This place is amazing! My girlfriend and I went on a Saturday night. The service was outstanding (thanks Lauren!!!) and the food was simply AMAZING! This is close to home, so it's definitely going to be one of our new spots. Great food served by fabulous people!!

Very good brunch. Food was outstanding.
Portions were just right.
Value was fine.
French press coffee was a little over the top for a brunch. Served and gone before the food came. Would rather just have a server come around with a pot and top it off. I know you are trying to go upscale, but this is still Westwood.
Patio is nice enough.
Very enjoyable, all in all.

This place is by far, the best restaurant and steakhouse west of downtown. It is a bit pricey as all these place are. However the food is delicious. Our steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly. My fiancee loved the mashed potatoes... she has a thing for mashed potatos... don't ask me lol. The staff was awesome. Very attentive but not over bearing and annoying. Really reasonable and good wines. I thought parking might be an issue just because of the location, but they have their own parking lot behind the building with plenty of spots.
If you are looking for a super fancy meal and don't feel like leaving the Westside. Definitely check this place out.

We have been there now 4 or 5 times since they have opened ,we have never been disappointed. The food and service is outstanding! I want to thank the chef for having a “vegan chefs choice” now on the menu each time, it has always been absolutely wonderful ! Each time we have been there we have seen the owners , a special thank you to them for opening such a delightful restaurant in our neighborhood.

Our server Jennifer was amazing! She assisted us with ordering after she explained the menu. When we mentioned that the check was a little pricey for lunch, she told us about the weekly specials. Overall, it was a nice experience.

First time at Ivory House, decided to try it for a birthday dinner with total of 6 people after they released their Fall menu which seemed very expanded compared to previous menu I saw. Excellent service, piano was a great addition but could be a little quieter as it was hard to hear at our table at times but we were one of the closer tables to the piano.
Steak, Salmon and Chicken were ordered for entrees. Salmon and chicken were the favorites. Everyone wished there was an option to choose a side but that wasn’t an option per the menu. The waitress did change for 2 people when requested. Appetizers were great. Very high quality, smaller portions but all in all everyone said they would return!!

We ordered the smash burger special and it was $16 and all we drank was water! Then we asked to see the dessert menu and the apple pie was $14! Too pricey for lunch - this didn’t even include tax and tip! Maybe you could offer mini desserts at a lower cost! We ate outside and it was nice !

Wonderful evening outside. We all had delicious meals—salmon, braised beef agnolotti, Wagyu burger, and the seafood special (and maybe two desserts😊). Great service, excellent wine, and adherence to social distancing. I can’t recommend this fabulous place enough. Grateful to be within walking distance!

We came for my husband’s birthday and had a nice time. It was a new experience for both of us. The mashed potatoes were a bit salty to me, but the steak and asparagus were on point. I would not recommend the GF bread as was similar to overdone toast and had no flavor. The atmosphere and drinks were wonderful.

It was very nice - A big surprise how upscale the restaurant was considering the location. There's not too many nice restaurants on the Westside of town. The food was delicious and the wine list was very good.

We brought our 13 year old daughter here for a fancy dinner without her younger siblings. It was lovely!! We are so happy to have a fine dining choice just a couple streets away from us. The menu was very fun and fancy, but I think my only complaint would be that it needed perhaps one choice that was a little less "experimental", (for those, like my husband, who have a more "bland" palette) ;-) The service was wonderful, the ambiance was perfect, and this might be random, but their coffee was incredible!!! We look forward to going back soon!

We enjoyed being in the private area since we had some many people and so many diff conversations going on. It would have been super noisy in the regular area for sure. Thank you for good service and a nice venue for the westside to enjoy. We are born and raised westsiders and love to be close to home for some fabulous food and drink.

I really enjoyed our meal at Ivory House. The food and drinks were very good, I just wish they would have had a main entree geared toward vegetarians. Of the 6 entrees they had, 4 had beef, 1 had poultry and the other had like 4 different kinds of seafood. Dessert was top-notch!
