We were crammed into a table inches next to tables on either side. People who sat down next to us were shouting into their cell phones for 30 minutes and when I spoke to our server he just shrugged and said he couldn’t say anything to them. Horrible experience.

Always a pleasure (even with the price increase) And even though we couldn't get a brunch time reservation - we were able to order the insanely delicious crab benedict... The staff is wonderful as was our server!

I've been coming to The Ivy for over 20 years, and it still gets my vote for prettiest restaurant. The ambiance is beautiful and the food is delicious. We were there on a very busy Saturday night so the service was slow, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending it or visiting again. The complimentary champagne while we waiting for our table was appreciated.🥂

Disappointment from years past:
Although taste was there, portion sizes (mesquite grilled salmon, lobster tacos) were a fraction of former selves. Salmon was 6 ozs . at most ($45!); lobster tacos had a few tiny bites of lobster in each.
Gave up asking for butter for baked potato after 2 requests. Likewise for bread.

Good service once we were seated . The food was average, we ordered the seafood platter for two . Lobster was tough , 3 little cups of sauces and that was the dish , no starch or a vegetable included. Overall the restaurant is out dated and overpriced.

What can I say, but sublime. Came her for the first time (I know: later bloomer) for Valentine's day. Reservations, service, menu, food, and overall experience were perfect. I first thought pricey, when I looked at the menu. The quality of food justifies twice the price.

Wonderful service and amazing food. Went on Valentine’s Day for dinner. Even with the crowd and extra work that comes with that holiday we were treated like the only people there. Loved the food and the selection. I was moving my daughter into her college apartment and flying back the next morning. It was a great way to celebrate together. A top notch experience we will always remember! Thanks!

Although it was Valentine's Day and fully booked, we were able to order off the regular menu, the food was delicious, and the service was great! The complimentary glass of champagne added a festive touch and was a nice way to start. Both the crab stuffed lobster and fish and chips (which included cod, scallops, shrimp, potato and onion rings all fried) were perfect!

One of my favorite restaurants for lunch/brunch or a daytime special occasion and popular Beverly Hills spot. I’ve been there at night and the ambiance isn’t as great. My only negative feedback is with service. Servers don’t provide a genuine service when it comes to recommendations and this has been the case every time I go. “What’s the best thing on the menu?” The two most expensive. “What bottle of wine you suggest with my food?” Obviously the most expensive. “Ordering a Margarita?” Well, it goes great with Don Julio 1942 even if mixed with lemon and a chaser. Nothing wrong with upselling, but sometimes you expect some “insider information” regarding a hidden gem on the menu.

The Ivy is a wonderful experience with interesting table settings in various areas with hundreds of beautiful multi-color roses. It is always busy, so I believe that is why the service is a bit slow, but it is accurate. Great food!

The reservation time was honored immediately--5 minute wait! (excellent!) The service was terrible--asked for bread plate 3 times before it arrived. My fish entree and that of our guest were sent back. Fish was not fresh. Crab claws were delicious, but it was he smallest appetizer portion I have ever seen. Also--whoever cracked them open did not do a very good job, since there were tiny bits of shell in almost every bite. Dessert was very good. All in all, I would not go back and would not recommend it to anyone, even though it is one of the most upscale and popular restaurants in Los Angeles. It is not worth the money one bit! Not enjoyable--sending entrees back and biting into shells! My husband and I have been there many times-- but now we are very disappointed and disolusioned with The Ivy!

Got seated 30 minutes before our reservation which was great. The wait staff was plentiful, but didn't see the need for it. Not many people waiting to be seated. Anyway, that's fine.
Once seated we got the menu which was had a good variety of food. Wine and food was very overpriced compared to what we got. I have no idea why this place is so popular. Must be tradition. Not a bad place, but not great either. Just another LA restaurant that's pretty. For the price there are WAY better places in LA.

Great service, overprisede food. But you pay to be at this place because IT is a Hot Spot now. My daughter GOT IT reccomrnded. I t was important for her to visit on our trip to LA.
Great server from England, the other severs were also very friendly. This makes an overcrowded restaurant nice and friendly. The music out of the speakers should in my opinion been turned off. But then again I am 54 and "hate all that music" when trying to hear what my daughter is telling me.
