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!
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!
The Ivy was the last outdoor restaurant to close, it had a great environment, and I will miss it!
Food and service sublime!
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.
The Ivy at the Shore has always been one of my favorite spots. The food is amazing and they pour the best drink in town.
It was a great day to celebrate a birthday! Nice wait staff!
My fathers birthday
We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed sharing appetizers to have a taste of the delicious items on the menu. Entrees were good too. The cookies are amazing.
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.
We was attack by an outsider that jumped the gate or the gate was open.
Outstanding food and service. The patio dining in front of the restaurant is great. Still a classic restaurant.
