We love Ivy, and have been there many times, and for special occasions. We went to celebrate Valentine's, and thru Open Table I had asked for a seat by fireplace. Unfortunately, we were placed in the back room off the patio by fireplaces in that room. Not my favorite area in the restaurant, which is really beautiful. Its usually cold in there which it was, and not as pretty as the main room. Our waiter was wonderful and that made up for it. I was a little disappointed by a few other unexpected things I hadn't experienced dining there previously. Our little centerpiece was on the window sill next to our table, but not on it like the other tables in this room. There was not much on the menu I could pick from being it a lent Friday, and I'm not suppose to eat meat. There were fish entrees, but nothing I cared for and most too spicy for me. I was going to have macaroni, but that had ingredients in it I couldn't eat. So I ended up with fillet and shrimp which I asked be done medium. It was way undercooked and both the shrimp and fillet only lukewarm. I had to send it back, and the fillet came back better, but the shrimp was still luke warm with a sauce now poured on it, lol. Don't get me wrong it was still good, but I prefer my hot food cooked, and hot. Dessert and coffee were great. The owner is wonderful, and was in the back room, but didn't do his usual stop at our table, which was also a bit disappointing but I realize it was weekend after Valentine's Day so he was busy. Anyway, all is good, we will return I was just surprised not the usual excellence overall.

Good food and service. Beautiful building. The salmon was very good. And the potatoes are amazing. Also enjoyed the Caesar salad.
Very good service, as well.

Went for valentine’s day:

We had a 7:30 reservation and arrived at 7:15. The staff let us sit at the bar until i approached them.

- Bar drink are fair ... not so good
- food is fair
- service poor
- loud
- over priced

I suggest avoiding this place, i will never go back.

We have eaten here before and generally enjoy it, but the food was off this time. We both ordered steaks, and they were sub-par. The brie appetizer was good, and the turtle brownie was phenomenal. Our server was great.
