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 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!

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 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:)

A very safe place dine during the pandemic! My husband and I have met there with three different couples in the last few months - - 2 dinners and 1 brunch. The large open space in the back accommodates many large round tables so social distancing is not a problem and heat lamps made the evenings comfortable. Delicious food and lovely service.

Not the same as pre-covid experiences but we were mostly comfortable where we were seated. The lobster pasta and the sautéed broccoli were both very good though could have been enhanced by fresh herbs. The drinks with the fresh lime and mint are always tasty as was the pecan square dessert with house made praline gelato. My husband wasn’t thrilled when they totally upended the last of the bottle for his wine by the glass. Then he did have to remind them they never returned to top off his short pour which they did correct. I guess it’s hard to get an outstanding experience while wearing a mask.
