The music was too loud and the food came way too fast. We didn’t even finish the appetizers when the main course came. For the prize you could expect a little more space between the tables. It was ok overall but will probably never go back.

It's a wrap. Poor quality of ingredients. Sloppy preparation. Resting on its laurels. This place has turned into a "no go" zone, sadly.

This is not my first time at The Ivy and it will not be the last. I adore this little paradise in the middle of the city. The food is lovely and the service is perfection. One can sit outside and enjoy the weather or if one needs privacy, The Ivy staff ensures that privacy is what you get. There really is nothing negative I can say about this restaurant. It is worth the price, the drive or walk and is a refreshing break from the hectic city.

Cute restaurant, good food but it’s very busy and the service is rude and horrible. They know you come here because it’s famous so they don’t care how they treat you, which is a reason for me not to go back anymore. We had a reservation at 1:30 and got our table around 2:10. I had to wait in a tight room with serves who pushed me from right to left because there was no space. What’s the point of getting a reservation? After that we got a tiny table in the back, the servers didn’t even see us and ignored us. We asked for another table because I got anxious there and they ignored us again!!!!!! Every time I asked for something they ignored us. Servers there are so miserable, rude and bored. Not pleased. I understand it’s busy- just stick to your reservation instead of giving 10 other guests a reservation for 1:30.

We went for my mother's birthday lunch. From the moment we began ordering, we were informed there was a minimum per person which was very insulting. In my mother's dish, she found a hair embedded in the fish and as we pointed it out, the waiter looked at us speculatively. He never apologized but took the dish back without a replacement. When I got the bill, they left the entrée on and when we asked why, they brought over the host who told us it couldn't have been from the kitchen and basically called us liars. It was the most insulting, disgraceful experience I've had. And when I pointed that out, they took the bill back and only took off $20 for a $35 dish. It's the principal of it all and when someone is paying over $300 for a meal and tip of 18% is included, that is beyond ridiculous to be treated that way. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. WORST experience ever!

We’ve been going to the Ivy for decades. It’s a one-of-a-kind gem... no other restaurant in L.A. comes close to the atmosphere, outside patio, gorgeous bouquets of roses, champagne greeting, cookies to take home, and the food is always delicious! Everything on the menu is something you want to eat. I love, love, love the Ivy! And since I know longer live in West Hollywood, still drive into L.A. from Palm Springs just to to have lunch and then drive back to the desert. It’s that good!

I enjoyed my lunch and the dining experience however I did get sick immediately after I left the restaurant. I believe that it may have been the over priced sangria that I had ordered. I only drank a little bit and regrettably should have asked for a refund. Otherwise the food was outstanding as well as the ambience. I will return but will not order the Sangria

Every time we come to LA, we come to the Ivy, and always have a fantastic time!! The gorgeous rose bouquets at every turn and the excellent and vibrant service made our last visit so wonderful! Our server Daniel was gracious and fun, and our meal was delicious. We loved how the food was fresh and not over-salted. The glasses of champagne and rose we had were delicious and my husband's cucumber margarita made him an extra happy camper!! We will be back, thanks for a great lunch date!

This was our first meal at the Ivy and they certainly didn’t disappoint. From the welcome glass of champagne to the goodbye cookies, they took acceptional care of us. Our server Chris was extremely engaging and entertaining, which must have been tough after a long day working on a holiday. Everything we had was tasty and the patio was just perfect on such a warm evening. All in all a great experience and worth trying!

The ambiance was wonderful and the wait staff was lovely and attentive- But for a high supposedly establishment and majorly over priced menu the food was not up to standard . I have traveled far and wide and have eaten at many many restaurants around the world and was shocked at the bill. I have never actually been so shocked at a bill for substandard food in my life.

They table next to us was having a huge fight with their waiter for the same reasons I imagine.

I'm not sure why this is a hot spot except for the beautiful decor and great staff. The food was just not good at all. I was really sad about it, I was excited to have a nice dinner with my 2 kids and didn't think it would cost me nearly $500.00 for 1 adult and 2 little kids.
Diner beware.

Had Thanksgiving dinner with my mother. Was not expecting it to be $125.00 price fix per person. The Turkey was good my partner had a steak. The steak was tough and dry, my partner did not want to send it back and have to wait for something else to be cooked.

First time their for my mother and my partner. I ahd been there about 30 years ago for business.
The service was good. They gave a taste of some of their dessert 4 different ones. Out of this world!

That being said I think the Palm now in Beverly Hills is a better deal and more consitant in thier quality. I have never had bad service or a meal I did not like.

I have always enjoyed the Ivy, but this was our first time having the Thanksgiving menu.
The food wasn't great (especially the turkey option), and the set menu was a disappointment. The tiny samplers of sides and desserts didn't meet usual Ivy standards. I would recommend having a traditional Thanksgiving meal option, but also offering the regular menu.

I must say I felt a little insulted when I was placed behind a door when I requested to be away from loud parties in my request on OpenTable. I requested to sit towards the back and there were three available tables that were not occupied and I was told that they were going to be occupied and within a one and a half hour time frame of sitting in my seat I was ignored food was thrown on the table versus represented I requested a cup of hot water with slices of lemon and a bill came with a $7 charge. It's just constant. not too happy with my experience here too crowded/ pretentious. There was food still on our plate we were still eating and the servers kept trying to take our food away from us just rude I'm not accustomed to this.

Third time visiting this restaurant. First two times were fine. That was a while ago. This last time we felt very rushed, the waiter literally stood over us until we ordered even though we told him several times we hadn't decided. I usually like to "graze" and relax with wine and several appetizers so I can try many different dishes. We were told we couldn't do that and had to order a full meal each or a minimum of two appetizers each (and his body language was saying make it quick)If not we would be ushered inside even though we were settled on the patio. It appears that the inside is the "Time out" room for the uncooperative patrons. I wanted another glass of champagne and asked if I could have the complimentary glass my friend declined. Our waiter promptly shoved the drink menu in my face. My fried piped up and said she would just go up and get her own free glass. He finally caved and said he would bring it to her, which he did, which I drank! Food was downhill from my previous visits and my friend who isn't familiar with the LA restaurant scene or the previously stellar reputation of the Ivy couldn't understand why I would bring her here. The policy of a minimum dish order and seat placement is tacky and insulting. Never again!
