    Restaurant has changed. Service still excellent but food has gone downhill. Calamari and crab cakes greasy. Cesar salad soaked with dressing. Large shrimp pizza four tiny slices and greasy. Can only wonder size of small pizza. Prices way up. I would definitely choose different place for something special

    One of my all time favorite restaurants. I have always loved the decor and the vibe. I make a point of visiting whenever I am in town. This time the food was especially good. Great fun. Strangely quiet for a Friday night. With hipness only lasting 3 months in LA, I hope the classics stay around

    As always, a perfect night. Brought a few couples who had only been to Robertson, first time at the Shore. They all are hooked. Loved the relaxed style and obviously the amazing food. Rick was helping everyone with his usual style and grace….he’s a true gem. All in all a fantastic evening, fun for all!

    With a table of 7 people right next to us, and the patio packed, it was impossible to have a conversation with out yelling. Very frustrating. However l love the lvy, the waiters and bus staff are very friendly and considerate, and the food is terrific. It is still one of my favorite restaurants in town

    I’m a regular at this restaurant because of the consistency. Last night the service was disappointing. The waiter and the buser were not communicating , they kept getting everything wrong. The host was another problem, he kept trying to sit me at really crappy tables. When I asked to me moved he said those tables are for reservations, well I had a reservation.!! I was quite surprised with the poor service when it’s usually the total opposite!

    This is an amazing restaurant with beautiful decor and ocean views. The staff is amazing and welcoming. My food was busting with flavor. I enjoyed the crab cakes for appetizers and the main course shrimp salad so delicious I had to take most of it home. The beautiful hardy bouquet 🌹 roes on every cloth table was simply beautiful. Juan and Jesus was my waiters and they were amazing. There are three dining areas for your enjoyment. Their drink menu is vast and complementary to your meal. This is a wheelchair accessible restaurant. Valet parking is available. Enjoy this beautiful restaurant and staff.

    I have been an Ivy customer since the 90’s and I will not return. I made a 8:45 reservation. My party arrive a few minutes 9:00. We were told the the kitchen closes at 9:00, totally unacceptable. I explained to the manager that this obviously means we will all not be able to eat. The real question is why in the world would you book a 8:45 reservation if the kitchen closes at 9:00 (and without making it clear, when the reservation was made that we would only have 15 minutes to order) The night was a total waste of time and your staff was unwilling to make any accommodation.

    Beware the online menu prices are very misleading. The $25 for a pizza, is for a children's pizza, which is very small. We booked a table for 8pm, it was apparent that this was very inconvenient as we were told a few times before we even sat down that the kitchen wanted to close. Mediocre food and very overpriced.

    Great location. Fantastic service. Beautiful decor. I had the fresh vegetable salad with Lobster portion was generous. Hope you don’t mind paying $50 for a salad?! Family ordered calamari appetizer which was delicious. Everyone was satisfied with their dish. Food quality is very good. Don’t forget to order The chocolate chip cookies for dessert with fresh whip cream. They are yummy.

    Die Reservierung über OpenTable lief reibungslos. Das Ambiente und Dekoration sind toll. Die Bedienung ist schnell und professionell , aber man merkt, dass alles auf schnellen Durchsatz ausgelegt ist. Das Essen ist geschmacklich gut. Aber, für eine Portion Spaghetti mit Fleischbällchen fast 40 Dollar zu verlangen ist schon happig. Leider ist es auch sehr laut.

    We had a lovely dinner last night which was New Year’s Eve. We were seated right away at a nice table. We had the crab salad, the fish and chips ( which actually was fish, shrimp, scallops and calamari with sauces. Also the fresh Salmon. We definitely saved the best for last with the Tarte Tatin, which was excellent! It was obviously busy but the service was great. Everyone in a festive mood!

    The Ivy is our favorite place to be for an early dinner on New Years Eve. The service was exceptional as always. Every dish is cooked to perfection—fish, steak, salads, Mexican rice, and lobster. To finish off the meal, the desserts were memorable. Even the pumpkin gelato was delicious. Thanks for a wonderful time.
