The Ivory on Sunset is a perfect place to go to when you are impressing visitors from out of town. The view is spectacular, the appetizers great, and the entree delicious. The staff was very accommodating and the service was prompt.

I’ve been in the industry for a long time and dined at many nice places so trust me when I say that ivory on sunset is worth the hype! The hostess were very accommodating and truly cared about me and my gf getting the best possible seat. The noise from sky bar was very loud and made us go inside but other than that everything was perfect. The NY steak is one of the best of had and ismael was a true professional. What a great server. We’ll be coming back

Lisa Marie is an outstanding waitress. Her easy going nature and knowledge of the menu made New Years dinner a very memorable occasion. The service is spot on from the entire wait staff. The view is spectacular overlooking downtown LA. All of the courses were creative and excellent tasting. Bravo!!

We enjoyed our meals at the ivory on Xmas day, though our entrees were brilliant and the next two courses looked slapped together.

Visiting from Australia for Christmas Day we did a lot of research to find a nice venue. Came across Ivory on sunset which looked the part for a good atmosphere which it delivered. The service was engaging and friendly. The food was 3 course pre fix menu for Xmas and everything tasted delicious. Originally we wanted to find a champagne inclusive meal for Xmas but decided to pay for alcohol instead to still dine at Ivory. Maybe only suggestion for next year would be a drink package option.

Thanks for making our special evening lovely!

I reserved our table for six people months prior To staying at the hotel for 5 nights, as guests of the hotel I didn’t want to take a chance on not having a nice table during our stay on my sons birthday. On arrival to the hotel I also checked our dinner reservation with the restaurant and they told me that they had my booking and request and that they were trying very hard to make sure we had a table inside, near the view. Come to the evening of the reservation we were seated on a table outside In the middle of a large area on a cold, cold, night and nowhere near a view. When I spoke up, I was told they get 200 requests for a window and can’t accommodate every request or possibly get back to everyone. It was such a rude response I felt like leaving. This was an important night for us that I’d planned for ages. And I am not much of a planner! Anyway, we all ate some pasta, had two desserts and one glass of wine Between us. The bill came to AUS$1,016.00 - the most expensive meal we’ve ever had amongst screaming noisy guests, cold hands and feet and just upset we were treated like that. I wish I had not stayed here or booked the restaurant. Had they bothered to let me know that there was going to be 20 Christmas parties here that night and I definitely wasn’t getting a table inside with a view (they already knew this) I could have had the opportunity to book another restaurant we would have enjoyed our special night nice and warm and be able to hear each other speak. They had ample opportunities to tell me that. Seriously not impressed. The sense of entitlement. Too much.

It was our first time at the Ivory and we had a blast. Post Malone was at the bar and he joined our table of seven women. We had a fantastic time. The food was great and so were the drinks. I recommend the Sex on The Beach cocktail, very tasty. The only thing that bothered us was that the waitress kept bringing us the bill even though we were not ready to leave. But then again, we were a loud table and livened up the place.

The space is great with a view of the city and big glass windows. It was very cold thanksgiving night, even though we were by a heater. The food was tasty. The parking is $12 for 2 hours and then it is more every 10 minutes. That is not much time. I wish we had parked on the street.

We went to Ivory on Sunset and had an incredible experience. It was a quiet, romantic atmosphere. They placed us next to the window with heaters which was very nice. Our waiter was exceptional, both friendly and genuine. You can tell the menu is very well put together with mouth watering dishes. It was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed so warmly. Our waiter went above and beyond even adjusting our table when we got too hot from the sun. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. The food was delicious and the place is beautiful. We had a table by the window and sat outside. This restaurant is decorated amazingly. This was the perfect way to start our day and thank you so much to our waiter and the rest of the staff who showed such fantastic hospitality. Very friendly and made the whole experience even better than we could have imagined it would be.

I made this reservation 4 days in advance and specifically asked for a table with a view since it was for a birthday. Arrived on time 7:30pm then was told you must wait until a table was ready. 20 mins later then was told that nothing was available with a table that had a view. Then told to wait an additional 30mins for a table with a view to pop up. Then 10 mins later was told that it might take even longer, 45-60mins for a table with a view to become available. Staff at front desk were snarky and rude, did not even look you in the eye when speaking. Did not pay any attention to my requests and made it seem like they were insanely busy but they were not. Later sat at a table with benches that were very uncomfortable, no view, nothing special was done for the birthday gathering. Food and server were great. Drinks were insanely bitter.

The managers we're extremely disrespectful to my friends and I. We came for a birthday celebration and our server was amazing, but the managers we're just awful and mean. We've all worked in the food industry, so we know exactly what it means to be respectful to guests. They had extremely rude attitudes and we spent a lot of money to be there. I've never felt so uncomfortable by MANAGERS constantly throughout my entire visit somewhere. Someone needs to replace the Ivory's upper management because that is not how you treat guests.

The employees were amazing! We had one guest that kept bothering my girlfriend and I, the employees kindly asked him to leave us alone and made sure he didn’t bother us anymore. The food was delicious. The service was top notch! I will definitely be back!

Nowhere did it say nor was I informed that my whole party had to be there to be seated. I initially wanted a centric view of the sunset for my birthday but gave us the most off putting wall that showed little to no view. I couldn’t tell if that was because we changed the number of guests, but seemed petty. I looked around and there were better tables with a view just empty the whole time we were there. Waiter didn’t come back to ask my last two guest what they were gonna eat. The light bulb above us table was twitching. Didn’t acknowledge my bday occasion at all the way other restaurants would. Food could have been better seasoned or something, very bland. I would go back but maybe to sky bar instead.
