Service is still terrible. The bartender Tony wasn’t helpful and never followed up. And the food was horrible. The filet mignon was disgusting. I couldn’t eat it this time. Not going back ever. The only thing that was good is the Santa Fe egg roll and the mango up drink.

The food is much better since new mgmt took over and renamed the place. Service can be spotty. Very nice outdoor patio and dog friendly

We have been regulars for YEARS. Since the Change in management we have stayed loyal but it is getting tougher and tougher.

The food has changed, regular staff that knew us is gone, and the transition in menu is stark.

I will give it one more shot but.... not optimistic.

Outstanding service. Very welcoming staff. Beautiful patio. Because it was a cool evening we sat inside and staff started up the fireplace for us. Very cosy! Large parking lot.
Food was delicious from the hummus and calamari appetizers which were very cheap during happy hour, to the amazing short rib pot pie. The Mangos Up and Pink Paloma drinks were also wonderful. We will definitely go back.

Ivanhoe's great, been there plenty of times. Unfortunately was there on a night where there was a large party with tons of obnoxious unruly children. But servers were A+, we felt very badly for them. They apologized for mayhem several times.

Everything seemed well to start. We chose to sit inside because it was a little chilly. Inside is kind of depressing though. And the windowsill and blinds were really dusty...
Once order was placed we got things fairly quickly but it took another 10-15 for my salad to come out last after everything else. And it was called heirloom tomato and watermelon, the tomatoes were not heirloom. Nachos were nachos that anyone would/could make at home.

Probably the worst service I’ve had at a restaurant to date.

Incomplete orders, severe food delays, absentee/poor servers, an uninterested manager… it was a comedy of errors.

My favorite part was when our waitress tried to convince me that there were golden beets in my beet and avocado salad when there were NONE. After telling me the beets were very finely chopped (which no one at our table bought), she returned from the kitchen with red beets, not golden beets. 🤷This one salad was already delayed 20 minutes after 4 other guests received their meals.

PS this is just scratching the surface of the issues we experienced. Ivanhoe has horrible service and overpriced/average food. We will not be returning. But at least I got my OpenTable points...

My 3rd time coming to Ivanhoe and I gotta say, it’s one of my favorite places for HH and brunch now. Everyone who I’d taken here to were all very impressed with the ambiance and food! The HH is amazing here... SO delicious. We tried the shrimp cocktail, cheeseburger sliders, loaded fries, tacos and white wine Sangria. The manager and servers were very attentive and super friendly. We never felt rushed. Can’t wait to try other items on their menu. Parking was a breeze.

Nothing terribly wrong, but nothing especially worth making it a destination. On a Thursday night, it didn’t seem like anyone was in charge — the well-intentioned staff were individually doing their thing running the place. Has the feeling of an absentee owner/investor who is not a restaurateur.

Living in LA for 3 years. Worst meal I've had. Came in a group of 5, all got different things. No one liked their food. Hamburger bun so dry it crumbled and fell apart. Literally. Vegan burger patty weird tasting. Gluten free items not clearly marked. Pomodoro like deli meat. Friend asked for no tomato. Got tomato. Friend asked for ranch. Got ketchup. tuna salad so sauced up you couldn't taste the actual tuna. Tough dry sliced bread.

Also they force you to park in the lot. Told me I can't turn around and had to valet park. Don't currently have a help account but I might make one just to post my experience

Ivanhoe is a very pleasant experience: handsome, old structure with a very cool bar area, large dining room and comfortable seating in an enclosed patio as well. The menu is mainly American and pretty varied. The cuisine may not be all that adventurous or gastronomically amazing, but it is well prepared and reliable. Service is great.
