Everyone was extremely helpful on arrival. Very knowledgeable when we asked about gluten free options as one of our guest was celiac. Great food. Perfect for photo opportunities.

The waiter hardly interacted at all. Terrible service, no follow through. Waited an inordinate time for drink order, never asked about 2nd drink or dessert and didn't refill water even once

Even with COVID restrictions they were able to seat us right away. Outdoor patio was enjoyable. Service was okay and food was very good, but a little overpriced for what you get.

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.

We arrived at the restaurant, and the host was extremely unfriendly and arrogant. We had a reservation an hour later, and he claimed that they did not have any available tables. Interestingly enough, there was one available table, but he would not allow us to sit until our time came around. We waited an hour and ended up sitting at the same exact table that was empty an hour earlier. Even though I understand the issues related to reservations and people not turning up to take the table, his approach and demeanor was unacceptable.

My favorite spot in LA! We went directly there from the airport, and nothing welcomes us to California more than The Ivy!

The food was tasty and the atmosphere was relaxing. Not that great of a value for the money. We ordered one pasta, one salad and no alcoholic beverages. The total was $85 before tip.

This was our second time at The Ivy -- for breakfast. It was great. The decor is lovely and the food always outstanding. Service was even more than expected. The wait staff was thoughtful and helpful. Everything is fresh and more than satisfying.
