I have been to Ivy a few times before for date night and recommended it for our reward lunch at work. Everyone at the table were very impressed by the options and the quality of the lunch. People commented on how beautiful the restaurant was and how wonderful the service was. Two guests got the lamb chops and said they were mouth watering. Two of the guests got the parmesan incrusted salmon and loved the mixture of crunchy topping and buttery salmon. I got the crabmeat incrusted tilapia, the fish was melt in your mouth good, and the crabmeat was fresh and the perfect complement to the tilapia. Thank you so much for making this lunch so special for everyone who attended. I am sure we will be back! I know my teammates plan on coming with their significant others for dates as well.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner from the appetizer thru the dessert. We had a great table by the fireplace and our server was kind enough to give us plenty of time. Highly recommend for any occasion. We keep coming back.

Creative venue. Yes the date was a Saturday evening in December, BUT with a reservation, seating was late, had to wait. VERY noisy. Inattentive service. Menu looks inventive but delivery was not. Lots of sizzle but average delivery. Very expensive but poor value. Go once for the experience but do not go twice. Save you money for another venue.

Service not as attentive this visit. Waited a long time for bread, water refills since they didn’t leave a bottle on our table like everyone else. Mark- up on wine is crazy. Waited a long time to pay our bill. Will be a while before we return. Crystal was our server.

We hadn't been to the Ivy in a while because it is a little pricey (for us anyway). It's great for a special occasion. Excellent food and good service with good standard menu choices and specials. We enjoyed our meal.

Ivy was fabulous! It has become my 'go-to" restaurant after just one visit. The food is scrumptious and very reasonably priced and the portions were plentiful. Wine pairing suggestion was spot on and the desserts couldn't possibly have been better. Bravo, Ivy!

The place was decorated very nicely for Christmas. We ate in the bar area. The place was packed and the football games were going on. The fish was fresh and properly prepared. The fingerling potatoes were very good and the other veggies were tasty. Sometimes they use a little to much oil on the veggies so tell them when ordering to go light. The wine was fine although rather expensive. It is a great place to eat and meet friends.

Outstanding food, creative and full of flavor. We had the beet salad which was delicious. We also had the tilapia and the salmon dishes. They were amazing. Great sauces and the vegetables and potatoes that came with it had just the right flavor to go with the fish. The service was also great. The waiter was attentive, but didn't make us feel rushed. He was very nice and really made our time there wonderful.

We dined here for a pre-theater dinner. Our server, Michael D., was attentive without hovering. He was knowledgeable about the menu. The sea bass was delicious, very moist, and the cod was well received. The one down side was the noise level, which cannot be controlled by Ivy. The ambience is great. We will definitely return.

Service was terrific, our server was knowledgeable, professional and attentive. The butternut squash ravioli was full of flavor, a hint of sweetness but not overpowering. The gorgonzola cheese and parmesan cream sauce was smooth and creamy. Loved the Creme De Cocoa dessert. Great chocolaty mousse served in a small cup, was just enough to end the meal.

This is a fun place to eat. The specials are always interesting. We both had different fish which were prepared perfectly. The fingerling potato's were superb. The green beans were good but a little oily. The beers and wines were good and the price was par for the area. Their beer on tap was good and cold. You can sit in the bar and watch TV and people or sit in the great dining room and enjoy the beautiful holiday decorations.

I’ve had lunch at Ivy as well as dinner now twice. We frequent the restaurants in Wheaton and like the atmosphere of Ivy especially their outdoor seating in the summer. My only complaint is the food being served Luke warm instead of hot. I thought it was a fluke the first time, but our dinner came out warm again the second time. Both times we ordered steak and both times our steaks were not hot. I will not order a steak there again.

The food and atmosphere at Ivy are tops in Wheaton! The lollipop lamb chops are delicious...my hubby always orders them when we go! Owners are reliably friendly and stop by tables to check on things! This past weekend we brought friemds from Detroit and they loved it too! We were all happy to participate in the fundraiser for Napa firefighters at Ivy! We love Napa so we were happy to support this cause! Thanks Ivy!

And made herself available at a comfortable distance.
