Shaved Prime Rib sandwich is to die for! I love prime rib and don't normally eat on bread as it tends to be hard to eat but this was perfect. The bread was fresh and soft and the meat was very tender. Had the salad with it and that was a great compliment if your looking for something other than French fries (of which they have as well). Ivy never fails.....I always find something great on the menu even tried things I don't usually have and STILL FANTASTIC! Ivy is a must!!!!

My husband and I had a great time. The food was good. The service was alright. Somehow our ticket was "dropped" so we waited for our salads. Our server apologized profusely. The fireplace was beautiful and the outdoor seating looked nice, too bad the weather was horrible. It was an overall nice night. We plan on coming back.

3 of 4 meals were extremely good. The chicken meal that my mom got was very dry and over cooked. It was a bummer that she didn’t really enjoy her dinner when everyone else did.

Unfortunate menu choice? Fish was not fully de-boned and the skin was left on (purposely?). Great aide salad and sorbet/ice cream. Choose a different entree.

We visited Ivy with another couple. It was a first visit for all of us.

Quaint and charming. Staff very polite, professional and accommodating.

Food was delicious. Each of us had different entrees. I had the Tournedos of Beef (excellent), husband had the Salmon (also excellent). Our friends were also delighted with their meals.

Michael our waiter knew his job and performed it expertly.

We definitely are going to visit again, but go when the weather allows us to sit and dine in their outdoor courtyard. It just looked so inviting from our vantage point.

Thank you Ivy for providing for a wonderful evening for my husband and I and our dear friends.

As always Ivy was a wonderful dining experience. The lamb chops were delicious; they have become a tradition for us. The service was attentive and sensitive to our needs. And of course the ambiance is charming. Highly recommend Ivy. We’ll be back.

We're regulars at Ivy, and it never disappoints. The rack of lamb is THE BEST! Also enjoyed the crab encrusted tilapia. Creamy $3 gelato is a perfect way to end the meal.

Food was excellent, great service, just the right amount of attention, didn't rush us. Beautiful and unique venue. While not Ivy's fault, there was quite a noisy table right next to ours that made it difficult to hear our own conversation at times - almost asked to be moved. I'm sure they would have accommodated us if we had requested it.

We enjoyed the mashed potatoes with green beans and salad. The main course was the excellent Walleye followed up by a small but tasty desert. The bar area has TV's and gets pretty lively after 6:30pm on a weekend. The place has valet parking and only the curb to step up if you have problems walking or are in a wheel chair. The inside of this place is so interesting and they always change things around seasonally to make it fun. Can't wait for the patio to reopen this spring.

Good food as always. Great venue, interesting building. Very friendly staff. Very good decent wine list. Have been here many times. This time the food was the star, tasty and good quality. The service left something to be desired today. I really dislike plates being cleared from some at the table when others are still eating, even when someone has on purpose left knives and forks crossed, not aligned to signal the dish having been finished off. Also getting asked if we want coffees or desserts while two people were still eating main course was very annoying. Otherwise ok.

One of our favorite restaurants. Very good food. We both had the beer can chicken which was the best we ever had. Our cocktails were made perfectly. The only problem was that our waiter was very busy and we had to wait in between servings. The waiter was very nice however. We would recommend this restaurant.
