Outstanding as usual, great service, always happy to be there
It was a very nice experience. Expensive as usual, but nice.
Great , as usual
Manager not willing to accommodate seating request
Pancake portion was sparse with over cooked bacon - overall food was exceptionally underwhelming
Especially poor value
Service was “rushed”
Seem to be pushing patrons through quickly in case any “celebrities” arrive
Perfect representation of LA as “Douchebag City, USA”
Having been to lots of fancy WH/BH establishments for some reason The Ivy was different. The staff was friendly, the ambience was amazing!
On top of just being a Friday night in West Hollywood it was a rainy day so the patio was closed which made it a semi mad house and you wouldn’t have known because the staff was so professional.
Hats off to them and they have a new happy couple for date nights!!
Our fav in LA- everything exceeded expectations!
Birthday my favorite place in the wirld
Amazing atmosphere, perfect to bring visitors.
Tenía 5 años de no haber regresado a este lugar, para mi gusto, ha bajado su calidad en todos los sentidos
Went for lunch at The Ivy for the experience. Knew it would be expensive, but prices were pretty absurd for what you get. Was particularly annoyed when the waiter asked if we wanted sparkling or still water. We said still thinking it was tap and before we knew it, an $11 bottle of water was being poured. Thought that was pretty sneaky. Of our 4 entrees, 1 was really good and the other 3 were below average. Pizza was soggy and had to be eaten with fork and knife. Went to The Ivy once and now don't need to return. For our 4 entrees, bottle of water, glass of OJ, our total (with tax and tip) was $217. Definitely not worth it.
It was delicious, but $9 is crazy for a glass of iced tea.
Sangria was $32. That’s a bit absurd! Food was great and service was outstanding. Thank you!
Great atmosphere, wonderful food.
Impeccable Service. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Went knowing it was a tourist/B-list celebrity trap, but was with teens and thought they would enjoy it for that reason. Totally overpriced (more than expected) and incredibly mediocre food and service.
The Ivy was definitely a gem! The ambience is worth it all! They offered a complimentary champagne while we waited for our table. Always a plus! The menu was diversified and the food was delicious. We were glad someone had recommended we eat here while visiting LA.
Delicious, fresh food. Great service with beautiful ambiance. Our meal highlights are my Bloody Mary, shrimp tacos, complementary champagne and the fudge sauce on the ice cream!! Yum yum yum
Brunch at The Ivy...lives up to the hype. Love the complimentary champagne on arrival - very old school...beautiful flowers...expensive but worth it.
We had a reservation at 1:00 for 3 and 45 minutes later they sat us. My main frustration was they seated another table of 3 ahead of us and they had a 1:30 reservation. The food was great, but pricey. I’ve never bought an $8 iced tea, but it was good iced tea with mint, lemon and sugar cane. The presentation was a 10! Lastly, I wish they had a kids menu.
Can’t say enough about the service and excellent customee care that we received! It’s been a few years since I was last at the Ivy, so I was expecting the overpriced food, but was with a friend who wanted to go. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted with a glass of champagne and a host who offered to put our bags in the office! We were never rushed and overall had a wonderful experience!
It is a beautiful restaurant and noted for being romantic. The big problem is that it is so noisy that you cannot have a decent conversation with anyone at your table - so that's hardly romantic. It's really too bad that in such a beautiful setting with great food, you are constantly on edge because of the noise level and not being able to visit with your companions without yelling. Maybe it's better when the open air part is open, but with rain and it being closed, it was really miserable. The music got louder and everyone just talked louder.
Amazing service. Started with a complimentary glass of champagne. A choice of inside or outside dining was given. Great wine selection! My daughter had the pasta and found it to be perfect. I had the combo steak and lobster and it was delicious. The mashed potatoes were excellent. Overall, it was a delightful experience. Highly recommended!
This place is best for brunch. Not all food on the menu is great but I do have my favorites..
We always loved the Ivy except for this experience. We were in LA for 2 1/2 days and went to the Ivy 3 times in that short period! We are kind, nice, classy and fun people. On this last visit our waiter was unfriendly and very rude and the head waiter or acting manager was just plain nasty. They completely soured our experience. We were upset and very disappointed with our experience. We asked to speak to the manager and were told there was no manager on duty at the time.
Been dining at the ivy for years now. despite it being 9:30am and only 20% of the tables outside being occupied, the manager insisted that a friend of ours who stopped by had to order food as they have a “minimum of $30 per guest policy” - when I reminded him that we are already above that threshold, and it shouldn’t matter who eats the food, he still insisted that it’s the policy. VERY RUDE. NOT HOSPITABLE. It would be fine if the restaurant was at 100% occupancy and people are waiting, but I don’t understand how on earth does one manager justify being so rude to revenue generating guests during non peak hours.
This is a delightful restaurant that has you leaving happy that you dined there. The restaurant and staff were accommodating. I had arugula salad, black cod and key lime pie. All were wonderful. The complimentary glass of champagne when you arrive at the restaurant is a festive touch that begins the dining experience distinctively. The dozens of fresh-cut roses on the tables, the English garden décor and the intimacy of the dining spaces left me wanting to return soon.
This is a beautiful restaurant with pleasant service. The food and drink are extremely overpriced and the food is very average. Almost $18 for a Bloody Mary is more than any restaurant I’ve ever been to.
The Ivy is exactly as it pretends to be. It is a ridiculously expensive restaurant where people come to look for celebrities and to be seen.
The breakfast lox and scrambled eggs might be worth it if it were half the price of $39. The portions are very small and I've had better eggs, although the smoked salmon was of top quality. Unexpectedly, the coffee cups are huge and are actually refilled at no additional cost. My daughter had a glass of juice for $12.75.
The service is impeccable, polished and immaculate. I would've preferred to give our server a 50% tip if the prices were more in line with any semblance of reality.
This is a place to come to when visiting Los Angeles if just for the experience. If you live here and come here routinely, I would imagine your every day driver is a Bentley Bentayga.
Always consistent ...a very special place with outstanding service
Exceptional service and food. Decor and ambiance was perfect.
All great but service was too slow... Monday night under staffed?
From NYC and when here I try to visit at least once. It remains wonderful as always.
The spanish reservation officer is very bad.
makes you feel like an insider. food is not the reason to go!
Went for lunch on Sunday ... the ambience was perfect ... very crowded and noisy but beautiful ... food was good ... probably should have had a salad ... they looked great!
Wonderful, as always. Lovely to have little “treats” such as champagne on arrival and cookies when we finish.
Great food and service.
The lobster linguini was amazing!
Beautiful atmosphere joined by Jazz music! Great food & service.
French toast is highly recommended.
I was really excited to be able to get a reservation here for Sunday Brunch. There was a lot going on with the decor that brought a smile to my face. Lots of fresh flowers in vibrant colours that really set the tone for the Brunch.
I was a little set back by the prices of the menu. The food was great, don't get me wrong, but I was not sure that the $37.00 for the eggs Benedict or $ 33.00 for a ham and cheese omelette was being fair. The place was packed and I was pleased by that. The vibe was great and the characters that dine here are worth the gawk.
I know this place is always a place where you can see some "famous" people, and although we did not see any, it was still fun to see how busy it was.
