The food was fantastic! The only bad thing that we had was the Ivarita cocktail.......I would steer clear of that one.
Our entrees were excellent. Server did a great job of paying attention to our needs and making sure everyone was content.
Great Valentine’s Day with the misses.
This place is fantastic. Oh, and the King crab legs were out of this world.
Birthday. Asked for a view table and got one.
The manager, Casey Rose, stopped by our table twice. We felt like royalty. A wonderful experience.
This was a much better experience than our last visit. Great setting. Food was fantastic. Our server had a great attitude and personality though he seemed under staffed. Kitchen was slow considering the level of business
We reserved 6p for dinner on a Sunday night and were seated promptly. The meal and service were excellent. The ambiance sitting next to the window was divine.
Good food, good service, nice view, not too noisy to have a nice conversation. And reasonable prices.
The service was incredible. All off the food recommendations were excellent.
Scallops and beet salad to die for!!!
It was a birthday dinner date. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable. We love the venue, the view & the ambience.
Nice food and location, but service could be more attentive / less forgetful
Amazing service, great location and view!
Helpful server, excellent salmon. Had a great time!
Delicious, fast, friendly
Dinner at Ivar's was awesome. Food was delicious and presentation was outstanding. We don't eat out often but it seemed a little pricey to us. We took the bus and I'm glad we did because parking looked very limited.
This is a great place for a large group of people. Staff handled it beautifully!
La mejor clam Chowder que he probado
Seattle’s water front is slowly transforming since they dismantled the Viaduct. But, Ivar’s Acres of Clams has always been a city’s icon with good food and great service. This restaurant is one of our favorites in the Seattle area. This time, we took the transit bus from the Eastside for a no hassle, no fee parking. It was really convenient walking down the hill from the Central Library. The moment we walked inside, we can see and feel the history behind this restaurant. The staff is inviting and friendly. We were seated within ten minutes. Our server was on par. The Cioppino was delicious. The best part of all was enjoying the view and spending time with my family.
Great food, was very busy so service was a bit slow, but they were friendly.
New Years Eve dinner with friends. Ambience was nice, not noisy. But festive. Food was outstanding.
We were seated at a window table which was spectacular. Our waitress was wonderful. She was very attentive and friendly. The food was very delicious but, I would have liked lemon and a few more hard boiled eggs with my crab and shrimp Louie.
Outstanding fish & chip, and chowder. Service and views of Puget Sound and the ferries during the evening hours were picturesque. Will definitely return when we visit Seattle in the future.
Holiday Trip from San Francisco.
Very nice overall. My fish had a bit too much truffle oil.
Outstanding service by John T!
Great clam chowder!
Our waiter was distracted and not at all engaging. It was hard because we were asking questions (that we had to repeat) and letting him know about what we had been doing earlier in the day and he was clearly not listening and coudn't care less. The hostess was superb. Loved her.
The coconut mussel appetizer was amazing! All of the fish was high quality.
Had clam chowder sampler. And oysters everything was fresh and delicious
great birthday experience!!
this was a fantastic venue to have out team Christmas lunch. Perhaps the best thing about it was the noise level, or the complete lack their of. We will definitely be back!
Over priced. Food is average.
I prefer the lunch menu over the dinner.
Wish they would offer smaller portions of the fish and chips. You get 4 and I can only eat 2.
Had a couples night and things went really well. Server was attentive and ambiance felt good.
Excellent service and nice atmosphere
The service was great and the food was amazing! I've never had oysters so fresh before!
Ivars is a Seattle institution and a great place to bring friends and out of town guest. Remodeling the restaurant really improved the ambience. The food quality for the price is a great value with a great selection of menu items. The only minor issue was the server could’ve been a little more attentive. I will definitely be back.
