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.
Amazing. The happy hour is off the charts and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this place!!
Thanks so much for your review. We're delighted to hear that you had a great experience and are looking forward to you joining us again!
It was my birthday and the staff did everything to ensure it was a great dining experience. We had the best time and the food was amazing! Will definitely be a repeat customer of this restaurant.
Thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased you had such a nice birthday here at Ivy Lane and are looking forward to hosting you again soon!
The meal was good. Waitress forgot one item we had ordered. Wine was good.
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.
We tried Ivy lab
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.
This was our first visit to Ivy Lane and we were impressed :) Good menu, great wine, nice beers, and excellent service.
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.
Not your fault- but why would Open Table notify me AFTER WE LEFT YOUR PLACE that reservation did not qualify for points??
From the beginning, the waiter was disinterested, rude when asked for mustard, simply one of the worst servers of good food we’ve experienced.
Loved everything about this place - the food, our waitress, the ambiance. Just wonderful!
Thank you, Carrie. We're so glad to hear that you had a wonderful experience!
Music was too loud, we also have to wait for 30 mins till they give us our table even though the restaurant was not busy!
We're sorry that you were disappointed with the music level and wait. We will look into it!
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...
Thanks for your review. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our famous Squid Ink Gnocci and superb service. Hope to see you again!
Everything I tried as amazing - with four of us at the table we pretty much ordered all the apps - I had the Hake as my main course and it was superb and loved the chili vodka and tequila drink named “ten”.
Thanks for your kind review, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed everything!
The hostess had an attitude, we had a reservation and had to wait a half an hour to be seated. The drinks were not balanced. The food was sub par. Incredibly overpriced. Not worth it.
We're so sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience.
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.
We appreciate your detailed feedback and we're sorry to hear that you were disappointed in some of our dishes. We will share your insights with our kitchen and hope that you will give us another chance to impress you in the future.
Food was very poor. Nice looking place

2 friends came in to town and we thought all was terrific and delicious!
Thanks for your review, Ginger. We're delighted to hear that everyone enjoyed it!
Exceptional food, great looking crowd but soft table service.
Thanks for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed it!
Loved it best drinks and food was creative. Would go back
Thanks for your review, we look forward to seeing you again!
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.
Thanks for your kind review. We're thrilled to hear that everyone enjoyed the experience!
Great experience last Saturday night. Excellent craft cocktails at the bar, then lovely dinner. Our server, Elizabeth, was very attentive. We really enjoyed our dinner. Would highly recommend the burrata, bok choy and the burgers.
Thanks for your review, we're so glad to hear you enjoyed the food and cocktails!
The food was delicious. Great wine and cocktails too. Waiter was fantastic.
Thanks for your review, Kim. So glad you enjoyed it!
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.
Food was good. Nothing really stood out in the experience besides the noise level.
Thanks for your review, Randall. We hope that you will give us another chance to impress you. Cheers!
Great food options and great for groups. The service was excellent, we loved the cocktails and wine list. Most of the food was delicious, just slightly salty on a couple of options but generally everyone was very satisfied.
We appreciate your review and feedback, Lacey. Glad you all enjoyed your experience with us!
Once we got past the surly hostess everything was great. Very eclectic menu, we particularly loved the truffle
gnocchi appetizer. Portions were generous. Nice wine and beer section. Waitstaff was very gracious and efficient. Definitely a good addition to the area!
Thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear about your experience with the hostess, but we're happy that you enjoyed the rest of your evening with us. Hope to see you again!
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.
We'e sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the wine portion served and we will definitely take your feedback into consideration. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again!
Great meal, only slightly diminished by a noisy nearby table.
Thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your meal with us (and apologize for the noisy table neighbors). Cheers!
Fun evening. Some service snafus that were resolved but the food is great and it's a good scene.
Thanks for your review and helpful feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed your evening with us!
We encountered a few issues, but the manager handled it quite excellently and we really appreciated it. On that note, it did not stop us from enjoying the delicious food. The Squid Ink Gnocchi was a clear favorite and the beignets - a must! We can’t wait to come back and try other things. Service was much improved and enjoyed the ambiance of the place. Very chic!
Thank you for your review, Steph. We're thrilled to hear that our Manager treated you well and that you enjoyed your overall experience. Hope to see you again!
There for NYE. Everything on the menu was spectacular except the dessert. Expected more from the molten chocolate cake! But the lamb papardelle, Cornish hen and gnocchi appetizer were out of this world. Service was excellent as well!
Thank you for your review, Cynthia. So glad you enjoyed the food and service and we appreciate your feedback regarding the Molten Chocolate Cake. Hope to see you again!
Amazing Food & Service ! My wife and I are big Chef Park Fans and were glad to find him so close after our show at lincoln center. From the steak tartare to the buratta to the amazingly fresh oysters everything was amazing ! We look forward to going back and trying even more of the menu next time
Thanks for your kind review, Jay. We're delighted to hear that you and your wife enjoyed Chef Park's offerings at Ivy Lane. We look forward to seeing you again!
Experience was great. Our waiter who spoke Russian was terrific and a credit to the restaurant. Will definitely return.
Thank you, Ralphh. We look forward to seeing you again!
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!
Thanks for your review. We appreciate your detailed feedback and it's good to hear that you had a good service experience. Happy New Year!
Loved the menu & wine list. It's too loud for conversations.
Thanks for your review and feedback. Happy New Year!
Philip was an exceptional waiter. The seven fishes course was excellent excellent excellent excellent
Thank you for your kind review, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the Seven Fishes so much!
Music was way too loud that I had to scream to talk to my guests. The waitstaff was a bit too aggressive and we felt rushed to order. Food presentation was nice but it was too salty we didn’t finish eating.
Tom, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience and we really appreciate your feedback. Have a very Happy New Year.
A nice addition to the neighborhood. The Upper East Side is a restaurant wasteland so anything interesting with good food and atmosphere is always very welcome.
Thank you for your review. We're thrilled to be in the neighborhood and we're happy to hear you enjoyed your experience!
