Californian
An LA landmark since its opening in 1983, The Ivy is the place to go for a great time in the City of Angels. From its star-studded crowd, to its jamming music, friendly wait-staff, killer cocktails and unbeatable food, this cozy, hip, neighborhood restaurant exemplifies the easy glamour and charm that California is all about.

It is always a beautiful setting especially on a nice day. That being said, the prices are a bit steep and I didn't really care for being ushered out after only a hour to make room for a large party.
The lobster ravioli was outstanding, as always, and overall a very nice luncheon.

This was my 3rd time going there and it was another bad experience. My mom likes the ambience so she wanted to go but the food is extremely overpriced, service is really bad. Servers are incredibly rude and condesending. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

The Ivy is tired and their making rookie mistakes - Needs a management reboot - surley staff, wait time was 30 mins between courses, host was more interested in his cell phone than seating us, sent back the salad ( looked like it came from Ralphs salad bag), sent back the bread ( burnt and hard as rocks), Pasta- the waiter was embarrassed that the portion size was appetizer size and returned with more in a bowl.

What a cute iconic LA restaurant. The ambiance is very sweet. Love all the fresh flowers and citrus fruits spread throughout the restaurant. Each room is a little different and unique. Complimentary champagne to start the night was a great touch. All of the food from the appetizer to the entree and dessert was great. Service was not as great as i expected for a fine dining restaurant, just not very attentive. Also when we first arrived there was no clear direction on where to go to check in and even when we were directed to the right spot there was no where to stand and wait while someone came up to help, other than that everything was great. Would definitely come back and recommend the Ivy to others

We didn't know the restaurant but seeing it from the car frequently it was always full off people, and the flowers were so pretty. We looked it up on the net and made a reservation.
We were seated inside in front of the fireplace. The restaurant is really beautiful inside ant out!
Service and food, excellent! Crab cakes were really excellent.
Price was not inexpensive but worth the value.

Beautiful decor, with stunning colourful roses everywhere. Complimentary champagne on arrival, and friendly greetings. Raspberry daiquiris were wonderful! I had the lobster ravioli in pink sauce, which was truly delicious. Complimentary scones with jam and butter, and the most delicious chic chip cookies to take home, which were dangerously addictive! The valet parking was a great idea, and surprisingly affordable at $11.

I love the Ivy. I have been going there for years. However, even though the service and ambiance is a ten, sadly the menu choices from the past are about 1/3 of what they used to be and the portions are way smaller. If I had any comments, those would be my concern.

The food is fresh and organic. The ambiance is beautiful. The fresh flowers outside in the garden seating area are stunning. The food is pricey but well worth it. The music can be a bit loud at times for conversation - that was one of my slight criticisms. The garden table area is also a bit tight for seating.

Worth it. It is expensive, but not to the extreme. Main courses are $40-$50. Food is good, but not top-restaurant good. Ambiance is great Plenty of friendly waiters, specially the Mexicans.

Beautiful patio setting and great food, at a hefty price. The be and be seen restaurant was filled with more designed labels than I like. Although the food was great, the service was not what I expect for those prices. My husband ordered a cocktail when we ordered our food. we had to ask for it more than four times before it was finally brought (not with the appetizers but after half of the main course was eaten).

Mother’s Day with my son at the Ivy was spectacular. We were given complimentary champagne as we waited for our table. There were fresh, beautiful roses everywhere. It looked and smelled glorious. We were seated before we finished our first champagne, and our waiter was very professional and attentive. We enjoyed the scones and our breakfast was so delicious. Thank you for making our day so special.

The Ivy is a good place for a special breakfast, but the food is nothing special and of course it’s expensive. You go for the experience, not for the food.
