Diner Reviews
  • "My girlfriend and I ended our week away from reality with brunch at the Ivy. Service, food and ambience were top notch."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The Ivy takes familiar restaurant selections to high levels of quality and taste albeit at equally high prices. Notwithstanding the cost, there is value and satisfaction. Service is professional and familiar considering a fair amount of visitors to LA frequent this long standing popular Hollywood spot. Attractive heated outside and inside seating, valet parking and great desserts complete an enjoyable dining experience, night and day."

  • "The food was amazing and the Ivy pink sauce is a must! The decor is eclectic and peaceful. Great Spot! The only thing missing was a celebrity!"

  • "the owner came over to us immediatly and gave us a better table also talked to us for 10 minutes she could not have been friendlier"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "A beautiful setting and large food selection. All of their ingredients are top shelf and you can taste it in every bite. Over the top service, the music was a little loud, but we were right by the speaker. Yummmmm!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Bright and fresh... The environment puts a smile on your face, the chefs selections are creative and refreshing... And the service is seemless and friendly. A very welcoming experience."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The price may be a bit higher, however, the food is quite nice, fresh, homemade, and really tasty. I would suggest to dining here on special event or occasion."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Dining at The Ivy was an overall outstanding experience. The feeling that an exquisite taste stays with you for hours and that digestion is easier makes me want to go back very soon!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Amazing food, drinks were to die for and the best part of the night was our server! He was so great and made our night exactly what we wanted!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The Ivy is always a favorite with my friends for a special occasion or splurge for a girl's day. Food is predictably good and the occasional Star Sighting always a possibility. Fresh cut multi colored roses a daily appearance as is complimentary champagne while you wait for your table. Often a bit rushed as the staff does want to turn the tables as quickly as possible. Nearby shopping is a treat and the patio is a must."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "This once LA hot-spot with coveted tables has certainly Lost its appeal at least when it comes to food quality and presentation. Mesquite grilled salmon - mediocre at best, codfish entree undercooked and greasy 3 stars only because the setting is gorgeous and the waitstaff was excellent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Food was good, not great. Many choices on menu for picky eaters which I like. Atmosphere lovely. I would come back again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I love The Ivy's festive vibe, but the tables are situated a bit close for comfort, that is unless you are bumping elbows with a celebrity. Michael Kors was dining a table away. The food was a bit disappointing for the price, but I guess it is more about the overall experience than the actual meal at The Ivy. The servers are very attentive but not intrusive. Although I wouldn't dine at The Ivy regularly, it was worth the splurge for this Long Beach resident to enjoy a day out with friends in Beverly Hills."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food very much. The patio was delightful but we could have done without the earthquake."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I took 3 friends visiting LA there for lunch. The service was just ok at best, the food was ok, and the wine was great! Would go again for cocktails..."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Have dined here a few times. Consistently great food, fantastic cocktails, and excellent service! this time was no different. we sat out on the patio on a beautiful sunny day. i usually get the vegetable salad but this time my brother and i got 2 favs on the menu - fried chicken & fish & chips...both were incredibly delicious! usually you spot a "somebody" famous dining there but not this time. definitely pricey but always a treat and worth it every time!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The location and the food are outstanding. My girlfriend and I were there for Sunday brunch, and we really enjoyed the sun and the atmosphere of their beautiful patio. We ate two incredibly good omelettes with fresh crab and champagne... simply the best."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We could choose to be inside or outside. The terrace is very nice. Our witer was Crhistophe. He is from Belgian and speaks French. He gave us very good advice about the food. We choose the lobster. 1 per person ! It was very big ! But delicious. The others guests were very nice too. We will return back definitively."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The Ivy carries with it expectation - it met some, not all. My teenage daughter and I had a French waiter who was somewhat dismissive of her. It was actually kind of rude. He clearly did not take us very seriously as this is typically a celebrity haunt. It was a middle of the week dinner, and the restaurant was not at all crowded. Still, he was less than interested in us. That said, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful - a warm evening outside. I recommend the food and the location. Hopefully, your service will be different than ours."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I was very surprised that the food was so bad. Their fish & chips were delicious in the past but way over cooked with no flavor. And the fries were just awful. Won't be back!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Loved the Onion Rings and Guacamole! We were there to celebrate my 10 year anniversary with my job. It was a wonderful afternoon. Will be back there again soon!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The fresh flowers, antiques, vibrant colors and eclecticism give this place the most lovely and unique style. It's the kind of place that you feel special in, just because of the atmosphere. Oh, and the food and drinks are good too!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The Ivy is always the perfect choice for cozy dinners for 2 or more. The place just makes me happy ! Hundreds of fresh roses, comfortable chairs, wonderful service. It may be expensive but it's worth it. Star sightings every time we've been there !"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Starters great...very interesting well prepared. Main courses weak... cod was soggy and fish and chips served with fries not chips even though that is how many establishments do it...and frightfully expensive. $35 for fish and chips is outrageous. Luckily having been there for lunch I know it is better than dinner. I was entertaining out of town guests from New England...they were semi impressed. I will not do dinner again but lunch is ok."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I booked a reservation at The Ivy while on a girl's trip to LA. From reading reviews on Trip Advisor, it sounded like the place to see celebrities. We were there on a Monday evening for dinner, so there were no celebrities, but plenty of people, so we knew it must be good. It exceeded my expectations as far as the service, the ambience, and the overall experience. The flowers at every table and throughout the restaurant are amazing! Our waiter was great, thd drinks were the prettiest in all of LA, and was overall our best dining experience of the week.! I would recommend a table outside for the best views. It is a must see in LA, and I will go back!"

  • "Been here many time and was dissatisfied with the food ordered. Waiter was not as attentive like before."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "the ivy was very good. the place is beautiful but the food was average at best and way over priced. if you want to say "I've been to the ivy" have at it."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Excellent seafood platter with lobster, scallops, shrimps etc."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I really thought that the restaurant would be passable considering it is a hollywood tourist attraction, but I was so amazed at how wonderful the food is, the service is outstanding, the restaurant is beautiful and I couldnt get over the beautiful roses...EVERYWHERE. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Been going to the Ivy off and on for the last 25 years and have to say it ain't what it used to be. Seems like it has become more of a place for be at then a place to eat at. My meal was just ok definitely not worth the price. It took 4 tries to get my drink right and even then it was not right, and I got tired of sending it back. And it was simple - Henrick's martini straight up, stirred. Simple. I took my parents there for a special occasion and the meal ended up being anything but special. The Ivy needs to focus on what made them great and not what the celebrity blogs, TV shows and magazines make it out to be."

  • "I have had terrific service and great food past 30 years..."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner immensely at Ivy. The ambiance was spectacular and the service terrific. The food was to die for. We'll be back."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The ambiance, food, decor, scenery, and service were unreal. I forgot when I ordered that they are known for fried chicken, and being from the south, and I don't mean southern california, I mean ALABAMA, I know good fried chicken when I see or taste it. So I made my husband get it. Not disappointed. I eat here every time I'm in L.A. Fresh roses on every table and every square foot where anything could be placed, also added to the beauty."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The food was average at best. Far too expensive for the quality."
