Sat inside today as the weather was a bit cold. The cover is finally off outside to enjoy the LA sun! The chef was able to accommodate my allergies which is not always possible in some restaurants. The view was impeccable and the chef even came out to make sure everything went well! Had a friend in town from Florida and she really enjoyed the menu. Wide selection and great cocktails to compliment! Plus bottomless mimosas for brunch!

We went here for an anniversary dinner on a Monday night but it was nowhere near what's considered busy on a Monday evening. We got there and got sat and greeted by our server who later said the kitchen would be closing ASAP so he would like to take our order but this was at 9:15 and I read the restaurant closed at 10 pm. It didn't seem like the full attention was there just because it wasn't a busy night so people weren't really on their A-game. May be back for brunch not sure about dinner the food wasn't crazy good.

So shame! To begin with i reserved for two and I requested outside seating and they couldn’t accommodate even through there was plenty of open spots. So we were seated in side which was fine to us, me and my friend celebrating her birthday. The funny part is after we were seated we waited 30 minutes plus more no one bother to come and asked if we have been helped. OMG, I see plenty of servers going back and forth helping other tables but not us. After waiting so long a server that was helping another table came helped us and we clearly told her what happened and No body bothers to say sorry or anything. I normally don’t write a review! We were not pleased :(

It is a horrible place! Don’t go there!
The staffs were super rude!!! They ignored my reservation and said it is first come first serve!!! The bagel they brought for me was about to break my tooth since it was as hard as rocks! I asked them to change it, they took my self prepared salmon avocado cheese bagel and got back to me with just a bagel and had me transfer everything to the other one!!!! It was terrible

I went here as part of my 21st birthday weekend celebration. The service was outstanding from Beatrice! I was running late and she was able to hold the table for us! So I thank her so much for that. Secondly, our waiter, Ismael, was very knowledgeable. Of course we got the unlimited mimosas, but he also suggested multiple lunch items that sounded good, including drinks. We ended up getting whatever he suggested!

The view and ambience was nice. Now we did feel out of place considering everyone there was older and we are kids compared to them. But overall would definitely go back for the amazing service!

All the changes you have made are awful! So disappointed! Service was none existent until I flagged someone down & then he stepped in & was good.
Food just ok. Smells of chlorine since you are in a terrarium!!😳

Polite cheerful server, modern refreshing decor, choice of inside or al fresco. Food was a great interpretation of Italian cooking; house-made pasta was tasty but maybe a little too “dente”. Chicken Parmesan was not al forno, was a spicier “schnitzel”, also tasty. Parking by valet is a disaster owing to the hotel layout (and with validation is the cost of a lunch entree). Food service was prompt, but getting the bill after we asked was much delayed. It was not our neighborhood, but was all in all a fine choice for “dining on Sunset”.

Beatrice makes this place for us, I love her! We specifically choose this place for brunch as often as we do because she is amazing and sweet. We love seeing her and being able to say hi! The food is great as well and the views gorgeous. The service itself isn't up to par aside from Beatrice.

Well, the server was very nice and offered suggestions and honesty, but never got back to us to check on how our apps and entrees tasted until late in the game. The salad came out with the oysters and tartar. The food runner delivered our ceasar and we asked for some fresh ground pepper and he pointed to the pepper on the table. 1/2 dozen oysters cost $25. Maybe some oyster forks with that price?

We were super excited to try out this spot - the pictures looked beautiful, the menu sounded delightful.

We were very disappointed. They put us at a table in a corner which felt like storage - even though there were plenty of other tables to be had.

We were greeted by a very enthusiastic server - so our hopes were high. However, after our initial drink and food order was taken. That server was nowhere to be found. No one ever came to refill our water glasses, or check I’m on how everything was. The server eventually reappeared and asked if we wanted another round of drinks - My husband ordered a second wine. We never received his wine.

The server appeared one more time to offer dessert - apparently completely forgetting the aforementioned wine. At this point we really didn’t want to stay much longer so we asked for two espressos and the bill.

The espressos arrived with a different server who was apparently ‘brand new’ and didn’t know to bring us any sugar options, so he just brought over two splendas...um.

We sipped our espressos, still waiting for the check. After what seemed an eternity, we managed to get the attention of a manager who brought over the bill for us.

Needless to say...we may not go there again. The food was just ok. Nothing to dream about.

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!!
