Service was outstanding! All the staff was very attentive. Our server, Sina, was the best ever! He knew the menu upside down and backwards lol. Even offered items that were not listed on the menu to appease my husband. Food was delicious. We’ll most definitely have to return soon. The price was worth the great service!

I’m a chef. Food is way too expensive and it is definitely not done well. Corn chowder needed cream and more salt. Spaghetti and meat balls: sauce should be more liquid and at least three meatballs. It’s more aesthetic. Plate design, plate design, plate design. $165 for three pasta plates and three corn chowders?? Do the math. I know you’re in a very expensive area, close to the sea, I’m okay with the price just not the quality and crafting of the food. You could be a great restaurant, you just choose to be a mediocre one because you get the tourists. I’m a local, by the way.

Service was unprofessional, food was below average and overpriced, quality of food was not good. Outdoor parking lot dining area is cold and a real below par atmosphere. Drink sizes much smaller than before as well. Used to frequent here even in pandemic but experience has declined. Much better choices for quality, price and atmosphere.

The seating in the back is nothing special at all.. People come there to see the water and it feels like u are sitting in a parking lot with zero ambience

Very loud karaoke style music this place used to be charming and wonderful.... if they’d stop with the looping karaoke soundtrack life would go back to it’s beautiful origins of nostalgic jazz 🤷‍♀️ please 🥰

Besides it being a special occasion to go to a restaurant, it’s always special to come to the Ivy at the Shore. I could just have the delicious bread they serve as a meal! You can’t go wrong with any item on the menu but this time we ordered the guacamole and chips and the lobster ravioli. Spectacular and since it was my friend’s birthday, we ended with the red velvet cake. The service was excellent and being able to have an ocean view completed a perfect meal.

Aside from the waiter struggling to deliver my requested drink of Vodka with squeezed lime in a martini glass, the service that followed was very good. This restaurant does an excellent job of socially distancing the tables. I felt safe!

Was for yrs one of my go to places.
They’ve pared down menu , taken most of the old great standbys off the menu.
Probably haven’t had a new chef in many yrs
It’s costly and at most average food.
Last nt I had gumbo which was at most fair, the New York steak that was once one of best in town is blah.
My wife had grilled salad and said vegetable were barely grilled and not up to old standard , and for $36 outrageously
Expensive and poor value.
We’ve sat on patio before which is lovely and great atmosphere
If you go you have to sit on street patio !
We sat in courtyard last nt and has little ambiance !
The parking lot in back is even less desirable .
Overall , while Ivy was one of the first great LA restaurants , it’s time to move on or step up to plate with new chef and new menu worthy of our business
