3 gals met there for a dinner get together and sat outside in the lovely patio setting. It was a perfect nite with delicious food, wine, and temperature. A lovely place, great food and excellent service. We were not pushed out, but our waiter handled us with great consideration, the right attention, and friendliness. We had a terrific evening there!

Overall a very positive evening for our anniversary evening out. Atmosphere & service were excellent. The side salad and house bread were excellent. The entrees were good. The crab cakes had a strong crab flavor which made us question the freshness. The Jambalaya was good, but did not compare with most Cajun restaurants that we have experienced.

We went there for the first time for an anniversary. The ambience is great. Servers were very friendly. My meal (stuffed chicken) was absolutely wonderful - officially one of my favorite dishes in recent memory. Deserts were superb. My girlfriend had steak which was very dry (but she also ordered in well done ... so perhaps excusable) thus the 4 stars as opposed to 5.

Overall, a wonderful experience and great food and people.

It’s way to noisy in the main dining area. It’s difficult to carry on a conversation.

The server misunderstood my order and delivered a filet instead of filet medallions. I am also not sure if it was a server or kitchen error that another person in our party who ordered a steak medium well received it medium rare. I chose to accept my filet even when the server offered to correct the problem. We did however send the other steak back and it was returned cooked correctly. Regardless the food was tasty and well prepared.

We went to Ivy for Mother’s Day and one of our guests was my 90 years old Grandma. Although there was an elevator, it was a bit much

On Mother’s Day, my son & I were looking forward to a wonderful meal at Ivy because I had had a delightful lunch there 2 days earlier. But on Sunday, we were disappointed in the menu choices and the service. We were there at 1:30, so the restaurant had empty tables at that time. We asked for bread & were told no bread was being served that day. It was replaced with a bowl of cut up fruit. The menu was very limited. The waitress took our order, and then we never saw her again. We had to ask other waiters to clear our dirty plates and to bring the bill. All in all, not what we expected.

One of the owners was making sure to stop at each table, talking with diners casually, nice touch.

The indoor part of the restaurant has a musty old smell that was complicated by fishy food entrees. We moved outside to a beautiful patio. There was live entertainment, one man, occasionally a woman, singing so loud that they could be heard miles away. When asked to have the entertainment tone it down a little bit, the waitress responded in a condescending tone, this is an outside venue,I can move you inside if you want to. Inside? To the must and fish...nah, we chose to scream to hear one another. The food was excellent!

First time and we would go back. They sat us on time and our server, Faith, was excellent. The food was good, not great but we didn't order anything crazy expense. I had the beef tip macaroni and cheese and my wife ordered the scallions and pasta which was one of their specials. The ambience is cool, as the building is a converted church, and there is an outdoor patio.

One of the best restaurants in Chicago's western suburbs. Situated in an old church, the décor has been update handsomely. The owner mills around, chatting with guests. Good drink list and five local beers on tap. A varied menu: some won't look past the steaks, but other options are excellent. Good starters, really good entrees, and tasty desserts. In a pretty part of Wheaton, not far from the town square. Great value, if you are willing to make the drive.

Great place to eat and meet people. Easy front door valet parking. Wide doors if you are disabled or us a walker. The food is excellent and the wait staff is very accommodating. Their specials are always wonderful. My only wish is a moist chocolate cake for desert.

Our reservation was accommodated right away with a table near the fireplace. Our server and the food was excellent. Wine was decanted at the table in a very professional way. We were not in a hurry and our server took that into account by not rushing our meal, but checking on us in a pleasant manner. We would highly recommend IVY's.

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!!!!
