    We were the first to sit down as they open at 11 am for brunch. They did not have any alternative milks for coffee, which would have been fine except they also did not have any jams/ jellies for toast so they were out of a lot of things. The food was very salty - almost unpalatable. The ambiance was great, very cute space and the waitress was friendly.

    This was our first visit to Ivy & Varley, although we were familiar with the location-- it's in the building where Caffe Molise was before moving to what used to be The Bay. We went for an early lunch and happy to eat in the wonderful outdoor patio shaded area. The misting was on, so it was very pleasant. Our server, Ophelia, was friendly. I was not happy that the online menu was not the same one that was scanned there. I chose the restaurant based off of a pear salad, however, it was not offered; instead, they had a strawberry salad. I ordered the truffle burger with fries, and my daughter ordered the salad. We also had a Brussels sprouts appetizer, which was tasty. My daughter inquired about the berries in the salad and was told it would be a combo of different kinds of berries. In reality, it had two--strawberries and blackberries (her least favorite). It also said "mixed field greens" and it was ONLY arugula, which she only likes if mixed with other greens (like spinach, baby lettuces, frisee, radicchio, etc.)There was almost no dressing or manchego cheese on it. She did request more cheese, which they provided. But, after a couple bites, she wasn't impressed. Despite several table visits by staff, there was no acknowledgement of the uneaten food or offer to replace her meal, even though anyone could tell it was barely touched. My experience was the opposite: the burger was cooked as ordered and very good; but, the fries were the star of the dish. Had I dined by myself, I would give it a better score, but, because of the poor experience my daughter had, it is a bit lower. I would recommend this restaurant, but, with caution.

    I’ve been to the Ivy a few times and each time it just keeps getting better and better! The breakfast sandwich with veggie sausage is so tasty and fresh! The veggie hash is my all time favorite. The Ivys patio is unreal! I can’t believe it exists in slc. But more than anything, the best part of my experiences here have been with the staff. Our server Maya was so sweet and patient with me and helped me order the perfect breakfast sandwich. Also, Andrew one of the bartenders there was super helpful and made the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had! Would absolutely recommend the Ivy to slc residents and visitors alike.

    Had a reservation for 8 o’clock didn’t get set until almost 815 was told by the hostess that the table that was eating at ours hadn’t left yet and there was two other tables open that were two tops. One sat We didn’t even get seen by a server for another 15 minutes. We set in the side room, I think the air conditioning was broken I was sweating my entire meal. The server seemed like it was her first night working she would start talking and begin to walk away midsentence I could barely understand what she said. I’m a chef for a living, If you’re going to charge these prices do better.

    Outdoor patio vibe was perfect. Food and drinks were amazing! Waitress was a bit slow to get to us when we got there but she made up for it by moving us to a better table, checking on us frequently, and was gracious enough to take our pic prior to leaving. Definitely recommend this place!

    Our server was very friendly and food was good! Only thing was the outside patio's misters were just blowing straight up in the air not on or near us or anyone else so felt like a waste and would have been refreshing on the hot summers day. Fountain area looked like it could've been cleaned

    Not impressed with the service from wait staff. We waited long periods of time for drinks, etc when the restaurant wasn’t very busy at all, and when our group’s food came out they had no idea whose food went where. Lots of reaching over us and we were passing around our dinners. We were seated outside which was lovely except for the gross water in the pool. Also, a couple of us ordered the steak and when it came out, it looked like a huge blob of BROWN stuff on a plate. No color, nothing nice about it. I was almost embarrassed to have it in front of me. Horrible presentation. Horrible! Overall, though the ambiance is great and the staff were friendly, and I think they did their best considering either a lack of training or they might have been short staffed. Our waiter was very new, and a super sweet guy. He really tried to take good care of us. Things just came up short in my opinion. For an establishment such as this, I think one expects superb service and at least a pretty food presentation on all entrees.

    Lovely dinner to celebrate our 29th. First time here. Loved the outdoor space. Our waitress Rinoche was wonderful. One blip on the menu. I ordered the salmon with a Mexican Street Corn type side dish. While the salmon was cooked medium and very moist the side dish was cold and a bit gluey. Manager type said yep, that’s how they served it. No where on the menu says it’s a cold side. Wasn’t too bad, just odd. Me a corporate chef for 30+ years. Serve what you advertise or state it better. Just saying.

    The roti with Thai mussels was a little on the undercooked side. The fried rice in the kimchi bowl was in tasteless clumps but the rest of the vegetable flavors in the bowl were great.

    Overall, most of the food was delicious. The Kimchi salad missed the mark and theJackfruit sandwich wasn’t hot when served. A bit disappointed that our server didn’t take notice that both of those dishes went almost completely untouched. I would think the chef would want feedback. But we did have many more dishes that were yummy: Brussels sprouts, mussels, beets & burrata, scallops & catfish sandwich. Those all hit the high water mark.

    We had dinner for the first time at Ivy and Varly on Sunday. The service was outstanding and our dinner was delicious! We let our server know that we were pressed for time as we were going to the play at Eccles Theater after dinner. Our server, Rob, was very accommodating. Nothing was rushed and we had plenty of time to enjoy our meal followed by coffee before the play. One suggestion for the restaurant is that they consider adding espresso to their menu.
