Other than the burnt out lightbulb right above our table, the atmosphere was very intimate.

Service and ambiance was great. A bit price and portions are rediculous. I got the chicken surpreme ($26) and there was nothing supreme about it only two bite sized pieces of dry flavourless chicken.

My date however got the burger ($17) and enjoyed it.

Me & my family have been to Ivy several times for brunch but not recently. Had to book online- almost impossible to talk to anyone to secure the reservation and/or to try to add one person (my mother/my children's grandmother). I finally got through the day before & was told they could not allow 8 people & one high chair because the table couldn't accommodate & when we arrived there was an extra chair but it was too late to travel to get my elderly mother. Also - had no idea the price was $45 per person. Couldn't find online and certainly the price has gone way up. But the biggest disappointment was the change in menu and quality of food. No crab legs or scallops as before & the oysters were terrible, only 2 salads but lots of breakfast food. Not a menu or quality of food that would have me come back or ever recommend to anyone. A real shock

What a great find. The food was incredible. The wine was excellent and the service was top notch. Although it was a very quiet Wednesdsy night, Ivy Bar is inviting and will get me back again.

The live soloist was so loud, we couldn't have a conversation at our table. The food was tasty and well presented but was lukewarm and served on cold plates. There were only 10 diners during our visit but the service was disappointingly slow albeit entertaining when he did show up. The best meal was the vegan cauliflower steak which was delicious and quite hot. Lastly, the cavernous room was so cold, we had our coats over shoulders or laps. Not planning to return.

The on-line reservation process offers the opportunity to make special requests. I requested an area that would be quiet and comfortable for three seniors. The restaurant was probably less than one third full when we arrived. We were directed to seating alongside a large family with small children.

Service was excellent and our waiter was friendly and attentive and the food was great. I expected the appetizers to be small but there weren't. There were 3 of us for dinner and everything we ordered was outstanding. I am recommending the Ivy Bar to all our friends. Our guest from Toronto said he would make the trip again to this restaurant.

After looking at a couple places, seen some reviews and decided to book at Ivy Bar for a Birthday Brunch - now will recommend to everyone for any occasion or just for an amazing brunch experience.
Food selection and spread offered many breakfast to lunch options for everyone's taste - eggs done every way, toppings for waffles to pancakes, roast beef and fresh seafood to choose from.
Service was amazing, quick drinks and coffee refills to no end - everyone was friendly and personable.
All that attended comment on the experience, amazing music and ambiance, and would have to come back soon

The food was just enough. A huge variety even made to order items. Enjoyed the shrimp, crab legs, mini chocolat croissants, and banana bread french toast. Great service. The bartender played a joke with my mom who ordered a mimosa for $5 and brought it in a shot glass. She loved it, and laughed saying this is what it would beblike to be on candid camera. Very attentive staff but not overbaring.

Great concept for brunch but very few people and food was not fresh. Very nice patio.

Greeted well, only ones in the restaurant that night, except for a small business meeting. Exceptional service, amazing "small plates"--OMG 'Marc's Mushrooms'!!--and overall great ambiance. Dessert, however, was lacking greatly. Coffee was so-so. Came cold and muddy the first time but our awesome server got me another, better, one.

I sure won't rush back for dessert (my friend had the donuts and I had what was supposed to be toffee carrot--it was a simple carrot cake that anyone could make). However, I'm looking forward to seeing how staff manage when it's really busy, and to try some larger entrees!
