Ivanhoe Restaurant & Bar
Food was good, so was service. Host’s seemed unfriendly but would go back.
Server was very nice, but service was very slow, possibly due to slow bartender. "Seafood" pasta was just calamari, should have been called "Calamari pasta". Chicken parmesean was tasteless. Friend liked the fish tacos.
Picked Ivanhoe for a family gathering (with diners from 7 months to 95 years old) on a Saturday lunchtime. I had not been there since the ownership/name change. The service was outstanding, especially given the extra consideration we needed. The food is very, very good. I had the beet/pear salad with chicken. Highly recommended. Everyone was very happy with their meal.
Great experience. No complaints at all. From the service to the ambiance to the delicious food, it was a great date night for myself and my husband. We had reservations and they seated us outside in a nice comfy booth which was great.
Definitely a step up from Home - the restaurant it replaced. But just a step, not a jump to the next floor. The food was decent, especially the chicken and waffles. Overall a solid 3.5 stars but closer to a 4.0 because of the exceptional service.
My first time here. Surprised by the size of big the dining room and patio and bar.
Grilled salmon very good. Looking forward to coming back for happy hour.
Service was quick. Food, delicious. The only thing is... I wish they could extend happy hour to 7:30pm or 8pm. We came from mid-Wilshire and my other friend came from OC. We got there mins before HH ended. Other than that, was a great time.
Love this place!
Ivanhoe is a rather new restaurant and still ironing out some of the kinks. The food coming out was extremely slow, but the manager came to the table and apologized; gave us a couple free deserts. The food was worth the wait! Calamari, sea bass and chicken Parmesan were excellent! I would definitely recommend!!
Everything was just great.
Food was good and service not great. But, for our group to catch up and be comfortable it served its purpose. I would not rush back though.
I appreciated that they accommodated us with a High chair considering we were a large party.
10/10! Everything was great!
Great meal, though there may be a glitch between Open Table and their reservation system. We indicated we wanted outside dining and it showed up in their reservation system as the Hight Table option.
Service was good and friendly, just a liitle slow. Had to wait for plates for our appetizers, also for ice and cocktails. It was happy hour and the bar was a bit backed up. They did apologize however for the inconvenience.
Sitting high top bar, service was very slow, not much attention to customers and it wasn’t busy.
The food was delicious and the service was great. Already recommended it to friends and will definitely come back again.
Loved the food, the wait staff was on top of their game and the nose level was fine. It was so relaxing being in a wonderful atmosphere. 👍🏻👍🏻
Seriously love this place! Alexandra is amaaaazing too. Everything we've ever had (food and drinks) is delicious!
I love the food here. Everyone is always pleasant and attentive. Been coming here for a long time.
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.
Great food just a some what slow bringing it to you. Don’t be in a time crunch that’s all I m saying
This spot is great for a birthday celebration. Came with my family here and had a great time. Food is not only presented enthusiastically but is as delicious as it looks. Service was great.
Was not served for 30 minutes after being seated. I had to go up and tell the host to bring us a waiter. Got our drinks after our food.
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.
We had a terrific Father's Day Brunch, sitting outside in a booth -- a lovely occasion all around.
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.
This was the 5th or 6 time I’ve here. I can’t go back anymore due to the same horrible customer service.
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...
Ivanhoe is always reliable with good food, great service, and a nice atmosphere. It is our go-to place.
Such a gem!
We enjoyed going to eat here, food and service always excellent!
The manager and staff at Ivanhoe made our anniversary extra special. We loved the cozy ambience and the quiet low-key music. The drinks and food were delicious! Thank you!
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.
Went for Mother's Day. Food was great and good selection on menu.
Prompt and attentive when my party arrived early for reservation. Thank you.
I really enjoy eating at Ivanhoe. I really like the ambiance and the food is always great! We enjoyed a casual and fun Mother's Day Brunch and everyone in our party loved their food.
