Really sad to see how far downhill the quality has gone. Truly mediocre.
Food and environment are great, but our server was a complete jerk. For example, he was legitimately agitated when we asked him "what's good here?", and when we asked if we had any other food coming he said "I don't know this is what you put in." Really? This is not a cheap meal but my family and I are more than happy to spend the money if the experience is on par with the cost. Unfortunately our server's performance was poor even for a fast food restaurant.
Our first visit. Quaint place, very popular, eclectic decor.
Saturday brunch, wait staff is amazing. Food was top shelf. A little on the pricey side but the free champagne, generous service and great food made it worth the visit.
Bad servise !!
bad communication !!! best decor good roses ...
Service late !!
In differents !!!
Waiter went missing for long periods...poured own wine. Ordered coffees after dinner but they never came. Most annoying (at 9:30pm) they starting cleaning the surrounding tables and stacking chairs...only 1:40 hours after we were seated. We dine at The Ivy often...this was the worst ever....
Restaurant setting is really cute, ambience is nice and the service was good - if anything they are over attentive and you get asked the same thing by three different waiters one after the other. The food though is really bad for the price, it sounds good on the menu but it is the quality I would expect when paying $8 per meal and not $35 per meal minimum. If you go it’s for the experience, not the food.
Unfortunately I was impressed,Caesar Salad was just OK. A 4 slice pizza was $75..seriously! Charming decor and cute place, service was good but felt like the waiter was up selling everything! Like the complimentary Champagne when you arrive, but ultimately you pay for it!
Waiter was not up to the usual Ivy standard. Amazing how that can change the experience.
Absolutely delicious from start to finish. Pricey, but worth every single penny. You will not be disappointed, I promise you.
Was seated at a table just inside the door that really shouldn't be there. Every employee used the back of my chair as a handle to turn with as they moved to and from the patio (en route to the kitchen). Also it was a cold and rainy night and the table felt like it was outside. My daughter and I were chilled the entire time. Also, the waiter took a very long time before coming to get a drink order and blamed the house computer system (for having to hand deliver food orders to the kitchen). The fries and chicken were sub par and therefore not worth the exorbitant prices I paid. Years ago, I think that table wouldn't have existed, the waiter would have been more present, the food better.
A little bit overprice, but overall is VeryGood
Crowdy at times
Wonderful! Best restaurant in LA!!!
Been coming here since the 80's. Its very nice and consistently great food.
We were greeted with a free glass of bubbly so our dinner started out great. I had the delicious grilled vegetable salad with lobster. My date had the spaghetti with meatballs that was quite substantial. After a dessert of brownie and ice cream we were given two free chocolate chip cookies for the road. We’ll be back when we return to the area!
This was our first visit for dinner (pre-theatre downtown) so we arrived early and were seated immediately, enjoyed the quiet unhurried pace and had a lovely delicious dinner leaving with plenty of time to spare. Food and service were excellent and accommodating; we asked for some changes and they were happy to make them.. great fresh sea bass.. perfectly cooked vegetables.. crab cakes, salad all wonderful..
Excellent service also Matt miss fear valet parking highly recommend
Such a great experience!
We were received with complementary champagne, outstanding service and the quality of food was excellent.
I’ve been going to the Ivy in Santa Monica for a very long time and it was a long time since I went to the Ivy in Beverly Hills on Robertson. The service was horrible, the food was subpar, and they even brought us out free desserts at the end of the meal to make up with forgetting one of our main courses which they ended up taking off the table because they were unhappy that we were not pleased. I would never again go back to this restaurant
So disappointed in The Ivy this visit. Service was terrible and dinner was mediocre at best. We’ve always looked forward to dining at The Ivy when in LA, but I unfortunately I think this was our last time.
Been going here on New Years Eve for many years in a row. May reconsider for next year... 1) we waited far too long for our table. Reservation for 7p, seated at 7:45p. 2) the ambiance is very nice, but you pay a price for cozy here when there are big crowds. It feels crunched in and often borderlines on being very loud. On the plus side, food is excellent, the rooms are festive and charming, outdoors is heated and special, and aside from being pricey - the menu is creative.
The expierence is awesome. However the food was pretty plain for the price. But again its the experience, name and location you pay for.
Made my reservation one week in advance and had to wait 20 minutes for a table inside on a cold night.
Some of the food was overly spicy/hot, especially the Caesar salad and the cocktail sauce.
Great food and great staff. Wife loved the setting.. 4 thumbs up!
Overall it was great, very crowded the servers don't really have time for the guests. Beautiful decor, will like to visit the location in London, United kingdom.
Server suggested to my guest a Dom perinion champagne, they charge me $ 70 for one glass of champagne served should’ve alerted us of that unreasonable charge, it is really a rip off
I deserve a credit for that amount
Excellent location great foods
Everything was perfect except the music was grating, harsh and too loud. They need soft and pleasant music that stays in the background. I
A little too pricey for the food quality but a nice location.
Very negative. We had a reservation and still waited for over 45 min for our table. It was crowded and loud. Service was poor. You were lucky to see your server more that twice. I do not understand the hype! We will never return.
Food and atmosphere were excellent as usual. Service was poor this time, very unusual.
Outstanding food, the service could be better
Everything was absolutely wonderful!
The Ivy never disappoints! Love love love this fabulous gem!!
Really crowded and checking in was confusing
Beautiful ambience, lovely service, delicious food. Quite overpriced but I guess that’s what you expect in LA.
Perfect, quaint little place! Food was fantastic and the ambiance is dreamy!! Champagne welcome and cookie farewell, does it get any better than that!
Fried chicken meal was fried chicken breasts. Not tasty at all. Waiter was not very attentive and preferred the male patrons.
