The best crab cakes
Love this place. Quintessential and timeless
Food is excellent. Service is also excellent. Very friendly. Just a top dining establishment.
Had the Thanksgiving meal. Crab cakes appetizer were pretty good. Main meal wasn’t very good. Turkey was very dry. Dressing was super over powering with sage. Sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts looked and tasted like they were cooked 3 days earlier.
The Ivy in general is good. But not our meal on Thanksgiving Day.
The Ivy at the Shore is our favorite restaurant in Los Angeles!!
Husband ordered the white truffle pasta special. When it arrived, it was pasta with butter sauce and little bits of white truffle in it. He sent it back because it literally had zero flavor. The second attempt arrived and it was still bland but he tolerated it. When the bill arrived - his “special” pasta dish was $135. Yes - his one flavorless dish was $135. Lesson of the day - ask the price of the “special” before you order. Buyer beware. This place has fallen off a cliff - it’s sad -
Nice setting. Very attentive waiter . Delicious food!
Really special anniversary with the special candle
Overall, a good place to eat. But I was disappointed this time. The wait staff seem like they were not trained and a bit lost. The service was disorderly. For example, I had to ask for the wine menu 4 times to get it. It may be a one time thing as they are probably having a tough time hiring people.
I try to come to Ivy at the Shore foe my birthday every year. Always so nice!
Wonder place. We sat at the bar. The staff was incredible, the food was delicious
Also great for special occasions!
Food was great, just a bit high for simple things like a couple of eggs on a tortilla for $22 …? Ambiance is lovely. Coffee comes in big cups, and they are hand painted, but chipped! All the service ware is hand painted and quaint. Bits made from clay so it easily chips. But the the prices, they should consider retiring the chipped items and replacing them ASAP. There are so many gorgeous, colorful roses on each table. Service is outstanding.
The parking is $14 with a validation. It is rift on Ocean Avenue so I guess they don’t want beach goers and stilling visitors.
Old school service and charm with great food to boot
Everyone lunches were fair to good. The coffee was too weak and servers didn't refill our cups until I asked. We ordered all their desserts which were presented on a platter and that was magnificent! The ambiance is beautiful. Sit indoors. The high ceilings with windows and doors open make for safe dinning. Pricey for the quality of food, but worth going there for a celebration!
Great location! Wonderful service.
Such a special place! Customer service and the food so good!! Wonderful ambiance!
Need the artichoke back! Also the cauliflower side which used to come with it. The Pecan square was way over cooked.
Exceptional, as always. I especially enjoyed the crab-stuffed Santa Barbara lobster.
We had a wonderful meal! The whole experience was perfect!
Always a pleasure!
The Ivy is as good as it has always been for decades! I grew up eating there and it still is as incredible as it was day one! Adore this lovely restaurant.
BEST FOOD AND VIBE
Excelente lugar y muy buena comida .
The customer service & food were excellent!
Lovely and delicious … outstanding service.
Still classic Ivy . The food was very good, not complex , simply really good. Great service . I was surprised we got a reservation say day on a Friday. They are doing a great job even after all these years
It’s not the fault of the restaurant but there was a demonstration just across the street from the restaurant which made it hard to keep a business conversation
I met a friend for lunch to celebrate her recent birthday - we arrived before the restaurant got busy and had an opportunity to catch up. The service, food and ambience was great - we shared a group of small plates (starters) including the crab cakes, the scallops and the tuna tartar - truly wonderful and filling for two ladies! We were surprised by a special birthday cake and dramatic candle - fun and delicious too. Our waiter and assistant waiter were wonderful - attentive and customer-service focused. I enjoyed my experience at Ivy at the Shore - a perfect spot for a special lunch or for any other occasion!
It was amazing! I can’t wait to go back!!
Always great service and delicious food
Upbeat with a fun vibe
Tip: it’s a big restaurant so when you need a spot on a Friday or Saturday last minute- it’s a good place to call.
Great spot where food and drink are always delicious.
Amazing experience. I celebrated my birthday brunch there.. Service Amazing. Food Amazing. From the fresh picked flowers to the plates. AMAZING
Engagement family dinner
Sadly, the restaurant has lost its charm. While the ambiance is great, we felt rushed thru our meal with little warm reception from the staff. In fact, the staff started cleaning tables and stacking chairs right next to us….at 8:30pm.
A special restaurant that makes you and your guests feel special. The food is terrific, too - everybody's favorites along with special dishes. Don't leave without a box of their homemade cookies!
Food was amazing, staff beyond awesome, location terrific (with valet parking); we had a wonderful time. Started with the crab cakes (a MUST), I had the huevos rancheros (delicious), friends had shrimp tacos and raved about them. It's pricey but worth it, will definitely return.
My meal was misprepared twice. I asked for a steak, well done. It was still bloody and pink when it was brought to me. I asked the waiter if it could be cooked a little more to reflect what I asked for initially. The waiter was very kind. He apologized and said he would take it back. When the steak was brought back to me, it was completely burnt to the point I couldn’t even eat it. I told the waiter that I no longer wanted the steak and would take something else. He was very apologetic but could not do anything to accommodate the meal being made incorrectly. I frequently visit The Ivy on Robertson and always have an exceptional experience but this was my first time coming to the Santa Monica location. It was my 5 year anniversary so I wanted to try this location, since it was facing the pier. Unfortunately, I won’t be returning to or recommending this particular location.
Great outdoor patio, fantastic waiter, food was wonderful, amazing desserts!
Loved it! Lovely place and great food and service!
