For over 3 years now, my friends and I have been visiting an iconic L.A. restaurant monthly. One friend writes the story. Another friend snaps photos. The article will appear soon in the Palisades News. The Ivy was one of our very best eateries!

Have not been to The Ivy in a while. It was better than remembered.
Flowers were a WOW! It was the perfect place to celebrate a friends
birthday. Food was terrific and service was top notch.
Loved the sparkler on the birthday dessert.

Will not wait so long in between visits.

Love going to The Ivy! It's a great restaurant for celebrating, complete with champagne, gorgeous flowers and beautiful surroundings. The food is delicious, service good and those amazing desserts!!!! Just left there and I am happily eating my yummy chocolate chip cookies (bagged and handed to you when you leave)! All in all, a wonderful lunch!

I really wish the all male waiters were just a little nicer, and more accommodating to me and my guests. They made us wait for an outside table when I had a reservation. I love the setting, and the roses so much that the bad service won't ruin the experience of dining at the lovely patio at the Ivy... the cookies to go used to be much fresher.

Ok, the lobster ravioli was worth the trip!! Lobster risotto not so much, the seafood risotto very good and with the added complimentary champagne, I’d go back again! Oh, get the calamari appetizer!
They even give you complimentary chocolate chip cookies when you leave! 😁

Beautiful setting, wonderful service and phenomenal food. The staff were attentive but not intrusive, the lights and flowers were dreamy and the food was superb. Enjoyed the lobster ravioli and lobster Cobb salad, with starters and a gorgeous bottle of NZ sauv.
Will definitely visit again as this is our new special place when visiting LA.

Gorgeous ambiance but had way better crab cake eggs Benedict at Chez Jay for 1/3rd price. Sconces were slightly burnt. Calamari and fresh squeezed tangerine juice were highlights. Came on Mother's Day when they were offering a complimentary glass of champagne but when I asked for one I was questioned whether I was waiting for a table, if I had a reservation and that I was only allowed one glass per guest...super offensive as I had not had one glass (and yes I was waiting for my table for which I had a reservation). If the food had been better and had I not been humiliated I would give this place 5 stars even with the hefty price tag.

I was visiting my daughter in Los Angeles for Mother's Day and we were playing tourist because she is relatively new to living there, so we went to The Ivy for brunch. The Ivy is lovely and the champagne welcome and beautiful roses everywhere are just what you would expect. After that, things went downhill. We were seated on the patio, and tables are too close together. A woman of size was placed at the table next to us, and there was no way she (or even a thin person) could be expected to squeeze by. Our table was knocked, sending my silverware to the ground and our coffee creamer spilled. Nothing was done. I had to ask for new silverware. We had to ask for scones, which should have been served without us having to ask. Our waiter acted ( in every sense of the word) like he was doing us a big favor. I eventually got new silverware, but the other silverware remained on the ground the entire time. My meal was tasty, but cool but the time it arrived. Now we can say we've been, but we won't be going back. The Ivy is cute and charming but it's not all that, at least not anymore.

My son took me, my friend and my daughter here for Mother's Day on Saturday lunch hour to avoid the crowd. It is my favorite dish, lobster pasta. 3 of us ordered lobster pasta and my daughter ordered lobster with french fry. I should say the best french fry I had in my lifetime. I have been coming here since year 2005. I received a free champagne on this day. I would like to know the name so, I can order a glass when I come to eat lobster again. Best food but, portion got smaller.... I understand though.... Because food pricing been going up. you have the best lobster pasta in this area. Thanks to my son and IVY for making my day special. There were many waiters but, when we need them they are not around.... I thought waiters are suppose constantly on eye contact with customer. Table next to me, was raising hands very high to get waiter attention?? I hope Ivy do re-train waiters to be more attentive to customers. Thank you.

please have the waiters quote the price of the specials. $59 for a pasta dish
is a little much. Not knowing the price is irritating, especially at that amount.

It was great. Celebrated Mother’s Day a day early. Nice, clean, busy but good busy, service was timely not slow. Everyone was very pleasant and courteous. While the food was more expensive than expected, don’t think I’ve ever paid $36 for an omelet, it was a really good omelet.

Lovely setting with romantic abundance of roses well lighted with wonderful ambiance. The menu had changed since our last visit. Alas, they no larger serve the extra delicious lasagna with tiny meatballs. Instead their menu has taken a Mexican twist. And we found the Caesar salad uninspiring and very bland. I ordered the rack of lamb, good, but nothing unusual. My husband ordered the Soft Shell Crabs, a special, which he enjoyed. Still, you feel special and grateful for the dining experience. Although, not crazy about the current menu, I am addicted to the atmosphere and celebrity watching. Great fun for a special occasion.
