I’ve been coming here since 2012 and it’s one of my favorite places. Everyone who works there is kind and some funny. The food is always great and tasty and the drinks are delicious.

The food was mediocre, especially considering that the price for a single entre without appetizers or desserts is 30 dollars. Really disappointed

Food was awful & tasteless. Guacamole dip was just mashed under-ripened avocados, no added anything, no flavor. Tuna tar tare was awful & mushy, u could spread it on toast, slimey consistency. Ceaser salad unremarkable with no shaved parm (had cheap shakeable parm) & grilled shrimp on top no flavor.
Excellent service. Server was very pleasant & very attentive.

My only criticism is that they brought out the main course while the starters were still on the table which no good restaurant should ever do

I had the lamb and crab cakes. The crab cakes were yummy and the lamb was cooked well but just ok in taste - not seasoned but a little salt helped. I told the waiter I wasn't a big drinker but I wanted to try the mojito I asked that they only use half the alcohol. I'm not sure if they did or not but it tasted strong and it went to waste. It likely could have been saved with extra juice to thin it but that would've involved my waiter actually checking on me.

The service however, was terrible. I saw my waiter only 1 time and that was when he took my order. His backup checked on me twice for bread and grabbed me the salt. The lead waiter was so mojito that I received my bill with a Panna water (I'd ordered) yet I never received it in my hour of waiting for my entrée. I usually tip extremely well - in the 50% range but, this service was so bad I just couldn't and I tipped the minimum.

Always epic!
Celebrated my best friend's birthday and enjoyed guacamole and chips, crab cakes, grilled veggie salad with scallops that melted in your mouth. Ended with yummy red velvet cake (and generally I'm not a fan of red velvet cake, but it was so light with fluffy frosting) and ice cream with the signature sparkler. Every bite was delicious. Such a wonderful experience, as always.

it was my first trip to Los Angeles, CA. I wanted to try out the restaurant because i had seen it on tv and a bunch of celebrities frequent the place. The food was really good. i thought it would be bland and too expensive but I was actually surprised. the service was spot on as well. no complaints

As always the food was absolutely fantastic and the servers are wonderful. We were pretty disappointed that they have taken away the champagne service upon arrival and also have taken away the bag cookies at departure. I hope this is short lived.

Pricy to be a simple meal I guess you are paying more for the experience than what the food actually costs. Very unorganized, I did reservations 2 weeks before and still had to wait around 30-40 minutes to be seated, and they just gave us 2 glasses of “champagne” anyways, they don’t respect your reservation cause they keep taking people and not reserving tables for who actually made reservations. Also the service from the waitress was good They give you enough attention, but I’m not coming again.

Had a reservation at 1:15pm. We waited for 2 hours to be seated, brunch was over by the time we were seated. They did accommodate us by still making brunch even though it was over. I'm not sure how you can wait 2 hours with a reservation, even though we kept checking in. With that being said, the food was decent, but the waiter did not know the menu at all. He could not answer basic questions. There were no redeemable qualities after such high prices and poor service. Was hoping to like The Ivy as it has been on my list. Perhaps it was because of the holiday or perhaps it was due to the pandemic. However, I don't expect this level of service in certain establishments.

Service is always friendly and professional, but we were very surprised by how fast our food came to the table after we ordered (about 2minutes). Made us wonder whether it’s cooked to order. My first cup of drip coffee was served room temp and when I asked for a top off, they said the must replace the cup (meaning charge me for another). Ambience was great. COVID safety practices felt solid. Perfect place for Easter brunch.

Very nice and great place to hang out w/ great friend. The services would be better but due to the pandemic, it’s good. The foods are delicious, the decor is cozy & homey...fresh flowers every where. Been here several before and willing to come back for more - only if you have $150 for 2 people w/I the liquor. 😜🤗😎

I made reservations for Easter brunch with very low expectations. After all, we've all had holiday meals at restaurants resulting in disappointment with the quality of food and service as the places try to juggle the holiday demands. That was absolutely NOT the case at The Ivy. I have had many spectacular meals here, and Easter Sunday was no exception. Management was present and on top of things. They were fully staffed and engaged with customers. No wait for our table or our waiter. And to top it off, no lousy, limited holiday food. They were serving their full menu, and as always the food, bloody marys, and mimosas were out of this world! Sure, there's a hefty price tag that comes with dining here. But this is one place where you'll always get what you paid for in both quality of food and service (and ambiance!) And what that boils down to is spectacular, consistent management. My very favorite restaurant in all of LA!

The setting is lovely and decor is fabulous. The food is pretty average for what you pay. Decent but nowhere near the mark for the very high prices. Our experience was really degraded by a table of very drunk and boisterous people who were rude, insensitive, and offensive. These noisy people should have been quieted by the management. It ruined a very expensive meal on an otherwise lovely evening.

It’s sad what’s happened to the restaurant. The staff has changed and couldn’t care less. The food was at best—average (lobster and pasta) which has always been a favorite.

After many decades of being a regular at The Ivy, we won’t be back.

The host did not care that we had a reservation. He only cared about rich people coming in sliding him money to be seated right away. He allowed a rich older couple to sit on a four seat table when the entire party wasn’t even there but wouldn’t let me and my friend sit on a three seat seat table until my third friend got there. Funny enough I would have given him $20 as well if that is what it took to get seated but had no idea it was like that there.
