My friends (three) who were with me we at Ivy Kitchen for the first time. On my recommendation, all of them ordered the traditional cheeseburger and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server was very sweet and efficient, and she made our experience very delightful. I will definitely be back; the others do not live in our neighborhood, so I can't vouch for them. But I know they had a great time.

Hostess rose and server Madeline are the main reasons for the rating. This is a nice neighborhood place that we would return if and when we were in the neighborhood. Steak was good, brussels sprouts too spicy, Trout slightly overcooked but asparagus on point. All in all, a pleasant evening.

Ivy Kitchen is my number 1 choice in restaurants to visit prior to seeing a movie at The Look. The staff is always very nice, the food amazing and well worth the price. It is something my son and I certainly look forward to on our movie date nights together and it is just a perfect start to a perfect evening with my son, whom I do not get to spend much time with. Thank you, Ivy Kitchen for always making it so special for us. My visits there are and always will be events I look back at with great fondness and will have a special place in my heart.

Brian (sp) is always very attentive and highly knowledgeable about the menu. His recommendation on a Girard Cab and the Smoked Bacon Jalapeno appetizer brought me back and they didn't disappoint, again. Lindsey(sp) was there during this visit and she was lively, fun, and engaging during her stints at our table. Both are bartenders and do a great job. This is a solid place that's nice and quiet around 3pm for discreet business conversations or a secluded date.

This was a Valentines Day dinner with my wife. I booked a week in advance and was seated promptly upon arrival, however I ask for a booth and was told none were available and no option to wait at the bar until one opened. Small menu, food was good. Place was pretty nosy for a romantic date.

Light crowd, so we were served by the bartender, who was great. Since it was Wednesday, wine bottles were half-price. Found a great wine that I hadn’t tried before, based on the bartender’s recommendation. I’ve since picked up two bottles from the local store. Food was great, including the brisket-stuffed, bacon-wrapped jalapeños (beware that the seeds are not removed from one end, which turns the heat up tremendously). Crab cake salad was excellent. Great meal overall.

We were a few minutes late but the two lovely hostesses didn’t even mind and sat us immediately after checking my seating preference twice. The waitress on the other hand was a nuisance and very sassy. I told her multiple times we were just going to hang out and enjoy our drinks and app(which the place was empty, we drink a lot so that’s $ for y’all, and our movie didn’t start until 2 hours from then.) She left and came back almost immediately asking us about dinner, several times, each time. Please, stop rushing us after I’ve told you and just leave us alone if you aren’t refilling our drinks?? The sweet tea we requested she brought unsweetened. The drinks, apps and dinner did not even look like something “Ivy Kitchen” would serve. Mediocre and cheap and More like something from a night club rather than something worth a $200 bill. Those microwaved jalapeño popper that tasted like last week??? Yuck. When she brought out our dinner, I asked for the additional side for mine (which I asked and would’ve gladly paid for) she immediately cut me off, “um no ma’am it only comes with 1 side.” And then walked away. Okay???? Can I not pay for the additional side??? Don’t speak to me that way acting all sassy because you want to go home? My husband and I love LOOK and we live so close but we will go else where to eat before hand.

Good food but service needs help. We ordered dinner salads along with our meals. The server brought out both of our meals and one salad, all together. She was not paying any attention to us or she would have noticed that we did not get our salads before dinner. She took the cost of ONE salad off the bill. Also, we had to ask for drink refills, and she would bring one and not ask the other person if they wanted a refill. Just not very professional at all. As I said the meal was tasty, but the Ceasar Salad had way too much dressing on it. Another think I did not care for is that they do not offer any dinner rolls or bread. We probably will not be back. There are too many good restaurants in this area that get it right.

Dinner and a movie is stepped up a notch with the proximity of Look Theater and Ivy Kitchen. Walk down the hall of the theater and step right into Ivy Kitchen and enjoy an upscale spin on classic American food. The pesto hummus appetizer is creamy and rich and served with a healthy serving of vegetables and pita bread but don’t leave without trying the Pimento Cheese Dip. Flatbreads are great for sharing and I love the Fig Prosciutto with Goat Cheese but the classics are on the menu too. The Grilled Scottish Salmon is simply prepared and perfectly cooked - moist and slightly pink. Side dishes of Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potato Fries and Macaroni and Cheese are hard to resist. Earlier in the week I went to Look and Dine with food provided by Ivy Kitchen and no other theater that serves food comes anywhere close to the quality provided here. I want to go back for the grilled chicken sandwich with pesto mayonnaise and arugula but I may need to try the fried chicken sandwich recommended by my waiter. Cocktails are excellent and wine list offers a great selection. Don’t just go to a movie - go to Look Theater and enjoy a great meal from Ivy Kitchen.

Service was poor. We were celebrating a special occasion, birthday, and following the main course meal, we were presented with the bill on the table. No question to ask if we were happy with the meal, or if anyone was interested in coffee and dessert. The restaurant was quiet, so there wasn't a line of people waiting.

Second, the fries were cold on one of the plates and the $30 steak fillet mignon was well done when asked for medium. I informed the waiter, he didn't seem to care. So I ended up eating a steak that tasted like cardboard.

Their appetizers are good and nice selections of wines. Overall, for the price and ambience, the service is poor and ultimately, they don't seem to care. Never will go back.
