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!
We had a great time. Our server was exceptional!
Loved my food and experience. Will be returning.
The service was amazing and the food was delicious . I will definitely recommend
I come once a week abs it is always wonderful. Servers are so attentive and friendly. My veggie salad and Ivy gimlet heavenly. Thank you
What a beautiful restaurant and highly professional and attentive service. Highly recommended
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
I wish the server was a bit more welcoming and energetic. There were some people who were helpful but our specific waiter was not pleasant
I come once a week and I really enjoy it. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food and my Ivy gimlet are wonderful. Thank you 😊
They did a great job despite COVID situation. We didn’t have a great table but understand why. I will be a regular!
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.
Great place will definitely be back
always an amazing establishment...was so good to be back seated amongst the flowers!
Always love my grilled vegetable salad with chicken and my Ivy gimlet. Thank you 😊
It was the best staff was helpful and friendly accommodating to my husband on crunches atmosphere everything was superb
Doing better than most to create a safe, enjoyable dining experience. Food and drinks as good as ever, with terrific service.

Food came out very quickly. Drinks were good. Sat in the back parking lot which was not so great.
I was disappointed with the crabcakes. Sent them back for swordfish tacos, which was better but not spectacular.
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!
Great neighborhood restaurant with great food and ambiance. A favorite.
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
This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Monica. The service is impeccable and the food always good.
great recommendation from the waiter...spacing was good too...can't wait to come back
You can count on high quality food, service and ambience at Ivy at the Shore.
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Always love my vegetable salad with chicken and Ivy gimlet. I’m a regular and will stay that way. Thank you!
It’s always a wonderful experience! The service and food are outstanding.
staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. can't wait to return
Was here a few months ago for the first time . So I decided to come back with my mom and kids. We drove 6 hrs just to go to this place. I love it and so does my family ❤️
If you are in the area this place is a must
Great service and pretty setting
This restaurant never fails to please. They did a great job of converting the open space behind the main building. Service fantastic. Delicious food. What a great choice for the first weekend when we could actually dine out again. Can't wait for next time:)
There should be more items on the menu even though we are dining outside due to Covid. Variety is also the spice of life!!!
Always love my salad and gimlet. Thank you and I’ll be back!
