Our family went to Ivy Lane to celebrate a big birthday last Sunday night and everything was terrific: the food was outstanding, the service fantastic (Phillip was very attentive/responsive) and the chef came out to chat briefly with us. The char was delicious, with a bold sauce and the perfect balance for the fish. The short ribs were divine - seriously heaven-sent. The desserts we had were too good to rank - all exceptional. The yuzu/lemon gelatto with blueberry gazpacho was unforgettably innovative and delicious. The flavors of the desserts were more than delicious - they gave the end of the meal a nice zest. Ivy Lane is outstanding.

Great restaurant. Jessica, our server was the best and made our meal so enjoyable. She recommended the most delicious options. I am gluten and dairy free and she was so helpful. The food is outstanding. Great NYC restaurant.

We had a great time last night; the hostess was gracious enough to move our table from the bar to the main room, Carl was perfection at the bar— accommodating our every inquiry... and our waitress was also very patient while answering our “what do u recommend” questions (unfortunately I can’t recall her name, but she was the cute blonde, with shoulder length hair). The squid ink gnocchi was amazing and the short rib was the best I’ve ever eaten. My husband ordered the arctic char and loved it— and the beignets were delicious. We’re looking forward to returning in the near future.

The noise level was loud beyond belief. The host turned it down twice for us but it immediately went up to loud. We could not hear what the waitress was saying. We were seated near the fireplace,which was roaring, and we and the table near us were sweltering. Couldn’t wait to get out of there......never to return.

This is a new restaurant that has the potential to be very good. They just have to work out some kinks although not with the food which was already great. The first bottle of wine they brought was far too cold although we finished it prior to it warming up, we also ordered a second bottle and had them decant it immediately to allow it to warm up. The server explained that they keep the wine at 52 degrees which is about right for most white wines and 12-15 degrees to cold for reds as we were drinking. The second bottle did warm up after 45 minutes in a decanter in front of the fire. The server also said things like "no rush, take your time" and then showed up again within 2 or 3 minutes. Then when we were ready to order, it took a while to even get her to look over. All issues that can be resolved with proper wine storage and training. Best of luck and if we see the reviews reflecting positive change as we suspect we will, then we'll return.

We are so happy to see such a great restaurant open in our neighborhood. The decor, food, and service were all excellent. It is American/Korean and delicious food with a creative presentation. Currently they are only serving dinner, but we were told lunch service will start in the near future.
We found out that the hospitality group that own this restaurant have 18 other very successful restaurants and there is no doubt that this will also be a success.

Charming restaurant still very new. There was a problem with the drink orders - they ran out of cranberry juice so no cosmos and no one seemed to know what wines were available. But after several tries they very kindly comped us for the wine we eventually got! Waitress was darling and very apologetic. Staff were attentive and pleasant. Excellent food. Foie gras was amazing!!

The server was excellent. Very attentive and made great recommendations. The food was good not amazing. They’ve only been open a few days at the time we went so they are finding their footing and that’s ok for a casual night out.
