The Ivy is a cool, eclectic restaurant with interesting takes on familiar food. It has one of the best stocked bars in SLC. Every food item ordered was delicious and well presented. The service was excellent!

A great place to go. The service was outstanding, the drinks were great, and the food was spectacular. They were out of stock on some drink items but at least they had the ability to let us know right away as we ordered.

We will definitely be back.

The ambiance is lovely here and love the option of indoor and outdoor seating. Service was wonder, food left a lot to be desired. I ordered the chicken caprese sandwich and enjoyed it, however the charcuterie board was very lack luster and our flatbread was burned. The menu definitely left a little to be desired. Maybe more options? Nothing immediately jumped out as interesting, it looks like more focus has been put on the drinks menu, which

I REALLY want to love this place. I know restaurants are having a hard time but we are receiving THEEEE worst service here. If I were the owner of this place, I would be reaching out to people like me finding out just what is going on. And if the owner/s are actually onsite, then maybe they just don't care? This place has SO much potential but some of the attitudes I've encountered here on various visits, I think I'll wait to see if this place improves. Added to my own experiences, I've actually recommended this place to several friends and none of them are having good experiences when they go. It's unfortunate and I am embarrassed to have suggested they celebrate something special there.

Food and ambiance were great. Unfortunately, service was sub-par. They were trying, but werent hitting the mark. Cons: It took about 30 minutes for someone to come to our table the first time, drinks took another 15-20 min. They brought the wrong drink, when we said they could leave it while making the correct drink, the waitress said "Well I can put it on your tab". First aperol spritz was missing any spritz at all. Some of the service staff seemed miserable. Pros - To their credit, they comp'd an appetizer and our main waitress was kind and was really trying. Gorgeous outdoor space, good food. Overall, I would try again for the ambiance, but another sub par experience would probably drop this off of my list.

The Ivy is such a great spot in downtown SLC. We visited for my partner’s birthday and had an incredible meal with delicious cocktails! The servers and hosts were super friendly and awesome. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning the next time we are in town!

The mussels were ok, the sauce was way thick and very spicy, I’ve had them before so I think this time they probably messed up a little bit. My husband had the ribeye and was amazing, my beet salad was not good. They added truffle olive oil that definitely does not match. Plus not enough seasons which made the olive oil take over, need vinegar and salt. Drinks were good

Great service and knowledge about food and beverage, food portions were large. We were there early on a Friday evening and it was getting busy and louder when we left around 7:15. Fun spot, disappointed that it was raining because the patio is gorgeous

Such a lovely outdoor setting! The staff were a bit slow at first but appeared to be a shift change. Our server was excellent after that. The food was grand in portions and quite tasty. We shared a charcuterie board and then had the salmon, the gnocchi, the shrimp grits and steak frites, all of which were great meals. The cheesecake dessert we shared was also fantastic! We will return!

Food was good, just wasn’t a fan of or table being right by the kitchen door. The door swings open towards our table and it was a distraction the entire time. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband ordered the muscles. Both meals were very good.
