This is literally the first review I think I've EVER written. This restaurant is so beyond gorgeous. The food and wine was all perfect & delicious, but the ambiance is UNREAL. I've lived in LA my whole life and gone to Skybar a million times but for some reason never eaten here and I'm SO glad I did. Beyond perfect for a date night. Incredible views, with plants & lights everywhere. My new favorite restaurant FOR SURE. Expensive but not crazy at all. Cheese board was 2 die 4. Brussel sprouts, ahi tartare, and mashed potatoes were amazing.

This restaurant is the old Sky Bar. It is still super beautiful with a magnificent view of the city. It is over priced, but that being said it is a very special place. I would go again for a special occasion or romantic date.

There was construction by the pool next door with a lot of noise. We also ordered a plain bagel and were brought a different one because they didn't have plain bagels, but they never told us. Besides that, the food was very good.

Even though Ivory on Sunset is inside the Mondrain Hotel, it doesn't seem like a hotel restaurant which for me typically isn't special. Ivory on Sunset is special! The food is delicious, service fantastic and the view of LA is stunning. I highly recommend eating at Ivory on Sunset - a very special place.

Thumping Euro/Disco music at outdoor tables creates boring and unappetizing ambiance. Lots of hip and contemporary music could be played and more conducive to digestion.

Indoor tables with nice view by window. Unfortunately incredibly loud bachelorette party adjacent to us — actually two different ones side by side — made our experience uncomfortable.

Highlight was our waiter Derek: knowledgeable about wine and the menu, terrific suggestions, very professional. He deserves a better restaurant!

Not only is it a beautiful space with lovely scenery, but the staff there was so friendly! I've never had a hostess be so sweet and accommodating. The food and drinks were great, a little pricey but not nearly as overpriced as similar places. I would definitely go back.

I came here for my birthday lunch with some friends and had made the request to be seated next to the windows outdoor and they said they would be able to accommodate. When I arrived, they informed us they cannot sit my party near the windows outside but they can inside. When we were seated at the table next to the window, it was so hot I was sweating and uncomfortable. We asked if they can turn the air higher but they said the hotel controls it and there was nothing they would do.

We ended up having to move to a different table in the middle of the restaurant indoor and it still was somewhat hot, as the doors were kept open.

The service was horrible. We had to request things more than once and it seemed as though our waiter was nowhere to be found ever. When we would ask other waiters for something, instead of serving us, they would say hold on and would try to grab our waiter, and so we would have to wait even longer.

The food was decent. However, the selection was very little.

Would possibly come back for dinner when its not scorching hot. However, will not come back for lunch or brunch.

We didn't realize that the restaurant was in a hotel with a Vegas style pool party. We could hear the techno rocking outside but because the restaurants stereo was connected they could not onay any music. The decor was very trendy and great. The food was good but extremely over priced. All and all I would not go back. Glad I went once but won't go back again.

I absolutely loved the decor and the flatware/plates. The bacon is absolutely on point! The service wasn't the best and I didn't realize that Skybar club was just outside, so the bar was backed up. I chose this as my bridal shower venue, so I wouldn't recommend it while the club outside is going on. Otherwise, I had a great time with friends, and overall had a very special day!

The pictures of the restaurant look great and a place you want to go to but actually in person the place is pathetically run down and needs to remodeled. The food was surprisingly good and a descent value. The service at the table was slow and in consistant but the food made up for it. The 8oz Bone-in New York Strip was amazing as was the shrimp cocktail.

After the closing of my favorite date night spot, Nic's Beverly Hills, my guy & I have been looking for a new date night restaurant. I think we may have found it! The hostess was absolutely delightful. We enjoyed a drink at the bar while we waited to be seated. The food and service was amazing . I can't wait to go back.

This was my second time going to the Ivory on Sunset and I absolutely love this Restaurant!! I went last year to celebrate my birthday and again this year 3 weeks early. The service is so friendly and the ambiance is perfect! The outdoor patio feels like I am in paradise and the views are amazing! I only gave 3 stars for the food this time because the fish I ordered was over cooked and everything else had too much salt, however my friends and I still enjoyed the experience and will return☺

This was my second time at the Ivory on Sunset and once again was amazing! To begin with, the restaurant itself is beautiful with skyline views of Los Angeles and bright decor. The staff and service they provide is incomparable to any other restaurant I've been to in West Hollywood. Everyone is incredibly friendly and truly wants to give you the best experience at their restaurant. The food is delicious; their cheese platter, ahi tartare, and grilled octopus is a must. Both times I dined here the food was perfect. A beautiful place to enjoy a one of a kind experience with good company!
