This was my first visit to
This was my first visit to Ivy Bar & Kitchen and was very impressed with the atmosphere. Really different from other Burlington restaurants. We sat inside as it is still cold out but can't wait to go back and sit outside on their garden patio. Food was very good and plan to go back and try their small plates.

We were in for an early dinner
We were in for an early dinner and my impression is that this is a great "yuppie" gathering place. While I think it's very good, and my wife and I will dine here again, it doesn't strike me as a place to go for a quiet and/or romantic dinner.

Great Food & very trendy.
Had a great night out with my wife and enjoyed our time at Ivy. Even though service was a little slow it was still pleasant and the food was very good. The dishes seemed well thought out and the plate presentation were clean and neat. The flavours of the food were well balanced ,I especially like my duck "duo" plate even though I questioned how much foie gras was in my sausage.
The servers were very attentive ,pleasant and energetic. all in all and great experience one I hope to repeat one day

Great Brunch at Ivy
We were a little hesitant going to Ivy after seeing mixed online reviews, but have absolutely no regrets now that we've gone. Sunday's brunch was an extensive buffet (not the menu posted on their website, mind you), delicious and varied, and we thought quite reasonable compared with other higher-end brunch buffets we have been to. The mussels were excellent and the Banana Bread French Toast was off-the-hook! Service was awesome and there was a very entertaining folky jazz duo as well.

Early Saturday night dinner
Our reservation was at 5 pm before going to a movie and we were the first in the restaurant. By the time we left there were several other tables occupied which is a good sign. The service was excellent. The price of food is a little high. Ordered the 2 specials - Swordfish was $24 with a small piece of fish and salad. Also ordered the pasta of the day - garlic cream sauce with chicken, asparagus and tomatoes and it was $26. Food tasted great but the prices could be a little lower for the portion sizes. Had the caprese salad and Caesar salad and both were good.

I find the food is always very tasty at Ivy and the ambiance is like a high end vacation resort. The patio is large,beautiful and private. The indoors has a stunning chandelier and a mix of low tables with couches and regular tables. The staff is also very friendly. It's a great place to hang our with friends or enjoy a special occasion.

Service was incredible
We went to celebrate my birthday & were looked after by Brooke. She was fun and professional and helped us navigate our way through the cocktail and dinner menu. Appetizers were absolutely delicious and helped set the tone for a great night of celebration. Unfortunately the main courses were a disappointment. My husband ordered the steak feature, and, although it was cooked perfectly, the meat was incredibly tough which speaks to the quality or the butchery of the meat. My mother and I had the Tagliatelle and it was okay but nothing special. My father had the duck and he was less than impressed as well. My daughter was REALLY well looked after and we were impressed with the pasta that the chef put together. Great place. Great service.

Thank you for a great evening! Everyone commented on the fresh air from your living wall...lovely!
The food was awesome. Our server was very helpful...I have several food allergies and she was able to accommodate me.
We will definitely visit again. Next time we will introduce some new friends to your restaurant.

Thursday Girls Night
Dined on Thursday and the restaurant was not busy at all. Live music was excellent, but when they went on a break the volume was a bit loud considering it was not a club night. Food and drinks were excellent, however, service was extremely slow.

Amazing brunch in burlington
Been hard pressed to find a really good breakfast place in burlington that offers above the regular breakfast chains. This place is a deal for $ 25/person. Apparently they recently decreased their price from $ 45 which is way too much to spend on breakfast/brunch. But at$ 25 it is a great deal for what they offer. Fresh made to order eggs benedict, banana bread french toast, steak.. oysters, mussels, crab legs and a ton more! it was all amazing. Will definitely go back for brunch.

Burlington's Hidden Gem
We went to Ivy Bar & Kitchen celebrating my Dad's birthday on a Monday evening. The ambiance is incredible! Spacious, modern and well lit, With service being prompt and friendly. Also noticed a great patio section -- too bad patio season is coming to an end. I imagine this place to be a bustling night scene on the weekends, which would be great, but it's also a notable spot if you are looking for mid-price fine dining with an exceptional wine list. Ivy's "Duck Duo" dish with a braised cabbage and cranberry mustard was my pick, and it was delicious! I'll definitely be coming back to see the weekend crowd.

Great place for seafood!
Ivy Bar is great place for seafood bar, even though they ran out of crabs. The oysters were amazing and the mussels were fresh. The chef at the bar was also very friendly and accommodating. The rest of the food was okay. The omelette and waffle station was also good. I found there wasn't much selection of their hot food and the bread and antipasto station just seemed abundant but plain. It was a good experience all the together; the service was pretty good as well. We'll definitely go back again for brunch.

A Place for us 40 somethings
The décor and hoping dance/bar on Friday & Saturdays is perfect crowd for the group of us north of 40 that love dancing. This ain't ball room dancing but get your heart pumping moving dance floor.
Food was fantastic, had only been here for dancing before today. Wine list is a surprize( a good one).

My second visit for Brunch
This was my second visit for Brunch. The food is excellent and the staff are super friendly. The only negative thing I could say is the tables are a little too close and it makes it difficult getting in and out to go to the buffet. The seating would be fine if you are having full table service.
I will definitely be coming back though.

our 1st time
Went for brunch last Sunday, the food was fantastic, the place is really nice, the seating was not at all private, we had a couple on either side of us, almost feels like they were at your table. (didn't bother us, we had fun meeting them, but really, maybe there was a more private spot if we had of asked.
