It isn’t cheap. It’s worth every penny. Ambiance for days. Attentive service. The menu is pretty big, which makes choosing so much harder. The complimentary champagne as you enter, the cookies as you leave. Perfect.

The menu is extensive with unique and inventive choices. The drinks are amazing, often loaded with fresh fruit or fresh squeezed fruit. I have brunched here several times and the impeccable service never disappoints.

Place had many empty table when I arrived. We had a reservation. They tried to seat us butted up against another table. We were a party of 2. They offered us other tables as the same. When asked if we could have a 3 or 4 person table he said they were booked solid. We stayed for an hour and EVERY single table was still empty. Taking in consideration that as a society we are battling a pandemic. I thought this was unconscious-able. After decades of dining there. One would think they were concerned about their customers....Shame on you Ivy!!!

We were placed in a small table wedged in the back of the restaurant even though there were open tables in more spacious areas. Courtesy champagne is a plus, $50 double blackberry cocktail suggested by waiter was a negative. All the food beautifully prepared and presented. Birthday dessert very festive. Nice overall experience

The Ivy is a beautiful place to eat. We’ve eaten hear many times. Unfortunately this time I ordered my favorite grilled vegetable salad with lobster. I asked if the chef could mix up half the salad for dinner and package the other half without dressing to go. I was told no problem. I was given the whole salad dressed and they totally skimped on the lobster. I’ve had this exact meal at least six times. When the check came, the waiter said sorry about giving you the whole salad but we can wrap up what you have left. Anybody who’s ever tried to save dressed salad knows it’s no good the next day. I’m so disappointed in this most recent visit that it will be a very long time before we go back, if we go back.

Poor service. Valet took forever. Was just standing ignoring customers. No hostess or host. No one greet us. Food was bad. I had filet raw and terrible tasting sauce on it and the Mexican rice was ice cold and very overcooked. We also had the Chilean Sea Bass and the portion was tiny and the white rice on the plate was cold. Bass was crunchy on the outside and mushy on the inside. Bill was $140 plus tip and $12 for valet for 2 with 2 ice teas. This place is really over rated. Disappointed the food and service sucked.

El mesero no quería darme mesa afuera y el restaurante tenía 15 mesas vacías. Le pedí me enseñe su lista de reservaciones y solo tenía 2 de 2 personas. Me dijo que tenis que consumir tres platillos por persona o no me daba servicio y le dije que si y aún así no me quiso sentar afuera. Me fui entre a OpenTable reserve y llame y pedí mesa afuera. Entre a los dos minutos me senté con tres amigos más y el mesero despota hablo con el otro mesero y nos señaló. Comimos delicioso y al final el servicio estuvo excelente. No veo porque un mesero prepotente prefiera dejar el restaurante vacío y no dar servicio en terraza si hay mucho lugar.

Met with bubbles and our host Gram was simply wonderful. Caviar to the best fried chicken awaits to be enjoyed one bite at time.

Highly over rated experience. The food is extremely ordinary at this “ to be seen scene “ with very tired decor and an over priced menu in an already expensive ‘hood that has plenty of options to open your wallet. Time has passed this place by yet I am one that doesn’t care if I see an Entertainment type ( we did , so what?) . I actually go to dining establishments for the food , ambiance and experience. This has little to offer, especially for deep fried crab cakes that had no fresh flavour nor hint of any inventive twist. Shake Shack was more fun hours later!!

We were never asked about refilling our water. The food was average. The lettuce was wilted in the Caesar salad. The brownie dessert was dry. Beautiful day to sit on the patio, but the food and service did not live up to expectations.
