    Our first visit to Ivy & Varley after attending a Utah Symphony performance was excellent. All of the servers were very attentive, and the ambience was beautiful. The food was excellent and I am looking forward to exploring their cocktail menu a bit more. Will definitely be coming back!

    Menu was nicely varied with healthful vegetarian dishes alongside your meats and fish. The food came quickly and was very tasty - nicely spiced and flavored. The fish special had a delicious ginger/squash sauce. The vegan kimchi cauliflower dish was very tasty but could have used more kimchi. The wine list was also varied and affordable.

    The food and the venue were superb! However, despite having made reservations, it took 20 minutes for someone to introduce themselves as our waitress sand take our order and offer water. Another 30 minutes to bring out the food. This caused us to be 20 minutes late to an expensive theatrical performance. I regret tipping 20%.

    The staff was very nice and the ambiance was clean and modern. Lucy, our waitress, was attentive and kind. We all loved the brussel sprout appetizer, especially the horseradish sauce. My trout was stellar and the rest of the party all enjoyed their respective meals. Will be back next time I visit SLC!

    we came for new years and had the WORST SERVICE EVER. i’ve been here so many times and i’ve enjoyed it so much. so i decided to book for new years. the food was amazing as always but i’ve never had such terrible service. our waiter went to every table around us more than once before even coming back to ours. we waited 20-30 between EACH time they came to check on us. not to mention, i went to the bathroom and came back to my food taken away and i had literally just started eating. i also paid FULL PRICE for a drink that was only half served? it was supposed to come with a shot glass of champagne on the side and i paid over $15 for a drink that i didn’t even get the full serving. this used to be one of my favorite places in downtown but i don’t think i’ll be coming back. i spent over $80 on just MY meal and had the worst service i’ve probably ever had.

    We’ve been a few times over the past year and a half and the food quality has gone down SIGNIFICANTLY. I would not bother going until they shake up their food quality and atmosphere.

    I loved everything about it. All went perfect for my Christmas dinner with my parents. The one thing still bothering me though is that I had purchased a gift card on Black Friday sale which was supposed to give me an extra $10 and two tickets to a concert of my choice, however I have not seen anyway to redeem the offer and nobody was able to help me in that respect saying I should receive an email...

    The appetizer (Brussels sprouts) was really good. I ordered the salmon and it was the most bland salmon I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The salad was just a big chunk of lettuce that. Pretty disappointed overall. The atmosphere is great, food not so much.

    Our dinner was fantastic. We started with a beet and quinoa salad followed by a bison New York strip steak. We ordered the steak, medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. The steak was served with grits that we think had cheese infused. In addition, our dinner was accompanied by collard greens to give it a southern flair. We also had a bottle of Belkin Bambino Zinfandel, and it was delicious. The only minor drawback is that following dinner, we were hoping to have an espresso but the restaurant doesn’t make espresso drinks. Also they were out of coffee. All in all a wonderful dinner before our play at the Eccles theater.

    The first time I went here the food was fine. The second time, the food was bad. I ordered the veggie burger. It was deep fried something, possibly potatoes. I'll go back just because it's the only game in town if you're downtown and going to an event close to Symphony Hall or Eccles.
