I booked a table for two and when I got there they gave me at seat at the bar, even though they still had open tables. What was the point of booking in advance if they were going to just stick me at the bar?! When I asked if they could move me to the other free tables they dismissed my question and didn't even acknowledge my request! THE WORST SERVICE! Needless to say my friend and I left immediately. Don't waste your time going there!
Very nice. Loved the brussel sprouts and baked dates.
The restaurant was running a boozy party event on the day my wife and I went. They have a great brunch with a chef station that was a big hit with my friends.
Very enjoyable, great hostess and servers and a fantastic lunch
The food was pretty good but a couple but a couple of the brunch buffet items were crazy salty
We haven't been here in awhile, and were in on a Saturday morning shortly after opening. Service was very slow and inattentive (and we were the only table), and the food took 45 minutes. In addition, the OpenTable profile for the restaurant talks about a Saturday and Sunday brunch buffet with carving stations. We were there on a Saturday, but the didn't have it. We recommend they update to the correct info. Food as very good, smaller portions than in past, but good.
Business lunch, 8 people, only 3 tables in the entire restaurant. It took the restaurant over 2 hours to serve us a 2 course lunch and we did not even receive the menu options for the last course of the lunch menu.
Extremely poor service.
Some orders were incorrect and items forgotten.
At 8 people, we were the largest table and only got checked in on twice.
Mean while the manager was visible, at the bar wine tasting!
Service was excellent. Bottomless mimosa's were great. Some of the food at the buffet was great and some of it overdone in my opinion. Good value for price overall.
Enjoyed the live music as always
Loved the live music
Food and service was great! Our server, Julie was awesome. We went for live music and will most definitely be back to enjoy more amazing food items.
Went here for dinner, drinks, and live music (Christian Hudson) for New Year's Eve. It was all very good. I definitely recommend the steak bites, Greek ribs, and chorizo flatbread. They also had a brisket on their feature menu which was quite delicious. The food was very flavourful and great for sharing. I'll definitely go back.
It was a great night!
Always enjoy it!! Would like to see more entrees / nightly specials as I am there often thanks to Say Word and like variety, especially when I eat out. The staff is OUTSTANDING ... friendly, accessible, water glass always filled, often asked if we need anything else. You ROCK it!!
Wonderful service, great food and good atmosphere. Went at lunch time and had ordered the lunch special of including a soup/salad, flatbread/sandwich and desert for $15. Worth the deal!
Great oysters, great service. The steak bites are delicious!!
Went for the Sunday brunch and we'd definitely go back. Good value for 20 dollars. Really enjoyed the interactive stations!
A little disappointed was basically pub food, not good for a date night; Greek ribs to start were good , they were out of the prime rib so we shared a flat bread it was alright and the ivy burger ; burger was nothing special . The drinks were over priced , service was below average we were without food and drinks for quite a while before she finally came back for a dessert and coffee order, but the dessert was the highlight by far
The server we had was very nice but very, very slow. Food was not bad but the kitchen was out of rotisserie chicken at 730 on a Friday when this is apparently one of their signature dishes. Overall experience was okay but given how many other restaurants are in the area there is no reason to go back. One positive is that the bartender makes a solid negroni.
Highly recommend the Tempure Snap Peas! Very nice and attentive servers! A little pricey but overall I loved it!
Regret to say I was really disappointed in the overall experience. I have eaten here before and always enjoyed it. First disappointment was that we were only offered seating in the bar which is quite different from the upstairs (much nicer there). I suspect this was due to keeping the few customers there in one place as a convenience to the server. My guests ordered to much special which was quite good, but my Ceasar Salad was disappointing - just a big bunch of romaine slices with way to much dressing, two cold pieces of bacon and some chicken on the side.
Service was average at best
Unlikely to go back.
The live music is very nice, but really too loud to allow for conversation between people at tables located in the main dining area - we were yelling at each other to communicate.
We went on a Wednesday and they offer great value on 6oz glasses of wine. Service was very good. Had the mussels and ribs. The sauce with the ribs is very garlicky so be ware otherwise everything was very enjoyable will be back
The food was great except we were the only ones in the restaurant, unfortunately.
Lovely place but a little too loud for conversation. Food just basic pub food and and just average at that. Great if you want to drink and listen to music
Very impressed with this place! We can here for date night last Friday nights. Food was amazing and loved the new cocktails we tried and our waitress was very helpful and down to earth and gave us good feedback on menu questions. To top it off band was fabulous ... this is now my favourite new place.. don't miss it!
One of my favourite hot spots, this dual toned modern - chic kitchen. They host unique events are carry a decent menu for such a small open kitchen. We had the chorizo and red pepper flat bread, as well as the grilled pita and cheese dip - paired with garlic parmesan fries and finally the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake dessert - heavenly!!! This place is to die for!
Food was ok but service was poor even though the restaurant was not that busy. It took 1.5 hours for them to take our order and drinks were brought about 20 minutes after we would order them. They were out of menu items and we ordered espressos after dinner and our server said the machine wasn't turned on.
80th and Ivey has excellent food, friendly servers and great value. I highly recommend it, especially for the daily lunch special.
Great lunch, service was exceptional. Knowledgable friendly staff. Patio on busy street, sunny & warm. Tasty food, would like to see more local wines beers ciders etc
Fabulous little gem of a restaurant. Totally brilliant and inventive kitchen. Great cocktails. Well worth it.
I had a totally lovely lunch by myself on the patio. Great service. Fun people watching. Booked a table for next week.
80th&Ivy is my favourite hotspot. It is always a great night out with some good eats. Don't forget to try the steak bites.
Scallops and bacon wrapped dates for starters were very good. Wife got the half chicken and mash, very good. I had the Sat night special of the 12 oz prime rib and was quite disappointed with it. Meat was a little flavourless and a very poor yorkshire pudding for 34$, would not order again.
The Greek ribs are amazing!!!
Say Word nights are busy and have some great live poetry to take in.
Thank you .... great evening to sit out on patio. Had we sat inside it may have been too noisy for those in the party who are hard of hearing and need a quieter place.
Excellent food, terrific value, lovely outdoor patio and excellent service..Highly recommended!!
The upstairs dining area appeared to be closed and they were seating everyone in the lounge area so it got very noisy. When I booked, I expected the upstairs, more quiet atmosphere. But food and service were still excellent.
We really enjoyed our evening. The food was delicious and we liked being able to see in to the kitchen. Service was excellent.
