Ivy at the Shore
AMAZING. Incredible food, great atmosphere. Impeccable service!
It had been so long since I went to the Ivy (any of them) and it was such a beautiful day. The patio made for such a pleasant dining experience + our waiter, Steve, was a total gem.
Wish I could go every weekend!
Wow, what a horrible experience. Service was awful. Forget to bring us our ice teas and then tells us they are on the way when we asked after asking the other server to bring them right in front of us. Took our order and then after all done says they don’t have the salad and entree tonight. Like he just remembered it. The chicken , advertised as half a chicken was a small cutlet, with minimal flavor. The prices are high, food is mediocre and service is poor. Not worth it, avoid this restaurant and go somewhere else that appreciates your business.
We had a wonderful, social distancing birthday dinner for my husband.. everything was to perfection and great space made for the tables in the back parking lot. thank you so much. Lisa
They did not serve me at all and told me that the reservation was made too late for their business hours. They even called me to verify that I was on the way and waited until I arrived fully dressed to tell me that they could not serve me or my party on my BIRTHDAY. They blamed it on the app and said it should have never been made that late.
I’d go back for a date. Outdoor area was awesome, romantic and also mice to go for a girls night.
Impecable service, beautiful decoration with roses on the table.
Just make sure you get a table at the terrace in the entrance and not at the parking lot in the back.
Mojito are so great, they are served with a piece of real sugar cane. Either virgin or with Alcohol both age delicious.
Wakters gracious and food delicious
I think it’s beautiful here but I am used to going to the Beverly Hills location. The lobster pasta at this location was horrible the pasta sauce was sooooo greasy and the noodles were soooo over cooked.
It was sad to see the inside completely empty, but it’s the world we live in. The patio seating while spread out was close to the Ivy pre-covid. The food, drinks, and service were great and it gave us a welcome break from the virus and fires. Look forward to returning soon
Everything was great
Food and drinks off their best tonight. Front outdoor dining seating very strange -
with zero dress code system in place, it seemed course and discouraging to us, although we are sympathetic that covid has changed everything.
The outside venue near the coast in Santa Monica was pleasant. The service was excellent with decent wine list. The food was underwhelming, not like my visits to The Ivy years past.
The food was horrible. Had the shrimp tacos and fish & chips. Expected better. The food has gone very downhill. Service was great but horrible food
I love this place, but the best part is sitting on the front patio or even inside where it is beautiful. so during COVID, when you are placed in aback parking lot it loses some of its appeal. I've never had an issue for paying high prices for simple food because I love the place itself. not sure if I will go back until Covid is "over". also, the drinks which are already priceyt, I changed from vodka to tequila and they upped me $6. it was Casamigos and it was delicious, so it's worth it, but still, $24 for a gimlet seems a little nuts. still love the grilled veggie salad and crab cakes...
Excellent food and service, despite the conditions of them having to set up tables in their parking lot. It was a great experience. Just wish they had their famous cookies at the end!
The fried calamari and grilled vegetable salad with shrimp are excellent. There is not a lot of batter on the calamari and the salad has a rich mix of flavors and textures.
I would avoid the Ivy's signature drink, the Ivy Gimlet , unless you like very tart and sweet cocktails.
Our waiter was very friendly, but didn't tell us when we arrived at 1:50 p.m., that late breakfast service ends at 2:00 p.m. until I tried to order the lobster scramble at 2:15 p.m.
Our first night out in 6 months, it was a great decision to do that at The Ivy. Immediate parking available next door. Food was amazing, service was A++, staff was super friendly and It was great to eat at the patio. Went at night, so a little dark on the patio, but overall an amazing experience considering the circumstances. Favorite parts were the praline dessert and strawberry mojitos. Thank you!!
The grilled swordfish is always a home run. And of course, the fried chicken
Great food! Lovely ambiance and outdoor seating was just beautiful. Wonderful service will be back again very soon
We went to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and it was the first time we have been to a restaurant since March. We had the best time!! The food, the staff, the special touches were, as usual, OUTSTANDING! They made the night extra special!
Dinner on the (former parking lot) patio was wonderful. Food, service and a romantic ambiance. Seems like in these the trying times, the Ivy at the Shore has really stepped up.
The highlight of our dinner was our waitress, Antoinette. She was superb, knowledgeable about the food, excellent service, great attitude and a nice sense of humor to boot. As appetizers my wife and I had heirloom tomatoes and burrata salad. The tomatoes were excellent. For entrees, she had the swordfish and I had fish and chips. Her swordfish was bland and rather tasteless. The fish and chips were an exceptional looking dish as it included a scallop (delicious), shrimp, calamari, onion rings, cole slaw in addition to the fish and chips. All were good although I would have liked a 2nd piece of fish and perhaps fewer French fries and onion rings. The wine list is very favorably priced.
They did a nice job converting the back parking lot to a nice dining area~
Covid conditions so ambiance is not what it usually is.
Amazing service and location. The ambiance was great.
Loved the crab Benedict and the grilled vegetable salad with shrimp!! The best!!!
We were visiting from Santa Barbara for the weekend. I had the lobster with pasta and pink sauce and crab cake appetizers which tasted very fresh and delicious. My husband ordered the filet mignon and bottle of red wine from Mendoza Spain which was a fruity bold and brought out wonderful flavors from our meal!! The praline with gelato dessert was decadent and paired well with the cappuccino after our meal. We enjoyed dining outdoors in the back patio which was open and spacious and offered safety for diners during COVID-19. Our waiters wore masks and made sure we had our requests met with excellent customer service. We have been to the other location in Beverly Hills twice before for Mother’s Day and they were both fantastic dining experiences !!
Ivy did a fabulous job creating an outdoor dining experience! I felt totally comfortable and safe! And it was beautiful. Great job Ivy!!! 😍
Wonderful job decorating the parking lot. Great ambience.
Waiter amazing, food amazing!
I love The Ivy .. but this was not happening .... everything is different .. very, very average .. sorry lovely Ivy .. I know you will come back to your normal again in the future
Fish and Chips were not crisp and were disappointing. the grilled vegetable salad did not have as much lobster as it usually does and the flowers on the table were wilted/dead.
We LOVE both of the IVY restaurants so we were a disappointed especially since we were celebrating a family birthday. thank you for reading this:)
Excellent service from Steve, food cooked to perfection, ambience the best and Covid precautions taken seriously . Was so grateful the Ivy was open so we could celebrate Our 34th anniversary At our favorite Place !
I have been to the Ivy so many times. It has always been one of my favorites. It was the first time for my boyfriend, he had the famous crab-cakes he loved them. It was a delightful social distanced evening.
My first time here and it was wonderful! Staff very friendly and the food was delicious!
Ambiance!!Food!!! Service!!! View!! Awesome 💯
The Ivy is a classic. the food and service are excellent. Many of the staff have been there for years and years. it's the bet restaurant on Ocean Avenue.
Great service, delicious food, the heat wave made it a little warm; but as good as can be expected. Can’t wait to return
Great Service, quality of food is very good. certainly recommend the crab cakes! Great choice for special occasion they make you feel special with their special birthday dessert...
