    Everything was wonderful until we paid our bill and were finishing our last drinks. The food, our waiter, and the drinks were all amazing. Just seconds after we paid our bill, the hostess came up to us and asked us to leave because they needed our table for someone else. Our reservation was at 5:15 pm, she asked us to leave at 6:55 pm.

    Went to Ivy and Varley for the first time yesterday. Exactly the kind of experience we were looking for with good food and drink and lovely ambience for reconnecting with friends. Only slight negative was the noise level—it was a bit too loud for comfortable conversation at the table. Food was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Will be back.

    Overall it is a good place to have dinner. Service and environment was great, food was good, ahi tuna tartare was just ok! Dessert was terrible, I ordered chocolate strawberry shortcake, it took for ever to arrive, it was old, dry and hard.

    We celebrated out anniversary here. Everything started off good , but then went downhill. Food and drinks were great. Service was HORRIBLE!! We waited 31 minutes before our dirty plates were picked up and not offered dessert and no mention about us celebrating anything even though it was in the reservation.

    Ivy & Varley offers SLC an updated, vibrant dining experience. The service was efficient, too much so in that our mains arrived moments after our appetizers. However, used dishes and glasses sat on our two-top vying for the limited space with the next course. I felt rushed by the kitchen’s rapid dispatch of food. The server returned my seared ahi tuna to the kitchen while we finished our salad where it sat for five minutes cooling. Great vibe, needs to mature the service end of the business.

    Come for the food and drinks, but don't make plans for after, you'll be here awhile. Saw most of the staff just outside the front door smoking multiple times, or sitting inside in groups laughing on the way to the bathrooms. Even when they were on the patio where all of the diners were at the time, there were many times that they were standing just outside the door talking and laughing. That would all be fine if there weren't a lot of people waiting to eat or if everyone had already been taken care of, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. Great food and beautiful ambiance were dampened by staff that treated work like a party.

    A young crowd, very energetic and noisy. I got a late table reservation for open table, the table was very close to the door and Kitchen entry. Got the feeling the waiter was hurrying us along, and considered us inconsequential because we weren’t young and hip.

    This place has a great atmosphere, its upscale but not fussy. The food is pretty good. We loved the brussel sprout app and the beet hummus. The strawberry and goat cheese salad was good. I liked the caprese chicken sandwich, but would suggest a different bread other than focaccia. It was entirely too big to fit in ones mouth, so eating it with the bread seperated and with a fork and knife kind of defeated the purpose of it being a sandwich. We did go on a bit of a chilly night, and wanted to sit outside. After being seated we asked if we might be allowed to move to another table under one of the heaters. The wait staff asked the hostess and they said no. That was a bit odd, since one of the tables under the heaters was never occupied during our dinner. I get it if its going to be used, but since it wasn't, I feel our request wasn't too out of the ordinary and should have been accommodated. This place is probably better as a drinks and apps place to hang out, not necessarily quite a sit down dinner place yet, but with improvement it could be both.

    We mixed a selection of appetizers and all were wonderful. The place was just getting busy when we were there, early supper, so the music was a but loud, but that seems to be a trend these days.

    Neglected by our server who never checked in on us. Had to ask another server for drinks, wine did not arrive on time with the entree as asked. Server was chatting with friends beyond the fence (right by our table) rather than asking if we wanted dessert or drinks. We decided to leave due to poor service. Our server did not verify any allergies or preferences- two dishes with pork were served to us unknowingly. Very disappointed and frustrated about this bad experience.

    Big hype for a very pedestrian experience. Our server wasn't very interested in us, seemed ready to bolt as soon as we ordered drinks; we had to drag him back to order our apps and dinner. Food was good, just the presentation, and attention was pretty lacking.

    The indoor dining ambience at I&V is a little stark and moderately loud, with not a lot of material to absorb sound but I am sound-sensitive. My server was attentive and enthusiastic. The Brussels sprouts were outstanding and our party had never seen sweet potato gnocchi, with rave reviews.
