but seemed uncomfortable. This was a VERY expensive meal! We will never return and I would suggest that you take your business elsewhere. "

  • "My wife and I went to Ivy on the Glen to celebrate our anniversary. The food was really good, had one of the best ceasar salads ever. My wife had steak and I had rack of lamb, we shared and both where great. Staff was nice and friendly. Had not been to the reaturant before and was a little nervus becouse it was our anniversary and wanted to good night and that is what we had."

  • "We went for our 20th anniversary and it was amazing! The food was great!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I've been wanting to try this place and it was disappointing. Everything was just okay...nothing I would recommend or go back for. Lamb was ok- sauce was the best part. The lamb was about 1/2 fat. The scallops were cooked properly but very small for $32. Salads were just "eh". Crab cakes were pretty good and probably what I enjoyed most. Dessert was a chocolate cake that was good but nothing to write home about. Service started well but got a little slower as the restaurant filled up. I think they only had two waiters working."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was very good and the waiter was outstanding. Very pricey though."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Waitress was MIA most of the evening. Took forever to get the water glasses filled on several occasions. Ran out of Riesling and took almost ten minutes to get another drink. When the bartender was asked if the waitress was new, he responded, "no, we are just swamped." It was a Sunday evening and there were only four tables occupied outside and six inside (mostly parties of two) and a party of eight in a small dining area. If that is "swamped" then we will take our business elsewhere. When the bill came, we were charged for the second glass of Riesling we never received. Then, when we received the final check, the detail was not provided. My wife had to go inside and get the detail to verify the bill. "

  • "Great food and ambience. Although prices are not super cheap, it's not overly expensive either and portions and food quality and taste are top notch. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Thank goodness the company I was with was awesome! The food wasn't worth the price, the restaurant was understaffed, and frustrated and they really didn't care who knew about it. We're at the restaurant for three hours and had to ask about every phase of our meal! Very disappointing, an anniversary dinner we can never get back!"

  • "The area under our table was notably dirty. The window blinds were speckled with with small dead flies - but we needed the blinds lowered because of the sun. We waited for about 15 minutes before I finally asked for a waiter to come to our table. We placed our order & 30 minutes later I inquired about the delivery of the meal. The waiter said it would be another 10 minutes. I asked when he placed the order and he said he "may have placed it late." We were just about to walk out when they finally delivered out meal. The food quality was actually good, but there is no possibility that I could recommend this restaurant or that I would go back. "

  • "we had an excellent dinner at "Ivy' this was my 2nd time dining here an my familys 1st. Everything from salad to lamb chops to scallops were great Especially wonderful was the white choc crème brulee for dessert . we will be back"

  • "Had reservations for Dinner on Mothers Day, stood in line 15 minutes, host had no idea where to sit the other 5 parties waiting even though there where plenty of tables. Host claimed someone stole the menus, finally sat us at the only table without a table cloth, with glasses that dirty, no wait staff in sight, could tell it was only going to get worse so we got up and walked out."

  • "We truly enjoy coming to The Ivy at Southglenn. Excellent quality of food and ambiance. Good variety and pricing on the wine list. Service is superb make sure you ask for a table with "Wisconsin" "

  • "Thanks very much for a relaxing Sunday dinner. The drinks, lamb chops and filet were all delicious. Very relaxing place (other than mishap with the cd skipping). We will definitely be back. It would only be more perfect if you could add a rooftop patio."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We visited Ivy at the Glenn for my husband's birthday. We had never visited there before. The waiter allowed us to sample several by the glass. The Sea Bass special was an extraordinary mix of flavors and textures. It was truly amazing. We ordered a pecan tart. The waiter put a candle in it. What a special evening. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The atmosphere was nice and quiet but the food was just OK. Only one soup to choose from and it was very spicy green chili. On a cold day a cup of soup would have been great. Very accommodating and service was good. Great location by the fountain. I like the 1/2 option with sides - reasonably priced. Pulled pork sandwich is delicious!"

  • "The food here is great! We ate there on Friday night, when other restaurants are full. This one was empty."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We have been to Ivy at the Glenn a few times now for their brunch, and it is always excellent. The service is terrific, friendly and unobtrusive. Our only (minor!) issue is that the tables are too high for the bench/booth seats - they brought extra cushions immediately, which helped immensely. We'll be going back soon - and we will ask for our same server, Ezra!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We were pleasantly surprised at the vast selection of items for the Easter Brunch buffet. From tasteful extra large cocktail shrimp, crab legs, bacon wrapped scallops, to eggs Benedict, fresh made waffles and omelets everything was great. The only thing I noticed that could be improved is that the food could have been warmer. Also, it would be nice if the owner came to each table and said hello and thank you for coming. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "A restaurant not large enough for one buffet station should squeeze in three? I don't care to eat food that someone had their shoulder lean against just to walk by. If an omelette station is provided train the person how to make one. I don't think many adults want to sit at a table like I did that requires moving a booster seat to get out ! To charge $50 a plate maybe leveling the table would be a good idea . "

  • "I have been hesitant to try this place given the price of the menu. It didn't seem to fit with Southglenn. The ambiance is good, ceilings are high and it has a nice feel. We brought our 6 year old daughter and I was glad they had a kid's menu. Our server wasn't great, pretty slow and they were out of a few things and couldn't substitute one potato for another...at those prices I would expect more. Disappointed. If I'm going to pay those prices I want to be impressed with food and service. Food was good, but nothing exceptional. Probably won't return."

  • "It's in our neighborhood, we had never been there. We walked by, looked at the menu and decided to try it for brunch. We made a reservation for 10 am, there was only two other couples there. Early - yes. The brunch/breakfast was wonderful! The praline bacon was to die for! Like candy. My husband had crab Benedict which he found yummy and very filling. My eggs were perfect. My only issue was - it was freezing! The a/c was on full blast! Our waiter suprised us at the very end with two mini ice cream cones of French vanilla ! Would we go back - yes. But we would defiantly bring a sweater, Would love to try it for dinner."
