My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary dinner and had the most amazing experience! The staff are so friendly and inviting, not to mention we had the BEST truffle gnocchi EVER! I highly recommend happy hour and staying for dinner, which is what we did. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the bok choy paired really nicely. Everything was so reasonably priced for the neighborhood and the high quality menu. All around great experience! Will definitely be coming back.

Second time eating here. Very nice restaurant with nice menu of cocktails and range of food choices, ranging from light fare to full meals. Excellent service. Decor is sophisticated but not pretentious. It was very busy on Saturday night at dinner, but our group was still able enjoy our dinner conversation.

This was my first time coming to Ivy Lane, the food and service were exceptional. I was greeted by the manager Wilmer who showed me to my seat and later in the evening the Chef came out and introduced himself. Elizabeth was our server and she was very attentive and helpful when recommending dishes. Although all the food was phenomenal my personal favorite was the Burrata. It was my first time trying Burrata and I’m glad I was able to experience theirs. I may even be back this week with my friend who is flying in from Houston.

What a great find! The food was delicious and the service excellent. Our friend was late for our reservation as the planes were delayed due to weather. Our server didn't rush us as we slowly sipped our cocktails and had appetizers. The menu had several choices out of the usual restaurant selections; delicious fish choices and cornish hen. Look forward to the next visit.

Went here with a friend because their Brussels were on a “Top 10 in NYC” list that I found; the food (including the Brussels) ended up being a tad bit underwhelming. Pork belly was dry and sort of flavorless, Brussels were good but nothing special, and the bok choy was surprisingly chewy and lacked any specialness flavor-wise. However, the truffle oil squid gnocchi was AMAZING, and made our meal worth the trip. Great consistency, cheesy and rich without being heavy, and a fun new thing to try. Our server was nice and very helpful, as was the rest of the staff. The overall vibe was very titillating, and the aesthetic extremely trendy New York designs. But I think there are much better food places in this part of town. Might give it another shot. We shall see...

Not sure why fusions restaurants always seem to have good appetizers but the main courses fall flat. The meal started out well with oysters and steak tartar, and the vegy chips they put on the table are addicting. But as we moved on with the meal, and tried the squid ink gnocchi and the strip steak, the enjoyment was over.

The gnocchi was very heavy and not fluffy like gnocchi should be. The truffles that we had on top also did not carry the usual aroma of a good black truffle, which made me wonder if it had been frozen and then defrosted. The NY strip steak was just OK, but the bone marrow was rubbery and the vegy chips on the side (still delicious) were no longer special because they had already given them to us on the table since we sat down.

Went with my girlfriends. had a great time. Great place. 3 levels of happiness, the ambiance is fun and casual. Our waiter understood that we were there for talking and gossiping with wine and then we will ask for food. he executed our needs perfectly.
The food was good, the short rib was excellent. Tuna tartare is small portion, not meant to be shared- get 2 or more.
There was great music.

My colleague and I generally enjoyed Ivy Lane. The food was very good, and the service friendly and attentive. I had to order my third choice for wine; they were out of the first two. We asked for a quiet table, and they did the best they could, though the noise level made conversation into work. Overall, we enjoyed the meal and the friendly, welcoming, if loud, ambience.

I deliberately made reservations during happy hour to benefit from lower prices. While the food was excellent, the price problem is exemplified by the wine, which was $8 a glass, compared to the regular price of $16. This was far from a bargain, however, because the pour was the smallest I'v ever seen in any restaurant, including happy hours. An acceptable amount of wine necessitated a second glass, bringing the price to the regular price (I am assuming the regular price glass would have twice as much as the portion I got; if not, this place has a real problem.) I realize I could have complained and probably gotten more, but no customer should have to do that. Most of the food is the same price as the regular menu. I would still recommend Ivy Lane; just be forewarned.

the restaurant is beautiful and comfortable. the service was fine and we were not rushed and the seating was spaced out enough to offer some conversation privacy.
the menu does not have many choices but we all found something to enjoy.
the only minus was that we paid $21 for a vodka martini that was served in a "small martini" glass and weak, we had to complain.
the restaurant had a positive reaction to our complaint as we were served another martini, on the house, which was much stronger.
overall, the food fine, many unusual offering but the menu was somewhat over priced but we had a very nice dinner.
the bar bill gets you every time!
