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...

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”.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Didn’t catch our servers name but staff was great when I called to let them know we were running behind on our reservations. The service was amazing and the food was so flavorful. My friends had the ivy burgers and I had the Cornish Hen. It all exceeded our expectations! The oysters are a little small, I’m from down South and have always gotten the big oysters but the flavor was so good and didn’t even taste fishy. I had a #10 on the cocktail menu that consisted of Chili vodka and tequila, I just had to taste it and I can say it was amazing too, smelled spicy but taste sweet! Overall 10/10 it was pricey but definitely worth the price!

The food was amazing. Fantastic, creative and delicious. We had the foie gras, steak bibimbap and the Cornish hens and all were fantastic. Creative and perfectly executed. The chef is truly a find and I can’t wait to see what he does in the future. Excellent cocktails. Warm and efficient server. Decor OK but will go back for food alone.

The hostess at front door was rude and incompetent. Food and other servers saved our experience.
