Beautiful!Went here to celebrate Father's Day. Great food, beautiful atmosphere. We sat outside on the terrace, covered in Ivy. I had the perch which was the best I've ever had. My husband had the Filet and shrimp and said it was fabulous as well. We would love to come back again!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite restaurantThis my go-to restaurant - With friends, with family, and for business lunches. If I'm there for lunch, I order the salmon salad with asparagus on top. Delicious.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing FoodEverything was delicious. The beef carpaccio was a great start. Both of our entrees were spectacular. The banana crusted halibut with sweet potatoes and spinach was outstanding. It was the special that night, and if it were on the menu again I would go specifically to have it. My husband had the crab topped tilapia - also outstanding. The food was so good we had to try dessert - a decadent chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream. very chocolaty, so we couldn't eat a lot of it, but the combination was delicious. Our server was great. Very attentive and had great recommendations. We found this place by chance, but will definitely be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience at The IvyThis was our first time at the restaurant, ambiance is beautiful and unique, service was personable yet professional, food was wonderful. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend going here. We are already looking forward to going back, and sitting outside on patio next time.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, but...I think Ivy is one of 2 good restaurants in Wheaton. It has everything you look for - good food, great service, and a nice ambience. It is a can't miss choice.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst-Time Visit, We'll Be BackBooked a table here as it's right across the street from the Wheaton Drama theater and we had tickets for "Into the Woods" (it's worth seeing btw). They had a nice selection of dishes and the ambiance was relaxing. The service was prompt, courteous and friendly but not intrusive. The bill was just under $90 for two with one drink and one app. I had the diver scallops which were excellent and my partner was very happy with his ribs and fries. I would definitely consider them the next time we're seeing a show or want to go out for a nice meal.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMthe Ivy experienceThe building has a history, and I had heard good things about the restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, but since our table was ready, we were seated right away. Our server was friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The service was very good. We did however find the noise level to be a bit much for our tastes. We started with an order of calamari. It came out light crisp and pipping hot. They have a nice wine list, and are helpful in aiding your selection. Their lamb chops, were every bit as good as I'd been told, and were presented nicely. We were there to celebrate birthdays, and I am happy with our choice to dine at Ivy. I would definitely return, and will recommend it to others.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant!We wanted to venture a little out from our hometown and looked at some of Wheaton's higher rated restaurants. I chose Ivy for some of its reviews on Trip Advisor and end up loving it! The food was fantastic. I had the twin filet tournedos and my wife had the specialty peach chicken. She would NEVER order chicken out as we have this at home frequently, but the preparation with the blackened chicken, polenta cakes and peach chutney were out of this world. My dinner was good and we shared the turtle brownie dessert, which was big enough for at least four folks to share. Would definitely recommend.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantWe loved the cozy ambiance of this restaurant from the moment we arrived. The hostess was friendly and sat us almost right away (we had a reservation but were early). The waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The bruschetta was delicious, the butternut squash ravioli was to-die-for and the shrimp and lobster papardelle was equally scrumptious. The chef's desert flight was equal parts beauty and flavor. We would definitely return to try more of their dishes and would definitely recommend this restaurant to all food lovers.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's lunch on the patioThere were 10 of us and we sat on the patio for a beautiful lunch. I've been here several times, food and service is always excellent. Thanks Ivy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNice and quaintThis was a first time visit to Ivy, recommended by a friend. I had the Ahi Tuna salad and it was EXCELLENT with slices of ginger and not too much dressing. I had lunch with 6 ladies, all of our food was great, great service and the outside dining was perfect. Overall would definitely come here again for a nice luncheon or any other event.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dining experience!Ivy's has it all! The selections on the menu vary from season to season, but always include something special along with traditional items. The food is always well-prepared and delicious. The building is beautiful inside and includes spaces for private events. The outside patio is lovely and relaxing, and often features musicians. Dick and Carol are friendly and welcoming - we are always treated like a special guest, and the service is excellent. You can't go wrong.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerIvy is great for any occasion or anytime. The outdoor dining area is also very nice. I have been to the Ivy several times and always enjoyed it. Seafood or steaks excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FindThe food is superb and superbly prepared! You cannot leave without having the Parmesan Crusted Tomatoes! They are very accomodating and have amazing lunch sandwiches as well as entrees.

So glad we got the table near the fireplace.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Ivy and we were worried that they were not open due to the floods. Everything was very nice. We all enjoyed our meals and the carpaccio appetizer which all 4 of us shared. The food is tasty and attractively presented. The portions are not outrageous, but even so, I had to bring half my dinner home. The ambiance of the restaurant is what makes the whole effect perfect.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMalthough our reservationsalthough our reservations were later in the evening, they made us feel very welcomed. the owner or manager even came over to acknowledge our "special occassion" which was our daughter's confirmation. the service was very friendly and the food excellent; good ambiance too4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDined on a Sunday eveningDined on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was quite empty. Service and food very good for the most part. "Jumbo" shrimp served with steak were not large and luke warm. Ribs and fish special were well prepared and delicious. Desserts (key lime pie and creme brulle) were not impressive, but the raspberry sorbet was spot on. Overall, an enjoyable evening. Will return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWe decided to take some out-of-town visitors to "Ivy". Our Sunday "brunch" was delicious. Our waiter, Greg, was outstanding.

Other than that, it was a great evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, great varietyWonderful food, great variety and great flavors. Excellent wine list that was reasonably priced.

They go out of their way to be sure you are enjoying your dining experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDear Open Table, You canDear Open Table,
You can feel free to recommend the Ivy in Wheaton, IL as a wonderful dining experience. For a party of 4, and with liberal cocktails and an appetizer for the table, our bill was very reasonable, per diner. AND, my request for a comfortable corner booth to accommodate my 90-year old dad's frail (formerly broken) back was honored AND they set the table so beautifully for his wedding anniversary, right down to the "happy anniversary" table cloth. It was a wonderful experience. Now, it's a "go to" whenever we dine in Wheaton.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, waiter hadFantastic food, waiter had great recommendations, and we enjoyed it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought three friends withI brought three friends with me who had not been to Ivy before. Three of us had the lamb chop lunch entree and the price amazed them. All said they want to come back and one of them is considering having a family graduation celebration in the patio room. Even though the restaurant was nearly full, we were able to converse at a normal volume. That isn't possible in many places.
