We enjoyed our meal and drinks but our waiter was super pushy in wanting us to order more food and drinks. We ordered steak and it wasn’t cooked medium it was well done and also the carne asada wasn’t medium it was a also well done. We didn’t complain about the carne asada but sent back the steak. We all ate expect for my daughter, her steak arrived after we finished eating and it was medium well. She was so hungry and upset at that point. The bill came and I saw that the steak wasn’t removed from the bill. I’m happy to support our local restaurants but I don’t like my waiter to be pushy and my steak over cooked. Only because I’ve seen the owners in the past and saw how nice kind and friendly they are I was forgiving. All I can say today wasn’t The Ivy standards.

They have expanded out onto the sidewalk. The menu is much smaller but the food is still very good. Service was spotty, but I understand that running a restaurant under these conditions is challenging. I miss the complimentary sparkling wine and the small bag of cookies at the end. They said that they don't serve the sparkling wine due to Covid, but there was no problem bringing a bottle to the table when we ordered by the glass!

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic with required face masks and distance seating requirements, we had a wonderful time on the patio at The IVY. It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon. The wait staff was courteous, prompt and professional. We were seated under a lovely tree at the front-left-corner of the patio. The meal was delicious... the music lively... it brought back good memories of The IVY pre-COVID -19.

The Ivy on Robertson is absolute perfection, IMHO. The food is always fresh and delicious with beautiful presentation. Wait staff are always courteous and friendly. They even happily obliged to cook up some delicious grilled chicken for our German Shepherd that was traveling from Oregon with us... they only charged $4, which was very generous of them. The decor of the entire property, inside and out, is truly a sight to behold... country cottage chic, paired with fresh cut and potted roses, fresh citrus on display throughout. Truly my happy place. Haven’t t been to The Ivy on the water in Santa Monica yet, but Dolce Isola, their bakery just down Robertson Blvd is also delicious and inexpensive as well. The Ivy is spend your, but worth every single penny.

It was a perfect day to have a birthday celebration. The Ivy giblet was a great way to start. The softshell crab was amazing, as was the fried chicken. The staff was attentive and friendly. We were socially distanced and felt very safe. The BEST banana split in town! Did miss the chocolate chip cookie to take home.

Came with 2 wheelchairs to celebrate mom’s bday. The staff could not have been more accommodating. I have been coming to the Ivy for decades but thought it was better then ever. Food and service was perfection and most importantly I felt safe and complete social distancing. Amazing staff and so delicious.

Despite COVID, a great (outdoor) place for birthday brunch. Pricey, but memorable - and worth it for a special occasion.

Beautiful outdoor scenery/ambiance. The staff was welcoming and provided excellent service. Love the decor and simply being able to enjoy a glass of wine in such a peaceful setting with my family. My salmon dish was exquisite.

Overpriced. My mom and I split a plate, and they charged extra for that without telling us. Would not say the food is worth the price.

We came to celebrate my husband’s Birthday. We had an amazing experience. We felt safe with great distancing between tables and all service precautions. Service was fantastic- attentive but not obtrusive. They gave a surprise Birthday desert which was the perfect end to a wonderful treat of a night out l!

Considering that the restaurant was not busy because COVID 19, service was mediocre.
The food was well prepared but not the expectations from this restaurant.
Perhaps the limitations created by the pandemic, has affected the normal quality of
the food. No excuse for the service on an evening that the restaurant was less than half full.
