    The service was amazing, they work as a team, so if your head waiter is busy, there were 2-3 others paying attention to your needs. The food was delicious and beautifully plated/presented.

    We were placed on a tiny table in the middle aisle of the front patio. The tiny tables do not get roses. It may sound silly but I was looking forward to a ladies lunch with pretty roses with my friend that I rarely get to see. The noise level was so loud, we could not hear each other and I kept having to repeat myself and raise my voice. I asked our waiter if there was any way we could move to a table along the wall so we were not out in the open (there were 6 open tables). The waiter ignored my request. He was very rude and made me feel like I was not important. I was disappointed with the experience. I had been looking forward to this lunch for weeks.

    The waitstaff was friendly & extremely attentive. Sat outside, cute atmosphere, energetic. My boyfriend ordered the spaghetti with meatballs and he loved it! I ordered the shrimp scampi with pasta. The shrimp were plentiful, but tasteless, the pasta was delicious. Overall would recommend!

    We loved this place. The atmosphere and restaurant is adorable. Everything is made fresh. Food was amazing and very good. Drinks were good. Service was phenomenal from bar staff to waiter. Just everyone was great. It’s a great location where we could see the water fresh flowers. I can’t say enough good things. If we would have went here earlier in our trip we probably would have went back again for a second visit.

    The setting is storybook, the service is impeccable, the food is extraordinary! Always consistent on all fronts, this is one of the most romantic dining experiences in the Los Angeles sphere and it never disappoints! And to think that you also get to look out across the Pacific Ocean, as you dine. Having dined in glamorous circumstances all over the world, THE IVY BY THE SHORE stands shoulder to shoulder with the finest dining experiences to be found in this life!

    Maybe the most mundane food I have ever tasted. And I never leave a review. On top of it you’re forced to listen to most horrible music. Apparently it is the owner’s daughter who may be the worst cover singer on the earth. They need to revisit their offerings.

    We had a lovely anniversary dinner on the back patio. Went for the food not the celebrity sightings. Had the crab cakes and the sea bass special. We were surprised by our awesome waiters with a lovely dessert. Very special evening.

    We love The Ivy on Robertson so much we wanted to try out this location. The food was delicious! Those crab cakes make my day every time and the squash blossoms are incredible. They sat us outside which wasn't nearly as impressive as the other location. I'd recommend requesting an inside table because we were somewhat forgotten about outside.

    Our dining experience was very disappointing for a nice restaurant. The food was mediocre and the service was terrible. Three of us had the fried chicken and we all agreed the flavor was bland. The mashed potatoes had the texture of a frozen dinner. In fact, I questioned whether it was made from powdered potatoes but there were chunks of potato. For dessert, we had the key lime pie, red velvet cake & ice cream sundae. Out of the 3, the ice cream sundae was the best, if that tells you anything. The cake was light but not very flavorful and you couldn't taste the sour cream in the frosting. You could barely taste the lime in the pie. I wondered whether I was eating a lemon pie. However, the worst thing about our dinner was the service. For a nice restaurant, I would expect great service. Our waiter and staff were terrible. We constantly had to call them over to ask for more water, drinks, dessert menu and bill. For still water, we were served bottled water and never offered regular water. I was charged $12 for that bottle and had to request regular water. The waiter never took my kids' drink order. We had to ask several workers for Sprites, including a busboy who shook his head. Not sure if he understood what I was asking or whether he wasn't supposed to take our order for that. Even though there were several open tables, we had to keep calling our waiter over for things such as the dessert menu and the bill. He was either not around, standing in the corner not doing anything or setting out tablecloths on open tables. We never received an appetizer and had to have him go double check with the kitchen before we received an updated bill. In addition, the restaurant had the nerve to charge gratuity for a party of 5. All in all, it was a disappointing experience and I would not recommend this place to others.

    Living off of their brand and not improving the quality and service. Rushed service. Overpriced for the quality. So many other restaurants are doing it better. Been eating there for over 30 years sorry they lost it

    This is a pretty restaurant with friendly staff. The food is good (not exceptional but solidly good) but expensive. They used to have little complimentary extras like welcome champagne and a cookie to take when you leave and that sort of made things feel a little more special. Those little extras are no longer part of the routine it seems, and that is too bad. That said, we had a nice lunch in a pleasant and welcoming environment.

    1:30 pm was a great time for lunch on a Thursday. We had reservations for outside but decided to dine inside because of the heat that day. I had a salad with the scallops that was delicious. It was my friend’s birthday and they surprised her with a dessert plate and what I think is called a Roman candle. The waiters were very attentive and nice. We will be back!!
